Amid rash of setbacks, Maryland author Lawan D. Ferguson’s ‘Overcoming Adversity’ book is officially released


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


PURPOSED FOR PAIN 

GOD’S LEADING LADY — Lady Lawan D. Ferguson, an Upper Marlboro, Maryland-based author, recently unleashed an assortment of spiritually-empowering testimonies, an awe-inspiring trend that came wrapped up in a book entitled, “Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past the Pain.”

Come hell or high water, say this about Lady Lawan D. Ferguson:

She’s undoubtedly going to find the strength to tell of God’s goodness and mercies, courtesy of a few life-changing testimonies.
Just recently, in fact, this Upper Marlboro, Maryland-based author steadfastly unleashed an assortment of spiritually-empowering testimonies, an awe-inspiring trend that came wrapped up in a book entitled, “Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past the Pain.”
A book that made its ceremoniously launch in May 2019, but was released approximately a month later, Ferguson’s “Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past the Pain” singles out the dreaded adversary, during which this writer says customarily unfolds in our lives to keep us paralyzed and from reaching our fullest potential in God, as mentioned in a detailed introduction of this book at Amazon.com.

“We feel trapped and oftentimes not able to find a way of escape,” said a spokesperson for Ferguson’s ‘Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past the Pain.’ “Through the roughest of trials and tribulations, we forget that we serve a mighty God who can do all things but fail. ‘Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past The Pain’ is a book of personal testimonies that will enlighten, inspire, encourage, teach and motivate you to push beyond those difficult times and to trust God when in the midst of it all.”

A 145-page book that Ferguson began assembling two years ago, her latest written work initially was comprised of a dozen authors, a few of whom fell off from the project amid what the featured writer describes as a flurry of “setbacks, restructures, and reorganizations.”

Consequently, that gave way to a brief delay until “God was able to cut out the riffraff,” Ferguson said, thus reconstruct a group with what she dubs a “chosen generation of eight amazing co-authors.”

A book signing for Ferguson’s latest book is scheduled for August 24 at the Holiday Inn Reagan National Airport, located at 2650 Richmond Highway in nearby Arlington, Virginia.


SAVE THE DATE

After forming a strategic team of authors, Ferguson had managed to spearhead and move forward with a spiritually-empowering book that figures to become a fixture in the Body of Christ — much sooner than later.

“This book is to encourage, inspire, motivate, and aid others to trust God in all they do,” Ferguson told Making Headline News this week. “God has called me to be a light in a world of darkness and to have compassion for people and deep passion for (Him). God has called me to be an ambassador for the kingdom, to minister the word of God and to aid others in reaching their fullest potential in a purposed-filled life.”

A book that’s a little more than a month removed from its release, the feedback for Ferguson’s “Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past The Pain” has been mostly favorable, she said.

“(The) testimonials of the readers are very positive,” Ferguson said. “People are being healed, set free, and delivered as a result of reading these awesome and Holy Ghost-inspired testimonies.”

A native of Washington, D.C., Ferguson is an accomplished licensed minister and an ordained deaconess, who serves as a trustee at Christ Creative Baptist Church (or CCBC) in nearby Temple Hills, Maryland.

As for her notable authorship tenure, she’s made valiant contributions to other collaborative and bestselling projects: “Perfectly Imperfect: Seeing Yourself Through The Eyes Of God” (released in July 2016); “I Survived: Written By Survivors for Survivors” (released on April 5, 2019).

She founded and established leadership to the CCBC Women’s ministry, “Sisters Aiding In Transforming Sisters” (or S.A.IN.T.S.), which strategically focuses on and aids in cultivating, redesigning, transforming, encouraging, motivating, uplifting, and empowering women in their individual and spiritual lives.

Widely known throughout the Body of Christ as Lady Ferguson, this devout woman of faith is married to the Reverend Dr. George St. Anthony Ferguson, who is the Founder and Senior Pastor of CCBC.

Her educational resume includes having earned an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Business Management, a Bachelor of Arts in Religion and Theological Studies, a Master of Business Administration with an emphasis in Acquisitions, and a Master’s certificate in Government Contracts.

Interestingly, Lady Ferguson has served over 28 years in federal government and is presently a licensed coach, as well as a financial aid and college mentoring coach.

As for her latest book, Ferguson is especially grateful of the notion that it is as good as advertised.

“(I just want? to help someone get through a rough time in life by sharing encouraging testimonies of triumph over adversity,” she said.

Well said by this, a true overcomer in Christ.

Queen, New York’s own Juanita Payne one of 52 authors to contribute to bestselling ‘Soulful Prayers’ project


For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. (Jeremiah 29:11 KJV)


PURPOSED FOR PAYNE 

WELL CONNECTED — For Maryland author Juanita Payne, all it took was a divine connection with one of her social media followers that impressed it upon God’s heart to position her to reap a supernatural blessing for such a time as now, a time that had ultimately given way to her putting her immeasurable spiritual gift on display for the entire world to see. Payne is one of 52 authors to contribute to the bestselling winning book entitled, “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”

DALLAS — God’s thoughts toward Juanita Payne undoubtedly are of peace.

Amongst the biggest reasons is that Payne is steadfastly armed with a solid, resilient bend-but-don’t-break prayer life.
“As a woman of God, I have always ministered to people willingly and in every place that I go,” Payne told Making Headline News this week. “It’s always comes natural to learn from, and to use my life experiences as a way to help empower people that I encounter on a daily basis. With being blessed with the opportunity, I’ve set out to continuing my ministry through the book project.”
The book project to which Payne is alluding is the globally-acclaimed, bestselling winning written work entitled, “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”

For Payne, all it took was a divine connection with one of her social media followers that impressed it upon God’s heart to position her to reap a supernatural blessing for such a time as now, a time that had ultimately given way to her putting her immeasurable spiritual gift on display for the entire world to see.


“I corresponded with a mutual friend and we came to the conclusion that the progression of my spiritual journey included the Soul Movement, and that this was something ordained from God,” Payne said. “I felt that was imperative that we both take part in the continuation of the project.”


And so it came to pass, the God-ordained contributions by Payne, one of 52 Soulful Prayers contributors, who wasted little time obeying the Voice of her Creator only to emerge as the beneficiary of a much-anticipated harvest.

So much for the slew of unfavorable situations and circumstances Payne has endured during this thing called life.

FOR STARTERS — Prior to joining forces with Soulful Prayers authors, Payne co-authored “Beyond Her Reflection,” a book that was officially completed around this time last year and a project that led to this writer being nominated for an IALA award for bestselling co-author.

What matters at this point, quite frankly, is that this devout woman of faith was destined to outlast and conquer virtually every obstacle that emerged in her life to challenge her faith, a trend that has greatly enabled her to live on the larger side of God as a result.

“As a single mother, one of my biggest challenges I faced was overcoming some of the long-term damage that was done in my family,” Payne recalled. “In Soulful Prayers, my divine message is a request of protection and safety for our children, especially our daughters.

“In noticing similar damage in other families, I feel that it is important to tell the world that we shouldn’t feel ashamed to come to God, as He is always available for us and ready to help,” Payne, a native of Queens, New York, continued. “Our daughters encounter both seen and unseen forces that they may not understand or be ready to deal with, and my prayer covers the topics of spiritual warfare, renewal of the mind, and the gift of favor from God.”

Prior to joining forces with the Soulful Prayers authors, Payne co-authored “Beyond Her Reflection,” a book that was officially completed around this time last year, a project that led to this writer being nominated for an IALA award for bestselling co-author.

And so it came to pass, the God-ordained contributions by Payne, one of 52 Soulful Prayers contributors, who wasted little time obeying the Voice of her Creator only to emerge as the beneficiary of a much-anticipated harvest.

“My contribution to this book covered what I had learned growing up in New York and how dealing with my mother’s addiction helped me along my spiritual walk with God,” Payne, who resides in Waldolf, Maryland, explained.

As for the immediate feedback she’s garnered since the release of Soulful Prayers, Payne describes it as nothing short of “amazing.”

“The general reception and the feedback I’ve received have nothing but amazing,” Payne said. “When I shared the story behind my book with a coworker, I felt an immediate sense of conviction from him. After thanking me, he told me that as a father to six daughters, he always felt the call to strengthen his prayer life for them. I’m so grateful, because in using my story with the guidance of wisdom of God, I’m able to help create powerful moments and improve other people’s prayer life.”

IN HER OWN WORDS — “As a woman of God, I have always ministered to people willingly and in every place that I go,” Payne told Making Headline News this week. “It’s always comes natural to learn from, and to use my life experiences as a way to help empower people that I encounter on a daily basis. With being blessed with the opportunity, I’ve set out to continuing my ministry through the book project.”

Which, all things considered, is synonymous to the purpose for which God has created her, Payne acknowledged.

“As a woman, I know that I always have to be a strong figure not only for myself, but for my children,” said Payne, announcing that she is almost certain she will take part in Polote-Williamson’s ‘Soulful Prayers 2.’ “In addition, my own mother was a dedicated prayer warrior and set an amazing example for me. In my continual walk with God and witnessing what my mother did for me, it led me to intercessory prayer. It’s an honor to be able to further extend my calling into other mediums, as the possibilities are limitless.

“My journey has also led me to study health and nutrition in-depth, as I wanted to fully understand how we can better our day to day lifestyles as Christians  and how we can strengthen both our physical and spiritual connection to God,” Payne continued. “In 2017, I graduated from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and became a certified health coach. My research has lead me to commit to my own book project set to release within the next two years.”

Now we know why God’s thoughts toward His beloved child undoubtedly are of peace.

Virginia businesswoman Ieshia Leverette goes from ex-felon to well-educated and established entrepreneur


These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33 KJV)


A LIVING TESTIMONY

WOMAN OF MANY HATS — A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Ieshia Nicole Leverette is Fredericksburg, Virginia-based entrepreneur, one who’s widely known for assuming a variety of roles. (Photos By Casandra Loiacono)

For what it’s worth, Ieshia Leverette was only keeping it 100.

“I could have been a statistic,” Leverette, an ex-felon, said during a recent interview with Making Headline News, recalling the slew of the obstacles and hurdles about which she had to clear and overcome during the course of her young life.

“I have seen a lot and overcome a lot by choice and circumstances, but I never let a closed door stop me.”
She’s got that right.
Credit Leverette’s fervent desire and steadfast determination to defy arguably the grandest of odds as the biggest reasons she’s managed to make continuous strides as a thriving, progressive businesswoman.
An entrepreneurship tenure that dates back to 2010, Leverette’s inspiration for functioning in her element stems from learning of the various challenges other women have faced.

A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Leverette, 31, is Fredericksburg, Virginia-based entrepreneur, one who’s widely known for assuming a variety of roles.

An entrepreneurship track record she’s been afforded to put on display in several of establishments around the country, Leverette is an accomplished real estate team owner/operator, as well as a life coach, author, T-Shirt’s and pod cast host.

While she doesn’t shy away from the notion that she could have very well been a statistic, amongst the things about which Leverette is appreciative of the fact that she’s gone to great lengths to embrace her imperfections, which has greatly enabled her to pour into the lives of others.

HOLDING IT DOWN — An entrepreneurship track record she’s been afforded to put on display in several of establishment around the country, Leverette is an accomplished real estate team owner/operator, as well as a life coach, author, T-Shirt’s and pod cast host.

“Through being a realtor, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting so many people from so many different walks of life, and I am most humbly fulfilled when I am able to pour into their lives,” Leverette said. “I am the one they call to celebrate with them, because I impact them in a very real way.”

As Leverette explains, her steadfast commitment to impacting and enriching lives essentially have become the feature objective, of sorts, to her divine calling as a successful businesswoman.

“I don’t worry about the buying and selling of the home as much as I do in mentoring them, guiding them and helping them see their own potential,” said Leverette, explaining how her competitive drive in life has propelled her to start a host of business ventures. “It’s an unmatched experience they get with me as a person.  Everyone I come across, I tend to affect their life in a very real way, even if they don’t tell me until many years later. I have been called to pour into others’ lives and show them another side of them that they didn’t know existed.”

LEADING BY EXAMPLE — While she doesn’t shy away from the notion that she could have very well been a statistic, amongst the things about which Leverette is appreciative is the fact that she’s gone to great lengths to embrace her imperfections, which has greatly enabled her to pour into others’ lives.

To her credit, Leverette certain possesses the education and training, which have contributed mightily to her sustained entrepreneurship success.

A 2005 graduate of Cleveland Height High School — she actually graduated one year early thanks in large part the administration’s approval that allowed her to take additional classes — Leverette enrolled at Cleveland State University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Public Relations and Advertisement in 2010.

Consequently, she’s enrolled at Argosy University of Hawaii, where she acquired an MBA in Marketing in 2012.

As for her assortment of business ventures that accommodate individuals ranging mostly between the ages of 27 to 55, credit Leverette’s wealth of wisdom, coupled with her spirit of compassion as the reasons those with whom she customarily crosses paths often come away overwhelmingly empowered and encouraged, thus acquiring a new lease on life.

Just like she has ever since she delved off into the ever-so-competitive world of entrepreneurship.


“My business allows me to watch others become confident in whom they are. I love building tomorrow’s leaders.  I love seeing progression. I am even more enthralled to watch women regain their independence, because we often forget about ourselves taking care of others.” — Virginia Businesswoman Ieshia Leverette


Interestingly, what it all boils down to, Leverette emphasized, is devising way to impact lives — and to it daily.

For the rest of her life.

“To impact lives that would otherwise continue in the same pattern,” said Leverette, when asked what her personal mission is for running the day-to-day operations of her business. “To make people see themselves clearly and with power. To help people stop doubting their abilities. People ask me why I create my own competition, but honestly if you become better, then I’ve done my job.”

An entrepreneurship tenure that dates back to 2010, Leverette’s inspiration for functioning in her element stems from learning of the various challenges other women have faced.

STAYING THE COURSE 

DESTINY STEPS — As Leverette explains, her steadfast commitment to impacting and enriching lives essentially has become the feature objective, of sorts, to her divine calling as a successful businesswoman.

“(I become inspired by) women who have lost their power in a marriage or after having children,” Leverette said. “People who are just as lost and don’t know where to start. It’s really just how my heart operates. I just want people to know all that there is to know about the life they live today and how to maximize that time and make it the most fulfilling.”

Talk about having mounted a dramatic comeback for the ages, from a felon to a successful entrepreneur, one who’s undoubtedly living her best life.

“I am just a woman that got a felony 12 years ago and didn’t let it stop me from becoming who I am today,” Leverette said. “I’ve always fought to overcome any things thrown my way. From having 3 jobs while on a full-time school schedule, to becoming an entrepreneur and dominating a male dominant industry purely off of me being genuine, caring, and motivational to others.”

All the while keeping it 100 in the process.

Virginia author Christina Johnson recalls her son’s cancer battle, courtesy of tear-jerking memoir


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. (Romans 8:28 NIV)


GOD’S MIRACLE CHILD 

ALL FOR DAVID — Virginia author Christina Johnson needed somewhere in the neighborhood of seven months to produce the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Fighting for King David,” a memoir of this mother’s journey with her child, who’s fighting childhood cancer.

For Christina Johnson, it all started out as a journal, one that was assembled within the walls of a local hospital.

As she recalled vividly, it all unfolded amid her son’s battle with Neuroblastoma, which reportedly is one of the world’s top three childhood cancers.

“The vision was given to me while I was in the hospital with my son while he has been going through cancer treatment,” Johnson — widely known as Crissy — told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “Before it was a book, it was a journal that the hospital gave to me to keep up with what was going on with him each day. There was a place where I would write my feeling and next thing you know, it was a book.”
And the rest, as they say, was history.

Johnson, in fact, needed somewhere in the neighborhood of seven months to produce the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Fighting for King David,” a memoir of this mother’s journey with her son, who’s fighting childhood cancer.

For Johnson, a Virginia-based author and alumna of Old Dominion University, her quest to assemble her book was accompanied a great deal of transparency.

“I decided to write the book to be as transparent as possible about what I dealt with as a mother and caregiver to my son,” Johnson explained. “I was also in my last semester of college at the time of my son’s diagnosis, six weeks away to be exact.”

Still, that Johnson demonstrated that kind of bend-but-don’t-break faith that ultimately kept her in high spirits, thus fueled her desire to remain focus on academics, even through her rash of adversities, virtually every goal and ambition was accomplished.

BOOK HER — Having accepted a few invitations to public share her stories and life-changing testimonies, Johnson is thoroughly convinced that “Fighting For King David” is synonymous to the purpose for which God has created her.

Yep, that’s just like God, providing for his child a valiant sense of direction in the midst of the storm, as only He could.

“I talked about my struggles in finishing my degree and also about the sudden death of my aunt all within weeks of my son’s diagnosis,” Johnson recalled. “I wanted to share my testimony and speak of how God kept me through all of this, how I still had to be a wife and mother to four children during all of this.”

Most importantly, Johnson was determined to encourage the masses just as God had strategically assigned her to through “Fighting for King David.”

As Johnson recalled, her vision to write her first book unfolded amid her son’s battle with Neuroblastoma, which reportedly is one of the world’s top three childhood cancers.

“I wanted to show the world that God is still performing miracles,” said Johnson, an accomplished businesswoman who is the owner and CEO of Crissy Designs LLC.

Now with her very first book having made its ceremonious presence on the market, Johnson emphasized that the divine message is rather direct and straight to the point.

“The divine message is that God still heals and He won’t put more on you then you can bear,” Johnson said. “Cancer does not discriminate.”

As expected, the feedback since the release of Johnson’s book has been overwhelmingly favorable.

GOD’S LITTLE BALLER 

Johnson was determined to encourage the masses just as God strategically assigned her to through “Fighting for King David.”

“I have been given positive feedback about my book,” she said. “My story have touched so many lives. I have been asked how I was able to still succeed even through the struggle. I think my purpose is to be a voice for families who have a child that is struggling with cancer, to advocate and to bring awareness.”

Having accepted a few invitations to public share her stories and life-changing testimonies, Johnson is thoroughly convinced that “Fighting For King David” is synonymous to the purpose for which God has created her.

VICTORY STANCE 

For Johnson, a Virginia-based author and alumna of Old Dominion University, her quest to assemble her book was accompanied a great deal of transparency.

To her credit and much to her delight, there’s other notable projects she endeavors to produce and pass along to the masses, she said.

Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle delighted Virginia is back in the Final Four for the first time in 35 years

THEY’RE BACK 

LONG TIME COMING — After a 35-year drought, the Virginia men’s basketball program is back in the Final Four. The champions out of the South Region, the top-seeded Cavaliers (33-3) will face Midwest Region champion, fifth-seeded Auburn (30-9), Saturday at 5:09 p.m. CST from U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

DALLAS — The Virginia men’s basketball program is back in the Final Four for the first time in 35 years.

Amongst the UVA alums who seems the proudest is Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle.

Prior to Friday night’s game versus the Memphis Grizzlies in the American Airlines Center, Carlisle spoke of how delighted he is to witness Virginia atone for last year’s NCAA Tournament’s first-round exit by reaching the national semifinals.
The champions out of the South Region, the top-seeded Cavaliers (33-3) will face Midwest Region champion, fifth-seeded Auburn (30-9), Saturday at 5:09 p.m. CST from U. S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

The second national semifinal matchup will pit No. 3 seed Texas Tech (30-6), the West Region champion, squaring off against East Region champion, No. 2 seed Michigan State (32-6).

For UVA, which became the first ever No. 1 seed to lose to a No. 16 seed when it was dealt a 74–54 drubbing by the University of Maryland-Baltimore County in last year’s opening round of the Big Dance, Carlisle applauded Cavaliers coach Tony Bennett for a job well done with a program that is making its third Final Four appearance in school history (1981, 1984, 2019). 

IN RETROSPECT 

THE LAST TIME — Carlisle (left) was a member of Virginia’s 1984 Final Four squad that lost in the national semifinals to Akeem Olajuwon and No. 2 seed Houston, 49-47, in overtime.

“They’ve been consistently great all year,” Carlisle said of the Cavaliers, winners of four straight and 13 of their last 14. “I think they’ve only lost two or three games by two or three points. They have a real resolve as a team.”

In reaching the Final Four for the first time since 1984, Virginia demonstrated some much-needed resolve in the waning moments of the South Region final against third-seeded Purdue.

The Cavaliers, in fact, needed a rather awkward buzzer-beater by junior swingman Mamadi Diakite just as time expired to tie the game at 70 and force overtime, then outscored the Boilermakers, 10-5, in the extra session to preserve the win, thus erasing the memory of last year’s opening-round heartbreaker to UMBC.

According to ESPN’s Matchup Predictor, Virginia has a 79.9 percent chance of defeating Auburn, which is making its first Final Four appearance in school history.

Michigan State, meanwhile, has a 61.1 percent chance to upend Texas Tech, according to ESPN’s Matchup Predictor.

As for who Carlisle’s predicting to win the first of two national semifinal games, well, that essentially goes without saying.

PRAYER ANSWERED — The Cavaliers needed a buzzer-beater by junior swingman Mamadi Diakite just as time expired to tie the game at 70 and force overtime, then outscored the Boilermakers, 10-5, in the extra session to preserve the win, erasing the memory of last year’s opening-round heartbreaker to UMBC. According to ESPN’s Matchup Predictor, UVA has a 79.9 percent chance of defeating Auburn, which is making its first Final Four appearance in school history.

“They have a style that you need into today’s game,” said Carlisle, who was a member of Virginia’s 1984 Final Four squad that lost in the national semifinals to No. 2 seed Houston, 49-47, in overtime. “They preach defense first thing and they really understand how to play with each other. You know, the way they won the Purdue game last week was really special.”

Now that they’ve atoned for last year’s postseason disappointment, can the grit and grind Cavaliers manage two more wins to capture the school’s first ever national title?

“They’ve got a real chance now,” Carlisle said.

With a slight grin.

That, much to his delight and to the satisfaction of the rest of the UVA faithful, is a far cry from last year’s disastrous turn of events in the Big Dance.

Virginia Life Coach Debra Kay fulfilling her divine purpose as a Christian-based author


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


A-O-KAY JOB 

GREATER IS COMING — Having written 10 books to date, Debra Kay’s featured project is entitled, “The Woman On The Inside Is Greater Than The Woman You See,” an informative, spiritually gut-checking written document she officially released in December 2010.

DALLAS — Earlier this week, Debra Kay was going on and on about her immeasurable, compelling gifts as an accomplished author.

Truth be told, she’s earned every right to.

“I am usually writing two or three books at a time, as I am right now,” Kay told Making Headline News. “It does not usually take me any longer than six months to start and finish a book. Things are a little bit hectic being a grandmother, but very rewarding.”

Having written 10 books to date, Kay’s featured project is entitled, “The Woman On The Inside Is Greater Than The Woman You See,” an informative, spiritually gut-checking written document she officially released in December 2010.
An authorship tenure that spans a little more than a decade, Kay’s initial book had come full circle in September 2006, approximately four years after she steadfastly exercised her faith to produce it.
AFTER GOD’S OWN HEART — Since delving off into the ever-so-competitive world of authorship, the general consensus amongst Kay’s book is that she’s undoubtedly an accomplished and brilliant author, one who doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s on fire for God.

“God gave me the vision to write this book in the summer of 2002,” Kay said. “I started this book with the title at the end of 2006. I completed this book in September of 2007.”

As Kay emphasized, it is a book — though it has been on the market for quite some time — she’s aiming to reintroduce to the general public, in large part because “The Woman On The Inside Is Greater Than The Woman You See” is just as prevalent today than it was when it made it ceremonious debut in 2010.

“The single most important reason I chose to write this book is because I have been underneath the feet of people since I was a young person,” Kay explained. “I am a survivor of depression, suicidal thoughts, inferior toward others, and very low self-esteem, which I believe runs in my family with many of the women.”

For what it’s worth, however, Kay’s featured book has brought about renewed sense of enthusiasm for this Martinsville, Virginia-area author, both in the natural and the spirit.


“This book is produced to allow women to know that the greater one is on the inside,” said Kay, who’s widely known also as a Christian-based Life Coach. “You can be beautiful on the outside, but still jacked up on the inside without Christ. When He indwells in you, you are enough.”


Thanks in large part to her life-changing connection with Jesus, Kay not only rediscovered her God-given worth but, more than anything, she’s managed connect with the purpose for which she was created.

“It took many years even after salvation for me to know my worth,” Kay said. “Two bad marriages and I am still single, but at least now I have the wisdom to know what a good man is. I have gained clarity on my worth and it is tied to Jesus, not to a natural man. The book talks about the different stages of my life and how I overcame (them). There is a greater book coming even after this. The half has not been told of my story yet.”

Speaking of “greater” books, Kay is responsible for having produced nine other written works, her latest that is entitled, “How To Walk Out Your Salvation With The Lord Jesus Christ,” which was released in October 2015.

Besides that book, Kay authored the following projects:

  • The Joy Of The Lord Is Our Strength (2008)
  • The Restored Woman (2010)
  • Woman Don’t Die In Your Pain (2011)
  • Can Your Character Handle The Anointing (2008)
  • Confront Your Anger: Send It Back To Calvary (2014)
  • Position Yourself To Be Used By God (2012)
  • Walking In Tampered Faith: It Is A Destroyer (2012) and,
  • Suicide Is Not The Answer (2012).

Since delving off into the ever-so-competitive world of authorship, the general consensus amongst Kay’s book is that she’s undoubtedly an accomplished and brilliant author, one who doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s on fire for God.

An authorship tenure that spans a little more than a decade, Kay’s initial book had come full circle in September 2006, approximately four years after she steadfastly exercised her faith to produce it.

“The feedback I have heard locally is that the books is so good they cannot put it down,” Kay said of ‘The Woman On The Inside Is Greater Than The Woman You See.”

All things considered, coupled with her divine calling, Kay is just giddy that God has set her aside for His use.

“God told me in 1998 that I would be traveling the world telling my story,” said Kay, the CEO of Debra Kay Coaching By Dezign and Inspiration Business DK Inspirations. “I have a lot to say; I just need a platform to say it in. These books are a part of that purpose (in that) God loves us all, but when women realize they are worth more than a sex toy, we can help build up other women and the cycle of depression, loneliness, suicide, and low self-image can be reduced.”

Virginia author LaShana Lloyd conquers slew of odds, shares testimonies in awe-inspiring books

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES LASHANA LLOYD 


LaShana Lloyd undoubtedly aspires daily to live and savor a faith led life.

Literally and figuratively.

Consider, for instance, how Lloyd essentially drove home such an intriguing notion by way of a rather compelling Facebook post shortly after 8 a.m. EST on Sunday.

Said Lloyd in a spirited, thought-provoking post that was comprised of what she dubbed, “True Words of Wisdom:”


SET ASIDE FOR GOD’S USE — A well-respected military veteran, LaShana Lloyd is accomplished businesswoman and author, who has been blessed — and stayed true to herself — mightily, considering she has made her presence in the ever-so-popular world of authorship.

People will only have as much control as you allow them to have. If you keep letting a person hurt you, they will only hurt you more. If you keep letting a person use you, they will not stop using you. If you allow a person to get comfortable with disrespecting you, there’s a high possibility that they will not leave that place of acting like that toward you anytime soon. But the antidote to all of these problems and those similar to these is putting a stop to it. It’s as simple as that. When you understand who you are and how valuable of a person you are, you will no longer choose to settle for being treated less than that. Grow into the confidence God has given you and you will grow into the person He has created you to be, a person of worth.


Some pretty dauntless and awe-inspiring words by a devout woman of faith whom, to her credit, has remained true to herself both in the natural and spirit.

A well-respected military veteran, Lloyd is accomplished Woodbridge, Virginia businesswoman and author, who has been blessed — and stayed true to herself — mightily, considering she has made her presence in the ever-so-popular world of authorship.

A native of Clio, South Carolina, Lloyd is amongst 22 writers who joined forces to compose the book entitled, “You Have No Idea The Hell I’ve Been Through,” a collaborative and informative written document whereby they miraculously spoke about how God steered them from what they described as pain to purpose.

For Lloyd, her assortment of emotionally-driven, life-changing testimonies have benefited and enhanced not only her faith walk with God, but rather those whom, by all accounts, have endured similar experiences.

“To give my testimonies about how I overcame witnessing my father abuse my mother, being sexually abused as a child, and being black balled from the military,” said Lloyd, during a weekend interview with Making Headline News, when asked what is her purpose for choosing to collaborate last summer with a host of authors to compose You Have No Idea The Hell I’ve Been Through.

PURCHASE LASHANA LLOYD’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Whats-Blocking-Your-Confidence-Effective/dp/1946756350/

Not to be outdone, Lloyd is also responsible for having written yet another remarkably compelling book, this one entitled, “What’s Blocking Your Confidence: Effective Ways To Conquer Your Fears.”

Powered by Rejoice Essential Publishing, Lloyd’s “What’s Blocking Your Confidence: Effective Ways To Conquer Your Fears” was officially released on August 11, 2018, and is centered largely on this Christian-based writer providing some pertinent information, most notably that which fear, as well as the essential tools needed to walk in the confidence that God has given us.

This book also speaks about a great deal of transparency shared by Lloyd, particularly during which she was once bound by fear and how God miraculously delivered her from it.

PURCHASE LASHANA’S BOOK HERE, TOO: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/whats-blocking-your-confidence-lashana-lloyd/1129301054


THE ROMANS 8:18 FACTOR — A native of Clio, South Carolina, Lloyd is amongst 22 writers who joined forces to compose the book entitled, “You Have No Idea The Hell I’ve Been Through,” a collaborative and informative written document whereby they miraculously spoke about how God steered them from what they described as pain to purpose.

“There is hope for those who believe that living in fear is the way of life,” said a spokesperson in a detailed breakdown of Lloyd’s What’s Blocking Your Confidence: Effective Ways To Conquer Your Fears at Amazon.com. “You no longer have to be bound by fear. You can be set free. In this book, you will understand what fear is, and how the enemy (satan) is using fear against you. Find out what happens when you allow fear to override your faith.”

As expected, the feedback since the much-anticipated releases of these books have been overwhelmingly favorable, Lloyd acknowledged.

BASKING IN GOD’S GLORY — As expected, the feedback since the much-anticipated releases of these books have been overwhelmingly favorable, Lloyd acknowledged.

“I was blown away at how so many women told me my story touched them,” Lloyd said. “They were shocked at the things I had went through and how God was able to heal me from all of the pain, betrayal, and fears that I had gone through. So many women are embarrassed by the challenges they had to face — and that’s exactly what the enemy wants — but because of my transparency, so many women and men can be set free, stay free, and receive the confidence that God has for them.”

Having accepted what she labels her God-mandated calling to authorship in 2015, Lloyd doesn’t shy away from the notion that God is using her as a vessel to write in such a fashion that her immeasurable gifts would ultimately to draw others to or back to Him.

“The Father told me that He did not allow me to go through everything that I went through to watch me suffer,” said Lloyd, adding that she’s currently fielding speaking engagement requests to promote of her books. “He allowed me to go through everything that I have gone through so that it can be used to help others, especially women. I have a passion to encourage women all over the world.

THE LORD’S DOING — Having accepted what she labels her God-mandated calling to authorship in 2015, Lloyd doesn’t shy away from the notion that God is using her as a vessel to write in such a fashion that her immeasurable gifts would ultimately to draw others to or back to Him.

“Encouraging others with the words that I write and speak is how I am able to not only become stronger every time I release these words, but how others can gain the strength and confidence that they need so that their testimony can come forth as well.”

Eloquently said by this devout woman of faith, one who undoubtedly aspires daily to live and savor a faith led life.

Literally and figuratively.

Washington, D.C. area realtor Aaron Person making much noise in ever-so-competitive real estate industry

Just recently, longtime Washington, D.C. area realtor Aaron Person was asked why is it important to esteem others daily highly than himself, a notable suggestion by which the Apostle Paul once offered to the church at Philippi.

MAKING MAJOR STRIDES — An Upper Marlboro, Maryland native and an alumnus of North Carolina Central University, Aaron D. Person is widely known as a licensed Realtor® in Washington, D.C. and greater Maryland areas, most notably as a fixture with Exit Bennett Realty, located at 7701 Greenbelt Road, Suite 100, in Greenbelt, Maryland.

As usual, Person was rather forthright and straight to the point.

“Purchasing a home for most people is the biggest investment they’ll make in life,” Person told Making Headline News. “It’s imperative that people understand the financial power that can be gained from being a home owner.  There are far more advantages to owning opposed to renting.  It’s extremely important to ensure that people understand those advantages.  Then, when ready, help them find a house to call home.”

To his credit, Person’s reputation is such that his keen professionalism as a realtor has been nothing short of impressive since he embarked upon this ever-so-competitive real estate industry in March 2004.

An Upper Marlboro, Maryland native and an alumnus of North Carolina Central University, Person is widely known as a licensed Realtor® in Washington, D.C. and greater Maryland areas, most notably as a fixture with Exit Bennett Realty, located at 7701 Greenbelt Road, Suite 100, in Greenbelt, Maryland. 

Having adopted the trade name, “The House Person,” Person would be the first to admit that arguably his grandest feeling in his profession is when homebuyers reach the much-anticipated closing stage of what can otherwise be a stressful, yet sometimes discouraging process.
“I love handing a first time home buyer the keys to their house,” Person said. “I feel honored to play a small role in the acquisition of the largest financial investment most people make in their lifetime.  It’s definitely a life-changing moment for people, and I’m fortunate enough to have a front row seat.”

 

MAN OF COMPASSION — “Purchasing a home for most people is the biggest investment they’ll make in life,” Aaron Person told Making Headline News. “It’s imperative that people understand the financial power that can be gained from being a home owner.”

In addition to Person’s compassion for his clients, amongst his key objectives as a veteran realtor is ensuring that others along with homebuyers benefit in some shape or form.

In a nutshell, it’s safe to assume that when home seekers entrust Person to help them garner favorable results during their home-buying process, others affiliated with the upcoming transition will greatly reap the celebratory benefits in some aspect.

That’s “The House Person” for you.

“I used to say that I help people buy and sell houses, which is true on the surface,” Person explained. “What I really do is foster economic development on the city, county, state, country and global levels. Every time someone buys or sells a house, that transaction helps to employ everyone associated with any part of a house. That includes the manufacturer of all items in the house, to the people who transport these items, to the people who actually installed them in the house.”

As for those who have greatly fueled his desire to maximize his potential, thus live daily on the larger side of God as we are reminded according to Philippians 4:13, Person acknowledges that renowned life coaches Les Brown and Eric Thomas essentially top his list.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — Speaking of classrooms, aside from enabling homebuyers to fulfill their long-awaited dreams of making the lofty transition to their home, Person is now devising ways to better educate home seekers and potential homebuyers through informative, life-enhancing seminars.

“The inspiration for the public speaking side of things would be Les Brown and Eric Thomas,” Person said. “Both offer some great motivational content” As far as the teaching side of things, it’s because my 8 ½ year working in PG County classrooms.”

Speaking of classrooms, aside from enabling homebuyers to fulfill their long-awaited dreams of making the lofty transition to their home, Person is now devising ways to better educate home seekers and potential homebuyers through informative, life-enhancing seminars.

BEEN THERE, DONE THAT — To his credit, hosting seminars isn’t new to Person, who first began such a trend approximately two years after he made his professional real estate debut.

“I expect to continue providing great content during the home buying seminar I host,” Person said. “I also expect everyone who attends a Seminar to receive enough information that they feel comfortable enough with the home buying process that they’re ready to engage in that process.”

To his credit, hosting seminars isn’t new to Person, who first began such a trend approximately two years after he made his professional real estate debut.

“I’ve taught the working with a Realtor® portion of a Home Buying Seminar for various non-profit organizations in the DC/Metro area since 2006,” Person said. “I started hosting my own events in September 2015.”

GREAT COMPANY — As for those who have greatly fueled his desire to maximize his potential, thus live daily on the larger side of God as we are reminded according to Philippians 4:13, Person acknowledges that renowned life coaches Les Brown and Eric Thomas essentially top his list.

Looking ahead, don’t expect Person to slow down anytime soon, particularly as it relates to his well-publicized career as a flourishing realtor.

By and large, given the success he’s enjoyed in recent years, coupled with his wealth of knowledge in this industry, it’s safe to say that his best and brightest days undoubtedly are well ahead of him.

“In addition to the Home Buyer Seminar I host, there is a follow up session available that goes deeper into the financials of how to prequalify for a mortgage, curing credit & writing a winning offer,” said Person, sounding just as confident about his craft as ever before. “Upon departure, attendees are pre-approved or at least know what specifically they need to do in order to get pre-approved.  But to me, the best is that my team and I provide educators who utilize our services during the home buying process a discount of over $2,000 towards the cost to purchase.”

As usual, Person was rather forthright and straight to the point.

That’s “The House Person” for you.
