University of West Georgia’s Kambria Hardnett makes her much-anticipated authorship debut


Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9 NIV)


MIRROR IMAGE OF FAITH 

WOMAN OF EXCELLENCE — A senior at the University of West Georgia, Kambria Hardnett is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Matters of HER: A Millenial’s Faith Building Process,” her newly-produced written work that is a couple of months removed having been officially published.

DALLAS — At the end of the real day, Kambria Hardnett made sure she had done the very thing that mattered most.

She simply trusted the process.
At the end of the real day, God was faithful and just to have done the very thing that mattered most to His beloved daughter.
He rewarded her mightily for weathering and conquering the process, exalted her unlike never before for exercising her faith in such a way that it has benefited others as a result.
“I’ve had an extremely tough time while being in college, and I feel that what I have written will help others when going through tough times, feeling like there is no way out,” Hardnett, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the memorable developments that have contributed to her quest of becoming an author.
A book that is especially geared toward encouraging her fellow millennials, Hardnett’s authorship debut, too, has been nothing short of amazing.

A senior at the University of West Georgia, Hardnett is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Matters of HER: A Millenial’s Faith Building Process,” her newly-produced written work that is a couple of months removed having been officially published.

For Hardnett, a Mass Communications major — with a minor in African American studies — her new book is an authentic testament of her hard work, coupled with her bend-but-don’t-bend faith she’s steadfastly exemplified, particularly since making the transition from high school to college.

Interestingly, Hardnett doesn’t shy away from the notion that her book was produced, in large part to serve as a spiritual GPS system, of sorts, to those who look up to her.


“What pushed me to finish I would say it was little cousins and play nieces,” said Hardnett, a native of Newnan, Georgia, who commenced to composing her book in August 2017. “I want them to know that this is a process; it’s going to be hard at times and to know that there is a reason for the pain.”


A book that is comprised of just five chapters — with the No. 5 signifying the spiritual number for the term, “grace,” this writer acknowledged —- Hardnett’s “Matters of HER” is spearheaded by the familiar Biblical passage that is  Ephesians 2:8, which addresses the subject of faith in great detail.

“This book saved my life,” Hardnett said of a book that was written by the Apostle Paul. “It saved me spiritually, and I only pray that it does the same for someone else.”

To Hardnett’s credit, that seems to already be the case, given the favorable feedback she’s garnered since word spread of her newly-produced book.

“The feedback has been nothing short of amazing, (people saying) just hearing how relatable the book is, or how those twice my age have been blessed by it,” Hardnett said. “I’m just grateful for all of the feedback I’ve received thus far.”

A book that is especially geared toward encouraging her fellow millennials, Hardnett’s authorship debut, too, has been nothing short of amazing.


YOU GO GIRL!!!! 

For Hardnett, a Mass Communications major — with a minor in African American studies — her new book is an authentic testament of her hard work, coupled with her bend-but-don’t-bend faith she’s steadfastly exemplified, particularly since making the transition from high school to college.

Which, much to her delight, sums up why a few more written works are on the horizon, she said.

“Yes…I have a couple of books in mind, and a possible idea for a script,” Hardnett said.

A book that is comprised of just five chapters — with the No. 5 signifying the spiritual number for the term, “grace,” this writer acknowledged —- Hardnett’s “Matters of HER” is spearheaded by the familiar Biblical passage that is  Ephesians 2:8, which addresses the subject of faith in great detail.

More than anything, college student-turned-author is overwhelmingly grateful for God’s unmerited favor on her life, which is why she’s fully persuaded the best is yet to come.

“I believe that everything I have gone through prepared me for the moments in which I was writing,” said Hardnett, “because these chapters aren’t just ideas I’ve had about the process, but revelations to things I’ve gone through.”

With God, her Helper, steering the way.

Baltimore author Evangelist Nodella Jordan exemplifies godly act of obedience, assembles two books and counting


Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. (Hebrews 13:8 NIV)


WRITING THE GOSPEL 

GOD’S PLAN — A native of the Bronx, New York, Evangelist Nodella Jordan is the mastermind behind two remarkably compelling books: “The Intimate Place: My God, My Man, Myself” and “Sassy: The Perfect Life.”

 

Nearly six years ago is when it all began to unfold.

Evangelist Nodella Jordan was amongst a gallery of attendees at a worship service.
That is when the Holy Spirit began to speak to her unlike never before.
“It was prophesied to me to write two books,” Jordan, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the memorable developments that contributed mightily to her becoming a Christian-based author. “I figured it would be something I did once I retired.”
As Jordan had ultimately discovered, though, God had other plans which, to her surprise, had called for her to retire much sooner than she envisioned.

A book that is a little more than four years removed from its much-anticipated release, Jordan’s “The Intimate Place: My God, My Man, Myself” is highlighted by “Intimate” being broken down immensely, a word this author said could either ignite discomfort and/or confusion among people, according to a detailed introduction of Jordan’s book at Amazon.com.

“Well, little did I know, God had me to retire in August 2014 at the age of 46 and relocated and shifted me to Baltimore,” Jordan explained. “This was a very long journey, because I didn’t want to move from Connecticut  being that it was where I grew up, attended school, my family and friends were there, as well as I was well-known, too. However, after a year of fighting with God, I finally heeded His wish and shifted.”

And, because of her steadfast act of obedience, God has rewarded her mightily, not just through ministry, but as an accomplished writer.

A native of the Bronx, New York, Jordan is the mastermind behind two remarkably compelling books: “The Intimate Place: My God, My Man, Myself” and “Sassy: The Perfect Life.”

SET ASIDE FOR GOD’S USE — All things considered, Jordan doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s overwhelmingly grateful that God is steadily using her to help advance the kingdom — even through the ever-so-competitive world of authorship.

Interestingly and to her credit, Jordan goes as far as to enlighten her readers on intimacy, particularly as it relates to what she refers to as relationship capacity.

“For Christians, explaining to others about spiritual intimacy with the Heavenly Father can be even more difficult, considering it’s intimacy with someone that can’t be touched or seen,” said an Amazon spokesperson for Jordan’s ‘The Intimate Place: My God, My Man, Myself’ which was released officially on June 30, 2015. “Yet becoming personal with God in a relationship allows intimacy to not only be felt between God and you, but it also improves soul ties you share with others and yourself.”

A Christian fictional narrative, Jordan’s “Sassy: The Perfect Life” depicts the life of Sassy, whom this author describes as a “strong-willed and persistent” young woman, one whom dreamt of having the perfect life complete with a fulfilling career and a loving family, according to synopsis of her book at Amazon.com.

And then there is “Sassy: The Perfect Life,” Jordan’s latest book that made its ceremoniously release on the market on November 28, 2018.

A Christian fictional narrative, Jordan’s “Sassy: The Perfect Life” depicts the life of Sassy, whom this author describes as a “strong-willed and persistent” young woman, one whom dreamt of having the perfect life complete with a fulfilling career and a loving family, according to synopsis of her book at Amazon.com.

Along her path, she must overcome many obstacles to get to her perfect life, Jordan writes in her latest published work.

Jordan, in fact, acknowledges that Sassy was still determined to build a strong foundation for herself, one that would be comprised of her having achieved her childhood dream in the process.

IN HER OWN WORDS — “Well, little did I know, God had me to retire in August 2014 at the age of 46 and relocated and shifted me to Baltimore,” Jordan explained. “This was a very long journey, because I didn’t want to move from Connecticut  being that it was where I grew up, attended school, my family and friends were there, as well as I was well-known, too. However, after a year of fighting with God, I finally heeded His wish and shifted.”

“Sassy was a resilient, independent woman with the motivation and perseverance to achieve her dreams of becoming a great defense attorney,” said a spokesperson for Jordan’s “Sassy: The Perfect Life.’ “Her intelligence and strong work ethic gave her the ability to succeed in school, even at the competitive Villanova University Law School.”

To her credit, Jordan announced that Part 2 of her latest book is effectively underway. Not to be outdone, she said many have inquired about a second edition of “The Intimate Place,” although she “haven’t gotten to it yet,” she told MHN.


“I just don’t want to put out anything for the sake of doing it, but there must be a need and purpose for it,” Jordan said. “I do have a list of approximately eight or more books that I would like to write, but I am led by Holy Spirit what to write about. I don’t write to become wealthy or famous.”


However, rest assured that Jordan, a founder and CEO of NSJ Ministries, does, in fact, write as a strategic way to help advance the kingdom.

“I was concerned with seeing church-goers struggle to be intimate with The God they said they had a relationship with, mostly during worship and church service,” Jordan said. “The least little thing would pull them out of that zone. When you are truly in a place of intimacy, you don’t allow anything or anyone to interfere with it.

“I further identify in my (second) book five types of intimacy that we overlook on a regular basis though they’re part of our daily lives,” Jordan continued. “I want us to be intentional, purposeful, and conscious about the times we are in a moment of intimacy — non-sexual that is — and not just take it as a non-meaningful encounter.”

REAPING A HARVEST 

To her credit, Jordan announced Part 2 of her latest book is effectively underway. Not to be outdone, she said many have inquired about a second edition of “The Intimate Place,” although she “haven’t gotten to it yet,” she told MHN.

All things considered, Jordan doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s overwhelmingly grateful that God is steadily using her to help advance the kingdom — even through this ever-so-competitive world of authorship.

“Not everyone has the gift to write quality books, though there are thousands of books published a week or maybe even per day,” Jordan said. “My books are not limited to only spiritual and Christian-type books. Yes, I’m a minister, but when the word was prophesied to me to write two books, it was not given with specifics that they had to be Christian genre.”

Talk about having a massive and influential kingdom impact.

Detroit empowerment extraordinaire Jacqueline Kaba–Harrison helping women of color to ‘realize their potential’


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


PURPOSED FOR POTENTIAL 

FULL OF POTENTIAL — A native of the Motor City, Jacqueline Kaba–Harrison is the founder and chief executive officer of Realizing Your Potential LLC, her Michigan-based empowerment company that’s centered largely on helping African-American women thrive and flourish as life coaches and consultants, most notably by way of eliminating what she describes as negative self-talk and self-sabotaging behaviors that customarily prevent them from taking their business to the next level and beyond.

Enough of all of that negative chitter chatter, sistas.

Because longtime Detroit-based businesswoman Jacqueline Kaba–Harrison’s entrepreneurship expertise is such that she can aid other women mightily, particularly when it comes to grasping a thoroughly concept of why they are fearfully and wonderfully made.

A progressive venture that is accompanied by Wayne Dyer’s historic catchphrase, “Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life,” Kaba–Harrison’s Realizing Your Potential LLC has become a fixture throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area and, given the immeasurable strides it has made since its inception in April 2016, it’s safe to assume this company’s best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

Credit Kaba–Harrison’s positive, spirited disposition on life as arguably the grandest reason why.

“I’ve always known that I was meant to be my own boss,” Kaba–Harrison, 47, told Making Headline News this week. “I’ve never been one for conformity, but rather a trend setter. After increasing my self-esteem and self-confidence, I know I am limitless and I can achieve whatever I aspire to with hard work and determination.”

As for what she admittedly loves the most about her business venture, what it all boils down to, Kaba–Harrison emphasized, is helping educate women of color to reconnect with their overall uniqueness, to rediscover and embrace the divine purpose for which they were created.


“I love meeting new people and finding out what makes them unique. I enjoy educating women and serving as their catalyst to greatness. Also, (it allows for) the limitless potential of earnings and freedom in my schedule.” —Jacqueline Kaba–Harrison


An endeavor that services African-American woman ranging in ages 35 to 55, Realizing Your Potential LLC has grasped the attention of a slew of businesswomen in greater Atlanta and, much sooner than later, Kaba–Harrison is confident her venture will begin to attract more of a national presence.


SAVE THE DATES 

Having earned an undergraduate degree from Detroit’s Wayne State University, Kaba–Harrison consequently acquired a Master’s Degree from the historic Clark Atlanta University.

Besides overseeing the day-to-day operations of Realizing Your Potential LLC, Kaba–Harrison is the proud host of “A Queen’s Round Table Show” that airs on the second and fourth Sunday of every month via Facebook.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE — Kaba–Harrison’s entrepreneurship expertise is such that she can aid other women mightily, particularly when it comes to grasping a thoroughly concept of why they are fearfully and wonderfully made.

In addition, she hosts what is known as “A Queen’s Round Table Quarterly Symposium, with her third quarter airing scheduled to take place on September 15.

Interestingly, Kaba–Harrison is a rising author, who’s a part of a forthcoming collaborative book entitled, “I Am A Black Woman: Next Level,” which is scheduled to launch sometime in 2020.

Widely regarded as a success and confidence coach for African-American women, Realizing Your Potential LLC’s strategic focus is to inspire and uplift African-American women everywhere or, as this face of this notable endeavor said, “to know better and do better for themselves, their families, and their communities.”

For three-plus years and counting.

Connecticut author Tamara Mitchell-Davis savoring fruits of her labor with two books and counting


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


ROYALTY GOALS 

FIT FOR A QUEEN — To her distinctly unique credit, it is in large part because of the divine calling on her life that Tamara Mitchell-Davis has been blessed to function mightily in her element as an accomplished author, who is responsible for having composed two books to date.

DALLAS — Tamara Mitchell-Davis absolutely is passionate about writing.

So much, in fact, that such a notable craft has become an integral part of the divine purpose for which she was created.
“I’ve always been into writing,” Mitchell-Davis, a Hartford, Connecticut-based author, told Making Headline News this week. “But when it came to creating my own books, I had it in my head for a long time.”
To her distinctly unique credit, it is in large part because of the divine calling on her life that Mitchell-Davis has been blessed to function mightily in her element as an accomplished author, who is responsible for having composed two books to date.
A book that is accompanied by 166 pages and was officially released on September 20, 2018, Mitchell-Davis’ “GoalGetter: Strategies To Overcome Life’s Challenges” appropriately reveals three pertinent reasons people customarily don’t achieve their goals, as mentioned in a detailed introduction at Amazon.com.

“People don’t achieve their goals because of three reasons: They get stuck in regret; They don’t have a plan in place; They give up way too soon,” said a spokesperson for Mitchell-Davis’ “GoalGetter: Strategies To Overcome Life’s Challenges.’ “#GoalGetter’ is here to show you what’s next. In this book, Tamara Mitchell-Davis will share practical strategies and solutions to overcome everyday challenges in order to live your best life.”

In this Amazon bestseller book, Mitchell-Davis eloquently reminds us that many times, putting faith over fear is easier said than done.

And then there is “Goodbye Fear, Hello Destiny,” a spiritually-empowering and life-changing project that made its ceremonious release just last year with foreword written by Joelle Murchison, the CEO of ExecMommy Group.

In this Amazon bestseller book, Mitchell-Davis eloquently reminds us that many times, putting faith over fear is easier said than done.


“But anything worth having, never comes easy, and getting to your destiny isn’t always a breeze or fun,” this Christian-based writer emphasizes. “With life pulling you in every direction, sometimes, seeing the big picture is no easy task. It’s easy to give up hope. It’s easy to feel defeated and to keep looking back in the past.”

But after you’ve suffered while…

Or, according to Mitchell-Davis…

“What if you stayed focused, pushed forward and realized that there was no such thing as failure? Who would you become? What would you be? Who is counting on you, to reach your destiny?” she posed to her reading audience.

All things considered, that Mitchell-Davis has been blessed to assemble a pair of awe-inspiring books didn’t merely come easy. Nevertheless, the journey undoubtedly has been well worth it.

“It wasn’t until I worked through some internal things that I was ready to share it with the world,” Mitchell-Davis said of her immeasurable gift as a writer. “I had a lot of questions, because I had never done the writing and publishing thing.”

But amongst the things she discovered as a result is that God had other strategic plans for her life, despite the flurry of inquiries that were lingering on her brain.

IN HER OWN WORDS — “I know that my books are purpose driven by the responses I have received from my readers. They can relate to my information and they are inspired and motivated by my message which causes them to self-reflect and take action.”

And if God said it, that settles it.

“There wasn’t too many people around me that I could lean on for support, assistance or even mentoring,” Mitchell-Davis, referring to the memorable developments surrounding her quest to become an author. “I ended up figuring it out by myself, in which the underlying reasons and message for writing was to inspire and motivate others.”

So far, so good for an avid author, whose best and brightest days are well ahead of her.

Since the much-anticipated release of her latest book, Mitchell-Davis has launched The CEO Wife Writer’s Academy, her online learning community that caters to women (most notably, wives), who are interested in writing and publishing their own book by leveraging their expertise and building a business with it.

“My books are non-fiction and (my stories are) my own personal experiences and journey through life, so others can see that their past does not dictate or determine their future…that being stuck is never a permanent situation unless you choose it to be,” Mitchell-Davis said.

“I know that my books are purpose driven by the responses I have received from my readers. They can relate to my information and they are inspired and motivated by my message which causes them to self-reflect and take action.”

DESTINY STEPS 


All things considered, that Mitchell-Davis has been blessed to assemble a pair of awe-inspiring books didn’t merely come easy. Nevertheless, the journey undoubtedly has been well worth it.

“I work with them to get ideas from head space to paper and into a published book, Mitchell-Davis explained. “Since writing, I have had speaking engagements, interviews, media features continuously look forward to learning and growing.”

Credit her remarkably compelling craft as an eloquent writer as the No. 1 reason why.

Maryland author LaVerne Perlie’s ‘Born Again Daughters of Zion’ quickly creating a global buzz since its release


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


WOMAN THOU ART LOOSED 

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

As far as telling one’s story goes, LaVerne Perlie is only making known God’s deeds among His people.

“The power of telling your story is one of the best ways to inspire and motivate others to consider change,” Perlie told Making Headline News during a weekend interview. “I believe collaboration and partnership symbolize the strength women possess. So I wanted to collect the heart of the women, capture their thoughts in writing, and demonstrate the bond of unified voices in action.
“Sharing your story opens the door to endless possibilities to make a difference in someone’s life. Now is the time.”
Indeed it is for Perlie, a Maryland-based writer, who is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring and compelling book entitled, “Born Again Daughters Of Zion: Our Transformational Stories of Revelation Resilience and Recovery.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


SEASON OF THE REBIRTH 

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Spoken like a true champion for Christ.

Simona Badger’s S Badger Empowerment and Consulting Services, LLC is nothing short of brilliant

WOMAN ON THE MOVE

MAKING MAJOR MOVES — Simona Badger’s S Badger Empowerment and Consulting Services, LLC, a credible, progressive Newark, New Jersey-based venture that customarily provides what is known as culturally sensitive, trauma focused psychotherapy, and professional education to the communities she serves.

DALLAS — To her distinctly unique credit, Simona Badger can be appropriately described as an empowerment extradionaire.

Consider, for instance, how Badger had gone about establishing S Badger Empowerment and Consulting Services, LLC, a credible, progressive Newark, New Jersey-based venture that customarily provides what is known as culturally sensitive, trauma focused psychotherapy, and professional education to the communities she serves.
“I’ve always known as a child that I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives,” Badger, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, explaining how her competitive drive in life has greatly propelled her for her business venture.
“Growing up, I was interested in social issues such as inequality, women’s rights, and racism. Starting my own business gave me the freedom to serve my community on a deeper level than if I was working for someone. A lot of the things that I accomplished in my life — degrees, marriage, children, business and finding my purpose — are all things I wanted to achieve before I turned 40.”

Because of the purpose for which God has created her, Badger has accomplished that and more — this for a thriving, 39-year-old businesswoman.

Armed with over a decade of experience in her chosen industry — most notably through treating survivors of domestic and sexual violence — Badger’s mission is centered largely on (but isn’t limited to) educating and supporting teens and adults about unhealthy relationships.

Interestingly, her upcoming book will provide a more in-depth and strategic emphasis on assisting teens and young adults, particularly with regards to healing from unhealthy relationships.

“Simona believes that her gift is to educate and support as many lives plagued by inter-generational and trans- generational trauma, and she believes her work would be incomplete unless she is able to give back to her native country (Jamaica) through her volunteering work,” said a spokesperson for Badger’s S Badger Empowerment and Consulting Services LLC.


MORE ON BADGER’S VENTURE: https://www.sbempowerment.org/

Much to her delight, Badger will be afforded the golden opportunity to share with the masses her longstanding mission through her organization when she host the Changing The Language of Men’s Health Conference on June 22, at Newark’s Source of Knowledge Bookstore, located at 867 Broad Street.

A conference that will be highlighted by what organizers have dubbed, “Real Talk With A Dynamic Panel Of Men,” tickets for this event can be purchased by calling 973.392.9473 or by paying via PayPal at: http://paypal.me/simonabadger.

“The reason why I’m hosting this conference and focusing on men’s mental health is because for far too long, men have suffered in silence, which has negatively impacted families and communities,” Badger said. “I grew up seeing how toxic masculinity affected males in my own family of origin. I remember seeing the males in my family drink away their problems, gamble away their money and date multiple women at a time due to being stressed.”

For what it’s worth, she credits her immeasurable experiences as a foster care caseworker and New York City Administration for Children Services clinical consultant through The Child Center of New York for her notable accomplishments of becoming what she refers to as a “momprenuer,” as well as a psychotherapist, educator, and advocate.

SAVE THE DATE

Her empowerment and consulting firm, in fact, provides holistic mental health treatment, as well as prevention and education services to women, men, families, children and adolescents, and under-served populations affected by health disparities, trauma, self-identity issues and poverty.

Widely regarded as a compassionate, professional and culturally competent therapist, who provides what it known as a “strengths based” perspective to therapy, Badger strongly believes that in working together through a trusting collaborative relationship, one can gain support to alleviate emotional pain and begin the journey of self-acceptance.

To her credit, her extensive experience includes — but isn’t limited to — helping clients with traumatic experiences, divorce, relationship problems, sleep problems, grief, work-related stress, family stress, and immigration concerns, among others.

A native of Jamaica (West Indies), Badger Simona Badger attended Ferncourt High School in her native establishment before reuniting with her parents in the United States at 15 years of age.

Consequently, she attended Harry S. Truman High in the Bronx, New York, where and graduated in 1998.


MAKING IMMEASURABLE STRIDES

For what it’s worth, Badger credits her immeasurable experiences as a foster care caseworker and New York City Administration for Children Services clinical consultant through The Child Center of New York for her notable accomplishments of becoming what she refers to as a “momprenuer,” as well as a psychotherapist, educator, and advocate.

Badger advanced her education at Herbert H. Lehman College, where she earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Sociology (she minored in Black Studies) in 2003.

Then in 2008, she earned a Master of Social Work Degree from Fordham University. During her graduate studies, she majored in Clinical social Work with a certification in Law and Social Work Practice.

Interestingly, in 2013, Badger completed a post-graduate program at New Jersey Institute for Psychoanalysis-Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Certificate Program in nearby Teaneck.

“I love empowering people to reach their full potential,” Badger said. “We are all resilient, but that’s easily forgotten when we are going through hard times.”

Boston author Pamela Reece’s “I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage” deemed a much-anticipated ‘must read’


If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small. (Proverbs 24:10 KJV)


PURPOSED FOR ADVERSITY

TURNING POINT — To her credit, Pamela Reece’s authorship talents have come full circle, given she is the mastermind behind the spiritually-empowering book entitled, “I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage,” an awe-inspiring project that, according to this Boston-area writer, essentially aligns with the purpose for which she was created.

Regardless of how discouraging or dysfunctional things had become, say this about Pamela Reece:

She was determined not to faint (or give up) in her day (present time) of adversity.
“On various occasions, I’d be in the company of friends, sharing portions of my story, growing up in a dysfunctional setting and the adversities I had to overcome,” Reece, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the memorable developments that fueled her desire to compose her latest book.
“Initially, the conversations were just a means to socialize and share my testimony of God’s faithfulness to me through the years,” Reece continued. “I would go from one experience to the next as my friends listened intently…so much that they strongly suggested I write a book.  I quickly dismissed the idea of writing, because it seemed so daunting.”
All things considered, amongst the things that Reece had ultimately discovered was that God had other ideas, particularly with her regards to her immeasurable gifts as a writer.

To her credit, Reece’s authorship talents have come full circle, given she is the mastermind behind the spiritually-empowering book entitled, “I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage,” an awe-inspiring project that, according to this Boston-area writer, essentially aligns with the purpose for which she was created.

“Whenever God sends a deliverer, the opposition will wage war so that the deliverer doesn’t walk in his or her purpose,” said Reece, a devout woman of faith whom, given her array of hardships, is sounding as confident as she’s ever been in quite some time. “The opposition knows the Deliverer if given free course, will powerfully impact lives and generations to come.  So adversity was sent to smother my identity and purpose in the earth, yet every trial was sent to shape my personality but only for the better.  What seemed unfair, unjust and horrific, God has turned it for my good.”

Especially through “I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage,” this spiritually-equipping written work that, much to Reece’s delight, was birthed amid all sorts of adversity that emerged in her life to challenge her faith.

Still, come hell or high water, this Christian-based author didn’t merely allow her faith to waver.

If nothing, she deemed it essential to become even more intentional, particularly from a spiritually perspective, considering she steadfastly made it point to draw closer to God in the process.

THE PROVERBS 24:10 FACTOR — “I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage” is spiritually-equipping written work that, much to Reece’s delight, was birthed amid all sorts of adversity

Talk about demonstrating enough spiritual maturity by simply embracing adversity.


“Without the adversity, I would not have the advantage today of sharing this interview with the world,” Reece said. “Statistics tell us that eight out of 10 rapes are committed by someone the victim knows.  Every nine minutes, child protective service agencies find evidence of sexual abuse.”


Interesting, Reece disclosed some other notable facts to better support her purpose for assembling “I Chose The Good: Turning  Adversity Into Advantage.”

A native of Boston, Reece’s “I Chose the Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage” is her personal memoir that details in length her growing up in a home of severe dysfunctionality and adversity.  This book, in fact, goes into great length of how she was exposed to abandonment, alcoholism, verbal abuse, and sexual molestation.

“I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage” is Reece’s first published book and, earlier this week, she told Making Headline News that after the forthcoming re-launch of “I Chose the Good,” more literary works will surface in the pipeline before year’s end.

“Today and the future are mine to dream, describe, and define,” Reece said. “I am particularly passionate about those who are a little older like myself, who know that they’re made for more and have an insatiable desire to pursue a lifelong dream and touch the world.”

To her credit, she’s doing just that — regardless of how discouraging or dysfunctional things might seem.

OKC businessman Karim Muhammad aiming to promote his nonprofit organization on national talk and syndicated radio shows

A NATIONAL IMPACT

MAJOR MAJOR STRIDES — A native of Oklahoma City, Karim Muhammad is especially grateful of the immeasurable strides he made through his Teachers Appreciation Foundation, which is steadily attracting more of a national presence.

DALLAS — Karim Muhammad is on a mission.

A great, big one, to be more technical.

Consider, for instance, Muhammad’s fervent, unyielding quest in having a monumental impact as the founder and executive director of the Teachers Appreciation Foundation, his Oklahoma City-based nonprofit organization he founded nearly five years ago.

“Inspiring others is very instrumental (in that I’m afforded the golden opportunity) to encourage them to follow their dreams,” Muhammad told Making Headline News during a weekend interview.

WHAT ABOUT TAF? https://www.taf5.org/

A native of Oklahoma City, Muhammad is especially grateful of the immeasurable strides he’s made through his organization, which is steadily attracting more of a national presence.

So much, in fact, that this young businessman doesn’t shy away from the notion that he’s destined to devise ways to grasp the attention of a few renowned celebrities and political figures.

“Our goal is to convey the mission and the message on a national talk show and syndicated radio talk show,” said Muhammad, referring specifically to the Steve Harveys, Wendy Williamses, Dr. Phils, and the Rickey Smileys of the world, just to name a few.

A former Langston University and Oklahoma State University student, Muhammad’s Teachers Appreciation Foundation is comprised of a five-person leadership board in which his mother serves as President. Pictured with Muhammad is Oklahoma City Mayor David Holt.

A nonprofit organization that went into full operations in June 2014, Teachers Appreciation Foundation’s mission is centered largely on remaining dedicated to the movement of appreciating the school village responsible for teaching the future leaders of the world, as mentioned in a detailed breakdown of this institution at https://www.taf5.org/.

Moreover, this credible nonprofit is widely known for giving back to Oklahoma schools by acknowledging and appreciating educators and support workers in a big way.

Powered by the motto, “The School Village Will Teach The Child” — a catchphrase that was spearheaded by Muhammad’s mother, former longtime educator Miniimah Muhammad — Muhammad was determined to start a foundation that honors school teachers, custodians, school bus drivers, cafeteria workers, and everyone involved in the school system as a whole, he said.

Nearing its fifth year of existence, Teachers Appreciation Foundation has become a fixture, particularly in highlighting what Muhammad describes as “the roots of these phenomenal people” in large part because “they are pieces to the educational puzzle,” he said.

Interestingly and to his credit, Muhammad’s mother — whose teaching career spanned more than three decades — were amongst those elated and enthused about the concept to establish a credible and worthy foundation.

“I want to provide a quintessential service to my community and other communities worldwide,” Muhammad, an OKC Northeast High School graduate, said, explaining his purpose for his organization, which accommodates people 25 years of age and up. “(I love) putting smiles on the faces and bringing excitement to dignitaries, educators and supporting staff.”

Much to his delight, social media has benefited Muhammad’s organization mightily in that it has helped spread the word about his flourishing endeavor, which will be hosting its annual TAF Awards Show in the coming months.

According to Muhammad, he and his staff are in discussion for the 2020 TAF Awards to be held in Oklahoma City (February 1 of that year) and nearby Arlington, Texas (on February 8).

In addition, his organization will be hosting a number of community-related events, most notably its TAF Awards Sponsorship Seminars, which customarily take place the third Thursday of each month and is free and open to the public.

A former Langston University and Oklahoma State University student, Muhammad’s Teachers Appreciation Foundation is comprised of a five-person leadership board in which his mother serves as President.

Dawud Ali is TAF’s Vice President, Moneka Sharee is Secretary, and Julie Sharif and Latasha Howell assume the roles as staff members.

“We want to build the movement of appreciating the whole school body,” Muhammad added. “I want the people who go to school to get their teaching certification and degrees to look forward to the Teachers Appreciation Foundation Awards Show. I want them to look forward to the awards show as the Grammys for teachers and staff.”

Talk about a man on a mission.
