Collierville offensive lineman Kendarius Malone’s mother writes him an open letter as he lobbies for football scholarship

MEMPHIS — Kendarius Malone can be appropriately described as an opportunistic student athlete.

STOCK RISING — Aside from helping steer the Collierville High to a third place finish in the always rugged 6A Region 7 district, Kendarius Malone enjoyed a resourceful, yet crucial senior season which, to his credit, had given way to at least one college thrusting him under its radar. According to the 17-year-old Collierville native, Mid-South Conference member Kentucky Christian University has expressed interest in Malone, who earned All-Region Honorable Mention for his valiant contributions.

Consider, for instance, how Malone, who recently wrapped up his prep football tenure for Collierville High, had gone about doing the necessary things to enhance his stock as he continues to lobby for a full ride scholarship.

A 6-foot, 260-pound left tackle, Malone made appearances — thus made his presence felt — this past spring and summer during camps at the University of Memphis, Belhaven College, Austin Peay State, not to mention the Team USA Camp.

“In the Team USA Camp, I made it to the final round to be able to play for the United States,” an enthused Malone told Making Headline News this week. “However, I had to withdraw so that I would not lose my eligibility to play for my senior year because of TSSAA rules.”

Although Malone didn’t savor the chance to showcase his football mechanics for his country, his immeasurable body of work, nevertheless, undoubtedly was nothing short of impressive.

For starters, he was the catalyst his senior campaign for a Collierville team that finished the season with a 5-6 overall record, but still managed to advance to the opening round of the TSSAA state playoffs.


EYE OF THE DRAGON

SOMEONE SIGN THIS KID — Malone, who recently wrapped up his prep football tenure for Collierville High, had gone about doing the necessary things to enhance his stock as he continues to lobby for a full ride scholarship.

Aside from helping steer the Dragons to a third place finish in the always rugged 6A Region 7 district, Malone enjoyed a resourceful, yet crucial senior season which, to his credit, had given way to at least one college thrusting him under its radar.

According to the 17-year-old Collierville native, Mid-South Conference member Kentucky Christian University has expressed interest in Malone, who earned All-Region Honorable Mention for his valiant contributions.

“I would say that I had an excellent season,” Malone said.

Much to Malone’s delight, no can attest to how great a season he enjoyed more than his mother, Jennifer Bogan.

ALL AMERICAN IN HIS OWN RIGHT — A 6-foot, 260-pound left tackle, Malone made it appearance — thus made his presence felt — this past spring and summer during camps at the University of Memphis, Belhaven College, Austin Peay State, not to mention the Team USA Camp.

Hours after the Collierville’s team banquet Monday night, Bogan took to her Facebook page, where she assembled an open letter to her son in relatively loving, emotional fashion.

Said Bogan in a spirited, tear-jerking, early morning post that was made public before her nearly-400 social media followers:


Congratulations to Kendarius on a wonderful time at the CHS football banquet. You didn’t receive the top award that you wanted, but baby, the champion lies within your heart. You fought a great battle, and to even see last night happen and for that, there is no trophy, certificate, banner, or plaque worthy enough to symbolize how blessed you are after all that you have been through. You didn’t lose sight of your dreams and didn’t lose your faith in seeing your senior football season happen! Your story is still unfinished. The reason of this path is still unknown, but what we do know is there is purpose behind every situation! The thing I love about you is no matter what, you have not gotten discouraged and still hours later, you looked on to what’s getting ready to happen in the next chapter and the next doors that’s opening, and for that I’m sooo proud of you! Again, congratulations on the award you did receive…keep going and keep having the heart of a champion in all the things you do…with God, ALL things are possible!!! Mama loves you! 


Talk about an encouraging, open letter for the ages — this from a mother whom, years ago, didn’t sense her son would become engaged in athletics.

“I never thought that Kendarius would play football, because he was never interested in sports growing up,” Bogan, a Pharmacy Technician Supervisor at Baptist Memorial Hospital, said. “He was in the shadows of his older brother’s basketball teams, being the water boy. I never thought he would play football until he started his eighth year at First Assembly Christian School and the coaches kept begging him to play and told me that they see so much potential in him.

HOLDING IT DOWN — Malone was the catalyst his senior campaign for a Collierville team that finished the season with a 5-6 overall record, but still managed to advance to the opening round of the TSSAA state playoffs.

“However, I didn’t think anything of it and had said ‘No’ to him playing football until one day he came home with pads, and a consent form.”

Malone, as Bogan recalled, was 14 years old at the time.

A little more than three years removed from having come home with a consent form to play competitive football, Bogan’s son now finds himself just one National Letter of Intent signing away from attending college free of charge.

What a difference having initially assumed the role as a water boy has made.

When asked what kind of player will a college be inheriting if he’s offered a football scholarship, Malone said, “A player that is passionate about the game of football… (one who is) ready to learn and be taught how to excel at the college level, a player that is open to all possibilities, and one the will give 110 percent on every snap and every down.

That, after all, practically sums up why he can be appropriately described as an opportunistic student athlete.

Oklahoma City author Shanell Monique displays agape love through her “Broken Silence” book

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. (Ephesians 4:32 NIV)


Shanell Monique’s doesn’t shy away from the notion that her life is a story.

A memorable, tear-jerking, festive, life-enhancing story, all wrapped up in one.

So much so that this Oklahoma City-based businesswoman-turned-author deemed it essential to compose an empowering book that highlights, among other things, an assortment of her life’s awe-inspiring developments.

ALL IN GOD’S TIMING — Acknowledging, among other things, that she was “tired of being ashamed of things I had no control over,” Shanell Monique had eventually became the mastermind behind the book entitled, “Broken Silence,” a December 2017 released project that is dedicated to those who are ready to set their souls free.

“You know I always said I will write a book about my life, because my life is a story,” Shanell Monique told Making Headline News this week. “It wasn’t until I went through my divorce when God really put it on my heart to finish my story. I went through a depressing (state) and knew it was time to release everything.”

Displaying arguably no signs of spiritual rust amid her marital dissolution, Shanell Monique didn’t just release everything for the sake of releasing everything. Rather, she released everything, in large part because God essentially was changing her for Hid glory.

Acknowledging, among other things, that she was “tired of being ashamed of things I had no control over,” Shanell Monique had eventually became the mastermind behind the book entitled, “Broken Silence,” a December 2017 released project that is dedicated to those who are ready to set their souls free.

“I wanted other women to know there is a light at the end of the tunnel,” said Shanell Monique, further explaining in great detail her purpose for assembling ‘Broken Silence.’ “My slogan is: When you turn pain into power, they hate that. I use my pain to motivate me.”

A book that is comprised of 67 pages in length, Shanell Monique’s “Broken Silence” depicts the life of a young girl named  Daitrell whom, according to the writer, refuse to get hurt again and vows to take care of herself from here on out.

“My strength was merely superficial underneath a beautiful shell that appeared confident, well put together, and secure, but a different person ruled my life,” Shanell Monique acknowledges in a thorough breakdown at Amazon.com. “On the inside, I was broken. Could you be broken too? Are you hiding behind your looks and strength to mask feelings of insecurity, because of betrayals? Have you told yourself you will never trust anyone completely? Only you know deep inside if the answer to any of these question could be yes.”

WE ARE FAMILY — Displaying arguably no signs of spiritual rust amid her marital dissolution, Shanell Monique didn’t just release everything for the sake of releasing everything. Rather, she released everything, in large part because God essentially was changing her for Hid glory.

A book she needed somewhere in the neighborhood of just nine months to write, Shanell Monique’s “Broken Silence” also recalls how healthy relationships and emotions play an integral part in our overall health.

“Most of the time, emotional conditions of the heart are overlooked,” said Shanell Monique, pinpointing the divine message she’s sending to her audience through her book. “These are the conditions that hinder us from experiencing the most precious gift of all — love. Our hearts are so shielded from past hurts, we are incapable of letting love in or out. It is time to put down our shields and love each other the way God intended.”

Besides “Broken Silence,” Shanell Monique also authored the “Love & Confidence Journal, which was published in April 2018.

Much to her delight, she’s been the beneficiary of an array of favorable feedback since the release of her latest project.

CHECK THIS OUT — A book that is comprised of 67 pages in length, Shanell Monique’s “Broken Silence” depicts the life of a young girl named  Daitrell whom, according to the writer, refuse to get hurt again and vows to take care of herself from here on out.

“I would say that I have gotten great feedback,” said Shanell Monique, a Kindergarten instructor for Oklahoma City Public Schools. I do have a great support. (I strive) to be a voice for those who are scared and ashamed to speak out…to encourage others so they know that suicide is not the answer.”

For what’s it worth, Shanell Monique emphasized, among other things, that what it all boils down to is one’s ability to turn lessons into blessings.

“The hardest thing is to forgive a person who’s not sorry,” said Shanell Monique, following up such wholesome wisdom with the familiar Biblical passages that are 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8. “All goals require you to stay focused and ignore what everyone else is doing. You are a woman who shines despite how dark it is. In fact, that is when you shine even brighter.”

YOU GO GIRL!!! Much to her delight, Shanell Monique been the beneficiary of an array of favorable feedback since the release of her latest project.

“It’s time to truly understand your worth. Despite your circumstances there is so much more for you. You may want to know why it’s not working out or what you can do to get it back on track, but to get there you must truly understand who you are in your situation and if the person you are now is the person you want to be and deserves the pain you once allowed. “It’s time to move forward, let go and heal,” Shanell Monique continued. “Once you truly understand that better is waiting for you, (you’ll) stop giving the past its pass to continue to enter and leave your life when it feels like it. You will immediately start to see life is better and feel hopeful again. It’s your time to expect God to introduce you to more.”

Shanell Monique would know.

That’s just what she did — with God, her Helper, leading the way.

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 Pastor Dr. Alandrus P. Spencer’s banner year continues with the forthcoming release of his second book

It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes. (Psalm 119:71 KJV)


Dr. Alandrus P. Spencer is an accomplished Mid-South-area Pastor.

Add to his illustrious resume “extraordinary author” as well.

That’s because days after being named National TAP Author of the Year, Dr. Spencer announced the forthcoming release of his new book entitled, “Encouraging Moment: The Turbulence Was Necessary.”

An 80-Day Devotional Journal, Dr. Spencer’s “Encouraging Moment: The Turbulence Was Necessary” is his second published book and is scheduled to make its official release on December 15.

THE PSALM 119:71 FACTOR — Days after being named National TAP Author of the Year, Dr. Spencer announced the forthcoming release of his new book entitled, “Encouraging Moment: The Turbulence Was Necessary.”

 

A native of Chicago, who currently resides in Jonesboro, Arkansas — though he was raised in nearby Blytheville — Dr. Spencer’s “Encouraging Moment: The Turbulence Was Necessary” will debut a little more than 15 months after he made his authorship debut, courtesy of his initial written document entitled,  “Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment.”

“I chose to write this book because I love to encourage others, and I felt I could give them these same quotes that challenged and encouraged me during some of life most challenging times,” Dr. Spencer told Making Headline News during an interview in mid-February.

As for his soon-to-be released book, Dr. Spencer doesn’t shy away from the notion that while this project will be accompanied by more encouragement, he also felt compelled to explain in detail why various forms of adversity — or turbulence, if you will — had to find its way to our lives.


DR. ALANDRUS P. SPENCER’S NEW BOOK COMING 12.15.18

“The single, most underlying reason I choose to release this book is because we need to recognize that we have the unique ability on the inside to encourage ourselves and others, just as David encouraged himself in the Lord,” Dr. Spencer, the Senior Pastor of Touching Lives Ministries, Inc. in Blytheville, told MHN this week.

As Dr. Spencer specifically acknowledged, it didn’t take him very long to catch the vision to compose his second book. In fact, he said that God had strategically given him the assignment to assemble Book No. 2 immediately after he made his authorship debut.

“God gave me the vision to write this book immediately after I released the first book,” Dr. Spencer recalled. “He also explained to me that this book would be a part of a three-book series. My first book, Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment was released in late 2017, so I will have one more to write in the sequel.”

STANDING OVATION — Dr. Spencer’s first book, Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment, is a spiritually-driven written document that has been effectively anointed an award-winner.

 

How’s that for the Holy Trinity (the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost).

“God has always given me a heart to encourage others,” said Dr. Spencer, explaining the purpose for his upcoming book. “In fact, it’s my call and purpose.”

Add to the fact that he’s greatly empowered to customarily encourage the hearts of God’s people from behind a sacred desk, and it’s no wonder that such a fruit of the spirit essentially has become a lifestyle, of sorts, for this seasoned clergyman.

“It’s hard for me to pass someone up that having a bad day,” Dr. Spencer said. “I always feel I have a word of encouragement to help them overcome.”

That, after all, practically sums up why second book makes all of the sense in the world, not to mention explains why weeks before its release, Dr. Spencer’s “Encouraging Moment: The Turbulence Was Necessary” is already attracting favorable feedback.

“The feedback has been tremendous and people have expressed the high demand for me to give them more,” Dr. Spencer said. “Some have said it is the daily dose of encouragement that gets them through their day.”

IN THAT ORDER — “God gave me the vision to write this book immediately after I released the first book,” Dr. Spencer recalled. “He also explained to me that this book would be a part of a three-book series. My first book, Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment was released in late 2017, so I will have one more to write in the sequel.”

As for Dr. Spencer, his forthcoming book could very well be the prelude to emerging as another award-winning piece.

So stay tuned.

“I am planning to write the last book in this series, and I am writing alongside my beautiful wife a children’s book,” Dr. Spencer said.

Making plans to add to his illustrious resume that already includes “extraordinary author.”

Arkansas author Dr. Alandrus P. Spencer named National TAP Author of the Year

Dr. Alandrus P. Spencer isn’t just a Pastor, who often preaches to his congregation about enjoying the fruits of its labor.

Much to his delight, he’s steadfastly savoring his.

His latest installment of fruit came courtesy of a much-anticipated milestone, one by which he had diligently sought for the past six months.

A native of Chicago and the Senior Pastor of Touching Lives Ministry, Inc., Dr. Spencer was named National TAP Awards Author Of The Year during Saturday night’s second annual ceremony from Jonesboro, Arkansas.

ONE SHINING MOMENT — A native of Chicago and the Senior Pastor of Touching Lives Ministry, Inc., Dr. Alandrus P. Spencer was named National TAP Awards Author Of The Year during Saturday night’s second annual ceremony from Jonesboro, Arkansas. Pictured with Dr. Spencer is wife, Veronica.

 

Dr. Spencer’s latest honor comes a little more than a year after the release of his first book entitled, Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment, a spiritually-driven written document that has been effectively anointed an award-winner.

An event that was established by Jonesboro-area public speaker and award-winning author Terrell Jenkins, the National TAP Awards are designed to acknowledge individuals in a variety of categories for their hard work and valiant contributions to the community.

Fellow author Tyneisha Collins of Osceola, Arkansas was named the National TAP Author Of The Year during last year’s inaugural ceremony.

An event that was established by Jonesboro-area public speaker and award-winning author Terrell Jenkins, the National TAP Awards are designed to acknowledge individuals in a variety of categories for their hard work and valiant contributions to the community.

For Dr. Spencer, he said being named National TAP Awards Author Of The Year is a testament of his overall body of work as a relatively newcomer to the authorship industry.

“The feeling was one of shock and a very humbling experience, because I knew I was listed in a category that had great authors who have written some very good books,” said Dr. Spencer, who learned of his nomination for the award back in mid-May.

A spiritually gut-checking and life-enhancing written document that is comprised of 90 pages, Dr. Spencer’s Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment officially hit the market on September 20, 2017, approximately two years after God had revealed to him the vision to write it.

All things considered, his first book has since been nothing short of amazing.

“I leaped on the inside,” Dr. Spencer recalled the moment his name was announced that he was named TAP’s latest Author Of The Year. “Because somehow deep on the inside of me, I knew I stood a good chance. I put the work in alongside of my words, because that’s what faith does.”

Never mind the mixed reactions that had ultimately surfaced amid the release of Dr. Spencer’s book.

WINNER’S CIRCLE — Dr. Spencer’s latest honor comes a little more than a year after the release of his first book entitled, Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment, a spiritually-driven written document that has been effectively anointed an award-winner.

At the end of the real day, this Christian-based preacher-turned-author knows full well there are all sorts of perks that come with serving and being spokesperson for Christ.

“Authors are different and unique and, while I had some to criticize my simplicity in my writing style, I knew that the world is in need of encouragement in its simple form,” Dr. Spencer said. “I love to encourage folks, and I think (because of this award), I am on the right track.”

Amongst those who have helped keep Dr. Spencer on the right track — both in the natural and spirit — is Veronica Spencer, his lifelong companion of 13-plus years.

AND THEN THERE WAS ONE — At the end of the real day, this Christian-based preacher-turned-author knows full well as that there are all sorts of perks that come with serving and being spokesperson for Christ.

“The special thing about my wife is she knows deep inside (my sentiments) before I say anything about how I arrived at that position,” said Dr. Spencer, whose second book (Encouraging Moment: The Turbulence Was Necessary) will be released in the coming weeks. “She is amazingly intelligent and blissfully beautiful and, while it may not be religiously correct to say this, I don’t care. She is my boo and babe.

“To all of my supporters and my manager (Latonya Sanders), I say thank you,” continued Dr. Spencer, who was raised in nearby Blytheville but resides in Jonesboro. “You all know I could not have pulled this off without you and this is simply a win for the team.”

And not just live and savor her best life but, most importantly, she’s committed to helping others follow suit.

MAJOR CAREER MILESTONE — In May 2018, Rhodes witnessed the much-anticipated release of her first book entitled, “The Nurse Echelon: A Victorious Nurse Anthology.”

For Rhodes, who currently resides in Tampa, her well-publicized track record as an RN has been nothing short of remarkable.

That’s because aside from customarily caring for and tending to those who are in dire need of medical help, Rhodes can be appropriately deemed a woman of many hats, considering she is a gifted author and public speaker.

In May 2018, Rhodes witnessed the much-anticipated release of her first book entitled, “The Nurse Echelon: A Victorious Nurse Anthology.”

Comprised of 220 pages, Rhodes’ “The Nurse Echelon: A Victorious Nurse Anthology” is centered mostly on the spiritually-enhancing subject that is victory, most notably how victory has been commonly defined as what she describes as the overcoming of an enemy or antagonist.

“In life, many of us have had to triumph over trials and tribulations to meet a particular goal in life,” said a spokesperson for Rhodes recently-released book at Amazon.com. “Those who do not allow hardships to defeat them have been known as overcomers. When it comes to becoming a nurse or enduring a nursing career, it is known that the schooling is rigorous, the work is tough, the shifts are long and there are some nights that we cannot sleep due to thinking about the shift before. This anthology was created to inspire women, nurses and future nurses to not give up when hard times come. You see, after the rain comes the sunshine.”

A pretty empowering synopsis of a scintillating written document that will be on display when Rhodes hosts her fourth book signing, this time on Saturday, October 20 at a Tampa-area Barnes And Noble.

“We’ll also be launching my 2nd Annual Nurses Book Drop, (during which) I (introduce) 10 nurses as authors,” Rhodes said. “Last year’s event was a huge success.”

A coaching business that went into full operations in November 2016, Rhodes emphasized, among other things, that her sustained success has come to fruition, courtesy of her fervent desire to esteem and inspire others daily.

“Having stayed the course and achieved my own dreams, I find joy in helping others attain theirs as well.” — Michelle Greene Rhodes


A business venture that mostly accommodates women ranging in ages 28 to 48, Rhodes has been afforded the golden opportunity to put her work-related gifts on display in a variety of places, even as far as in the Bahamas.

Interestingly, in May 2019, she will be empowering women in Paris, France along with internationally-acclaimed speaker, Cheryl Wood.

“Having stayed the course and achieved my own dreams, I find joy in helping others attain theirs as well,” Rhodes said. 

Now we know why she’s fully aware of the purpose for which God has created her.

Mid-South Corporate America professional Tonia Wynette relishing her vision as a Life Coach/Motivational Speaker

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES TONIA WYNETTE 


We who are strong must be considerate of those who are sensitive about things like this. We must not just please ourselves. (Romans 15:1 NLT)


Just recently, on a Friday morning just after 10 a. m. CST in the third week of September, Tonia Wynette had just arrived to work and was in the process of getting settled in.

Just as she was about to begin her day, she suddenly began to hear from God unlike never before.

For what it’s worth, this accomplished and resourceful Corporate America professional had no choice but to pause and lend her ear to that about which was directed toward her.

DESTINY STEPS UNFOLDING — A native of Piperton — a rural town that is housed in Fayette County, Tennessee and is comprised of roughly 1,445 residents, according to the latest U. S, census — Tonia Wynette announced recently her strategic plans to carry out her long-awaited vision as a Life Coach/Motivational Speaker.

“With obstacles comes progress,” a dear friend told Wynette during a phone conversation as she tuned in with pure wonderment.

And just like that, Wynette essentially was introduced to the purpose for which God created, was officially introduced to a lofty, God-mandated assignment she sensed would ultimately come to fruition at some point in time.

As it turned out, that point in time is now.

“I’ve always been a nurturer…a bit selfless. I love making others feel good,” Wynette told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “It breaks my heart when I hear people talk down on themselves. If I see sadness in your eyes, I feel obligated to help you to see that there’s something to be grateful for, something to smile about.”

It is due in large part to Wynette’s bend-but-don’t-break faith, coupled with her fervent desire to esteem others highly than herself, that she is thoroughly convinced she’s destined to tackle and embrace yet another awe-inspiring venture at this stage in her life.  

A native of Piperton who grew up as a P. K. (widely known as a Preacher’s Kid) — a rural town that is housed in Fayette County, Tennessee and is comprised of roughly 1,445 residents, according to the latest U. S, census — Wynette announced recently her strategic plans to carry out her long-awaited vision as a Life Coach/Motivational Speaker.

For Wynette, 39, it is an endeavor that essentially had been in the works for some time. Now she’s persuaded the time has come to exercise her faith because, after all, faith without works is dead.

FAITH ON TRIAL — For Wynette, 39, it is an endeavor that essentially had been in the works for some time. Now she’s persuaded the time has come to exercise her faith because, after all, faith without works is dead.

“(I aspire to) help uplift and build others, to create an atmosphere where you can come and be yourself. “(I want to) to help you become comfortable with being who you are, to offer a safe place to show your vulnerabilities, and to do all within my power to help rid you of all of the hurt, pain, resentment, uncertainty, low self-esteem, etc., that holds you back and keeps you from being the person God intended you to be.” — Tonia Wynette 


If anyone can greatly attest to all sorts of spiritual roadblocks, Wynette undoubtedly can. In fact, given the awesome assignment to which she has been introduced, she doesn’t seem to mind sharing before the world her assortment of past hurdles and obstacles, these seemingly discomforting occurrences that have molded and developed and positioned her to possess the best that God had in store from her from the outset.

SHE’S STILL STANDING — It is due in large part to Wynette’s bend-but-don’t-break faith, coupled with her fervent desire to esteem others highly than herself, that she is thoroughly convinced she’s destined to tackle and embrace yet another awe-inspiring venture at this stage in her life.

“Being a person who’s experienced physical, emotional, verbal and financial abuse, a person who was once shunned for being who I truly am — that (actually) was hurt, anger, and resentment fueled me — but after much prayer and support from those closest to me, love, peace, and forgiveness has sustained me,” Wynette said. “I’ve been encouraging and building individuals that I see or feel are in need of it from as early as high school. Professionally, I’m just starting.”

What better time to start than now, especially considering she’s thoroughly convinced that it was God Who was working diligently behind the scenes on her behalf all along?

“This is something God has put on my heart and in my heart, but if I must give credit to any human being, it’d have to be my father, Pastor Tommie L. Watkins,” Wynette said. “He is the most selfless person I know. He’s spent his years, from as early as I remember, leading, helping, encouraging, praying for and building others up.”

Interestingly and to her credit, Wynette seemed destined not only walk in the footsteps of her father but, most importantly, to help advance the kingdom with God, her Helper, leading the way.

“There are people going to their graves everyday with gifts that have yet to be utilized, hearts filled with love that they were too afraid to give,” Wynette said. “There are hurt people, broken people, depressed people, people who can’t and don’t realize their worth simply because of abuse, depression, and low self-esteem. This shouldn’t be.

THE PROVERBS 31 FACTOR — Interestingly and to her credit, Wynette seemed destined not only walk in the footsteps of her father but, most importantly, to help advance the kingdom with God, her Helper, leading the way.

“God has a purpose for your life,” Wynette continued. “Gifts created just for you. I want people to see it. There are no nobodies on this earth. God created everybody to be somebody special. I just want to be one of the tools He uses to get that message across for as far as He allows my voice and physical presence to reach.”

And just like that, she’s effectively embracing the purpose for which God created, effectively embracing a lofty, God-mandated assignment she sensed would ultimately come to fruition at some point in time.

As it turned out, that point in time is now.

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES SABRINA DENNARD 


Sabrina Dennard isn’t just a businesswoman whose primary objective includes, among other things, to have a national impact.

Rather, amongst her notable objectives to have more of an international presence.

An internationally-acclaimed entrepreneur in her own right, Dennard is the Founder and chief executive officer of Dennard Agency Empowerment Group, LLC, a globally-oriented venture whereby she is the afforded the luxury of functioning primarily as an International Empowerment Speaker, Author, Philanthropist, and a Spoken Word Artist.

“God gave me everything within to speak and create life into my business and my clients,” Dennard, 46, during a weekend interview with Making Headline News, said, explaining what she loves mostly about her business  venture.

MAKING GLOBAL NOISE — An internationally-acclaimed entrepreneur in her own right, Sabrina Dennard is the Founder and chief executive officer of Dennard Agency Empowerment Group, LLC, a globally-oriented venture whereby she is the afforded the luxury of functioning primarily as an International Empowerment Speaker, Author, Philanthropist, and a Spoken Word Artist.

What is especially intriguing is that Dennard, a native of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and a U.S. Army Veteran Staff Sergeant, Florida, oversees the day-to-day operations of her business outside of the United States, most notably from Baghdad, Iraq, where she’s resided for the past two years.

That, after all, is amongst the reasons Dennard is thoroughly committed to having a global impact as a progressive and thriving businesswoman.

“(My business is centered on) creating an outlet to true freedom for women, men children of all nations regardless of race, color, creed, faith, or religion through words and thought transformation,” Dennard said. “There are so many supposed ways out there to obtaining desires, dreams, and goals, but none of them are truly telling the secret to success. They get us to a point and that’s it. I actually have the proven method to achieving it all.”

IMPRESSIVE INDEED — What is especially intriguing is that Dennard, a native of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and a U.S. Army Veteran Staff Sergeant, Florida, oversees the day-to-day operations of her business outside of the United States, most notably from Baghdad, Iraq, where she’s resided for the past two years.

For Dennard, she doesn’t shy away from the notion that such a proven method has surfaced with a cost.

“Continued failure, hurt, pain, my desire to see my parents’ and children’s dreams come true was and still is my drive,” said Dennard, explaining how her competitive drive in life has fueled her desire to jumpstart her endeavor. “To see so many nations in turmoil because of limited access to reach and achieve their dreams is my drive. My passion for people is my constant drive.”

As for her personal mission for functioning in the God-mandated calling, Dennard emphasized that what it all boils down to is achieving her lifelong dreams, coupled with her fervent ambition that is centered on continuing to be what she calls “an iconic light to open not only my eyes to see the invisible power, but others as well,” she says without hesitation.

GOD’S PLAN — As for her personal mission for functioning the God-mandated calling, Dennard emphasized that what it all boils down to is achieving her lifelong dreams, coupled with her fervent ambition that is centered on continuing to be what she calls “an iconic light to open not only my eyes to see the invisible power, but others as well,” she says without hesitation.

An endeavor that caters mostly to individuals ranging in ages five years to  90 — “and up,” she said — Dennard’s empowerment group has allowed her to put her immeasurable leadership skills on display in a variety of establishments around the global, most notably in Iraq, where she’s presently under contract, which has enabled her to be what she deems a “constant encouragement” to the U.S. military soldiers during their deployments to Iraq, Afghanistan, Poland, Kuwait.

“I have been requested to travel to London,” said Dennard, alluding to her immeasurable body of work and contributions as a military veteran. “I have worked and still work with many people from many backgrounds. Never a dull moment and I love it.”

As for the sustained success through her business venture, Dennard would be remiss if she did not give credit to her late father, Artist Ernest Dennard Sr., who was once commissioned by former President Jimmy Carter to embellish the walls of The Rural Georgia Telephone Museum with a mural of his art in Plains, Georgia.  Also, her mother, Etheron Dennard, as well as her grandmother, Theron Tolbert-Jones, has had massive impacts on helping her dreams to become a reality.

A globally-acclaimed reality, that is.

“They always believed I would do great things in this world,” Dennard said of those who make up her solid support system. “I would say the people in power positions I admire are Condoleezza Rice, Francis Berwick, Ana Botin, Oprah Winfrey, Beyonce Carter, Warren Buffett, Harriet Tubman, Michelle and Barack Obama.”

UK BOUND? “I have been requested to travel to London,” said Dennard, alluding to her immeasurable body of work and contributions as a military veteran. “I have worked and still work with many people from many backgrounds. Never a dull moment and I love it.”

Armed with more than a decade of experience in this ever-so-competitive empowerment industry, Dennard has grasped a thorough concept of why God has strategically chosen her to empower the massive for such a time as now.

“That is the reason we are all here,” said Dennard, adding that she’s presently working on producing a short film (called “Evening Street”) for her awe-inspiring book entitled, “Extra, Extra Read All About It: Evening Street, The Beginning.”

Dennard is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Extra, Extra Read All About It: Evening Street, The Beginning.”

“The universe is one tied to multiverses…a tree in which we all are branches, extending in different directions, but we all represent the beauty of this tree in various faiths, beliefs, and opinions. We can and should embrace and empower each other.”

Something by which she’s executes daily.

All around the globe.

Florida author Janice Harris overcomes Sarcoma Cancer, writes an emotionally life-changing book

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES JANICE HARRIS 


During Janice Harris’ undergraduate days at the University of South Florida in Tampa, she strongly considered — and studied — journalism, although she had ultimately earned a Bachelor of Arts in Speech Communication.

Given the immeasurable strides she’s made as a writer in recent years, it’s safe to assume that Harris is, in some aspects, is a journalist in her own right.

PRAYER ANSWERED — Even while weathering the dreaded storm that is cancer, Floridian Janice Harris had become engaged in a rather intriguing dialogue with her Creator, one that eventually gave way to her becoming the mastermind behind the life-changing book entitled, “Through the Fire: A Miraculous Journey.”

That’s because Harris — even while pressing and navigating her way through arguably the darkest hours of her life — had steadfastly obeyed the voice of God by composing a book that is presently having a massive kingdom impact.

“I was recuperating from Sarcoma cancer, after having gone through chemo, two types of radiation, and a major surgery to remove the tumor,” an emotional Harris told Making Headline News this week.

Even while weathering the dreaded storm that is cancer, Harris had become engaged in a rather intriguing dialogue with her Creator, one that eventually gave way to her becoming the mastermind behind the life-changing book entitled, “Through the Fire: A Miraculous Journey.”

PURCHASE JANICE HARRIS’ BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Through-Fire-Miraculous-Janice-Harris-ebook/dp/B07G8N83L7

A book that is comprised of 196 pages, Harris’ “Through the Fire: A Miraculous Journey” was officially released earlier this month and, much to her delight, has already generated an assortment of five-star reviews at Amazon.com.

Harris’ “Through the Fire: A Miraculous Journey” was officially released earlier this month and, much to her delight, has already generated an assortment of five-star reviews at Amazon.com. The hard copy of Harris’ book debuted February 24. The book recently became available on Kindle, a version that is comprised of 196 pages. 

PURCHASE JANICE HARRIS’ BOOK HERE: 

A retiree of the State of Florida who is a seasoned minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Harris’ “Through the Fire: A Miraculous Journey” is highlighted large by her telling her story of what she dubs as a “survival,” or the miracle she had ultimately received.

Interestingly, she then gives inspiration to anyone dealing with what she appropriately describes as life’s most difficult trials and circumstances. In addition, Harris takes her reading audience through her turbulent journey that is comprised of an array of emotions and struggles, one that shows how she was determined to depend on her faith in God to bring her through it.

WOMAN THOU ART LOOSE — Fortunately for Harris, a native of Jacksonville, even as she battled her dreaded disease, it seemed that God was already moving on her behalf, thus preparing for her a way of escape.

“Many people give up while facing tough situations,” said a spokesperson for Harris’ book at Amazon.com. “Others who struggle to find answers as to why they are going through become bitter and angry at God and at life itself. In this story, you will be inspired to hold on despite what you are going through.”

Fortunately for Harris, a native of Leesburg, Florida, even as she battled her dreaded disease, it seemed that God was already moving on her behalf, thus preparing for her a way of escape.

“I heard in my spirit to write my experience down in a book, and then I saw a quick picture flash before my face of what the cover should look like and the title,” said Harris, explaining the vision that was revealed to her while battling cancer. “I did not keep pictures or notes during my bout with cancer, so I had to remember everything I went through. Because it was a crucial journey, I could remember everything vividly.”

THE GALATIANS 6:9 FACTOR — A retiree of the State of Florida who is a seasoned minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Harris’ “Through the Fire: A Miraculous Journey” is highlighted large by her telling her story of what she dubs as a “survival,” or the miracle she had ultimately received.

A book she essentially began composing sometime in 2012, Harris had finally finished her initial written document in February of this year.

“It is a short book, but I tried to put as many details as I could,” Harris said.

To her credit, she did just that, considering the feedback since her book’s ceremonious release have been overwhelmingly favorable.

“I have received good feedback mainly from family and friends who have read the book thus far,” Harris said. “Due to a local move and other projects going on around the time that I published my book until now, I have not done any major promotion. The few written reviews on Amazon thus far are good. I am just getting around to doing a Kindle e-book this week, and expect more traffic on the book. I am also still hoping to do a book signing in the near future, even though my book has been out since late February.”

Despite a recent relocation and other things about which Harris has had to address, what matters at this point is that her new book is finally where it belongs: on the market.

Which, as a result, means its best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

“I have always believed God has a great purpose and plan for my life,” said Harris, adding that other books are forthcoming, most notably one on poetry in memory of her mother, who passed away in 2011 at the age of 88. “I have always been a leader and an encourager. I love to help and encourage others. I do so daily whether it is simply on my Facebook page, at church from the pulpit, in the store, or anywhere else that I go. I am a witness for Jesus Christ and it is definitely a desire given by my Creator. I feel that I have also been given the gift to write, and I want to do more of that.”

While Harris labels her new book as “just a portion of my story,” amongst the things about which she deems gratifying is that God strategically handpicked her to produce such a remarkably brilliant project for such a time as now.

IT IS FINISHED — A book she essentially began composing sometime in 2012, Harris had finally finished her initial written document in February of this year.

“When I found a small bump on my right femur around the hamstring area in December 2011, I had no idea what that would lead to,” Harris said.

What’s especially astounding about that seemingly discouraging day in December 2011 was that God all along had a miraculously blessing with her name on it.

A blessing that came wrapped up in a book that is having a massive kingdom impact.
