Arkansas businesswoman Mykia Brooks defies slew of odds, establishes a flourishing nonprofit organization


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 NIV)


GOD’S BEACON OF LIGHT 

SHYNE ON ME — A native of Blytheville, Arkansas, Mykia Brooks is the founder and CEO of Shyne Her Light INC., her Mid-South-area non-profit organization that is centered largely on promoting unity within women empowerment.

To her distinctly unique credit, Mykia Brooks isn’t your typical 27-year-old.

Credit the fact that she’s diligently on fire for God as arguably the biggest reason why.
For what it’s worth, it is due in large part to Brooks’ spirited and innovative disposition that have greatly enabled her to function mightily in her element, both as a Pastor and thriving entrepreneur — with God, her Helper, steering the way.
“What I like most is the women who are motivated by God (and that God is) using me to share my story or encourage them,” Brooks, during an interview this week with Making Headline News said, when asked what she likes the most about her flourishing venture.

Interestingly, Shyne Her Light sometime last year was spearheaded as a women empowerment group on Facebook and nearly 400 women have since joined Brooks’ credible organization, which has become widely known for its fervent commitment to empower, equip, and edify women to become the best versions of themselves.

Moreover, Brooks’ nonprofit organization has steadfastly set itself apart as an advocate for mental health, diabetes, and cancer, she told MHN.

That’s not all.

“Shyne Her Light INC. believes in helping, motivating, and inspiring every woman, no matter her race, background, or where she is from,” Brooks said. “(We strive to) soar into the greatness that she is born to be.”

RAPID GROWTH — Interestingly, Shyne Her Light sometime last year was spearheaded as a women empowerment group on Facebook and nearly 400 women have since joined Brooks’ credible organization, which has become widely known for its fervent commitment to empower, equip, and edify women to become the best versions of themselves..

In addition, Shyne Her Light INC. customarily provides mentoring for individuals ranging in ages 16-and-up, focusing mainly on personal development, professional development, business marketing, and spiritual guidance.

Also, Shyne Her Light INC. hosts business seminars for women, particularly those who aspire to start a business or currently run a business, but are seeking to network or gain pertinent information that would greatly enable them to become businesswomen.

“We look forward to the now and future to helping women no matter the situation or her past soar and evolve,” Brooks said.

By and large, Brooks’ Shyne Her Light INC. emerged amid humble beginnings. Amongst the reasons is that Brooks has surpassed things in her life, a trend that had ultimately given way to her ability to disconnect her from her purpose, as mentioned in a detailed introduction of her organization at https://www.shyneherlight.org/aboutceo.


THE PROVERBS 31 AFFECT 

Though she has yet to reach her 30’s, Brooks undoubtedly has endured her share of turmoil, from having conquered depression, molestation, low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, mental abuse in relationships, diabetes, and financial struggles, among other things.

But God…

“She has overcome her biggest giants and uses her pain and trauma to empower other women to soar,” said a spoke for Brooks Shyne Her Light INC.

Interestingly and much to her delight, Brooks’ credible organization was birthed primarily when God once commanded her “to keep shining your light,” she recalls.

She’s since taken her Father’s direct commands and made it apart of the divine purpose for which she was created.

Yep, that’s just like God, always providing for His children a much-needed way of escape.


“God gave me that when I was being mentally abused,” said Brooks, alluding to the startup of her nonprofit. “Every time I post about Shyne Her Light, I’m reminded how I beat depression, sickness, suicidal, overcame low self-esteem, and created a platform for women to soar and become whom God intended for them to be.”


Brooks is overwhelmingly grateful of the notion that all things have worked together for her good.

“I knew that I (was) created for a purpose even when I fought my toughest battles of dealing with diabetes and going through the process of almost losing my eyesight,” Brooks explained. “God’s hands were on me for such a time like this. I stand for every woman that have or is facing depression, molestation, hardship, and healing.”

WHAT ABOUT US? Shyne Her Light INC. customarily provides mentoring for individuals ranging in ages 16-and-up, focusing mainly on personal development, professional development, business marketing, and spiritual guidance. Also, Shyne Her Light hosts business seminars for women, particularly those who aspire to start a business or currently run a business, but is seeking to network or gain pertinent information that would greatly enable them to become business women.

Upon graduating high school in 2010, Brooks earned an Associate’s Degree in Criminology Psychology from Arkansas Northeastern Community College in May 2013.

She is currently enrolled at Liberty University, where she is pursuing an undergraduate degree in Life Coach and Counseling Psychology and is expected to graduate is May 2021.

She will then pursue a Masters in Professional Counseling (Clinical Mental Health) and boasts lofty aspirations of becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor.

Though she has yet to reach her 30’s, Brooks undoubtedly has endured her share of turmoil, from having conquered depression, molestation, low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, mental abuse in relationships, diabetes, and financial struggles, among other things.

A progressive nonprofit organization that has enjoyed constant success since it went into full operations on September 2, 2019, Brooks’ itinerary includes hosting Shyne Her Light’s inaugural Meet & Greet Seminar on December 21 at 6:30 p.m. CST at Nehemiah’s Holy Temple, the church she pastors that’s located at 1400 Chickasawba in Blytheville.

An event that will be accompanied by the theme, “Sunshine Like A Boss, Act Like A Woman” and is free and open to the public, this meet and greet will feature a few speakers, many of whom will provide strategic insight on starting a business, personal finances, business finances, skin care, having a healthy lifestyle, everyday makeup for working women, digital marking, and “so much more,” Brooks said.


SEASON OF DESTINY STEPS 

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — Upon graduating high school in 2010, Brooks earned an Associate’s Degree in Criminology Psychology from Arkansas Northeastern Community College in May 2013. She is currently enrolled at Liberty University, where she is pursuing an undergraduate degree in Life Coach and Counseling Psychology and is expected to graduate is May 2021.

Brooks’ Shyne HER Light was originally named “Shyne Your Light,” which was an encouragement name to which God had introduced her when she was praying on a way to escape a toxic relationship mired by mental abuse.

Interestingly, Brooks would subsequently change the name of her organization to “Shyne HER Light” once her empowerment group was officially established, in large part because she realized all through which she has gone was to help the next woman.

To her credit, she’s been nothing short of remarkable — with God, her Helper, steering the way.

Is Mid-South entrepreneur Kyjione King the pole fitness industry’s best kept secret?

 

A THING OF BEAUTY 

RAISING THE BAR — When it comes to pole fitness, Kyjione King would be the first to enlighten the masses that are a slew of life-enhancing, confidence-building benefits surrounding an ever-so-popular activity that will soon become a sport in the Olympics. King, 31, is the founder and CEO of Kiki Dance Studio LLC told Making Headline News this week.

DALLAS — Please don’t get it twisted.

When it comes to pole fitness, Kyjione King would be the first to enlighten the masses that there are a slew of life-enhancing, confidence-building benefits surrounding an ever-so-popular activity that will soon become a sport in the Olympics.

That’s not all, said King, the founder and CEO of Kiki Dance Studio LLC told Making Headline News this week.

“(This kind activity) is kid friendly,” King said.

To grasp a thorough concept of why King’s divine purpose is connected largely to a pole fitness adventure that is steadily attracting more of a global presence, look no further than the assortment of hurdles about which she had to clear, particularly during her youth.

For years, King, 31, admittedly had struggled with low self-esteem and, as she put it forthrightly, “I definitely know how those who don’t feel as confident. I can relate.”

That certainly isn’t the case today for King, a Jonesboro, Arkansas-based businesswoman, who’s widely known also as a certified fitness group trainer through the American Sports and Fitness Association.

AIM HIGH — As King acknowledged, her rise to becoming the pole fitness industry’s best kept secret stemmed from her past struggles with getting her weight under control.

A native of Blytheville, Arkansas, King’s Kiki Dance Studio is located at 721 South Gee Street, Unit A, in Jonesboro.

As for King’s progressive, thriving business venture, Diverse Pole Fitness studio customarily offers a variety of exercises with the pole as a strategically unique way to build strength and confidence while focusing on weight loss.

“We believe that pole fitness will provide a healthier and longer life,” said King, whose experience in her selected industry spans roughly five years. “Pole fitness helps with your psychological and emotional health in reducing stress.”

Most importantly, King acknowledged, her company is committed to providing its clients with a safe and clean studio.  “Our mission is to provide a warm, supportive, and creative atmosphere to satisfy customers through core conditioning, flexibility training, and pole fitness,” King said. “Kiki Dance Studio is a place where you can feel comfortable and attractive, while increasing your self- confidence and self-esteem.”

All things considered, media pundits worldwide are starting to become knowledgeable of just how much pole fitness essentially has become a globally-acclaimed activity, not to mention a way of life for many who have come to embrace what undoubtedly is a beloved sport.

According to a report at https://www.lifehack.org/, when people hear about fitness and the health benefits of different forms of workouts, they seldom think about pole dancing as a viable option. Much like some popular Latino dances like tango, which started out in shady back alleys of poor neighborhoods only to later gain popularity across the globe, pole dancing has quickly become a very popular form of exercise and even a competitive event, according to the Life Hack report.

That’s not all.

According to the Life Hack report, not only is pole fitness a great way to embrace your inner sexiness, but it also has numerous health benefits that shouldn’t be overlooked.

King, whose Kiki Dance Studio is three years removed from having gone into operations, was especially appreciative of the fact that the mainstream media is starting to observe pole fitness for what it is: a credible and effective way to help with your psychological and emotional health in reducing stress.

“My personal mission for doing this work is to build confidence and improve the health in every woman that I encounter,” said King, whose immeasurable talents through pole fitness have been discovered in a variety of places around the countries.


“Our facility offers a variety of different classes such as ‘Twist It Like Kiki,’ which is sensational flexibility training class as we focus on targeting key areas of the body to gain and improve your flexibility and mobility.

In addition, King’s studio offers what is known as Pole Body Bootcamp, which is deemed an “intense powered workout,” she said.

“We also offer Succulent Motion, which is one of the most important parts of a pole dance routine, because it gives you a break between exhausting and challenging pole moves and holds, as well as gives more room for expressive dancing,” King explained. “It allows you to freely move your body in a more creative and expressive way so that your dance works with the music lyrics and not against it.”

MAKING MASSIVE HEADLINES — King, whose Kiki Dance Studio is three years removed from having gone into operations, was especially appreciative of the fact that the mainstream media is starting to observe pole fitness for what it is: a credible and effective way to help with your psychological and emotional health in reducing stress.

It wasn’t long thereafter that pole fitness had ultimately emerged as her passion, which connected her with her vision, which connected her with her purpose. Her divine purpose, that is.

Look at her today, basking in the glory of her element unlike never before — which, to her credit, is a far cry from those days she found herself struggling to outlast self-esteem.

“I was inspired by taking a class myself for weight loss,” King said. “I use to weigh 223 pounds at the time and seen how it was such a fun workout, and even the warm-ups were dynamic. I pushed and pushed, even my children encouraged me to do so as they pole as well, and we offer ‘Mommy and Me’ classes.”


WE’RE ALL IN

DID YOU KNOW? According to the Life Hack report, not only pole fitness a great way to embrace your inner sexiness, but it also has numerous health benefits that shouldn’t be overlooked.

At the end of the real day, all that matters for this accomplished Mid-South-area entrepreneur is that she’s gone to her great lengths to defy arguably the grandest of odds, a journey that ultimately steered her to her destiny.

“I had gone through a horrible divorce and I needed to find myself again,” said King, a certified CPR and first aid certified specialist whose community service includes having participated in the 2018 Black Beach in Biloxi, Mississippi, the Jonesboro Salvation Army’s Toy Drives for Christmas, as well as having sponsored the 2017 Kids Day Jonesboro.

“I completely lost who I was, and once I began taking these classes, I felt undefeated and seen a total transformation of myself. I was so amazed, and ever since then, it’s been constant self-motivation and determination.”

So don’t get it twisted.

Arkansas author Victoria Evans’ ‘Pieces Of Me’ figures to be a brilliant must read, constant page-turner


I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. (Ecclesiastes 9:11 KJV)


DALLAS — Victoria Evans had no lofty idea.

In fact, she couldn’t even see it, quite frankly.

Then just like that, God stepped in and revealed Himself as only He could.


PIECES OF SUCCESS 

DESTINY STEPS — A credible life coach and recent graduate of Jonesboro’s Life Coach School of Arkansas (or LCSA), Victoria Evans is the mastermind behind the soon-to-be-released book entitled, “Pieces Of Me,” her newly-assembled written document that is expected to help advance the kingdom mightily.

For Evans, amongst the things she discovered was that God’s revelation had come wrapped up in a promise, a pledge that would ultimately change the overall landscape of her life.

Never mind that she wasn’t so swift to embrace that about which was unfolding right before her very eyes.

“It took a while to accept what was put in front of me, but I made a decision to follow God’s promise,” Evans, a Jonesboro, Arkansas-area author, told Making Headline News this week.

For what it’s worth, it’s wasn’t until Evans steadfastly followed God’s lead that she, in turn, was introduced to the vision for which she was created.

NOT TOO EARLY — While a release date for Evans’ book has yet to be determined, Evans told MHN on Thursday that her new project is scheduled to be available this summer and that consumers can began requesting presale orders.

A credible life coach and recent graduate of Jonesboro’s Life Coach School of Arkansas (or LCSA), Evans is the mastermind behind the soon-to-be-released book entitled, “Pieces Of Me,” her newly-assembled written document that is expected to help advance the kingdom mightily.

While a release date for Evans’ book has yet to be determined, she told MHN on Thursday that her new project is scheduled to be available this summer and that consumers can began requesting presale orders.

Evans is scheduled to take part in an East Coast promotional radio tour in June, during which she will promote her new book. Also, she will be the keynote speaker at a commencement in the coming months, during which she will be afforded the golden opportunity to promote “Pieces Of Me.”


AND THE BIBLE SAYS…

To her credit, Evans’ “Pieces Of Me” figures to be an constant page-turner, primarily because it is centered largely on reaching people whom she says are “silently dying” or “suffering in pain,” particularly from the struggles they sense are too embarrassing to speak about, she said.

“I want to be a voice for others,” Evans says without hesitation.

It is, by all accounts, because of her eloquent voice through “Pieces Of Me” that has proven to serve as not just a spiritual spokesperson for those in dire need of breakthrough but, above all, her voice through her writings is indicative of just how much God has entrusted her to help enrich and empower the lives of His people for such a pivotal time as now.

GOD’S LEADING LADY — For Evans, amongst the things she discovered was that God’s revelation came wrapped up in a promise, a pledge that would ultimately change the overall landscape of her life. Never mind that she wasn’t so swift to embrace that about which was unfolding right before her very eyes.

Never mind that she initially wasn’t so swift to embrace that about which was unfolding right before her very eyes.


“My message through this book is that it is okay to go through struggles and sometimes feel like we aren’t going to make it, but it’s what we do to grow from it that matters. We get to choose to live or die in those situations. Not just physical death, but spiritually as well.” — Author Victoria Evans


Although she’s already fielding favorable feedback from a book that is months away from its official release, Evans emphasized, among other things: “I hope that the people that know me now can look at me and feel that (they are) much more empowered to live out their dreams and know that there is nothing you can’t do regardless of adversities we face.”

A book she needed somewhere in the neighborhood of a year-and-a-half to compose — “I began writing the book the summer of 2017 and I finished at the end of 2018,” she said — Evans is thoroughly convinced that “Pieces Of Me” is in alignment with her divine purpose.

“I know this book is a part of the purpose God has created for me, because every one of us has a story to tell,” Evans said. “We just have to find a way to tell it. Some choose through music, others through art. My choice was writing.”

And what a remarkably compelling masterpiece it is.


VICTORIOUS VICTORIA 

NATIONAL IMPACT — Evans is scheduled to take part in an East Coast promotional radio tour in June, during which she will promote her new book. Also, she will be the keynote speaker at a commencement in the coming months, during which she will be afforded the golden opportunity to promote “Pieces Of Me.”

Never mind that she initially wasn’t so swift to embrace that about which was unfolding right before her very eyes.

“Not many people know my background or the things that I have faced in my life,” said Evans, adding that another book is surely forthcoming. “And, for a lot of it, I chose to keep quiet in fear of hurting others. It came to a point in my life that I had to make a decision: Do I choose me or everyone else? I had to choose me. For the first time in a while, it was like breathing that first deep breath after drowning.”

Talk about appropriately picking up the broken pieces, all of which were designed to catapult her to her destiny from the outset.

Dallas/Forth Worth entrepreneur Christale Thompson carrying out her vision as a resourceful event designer


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


DALLAS — Some time ago, God gave Christale Thompson a life-changing vision.

Eight years ago to be technical.

According to scripture, “eight,” by all accounts, signifies a “new beginning.”


GOD-INSPIRED VISION 

DESTINY STEPS UNFOLDING — Christale Thompson has made some pretty immeasurable strides as the owner and CEO of Jeanelle Decor And Event Stylist, her Dallas-Fort Worth-area venture that is centered on ensuring that each of clients are stress free and, as she appropriately acknowledged, comes away, “knowing that their dreams have come to life.”

For Thompson, her much-anticipated and well-deserved “new beginning” has benefited her mightily, particularly as a flourishing entrepreneur.

“I have been decorating homes and events for eight years now,” Thompson, 36, told Making Headline News this week.


STYLIN’ AND PROFILIN’ 

And, to her distinctly unique credit, coupled with the purpose for which God has created her, Thompson has made some pretty immeasurable strides as the owner and CEO of Jeanelle Decor And Event Stylist, her Dallas-Fort Worth-area venture that is centered on ensuring that each of clients are stress free and, as she appropriately acknowledged, comes away, “knowing that their dreams have come to life.”


THING OF BEAUTY 

MASSIVE SUPPORT — A progressive business that caters to people and groups of all ages, Jeanelle Decor And Event Stylist had come full circle, in part because of Thompson’s solid support system that’s comprised of a gallery of loved one, close friends, and acquaintances.

A native of Eudora, Arkansas, a Southern Chicot County town that is comprised of roughly 2,269 residents according to latest U. S. census, Thompson’s Jeanelle Decor And Event Stylist has given way to this resourceful businesswoman emerging as one of the finest and most efficient event designers in the DFW Metroplex.


PURE ELEGANCE 

ONE WOW MOMENT — A native of Eudora, Arkansas, a Southern Chicot County town that is comprised of roughly 2,269 residents according to latest U. S. census, Thompson’s Jeanelle Decor And Event Stylist has given way to this resourceful businesswoman emerging as one of the finest and most efficient event designers in the DFW Metroplex.

As Thompson — who’s widely known as Jeanelle Chris — explained, her steadfast commitment to exceeding her customers’ expectations has given way of sustained success for a business she hopes generates more of a national presence, much sooner than later.


“I love to meet and interact with people. I love to see the reaction on their faces when they see their dreams come to life. It keeps me going.” — Dallas/Fort Worth Entrepreneur Christale Thompson


A progressive business that caters to people and groups of all ages, Jeanelle Decor And Event Stylist had come full circle, in part because of Thompson’s solid support system that’s comprised of a gallery of loved one, close friends, and acquaintances.

“I want to thank Janice Thompson, Kim Dalcour, Shirkari Campbell, First Lady Melonye Batson, and my daughters for believing in me when I was too shy to believe in myself,” said Thompson, who will be hosting her inaugural “God’s Vision” board party in March at a date to be announced.

Now that she’s a little more than eight years in on an event designing business that undoubtedly is aligned with her God-mandated purpose, this young entrepreneur is especially appreciative of the fact that her vision is steadily coming full circle.

Just as God had planned all along.

“It’s important that I inspire others daily by being humble and respectful,” said Thompson, a graduate of Eudora High School and a former student at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (or UAPB). “(It’s important to) let them know that this little black girl from Arkansas rock and will not stop at nothing.”

Now that she’s diligently working her vision through the ever-so-competitive entrepreneurship industry, Thompson doesn’t shy away from the notion that it is her civic duty to reach back and inspire others to follow suit, thus maximize their potential through their gifts.

Just as she’s doing — with God, her Helper, steering the way.

“Follow your dreams and step out on faith,” said Thompson, offering some worthy advice to aspiring entrepreneurs. God got me the rest of the way.”

Indeed He does.

Eight years and counting.

Conway, Arkansas author Christel West discovers her divine purpose through her ‘Journey Back To Me’ book


Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ. (Galatians 1:10 NIV)


Christel West had just about had enough.

“I had lived a life being and doing what everyone else wanted or thought I should be and in,” West, a Conway, Arkansas businesswoman, told Making Headline News this week, explaining in great detail the notable events that led to her delving off into the authorship industry. “Doing so, I lost me, so I had to take the journey back to find who God created me to be.”


HOW THE WEST WAS WON

VISION UNFOLDED — A book whereby she grasped the vision to assemble some three years ago, Christel West’s “The Journey Back To Me: Uncovering The Treasure Within” is widely described as a book for individuals, particularly those who aspire to break a reoccurring cycle and refrain from going in West describes as “circles with their lives,” according to a news release at http://www.abnewswire.com.

It was, by all accounts, due in large part to the fact that West deemed it essential to shift her focus to God for a divine sense of direction that she had ultimately recaptured her life back.

And, to her credit, she spoke extensively about her assortment of personal experiences in her informative, awe-inspiring book entitled, “The Journey Back To Me: Uncovering The Treasure Within.”

“Humans have long been known to revisit history for answers. Christel West is certain that this expository book will motivate readers to journey back through their childhood, and gather all the pieces of their lives — to discover what’s true about life,” said a spokesperson for West’s ‘The Journey Back To Me: Uncovering The Treasure Within.’ “She hopes that the insight obtained as readers go through her book will help them uncover all the lies that hold them prisoner and how they can choose to come face-to-face with them and find their liberation.”

A book that made its official release in Summer 2018, West began writing her story sometime in 2016.

KEEPING IT 100 — West spoke extensively about her assortment of personal experiences in her informative, awe-inspiring book entitled, “The Journey Back To Me: Uncovering The Treasure Within.”

“I thought I would call it, ‘Who Told You That You Were Naked,’” West said.

As it turned out, though, God had other ideas for a title for West’s written document.


“Later on, the spirit revealed that was a chapter that would be written in the ‘Journey Back To Me’ and a question the spirit needed me to answer. I finished writing my story I’m June of 2018, and it was officially published on July 31, 2018.” — Author Christel West 


Nearly five months removed from its much-anticipated release, West’s “The Journey Back To Me: Uncovering The Treasure Within” has been mostly favorable for West, a native of Detroit who also functions as Life Coach and Motivational Speaker and the Co-Founder of T.R.U.E., a non-profit organization she oversees with her husband, Marco West.

An acronym that stands for Teaching Restoring Understanding Establishing your T.R.U.E. Self, T.R.U.E, routinely conducts individual and group workshops through its True Self Outreach, one that is geared toward establishing, e-establishing, and healing the family structure, Christel West said.


MORE ON CHRISTEL WEST: www.christelwest.com

As for her book, West said, “The feedback has been about the courage that I had to embody, to share such personal things about my life like being molested and not knowing how to be intimate with my husband, because I had disconnected from my emotions due to this trauma that happened at the age of 12.

“I have been told, ‘Thank you’ from several people, who just needed answers, because without the understanding, we remain in the cycle.”

Because of who she is and because of where God is taking her, amongst the things about which West has found especially intriguing that her reading audience has possessed the pivotal things they so desperately sought prior to crossing paths with her book.

“People have found hope and encouragement from my story,” West, reciting the words to the familiar passage that is housed in 3 John 1:2. “So many want prosperity and good health, but haven’t done their soul work. If we are going to live healthy, long, prosperous lives, we have to rid ourselves of the toxic feelings and emotions that has caused us to self-sabotage and live in wilderness, finances, relationships, etc.”

Remarkably and appropriately stated by this brilliantly amazing author, one who had just about had enough.

Arkansas author Dr. Alandrus P. Spencer named National TAP Author of the Year

Dr. Alandrus P. Spencer isn’t just a Pastor, who often preaches to his congregation about enjoying the fruits of its labor.

Much to his delight, he’s steadfastly savoring his.

His latest installment of fruit came courtesy of a much-anticipated milestone, one by which he had diligently sought for the past six months.

A native of Chicago and the Senior Pastor of Touching Lives Ministry, Inc., Dr. Spencer was named National TAP Awards Author Of The Year during Saturday night’s second annual ceremony from Jonesboro, Arkansas.

ONE SHINING MOMENT — A native of Chicago and the Senior Pastor of Touching Lives Ministry, Inc., Dr. Alandrus P. Spencer was named National TAP Awards Author Of The Year during Saturday night’s second annual ceremony from Jonesboro, Arkansas. Pictured with Dr. Spencer is wife, Veronica.

 

Dr. Spencer’s latest honor comes a little more than a year after the release of his first book entitled, Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment, a spiritually-driven written document that has been effectively anointed an award-winner.

An event that was established by Jonesboro-area public speaker and award-winning author Terrell Jenkins, the National TAP Awards are designed to acknowledge individuals in a variety of categories for their hard work and valiant contributions to the community.

Fellow author Tyneisha Collins of Osceola, Arkansas was named the National TAP Author Of The Year during last year’s inaugural ceremony.

An event that was established by Jonesboro-area public speaker and award-winning author Terrell Jenkins, the National TAP Awards are designed to acknowledge individuals in a variety of categories for their hard work and valiant contributions to the community.

For Dr. Spencer, he said being named National TAP Awards Author Of The Year is a testament of his overall body of work as a relatively newcomer to the authorship industry.

“The feeling was one of shock and a very humbling experience, because I knew I was listed in a category that had great authors who have written some very good books,” said Dr. Spencer, who learned of his nomination for the award back in mid-May.

A spiritually gut-checking and life-enhancing written document that is comprised of 90 pages, Dr. Spencer’s Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment officially hit the market on September 20, 2017, approximately two years after God had revealed to him the vision to write it.

All things considered, his first book has since been nothing short of amazing.

“I leaped on the inside,” Dr. Spencer recalled the moment his name was announced that he was named TAP’s latest Author Of The Year. “Because somehow deep on the inside of me, I knew I stood a good chance. I put the work in alongside of my words, because that’s what faith does.”

Never mind the mixed reactions that had ultimately surfaced amid the release of Dr. Spencer’s book.

WINNER’S CIRCLE — Dr. Spencer’s latest honor comes a little more than a year after the release of his first book entitled, Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment, a spiritually-driven written document that has been effectively anointed an award-winner.

At the end of the real day, this Christian-based preacher-turned-author knows full well there are all sorts of perks that come with serving and being spokesperson for Christ.

“Authors are different and unique and, while I had some to criticize my simplicity in my writing style, I knew that the world is in need of encouragement in its simple form,” Dr. Spencer said. “I love to encourage folks, and I think (because of this award), I am on the right track.”

Amongst those who have helped keep Dr. Spencer on the right track — both in the natural and spirit — is Veronica Spencer, his lifelong companion of 13-plus years.

AND THEN THERE WAS ONE — At the end of the real day, this Christian-based preacher-turned-author knows full well as that there are all sorts of perks that come with serving and being spokesperson for Christ.

“The special thing about my wife is she knows deep inside (my sentiments) before I say anything about how I arrived at that position,” said Dr. Spencer, whose second book (Encouraging Moment: The Turbulence Was Necessary) will be released in the coming weeks. “She is amazingly intelligent and blissfully beautiful and, while it may not be religiously correct to say this, I don’t care. She is my boo and babe.

“To all of my supporters and my manager (Latonya Sanders), I say thank you,” continued Dr. Spencer, who was raised in nearby Blytheville but resides in Jonesboro. “You all know I could not have pulled this off without you and this is simply a win for the team.”

Arkansas Pastor Alandrus P. Spencer honors his wife’s valiant support amid his nomination for National TAP Author Of The Year

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS MOTHER’S DAY 2018 SPECIAL REPORT

 

Who says a Pastor can’t have a boo thang?

Regardless, Dr. Alandrus P. Spencer would be the first to admit that he has one.

A really good one, too, mind you.

WIFE KNOWS BEST — Interestingly and much to Dr. Alandrus Spencer’s delight, it was  his wife, Veronica, who provided him with the much-needed push he needed to make his authorship debut, one that was culminated with the much-anticipated release of his book entitled, Encouraging Moment Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment. A book that has enjoyed sustained success since it officially hit the market on September 20, 2017, Dr. Spencer recently fielded yet another remarkable achievement amid his published masterpiece when he got word of having been nominated for Author Of The Year in the Second Annual National TAP Awards that will place in the coming months from Jonesboro, Arkansas.

“It would take me all day to talk about Veronica Spencer, the love of my life,” Spencer told Making Headline News this week. “Simply put, she has been my diamond, my rock, my boo thang.”

While Dr. Spencer could barely refrain from laughing out loud when referring to his companion of nearly 13 years as his “boo thang,” he acknowledged that it is due in large part to his wife’s unyielding love and tireless support that have contributed mightily to his faith walk with God, thus greatly enabled him to walk boldly in his divine purpose with God, his Helper, leading the way.

“Veronica brings a unique love to the table and has patiently been a solid mom in our blended family of two,” Dr. Spencer said while paying homage to his beloved wife as Mother’s Day 2018 looms.

Interestingly and much to his delight, it was Veronica who provided her husband with the much-needed push he needed to make his authorship debut, one that was culminated with the much-anticipated release of his book entitled, Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment.

A book that has enjoyed sustained success since it officially hit the market on September 20, 2017, Dr. Spencer recently fielded yet another remarkable achievement amid his published masterpiece when he got word of having been nominated for Author Of The Year in the Second Annual National TAP Awards that will place in November from Jonesboro, Arkansas.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY — “Veronica is who inspired and encouraged me to write Encouraging Moment, because she saw it in me long before people were saying it,” Dr. Spencer said. “She saw a person who would go to any length to encourage someone, even when I would face my own set of challenges.”

An event that was established by Jonesboro-area public speaker and award-winning author Terrell Jenkins, the National TAP Awards are designed to acknowledge individuals in a variety of categories for their hard work and valiant contributions to the community.

For Dr. Spencer, a native of Jonesboro and the Senior Pastor of Touching Lives Ministry, Inc., many of his peers sensed that his nomination for such a commendable award is a huge testament to his overall body of work, most notably as an accomplished minister, author, as well as an ambassador to his community.

“The special thing about this award is it helps to highlight the work the home team has put in,” Dr. Spencer said. “My team and covenant partners are the best and the support has been immeasurable, so most of all, I would like to win this award that is right in my home state and for the (home) team.”

VOTE HERE FOR DR. SPENCER STARTING MAY 13 THROUGH JUNE 13: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdJa2BPx2qcyMQXWvWvTWiUtHlGEiK8RRhsgrZLsakNQEThIQ/closedform 

MONUMENTAL MILESTONE AWAITS — For Dr. Spencer, a native of Jonesboro and the Senior Pastor of Touching Lives Ministry, INC, many of his peers sensed that his nomination for such a commendable award is a huge testament to his overall body of work, most notably as an accomplished minister, author, as well as an ambassador to his community.

All things considered, it was because of his wife’s unwavering support, Dr. Spencer is swift to point out, that has especially proven beneficial, particularly for such a time as now.

“Veronica is who inspired and encouraged me to write Encouraging Moment, because she saw it in me long before people were saying it,” Dr. Spencer said. “She saw a person who would go to any length to encourage someone, even when I would face my own set of challenges.”

All of which essentially explains why it is fair game for a Pastor to have a boo thang.

Let the church say Amen.

“Veronica is captivating because, she simply knows who she is and is confident in being herself,” said Dr. Spencer, around here laying it on thick while saluting his bride, as only he could. “Her smile simply lights up the room.”

Hush your mouth…and keep on talking, Reverend!

“Veronica and I work well in ministry together and, as we continue to grow in grace, we have learned this very important principle,” said Dr. Spencer, who couldn’t seem to run out of words while discussing his wife and alluding to the familiar passage that is housed in Matthew 18:19. “And that is the power of agreement. “Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.”

GODLY LOVE BIRDS — While Dr. Spencer couldn’t refrain from laughing out loud when referring to his companion of nearly 13 years as his “boo thang,” he acknowledged that it is due in large part to his wife’s unyielding love and tireless support that have contributed mightily his faith walk with God, thus greatly enabled him to walk boldly in his divine purpose with God, his Helper, leading the way.

Well, that’ll surely preach.

As for having been nominated for TAP Author of The Year, Dr. Spencer said he would be mostly appreciative of his longtime supporters if he emerges victorious, thus comes away with the crystal trophy.

“If I am named Author of the Year, it will certainly speak to several areas, but the very first is how the grace of God has allowed me to get to this moment,” Spencer said. “It would speak to the impact my wife has on my life through her prayer life, love for God, love for me and others. It would speak to the support I have from the home team, family, friends and covenant partners.

“I believe it would speak to people just like me that all things are possible to them that believe,” Dr. Spencer added. “Finally I would like to say thank to Terrell Jenkins and the TAP Award (family) for being a success and helping others to be a success story.”

Something to which his boo thang can greatly attest.

Let the church say Amen.

And then vote.

Arkansas Pastor Jermaine Weeden on his new book: ‘I want my story to motivate others when they are facing the fight of their lives’

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, 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)

 

Jermaine Weeden’s spiritual track record is such that he understands best the power and significance of what it means to abound in the work of the Lord.

CHANGING A GENERATION — It is due in large part to the fact that because amongst God’s greatest desires for us is to live and dwell on the larger side of Him that Arkansas Pastor Jermaine Weeden had become inspired to compose his first book entitled, A Charge to Change: “Taking Authority Over My Life Situations.”

Even if abounding to a point whereby a positive change would ultimately — and ceremoniously — take place.

“Taking authority over life situations and raising up our expectations to be better in every aspect of our lives,” Weeden, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, when asked what is the divine message he’s sending to his reading audience through his recently-released book. “I believe that settling is lessening who we are and what we want to achieve.”

It is due in large part to the fact that because amongst God’s greatest desires for us is to live and dwell on the larger side of Him that Weeden had become inspired to compose his first book entitled, A Charge to Change: “Taking Authority Over My Life Situations.”

PURCHASE JERMAINE WEEDEN’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Charge-Change-Taking-Authority-Situations/dp/1973619814

Released officially on March 23, 2018, Weeden’s A Charge to Change: “Taking Authority Over My Life Situations” is geared largely toward empowering individuals with hope, particularly when faced with difficult changes by which they customarily face.

“This book will give spiritual references to apply to situations that seem hard as well as impossible while encouraging every individual to dig deep inside and change the perspective of one’s mind into a positive and confident mind-set,” said a spokesperson for Weeden’s 140-page book in a detailed description at Amazon.com. “A Charge to Change will bring a truth that changes are sometimes hard to deal with, but you will learn to find your strength during some of the changes that appear.”

Released officially on March 23, 2018, Weeden’s A Charge to Change: “Taking Authority Over My Life Situations” is geared largely toward empowering individuals with hope, particularly when faced with difficult changes by which they customarily face.

All of which essentially sums up why Weeden’s awe-inspiring, thought-provoking written document isn’t just a must-buy but, most importantly, a must-read.

“I want every reader to know that there is definitely power on the inside, but it has to be tapped into in order to work,” Weeden said.

An accomplished minister who is the Senior Pastor of Kingdom Deliverance International Ministries in Gilmore, Arkansas, Weeden’s ministry was established to inspire participation, promote personal and spiritual growth, and to support the molding of effective leadership.

ADVANCING THE KINGDOM BIG TIME — An accomplished minister who is the Senior Pastor of Kingdom Deliverance International Ministries in Gilmore, Arkansas, Weeden’s ministry was established to inspire participation, promote personal and spiritual growth, and to support the molding of effective leadership.

Not to mention a positive, inspiring, progressive, and Godly change which, after all, is an immeasurable suggestion he essentially presents before the masses in his new book.

“My first words were recorded back in May of 2008,” said Weeden, alluding to when he began composing his book that he finished in July 2017.

As expected, the feedback and has been downright gratifying and complementary for a seasoned pastored whose reputation is such that he possesses the spiritual assertiveness and resiliency, particularly as it relates to advancing the kingdom.

PROVEN GODLY RESUME — Weeden’s spiritual track record is such that he understands best the significance of what it means to abound in the work of the Lord.

“The feedback thus far has been that the book is empowering and it gives confidence to face the different challenges that surface while establishing a foundation for remaining focused and strong,” Weeden said. “Men and women that have read the book have given me feedback that the book is talking about their lives and points in their lives that they didn’t think they could overcome some difficult moments.”

Now with a book signing scheduled for May 5, as well as a couple of media availability opportunities, Weeden also has announced that his second book is presently in the works.

THE PEACE OF GOD — Now with a book signing scheduled for May 5, as well as a couple of media availability opportunities, Weeden also has announced that his second book is presently in the works.

“A Charge To Changes was written for all who reads the book…they will know that they have the power within them to change, shift, and determine outcomes, even if it is just them feeling more free that the situation didn’t destroy them,” Weeden said. “I have endured so many hardships, which caused me to grow up with confidence issues and I grew into years of low self-esteem. Christ suffered on the cross, but He never lost His focus. I want my story to motivate others that when they are facing the fight of their lives, the victory is determined by their faith, as well as believing in oneself that, ‘Greater is He(God) that is in me, than He(Enemy) that is in the World.’ We have to let those tough moments motivate us to ensure that the ending is favorable and great.”

Talk about abounding to a point whereby a positive change has taken place in the life of this beloved, big-hearted man of God.

Arkansas author Alandrus P. Spencer to host much-anticipated book signing in Jonesboro as sales continue to soar

Dr. Alandrus P. Spencer’s got a lot going on in Jonesboro, Arkansas.

For all the right reasons, too. 

For starters, Spencer has stiff ties to Jonesboro, considering it is his native establishment, a college town that is comprised of approximately 71,551, according to the latest U.S. census.

Not only that, Spencer and his wife, Veronica, are proud homeowners in Jonesboro, which is the fifth most populous city in the Natural State (the Jonesboro metropolitan is comprised of around 121,026 residents).

“We are in the process of establishing Touching Lives Ministry, INC (Jonesboro location),” Spencer, a longtime Pastor, told Making Headline News this week. “I really enjoy Jonesboro, because there are a lot of people that I have come in contact with that have prosperous mentalities.”

And, in the coming weeks, Spencer’s itinerary will include hosting a booking signing in Jonesboro to promote his inspiring book entitled, Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment.

“Book sales are growing and open doors are on the rise and, as evidenced, I have been blessed with five major book signings in the Big Apple of New York.”

The book signing will take place on May 5 from Noon to 3 pm CST at Christ Ambassadors Ministries International, located at 5114 East Nettleton Avenue.

A spiritually gut-checking and life-enhancing written document that is comprised of 90 pages, Dr. Spencer’s Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment officially hit the market on September 20, 2017, approximately two years after God had revealed to him the vision to write it.

BUY DR. ALANDRUS SPENCER’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Encouraging-Moment-Live-Life/dp/154344038X

“People in Jonesboro love strong and support their very own, and I am happy to be a part of this awesome display of God’s love and encouragement,” Dr. Spencer said.

“I chose to write this book because I love to encourage others, and I felt I could give them these same quotes that challenged and encouraged me during some of life most challenging times,” Dr. Spencer told MHL during an interview in mid-February.

As for hosting the book signing in his native hometown, Dr. Spencer attributed his decision to the valiant support he customarily receives from residents of the city.

“People in Jonesboro love strong and support their very own, and I am happy to be a part of this awesome display of God’s love and encouragement,” Dr. Spencer said.

What’s even more intriguing is that sales of his new book sales are on the rise. Dr. Spencer said.

HOMECOMING FORTHCOMING — In the coming weeks, Dr. Alandrus Spencer’s itinerary will include hosting a booking signing in Jonesboro to promote his inspiring book entitled, Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment.

“Book sales are growing and open doors are on the rise and, as evidenced, I have been blessed with five major book signings in the Big Apple of New York.”

Surely, he couldn’t have enjoyed sustained success without a solid supporting cast.

“My team and I are working to do a few book signings in Jonesboro,” said Dr. Spencer, adding that his book can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Xilbris. “But I keep books with me at all time, because I like to deliver them, to give that personal touch, to build fellowship  and possibly pray for those who may be in need. I live every day to encourage someone in a world that’s missing the importance of encouragement every day.”

Especially in good ole Jonesboro.

For all the right reasons, too.

Accomplished Mid-South businessman Oginga Carr: ‘It is my destiny to help 10,000 people achieve their dreams’

Earlier this week, Oginga Carr was asked why it is imperative that he esteem and inspire others daily.

To his credit, Carr fielded the question as if he expected it.

MAKING MAJOR STRIDES — Much to his delight, Oginga Carr has evolved as an efficient and resourceful businessman, most notably through Epiphany Consulting LLC, a Mid-South-area company that is widely regarded as an organizational structure venture that customarily helps with coaching and consulting for businesses and individuals so that they could appropriately find compliance and clarity.

“Without inspiration, there is no life,” Carr said during an interview with Making Headline News this week. “We need to be not only inspired, but edified.  When we edify one another we grow.  I really don’t care about your what or your why. I care about your how.  We help people find their how.”

Indeed he does.

Carr, in fact, has evolved mightily as an efficient and resourceful businessman, most notably through Epiphany Consulting LLC, a Mid-South-area company that is widely regarded as an organizational structure venture that customarily helps with coaching and consulting for businesses and individuals so that they could appropriately find compliance and clarity.

A native of Little Rock, Arkansas who has been dubbed “One of America’s Top Trainers,” according to various media pundits in a detailed description of Carr’s venture at http://www.ogingacarr.com/, Carr doesn’t shy away from the notion that Epiphany Consulting is unique, in large part because human resources is something we all need.

“Our unique proposition is that we offer you help at developing structure in your organization and your life,” said Carr, whose immense entrepreneurship track record spans a little more than a decade. “Many times business owners are great at a skill, but aren’t very good at the business.”

NATIONAL PRESENCE — A native of Little Rock, Arkansas who has been dubbed “One of America’s Top Trainers,” according to various media pundits in a detailed description of Carr’s venture at http://www.ogingacarr.com/, Carr doesn’t shy away from the notion that Epiphany Consulting is unique, in large part because human resources is something we all need.

For what it’s worth, this is where Carr’s progressively effective business comes into play.

A proud of alum of Little Rock Parkview High School — where the former multi-sport athlete lettered in football, basketball, and baseball — Carr also is an accomplished author, a national seminar leader, as well as an organizational structure expert and consultant.

Interestingly, this Henderson State University graduate is armed with roughly 17 years of experience in sales, management, and Human Resources.

“His passion is in the dynamic of change…dealing with it, working through it, and preparing for it,” said a spokesperson in a detailed description of Carr and his venture at http://www.ogingacarr.com.

Not only that, Carr’s professional resume is solid and diverse, considering he has worked in the telecommunications, flooring, and print industries. For those reasons, he has been appropriately labeled a “serial entrepreneur,” of sorts.

Carr’s primary focuses are geared largely on productivity through structure and human capital development, and he has trained tens of thousands of HR professionals in approximately 49 U. S. states.

Which, much to his delight, is mostly befitting, considering Carr has even had a hand in functioning as a magazine publisher, radio and television show host, not to mention having assumed the role as executive director of a non-profit foundation, among other capacities.

Moreover, Carr’s primary focuses are geared largely on productivity through structure and human capital development, and he has trained tens of thousands of HR professionals in approximately 49 U. S. states.

“My mission is to develop more clarity, content, and consistency in our lives,” Carr said. “If we are clear about our goals, then content of those goals are achievable and we can be consistent in our actions. We can be successful in our lives.”

REMARKABLE TRACK RECORD — Carr’s professional resume is especially diverse, considering he has worked in the telecommunications, flooring, and print industries. For those reasons, he has been appropriately labeled a “serial entrepreneur,” of sorts.

Carr credits the bulk of his success as a thriving businessman to his father, whom he said was undoubtedly one of the biggest inspirations in his life.

Though Carr’s father passed away in 2007, he acknowledged that “he lives with me every day in my actions. He believed that we are a family related by affinity, if not through consanguinity.”

“That means that people who are striving to achieve goals in life are related by their love and passion to improve, even if they are not related by blood,” Carr added. “I welcome all Dream Achievers to my family.”

There is, by all accounts, a valid reason for which Carr essentially has rolled out the figurative red carpet to those who aspire to connect with him.

LISTEN TO HIM — “Our unique proposition is that we offer you help at developing structure in your organization and your life,” said Carr, whose immense entrepreneurship track record spans a little more than a decade. “Many times business owners are great at a skill, but aren’t very good at the business.”

“We live by a hashtag, #teamcrushingit,” Carr said. “That means that we are crushing those obstacles that are in front of us.  We are getting to our goals faster than we thought we could.  We are crushing life.”

In the foreseeable future, Mid-Southerners — Memphians in particular — will be afforded the golden opportunity to learn more about Carr and Epiphany Consulting in a trio of informative events:

  • I Dream I Achieve: The Business Blueprint.  This event is geared toward developing the mindset and the business structure to succeed in business.  “It is the best business development conference in the Mid-South,” Carr said. “We develop events that are all about giving you the skills that you need to be great.”
  • DAD KNEW BEST — Though Carr’s father passed away in 2007, he acknowledged that “he lives with me every day in my actions. He believed that we are a family related by affinity, if not through consanguinity.”

    The Breakthrough Accelerator Bootcamp. “This event is all about accelerating those breakthroughs in your life,” Carr said. “In that event, we celebrated the rebirth of your dreams. How can we cultivate those dreams and be ready to be great?”

  • The Limitless Summit.  “This event is all about creating a limitless life and limitless business,” Carr explained. “What are the keys to living limitless?  We develop those there.”

Also, Carr announced that two new events are presently in the works: Limitless Summit in Fort Worth, Texas and the IDIA Mastermind Retreat in Mexico, where attendees will engage in a five-day experience, during which they will, as Carr said, make those quantum leaps in our lives.

“It is my destiny to help 10,000 people achieve their dreams in 2018,” Carr said. “We are helping people achieve those dreams through products, events, coaching, and consulting, and we are so happy about the outcomes.”
