Amid rash of setbacks, Maryland author Lawan D. Ferguson’s ‘Overcoming Adversity’ book is officially released


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


PURPOSED FOR PAIN 

GOD’S LEADING LADY — Lady Lawan D. Ferguson, an Upper Marlboro, Maryland-based author, recently unleashed an assortment of spiritually-empowering testimonies, an awe-inspiring trend that came wrapped up in a book entitled, “Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past the Pain.”

Come hell or high water, say this about Lady Lawan D. Ferguson:

She’s undoubtedly going to find the strength to tell of God’s goodness and mercies, courtesy of a few life-changing testimonies.
Just recently, in fact, this Upper Marlboro, Maryland-based author steadfastly unleashed an assortment of spiritually-empowering testimonies, an awe-inspiring trend that came wrapped up in a book entitled, “Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past the Pain.”
A book that made its ceremoniously launch in May 2019, but was released approximately a month later, Ferguson’s “Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past the Pain” singles out the dreaded adversary, during which this writer says customarily unfolds in our lives to keep us paralyzed and from reaching our fullest potential in God, as mentioned in a detailed introduction of this book at Amazon.com.

PURCHASE LADY FERGUSON’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.ca/Overcoming-Adversity-Pushing-Past-Pain/dp/1099733634

“We feel trapped and oftentimes not able to find a way of escape,” said a spokesperson for Ferguson’s ‘Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past the Pain.’ “Through the roughest of trials and tribulations, we forget that we serve a mighty God who can do all things but fail. ‘Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past The Pain’ is a book of personal testimonies that will enlighten, inspire, encourage, teach and motivate you to push beyond those difficult times and to trust God when in the midst of it all.”

A 145-page book that Ferguson began assembling two years ago, her latest written work initially was comprised of a dozen authors, a few of whom fell off from the project amid what the featured writer describes as a flurry of “setbacks, restructures, and reorganizations.”

Consequently, that gave way to a brief delay until “God was able to cut out the riffraff,” Ferguson said, thus reconstruct a group with what she dubs a “chosen generation of eight amazing co-authors.”

A book signing for Ferguson’s latest book is scheduled for August 24 at the Holiday Inn Reagan National Airport, located at 2650 Richmond Highway in nearby Arlington, Virginia.


SAVE THE DATE

After forming a strategic team of authors, Ferguson had managed to spearhead and move forward with a spiritually-empowering book that figures to become a fixture in the Body of Christ — much sooner than later.

“This book is to encourage, inspire, motivate, and aid others to trust God in all they do,” Ferguson told Making Headline News this week. “God has called me to be a light in a world of darkness and to have compassion for people and deep passion for (Him). God has called me to be an ambassador for the kingdom, to minister the word of God and to aid others in reaching their fullest potential in a purposed-filled life.”

A book that’s a little more than a month removed from its release, the feedback for Ferguson’s “Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past The Pain” has been mostly favorable, she said.

“(The) testimonials of the readers are very positive,” Ferguson said. “People are being healed, set free, and delivered as a result of reading these awesome and Holy Ghost-inspired testimonies.”

A native of Washington, D.C., Ferguson is an accomplished licensed minister and an ordained deaconess, who serves as a trustee at Christ Creative Baptist Church (or CCBC) in nearby Temple Hills, Maryland.

As for her notable authorship tenure, she’s made valiant contributions to other collaborative and bestselling projects: “Perfectly Imperfect: Seeing Yourself Through The Eyes Of God” (released in July 2016); “I Survived: Written By Survivors for Survivors” (released on April 5, 2019).

She founded and established leadership to the CCBC Women’s ministry, “Sisters Aiding In Transforming Sisters” (or S.A.IN.T.S.), which strategically focuses on and aids in cultivating, redesigning, transforming, encouraging, motivating, uplifting, and empowering women in their individual and spiritual lives.

Widely known throughout the Body of Christ as Lady Ferguson, this devout woman of faith is married to the Reverend Dr. George St. Anthony Ferguson, who is the Founder and Senior Pastor of CCBC.

Her educational resume includes having earned an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Business Management, a Bachelor of Arts in Religion and Theological Studies, a Master of Business Administration with an emphasis in Acquisitions, and a Master’s certificate in Government Contracts.

Interestingly, Lady Ferguson has served over 28 years in federal government and is presently a licensed coach, as well as a financial aid and college mentoring coach.

As for her latest book, Ferguson is especially grateful of the notion that it is as good as advertised.

“(I just want? to help someone get through a rough time in life by sharing encouraging testimonies of triumph over adversity,” she said.

Well said by this, a true overcomer in Christ.

Tennessee author Reverend Dr. Sonja Deloatch addresses colleagues, millennials in ‘Soulful Prayers’


Give praise to the LORD, proclaim His name; make known among the nations what He has done. (Psalm 105:1 NIV)


CALL TO DISCIPLESHIP 

DIVINE CONNECTION — As Reverend Dr. Sonja Deloatch explained, that she had the backing of a solid supporting that aided her mightily with regards to putting her authorship gifts on display also fueled her desire to contribute to Cheryl Polote-Williamson’s “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”

DALLAS — No one has to pump Reverend Dr. Sonja Deloatch up to strike up a conversation about all of the hoopla surrounding the globally-acclaimed, bestselling winning written work that is “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”

I am excited about my collaboration with Cheryl Polote-Williamson in our new book #SoulfulPrayers,” Dr. Deloatch wrote in a recent social post before her 5,000 Facebook followers. “It’s ALMOST TIME! #SoulfulPrayers is an essential book for every believer––no matter where you are in your relationship with Him.”
And just like, Dr. Deloatch issued an essential reminder to the masses about an awe-inspiring, spiritually-enhancing book that is steadily have a massive in the Body of Christ — this amid less than a week removed from his much-anticipated released.
“It has been a long time; however, I was pressing the idea of writing, because I struggle that no one wanted to hear what I have to say,” said Deloatch, recalling the developments that preceded her quest to contribute to Soulful Prayers. “However, when I lost my husband, my heart just sunk.  Doing that course, I would see post of others who lost their husbands and I heard it clear this title: “A Conversation With God’ that did not include me.”

A book that was officially launched during a nationally-acclaimed ceremony here last weekend, “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God” is forwarded by award-winning and bestselling author/businesswoman Cheryl Polote-Williamson.

As Dr. Deloatch explained during an interview this week with Making Headline News, that she had the fervent backing of a solid supporting cast that aided her mightily with regards to putting her authorship gifts on display also fueled her desire to contribute to Polote-Williamson’s ‘Soulful Prayers.”

“(For one, I had) someone who was doing the editing,” Dr. Deloatch said. “That took a lot of stress off of me. “Learning how stop and proof read a document has always been hard for me. However, I had to learn that much of what I was facing…the additional voices in my head of trying to get it so right that I could not cut it off.”

Once Dr. Deloatch had commenced to exercising her faith through her gifts as a Christian-based writer, God — with His usual reliable Self — was there to provide to increase.


SEASON OF THE REBIRTH 

As Dr. Deloatch explained, that she had the backing of a solid supporting cast that aided her mightily with regards to putting her authorship gifts on display also fueled her desire to contribute to Polote-Williamson’s ‘Soulful Prayers.”

How else to explain why it had taken this Murfreesboro, Tennessee-based writer somewhere in the neighborhood of about 15 minutes to compose her portion of a book that figures to have a global impact much sooner than later?

“Many people would say to me, you always seem to have it together,” said Dr. Deloatch, explaining the divine message she’s sending to her reading audience through her selected prayer. “I learned early as a child how to mask my emotions…and was told when I would say things, I was too loud, too strong-minded…a big personality.”

More than anything, Dr. Deloatch acknowledged, the prayer to which God assigned her to assemble for Soulful Prayers, is a spiritual road map, of sorts, for her colleagues.

Once Dr. Deloatch commenced to exercising her faith through her gifts as a Christian-based writer, God — His usual reliable Self — was there to plant to increase.

A native of Nashville, Dr. Deloatch is the Senior Pastor of Winters Chapel African Methodist Episcopal in Lebanon, Tennessee.


“I believe this prayer is looking at our clergy persons,” Dr. Deloatch explained. “I have been in the AME Church all my life, and I trusted that whatever my Pastor said was the truth. He appeared to me to be a strong man, had a direct line to God and whatever I needed, he would get my message to God. However, now that I am a Pastor, I have my own relationship with Jesus, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.”


“I know now that I am not perfect and my job is to introduce others to Who God is,” Dr. Deloatch said. “For clergy (men and women), we need to be real with God and not some superficial mask, preaching the Gospel. That we are human and we bring the word to all those who want to hear it, we (also) are servants and we suffer just like Jesus, Who wept for the lost. He wept for us and we are caring a burden of life and pain like others.”

And because Dr. Deloatch doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s completely sold out to God Almighty for the rest of her days on this side of heaven, rest assured that as it pertains to possessing and retaining a solid prayer life, she’s destined to routinely enlighten the world of just how mandatory talking to God is, especially during these perilous times.

For what it’s worth, Dr. Deloatch emphasized that the message that she and her colleagues in the Body of Christ preaches to God’s people is especially vital for today’s youths.

“The young people — these millennials — want to see the authentic self of us,” said Dr. Deloatch, adding that the feedback since the release of “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God” have been overwhelmingly favorable. “(This book) has provided a platform to start a conversation with God. It has brought me to place of deeper understanding about a more personal relationship with Christ Jesus.”

An “understanding” she’s especially destined to pass along and put on display not just before those in the Body of Christ, but for those who aspire to establish a wholesome, more meaningful relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

“Once (Polote-Williamson’s) vision was shared with me, it connected in my spirit, because I am a prayer warrior,” Dr. Holmes told Making Headline News this week.

Georgia author Angela Kinnel advancing the kingdom mightily through her work in Soulful Prayers


Pray without ceasing; in everything, give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. (1 Thessalonians 5:17-18)


OH SWEET WONDER 

HOW GREAT THY ART — To grasp a broader concept on why God has strategically allowed Angela Kinnel to thrive and flourish in her element through the ever-so-competitive world of authorship, look no further than the national hoopla surrounding her latest achievement as one of a slew of writers who collectively assembled “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”

DALLAS — Another book, another massive step toward the God-mandated destiny for accomplished author Angela Kinnel.

To grasp a broader concept on why God has strategically allowed Kinnel to thrive and flourish in her element through the ever-so-competitive world of authorship, look no further than the national hoopla surrounding her latest achievement as one of a slew of writers who collectively assembled “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”
A book that was officially released on June 29 here, Kinnel were amongst more than four dozen authors who contributed to a Christian-based written work that was spearheaded by award-winning author/businesswoman Cheryl Polote-Williamson.
“Once Cheryl presented the concept of the book, I knew that I had to be a part of it,” Kinnel told Making Headline News during a weekend interview.

A book that was officially released on June 29 here, Kinnel were amongst more than four dozen authors who contributed to a Christian-based written work that was spearheaded by award-winning author/businesswoman Cheryl Polote-Williamson.

A native of Dawson, Georgia who currently resides in nearby Hampton, Kinnel was responsible for having composed the prayer entitled, “When A Parent Returns To God,” a dialogue with God Almighty that’s centered largely on the transition of a parent.

“It only took me a day to write it, because it was a prayer that I’d prayed to God already after going through my mother’s transition,” Kinnel explained. “Through this book, I’d like for my audience to know that grief is a process. But they don’t have to go through it alone. God is the Only One Who can guide you through your good days as well as your bad days.”

For what it’s worth, Kinnel essentially encourages her reading audience through this newly-produced that even while enduring the loss of parent, God is faithful and just that He’s still able to do “exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,” as the Apostle Paul specifically reminds us, according to Ephesians 3:20.


“You don’t have to figure out how your life is going to go one without your parent,” Kinnel said. “Place all of your trust in God. He has you covered. I want (my reading audience) to know that the pain never goes away, but God restores you to where you can live on and look forward to seeing your loved one again. Yield to Him.”


A devout woman of faith in her own right, Kinnel can greatly attest to the notion that God undoubtedly is using her to advance the kingdom, most notably as a Christian-oriented author.

That’s because Kinnel’s immeasurable authorship resume includes the books:

  • “Identity: Who Do You Think You Are?”  — a project she co-authored with Robert Johnson in 2016, which breakdowns our identity in Christ

  • “Soul Talk Volume 2: Soul-Stirring Stories Of People Who Let Go and Let God”  — a written document she co-authored with Polote-Williamson in 2018. In this book, Kinnel addresses what is known as “Stop Cheering And Get In the Game,” whereby she eloquently discusses how she overcame depression and began to cheer for herself toward, all the while pursing my dreams and,

  • “Rise, Pray & Slay: Strategies To Heal The Land” — a project she co-authored with Linda D. Lee earlier this year. In this book, Kinnel speaks from the subject entitled, “From Fear To Faith,” during which she discusses how she overcame the fear of becoming who God created her to be.


THIS IS HOLY GROUND 

Because of whom she is and because of where God is taking her, Kinnel doesn’t shy away from the notion that her latest written work is synonymous with the purpose for which God has created her.

As for her valiant contributions to “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God,” the feedback since its release has been overwhelmingly favorable, Kinnel said.

“I had a young lady walk up to me at the book launch in tears,” Kinnel recalls. “She told me that she identified with my prayer, because she’d lost her mother back in 2015.  All we could do was hug each other. She also said that it encouraged her to keep trusting God through her pain.”

Because of whom she is and because of where God is taking her, Kinnel doesn’t shy away from the notion that her latest written work is synonymous with the purpose for which God has created her.

“This book has allowed me to minister to the broken-hearted through my personal prayer,” Kinnel said. “I’ve been called to minister to the body of Christ and God has allowed me to do so through books. If what I’ve shared thus far touches at least one soul, then I’ve done what He told me to do.”

REMEMBER MOM — A native of Dawson, Georgia who currently resides in nearby Hampton, Kinnel was responsible for having composed the prayer entitled, “When A Parent Returns To God,” a dialogue with God Almighty that’s centered largely on the transition of a parent.

A few days removed from the ceremonious release of her latest project, plans are currently underway, during which Kinnel will be afforded the golden opportunity to promote “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”

Interestingly, Kinnel announced: “I am in the planning stages right now of writing my first book solo. I hope to release it by Spring 2020.”

In addition, Kinnel will be a guest speaker at the Glambitious Atlanta Entrepreneur Conference on August 24, during which she will be speaking on the subject, “Faith And Work,” as well as offer copies of her books, she said.

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.

We just have to enjoy, not despise our wait, because it will always be worth the wait.”

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.


BUY CRYSTAL’S BOOK HERE: https://www.chryscastillo.com/

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!
