Atlanta-area Pastor Machele Pace’s new book provides brilliant insight on the benefits of prayer


Rejoice always; Pray without ceasing; In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NKJV)


STAYING PRAYED UP

WAR ROOM — A native of Pelham, Georgia, Machele Pace is the mastermind behind the newly-produced book entitled, “Prayer Primer For The Christian Devotionalist,” a spiritually-refreshing written work that made its official release in August 2019.

Notice, if you will, the two intriguing words that accompany Machele Pace’s name, particularly on her Facebook page:  Uncommon Favor.

For the record, there is a variety of reasons why this devout woman of faith deemed it essential to include those two words with her name.
“My life has always consisted of a life of prayer and expression of intimacy with God through relationship,” Pace told Making Headline News during a recent interview.
It is due in large part because of Pace’s immeasurable, bend-but-don’t break faith walk, coupled with her resilient prayer life that God has bestowed upon her — you’ve guess it — her share of uncommon favor.
So much, in fact, that this young preacher of the Gospel has been blessed to the add to her spiritual repertoire the proverbial Christian-based authorship title.

A native of Pelham, Georgia, Pace is the mastermind behind the newly-produced book entitled, “Prayer Primer For The Christian Devotionalist,” a spiritually-refreshing written work that made its official release in August 2019.

Approximately three months removed from having made her authorship debut, Pace is giddy of the fact that her vision to compose a compelling book has come full circle with God, her Helper, steering the way.

Having turned 47 on Tuesday (November 12), Pace has become a fixture on social media for leading regular prayers via Facebook Live.

A book she needed somewhere in the neighborhood of just 21 days to assemble, Pace has generated nothing short of favorable feedback since the release of “Prayer Primer For The Christian Devotionalist.”

“The vision came to write the book one day from people whom I would encounter in church or at gatherings, at work, or on social media who would let me know that they admired how I prayed, but they always ended with I wish I was disciplined to pray more,” Pace said. “So while I was in prayer, praying for believers to embrace more of a lifestyle of prayer, the Lord gave me (the vision) to write a practical guide to prayer.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

The beloved minster at Ahavah Christian Fellowship Church — a ministry that is centered on prayer, the word, worship and praise, and evangelistic outreach — Pace’s “Prayer Primer For The Christian Devotionalist” was assembled to accommodate the lifestyle of people from various walks of life, even those often find it difficult to established a solid prayer life.


“(I wrote this book) so that anyone — whether seasoned or a beginner in prayer — could have a tool that would help them better understand how to approach prayer and how to strengthen their prayer life,” Pace said. “Never forsake prayer. It does not matter where you are in life, you can and should always pray and you can always improve your prayer life and time with Father God.”


Pace thought it necessary to issue a warning, of sorts, to those who frequently abort their privilege to pray.

“Prayerlessness allows the enemy to gain advantages in our lives, but a life of prayer will give rise to the will of God that leads to purpose and destiny for our lives,” Pace explained. “Prayer is pretty powerful when we think about it.”

A book she needed somewhere in the neighborhood of just 21 days to assemble, Pace has generated nothing short of favorable feedback since the release of “Prayer Primer For The Christian Devotionalist.”

ON GOD’S BATTLEFIELD — The daughter of Pastor Jerome Pace and Everlene Mitchell of Pelham, Machele Pace received Jesus  Christ and became filled with the Holy Ghost at the tender age of 13.

“I am being told by those who have already purchased the book that it has caused them to see a different sensitivity to prayer; for others, it has helped them redevelop a prayer life with understanding, yet others it has helped them to pray from a different foundation of prayer helping them to mature their prayer life,” Pace said. “Some are even teaching their children through steps in the book that are very hands-on and easy to follow to develop a more stable and successful prayer life.”

Now that her authorship debut is effectively underway, Pace is destined to write Book No. 2 much sooner than later, a project that will also address the benefits of exemplifying a solid prayer life.

“I am working on another more in-depth prayer book that will consist of a book of prayers,” said Pace who typically hosts conferences that are geared toward the subjects that are addressed in her book. “I am also working on a book that is a self-help book that is based more on my professional training and knowledge. It will help many gain balance in critical life moments.”

She officially accepted her divine call to ministry in 1996 during which she had become a licensed minister under the leadership and spiritual covering of the late Apostle Dr. Leon Bryant Seymore of Jacksonville, Florida.

Two years later, Pace was installed as a Pastor under the same ministry for which she accepted her calling, a development that ultimately led to her becoming the Pastor of Ahavah Worship Center in Decatur, Georgia.

Approximately three months removed from having made her authorship debut, Pace is giddy of the fact that her vision to compose a book has come full circle with God, her Helper, steering the way.

Much to her delight, that God has strategically anointed Pace to become an author aligns with the purpose for which she was created. Pace’s ministerial career spans two decades.

“I believe that one of my God-given purposes in the earth is to lead people back to a place in God that is true and authentic through the platform of prayer…to help our generation understand why we pray and, most importantly, how to pray that we can be successful, praying prayers that will terminate the insults of the enemy of our souls as well as help us to freely move into our God-given destinies…to also pass to the next generation prayer as a staple in families and homes alike,” Pace said.

Talk about putting uncommon favor to good use.

Atlanta minister Jason Madison advancing the kingdom fervently through his immeasurable gifts


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)


MIGHTY MAN OF VALOR 

HE’S STILL STANDING — To his credit, coupled with the divine calling on his life, Jason B. Madison has virtually done it all as a catalyst on God’s battlefield, having served in a variety of roles, including an associate minister, youth pastor, executive pastor, not to mention a Senior Pastor.

Jason Madison could be appropriately described as a man of many hats, most notably in the Body of Christ.

Consider, for instance, his resourceful track record he’s compiled since he commenced to preaching the Gospel a little more than three decades ago.
“Through the years, I have served in many areas within the church body,” Madison told Making Headline News this week.
Having sold out completely to God at the tender age of 15, that is when Madison made his pulpit debut during which he preached his very first sermon.
He hasn’t looked back since.
To his credit, coupled with the divine calling on his life, Madison has virtually done it all as a catalyst on God’s battlefield, having served in a variety of roles, including an associate minister, youth pastor, executive pastor, not to mention a Senior Pastor.
A retired Navy solider, this Atlanta-based minister has found his niche as an accomplished actor, model, as well as a radio and podcast host.

Much to his delight, he’s now been blessed with the golden opportunity to span the globe, a trend that has, in a nutshell, given way to his immeasurable ministerial gifts making even more room for him.

“Currently, my ministry allows me to travel and minister to Pastors and their leaders,” Madison said. “My desire is to awaken the church leaders so they may effectively minister to those serving under them.”

A spiritual resume that has caused him to flourish — and blossom — mightily through his gifts, Madison also is armed with other talents.

Madison once served in Bishop Paul S. Morton’s Full Gospel Baptist Fellowship as the International Director of Customer Service.

A retired Navy solider, this Atlanta-based minister has found his niche as an accomplished actor, model, as well as a radio and podcast host.

“Being that I’m retired from the military, it gives me the opportunity to work and serve freely without having to worry about money,” said Madison, a native of Seattle who was spent a better portion of life in Macon, Georgia. “I loving being able to minister without worrying if I’m going to get another speaking engagement. I’m tired of seeing church members being misled or mistaught.”

For Madison, it is due in large part to his assortment of well-publicized gifts — coupled with his keen act of obedience unto God — that funding that about which God has ordained him to do is never really an issue.


AND THE BIBLE SAYS…

Consider, for instance, how this devout man of valor is presently making his presence felt in the stage play entitled, “Not All Wounds Heal” an event that is powered by EJP Productions and written by Elijah Parham.

A play that figures to have an influential impact within — and outside of — the walls of the church, Madison stars as the character, Pastor James Thomas, who consequently has put the church before his family. Interestingly, Pastor Thomas’ larger-than-life ego has gotten the best of him, at least until what he was preaching against subsequently invaded his own house.


“Acting is an entirely different animal,” Madison said. “I love stage plays over the small and big screen. Being in front of a live audience gives instant feedback. When you make a mistake, forget a line or one of the other cast slip-up, its shows your real skill in performing in front of others. The director can’t call, ‘Cut!’”


Not to be outdone, Madison’s modeling gifts have been as good as advertised, considering he’s been dubbed a featured model in the book, “The Perfect Marriage,” an awe-inspiring written work that’s written by Sharon Willingham and will scheduled to be released later this year.

This forthcoming book, Madison explained, highlights the story of a woman who survived domestic abuse.

All things considered, Madison’s laundry list of gifts and talents arose largely because of his presence and valiant contributions in the church.

“The passion behind my ministry is not wanting others to go through this cycle of a spiritual walk that only allows my faith walk to last a week,” Madison said. “My desire is have the church become more honest with how we teach and deliver God’s Word. Also, my passion is for leaders and helping them not to get burned out with grown the individual ministries.

A spiritual resume that has caused him to flourish — and blossom — mightily through his gifts, Madison also is armed with other talents.

“I been able to minister in small settings to large conferences,” continued Madison, adding that his passion for ministry came from his grandfather (who would customarily demand that he read Biblical passages and recite to him that about which he read). “I do have to admit: my personal favorite engagement was when Bishop Paul Morton ask me to preach at one of his services after the International Conference one year.”

Madison, in fact, served in Bishop Morton’s Full Gospel Baptist Fellowship as the International Director of Customer Service.

“We had just had a full week of conference duties and I was dog tired,” Madison said of his person encounter with Bishop Morton, a globally-acclaimed preacher, singer, songwriter, and author. “But when he asked, I jumped on it. I preached, ‘Don’t Throw In The Towel!’”

For Madison, it is due in large part to his assortment of well-publicized gifts — coupled with his act of obedience unto God — that funding that about which God has ordained him to do is never an issue.

Which, to Madison’s credit, coupled with the divine calling on his life, practically sum up why he could appropriately be described as a man of many hats.

That is, he was destined to never throw in the towel.

“There is a motto that I live my life by: ‘Never leave a person without having change their lives in some way’,” Madison said. “Did they laugh, cry, or learn something?”

Well said by this beloved, bigger-than-life spreader of the Gospel, who’s undoubtedly earned the right to pose these trio of questions.

To God be the glory.

Atlanta-area businesswoman Kenyatta Bell displaying agape love for millennials as catalyst for Epic Life Ministry


Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. (Philippians 2:3 KJV)


GOD’S EPIC PLAN 

DESTINY STEPS — A native of Gay, Georgia, Kenyatta Bell is the catalyst for the Epic Management Group, an Atlanta-area ministry that was spearheaded on IHeart Radio B96.3 and is aired all over a slew of airwaves.

Just before midday EST on Tuesday, Kenyatta Bell took to her Facebook timeline, where she staged a rather spirited, encouraging post.

Said Bell before her nearby 5,000 social media followers:
It’s a great day to have God’s perfect peace that surpasses our understanding. This joy I have.
To grasp a thorough concept of why Bell, a devout woman of faith, had deemed it essential to enlighten the masses of just how much God has infused her with the kind of joy the world didn’t merely give her, look no further than how her Creator has strategically set her aside for His use.

Widely regarded as Epic Life Ministry, this company has also launched a social media teaching — a segment that’s collectively conducted by Epic Life staffers Gina Beverly, Danielle Sunderhouse and Corey Watts — whereby it has garnered a global audience.

Interestingly, Epic Management Group has partnered with The Lighthouse Radio Station to host an array of what company officials describe as “epic life experiences,” most notably for middle and high school students.

“The uniqueness of my childhood, coupled with life experiences of my own children, want to ignite identities and empower purpose in the millennial generation,” Bell, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, when how her competitive drive in life propel her for her latest business venture. “(My personal mission is to) ignite the identity and empower the purpose in others.”

A graduate of Greenville (Georgia) High School, Bell advanced her education at nearby West Georgia Technical College of LaGrange, Georgia.

A TRUE ANGEL — Generally, the sustained success of Epic Life has come to fruition, in large part because of the one key fruit of the spirit that God commands us to fortify daily: love.

Consequently, she enrolled at American Intercontinental University of Atlanta.

A business venture that is centered largely on enriching and enhancing the lives of millennials, Bell is especially resourceful in that she has been passionate in her keen ability to help others discover — and reconnect with — the purpose for which they were created.


“I love the ability to help others know who they are in Christ and know there is a great purpose for their lives,” Bell emphasized. “My ministry is for everyone; however our target audience is the millennial generation.”


For what it’s worth, Bell’s organization, by all accounts, was birthed out of what obviously is a wealth of experience on her part.

Much to her delight, it is due in large part to her notable experience, coupled with her routinely exemplifying having a heart for people of all walks of life, that have fueled her fervent desire to help advance the kingdom for such a time as now.

“I personally know what it feels like to not know who you are and not be sure of your purpose,” Bell said. “I never want anyone to lack the knowledge of self-identity, worth, and purpose.”

“Lastly, He knew them when they were formed in their mom’s (womb) and He knows the plans that he has for them, declares the Lord…plans to prosper and not to harm, plans to give hope and a great future.”

Masterfully and eloquently said by this devout, big-hearted woman of faith, one who’s destined to savor a great day virtually every day — all the while harboring God’s perfect peace, the kind that surpasses our understanding.

Atlanta author Qshebra Taylor defies toughest of odds, assembles a book that figures to have global impact


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


UNSHAKABLE FAITH 

WOMAN THOU ART LOOSED — A native of Memphis who currently resides in Atlanta, Qshebra L. Taylor is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “T.R.U.E. SHADES OF H.E.R.: The Molding Matrimony of Healing, Expectations, Realizations.”

For Qshebra Latash Taylor, her God-assigned vision for composing her latest book was revealed some five years ago.

Much to her delight, such an adventure consequently had come full circle a year or so ago.
“The vision was given about five years ago, yet the clarification, hope, and strategies for writing the book were revealed about one year ago,” Taylor told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “I believe I was created to encourage, inspire, and empower individuals in ministry, personal life, and business.”
Fortunately for Taylor, an empowerment extraordinaire in her own right, she’s been greatly afforded the golden opportunity to have an influential impact on the lives of countless of individuals, most notably through her immeasurable gifts as an accomplished author.

A MUST READ — Interestingly, it wasn’t until after Taylor had rediscovered her God-given worth that she sensed full well that she had to move forward with “T.R.U.E. SHADES OF H.E.R.”

A book Taylor began assembling in January 2018 before the tragic death of her son — who was murdered in May 2018 — resulted in a temporary standstill with this project, “T.R.U.E. SHADES OF H.E.R.” was finally completed just last month.

The founder and CEO of BAMM EmpowerEment Ministries and All Visions Enterprise LLC, Taylor’s “T.R.U.E. SHADES OF H.E.R.” will be available to pre-sale order August 15.

The nationwide release for this book will take place on October 13.

Having produced seven written works dating back to 2015 with a few more on the horizon, Taylor is especially appreciative of the notion that she has finally gotten her latest published document completed, considering it comes amid arguably the darkest season of her life — a sometimes disastrous, stormy season whereby she has been equipped and molded to be used by God to help advance His kingdom unlike never before.


“As a vision coach and strategist, my heart’s desire is to help others to see insight beyond life’s ups and down,” said Taylor, providing a detailed synopsis of why she chose to write her latest book. “My greatest inspiration was after a conversation I remember having with my son.”


For Taylor, it was a life-altering dialogue by which she will recall for the rest of her life.

“He said he couldn’t see past the darkness — past decisions, choices, etc.,” Taylor explained. “I knew what that felt like when I was growing up in Memphis and it flowed into my life as an adult. The darkness became my norm and I was so afraid to live, pursue, and expect greater. This behavior allowed me to settle my whole life — friendships, relationships, partnerships, and leadership — and I was scared to accept who God said I was and what I could have.”


PRE-SALE ORDER QSHEBRA’S BOOK NOW

Having acknowledged that her past, by all accounts, had become what she describes as her “prison,” there was, in fact, somewhat of a silver-lining in the midst of what was seemingly nothing more than organized confusion in the life of this devout woman of faith whom, to her credit, was determined not to take defeat lying down.

Because of whom she is and because of where God is taking her, she had a few good reasons not to allow her faith to waver during a time it seemed on the brink of throwing in the towel.

But God…

“My past has become a molding platform to reintroduce who I was and who God called me to be,” Taylor said. “My past protected me as a survivor, but my future is calling forth me as a thriver.”

Interestingly, it wasn’t until after Taylor had rediscovered her God-given worth that she sensed full well she had to move forward with “T.R.U.E. SHADES OF H.E.R.”

“I started off writing about my healing to help others through their storms and later on turned into helping others see beyond their disappointments,” said Taylor, alluding to life-changing occurrences such as devastation, death, denial, and divorce or, as she specifically singles out, ‘two abusive husbands.’

“My grandma encouraged me to marry a man who I did not like just to say I am married and my children have a father,” Taylor continued. “And then I married again only to marry someone who was able to handle my right now, but not my future (he was “jealous and intimated of my ministry” she explained. “From the ministry of misery to the ministry of motivational matrimony.”

All things considered, Taylor would be the first to admit that she’s most grateful to Almighty God for complete restoration, for a new lease on life, if you will.

Fortunately for Taylor, an empowerment extradionaire in her own right, she’s been greatly afforded the golden opportunity to have an influential impact on the lives of countless of individuals, most notably through her immeasurable gifts as an accomplished author.

“I will no longer settle for anything or anyone less than what and who God has for me,” Taylor said without hesitation. “My son’s death has become the rebirth of who God has called me to be. God will use what you’ve gone through in the past and your right-now to build a wonderful masterpiece.

“All things work together,” added Taylor, now starting to sound alike seasoned evangelist. “When you know you are in God, it’s so easy to live according to God’s word so you can access God’s best.”

Having produced seven written works dating back to 2015 with a few more on the horizon, Taylor is especially appreciative of the notion that she had finally gotten her latest published document done, considering it comes amid arguably the darkest season of her life — a sometimes disastrous, stormy season whereby she has been equipped and molded to be used by God to help advance His kingdom unlike never before.

Despite all through which she has gone and survived, Taylor doesn’t shy away from the notion that she steadfastly heard God’s Voice loud and clear.

Therefore, she had no other choice but to react accordingly.

“(That is) returning back to my First Love. That’s God,” Taylor said without hesitation.

Once again.

Talk about exemplifying unshakable faith.

Georgia entrepreneur Nicole Wrice’s Magnolia Heart Nanny Services providing efficient childcare solutions


Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14 NIV)


PAYING IT FORWARD 

HEARTS OF GOLD — The proud founder and CEO of Magnolia Heart Nanny Services of Greater Atlanta, Nicole Wrice’s company is widely known for offering a full range of childcare solutions, accompanied by the goal of offering parents the peace of mind of hiring professional, trustworthy nannies and sitters who are passionate about the care and development of children

Some two years ago, Nicole Wrice discovered a need, particularly with regards to providing what she describes as quality care for children and families.

With God, her Helper steering the way, she has devised strategic and efficient ways to meet those needs.
“It isn’t really competition that drives me,” Wrice, a Columbus, Georgia-based businesswoman, told Making Headline News this week, when asked how her competitive drive in life propelled her for business venture. “I saw that there was a need of quality care for children and families that weren’t being met. I felt like someone had to offer more, to do it better…and I knew I could do it better. So I did.”
Indeed she has, having established a strategic and flourishing endeavor that is Magnolia Magnolia Heart Nanny Services of Greater Atlanta.

The proud founder and CEO of Magnolia Heart, Wrice’s company is widely known for offering a full range of childcare solutions, accompanied by the goal of offering parents the peace of mind of hiring professional, trustworthy nannies and sitters, who are passionate about the care and development of children.

Magnolia Heart Nanny Services of Greater Atlanta is located at 4 Bradley Park Court, Unit 2H.

“Whether parents are looking for a traditional nanny, a local babysitter for date nights, event childcare for a wedding, or backup childcare for employees, we are ready to connect them with a highly qualified caregiver to meet their unique needs,” said Wrice, 43, providing a detailed overview of Magnolia Heart.


DID YOU KNOW…

  • Magnolia Heart Babysitters  is a database that brings local parents and babysitters together, offering parents the peace of mind of hiring a Magnolia dedicated babysitter that has been fully screened, background checked, and CPR certified.
  • Munchkins Corporate Care is the newest addition to the Magnolia Heart family, and offers organizations from small businesses to fortune 500 companies the opportunity to increase employee productivity, morale, and retention by offering a competitive back up childcare plan for working parents.  We also provide on-site event care for conventions, conferences, and other corporate events and, 
  • Magnolia Heart Nanny Services  (or MHNS) works closely with families to find fully screened, professional nannies that meet the unique needs of each family. We do all the work, and you interview and select the candidate that will be the best fit for your family.

A company that went into full operations in 2017, Magnolia Heart featured ventures: Magnolia Heart Nanny Services, Magnolia Heart Babysitters, and Munchkins Corporate Care.

A native of Homerville, Georgia, Wrice emphasized, among other things, that her primary objective through her progressive, thriving business is to routinely provide families with the quality and efficient care they deserve.

“I like knowing that I am making difference in the lives of children, parents, and nannies,” Wrice said. “I like helping nannies to grow and develop their skills and hearing success stories of how much they love the children and family when I check in with them after placement.

IN THE NEWS — Much to their delight, Gene and Nicole Wrice are starting to generate mainstream media headlines for all the right reasons. Gene Wrice is a United State Army Major.

The more she witnesses and hears of these proverbial feel-good stories, the more she becomes overwhelmingly grateful of the notion that she’s walking in the divine purpose for which she was created.


“I love hearing success stories from parents and nannies, like the parents who told me that their child with special needs is happy and secure and able to participate in extracurricular activities with the help of his nanny, rather than being kicked out of day care centers,” Wrice recalled. “I’m excited to see employees strive for their potential and feel cared for when businesses and corporations offer backup care services.”


All things considered, providing what Wrice and staff dub as “total care” is absolutely essential, particularly as it relates to the sustained success of Magnolia Heart.

“Our nannies work with any age and we even offer adult special needs care,” said Wrice, adding that her company’s private and corporate events typically offer childcare to children ranging in the ages of eight weeks to 12 years old.”

Much to Wrice’s delight, greater things are on the horizon for her endeavor in the coming months, she said.

Amongst those is the startup of Magnolia Heart Senior Care, which is scheduled to officially go into operations sometime in 2020.

“Also, we work with nannies of all ages to place them with the right family — many are college students — but we also have former teachers, nurses, and even grandmothers,” Wrice said.

Wrice’s Magnolia Heart Nanny Services’ original site is based in Columbus, Georgia. Consequently, there eventually arose a high demand for a second office that’s housed in nearby Atlanta.

FAMILY FOCUS — A company that went into full operations in 2017, Magnolia Heart featured avenues include: Magnolia Heart Nanny Services, Magnolia Heart Babysitters, and Munchkins Corporate Care.

“Our event care nannies work throughout the southeastern United States,” Wrice said. “Our newest sister company, Munchkins Corporate Care, is ready to assist businesses with back up childcare for their employees nationwide.”

To her credit, Wrice boasts an array of experience, which has greatly enabled her to functioning mightily in her element as the face of Magnolia Heart, considering she’s a military spouse of 19-plus years and a working mother of seven children, one of whom is of special needs.

“I have decades of experience working in the childcare industry as a nanny for military families,” said Wrice, the former owner of Little Bizzy Bees Daycare who also boasts more than two decades of experience in the medical field.

“So I can accurately say I’ve spent most of my life focused on helping children grow, develop, and learn in a loving, safe environment. I personally understand the enormous obstacles that parents face when looking for reliable childcare, especially for children who have special needs,” continued Wrice, adding that she was inspired by her daughter with special needs and her late father to advance Magnolia Heart.

Interestingly, Wrice also credits her grandmother for having played an integral role in her entrepreneurship success.

“A lot of my passion comes from her,” Wrice said of her grandmother. “We have a large family.”

A little more than two years removed from having established what is shaping up to be a company whose best and brightest days are well ahead of it, Wrice doesn’t shy away from the notion that Magnolia Heart is positioning itself fervently to have a national impact — much sooner than later.

“Seeing the need for quality childcare for working families led me to start a full service nanny agency that has a business model focused on the well-being of both the family and the nanny,” she said. “We’re looking to do business with corporations. We offer corporate backup care and corporate on-site event childcare.”

That’s not all, Wrice acknowledged.

“We’re looking to do business with corporations through Munchkin Corporate Care and that’s where we do backup childcare for corporations and their employees,” Wrice added. “They can give us a call or they can request a meeting. We are nationwide for onsite event childcare and we are nationwide for corporate backup childcare.”

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.

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.

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.

Atlanta-area author Lisa Duffey takes another step toward her destiny in ‘I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2.’


I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. (Romans 8:18 NIV)


DALLAS — It was a rather turbulent, tumultuous, seemingly unbearable season in Lisa Duffey’s life, one in which it seemed far too insurmountable to bear at times.

“I got the vision about three years ago but never acted on it,” Duffey, an Atlanta-area author, told Making Headline News this week, recalling the memorable, emotionally-driven developments that led to her contributing to a soon-to-be released book. “It was just too painful. Then I began to see women coming out, talking about their experiences regarding sexual abuse and domestic violence.”


GOD’S VIRTUOUS WOMAN 

DESTINY STEPS — A native of Hempstead, New York, Lisa Duffey is among a dozen authors who assumed an immeasurable platform in the forthcoming book entitled, “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2.”

For Duffey, hearing other writers display a great deal of transparency regarding situations that essentially have shaped their lives for the better, in many aspects, fueled her desire to follow suit.

A native of Hempstead, New York, Duffey is among a dozen authors who assumed an immeasurable platform in the forthcoming book entitled, “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2.”

An awe-inspiring, spiritually gut-checking project that is forwarded by Atlanta-area empowerment coach and fellow author Dr. Carolyn Stephens, the sophomore edition of “I Am A Black Woman” is widely known as “One Voice” and addresses a variety of pertinent topics — most notably surviving divorce, sexual and physical abuse, broken identity, and mental illness, among other subjects.

 

For Duffey, that she was afforded the golden opportunity to share of her life-enhancing experiences in the second edition of this book, by all accounts, was a defining moments in the life of a woman who knows full well she’s been set aside for God’s use.

“I was approached by one of the co-authors and found out they were working on this project,” Duffey explained. “That is when I knew I wanted to be a part of it. I was ready to tell my story.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

That’s because not only has Duffey dauntlessly disclosed of her assortment of testimonies while fortifying pure boldness and confidence but, more than anything, it seems that joining forces with a gallery of Christian-oriented authors has become a clear path toward her purpose.

Her destiny, too.


FOR IT IS WRITTEN…

“I chose to write this chapter, because I needed to heal from past hurts — physically and emotionally — and also let other women know that this kind of behavior should not be tolerated from the men in their life,” said Duffey, recalling her stormy, tumultuous past that was mired by her being victimized by a dark season of child molestation.

“I put up with it from age 14 to 30.  As I began to put my story on paper, I realized I had things locked away in secret places in my mind, and as those places were opened, I began to forgive those that had hurt me.”

To her credit, the more she customarily grasped the power of forgiveness, the more she began to gain closure to those things that previously kept her bound.


THE FIGHT WAS FIXED

GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS — For Duffey, hearing other writers display a great deal of transparency regarding situations that essentially have shaped their lives for the better, in many aspects, fueled her desire to follow suit.

The more she began to gain closure to those things that previously kept her bound, the more God began to steer her toward her purpose.

The more God began to steer her toward her purpose, the more she began to discover just how much her immeasurable gifts were needed, particularly as it pertains to advancing the kingdom.

Look at her today, a true, big-hearted and devout woman of faith, pressing and navigating mightily toward her destiny for such a spirited, life-changing time as now.

Yep. That’s just like God.


“God has and is still using me to show empathy and compassion for women who have or are going through what I went through,” said Duffey, explaining how “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2” has become part of the purpose for which God has created her. “It’s easy to tell someone to leave a horrible relationship when they have not been through one. Since I been through it all, I get it…some women just can’t pick up and leave. They have to stay and endure the hardship and pain. Those on the outside should be there for them and not be judgmental.”


Now that she has steadfastly exercised her faith through the world of authorship, Duffey has acknowledged that other books are on the horizon, much sooner than later.

And with “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2” set to be released in the coming months, this brilliant and talent author has already become the beneficiary of an array of favorable feedback.

So much for the rather turbulent, tumultuous, seemingly unbearable season in her life, one in which it seemed far too insurmountable to bear at times.

That was then.

This is now.

STAY TUNED — Now that she has steadfastly exercised her faith through the world of authorship, Duffey has acknowledged that other books are on the horizon, much sooner than later.

A new season, accompanied by new memories, accompanied new mercies — with God, her Helper, leading the way.

“It’s been rough, watching my dad beat my mother constantly and trying kill her in front of us,” Duffey said. “Becoming a teenage girl and being beaten constantly, mistreated, beaten up, raped, sodomized…I can go on and on.  I felt hopeless.”

Still, amongst the things that Duffey has ultimately discovered is that in spite of her slew of hell and high water encounters, God had miraculous plans for her life.

“One day, I did a simple equation, 2-1=1,” Duffey recalled. “I realized that if I took myself out of the equation, that meant 1 less headache — the man in my life — and that’s what I finally did after so many years.  At 56 (years of age), I am married to a wonderful man. (I’m a) mother of six wonderful adult children, I have three stepchildren, 10 grandchildren, been on my job as a tax analyst for 32 years, and married to a wonderful man named Keith Duffey.”

Yep. That’s just like God, always providing for us an emphatic, memorable way of escape.
