Texas author Neiki Jones’ awe-inspiring new book figures to be a huge must read

 


And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. (Galatians 6:9 KJV)


GETTIN’ SPIRITUALLY FIT

DESTINY STEPS — In the coming weeks, a massive portion of Neiki Jones’ vision will ceremoniously come full circle with the release of her first book entitled, “When The Pieces Begin to Fit.”

DALLAS — It’s doesn’t matter what she endured in the past.

It’s all working out for the good for Neiki Jones.

Consider, for instance, the immeasurable strides Jones has made as a rising author.

During an interview this week with Making Headline News, Jones spoke intensely about how she has blessed mightily to connect with her long-awaited vision, particularly through her compelling gift as a writer.

“God actually gave me the vision to write a book about three years ago,” Jones recalled. “I began to write, then life happened and I stopped.”

Fortunately for Jones, a Houston-area author who is a native of Birmingham, Alabama, she was determined not to allow the hustle and bustle of life deter her from moving forward with her God-mandated assignment.

And, in the coming weeks, a massive portion of Jones’ vision will ceremoniously come full circle with the release of her first book entitled, “When The Pieces Begin to Fit.”


PRESALE ORDER NEIKI JONES’ BOOK: https://www.facebook.com/neikij

A book that will officially debut on the market on October 10, Jones’ “When The Pieces Begin To Fit” a testament, of sorts, of the solid work she has exemplified in recent years, both in the natural and the spirit.

A book that will officially debut on the market on October 10, Jones’ “When The Pieces Begin To Fit” is a testament, of sorts, of the solid work she has exemplified in recent years, both in the natural and the spirit.

“In 2018, that is when the dynamic of the content of the book changed along with the title,” Jones said.

Despite the name change of her first book, it’s safe to assume that Jones’ freshman written work will undoubtedly be a thing of beauty.

For starters, this spiritually-empowering and spiritually gut-checking project, by all accounts, is a printed sermon in its own right, given the featured and pivotal message this writer aspires to get across to her reading audience.


“The divine message I am sending to the audience through this book is that regardless of what life throws at you that giving up is not an option,” explained Jones, sounding very much like a missionary or licensed evangelist. “Also, (you must) not allow fear or people’s opinions stop you from reaching your full potential.”


Let the church say Amen.

But wait. There’s more to this awe-inspiring book that figures to be a constant page-turner for those we deem it necessary to purchase it.

“Never let anyone define who you are, and there is greatness on the inside of you,” said Jones, offering more of what her readers are in for through her new book. “We all have been purposed with a gift and the gift that is on the inside of you might be dormant, but you must connect to the right source. You have to activate that which is on the inside of you.”


THUS SAID THE LORD…

Suddenly, Jones felt compelled to offer a rather intriguing, captivating illustration as it pertains to breaking down her message.

“Just like a battery in our car, when it goes dead, we have jumper cables and have to connect to a battery that has power in order for the car to run,” Jones explained. “(We) just have to make sure we are connected to another battery that has power and not another dead battery.”

A book she began composing in August 2018, Jones needed just shy of a year to complete “When The Pieces Begin To Fit.”

“The (single, most) underlying reason for me to produce this book was to provide hope to those whose lives or situations seem hopeless,” Jones said.

As Jones acknowledged, a few of her peers sensed that her book was long overdue.

“When I first let others know that I was writing a book, the feedback I received was, ‘It is about time,’” Jones said. “So many individuals would tell me that it is time for my story to come out to help others.”

Now that her life-enhancing project is weeks away from making its  ceremonious debut, Jones has announced that another book is surely on the horizon, hopefully much sooner than later.

Interestingly, Jones has become a fixture through the ALAYA  Ministries, a nonprofit organization that’s accompanied by an acronym, which stands for: Activating Leadership To Accomplish Your Ambitions.

Interesting, Jones has become a fixture through the ALAYA  Ministries, a nonprofit organization that’s accompanied by an acronym, which stands for: Activating Leadership To Accomplish Your Ambitions.

Widely regarded as a broad-based community outreach organization, ALAYA  Ministries’ strategic emphasis is dedicated largely to promoting empowerment to women, men and children.

According to organizers for ALAYA  Ministries, this is done by equipping them to achieve leadership skills through support services, personal growth, classes and workshops.

In addition, this allows them to become self-sufficient which, according to ministry officials, is considered unlocking the potential of effective leaders.

Fortunately for Jones, a Houston-area author who is a native of Birmingham, Alabama, she was determined not to allow the hustle and bustle of life deter her from moving forward with her God-mandated assignment.

As for her book, Jones said: “I want people to know that we all have experienced our ‘there’ moment, and to be honest, we still might be in our ‘there,’ but you will come out. In your darkest moments, trust God even more, lean on your faith even more, and see the salvation of the Lord come through for you.

“It is important to understand the season that which you are in,” Jones added. “The higher one goes, expect adversity, but know that God is with you and He is carrying you when you cannot carry yourself.”

Because at the end of the real day, it’ll all work out for your good — something to which this author can greatly attest.

Houston-area author Nicole Michelle advancing the kingdom mightily through her immeasurable writing gift


And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose; For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters; And those He predestined, He also called; those He called, He also justified; those He justified, He also glorified; What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:28-31 KJV)


PROVERBS 31 AFFECT 

WOMAN OF MANY HATS — Once a catalyst in the Corporate America sector — during which she assumed the role as an Executive Director with an international public accounting firm, which was accompanied by a multiple six-figure income — Nicole Michelle has proven to be a crafty author, of sorts, given she has assembled three books to date. Three of her most prized written works: “Overcoming Mediocrity,” “Prayers Of The Righteous That Availeth Much,” and “COMMON WEALTH: Looks Just Like You.”

DALLAS — Prayer. Purpose. Power.

To her distinctly unique credit, these are just a trio of spiritual superlatives that greatly sum up who Nicole Michelle is.

According to a detailed introduction at https://nicolemichelle.com/, Nicole Michelle is widely regarded as an accomplished evangelist, one who has been appropriately dubbed a “multi- dimensional” Proverbs 31 woman whom, much to her delight, firmly believes when much is given, even more is required.

Once a catalyst in the Corporate America sector — during which she assumed the role as an Executive Director with an international public accounting firm, which was accompanied by a multiple six-figure income — Nicole Michelle has proven to be a crafty author, of sorts, given she has penned three books to date.

Three of her most prized written works: “Overcoming Mediocrity,”Prayers Of The Righteous That Availeth Much,” and “COMMON WEALTH: Looks Just Like You.”

For Nicole Michelle, each of her awe-inspiring books is a thing of beauty, in large part because these projects are steadily having a massive impact, particularly in the Body of Christ.

“In 2012, I went through a prayer desert where I literally could not pray,” Nicole Michelle told Making Headline News this week. “(I’m) a prayer warrior and an intercessor….but I could not pray.  The only words I could utter were, ‘Lord, bless the mess.’ That is what my life was at that time, a mess. But God turned my mess into my message.”

Interestingly, what this Christian-based author had ultimately come to discover was that uttering “Lord, bless my mess” was a sufficient enough dialogue with the Father that would give way to her acquiring the much-anticipated breakthrough she so desperately sought at the time.

IN HER OWN WORDS — “’Prayers Of the Righteous That Availeth Much’ is dedicated to the believers, individuals, intercessors, and prayer warriors who struggle to pray when the cares of life become overwhelming,” Nicole Michelle said.

“God spoke to me and said, ‘If you could not pray as the prayer warrior and intercessor that you are, what about my other children?’” Nicole Michelle recalled. “God downloaded over 350 prayer topics to me and I released my first volume of 110 prayer topics in February 2017.”

Not to be outdone, it was because Nicole Michelle had exemplified unwavering faith that God, in turn, ceremoniously bestowed upon her the fruit of her labor by allowing her to release the sophomore volume of financial devotionals in April 2019, a development that ironically unfolded on her 45th birthday.

And just like that, she had steadfastly found her niche in this, the ever-so-competitive authorship industry.

“I wanted to circumvent any other prayer desert,” said Nicole Michelle, explaining in detailed the purpose for her books. “My books are meant to be catalysts that allow individuals to jump start their prayer life through daily devotional time with God.

“’Prayers Of the Righteous That Availeth Much’ is dedicated to the believers, individuals, intercessors, and prayer warriors who struggle to pray when the cares of life become overwhelming,” Nicole Michelle added.

Interestingly, what this Christian-based author had ultimately come to discover was that uttering “Lord, bless my mess” was a sufficient enough dialogue with the Father that would give way to her acquiring the much-anticipated breakthrough she so desperately sought at the time.

As for “COMMON WEALTH: Looks Just Like You,” this Houston-area author emphasized, among other things, that this project was designed to allow individuals to become what she appropriately describes as their “best financial self,” a rather unique and essential disposition that aligns with 3 John 1:2, she acknowledged.

A beloved mother, mentor, executive business woman, humanitarian, philanthropist, publisher, and an independent certified speaker, Nicole Michelle’s authorship talents were initially put on display sometime Fall 2016.

Subsequently, her first volume was released in Spring 2017, followed by the ensuing volume approximately two years later.

Not to be outdone, it was because Nicole Michelle had exemplified unwavering faith that God, in turn, ceremoniously bestowed upon her the fruit of her labor by allowing her to release the sophomore volume of financial devotionals in April 2019, a development that ironically unfolded on her 45th birthday.

To her credit, she’s since been as good as advertised as a rising and gifted author.

To God be the glory.

“I want the readers to know that they can stay connected to the Father through prayer and that they are able to tap into God’s power and achieve the lifestyle of health, wealth, and abundance that God has desired for us as believers,” said Nicole Michelle, explaining the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience through her books.”

A beloved mother, mentor, executive business woman, humanitarian, philanthropist, publisher, and an independent certified speaker, Nicole Michelle’s authorship talents were initially put on display sometime Fall 2016.

As expected, the overall feedback since the release of her books has been favorable, for the most part — not to mention spiritually empowering.

“I have had First Ladies tell me that the prayer devotional literally saved their marriage, because they could spend their devotional time in prayer and privately deal with their issues and concerns by getting naked before God,” Nicole Michelle said. “Love covers a multitude of faults. God knows the evidence, but He conceals it from the enemy and your enemies. God also has a witness protection program that will change your identity once you have been purged and cleansed with His Word.”

“I want the readers to know that they can stay connected to the Father through prayer and that they are able to tap into God’s power and achieve the lifestyle of health, wealth, and abundance that God has desired for us as believers,” said Nicole Michelle explaining the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience through her books.”

Additional books are forthcoming, said Nicole Michelle, a native of Missouri City, Texas.

She has, in fact, announced the future releases of four devotional volumes that will be centered on “Faith, Family, Healing and, Deliverance,” she said.

As expected, the overall feedback since the release of her books has been favorable, for the most part — not to mentioning spiritually empowering.

“My tests have become my testimonies,” Nicole Michelle said. “God has given me a ministry of transparency and allowed me to share with others the knowledge that I have garnered over the years. Knowledge is power and it is important that we utilize the resources around us to tap into that power.

Additional books are forthcoming, said Nicole Michelle, a native of Missouri City, Texas.

“My gift has made room for me and allowed me to share the good news of the Gospel across this nation.”

Thanks in large part to:  Prayer. Purpose. Power.

Which, of course, are just a trio of spiritual superlatives that greatly sum up who Nicole Michelle is.

Houston real estate extraordinaire Jacqueline Briscoe helping home buyers achieve the ‘American Dream’

NEW IMAGE, BIG DREAMS 

DESTINY STEPS — For Jacqueline Briscoe, a native of Houston, she has been afforded the golden opportunity of helping homebuyers achieve and savor the America dream for the past decade and-a-half as the catalyst for New Image Realty.

DALLAS — When Jacqueline Briscoe advanced her education at the University of Houston, she deemed it essential to declare Communications as her major.

But amongst the notable factors she had ultimately come to discover was that God had other strategic ideas on her behalf.
For Briscoe, it was an awe-inspiring endeavor, one that eventually had come wrapped up in the unique gift through real estate.
“I have always been a people person and an advocate for the underdog,” Briscoe told Making Headline News this week. “So to help people who never thought they could buy a home walk into their season and get the American dream of home ownership, I am so grateful to be a part of that to make their dreams come true.”
A native of Houston, Briscoe has been afforded the golden opportunity of helping home buyers achieve and savor the “America dream” for the past decade and-a-half as the catalyst for New Image Realty.

Located at 16770 Imperial Valley Drive in the greater Houston metropolitan area, Briscoe has evolved as fixture in what undoubtedly is one of the country’s most competitive professions.

In a nutshell, part of her mission as a thriving real estate profession is routinely going to great lengths to ensure that her clients can appropriately encounter the proverbial unthinkable.


“(I love to) help people who didn’t know it was possible to buy a home,” said Briscoe, introducing her longstanding mission as only she could. “(I love) to show people (that even though) you can be single, you might have always rented before, or you are a newlywed couple or had credit struggles, I can normally help them become homeowners.”


To her credit, her immeasurable track record is such that she’s aided a number home buyers defy arguably the greatest of odds, particularly when pressing and navigating their way through the sometimes dreaded home-buying process.

“We have a program whereby when people are buying a new home, I give back a portion of my commission so when you buy a new home you won’t have a house note for at least two months,” said Briscoe, referring to her company’s ‘First Month On Us’ program.

Interestingly, Briscoe’s keen entrepreneurship reputation is such that she’s become thoroughly committed to showing her clients that she has a heart for people.

“I am with you from start to finish,” Briscoe said. “I have a background as a former loan officer and credit restoration adviser.”

In addition, Briscoe has spent a considerable amount of time, working as a new home consultant for home builders, she acknowledged.

“So I have a full knowledge of the entire realm of the real estate industry,” Briscoe said, adding that her strategic, featured motto is “Walk into your season.”

Three dimensional render of a cartoon human figure, standing over a SOLD sign, with a home in the background.

For what it’s worth, this rising giant in the real estate industry is surely walking in the divine season for which God has created her.

So much for studying Communications at the U of H.

“Let me help you achieve the American Dream through home ownership,” said Briscoe, adding that arguably her greatest inspirations are: Miko Branch, CEO of Miss Jessie’s, and Shannon Battle, Founder and Director of Family Services of America.


ALL AMERICAN REALTOR 

HOLDING IT DOWN — To her credit, Briscoe’s immeasurable track record is such that she’s aided homebuyers defy arguably the greatest of odds, particularly when pressing and navigating their way through the sometimes dreaded home-buying process.

Much to her delight, Briscoe will make a few public appearances in the foreseeable future, during which she will continue to educate the masses on home buying opportunities.

“Remember, a credit (score) as low as 580 and two months no of house payment,” Briscoe said.

Sounding very much like the authentic real estate professional for which she is widely known.

Is Houston entrepreneur Katina Cansler the organizational services industry’s best kept secret?


Let all things be done decently and in order. (1 Corinthians 14:40 KJV)


KC’s TOUCH OF EXCELLENCE

TOUCH OF SUCCESS — Katina Cansler the proud owner and CEO of  KC’s Touch, her Houston-area organizational services, which exhibit an extensive background and expertise necessary to properly maintain and organize your property or facility.

DALLAS — Katina Cansler has what she refers to as her “new adventure,” one she doesn’t plan on shelving any time soon.

Heck, why should she demonstrate signs of slowing down any time soon as the proud owner and CEO of  KC’s Touch, her Houston-area organizational services, which exhibit an extensive background and expertise necessary to properly maintain and organize your property or facility.
Widely known for its “world class organizational services,” KC’s Touch’s system was created to ensure that its clients pay witness to a clean and healthy home.
“Our process revolves around you and your family to provide a unique cleaning process with the highest attention to detail,” said a spokesperson for KC’s Touch in a detailed overview of this business at http://www.kcstouch.com/index.html.

Not only that, KC’s Touch has established a keen reputation for routinely bringing about a customer-first focus atmosphere, coupled with what Cansler describes as “old-fashioned values” derived from character and integrity, not to mention an “all in service” of providing its clients with the highest level of professionalism they deserve.

Aside from overseeing the day-to-day operations of KC’s Touch, Cansler is longtime cosmetologist, whose career spans more than 30 years.

Currently, the Fort Wayne, Indiana native has been afforded the luxury working savoring the best of both worlds through her endeavors. But as she forthrightly explained during an interview this week with Making Headline News, KC’s Touch essentially has emerged as her first love, of sorts.

YOU’VE GOTTA SEE THIS!!!

A business that accommodates mostly individuals ranging in their mid-30’s and up, Cansler’s wealth of experience in organizational services has been put on display in a variety of places around the country, most notably Indiana, Arizona, Texas, Atlanta, North Carolina, among others.

As Canslers recalls, her rise to starting her featured business goes all the back to her childhood days in Indiana.

“Growing up, it was always mandatory to keep the house clean,” said Cansler, who relocated from Arizona to Texas in 2015. “We had to do chores, no questions about that. So as I got older I became OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder) with my children and everything had to be in place.”

Everything from the towels — “they had to be folded a certain way,” Cansler explained — to the floor which, according to this nuts-and-bolts businesswoman, had to be vacuumed “with the lines in the carpet,” she says without hesitation.

Not only that, KC’s Touch has established a keen reputation for routinely bringing about a customer-first focus atmosphere, coupled with what Cansler describes as “old-fashioned values” derived from character and integrity, not to mention an “all in service” of providing its clients with the highest level of professionalism they deserve.

Interestingly and to her credit, Cansler never imagined that her immeasurable gifts for ensuring that things stay squeaky clean would ultimately blossom into a full fledge business.

“I always cleaned for friends and family and would have never considered it to be a business,” Cansler said. “Anyway, fast forwarding up to date…when I moved to Houston my daughter, Breanna, came out her bedroom and said, ‘Mom, my closet need KC’s Touch.’”

THAT’S NOT ALL SHE DOES — A entrepreneurial tenure that also include her functioning as an event and party planner, Cansler is presently enrolled at Houston Community College, where she’s pursuing an Associate of Arts Degree in Communications with an emphasis in Interior Designing.

And from that point on, Cansler explained, such a memory essentially marked the beginning of her organizational services, which have been in full operations for a little more than a decade.

How time flies when you’re having fun, doing what you love — a trend to which Cansler can greatly attest.

“It was at that moment a light come on in my head,” said Cansler, recalling her exchange with her daughter, which gave way to the very name of her business. “I loved the way it sounded and then I started with the business.”

Aside from overseeing the day-to-day operations of KC’s Touch, Cansler is longtime cosmetologist, whose career spans more than 30 years.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

“What I hadn’t realized is that I had (been engaging in) these services for years without ever giving it any thought…going to people’s homes and cleaning up bedrooms, bathrooms, and closets, just to name a few,” Cansler said. “There is a great need for my services, but some people are embarrassed to invite someone into their home and help them get organized, because it’s totally different from house-cleaning, which we offer those services as well.”

A entrepreneurial tenure that also include her functioning as an event and party planner, Cansler is presently enrolled at Houston Community College, where she’s pursuing an Associate of Arts Degree in Communications with an emphasis in Interior Designing.

For what it’s worth, she said her profession as the face of KC’s Touch gives her the golden opportunity to meet people from various walks of life, during which she customarily deems it essential to pass along some much-needed words of encouragement while doing what she’s loves the most.

A business that accommodates mostly individuals ranging in their mid-30’s and up, Cansler’s wealth of experience in organizational services has been put on display in a variety of places around the country, most notably Indiana, Arizona, Texas, Atlanta, North Carolina, among others.

“My desire is to help people get organized by implementing daily tasks,” said Cansler, who also announced the forthcoming release of her new book that’s scheduled to hit the market in late summer. “God has commissioned to be a beacon (of light) in the community…to give hope, to inspire, and encourage others.”

IN HER OWN WORDS — “I always cleaned for friends and family and would have never considered it to be a business,” Cansler said. “Anyway, fast forwarding up to date…when I moved to Houston my daughter, Breanna, came out her bedroom and said, ‘Mom, my closet need KC’s Touch.’”

Oh…and let’s not forget: to keep things clean.

Er…squeaky clean.

“I absolutely love helping people achieve and strive to their highest potential,” Cansler said. “Therefore, if someone needs some assistance with getting their homes in order, I would be happy to. A well-organized home promotes a healthy life and decreases depression and anxiety.”

She would undoubtedly know.

Her immeasurable track record speaks for itself.

Houston author Brandi Ashford writes a spiritually-empowering book for such a pivotal time as now


If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. (James 1:5 NIV)


FREEDOM OF EXCELLENCE 

STAYING IN FAITH — A native of Houston, Prophetess Brandi Ashford has appropriately accepted and embraced yet another God-mandated assignment, most notably as the mastermind behind the newly-released book entitled, “Keys to Freedom 30 Day Enlightenment and Morning Glory.”

DALLAS — A couple of hours before midday CST on Friday, Prophetess Brandi Ashford took to her Facebook page, where she staged to her timeline a rather absorbing, yet familiar post.

Said Ashford before her 2,600-plus social media followers: Never let someone’s negative opinion become your reality.
For Ashford, such a prevalent catchphrase, to her credit, has become a personal theme, of sorts, especially for a devout woman of faith, who has become widely known as “The Fireball.”
Because truth be told, Ashford’s keen reputation is such that she not only hasn’t merely allowed the negative perceptions of others distract or deter her from her God-orchestrated purpose. But most importantly, she goes to great lengths to ensure that she will continue to bask in the glory of walking in the divine purpose for which she was created.

Widely dubbed, “a power packed 30-day devotional written to shift your life,” Ashford’s “Keys to Freedom: 30 Day Enlightenment and Morning Glory” is extremely essential for such a pivotal time as now, for such a time that, according to various Biblical scholars, has been widely regarded as “these last and evil days” or “the last of the last and evil days.”

Consider, for instance, Ashford’s awe-inspiring vision through the ever-so-competitive world of authorship.

A native of Houston, Ashford has appropriately accepted and embraced yet another God-mandated assignment, most notably as the mastermind behind the newly-released book entitled, “Keys to Freedom: 30 Day Enlightenment and Morning Glory.”

Widely dubbed, “a power packed 30-day devotional written to shift your life,” Ashford’s “Keys to Freedom: 30 Day Enlightenment and Morning Glory” is extremely essential for such a pivotal time as now, for such a time that, according to various Biblical scholars, has been widely regarded as “these last and evil days” or “the last of the last and evil days.”

Or, to put it more forthrightly, a time whereby countless of believers essentially are steering from the household of faith.

A longtime resident of Houston, amongst the things about which Ashford is especially grateful is that God had strategically handpicked her to construct a spiritually-enhancing and spiritually-gut-checking project that figures to impact the kingdom mightily — much sooner than later.

As Ashford explained during an interview this week with Making Headline News, she has become destined to help advance the kingdom, thus do whatever in her God-given power to help provide those in the Body of Christ with some much-needed spiritual relief, courtesy of her month-long devotionals.

“The divine message I am sending to my (reading) audience is that you have the keys to unlock freedom within you,” said Ashford, offering a detailed and solid synopsis of her newly-assembled book.

“This book is part of my purpose that God has created for me, because I was so attached to bondage to where I lived, talked, and walked until I surrendered myself to God,” Ashford explained.

Much to her delight, once she had made up her mind to sellout completely unto God, something that ultimately gotten a hold of her (as an old songwriter once wrote).

“I became free,” said Ashford, recalling how her life-changing had all unfolded. “I used my keys to unlock my freedom and walk in purpose.’

And, the rest, as they say, was history.

THUS SAID THE LORD…

Look at her today, walking fervently in her divine purpose for such a pivotal time as now, for such a time that, according to various Biblical scholars, has been widely regarded as “these last and evil days” or “the last of the last and evil days.”

In case you’ve forgotten.

Now just days away from the release of “Keys to Freedom: 30 Day Enlightenment and Morning Glory,” Ashford’s gift is already making a room for her through this book, considering she will be on hand in Atlanta the first weekend in June for the much-anticipated unveiling of her written work.

“I chose to produce this book because one day, I was riding to work that morning,  I was having a long week that was very stressful and I said, ‘God I want to do a daily devotional that women can have when they get up in the morning and read day-by-day,” Ashford recalled. “And it came to mind: ‘Keys To Freedom Enlightenment And Morning Glory.’”

A positive, life-changing perception that has become her reality.

Yep. That’s just like God.

Gifted mother of 10, Louisiana entrepreneur Rosie Turnipseed defying insurmountable odds


He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:20 NIV)


MAKING MAJOR MOVES 

DESTINY STEPS — Much to her delight, it is due in large part to Rosie Turnipseed’s keen ability to fulfill her lofty goals and ambitions as a young businesswoman that this Villeplatte, Louisiana-area substitute teacher has been blessed to assume a variety of entrepreneurship roles.

DALLAS — Turnipseed is her last name.

Interestingly, though, Rosie Turnipseed’s entrepreneurship track record is such that she’s a businesswoman who boasts faith the size of a mustard seed.

“I have always envisioned a future for entrepreneurial success,” Turnipseed told Making Headline News this week. “I have always done whatever I could to support my large family of 10. At a young age, I discovered that my success was primarily on my own ability to make it happen.”

Much to her delight, it is due in large part to Turnipseed’s keen ability to fulfill her lofty goals and ambitions as a young businesswoman that this Villeplatte, Louisiana-area substitute teacher has been blessed to assume a variety of entrepreneurship roles.

A native of Houston, Turnipseed, 37, is an ABA Therapist, Certified Credit Repair Agent, Board Certified Christian Counselor, and a registered tax preparer.

That’s not all this resourceful, thriving businesswoman does.

That’s because Turnipseed is an accomplished life coach and motivational speaker, Certified Military Veteran Peer Specialist, as mental health and domestic violence advocate, not to mention a career coach, and youth leader.

WOMAN OF MANY HATS — A native of Houston, Turnipseed, 37, is an ABA Therapist, Certified Credit Repair Agent, Board Certified Christian Counselor, and a registered tax preparer.

As if that isn’t enough to create a solid business-related resume, Turnipseed is currently enrolled at Springfield College Of Professional And Continuing Studies, where she is scheduled to earn a Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Services in July.

“This is my field of choice, because it is very broad and it contributes to the opening of doors to my future endeavors,” said Turnipseed, whose business ventures caters mostly to residents in the Louisiana cities of Eunice, Opelousas, and Lafayette. “My passion and desire is to bring awareness to communities all over, especially in rural areas.”

To her credit, Turnipseed certainly exhibits the professional experience that has enabled her to function mightily in her element as an entrepreneur.

For starters, she once owned and operated Loyalty Personal Care Home, a personal care residence, where she was responsible for housing those who suffered from mental, emotional, and physical disabilities.

Interestingly, Turnipseed was named the “preferred vendor” for select hospitals in the Houston metropolitan area and, as she explained, “With my vision getting bigger, I began to house dementia, Alzheimer, and hospice patients.”

With her wealth of immeasurable experience comes even bigger and better goals, she said.

“My goal is to open an at-risk youth facility and another residential personal care home,” said Turnipseed, whose business expertise accommodates mostly persons ranging in ages nine to 24 (“With the adults there’s no specific age group,” she emphasized).

“While doing this, I desire to go all over the world, speaking to single mothers who have been through or is going through the struggle. I would like to show them that if I — with 10 kids, five girls and five boys — can do it, they can also.”

In addition, Turnipseed — who has announced the upcoming release of her first book entitled, “BUT GOD: When Pain Reveals Your Purpose” — said she would like to reach at-risk youths, particularly at their present downtrodden level.

WOMAN OF EXCELLENCE

Turnipseed is an accomplished life coach and motivational speaker, Certified Military Veteran Peer Specialist, as mental health and domestic violence advocate, not to mention a career coach, and youth leader.

“And not only help re-socialize them, but their household as a whole in my opinion,” she said. “It’s more realistic and effective.”

That’s not all this young, progressive businesswoman aspires to do in the foreseeable future.


“I want to help lower the recidivism rate in communities all over by connecting those who are coming home from being incarcerated to resources and affordable housing so they’re not place in their same environment and that they will be less likely to reoffend,” Turnipseed said. “I also want to show black males that there is a better way that just because they grew up in a single-parent home, they don’t have to be a part of the statistics…that they can make better and impactful choices that will contribute to them productive and successful citizens. I want to partner with agencies all over the world that will help me make this vision come to past.”


In order for her to make good on her monumental goals and ambitions, Turnipseed doesn’t shy away from the notion that she has no time to waste.

Interestingly, Turnipseed was named the “preferred vendor” for select hospitals in the Houston metropolitan area and, as she explained, “With my vision getting bigger, I began to house dementia, Alzheimer, and hospice patients.”

If nothing, she knows that exemplifying the faith the size of a mustard seed is a must.

“Basically I would like to empower, embrace, and equip single mothers and their children, who are hurt, lost, broken, hopeless, suffering from identity crisis,” Turnipseed said. “(I want to) help them identify generational issues with all that they may need by providing resources and possibly housing. I want to speak at engagements all over the world…at schools, churches, conventions, and conferences.

“I want families to learn how to thrive in healthy environments and to know how to identify toxic relationships,” Turnipseed continued. “I also would like to equip people all over with the things they need in order for them to learn, grow, and thrive in a healthy and non-toxic environment.”

Houston author Brittney Carr escapes suicide time and again, she explains in her new book


“I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 NIV)


DALLAS — As far as Brittney Carr is concerned, it literally goes without saying.

That is, she undoubtedly thanks God for her husband, Darius Carr, who unquestionably has been her grandest supporter ever since God has joined them together.

Consider, for instance, how in October 2018, during which God had strategically given Brittney Carr the awe-inspiring vision to make her authorship debut, courtesy of her book entitled, F.E.A.R., the acronym that stands for False Evidence Appearing Real.


SURROUNDED BY ANGELS

DESTINY STEPS — In October 2018, God had strategically given Houston author Brittney Carr the awe-inspiring vision to make her authorship debut, courtesy of her book entitled, F.E.A.R., the acronym that stands for False Evidence Appearing Real.

A 79-page project that Brittney Carr needed somewhere in the neighborhood of three months to assemble, F.E.A.R. is less than two months removed from having made its ceremonious release on the market.

During an interview this week with Making Headline News, Brittney Carr credited her beloved companion for having fueled her desire to compose a book that figures to help advance the kingdom — much sooner than later.


“God gave me the vision to write this book one day when my husband told me that I needed to tell people my story and that I would help many people with my testimony. So God told me to just start writing. So I started to write my story.” — Texas Author Brittney Carr 


And what a remarkably compelling and thought-provoking story it is.

PURCHASE BRITTNEY CARR’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/F-R-False-Evidence-Appearing/dp/1795824484/

An emotionally-drive, tear-jerking story that recalls how this brilliant author had had been spiritually and emotionally incarcerated to the point, during which she had attempted suicide an unprecedented four times during a span of six months, Carr’s F.E.A.R. is widely deemed an inspirational, yet true story, one that serves as an instant motivator for anyone who has gone through arguably the toughest of life’s trials and tribulations.

“Nothing is ever as bad as it seems, but it’s the paralyzing F.E.A.R. that difficult circumstances in life continually produce in our minds that cause us to go to pieces when faced with extreme adversities,” said a spokesperson for Carr’s book at Amazon.com. “The mental, emotional, and spiritual effects can be catastrophic or sometimes even fatal. This book was designed to help the millions of people worldwide that are currently going through something very difficult in life such as physical health issues, mental illness, financial problems, anxiety, addiction, heartbreak, failed relationships, parenting obstacles, death of a loved one, self-esteem troubles, spiritual warfare, mental and emotional trauma, and much more.”

HUBBY KNOWS BEST — During an interview this week with Making Headline News, Brittney Carr credited, Darius Carr, her beloved companion for having fueled her desire to compose a book that figures to help advance the kingdom — much sooner than later.

For Carr, a Houston-based author, she said that while the writing process of her book wasn’t merely a lengthy one — “Maybe a couple of days, but the editing took a little longer and the procrastination of not knowing if I wanted to let people know my business,” she acknowledged — she certainly didn’t want to be ashamed of the turbulent developments she disclosed.

Still, because she was thoroughly convinced that God had strategically placed her on assignment to compose her book, she knew full well she had to tell of her story to the masses.

THEY’RE DEPENDING ON HER — To no avail, God — as only He could — didn’t allow Carr to cross paths with a premature death, in large part because, well, the purpose for which He created her wasn’t fulfilled.

And so it came to pass, Carr’s assortment of emotional and life-alter testimonies, all of which had come wrapped up in a rather pivotal message, one that reminds us, among other things, that fear is false evidence appearing real, she often says without hesitation.

“Alot of people are paralyzed by fear and they are unable to live life,” Carr said. “I was one of those people. I wasn’t afraid to die, but I was afraid to live. I hated this world and everything in it. And I was ready to go home (to heaven).”

PURCHASE BRITTNEY CARR’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/F-R-False-Evidence-Appearing/dp/1795824484/

To no avail, God — as only He could — didn’t allow Carr to cross paths with a premature death, in large part because, well, the purpose for which He created her wasn’t merely fulfilled.

That, as a result, meant she had to tough it out, thus press and navigate her way through the slew of unfavorable circumstances that arose in her young life to challenge her faith.

“Through the goodness of God, I made it through,” Carr said. “And I want to let people know that they may be in the darkest place of their lives right now, but if they just continue to trust God and pray and cry out to Him that they can get out. God is a Present Help and He is always listening and guiding His children.”


HAVE NO FEAR 

TRUSTING THE PROCESS — For Carr, a Houston-based author, she said that while the writing process of her book wasn’t merely a lengthy one — “Maybe a couple of days, but the editing took a little longer and the procrastination of not knowing if I wanted to let people know my business,” she acknowledged — she certainly didn’t want to be ashamed of the turbulent developments she disclosed.

As expected, the feedback since the release of Carr’s book has been favorable.

“I have gained very positive feedback,” said Carr, adding that a two more books are on the horizon. “People have been writing me, telling me how my testimonies have inspired them in many ways.”

Much to her delight, Carr has her husband to thank for helping steer her to her divine purpose.

“My life is a testimony that I was ashamed of, but not anymore,” Carr said. “I realized I’m not the only one with life issues, and if we just tell our testimonies and not be afraid, we can all help one another get through life until we go home.”

As far as this amazing author is concerned, that literally goes without saying.

Houston businesswoman Tina McBride Reed goes from fast food worker to CEO of credible mobile care and companion service


DISPLAYING AGAPE LOVE

GOD’S UNCHANGING HAND — A native of Spring, Texas, Tina McBride Reed, 40, is the owner and chief executive officer of Tina Reed’s Caring Hands LLC, a Houston-area mobile care and companion service whose primary emphasis is centered mostly on helping and caring for others, most notably senior citizens, whom are often neglected, Reed told Making Headline News this week.

DALLAS — Tina McBride Reed’s reputation is such that she routinely exemplifies having a heart for people, especially for elderly individuals.

So, much in fact, that Reed has gone to great lengths to provide a resourceful, credible service to elderly people throughout the greater Houston metropolitan and surrounding areas.

A native of Spring, Texas, Reed, 40, is the owner and chief executive officer of Tina Reed’s Caring Hands LLC, a Houston-area mobile care and companion service whose primary emphasis is centered mostly on helping and caring for others, most notably senior citizens, whom are often neglected, Reed told Making Headline News this week.


CONNECT WITH TINA’S BUSINESS VENTURE: http://msreed2015.com/

“We are a private mobile care and companion service that offers to anyone who is in need, but caters especially to the senior citizens,” Reed said. “I feel they are often neglected in some ways and often forgotten at times.”

Having assembled a staff that is comprised of her mother, two sisters, a niece, as well as a host of friends, family members, and caregivers, Reed established her mobile care venture a little more than a year ago — January 19, 2018 to be technical — as a strategic way to bridge the gap between that about which she’s passionate and the love for what she’s become destined to do.

ALL OF GOD’S PEOPLE MATTER — Reed’s reputation is such that she routinely exemplifies having a heart for people, especially for elderly individuals.

Currently a resident of Humble, Texas, Reed is the Activities Director and caregiver for a senior living community in nearby Woodlands.

“I’ve worked in the healthcare field and I’ve seen some things that I wish I could unsee,” Reed said. “I’ve seen the type of care that has been provided, and it wasn’t pleasing to me, so I wanted to make a difference.”

A little more than a year removed since the startup of Tina Reed’s Caring Hands LLC, this thriving, progressive businesswoman has been nothing short of impressive.

Credit her keen passion, coupled with her divine calling, as the reasons why.


“I wanted to be different and create my own team and expectations of how my vision of how care should be provided. I stand firm on our motto which is, ‘Treating your loved ones as our own.’ This simply means, however, you would treat (people like) your own mother, father, or loved one whether someone is there, overseeing you or not. You would want someone to provide that same type of love care, patience, and companionship for your loved ones, so I wanted to venture out on my own with my family to share our love and passion for what we do.” — Texas Entrepreneur Tina McBride Reed


To her credit, it seems that Reed and her team are reaping favorable results of their tireless efforts and valiant contributions through a distinctly unique mobile care venture that has become a fixture in the community.

“Thus far, we have touched a lot of lives, a lot of hearts, and a lot of families and their loved ones,” Reed said of the sustained success of her business. “My staff and I are both professional and caring, when it comes to your loved ones. We take great pride in providing the best, quality care, love, and support that are required in the adult healthcare field.”

Armed with a nearly a decade and a half of experience in the adult healthcare sector, Reed said what she loves the most about her line of work is the lasting relationships she customarily forms amongst those with whom she crosses paths.

PUTTING IN THE WORK — Currently a resident of Humble, Texas, Reed is the Activities Director and caregiver for a senior living community in nearby Woodlands.

“The thing I like the most about my business is meeting new people, creating special bonds, bonds that are like friendships, and some are like family,” said Reed, whose venture mostly accommodates senior citizens of any age, as well as special education or adult children. “I love to hear the stories that they share. I love transitioning with them and, most of all, I like providing them with quality care, companionship, passion and love for them, something I feel that every person should feel or provide for whomever. I get great joy in helping others.”

Her “great joy,” she said, was spearheaded by her Creator.

“I would definitely have to say that it was put on my heart by God,” said Reed, when asked Who were amongst those who inspired her to enter entrepreneurship. “I started off in fast food, working at Jack In The Box for five years before I said to myself, ‘This is not what I want to do for the rest of my life.’”

Interestingly, that Reed — behind the valiant support of Shannon Reed, her husband of three years — was determined to see from beyond her tenure at a local fast food chain and persevere diligently toward her purpose and calling has benefited her mightily, given the immeasurable strides she’s made a newcomer to the world of entrepreneurship.

“I was introduced to the healthcare field by my sister, who is also a caregiver for my company,” Reed explained. “She introduced me to providing care for the seniors.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Never mind that Reed had made her debut in the industry virtually clueless about what to do.


A SERVANT’S HEART 

IMPACTING LIVES — Armed with a nearly a decade and a half of experience in the adult healthcare sector, Reed said what she loves the most about her line of work is the last relationships she customarily forms amongst those with whom she crosses paths.

“I honestly had no experience in the healthcare field prior to this besides taking care of my own parents,” said Reed, “but when I saw the responses from the care that I provided, that was a sign from God to me that this is what I needed to do.”

Once she made God the Focal Point of her what undoubtedly has become her newfound passion, she in turn began to reap her share of success.

Sustained success, that is.

“Honestly, I see a lot of people that want to do certain things but are afraid to step out on faith and do it,” Reed said. “There are a lot of people that just don’t want to take that extra initiative to do something that they love. I was in the same boat, but I stepped out on faith and said, ‘I’m going to do this.’”

For Reed, it was, by all accounts, a massive leap of faith, the kind that has ultimately connected her with the purpose for which she was created.

GOD’S PLAN — Interestingly, that Reed was determined to see from beyond her tenure at a local fast food chain and persevere diligently toward her purpose and calling has benefited her mightily, given the immeasurable strides she’s made a newcomer to the world of entrepreneurship.

“(I said) ‘If I make it great, wonderful. I’ve succeeded and I will have a success story. But if I fail, I still feel like I tried, I attempted, and I stepped out on faith and did not give up on at least trying so either way I still win,’” Reed recalled. “So I just want to show others that anything that you set your mind to that you can do if you put in the work for it.

“Nothing is ever given to you. You have to work for it. I love encouraging and inspiring and uplifting anyone in life who is trying to make it. That is me.”

Indeed it is.

What a difference one year has made.

Texas Gospel Music Excellence Awards to take place February 14-17 from Houston

 


And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 5:23 KJV)


DALLAS — Gospel artists around the country will be afforded the golden opportunity to acquire the exposure they so desperately seek during the upcoming Texas Gospel Music Excellence Awards.

A three-day event that will take place February 14-17 at Houston’s  Marriott Hotel Hobby Airport — located at 9100 Gulf Freeway — the TGMEA will is annual event that is centered largely on providing a platform for new gospel artists, most notably those who aspire to move up the ranks of the music industry, a spokesperson told Making Headline News this week.


IT’S ALL ABOUT KING JESUS 

DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS — Gospel artists around the country will be afforded the golden opportunity to acquire the exposure they so desperately seek during the upcoming Texas Gospel Music Excellence Awards.

In addition to an event that has been in existence for a little more than two decades, artists and aspiring artists will have the chance to grasp a thorough overview of what  TGMEA organizers have labeled the “vehicle of education and networking opportunities.”

“These efforts have assisted in the springboard of many of gospel artists in the past, providing a face-to-face experience with other artists, promoters, producers, and media (personalities),” said a spokesperson for the TGMEA.


MORE ON THE TGMEA: https://www.facebook.com/events/2177642512456944/

Powered by the Excellence Awards nonprofit organization, the theme that organizers have adopted during the 2019 TGMEA is: Focusing On The Total Person: Mind, Body, And Soul,” a featured slogan that is accompanied by the familiar Biblical passage that is 1 Thessalonians 5:23.

As usual, the TGMEA is being organized by a host of individuals, most notably its Co-Founders, Pastor Larry Davies and his wife, First Lady Sharon Davies.

The TGMEA is available to gospel artists nationwide, event organizers emphasized.

“Attending this event will afford the new artists some exposure and knowledge of how the industry operates, what it takes to become successful, and to learn the language of the industry,” said a spokesperson for the TGMEA. “Due to the fact that in this new age of gospel music, the changes in the industry are ever so changing. But if any new artists are determined that this is the way they want to go, attending this event will be a help.

“Including awarding these artists for their creativity and hard work in gospel ministry as an independent artist, we have a chance to exhibit our appreciation via the gospel community.”

Interestingly, organizers said artists in attendance will have an opportunity to have their music projects serviced by what is known as its “servicing area,” during which they will pass their respective projects to various radio stations and media personnel on hand for the TGMEA.


“Of course, if the up-and-coming artists perform on any of the events scheduled during the event, (they will be afforded the opportunity) to be heard and identified amongst their constituents and other media affiliates,” said a spokesperson for the TGMEA.


And, just like in years’ past, the TGMEA will include its customary Morning Glory worship to commence each day of the three-day event, as well as a Gospel Music Industry Educational Workshop, Praise and Worship Workshop, Praise Dance Workshop, and a Women of Excellence Forum and Book Release (brunch tickets are $35.00).


GOD’S LEADING LADY 

Also, there will be a Preachers and Ministers Forum, and Ambassadors Annual Meeting, a Valentine’s Day Late Night Soiree (which is $35.00 per couple), a Late Night New Artist Showcase, and the TGMEA finale that is known as CHOIRMANIA.

“We encourage everyone to come witness the various ministries and anointed talents of our delegates,” said a spokesperson for the TGMEA.
