Oklahoma City author Tohnyonah Jackson’s bend-but-don’t-break faith gives way to a life-changing book

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. (Psalm 139:14 NIV)


All jokes aside.

Tohnyonah Jackson is a little more than two years removed from having witnessed the much-anticipated release of her very first book.

BEND BUT DON’T BREAK FAITH STEPPER — And so it came to pass on May 31, 2016 that Tohnyonah Jackson, a native of Oklahoma City, had officially made her authorship debut with release of her spiritually gut-checking written document entitled, “Bending But Not Breaking.”

And boy, it’s surely one that is steadily advancing the kingdom for such a time as now.

“I used to tell my friends I was going to write a book, but it was in a joking way,” Jackson told Making Headline News during a weekend interview. “It didn’t manifest until after my grandfather on my dad’s side of the family passed away in August of 2013, a few days after my first grandchild was born.”

For Jackson, it also was a seemingly dark, turbulent season of her life, during which God had deemed it essential to place her faith on trial unlike never before.

“I battled with God, because that’s not what I wanted to do. I was trying to get into nursing school…test after test, fail after fail. I didn’t understand why I was not passing the tests, missing by 1 to 5 points. Later I realized I wasn’t being obedient and had to write.” — Author Tohnyonah Jackson 


And the rest, as they say, was history.

And so it came to pass on May 31, 2016 that Jackson, a native of Oklahoma City, had officially made her authorship debut with release of her spiritually gut-checking written document entitled, “Bending But Not Breaking,” a 62-page, self-published project that depicts the life of a young girl who wanted to be loved by her family, but according to the writer who’s widely known as “Author Tohnyonah,” she wound up discovering that love in her family came disguised in abuse, alcohol, drugs, staying in the homes of several family members.

A MUST READ — A 62-page, self-published project that depicts the life of a young girl who wanted to be loved by her family, but according to the writer who’s widely known as “Author Tohnyonah,” she wound up discovering that love in her family came disguised in abuse, alcohol, drugs, staying in the homes of several family members.

As if those personal encounters weren’t enough to rattle and disrupt the life of this young girl, Tohnyonah recalled having been molested as a child, a development that had ultimately led to her being adopted by another family, which unfortunately had given way to her further being molested and abused.

But God…

However, despite her assortment of struggles and turbulence, Author Tohnyonah steadfastly clung to unwavering faith, believing that God had a strategic plan for her life from the outset, a plan to prosper and not harm her, a plan that would ultimately blossom into a life-changing testimony for the ages, a plan that would catapult her to the purpose for which God created her.

“In this book, (Author Tohnyonah) sees that God’s loving provision doesn’t give more than one can handle,” said a spokesperson for Jackson’s book in a detail breakdown at Amazon.com.

THE ROMANS 8:18 FACTOR — Even upon the sudden deaths of her beloved mother and close aunt, Jackson sensed that she had to carry out of her God-mandated assignment to compose her book.

For Jackson, her quest to assemble her first book came courtesy of her abstaining from leaning unto her own understanding and seeking and consulting God for a sense of direction.

“I didn’t know what to write until I asked and the Holy Spirit, Who said, ‘The beginning,’” Jackson explained. “And so I did.”

Even upon the sudden deaths of her beloved mother and close aunt, Jackson sensed that she had to carry out of her God-mandated assignment to compose her book.

“I didn’t understand why (they passed away), because I was being obedient (to God),” Jackson said. So from August 2013 through May 2016, through all the losses, my book was released the day before my birthday, May 31, 2016.”

SHE’S STILL STANDING — Despite her assortment of struggles and turbulence, Author Tohnyonah steadfastly clung to unwavering faith, believing that God had a strategic plan for her life from the outset, a plan to prosper and not harm her, a plan that would ultimately blossom into a life-changing testimony for the ages, a plan that would catapult her to the purpose for which God created her.

Much to Jackson’s delight, it is a book that has garnered a slew of rave reviews.

“The message is you do not have to live in your past. Whatever God has taken you through, there is a purpose, so trust the process,” Jackson said. “While writing there were a lot of obstacles that fell in the way to discourage me, but as I wrote, chains were being broken. I was being released from the bondage of hurt, guilt, depression that I didn’t realize I was depressed.”

That’s not all to which Jackson had come to grips amid her season in the wilderness.

“(I learned to embrace) self-love and, most of all, I was gaining more love for God,” Jackson said. “I realize God created me for a special purpose starting with my name (she’s now chuckling). I live by I am fearfully marvelously made.”

All of which sums up why 2019, like 2016, figures to be a season of even more manifested blessings for this brilliantly gifted writer.

DOING IT GOD’S WAY — For Jackson, her quest to assemble her first book came courtesy of her abstaining from leaning unto her own understanding and seeking and consulting God for a sense of direction.

“I haven’t had any speaking engagements, but my vision for 2019 is to start going to speak in different cities to young teenage mothers, young girls in foster care, and young women and girls that have been sexually (abused) and feel like they can’t love,” Jackson said.

What a difference obeying the Voice of God has made.

All jokes aside.

Mid-South entrepreneur Coral Harris-Thomas’ Snatch Me Now venture creating a national presence

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES CORAL HARRIS-THOMAS


Honey, let Coral Harris-Thomas tell ya…

“When I first put my garment on, I was waiting to see what it was gone do for me,” Harris-Thomas, a Mid-South-area businesswoman, said in a rave review of her products at https://snatchmenow.com/.  “It felt good, it looked good, and my stomach was flat. Oh, but when I looked in the mirror…I’m trying to tell you, I was amazed at how I had just dropped three dress sizes. My posture was straight, and when I walked, it felt as if the garment was carrying me.”

Some pretty remarkably compelling comments by an accomplished businesswoman, who has become a fixture for the internationally-acclaimed venture that is Snatch Me Now.

YOU GO GIRL!!! A business that has become ever-so-popular, in large part because of its body shapers, undergarment, and women’s clothing, Coral Harris-Thomas’ Snatch Me Now specializes largely in helping woman enhance their overall beauty.

A business that has become ever-so-popular, in large part because of its body shapers, undergarment, and women’s clothing, Snatch Me Now specializes largely in helping woman enhance their overall beauty.

Harris will be hosting an event on October 6 at 12:30 p.m. CST, during which she will promote her products. This assembly will take at Home2 Suites by Hilton Memphis-Southaven, located at 6750 Southcrest Parkway in Southaven, Mississippi in the DeSoto Room.

Snatch Me Now’s featured product, at least at this particular time Harris-Thomas told Making Headline News this week, is the Rebirth Body Shapers.

“We also offer Coral’s Cosmetics, too,” said Harris-Thomas, introducing the product that bears her name.

A STEP ABOVE THE REST — A business that has become ever-so-popular, in large part because of its body shapers, undergarment, and women’s clothing, Snatch Me Now specializes largely in helping woman enhance their overall beauty.

Interestingly and much to her delight, it’s seems that Harris-Thomas was built to delve off into the world of entrepreneurship, in large part because, well, it’s in her bloodline.

“I am a fourth-generation entrepreneur, so I am competitive by nature, because I have been around business owners all of my life,” said Harris-Thomas, a doctoral candidate at Cambridge (Massachusetts) College, who also boasts a wealth of experience in the education sector.

Demonstrating a servant’s heart through her business venture is especially vital, Harris-Thomas acknowledged, in part because she’s afforded the golden opportunity to enrich and impact someone’s life, all the while helping to enhance their beauty in the process.

C’MON, Y’ALL, C’MON — What’s even more intriguing is that Harris-Thomas’ Snatch Me Now venture is committed to snatching people from various walks of life — young and old.

“I like the fact that I am helping others the most (through) my business,” Harris-Thomas said. “When women put on the garment, their confidence increases. When the ladies get made up, they light up like Christmas trees.”

What’s even more intriguing is that Harris-Thomas’ Snatch Me Now venture is committed to snatching people from various walks of life — young and old.

“My business caters to people of all ages,” Harris-Thomas said. “My daughter is 11 years old and she is my youngest client. Today, my oldest client is 81 years old.”

Talk about having a monumental impact, courtesy of a booming business that has allowed this progressive, thriving businesswoman to put her immeasurable entrepreneurship skills on display in a variety of places around the country, most notably in Minnesota, Alabama, Texas and, of course, her native home state of Tennessee.

“I have been to a lot of places, because the makeup line division was started by my mother when I was five years old,” Harris-Thomas, the No. 1 sales distributor for the month of August for Rebirth Body Shapers, explained. “My mother was a traveling vendor, so I traveled across country with her every summer.”

Surely, it’s safe to assume that Harris-Thomas has gone to great lengths to ensure that her assortment of business ventures savor sustained success.

Just as her mother taught her years ago.

HEART OF GOLD — Demonstrating a servant’s heart through her business venture is especially vital, Harris-Thomas acknowledged, in part because she’s afforded the golden opportunity to enrich and impact someone’s life, all the while helping to enhance their beauty in the process.

“My mission is to snatch up ask many ladies as I can to help them enhance their natural beauty,” said Harris-Thomas whom, aside from her mother (the late Cora Barley Harris) was greatly inspired by Rebirths CEO Dorothy Cook to pursue her dreams as an entrepreneur.

“They are both strong black women that are great leaders,” Harris-Thomas said.

To her credit, Harris-Thomas is especially grateful of the notion that she’s afforded the notable task of instilling in her daughter the same life-enhancing qualities she acquired from her beloved mother.

So honey, let her tell ya…

“Women go through some much on a daily basis, so it is important to me to uplift as many women as I can on a daily basis,” Harris-Thomas said. “It makes me feel like I am walking in my purpose.”

Just as the late Cora Barley Harris had envisioned all along.

Beaumont, Texas author Shelly Lee defies odds as a single parent, earns degree and writes two compelling books

In case you don’t know her, Shelly Lee would like to introduce herself.

DESTINY STEPS — Accomplished Beaumont, Texas author Shelly Lee has produced two books over a span of a little more than a year. Lee’s “The Sheldra Series: An Unknown Love (The Sheldra Series-Book One) (Volume 1) was released on Aug 2, 2017, a little more than a year after her first written document went public.

For starters, Lee was raised in the small, rural East Texas town of Bon Wier which, according to the latest U.S. census, is comprised of somewhere in the neighborhood of about 1,005 residents.

A proud alum of Newton (Texas) High School, where she had compiled a perfect attendance record from the time she enrolled as a freshman until she earned her diploma, this single mother of two eventually advanced her education, a trend that was culminated with her earning Associate and undergraduate degrees from Lamar Institute of Technology and Lamar University, respectively.

A woman of devout faith who is a proud product of the historic Church of God In Christ, Lee was raised with the proverbial “PK” label — or Preacher’s Kid — considering she is the daughter of a now deceased preacher.

“I have been a single parent since my children were conceived,” Lee told Making Headline News this week. “My daughter is 23 and attending college.  My son is 21 and a high school graduate, seeking a better job.”

As if those notable accolades aren’t enough evidence to suggests, among other things, that Lee has gone to great lengths to defy arguably the toughest odds as a single parent, here’s yet another remarkably brilliant achievement she has assumed to complement that of a college graduate: Lee is an accomplished author and, to her distinctly unique credit, she has been nothing short of amazing since she began writing books.

For the record, it all started when she was a young Christian girl within the four walls of her neighborhood church.

“As an adult growing up in church and hearing messages from God, I kept tablets of sermons that I heard and of messages that God gave to me,” Lee explained.

As a result to such an intriguing strategy, Lee’s solid preparation had eventually clashed with her golden opportunity which, fortunately for Lee, had given way to her witnessing the release of her very first book entitled, “God Spoke and I Listened.”

“In November 2015, God told me it was time to birth the book.” Lee said. So I began writing.”

Much to her delight, Lee needed less than a year to compose “God Spoke And I Listened,” which was officially released on August 2, 2016.

Much to her delight, Lee needed less than a year to compose “God Spoke And I Listened,” which was officially released on August 2, 2016.

An awe-inspiring written document that is comprised of 130 pages, Lee’s “God Spoke And I Listened” is dedicated mostly to people who want God to speak to them, or for those who sense that God don’t merely converse with them.

“I am a firm believer that God speaks, and this book is my testimony that He does,” Lee explained in a detailed breakdown of her book at Amazon.com. “When I was growing up, preachers always said, ‘Pray and ask God…He will speak to you.’ I found it a bit scary to hear God speak, but I was always curious.”

As Lee specifically recalls, she was somewhere around the age of 23 or 25 when she initially heard God speak to her, “of all people,” she acknowledged with a straight face.

As Lee specifically recalls, she was, well, somewhere around the age of 23 or 25 when she initially heard God speak to her, “of all people,” she acknowledged with a straight face.

“He gave me my first inspirational message,” Lee explained. “So if you are still waiting on God to speak to you, I am a witness that He will. Just keep praying and waiting.”

Speaking of waiting, it wasn’t long after Lee had made her authorship debut that Book No. 2 had surfaced on the market.

Lee’s “The Sheldra Series: An Unknown Love (The Sheldra Series-Book One) (Volume 1) was released on August 2, 2017, a little more than a year after her first project went public.

A proud alum of Newton (Texas) High School, where she had compiled a perfect attendance record from the time she enrolled as a freshman until she earned her diploma, this single mother of two eventually advanced her education, a trend that was culminated with her earning Associate and undergraduate degrees from Lamar Institute of Technology and Lamar University, respectively.

In this book, Sheldra Griffing, the featured character, is described as a woman on a mission, as well as  considers herself “an 8” when it comes to looks, education, and responsibility (on a 10-point scale, of course). Interestingly, she does her best at whatever task is given to her considering she is a businesswoman, not to mention a mother and daughter. “Sheldra loves the Lord and does her best to abide by His Word,” said a spokesperson for Lee’s second book in a description at Amazon.com. “So what is Sheldra’s problem?

“The only thing Sheldra has issues with is men,” the spokesperson said forthrightly. “Her first issue is that she desires to be married but has no prospects. She often wonders will it ever happen for her. Her second issue is that she grew up in a single parent home without a father. Sheldra could not understand why her dad did not have a relationship with her. Many nights she cried on her pillow because she did not know her dad. Follow Sheldra’s story, as she experiences a short lived relationship with a father she never knew in an unknown love.”

As expected, the feedback, Lee said, has been pretty much what she expected: favorable.

Moreover, she’s especially pleased that she’s finally walking in the purpose for which God created her, a purpose that includes advancing the Kingdom through her immeasurable gifts as a writer.

“I feel that writing is my God-given (talent),” Lee said. “His purpose is for me to encourage and inspire others through my writing.”

Lee would be remiss, she said, if she did not pay homage to her biggest supporters.

An inspiring and touching written document that is comprised of 130 pages, Lee’s “God Spoke And I Listened” is dedicated mostly to people who want God to speak to them or for those who sense that God don’t merely speaks to them.

“I would like to thank all of my family and friends that believed in my dream and helped me to achieve it,” Lee said. “May God continue to bless each of you.”

Just as He has done time and again on her behalf.

Talk about a thorough and inspiring introduction of a devout woman of faith.

Houston businesswoman Angela Denise defies array of odds, impacting others through solid relationship building

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. (Romans 8:18 KJV)

 

DALLAS — Come hell or high water, Angela Denise is thoroughly persuaded that God has infused within her the wherewithal to possess and savor the abundant life that Christ came to give her.

WEARING MANY HATS — A native of White Plains, Virginia — an unincorporated community that’s located in Brunswick County — Angela Denise is a Houston-based Certified Life and Relationship Coach, an accomplished Author, Transformational Speaker, as well as a Radio Host.

To grasp a broader perspective of this notion, look no further than her awe-inspiring life-enhancing testimony.

“God wants greater for us,” Angela Denise said during an interview this week with Making Headline News. “He did not want to see us treating unions like it is just another thing we do and divorce is okay.   God wants to see us healthier, stronger, wealthy, and in a union that is to make us stronger as people.”

Now mind you, there is an assortment of vital reasons why Angela Denise has deemed it essential to become so passionate about helping bring about change, particularly as it pertains to establishing solid interpersonal relational skills.

“I am seeing too much arguing, fussing, fighting, cheating, and lack of support from others and it is time to make a change,” she acknowledged without hesitation.

All things considered and to her credit, Angela Denise isn’t one who’s seeking to bring about change as an occasional occurrence, of sorts.

Rather, she is destined to ensure that these notable, relationship-enhancing changes become a daily trend whereby those who are impacted will, in turn, inspire others to follow suit.

A native of White Plains, Virginia — an unincorporated community that’s located in Brunswick County — Angela Denise is a Houston-based Certified Life and Relationship Coach, an accomplished Author, Transformational Speaker, as well as a Radio Host.

IN HER ELEMENT — For what it’s worth, a slew of her personal experiences, coupled with her willingness to display transparency, have greatly broaden Angela Denise’ horizon in what undoubtedly has become a rather competitive line of work.

A thriving, progressive career that routinely affords her with the golden opportunity to “let my creative mind flow,” acknowledged Angela Denise “and their or no limitations,” she said her chief mission for functioning in her element as a  Life/Relationship Coaching is to diligently aid men and women to build stronger, self, personal, and business relationships as a gateway to become better people and, above all, live better lives in the process.

“The competitive drive (through my ventures) propelled me, because I have been hurt in relationships and I see so many others get hurt in relationships, or build life time relationships with people that are only supposed to be in their lives for a season,” Angela Denise explained.

For what it’s worth, a slew of her personal experiences, coupled with her willingness to display transparency, have greatly broaden Angela Denise’ horizon in what undoubtedly has become a rather competitive line of work.

“I developed a positive lifestyle to get over the hurt, pain, frustration, and anger,” Angela Denise said. “I was seeing other people such as co-workers, friends, and family not able to get over the pain, and their lives would suffer because they were stuck in the moment of hurt and could not move forward.”

REMOVING THE LIMITS — A thriving, progressive career that routinely affords her with the golden opportunity to “let my creative mind flow,” acknowledged Angela Denise “and their or no limitations,” she said her chief mission for functioning in her element as a  Life/Relationship Coaching is to diligently aid men and women to build stronger, self, personal, and business relationships as a gateway to become better people and, above all, live better lives in the process.

That she had exercised her faith in ways unimaginable, thus developed the mindset to observe life from God’s perspective had ultimately given way to Angela Denise healing the right way through her unfavorable circumstances.

Talk about weathering the storms — with God, her Helper, steering her along, as only He could.

“Some people would ask, ‘How are you not mad or angry?’ and ‘How did you move forward to a point that you are now friends with your ex?’” Angela Denise, who has adopted the motto, I AM Standing Strong, recalled. “Like some many people, I was lied on, cheated on by someone that I thought I would spend the rest of my life with, and it hurt and, yes, I was hurt, frustrated, angry, sad…every emotion there was, I felt it. But I knew I could not stay in that place. It was not helping me, or my kids.

Much to her delight, even through her assortment of hurtful encounters, she demonstrated enough meekness to reconnect with her worth, an upward, profitable trend that eventually served as the precursor to her destiny.

BUT GOD — Much to her delight, even through her hurtful encounters, she demonstrated enough meekness to reconnect with her worth, an upward trend that eventually served as the precursor to her destiny.

“I was more than that,” Angela Denise said of her rocky and stormy past. “But I knew before I could help anyone or anything else, I needed to help myself.  I had to learn how to truly love myself, motivate myself, and become whole as a person. Once I was complete, I could now help others move forward from their hurt and pain and build stronger relationships within themselves.”

An accomplished writer who authored the book, “Ladies, What In The Hell Are We Doing?” Angela Denise is the proud host of the radio show, I AM Standing Strong, a globally-acclaimed broadcast that airs regularly on the Dallas-based Den Radio Station and can be heard daily at 11 a.m. CST.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — A 1997 graduate of Brunswick Senior High School, Angela Denise holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management (2013) and a Master’s in Business Administration (2015).

“(The show is geared toward) building strong self, personal, and business relationships,” said Angela Denise, adding that she and her constituents are developing a tour that will be comprised of Women’s Conferences and Empowerment lunches that will reach several cities throughout the U. S. “My mission is to encourage, teach, and transform women all over the world to stand strong and to build stronger and healthier, self, personal and business relationships.”

A 1997 graduate of Brunswick Senior High School who holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management (2013) and a Master’s in Business Administration (2015), Angela Denise has announced a Women’s Empowerment Luncheon that will take place on April 21.

In addition, she will conduct a Singles Class April 28 and a Marriage Class on May 19 at times and sites to be announced.

“It is imperative to inspire others daily because, as people, we have to grow and elevate,” Angela Denise said. “We cannot continue to settle. “We are hurting as people, and we are carrying that hurt from relationship to relationship without forgiving the person or persons that hurt us. We have to stop the cycle. Forgiveness will heal us and allow us as people to love ourselves.  Because if we love ourselves, we can truly love others and others can truly love us.”

Given all about which she had to weather and overcome, surely, she knows best how to love without limitations.

Sacramento-area businesswoman Terry A. O’Neal enriching and impacting lives globally through an array of endeavors

‘TERRY IS SOOOOOO VERY BRILLIANT’ — To her distinctly unique credit, Terry A. O’Neal occupation includes the 44-year-old Stockton, California native assuming the role as an author, poet, screenwriter, producer, public speaker, motivational speaker, voice over artist, mentor, educator, as well as an instructor of Communications, English, and Literature. Talk a remarkably compelling career for a woman of many hats.

For the record, Terry A. O’Neal could be appropriately described as one who is a Jill of all trades.

You know, a woman who is skilled in or adept at a wide variety of tasks or abilities, not to mention one who is quite efficient in many endeavors.

Consider, for instance, how O’Neal broke down her professional lines of work during an exclusive interview this week with Making Headline News.

To her distinctly unique credit, O’Neal’s occupation includes the 44-year-old Stockton, California native presently assuming the role as an author, poet, screenwriter, producer, public speaker, motivational speaker, voice over artist, mentor, educator, as well as an instructor of Communications, English, and Literature.

Talk a remarkably compelling career for a woman of many hats.

Because her businesses are what she described as “cross functional,” that she has blessed with the gift of giving back is extremely key, O’Neal acknowledged.

“What has driven me most in business was my fervent desire to be successful and to inspire others,” O’Neal said. “Rather than being in competition with others, I was always competing with myself. I constantly challenge myself to be better than I was before.”

Given the immense strides she has made while juggling a slew of notable and commendable tasks, not only is O’Neal excelling mightily, but it’s safe to assume that she has shown virtually no signs of slowing down any time soon. Who can blame her?

WHAT ABOUT TERRY A. O’NEAL? www.TerryAONeal.com 

That’s because for starters, she started an independent book publishing company called Motion Publishing in 1999 whereby she is afforded the opportunity to publish inspirational books of poetry, children’s books, Southern family fiction, and full-length feature screenplays. Interestingly, she is credited for having published the works of several authors, including the youth poetry anthology, Make Some Noise: A Youth Poetry Anthology, which is a collection of poetry and prose written by youth ages ranging in ages 12-to-18.

GLOBAL IMPACT — Interestingly, she immense gifts and talents through entrepreneurship have attracted a global presence, most notably in South Africa, Iran, Jamaica, Australia, Canada, Bermuda, Pakistan, and throughout an array of establishments across America.

It wasn’t long thereafter that O’Neal in 2005 established the Lend Your Hand, Educating the World’s Children non-profit organization, which is designed to support disadvantaged schools, classrooms and deprived youth in general, while supplying them with the proper supplies and/or financial contributions needed to help make learning a success.

Consequently, O’Neal in 2008 founded the Black National Black History Bee, which is a program devised to test students’ knowledge of Black History facts in the form of a trivia competition, of sorts.

Then two years ago, O’Neal’s non-profit organization’s name converted to The Terry O’Neal Foundation, whereby it offers the same services to disadvantaged youth around the world.

SUCH A HUGE INSPIRATION — Given the immense strides she has made while juggling of number of notable and commendable tasks, not only O’Neal excelling mightily, but it’s safe to assume that she has shown virtually no signs of slowing down any time soon.

Also, O’Neal is founder and producer of the entertainment production company called Le Bleu Ray Production, which produces inspirational family films, narratives, and documentaries.

Talk a remarkably compelling career for a woman of many hats.

“Making sure all of my I’s are dotted and T’s are crossed is imperative,” said O’Neal, explaining how her competitive drive in life has propelled her for what undoubtedly is an illustrious career for her. “When it comes to dealing with the personal lives of people — and in the business, in general — quality over quantity applies to every aspect of it.”

And because her businesses are what she described as “cross functional,” that she has blessed with the gift of giving back is extremely key, O’Neal acknowledged.

“Although (my businesses) operate independently to complete a specific task, they come together and work collectively to meet one common core goal: to create positive change for society through arts, literature, culture, and education,” O’Neal, a California State University at Sacramento alumna, said. “I appreciate my ability to give back and make a difference in the lives of others.”

O’Neal is credited for having started an independent book publishing company called Motion Publishing in 1999 whereby she is afforded the opportunity to publish inspirational books of poetry, children’s books, Southern family fiction, and full-length feature screenplays. Interestingly, she is credited for having published the works of several authors, including the youth poetry anthology, Make Some Noise: A Youth Poetry Anthology, which is a collection of poetry and prose written by youth ages ranging in ages 12-to-18.

As for those who have the luxury of benefiting from her valiant contributions as an accomplished businesswoman, O’Neal’s publishing company caters to all ages and ethnicities, she emphasized.

“Most of the works published have an emphasis on Black heritage and culture,” O’Neal said. “We put out picture children’s books, poetry, young adult fiction, southern fiction, non-fiction, inspirational stories, and screenplays.”

Moreover, the Terry O’Neal Foundation caters primarily to disadvantaged schools and youth ages 18 years and under, she said.

SHE’S SO ON POINT — “Making sure all of my I’s are dotted and T’s are crossed is imperative,” said O’Neal, explaining how her competitive drive in life has propelled her for what undoubtedly is an illustrious career for her. “When it comes to dealing with the personal lives of people — and in the business, in general — quality over quantity applies to every aspect of it.”

Interestingly, she immense gifts and talents through entrepreneurship have attracted a global presence, most notably in South Africa, Iran, Jamaica, Australia, Canada, Bermuda, Pakistan, and throughout an array of establishments across America.

“My personal mission is to be a bridge that others can cross on their journey to achieve success,” said O’Neal, adding that her three children have been amongst her grandest inspirations. “Not only do I want my own children to know that can achieve any goals they set in life, but I want to uplift entire communities through my work to help shape future generations into courageous leaders with strong moral character.”

To her credit, she has uplifted people from various walks of life for 20 years and counting.

Which, of course, for the record, Terry A. O’Neal could be appropriately described as one who is a Jill of all trades.

Atlanta businesswoman Kendra Turner speaking out against domestic abuse through her thriving S.O.D.A organization

WALKING IN HER PURPOSE — A once battered woman who encountered years of being victimized by domestic abuse, Atlanta businesswoman Kendra Turner, 45-year-old native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, deemed it essential some time ago to share of stories and testimonies as a way to help transform lives for the better. To her credit and out of act of obedience to Almighty God, Turner in the Spring of 2015 established a notable foundation called S.O.D.A.

You best believe Kendra Turner knows.

She knows what it’s like to be embarrassed.

She knows what it’s like to be gripped and saddled by the spirit of shame.

She knows what it’s like to harbor the spirit of fear for long periods of time.

She knows what it’s like to be unjustifiably judged amid a tumultuous, chaotic season in her life, one in which she didn’t merely ask to be a part of.

Most importantly, she knows full well that as she says quite often, “There is life after abuse.”

Regardless, just like the Biblical story of Job, whom God strategically handpicked to endure arguably the most challenging times of his life, Turner — given that about which she faced — had ultimately found herself faced with the kind of adversity that would have prompted others to throw in the towel.

“I wanted to offer survivor to victim support,” Tuner told Making Headline News this week. “The only person who better understands a battered woman would be a once battered woman.”

To her credit and out of an act of obedience to Almighty God, Turner in the Spring of 2015 established a notable foundation called S.O.D.A.

DEFYING ALL ODDS — Just like the Biblical story of Job, whom God strategically handpicked to endure arguably the most challenging times of his life, Turner — given that about which she faced — had ultimately found herself faced with the kind of adversity that would have prompted others to throw in the towel.

An acronym that stands for Survivors Of Domestic Abuse, Turner is widely known as an Atlanta-based advocate, survivor, and overcomer of domestic abuse which, as a result, has inspired her to become an advocate mostly for teens and young adult women, both nationally and internationally.

“S.O.D.A. was birthed because I was a survivor of domestic abuse,” Turner said.

Turner’s organization was started in the aftermath of what was a rocky, yet stormy eight-year marriage to a man whom once stared her in the face and pledged to honor and love her as Christ loves the church.

Unfortunately for Turner, though, all she experienced, really, was a marriage that was mired by physical, verbal, emotional and sometimes financial abuse, a marriage that had ultimately ended in divorce.

For her efforts, Turner has been named a nominee for “Motivational Speaker Of The Year” in the upcoming inaugural TAP Awards in November in Jonesboro.

Still, even after having pressed and navigated her way through such a trying chapter in her life, amongst the things about which Turner had come to discover was that God was there all the time, right there positioning and equipping and empowering her for a time such as now.

“What I love most about S.O.D.A is that it allows me to provide encouragement, uplift and teach self-love to women who have survived domestic abuse and to those who are wanting out,” said Turner, explaining the purpose for her organization. “I love the fact that I can be transparent with these women and they understand where I’m coming from.”

As usual, the feedback when sharing her experiences surrounding domestic abuse has been downright emotional for those who can attest to Turner’s situation.

“It’s a bitter sweet moment seeing them cry but that’s just part of releasing the hurt, anger and betrayal,” Turner said. “The best feeling of all is when a woman tells you how you’ve given them courage to leave.”

Now that her failed married, coupled with her constant battles through domestic abuse are all but distant memories, Turner’s organization appears to have become a movement, considering she has been afforded opportunities to share her story on much larger platforms across the country.

Now that her failed married, coupled with her constant battles through domestic abuse are all but distant memories, Turner’s organization appears to have become a movement, considering she has been afforded opportunities to share her story on much larger platforms across the country.

Besides partnering with a host of African-American Greek organizations to promote S.O.D.A, Turner has spoken before sizable audiences at several Historically Black Colleges And Universities. And over the next three months, she has speaking engagements scheduled in a variety of places around the country, most notably in Atlanta, Oakbrook, Illinois, Raleigh, North Carolina, Memphis, Port Gibson, Mississippi, Chicago, Treme, Louisiana, and Jonesboro, Arkansas.

In addition, Turner has been named a nominee for “Motivational Speaker Of The Year” in the upcoming inaugural TAP Awards in November in Jonesboro.

“I’m grateful that God chose me for this assignment, because I’ve gotten the chance to see that so many women are silent and hurting because of domestic abuse,” Turner said. “Domestic abuse is one of those topics that people want to sweep under the rug, but I refuse to.”

Because after all, she knows full well that as she says quite often, “There is life after abuse.”

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.

Houston-area author/evangelist Dr. Sena Whitaker’s latest book provides a unique, Godly twist to caregivers

DALLAS — Leave it to Dr. Sena Whitaker to go to great lengths to place a unique spin on arguably some of life’s most vital issues.

For starters, Dr. Whitaker, a gifted and brilliant writer, in May 2013 witnessed the much-anticipated release of her book, “I’m Sleeping With The Pastor!!!” an informative, awe-inspiring written document in which she shares candidly, enthusiastically, and transparently about an assortment of her experiences as a pastor’s wife — all while simultaneously encouraging and empowering pastors’ wives to flourish in their high calling, most notably through Biblical viewpoints and principles.

 

Then just recently, Dr. Whitaker deemed it essential to provide a rather unique and unorthodox perspective to caregivers by way of what she describes as a self-help book and resource guide that will greatly enable them to care for themselves while meeting the challenges of caring for those they love who are need of constant care.

HEART OF GOLD —- Dr. Sena Whitaker (third from left) deemed it essential to provide a rather unique and unorthodox perspective to caregivers by way of what she describes as a self-help book and resource guide that will greatly enable them to care for themselves while meeting the challenges of caring for those they love who are need of constant care. A Houston-area evangelist and the First Lady of a nearby Lufkin, Texas-area church, Dr. Whitaker is the mastermind behind the book, “What Shall We Do With Mom?: A Caregiver’s Heartbreaking Dilemma.

A Houston-area evangelist and the First Lady of a nearby Lufkin, Texas-area church, Dr. Whitaker is the mastermind behind the book, “What Shall We Do With Mom?: A Caregiver’s Heartbreaking Dilemma.

Her latest project officially made its presence on the market back on May 10, 2017. Dr. Whitaker’s “What Shall We Do With Mom?: A Caregiver’s Heartbreaking Dilemma” is widely regarded as a penetrating memoir and self-help book that was born from a heart that was broken by this author’s constant struggle with caring for her aging mother while simultaneously witnessing the ups and downs of her health, according to a detailed description of Dr. Whitaker’s book at Amazon.com.

Interesting, this writer and her siblings were faced with a rather intriguing, forthright question that apparently had lingered for some time.

BUT GOD — All things, Dr. Whitaker’s latest book is beneficial and therapeutic in that it serves as a pivotal reminder those who encounter a similar situation must become totally dependent and reliant on God’s everlasting power and providential care.

 

The question: “What shall we do with Mom?”

 

Nevertheless and most importantly, understand this about this big-hearted, compassionate author and native of Philadelphia: At the end of the real day, she doesn’t merely regret the monumental role that routinely called for her to care for her beloved mother, particularly during the waning years of her life.

By and large, Dr. Whitaker’s “What Shall We Do With Mom?: A Caregiver’s Heartbreaking Dilemma” appropriately provides those who are faced with similar predicaments an effectively informative tool that will aid them mightily in finding that same place of peace and encouragement as this Godly writer had ultimately possessed.

All things considered, Dr. Whitaker’s latest book is beneficial and therapeutic in that it serves as a pivotal reminder in that those who encounter a similar situation must become totally dependent and reliant on God’s everlasting power and providential care.

When asked who will benefit from reading this book, Dr. Whitaker, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, said, “Men and women who are caring for, have cared for, or may become caregivers for the elderly or anyone in need of constant care. It is also for those who desire to reach out to caregivers with understanding, empathy, and love.”

While the feedback since the release of her latest book has been positive, Dr. Whitaker said, she emphasized also that this project — like her previous book — is aligned with the divine purpose for which God has created her.

“God created me to share the good news of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ though teaching, preaching, and the written word,” said Dr. Whitaker, who has been a licensed minister for a little more than three decades. “My book is Biblically based and written from a Christian perspective, thus allowing me to share this good news with caregivers, wherever they may be on their caregiving journey.”

Besides XulonPress.com, Dr. Whitaker’s book is also available at Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com. The eBook version is available at Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com, and Apple iBooks.

CARRYING ON MOM’S LEGACY — While the feedback since the release of her latest book has been positive, Dr. Whitaker said, she emphasized that this project — like her previous book — is aligned with the divine purpose for which God has created her.

“In the book, I candidly write about my real and personal emotional upheavals and questions to God and align with how others in my position might feel, or may have felt in the past,” Dr. Whitaker explained. “The book also contains reflections from my siblings, a gallery of color photos, God’s promises and prayers, and contact information for agencies that can be instrumental in assisting caregivers with caring for their loved ones.

“I also include a very extensive list of sources that are cited in my book for caregivers who desire additional information about caregiving.”

As word continues to spread amongst the masses about her new book, Dr. Whitaker is confident that God is pleased with the lofty assignment to which He had given her through this newly-released project. Also, she is currently working on her next book about embracing the love of God after the death of a child.

Leave it to Dr. Whitaker to go to great lengths to place a unique spin on arguably some of life’s most vital issues.

To her credit, her latest book is no exception.

Indiana-based author Quiandrea Borders on her inspiring newly-released book: ‘Grow through what you go through’

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. (Romans 8:37)

 

MORE THAN A CONQUEROR — A graduate of Arkansas State University who holds degrees in Criminology and Sociology, God essentially added yet another supernatural blessing to Quiandrea Borders’ writing repertoire when He stilled within the perseverance and wherewithal to assemble the book, “The Adjusted Crown.”

DALLAS — Say what you want about Quiandrea Borders.

But come hell or high water, whether her faith appears bleak and she seem on the brink of landing on shaky ground, know this about this devout, progressively resilient woman of faith:

She knows full well she is more than a conqueror through Him Who loves her.

That, by all accounts, practically sums up why Borders, a young, gifted writer since she was 12 years of age, deems it essential to often to put her feelings and personal experiences in writing, a trend that has benefited her mightily ever since God strategically introduced her to such a notable gift.

“I’ve been writing since I was 12, but never knew I had what it took to write a book until two years ago,” Borders, 32, a single mother of one, told Making Headline News this week.

THE FINISHED HARDWARE — A paperback written document that is comprised of 122 pages, Borders — who began writing her book in 2015 — needed somewhere in the neighborhood of two years to construct a project that officially hit the market back on June 13.

A graduate of Arkansas State University who holds degrees in Criminology and Sociology, God essentially added yet another supernatural blessing to Borders’ writing repertoire when He stilled within the perseverance and wherewithal to assemble the book, “The Adjusted Crown.”

A paperback written document that is comprised of 122 pages, Borders — who began writing her book in 2015 — needed somewhere in the neighborhood of two years to construct a project that officially hit the market back on June 13.

For Borders, a native of Jonesboro, Arkansas who presently resides in Indiana, that she has finally made her authorship debut undoubtedly is testament of her solid work ethic, particularly as it pertains to accomplishing her educational goals, thus going to great lengths to create a favorable environment for her daughter.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED — Interesting enough, while Border endured an array of hurdles about which she had to clear during the writing process of her book — “I grew discouraged and side tracked,” she said — she finally completed her book in February of this year, thus effectively reaching her divine message’s finish line as a result.

Borders’ “The Adjusted Crown” is a book that encourages individuals to turn their pain into power, said a spokesperson for her book in a detailed description at Amazon.com.

In addition, Borders specifically acknowledged that after having endured a slew of failed relationships, dealing with the intense challenges that are affiliated with being a single parenting, having faced domestic abuse and being raised without a father, her initial book is vital and life-changing in that it helps an oppressed and spiritually wounded people recapture — and retain — the crown for God has strategically reserved for them.

AND THE WINNER IS…For her valiant efforts as a notable author, coupled with her remarkable contributions to the community, Borders was recently named one of three nominees for the inaugural TAP Awards Author Of The Year during an event that will that place November 11 at her college alma mater.

That, after all, is explains why keeping one’s crown adjusted at all times is absolutely essential, this writer suggests.

“The fight within is priceless when God gets the glory out of the situation,” Borders explained. “This book also encourages you to keep your faith in God and always keep His word hidden in your heart. A scripture and a prayer a day will keep the devil away.”

In Borders’ “The Adjusted Crown,” she even sends what appears to be a direct message to women.

“The reason I chose to write this memoir was to inspire, encourage and strengthen women all over the world no matter what life throws at you,” Borders said. “I have gotten tremendous feedback from my readers thus far. Several women have been inspired and encouraged to keep pushing forward and boss up.”

HER PRIDE AND JOY — For Borders, a native of Jonesboro, Arkansas who presently resides in Indiana, that she has finally made her authorship debut undoubtedly is testament of her solid work ethic, particularly as it pertains to accomplishing her educational goals and going to great lengths to create a favorable environment for her daughter.

Interesting enough, while Borders endured an array of hurdles about which she had to clear during the writing process of her book — “I grew discouraged and side tracked,” she said — she finally completed the book in February of this year, thus effectively reaching her divine message’s finish line as a result.

“The divine message that I want all my readers to know is regardless of life’s obstacles, there is hope,” Borders said.

So what are saying, devout woman of faith?

“Turn your pain into power and trust the process,” said Border, adding that a second edition of The Adjusted Crown is presently in the works. “Always keep God first and that there is a plan and purpose for everything you go through. Grow through what you go through.”

For her valiant efforts as a notable author, coupled with her remarkable contributions to the community, Borders was recently named one of three nominees for the inaugural TAP Awards Author Of The Year during an event that will that place November 11 at her college alma mater.

Also, she has been invited to the nationally-acclaimed “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength” Tour September 2 in Little Rock, Arkansas, during which she will share of her testimonies that ultimately gave way to her composing her first book.

DEFYING THE ODDS — Borders specifically acknowledged that after having endured a slew of failed relationships, dealing with the intense challenges that are affiliated with being a single parenting, having faced domestic abuse and being raised without a father, her initial book is vital and life-changing in that it helps oppressed and spiritually wounded people retain the crown for God has strategically reserved for them.

“I’ve always had a desire to work with young ladies ages 16-25, and writing this memoir has opened up different opportunities for my vision to come to pass,” Borders said. “My heart’s desire is to start my own private charter school for younger ladies that will teach them how to thrive in the world as women with standards, morals and values and those who know their worth.”

Talk about making some major, awe-inspiring moves.
