Atlanta-area businesswoman Verna V. Nickelberry functioning fervently in her ‘God taught’ endeavor

GOD-ORDERED STEPS 

DESTINY STEPS — Currently of a resident in the Atlanta area, Verna V. Nickelber is owner and chief executive officer of VeMaShe Enterprise LLC, her up-and-coming media company whose featured entity is product is ODINARY PEOPLE Magazine (or OPM), which went into full operations in 2008.

DALLAS — With all due respect to Verna V. Nickelberry, she essentially had it wrong.

Consider, for instance, when during a weekend interview with Making Headline News, Nickelberry, whose family is originally from Mississippi, spoke about her strong ties to Memphis.

“We moved to Memphis when I was five years old, Nickelberry said. “So Memphis is all I know. It’s home.”
Wrong.
With all due respect to Nickelberry, while she has an immeasurable connection to Memphis, credit her remarkably compelling strides as a notable businesswoman as being arguably the pivotal factor that has given way to her attracting more of a national presence through her endeavors.

OH TASTE AND SEE 

THIS IS THE LORD’S DOING — Although Nickelberry is pretty adamant that her publication essentially “found me,” amongst the things about which she’s thoroughly convinced is that her flourishing enterprise undoubtedly has been endorsed by God.

Currently of a resident in the Atlanta area, Nickelberry is owner and chief executive officer of VeMaShe Enterprise LLC, her up-and-coming media company whose featured entity is product is ODINARY PEOPLE Magazine (or OPM), which went into full operations in 2008.

In addition to running the day-to-day operations of her business, Nickelberry is an accomplished writer, having authored two books: “He Wrote The Script…Just Follow It!: Applying Biblical Principals for Entrepreneurial Success” and “Blue Skies & Green Grass: A 30 Day Affirmation Journal.”

Also, she were amongst 14 women who collectively wrote the book entitled, “Cultivating Your It Factor: 14 Must Haves  To Discover, Define and Refine Your Signature Brand.”

Though her venture accommodates people of all ages and ethnic groups nationwide, Nickelberry emphasized she’s especially blessed to have been afforded the golden opportunity to bask in the glory of her God-given element.

Her children’s book, “The Adventures Of KayKay” will jumpstart a 12-book series and is scheduled to be released this summer, she said.

“I wish I had a great story for you, but the truth is my business found me,” Nickelberry said.

With all due respect once again, Nickelberry — displaying a such resiliency and poise as only she could — certainly has an inspiring story to tell, considering VeMaShe Enterprise emerged courtesy of a rather unique combination that’s comprised of her name as well as the names of her two sons, which intriguingly means “family, unite, and love.”

“I’m wanting to create a family company that my son would work at,” Nickelberry said of her business venture, which has been in existence for approximately 10 years.

Although Nickelberry is pretty adamant that her publication essentially “found me,” amongst the things about which she’s thoroughly convinced is that her flourishing enterprise undoubtedly has been endorsed by God.

MAKING MAJOR STRIDES — With all due respect to Nickelberry, while she has an immeasurable connection to Memphis, credit her remarkably compelling strides as a notable businesswoman as being arguably the pivotal factor that has given way to her attracting more of a national presence through her endeavors.

“It is an assignment — a vision — from God which took place in 2005, but was not birth until 2008,” Nickelberry explained. “We’ve been at it for 10 years.”

And what a memorable decade it has been for this progressive, thriving businesswoman, who doesn’t shy away from the notion that God is the Focal Point of a company whose best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

Interestingly, Nickelberry’s magazine is widely known for hosting an annual business prayer breakfast, as well as its annual OPM Servant Awards, an event that customarily honors individuals, non-profit organizations, and corporations, particularly for their valiant contributions to communities.

This year’s OPM Servant Awards are scheduled for  September 20 in nearby Conyer, Georgia.

In addition to running the day-to-day operations of her business, Nickelberry is an accomplished writer, having authored two books: “He Wrote The Script…Just Follow It!: Applying Biblical Principals for Entrepreneurial Success” and “Blue Skies & Green Grass: A 30 Day Affirmation Journal.”

“We also give out a life time achievement award,” said Nickelberry, alluding to her event’s The Sylvester Bowens Life Time Achievement, which is named in honor of her father.

Though her venture accommodates people of all ages and ethnic groups nationwide, Nickelberry emphasized she’s especially blessed to have been afforded the golden opportunity to bask in the glory of her God-given element.

“I enjoy the freedom doing what I love,” Nickelberry said. “OPM is an inspirational magazine, so we get to share the word of God and some great testimonies of God’s miracles and blessings. This is actually one of the segments in the magazine.”

With all due respect once again, Nickelberry, displaying a such resiliency and poise — certainly has an inspiring story to tell, considering VeMaShe Enterprise emerged courtesy of a rather unique combination that’s comprised of her name as well as the najes of her two sons, which intriguingly means “family, unite, and love.”

Although Nickelberry admittedly was reluctant to go into business for herself, she’s overwhelmingly giddy she had ultimately answered God’s Voice by exercising her faith in ways unimaginable. “I answered the call from God and, nevertheless, I moved forward,” Nickelberry said with a smile. “I’m God taught.”

And, for that reasons, Memphis isn’t all she knows.

With all due respect to this talented, gifted businesswoman, she’s fully persuaded that even while walking fervently in her divine purpose, the best is yet to come.

“If I can but inspire one person while I’m on my daily journey, I would have done my part in bring a smile to someone’s face and joy to their heart,” Nickelberry said.

Capping off a brilliantly, empowering story, one she sensed she never had to tell.

But God Whom, much to her delight, had the final say.

Georgia Pastor Vincent and Lady Ardys Leslie savoring the abundant life that Christ came to give them


Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly; Nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock; And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away. (1 Peter 5:2-4 NKJV)


THE JOHN 10:10 AFFECT

FRUITS OF THEIR LABOR — Powered by the motto that reads: We are real people with real issues looking for real answers, Abundant Life is widely deemed “one church in two locations,” considering it will unveil a campus in nearby Augusta the final weekend of April. As if that isn’t enough to set off a festive, jubilant, collective praise break amongst the masses, Abundant Life commemorated its fifth anniversary the first weekend in April, a feat Pastor Vincent and Lady Ardys Leslie don’t merely take lightly, considering God had strategically set them aside for His use — particularly to serve faithfully alongside each other for such a pivotal time as now.

DALLAS — While addressing the media Friday afternoon, Vincent Leslie recalled in great detail how God had strategically gone about placing him on an pivotal assignment for such a time as now.

A massive, life-changing endeavor, one that, to his distinctly unique credit, is steadily impacting and enriching the kingdom unlike never before.

“I didn’t just roll out of bed one day and start preaching,” Pastor Leslie told Making Headline News during a phone interview from Atlanta. “I’ve been preaching the gospel for over 20 years.”
For Pastor Leslie, it is a two-plus-decade journey that has benefited him mightily as one of God’s anointed spokesperson, who happens to be the Senior Pastor of Abundant Life Church of Atlanta and Augusta.

GOD’S PLAN — For Pastor Leslie, his two-plus-decade ministerial journey has benefited him mightily as one of God’s anointed spokesperson, who happens to be the Senior Pastor of Abundant Life Church of Atlanta and Augusta.

Officially referred to as Abundant Life Worship Center, this institution that has become a fixture in the Atlanta metropolitan area and has flourished fervently since its 2012 inception, in large part because it continues to fortify its awe-inspiring vision that’s centered on meeting people where they are, thus helping them to become fully devoted followers of Christ.

Powered by the motto that reads: We are real people with real issues looking for real answers, Abundant Life is widely deemed “one church in two locations,” considering it will unveil a campus in nearby Augusta the final weekend of April.

As if that isn’t enough to set off a festive, jubilant, collective praise break amongst the masses, Abundant Life commemorated its fifth anniversary the first weekend in April, a feat Pastor and Lady Ardys Leslie don’t merely take lightly, considering God had strategically set them aside for His use — particularly to serve faithfully alongside each other for such a pivotal time as now.

GOD’S LEADING LADY — A native of Los Angeles, Lady Leslie is a former salon owner and master stylist, who was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness. Not to be outdone, though, while it seemed she was “sold out to that religion” for an extended period of time, arguably the most crucial phenomenon she had come to discover is that Jesus isn’t just the Reason for every season but, above all, He’s the Reason she’s been set aside for God’s use.

Because they have diligently obeyed the Voice of God, today unlike never before, this couple — who share four children — are steadily savoring the fruits of their labor, not to mention possessing and savoring the Abundant Life that Christ came to give them.

For Pastor Leslie — a former Alabama A&M University student who spent eight years in the U. S. Army Reserve — his rise to selling out solely to God began at the tender age of 12.

A native of Huntsville, Alabama, who’s widely regarded as a man who God has commissioned and ordained to assure that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is disseminated to all mankind, Pastor Leslie  emerged as a young, gifted saxophonist, one who customarily played gospel music on a slew of platforms — most notably appearing as opening acts for a number of national recording artists.

Interestingly, it wasn’t until 1999 that he officially answered the call of God on his life, a development that had ultimately given way to his becoming a licensed minister at the historic Greater Hope Tabernacle Church in his native establishment.

A former armor bearer, whose kingdom duties included traveling the country as an adjutant (or godly servant), amongst the notable factors Pastor Leslie discovered was that authentic ministry meant to “to meet the needs of the people.”

All of which had eventually led to his much-anticipated Pastorate tenure in 2003 when he was installed as Senior Pastor of Greater Hope Tabernacle Church  in Lawrenceville, Georgia, a milestone that unfolded just two years after he had become an ordained elder.

Nearly a decade later, however, Pastor Leslie assumed his next major ministerial assignment when he founded Abundant Life Ministries in Lawrenceville along with his beloved companion.

A native of Los Angeles, Lady Leslie is a former salon owner and master stylist, who was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness.

Not to be outdone, though, while it seemed she was “sold out to that religion” for an extended period of time, arguably the most crucial phenomenon she had come to discover is that Jesus isn’t just the Reason for every season but, above all, He’s the Reason she’s been set aside for God’s use.

THIS IS HOLY GROUND 

SERVANT’S HEART — A former armor bearer, whose kingdom duties included traveling the country as an adjutant (or godly servant), amongst the notable factors Pastor Leslie discovered was that authentic ministry meant to “to meet the needs of the people.” All of which had eventually led to his much-anticipated Pastorate tenure in 2003 when he was installed as Senior Pastor of Greater Hope Tabernacle Church  in Lawrenceville, Georgia, a milestone that unfolded just two years after he had become an ordained elder.

How else to explain why she serves with keen, immeasurable excellence alongside her husband as a devoted evangelist?

“She strives to help women know their worth and value,” said a spokesperson in a detailed introduction of Lady Leslie, who also serves as director of Abundant Life Church Of Atlanta and Augusta’s Women’s Ministry, whereby she assembles and oversees programs that will enable disciple women to grow and thrive in their relationship with Christ.

Having adopted a mission in which she’s destined to “win lost souls to Christ,” Lady Leslie’s other kingdom-based responsibilities include hosting an annual women’s retreat and a monthly women’s bible study.

BEACON OF LIGHT — Officially referred to as Abundant Life Worship Center, this institution that has become a fixture in the Atlanta metropolitan area and has flourished fervently since its 2012 inception, in large part because it continues to fortify its awe-inspiring vision that’s centered on meeting people where they are, thus helping them to become fully devoted followers of Christ.

Interestingly, she is widely known for being a relationship coach, which affords her the golden opportunity to empower women of all ages, particularly through life-enhancing speeches, health and wellness, and encouraging wholeness.

The owner and adviser of the Mentor Me MasterClass — a Christian-based company and mentorship program that centers on providing spiritual oversight, wisdom, guidance, and purpose for women — Lady Leslie is an advocate for inspiring women from various walks of life to execute the essential work that would greatly enable them to savor a physically, emotionally, and spiritually-equipped healthy lifestyle.

“Our ministry is targeted toward couples and families,” Pastor Leslie said.

Now we know why.

Talk about a massive, life-changing endeavor, one that, to this couple’s distinctly unique credit, is steadily impacting and enriching the kingdom unlike never before.

BISHOP T. D. JAKES 2018 WOMAN THOU ART LOOSED ADVANCE MEDIA COVERAGE  


Shawonia Thomas is destined to make a difference, is determined to have a monumental impact amongst youths all across America.

Even if it means going to great lengths to start a nonprofit organization that will greatly enable her to fulfill her lofty mission.

“Our future youths are at a high risk of suicide, school dropouts, and gang activities,” Thomas, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said when asked to explain how her competitive drive in life fueled her desire to start a notable business venture.

MAKING MAJOR STRIDES — To her credit, Shawonia Thomas, a native of Flint, Michigan, deemed it essential to establish Jabez Society Chambers Incorporated, an internationally-acclaimed nonprofit institution mission that centered largely on mentoring, educating, and enhancing the social and personal lives of our youth.

To her credit, Thomas, a native of Flint, Michigan, deemed it essential to establish Jabez Society Chambers Incorporated, an internationally-acclaimed nonprofit institution mission that centered largely on mentoring, educating, and enhancing the social and personal lives of our youth.

To grasp a thorough understanding of how vital Thomas’ organization is especially prevalent for such time as now as Making Headline News kicks off its Bishop T. D. Jakes’ 2018 Woman Thou Art Loosed advance coverage, look no further than the staggering numbers amongst suicides in America in recent years.

GOD’S LEADING LADY — To grasp a thorough understanding of how vital Thomas’ organization is especially prevalent for such time as now as Making Headline News kicks off its Bishop T. D. Jakes’ 2018 Woman Thou Art Loosed advance coverage, look no further than the staggering numbers amongst suicides in America in recent years.

According to a June 2018 report by The Washington Post, suicide rates rose in all but one state between 1999 and 2016, with increases seen across age, gender, race, and ethnicity, as cited in a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In addition, the organization discovered that of more than half of all deaths in 27 states, the people had no known mental health condition when they ended their lives.

All things considered, these are amongst the reasons Thomas has become especially committed to doing whatever is necessary to impact lives — one life at a time.

“First and foremost, it is because we are commanded to love one another,” said Thomas, explaining why it is imperative that we esteem others highly than ourselves. “Secondly, I want to be the change I want to see. Last but not least, I love seeing the growth and the joy that comes from giving and healing.”


Having been nurturing and mentoring youths for more than 15 years, Thomas’ nonprofit organization caters mostly girls ranging in ages of 10 to 16, although she emphasized that her Family Empowerment Project accommodates families nationwide.

For what it’s worth, her rise to starting a worthy nonprofit all began with a rather lofty vision, one that essentially was accompanied by God’s endorsement.

After all, she’s destined to make a difference, determined to have a monumental impact amongst youth all across America.

“After God gave me the vision, I was inspired by Miss Natalie from another nonprofit, 4 Girls, Inc., Charles Reese, Apostle Okose Emmanuel, my prophet, and Rev. Mother Ayomide of Lagos, Nigeria, my mentor,” said Thomas, whose inteniary includes an upcoming speaking engagement at schools in Ghana and Nigeria later this year.

Ex-spouse of NFL player, author Angela Marshall’s autobiography inspiring others to ‘get in the game of life’

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES ANGELA MARSHALL 


Every so often, Angela Marshall fields the question as if she expected it.

“After being asked numerous times about the supposed lifestyle of the rich and famous, I decided to pen my truth about reality, rags, and riches,” Marshall said.

During a recent interview with Making Headline News, Marshall, an Augusta, Georgia-based author and former wife of a professional athlete, spoke at length about her assortment of experiences as a devoted spouse to a wealthy NFL player in her latest book entitled, “The Story And Life Of An Ex-NFL Wife: Reality To Rags To Riches.” Reality To Rags To Riches: The Story And Life Of An Ex-NFL Wife.”

GAME CHANGER — During a recent interview with Making Headline News, Angela Marshall, an Augusta, Georgia-based author and former wife of a professional athlete, spoke at length about her assortment of experiences as a devoted spouse to a wealthy NFL player in her latest book entitled, “The Story And Life Of An Ex-NFL Wife: Reality To Rags To Riches.” Reality To Rags To Riches: The Story And Life Of An Ex-NFL Wife.”

A book that was officially released in November 2017, Marshall’s autobiography depicts what she appropriately describes as “this football life,” a life-changing trend that had afforded her extraordinary opportunities, exposure to life’s options, and blessings untold, according to a detail breakdown of her book at Amazon.com.

As Marshall vividly explained, such a unique life had filled what she has dubbed her “personal playbook,” one that was accompanied by the wisdom to call what she refers to as “an audible, pass, run,” even a proverbial “go for the two-point conversion as I lived each day,” she explained.

FIRST QUARTER — A book that was officially released in November 2017, Marshall’s autobiography depicts what she appropriately describes as “this football life,” a life-changing trend that had afforded her extraordinary opportunities, exposure to life’s options, and blessings untold, according to a detail breakdown of her book at Amazon.com.

“Yes, I observed the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat from the stands and sidelines,” Marshall continued while sharing a synopsis of latest book. “Most importantly, I beheld strength, courage and purpose. And those qualities molded me into the person I am today. I got off the bench after merely existing and got into the game of living.”

A book Marshall began composing sometime in October 2016, this accomplished writer needed just shy of a year to complete an informative written document she says is a thorough perspective of how she felt while living what she describes as a “life of lack,” particularly through the public’s thought whereby she was, by all accounts, living a life of lavish.

PERSONAL SUPER BOWL — As Marshall vividly explained, such a unique life had filled what she has dubbed her “personal playbook,” one that was accompanied by the wisdom to call what she refers to as “an audible, pass, run,” even a proverbial “go for the two-point conversion as I lived each day,” she explained.

While some of the immediate feedback has been favorable, Marshall also acquired her share of backlash since the release of her second book.

“A handful of people have criticized me, saying I am exploiting my ex-husband’s former pro-career to make money,” said Marshall who, in November 2016, made her authorship debut with the release of Lust, Lessons, Love and Life. “A few had no idea that I was suffering in silence during that period in my life, and others have said they still want money, fame, and the experience.”

Despite the array of mixed reactions surrounding her latest book, Marshall doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s undoubtedly fulfilling her divine purpose through a newly-erected project, one that is accompanied by God’s endorsement.

After all, if God said it, that settles it.

“The Biblical scripture says that tables are prepared for us,” Marshall said. “I’m exhorting folks to feast daily from the tables of promises, potential, power, and prosperity from God. Also, to get off the bench and get in the game of life.

“Without giving too many details from the book, I had quite a few lessons that I needed to learn as well as continue growing through my struggles to strength,” Marshall continued. “Being able to tell my truth has and is setting myself and others free.”

FIRST AND 10 — A book Marshall began composing sometime in October 2016, this accomplished writer needed just shy of a year to complete an informative written document she says is a thorough perspective of how she felt while living what she describes as a “life of lack,” particularly through the public’s thought whereby she was, by all accounts, living a life of lavish.

Having announced that other books are forthcoming, Marshall describes her itinerary as mostly steady, thanks in large part to what she labels her “transparent platform” about her life.

“I have speaking opportunities or have author appearances at least three times a month for various businesses and organizations,” Marshall said.

In all likelihood, the possibility exist that more opportunities to share of and promote her book could very well come to fruition, especially considering the 2018 NFL season officially begins in the coming days.

Said Marshall: “Life has taken me on a journey, which took three major turns, each leading to a road of exploration and discovery, each crafting me into the person who would become skillful at using life’s compass in navigating new directions and negotiating what’s best for me:

IN THE RED ZONE — Having announced that other books are forthcoming, Marshall describes her itinerary as mostly steady, thanks in large part to what she labels her “transparent platform” about her life.

Reality is a place that forced me to face life early on as is. The seeds planted during that period are directly responsible for my growth. All of my core values were established. No matter how far I strayed, the experiences throughout that time, prepared me for rags and riches.

Rags taught me humility, agility and possibility. I learned to be grateful when I am served, but more importantly, to be willing to serve others. The events during this period instilled fearless faith that grounded me and prepared me for true Riches.

AFTER FURTHER REVIEW — In all likelihood, the possibility exist that more opportunities to share of and promote her book could very well come to fruition, especially considering the 2018 NFL season officially begins in the coming days.

Riches are not about what, it’s about whom. For me, that means family, friends and moments. They are true riches, which are irreplaceable. If I can replace it, it is not a true treasure.”

Well said by this brilliantly gifted author, fielding the question as if she expected it.

Once again.

An empowerment event that will be highlighted by what is known as the “Unbroken, Still I Smile Documentary,” the Masquerade Gala is powered by Sisters In Charge, Charles’ credible Atlanta-based nonprofit organization, which is centered largely on providing a safe haven, support network, and resources to help victims of domestic violence regain dignity and control over their lives.

The event, which is open to the public, most notably domestic violence victims and survivors, will accommodate attendees with dinner and will include a host of guest speakers. Also, there will be prizes, live auctions, celebrity donations, and live entertainment, Charles told Making Headline News this week.

Having lived a majority of life residing in Lynn, Massachusetts, Charles is a best-selling author, motivational speaker, a legislative and domestic violence advocate, as well as Vice-President of ACHI Women Supporting Women Association, Inc.

CHARLES IN CHARGECharles’ personal experiences, by all accounts, have greatly equipped her with the keen knowledge to grasp a thorough understanding of the proverbial physical and psychological barriers, particularly as it relates to preventing women from leaving their abusers.

As Founder and CEO of Sisters In Charge, Inc., her nonprofit institution has become a fixture for aiding battered women with children, particularly with regards to giving these women a healthy start, as well as what she describes as the “opportunity to learn and protection from harm.”

Interestingly, the mission of Sisters In Charge is to provide a safe shelter and, most importantly, a variety of educational, recreational, and social services to address the essential and changing needs of the families in Georgia and its surrounding communities.

YOU GO GIRL!!! As Founder and CEO of Sisters In Charge, Inc., her nonprofit institution has become a fixture for aiding battered women with children, particularly giving these women a healthy start, as well as what she describes as the “opportunity to learn and protection from harm.”

Born in Port Au Prince, Haiti, Charles relocated to the United States in 1986 at the tender age of seven.

An accomplished and flourishing businesswoman, Charles is a survivor of domestic violence and is currently living with multiple sclerosis.

Her personal  experiences, by all accounts, have greatly equipped her with the keen knowledge to grasp a thorough understanding of the proverbial physical and psychological barriers, particularly as it relates to preventing women from leaving their abusers.

ON A MISSIONInterestingly, the mission of Charles’ Sisters In Charge is to provide a safe shelter and, most importantly, a variety of educational, recreational, and social services to address the essential and changing needs of the families in Georgia and its surrounding communities.

“Ms. Charles also understands the potential fatal nature of domestic abuse, which makes seeking assistance imperative,” said a spokesperson for Charles’ nonprofit organization. “By providing a home where battered women and their children may seek temporary shelter, Ms. Charles hopes to help these women understand they are not alone. Her shelter will be designed to provide a safe space where victims may share their stories and meet other survivors to support them in their journey. Additionally, she hopes to provide these women with resources to help them gain control over their lives.”

In addition, Charles is the mother of fraternal twins (a boy and girl ages 21), both of whom are currently pursuing undergraduate degrees.

She also has a 15- year-old daughter and a 13-year-old son and raised each of her children as a single mother, all the while holding down two jobs and furthering her education.

Georgia ordained elder Dolores Jackson’s Faith Under Fire Ministry impacting lives mightily in the Body of Christ

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:58 KJV)

 

One thing about Dolores Jackson, she’s always going to keep it positive.

Or she’ll make it a point to observe virtually every situation or circumstance from God’s perspective.

To her credit, that certainly rings true when it comes to her crossing paths with others.

Said Jackson in a rather spirited, encouraging Facebook just before noon EST on Wednesday:

“God, I thank You for the blessing of the love of good friends. Each day, my friends shower me with love and care, and I feel comfort knowing they are always there for me. I am so grateful for each one of them, as different and unique as they are, for the things they teach me. My friends are like gemstones, so priceless and beautiful. Thank you Lord.”

And just like that, Jackson, an Georgia-based ordained elder, had appropriately exemplified yet another dose of agape love, as only she could.

“Know this…being saved is a struggle,” Jackson, 55, told Making Headline News during a recent interview, during which she recalled the memorable events leading to her having effectively accepted her divine calling in ministry.

For Jackson, a native of Holly Springs, Mississippi — a small, rural town that’s roughly 30 miles south of Memphis — it seemed a foregone conclusion that she’d ultimately assume a notable, commendable role as one of God’s devoted spokespersons.

For starters, Jackson is the product of a Christian-based foundation whereby her family is comprised of as many as a dozen ministers or preachers, she explained.

Thanks in large part to the unyielding support of her husband, her son, as well as the valiant support of a host of family members and close acquaintances, and it’s no wonder Jackson doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s destined to be on fire for God for such a time as now.

Times that, truth be told, are widely deemed as perilous.

Having been raised mostly as a Methodist, Jackson was the product of the Catholic school system, although she didn’t particularly study the Catholic religion, she acknowledged.

Nevertheless, like most of her peers — particularly those who were brought up in the church — she had become a fixture in the Body of Christ at a relatively young age.

“My mom and dad made absolutely sure that I attended church regularly,” Jackson recalled.

It is, by all accounts, because of Jackson’s desire to sellout to God during her youth that practically sums up why she’s just as on fire to serve the Lord today, a trend that, much to her delight, has given way to her emerging as the mastermind of what is known as her Faith Under Fire Ministry.

“My parents taught me to love, respect, and to work hard,” said Jackson, when asked what were amongst the key values she was taught as a child.

Demonstrating a resourceful, resilient work ethic is surely something by which Jackson has steadily kept going in her spiritual repertoire even to this very day.

“I kept falling and struggling with my faith,” she recalled.

Still, because of who she is and because of where God is taking her, even when she seemed on the brink of falling, even when it seemed her faith was bleak, even when it seemed the enemy had the upper hand on her faith walk with God, there was God, strategically setting her aside for His use.

Talk about fortifying some proverbial bend-but-don’t faith under fire.

“For God I live, and for God I will die,” Jackson often says when sharing of her assortment of faith-based testimonies. “It is not easy. If it was, we would not need Christ. It is a process.”

A process that, much to her delight, has greatly given way to her emerging as one of God’s most devoted spokespersons.

“Finally, I began to realize that Christ is part of the process, that Christ is key to the process, that Christ is the success of the process,” Jackson said.

Well said by a big-hearted woman of God, one who’s widely known for always keeping it positive.

Atlanta author Sylinda Mumphery on her latest inspiring book: ‘I want to see every woman win’

Five and counting.

That is how many awe-inspiring books accomplished empowerment extraordinaire Sylinda Mumphery has written over the past 12 years.

KICK BACK AND READ THIS — Atlanta-area author Sylinda Mumphery’s latest book is entitled, The Heartbeat Of A Woman,” an inspirational and informative written document that made its much-anticipated presence on the market Mother’s Day weekend.

Her latest: The Heartbeat Of A Woman, an inspirational and informative written document that made its much-anticipated presence on the market Mother’s Day weekend.

For Mumphery, a native of Cordele, Georgia who resides in Atlanta, her latest book was composed in large part because her primary desire is for women to understand that their hearts are delicate and that they must be careful of whom they allow to hold it.

“When we were created, our hearts became one with God and it is the most precious gift on the inside of us,” Mumphery told Making Headline News this week. “Everyone is not capable or equipped to carry the weight, power or the magnitude of love that flows from our hearts.”

Having grasped the vision last September to produce her latest book, Mumphery needed just a few months to complete The Heartbeat Of A Woman, a rather brief project that was released less than a year after her previous book, The Secrets Within.

Widely known amongst her peers as “Sylinda D,” Mumphery is owner and CEO of SylindaD, LLC and is widely known as the founder of Removing The Bandages Women Movement.

Besides The Heartbeat Of A Woman and The Secrets Within, Mumphery is the mastermind behind the books: Malcolm And Peanut, a children’s book that was released in 2006), In The Name Of Love, a book that designed for teens that was released that same year, and Heal My Private Parts, a project that hit the market in 2014.

ATTRACTING MEDIA COVERAGE — For Mumphery, a native of Cordele, Georgia who resides in Atlanta, her latest book was composed in large part because her primary desire is for women to understand that their hearts are delicate and that they must be careful of whom they allow to hold it.

As for her latest book, Mumphery is extremely appreciative of the favorable feedback she’s garnered in such a brief timeframe since its ceremonious release.

“I have received positive feedback so far,” Mumphery said. “Several women have told me that they can relate to the chapters and have found themselves in at least one or two (occurrences).”

Asked in what ways is her latest book a part of the purpose for which God has created her, Mumphery, without hesitation, said: “There is so much that I can say in regard to this question.  I have experienced a lot of heartbreak in my lifetime; however I now understand that my pain was for my purpose. This book speaks of several types of heartbeats and I can relate to each one.”

STARTING LINEUP — Besides The Heartbeat Of A Woman and The Secrets Within, Mumphery is the mastermind behind the books: Malcolm And Peanut, a children’s book that was released in 2006), In The Name Of Love, a book that designed for teens that was released that same year, and Heal My Private Parts, a project that hit the market in 2014.

Which, as a result, practically sums up why Mumphery is thoroughly persuaded that The Heartbeat Of A Woman is especially prevalent for such a time as now?

All things considered, there mere fact that she’s conquered and outlasted her assortment of hurtful encounters, she’s destined to help others follows suit.

“I want to see every woman win and be the best that she was created to be,” Mumphery said. “I realized that if I continued to hold onto my pain and carry it on the inside of my heart, then I would never be a complete woman or walk in my purpose.  I went through the fire and endured the pain, so that I could reach back and pull my sisters out, to let them know that even though their heart may have experienced trauma, they did not flat line and that they too can make it.”

With a few scheduled public appearances, during which she will promote and speak in detail about her new book, Mumphery has announced that Part 2 of The Heartbeat Of A Woman and The Secrets Within are presently in the works, as well as “many more books to come,” she acknowledged.

Besides being a notable and accomplished author, Mumphery is a mentor, motivational speaker, and an Atlanta-based radio talk show host.

MAKING HER ROUNDS — With a few scheduled public appearances, during which she will promote her new book, Mumphery has announced that Part 2 of The Heartbeat Of A Woman and The Secrets Within are presently in the works, as well as “many more books to come,” she acknowledged.

As for her latest project, she doesn’t shy away from the notion that offering a great deal of transparency, coupled with viewing obstacles from God’s perspective, have benefited her mightily as a longtime and thriving author.

Five books and counting.

For the record.

“We must guard our hearts and be careful that we don’t allow others to cause it to bleed,” Mumphery said. “When we discover who we are and what’s on the inside of us, then we will understand that not everyone is worthy of entrance into the place that produces life within us.”

TRAGEDY TO TRIUMPH: Atlanta-based businessman Charles Jordan Coe, Jr. conquers pair of tear-jerking disabilities, savors long-awaited dream in the process

As it pertains to getting the most out of life by diligently maximizing his potential, Charles Jordan Coe, Jr. has two pivotal self-originated proverbs he customarily goes by.

The first one reads: A true test of leadership is whether or not one can teach what he has learned to others. If he can do so with passion, persistence and dedication, then he emerges as a true leader.

HEART OF BROTHERLY LOVE — A native of Philadelphia, Charles Coe, Jr., is the director and chief executive officer of The Incredible Kids Learning Center, LLC, a notable institution in his native establishment that is geared largely toward understanding the early stages of the childhood development process.

The second one reads: There are no road maps to life. We will encounter both good times and bad times, ups and downs, success and setbacks; I do not believe in failure, but rather learning lessons. The key is how we utilize our strengths to navigate our way through this process called life. Every lesson has a hidden blessing and every blessing has a hidden lesson. You are the author of your own book. Life will serve as the ultimate guide as we create Life Chapters.

For what it’s worth, there is a reason for which Coe, Jr., an Atlanta-based businessman, deemed it essential to appropriately adopt such a pair of personal slogans that, much to his delight, are synonymous to the overall landscape of his life.

“I knew early on that I wanted to establish a business and brand that focused on providing children with a well-rounded educational foundation and allowing people to become the best version of themselves,” Coe, Jr. told Making Headline News this week.

To his distinctly unique credit, he’s doing just that.

VISION DISRUPTED — At the tender age of seven, Coe, Jr. was involved in a freak accident that, ironically, occurred on his mother’s birthday, during which someone threw a rock that landed in his left eye. As the day progressed, his vision eventually worsen, thus given way to blood leading out of his eye and ultimately causing him to lose consciousness.

A native of Philadelphia, Coe, Jr., is the director and chief executive officer of The Incredible Kids Learning Center, LLC, a notable institution in his native establishment that is geared largely toward understanding the early stages of the childhood development process.

Such a trend, according to Coe, Jr., is considerably the most significant time in the life of any family unit as well as the most instrumental time for children, particularly as they embark upon their educational journey together, he said.

Not only that, the proverbial early stages of the childhood development process is typically a time during which children develop independence and, most of all, began to notice the world around them, Coe, Jr. acknowledged.

 

LEAST HE FORGET — For what it’s worth, there is a reason for which Coe, Jr., an Atlanta-based businessman, deemed it essential to appropriately adopt such a pair of personal slogans that, much to his delight, are synonymous to the overall landscape of his life.

Located at Philly’s 1807 Cottman Avenue, Incredible Kids Learning Center, according to Coe, Jr., is widely known for steadfastly operating on the premise that suggest, among other things: “When parents provide their children with a solid educational support system today, they enable them to become something incredible tomorrow,” Coe, Jr. emphasized.

Amongst the notable reasons for this observation, Coe, Jr. said, is that children often engage in what he describes as daily meaningful activities, as well as specialized weekly projects that nurture and further develop the physical growth, social, cognitive, and emotional skills of each child within the learning center.

Moreover, Coe, Jr. said that while children typically operate on different functioning capacities, Individualized Educational Development Plans (or IEDP’s) are established by Certified Teachers to ensure a smooth educational transition as well as successful personal development. Our program welcomes and celebrates children from a variety of cultural, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds.

“It is our belief that diversification is key as children navigate through the world around them,” Coe, Jr. explained. “Unlike other programs within the same child care arena, IKLC enhances the overall learning process by also offering human services support as well.”

A proud graduate of Philadelphia’s historic Temple University, it is, by all accounts, because of what Coe, Jr. deems a “Turning Tragedy Into Action And Triumph” encounter that has given way to his appropriately carrying out his long-awaited vision as the face of Incredible Kids Learning Center, LLC.

As the day progressed, his vision eventually worsen, thus given way to blood leaking out of his eye and ultimately causing him to lose consciousness.

“My parents could not wait for an ambulance to come and decided to rush me to St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, where we were told that as a result of the amount of intake emergencies, I would have to wait until a bed and doctor became available,” Coe, Jr. recalled. “We couldn’t wait. My parents then rushed me to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (also known as CHOP), where I was admitted immediately.”

DREAM UNFOLDED — Located at 1807 Cottman Avenue, Incredible Kids Learning Center, according to Coe, Jr., is widely known for steadfastly operating on the premise that suggest, among other things, when parents provide their children with a solid educational support system today, they enable them to become something incredible tomorrow,” Coe, Jr. emphasized.

After surgery, doctors informed the Coes that their child’s vision was completely gone as a result of a severely damaged retina that was accompanied by a fractured nose and traumatic brain injury. As if those developments weren’t enough to his rattle his family, Coe, Jr. slipped into a coma, where he would remain for approximately 45 days.

Acknowledging he wasn’t the “same little boy” that his parents knew prior to that accident, Coe, Jr. recalled having suddenly been hampered by the mindset of that of a two-to-three-year-old.

Still, there emerge a silver-lining to a heartbreaking story that, fortunately for Coe, Jr., eventually blossomed into a vision that would change his life — for the rest of his life.

VICTORIOUS REGARDLESS — Despite all about which he had endured, there emerge a silver-lining to a heartbreaking story that, fortunately for Coe, Jr., eventually blossomed into a vision that would change his life — for the rest of his life.

“The loss of my vision in my left eye turned out to be a blessing in disguise, because this has propelled me to become the person that I am today,” said Coe, Jr., who’s also widely known as an accomplished motivational speaker, disabilities advocate, entrepreneur, educator, life skills wellness coach, corporate trainer, intensive clinical case manager, trauma specialist, and mentor.

“I have never used my two disabilities as an excuse, but rather as a motivator to do great things and become great. I look at it as trying to inspire and conquer the world with one eye. I aspire to inspire. Most importantly, I want to serve as a role model for other individuals with disabilities, to know that they, too, can be successful in any endeavor they decide to pursue and that they just have to believe in themselves. I feel extremely blessed to be placed in the position that I’m in today, and this is just the beginning for me.”

As it pertains to getting the most out of life by maximizing his potential, Coe, Jr. has two pivotal self-originated proverbs he customarily goes by.

Now we know why.

Atlanta-area businesswoman Latasha Kirby: ‘I can help change your Chapter 13 to a 700 credit score’

As the old catchphrase goes, “Experience is the best teacher.”

No one, it seems, can attest to this thought-provoking, life-enhancing notion more than accomplished businesswoman Latasha Kirby.

COMEBACK FOR THE AGES — Currently a resident in the Atlanta-area, Latasha Kirby has reemerged as a credit repair specialist who has become passionate about helping others rid themselves of their checkered credit past.

A native of Memphis who is an Atlanta-area entrepreneur, Kirby, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, recalled like yesterday how the restaurant she once owned in the Bluff City was unceremoniously shut down because of its continuous poor revenue.

Kirby, being as transparent and forthright as only she could, admittedly was faced with one disheartening option.

Surely, it wasn’t the one about which she anticipated.

“After opening my first restaurant in the city of Memphis and failing, (shortly) thereafter I filed (Chapter 13) bankruptcy,” Kirby recalled.

Fortunately for Kirby, there ultimately had emerged a silver-lining to an entrepreneurship dream that had suddenly turned into a devastating nightmare.

HOW IT ALL WENT DOWN — “I was so excited, so I started repairing credit for others and adding tradelines to their credit worth,” Kirby explained while displaying her signature smile in the process. “In some cases, their credit scores increased by up to 80 points in 30 days.”

Months removed from having witnessed that sudden, yet untimely closing of her restaurant, Kirby was eventually left to assess the overall landscape of her young life, particularly from a financial standpoint.

As she tells it, in order for her to greatly savor the finer things in life, it was absolutely imperative that in the aftermath of that dreaded bankruptcy filing, she devise a plan to repair her credit.

All things considered, this progressive, assertive businesswoman wasted little time atoning for what had initially become a downtrodden occurrence in her life.

“I took it upon myself to repair my own credit,” Kirby said. “I gathered information from real estate agents, credit repair agencies and Google for help.”

TAKING IT ALL IN STRIDE — Months removed from having witnessed the sudden, yet untimely closing of her restaurant, Kirby was eventually left to assess the overall landscape of her young life, particularly from a financial standpoint.

As it turned out, one favorable thing eventually led to another.

It wasn’t long after Kirby had witnessed the shutdown of her business that she had ultimately became empowered to erase the memory of her unsatisfactory financial history.

Currently a resident of Roswell, Georgia Kirby has reemerged as a credit repair specialist who has become passionate about helping others rid themselves of their checkered credit past.

“I was so excited, so I started repairing credit for others and adding tradelines to their credit worth,” Kirby explained while displaying her signature smile in the process. “In some cases, their credit scores increased by up to 80 points in 30 days.”

STARING SUCCESS IN THE FACE — All things considered, this progressive, assertive businesswoman wasted little time atoning for what had initially become a downtrodden occurrence in her life. “I took it upon myself to repair my own credit,” Kirby said. “I gathered information from real estate agents, credit repair agencies and Google for help.”

Long before her business-oriented breakthrough came full circle, Kirby, once again, had to clear an assortment of hurdles which, realistically, made going after that which she desired well worth it.

“Honestly, throughout the journey, there were a few bumps in the road, but I was so anxious to be solid credit wise,” Kirby said. “Even though the bankruptcy cleared a lot of my debt, I was happy to send my discharge papers to all 3 bureaus,” Kirby said. “I began rebuilding my credit from there.”

It wasn’t long thereafter that Kirby, a University of Memphis graduate, began to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

For starters, she possessed three unsecured credit cards totaling in excess of $10,000 and paid them off within a span of 12 months.

DREAM CHASER — It wasn’t long thereafter that Kirby, a University of Memphis graduate, began to see the light at the end of the tunnel. For starters, she possessed three unsecured credit cards totaling in excess of $10,000 and paid them off within a span of 12 months.

“This helped (my credit) tremendously,” Kirby recalled.

As if that wasn’t enough to erase the memory of the restaurant shutdown, Kirby managed to purchase a brand new vehicle months later with what she described as an “amazing interest rate.”

Talk about a dramatic, epic financial comeback for the ages.

“I paid the same truck off within a year and my (credit) score just rose higher,” Kirby explained in telling a story that just keeps getting better.

Oh…she’d be remiss if she didn’t share this part of her tear-jerking testimony.

“By the end of the year, I had 8 credit cards totally a credit line of $30,000.”

Yep, as the old catchphrase goes, “Experience is the best teacher.”

No one, it seems, can attest to this thought-provoking, life-enhancing notion more than Kirby.

Greater Community COGIC’s the Bridge at ATL helping individuals achieve their post-high school educational goals while advancing the kingdom

BRIDGING A KINGDOM-BASED GAP — At the request of Greater Community Pastor Matthew Brown, TH.D., the Frederick and Samantha Walker in February 2017 assumed the monumental task of spearheading and relaunching the church’s Young Adult And College Ministry through an organization widely known as the Bridge at ATL. Having become a full fledge configuration on April 30, 2017, the BRIDGE’s primary emphasis is geared largely toward supporting young adults, particularly those as they navigate through their time of academic and/or vocational preparation toward their respective careers while enhancing their spiritual growth and faith walk, a spokesperson for GCC said.

MARIETTA, Georgia — Knowledge is power.

Surely, while we’ve all heard — or perhaps uttered — such a familiar catchphrase, as far as enriching and enhancing one’s life goes, Greater Community Church Of God In Christ’s mission includes, among other things, ensuring that its members thoroughly grasp the notion of just how powerful knowledge is — both in the spiritual and natural realms.

“In today’s society, social media is vital,” Greater Community member newcomer Minister Frederick Walker told Making Headline News during a recent interview.

And to GCC’s credit, Walker and his wife, Samantha Walker, are routinely devising ways to aid young adults mightily, particularly as it pertains to maximizing their potential by way of achieving their lofty educational goals and objectives.

At the request of Greater Community Pastor Matthew Brown, TH.D., the Walkers in February 2017 assumed the monumental task of spearheading and relaunching the church’s Young Adult And College Ministry through an organization widely known as the Bride at ATL.

Having become a full fledge configuration on April 30, 2017, the Bride at ATL’s primary emphasis is geared largely toward supporting young adults, particularly those as they navigate through their time of academic and/or vocational preparation toward their respective careers while enhancing their spiritual growth and faith walk, a spokesperson for GCC said.

For starters, the chief concept was to establish a young adult and college ministry, of sorts, one that would be accompanied by what the Walkers described as a “regional influence” while having a permanent establishment housed at nearby Kennesaw State University.

That, in a nutshell, was all a part of Pastor Matthew Brown’s vision from the outset.

Given the Bride at ATL is in its infancy, this organization is currently comprised of a little more than 50 enrollees, the Walkers said, although their regular discussion group via  GroupMe exceeds somewhere around 100 views, while their Facebook-based Inspirational and Life Skills videos customarily amass more than 1,000 views.

The rest, as they say, was history.

“Christian young adults are being connected with others who share the same Biblical beliefs, values and spiritual goal-building a strong community of support and encouragement,” said Samantha Walker, when asked what is especially intriguing about the Bride at ATL. “They are being inspired to grow in their faith and given opportunities to serve in ministry utilizing while enhancing the gifts God placed in them.

THE UNIVERSITY OF JESUS — With the oversight and guidance from Pastor Brown and the support of a solid and resourceful multi-generational team, the Bridge at ATL was officially approved as a chartered KSU-based organization in May 2017 and had effectively gone into operations approximately three months later. The rest, as they say, was history.

What’s even more astounding, Samantha acknowledged, is that the Godly witnesses of those enrolled in this institution essentially becomes more effectively, especially in this, our sometime controversial and divided modern-day church era.

WHAT ABOUT GREATER? http://www.greatercommunitycogic.org/

“They are being prepared to be more effective witnesses for Christ by expanding the Kingdom and being leaders in the marketplace, their communities and the church,” Samantha said.

GREATER IS COMING TO GREATER — Although this newly-established organization is a few months removed from his inception, it’s safe to assume that GCC’s the Bridge at ATL’s best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

Given the Bridge at ATL is in its infancy, this organization is currently comprised of a little more than 50 enrollees, the Walkers said, although their regular discussion group via  GroupMe exceeds somewhere around 100 views, while their Facebook-based Inspirational and Life Skills videos customarily amass more than 1,000 views.

Although this newly-established organization is a few months removed from his inception, it’s safe to assume that GCC’s the Bridge at ATL’s best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

“Let’s all do our part in outreach right here at home by encouraging our young adults whether they take a college path or a vocational one,” Frederick said. “Help us be the bridge that encourages and assists young adults to crossover into their God-given destiny by completing their degree programs or vocational training to have successful careers but, more importantly, help them become the church of today and tomorrow.”

Because after all, knowledge is power — both in the spiritual and natural realms.
