“The power of telling your story is one of the best ways to inspire and motivate others to consider change,” Perlie told Making Headline News during a weekend interview. “I believe collaboration and partnership symbolize the strength women possess.

A book that made its official debut on November 6, 2018, Perlie’s “Born Again Daughters Of Zion: Our Transformational Stories of Revelation Resilience and Recovery” recalls, among other things, how when trials, temptation, and death strike, it can be difficult for most to find comfort or peace amidst the turmoil and the whirlwind of emotions it brings, as mentioned in a detailed breakdown of this book at Amazon.com.

Still, each tragedy, Perlie acknowledges, is an opportunity for an amazing story that can encourage others who are experiencing their own devastation.

“Author LaVerne Perlie recognized the impact of sharing life’s heartbreaks and the healing power of prayer,” said an Amazon spokesperson for Perlie’s ‘Born Again Daughters Of Zion: Our Transformational Stories of Revelation Resilience and Recovery.’

ON ONE ACCORD — A book that is comprised of 136 pages in length, Perlie’s “Born Again Daughters Of Zion: Our Transformational Stories of Revelation Resilience and Recovery” a is a collaborative written work that is includes contributions by authors Linda Caldwell Boykin, Carla McCray, Arvinese Reid, Jackqueline Easley, Michelle Baylor, Paula Grange, and Tawanda Holmes.

“In her first anthology, Born Again Daughters of Zion, she has compiled the stories of eight dynamic women of God who, in times of despair, experienced healing, transformation, and triumph. The words within the pages of this book are a testament to how trials connect human spirits, no matter how unique the circumstances, and that we do not have to suffer alone.”

A book that took a little more than a year to assemble, Perlie emphasized, among other things, the divine message she and her authorship team are sending to their audience is rather direct and straight to the point.

That is, “(all of us must) take authority over our lives, close the door of our past, open the door to our future, and march right into our destiny,” she said. “You are no longer an outcast. Readers should experience feelings of strength, well- being, and motivation to move forward.”

Interestingly, Perlie is fully persuaded that the assortment of stories that make up her latest book are, by all accounts, “touching and real,” a trend she said will likely cause readers to shed a few tears.


SEASON OF THE REBIRTH 

Interestingly, Perlie is fully persuaded that the assortment of stories that make up her latest book are, by all accounts, “touching and real,” a trend she said will likely cause readers to shed a few tears.

“The readers will feel as if they have met the authors of the chapters personally,” Perlie said. “At the end of a story, there is charge to every reader, which really is affirmations. Readers are encouraged to speak these affirmations over their lives daily and believe what they are saying.”

Perlie’s “Born Again Daughters Of Zion: Our Transformational Stories of Revelation Resilience and Recovery” is just a glimpse of the glory is revealing in her through her immeasurable works as an author.

That’s because Perlie was apart of the collaborative book entitled, “Soul Talk 2,” another anthology project that was released in 2018, which is highlighted by her subject, “Trust God Through The Process.”

Perlie’s “Born Again Daughters Of Zion: Our Transformational Stories of Revelation Resilience and Recovery” is just a glimpse of the glory is revealing in her through her immeasurable works as an author.

As for her latest work, the feedback has been mostly favorable, Perlie said.


“Since writing the book, many people have mentioned how this book has open their eyes to pursue their purpose in life and not to allow distractions or challenges hinder them from achieving positive outcomes,” Perlie said. “I’ve been asked to mentor, coach, teach, and speak to women ages 15 to 79.”


As Perlie’s book becomes more of a global fixture, the more golden opportunities arise for her to share of his brilliant gifts as an author.

Perlie is current on hand for the Global United Fellowship The Gathering 2019 in Nassau, Bahamas,  an event that runs through July 12 at the Atlantis Hotel and Conference Center.

She will then attend the Women In Pursuit Retreat from August 16-17, at the Bon Secours retreat Center in Marriottsville, Maryland.

“Since releasing this book I’ve been invited to speak in Harrisburg and York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, (Washington) D.C., and churches throughout  Baltimore,” Perlie said.

IT’S ALL GOOD — As for her latest work, the feedback has been mostly favorable, Perlie said.

Without questions, she’s overwhelmingly grateful of the notion that God is steadily allowing her gifts to make room for her.

Never mind that slew of challenges that often arose to challenge her faith.

At the end of the real day, God was there all the time.

“If you desire to pursue your dream, you must understand that challenges are a part of the process to achieve the goal,” Perlie said. “How you think and respond to that challenge or barrier determines your fate. If your mind is set on pursuit, I encourage you to pursue everything without hindrance.”

Spoken like a true champion for Christ.

Tennessee author Reverend Dr. Sonja Deloatch addresses colleagues, millennials in ‘Soulful Prayers’


Give praise to the LORD, proclaim His name; make known among the nations what He has done. (Psalm 105:1 NIV)


CALL TO DISCIPLESHIP 

DIVINE CONNECTION — As Reverend Dr. Sonja Deloatch explained, that she had the backing of a solid supporting that aided her mightily with regards to putting her authorship gifts on display also fueled her desire to contribute to Cheryl Polote-Williamson’s “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”

DALLAS — No one has to pump Reverend Dr. Sonja Deloatch up to strike up a conversation about all of the hoopla surrounding the globally-acclaimed, bestselling winning written work that is “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”

I am excited about my collaboration with Cheryl Polote-Williamson in our new book #SoulfulPrayers,” Dr. Deloatch wrote in a recent social post before her 5,000 Facebook followers. “It’s ALMOST TIME! #SoulfulPrayers is an essential book for every believer––no matter where you are in your relationship with Him.”
And just like, Dr. Deloatch issued an essential reminder to the masses about an awe-inspiring, spiritually-enhancing book that is steadily have a massive in the Body of Christ — this amid less than a week removed from his much-anticipated released.
“It has been a long time; however, I was pressing the idea of writing, because I struggle that no one wanted to hear what I have to say,” said Deloatch, recalling the developments that preceded her quest to contribute to Soulful Prayers. “However, when I lost my husband, my heart just sunk.  Doing that course, I would see post of others who lost their husbands and I heard it clear this title: “A Conversation With God’ that did not include me.”

A book that was officially launched during a nationally-acclaimed ceremony here last weekend, “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God” is forwarded by award-winning and bestselling author/businesswoman Cheryl Polote-Williamson.

As Dr. Deloatch explained during an interview this week with Making Headline News, that she had the fervent backing of a solid supporting cast that aided her mightily with regards to putting her authorship gifts on display also fueled her desire to contribute to Polote-Williamson’s ‘Soulful Prayers.”

“(For one, I had) someone who was doing the editing,” Dr. Deloatch said. “That took a lot of stress off of me. “Learning how stop and proof read a document has always been hard for me. However, I had to learn that much of what I was facing…the additional voices in my head of trying to get it so right that I could not cut it off.”

Once Dr. Deloatch had commenced to exercising her faith through her gifts as a Christian-based writer, God — with His usual reliable Self — was there to provide to increase.


SEASON OF THE REBIRTH 

As Dr. Deloatch explained, that she had the backing of a solid supporting cast that aided her mightily with regards to putting her authorship gifts on display also fueled her desire to contribute to Polote-Williamson’s ‘Soulful Prayers.”

How else to explain why it had taken this Murfreesboro, Tennessee-based writer somewhere in the neighborhood of about 15 minutes to compose her portion of a book that figures to have a global impact much sooner than later?

“Many people would say to me, you always seem to have it together,” said Dr. Deloatch, explaining the divine message she’s sending to her reading audience through her selected prayer. “I learned early as a child how to mask my emotions…and was told when I would say things, I was too loud, too strong-minded…a big personality.”

More than anything, Dr. Deloatch acknowledged, the prayer to which God assigned her to assemble for Soulful Prayers, is a spiritual road map, of sorts, for her colleagues.

Once Dr. Deloatch commenced to exercising her faith through her gifts as a Christian-based writer, God — His usual reliable Self — was there to plant to increase.

A native of Nashville, Dr. Deloatch is the Senior Pastor of Winters Chapel African Methodist Episcopal in Lebanon, Tennessee.


“I believe this prayer is looking at our clergy persons,” Dr. Deloatch explained. “I have been in the AME Church all my life, and I trusted that whatever my Pastor said was the truth. He appeared to me to be a strong man, had a direct line to God and whatever I needed, he would get my message to God. However, now that I am a Pastor, I have my own relationship with Jesus, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.”


“I know now that I am not perfect and my job is to introduce others to Who God is,” Dr. Deloatch said. “For clergy (men and women), we need to be real with God and not some superficial mask, preaching the Gospel. That we are human and we bring the word to all those who want to hear it, we (also) are servants and we suffer just like Jesus, Who wept for the lost. He wept for us and we are caring a burden of life and pain like others.”

And because Dr. Deloatch doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s completely sold out to God Almighty for the rest of her days on this side of heaven, rest assured that as it pertains to possessing and retaining a solid prayer life, she’s destined to routinely enlighten the world of just how mandatory talking to God is, especially during these perilous times.

For what it’s worth, Dr. Deloatch emphasized that the message that she and her colleagues in the Body of Christ preaches to God’s people is especially vital for today’s youths.

“The young people — these millennials — want to see the authentic self of us,” said Dr. Deloatch, adding that the feedback since the release of “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God” have been overwhelmingly favorable. “(This book) has provided a platform to start a conversation with God. It has brought me to place of deeper understanding about a more personal relationship with Christ Jesus.”

An “understanding” she’s especially destined to pass along and put on display not just before those in the Body of Christ, but for those who aspire to establish a wholesome, more meaningful relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Is longtime Dallas/Fort Worth businesswoman Kristen J. Price the real estate industry’s best kept secret?


Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. (Philippians 4:6 KJV) 


DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS 

DESTINY STEPS — A native of Dallas, Kristen J. Price, 52, is owner and chief executive officer of Hylton Homes Realty, LLC.

DALLAS — Earlier this week, Texas businesswoman Kristen J. Price wasted little time offering a thorough assessment of her drive in her selected line of work.

She was only keeping it 100.
“Let’s face it,” Price explained during an interview with Making Headline News. “There’s an increasing number of individuals that have the same ethnic makeup and background as myself, who have the thought in their minds that they will never be able to own their own home. I’m here to let them know differently. If they have the desire, tenacity and dream to give it a try, I am here to make that dream a reality with my professional knowledge and guidance in the real estate industry.
“You too can own your own home,” Price continued. “Not just one, but two, three, or however many your heart desires.”

To grasp a thorough concept of why Price speaks with such passion and splendor when assessing the joy of functioning mightily in her element, look no further than the immeasurable strides she’s made as one of Texas’ most resourceful and efficient real estate brokers.

Interestingly, with Price’s expertise and knowledge of the real estate industry, she will steadfastly work tirelessly on her clients’ behalf, all the while making their next home-buying or home-selling experience a pleasant and successful one.


“Therefore, whether you are considering selling a home, looking for a new build or an existing home or in the preliminary stages of a Dallas area real estate search, you have found the best in professional service,” said a spokesperson for Price’s Hylton Homes Realty.


A 1985 graduate of Dallas’ Wilmer-Hutchins High, Price holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration from the University of North Texas in nearby Denton.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — A 1985 graduate of Dallas’ Wilmer-Hutchins High, Price holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration from the University of North Texas in nearby Denton. Consequently, she advanced her education when she earned a Master of Science Degree in Human Relations and Business in 2000 from Amberton University in nearby Garland.

Consequently, she advanced her education when she earned a Master of Science Degree in Human Relations and Business in 2000 from Amberton University in nearby Garland.

As for her immeasurable experience in the ever-so-competitive real estate industry, Price’s tenure spans some 15 years, five of which she served as a sales agent and 10 years as an independent broker.

She is scheduled to teach what is known as the Military Relocation Professional Class on July 17 at the MetroTex Association of Realtors.

Also, Price will conduct a live recording with other media analysts at her local church, Antioch Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church on July 8 at 6:00 p.m. CST.

Given the immense strides she made over the course of the past decade-and-a-half, it’s safe to say that even in the wake of her sustained success, Price’s best and brightest days as a real estate broker are well ahead of her.

This, to her credit, essentially means that Price hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down any time soon, considering she’s walking diligently in her divine purpose.


“Service is my personal mission,” Price said. “I love offering my professional service, expertise, and knowledge of real estate to the consumers. I work for and with my clients. Notice I said ‘for them’ first. I put all of my clients’ interests before my very own. It’s not about me, but all about them and assisting them with accomplishing that one goal of home ownership.”


When asked who were amongst those who inspired her to delve off into such a rewarding and commendable industry, Price deems it essential to customarily recall a somewhat intriguing memory.

“A realtor by the name of Candy Hudson — who represented my husband at the time — and me in the sale of our first home,” Price explained. “She stated to me one day after a meeting with us, ‘Kristen, have you ever thought about doing real estate?’ My response was, ‘No.’ She went on to say that, ‘I think that you would be good at it, because you are such a great communicator.’”


GOD-ORDERED STEPS 

To grasp a thorough concept of why Price speaks with such passion and splendor when assessing the joy of functioning mightily in her element, look no further than the immeasurable strides she’s made as one of Texas’ most resourceful and efficient real estate brokers.

And the rest, as they say, was history, particularly with regards to Price appropriately heeding the wise counsel of Hudson.

“There was not much thought given to the conversation until after we had moved into our new home in Mesquite, Texas,” Price said. “The rest is history.”

Here she is today, not only steadily setting herself apart as one of Texas’ most resourceful and efficient real estate brokers but, much to her delight, she routinely goes to great lengths to ensure that her clients’ dreams become realities in the process.

All because, well, she was determined to the trust process of what it takes to become a fixture in one America’s most popular and competitive industries.


DS-TEXAS’ OWN

“Winston Churchill stated that, ‘Success is the ability to go from one failure to another, with no loss of enthusiasm,’ said Price before backing up such an analogy with the familiar Biblical verse that is Philippians 4:6. “Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God.”

All things considered, coupled with the divine calling on her life, that’s just what Price has done — made her requests known unto God.

And left the results to Him.

Look at her today, having emerged as one of Texas’ most resourceful and efficient real estate brokers.

Soulful Prayers author Dr. Eric Holmes reminds the masses that ‘Prayer still works’


These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33 KJV)


POINTING TO THE HEAVENS 

GOD’S FAITH STEPPER — If anyone can greatly attest to how essential prayer is, it’s Dr. Holmes, this devout man of valor, who were amongst more than four dozen authors who made eloquent contributions to the newly-released book entitled, “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”

DALLAS — Every time you turn around, there’s Dr. Eric Holmes, displaying his customary signature smile, all the while encouraging someone’s heart in the process.

He did it once again late Monday night, courtesy of a spirited social media post.

Said Dr. Holmes on his Facebook timeline before his 3,700-plus social media followers: “Prayer still works.”
He got that right.
Not only that, if anyone can greatly attest to this kingdom-enhancing notion, it’s Dr. Holmes, this devout man of valor, who were amongst more than four dozen authors who made eloquent contributions to the newly-released book entitled, “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”

A book that was officially launched during nationally-acclaimed ceremony over the weekend here, “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God” is orchestrated by award-winning and bestselling author/businesswoman Cheryl Polote-Williamson.

For Dr. Holmes, his valiant contributions to a book that has created a national buzz comes in the wake of his already successful authorship success, a trend that’s accompanied by the sustained success of his written work entitled, “The Power of The Seed,” his 2015 released project that has become a fixture throughout Baltimore and the surrounding areas.

As for his latest authorship heroics, Dr. Holmes wasted little time buying into the visionary of the face of “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”


HE’S GOT A SEED IN THE GROUND

FOR STARTERS — For Dr. Holmes, his valiant contributions to a book that has created a national buzz comes in the wake of his already successful authorship success, a trend that’s accompanied by the sustained success of his written work entitled, “The Power of The Seed,” his 2015 released project that has become a fixture throughout Baltimore and the surrounding areas..

“Once (Polote-Williamson’s) vision was shared with me, it connected in my spirit, because I am a prayer warrior,” Dr. Holmes told Making Headline News this week.

Once Dr. Holmes had become spiritually empowered to contribute to a book that figures to garner a continuous massive presence throughout the Body Christ for years to come, he then commenced to executing a strategy to accomplished God’s will.

Interestingly, he needed only a few weeks to make it all come full circle, having assembled his chapter just in time for it to be edited and reviewed by the start of the New Year.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

And just like that, Dr. Holmes had appropriately taken yet another monumental step in the purpose for which he was created, a purpose that, fortunately for him, is a true testament of how he’s been used by God for such pivotal time as now.

Yes, brothas and sistas. Prayer still works.


“It was the timing and season of God,” said Dr. Holmes, a native of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. “And He allowed me to be apart and the experience I went through to be able to share (my prayer).”

To God be the glory.

As expected, the feedback for “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God” has been nothing short of remarkable, a trend that undoubtedly will linger amongst followers of Christ for quite some time.

Not to be outdone, though, Dr. Holmes has announced that other books are forthcoming.

“I have another book coming very soon,” said Dr. Holmes, referring to his written work entitled, ‘My Next Season Is Due Season.’

As for his itinerary, Dr. Holmes has several radio and televisions interviews scheduled, during which he will promote his books and conduct book signings.

To his credit and much to his delight, he announced that he has submitted the essential paperwork to the Enoch Pratt Libraries which, in turn, will enable him to generate book reviews.


AFTER YOU’VE SUFFERED A WHILE…

Dr. Holmes has appropriately taken yet another monumental step in the purpose for which he was created, a purpose that, fortunately for him, is testament of how he’s been used by God for such pivotal time as now.

Not only that, he emphasized he plans to enhance the promoting of his books on various social media platforms, which has given way to his reaping a considerable amount of authorship success.

“It was a divine assignment,” said Dr. Holmes, “and it will reach a nation, and everyone is in need of prayer.”

He got that right.

Once again.

Georgia author Angela Kinnel advancing the kingdom mightily through her work in Soulful Prayers


Pray without ceasing; in everything, give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. (1 Thessalonians 5:17-18)


OH SWEET WONDER 

HOW GREAT THY ART — To grasp a broader concept on why God has strategically allowed Angela Kinnel to thrive and flourish in her element through the ever-so-competitive world of authorship, look no further than the national hoopla surrounding her latest achievement as one of a slew of writers who collectively assembled “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”

DALLAS — Another book, another massive step toward the God-mandated destiny for accomplished author Angela Kinnel.

To grasp a broader concept on why God has strategically allowed Kinnel to thrive and flourish in her element through the ever-so-competitive world of authorship, look no further than the national hoopla surrounding her latest achievement as one of a slew of writers who collectively assembled “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”
A book that was officially released on June 29 here, Kinnel were amongst more than four dozen authors who contributed to a Christian-based written work that was spearheaded by award-winning author/businesswoman Cheryl Polote-Williamson.
“Once Cheryl presented the concept of the book, I knew that I had to be a part of it,” Kinnel told Making Headline News during a weekend interview.

A book that was officially released on June 29 here, Kinnel were amongst more than four dozen authors who contributed to a Christian-based written work that was spearheaded by award-winning author/businesswoman Cheryl Polote-Williamson.

A native of Dawson, Georgia who currently resides in nearby Hampton, Kinnel was responsible for having composed the prayer entitled, “When A Parent Returns To God,” a dialogue with God Almighty that’s centered largely on the transition of a parent.

“It only took me a day to write it, because it was a prayer that I’d prayed to God already after going through my mother’s transition,” Kinnel explained. “Through this book, I’d like for my audience to know that grief is a process. But they don’t have to go through it alone. God is the Only One Who can guide you through your good days as well as your bad days.”

For what it’s worth, Kinnel essentially encourages her reading audience through this newly-produced that even while enduring the loss of parent, God is faithful and just that He’s still able to do “exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,” as the Apostle Paul specifically reminds us, according to Ephesians 3:20.


“You don’t have to figure out how your life is going to go one without your parent,” Kinnel said. “Place all of your trust in God. He has you covered. I want (my reading audience) to know that the pain never goes away, but God restores you to where you can live on and look forward to seeing your loved one again. Yield to Him.”


A devout woman of faith in her own right, Kinnel can greatly attest to the notion that God undoubtedly is using her to advance the kingdom, most notably as a Christian-oriented author.

That’s because Kinnel’s immeasurable authorship resume includes the books:

  • “Identity: Who Do You Think You Are?”  — a project she co-authored with Robert Johnson in 2016, which breakdowns our identity in Christ

  • “Soul Talk Volume 2: Soul-Stirring Stories Of People Who Let Go and Let God”  — a written document she co-authored with Polote-Williamson in 2018. In this book, Kinnel addresses what is known as “Stop Cheering And Get In the Game,” whereby she eloquently discusses how she overcame depression and began to cheer for herself toward, all the while pursing my dreams and,

  • “Rise, Pray & Slay: Strategies To Heal The Land” — a project she co-authored with Linda D. Lee earlier this year. In this book, Kinnel speaks from the subject entitled, “From Fear To Faith,” during which she discusses how she overcame the fear of becoming who God created her to be.


THIS IS HOLY GROUND 

Because of whom she is and because of where God is taking her, Kinnel doesn’t shy away from the notion that her latest written work is synonymous with the purpose for which God has created her.

As for her valiant contributions to “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God,” the feedback since its release has been overwhelmingly favorable, Kinnel said.

“I had a young lady walk up to me at the book launch in tears,” Kinnel recalls. “She told me that she identified with my prayer, because she’d lost her mother back in 2015.  All we could do was hug each other. She also said that it encouraged her to keep trusting God through her pain.”

Because of whom she is and because of where God is taking her, Kinnel doesn’t shy away from the notion that her latest written work is synonymous with the purpose for which God has created her.

“This book has allowed me to minister to the broken-hearted through my personal prayer,” Kinnel said. “I’ve been called to minister to the body of Christ and God has allowed me to do so through books. If what I’ve shared thus far touches at least one soul, then I’ve done what He told me to do.”

REMEMBER MOM — A native of Dawson, Georgia who currently resides in nearby Hampton, Kinnel was responsible for having composed the prayer entitled, “When A Parent Returns To God,” a dialogue with God Almighty that’s centered largely on the transition of a parent.

A few days removed from the ceremonious release of her latest project, plans are currently underway, during which Kinnel will be afforded the golden opportunity to promote “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”

Interestingly, Kinnel announced: “I am in the planning stages right now of writing my first book solo. I hope to release it by Spring 2020.”

In addition, Kinnel will be a guest speaker at the Glambitious Atlanta Entrepreneur Conference on August 24, during which she will be speaking on the subject, “Faith And Work,” as well as offer copies of her books, she said.

Dallas/Fort Worth author Sandi D. Johnson’s ‘Collateral Beauty’ is a thing of beauty


And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. (Habakkuk 2:2 KJV)


GODLY THING OF BEAUTY 

GOD’S PLAN — Sandi D. Johnson’s desire to compose the newly-produced entitled “My Story, My Journey: Collateral Beauty” has come full circle. It is a collaborative written work she assembled with other authors.

LEWISVILLE, Texas — For Sandi D. Johnson, June 5, 2018 essentially changed the overall landscape of her life.

“Last year on June 5, I did a Facebook Live (segment) on collateral beauty,” Johnson told Making Headline News this week. “I was inspired by the movie and how Will Smith’s character became paralyzed by grief and begin to seek out answers. The results were that in life’s toughest, most heart-wrenching situations, there are some lessons and blessings. So, the term collateral beauty has been in my spirit ever since.”
All things considered, such an awe-inspiring sequence is what fueled Johnson’s desire to compose the newly-produced entitled, “My Story, My Journey: Collateral Beauty,” a collaborative written work she assembled with other authors.

BUY SANDI’S BOOK HERE: https://www.sandidjohnson.com/

The book’s official launch will take place on August 3 at Sway’s Room in nearby DeSoto, Texas, during which Johnson will be the keynote speaker.

Also, Johnson announced that a retreat is planned for some time next year and will called, “My Story, My journey: Collateral Beauty Retreat,” during which she will be a presenter.

As Johnson explained, her company EnVision Your Life, L.L.C., also has played an integral part of her quest to write a book that figures to become a fixture during what many have dubbed “perilous times.”

As far as demonstrating faith to compose her newly-assembled written document, Johnson acknowledged that it was, by all accounts, a vision to which God introduced her early this year through “Grace to Recover,” a book she co-authored with Shirley LaTour.

“My company has a proven multi-step process that produces vision boards, which produces results and are in action,” Johnson explained.  “As a result of the EnVision Board Experience, the individual will leave with a visual representation of their vision, futurist mindset, and three concrete goals that will be in motion with the help of a dream keeper relationship. The experiences are done virtually or in person. So on my vision board, the words ‘Put it in writing’ as a personal goal was to author a book.  I cannot motivate others to reach goals and not move on my own.”

To her credit, Johnson has certainly moved mightily, thus exercised her faith in ways unimaginable, particularly with regards to assembling “My Story, My Journey: Collateral Beauty.”

Johnson announced that a retreat is planned for some time next year and will called, “My Story, My journey: Collateral Beauty Retreat,” during which she will be a presenter.

“After experiencing the death of my stepfather, mother, and grandfather in a period of like 16 months, I was able to find some beauty in that situation,” said Johnson, when asked what was the single, most underlying reason she chose to produce her new book. “The heartbreak and grief were purposed to give me the ability to reframe any situation. I want others to know that not only can they survive those hard places, but it is part of their purpose path.”

As far as demonstrating faith to compose her newly-assembled written document, Johnson acknowledged that it was, by all accounts, a vision to which God introduced her early this year through “Grace to Recover,” a book she co-authored with Shirley LaTour.


“This goal was in no way, shape, or form one that was easy to obtain,” Johnson recalled. “You see, I struggled with spelling since childhood, which feeds into the irrational thought pattern that I could not write. As a child, Thursday nights at my house growing up was a struggle due to the Friday spelling test. We would sing, rap, write, and dance to my spelling words only for me to barely pass the test. In college, I would procrastinate when assigned any paper out of this belief that I could not write.”


But God Whom, much to Johnson’s delight, still had a divine purpose for her life, most notably through the competitive world of authorship.

That, of course, meant she had to become accustomed to spelling and writing — and do it efficiently.

“A few years ago, I expressed to my author friend (MeLisa Calhoun Collins) that I could not write,” Johnson said. “I would send her something I had written for her to read. It was at that point, she informed me I would never say that statement again. She has been my editor and can take my sometimes not-so-well-written thought and fix it to make sense. She is my writing dream keeper.”

“This fear almost stopped this project,” said Johnson, who’s currently working on two more anthologies. “As a vision coach, I tell my clients just to leap and that is what I did with a blindfold on. And 14 other women joined me on this journey and shared their stories of finding meaning in either the death of a loved one or divorce. Some were hit with both at the same time.”

And today unlike never before, Johnson has emerged as purpose driven and accomplished author, who’s yet walking fervently in her purpose — with God, her Helper, leading the way.

Talk about a massive thing of beauty.

“This fear almost stopped this project,” said Johnson, who’s currently working on two more anthologies. “As a vision coach, I tell my clients just to leap and that is what I did with a blindfold on. And 14 other women joined me on this journey and shared their stories of finding meaning in either the death of a loved one or divorce. Some were hit with both at the same time.”

For Johnson, it all goes back to June 5 of last year.

As Johnson explained, her company EnVision Your Life, L.L.C., also has played an integral part of her quest to write a book that figures to become a fixture during what many have dubbed “perilous times.”

“This year on June 5 — exactly one year after the Facebook Live on my weekly broadcast — ‘Living Life On Purpose,’ — was launched,” said Johnson, alluding to yet another published project. “This was not planned, and it was only realized as I casually strolled my memories and the connection was made. It was as if God was blowing His daughter a kiss and putting His seal of approval on this project.

“When you leap without knowing the full plan, it is a faith walk, and all credit has to be given to our Father up above,” Johnson continued. “If He gave you the project, He will supplies the tools to complete it.”

Not to mention, change the overall landscape of your life in the process.

Texas author Yvette D. McGill’s God-assigned vision comes full circle courtesy of her featured book


And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. (Habakkuk 2:2 KJV)


THE GREAT EXCHANGE 

WOMAN WITH A VISION — Texas author Yvette D. McGill was quick to assume her latest kingdom assignment when she diligently put it on display until her God-mandated vision had come full circle, courtesy of an awe-inspiring book entitled, “theEXCHANGE,”  her featured written work that is approximately three months removed from its much-anticipated release.

Yvette D. McGill did just what she was supposed to do with the vision once God strategically introduced her to it.

She ran with it.
To her credit, she didn’t just run with it.
Rather, she picked it back up and diligently put it on display until her God-mandated vision had come full circle, courtesy of an awe-inspiring book entitled, “theEXCHANGE,”  her featured written work that is approximately three months removed from its much-anticipated release.
“God gave me the vision to write the book on March 22, 2016,” McGill, a  La Marque, Texas native, told Making Headline News this week. “I was sitting in a workshop with two famous authors, learning how to write a book and literally the room went black as if it was just me and God in the room.”

BUY YVETTE D. McGILL’S BOOK HERE: http://yvettedenisemcgill.com/

From a spiritual perspective, it essentially was a room that included McGill and her Creator.

How else to explain why her life-changing vision as an author has come to fruition?

“It was then He said, ‘You will write a book. You will name it #theEXCHANGE,’” McGill recalled.

In playing off of words, there is a valid reason behind such an intriguing, spiritually-gut checking exchange that surfaced between God and McGill, this author explained.

“(He said), ‘The reason why (I assigned you to write this book) is because when you were 25 years old, I told you to give your mom forgiveness for the difficult childhood you had. (He said to me), ‘When your daughter was 25, you had to ask her for forgiveness for lying to her about who her dad really was,’” McGill recalled. “He went on to say, ‘If you had not given her forgiveness when I told you, I would not have been able to allow your daughter to forgive you now.’”

As McGill explained, it was just the encounter she needed to witness in order to appropriately carry out her God-mandated vision as a new author.

A book she finished composing in January of this year — “I finished in January 2019, but had hoped to release it on Jan 2, 2019, my 51st birthday,” she said — McGill’s #theEXCHANGE was officially released two months later.

Much to her delight, it has been short of impressive ever since.

“The single most underlying reason I wrote this book is so that absolutely nobody else would be able to tell my truth,” McGill said a project she needed approximately two months to assemble. “I wanted it in writing why I did what I did.”

There are, in fact, other books in which McGill is involved mightily.

Prior to #theEXCHANGE, which is her second written work, McGill composed “Boss’d Up On Purpose,” a collaborative August 2018-released project she wrote with 12 other writers.

Then there is “It’s Not That Easy,” McGill’s third book that’s centered largely on her steadfastly reminding er audience to “stop telling me to get over it!”

This March 2019-released book, in fact, is comprised of 10 other authors, many of whom are mental illness survivors.


THE LUKE 18:1 FACTOR 

McGill also has played a major hand in the soon-to-be-released book entitled, “Soulful Prayers,” a coed collaboration project that is comprised of 51 writers, all of whom have grasped a thorough understanding of the power of prayer.

McGill also has played a major hand in the soon-to-be-released book entitled, “Soulful Prayers,” a coed collaboration project that is comprised of 51 writers, all of whom have grasped a thorough understanding of the power of prayer.

As for her latest book, McGill acknowledged there is, by all accounts, a divine message she aspires to get across to her readers.

“The divine message I’m sending through this book is no matter how life started out for you, you have to power to make the necessary changes to get it right,” said McGill, adding that the feedback has been overwhelmingly amazing. “And right should consist of who did God send you here to be…nothing more or less should matter above His plan.

“I am truly an example of the saying, ‘I’m just a nobody, trying to tell somebody that Jesus saves.’”

ALL IN GOD’S PLAN — In playing off of words, there is a valid reason behind such an intriguing, spiritually-gut checking exchange that surfaced between God and McGill, this author explained.

As McGill can boldly profess today unlike never before, had it not been for the Lord Who was on her side, there’s no telling where she’d be.

“He could have easily allowed me to die in my sins,” said McGill, “but He thought so much of me, He used my mess for a message and allowed me to exchange my truth for others’ transformation.”

IN HER OWN WORDS — “The divine message I’m sending through this book is no matter how life started out for you, you have to power to make the necessary changes to get it right,” said McGill, adding that the feedback has been overwhelmingly amazing. “And right should consist of who did God send you here to be…nothing more or less should matter above His plan.

Talk about running with a monumental vision.

And not just running with it.

But rather picking it back up and diligently put it on display until her God-mandated vision had come full circle, courtesy of an awe-inspiring book.

Yep. That’s just like God.

Dallas/Fort Worth businesswoman Crystal N. Tolbert ‘Walking In Greatness’ — literally and figuratively


She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. (Proverbs 31:17 NIV)


GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS 

ON A KINGDOM MISSION — As Crystal N. Tolbert explained during a recent interview with Making Headline News, her mission — and “responsibility” — for establishing her featured endeavor is to customarily offer create a strategic, effective platform, one that would help change the mindset, impact, lead, and prepare what she describes as “the jewels” (or women) for their own legacy, so they can, in turn, walk in complete greatness in the kingdom.

DALLAS — As far as the above Biblical passage goes, say this about Crystal Nicole Tolbert:

She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.
In that distinctly unique order.
Consider, for instance, how Tolbert, a progressive, flourishing and devout woman of faith, had go about assuming her strategic, God-mandated assignment as the founder of Walking In Greatness Ministries, a Dallas/Fort Worth-based, faith-oriented ministry and social organization.
As Tolbert, 39, explained during a recent interview with Making Headline News, her mission — and “responsibility” — for establishing her featured endeavor is to customarily offer a strategic, effective platform, one that would help change the mindset, impact, lead, and prepare what she describes as “the jewels” (or women) for their own legacy, so they can, in turn, walk in complete greatness in the kingdom.

“Our desire is to help woman find their value, purpose, joy, independence, and the true meaning of happiness to prepare them for their destiny to fully walk in greatness,” said Tolbert, providing a detailed synopsis of her ministry.

And then there is Tolbert’s “Woman of Greatness Jewels of Destiny,” a mentorship program that essentially falls under her ministry’s umbrella, whereby it customarily prepares and equips individuals to fully recognize their life’s purpose, particularly by gaining knowledge, support, and development needed to ignite their passions, gifts, and talents as an effective way to make a massive impact on the world.

“This (program) provides a Biblical, yet practical approach to living your life in purpose, on purpose,” Tolbert said.

An endeavor that accommodates individuals ranging mostly in ages 25 to 60, Tolbert credits what she deems a “kingdom creative for people who are ready to live a kingdom purpose life” as arguably the biggest reason she’s been blessed to oversee a Christian-based business for such a time as now.


“(I’m) continually gaining obtaining and acquiring the knowledge and skills required to have as a kingdom entrepreneur with ministry in the market place,” said Tolbert, explaining how her competitive drive in life has greatly enabled her to assemble a notable business. “I called it ‘Exit To The Platform.’”


As one of God’s “leading jewels and mentors” Tolbert has been afforded the luxury of promoting Walking in Greatness Ministries in a variety of establishments around the country, most notably Los Angeles, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Las Vegas, and Atlanta, among others.

“I really want to be able to impact and bring forth what God has place in them,” Tolbert, a Lufkin, Texas native said explaining the mission of her ministry. “It is so important to me that Jewels of Destiny are left with something of real value. I was called to be a dream changer because I have the gift to make dreams reality for the kingdom.”


ADVANCING THE KINGDOM

More than anything, though, Tolbert’s kingdom-based assignment is centered largely on her being an anointed woman of God, one who will ceremoniously take a much-anticipated massive step toward her destiny when she is officially installed as a Pastor at Restored IV Purpose Ministries Sunday in nearby Farmers Branch, Texas. Pictured with Tolbert is her husband, Kenneth Tolbert.

A Lufkin High School and Angelina College alum, Tolbert is widely known as a devoted wife, mother, author, prophetic scribe, and speaker.

More than anything, though, her kingdom-based assignment is centered largely on her being an anointed woman of God, one who will ceremoniously take a much-anticipated massive step toward her destiny when she is officially installed as a Pastor at Restored IV Purpose Ministries Sunday in nearby Farmers Branch, Texas.

Restored IV Purpose Ministries is located at 13624 Gamma Road.

Her itinerary also includes:

An upcoming speaking engagement in St Thomas at the Emerald Beach Resort, a Prophetic Scribe Workshop on August 3 in Los Angeles, and an appearance during the Joyful Moments Prayer Brunch on August 24 at Red Oak Municipal Center.

Armed with more than 15 years of experience in her selected line of work, Tolbert doesn’t shy away from the notion that God’s Hands have been on her life for as long as she can recall.

All of which essentially sums up why she sets about her work vigorously and her arms are strong for her tasks.

DESTINY STEPS — Tolbert’s “Woman of Greatness Jewels of Destiny” is mentorship program that’s essentially falls under her ministry’s umbrella, whereby it customarily prepares and equips individuals to fully recognize their life’s purpose, particularly by gaining knowledge, support, and development needed to ignite their passions, gifts, and talents as an effective way to make a massive impact on the world.

In that distinctly unique order.

“I want (people) to be able to be so inspired from what I share that they go back to their own various lives and put forth the action to make their dreams their own reality,” Tolbert said before offering what she labels kingdom tools to live by.

“Seek, write, and believe,” she continued. “You must seek the Lord first. Write the vision. Believe the Vision.”

To her credit, she’s doing that, with God, her Helper, steering the way.

Alabama preacher Tamika D. Pharr goes from ‘thug girl’ lifestyle to selling out solely to Jesus Christ


Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, since you know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:58)


SOLD OUT ON JESUS 

BEAUTY FOR ASHES — Aside from overseeing the day-to-day operations of a credible business, Tamika D. Pharr is Mobile-area minister as the beloved Co-Pastor of Tabernacle of Praise Church, a tradition-rich, historic institution that also has a campus in Richmond, California.

DALLAS — Tamika D. Pharr could be appropriately described as a number of things.

For starters, she’s an accomplished businesswoman as a resourceful sales consultant with Paparazzi, a globally-acclaimed venture that’s widely known for offering consumers fashion-forward jewelry and product parties.

She’s a proud mother of two, a grandmother of three, and a mother-in-“love” to whom she often describes as a “beautiful young lady.”
More than anything, though, Pharr would be the first to tell you that she’s devout woman of faith, one’s who deems it essential to go to great lengths to proclaim the matchless Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Never mind that this Mobile, Alabama native was raised in what the urban community has dubbed the School of Hard Knocks.
“I had a rough upbringing. But God,” Pharr, 43, told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “(I’ve) seen a lot, heard a lot, done a lot. But God.”

MORE ON TABERNACLE OF PRAISE: https://www.facebook.com/Tabernacle-of-Praise-Church-of-Mobile-Alabama-Richmond-CA-845016335556713/

And because Pharr, a resourceful, resilient, spiritually-empowering minister, doesn’t shy away from the notion that God is, by all accounts, the Focal Point of her life, it’s safe to assume that life as she knows it is, well, far more superior than her rough upbringing.

Aside from overseeing the day-to-day operations of a credible business, Pharr is Mobile-area minister as the beloved Co-Pastor of Tabernacle of Praise Church, a tradition-rich, historic institution that also has a campus in Richmond, California.

Widely regarded as a Christian-centered ministry that accompanied by the slogan, “Changing The World With The Word,” Tabernacle of Praise is pastored by Apostle Timothy D. Monigan.

WOMAN OF MANY HATS — Pharr is an accomplished businesswoman as a resourceful sales consultant with Paparazzi, a globally-acclaimed venture that’s widely known for offering consumers fashion-forward jewelry and product parties.

For Pharr, that she was steadfastly brought up in the church and raised in an environment where she customarily was taught Biblical principles has proven beneficial to her, considering even to this day, she’s still very much on fire for Almighty God.

Only now, she’s serving and paying homage to Him from a much larger stage.

“My family taught me that when you learn better, you do better,” said Pharr, recalling vividly the memorable developments of her childhood. “That took a while to set in on me, because I was a thug girl, but God turned me into a church girl.”

Widely regarded as a Christian-centered ministry that accompanied by the slogan, “Changing The World With The Word,” Tabernacle of Praise is pastored by Apostle Timothy D. Monigan.

As Pharr explained, it took a relatively solid supporting cast of godly women who collectively helped steer her from the School of Hard Knocks as a “thug girl” to, well, Sunday School — pretty much on the regular.


“I have my grandmother Pruitt, (who was) an elder of love and understanding at Primitive Baptist Church until her health change and God called her home,” Pharr recalled. “My grandmother, Pauline James, plays a great big part in my life. She also helped raise me. My great grandmother, Mary Pharr, is the mother of St. Luke Church, where she’s been a member since before I was born. She is now 100 years old and her health has changed. My great aunt, Pastor Shirley Edwards and I, are the newest pastors in the family.”


For Pharr, that she was steadfastly brought up in the church and raised in an environment where she customarily was Biblical principles has proven beneficial to her, considering even to this day, she’s still very much on fire for Almighty God.

Sadly as it is to say, Pharr’s rise to becoming a full-time minister hasn’t been fully accepted by some whom she sensed would offer valiant support.

“Well, since I became pastor, a lot of family and friends have fell off, but I heard the Lord say that He will add unto me,” Pharr said without hesitation. “I saw God positioning me for ministry back in 2008 after I lost my 10-week-old baby.”

As it turned out, Pharr’s losing an unborn child essentially served a defining moment, of sorts, for this beloved, bigger-than-life thug girl-turned-woman of the cloth.

“I heard the Lord say He has need of me,” Pharr said in the wake of her dreaded miscarriage.

WE ARE FAMILY — “My family taught me that when you learn better, you do better,” said Pharr, recalling vividly the memorable developments of her childhood. “That took a while to set in on me, because I was a thug girl, but God turned me into a church girl.”

To her credit, this young preacher hasn’t looked back since.

If nothing else, she’s diligently drawn closer and closer to God which, in dramatic sequence of events, is a far cry from the proverbial thug girl life.

Having officially accepted her calling to preach the Gospel in 2011 — “I heard God call my name, using a familiar voice,” she recalls — Pharr initially sensed that it was actually her unborn baby who was calling her name.

Oddly as it might seem, she eventually heard her name called three times.

One for the Father.

One for the Son.

One for the Holy Ghost.

In that order.

As it turned out, Pharr’s losing unborn child essentially served a defining moment, of sorts, for this beloved, bigger-than-life thug girl-turned-woman of the cloth.

And if God said it, that settles it.

“My testimony is when God say go, obey His voice,” Pharr said. “I told God I didn’t want to do this. First of all, I thought I wasn’t worthy enough. Then I still wanted to sit at the bar and stay in the club.”

Still, in spite of her rebelliousness, amongst the things that Pharr had ultimately discovered is that if God has a dire need of you, He’ll find His way to the bar and club.

In no particularly order.

“One night, as I was sitting in the club, I heard a Voice so clear and I started looking around for someone,” Pharr explained. “I heard Him again, so I got up and ran out the club like I just seen a ghost.”

In essence, that’s what actually happened.


GOD’S LEADING LADY 

As Pharr explained, it took a relatively solid supporting cast of godly women who collectively helped steer her from the School of Hard Knocks as a “thug girl” to, well, Sunday School — pretty much on the regular.

Only this time, it was the Holy Ghost.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

“I have been going since then,” Pharr, who plans to compose a book that depicts her life, said of having found her niche in ministry. “He called me out the club to the church, from a thug girl to a church girl.”

Which goes to show that today, she could be appropriately described as a number of things.

A beloved spokesperson for Christ topping the list.
