Florida author Shemeka L. McNair’s choosing to ‘wait on God’ has resulted in her gifts making room for her

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND 2019 SPECIAL REPORT


Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. (Psalm 27:14 KJV)


WAITING FOR GOD’S APPROVAL 

TRUSTING THE PROCESS — Florida author Shemeka McNair’s featured written work is entitled, “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” a 170-page project that jumpstarted her authorship debut when it was ceremoniously released in 2016.

Just before midday EST on Saturday, Shemeka L. McNair took to her Facebook page, where she staged before her social media followers a rather forthright and riveting post that essentially had come wrapped up in a self-declaration, of sorts.

Said McNair in on her timelime:
This year, I will shake hands with million dollar investors. They will fund my vision in its entirety. Then I will become a millionaire and I will shake hands with people like me and I will fund their vision. Not only will I soon be a millionaire I will produce other millionaires for the Glory of God! I walk in this type of favor!! I am anointed for this.
Talk about shooting her spiritual shot. Talk about keeping it 100.
Talk about some making an emphatic, dauntless, in-your-face profession, one that figures to change not just the life of McNair but, most importantly, virtually an entire generation.
If, by chance, God deems it essential to bring that about which McNair has publicly declared to fruition, in all likelihood, she’ll be exchanging pleasantries with millionaires, who will surely express interest in her gallery of books.

One in particular is McNair’s featured written work entitled, “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” the 170-page project that jumpstarted her authorship debut when it was ceremoniously released in 2016.

“I wrote the book, because I was single for so long time and, at a certain point in my wait, I became tired of waiting and begin to make really (ill-advised) choices in men,” McNair, a native of Magee, Mississippi, told Making Headline News this week. “I lowered — basically got rid of — all of the standards I had and I just started to go with the flow of the dating scene. I bumped my head and had my heart broken so many times, I lost count.”

As McNair vividly explained, it wasn’t until God had her strategically confined inside of her vehicle that greatly enabled her to — for a lack of better words — see a light bulb moment, particularly it relates to her unfavorable decision-making in dating.


“One night, in the year 2011, I was sitting in the car, crying over a relationship and I begin to ask God, ‘Why is this happening to me? Why does this keep happening to me?’” — Florida Author Shemeka McNair 


As she consequently found out, God — His usual reliable Self — had provided her with some much-needed sense of direction.

“I heard a Voice say, ‘Write about it,’” McNair explained. “What type of response is that? I’m crying and You tell me to write about it. As time passed, I begin to journal about whatever I was going through in the relationships and courtships.”

LISTEN UP — As for the divine message she’s sending to her audience through “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” McNair said, “If you can wait, you can have whatever it is you want. When we rush we have everything we don’t want…like the wrong partner, toxic relationships, and situations we should have never been a part of. We all have a due season. We just have to enjoy, not despise our wait, because it will always be worth the wait.”

And before she knew it, she was on path to assuming the role of an author, a trend that has given way to this Orlando-based writer and businesswoman assembling three additional books, one of which is presently in the works and about to be headed for the printer.

Aside from an “Impatiently Waiting” book that has caught the attention of actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, who’s famously known for her childhood role as Rudy Huxtable in the classic NBC sitcom, “The Cosby Show,” McNair also authored:

“Behind the Scenes Of Success,” which was released in December 2017, or approximately 10 months after the first one. Then in January 2019, she published “On the Road To Recovery.”

As McNair can boldly admit today, she’s grateful to God for having assigned her to speak along such a thought-provoking, spiritually-empowering topic for such a time as now.

McNair’s “Behind the Scenes Of Success” was released in December 2017, or approximately 10 months after her first book.

“Many people have said to me that I will write books, but I didn’t know how or where to start,” McNair said. “So I just started to write down what I thought I should be writing until one day in 2015, I was visiting a church and the pastor asked me to stand and he said to me, ‘I see you journaling. I see you are writing a lot.’”

Surely, such a public prophesy essentially was God speaking to McNair through one of His spokespersons.

McNair’s “On the Road To Recovery” debuted in January of this year.

To her credit, it’s a good thing she took heed to that which God revealed to her.

Continued the Pastor: “God said for you to hurry up and write the book and he will send the finances.”

STAR POWER — McNair’s “Impatiently Waiting”has caught the attention of actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, who’s famously known for her childhood role as Rudy Huxtable in the classic NBC sitcom, “The Cosby Show.”

And just like that, McNair’s authorship tenure was officially underway, an awe-inspiring development that given way to four books — and counting.

“That put a fire under me and I was trying to write, but didn’t know what I should be writing,” McNair said.

Once she had finally found her niche as an accomplished author, God, in turn, had provided the increase.

GLIMPSE OF GOD’S GLORY — If, by chance, God deems it essential to bring that about which McNair has publicly declared to fruition, in all likelihood, she’ll be exchanging pleasantries with millionaires, who will surely express interest in her gallery of books.

“I have received great feedback from everyone,” McNair said of her assortments, especially the first one. “They feel the book is real and relatable. Even men have said the book was a great read.”

Chances are, those millionaires with whom she will eventually cross paths will share the same sentiments.

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.

Dallas/Fort Worth author Chrystal Castillo witnesses a glimpse of God’s glory through her new book


We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. (Romans 15:1 KJV)


AFFIRMATION OF FAITH 

PURPOSED FOR PAIN — A book that was officially released in early-May, Dallas/Fort Worth-author Chrystal D. Castillio spent the past couple of years assembling a book she admittedly wrote during what was a was “a very difficult season” of her life.

LEWISVILLE, Texas — Chrystal Castillo is certainly one of a kind, is surely a unique, godly woman in her own right.

Consider, for instance, how Castillo is appropriately described in her brief bio on her personal website.

As mentioned at https://www.chryscastillo.com/, Castillo has been widely deemed a “catalyst,” or someone who doesn’t blend in with cultures or trends, but aims to cause reactions in environments that would change the conditions of the energy, mindsets, and lifestyles of those around her.

How befitting for a Christian-based author, who also doesn’t shy away from the notion that it is because of the abundant life that Christ came to give us that will, in turn, provide us with the spiritual — and natural — affirmation we need to possess and savor a victorious life.

ROUND OF APPLAUSE — Castillo’s readers, meanwhile, are grateful of the notion that she obeyed God’s Voice and elected to write “Affirmed,” which is already generating favorable reviews.

“It is the Word of God that affirms us,” Castillo told Making Headline News this week.

Given such an intriguing and thought-provoking analogy undoubtedly rings true, according to this accomplished writer, that practically sums up why she thought it necessary to compose the book, entitled, “Affirmed,” a spiritually-empowering project that is just a few weeks removed from its much-anticipated release.


“When we know His truth, we can speak to the noises of our fears, insecurities,  lies, idols, etc.,” said Castillo, explaining her divine purpose for writing a book that has resulted in her making her authorship debut. “Speaking His truth over those noises shatters the voice, the power, and effectiveness of the sound that we hear.”


A book that was officially released in early-May, Castillio spent the past couple of years assembling a book she admittedly wrote during what was a was “a very difficult season” of her life.

But God…Who has the power to affirm us throughout His matchless, life-changing Word, a God Who had ultimately provided this devout woman of faith with some much-needed spiritual relief, particularly during her time in the wilderness.

“A lady at my church would speak life to me every Sunday morning,” said Castillo, recalling the awe-inspiring events that greatly fueled her desire to write her new book. “She was speaking God’s word over my life.”

Ironically and much to Castillo’s delight, such a weekly trend would ultimately inspire her to steadfastly speak life over her seemingly unfavorable situations.

“At one point, I decided to start study God’s word and speak over my own life,” Castillo, a native of Tulsa, Oklahoma, said. “God took me through a season of learning how the word affirms us. The lady at church was affirming with the truth of God’s word and didn’t even realize that she was helping me silence the noise I was hearing.”

So what exactly was the adversary saying to this Christian-oriented author?

“(He was saying) you’re not a great mom….you’re not enough,” Castillo recalled. “Every Sunday, she would tell me an affirmation and it helped me keep pressing.”

And, to her credit, such affirmations had eventually given way to her birthing “Affirmed,” a book she emphasized was created as strategic way to inspire others through the illustration of God’s Word, most notably through writing.

“I love analogies, and in my book, I use them to illustrate God’s Word,” Castillo’s said. “It is clear to me that God has gifted me in this way. I enjoy seeing other people inspired, encouraged, and empowered through the Word of God.”

Castillo’s readers, meanwhile, are grateful of the notion that she obeyed God’s Voice and elected to write “Affirmed,” which is already generating favorable reviews.

“So far, I have had people tell me that they now understand how to speak back to the noise, using the Word of God,” said Castillo, adding that “Affirmed” will be comprised of a three-part series and that plans are in the works to co-author a devotional book with her husband (Orlando Castillo).

Also, Castillo acknowledged that she’s open to accepting speaking engagements, during which she would discuss at length her book and, most importantly, encourage the masses in the process.

IN HER OWN WORDS —– “I love analogies, and in my book, I use them to illustrate God’s Word,” Castillo’s said. “It is clear to me that God has gifted me in this way. I enjoy seeing other people inspired, encouraged, and empowered through the Word of God.”

Just like that big-hearted fellow church member had done for her.

All things considered, Castillo has deemed it essential to count her blessings daily — to re-affirm that which God has blessed her.

“I am married with two handsome boys,” Castillo said. “I serve on the prayer team for woman’s ministry at my church (One Community Church). I enjoy working on freelance writing projects. I am also very passionate about encouraging other authors to push through their writing journey.”

All of which explains why she’s certainly one of a kind, is surely a unique, godly woman in her own right.

Michigan Pastor Michael C. Robinson conquers prison life by selling out to Jesus, he writes in “My Father’s Blood”


The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9 KJV)


THE BLOOD STILL WORKS! 

ON GOD’S BATTLEFIELD — Michigan Pastor Michael C. Robinson authored “My Father’s Blood,” a written work that depicts what Robinson appropriately labels as “His father’s blood,” an intriguingly symbolic concept that taught him, among other things, what it meant to be a “real man,” or, as this writer says, a “fearless, cool hustler.”

For Michael C. Robinson, the slew of transgressions he’s encountered in his life are just where they belong.

Under the Blood.

How else to explain his progressive, thriving ministry as an accomplished Ypsilanti, Michigan-area Pastor, one that simultaneously has given way to Robinson having delved off into the ever-so-competitive world of authorship.

“God gave me the vision to write this book,” Robinson told Making Headline News this week.

The book to which this devout man of the cloth is alluding is his spiritually and emotionally-driven project entitled, “My Father’s Blood,” a written work that depicts what Robinson appropriately labels as “His Father’s Blood,” an intriguingly symbolic concept that taught him, among other things, what it meant to be a “real man,” or, as this writer says, a “fearless, cool hustler.”

“It’s a two part answer,” Robinson, the Senior Pastor of Ypsilanti Community Church, said of his “My Father’s Blood.”

A book that took 244 pages to complete, Robinson’s “My Father’s Blood” delves into one man’s pursuit of recognition and approval in the wrong places, during which he ultimately discovers that it is available through the Father, Who paid the ultimate price through the shed blood of Jesus.

In a nutshell, Robinson’s “My Father’s Blood” is an awe-inspiring story that is centered largely on what this preacher-turned-writer describes as “rejection to redemption.”

In that particular order.

“When I was in penitentiary, I developed the desire to write a book,” Robinson explained. “I would then write notes, always trying to figure out how I got there.”

A book that took 244 pages to complete, Robinson’s “My Father’s Blood” delves into one man’s pursuit of recognition and approval in the wrong places, during which he ultimately discovers that it is available through the Father, Who paid the ultimate price through the shed blood of Jesus.

Still, amongst the notable, life-changing factors Robinson had discovered was that even in his mess, even when the enemy attempted time and again to render unto a death sentence, it was Jesus Christ, Who there all the time.

“A prophet prophesied to me that I would write a book about my life,” said Robinson, explaining a memorable development that unfolded in 1999.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Not only did Robinson steadfastly obey the God’s Voice by composing a book whereby he recalls his fervent desire to be accepted by his father, thus testing the limits and mimicking his older brother’s unsatisfactory behavior, but he testifies in great detail of how the dreaded street life catapulted him into consequences he could no longer escape.

All things considered, there was nail-scarred-hands Jesus, Who eventually provided His beloved spokesperson with a much-needed way of escape amid a hard knock life that could have very well sent him to a premature grave.


“The reason I chose to write this book is because God spoke to me and told me that I have a story of hardship and pain, and ups and downs that I can talk (about) to some young person, and within 20 minutes,  (I could) convince him to shift his mindset so he will not experience what I did in life. If I didn’t write this book about the life, I would have lived in vain.” — Pastor Michael C. Robinson


Robinson would be the first to admit that he wasn’t merely about to journey through life, living in vain and aborting the golden opportunity to fulfill the purpose for which he was created, especially considering he knew full well he was God’s investment to the kingdom.

COVERED BY THE BLOOD — Amongst the notable, life-changing factors Robinson had discovered was that even in his mess, even when the enemy attempted time and again to render unto a death sentence, it was Jesus Christ, Who there all the time.

“The divine message (to my reading audience) is the Blood of Jesus has the power to redeem anyone who has been lost, because I was the Prodigal Son,” Robinson said. “His Blood has the power to reach the lost by any means necessary. Regardless how difficult the case may be, His blood still has power to save.”

Amen. That’ll preach.

As for the feedback he’s garnered since the release of “My Father’s Blood,” Robinson deemed it essential to share a brief, yet tear-jerking story.

BOUGHT WITH A PRICE 

Robinson would be the first to admit that he wasn’t merely about to journey through life, living in vain and aborting the golden opportunity to fulfill the purpose for which he was created, especially considering he knew full well he was God’s investment to the kingdom.

“A guy from New York who had just been released from prison after serving over 20 years didn’t see an opportunity outside of selling drugs and considered going back (to the street life),” Robinson explained. “He read my book and he decided that he couldn’t go back, because he saw that there is hope through my testimony. Many others have testified that it’s a real good read and a (constant) page turner. I truly lay it all out. It’s real, raw and relatable.”

Arguably the biggest reason for that is because…well..the blood still works!

Detroit author Shontel Jackson’s new book offers a slew of prayers — on purpose


Then Jesus told His disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. (Luke 18:1 NIV)


‘CALL HIM UP’

DESTINY STEPS — A native of Lexington, Kentucky, Shontel Jackson is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Purposed Prayers: Praying On Purpose With A Purpose,” a spiritually-renewal and life-enhancing project that is scheduled to be released in mid-June, the beloved prophetess announced to her social media audience.

Shontel Jackson can be appropriately described as a prayer warrior.

On purpose.

Perhaps she could explain it better.

“I hold a weekly Facebook Live (session during which) that I pray the prayers in the book on the live,” Jackson, a longtime Detroit-area minister, told Making Headline News this week. “I have seen so many people push in through prayer. People have been testifying that they have received unexpected finances showing up in their bank accounts, new cars, family restoration, and also a lady who attempted suicide and survived.”

All things considered, it is due in large part to Jackson’s quest to advance the kingdom mightily through fervent prayers that has greatly fueled her desire to compose a book that centers largely on the importance as to why God commands us to establish an open line of communication with Him.

KINGDOM BLESSINGS — Now with “Purposed Prayers: Praying On Purpose With A Purpose” set to make its ceremoniously release, Jackson has announced that other written works are on the horizon.

A native of Lexington, Kentucky, Jackson is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Purposed Prayers: Praying On Purpose With A Purpose,” a spiritually-renewal and life-enhancing project that is scheduled to be released in mid-June, the beloved prophetess announced to her social media audience.

A book she needed somewhere in the neighborhood of four years to assembled — she began writing it in the summer of 2015 and put the wraps on it approximately two months ago — Jackson elected to write her first book during what she described as “a very dark time” in her life, a sequence that was mired by a dreaded failed relationship, coupled with a the sudden demise of a loved one.

Fortunately for Jackson, whose regular Facebook live prayer footages have become a fixture amongst her gallery of social media followers, prayer essentially is what has emerged as the pivotal factor that has increased her faith considerably, thus greatly enabled her to press and navigate her way through arguably the darkest season of her life.

“I went through a divorce and my grandmother, who raised me, passed away,” said Jackson, explaining the events surrounding her God-mandated assignment to write her book. “My world was turned upside down. At this time, I was thrust into a lifestyle of prayer.”

Fortunately for Jackson, whose regular Facebook live prayer footages have become a fixture amongst her gallery of social media followers, prayer essentially is what has emerged as the pivotal factor that has increased her faith considerably, thus greatly enabled her to press and navigate her way through arguably the darkest season of her life.

On purpose.


“This book teaches us to pray with strategy and purpose,” said Jackson, when asked what is the divine message she’s sending to her reading audience through her book. “It’s also a reminder to pray the word and (to know) that there is a solution to the problem in the Word of God. Each prayer targets life’s circumstances that we deal with daily, but as we know prayer changes things.”


By and large and much to her delight, Jackson doesn’t shy away from the notion that her soon-to-be-released book aligns with the purpose — and calling — for which God has created her.

“Prayer is my purpose and I believe this book — even though it was birthed out of a very painful time in my life — wasn’t about me,” said Jackson, who will promote her book during the upcoming Cruising The Write Way Authors Cruise from November 22 to 25. “It is about the ones that come after me, who will one day need this book to teach them on how to pray and push through no matter what.”

ON GOD’S BATTLEFIELD — A book she needed somewhere in the neighborhood of four years to assembled — she began writing it in the summer of 2015 and put the wraps on it approximately two months ago — Jackson elected to write her first book during what she described as “a very dark time” in her life, a sequence that was mired by a dreaded failed relationship, coupled with a the sudden demise of a loved one.

Just like that lady, whom Jackson recalls had attempted suicide only to survive.

Talk about a massive move of God — on purpose.

“This same lady that God didn’t allow the enemy to take out prematurely had turned around and received an unexpected financial miracle,” Jackson explained. “So many others and to many to name (she said with a smile. I know there’s so much more to come.”

Now with “Purposed Prayers: Praying On Purpose With A Purpose” set to make its ceremoniously release, Jackson has announced that other written works are on the horizon.


SEASON OF THE REBIRTH 

By and large and much to her delight, Jackson doesn’t shy away from the notion that her soon-to-be-released book aligns with the purpose — and calling — for which God has created her.

“I plan to write at least two more books within the next year,” said Jackson, alluding to project — “You Have Such A Pretty Face: Overcoming The Spirit of Rejection” and “Ishamael Was Blessed Too” —

— that will depict her life, during which she dealt with sexual and emotional abuse and rejection, as well as blended families, respectively.

“I am enjoying being an author.”

Houston-area author Aisha Nauling’s “Awake” has quickly become a No. 1 international bestseller


Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, 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)


ALL IN GOD’S PLANS 

DREAMS UNFOLDING — Aisha Nauling has gone to great lengths to ensure that her newly-produced book entitled, “Awake,” would be an awe-inspiring written document that would become a fixture not just in the states, but globally.Mission accomplished.

DALLAS — If there’s one thing that Aisha Nauling is convinced of, it is this:

Her labour isn’t merely vain in the Lord.

Consider, for instance, how during a recent interview with Making Headline News, Nauling recalled vividly how God has strategically allowed doors to open on her behalf, most notably through the competitive world of authorship.
“This was an obedience move for me,” Nauling explained. “I knew I was supposed to write a book but had great fear. (Greensboro, North Carolina businesswoman) Leslie Wright invites me to be a part of the book Anthology.”

To her credit, Nauling has gone to great lengths to ensure that her newly-produced book entitled, “Awake,” would be an awe-inspiring written document that would become a fixture not just in the states, but globally.

Mission accomplished.

That’s because much to the delight of this Houston, Texas-area author, “Awake” has emerged as a No. 1 International Bestseller, particularly in the United Kingdom.

That, to Nauling’s credit, is a massive testament that implies, among other things, her labour isn’t merely in vain.

“I refused to let fear or doubt be a reason for me to tell God He didn’t get it right,” said Nauling, explaining her primary reason for composing “Awake.”

A book that Nauling commenced to writing sometime this past winter — “shortly after revamping my credit repair business and launching my shirt line,” she said — “Awake” has been nothing short of remarkable since its much-anticipated release.

And, because Nauling’s published collection of poems and other writings in this book have grasped the attention of an international audience, it’s safe to assume that her best and brightest days as a rising author are well ahead of her.


“It’s an anthology of stories about the epiphany that you can construct and have the life of your dreams,” said Nauling, explaining the divine purpose for her book. “Women (should) go back to capture the moment and document their now. I have been chosen to bring hope to others by sharing my testimony and Godly wisdom on how to gain momentum to live the life God has called them to by living mine out loud.”


HEAVENLY MILESTONE — Nauling’s “Awake” has emerged as a No. 1 International Bestseller, particularly in the United Kingdom.

Interestingly for Nauling, she described the ongoing feedback since the release of “Awaken” as “going bananas,” meaning there has been a constant favorable buzz surrounding her new book.

“(It has) already hit bestseller in the U.S. and U.K.,” Nauling said in wonderment.

All of which practically sums up why other books undoubtedly are in the works, Nauling has announced.

A book that Nauling commenced to writing sometime this past winter — “shortly after revamping my credit repair business and launching my shirt line,” she said — “Awake” has been nothing short of remarkable since its much-anticipated release.

A native of Los Angeles who relocated to the Houston-area seven years ago, Nauling is widely known also as a Certified Momentum Life Coach, as well as the mastermind behind Komplete Xpertise, her financial services institution she co-founded with her husband in 2012.

In addition, Nauling said she’s presently open to speaking engagements to share of her slew of life-empowering testimonies, as well as help advance the kingdom through her assortment of endeavors.

“I do plan to speak to a local congregation in the near future,” Nauling said. “I am ready for more. No hiding back in the season…all purpose.”

A native of Los Angeles who relocated to the Houston-area seven years ago, Nauling is widely known also as a Certified Momentum Life Coach and the mastermind behind Komplete Xpertise, her financial services institution she co-founded with her husband in 2012.

A mother a five — “my husband gave to bonus babies,” Nauling jokingly said — this Texas author and businesswoman is overwhelmingly giddy of the fact that God has strategically set her aside for His use for such a pivotal time as now.

“(I’m) serving faithful in a bold way the kingdom of God,” Nauling said. “Running my own faith-inspired financial consulting business — “credit is queen” — and now adding author. God is faithful.”

Indeed He is, especially when you’ve been strategically set aside for His use, as this accomplished progressive, thriving Texas businesswoman-turned-author can greatly attest.

Houston author Brandi Ashford writes a spiritually-empowering book for such a pivotal time as now


If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. (James 1:5 NIV)


FREEDOM OF EXCELLENCE 

STAYING IN FAITH — A native of Houston, Prophetess Brandi Ashford has appropriately accepted and embraced yet another God-mandated assignment, most notably as the mastermind behind the newly-released book entitled, “Keys to Freedom 30 Day Enlightenment and Morning Glory.”

DALLAS — A couple of hours before midday CST on Friday, Prophetess Brandi Ashford took to her Facebook page, where she staged to her timeline a rather absorbing, yet familiar post.

Said Ashford before her 2,600-plus social media followers: Never let someone’s negative opinion become your reality.
For Ashford, such a prevalent catchphrase, to her credit, has become a personal theme, of sorts, especially for a devout woman of faith, who has become widely known as “The Fireball.”
Because truth be told, Ashford’s keen reputation is such that she not only hasn’t merely allowed the negative perceptions of others distract or deter her from her God-orchestrated purpose. But most importantly, she goes to great lengths to ensure that she will continue to bask in the glory of walking in the divine purpose for which she was created.

Widely dubbed, “a power packed 30-day devotional written to shift your life,” Ashford’s “Keys to Freedom: 30 Day Enlightenment and Morning Glory” is extremely essential for such a pivotal time as now, for such a time that, according to various Biblical scholars, has been widely regarded as “these last and evil days” or “the last of the last and evil days.”

Consider, for instance, Ashford’s awe-inspiring vision through the ever-so-competitive world of authorship.

Widely dubbed, “a power packed 30-day devotional written to shift your life,” Ashford’s “Keys to Freedom: 30 Day Enlightenment and Morning Glory” is extremely essential for such a pivotal time as now, for such a time that, according to various Biblical scholars, has been widely regarded as “these last and evil days” or “the last of the last and evil days.”

Or, to put it more forthrightly, a time whereby countless of believers essentially are steering from the household of faith.

A longtime resident of Houston, amongst the things about which Ashford is especially grateful is that God had strategically handpicked her to construct a spiritually-enhancing and spiritually-gut-checking project that figures to impact the kingdom mightily — much sooner than later.

As Ashford explained during an interview this week with Making Headline News, she has become destined to help advance the kingdom, thus do whatever in her God-given power to help provide those in the Body of Christ with some much-needed spiritual relief, courtesy of her month-long devotionals.

“The divine message I am sending to my (reading) audience is that you have the keys to unlock freedom within you,” said Ashford, offering a detailed and solid synopsis of her newly-assembled book.

“This book is part of my purpose that God has created for me, because I was so attached to bondage to where I lived, talked, and walked until I surrendered myself to God,” Ashford explained.

Much to her delight, once she had made up her mind to sellout completely unto God, something that ultimately gotten a hold of her (as an old songwriter once wrote).

“I became free,” said Ashford, recalling how her life-changing had all unfolded. “I used my keys to unlock my freedom and walk in purpose.’

And, the rest, as they say, was history.

THUS SAID THE LORD…

Look at her today, walking fervently in her divine purpose for such a pivotal time as now, for such a time that, according to various Biblical scholars, has been widely regarded as “these last and evil days” or “the last of the last and evil days.”

In case you’ve forgotten.

Now just days away from the release of “Keys to Freedom: 30 Day Enlightenment and Morning Glory,” Ashford’s gift is already making a room for her through this book, considering she will be on hand in Atlanta the first weekend in June for the much-anticipated unveiling of her written work.

MORE TO COME — Next up for this Christian-based author: the upcoming release of Book No. 2, this one entitled, “Divorcing My Past To walk In Destiny” at a date that has yet to be announced.

Next up for this Christian-based author: the upcoming release of Book No. 2, this one entitled, “Divorcing My Past To walk In Destiny” at a date that has yet to be announced.As for her latest book, well, Ashford, doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s excited to have taken yet another major step in her ministry.

“I chose to produce this book because one day, I was riding to work that morning,  I was having a long week that was very stressful and I said, ‘God I want to do a daily devotional that women can have when they get up in the morning and read day-by-day,” Ashford recalled. “And it came to mind: ‘Keys To Freedom Enlightenment And Morning Glory.’”

A positive, life-changing perception that has become her reality.

Yep. That’s just like God.

Detroit author Lakina Fulks connects with her God-given purpose through her newly-produced book


And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28 NIV)


PURPOSED FOR PAIN

HERE’S WHY — A native of Detroit, Lakina Fulks is the author of the book entitled, “WHY: A Young Girl’s Search For The Truth,” a 120-page project that officially made its presence on the market on February 3, 2019.

Amongst the things to which Lakina Fulks can greatly attest is that an array of pain and discomfort typically emerge amid a divorce.

Nevertheless, amongst the notable factors to which she can also substantiate is that if you stay in faith in the wake of a marital dissolution, God can ultimately provide you with a silver-lining, of sorts, as His strategic way of bringing about a sense of spiritual relief.

“It was one day in prayer as I was crying so hard going through a bad divorce that God spoke to me a said write the book now, and in that moment, He gave me the title of the book,” Fulks told Making Headline News this week.

The book to which Fulks is alluding is her newly-assembled written document entitled, “WHY: A Young Girl’s Search For The Truth,” a 120-page project that officially made its presence on the market on February 3, 2019.

“When He said, ‘Why,’ I was like, ‘why?’” said Fulks, explaining her vision for composing her recently-released book. “He said in every moment of my life, I always asked why and He will reveal why, and now I know and understand why and I am so grateful.”

A Detroit-area accomplished writer, Fulks said her divine purpose for having produced “WHY: A Young Girl’s Search For The Truth” arose as God’s strategic way to connect her with the purpose for which she was created.

GOD-ORDERED STEPS 

According to detailed synopsis of “WHY: A Young Girl’s Search For The Truth” at https://www.amazon.com/WHY-young-girls-search-truth/dp/057821055X, Fulks writes that empowerment essentially is within what she describes as a “young girl’s call for help.”

Moreover, she emphasized, “I believe that God wanted me to write this as a part of my purpose in life. Yes it was hard having to go through it, but I believe that God turns our mess in to messages. And writing this book is just the beginning of what God wants me to do with my story.”

SHE’S JUST WARMING UP — A book that has generated an immeasurable amount of success since its release, Fulks said other projects are surely on the horizon in the foreseeable future.

Having commenced to writing her first book sometime in 2015, Fulks needed somewhere in the neighborhood of four years to culminate a project she said has given way to an array of favorable feedback, coupled with a few scheduled speaking engagements in the coming months.

Never mind if some will, in fact, find it overwhelmingly difficult to come to grips with the occasionally unfavorable situations and circumstances that often arise in this thing called life.

A Detroit-area accomplished writer, Fulks said her divine purpose for having produced “WHY: A Young Girl’s Search For The Truth” arose as God’s strategic way to connect her with the purpose for which she was created.

“Even though you don’t understand the reason for your trials and tribulations, there is another side to your pain if you,” said Fulks, when asked what is divine message she’s sending to her audience through her new book. “Your story is meant to help someone coming behind you with a familiar pain. And you have to show them that they too can come out and be healed.

“Most people acknowledge how candid and raw the content is,” Fulks continued. “But the truth is, it’s my story told and some parts (are told) verbatim. And it’s not always easy to read. But once they settle in for the story, most readers say how they are able to find parts of themselves expressed through various characters, and it is freeing knowing that they aren’t alone in some of the things they suffered.”

ADVANCING THE KINGDOM — Having commenced to writing her first book sometime in 2015, Fulks needed somewhere in the neighborhood of four years to culminate a project she said has given way to an array of favorable feedback, coupled with a few scheduled speaking engagements in the coming months.

A book that has generated an immeasurable amount of success since its release, Fulks said other projects are surely on the horizon in the foreseeable future.

“There are definitely other books that I believe that God will birth out of me, but there is still a growth and healing taking place in me since the release of this book,” Fulks said. “I have started creating a journal to go along with the book that will be available this summer. The idea came when my book was asked to be in a book club and they would like a journal, so now I am doing one.”

Much to her delight, coupled with the divine calling on her life, amongst the things of which Fulks is especially grateful is that she birthed her book out of an act of obedience to God.

IN HER OWN WORDS — “I believe that God wanted me to write this as a part of my purpose in life. Yes it was hard having to go through it, but I believe that God turns our mess in to messages. And writing this book is just the beginning of what God wants me to do with my story,” Fulks said.

The same God Who can ultimately provide you with a silver-lining, of sorts, as His strategic way of bringing about a sense of spiritual relief.

“All of us are born with a cross that we must bear just like Christ,” Fulks said. “And I suffered a lot as a child and my early adult years. But the awesome thing about God is that all things work together for our good. And this book is a part of the big picture of what I was purposed for. Had I believed that pain was the only part of my life experience, this book would have never come to past. But God….”

She’s got that right.

But God…

Missouri author Roxanne Potter flexing her spiritual muscles, courtesy of her empowering books


For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. (2 Corinthians 4:17 KJV) 


THE POTTER’S TOUCH 

GOD’S THE POTTER, SHE’S THE CLAY — A Mount Vernon, Missouri-based author who is a licensed minister, as well as the Founder of Roxanne Potter Ministries, Incorporated, Roxanne Potter’s has written two books to date, both of which are indicative of the immeasurable strides she’s made since she has sold out completely to God.

DALLAS — In a rather appropriate way of playing off words, Roxanne Potter was determined to do it afraid for such a time as this.

A time during which God was strategically using her for His glory.

“Four years ago, God laid it on my heart to share parts of my testimony,” Potter, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, said of her vision to compose her first book entitled, “For Such A Time As This.”

“And two years ago, God laid it on my heart to write my first journey through cancer,” said Potter, alluding to her second written work entitled, “Do It Afraid.”

A Mount Vernon, Missouri-based author who is a licensed minister, as well as the Founder of Roxanne Potter Ministries, Incorporated, Potter’s books are indicative of the immeasurable strides she’s made since she has sold out completely to God.

A book that is comprised 74 pages, Potter’s “For Such A Time As This” was officially released on January 26, 2016 and is centered largely on Roxanne’s journey to finding what she’s deemed her “God moment,” according to a detailed introduction of this book at https://www.amazon.com/Such-Time-as-This/dp/1512727148.

BUY ROXANNE’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Do-Afraid-Roxanne-Potter/dp/1633082717

Released on June 8, 2017, Potter’s “Do It Afraid” is an 80-page written document that recalls this Christian-based writer’s assortment of life-altering experiences with breast cancer, particularly how she was determined not to allow it to have her.

“She conquered it with God’s help,” said a spokesperson for Potter’s “Do It Afraid” in a thorough breakdown at https://www.amazon.com/Do-Afraid-Roxanne-Potter/dp/1633082717. “She did everything that she knew would irritate the devil and pleases the Lord. She became a warrior. Her prayer is that as you read this book, you will find tips and tools to help you overcome fear and be equipped in whatever battle that you may be facing.”

As for the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience through her books, Potter wasted little time being rather forthright and direct.

Or, in a rather appropriate way of playing off words, this devout woman of faith was determined to do it afraid for such a time as this.

MORE ON MINISTER ROXANNE POTTER: https://www.roxannepotterministries.com/

“Don’t give up,” Potter said with such authority. “Don’t give up on God. No matter what you have been through and what you are going though, it does not define you and you do not have to remain a victim, but you can be victorious through Jesus Christ.”

Much to her delight and to her credit, the feedback since the ceremoniously release of her books have been favorable.

“Lots of faith, hope, and inspiration birthed out of these books and always in demand,” Potter said. “And with the transparency of both books, people have absolutely loved it and said it made them feel they can achieve too.”

IT’S A GOOD — Much to her delight and to her credit, the feedback since the ceremoniously release of her books have been favorable.

For Potter, amongst the things about which she’s convinced is that her spiritually-empowering books undoubtedly are signs of things to come.

“(I want) To help many women and young ladies along with men realize that all things are possible with God,” she said. “I was called to inspire people to go after God. Through these books, I hold major women’s conferences, speak, and sing, which, are all the calling of God on my life.”

Especially for such a time as this.

Memphis businessman/author Tony Jackson’s new book blossoms into forthcoming movie

MEMPHIS MADE

DALLAS — Tony Jackson just keeps on making major strides.

A young, thriving Mid-South-area businessman, Jackson is not only having an immeasurable, continuous impact on the Mid-South-area entrepreneurship landscape, but with the help of his beloved companion, Monica Jackson, Tony Jackson has managed to savor yet another milestone, one that’s centered largely on — brace yourselves — producing a movie.

Yep. This isn’t merely a typo. Rather, it’s reality, an awe-inspiring development that surfaced, courtesy of Tony Jackson’s book entitled, “The Fair Shot That Was Never Given.”

Interestingly, the Jacksons’ movie stems from Chapter 4 of his book  entitled, “The Story Of Randolph,” which is available for purchase at Walmart.com, BarnesAndNoble.com, and Amazon.com. To his credit, Tony Jackson allows viewers access to the daily life of a Pastor, who’s struggling with being a manfirst and foremost, and then a Pastor.

Randolph, as Jackson explained during a recent interview with Making Headline News, is under a constant monitoring by people around him, considering he’s eager to do what this producers deems as “regular things,” thus become actively engaged in having fun without being bound by the “Bishop” title that he carries.

“He is a young Bishop and feels he has been bottled, because of the title, and the expectations of people.” Tony Jackson said of Bishop Randolph, who’s characterized by rising actor Mynoris Woods.

Interestingly, the Jacksons’ movie stems from Chapter 4 of his book that’s entitled, “The Story Of Randolph,” which is available for purchase at Walmart.com, BarnesAndNoble.com, and Amazon.com. To his credit, Tony Jackson allows viewers access to the daily life of a Pastor who’s struggling with being the man first and foremost, and then a Pastor second.

The young lady he’s diligently pursuing is up-and-coming actress Sweetrica Baker, who plays “Kelly” in this newly-produced film. The other main character is “Aunt Julie” (Kelly’s Aunt), who’s original name is Mrs. Mary White.

Surely, while the “The Story Of Randolph” figures to be an intriguing and informative movie, MHN deemed it essential to speak with other cast members of the Jacksons’ forthcoming project.

That said, we present to you a dose of our Q’s and A’s.

 

ABOUT TO BE LIT — This isn’t merely a typo. Rather, it’s reality, an awe-inspiring development that surfaced, courtesy of Tony Jackson’s book entitled, “The Fair Shot That Was Never Given.”

MHN: What production company did you partner with on this movie?

TONY JACKSON: I’m glad you asked. We went with one of the dopest film makers out of Nashville named Victoria Jones. Her company is VaJones Films, In addition to VaJones, she brought on All-Star editor/film crew member Clarence Scott of CScottRun Productions. Additionally, they flew in another bright mind from Nashville: Kevin Mumphrey of Kevin Mumphrey MumphreyProductionsLLC, who also does production and sound. And my wife, Monica R. Jackson, and myself are co-directors, and together, we makeup Jackson4CompaniesLLC. This is a dynamic team. They have been a part of a lot of major projects over the years, including the show, “Nashville.”

MHN: What do you like most about being an actress and playing the role of Kelly?

SWEETRICA BAKER: I enjoy becoming the character. I have always had an appreciation for the arts. It has always been a part of my life in one form or another. My mother always desired for me to do something in modeling, but for years, I was self-conscious about my body and even my skin, so I settled for acting classes in my youth. As I have grown older and learned to appreciate life and the various ways we live it, I have learned to embrace my curves and everything about me that makes me different from everyone else. As an actress, you get to step outside of yourself and become someone else. It is easy for me to feel what my character is feeling, but at some point I was there, too. I understand Kelly not wanting to be burned, especially by a man of the cloth. When you are attached to a messenger of God’s word, you are voluntarily exposed to other’s judgments constantly. The man, not the minister, can’t show that he is fallible. The woman attached to him seems to be held accountable for not only his public image, but her’s and everyone attached to them. I can’t image every first lady’s burden.

Randolph, as Jackson explained to Making Headline News during a recent interview, is under a constant monitoring by people around him, considering he’s eager to do what this producers deems as “regular things,” thus become actively engaged in having fun without being bound by the “Bishop” title that he carries.

MHN: Mynoris Woods, or Bishop if I may ask, What do you like most about being an actor and playing the role of Randolph?

MYNORIS WOODS: It allows me to formulate and understanding for my character and to actually bring my character to life. And playing Randolph in the movie is nothing short of a blessing. It is amazing to play a role that’s so many people and so many clergy individuals have had to deal with on a daily basis, being judged just because they are a man or woman of the cloth. I love playing Randolph. It is one of the most exciting roles I’ve ever had in my life it actually reminds me of myself — LOL — but don’t tell no one.

MHN: What are amongst the age groups to whom your endeavor caters to?

MONICA JACKSON: I think we are attempting to cater to everyone, but putting a special focus on the church goers, people of faith, or anyone that puts people on pedestals knowingly or unknowingly. People in these positions are people first and their title second. They are watched so closely and are stressed a lot of times because they feel they are on that line.

MHN: In your own words, why is it imperative that you esteem and inspire others daily?

TONY JACKSON: Because life is hard. Literally every day, you have to get up and choose to be happy. Happy to me is a mindset. Very simple way I look at it. I control my feelings. If I’m happy, I’m happy, if I’m sad, I’m sad. As it relates to most things, if you say you’re going to do something, simply because you tried, you’ve succeeded. Failure is no such thing. But you’ll have to read all about that in my book, “The Fair Shot That Was Never Given.”

ACTION JACKSON
