Detroit author Pamela Kennedy overpowers 20-year drug addiction, she writes in her latest book

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS MOTHER’S DAY 2019 SPECIAL REPORT


But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. (2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV)


BEACON OF LIGHT

DESTINY STEPS — A Detroit-area writer, Kennedy authored the book entitled, “Coming Out Of Utter Darkness: Memoirs Of An Addict And How I Survived.” All things considered, the merely fact that God allowed Kennedy to escape and conquer her seemingly uncontrollable addiction is a massive miracle in its own right, one that had consequently fueled her desire to compose her assortment of testimonies in a tear-jerking, emotionally-driven book.

Pamela Kennedy was just 13 years old, barely a teenager.

Yet, even at that tender age, Kennedy was spiritually — and naturally — saddened by a dreaded enslavement, of sorts, one that could have very well ended her life prematurely.

One that, truth be told, had often left her essentially questioning her very existence.
Once plagued and spiritually incarcerated by a drug addiction that spanned roughly two decades — from the time she was 13 until she reached 33 years of age, to be technical — Kennedy’s Creator deemed it absolutely essential to provide for her a way of escape long enough for her to assume an assignment that would eventually silence her critics once and for all.

MUST READ — For Kennedy, it seemed that even while being confined to a drug treatment center, she was blessed to have discovered her purpose as a Christian-based author. That’s because it was during that time that she began composing a book she finally finished in 2017.

A Detroit-area writer, Kennedy authored the book entitled, “Coming Out Of Utter Darkness: Memoirs Of An Addict And How I Survived.”

All things considered, the mere fact that God allowed Kennedy to escape and conquer her seemingly uncontrollable addiction is a massive miracle in its own right, one that had consequently fueled her desire to compose her assortment of testimonies in a tear-jerking, emotionally-driven book.

“I started writing while I was in the treatment center,” Kennedy told Making Headline News this week. “It was painful to mentally and emotionally relive my past.”

A book that is accompanied by 76 pages, Kennedy’s “Coming Out Of Utter Darkness: Memoirs Of An Addict And How I Survived” is two years removed from its much-anticipated release and is this writer’s version of a tell-all project, one in which she appropriately recalls her fervent quest to survive, all the while nurturing two children.

Still, as Kennedy vividly recalls, it was a past that had to happen and unfold so that God could strategically position and equip her for such a time as now — a time whereby she can tell with boldness how her Creator orchestrated on her behalf an unlikely comeback for the ages.

“Today, I’m clean and sober, born again with 27-plus years in recovery, and I share that there is life after your issues,” Kennedy writes in a detailed breakdown of her at Amazon.com. “The grace and mercy of God has brought me, my two children, and many of my other family members to His redemptive love.”

All things considered, the mere fact that God allowed Kennedy to escape and conquer her seemingly uncontrollable addiction is a massive miracle in its own right, one that had consequently fueled her desire to compose her assortment of testimonies in a tear-jerking, emotionally-driven book.

For Kennedy, it seemed that even while being confined to a local drug treatment center, she was blessed to have discovered her purpose as a Christian-based author.

That’s because it was during that time she began composing a book she finally finished in 2017.

To her credit, it has been a constant page-turner ever since.

While other books undoubtedly top her strategic objectives in the foreseeable future, Kennedy is overwhelmingly grateful of the fact that God spared her life so that she could aid others to draw closer to Him.

“I wanted to tell my story in hopes that it would give others with the same struggles hope to know that there is a way out,” Kennedy said of a book that is steadily generating favorable feedback. “I want to offer hope to the families of anyone who may be trapped in the snares of an enemy that cannot be seen with the natural eye.”

While other books undoubtedly top her strategic objectives in the foreseeable future, Kennedy is overwhelmingly grateful of the fact that God spared her life so that she could aid others to draw closer to Him.

BUT GOD — Once plagued and spiritually incarcerated by a drug addiction that spanned roughly two decades — from the time she was 13 until she reached 33 years of age, to be technical — Kennedy’s Creator deemed it absolutely essential to provide for her a way of escape long enough for her to assume an assignment that would eventually silence her critics once and for all.

In that order.

“God’s purpose for allowing me to write this book has been to assist many to come to a place of manifested healing and deliverance that they never thought possible,” Kennedy said. “As I now have 29-years of sobriety, I do plan to write another book on more of the process. I believe that if we would trust God’s process, we would see more clearly His purpose.”

Something to which this godly, big-hearted and devout woman of faith can dauntless speak on.

So much for all those times she found herself questioning her very existence.

Detroit co-author breaks her silence in a book amid abuse, child molestation


I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. (Psalm 139:14 NIV)


DALLAS — For Shanetta Turner, she sensed the time had finally come to confront the massive stronghold that essentially was keeping her bound, that spiritual barricade that, in some aspects, was blocking her view from her purpose.

And her destiny.

Suddenly, after years of trying to gain closure to a pressing issue that, by all accounts, was reducing her effectiveness to thrive both in natural and the spiritual, Turner sensed it was time to cross paths once again with her sexual abuser, that very person who had caused great damage to the purpose for which she was created.

Never mind that her molester was of kin.


SLAYING THE GIANT

BREAKING HER SILENCE — After years of trying to gain closure to a pressing issue that, by all accounts, was reducing her effectiveness to thrive both in natural and the spiritual, Detroit-area author Shanetta Turner sensed that it was time to cross paths once again with the sexual abuser, who caused great damage to the purpose for which she was created. Turner had managed to garner the essential closure she sought is due in large part to her golden opportunity she was afforded in the book entitled, “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2.”

“I finally spoken to the man that molested me, which is my cousin…my mom’s biological nephew,” Turner, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling her dauntless confrontation with her cousin some two months ago. “It happened to me when I was 12, a preteen.”

As Turner explained, such a disheartening, emotionally-driven development had sent her into an unwarranted tailspin at such a young age, something by which she found difficult to stomach for years.

“I guess you can say that I was torn, because after that, I had to grow up too fast, having (experienced) traumatic, abusive relationships throughout my adult life until now.

BUY NOW — A book that is comprised of a dozen authors — and “One Voice” as mentioned on the cover — “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2” addresses a variety of pertinent topics, most notably surviving divorce, sexual and physical abuse, broken identity, and mental illness, among other subjects.

Amongst the reasons that Turner had managed to garner the essential closure she sought is due in large part to her golden opportunity she was afforded in the book entitled, “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2.”

A native of Detroit, Turner — who’s widely known as “Justice Sista” by way of her Justice Strong Sista Support Group — was presented with the opportunity to contribute to the second edition of “I Am A Black Woman” by Atlanta-area empowerment coach and fellow author Dr. Carolyn Stephens.

A book that is comprised of a dozen authors — and “One Voice” as mentioned on the cover — “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2” addresses a variety of pertinent topics, most notably surviving divorce, sexual and physical abuse, broken identity, and mental illness, among other subjects.

SISTA TO SISTA — A native of Detroit, Turner — who’s widely known as “Justice Sista” by way of her Justice Strong Sista Support Group — was presented with the opportunity to contribute to the second edition of “I Am A Black Woman” by Atlanta-area empowerment coach and fellow author Dr. Carolyn Stephens.

Faced with a brief time frame to submit her submission for this book, Turner wasted little time making her presence felt, having completed her portion of “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2” just shy of two months.

As Turner specifically acknowledged, there was a major reason for her having demonstrated such eagerness to contribute to a book that figures to change a generation.


THUS SAID THE LORD…

“There are more women like me that are scared and holding (their struggles) in for years at a time and staying in silence,” Turner said. “I held mine in for 25 years.”

Sometime during the course the recent holiday season, though, God had birthed this young and gifted writer with the vision to carry out her vision.

Even it meant confronting her abuser, who happened to be a blood relative.

HEART FOR PEOPLE — Faced with a brief timeframe to submit her submission for this book, Turner wasted little time making her presence felt, having completed her portion of “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2” just shy of two months.

“I know God has created me to be a Queen, a woman of respect, leadership, and dignity,” Turner said. “God has creates me to serve others, no matter if it’ in a book, helping a homeless person or a person that has everything but needs some advice, or a person that is in tough times in life.”

For her valiant efforts, coupled with her wealth of transparency, Turner doesn’t shy away from the notion that her latter days will be greater than her former days — with God, her Helper, steering the way.


“My reward from God will be huge,” Turner says without hesitation. “Having sympathy for people and their pain is a job within itself, but is very warm to my heart. When I finally felt good about what I had been wanting to say for over 25 years, I didn’t care what others thought of me for my truth, and speaking to my very first domestic violence sister and her helping her understand there is no need to take your own life because of your past and that you are not alone. I have been there before and that I got help someone, that feeling was unexplainable.”


Not that she’s made her authorship debut, other written projects are surely in the works, likely a few co-written books that will hit the market as early as next year, said Turner, the CEO and Founder of Justice Strong Sistas, LLC.

Also, Turner, who resides in Macomb, Michigan, is scheduled to take part in a  book signing fundraiser event in June in nearby Detroit, during which she will serve as an advocate for “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2” and her support group.

South Carolina author Cherell Evans Latimer’s books empowering women to overpower domestic violence


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


IN A GOOD PLACE

ADVANCING THE KINGDOM — A book that Cherell Evans Latimer needed approximately six months to compose, this Greenville, South Carolina-based author deemed it essential to assemble “Castdown: God Remembers You” in large part because, according to her, we all have either met someone or have been in some form of domestic violence relationship.

Cherell Evans Latimer doesn’t shy away from the notion that she has a spiritual place.

As far as she’s concerned, she’s destined to go to great lengths to protect it all cost.

Consider, for instance, how Latimer’s proverbial spiritual place was essentially challenged, particularly during a time in which God was strategically positioning her to engage in a life-changing assignment.

As Latimer recalled, it all unfolded about a year or so ago.

“(In) January of 2018, I was focusing on my relationship with God more and more,” Latimer told Making Headline News this week. “I couldn’t find any books that interest me. I would usually read paranormal fictions, but they were disrupting my spiritual place.”

Ahhh…

GOD’S PLAN — A native of Muskegon Heights, Michigan — a rural establishment that rest in Muskegon County and is comprised of roughly 10,856 residents, according to the latest U. S. census — Latimer’s initial plan was to begin writing “Castdown: God Remembers You” at the beginning of last year, but the routine plans surrounding her wedding had caused a three-month delay.

So that is when Latimer had begun to witness her life’s much-anticipated turning point, one that had ultimately catapulted her to what undoubtedly has become a ceremoniously chapter in the process.

“When I searched for Christian fiction (books), I didn’t find anything that would keep me interested, so God gave me this story line,” Latimer said.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

FOR STARTERS — A businesswoman who works primarily from home as the owner of a health and wellness online shopping venture, Latimer also authored “The Wrong Kind Of Love: Defined By God,” a book that recalls what this writer describes as her “personal story and experience with domestic violence.” That book was published June 2017.

And just like that, Latimer had eventually emerged as the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Castdown: God Remembers You,” her spiritually-enhancing, thought-provoking project that is somewhere in the neighborhood of three months removed since it was officially published.

A book that Latimer needed approximately six months to compose, this Greenville, South Carolina-based author deemed it essential to assemble “Castdown: God Remembers You” in large part because, according to her, we all have either met someone or have been in some form of domestic violence relationship.

And here’s the real shocker that’s essentially crippling the modern-day church, according to this brilliant writer:


“It’s more stressful, it seems, for the married Christians,” Latimer said of the dreaded trend that is domestic violence. “Especially if you’re a pastor, deacon, or community leader. People that are well known are held to a higher standard and it would be world news if these private lives were exposed. I wanted to show people that God still hears and remembers you.  You may not see it, but He is working on your behalf.”


A native of Muskegon Heights, Michigan — a rural establishment that rest in Muskegon County and is comprised of roughly 10,856 residents, according to the latest U. S. census — Latimer’s initial plan was to begin writing “Castdown: God Remembers You” at the beginning of last year, but the routine plans surrounding her wedding had caused a three-month delay.

VISION UNFOLDING — When asked what is the divine message she’s sending to her reading audience through her latest book, Latimer, a domestic violence survivor, eloquently said, “That God is real. His angels are real and there is life after domestic violence. My goal is to reach those that won’t go to church, but still love a good read…those that believe in God, but are still stuck in the world’s way of living. God can fix any mess you may be in.”

However, once she commenced to constructing a book that figures to impact countless of lives throughout the Body of Christ and can be purchased at https://acepublishing.org/, she was reminded, among other things, that God had essentially singled her out to write a book for such a critical time as now.

That book was published June 2017.

Now with “Castdown: God Remembers You” presently on the market, Latimer has announced that other books are forthcoming, most notably “Castdown 2: God Is Pleased,” which is projected to hit the market this summer.


WOMAN OF PURPOSE 

ARRANGED AND APPOINTED BY GOD — Latimer had eventually emerged as the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Castdown: God Remembers You,” her spiritually-enhancing, thought-provoking project that is somewhere in the neighborhood of three months since it was officially published.

To her credit, she’s become the beneficiary of some favorable feedback since the release of her latest book.

“(Check out the) reviews from amazon,” said Latimer, who has already taken part in a few book signings since the release of her latest written document. “(People say it is) easy read and the characters you care about. I love the intertwining of the Word with the storyline and characters, and (people are) looking forward to the next book. It’s a great book for women in similar situations.”

Because after all, our spiritual place somewhat by which we must protect at all cost.

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


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


Christel West had just about had enough.

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


HOW THE WEST WAS WON

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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

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


MORE ON CHRISTEL WEST: www.christelwest.com

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

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

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

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

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

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

Detroit author Reverend Rita M. Henderson exercising her faith in ways unimaginable as an accomplished writer


But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a Rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6 KJV)


All Reverend Rita M. Henderson knows is that in 2011 on a Monday, she witnessed the overall landscape of her life undergo an unlikely makeover.

Both in the natural and spirit.

For all the right reasons, too.

“The Lord called me off what I called my good government job after working 26 years,” Henderson told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “As I was driving home, the Lord said, ‘When you drive away from here today, daughter, don’t you ever drive back here again. And I promise you that if you will take care of My business, I will take care of all of your business.’ I never drove back there.”


MUSTARD SEED KIND OF FAITH 

GOD’S FAITH STEPPER — Much to her delight, amongst the notable ways that God had greatly positioned Henderson toward her destiny is through the world of authorship, an awe-inspiring development that had given way to Reverend Rita M. Henderson assembling the book entitled, “30 Days To Increased Faith: Increase Your Faith, Attract God’s Attention And Achieve Your Dreams.”

And just like that, Henderson, exemplifying unwavering faith, had ultimately begun to witness God work diligently on her behalf in ways unimaginable.

Much to her delight, amongst the notable ways that God had greatly positioned Henderson toward her destiny is through the world of authorship, an awe-inspiring development that had given way to this Detroit native assembling the book entitled, “30 Days To Increased Faith: Increase Your Faith, Attract God’s Attention And Achieve Your Dreams.”

A spiritually-enhancing written document, Henderson’s “30 Days To Increased Faith: Increase Your Faith, Attract God’s Attention And Achieve Your Dreams” is a few month removed from having made its much-anticipated presence on the market.

ADVANCING THE KINGDOM — A spiritually-enhancing written document, Henderson’s “30 Days To Increased Faith: Increase Your Faith, Attract God’s Attention And Achieve Your Dreams” is a few month removed from having made its much-anticipated presence on the market.

Interestingly and to her credit, Henderson’s featured project undoubtedly is synonymous to the purpose for which God created her.

“30 Days to Increased Faith: Increase Your Faith, Attract God’s Attention And Achieve Your Dreams” is designed to help you build up your most holy faith,” said a spokesperson for Henderson’s newly-produced in a detailed breakdown at Amazon.com. “Using scriptural references and daily prayer points, it guides you on how to diligently seek God and how to connect with Him through faith in order to please Him and cause Him to act on your behalf.”

An accomplished writer who has surely found her niche in the ever-so-competitive world of authorship, Henderson’s “30 Days to Increased Faith: Increase Your Faith, Attract God’s Attention And Achieve Your Dreams” is comprised of a rather compelling package, considering the book comes in a two-part set and is accompanied by a 30-day journal and audio series.

A book that has garnered a slew of rave of reviews since its release and was deemed Amazon’s Best Selling Spiritual Devotional in June 2018, Henderson also authored six books to date, including having joined a gallery of writers to help assemble “I Rise: Living Beyond The Bruises.”

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

“The single most underlying reason I chose to produce ‘30 Days To Increased Faith is because people asked me for it,” said Henderson, who’s also widely known as a flourishing businesswoman and speaker. “They asked me for a spiritual devotion and they wanted a 30-day spiritual devotion. They wanted one and we talked about a Thanksgiving devotion, a faith devotional, and there was one other I can’t remember it now, but I decided out of doing a poll on Facebook.”

Once the social media ballots were cast, Henderson began her quest to give the people of God exactly what they requested.


“I decided to begin with the devotion on faith, because we know that without faith, it’s impossible to please Him. So that’s why I started and that’s how it came about. My Facebook audience asked me for it.” — Reverend Rita M. Henderson


Thanks in large part to her having obeyed the Voice of God back in 2011, Henderson is steadily reaping the benefits God had reserved exclusively for her all along.

IN A ZONE — An accomplished writer who has surely found her niche in the ever-so-competitive world of authorship, Henderson’s “30 Days to Increased Faith: Increase Your Faith, Attract God’s Attention And Achieve Your Dreams” is comprised of a rather compelling package, considering the book comes in a two-part set and is accompanied by a 30-day journal and audio series.

Yep. That’s just like God, moving fervently on behalf of a minister who, much to her delight, has evolved mightily into a best-selling author, speaker, and consultant.

“I have also been called a ‘spiritual midwife,’ because I have led many in birthing their God-ordained purpose by way of my unique style of preaching, workshops, mentorship programs,” Henderson said.

Sounding much like the beloved faith-stepper for which she widely known.

Flint, Michigan’s Precious Brown walking fervently in her purpose with her ninth published book

During what obviously was an informative and empowering assembly, Precious S. Brown thought it necessary to take it a step further.

“I was given the idea after completing a Tele-Summit titled, ‘IRise Women’s Empowerment Summit,'” Brown told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “On the Summit, we had 17 amazing speakers that helped the audience with life obstacles in the areas of abuse, health, healing, happiness, the inner critic, and so much more.”

EMPOWERMENT EXTRAORDINAIRE — To her credit, Flint, Michigan businesswoman Precious S. Brown would ultimately spearhead what has turned out to be an awe-inspiring collaborative project, one that came wrapped up in a life-enhancing book entitled, “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises,” a book that is forwarded by this accomplished Flint, Michigan-based author and empowerment extraordinaire, who is also the founder and CEO of Kilgore Publishing.

To her credit, Brown would ultimately spearhead what has turned out to be an awe-inspiring collaborative project, one that came wrapped up in a life-enhancing book entitled, “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises,” a book that is forwarded by this accomplished Flint, Michigan-based author and empowerment extraordinaire, who is also the founder and CEO of Kilgore Publishing.

An empowering, kingdom-advancing written document that is comprised of a gallery of accomplished writers, “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises” is scheduled to be officially released in December.

CREATING AN EARLY BUZZ — Brown and Co. have already become the beneficiaries of some favorable feedback — this for a book that is still weeks away from its much-anticipated release.

A native Mount Morris, Michigan, Brown, 45, has surely paid her dues in this ever-so-competitive professional writing industry, considering she is responsible for having authored what is now nine books, five of which she has written single handily.

As for her latest book, she wasted little time gathering the troops and began collaborating with them to collectively assemble “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises.”

“I begin writing immediately after the summit,” Brown explained. “I reached out to the co-authors for the extended versions of their stories to compile them for the book.”


PRECIOUS S. BROWN’S NEW BOOK TO BE RELEASED ON 12.17.18

PUTTING IN SOME WORK — A native Mount Morris, Michigan, Brown, 45, has surely paid her dues in this ever-so-competitive professional writing industry, considering she is responsible for having authored what is now nine books, five of which she has written single handily.

Interestingly and much to her delight, Brown’s latest work of art is scheduled to be complete and released on her birthday, which is December 17.

Talk about counting her array of blessings for such a remarkable time as now.

“I am super excited, because not only is it my birthday, but it is the 10th year anniversary of me living in freedom of trauma and strife – living an empowered life,” said Brown, whose authorship greatness was spearheaded through a God-orchestrated vision.

GO PRECIOUS…IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY Interestingly and much to her delight, Brown’s latest work of art is scheduled to be complete and released on her birthday, which is December 17.

“God gave me the vision to write a book when I was a little girl, but I doubted it was possible,” Brown told MHN during an October 2017 interview.

Because of who she is and because of where God is taking her, she has gone to great lengths to diligently carry out and fulfill such a lofty vision ever since.

Yep. To God be the glory for the things He has done.


“The message is that you can rise above any obstacle manifested in your life. You must believe you can, do the work to get to the next level, and greater will manifest. The authors went to great lengths to encourage, inspire, and motivate the readers to take their power back and grab life by the horns through faith.” — Precious S. Brown 


As for her latest book, Brown wasted little time gathering the troops and began collaborating with them to collectively assemble “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises.”

And, as a result, Brown and Co. have already become the beneficiaries of some favorable feedback — this for a book that is still weeks away from its much-anticipated release.

“So far, as we continue to drop seeds of the release people are anticipating another great read,” Brown said. “My audience is used to the quality material I deliver, and they are expecting nothing less than to be taken on a journey ending in empowerment.”

More than anything, though, Brown doesn’t shy away from the notion that her forthcoming book is just another memory in the divine purpose for which God has created her.

As well as for the other contributors to this book.

DESTINY STEPS — More than anything, Brown doesn’t shy away from the notion that her forthcoming book is just another memory in the divine purpose for which God has created her.

“This book adds great value to the purpose in which I was created,” Brown said. “I know my life has been designed to empower others who feel they are undeserving or unworthy. My assignment is to show the less fortunate that no matter the hand they were dealt, they too still have purpose.

“You see, had I allowed the abuses (physical, mental, emotional, drug and alcohol) to define who I am and stop me from seeing that God could use me too, the lives that are divinely connected to me would never be changed,” Brown continued. “That is the reason I continue to move forward in purpose on purpose.”

With God, her Helper, leading the way.

Yep. To God be the glory for the things He has done.

Even if it means going to great lengths to start a nonprofit organization that will greatly enable her to fulfill her lofty mission.

“Our future youths are at a high risk of suicide, school dropouts, and gang activities,” Thomas, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said when asked to explain how her competitive drive in life fueled her desire to start a notable business venture.

MAKING MAJOR STRIDES — To her credit, Shawonia Thomas, a native of Flint, Michigan, deemed it essential to establish Jabez Society Chambers Incorporated, an internationally-acclaimed nonprofit institution mission that centered largely on mentoring, educating, and enhancing the social and personal lives of our youth.

To her credit, Thomas, a native of Flint, Michigan, deemed it essential to establish Jabez Society Chambers Incorporated, an internationally-acclaimed nonprofit institution mission that centered largely on mentoring, educating, and enhancing the social and personal lives of our youth.

To grasp a thorough understanding of how vital Thomas’ organization is especially prevalent for such time as now as Making Headline News kicks off its Bishop T. D. Jakes’ 2018 Woman Thou Art Loosed advance coverage, look no further than the staggering numbers amongst suicides in America in recent years.

GOD’S LEADING LADY — To grasp a thorough understanding of how vital Thomas’ organization is especially prevalent for such time as now as Making Headline News kicks off its Bishop T. D. Jakes’ 2018 Woman Thou Art Loosed advance coverage, look no further than the staggering numbers amongst suicides in America in recent years.

According to a June 2018 report by The Washington Post, suicide rates rose in all but one state between 1999 and 2016, with increases seen across age, gender, race, and ethnicity, as cited in a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In addition, the organization discovered that of more than half of all deaths in 27 states, the people had no known mental health condition when they ended their lives.

All things considered, these are amongst the reasons Thomas has become especially committed to doing whatever is necessary to impact lives — one life at a time.

“First and foremost, it is because we are commanded to love one another,” said Thomas, explaining why it is imperative that we esteem others highly than ourselves. “Secondly, I want to be the change I want to see. Last but not least, I love seeing the growth and the joy that comes from giving and healing.”


Having been nurturing and mentoring youths for more than 15 years, Thomas’ nonprofit organization caters mostly girls ranging in ages of 10 to 16, although she emphasized that her Family Empowerment Project accommodates families nationwide.

For what it’s worth, her rise to starting a worthy nonprofit all began with a rather lofty vision, one that essentially was accompanied by God’s endorsement.

After all, she’s destined to make a difference, determined to have a monumental impact amongst youth all across America.

“After God gave me the vision, I was inspired by Miss Natalie from another nonprofit, 4 Girls, Inc., Charles Reese, Apostle Okose Emmanuel, my prophet, and Rev. Mother Ayomide of Lagos, Nigeria, my mentor,” said Thomas, whose inteniary includes an upcoming speaking engagement at schools in Ghana and Nigeria later this year.

Iowa author Spring C. Jackson’s latest book inspiring others to conquer fear while pressing toward their destiny

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES SPRING C. JACKSON 


She goes by the name of Spring C. Jackson.

How clever, considering her name is a spinoff of arguably one of the most celebrated of the annual four seasons.

Regardless, when it comes to her immeasurable gifts as an author, this remarkably brilliant writer customarily goes to great lengths to display her authorship gifts all year round.

CHI TOWN’S FINEST — Today, Cedar Rapids, Iowa-area author Spring C. Jackson’s name is affiliated with yet another awe-inspiring written document to complement two other books that were officially released this year: “We Are Women of Substance” and “Queendom Diaries: Pages From The Diary of A Queen.”

A native of Chicago, Jackson is the mastermind behind her story in the soon-to-be-released and spiritually empowering book entitled, “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises.”

For Jackson, who currently resides in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, a rather intriguing series of events unfolded leading to her having assembled “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises.”

“I came across the petition for the project, attempting to connect and network with fellow author coaches and looking to build my team as a book project manager,” Jackson told Making Headline News this week. “That is how I stumbled across Ms. Precious Brown.”

Brown, an accomplished author who has published an array of books, is the founder and CEO of Kilgore Publishing, a Flint, Michigan-based venture that has made some pretty favorable strides since its inception in March 2017.

“God actually tugged at my heart to be a part of this project,” said Jackson, referring to her partnership with Brown. “I was already on two other anthologies and was thinking to myself that was enough for now.”

GOD’S DOING — For Jackson, a rather intriguing series of events unfolded leading to her having assembled “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises.”

Much to Jackson’s delight, it didn’t take very long for her and Brown to form a solid connection, one that had ultimately given way to a masterpiece that has come wrapped up in a book.

“I initially spoke with her about what she does as a publisher,” Jackson explained. “I ended that call and just shook the thought. However, it just kept coming up in my feed, and I really felt like I was supposed to be a part of this book, so I in-boxed her and asked her if there were any more spots left.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Today, Jackson’s name is affiliated with yet another awe-inspiring written document to complement two other books that were officially released this year: “We Are Women of Substance” and “Queendom Diaries: Pages From The Diary of A Queen.”

As for “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises, a book that depicts her latest story, Jackson emphasized, among other things, that someone out there — whether it be in the world or in the Body of Christ — has full access to her story, a God-orchestrated connected whereby He’s strategically using her life-changing story to minister to them.

“If I keep it to myself forever, not only do I stay trapped in fear, but I do not fulfill His purpose for what I went through,” Jackson said.

Interestingly, it didn’t take very long for Jackson to get her latest story ready for the latest book that bears her name — somewhere in the neighborhood of two months be exact.

Now that her much-anticipated project has officially made its presence in a third book, Jackson does shy away from the notion that what her reading audience has at its disposal is the spiritual Cliff Notes on how to conquer and outlast the spirit of fear, among other attacks launched by the enemy.

“My message is simply this: Fear does not have to take over your life,” Jackson said. “I shared in this book how I made a permanent decision based on a temporary situation due largely in part by what I thought people would say and what people would think.”

RAISING THE BAR — As for “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises,” a book that depicts her latest story,  Jackson emphasized, among other things, that someone out there — whether it be in the world or in the Body of Christ — has full access to her story, a God-orchestrated connected whereby He’s strategically using her life-changing story to minister to them.

But God…

“What I learned much later is that people are people and will always fail you,” Jackson said. “People can know what you are up against and will offer their unwelcomed opinion regardless. The question is, ‘How will you respond?’”

For Jackson, it’s safe to assume that she’s responded rather masterfully to the slew of unfavorable forms of adversity she’s endured leading to her divine calling and assignment for such a time as now.

“This book is part of my purpose in two ways,” Jackson explained. “First, it is developing me as a writer. It is a gift that has been recognized in me since I was a little girl. I have always enjoyed writing and my mother always told me that I should be a journalist.

“The second is helping to develop my ministry and assisting me with the courage not to just tell my story, but show others how they can overcome the fear that keeps them bound and not being able to fulfill purpose in life, love, ministry, business can offer in so many areas,” Jackson added.

Now that her latest book had created an overwhelming sense of enthusiasm, Jackson said other books are surely on the horizon, most notably her premiere independent literary work entitled, “Fearless Faith Foundation: A  90 Day Devotional Journal.”

In this forthcoming book, Jackson will assist others on the importance of changing their mindset by helping them to abandon fear and develop their faith.

IN AWE OF GOD — Now that her latest book had created an overwhelming sense of enthusiasm, Jackson said other books are surely on the horizon, most notably her premiere independent literary work entitled, “Fearless Faith Foundation: A 90 Day Devotional Journal.”

“I also plan to write a book about fear,” Jackson said. “I am the expert on the subject, because it crippled me and choked the life right out of me for years. I unknowingly lived in a negative place, gripped by the fear of people’s opinions, displaying my God given abilities and, ultimately, not walking in purpose.

“Sharing my testimony about what I been through is just the start,” Jackson continued. “Teaching on the subject of fear is a part of my ministry and makes all of my trials and tribulations worth the journey. Glorifying the Father and serving others is the ultimate goal.”

Not just in the Spring.

But rather all year round.

Flint, Michigan businesswoman Shearese Stapleton’s Mothers Of Joy, LLC was birthed amid area’s water crisis of 2014

For what it’s worth, it’s safe to assume that one of Shearese Stapleton’s notable gifts is fortifying the gift of giving.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — A longtime educator, Flint, Michigan-area businesswoman Shearese Stapleton deemed it especially essential to start what is known as The Mothers of Joy University, LLC, a strategic, empowering organization that is geared largely toward providing effective, longstanding services that would greatly inspire families to build and sustain a strong community.

Consider, for instance, how Stapleton, 44, a native of Flint, Michigan, had gone to great lengths to aid her fellow residents the best way she knew how during the Flint water crisis that transpired in the area a little more than three years ago.

“When the city I grew up in became the product of led-infected water, when children could not drink or bath with it, (I was) able to develop tools and provide resources during this time when hope was nowhere in sight to fix a problem that has not been fixed,” Stapleton told Making Headline News this week.

To her credit, not only did Stapleton become a fixture during the Flint water crisis, during which the drinking water source for that city was changed to the Flint River and, as a result, more than 100,000 residents were potentially exposed to high levels of lead in the drinking water.

MOM KNOWS BEST — Accompanied by the theme, “”Where Empowing The family Is A Way Of Life,” Stapleton’s Mothers of Joy University organization is in its infancy stages, yet it is making a solid case that it is a resource from which Flint and the surrounding can benefit mightily, especially in the wake of a water crisis that is expected to be completely resolved no sooner than 2020.

“My children and, most of all, myself, have always wanted to help and be associates to children and other families, said Stapleton, explaining the primary purpose for her community-based organization. (My primary focus is) to give a different perspective on things that don’t seem changeable.”

To her credit, Stapleton certainly possesses the accolades and credentials to oversee an organization that figures to impact countless families in Flint and the surrounding areas.

FAMILY FOCUS — “My children and, most of all, myself, have always wanted to help and be associates to children and other families, said Stapleton, explaining the primary purpose for her community-based organization. (My primary focus is) to give a different perspective on things that don’t seem changeable.”

For starters, she is a proud alumna Flint Northwestern High School — she graduated in 1991 — and, upon earning her diploma, she earned an Associate’s Degree in Child Development from nearby Mott Community College.

Presently, Stapleton is pursuing a Developmental Psychology Degree from the University of Michigan at Flint with a minor in Social Work (with an emphasis in Family Studies).

When asked why it is imperative to esteem and inspire others daily, Stapleton appropriately said, “Because that one thing you say or do could change someone’s life.”

All of which practically sums up why one of her notable gifts is fortifying the gift of giving.

Notable Michigan author Precious S. Brown making her presence felt with seven books, more projects forthcoming

HARVEST SEASON UNFOLDING — A longtime Flint, Michigan-based businesswoman and the Founder and CEO of Kilgore Publishing, it’s safe to assume that Precious S. Brown, 44, has surely paid her dues in this ever-so-competitive professional writing industry, considering she is responsible for having authored seven books, five of which she wrote single handily.

To her distinctly unique credit, Precious S. Brown undoubtedly has found her niche in writing.

Need more proof?

“Writing can be a healing tool if used correctly,” Brown told Making Headline News this week. “I believe everyone has a story to tell, but only a few of us will be bold enough to do it, to change lives, to change the world.”

All things considered and because of the passion through writing for which she is widely known, Brown — for those who have followed her rise as an accomplished writer — has gone to great lengths to change the world, if you will.

A longtime Flint, Michigan-based businesswoman as the Founder and CEO of Kilgore Publishing, it’s safe to assume that Brown, 44, has surely paid her dues in this ever-so-competitive professional writing industry, considering she is responsible for having authored seven books, five of which she has written single handily.

MAKING THE VISION PLAIN — “My goal is to release a life-changing book once a year,” Brown said.

For the record, Brown’s rise to authorship greatness was spearheaded through a God-orchestrated vision.

“God gave me the vision to write a book when I was a little girl, but I doubted it was possible,” Brown recalled.

As it turned out, she had ultimately proven herself wrong which, much to her delight, wasn’t a bad thing.

Need more proof?

“That vision stuck with me throughout my life, but I always pushed it to the back of my mind,” Brown explained of having discovered her passion for writing. “After my divorce, (God) brought it to my remembrance and began to lay out exactly what I needed to share and provided the relationships to make it happen.”

It was in large part because of her act of obedience to her Creator, coupled with those who share a similar passion that have greatly enabled Brown to emerge as one Michigan’s finest authors.

It all began with Brown’s workbook series entitled, The Process Of Change, which is comprised of three volumes: Vol. 1: A Look At Me; Vol. 2 – Love Yourself; and Vol. 3 – Moving Forward.

Each of those written documents are used in Brown’s frequent workshops, she said and, according to the longtime writer, her “newest creation” entitled, Souls Untied, is scheduled to be released sometime in December.

In addition, Brown has engaged in a collaboration series known as: Transition 1: Create The Life You Desire and Transition 2: Ashes Emanating Beauty. As if that isn’t enough to generate the kind of exposure that has attracted a national presence, Brown has contributed to two other books, first Releasing The Fear: Walking In Faith and Shift Happens.

Both projects have been dubbed Amazon Bestsellers, she said.

All things considered, Brown’s journey as a notable author began in 2009, during which she composed her first book.

“It started as a journal to get my emotions under control,” Brown explained. “I would put it on the shelf and took it off from 2009-2012.”

Then a strange, but favorable sequence of events had unfolded the following year.

Need more proof?

ROUND OF APPLA– USE — For the record, Brown’s rise to authorship greatness was spearheaded through a God-orchestrated vision. “God gave me the vision to write a book when I was a little girl, but I doubted it was possible,” Brown recalled. As it turned out, she had ultimately proven herself wrong which, much to her delight, wasn’t a bad thing.

“I finally released it after I was challenged in September 2013,” Brown said. After that, the words kept flowing, and then I released Volumes 2 and 3 in 2014, the first Transition in 2016 and the second in 2017.”

All of which have practically fueled Brown’s creative drive to adopt what has become a personal, yet indefinite ambition, as far as she is concerned.

“My goal is to release a life-changing book once a year,” Brown said.

As always, whenever she finds herself sharing of her remarkably amazing story, chances are she will reflect back on how it all started with a vision, one that has changed the overall landscape of her life.

All things considered, Brown’s journey as a notable author began in 2009, during which she composed her first book.

“My sole reason for writing the books is two-fold,” Brown said. “I knew the vision was given to me by God, and the one thing I didn’t want to do was disappoint Him. In not disappointing Him, my purpose was birthed…to help women define themselves, relationships, and success on their own terms…to shift their mindset to align with their definition and to create the life they desire.”

Here’s more proof.

“By being very transparent in my stories and giving a lot of my personal story, trials, and triumphs, I believe the divine message is you can overcome anything is if you put your mind to it,” Brown said. “Make the decision on what you want life to be, knowing that you deserve the best and nothing can stop you.”

BASKING IN GOD’S GLORY — All things considered and because of the passion through writing for which she is widely known, Brown — for those who have followed her rise as an accomplished writer — has gone to great lengths to change the world, if you will.

As expected, the rave reviews, to Brown’s credit, are steadily pouring in which, by all accounts, are only adding to her immeasurable vision, one of which she has grabbed a firm hold.

Need more proof?

“I get all kinds of feedback from…I can’t believe you share so much,’ to ‘Thank you for sharing your story…it blessed me,’” Brown said. “Most times, I get positive feedback. Some people don’t believe the storyline, because by the grace of God, I don’t look like what I been through.”

And for the record, the proof in the pudding, mind you.

That’s because to her distinctly unique credit, Precious S. Brown undoubtedly has found her niche in writing.
