South Carolina author Cherell Evans Latimer’s books empowering women to overpower domestic violence


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


IN A GOOD PLACE

ADVANCING THE KINGDOM — A book that Cherell Evans Latimer needed approximately six months to compose, this Greenville, South Carolina-based author deemed it essential to assemble “Castdown: God Remembers You” in large part because, according to her, we all have either met someone or have been in some form of domestic violence relationship.

Cherell Evans Latimer doesn’t shy away from the notion that she has a spiritual place.

As far as she’s concerned, she’s destined to go to great lengths to protect it all cost.

Consider, for instance, how Latimer’s proverbial spiritual place was essentially challenged, particularly during a time in which God was strategically positioning her to engage in a life-changing assignment.

As Latimer recalled, it all unfolded about a year or so ago.

“(In) January of 2018, I was focusing on my relationship with God more and more,” Latimer told Making Headline News this week. “I couldn’t find any books that interest me. I would usually read paranormal fictions, but they were disrupting my spiritual place.”

Ahhh…

GOD’S PLAN — A native of Muskegon Heights, Michigan — a rural establishment that rest in Muskegon County and is comprised of roughly 10,856 residents, according to the latest U. S. census — Latimer’s initial plan was to begin writing “Castdown: God Remembers You” at the beginning of last year, but the routine plans surrounding her wedding had caused a three-month delay.

So that is when Latimer had begun to witness her life’s much-anticipated turning point, one that had ultimately catapulted her to what undoubtedly has become a ceremoniously chapter in the process.

“When I searched for Christian fiction (books), I didn’t find anything that would keep me interested, so God gave me this story line,” Latimer said.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

FOR STARTERS — A businesswoman who works primarily from home as the owner of a health and wellness online shopping venture, Latimer also authored “The Wrong Kind Of Love: Defined By God,” a book that recalls what this writer describes as her “personal story and experience with domestic violence.” That book was published June 2017.

And just like that, Latimer had eventually emerged as the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Castdown: God Remembers You,” her spiritually-enhancing, thought-provoking project that is somewhere in the neighborhood of three months removed since it was officially published.

A book that Latimer needed approximately six months to compose, this Greenville, South Carolina-based author deemed it essential to assemble “Castdown: God Remembers You” in large part because, according to her, we all have either met someone or have been in some form of domestic violence relationship.

And here’s the real shocker that’s essentially crippling the modern-day church, according to this brilliant writer:


“It’s more stressful, it seems, for the married Christians,” Latimer said of the dreaded trend that is domestic violence. “Especially if you’re a pastor, deacon, or community leader. People that are well known are held to a higher standard and it would be world news if these private lives were exposed. I wanted to show people that God still hears and remembers you.  You may not see it, but He is working on your behalf.”

S. census — Latimer’s initial plan was to begin writing “Castdown: God Remembers You” at the beginning of last year, but the routine plans surrounding her wedding had caused a three-month delay.

VISION UNFOLDING — When asked what is the divine message she’s sending to her reading audience through her latest book, Latimer, a domestic violence survivor, eloquently said, “That God is real. His angels are real and there is life after domestic violence. My goal is to reach those that won’t go to church, but still love a good read…those that believe in God, but are still stuck in the world’s way of living. God can fix any mess you may be in.”

However, once she commenced to constructing a book that figures to impact countless of lives throughout the Body of Christ and can be purchased at https://acepublishing.org/, she was reminded, among other things, that God had essentially singled her out to write a book for such a critical time as now.

Now with “Castdown: God Remembers You” presently on the market, Latimer has announced that other books are forthcoming, most notably “Castdown 2: God Is Pleased,” which is projected to hit the market this summer.


WOMAN OF PURPOSE 

ARRANGED AND APPOINTED BY GOD — Latimer had eventually emerged as the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Castdown: God Remembers You,” her spiritually-enhancing, thought-provoking project that is somewhere in the neighborhood of three months since it was officially published.

To her credit, she’s become the beneficiary of some favorable feedback since the release of her latest book.

“(Check out the) reviews from amazon,” said Latimer, who has already taken part in a few book signings since the release of her latest written document. “(People say it is) easy read and the characters you care about. I love the intertwining of the Word with the storyline and characters, and (people are) looking forward to the next book. It’s a great book for women in similar situations.”

Because after all, our spiritual place somewhat by which we must protect at all cost.

Dallas/Fort Worth cosmetologist Reneé Heard displaying her immeasurable gifts as a passionate hairstylist


HAVEN’T Y’ALL HEARD? 

SMILE OF VICTORY — A native of Kansas City, Kansas, Reneé Monique Heard is an accomplished Dallas/Fort Worth-area hair stylist, who works as a full-time cosmetologist.

DALLAS — Sometime during the 8 o’clock hour Monday morning, Reneé Monique Heard arrived at Paul Mitchell The School in nearby Arlington, Texas, an institution that’s widely known for preparing its students — or “future professionals,” as they call them — for successful careers in the beauty industry.

Exemplifying such intensity for what she’s been blessed to do on the regular, Heard found her way to campus, displaying her customary spirited disposition.

“I absolutely love this place,” Heard wrote in a Facebook Check-In post that was read by her nearly 700 social media followers.

If nothing else, all Heard has done since bolting college prematurely was discover the purpose for which she was created.

For Heard, a 34-year-old rising businesswoman, the passion she routinely exhibits for her craft, by all accounts, undoubtedly is the primary factor for her sustained success in the ever-so-competitive cosmetology industry.

Although Heard’s decision to study Criminal Justice was short-lived — “I quit after the third semester,” she recalls — never did she lie dormant in her ability to broaden her horizon and maximize her potential.

If nothing else, all Heard has done since bolting college prematurely was discover the purpose for which she was created.

LEAST SHE FORGET — “I would say that growing up, I’ve always had a passion for (doing) hair,” Heard told Making Headline News this week. “It started when I was about 10. I wanted my hair braided so bad. My grandparents were raising me and they didn’t have the money at the time.”

A native of Kansas City, Kansas, Heard is an accomplished Dallas/Fort Worth-area hair stylist, who works as a full-time cosmetologist.

“I am 34 years of age and very passionate about my craft,” Heard says without hesitation.

As Heard explained, her passion for helping clients look their best dates back to her childhood days of growing up in Kansas.

REROUTING — Although Heard decision to study Criminal Justice was short-lived — “I quit after the third semester,” she recalls — never did she lie dormant in her ability to broaden her horizon and maximize her potential.

“I would say that growing up, I’ve always had a passion for (doing) hair,” Heard told Making Headline News this week. “It started when I was about 10. I wanted my hair braided so bad. My grandparents were raising me and they didn’t have the money at the time.”

Although her grandparents didn’t have the funds to pay for her to get the hairstyle she so desperately wanted, Heard did what any opportunistic youngster is supposed to do.

She began to think outside the box and devised her own way to make it happen.

To her credit, she’s been making it happen ever since, all the while finding her niche as a resourceful hairstylist in the process.


SKILLZ ON FLEEK 

BACK WHERE IT ALL STARTED — As Heard explained, her passion for helping her clients look their best dates back to her childhood days of growing up in Kansas.

“I took the few dollars I had and went to the hair store and got some hair, and that’s when my experimenting started,” said Heard, explaining how she had initially discovered her craft for braiding her. “I braided my own hair and I did really well.”

Much to her delight, it wasn’t long thereafter that Heard’s immeasurable hair-styling gifts had become the talk of the town.

“Then my aunt came (and then) I started doing my cousins’ hair and then others,” Heard said. “That’s where I learned and that’s when I knew that I was going to be in this profession. And then along the way my passion left.”

Amongst the pivotal things Heard had ultimately discovered is that connecting with her purpose is much more refreshing and therapeutic than working some dead end job that wasn’t merely adding any value to her life.

Having admittedly to have “avoiding my calling,” it seemed that everywhere Heard had gone, her expertise essentially had come running after her.

“Throughout life, no matter where I went, (my desire to do) hair always followed me,” Heard said. “I moved to Arizona, back home (to Kansas), and then Texas. I seemed to always run from it…avoiding my calling and ignoring what God had for me. I knew I was destined to do something else besides hair. I just knew it. No matter what road I took in trying to pursue something else, I would always run into this brick wall…and hard too.”

At some point doing her sometimes rocky journey, when Heard had finally elected to stop running from that which God called her to do, that is when her Creator began to enlarge her territory, thus catapult to her divine destiny for such a time as now.

Having admittedly to have “avoiding my calling,” it seemed that everywhere Heard had gone, her expertise essentially had come running after her.

Never mind that while finding her way in this thing called life, she had to settle for working in a call center, during which she recalled having become “completely miserable and irritated with the fact that I have this amazing talent I’m working at it every now and then.”

Heard, in fact, sensed that something had to give.

Eventually.

And fast.

With no additional time to waste.


“I’m going to this 9-to-5 (job) every day and it just wasn’t cutting it. It was hard for me to get up every day at 6 a.m. to go to work and be there by 8 a.m. But it was so easy for me to get up on Saturday at 4:15 a.m. My first client was as early as 5 a.m., and I could do hair all day and make people feel good. I would be on my feet from sun up to sun down into the next morning with no problem.” — Reneé Monique Heard 


DESTINY STEPS UNFOLDING — For Heard, a 34-year-old rising businesswoman, the passion she routinely exhibits for her craft, by all accounts, undoubtedly is the primary factor for her sustained success in the ever-so-competitive cosmetology industry.

Because amongst the pivotal things Heard had ultimately discovered is that connecting with her purpose is much more refreshing and therapeutic than working at some dead end job that wasn’t merely adding any value to her life.

How else to explain why she arrived to campus Monday morning, displaying her customary spirited countenance.

“I absolutely love this place,” Heard wrote in a Facebook Check-In post that was read by her nearly 700 social media followers.

She sure does.

Now we know why.

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.

Quincy, Massachusetts-based businesswomen defy greatest of odds, collectively establish a thriving venture

Donya. Alina.

Alina. Donya.

Together, they deemed it essential a little more than a year ago to combine their immeasurable business-related skills and establish a credible, thriving, progressive venture, one that figures to benefit others mightily in this ever-so-competitive entrepreneurship industry.

MAKING THEIR DREAMS REALITIES — Donya Zimmerman and Alina Lopez Thomas are the proud founders of the Ultimate Biz Conference (or UBC), their Quincy, Massachusetts-based venture they organized for the sole purpose of combining their resources as a unique, strategic way grow what they described as their mutual businesses.

“The purpose of the Conference is to educate aspiring entrepreneurs and small businesses on the importance of building a strong legal and financial foundation to sustain their business,” Donya Zimmerman told Making Headline News during a recent interview.

The Conference to which Zimmerman and Alina Lopez Thomas are alluding is the Ultimate Biz Conference (or UBC), their Quincy, Massachusetts-based venture they organized for the sole purpose of combining their resources as a unique, strategic way grow what they described as their mutual businesses.

CHILL MODE — According Zimmerman and Thomas, UBC is extremely credible and beneficial in that it is widely regarded as an effective, rewarding, life-enhancing networking event to attend.

An up-and-coming business that essentially is in its infancy stages, the Ultimate Biz Conference’s chief objective is geared largely toward educating entrepreneurs on how to cover their assets while running the day-to-day operations of their respective business.

According Zimmerman and Thomas, UBC is extremely credible and beneficial in that it is widely regarded as an effective, rewarding, life-enhancing networking event to attend.

“As a networking event, one is able to connect with potential business partners and collaborators to grow your business,” Thomas said.

For what it’s worth, credit the competitive drive of this dream team tandem of businesswomen that greatly fueled their desire to erect what undoubtedly is a rather appealing business for like-minded entrepreneurs.

Both of whom admittedly were once hampered by fear and frustration over the state of their respective careers, Zimmerman and Thomas had ultimately felt a divine connection, of sorts, given their similar business-oriented backgrounds.

As a result and much to their delight, it’s safe to assume that not only were they on to something potentially profitable but, most importantly, it seemed that one favorable thing had led to another.

Having been forced to unceremoniously vacate the careers they loved dearly and gave their “whole lives” to, the co-founders of UBC were — as they explained — backed into a corner, unable to find full-time employment anywhere.

Still, in spite of the few stumbling blocks they encountered while trying to re-invent themselves, there arose a silver lining, of sorts which, fortunately for them, practically sums up why their entrepreneurship tandem makes all of the sense in the world.

These business duo, in fact, don’t shy away from the notion that they had no choice but to turn their gifts and talents into a profitable business.  Having initially crossed paths at during an event in Quincy, Zimmerman and Thomas had collectively come to grips that forming the Ultimate Biz Conference was absolutely essential.

So here they are today, basking in the glory of the moment, one about which they are responsible for starting in the first place.

By and large, amongst the things about which Ultimate Biz Conference has done for Zimmerman and Thomas is afford them the golden opportunity to use their failures as a teaching tool, of sorts, a trend from which aspiring entrepreneurs can learn.

Also, their Ultimate Biz Conference 2018 will be held on April 19-21 in nearby White Plains, New  York at the Cambria Hotel And Suites. Accompanied by the theme, Think Like a CEO and Act Like a CEO, this 2 ½-day conference will prepare aspiring entrepreneurs to open their business doors in 2018 and beyond.  Tickets for the event can be purchased at www.ultimatebizconference.com.

“What I like most about being in my own business is simple,” Thomas said. “Doors that were previously shut have now been opened.  My mind has expanded into a different field and I’m the product of my mission.  The building of business relationships and making connections with other like-minded individuals.”

NATIONAL IMPACT — A nationally-acclaimed business that is enjoying considerable growth since its much-anticipated inception on November 15, 2017, UBC caters mostly to aspiring entrepreneurs who are ready to start their own business or individuals who have been in business for less than five years, not to mention a business that is in need of a much-needed makeover, Zimmerman and Thomas emphasized.

Zimmerman essentially echoed that about which Thomas eloquently professed.

“I love the fact that I have been able to turn my mess of losing my law practice into a powerful message of redemption,” Zimmerman said. “I have been able to ensure that aspiring entrepreneurs learn the importance of covering their assets while in business.  Also, I’ve been able to educate small businesses on how to be prepared for the what-ifs in business.”

PASSING ALONG WHOLESOME KNOWLEDGE — By and large, amongst the things about which Ultimate Biz Conference has done for Zimmerman and Thomas is afford them the golden opportunity to use their failures as a teaching tool, of sorts, from which aspiring entrepreneurs can learn.

Moreover, because of this ever-so-popular social media era, the UBC founders have been able to witness and savor continuous progress with their business, which means its best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

“(Our) mission is to turn the Ultimate Biz Conference into an international phenomenon where we will create a world full of entrepreneurs and small business owners,” Zimmerman and Thomas said. “One goal of Ultimate Biz Conference is to help individuals understand that they are in control of their own destiny when it comes to becoming small business owners.”

Just as this solid tandem of businesswomen were when they elected to join forces and establish what is shaping up to be a thriving, booming venture.

Today, unlike never before, this dynamic duo seems very much inseparable.

Talk about controlling their own destiny.

Delaware-based author Prophetess Vanessa Johnson Brinkley advancing the kingdom mightily through her new books

“A MAKING HEADLINE NEWS SUPER BOWL WEEKEND EXCLUSIVE”

 

EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the first of Making Headline News’ two-part series on Delaware author and businesswoman Vanessa Johnson Brinkley. 

 

Just past the bottom of the 11 o’clock hour EST Friday night, Prophetess Vanessa Johnson Brinkley took to her Facebook page to enlighten her 4,900-plus social media friends about the latest developments surrounding her success as an accomplished author.

HANDPICKED BY GOD — To her distinctly unique credit, Vanessa Johnson Brinkley is steadfastly going to great lengths to help other believers connect with the purpose for which God created them, mostly through her books, Unlocking The Gift Of Salvation and Walking In My Identity.

“Family, friends, and the Body of Christ. My husband and I are releasing our new books, and we want everyone to get this good news into their hands and into their spirits,” Johnson Brinkley, a Delaware resident, wrote. “We’re sowing seeds back into the Kingdom. Please don’t miss your chance of investing into the Kingdom.”

To grasp a thorough concept of why Johnson Brinkley deems it imperative to routinely devise ways to advance the kingdom — particularly through her gift as an author — look no further than two previous books she’s written, both of which are transforming lives, thus drawing the masses closer to Christ.

“There were so many women reaching out to me to help them find themselves and wanting to know their purpose as well as to know the depth of salvation beyond the born-again experience,” Johnson Brinkley said during an interview this week with Making Headline News.

To her distinctly unique credit, Johnson Brinkley is steadfastly going to great lengths to help other believers connect with the purpose for which God created them, mostly through her books, Unlocking The Gift Of Salvation and Walking In My Identity.

Johnson Brinkley’s initial book, which is currently on the market, provides detailed analysis and facts on the gift of salvation that was given to us to open, explore and experience, most notably what she describes as the doctrine of man and religious teachings taught us — or, as she so eloquently says, “to just unravel the bowtie (or the born-again experience) of the Gift and not to open the package.”

Not only that, in Johnson Brinkley’s Unlocking The Gift Of Salvation, she appropriately uncovers what are known as detrimental truths about the gift of salvation.

“This book leaves you in a position for the Holy Spirit to teach you on how to unlock what’s in the gift of salvation package,” says a spokesperson for Johnson Brinkley’s book in a formal description at https://www.barnesandnoble.com/.

Interestingly, this New York City native began composing Unlocking the Gift of Salvation in May 2015 and needed a little more than two years to complete it.

STAY TUNED — Besides Unlocking The Gift Of Salvation, Johnson Brinkley is the catalyst of Walking In My Identity, a co-authored and inspiring written document that scheduled to be released in March 2018.

“For so many years, we have been bound by just the born-again experience of this gift and guess what? This is your season and moment in time to uncover the precious jewels of such a powerful gift,” Johnson Brinkley emphasized in a description of her book at https://www.barnesandnoble.com/. “Through this powerful book, you will be ignited with a Holy Ghost fire and boldness that will cause you to not be so easily shaken in this world. Come let’s go and uncover what has long been waiting for you!”

Besides Unlocking The Gift Of Salvation, Johnson Brinkley is the catalyst of Walking In My Identity, a co-authored and inspiring written document that is scheduled to be released in March 2018.

SPIRITUAL GIFTS EXPOSED — Johnson Brinkley’s initial book, which is currently on the market, provides detailed analysis and facts on the gift of salvation that was given to us to open, explore and experience, most notably what she describes as the doctrine of man and religious teachings taught us — or, as she so eloquently says, “to just unravel the bowtie (or the born-again experience) of the Gift and not to open the package.”

“(In) Walking In My Identity, my chapter entitled, ‘Mistaken Identity, Lost Identity, Resurrected Identity: There Is Resurrection In Tragedies,’ were started in October 2017 and finished in December 2017,” said Johnson Brinkley, providing her readers with a preview of what they can expect in her forthcoming project.

By and large, amongst the things about which Johnson Brinkley is thoroughly convinced is that the purpose for which she assembled her books have — and are — being fulfilled.

“There is so much more to salvation than the born again experience,” Johnson Brinkley said. “There is life where you experience nothing missing and nothing broken in spite of what’s going on around you.  For Walking In My Identity, the divine message from my chapter is to not allow the tragedies in your life to define who you are.”

DESTINY STEPS — By and large, amongst the things about which Johnson Brinkley is thoroughly convinced is that the purpose for which she assembled her books have — and are — being fulfilled.

When asked to assess the feedback she’s garnered by way of her books, Johnson Brinkley said, “Unlocking The Gift of Salvation has garnered life changing feedback. (One reader said): ‘It has opened my eyes to things I thought I knew but really didn’t connect the true meanings of the word.  I am equipped and dressed for success! My armor is on and full speed ahead! Thank you for all the encouraging words and testimonials! I was blind and now I see!’”

Also, with a few scheduled public appearances during which she will promote her books, Johnson Brinkley announced that four additional books are on the horizon and are scheduled to hit the market by year’s end.

SHE AIN’T DONE — With a few scheduled public appearances during which she will promote her books, Johnson Brinkley announced that four additional books are on the horizon and are slated to hit the market by year’s end.

These books are:

The Fight Is Fixed (Book Collaboration)

Get Me To Midnight

#Rediscoveringme: Kingdom Access and

The Fight Is Fixed: “Exposure.”

“These books help to birth and bring about the purpose in my life to help other hurting, dis-attached and broken women,” said Johnson Brinkley, explaining how her books are in alignment with the purpose for which God has created her. “They are my life testimonies of how to overcome and live life victoriously. These books help me to be a prophetic voice to a nation of women.”

To God be the glory.

Atlanta-area author Anika Ennett heeds advice of stepfather, assembles three compelling books

As the old catchphrase goes, “Mom knows best.”

For Anika Ennett, she can greatly attest that perhaps “Stepfather knows best” as well.

TRIO OF SUCCESS — Regardless of her circumstances at the time, what mattered, really, is that Virginia-based Author Ennett not only heeded the advice of her stepfather, but she took his words and wisdom and essentially ran with them. So much, in fact, that she has managed to author not one, not two, but three books.

Consider, for instance, how many years ago, Ennett recalls vividly an in-depth conversation she had with her stepfather whom, much to her delight, played an integral role with regards to helping her connect with her vision as an accomplished author.

“During that conversation, he said, “You should write a book one day,’” Ennett, who resides in Atlanta, said this week during an interview with Making Headline News. “And I said, ‘I have no idea how to write a book.’ And he said, ‘Just write…don’t worry about format, just write.’  Fast forward many years later and the thought came back up during a time when things were not at their best.”

Regardless of her circumstances at the time, what mattered, really, is that Ennett not only heeded the advice of her stepfather, but she took his words and wisdom and essentially ran with them.

So much, in fact, that she has managed to author not one, not two, but three books.

In June 2015, for instance, she witnessed the much-anticipated release of her first book entitled, He S.A.W. Me!  Saved, Anointed & Walks With Me, a compelling written document that depicts a vital chapter in Ennett’s life, most notably the assortment of challenges she endured during the past three decades or so. In a detailed synopsis of Ennett’s book at Amazon.com, it reveals that her slew of testimonies surfaces largely as a result of her walk through what she describes as many dark days, not knowing who she was, all while pressing and navigating her way through the pain of rejection on many levels — low self-esteem being one of them — en route to her fully connecting with a newfound disposition on life (most notably what she labels a new perspective of how God sees her).

Then in September 2017, she authored the book entitled, Sometimes Life Has No Chill, which is a rather intriguing, provocative devotional dedicated to teenage girls.

According to an Amazon.com spokesperson for Ennett’s Sometimes Life Has No Chill, this book is widely regarded as an interactive, daily devotional, of sorts, one that addresses real life issues, all while offering solutions and allowing youths to reflect on their decisions, thus taking accountability for their own actions.

“I want our youth to get in the habit of thinking situations completely through and making informed decisions when it comes to their lives,” Ennett said of her second book.

Then there is Ennett’s latest book entitled, The Struggle Is Real: Healing For Survival, which officially made its presence on the market just last month.

“Just when you thought you had it all together, you know that you have changed, because you have the scars to prove it,” Ennett writes in a description of her latest book at Amazon.com. “Now, you’re ready to go forward in life in your marriage, business, ministry, job etc., but something else happens. Not only are you angry because you feel betrayed, but you’re confused because you are feeling some of those old emotions from the past that you knew you had taken care of.”

With three books — and counting — under her belt, Ennett doesn’t shy away from the notion that she is presently walking in the purpose for which God created her.

After all, mom knows best.

And so does stepdad as she had ultimately discovered.

“I still didn’t know where to start, because I was broken inside and I remember constantly praying and asking God to send someone in my life that could teach me more about God and He did just that,” Ennett, a native of Philadelphia, explained.

GOD’S SPOKESPERSON — As for the direct messages she aims to send to her reading audience, Ennett said, “One of the most important messages that I’m trying to get across is that women don’t have to suffer in silence and shame.  Shame keeps most people from receiving healing and that is a lie straight from the enemy.  You may have heard (the saying) ‘We are only as sick as our secrets’ So often as women, we try to live up to the expectations of society, our spouses, family and will turn ourselves inside out, just to be accepted.  Women are emotional creatures and we absorb so much from the world and when you are not healed from past experiences, it results in a mess. “

Interesting, the more godly wisdom she acquired, the more she began to witness her gift for writing come to fruition.

“I met a strong woman of God that began to teach me about God and who helped me tremendously during some of the most challenging times in my life,” Ennett said. “The prophetess encouraged me, walked with me, and confirmed a lot of things about me and helped me to see the gifts that the Lord had given me. All it took was encouragement, teaching and building my relationship with God.”

As for the direct messages she aims to send to her reading audience, Ennett said, “One of the most important messages that I’m trying to get across is that women don’t have to suffer in silence and shame.  Shame keeps most people from receiving healing and that is a lie straight from the enemy.  You may have heard (the saying) ‘We are only as sick as our secrets’ So often as women, we try to live up to the expectations of society, our spouses, family and will turn ourselves inside out, just to be accepted.  Women are emotional creatures and we absorb so much from the world and when you are not healed from past experiences, it results in a mess.

GOOD OLE DAD — Ennett recall vividly an in-depth conversation she had with her stepfather whom, much to her delight, played an integral with regards to helping her connect with her vision as an accomplished author.

“In addition to that, we want to fix everything and everybody but never want to fix ourselves,” Ennett continued. Unfortunately, sometimes we become martyrs and then become weighed down with the pressures of the world and then we don’t take time out to deal with the things that are tearing us down.”

When asked in what ways has her books become part of the purpose for which God has created her, Ennett, as forthrightly as she could be, wasted little time paying homage to her Creator.

“These books have taught me that I’m not a lost cause, neither are any other women that may be having a difficult time,” Ennett said. “The transparency that I display in my books foster an environment of understanding and it breaks the wall of shame down. My goal is to encourage other women to get healing and to stop hiding behind the pain.  The goal of the teen devotional is to open a dialogue between a daughter and her mother and guardian.”

Because after all, as the old catchphrase goes, “Mom knows best.”

Then aganin, for Anika Ennett, she can greatly attest that perhaps “Stepfather knows best” as well.

Chesapeake, Virginia author Charmin Y. Anderson writes awe-inspiring book, quickly emerges on Amazon Best Seller list

We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves. (Romans 15:1)

 

For what’s it worth, Charmin Y. Anderson is widely regarded as a person who goes to great lengths to reach back and diligently aid others to reconnect with their God-given worth, all while maximizing their full potential.

VISION UNFOLDING — Once a domestic abuse victim who can fully attest what it’s like to defy arguably the toughest of odds, author Charmin Y. Anderson, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, spoke in detail about how God had strategically given her the vision to make her much-anticipated authorship debut, one that was culminated with the inspiring book entitled, Behind My Smile: Every Woman’s Worst Nightmare.

Credit her emotional, life-enhancing testimony as the single, most underlying reason why.

Once a domestic abuse victim who can fully attest what it’s like to defy arguably the toughest of odds, Anderson, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, spoke in great detail about how God had strategically given her the vision to make her much-anticipated authorship debut, one that was culminated with the  inspiring book entitled, Behind My Smile: Every Woman’s Worst Nightmare.

Powered by Cannon Publishing, Anderson’s Behind My Smile: Every Woman’s Worst Nightmare depicts this writer’s assortment of tear-jerking experiences, most notably those whereby the victims’ gruesome and dreaded circumstances could potentially lead to them making the kind of choices that could ultimately cause their paths in life to change substantially, as mentioned in a detailed description of Anderson’s book at Amazon.com.

“Regardless, it takes unwavering courage to be able to admit that the choices you chose that impacted the lives of the people you love the most were wrong,” said a spokesperson for Anderson’s book that was officially released in September 2017.

All things considered, what’s so astounding about Anderson’s Behind My Smile: Every Woman’s Worst Nightmare is that her 68-page written document is dominated by an array of transparency, a trend she’s persuaded will enrich and inspire others mightily, especially those who share similar encounters as this New Jersey-born writer and businesswoman.

“Truth is, hiding behind my choices caused more pain than being honest,” Anderson explained. “I allowed fear to marinate and take root in places in my life because keeping secrets was a program that was embedded in me years ago. However, every program can be rewritten and updated.”

KEEPIN’ IT REAL — All things considered, what’s so astounding about Anderson’s Behind My Smile: Every Woman’s Worst Nightmare is that her 68-page written document is dominated by an array of transparency, a trend she’s persuaded will aid and inspire others mightily, especially those who share similar encounters as this New Jersey-born writer.

Regardless, Anderson, even to this very day, can boldly profess that she has reaped the favorable results she so desperately sought, thanks in large part to her quest to conquer and outlast the spirit of fear.

“Program Fear has been terminated and replaced with the program called Freedom,” Anderson customarily says with such humility and humbleness.

More than anything, Anderson emphasized, she’s destined to help impact lives through her new book — you know, to bear the infirmities of the weak, as God’s commands us through His life-enhancing word.

“I want to let every woman who has been through domestic violence or any form of abuse to know that they are not alone,” said Anderson, who currently resides in Chesapeake, Virginia. “In my book, I opened up and became vulnerable to the world by standing up against fear.”

As for the feedback she’s garnered since the release of her new project, it’s safe to assume that Anderson surely did not disappoint, considering she was thrust upon the Amazon Best Seller list within a span of roughly 15 minutes after the release of her book.

“Everyone who has given me feedback loved it,” Anderson said. “(And) I have been booked multiple times for speaking engagements.”

Interestingly, Anderson announced that her second book is presently in the works. The title: When Dead Flowers Still Bloom.

YOU GO GIRL!!! As for the feedback she’s garnered since the release of her new project, well, it’s safe to assume that Anderson surely did not disappoint, considering she was thrust upon the Amazon Best Seller list within a span of roughly 15 minutes after the release of her book.

Also, her latest speaking engagement pertaining to her book is scheduled for this weekend in Charlotte at the Unmasking The Truth About Domestic Violence event.

“My assignment is to help others help others by sharing my story,” Anderson said. “Telling my story is a struggle and I still cry sometimes. But if I can inspire and empower someone to help someone else, then a community of movement takes place. What would happen if we could activate and build a movement of movement?”

Not to mention bear the infirmities of the weak, as God’s commands us through His life-enhancing word?

Four-time Amazon bestselling author Elona Washington making her presence felt courtesy of two awe-inspiring books

If you listen to Elona Washington talk long enough about her successful tenure as an accomplished, progressive author then, chances are, it wouldn’t take very long to grasp the notion that writing is something about which she had become passionate since she was too young to remember.

A TRUE INSPIRATION — A native of Washington, D. C., Author Elona Washington deemed it essential to finally share of her emotional, yet spiritually gut-checking experiences through her featured book entitled, From Ivy League To Stripper Life, a memoir that chronicles how her life spiraled out of control, coupled with the valiant lessons she learned along the way. Washington was also the catalyst of How Divorce Became My Deliverance, a September 2017 released anthology that Washington assembled along with a number of other accomplished authors.

“I was given the vision to tell my story as a kid and I would start but never finish,” Washington told Making Headline News during an interview this week. “I was too scared.”

Out of fairness to Washington, there is, by all accounts, a rather justifiable reason why she spent a better portion of her life gripped and saddled by fear.

“I’ve been a victim of child sex abuse since the age of five,” Washington said without hesitation. “The abuse first occurred in (Washington) D. C., and it happened again when my sister and I went to live with our mom in Princeton (New Jersey).”

As Washington vividly recalls, she encountered as many as 10 sexual abusers by the time she had turned 10 or, as she disclosed, men and boys from two different cities, all of whom never knew each other, a few of whom were well over 30 years of age.

A native of Washington, D. C., Washington deemed it essential to finally share of her emotional, yet spiritually gut-checking experiences through her featured book entitled, From Ivy League To Stripper Life, a memoir that chronicles how her life spiraled out of control, coupled with the valiant lessons she learned in the process.

A 138-page written document that officially hit the market in June 2016, Washington’s From Ivy League To Stripper Life also recalls her assortment of childhood memories, most notably those true stories from within the walls of the dreaded strip club, as well as resourceful tips and life lessons she eloquently offers to every wife, mother, and single woman.

“In these pages, you may even discover that it’s possible what you’re going through has been assigned to you,” said a spokesperson in a detailed description of Washington’s book at Amazon.com.

STILL SHE RISE — Interestingly, Washington sensed that because of the constant sexual abuse she endured as a child, she wasn’t merely equipped to become a product of her environment, particularly as it relates to advancing her education on what many consider to be college’s biggest stage.

All things considered, Washington, a native of D. C., admittedly sensed that all of her sexual abuse encounters were self-manufactured.

“I thought the abuse was my fault,” Washington said with a straight face and without hesitation. “There was something about me that made men want to have sex with me. “I thought I wasn’t protected and favored by God, so and I was meant to be nothing but a stripper.”

Interestingly, Washington sensed that because of the constant sexual abuse, she wasn’t merely equipped to become a product of her environment, particularly as it relates to advancing her education on what many consider to be college’s biggest stage.

“I wasn’t smart like my Ivy League mom and stepdad,” Washington said. “My younger sister was just as smart and it made me feel like I didn’t belong.”

And then there is Washington’s latest book entitled, How Divorce Became My Deliverance, a September 2017 released anthology that Washington assembled along with a number of other accomplished authors.

BUY ELONA’S OTHER BOOK HERE: http://elonawashington.com/product/how-divorce-became-my-deliverance/

SIGN OF THINGS TO COME — A four-time award-winning bestselling author, Washington has announced that other books are on the horizon much sooner than later.

Generally, because researchers estimate that marriages have somewhere in the neighborhood of a 50 percent survival rate, Washington and eight other divorcees have joined forces to share how they collectively mourned the loss of their marriage and ultimately conquered their pain, as revealed in a detailed description of this 157-page anthology.

“As long as we have breath in our bodies, we will experience pain,” said Washington, explaining the divine message she aspires to send to her audience through her books. “The divine message is that you can live free from the pain of your past. We can’t run from it or suppress it. When you do, it shows up as anger, depression, etc., and that has the ability to affect every area of your life.”

After all, Washington specifically emphasized, chronic anger, coupled with resentment can greatly affect one’s physical health, thus causing heart disease, high blood pressure,  some form of a  stroke and, perhaps insomnia.

“Learning to let it go helps us to live freely,” Washington said.

When asked in what ways her books align with the purpose for which God has created her, Washington said, “There are no accidents. God chose me to go through it all. But He also gave me the strength and courage to endure and share my story to help others.”

More than anything, Washington reiterated, sharing her slew of experiences essentially infused within her the keen ability to break the dreaded generational curses that include, among other things, single motherhood and teen pregnancy.

SET ASIDE FOR GOD’S USE — When asked in what ways her books align with the purpose for which God has created her, Washington said, “There are no accidents. God chose me to go through it all. But He also gave me the strength and courage to endure and share my story to help others.”

“My daughter is married and (she and her husband) have yet to start a family,” Washington said. “I believe this was because I always practiced age-appropriate transparency with her. I taught her how to keep safe and to tell me if anyone made her feel uncomfortable. We always had a good relationship and she knew she could confide in me.”

A four-time Amazon award-winning bestselling author, Washington has announced that other books are on the horizon much sooner than later.

“I’m thinking about compiling another anthology and another book, but right now, I designed a course for survivors,” Washington said. “It’s called ‘Survivor’s Breakthrough,’ and is a system designed for survivors to find healing, strength and the power to live a life free from the pain of their past.”

If anyone is interested in participating in the course, Elona Washington can be reached via email at: elona@elonawashington.com.

Houstonian Dr. Shelia “Sugar” Trask spreading the gospel, sharing life-enhancing testimonies through her latest book

MIRRORING GOD’S GREATNESS — For someone who has worked vigorously and persevered diligently to arrive at such a momentous stage in her life, Dr. Shelia “Sugar” Trask is clearly one who has started from the bottom and now she’s here — with God, her Helper, leading the way.
“I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become,” Trask often says.
All of which sums up why Trask, a native of Minneapolis, Minnesota deemed it essential to drive home a similar point in her latest book entitled, “Shattered Mirror: A Life Of Despair The Introduction,” a real life story in which Trask shares of thought-provoking, life-enhancing testimony as way to greatly enable the masses to — in a nutshell — draw closer to God.

HOUSTONKashonda Graham was amongst those who were quite blissful and enraptured after learning about the latest developments surrounding her aunt, Dr. Shelia “Sugar” Trask.

Said Graham, who wasted little time taking to her Facebook page Saturday morning: “I’m so overly joyed for my favorite auntie Sugar Trask. She started from the bottom and now God has her here!”

For Trask, a longtime evangelist, internationally-acclaimed motivational speaker and life coach, an established professional chef and accomplished author, life couldn’t be any better, as evidenced by her niece’s latest social media post.

Among the reasons is that for someone who has worked vigorously and persevered diligently to arrive at such a momentous stage in her life, Trask is clearly one who has started from the bottom and now she’s here — with God, her Helper, leading the way.

“I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become,” Trask often says.

All of which sums up why Trask, a native of Minneapolis, Minnesota, deemed it essential to drive home a similar point in her latest book entitled, “Shattered Mirror: A Life Of Despair The Introduction,” a real life story in which Trask shares of thought-provoking, life-enhancing testimony as way to greatly enable the masses to — in a nutshell — draw closer to God.

After all, as a seasoned woman of the cloth who has been assigned to carry out her God-mandated vision of spreading the gospel, “Shattered Mirror: A Life Of Despair The Introduction” essentially is an eye-catching, attention-grabbing project that’s geared largely toward empowering Trask’s reading audience to view even the harshest of situations and circumstances from God’s perspective.

“The vision came about in 1977 after I accepted my salvation,” Trask told Making Headline News this week. “I always knew one day I would tell my testimony in speaking engagements or books.”

Fortunately for Trask — who has labeled 2017 the “Year of Abundance” — and because of the divine calling upon her life, she’s basking and dwelling in a season whereby she’s being afforded the golden opportunities to share her story.

FULFILLING’S HER VISION — Having built her ministry on the spiritual foundation by way of Jeremiah 29:11 and Matthew 6:33, Trask, to her distinct credit, is savoring the fruits of labor.

The founder and chief executive officer of Scarfree03Ministries, Trask has managed to assemble a series of books that essentially are geared largely toward sharing hope, restoration, forgiveness, unconditional love, and deliverance from the past.

She began sharing her plethora of life’s tear-jerking, spiritually gut-checking testimonies while once in a treatment center. However, it wasn’t until sometime in 2003 that she adopted the lofty vision to compose books.

Her latest book will be officially released this week and will be available for purchase at Amazon.com, www.scarfree03ministries.com, via E-book, and Kindle Christian Book Stores. Also, a book signing is scheduled at a Houston-area Kroger on a date that has yet to be announced.

REAPING A HARVEST — Because Trask’s Creator has proven time and again to provide her a way of escape, to routinely rescue her from harm’s way, to customarily exalt and elevate her whenever she decreased so that He can increase, she can honestly profess today that she’s basking in the glory of her much-anticipated harvest season.

FOLLOW DR. TRASK: scarfree03ministries.com.

“The divine message is redemption is for us no matter what the sins we have committed,” Trask said. “God’s love is the greatest love of all. If he did it for me, He will bring you through.”

And because Trask’s Creator has proven time and again to provide her a way of escape, to routinely rescue her from harm’s way, to customarily exalt and elevate her whenever she decreased so that He could increase, she can honestly profess today that she’s basking in the glory of her much-anticipated harvest season.

Also, she is founder of the organizations: Women Who Have Overcome Adversities and Men Who have Overcome Adversities and will launch Children Who Have Overcome Adversities in early April.

In essence, aiding aspiring entrepreneurs to be resourceful in their endeavors is the primary focus, she emphasized.

“It is my opinion that everyone wants to be great,” said Anderson, alluding to Matthews 6:33 and Proverbs 24:4, her two favorite Biblical passages that headline the spiritual foundation for her business. “No one wakes up in the morning and says, ‘Today I am going to be terrible.’ So I think it is important to inspire and let others know that they indeed can be great. The best way for me to do that is to respect the skills and talents that others have and help them successfully apply them in building a successful travel business.”
