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.

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.

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.

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.”

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.”

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.

Houston college student Kristie Coleman following in mother’s huge footsteps as a young entrepreneur

DALLASKristie Coleman is originally from inner city Houston.

South Houston to be technical.

MOM’S KNOWS BEST — It is, in fact, because of the keen guidance of her mother that Kristie Coleman is steadily making favorable strides as owner and chief executive officer of KKC Film, a Houston-based film company that is widely known for a variety of productions, most notably movies, television shows, stage plays, music videos, skits, and inspirational vlogs and blogs, just to name a few.

A place where only the strong survive, for a 24-year-old, Coleman can greatly attest to what it is like to, you know, have figurative stones thrown in her direction.

“Every single stone that has been thrown at me I built from it, evolved from it and, most importantly, learned from it,” Coleman told Making Headline News this week. “Don’t give up when it gets hard. Don’t give up when your back is against the wall and, most importantly, build from the stones thrown at you.”

To her distinctly unique credit, it’s safe to assume that Coleman isn’t an ordinary youngster in her early 20s. Amongst the reasons is that her mindset is such that she has deemed it essential to walk in the massive footsteps of her mother, Thelma Sample, an accomplished Houston-area businesswoman.

“She is resilient,” Sample said of daughter’s continuous entrepreneurship progress. “Even as a little girl, she was a risk taker and a go-getter. She has tough energy.”

NO 1. FAN — Armed with lofty aspirations of earning an undergraduate degree in Business Administration, Coleman doesn’t shy away from the notion that she views her mother as the ideal model and mentor as it pertains to achieving entrepreneurship excellence. An accomplished author, Sample is owner and CEO of Success Tax Relief, a popular Houston financial-based institution that was established in January 2010.

Said Coleman: “My mother is my biggest inspiration along with my grandmother — RIP — Tyler Perry, Oprah, and Beyonce.”

Currently a waitress at a local restaurant and a 2011 graduate Houston’s La Porte High School, Coleman is accustomed to burning the midnight oil, considering she is advancing her education at Houston Community College.

EARLY BIRD — Having started taking theater classes in high school at the tender age of 14, Coleman acknowledged that what she  loves the most about her business is that it revolves around being creative, a rather intriguing trend that routinely affords her the golden opportunity to create what she describes as stories that revolve mostly around today’s issues.

“I watched my mother build her business from the ground up,” Coleman said. “I worked for multiple multi-level marketing companies and I worked side by side with CEO’s, millionaires, and small business owners.”

Interestingly, the knowledge Coleman acquired is priceless.

MAKING MAJOR MOVES — Currently a waitress at a local restaurant and a 2011 graduate Houston’s La Porte High School, Coleman is accustomed to burning the midnight oil, considering she is advancing her education at Houston Community College.

“I learned from their mistakes,” Coleman said. “I watched how they handled adversities and how they woke up each day and loved what business they were representing. That drove me to start my own business, because I knew learning from them, I could build something unique the world would enjoy and it would give me fulfillment.”

Now that she has established a product she’s convinced the world would ultimately come to enjoy, Coleman’s primary focus moving forward is to devise ways to enhance the vision about which God has introduced to her.

“My personal mission for doing this work is simple: Its God’s plan for my life,” Coleman said. “I was born to own companies that can use their influence to send positive messages, speak the Lord’s truth, work with talented artists, and lead people to success.”

RAISING THE BAR — To her distinctly unique credit, it’s safe to assume that Coleman isn’t an ordinary youngster in her early 20s. Amongst the reasons is that her mindset is such that she has deemed it essential to walk in the massive footsteps of her mother, Thelma Sample, an accomplished Houston-area businesswoman.

Talk about giving the world just what it needs for such a time as now.

“I can create a video that inspires others,” Coleman said. “I can create stage plays that’ll leave people in tears of joy, and I can use pain to write something up lifting.”

By and large, KKC Film caters to age groups ranging in ages 13 and older “for now,” Coleman said. Amongst the reasons is that she’s specifically aiming to reach young girls and boys, particularly young adults whom, as she puts it, “have already experienced life.”

“I want to lead the young kids down a positive path and inspire young adults to keep going down the positive path regardless of how hard life gets,” Coleman said.

So far, so good for a rising venture that has allowed Coleman to put her business-related skills on display in various establishments throughout Texas, especially in nearby Austin.

“I developed more of my talent in Austin and have met a tremendous amount of artists to work with,” said, Coleman, who will be on hand for the National Black Film Festival in Houston in the coming days, during which she will be presenting one of her scripts to artists who have won awards in film. “I believe as a young black woman, who’s starting a film company, I have the ability to create whatever I want.

PROFESSOR COLEMAN — By and large, KKC Film caters to age groups ranging in ages 13 and older “for now,” she said. Amongst the reasons is that Coleman is specifically aiming to reach young girls and boys, particularly young adults whom, as she puts it, “have already experienced life.”

“There so much negativity going on in the world, unknown truths, and lost souls,” Coleman added. “I want to use my gifts to spread love, send messages, and teach urban culture. I was blessed at a young age to discover what I want out of life and have a plan to back it up. I want to help others do the same.”

Just like her mother, late grandmother, Tyler Perry, Oprah, and Beyonce.

“I watched every single one of them growing up and I’ve seen stones thrown at them,” Coleman said. “I’ve seen them take leaps of faith and also evolve as people. My mother drives me to keep going no matter how hard life gets. My grandmother inspired me to stand strong and take no mess from anybody. Tyler Perry inspired me to start a film company. Oprah inspired me to reach my highest potential and Beyonce inspired me to use my voice to create beautiful art.”

Well said by this remarkably brilliant youngster from inner city Houston.

South Houston to be technical.

A place where only the strong survive.

Conroe, Texas visionary/businesswoman Shenequwa Sampay advancing the kingdom through her newly-established ministry

TEXAS SIZE KINGDOM IMPACT — A Conroe, Texas-based businesswoman (Conroe is roughly 40 miles north of Houston), Shenequwa Sampay is the Visionary for “Women After His Will Ministries,” a notable religious-based organization that is geared largely toward helping women to maximize their potential with God, their Helper, leading the way.

DALLAS — November 5, 2010 will forever serve as a defining moment, of sorts, for Shenequwa Sampay.

For starters, not only was it the day in which she had given birth to her daughter but, most importantly, it was a day during which she had a encountered a thought-provoking, life-enhancing exchange with her Creator.

“I heard God speak so clearly as I looked at my daughter…that she will not have to go through what I did as a child,” Sampay, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, recalled while explaining in great detail the events that had ultimately led to her selling out completely to Almighty God. “Now I knew He was calling me, but I had no idea exactly what that meant and to the magnitude at that time. That’s when my life completely changed.”

DEFYING ALL ODDS — Sampay doesn’t shy away from the notion that long before she established her Christian-based ministry, she had to press and navigate her way through arguably the most chaotic seasons of her young life. At the tender age of eight, for instance, she had what she described as her “identity stolen” amid the gruesome act of rape by her cousin. Consequently, such a stunning development had eventually given way to her being molested by other family members, one of whom was a female cousin.

Much to the delight of Sampay, the overall landscape of her life began to change miraculously, particularly over the next six years, considering God began to, as she described it, “prune and refine” her for His glory.

A 33-year-old native of Waverly, Texas, Sampay, under the unction of the Holy Spirit, officially accepted her divine call into ministry nearly a year ago. For what it’s worth, it’s safe to assume she hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down any time soon.

A Conroe, Texas-based businesswoman (Conroe is roughly 40 miles north of Houston), Sampay is the Visionary for “Women After His Will Ministries,” a notable religious-based organization that is geared largely toward helping women to maximize their potential with God, their Helper, leading the way.

“I planned my first conference,” said Sampay, explaining how she had grasped the vision for erecting her ministry. “God spoke to me last year that this year will be the year of discovery for His children, which is where ‘Discover You,’ the name of my conferences, came from…discovering your identity, meaning getting back to your true God ordained purpose and to be authentically you and taking off the mask.”

Speaking of taking off the mask, Sampay doesn’t shy away from the notion that long before she established her Christian-based ministry, she had to press and navigate her way through arguably the most chaotic seasons of her young life.

At the tender age of eight, for instance, she had what she described as her “identity stolen” amid the gruesome act of rape by her cousin. Consequently, such a stunning development had eventually given way to her being molested by other family members, one of whom was a female cousin.

THE PSALM 105:1 FACTOR — “My testimony is for my family and anyone who can relate to it,” Sampay said. “I had been comfortable serving and being in the help ministry, but it’s something different when you walk in what God has chosen just for you to do.”

For Sampay, such downtrodden occurrences prompted her to grow her, seeking others for a sense of validity to the life of a young girl who had no lofty idea that she was strategically being positioned to be set aside for God’s use.

“I grew up looking to the world to show and tell me who I am, which led to lots of heartaches and destruction in my life,” Sampay, a Sam Houston State University alumna, recalled. “I battled with self-hate and rejection and no one had a clue.”

Still, little did Sampay realize, God had other ideas, all of which would benefit her mightily, thus provide her with a new lease on life.

MAJOR IMPACT — Today, unlike never before, the lives of countless individuals across the country are steadily being impacted and transformed by Sampay’s seemingly unyielding transparency through her awe-inspiring testimonies.

“It was not until I cried out to God myself that my life began to turn around,” Sampay said. “My testimony changed my life, because God called me to be the vessel to save my family. It’s not about me but about my children and grandchildren, etc…to know that God would use me to break generational curses and to save my loved ones is an overwhelming joy.”

Today, unlike never before, the lives of countless individuals across the country are steadily being impacted and transformed by Sampay’s seemingly unyielding transparency through her awe-inspiring testimonies.

After have hosted her first conference approximately seven months after starting her ministry, Sampay will raise the curtain on her third conference at Houston’s Harvest Time Church October 13-14, an event that will accompany the theme: “Discover You Part 3: Dismantling Generational Curses.”

TEAM JESUS — A 33-year-old native of Waverly, Texas, Sampay, under the unction of the Holy Spirit, officially accepted her divine call into ministry nearly a year ago. For what it’s worth, it’s safe to assume she hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down any time soon.

According to Sampay — who comes from a family that is comprised of two deacons, one of whom is her father — this event will focus largely on the release of her program by helping women to discover their identity called, “Who Are You?”

“My testimony is for my family and anyone who can relate to it,” Sampay said. “I had been comfortable serving and being in the help ministry, but it’s something different when you walk in what God has chosen just for you to do.

“My family supports (my ministry) through prayer, which is more than I can ever ask,” Sampay added.

All of which practically sums up why November 5, 2010 will forever serve as a defining moment, of sorts, for this beloved woman of devout faith.
