Is longtime Dallas/Fort Worth businesswoman Kristen J. Price the real estate industry’s best kept secret?


Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. (Philippians 4:6 KJV) 


DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS 

DESTINY STEPS — A native of Dallas, Kristen J. Price, 52, is owner and chief executive officer of Hylton Homes Realty, LLC.

DALLAS — Earlier this week, Texas businesswoman Kristen J. Price wasted little time offering a thorough assessment of her drive in her selected line of work.

She was only keeping it 100.
“Let’s face it,” Price explained during an interview with Making Headline News. “There’s an increasing number of individuals that have the same ethnic makeup and background as myself, who have the thought in their minds that they will never be able to own their own home. I’m here to let them know differently. If they have the desire, tenacity and dream to give it a try, I am here to make that dream a reality with my professional knowledge and guidance in the real estate industry.
“You too can own your own home,” Price continued. “Not just one, but two, three, or however many your heart desires.”

Interestingly, with Price’s expertise and knowledge of the real estate industry, she will steadfastly work tirelessly on her clients’ behalf, all the while making their next home-buying or home-selling experience a pleasant and successful one.


“Therefore, whether you are considering selling a home, looking for a new build or an existing home or in the preliminary stages of a Dallas area real estate search, you have found the best in professional service,” said a spokesperson for Price’s Hylton Homes Realty.


A 1985 graduate of Dallas’ Wilmer-Hutchins High, Price holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration from the University of North Texas in nearby Denton.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — A 1985 graduate of Dallas’ Wilmer-Hutchins High, Price holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration from the University of North Texas in nearby Denton. Consequently, she advanced her education when she earned a Master of Science Degree in Human Relations and Business in 2000 from Amberton University in nearby Garland.

Consequently, she advanced her education when she earned a Master of Science Degree in Human Relations and Business in 2000 from Amberton University in nearby Garland.

As for her immeasurable experience in the ever-so-competitive real estate industry, Price’s tenure spans some 15 years, five of which she served as a sales agent and 10 years as an independent broker.

She is scheduled to teach what is known as the Military Relocation Professional Class on July 17 at the MetroTex Association of Realtors.

Also, Price will conduct a live recording with other media analysts at her local church, Antioch Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church on July 8 at 6:00 p.m. CST.

Given the immense strides she made over the course of the past decade-and-a-half, it’s safe to say that even in the wake of her sustained success, Price’s best and brightest days as a real estate broker are well ahead of her.

This, to her credit, essentially means that Price hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down any time soon, considering she’s walking diligently in her divine purpose.


“Service is my personal mission,” Price said. “I love offering my professional service, expertise, and knowledge of real estate to the consumers. I work for and with my clients. Notice I said ‘for them’ first. I put all of my clients’ interests before my very own. It’s not about me, but all about them and assisting them with accomplishing that one goal of home ownership.”


When asked who were amongst those who inspired her to delve off into such a rewarding and commendable industry, Price deems it essential to customarily recall a somewhat intriguing memory.

“A realtor by the name of Candy Hudson — who represented my husband at the time — and me in the sale of our first home,” Price explained. “She stated to me one day after a meeting with us, ‘Kristen, have you ever thought about doing real estate?’ My response was, ‘No.’ She went on to say that, ‘I think that you would be good at it, because you are such a great communicator.’”


GOD-ORDERED STEPS 

To grasp a thorough concept of why Price speaks with such passion and splendor when assessing the joy of functioning mightily in her element, look no further than the immeasurable strides she’s made as one of Texas’ most resourceful and efficient real estate brokers.

And the rest, as they say, was history, particularly with regards to Price appropriately heeding the wise counsel of Hudson.

“There was not much thought given to the conversation until after we had moved into our new home in Mesquite, Texas,” Price said. “The rest is history.”

Here she is today, not only steadily setting herself apart as one of Texas’ most resourceful and efficient real estate brokers but, much to her delight, she routinely goes to great lengths to ensure that her clients’ dreams become realities in the process.

All because, well, she was determined to the trust process of what it takes to become a fixture in one America’s most popular and competitive industries.


DS-TEXAS’ OWN

“Winston Churchill stated that, ‘Success is the ability to go from one failure to another, with no loss of enthusiasm,’ said Price before backing up such an analogy with the familiar Biblical verse that is Philippians 4:6. “Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God.”

All things considered, coupled with the divine calling on her life, that’s just what Price has done — made her requests known unto God.

And left the results to Him.

Look at her today, having emerged as one of Texas’ most resourceful and efficient real estate brokers.

Houston author Philandis Stovall’s recalls loving memory of her son, who wrote a book before his untimely death


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


VICTORIOUS REGARDLESS 

MUSTARDSEED FAITH — Houston author Philandis Stovall wrote the emotionally-driven, tear-jerking written work entitled, “Even Through the Storm: A Mom’s Story of Faith Amid Adversity, an awe-inspiring project that garnered a wave of media coverage since its much-anticipated release in nearly two years ago.

DALLAS — To his credit, little “Ziggy” reached his destiny before God ceremoniously called him home.

“I received the confirmation for writing my book when I was in the hospital with my son while he was having his bone marrow transplantation,” Philandis Philly Stovall told Making Headline News during a weekend interview, recalling the memorable developments that unfolded in July 2017, during which her son, Fre’Derick Leontez Young Redd III, was hospitalized at Texas Children’s Hospital after being diagnosed with cancer.
The book to which Stovall is alluding is her emotionally-driven, tear-jerking written work entitled, “Even Through the Storm: A Mom’s Story of Faith Amid Adversity, an awe-inspiring project that garnered a wave of media coverage since its much-anticipated release in nearly two years ago.
A book that Stovall began composing sometime in September 2017 and needed approximately two weeks to complete, “Even Through the Storm: A Mom’s Story of Faith Admid Adversity” is a story of one mom’s journey from despair to triumph, according to detailed breakdown by Google Books.

A book that Stovall began composing sometime in September 2017 and needed approximately two weeks to complete, “Even Through the Storm: A Mom’s Story of Faith Admid Adversity” is a story of one mom’s journey from despair to triumph, according to detailed breakdown by Google Books.

In 2012, for instance, Stovall’s then four-year-old son was diagnosed with cancer. Consequently, she found herself in what she described as “a zone,” whereby all she wanted was peace and quiet.

In  no particular order.

“I was searching for sense in a situation that made no sense to me,” Stovall writes.

STAR POWER — Interestingly and much to Stovall’s delight, her book — as well as her son’s written work — has caught the attention of an array of athletes, including the Rice University football program the Houston Texans, as well as former NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal.

Interestingly, alone with her wave of thoughts and emotions, Stovall desperately wanted to “wake up” from what sense was a nightmare.

Still, the Greenville, Mississippi native demonstrated enough faith to stay awake, particularly in the spirit, considering she had come to grips with the notion that what was unfolding in her young life wasn’t merely a dream.

“This was reality and she was forced with the choice of retreating into the devastation or fighting her way through the storm,” said a Google Books spokesperson for Stovall’s “Even Through the Storm: A Mom’s Story of Faith Admid Adversity.’” “Finding herself on an unexpected and unwelcome path, the young mother could feel a rebirth happening. With each day and event, she found herself growing stronger and stronger.”

In 2012, for instance, Stovall’s then four-year-old son was diagnosed with cancer. Consequently, she found herself in what she described as “a zone,” where all she wanted was peace and quiet.

Even amid her son’s unlikely diagnosis — he wasn’t born with cancer – Stovall didn’t merely have time to cope; rather, she simply had to learn to deal with it, she’s explained time and again.

Regardless, because of her spiritually resourcefulness, Stovall’s story essentially is one whereby she had to learn of rely on her faith — the kind of faith that had ultimately given way to her exemplifying hope, particularly when that about which she encountered seemed hopeless.

But God…


“I knew from the beginning of our journey we had a purpose and reason for being assigned to go through cancer treatment,” said Stovall, when asked what was the single, most underlying reason she chose to produce “Even Through the Storm: A Mom’s Story of Faith Admid Adversity.” “My handsome son wasn’t born with cancer. He was born a completely healthy baby boy.”


Still, before his health had begun to decline, Stovall miraculously aided her son mightily to fulfill his God-manifested purpose, considering “Ziggy” surprisingly wrote his very own book while in the hospital before he passed away. The title: “The Mystery of the Missing Ring,” which was published earlier this year.

The title: “The Mystery of the Missing Ring,” which was published earlier this year.

Talk about a mother and child collectively devising ways to weather arguably the toughest of adversity.

“I have gotten overwhelmingly amazing reviews and feedback on my memoir, including five-star ratings,” Stovall said. “I was told prophetically I have a bestselling book and that’s what I believe.”

Interestingly and much to Stovall’s delight, her book — as well as her son’s written work — has caught the attention of an array of athletes, including the Rice University football program the Houston Texans, as well as former NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal.

Because of her spiritually resourcefulness, Stovall’s story essentially is one whereby she had to learn of rely on her faith — the kind of faith that had ultimately given way to her exemplifying hope, particularly when that about which she encountered seemed hopeless.

“This memoir shares a major part of my life and how I handled it being a single mother of two children with one being diagnosed with cancer,” said Stovall, adding “more personal book projects” are forthcoming much sooner than later. “I have been able to share my strengths, weaknesses, and faith in God words, no matter what the world says. I have been able to start and continue one of my passions, which is helping others with my nonprofit organization efforts.”

Surely, because of keen perseverance, “Ziggy” is peeping through the clouds above and giving his mom’s a well-deserved thumbs up.

Winners BBQ has been nothing short of remarkable since its 2015 Dallas/Fort Worth inception


“The highest human act is to inspire.”Late superstar rapper Nipsey Hussle


WINNER’S CIRCLE 

DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS — A former Iowa State football standout, DeAndre Jackson had ultimately delved off into the ever-so-competitive world of entrepreneurship as the proud founder of Winners BBQ, a family-owned restaurant that has established three franchises since its inception in 2015.

DUNCANVILLE, Texas — If there’s one thing that DeAndre Jackson has learned as a former athlete, it’s how to make good on a seemingly unfavorable situation.

Consider, for instance, how when Jackson’s bid to land on an NFL roster spot fell short amid a career-ending ACL injury, he diligently had become resourceful in that he miraculously found his niche, both as an athletic trainer and real estate agent.
Much to his delight, things for the Garland, Texas native would only get better.
A former Iowa State standout, Jackson had ultimately delved off into the ever-so-competitive world of entrepreneurship as the proud founder of Winners BBQ, a family-owned restaurant that has established three franchises since its inception in 2015.

https://m.facebook.com/winnersbbqaustin/

THEY ARE LIT — Winners BBQ, in fact, has become a fixture throughout North Texas, in large part because consumers have come to enjoy — and embrace — its delectable meat plates, meat by the pound, its assortment of sandwiches, not to mention its smoked turkey legs, as well as its distinctly unique meat loaded potato that’s famously deemed “The G.O.AT.”

Winners BBQ’s original location is housed at 3200 14th Street in nearby Plano. A popular Dallas/Fort Worth restaurant that Jackson owns along with his cousin, Tevin Jackson, Tevin’s wife, former University of Texas and professional track and field star Nichole Denby-Jackson, Winners BBQ has since added two locations — one in Cedar Hill and in Austin.

Following what the Jacksons described as “massive success” of the Plano location, DeAndre opened Winners BBQ Cedar Hill in 2017, and in less than three months ago, Nichole, Tevin, and Nichole’s sister, Nichale,  opened the Austin location. 

For DeAndre Jackson and Co., it’s been all good ever since.


RED ZONE EFFICIENCY 

To their credit, the Jacksons have gone to great lengths to form what has become an All-Star lineup of Winners BBQ CEOs.

“We pride ourselves on bringing flavorful craft BBQ with having a one-of-a-kind menu and delivering exceptional customer service,” Nichole Denby-Jackson told Making Headline News this week.

And then there are Winners BBQ’s mouth-watering sides and its kids menu, not to mention its sweet and tangy BBQ sauce and its flavor-packed dry rub, which takes all of its smoked meats to “another level of flavor,” DeAndre Jackson acknowledged.

Interestingly, Winners BBQ has earned mentions in a slew of food publications, trends that have given way to this star-studded restaurant chain having garnered a host of food awards and magazine honors.


“As high profile collegiate and professional athletes, we are highly competitive by nature and this competitiveness and drive spill over into every faucet of our lives,” DeAndre Jackson explained. “Sports is what we all have in common, and the discipline, dedication, perseverance, mental toughness, sacrifice, motivation, and determination that athletics have instilled in us has taught us very valuable life lessons and how to never quit, no matter what curve balls life throw your way.”


To their credit, the Jacksons have gone to great lengths to form what has become an All-Star lineup of Winners BBQ CEOs.

Surely, their competitive drive as former athletes has contributed mightily to their sustained entrepreneurship success.

For starters, DeAndre and Tevin Jackson, both were legitimate hopeful to land NFL contracts before injuries reduced their effectiveness, thus bringing their careers to unceremoniously ends.

ON A MISSION — As for the Jacksons’ mission for having delved off into entrepreneurship, what it all boils down, they said, is devising ways to leave a legacy for their children — and their children’s children.

Both, in fact, had sustained torn ACL’s, and were forced to tackle — and sack — what they label as the “real world” for the first time in a long time.

And then there was Nichole, a Los Angeles native, who was the catalyst of Texas’ track and field program that captured a national championship before she enjoyed a professional stint with Nike and Adidas that spanned a decade.

Interestingly, Nichole maintained a top-10 world ranking and represented the U. S. on its World Championship Team, as well as served as an alternate on the U. S. Olympic team.

“My personal mission is to be able to pass down something for my children to own and start them off at an even better place in life than I was,” Nichole said. “I would also love to use my platform to motivate and inspire others, whether that be on speaking panels, through a published book, public appearances, and various events or seminars.

“Another mission is to have enough financial freedom for me to give back to many communities through charitable acts of kindness and build water wells in certain parts of Africa for those without clean water,” Nichole added. “We are all big on philanthropy and are big advocates for our community.”

DeAndre and Tevin Jackon both were legitimate hopeful to land NFL contracts before injuries reduced their effectiveness, thus bringing their careers to unceremoniously end. Both, in fact, sustained torn ACL’s, and were both forced to tackle — and sack — the real world for the first time in a long time.

In addition, the Jacksons announced strategic plans to create what they call the “WINspiration Foundation,” an organization that would allow them to display their notable philanthropy efforts.

“Something that I learned from the late great Nipsey Hussle is that the highest human act is to inspire,” Nichole said. “If I can use my platform to reach at least one person — I would love to inspire many — I would be happy.”

Said DeAndre Jackson: “It is important to pass down knowledge and wisdom to better those around you and make them want to become the best versions of themselves and to be able to pass down and instill these things in the next generation which will pick up the baton as it will be their turn to run the world.”

Just as the Jacksons are presently doing as successful entrepreneurs — this after having made good on seemingly unfavorable situations.

Talk about true Winners.

Texas ‘Living Legend’ Bishop John Lewis Johnson to be honored for 60 years as Senior Pastor of Greater Progressive COGIC


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)


60 SHADES OF GRACE 

FORT WORTH, Texas — Bishop John Lewis Johnson.

Clearly, such a name ought to ring a bell, should have by now undoubtedly become a fixture throughout the historic Church of God In Christ, a religious-based organization that is widely regarded as the largest Pentecostal church and the fifth largest Christian church in the country.
To grasp a thorough concept of why Bishop Johnson should have garnered a well-respected, unprecedented presence in the national church at this stage in his ministerial tenure, look no further than his immeasurable, well-publicized track record as one of Texas’ oldest clergymen, who is the Senior Pastor of Greater Progressive Church of God In Christ in Fort Worth.
To his distinctly unique credit, Bishop Johnson’s pastoral career is nearing an unprecedented six decades, an awe-inspiring, unfathomable feat that will be commemorated during his 60th Pastoral celebration on Friday, June 7 at 7:30 p.m. CST at Dayspring Family Church, located at 618 North Belt Lane Road in nearby Irving.

TO GOD BE THE GLORY — To his distinctly unique credit, Bishop John Lewis Johnson’s pastoral career is nearing an unprecedented six decades, an awe-inspiring, unfathomable feat that will be commemorated during his 60th Pastoral celebration on Friday, June 7 at 7:30 p.m. CST at Dayspring Family Church, located at 618 North Belt Lane Road in nearby Irving.

A gallery that will be comprised of his membership, colleagues, family members, and a host of well-wishers will collectively engage in a celebratory praise and worship service, during which they will pay homage to 93-year-old Bishop Johnson, who has been the face of Greater Progressive COGIC dating back to May 23, 1959.

The service will be highlighted by a featured speaker, Superintendent Melton R. Timmons, the Senior Pastor of Jones Valley Community COGIC in Tyler, Texas.

Timmons serves as Secretary for COGIC’s National Board of Trustees.


THE CHURCH’S HIGHEST OFFICE 

All things considered, Bishop Johnson has surely earned the right to be celebrated for his exceptional body of work as one of God’s beloved spokesperson, one who has evolved as a beacon of light in his own right, particularly in the national church.

Having sold out completely to God on February 15, 1949 at the tender age of 23, it was within the walls of the very historic church he pastors that he surrendered his life to Christ.

A little more than a year later — April 26, 1950, to be technical — Bishop Johnson had graciously accepted his divine calling to preach the Gospel.

To his credit, he’s been on God’s battlefield ever since, considering his ministerial resume includes having served under the leadership of the late Elder D.C. Littlefield, during which he was the Greater Progressive COGIC’s Assistant Pastor for just shy of a decade.

Interestingly, Bishop Johnson was officially ordained as an Elder in 1959, a milestone that had ultimately given way to his ceremoniously appointment by the late Bishop F. L. Haynes as Senior Pastor of Greater Progressive on May 23, 1959 (he was installed by the late Bishop D. L. Smith).


Following a notable presence in the Texas Northeast First Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction — a stint that included having assumed roles as trustee and chairman of the Board of Superintendents, as well as a Program Planning Committee member — Bishop Johnson was promoted to Administrative Assistant to the Office of the Bishop on December 29, 1992. Consequently, he was consecrated as an Auxiliary Bishop by Presiding Bishop Charles Edward Blake Sr. during COGIC’s 109th National Holy Convocation on November 13, 2016.


Years before assuming his heavenly promotion to the highest office in the church, Bishop Johnson was the beneficiary of an honorary doctorate by Dallas’ Paul Quinn College on October 17, 1990.

Three years later, he was recognized by a host of delegates in the Fort Worth Community when he was deemed a “Living Legend.”

Bishop Johnson is the former husband to the late Mother Alma Katherine Johnson, a union that lasted 65 years before her demise.

Labeled a “gospel giant” by his peers and colleagues, Bishop Johnson’s unparalleled preaching tenure spans nearly seven decades, a stint that’s also accompanied by 49 years as a District Superintendent and 44 years as a Jurisdictional Administrative Assistant.


WELL DONE 

MASSIVE TRACK RECORD — All things considered, Bishop Johnson has undoubtedly earned the right to be celebrated for his exceptional body of work as one God’s beloved spokesperson, one who has evolved as a beacon of light in his own right, particularly in the national church.

A pastoral career that will reach 60 years as of May 23, Bishop Johnson currently serves as a Senior Advisor to Texas Northeast First Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction Prelate, Bishop J.E. Hornsby.

Clearly, such a name ought to ring a bell, should have undoubtedly become a fixture throughout the historic Church of God In Christ.

For 60 years…and counting.

Is Houston entrepreneur Katina Cansler the organizational services industry’s best kept secret?


Let all things be done decently and in order. (1 Corinthians 14:40 KJV)


KC’s TOUCH OF EXCELLENCE

TOUCH OF SUCCESS — Katina Cansler the proud owner and CEO of  KC’s Touch, her Houston-area organizational services, which exhibit an extensive background and expertise necessary to properly maintain and organize your property or facility.

DALLAS — Katina Cansler has what she refers to as her “new adventure,” one she doesn’t plan on shelving any time soon.

Heck, why should she demonstrate signs of slowing down any time soon as the proud owner and CEO of  KC’s Touch, her Houston-area organizational services, which exhibit an extensive background and expertise necessary to properly maintain and organize your property or facility.
Widely known for its “world class organizational services,” KC’s Touch’s system was created to ensure that its clients pay witness to a clean and healthy home.
“Our process revolves around you and your family to provide a unique cleaning process with the highest attention to detail,” said a spokesperson for KC’s Touch in a detailed overview of this business at http://www.kcstouch.com/index.html.

Not only that, KC’s Touch has established a keen reputation for routinely bringing about a customer-first focus atmosphere, coupled with what Cansler describes as “old-fashioned values” derived from character and integrity, not to mention an “all in service” of providing its clients with the highest level of professionalism they deserve.

Aside from overseeing the day-to-day operations of KC’s Touch, Cansler is longtime cosmetologist, whose career spans more than 30 years.

Currently, the Fort Wayne, Indiana native has been afforded the luxury working savoring the best of both worlds through her endeavors. But as she forthrightly explained during an interview this week with Making Headline News, KC’s Touch essentially has emerged as her first love, of sorts.

YOU’VE GOTTA SEE THIS!!!

A business that accommodates mostly individuals ranging in their mid-30’s and up, Cansler’s wealth of experience in organizational services has been put on display in a variety of places around the country, most notably Indiana, Arizona, Texas, Atlanta, North Carolina, among others.

As Canslers recalls, her rise to starting her featured business goes all the back to her childhood days in Indiana.

“Growing up, it was always mandatory to keep the house clean,” said Cansler, who relocated from Arizona to Texas in 2015. “We had to do chores, no questions about that. So as I got older I became OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder) with my children and everything had to be in place.”

Everything from the towels — “they had to be folded a certain way,” Cansler explained — to the floor which, according to this nuts-and-bolts businesswoman, had to be vacuumed “with the lines in the carpet,” she says without hesitation.

Not only that, KC’s Touch has established a keen reputation for routinely bringing about a customer-first focus atmosphere, coupled with what Cansler describes as “old-fashioned values” derived from character and integrity, not to mention an “all in service” of providing its clients with the highest level of professionalism they deserve.

Interestingly and to her credit, Cansler never imagined that her immeasurable gifts for ensuring that things stay squeaky clean would ultimately blossom into a full fledge business.

“I always cleaned for friends and family and would have never considered it to be a business,” Cansler said. “Anyway, fast forwarding up to date…when I moved to Houston my daughter, Breanna, came out her bedroom and said, ‘Mom, my closet need KC’s Touch.’”

THAT’S NOT ALL SHE DOES — A entrepreneurial tenure that also include her functioning as an event and party planner, Cansler is presently enrolled at Houston Community College, where she’s pursuing an Associate of Arts Degree in Communications with an emphasis in Interior Designing.

And from that point on, Cansler explained, such a memory essentially marked the beginning of her organizational services, which have been in full operations for a little more than a decade.

How time flies when you’re having fun, doing what you love — a trend to which Cansler can greatly attest.

“It was at that moment a light come on in my head,” said Cansler, recalling her exchange with her daughter, which gave way to the very name of her business. “I loved the way it sounded and then I started with the business.”

Aside from overseeing the day-to-day operations of KC’s Touch, Cansler is longtime cosmetologist, whose career spans more than 30 years.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

“What I hadn’t realized is that I had (been engaging in) these services for years without ever giving it any thought…going to people’s homes and cleaning up bedrooms, bathrooms, and closets, just to name a few,” Cansler said. “There is a great need for my services, but some people are embarrassed to invite someone into their home and help them get organized, because it’s totally different from house-cleaning, which we offer those services as well.”

Currently, the Fort Wayne, Indiana native has been afforded the luxury working savoring the best of both worlds through her endeavors. But as she forthrightly explained during an interview this week with Making Headline News, KC’s Touch essentially has emerged as her first love, of sorts.

A entrepreneurial tenure that also include her functioning as an event and party planner, Cansler is presently enrolled at Houston Community College, where she’s pursuing an Associate of Arts Degree in Communications with an emphasis in Interior Designing.

For what it’s worth, she said her profession as the face of KC’s Touch gives her the golden opportunity to meet people from various walks of life, during which she customarily deems it essential to pass along some much-needed words of encouragement while doing what she’s loves the most.

A business that accommodates mostly individuals ranging in their mid-30’s and up, Cansler’s wealth of experience in organizational services has been put on display in a variety of places around the country, most notably Indiana, Arizona, Texas, Atlanta, North Carolina, among others.

“My desire is to help people get organized by implementing daily tasks,” said Cansler, who also announced the forthcoming release of her new book that’s scheduled to hit the market in late summer. “God has commissioned to be a beacon (of light) in the community…to give hope, to inspire, and encourage others.”

IN HER OWN WORDS — “I always cleaned for friends and family and would have never considered it to be a business,” Cansler said. “Anyway, fast forwarding up to date…when I moved to Houston my daughter, Breanna, came out her bedroom and said, ‘Mom, my closet need KC’s Touch.’”

Oh…and let’s not forget: to keep things clean.

Er…squeaky clean.

“I absolutely love helping people achieve and strive to their highest potential,” Cansler said. “Therefore, if someone needs some assistance with getting their homes in order, I would be happy to. A well-organized home promotes a healthy life and decreases depression and anxiety.”

She would undoubtedly know.

Her immeasurable track record speaks for itself.

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…

Delaware couple Daniel and Jessica Miller revitalize a credible private transportation service that’s a fixture in Texas


And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28 KJV)


Jessica Miller doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s overwhelmingly grateful to God for bestowing upon her an array of blessings.

Amongst those who highlights her grandest of blessings: her newlywed husband, Daniel Miller.

Having exchanged nuptials on November 10, 2018, amongst the Millers’ notable achievements is continuing a credible business venture that Jessica Miller started some three-and-a-half years ago in Humble, Texas.


SEASON OF THE REBIRTH 

IN GOD’S TIMING — A couple who resides in Newark, Delaware, Daniel and Jessica Miller are co-owners of Happy Hands & Feet Transportation. A business that went into full operations in Summer 2015, Happy Hands & Feet Transportation is geared largely toward providing safe transportation service for children at a reasonably affordable rate.

A couple who resides in Newark, Delaware, Daniel and Jessica Miller are co-owners of Happy Hands & Feet Transportation.

A business that went into full operations in Summer 2015, Happy Hands & Feet Transportation is geared largely toward providing safe transportation service for children at a reasonably affordable rate.

A distinctly unique business that is nearing its fourth year of existence, Jessica Miller acknowledged that Happy Hands & Feet Transportation is extremely ideal, considering it allows her the keen flexibility, particularly as it relates to attending church regularly and spending quality time with family.

Especially now that she’s a newlywed.


DELAWARE STATE OF MIND  

FAMILY FOCUS — By and large, it is due in large to love and support Jessica Miller routinely exemplifies for her family that has fueled her fervent desire to start a transportation business that figures to have similar success in Delaware.

“This is very special, because I left Texas for the first time in life while flying for the first time,” said Jessica Miller, explaining the exciting developments leading to her marriage to Daniel in early November. “And (then I) got married to a wonderful man of God, who’s from Philadelphia.”


Together, not only has this couple — whom, prior to tying the knot, had been separated by 1,518 miles — formed a solid, Christian-based union, but their unyielding love has inspired them to collectively establish what could appropriately be dubbed Happy Hands (North) now that a second location is in operations.

SOLID SUPPORT — Interestingly, now that she’s been blessed to marry a big-hearted, godly man who understands the importance of loving his wife as Christ loves the church, it’s safe to assume Happy Hands — North — best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

The Millers, by all accounts, are especially giddy to have relaunched Happy Hands in Delaware, considering Jessica Miller had built a solid clientele in her native establishment, during which she customarily provided services for over 70 families in Texas.

“It’s my passion,” said Jessica Miller, summing up her excitement for the second location of her the family business.


WHERE IT ALL STARTED 

DOING IT GOD’S WAY — The Millers, by all accounts, are especially giddy to have relaunched Happy Hands in Delaware, considering Jessica Miller had built a solid clientele in her native establishment when she customarily provided services for over 70 families in Texas.

More than anything, though, Jessica Miller said a transportation business of this nature is ideal, in large part because it provides what she describes as safe and dependable door-to-door pick up and drop off transportation services.

TREND SETTER — A distinctly unique business that is nearing its fourth year of existence, Miller acknowledged that Happy Hands & Feet Transportation is extremely ideal, considering it allows her the keen flexibility, particularly as it relates to attending church regularly and spending quality time with family.

In addition, Jessica Miller credits the founder of JMD Transportation, LLC, as well as It’s On The Way Delivery Services as other local businesses in Texas that have greatly helped enable her to fulfill her entrepreneurship endeavors.

“God gave us all purpose and gifts in our life, especially to help one another,” Jessica Miller told Making Headline News during a March 2018 interview.

By and large, it is due in large to love and support she routinely exemplifies for her family that has fueled her fervent desire to start a transportation business, one that figures to have similar success in Delaware.

ALL LOCKED IN — More than anything, though, Jessica Miller said a transportation business of this nature is ideal, in large part because it provides what she describes as safe and dependable door-to-door pick up and drop off transportation services.

“Having 16 grandchildren, whom had to walk to a school (on a number of) occasions, I don’t want children walking to school,” said Jessica Miller, whose venture accommodates children from pre-kindergarten to high school. “(I love) seeing the smiles on little ones’ faces.”

Interestingly, now that she’s been blessed to marry a big-hearted, godly man who understands the importance of loving his wife as Christ loves the church, it’s safe to assume that Happy Hands — er, North — best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

IN THE NEWS — “God gave us all purpose and gifts in our life, especially to help one another,” Jessica Miller told Making Headline News during a March 2018 interview.

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose,” Jessica Miller, reciting the familiar Biblical passage that is housed in Romans 8:28, said during a March 2018 with MHN.

Because after all, Jessica Miller doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s overwhelmingly grateful to God for bestowing upon her an array of blessings.

Amongst those who highlights her grandest of blessings: her newlywed husband, Daniel — whom, much to her delight, just happens to be her most-celebrated business partner.

Texas Gospel Music Excellence Awards to take place February 14-17 from Houston

 


And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 5:23 KJV)


DALLAS — Gospel artists around the country will be afforded the golden opportunity to acquire the exposure they so desperately seek during the upcoming Texas Gospel Music Excellence Awards.

A three-day event that will take place February 14-17 at Houston’s  Marriott Hotel Hobby Airport — located at 9100 Gulf Freeway — the TGMEA will is annual event that is centered largely on providing a platform for new gospel artists, most notably those who aspire to move up the ranks of the music industry, a spokesperson told Making Headline News this week.


IT’S ALL ABOUT KING JESUS 

DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS — Gospel artists around the country will be afforded the golden opportunity to acquire the exposure they so desperately seek during the upcoming Texas Gospel Music Excellence Awards.

In addition to an event that has been in existence for a little more than two decades, artists and aspiring artists will have the chance to grasp a thorough overview of what  TGMEA organizers have labeled the “vehicle of education and networking opportunities.”

“These efforts have assisted in the springboard of many of gospel artists in the past, providing a face-to-face experience with other artists, promoters, producers, and media (personalities),” said a spokesperson for the TGMEA.


MORE ON THE TGMEA: https://www.facebook.com/events/2177642512456944/

Powered by the Excellence Awards nonprofit organization, the theme that organizers have adopted during the 2019 TGMEA is: Focusing On The Total Person: Mind, Body, And Soul,” a featured slogan that is accompanied by the familiar Biblical passage that is 1 Thessalonians 5:23.

As usual, the TGMEA is being organized by a host of individuals, most notably its Co-Founders, Pastor Larry Davies and his wife, First Lady Sharon Davies.

The TGMEA is available to gospel artists nationwide, event organizers emphasized.

“Attending this event will afford the new artists some exposure and knowledge of how the industry operates, what it takes to become successful, and to learn the language of the industry,” said a spokesperson for the TGMEA. “Due to the fact that in this new age of gospel music, the changes in the industry are ever so changing. But if any new artists are determined that this is the way they want to go, attending this event will be a help.

“Including awarding these artists for their creativity and hard work in gospel ministry as an independent artist, we have a chance to exhibit our appreciation via the gospel community.”

Interestingly, organizers said artists in attendance will have an opportunity to have their music projects serviced by what is known as its “servicing area,” during which they will pass their respective projects to various radio stations and media personnel on hand for the TGMEA.


“Of course, if the up-and-coming artists perform on any of the events scheduled during the event, (they will be afforded the opportunity) to be heard and identified amongst their constituents and other media affiliates,” said a spokesperson for the TGMEA.


And, just like in years’ past, the TGMEA will include its customary Morning Glory worship to commence each day of the three-day event, as well as a Gospel Music Industry Educational Workshop, Praise and Worship Workshop, Praise Dance Workshop, and a Women of Excellence Forum and Book Release (brunch tickets are $35.00).


GOD’S LEADING LADY 

Also, there will be a Preachers and Ministers Forum, and Ambassadors Annual Meeting, a Valentine’s Day Late Night Soiree (which is $35.00 per couple), a Late Night New Artist Showcase, and the TGMEA finale that is known as CHOIRMANIA.

“We encourage everyone to come witness the various ministries and anointed talents of our delegates,” said a spokesperson for the TGMEA.

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.
