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.

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.”

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.

MORE TO COME — Next up for this Christian-based author: the upcoming release of Book No. 2, this one entitled, “Divorcing My Past To walk In Destiny” at a date that has yet to be announced.

Next up for this Christian-based author: the upcoming release of Book No. 2, this one entitled, “Divorcing My Past To walk In Destiny” at a date that has yet to be announced.As for her latest book, well, Ashford, doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s excited to have taken yet another major step in her ministry.

“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).”

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.

Allen Dave Funeral Homes & Crematorium amongst Texas’ finest amid Jackson Family Massacre in 2015

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES MR. AND MRS. ALLEN L. DAVE


EDITOR’S NOTE: This the first of a two-part Making Headline News series about Houston-area entrepreneur Allen L. Dave, Jr. 


DALLAS — Allen L. Dave, Jr. fielded the question as if he expected it.

“(That was a) proud moment in our company history to be positioned to help,” Dave, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, explaining in great detail the devastating and disheartening events amid the Jackson Family Massacre that transpired in Houston in August 2015.

On August 8 of that year, then-48-year-old David Ray Conley allegedly broke into his former home and held hostage Valerie and Dewayne Jackson, along with six children, including his own 13-year-old son.

HEARTS OF GOLD — For Dave, 56, that he and his family deemed it essential to offer valiant support for the Jackson family during a horrific and terrifying tragedy that attracted an international media presence and was aired on more than 35 news stations nationwide has been dubbed arguably one of the favorable highlights for a progressive, thriving entrepreneur, whose presence in the death care industry spans more than 15 years. Pictured with Dave is his wife, Micca. 

Over the course of nine hours, Conley reportedly shot and killed the entire family. He then engaged in a shootout with responding police before surrendering.

A week and a half or so later, eight white caskets were erected in front of the altar inside the 2,500-seat sanctuary at Houston’s Fallbrook Church, a commendable yet emotionally-driven deed that was spearheaded by Dave and his wife, Micca, who stepped up and donated $35,000 to provide professional funeral and burial services to the Jackson family.

“We developed a new company policy to never turn a family away and give them every option available,” Allen Dave told MHN. “Every Family, Every Option, Every Time.”

DOING THINGS IN EXCELLENCE — The President and owner of Allen Dave Funeral Directors And Cremation Tribute Centers, Dave is widely regarded as a National Board Certified Funeral Director and Cremation Specialist.

WAVES OF LOVE AND KINDNESS — “We developed a new company policy to never turn a family away and give them every option available,” Allen Dave told MHN. “Every Family, Every Option, Every Time.”

Interestingly, Dave in 2010 established Death Care Management & Financial Group, LLC, which subsequently had given way to his being allowed to manage funeral homes in Texas.

Having retired from the Houston Chronicle Publishing Company after a 28-year stint in the circulation and distribution department, Dave is Southeast Texas’ only black owner and operator of crematorium services. 

Owner of four funeral homes, one cemetery, and a crematorium, Dave currently manages six other funeral homes and a second crematorium in Texas and Louisiana. Interestingly, Allen Dave Funeral Homes and Cremation’s mission includes, among other things, providing what company officials describes as “paramount services to the families we serve with dignity, honor, and trust.”

THE PROVERBS 2:3 FACTOR — While the Jackson Massacre undoubtedly was a painful encounter for those affected by the tragedies, Dave doesn’t shy away from the notion that his company went to great lengths to meet a massive and dire need — with God, its Helper, leading the way.

“As a leader in the death industry, we enhance the experience of laying a loved one to rest through a personalized and caring process of education and full disclosure,” said a spokesperson for Allen Dave Funeral Homes and Cremation in a detailed synopsis of the company at http://www.allendave.com. “We are keenly aware of the financial impact death has on a family and will maintain systems and services that minimize cost while maximizing the experience.

“We are committed to the communities we serve through charitable endeavors and educational programs. We will maintain a reputation of quality and trust that will allow us to be the company of choice for insurance, burial, and cremation services. We shall continue rolling out our benchmark red carpet and white gloves services which are second to none.”

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — Formed in September 1935, several prominent community leaders organized the Houston Negro Chamber of Commerce (or HNCC at the time) to empower and promote African-American businesses in the city. By and large, they focused on encouraging business within the African-American community. However, in 1964, under the leadership of Mack H. Hannah, Jr., the chamber changed its name to the Houston Citizens Chamber Of Commerce (or HCCC). Interestingly, even as the Chamber membership expanded mightily, it wasn’t until 2013 that the chamber rebranded its look, thus naming its institution the Greater Houston Black Chamber of Commerce (or GHBC).

As for the newly-established GHBC app, Noris and his team are confident that it will benefit this organization for years to come. “This will be a better way to connect to members,” Noris explained. “They will be able to send push notifications instead of sending emails to notify users of important announcements and upcoming events.”
CHECK THIS OUT —“The app will also make black businesses, job openings, and business opportunities more accessible and easier to locate,” Noris said. “The app can also be used to showcase major events like the Pinnacle Awards. There is a section added in to highlight pictures and business links for all of the finalists for these prestigious awards being given out at the ceremony.”

That he has managed once again to prove to be nothing short of impressive through his venture has benefited him mightily. Talk about doing things big in Texas.

“I have been a proud member of the Greater Houston Black Chamber of Commerce since January 2018, but have been attending their events since I started Fresh Tech Solutionz 2 years ago. The events that the GHBC have are phenomenal and really showcase the excellence and necessity of black business in Houston, and I’m blessed to be a part of that.” — Houston businessman Derrell Noris

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES JOAQUINA WINSLOW


Joaquina Winslow isn’t just widely known as a notable ambassador throughout the Houston metropolitan area.

Interestingly, she’s a sports enthusiast in her own right.

So much, in fact, that Winslow’s Pure Urban Excellence LLC is will hold its inaugural Mayors And Players Gala.

BRIDGING MASSIVE GAPS — Longtime businesswoman Joaquina Winslow’s Pure Urban Excellence LLC is will hold its inaugural Mayors And Players Gala.

The event will take place on October 12 from 5 to 10 p.m. CST at Sugar Land Marriott Town Square, located at 16090 City Walk in Sugar Land, Texas.

A star-studded event that is expected to attract a host of politicians, as well as current and former professional athletes and sports media types, the Mayors And Players Gala will be centered largely on bridging the gap between athletes and politicians, particularly during an era in which social injustice is seemingly dominating headlines.

“This is a great chance for politicians to meet and interacts with the athletes,” Winslow, a native of Baton Rouge, told Making Headline News during a recent interview.

Most importantly, bridging what undoubtedly is a massive gap between these professionals will be the primary focus during this event, Winslow emphasized.

“It’s going to show that players and politicians can be in the same room,” said Winslow, an accomplished businesswoman who is the chief executive officer of the Baton Rouge-based Black Wall Street, a Christian-based movement that was founded in 2014.

Also, during Winslow’s inaugural gala, attendees will have the chance to witness former baseball legends, Grover “Deacon” Jones and J. R. Richard, share the platform, as well as be honored for their valiant contributions to professional sports and society.

PAVING THE WAY — A former Ithaca College star, Grover “Deacon” Jones threw right-handed, but batted left-handed and enjoyed an 11-year minor-league stint that began in 1955 through 1969, during which he batted .319 with 154 home runs and a slugging percentage of .528.

A retired player, coach, manager, and scout, Jones, 84, appeared in 40 Major League games as a first baseman and pinch hitter for the Chicago White Sox, first from 1962–63 and then in 1966.

A former Ithaca College star, Jones threw right-handed, but batted left-handed and enjoyed an 11-year minor-league stint that began in 1955 through 1969, during which he batted .319 with 154 home runs and a slugging percentage of .528.

Interestingly, Jones still holds the Midwest League record for the highest single-season batting average when he hit .409 for the Dubuque Packers in 1956. He also compiled 135 hits to accompany 26 homers and manufactured a .758 slugging percentage in only 330 at-bats.

LEAST WE FORGET — Selected with the second overall pick in the 1969 Amateur Draft by the Astros directly out of high school, J. R. Richard had ultimately made his Major League debut two seasons later, a stint that lasted through the end of the 1975 season.

As for Richard, 68, he also enjoyed a successful professional career as a starting pitcher in the big leagues from 1971 through 1980 as a member of the Houston Astros.

Selected with the second overall pick in the 1969 Amateur Draft by the Astros directly out of high school, Richard had ultimately made his Major League debut two seasons later, a stint that lasted through the end of the 1975 season.

While assuming a limited role with the Astros, Richard tossed no more than 72 innings in a season but, in 1975, he enjoyed his first full season in the majors as a starting pitcher.

SHE’S GOT CONNECTIONS —  Also, during Winslow’s inaugural gala, attendees will have the chance to witness former baseball legends, Grover “Deacon” Jones and J. R. Richard, share the platform, as well as be honored for their valiant contributions to professional sports and society.

As for her forthcoming gala, while Winslow is especially grateful to attract a gallery of big name political figures and former athletes, she emphasized that other pertinent issues and information will be addressed.

“A lot of stem cell therapy will be talked about,” said Winslow, referring to her Pure Urban Excellence movement. “So that’s an aspect I want to highlight as well.”

Prior to the start of the Mayors And Players Gala, a red carpet event will take place at 5 p.m.
