For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. (2 Corinthians 4:17 KJV) 


THE POTTER’S TOUCH 

GOD’S THE POTTER, SHE’S THE CLAY — A Mount Vernon, Missouri-based author who is a licensed minister, as well as the Founder of Roxanne Potter Ministries, Incorporated, Roxanne Potter’s has written two books to date, both of which are indicative of the immeasurable strides she’s made since she has sold out completely to God.

DALLAS — In a rather appropriate way of playing off words, Roxanne Potter was determined to do it afraid for such a time as this.

A time during which God was strategically using her for His glory.

“Four years ago, God laid it on my heart to share parts of my testimony,” Potter, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, said of her vision to compose her first book entitled, “For Such A Time As This.”

“And two years ago, God laid it on my heart to write my first journey through cancer,” said Potter, alluding to her second written work entitled, “Do It Afraid.”

A Mount Vernon, Missouri-based author who is a licensed minister, as well as the Founder of Roxanne Potter Ministries, Incorporated, Potter’s books are indicative of the immeasurable strides she’s made since she has sold out completely to God.

A book that is comprised 74 pages, Potter’s “For Such A Time As This” was officially released on January 26, 2016 and is centered largely on Roxanne’s journey to finding what she’s deemed her “God moment,” according to a detailed introduction of this book at https://www.amazon.com/Such-Time-as-This/dp/1512727148.

Released on June 8, 2017, Potter’s “Do It Afraid” is an 80-page written document that recalls this Christian-based writer’s assortment of life-altering experiences with breast cancer, particularly how she was determined not to allow it to have her.

“She conquered it with God’s help,” said a spokesperson for Potter’s “Do It Afraid” in a thorough breakdown at https://www.amazon.com/Do-Afraid-Roxanne-Potter/dp/1633082717. “She did everything that she knew would irritate the devil and pleases the Lord. She became a warrior. Her prayer is that as you read this book, you will find tips and tools to help you overcome fear and be equipped in whatever battle that you may be facing.”

As for the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience through her books, Potter wasted little time being rather forthright and direct.

Or, in a rather appropriate way of playing off words, this devout woman of faith was determined to do it afraid for such a time as this.

“Don’t give up,” Potter said with such authority. “Don’t give up on God. No matter what you have been through and what you are going though, it does not define you and you do not have to remain a victim, but you can be victorious through Jesus Christ.”

Much to her delight and to her credit, the feedback since the ceremoniously release of her books have been favorable.

“Lots of faith, hope, and inspiration birthed out of these books and always in demand,” Potter said. “And with the transparency of both books, people have absolutely loved it and said it made them feel they can achieve too.”

IT’S A GOOD — Much to her delight and to her credit, the feedback since the ceremoniously release of her books have been favorable.

For Potter, amongst the things about which she’s convinced is that her spiritually-empowering books undoubtedly are signs of things to come.

“(I want) To help many women and young ladies along with men realize that all things are possible with God,” she said. “I was called to inspire people to go after God. Through these books, I hold major women’s conferences, speak, and sing, which, are all the calling of God on my life.”

Especially for such a time as this.

Carolina entrepreneur Alisha B. Allen deemed a ‘woman of many hats’ as CEO of ABA Enterprises


She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens; She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard;  She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms; She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night; She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff; She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. (Proverbs 31: 15-20 KJV) 


For the record, Alisha B. Allen could be what one would appropriately describe as a serial entrepreneur.

Or perhaps a businesswoman of many hats.

Or perhaps…
On second thought, perhaps she could tell it best.
“Multi-business owner,” Allen told Making Headline News this week.

THE LORD’S DOING

DESTINY STEPS — Armed with a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Purdue University, North Carolina entrepreneur Alisha Allen oversee an assortment of business ventures, as Founder and CEO of ABA Enterprises.

Indeed she is. And, to her distinctly unique credit, she’s doing a masterful job of juggling multiple endeavors, all the while walking in her divine purpose in the process.

Armed with a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Purdue University, Allen oversees an assortment of business ventures as Founder and CEO of ABA Enterprises.

Based in her native establishment of Monroe, North Carolina, Allen is a fixture for a credit resolution company that centers largely on consumer credit education by offering financial workshops, as well as communication on how to increase credit scores, budgeting, and other financial literacy education.

IN HIGH PLACES — To her credit, it seems that Allen’s wealth of entrepreneurship experience has been recognized and applauded in various places around the country, most notably Albuquerque, New Mexico, St. Louis, Florence, South Carolina, Dallas, Charlotte, as well as the North Carolina cities of Monroe, Wadesboro, and Albemarle..

In addition, she is the mastermind of Alisha Allen Realty, whereby she serves as a licensed real estate broker. Her chief responsibilities include — but aren’t limited to — helping individuals sell, buy, or invest in real estate.

And there is “Wake Up & Win,” which Allen’s thriving, progressive ministry that is centered mostly on encompasses financial literacy, home ownership, and business concepts with inspiration by way of speaking engagements, webinars, and church or civic organization events.

In essence, Allen assumes the role as an inspirational speaker through this endeavor.

WHO IS ALISHA ALLEN?

A graduate of Monroe (North Carolina) High School, who’s currently enrolled in Apex School of Theology, where she’s pursuing Master of Divinity, Allen acknowledged that it is due in large part to her life’s competitive drive that has greatly empowered her to gain the essential insight needed to make her dreams a reality.

“I learned to make the woman I was yesterday my biggest competition and I always put a 150 percent effort toward defeating and beating her each and every day,” Allen said. “(What I love most about my businesses is) the freedom to allow God to be CEO and understanding He only entrust the manifestation of what people see into my care. God trust me to run His business ethically, with integrity, and with a spirit of excellence.”

All of which explains why she could be what one would appropriately describe as a serial entrepreneur.

Or perhaps…

On second thought, perhaps she could tell it best.

Allen is an accomplished author, having assembled one book (True Credit Restoration Journal) and two journals (30 Day Money Journal and ABA Enterprises Notary Journal) with a second book release scheduled for May 2019.

 

“(My mission is) to do my part in building stronger individuals, families, and communities so that my work, purpose, and assignment here on earth are consistently being completed,” Allen said.

As for those who have contributed mightily to her sustained success, Allen said, “(I salute) those whom I consider my inner circle and those on the other end of the spectrum those that worked endlessly to block, stop or impede on my success.”

A business-related repertoire that spans more than two decades, Allen will be afforded the golden opportunity to promote her brands during public appearances in in nearby Charlotte April 13 and May 4.

Interestingly, she’s a licensed minister, a certified credit consultant, a certified notary public instructor, and is an ambassador in Monroe and the surrounding areas as a community activist, whereby she facilitates fundraising.

“I believe wholeheartedly in releasing positive energy, and whatever you release is also what I will receive,” said Allen, explaining why it’s important to esteem others highly than herself daily. “I also believe in the power to (overcome) evil with good, so I strive to do good to all men, for you never know which man plots evil against you.”

Well said by a woman, who could be what one would appropriately describe as a serial entrepreneur.

Or perhaps a businesswoman of many hats.

Or perhaps…

On second thought, she’s already said it best.

“I have seen women leave abusive relationships, close and start businesses, and become mentors to others, because of my coaching or attending a retreat I have hosted.”

That’s because she’s widely known as a thriving, progressive, resourceful businesswoman, who didn’t just discover and wrote down her life-enhancing vision some seven years ago.

Rather, she’s a flourishing entrepreneur, who has gone to great lengths to run with it.

The WORD Network to air Prophetess Maria Vaughn’s 4th Annual Eagle Excellence Awards in September 2019


MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES PROPHETESS MARIA VAUGHN AND THE WORD NETWORK 


Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine. (1 Timothy 5:17)


Dr. Maria Vaughn wasn’t just born and raised in the church.

Because of who she is and because of where God is taking her, her reputation is such that she routinely goes to great lengths to advance the kingdom.

In remarkably impressive fashion for the most part.

“My mother is an evangelist and my father is a deacon,” Dr. Vaughn told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “I have great support from my family, which I draw strength from.”

THE PROVERBS 31 FACTOR — Widely known throughout the Body of Christ as Prophetess Maria Vaughn, this Crisfield, Maryland native is not only the proud Founder and CEO of Exodus Deliverance Outreach Ministries, Inc., her Lakewood, New Jersey-based non-profit organization — which has sponsored an assortment of community-related events and awarded scholarships to prospective college students — but she has gained widespread respect amongst her peers for having organized the Eagle Excellence Awards Ceremony.

Such unyielding family support, coupled with the massive divine calling on her life, have benefited Dr. Vaughn mightily, considering her ministry is steadily attracting more of global presence.

MORE ON THE EAGLE EXCELLENCE AWARDS: https://www.eagleawards.org

NATIONAL IMPACT — Next year’s Eagle Excellence Awards Ceremony, which will be nationally televised by The WORD Network, will be hosted by Bishop Greg Davis and will take place on September 7, 2019 at 5 p.m. EST from Lakewood, New Jersey.

An event that is entering its fourth year of existence, the Eagle Excellence Awards is widely regarded as a mandate, of sorts, whereby organizers deem it essential to honor, celebrate, and encourage Pastors, reminding them, among other things, that their immeasurable kingdom-based work is not being executed in vain.

“Although their ultimate reward will come from God, we deem it necessary to give thanks to them for the years of selfless service that they give to the Kingdom of God,” said a spokesperson for the Eagle Excellence Awards in a synopsis at https://www.eagleawards.org/.


MORE ON THE WORD NETWORK: http://www.thewordnetwork.org/

Roughly a month removed from the latest awards ceremony, Dr. Vaughn’s Fourth Annual Eagle Excellence Awards Show figures to be just as adventurous, thus attracting more of a universal presence.

That’s because next year’s event, which will be nationally televised by The WORD Network, will be hosted by Bishop Greg Davis, and will take place on September 7, 2019 at 5 p.m. EST from Lakewood, New Jersey.

Available in over 200 countries while reaching millions of viewers in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and appearing in nearly 93 million homes in the United States, The WORD Network is widely regarded as largest African-American religious network in the world. 

A venue for the next year’s Eagle Excellence Awards has yet to be determined.

WORTHY OF DOUBLE HONOR — Interestingly, Eagle Excellence Awards organizers have had the luxury of paying homage to more than 150 Pastors from around the country, in part because a number of them haven’t gotten the respect and exposure they rightfully deserve, Dr. Vaughn emphasized.

If the previous three years are any indication, it’s safe to assume that next year’s event figures to attract a slew of prominent personalities throughout the Body of Christ.

“We have been able to host many ministry leaders in the communities to bless the Body of Christ,” Dr. Vaughn said.

Amongst those leaders are Bishop Hezekiah Walker, Pastor Tye Tribbett, Evangelist Vicki Winans, Evangelist Karen Clark Sheard, Evangelist Dorinda Clark Cole, Bishop Jason Nelson, Charles Butler & Trinity, the Mann’s Tour, the Bloody Win Tour, Bishop Marvin Sapp, Le’Andria Johnson, and Tasha Page Lockhart, just to name a few.

“Many leaders have been overlooked for their sacrifices and endeavors. During our Eagle Excellence Awards ceremony, we have let the leaders know that their work is not being done in vain. Our desire is to be a blessing by giving back to our youth and communities.” — Prophetess Maria Vaughn 


MUCH SPIRITUAL HOOPLA — If the previous three years are any indication, it’s safe to assume that the 2019 Eagle Excellence Awards figure to attract a slew of prominent personalities throughout the Body of Christ.

Also, next year’s Eagle Excellence Awards will be comprised of what Dr. Vaughn said are “specific changes,” most notably a newly-established production team, a variety of commercials and promos months leading to the event, as well as new marketing strategies that will enable organizers to enhance the event’s vision.

In addition, Dr. Vaughn and her staff are devising more effective and strategic ways to implement networking and continuing long-term relationships, all the while adding more volunteers and community involvement, particularly as it relates to creating more activities to brand the forthcoming Eagle Excellence Awards, she said.

Columbia, Maryland-based businesswoman Christy Johnson’s inspiring non-profit organization aiming to have a global impact

VOICE HEARD AROUND THE WORLD — A native of Mississippi, Maryland-based businesswoman Christy Johnson is the President and Founder of Finding Your Destiny, Inc. a Columbia, Maryland-based non-profit domestic violence and suicide prevention organization she organized months after her daughter’s death.

For countless Americans, September 11 is a date by which they will recall and reflect upon for years to come.

For Christy Johnson, however, September 10 is a date that undoubtedly will cause her to unleash tears for the rest of her life.

To be technical, it all transpired on September 10, 2013.

That was the date that sent shock waves throughout Johnson’s family when she learned that her daughter, then-19-year-old Destiny, was murdered and left hanging in a closet as a result of domestic violence.

Even after having buried two children — first Destiny then Mark — Johnson, during an exclusive interview this week with Making Headline News, spoke at length about how she steadfastly had to rely of unyielding faith in God to press and navigate her way through arguably the most downtrodden times of her life.

“My inspiration comes from God first and then my daughter, Destiny, and my son, Mark, in heaven,” Johnson said. “God shows me every day that He will provide my every need. God told me He chose me to do this work. Therefore, I cannot stop advocating for those who are being abused and murdered every day.”

To her distinctly unique credit, Johnson — with God, her Helper, leading the way — has gone above and beyond to be a voice and a beacon of light for those who have endured and, perhaps witnessed their lives cut short amid domestic violence.

A native of Mississippi, Johnson is the President and Founder of Finding Your Destiny, Inc., a Columbia, Maryland-based non-profit domestic violence and suicide prevention organization she established months after her daughter’s tragic death.

“Immediately, I began my organization because I knew the pain I felt I did not want another mother or father to feel,” Johnson said.

In addition, Johnson is widely known as an activist for individuals who have experienced or are presently being mistreated and suffering various forms of abuse.

WHAT ABOUT FINDING YOUR DESTINY? http://www.findingyourdestiny.org

Moreover, amongst her notable goals is to serve people of various races and both sexes. Also, Johnson’s key objectives, particularly through what she describes as “societal transparency,” is to empower, transform, and rebuild the lives of women and teen girls through Finding Your Destiny, Inc., especially by way of Biblical principles or a spiritual avenue, of sorts, for teaching about domestic violence, suicide, and other forms of abuse.

“My personal mission for the work I do is to educate, regenerate, create, transform, and heal broken hearts, minds, and souls of those affected by domestic violence and other forms of abuse,” Johnson explained.

Interesting enough, Johnson’s immense contributions through her non-profit organization have allowed her to diligently put her advocacy gifts on display outside of the United States, most notably in the United Kingdom.

“My mission for the trip to London, England was to bring resources and to educate those living in silence about my programs and book I wrote on the violence residence in London face every day,” Johnson said.

All things considered, Johnson consequently authored two books in the wake of arguably the darkest hours of her life: “From Rattled To Recovery: The Faces Of Domestic Violence Domestic Violence,” and “That Which Is Beyond Death.”

“The books are very valuable because they provide phone numbers, websites, addresses, hotlines, and emergency action plans for safety,” Johnson said.

GLOBAL BEACON OF LIGHT — Johnson is widely known as an activist for individuals who have experienced or are presently being mistreated and abused. Moreover, amongst her notable goals are to serve people of various races and both sexes. Also, Johnson’s key objectives, particularly through what she describes as “societal transparency,” are to empower, transform, and rebuild the lives of women and teen girls through Finding Your Destiny, Inc. — especially by way of Biblical principles, or a spiritual avenue, of sorts, for teaching about domestic violence, suicide, and other forms of abuse.

In addition, Johnson emphasized that she’s aiming to create partnerships with other organizations that share similar objectives and missions geared toward to fighting domestic violence.

Credit her beloved children from heaven above for providing her with the continuous support and inspiration she needs to function daily in her God-given assignment.

PLEASE DONATE TO THE CA– USE: https://www.gofundme.com/domestic-violence-org-help-needed

“I know Destiny and Mark are interceding and helping me stay strong, focused, and determined to fight domestically and internationally,” Johnson said.

Ironically, Johnson has organized an internship program through her non-profit organization as a way to reach back and aid others in fulfilling their dream and joining the fight against domestic violence.

“The internship teaches about crimes and consequences, criminology, advocacy, victimology, restorative justices, crime scenes, victims of crime, victim questioning and domestic violence,” Johnson explained.

While Johnson’s organization has proven time and again to be an effective avenue for combating domestic violence, she emphasized, among other observations, which the justice must be served for present and future victims which, according to her, wasn’t the case for her daughter.

“The justice system failed to charge Destiny’s murderer for his crime,” Johnson said. He was allowed to walk free and he murdered another woman. The injustice I received and felt was so devastating that I created an internship program through my organization for criminal justice to inspire every student to do the right thing for victims of victimology. I encourage my students to always display these three values: integrity, empathy, and respect for all crime scenes, families of murdered victims, and for victims.”

As for her itinerary, Johnson’s organization will host a major event on October 6 to commemorate the life of Destiny, as well as domestic violence survivors and other murdered victims whose lives were cut short due to domestic violence.

In addition, Johnson emphasized that Finding Your Destiny plans to “open heaven” during her forthcoming event as a way to send everlasting love and peace to every person murdered by domestic violence and other forms of abuse.

“This is going to be a national and international movement on Oct 6, 2017,” Johnson said.

A development that in likelihood, figures to bring smiles to the faces of Destiny and Mark — all while her pride and joy look on from heaven above.

South Carolina Pastor Yolanda Townsend’s 7th Annual Pink Pajama Party figures to hold more meaning amid potentially fatal house fire

WE ARE FAMILY — Greenville, South Carolina-area Pastor Yolanda Townsend pictured with her family (from left to right): her son, Christian, 11, husband, Christopher Townsend, Sr., and their daughter, Crystal, who is nine years old. Yolanda Townsend has been actively involved in the ministry for a little more than 18 years.

GREENVILLE, South CarolinaYolanda Townsend has been actively involved in ministry for nearly two decades — 18-plus years to be exact.

Like virtually all men and women whom God has strategically called to preach and spread the Gospel, the DIVAS 4 Christ Ministries Founder undoubtedly has witnessed seasons in which she has endured her share of sufferings and persecutions and turmoil and fiery trials.

Take, for instance, how Townsend and her husband, Christopher Townsend, Sr., collectively were left to process the disheartening developments surrounding the death of their oldest son, Christopher Lamont Townsend Jr., who died at birth.

As if that wasn’t enough to place on trial the faith of a couple whose reputation is such that they are on fire for God, take, for instance, the tumultuous, potentially-fatal rash of events that, as Yolanda Townsend explained during a recent interview with Making Headline News, practically sums up why her Seventh Annual Pink Pajama Party that is scheduled for February 25 at the Empowerment Worship Center (at 31 Calhoun Avenue in Greenville, South Carolina) will unfold accompanied by the appropriate theme, “Polished Diamond For His Glory.”

WEEPING MAY ENDURE FOR A NIGHT — At approximately 7:30 on the morning of September 22, 2016, the Townsends’ Greenville-area home went up in flames and nearly cost the family of four their lives.
But God…
“I woke up in a room full of smoke upstairs,” Yolanda Townsend explained. “There was so much smoke that I could not see what was immediately around me. I stepped out in the hallway calling out for our children. As I stumbled back into my bedroom I grabbed my home phone to call 911.”

At approximately 7:30 on the morning of September 22, 2016, the Townsends’ Greenville-area home went up in flames and nearly cost the family of four their lives.

But God…

“I woke up in a room full of smoke upstairs,” Yolanda Townsend explained. “There was so much smoke that I could not see what was immediately around me. I stepped out in the hallway calling out for our children. As I stumbled back into my bedroom I grabbed my home phone to call 911.”

Consequently, the enemy, as we are reminded specifically through God’s manual, had come in like a flood. In other words, the weapon had been formed, considering the phone wasn’t working once Yolanda Townsend had finally found her way to it.

But God…

“At that moment I had to remind myself that I have the ability to speak to my situation,” Yolanda Townsend said. “I went from both phones — home and cell — to now a phone call coming in. I answered shouting, ‘My house is on fire! Please call 911!’ Once I rebuked the devour, I then had an open line on the home phone.”

Still, satan, it seemed, was infringing upon the Townsends’ household much like he had done with Job.

BUT JOY COMES IN THE MORNINGWhile repairs and renovations were in the works, the Townsends had spent nearly the next four-plus months in a nearby hotel, a development that, by all accounts, provided them with a renewed sense of enthusiasm, much less a newfound disposition on life.

“But the enemy wasn’t done with me,” Yolanda explained. “As I was now on the line with 911, I didn’t realize I was standing so close to my stairs.”

So close was she to the stairs that she had slipped and fell, tumbling down what she recalled was “all 15 (cases.)

In essence, what was a real life, potentially fatal sequence of events in the Townsends’ residence seemed much like a docudrama, made-for-television movie.

DANCING DIVAShe upcoming five-hour Pink Pajamas Party will undoubtedly hold a more compelling and significant meaning this year.
That’s because God saved a family so that a family could bless a family.

“Had my head hit the foyer, I would have more than likely fallen unconscious and never recovered,” Yolanda said.

But God…

Even after three failed 911 call attempts, this seasoned minister had sensed all along that although she had a close encounter with the massive blaze of fire that destroyed a large portion of her home, she also had a worship encounter, one that was reminiscent to, say, the three Hebrew boys in the fiery furnace.

In a nutshell, God had spared the lives of the Townsends in the midst of a home that was suddenly consumed by fire, thus blanketed by heavy, smothering smoke.

While repairs and renovations were in the works, the Townsends had spent approximately four months in a nearby hotel, a development that, by all accounts, provided them with a renewed sense of enthusiasm, not to mention a newfound disposition on life.

Among the reasons is that even during their brief, but seemingly uncomfortable season of downsizing, there was God, sustaining them. There was God, providing all of their needs, according to His riches and glory through Christ Jesus.

As only He could.

ABOUT THE FATHER’S BUSINESS — Townsend has been actively involved in ministry for nearly two decades — 18-plus years to be exact.
Like virtually all men and women whom God has strategically called to preach and spread the Gospel, the DIVAS 4 Christ Ministries Founder undoubtedly has witnessed seasons in which she has endured her share of sufferings and persecutions and turmoil and fiery trials.
But God…

“I am so grateful for life,” Yolanda, an Anderson, South Carolina native said while displaying her customary smile. “Even though we spent four months in a cramped two bedroom hotel suite, I was alive. We celebrated our daughter’s birthday inside the hotel in October, and our son’s birthday which is on Christmas day. During our stay ministry still continues. As many families and friends near and far sowed seeds and donations into our lives, so did we.”

During their stay at the hotel, the Townsends even recalled having crossed paths with a family of six that had been displaced amid the death of a loved one.

Having collectively taking inventory over their lives, the Townsends knew full well that God had strategically downsized them temporarily just so they could help upsize another family — possibly for on a permanent basis.

“This family of six was in a strange place because of a (family) death at Christmas,” Yolanda said.

But God…

“So we went out and got presents for the two younger children, gave money in a card to the two older children and their parents,” she said. “They were so full of joy for something we saw as so small. It reminded me that God honors the sincere giving heart. Not only were we able to bless the family, but we gained a family of friends for life.”

All of which practically sums up why the upcoming five-hour Pink Pajamas Party will undoubtedly hold a rather, more compelling and emotionally-significant meaning this time around.

That’s because God spared the lives of a family so that family could be a blessing to another family — you know, bear the infirmities of the weak.

Which, of course, means that all of these life-changing, spiritually gut-checking testimonies could very well give way to a number of ladies breaking out in a collective Holy dance — all while wearing pink pajamas, all while partaking in free food and door prizes, all while getting facials and manicures and massage treatments as well as other forms of entertainment.

Just like God.
