Louisiana author LaDonna Jarden fulfilling her God-mandated purpose with 10 books and counting


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


GOD’S LEADING LADY

DESTINY STEPS — During an interview this week with Making Headline News, Louisiana Christian author LaDonna Jarden was extremely complementary to God, particularly how He’s gone about using her for His glory through her immeasurable gifts as an author. Jarden has authored 10 books since 2004.

DALLAS — Ten and counting.

That is the number of books accomplished Christian-based author LaDonna Jarden has written throughout an authorship tenure that spans a little more than a decade and a half.
Her latest written work, “Bruised But Not Broken: Worshipping With A Broken Heart,” is presently in the works and, much to her delight, has already created a favorable buzz for Jarden, a native of Houston.
During an interview this week with Making Headline News, Jarden was extremely complementary to God, particularly how He’s gone about using her for His glory through her immeasurable gifts as an author.
“It (is) a testimony of life issues I was dealing with,” Jarden, a DeRidder, Louisiana-based writer, said of her latest book, a spiritually-equipping project that will be released at a date to be announced. “It was a coping mechanism for me to release the pain I was enduring.”

Jarden’s authorship debut occurred in 2001 during which she discovered her sister was ill. She completed her initial project two years later.

To her credit, it seemed she hasn’t retired the pad and pen since, considering she has written nine additional books, including one in consecutive years between 2014-2016.

Prior to that timeframe, Jarden had written books every two years.

“In this book I’m publishing is for my sisters,” ladies, please stop holding every man accountable for (your) past relationship issues,” said Jarden, explaining the divine message she’s aiming to send to her audience through her newly-assembled book. “If you allow God to heal the hurt, you can overcome this.”

In a nutshell, Jarden emphasized, what it all boils down to seeking and consulting God for a sense of direction, particularly when it comes to putting the past where it belongs: behind you.


“I’m not saying it’s easy, but you will get through it,” Jarden said. “I’m reminded the story of Job. He lost all he had, but he fell to the ground and worshipped. He said, ‘The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away,…blessed be the name of the Lord.’ He worshipped God and remained faithful.”


A book that is a spinoff from a conference Jarden customarily hosts, this devout woman of faith said the feedback through her books has been overwhelmingly favorable.

“I’ve counseled many single women on relationships,” Jarden said. “I’ve gone to marriage retreats, taught women’s conferences, etc.

As Jarden has reiterated time and again to those to whom she counsels, “Everything we face in life has a purpose.”


THROUGH IT ALL…

“My marriage for the first five years was rocky,” Jarden said. “I didn’t consult anyone but God. I didn’t consult family, girlfriends, or others. I spoke with our spiritual father and he came down and counseled us, after which I became a spokesperson for women in marriage. The enemy wants nothing more than to lock believers in that cell of pain and keep us trapped in isolation. But God says, ‘No!’”

Interestingly, she even deemed it essential to offer a great deal of transparency when sharing with others her assortment of life-changing testimonies.

“My marriage for the first five years was rocky,” Jarden said. “I didn’t consult anyone but God. I didn’t consult family, girlfriends, or others. I spoke with our spiritual father and he came down and counseled us, after which I became a spokesperson for women in marriage. The enemy wants nothing more than to lock believers in that cell of pain and keep us trapped in isolation. But God says, ‘No!’”

An accomplished businesswoman in her own right — she owns a T-shirt line and credible publishing company — Jarden is giddy of the fact that God has strategically set her aside for His use.


A NOTABLE REMINDER…

How else to explain why she’s made some pretty considerable strides as a Christian-based author?

“There are many other books I know God has purposed me to do,” said Jarden, whose itinerary includes an engagement in December during which she will enlighten women knowing their position and purpose in ministry.

An authorship tenure that spans nearly 16 years, Jarden said amongst her strategic objectives to encourage people from various walks of life to development the mindset tell of God’s goodness through their testimonies.

IN HER OWN ZONE — To her credit, it seemed she hasn’t retired the pad and pen since, considering she has written nine additional books, including one in consecutive years between 2014-2016.

“I believe that if we as believers would tell our story, then we can win others to Christ,” Jarden said. “Pursue your purpose and God will use you for His glory. I am now a publisher with my own publishing company.”

To her credit, she’s undoubtedly savoring the fruits of her labor.

“This year, I have published five (authors’ books), and I have personally written 10 books,” Jarden said. “I’ve been writing for 15 years.”

And counting.

Talk about allowing God to use her mightily according to His purpose.

Louisiana Christian author Wendy Magee’s second book geared toward helping others embrace their purpose


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


EMBRACING PURPOSE 

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS — A devout woman of faith who has been married for more than 12 years, New Orleans author Wendy Magee deemed it essential to put her immeasurable authorship gifts on display for a second time, this time with the release of the newly-produced book entitled, “You Are Unique: Embrace It.”

Wendy Magee was all ears.

She heard all of what essentially was nothing more than murmuring and complaining —at least from a spiritual perspective.

Even as she listened attentively to a gallery of women collectively question the purpose for they were created, she sensed it was a civic duty to helped steer them in the right direction with God, her Helper, steering the way.
“I began hearing many women questioning their purpose,” Magee told Making Headline News this week. “As I spoke with these women, I found that many of them have been married for several years and feeling like they have lost themselves and didn’t have a purpose.”

“Through my writing of the book, I found the love for running and fitness,” Magee said. “I found purpose to inspire people to push beyond their limits to find greatness.”

Much to her delight, her God-mandated mission undoubtedly has been accomplished.

South Carolina Pastor Angela L. Mczeke walking exquisitely in her purpose as a successful author, businesswoman


For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)


PROVERBS 31 AFFECT 

WOMAN OF MANY HATS — Widely known as a Pastor, Innovative Coach, Empowerment Speaker, Stylist, Educator, and Inventor, Angela L. Mczeke has also found her niche as an accomplished author of five books to date.

In case you don’t know her, Pastor Angela L. Mczeke would like to introduce herself.

A native of Tabor City, North Carolina — one of the state’s largest counties that is just north of the North Carolina/South Carolina state line with a population of roughly 3,979, according to the latest U. S. census — Mczeke currently resides in Green Sea, South Carolina, which is in close proximity of the historic Myrtle Beach.
Widely known as a Pastor, Innovative Coach, Empowerment Speaker, Stylist, Educator, and Inventor, Mczeke has also found her niche as an accomplished author of five books to date.
Mczeke’s featured written work undoubtedly is entitled, “No Longer Silent,” a project that has fueled her fervent desire to host what is known as her annual “No Longer Silent Conference.”
“(I’ve hosted) a conference every year since 2017,” Mczeke told Making Headline News this week. “Women have come forward with their stories, (sharing how they’ve) become healed and moving on in life despite the heartache and pain (they’ve endured). I have preached and had others to join as well.

FOR STARTERS — Mczeke’s featured written work undoubtedly is entitled, “No Longer Silent,” a project that has fueled her fervent desire to host what is known as her annual “No Longer Silent Conference.”

“I have preached (at other) conferences only to tell my story and lives have been changed through my courage to speak out.”

A devout woman of faith whose kingdom-based resume is amongst the most-respected throughout the Body of Christ, Mczeke also is the mastermind behind four other spiritually-empowering books: “Search Yourself,” “Anthology: 12 Laws To Women In Business,” “Purified Purpose To Success,” and “12 Keys To Success.”

“They are (tremendous reads) to have… mostly for women,” Mczeke said of her other written works. “Despite the obstacles, (my books are pivotal reminders) that you can become an overcomer.”

Interestingly, once Mczeke had become acclimated to the ever-so-competitive authorship, it wasn’t until after her sophomore project that she had begun to enhance her business-related mechanics, particularly as an empowerment coach.

“After my second book, I became a life coach and I am an inventor,” said Mczeke, referring to the eventual startup of what is known as “The Innovative Coaching Business.”

STARTING LINEUP — A devout woman of faith whose kingdom-based resume is amongst the most-respected throughout the Body of Christ, Mczeke also is the mastermind behind four other spiritually-empowering books: “Search Yourself,” “Anthology: 12 Laws To Women In Business,” “Purified Purpose To Success,” and “12 Keys To Success.”

Through this notable endeavor, Mczeke is routinely afforded the opportunity of creating ideas for herself, as well as for her clients and mentees as a strategic way of enabling them to advance in the life God has for them, she said.

Widely regarded as a trail blazer, in large part because of her unorthodox creativity — “which God has poured into me,” she acknowledged — Mczeke is the chief executive officer of Exclusive Design Hair Studio, Exclusive Chic Fashions On Line Boutique, Exclusive Wig Collection, and she is the face of Angela’s Innovative Hair Academy.

To her credit, Mczeke has made considerable strides in what is known as the Innovative Certified Coaching industry, in large part because of the sustained success of her online program called, “Embracing Your Originality.”

A well-respected and beloved woman of God, Mczeke is the Founder of Kingdom Harvest Outreach Ministries.

Her kingdom-based track record is such that she is widely regarded for steadfastly standing in truth, firmly on the word of God, realizing — among other things — she can’t do anything without Him.

“He created me in His image and likeness,” Mczeke said of her sustained success in the kingdom and the marketplace.

All things considered, Mczeke emphasized she customarily uses a journey she refers to as “from victim to victorious” to greatly empower other women, most notably through her coaching, mentoring programs, and conferences.


“I never knew I would be a writer, author, mentor, and life coach until I lost my house around 2016, and me and my husband while Pastoring for about three years, we moved in with my mom and I begin journaling,” said Mczeke, recalling vividly the humble beginnings that essentially spearheaded her quest to persevere toward the purpose for which God created her. “And I was told to write a book.”


As it turned it, Mczeke hasn’t shown any signs that she plans to shelve the pen and pad anytime soon.

How else to explain why she has successfully orchestrated five books in such a brief time frame?

“(People told me), ‘I see you writing,’” Mczeke said. “I never knew I would be an author of five books. These books have totally helped me walk completely into my purpose.”

Without question, it is a foregone conclusion Who gets the credit.

“I can honestly say I give God the glory,” Mczeke said without hesitation. “I only want Him to be glorified. I knew it was major that I walk into my purpose…to empower, motivate, and inspire others through my experiences.”

For Mczeke, she subsequently had to endure her share of ashes before God had ultimately catapulted her to a much-anticipated harvest season, one that’s blanketed by pure beauty — both in the natural and the spirit.

“After 17 years of being a successful hairstylist and salon owner, I was forced by God to shut it down,” Mczeke said. “Yes, I became depressed, because that’s all I thought I knew, but God had so much more in me. So He bought me out of my comfort zone to place me in a very uncomfortable place I hadn’t been before.”

Little did Mczeke know, even when she sensed she was down to nothing, God — His usual reliable Self — was up to something.

“Now I am depressed, because I didn’t understand what was going on only to find out I was in transition to something greater than me…my career,” Mczeke said. “Now I am traveling all over the world to not (just) saving hair, but lives as well.”

In case you don’t know Pastor Angela L. Mczeke, now you do.

All things considered, Mczeke emphasized she customarily uses a journey she refers to as “from victim to victorious” to empower other women, most notably through her coaching, mentoring programs, and conferences.

Houston-area author Nicole Michelle advancing the kingdom mightily through her immeasurable writing gift


And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose; For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters; And those He predestined, He also called; those He called, He also justified; those He justified, He also glorified; What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:28-31 KJV)


PROVERBS 31 AFFECT 

WOMAN OF MANY HATS — Once a catalyst in the Corporate America sector — during which she assumed the role as an Executive Director with an international public accounting firm, which was accompanied by a multiple six-figure income — Nicole Michelle has proven to be a crafty author, of sorts, given she has assembled three books to date. Three of her most prized written works: “Overcoming Mediocrity,” “Prayers Of The Righteous That Availeth Much,” and “COMMON WEALTH: Looks Just Like You.”

DALLAS — Prayer. Purpose. Power.

To her distinctly unique credit, these are just a trio of spiritual superlatives that greatly sum up who Nicole Michelle is.

According to a detailed introduction at https://nicolemichelle.com/, Nicole Michelle is widely regarded as an accomplished evangelist, one who has been appropriately dubbed a “multi- dimensional” Proverbs 31 woman whom, much to her delight, firmly believes when much is given, even more is required.

Once a catalyst in the Corporate America sector — during which she assumed the role as an Executive Director with an international public accounting firm, which was accompanied by a multiple six-figure income — Nicole Michelle has proven to be a crafty author, of sorts, given she has penned three books to date.

Three of her most prized written works: “Overcoming Mediocrity,”Prayers Of The Righteous That Availeth Much,” and “COMMON WEALTH: Looks Just Like You.”

For Nicole Michelle, each of her awe-inspiring books is a thing of beauty, in large part because these projects are steadily having a massive impact, particularly in the Body of Christ.

“In 2012, I went through a prayer desert where I literally could not pray,” Nicole Michelle told Making Headline News this week. “(I’m) a prayer warrior and an intercessor….but I could not pray.  The only words I could utter were, ‘Lord, bless the mess.’ That is what my life was at that time, a mess. But God turned my mess into my message.”

Interestingly, what this Christian-based author had ultimately come to discover was that uttering “Lord, bless my mess” was a sufficient enough dialogue with the Father that would give way to her acquiring the much-anticipated breakthrough she so desperately sought at the time.

IN HER OWN WORDS — “’Prayers Of the Righteous That Availeth Much’ is dedicated to the believers, individuals, intercessors, and prayer warriors who struggle to pray when the cares of life become overwhelming,” Nicole Michelle said.

“God spoke to me and said, ‘If you could not pray as the prayer warrior and intercessor that you are, what about my other children?’” Nicole Michelle recalled. “God downloaded over 350 prayer topics to me and I released my first volume of 110 prayer topics in February 2017.”

Not to be outdone, it was because Nicole Michelle had exemplified unwavering faith that God, in turn, ceremoniously bestowed upon her the fruit of her labor by allowing her to release the sophomore volume of financial devotionals in April 2019, a development that ironically unfolded on her 45th birthday.

And just like that, she had steadfastly found her niche in this, the ever-so-competitive authorship industry.

“I wanted to circumvent any other prayer desert,” said Nicole Michelle, explaining in detailed the purpose for her books. “My books are meant to be catalysts that allow individuals to jump start their prayer life through daily devotional time with God.

“’Prayers Of the Righteous That Availeth Much’ is dedicated to the believers, individuals, intercessors, and prayer warriors who struggle to pray when the cares of life become overwhelming,” Nicole Michelle added.

Interestingly, what this Christian-based author had ultimately come to discover was that uttering “Lord, bless my mess” was a sufficient enough dialogue with the Father that would give way to her acquiring the much-anticipated breakthrough she so desperately sought at the time.

As for “COMMON WEALTH: Looks Just Like You,” this Houston-area author emphasized, among other things, that this project was designed to allow individuals to become what she appropriately describes as their “best financial self,” a rather unique and essential disposition that aligns with 3 John 1:2, she acknowledged.

A beloved mother, mentor, executive business woman, humanitarian, philanthropist, publisher, and an independent certified speaker, Nicole Michelle’s authorship talents were initially put on display sometime Fall 2016.

Subsequently, her first volume was released in Spring 2017, followed by the ensuing volume approximately two years later.

Not to be outdone, it was because Nicole Michelle had exemplified unwavering faith that God, in turn, ceremoniously bestowed upon her the fruit of her labor by allowing her to release the sophomore volume of financial devotionals in April 2019, a development that ironically unfolded on her 45th birthday.

To her credit, she’s since been as good as advertised as a rising and gifted author.

To God be the glory.

“I want the readers to know that they can stay connected to the Father through prayer and that they are able to tap into God’s power and achieve the lifestyle of health, wealth, and abundance that God has desired for us as believers,” said Nicole Michelle, explaining the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience through her books.”

A beloved mother, mentor, executive business woman, humanitarian, philanthropist, publisher, and an independent certified speaker, Nicole Michelle’s authorship talents were initially put on display sometime Fall 2016.

As expected, the overall feedback since the release of her books has been favorable, for the most part — not to mention spiritually empowering.

“I have had First Ladies tell me that the prayer devotional literally saved their marriage, because they could spend their devotional time in prayer and privately deal with their issues and concerns by getting naked before God,” Nicole Michelle said. “Love covers a multitude of faults. God knows the evidence, but He conceals it from the enemy and your enemies. God also has a witness protection program that will change your identity once you have been purged and cleansed with His Word.”

“I want the readers to know that they can stay connected to the Father through prayer and that they are able to tap into God’s power and achieve the lifestyle of health, wealth, and abundance that God has desired for us as believers,” said Nicole Michelle explaining the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience through her books.”

Additional books are forthcoming, said Nicole Michelle, a native of Missouri City, Texas.

She has, in fact, announced the future releases of four devotional volumes that will be centered on “Faith, Family, Healing and, Deliverance,” she said.

As expected, the overall feedback since the release of her books has been favorable, for the most part — not to mentioning spiritually empowering.

“My tests have become my testimonies,” Nicole Michelle said. “God has given me a ministry of transparency and allowed me to share with others the knowledge that I have garnered over the years. Knowledge is power and it is important that we utilize the resources around us to tap into that power.

Additional books are forthcoming, said Nicole Michelle, a native of Missouri City, Texas.

“My gift has made room for me and allowed me to share the good news of the Gospel across this nation.”

Thanks in large part to:  Prayer. Purpose. Power.

Which, of course, are just a trio of spiritual superlatives that greatly sum up who Nicole Michelle is.

New Jersey Pastor Dr. Laura Anderson defies rash of odds en route to accepting her God-mandated calling


“He who pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor.” (Proverbs 21:21)


GOD IS WITH HER

GOD’S LEADING LADY — A native of Farmersville, Alabama, Apostle Dr. Laura Anderson, 55, is the Senior Pastor of Emanuel Healing Deliverance Cathedral, her Bayville, New Jersey-area ministry that is located at 91 Atlantic City Boulevard.

During the infancy stages of her teenage life, Apostle Dr. Laura Anderson wouldn’t be what most would describe as a typical teenager.

Consider, for instance, her notable upbringing in the church.
“Received the Holy Ghost and baptism in Jesus Name at the age of 14,” Dr. Anderson, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling arguably one of the memorable spiritual moments of her life, during which she had effectively sold out to Almighty God within the walls of Apostolic Fountain Ministry Birthing Church Of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
And the rest, as they say, was history.
Consequently, that Dr. Anderson had deemed it essential to live for Christ, by all accounts, had given way to her spiritual gifts being discovered in ways unimaginable, particularly by her then-Pastor, James Whitmore, who recognized her gift of the prophesy some two years later.

A ministerial tenure that spans nearly four decades, Dr. Anderson became a Prophet in 1980. Her Pastoral tenure commenced in 2000.

“(I was being) used by God mightily at a young age,” said Dr. Anderson, who eventually served in what was known as missionary outreach, all the while exposing her immeasurable talents as a playwright and youth advisor.

Years later, Dr. Anderson began to steadily have a valiant impact in the Body of Christ, a trend that ultimately led to her becoming an ordain elder, as well as what was known as an office prophet, during which she was afforded the golden opportunity to display her administrative skills.

A native of Farmersville, Alabama, Dr. Anderson, 55, is the Senior Pastor of Emanuel Healing Deliverance Cathedral, her Bayville, New Jersey-area ministry that is located at 91 Atlantic City Boulevard.

For Dr. Anderson, her rise to evolving as a fixture in the Body of Christ comes amid a rash of unfavorable circumstances through which she’s managed to persevere and conquer.

“When chosen for the nursing administrative position, pastoral office, because of such negative influences in my life — verbal, sexual, physical and mental abuse of dyslexia and other learning disability — I was a woman who struggled with academic challenges,” Dr. Anderson recalled. “(I was) told I would never be nothing and was tormented by the spirit of apathy and abandonment.”

Still, such turmoil never in any way, shape, or form deterred this devout woman of faith from pressing and navigating toward the purpose for which God created her.


FAITH & FAMILY FOCUS 

Having initially began witnessing God set her aside for His use in ministry a little more than two decades ago, Dr. Anderson is a part of a family of resourceful preachers including her husband, Pastor William Anderson, her brother, Mikelin Oliver, her daughter, and her daughters, Prophetess Precious Lester and Elder Takola Gonzalez, both of whom work alongside her in ministry.

If nothing else, she was destined to become an even bigger and better version of herself with God, her Helper, steering the way.

“After embracing my call to the office as a Pastor, I experienced the withdrawal of those I supported and I called family and friends,” Dr. Anderson said. “(It was a) betrayal of covenant, which causes great emotional pain.”

At times, Dr. Anderson explained, such a tear-jerking, seemingly uncontrollable sequence appeared downright discomforting and uncalled for — for the most part.


“Many reneged on their promises, and I found myself in a dessert place alone, rejected, lonely, suspicious of not knowing who I could trust,” Dr. Anderson said. “I began to doubt that God had chosen me to lead His people.”


But what she had ultimately found out was that God’s ways were far more superior to hers — and anybody else’s for that matter.

“When I allow God voice to overpower all of my doubt, torment, shame and false influence, He taught me to trust Him every step of the way,” Dr. Anderson said. “I began to see it wasn’t what others thought about me or even what I thought about myself. I realize God chose and predestined me for the mandate that He put on by life, not man.”

SHE’S SOLD OUT — That Dr. Anderson had deemed it essential to live for Christ, by all accounts, had given way to her spiritual gifts being discovered, particularly by her then-Pastor, James Whitmore, who recognized her gift of the prophesy some two after she had become baptized with the precious Holy Ghost.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Through her immeasurable gifts to the Body of Christ, Dr. Anderson founded Laura Anderson Ministries in 2007, which is widely regarded as an international evangelist ministry, of sorts.

Nearly a decade later, she was officially installed as Senior Pastor of Emmanuel Healing Deliverance Cathedral, a milestones that has greatly enabled her to execute Doctrines Of Divinity, all the while assuming the illustrious offices of Epistle Bishop and Affirm Apostle.

A ministerial tenure that spans nearly four decades, Dr. Anderson became a Prophet in 1980. Her Pastoral tenure commenced in 2000.

HE WAS THERE ALL THE TIME — For Dr. Anderson, her rise to evolving as a fixture in the Body of Christ comes amid a rash of unfavorable circumstance through which she’s managed to persevere and conquer.

“I continue to soar, knowing God does not call the qualified; He qualifies the called,” said Dr. Anderson, who interestingly survived — and “defeated” — a premature death 1986 amid a battle with depression. “I’m glad I responded to the call. Yes, I believe He called and chose me with all of my imperfects to make perfect (His will.)”

For nearly 40 years — and counting.

Georgia author Gina F. Beverly heeds counsel of her Pastor, writes a pair of spiritually-empowering books


And the LORD said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name. (Exodus 33:17 KJV)

GOD’S LEADING LADY — For Gina F. Beverly, a Kingsland, Georgia-based author who is a native of New Orleans, her books have emerged amid an assortment of personal life experiences.

No one understands this notion more than Gina Fernandez Beverly whom, to her credit, diligently exercised this trend nearly a decade and a half or so ago.
“Approximately 14 years ago, I began to send out encouraging texts and emails to my friends and family,” Beverly told Making Headline News this week. “The word spread.”
So much so that once her spiritual leader had fielded word of Beverly’s favorable deed that essentially is synonymous to the familiar Biblical passage that is Ephesians 2:3, he subsequently suggested she do more with it, particularly as it pertains to advancing the kingdom.
“One day I sent the text to my Pastor, and after a few months, he encouraged me to write a book on what I was texting and emailing to everyone,” Beverly recalled.

For Beverly, a Kingsland, Georgia-based author who is a native of New Orleans, her books have emerged amid an assortment of personal life experiences.

“Throughout my life, I have had struggles with low self-esteem and self-worth,” Beverly said. “My reason for writing the books is to encourage others struggling with low self-esteem and self-worth.”

As for “Dysfunction Breeds Distorted Vision,” meanwhile, the overall reaction has essential been the same, considering Beverly’s readers have described this project as a “motivational, empowerment, and encouraging” one to anyone who has had or is currently having a dysfunctional or distorted vision of who they are, as cited at Amazon.com.

Having spent 22 years in the United States Naval Academy before her ceremonious retirement in 2008, Beverly began assembling “Do You Know Who You Are and What You Are Entitled To?” in June 2016 and “Dysfunction Breeds Distorted Vision” in May 2018.

SPIRITUAL TREND SETTER — “Approximately 14 years ago, I began to send out encouraging texts and emails to my friends and family,” Beverly told Making Headline News this week. “The word spread.”

As for the divine message she aspires to send to her audience through her books, Beverly emphasized, among other things, that it starts with one’s truth.


“Always stay encouraged,” Beverly said. “Learn to empower yourself and know and live your truth. Your truth is your truth, and never compare yourself to anyone else.”


A pair of books that have generated an array of favorable feedback — “These books have been empowering and encouraging,” this author said — Beverly is thoroughly convinced that her latest works are a part of the purpose for which God has created her.

“My flaws, mistakes, and internal fights I have had with myself are what the Lord used to help others,” said Beverly, adding that future books are forthcoming once she completes her advanced education.

Beverly is currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Biblical Counseling at Luther Rice Seminary and Bible College.

“I have had several speaking engagements,” Beverly said of her books. “My current focus is on completing school.”

A former Navy Chief Petty Officer ITC(SW), Beverly is grateful of the fact that God has strategically assigned her through her gifts as an author to empower and advance the kingdom, most notably during a time in which the people need it the most.

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


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


GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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

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


ADVANCING THE KINGDOM

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

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

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

Restored IV Purpose Ministries is located at 13624 Gamma Road.

Her itinerary also includes:

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

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

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

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

In that distinctly unique order.

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

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

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

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


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


SOLD OUT ON JESUS 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

One for the Father.

One for the Son.

One for the Holy Ghost.

In that order.

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

And if God said it, that settles it.

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

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

In no particularly order.

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

In essence, that’s what actually happened.


GOD’S LEADING LADY 

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

Only this time, it was the Holy Ghost.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

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

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

A beloved spokesperson for Christ topping the list.

With a $500 price tag, Maryland author Prophetess Dr. Anita Naves’ “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man” is a ‘must buy!’


For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. (Romans 8:18 KJV)


WALKING IN HER DESTINY 

ALL GOD’S DOING — A little less than one year removed from his its much-anticipated release, Prophetess Dr. Anita G. Naves’ “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man” has caught the attention of a host of celebs, most notably renowned Gospel recording artist Pastor Shirley Caesar.

Prophetess Dr. Anita G. Naves recalls like yesterday how it all went down, remembers vividly how her employer had unceremoniously given her the dreaded pink slip.

“God gave me the vision to write the book in 2010 after I was laid off from the Prince George’s County Public School system as a result of a reduction in force,” Naves, a Maryland-based author and businesswoman, told Making Headline News this week.
The book to which Naves is referencing is “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man,” a basic spiritual guide to understanding the divine gift of the ministry of prophecy, its power, its purpose, and its prophets.

THE PRICE IS RIGHT

WORTH THE MONEY — Naves goes to great lengths to share her experience of being awaken into a heavenly trance, where she was specifically instructed to listen, take notes, and to write this book on behalf of God’s heart desire, to let the world know that He is the Ministry Gift of prophecy. Moreover, Naves — as mandated by God — raises awareness and provides sound biblical credibility to the workings and execution of God’s plans for His ministry gift of prophecy and His prophets. The cost for this awe-inspiring and life-changing book: $500.

Officially released on August 17, 2018, Naves’ “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man” is deemed an inspiring tribute to what this Christian-based writer labels “the divine and empowering supernatural” ministry gift of prophecy,” according to a detail introduction of this book by Author House.

Naves’ project is widely regarded as history-making one, considering it is believed to be that no book in American history has sold for $500 multiple times over.

Labeled a “miracle book,” Naves’ written work may be purchased for a lesser amount from Authorhouse, she said. But those who have purchased the book directly from the author at $500 have reported what she describes as amazing “financial and healing breakthroughs” in areas of their lives, where stagnation had set in.
Also, Talent Scots for New Readers International along with MGM studios have sought Naves for a movie screen adaptation deal. This author, in fact, was told that her book rated highly for best new author for screen adaptation offer.

Interestingly, Naves goes to great lengths to share her experience of being awaken into a heavenly trance, where she was specifically instructed to listen, take notes, and to write this book on behalf of God’s heart desire, to let the world know that He is the Ministry Gift of prophecy. Moreover, Naves — as mandated by God — raises awareness and provides sound biblical credibility to the workings and execution of God’s plans for His ministry gift of prophecy and His prophets.

The cost for this awe-inspiring and life-changing book: $500.

Nope, this is no typo, mind you.

Rather, for Naves, the unorthodox price tag for this book was mandated by God Almighty Himself.

And if God said it, that settles it.

How else to explain why much to Naves’ delight, more than a dozen consumers have already invested in “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man” which, to her credit, undoubtedly is a sign of things to come for a book that is steadily having a massive kingdom impact.


“Everything in my life at that time seemed to be going wrong,” said Naves, recalling the assortment of hardships she endured before God had strategically assigned her to compose her new book. “But it was in that moment God started to tell me that He would reframe my spiritual beliefs with really knowing His word and understanding Bible and really knowing His voice.”


Consequently, it wasn’t long thereafter that Naves began to establish more of a close-knit relationship with God during her season in the wilderness.

“The Holy Spirit led me to a Christian church Bible college in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, where I begin to learn and study the Bible on another level,” Naves explained. “While at the same time, God was speaking to me about the gift of prophecy within me, telling me how He would perfect it all the more, so I could teach truth to others in a more perfected way.”

For Naves, such teachings arose, courtesy of her newly-produced book which, truth be told, is worth the $500 price of admission.


MAKING GLOBAL HEADLINES 

“God gave me the vision to write the book in 2010 after I was laid off from the Prince George’s County Public School system as a result of a reduction in force,” Naves, a Maryland-based author and businesswoman, told Making Headline News this week.

“The vision for book started to emerge in within me like a roast cooking in a crock pot to perfection over several years with God adding the special ingredients,” said Naves, who needed somewhere in the neighborhood of six years to complete her book.

Ironically, her vision for assembling “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man” arose amid an emotionally-driven fantasy, this devout woman of faith, recalls.

“I felt compelled to write the book after I had a dream that I went to heaven and was sitting before God’s Face, listening to Him tell me about How He wanted the truth to be known about the spirit gift of prophecy and His real prophets in the earth versus the fake deceiving ones,” Naves explained. “In the dream, I was surrounded by pure bright lights…the brightest I have never seen before in earth.

“These dreams came at several times of the early morning until I finally got up and started journaling the information that had been downloaded in my spirit. God told in the dream that I could be trusted to speak from truth…not from man’s perspective, but from His heart’s perspective, backing it up with solid Bible scripture.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

A little less than one year removed from his its much-anticipated release, Naves’ “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man” has caught the attention of a host of celebs, most notably renowned Gospel recording artist Pastor Shirley Caesar.

Also, Naves has announced that other written works are on the horizon and are expected to be released as early as next year.

“I am currently working on putting the finishing touches on them,” said Naves, referring to her forthcoming project entitled, “PARTY With Me,” which is a motivational journal of self-acceptance through God’s love.

ALL SMILES NOW — Officially released on August 17, 2018, Naves’ “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man” is deemed an inspiring tribute to what this Christian-based writer labels “the divine and empowering supernatural” ministry gift of prophecy,” according to a detail introduction of this book by Author House.

Naves other upcoming book is “Pssst…Follow The Clues,” which will address how to discern possible relationship incompatibilities by paying attention to the clues.

“God keeps surprising me with signs, wonders, and miracles, even in the midst of trials,” Naves said. “I knew the book was powerful when I got fired from my job in 2009.

“It feels like I’m living a dream,” Naves continued.

Surely, with God, all things are possible, as this brilliantly gifted author has discovered.

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.
