Texas author Cheryl Polote-Williamson’s “Soulful Prayers” rapidly emerges as a global bestseller


Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. (James 5:16 KJV)


A PRAYING VISIONARY 

GOD’S LEADING LADY — A collaborative project that is comprised of 52 authors from around the country, Cheryl Polote-Williamson is responsible for having forwarded a “Soulful Prayers” published movement that, to her credit, has been as good advertised.

DALLAS — Given her immeasurable, longstanding resume, it would be rather befitting to refer to accomplished Flower Mound, Texas-based businesswoman Cheryl Polote-Williamson as a serial author, of sorts.

That’s because Polote-Williamson is responsible for having produced 13 books dating back to 2013, each of which has become a fixture throughout the Body of Christ in its own right.
Especially her latest awe-inspiring written work entitled, “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God,” a spiritually-enhancing book that is steadily having a massive kingdom impact — this amid a little less than three weeks removed from its much-anticipated release.

HERE’S THE DEAL — “‘Soulful Prayers’ aids in my purpose to reach out to millions of people for the kingdom,” Polote-Williamson said. “This book was put in my heart by God, and it is the product of people, who were driven by God to write these prayers.”

“I have received so much positive feedback,” Polote-Williamson told Making Headline News this week. “For instance, some have said the book gave them a sense of freedom from the darkness they are in. They feel like they are no longer hostages to their past. Others have said they incorporated the book in to their daily walk with God to help them pray.”

Interestingly, that Polote-Williamson’s “Soulful Prayers” was spearheaded in January of this year and took somewhere in the neighborhood of just four months to go to press is indicative of the overall work ethic of this Christian-based author, who recently announced that plans are effectively underway to compose “Soulful Prayers 2.”

Polote-Williamson’S “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God,” a spiritually-enhancing book that is steadily have a massive kingdom impact — this amid a little less than three weeks removed from its much-anticipated release.

“I want people to understand that prayer is an intentional conversation with God, and it does not have to be perfect or planned just from the heart,” said Polote-Williamson, explaining the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience through her latest book. “I chose to produce the book, because I recognize the importance of having intentional communication with God. In addition, everyone struggles with how to come to God on particular topics, and I wanted this book to serve as a guide for leading those open prayers.”


Mission accomplished, thanks in large part to the diligent, steadfast act of obedience by this devout woman of faith, whose much-anticipated and latest project has not only created a continuous national buzz, but has already emerged as an Amazon Bestseller in the process.

Given her immeasurable, longstanding resume, it would be rather befitting to refer to accomplished Texas businesswoman Cheryl Polote-Williamson as a serial author, of sorts. That’s because Polote-Williamson is responsible for having produced 13 books dating back to 2013, each of which has become a fixture throughout the Body of Christ in its own right.

But wait.

Although she’s orchestrated a dozen-plus books to date, Polote-Williamson is nowhere near done retiring the pad and pen.

Nope, not by a long shot.

“I plan to start on Soulful Prayers 2 and Soul Talk 3,” Polote-Williamson said. “In addition to books, I have now begun to work in film. For instance, I am the executive producer in the short film, ‘Illegal Rose,’ which has been submitted for review to several film festivals. Outside of ‘Illegal Rose,’ I have started working on my own personal film project, (Saving Clarissa) which is set to release in 2020.”

Interestingly, that Polote-Williamson’s “Soulful Prayers” was spearheaded in January of this year and took somewhere in the neighborhood of just four months to go to press is indicative of the overall work ethic of this Christian-based author, who recently announced that plans are effectively underway to compose “Soulful Prayers 2.”

Much to her delight, speaking engagements and public appearances have become a customary trend for Polote-Williamson, the CEO of Cheryl Polote Williamson LLC, who’s widely regarded as an award-winning entrepreneur, bestselling author, speaker, philanthropist, as well as a notable transformational leader, one who has aided more than 145 individuals accomplished their long-awaited dreams of becoming bestselling authors.

In their own right.

“‘Soulful Prayers’ aids in my purpose to reach out to millions of people for the kingdom,” Polote-Williamson said. “This book was put in my heart by God, and it is the product of people, who were driven by God to write these prayers.”

All the while joining forces to advance the kingdom as a result.

Dallas/Fort Worth author Sandi D. Johnson’s ‘Collateral Beauty’ is a thing of beauty


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


GODLY THING OF BEAUTY 

GOD’S PLAN — Sandi D. Johnson’s desire to compose the newly-produced entitled “My Story, My Journey: Collateral Beauty” has come full circle. It is a collaborative written work she assembled with other authors.

LEWISVILLE, Texas — For Sandi D. Johnson, June 5, 2018 essentially changed the overall landscape of her life.

“Last year on June 5, I did a Facebook Live (segment) on collateral beauty,” Johnson told Making Headline News this week. “I was inspired by the movie and how Will Smith’s character became paralyzed by grief and begin to seek out answers. The results were that in life’s toughest, most heart-wrenching situations, there are some lessons and blessings. So, the term collateral beauty has been in my spirit ever since.”
All things considered, such an awe-inspiring sequence is what fueled Johnson’s desire to compose the newly-produced entitled, “My Story, My Journey: Collateral Beauty,” a collaborative written work she assembled with other authors.

The book’s official launch will take place on August 3 at Sway’s Room in nearby DeSoto, Texas, during which Johnson will be the keynote speaker.

Also, Johnson announced that a retreat is planned for some time next year and will called, “My Story, My journey: Collateral Beauty Retreat,” during which she will be a presenter.

As Johnson explained, her company EnVision Your Life, L.L.C., also has played an integral part of her quest to write a book that figures to become a fixture during what many have dubbed “perilous times.”

As far as demonstrating faith to compose her newly-assembled written document, Johnson acknowledged that it was, by all accounts, a vision to which God introduced her early this year through “Grace to Recover,” a book she co-authored with Shirley LaTour.

“My company has a proven multi-step process that produces vision boards, which produces results and are in action,” Johnson explained.  “As a result of the EnVision Board Experience, the individual will leave with a visual representation of their vision, futurist mindset, and three concrete goals that will be in motion with the help of a dream keeper relationship. The experiences are done virtually or in person. So on my vision board, the words ‘Put it in writing’ as a personal goal was to author a book.  I cannot motivate others to reach goals and not move on my own.”

To her credit, Johnson has certainly moved mightily, thus exercised her faith in ways unimaginable, particularly with regards to assembling “My Story, My Journey: Collateral Beauty.”

Johnson announced that a retreat is planned for some time next year and will called, “My Story, My journey: Collateral Beauty Retreat,” during which she will be a presenter.

“After experiencing the death of my stepfather, mother, and grandfather in a period of like 16 months, I was able to find some beauty in that situation,” said Johnson, when asked what was the single, most underlying reason she chose to produce her new book. “The heartbreak and grief were purposed to give me the ability to reframe any situation. I want others to know that not only can they survive those hard places, but it is part of their purpose path.”

As far as demonstrating faith to compose her newly-assembled written document, Johnson acknowledged that it was, by all accounts, a vision to which God introduced her early this year through “Grace to Recover,” a book she co-authored with Shirley LaTour.


“This goal was in no way, shape, or form one that was easy to obtain,” Johnson recalled. “You see, I struggled with spelling since childhood, which feeds into the irrational thought pattern that I could not write. As a child, Thursday nights at my house growing up was a struggle due to the Friday spelling test. We would sing, rap, write, and dance to my spelling words only for me to barely pass the test. In college, I would procrastinate when assigned any paper out of this belief that I could not write.”


But God Whom, much to Johnson’s delight, still had a divine purpose for her life, most notably through the competitive world of authorship.

That, of course, meant she had to become accustomed to spelling and writing — and do it efficiently.

“A few years ago, I expressed to my author friend (MeLisa Calhoun Collins) that I could not write,” Johnson said. “I would send her something I had written for her to read. It was at that point, she informed me I would never say that statement again. She has been my editor and can take my sometimes not-so-well-written thought and fix it to make sense. She is my writing dream keeper.”

“This fear almost stopped this project,” said Johnson, who’s currently working on two more anthologies. “As a vision coach, I tell my clients just to leap and that is what I did with a blindfold on. And 14 other women joined me on this journey and shared their stories of finding meaning in either the death of a loved one or divorce. Some were hit with both at the same time.”

And today unlike never before, Johnson has emerged as purpose driven and accomplished author, who’s yet walking fervently in her purpose — with God, her Helper, leading the way.

Talk about a massive thing of beauty.

“This fear almost stopped this project,” said Johnson, who’s currently working on two more anthologies. “As a vision coach, I tell my clients just to leap and that is what I did with a blindfold on. And 14 other women joined me on this journey and shared their stories of finding meaning in either the death of a loved one or divorce. Some were hit with both at the same time.”

For Johnson, it all goes back to June 5 of last year.

As Johnson explained, her company EnVision Your Life, L.L.C., also has played an integral part of her quest to write a book that figures to become a fixture during what many have dubbed “perilous times.”

“This year on June 5 — exactly one year after the Facebook Live on my weekly broadcast — ‘Living Life On Purpose,’ — was launched,” said Johnson, alluding to yet another published project. “This was not planned, and it was only realized as I casually strolled my memories and the connection was made. It was as if God was blowing His daughter a kiss and putting His seal of approval on this project.

“When you leap without knowing the full plan, it is a faith walk, and all credit has to be given to our Father up above,” Johnson continued. “If He gave you the project, He will supplies the tools to complete it.”

Not to mention, change the overall landscape of your life in the process.

Texas author Yvette D. McGill’s God-assigned vision comes full circle courtesy of her featured book


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


THE GREAT EXCHANGE 

WOMAN WITH A VISION — Texas author Yvette D. McGill was quick to assume her latest kingdom assignment when she diligently put it on display until her God-mandated vision had come full circle, courtesy of an awe-inspiring book entitled, “theEXCHANGE,”  her featured written work that is approximately three months removed from its much-anticipated release.

Yvette D. McGill did just what she was supposed to do with the vision once God strategically introduced her to it.

She ran with it.
To her credit, she didn’t just run with it.
Rather, she picked it back up and diligently put it on display until her God-mandated vision had come full circle, courtesy of an awe-inspiring book entitled, “theEXCHANGE,”  her featured written work that is approximately three months removed from its much-anticipated release.
“God gave me the vision to write the book on March 22, 2016,” McGill, a  La Marque, Texas native, told Making Headline News this week. “I was sitting in a workshop with two famous authors, learning how to write a book and literally the room went black as if it was just me and God in the room.”

From a spiritual perspective, it essentially was a room that included McGill and her Creator.

How else to explain why her life-changing vision as an author has come to fruition?

“It was then He said, ‘You will write a book. You will name it #theEXCHANGE,’” McGill recalled.

In playing off of words, there is a valid reason behind such an intriguing, spiritually-gut checking exchange that surfaced between God and McGill, this author explained.

“(He said), ‘The reason why (I assigned you to write this book) is because when you were 25 years old, I told you to give your mom forgiveness for the difficult childhood you had. (He said to me), ‘When your daughter was 25, you had to ask her for forgiveness for lying to her about who her dad really was,’” McGill recalled. “He went on to say, ‘If you had not given her forgiveness when I told you, I would not have been able to allow your daughter to forgive you now.’”

As McGill explained, it was just the encounter she needed to witness in order to appropriately carry out her God-mandated vision as a new author.

A book she finished composing in January of this year — “I finished in January 2019, but had hoped to release it on Jan 2, 2019, my 51st birthday,” she said — McGill’s #theEXCHANGE was officially released two months later.

Much to her delight, it has been short of impressive ever since.

“The single most underlying reason I wrote this book is so that absolutely nobody else would be able to tell my truth,” McGill said a project she needed approximately two months to assemble. “I wanted it in writing why I did what I did.”

There are, in fact, other books in which McGill is involved mightily.

Prior to #theEXCHANGE, which is her second written work, McGill composed “Boss’d Up On Purpose,” a collaborative August 2018-released project she wrote with 12 other writers.

Then there is “It’s Not That Easy,” McGill’s third book that’s centered largely on her steadfastly reminding er audience to “stop telling me to get over it!”

This March 2019-released book, in fact, is comprised of 10 other authors, many of whom are mental illness survivors.


THE LUKE 18:1 FACTOR 

McGill also has played a major hand in the soon-to-be-released book entitled, “Soulful Prayers,” a coed collaboration project that is comprised of 51 writers, all of whom have grasped a thorough understanding of the power of prayer.

McGill also has played a major hand in the soon-to-be-released book entitled, “Soulful Prayers,” a coed collaboration project that is comprised of 51 writers, all of whom have grasped a thorough understanding of the power of prayer.

As for her latest book, McGill acknowledged there is, by all accounts, a divine message she aspires to get across to her readers.

“The divine message I’m sending through this book is no matter how life started out for you, you have to power to make the necessary changes to get it right,” said McGill, adding that the feedback has been overwhelmingly amazing. “And right should consist of who did God send you here to be…nothing more or less should matter above His plan.

“I am truly an example of the saying, ‘I’m just a nobody, trying to tell somebody that Jesus saves.’”

ALL IN GOD’S PLAN — In playing off of words, there is a valid reason behind such an intriguing, spiritually-gut checking exchange that surfaced between God and McGill, this author explained.

As McGill can boldly profess today unlike never before, had it not been for the Lord Who was on her side, there’s no telling where she’d be.

“He could have easily allowed me to die in my sins,” said McGill, “but He thought so much of me, He used my mess for a message and allowed me to exchange my truth for others’ transformation.”

IN HER OWN WORDS — “The divine message I’m sending through this book is no matter how life started out for you, you have to power to make the necessary changes to get it right,” said McGill, adding that the feedback has been overwhelmingly amazing. “And right should consist of who did God send you here to be…nothing more or less should matter above His plan.

Talk about running with a monumental vision.

And not just running with it.

But rather picking it back up and diligently put it on display until her God-mandated vision had come full circle, courtesy of an awe-inspiring book.

Yep. That’s just like God.

Dallas/Fort Worth Pastor Edward Taylor continuing Deliverance Chapel COGIC’s longstanding mission as its beloved leader


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)


CARRYING THE MANTLE 

DIFFERENT LEADER, SAME MISSION — A notable faith-based resume that is comprised of Edward Taylor being widely dubbed a well-respected preacher, teacher, evangelist, worshipper, father, and counselor, he has appropriately assumed his rightful place as the face of the historic Deliverance Chapel Church of God In Christ, located at 1438 Hortense Avenue.

DALLAS — For the record, it is a testimony that Edward Taylor deems it a foregone conclusion to share with the masses.

Every single chance he gets.

Just recently, Taylor found himself disclosing it once again, reliving the awe-inspiring notion that had it not been for the Lord on his side then, chances are, he wouldn’t merely know where he’d be.

Then again, he does have an idea, to put it rather bluntly.
“Had God not changed my life when He did, I would probably be dead or in jail,” Edwards, during an exclusive interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the memorable, life-altering developments that led to his rise as an accomplished man of the cloth. “Also, I know if He changed my life, he can do it for someone else. So I take reaching the lost — evangelism — really serious.”
To grasp a thorough understanding of why Taylor would be considered a proverbial nuts and bolts — or a going by the book — type of minister, look no further than not just how God has provided for him a way of escape time and again.
Oh…and while you’re at it, look no further than how he’s diligently going about serving the people of God.
A notable faith-based resume that is comprised of Taylor being widely dubbed a well-respected preacher, teacher, evangelist, worshipper, father, and counselor, he has appropriately assumed his rightful place as the face of the historic Deliverance Chapel Church of God In Christ, located at 1438 Hortense Avenue.
Installed as an ordained elder approximately two years later by the late Bishop J. Neaul Haynes, the former Prelate of the Texas Northeast First Jurisdictional, Taylor consequently served closely under late Superintendent Kelley Jr., a stint that would ultimately give way to his official installation as Deliverance Chapel’s Pastor months after Kelley Jr.’s untimely demise, despite having founded Dallas’ El Shaddai Temple Church of God In Christ in August 2011.

A tradition-rich institution that’s housed in the historic Oak Cliff community of Dallas, Deliverance Chapel has embraced wholeheartedly the keen leadership of Taylor, 53, since the longtime minister was installed as its third Senior Pastor in 2017.

Having succeeded the late Superintendent Elijah Kelley Jr., who passed away on November 19, 2016 at the age of 54, Taylor has made immeasurable strides since assuming the Senior Pastoral duties and, much to his delight, his congregation has unquestionably and gracefully received him in the process.

Deliverance Chapel was founded in 1981 by the late Superintendent Elijah Kelley, Sr. and his wife, Elect Lady Geneva Kelley.

“Although (I was) raised in a single parent home, my mother always taught me to work hard and never let anyone tell me what I can’t do or attain,” said Taylor, recalling the No. 1 key value he was taught as a child.

SERVING WITH EXCELLENCE — To grasp a thorough understanding of why Taylor would be considered a proverbial nuts and bolts — or a going by the book — type of minister, look no further than not just how God has provided him a way of escape time and again, but look no further than how he has gone about serving the people of God.

A native of Jackson, Mississippi, Taylor and his family relocated from the Magnolia to the Lone Star State in 2004, approximately nine years after he had effectively accepted his calling to preach the gospel.

Interestingly, even before God had strategically set Taylor aside for His use, this young preacher endured a tumultuous season in the wilderness, one that was mired by his constant drug addiction.

All things considered, coupled with divine purpose for which he was created, even a somewhat lengthy connection to drugs wasn’t enough to steer Taylor to a premature death, mind you.


LEAST WE FORGET 

REMEMBERING HIS PREDICESSORS  — Having succeeded the late Superintendent Elijah Kelley Jr., who passed away on November 19, 2016 at the age of 54, Taylor has made immeasurable strides since assuming Senior Pastor duties and, much to his delight, his congregation has unquestionably and gracefully received him in the process.

If nothing else, it seemed that such a downtrodden and gloomy season of his life only impressed upon the heart of his Creator to come after him the more. So much so that this young, gifted preacher from the “SIP” (a historic abbreviation for Mississippi) had no choice but to do away with his potentially dead-end addiction, thus pick up his cross and obey God’s specific commands that included, among other things, leading His people for such a time as now.

Because at the end of the real day, Taylor was taught, more than anything, that only what you do for Christ will last.

AFTER GOD’S OWN HEART

Armed with well over three decades of experience in the ministry, Taylor is especially appreciative of the valiant and unyielding support of Elect Lady Tangela Taylor, his wife of 15 years, who serves alongside him in ministry.

Here he is today, functioning mightily in his element as the chief executive officer of one of the most longstanding ministries in Dallas/Fort Worth which, to his credit, is a far cry from those days back home in Mississippi, where the adversary sensed he had Taylor right where he wanted him.

But God…

SERVANT’S HEART — For what it’s worth, this national COGIC Adjutant has been serving ever since — serving with a pure and contrite heart, serving immense adherence and trustworthiness, serving according to God’s purpose.

“(My ) family is very supportive, especially my mother and adult children,” said Taylor, explaining his transition to Senior Pastor nearly two years ago.

Armed with well over three decades of experience in the ministry, Taylor is especially appreciative of the valiant and unyielding support of Elect Lady Tangela Taylor, his wife of 15 years, who serves alongside him in ministry.


 

“The Lord has blessed us to work together to accomplish great things in the ministry,” Taylor said of his companion’s unparalleled support. “Our greatest desire is to take the church to another level and build the people and let God grow the church. Deliverance Chapel is a united body, and is definitely a good church to go to heaven from.”

Credit Taylor’s predecessor as arguably the biggest reason why.

Taylor joined Deliverance Chapel in 2004 after serving a brief tenure under Pastor Joe Starks of Shady Gove Church of God In Christ in nearby Irving, Texas.

RIGHT WHERE GOD WANTS HIM — Here is Taylor today, functioning mightily in his element as the chief executive officer of one of the most longstanding ministries in Dallas/Fort Worth which, to his credit, is a far cry from the days back home in Mississippi, where the adversary sensed that he had Taylor right where he wanted him. But God…

Installed as an ordained elder approximately two years later by the late Bishop J. Neaul Haynes, the former Prelate of the Texas Northeast First Jurisdictional, Taylor consequently served closely under Superintendent Kelley Jr.

Such a stint would ultimately give way to Taylor’s official installation as Deliverance Chapel’s Pastor months after Kelley Jr.’s untimely demise, despite having founded Dallas’ El Shaddai Temple Church of God In Christ in August 2011.

Deliverance Chapel was founded in 1981 by the late Superintendent Elijah Kelley, Sr. and his wife, Elect Lady Geneva Kelley.

Prior to assuming his Pastoral assignment in Texas, Taylor served at Amazing Institutional Church of God in Christ in Jackson, Mississippi, under the leadership of Superintendent Marcus Butler.

Currently, Taylor serves as Evangelist President to Bishop Nathaniel De’Anthony Wells, the Prelate of Texas Northeast Fourth Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction.

Asked when he sensed that God was strategically him for ministry, Taylor said without hesitation: “When I accepted my calling at age 30.”

A PROVEN LEADER — A tradition-rich institution that’s housed in the historic Oak Cliff community of Dallas, Deliverance Chapel has embraced wholeheartedly the keen leadership of Taylor, 53, since the longtime minister was installed as its third Senior Pastor in 2017.

For what it’s worth, though, this national COGIC Adjutant has been serving conscientiously ever since — serving with a pure and contrite heart, serving with immense adherence and trustworthiness, serving according to God’s purpose.

Most of all, he’s serving fervently from God’s perspective.

Which, because of the divine calling on his life, is a far cry from those days back home in Mississippi, where the adversary sensed he had him right where he wanted him.

But God…

San Antonio’s Aunjane ”AJ” Johnson defying odds, making major moves as young entrepreneur


I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (Philippians 4:13 KJV)


GOD’S FAITH STEPPER 

ALA-MO SUCCESS — A native of San Antonio, Aunjane ”AJ” Johnson is a full-time entrepreneur as the owner and CEO of Destination Prosperity Multiservice Company, LLC, which specializes in offering business startup coaching, particularly through what Johnson describes as customized kits and power hours based specifically on their growth and industry, she told Making Headline News this week.

DALLAS — Although it might be widely considered rather clichéish, Aunjane ”AJ” Johnson would be the first to tell to that age ain’t nothing but a number.

Consider, for instance, the fact that Johnson is just 24 years of age.

Still, for someone who’s roughly five months away from witnessing her 25th birthday, Johnson is steadily devising ways to function mightily in her element, most notably as a young entrepreneur.

A native of San Antonio, Johnson is a full-time entrepreneur as the owner and CEO of Destination Prosperity Multiservice Company, LLC, which specializes in offering business startup coaching, particularly through what Johnson describes as customized kits and power hours based specifically on their growth and industry, she told Making Headline News this week.

WHAT ABOUT “AJ’s BUSINESS? https://www.destinationprosperityllc.net/

COVERED BY ANGELS — All things considered, Johnson’s immeasurable success as a young businesswoman has emerged amid her share of hardships, a trend that, to her credit, has contributed mightily to her quest to go after all her critics and naysayers sensed she couldn’t have. After experiencing what she describes as “a very traumatic three years of my life,” Johnson recalls like yesterday when, truth be told, she was practically homeless, living out of a laundry basket or, as she vividly explains, a section of closet space and with two drawers, to be more technical.

In addition, Johnson’s venture customarily offers financial literacy coaching and education services as a strategic way to greatly aid individuals, especially those who often struggle with the management of their personal finances through monthly budgeting, savings plans, and workshops along with affordable credit consulting.

A business venture that went full throttle some two-and-a-half years ago, Johnson is thoroughly convinced that Destination Prosperity Multiservice Company, LLC’s best and brightest days are well ahead of it.


“I like educating, motivating, and assisting entrepreneurs and the community to learn how to build something of their own, manage their finances, and build their credit ethically and legally,” said Johnson, who rising business accommodates persons ranging in ages 13-and-up or, as she specifically acknowledges, “middle school through college students and adults up to age 40.”


All things considered, Johnson’s immeasurable success as a young businesswoman has emerged amid her share of hardships, a trend that, to her credit, has contributed mightily to her quest to go after all her critics and naysayers sensed she couldn’t have.

After experiencing what she describes as “a very traumatic three years of my life,” Johnson recalls like yesterday when, truth be told, she was practically homeless, living out of a laundry basket or, as she vividly explains, a section of closet space and with two drawers, to be more technical.

That, she said, is when reality has finally set in, considering even as a youngster, she knew full well that she was fearfully and wonderfully made in God, she knew full well that there’s got to be more to life than what was placed in front of her.

But God…

“I made a decision that I would create a better life for (my child),” Johnson said. “I decided we would be on housing for a bit until I finished college, but during that time, I will start planning my company and securing our future by building a business so I can spend time with my baby girl after being raised as a single mother, who had dreams but worked constantly.”

DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS — For someone who’s a roughly five months from witnessing her 25th birthday, Johnson is steadily devising ways to function mightily in her element, most notably as a young entrepreneur.

To her credit, coupled with what seemed to be a renewed sense of unshakable faith, Johnson stayed the course, stayed true to herself and, most importantly, trusted the process until she reaped the favorable results she so desperate sought.

In that order.

After graduating from Douglas  San Antonio’s Macarthur High School at 17 years of age, Johnson enrolled in the Cosmetology Program at Milan Institute, then finished a couple years later at Ogle School Of Hair, Skin and Nails.

Interestingly, she’s currently studying Accounting at Colorado Technical University and has just three sessions left to complete her undergraduate degree requirements.


WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS…

As if these achievements aren’t enough to cap off a dramatic comeback story, Johnson announced that she’s scheduled to make a few podcast appearances in the foreseeable future and will be teaching a virtual class teaching April 2 entitled, “How to Build An Agency.”

As for her rising company, Johnson said, “My personal mission is to build and educate the community. I want people to stop sitting on their dreams and go for it.”

Because, as she puts it forthright, life is precious, yet fragile, meaning we’ve only got one shot at this thing.

So it’s either hit or miss.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — After graduating from Douglas  San Antonio’s Macarthur High School at 17 years of age, Johnson enrolled in the Cosmetology Program at Milan Institute, then finished a couple years later at Ogle School Of Hair, Skin and Nails. Interestingly, she’s currently studying Accounting at Colorado Technical University and has just three sessions left to complete her undergraduate degree requirements.

“We only get one life,” said Johnson, “and I want anyone I’m blessed to reach to live their best life despite life’s challenges.”

Well said by this young, flourishing businesswoman whom, even at 24 years of age, knows a thing or two about defying some of life’s greatest challenges.

Houston businesswoman Tina McBride Reed goes from fast food worker to CEO of credible mobile care and companion service


DISPLAYING AGAPE LOVE

GOD’S UNCHANGING HAND — A native of Spring, Texas, Tina McBride Reed, 40, is the owner and chief executive officer of Tina Reed’s Caring Hands LLC, a Houston-area mobile care and companion service whose primary emphasis is centered mostly on helping and caring for others, most notably senior citizens, whom are often neglected, Reed told Making Headline News this week.

DALLAS — Tina McBride Reed’s reputation is such that she routinely exemplifies having a heart for people, especially for elderly individuals.

So, much in fact, that Reed has gone to great lengths to provide a resourceful, credible service to elderly people throughout the greater Houston metropolitan and surrounding areas.

A native of Spring, Texas, Reed, 40, is the owner and chief executive officer of Tina Reed’s Caring Hands LLC, a Houston-area mobile care and companion service whose primary emphasis is centered mostly on helping and caring for others, most notably senior citizens, whom are often neglected, Reed told Making Headline News this week.


CONNECT WITH TINA’S BUSINESS VENTURE: http://msreed2015.com/

“We are a private mobile care and companion service that offers to anyone who is in need, but caters especially to the senior citizens,” Reed said. “I feel they are often neglected in some ways and often forgotten at times.”

Having assembled a staff that is comprised of her mother, two sisters, a niece, as well as a host of friends, family members, and caregivers, Reed established her mobile care venture a little more than a year ago — January 19, 2018 to be technical — as a strategic way to bridge the gap between that about which she’s passionate and the love for what she’s become destined to do.

ALL OF GOD’S PEOPLE MATTER — Reed’s reputation is such that she routinely exemplifies having a heart for people, especially for elderly individuals.

Currently a resident of Humble, Texas, Reed is the Activities Director and caregiver for a senior living community in nearby Woodlands.

“I’ve worked in the healthcare field and I’ve seen some things that I wish I could unsee,” Reed said. “I’ve seen the type of care that has been provided, and it wasn’t pleasing to me, so I wanted to make a difference.”

A little more than a year removed since the startup of Tina Reed’s Caring Hands LLC, this thriving, progressive businesswoman has been nothing short of impressive.

Credit her keen passion, coupled with her divine calling, as the reasons why.


“I wanted to be different and create my own team and expectations of how my vision of how care should be provided. I stand firm on our motto which is, ‘Treating your loved ones as our own.’ This simply means, however, you would treat (people like) your own mother, father, or loved one whether someone is there, overseeing you or not. You would want someone to provide that same type of love care, patience, and companionship for your loved ones, so I wanted to venture out on my own with my family to share our love and passion for what we do.” — Texas Entrepreneur Tina McBride Reed


To her credit, it seems that Reed and her team are reaping favorable results of their tireless efforts and valiant contributions through a distinctly unique mobile care venture that has become a fixture in the community.

“Thus far, we have touched a lot of lives, a lot of hearts, and a lot of families and their loved ones,” Reed said of the sustained success of her business. “My staff and I are both professional and caring, when it comes to your loved ones. We take great pride in providing the best, quality care, love, and support that are required in the adult healthcare field.”

Armed with a nearly a decade and a half of experience in the adult healthcare sector, Reed said what she loves the most about her line of work is the lasting relationships she customarily forms amongst those with whom she crosses paths.

PUTTING IN THE WORK — Currently a resident of Humble, Texas, Reed is the Activities Director and caregiver for a senior living community in nearby Woodlands.

“The thing I like the most about my business is meeting new people, creating special bonds, bonds that are like friendships, and some are like family,” said Reed, whose venture mostly accommodates senior citizens of any age, as well as special education or adult children. “I love to hear the stories that they share. I love transitioning with them and, most of all, I like providing them with quality care, companionship, passion and love for them, something I feel that every person should feel or provide for whomever. I get great joy in helping others.”

Her “great joy,” she said, was spearheaded by her Creator.

“I would definitely have to say that it was put on my heart by God,” said Reed, when asked Who were amongst those who inspired her to enter entrepreneurship. “I started off in fast food, working at Jack In The Box for five years before I said to myself, ‘This is not what I want to do for the rest of my life.’”

Interestingly, that Reed — behind the valiant support of Shannon Reed, her husband of three years — was determined to see from beyond her tenure at a local fast food chain and persevere diligently toward her purpose and calling has benefited her mightily, given the immeasurable strides she’s made a newcomer to the world of entrepreneurship.

“I was introduced to the healthcare field by my sister, who is also a caregiver for my company,” Reed explained. “She introduced me to providing care for the seniors.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Never mind that Reed had made her debut in the industry virtually clueless about what to do.


A SERVANT’S HEART 

IMPACTING LIVES — Armed with a nearly a decade and a half of experience in the adult healthcare sector, Reed said what she loves the most about her line of work is the last relationships she customarily forms amongst those with whom she crosses paths.

“I honestly had no experience in the healthcare field prior to this besides taking care of my own parents,” said Reed, “but when I saw the responses from the care that I provided, that was a sign from God to me that this is what I needed to do.”

Once she made God the Focal Point of her what undoubtedly has become her newfound passion, she in turn began to reap her share of success.

Sustained success, that is.

“Honestly, I see a lot of people that want to do certain things but are afraid to step out on faith and do it,” Reed said. “There are a lot of people that just don’t want to take that extra initiative to do something that they love. I was in the same boat, but I stepped out on faith and said, ‘I’m going to do this.’”

For Reed, it was, by all accounts, a massive leap of faith, the kind that has ultimately connected her with the purpose for which she was created.

GOD’S PLAN — Interestingly, that Reed was determined to see from beyond her tenure at a local fast food chain and persevere diligently toward her purpose and calling has benefited her mightily, given the immeasurable strides she’s made a newcomer to the world of entrepreneurship.

“(I said) ‘If I make it great, wonderful. I’ve succeeded and I will have a success story. But if I fail, I still feel like I tried, I attempted, and I stepped out on faith and did not give up on at least trying so either way I still win,’” Reed recalled. “So I just want to show others that anything that you set your mind to that you can do if you put in the work for it.

“Nothing is ever given to you. You have to work for it. I love encouraging and inspiring and uplifting anyone in life who is trying to make it. That is me.”

Indeed it is.

What a difference one year has made.

Houston entrepreneur Melody Woods looking forward to 2019 with forthcoming wedding, documentary, new book


Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud; It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs; Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth; It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveresLove never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away; For we know in part and we prophesy in part; but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears; When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me; For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known; And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:4-13 NIV)


 

DALLAS — Melody Woods has endured enough turmoil and hardships, has encountered enough heartbreaks and letdowns, has pressed and navigated her way through enough unfavorable situations and circumstances to be able to identify when God is strategically positioning and elevating her for promotion.

Consider, for instance, how God had allowed Woods’ path to cross with Jesse James Willis III, her beloved fiancé, with whom she will exchange nuptials in the coming months.

Awwwww…


HER KING, HIS QUEEN

BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER — During an exclusive interview with Making Headline News, Woods, a longtime Houston-area entrepreneur who is the founder and CEO of MWG Tax And Financial Service Inc., announced the forthcoming debut of her documentary and release of her book, both of which are entitled, “The Surviving Butterflies.” Woods book is projected to hit the market on November 24, 2019. Pictured with Woods is Jesse James Willis III, her beloved fiancé, with whom she will exchange nuptials in the coming months.

“Where do I begin? The word, ‘joy,’ I never thought I would ever experience as far as a relationship,” Woods, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, explained when asked to describe the joy her soul mate has brought to her life.

Despite all through which she gone and conquered, Woods was found guilty of clinging to unwavering faith, coupled with a solid prayer life.

That is when God miraculously showed up on her behalf, thus allowing the right man to find her, a man whom she ironically has known for a little more than two decades.

“I have prayed to have a man that is so genuinely loving, faithful, patient, understanding, compassionate…someone as silly as me and, who most of all, keeps God first in his life,” Woods, displaying her customary big smile while offering her assessment of her Willis. “He is my best friend and I thank God for this man every day. Most people think we just meet. No, we’ve been knowing each other for over 20 years, which will be more detailed in my upcoming book.”

Said Willis, echoing some rather similar excitement for his significant other: “(Melody) has brought me overwhelming love, warm smiles, multiplied with happiness, encouraging words and thoughts are what she brought into my life. Having a plethora of things in common increase wonderful emotions. Our togetherness with those facts makes us able to overcome any obstacle.”

THE PROVERBS 18:22 AFFECT — Despite all through which she gone and conquered, Woods was found guilty of clinging to unwavering faith, coupled with a solid prayer life. That is when God miraculously showed up on her behalf, thus allowing the right man to find her, a man whom she ironically has known for a little more than two decades.

During an exclusive interview with MHN, Woods, a longtime Houston-area entrepreneur who is the founder and CEO of MWG Tax And Financial Service Inc., announced the forthcoming release of her book entitled, “The Surviving Butterflies,” which is projected to hit the market on November 24, 2019.

Interestingly, Woods’ book will be viable extension of her upcoming documentary that is also entitled, “The Surviving Butterflies,” a narrative that will depict an assortment of Woods’ personal and tumultuous experiences or, as she specifically acknowledged, “the obstacles I have overcome,” not to mention “the  removing a mask that I wore for 16 years.”

Much to the delight of this Texas couple, Willis suggested that Woods move forward with a 90-minute documentary she hopes attracts the attention of some of Hollywood’s big name directors and producers.

Woods said she hopes that someone such as renowned actor, playwright, filmmaker, and comedian Tyler Perry gets word of her forthcoming documentary.

“What if someone like Tyler Perry hears about this documentary? I would be so honored on so many levels. I would love for him to back my movie. I’m speaking it to existence.” — Melody Woods


Much like she spoke into existence her harvest season, this after having survived arguably the greatest tragedies of her life.

Just last summer, Woods’ heart was broken considerably when a close member of her family had suddenly passed away.

JESSE’S G.O.A.T — Still, when the dust settled, when the adversary sensed that he had this prized Texas businesswoman down for the count and rendered unto her a potential death sentence, here comes God, His usual reliable Self, showing on her behalf, thus cross-examining the enemy’s plots and schemes as only He could.

As if that wasn’t enough to rattle and shake up her family, Woods surprisingly suffered what doctors had described as a major stroke a little more than a month later, a stunning development that damaged the right side of her brain.

“God was definitely in the midst of it all, because one thing I know, I’m a fighter and all I can think about is everything I wanted to do and say if,” Woods, during a December 2017 interview with Making Headline News, said, assessing how she overcame what undoubtedly was a disastrous, emotionally-driven time for her.

Still, when the dust settled, when the adversary sensed that he had this prized Texas businesswoman down for the count and rendered unto her a potential death sentence, here comes God, His usual reliable Self, showing on her behalf, thus cross-examining the enemy’s plots and schemes as only He could.

Then comes some big-hearted, loving guy named Jesse James Willis III, a native Houstonian, who bears the namesake of his father and grandfather.

Even after having initially crossed paths some two decades ago, Willis stumbled upon Woods.

Once again.

However, this time, their reuniting had become far more arousing and captivating. In no particular order, though.

Willis then thought it necessary to ask Woods out on a date. Woods graciously said yes.

Then they went out on a date at some point.

And another one.

And another one.

And another one.

And…well, you get the point.

Then things got more and more serious between the two, this after Willis had won Woods’ heart. And vice versa.

MELODY’S G.O.A.T. — Fast forward to September 6, 2018, Willis sensed after a little more than two decades, there was no time to allow another 20 years elapse, much less a year. That was the day Willis proposed. That was the day Woods said yes.

Fast forward to September 6, 2018, Willis sensed that after a little more than two decades, there was no time to allow another 20 years elapse, much less a year.

That was the day Willis proposed. That was the day Woods said yes.

Now here they are, months away from their much-anticipated wedding, months away from a tear-jerking documentary that figures to create a global buzz, months away from a book that figures to find its way on the New York Times best-seller list.

Yep. Reunited, and it feels so good.

“Honestly, I never been so excited about a totally New Year,” said Woods, explaining how 2019 will be a new beginning for her, particularly after having endured and outlast so much adversity. “I had to understand that happiness is not out there, it’s in you. I always had the key to being happy, but know I understand I have the power to choose what to accept and let go of.”

AFTER SHE SUFFERED AWHILE — Still, when the dust settled, when the adversary sensed that he had this prized Texas businesswoman down for the count and rendered unto her a potential death sentence, here comes God, His usual reliable Self, showing on her behalf, thus cross-examining the enemy’s plots and schemes as only He could.

For Woods, chances are, she will find herself clinging tight to her fiancée on New Year’s Eve, unleashing tears of joy, the kind of tears that seemed displaced last year around this time.

“I’m going into a New Year more confident, stronger, determined more than ever,” said Woods, still placing her smile on public display which, as far as she is concerned, is just where it belongs. “God prepared me for this moment and I’m ready to share my testimony with the world…not just my dark days, but my brighter days.”

Credit the fact that after having endured enough turmoil and hardships, enough heartbreaks and letdowns, enough unfavorable situations and circumstances, she still persevered in that she’s able to identify when God is strategically positioning and elevating her for promotion.

IN THAT ORDER — “I’m going into a New Year more confident, stronger, determined more than ever,” said Woods, still placing her smile on public display which, as far as she is concerned, is just where it belongs. “God prepared me for this moment and I’m ready to share my testimony with the world…not just my dark days, but my brighter days.”

So bring on 2019 and everything that comes with it.

Because there’s no doubt this Texas businesswoman is destined to continue to do things big — with her soon-to-be-husband right alongside her, cheering her on.

“Releasing my documentary, starting my nonprofit organization, my book and, most of all, marrying best friend and sharing our love story. Also opening 4 new businesses by 2020,” said Woods, reviewing her forthcoming itinerary for such remarkable time as now. “We are ready to share and help change families’  lives for the better.”

All of these heaven-mandated promotions — all of these well-deserved blessings after having survived arguably the greatest tragedies of her life.

Houston’s Tamara Washington overcomes the spirit of fear, makes her authorship debut as a result


For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7 KJV)


DALLAS — Tamara Washington, at one point in time, admittedly was uncomfortable.

Very, very uncomfortable, she recalls.

“I didn’t feel comfortable sharing with those around me,” Washington, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, said, recalling her assortment of challenges as it pertains to sharing her personal testimonies. “So it made things more challenging to overcome. Now, I’m seeking to encourage someone’s heart so they would know they’re not alone.”


GOD’S LEADING LADY 

SMILING HER WAY THROUGH — In making her authorship debut, Tamara C. Washington has appropriately disclosed her testimonies and valiant contributions to book entitled, “I Rise: Living Beyond The Bruises.”

Fortunately for Washington, she’s been afforded the ideal platform whereby she has displayed a great deal of transparency.

In making her authorship debut, Washington has appropriately disclosed her testimonies and valiant contributions to book entitled, “I RISE: Living Beyond The Bruises.”

A book that is forwarded by accomplished Flint, Michigan-based author, empowerment extraordinaire, and Kilgore Publishing founder Precious S. Brown, “I RISE: Living Beyond The Bruises” made its presence on the market on December 17.


PURCHASE “I RISE” RIGHT HERE: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07LBMFQP7

“I’ve had the desire to write a book for a long as I can remember,” Washington, a native of Cade, Louisiana — “Some the greatest things have come from some of the smallest places on the map,” she said of her rural hometown — who currently resides in the Houston area. “I recall having the desire to write a book as early as my adolescent years. So what was simply a desire has become reality.”

As for the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience through “I RISE,” Washington emphasized, among other things, that, “It is nearly impossible to have healthy relationships with others when you’re separated from yourself within.”

Now that her published work has come to fruition, not only has Washington broken out of her comfort zone — both in the natural and spirit — but, to her credit, she’s going to great lengths to help others with similar personalities to follow suit.

CREATING A LEGACY — Now that her published work has come to fruition, not only has Washington broken out of her comfort zone — both in the natural and spirit — but, to her credit, she’s going to great lengths to help others with similar personalities to follow suit.

“I began writing the book for the purpose of helping people,” Washington explained. “I’ve often had the experience of feeling alone when going through life’s situations.”

In a detailed breakdown of “I RISE: Living Beyond the Bruises” at Amazon.com, this awe-inspiring and compelling written document is a collaboration of  women, each of whom have worked diligently to overcome insecurities, shame, identity crises, uncertainties and more.

“As you turn the pages of this book, you will gain hope and encouragement to overcome the obstacles you face,” said a spokesperson for Brown’s book, which is her ninth published work to date.

For Washington, while her contributing piece to “I RISE: Living Beyond the Bruises” is her first published work, it certainly isn’t her last, she acknowledged.


“I plan to write multiple books to elaborate on several topics that were briefly mentioned in ‘I RISE.'”  — Author Tamara C. Washington 


RISING STOCK — A book that is forwarded by accomplished Flint, Michigan-based author, empowerment extraordinaire, and Kilgore Publishing founder Precious S. Brown, “I Rise: Living Beyond The Bruises” made its presence on the market on December 17.

Much to her delight, Washington has become the beneficiary of an array of positive feedback since the release of “I RISE.”

“I anticipate receiving lots of feedback” said Washington, adding that her grandest supporters have been her local church, as well as her Pastor and spiritual father, Apostle Dr. W. E. Brown.

“I would also like to give special thanks to the leaders of Covenant Temple Churches Worldwide for their unconditional love, support, prayers, and guidance throughout the years I’ve been a part of their ministry,” Washington continued.

MORE TO COME — For Washington, while her contributing piece to “I RISE: Living Beyond the Bruises” is her first published work, it certainly isn’t her last, she acknowledged.

For what it’s worth, amongst the factors about which Washington is mostly proud is this anthology has created an international buzz since its much-anticipated release.

“(This book) will reach many all over the world,” Washington said. So this project has given me the ability to share my testimony with the word of the Lord in mind. My desire is to reach the hearts of many that they, too, would ask the question: ‘What must I do to be saved?’”

Houston entrepreneur Sherry Burks making her presence felt through the popular London Kouture Virgin Hair

A proud native of Canton, Burks is widely known for being a fixture for London Kouture Virgin Hair, an up-and-coming venture she is afforded the golden opportunity to provide efficient and reliable customer service, particularly as it relates to educational and quality hair.

For Burks, the mastermind behind the popular London Kouture brand, that she has found her niche in the ever-so-competitive world of entrepreneurship has benefited her mightily in recent years, in large part because starting her own business had always been one of her grandest long-term ambitions.

“I’m from a small town, Canton, Mississippi, and I didn’t have a role model,” Burks told Making Headline News this week. “I was self-driven to be an entrepreneur.”

TEXAS-SIZED IMPACT — For Burks, her sustained success as a well-established business owner goes back to her childhood days as a youngster in the small town of Canton, where God had strategically handpicked her to accomplished big things in Texas — and beyond.

To her distinctly unique credit, Burks never shied away from her monumental dreams of becoming her own boss. Heck, if nothing else, all she’s done since erecting her London Kouture Virgin Hair venture is see to it that she steadfastly do things big in Texas — and beyond.

“I’ve visited many cities,” Burks said of a London Kouture Virgin Hair business that is steadily attracting more of a global presence. “My favorite is Los, Angeles, Atlanta, and Las, Vegas.”

Interestingly, that Burks has successfully gotten her business off the ground and on what is shaping up to be a global landscape, she has been destined to add yet another endeavor to her immeasurable entrepreneurship repertoire.

“My personal mission is solely to start a non-profit organization to help ladies of all ages across the world,” said Burks whom, just last week was a guest speaker on www.Gospelnation.com, during which she discussed her rise as a notable entrepreneur and advocate for young ladies who aspire to start their own business.

But understand this notion also: Adams emphasizes, among other things, that she isn’t merely pinning blame on men as to why she’s presently single.

So don’t get it twisted.


“The book was written to encourage, motivate, and help others reflect on their decisions when it comes to dating. One thing that sets this book apart is that I am not blaming men as to why I am single. I blame myself. I use my story from being married to now divorced, starting over with dating to help others who has had to start over too.” — Author T. L. Adams

ISN’T SHE LOVELY? Armed with a wealth of beauty, Adams is a divorced mom of two children whom, as a gifted author, deemed it essential to share before the world a variety of issues, particularly as it pertains to dating – most notably various forms of pain, frustration, and disappointment.

 

“I believe that going from married to single is a hard transition in itself, but I believe that in everything (I’ve done), I have learned many lessons throughout this process that I wanted to share with others.”

She’s done just that, courtesy of what undoubtedly is a must-read book, one whereby she’s holding herself accountable as to why she’s single — at least for the time being.

“In my book, I own that I am the reason I am single,” Adams said without hesitation once again. “As I talked with different females, I realized there is a trend of successful single women. I was trying to figure out what the problem was. It came down to the list. Our list has prevented us from being in relationships because we are looking for Mr. Perfect, and we need to realize that it does not exist.”
