Sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth. (Psalm 96:1 NIV)


4-GOD BE THE GLORY

GLOBAL IMPACT — Widely known amongst his peers as “4G,” Jimmy Gathers, 44, is the CEO and Founder of GrandMaster Entertainment LLC, his Panama City, Florida-based company that has come full circle amid his more than 15 years in the music entertainment arena.

Above far as the above Biblical passage goes, Jimmy Orlando Gathers, Jr. spiritual resume is such that he customarily sings unto the Lord a new song.

Or, in his case, he raps, too.
“Aside from being in the music industry, on a personal level, it’s more about my family’s legacy,” Gathers, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, said, explaining the awe-inspiring events that have greatly afforded him the golden opportunity to function in his element. “Let me elaborate.”
Alright, then.
Have at it.
“Not only am I a musician…personally, I’m also a black man who’s not only trying to get beyond racial barriers, but I’m also trying to break generational curses that so many other black men in the black community face by not leaving an inheritance for the family and extended families.”
Given the immeasurable strides Gathers have made in recent years as a giftedly talented entertainer, it’s safe to assume his best and brightest days are well ahead of him in this, an ever-so-competitive music industry.

Widely known amongst his peers as “Jay Gathers” — which is accompanied by the nickname, “4G” — Gathers is the CEO and Founder of GrandMaster Entertainment LLC, his Panama City, Florida-based company that has come full circle amid his more than 15 years in the music entertainment arena.

Widely regarded as an accomplished gospel hip-hop and Christian hip-hop recording artist, what’s so intriguing about 4G’s achievements is that he’s going to great lengths to help advance the kingdom in ways unimaginable.

Credit the fact that he’s steadfastly on fire for God as arguably the grandest reasons why.

Because, after all, even aside from having evolved as a fixture in the Body of Christ, 4G doesn’t shy away from the notion that only what you do for Christ will last.


“(I love) providing great music, great entertainment, and giving people the message of the gospel,” said 4G, a native of Apalachicola, Florida. “More importantly, it blesses me to see people’s lives changed, because they can relate to the transparency in my music.”


A 1993 graduate of Panama City’s Bay High School, 4G earned his undergraduate degree from Florida State University. Prior to that, he was enrolled at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City, where he earned General Associate of Arts and Associate of Science Degrees in Fire Science, which ultimately gave way to his becoming a certified fire fighter.

GOD’S PLAN…GOD’S PLAN — Even aside from having evolved as a fixture in the Body of Christ, 4G doesn’t shy away from the notion that only what you do for Christ will last.

While 4G is fully aware that knowledge is power, music has always been his primary passion.

In fact, 4G’s musical gifts, by all accounts, are a part of the divine purpose for which he was created.

How else to explain why he’s had the luxury of working alongside some of the gospel music industry’s finest and most prominent personalities?

Widely regarded as an accomplished gospel hip-hop and Christian hip-hop recording artist, what’s so intriguing about 4G’s achievements is that he’s going to great lengths to help advance the kingdom in ways unimaginable.

“I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with two-time Stellar award winner Canton Jones,” said 4G, calling off names of gospel celebs as if he’s handing out diplomas. “He’s actually featured on four projects off my newly released album entitled, ‘Unqualified.’ “I also have collaborations with Mr. Del (previously of Three Six Mafia) and Born Divine of the Wu Tang Family.”

Wait. There’s more.

“I also have projects produced by well- known producers who’ve produced for other mainstream artists such as Supa Cool — Kevin Gates, Gucci Mane, Shaquille O’Neal — and Lady Trauma (Missy Elliot),” 4G said.

IN HIS OWN WORDS — “Not only am I a musician…personally, I’m also a black man who’s not only trying to get beyond racial barriers, but I’m also trying to break generational curses that so many other black men in the black community face by not leaving an inheritance for the family and extended families.”

“I’ve appeared twice on Bobby Jones Presents in Nashville, appeared on America’s Got Anointing (The Word Network) in Atlanta, performed the last two years at showcases in Las Vegas during the Stellar Awards, was an opening act for Le’Andria Johnson in Charlotte, appeared on the front cover of Soul Central Magazine (March, 2019 Edition), the front cover of Gospel USA Magazine (October, 2019 Edition), won the 2019 Holy Hip-Hop artist of the Year award in North Carolina.”

Hold up. He’s still not finished disclosing of his laundry list of accolades.

4G’s musical gifts, by all accounts, are a part of the divine purpose for which he was created. How else to explain why he’s had the luxury of working alongside some of the gospel music industry’s finest and most prominent personalities?

“I’ve been nominated for numerous other (awards) to include as the V.O.G.M.A., Steeple Awards, and Soul Central Awards,” said 4G, who has been the beneficiary of ongoing media coverage and exposure.

As for the upcoming New Year, 4G is overwhelmingly enthused, in large part because greater is on the way, he said.

“(The year) 2020 is looking very promising as I’m planning more musical events at major churches in bigger markets, radio interviews, recording more visuals and music videos, recording and releasing more new music, etc.,” 4G said.


HOLDIN’ IT DOWN 

For what it’s worth, 4G emphasized, among other things, that his primary objective is to glorify God through his musical gifts, all the while leaving a last impression as a result.

“As stated in Proverbs 13:22, a good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, but the sinner’s wealth is laid up for the righteous,” 4G said. “When my father died years ago, he didn’t leave anything behind financially that I — as his son — could be proud of. That feeling that I felt during that time in my life is one I never want my sons and daughters to feel. That is what propels me daily in my business venture.”

Eloquently stated by a giftedly talented child of God, whose spiritual resume is such that he customarily sings unto the Lord a new song.

Or, in his case, raps, too.

Given the immeasurable strides 4G have made in his recent years as a giftedly talented entertainer, it’s safe to assume his best and brightest days are well ahead of him in this, an ever-so-competitive music industry.

ARMY OF THE LORD — As Gore hinted, it was, by all accounts, because of her tenure in the military that essentially allowed her to draw close to God, a development that, much to her delight, drove her to the purpose for which she was created.

As for her competitive drive that has greatly enabled her to discover a greater version of herself, Gore credits her awe-inspiring journey as a disabled Army veteran, a stint that spans nearly two decades.

“I have always been competitive through my years of service,” Gore explained. “And so as I became closer to God, I found out what my true calling was — using the three steps (assist servant leaders to discover their purpose, exercise their power, and walk by faith to live and abundant life).

So here I am, ready to motivate, inspire and encourage servant leaders to reach their destiny.”


And boy is she putting forth a valiant effort in the process, all the while God continues to strategically enlarge her territory, in large part because of her steadfast act of obedience.

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.

That’s because aside from customarily caring for and tending to those who are in dire need of medical help, Rhodes can be appropriately deemed a woman of many hats, considering she is a gifted author and public speaker.

In May 2018, Rhodes witnessed the much-anticipated release of her first book entitled, “The Nurse Echelon: A Victorious Nurse Anthology.”

Comprised of 220 pages, Rhodes’ “The Nurse Echelon: A Victorious Nurse Anthology” is centered mostly on the spiritually-enhancing subject that is victory, most notably how victory has been commonly defined as what she describes as the overcoming of an enemy or antagonist.

“In life, many of us have had to triumph over trials and tribulations to meet a particular goal in life,” said a spokesperson for Rhodes recently-released book at Amazon.com. “Those who do not allow hardships to defeat them have been known as overcomers. When it comes to becoming a nurse or enduring a nursing career, it is known that the schooling is rigorous, the work is tough, the shifts are long and there are some nights that we cannot sleep due to thinking about the shift before. This anthology was created to inspire women, nurses and future nurses to not give up when hard times come. You see, after the rain comes the sunshine.”

A pretty empowering synopsis of a scintillating written document that will be on display when Rhodes hosts her fourth book signing, this time on Saturday, October 20 at a Tampa-area Barnes And Noble.

“We’ll also be launching my 2nd Annual Nurses Book Drop, (during which) I (introduce) 10 nurses as authors,” Rhodes said. “Last year’s event was a huge success.”

A coaching business that went into full operations in November 2016, Rhodes emphasized, among other things, that her sustained success has come to fruition, courtesy of her fervent desire to esteem and inspire others daily.

TEAM RHODES — For Rhodes, who currently resides in Tampa, her well-publicized track record as an RN has been nothing short of remarkable. That’s because aside from customarily caring for and tending to those who are in dire need of medical help, Rhodes can be appropriately deemed a woman of many hats, considering she is a gifted author and public speaker.

“Having stayed the course and achieved my own dreams, I find joy in helping others attain theirs as well.” — Michelle Greene Rhodes


A business venture that mostly accommodates women ranging in ages 28 to 48, Rhodes has been afforded the golden opportunity to put her work-related gifts on display in a variety of places, even as far as in the Bahamas.

Interestingly, in May 2019, she will be empowering women in Paris, France along with internationally-acclaimed speaker, Cheryl Wood.

“Having stayed the course and achieved my own dreams, I find joy in helping others attain theirs as well,” Rhodes said. 

Now we know why she’s fully aware of the purpose for which God has created her.

Atlanta entrepreneur Kent Osbourne’s new book recalls how he conquered prison life to walking in his God-appointed destiny

I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 NIV) 

 

While conducting an interview on Tuesday afternoon, a reporter jokingly referred to Kent Osbourne as “Dr. Osbourne.”

GOD’S DISTINGUISHED GENTLEMAN — Atlanta Businessman Kent Osbourne’s soon-to-be-released book entitled, “From Prison To Power,” an awe-inspiring, tear-jerking written document that depicts an integral portion of the life of a man whom, to his credit, has gone from being a high school dropout, to behind prison walls, to a man whom, truth be told, is presently savoring his best life now, all the while reaching back and helping others in the process.

Consequently, Osbourne found it rather amusing.

“You mean Mr.?” Osbourne said with a grin.

For the record, while the reporter was, in fact, joking, that he paid Osbourne such an intriguing pleasantry, in many aspects, carries a great deal of weight, something this accomplished Atlanta-area businessman fully welcomes.  

“I guess I am a doctor. I definitely can help people,” Osbourne told Making Headline News this week.

To grasp a thorough understanding of why Osbourne doesn’t seem to mind assuming an honorary role as a doctor, of sorts, look no further than how he has gone about providing spiritual comfort and renewed strength, particularly to those whom, like him, have witnessed God strategically try their faith in ways unimaginable.

Not only that, look no further than how Osbourne has deemed it essential to share before global platform how God miraculously rescued from the depth of a prison cell only to thrust him on arguably the most commendable platform in his young life.

In fact, look — and read — no further than Osbourne’s soon-to-be-released book entitled, “From Prison To Power: Your Prison Starts In Your Mind.”

An awe-inspiring, tear-jerking written document that depicts an integral portion of the life of a man whom, to his credit, has gone from being a high school dropout, to behind prison walls, to a man whom, truth be told, is presently savoring his best life now, all the while reaching back and helping others capture a new lease on life in the process.

For the record, it all begins in the mind, Osbourne appropriately explained.

“The single, most underlying reason I chose to produce this book is to free people out of their mental prisons that have people stuck in life and making bad choices, and to allow people to have power over every aspect of their lives once they are free,” Osbourne said.

For the record, mind you, this is about to become more thought-provoking from the mouth of an ex-prisoner who knows damn well what he’s talking about.

“You don’t have to be locked in a physical prison to be locked up,” said Osbourne, further explaining the purpose of his very first book. “You can be locked up in your mind. The physical prison is just the result from being locked up in a mental prison. I believe by me sharing my story, people will learn valuable information on what not to do in life if they want to be successful.”

Atlanta businessman Kent Osbourne defies odds as high school dropout, emerges as a successful entrepreneur

COMEBACK STORY FOR THE AGES — To grasp a thorough understanding of why Osbourne doesn’t seem to mind assuming an honorary role as a doctor, of sorts, look no further than how he has gone about providing spiritual comfort and renewed strength, particularly to those whom, like him, have witnessed God strategically try their faith in ways unimaginable.

A book Osbourne began producing back in January 2007, this Melbourne, Florida native needed somewhere in the neighborhood of roughly eight months to complete it.

Now he’s just days away from witnessing his book’s much-anticipated release — July 4 to be exact.

“I believe people will learn from my mistakes, and the goodness of God through my teachings in my book to go on to live a productive, successful, and pleasing life unto God,” Osbourne said. “I produced this book to add value to people’s lives. I want people to know that whatever you have done in life, you still can be successful. If I can do it, anybody can do it. You just have to be willing to make that change.”

ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE HIM — Osbourne has deemed it essential to share before global platform how God miraculously rescued from the depth of a prison cell only to thrust him on arguably the most commendable platform in his young life.

Much to his delight, coupled with the God-appointed calling on his life, Osbourne has, in fact, proven to be one who hasn’t merely allowed prison life to define him.

Heck, if nothing else, life behind bars proved to be the much-needed turnaround he needed to, well, turn around his life, one whereby God is yet using him for His glory.

As expected, the feedback for a book that has yet to hit the market is already garnering favorable feedback, said Osbourne, the proud owner and CEO of K.O Trucking LLC, Generation Changers International LLC, and Prison To Power Inc.

Not to mention a great book by a great businessman and a great motivator, not to mention a great ambassador for the kingdom of God, someone this modern-day church era surely needs for a time such as now.

IN THAT ORDER — As expected, the feedback for a book that has yet to hit the market is already garnering favorable feedback, said Osbourne, the proud owner and CEO of K.O Trucking LLC, Generation Changers International LLC, and Prison To Power Inc.

“I wasn’t supposed to make it,” Osbourne said. “Lost both parents before the age of 10. Homelessness. High school dropout. Abused and sold drugs. In and out of jail. Two prison sentences.”

Still, even after arguably the most trying and chaotic season of his life, Osbourne had sense enough to realize that God was there all the time.

Yep. Too late, devil. You should’ve killed him when you had the chance.

Today, unlike never before, belongs to God, as evidenced by his life’s dramatic comeback for the ages.

COME AS YOU ARE — If nothing else, life behind bars proved to be the much-needed turnaround Osbourne needed to turn around his life, one whereby God is yet using him for His glory.

“I found a greater purpose, although I suffered so much pain,” Osbourne said. “I realized if I wanted better out of life, I had to change and that change started with changing my mindset. I give all the glory and honor to God, my Father, Who gave me the knowledge to go from prison To power. I say to anybody out there that is tired of their current circumstances like I was and want to change, ‘It is possible. If I did it, you can do it. Anybody can do it.’

“You just have to be willing to make that change and it will happen,” Osbourne continued. “I sit here today as the owner of K.O. Trucking LLC, Generation Changers International, and founder of Prison To Power Inc. non-profit. I’m now building my brand as a motivational speaker and transformational speaker, motivating and inspiring others to be the best versions of themselves, teaching them how to go from the prison in their minds to living a life full of abundance. I made it. I’m so glad I made it. I made it through. You can to.”

Well said, Dr. Osbourne.

Houston businesswoman Kimberly Barrow impacting lives, fulfilling her long-awaited dream as owner of medical clinic

WALKING IN HER PURPOSE — At the tender age of 32, Kimberly Barrow is owner and chief executive officer of Kimberly Cares, LLC — a Houston-based family health clinic that was created by following her stint as a registered nurse that spanned nearly a decade. Located at 5751 Blythewood Suite, 700 in Houston, Kimberly Cares’ primary mission is geared largely toward assisting families without adequate access to affordable health care.

DALLAS — As the old catchphrase goes, “They do things big in Texas.”

Even as a native Floridian, accomplished 32-year-old medical professional Kimberly Barrow, MSN, APRN, NP-C has embrace this notion wholeheartedly.

“I was driven by a need to fill the void in our communities by creating a care model that is more personal and affordable,” Barrow, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said while explaining her competitive drive for delving off in the ever-so-competitive world of entrepreneurship. “I like the autonomy I have as a solo provider.”

The independence to which Barrow is alluding is her well-established business as owner and chief executive officer of Kimberly Cares, LLC, a Houston-based family health clinic that was created following her notable stint as a registered nurse, a tenure that spanned nearly a decade.

Located at 5751 Blythewood Suite, 700 in Houston, Kimberly Cares’ primary mission is geared largely toward assisting families without adequate access to affordable health care.

“For many, it is the difference between groceries or a $150 clinic visit,” said a spokesperson for Kimberly Cares, LLC under a detailed description of Barrow’s newly-established clinic at http://www.kcaresmore.com.

THIS IS WHERE IT’S HAPPENING — “For many, it is the difference between groceries or a $150 clinic visit,” said a spokesperson for Kimberly Cares, LLC under a detailed description of her business at http://www.kcaresmore.com.

Which, as a result, essentially sums up why Barrow has emphasized that her target patient populations are uninsured children and adults, college students, and small business owners, just to name a few.

“I am not consumed by the financial politics or motivations of corporate medicine,” said Barrow, who is credentialed through the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners Certification Program and is a member of several other professional organizations. “Instead, I am able to provide access to basic health services at a rate that most everyone can afford, which has a direct impact on the welfare and quality of life for the people in my community.”

WHAT ABOUT KIMBERLY CARES? www.kcaresmore.com 

To her uniquely distinct credit, Barrow certainly boasts the credentials and educational mechanics to function and dwell in the divine purpose for which God has created her.

A native of Jacksonville, Florida, Barrow earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing from The University of Central Florida. Consequently, she advanced her education by earning a Master’s of Science in Nursing from the University of Texas Health and Science Center in Houston — further proving why they do things big in Texas.

SHE CALLED IT — “I (had) always planned to have my own practice,” said Barrow, when asked who inspired her to enter entrepreneurship through her area of study. “I grew up in a single parent household with four siblings and very limited resources.”

“I (had) always planned to have my own practice,” said Barrow, when asked who inspired her to enter entrepreneurship through her selected area of study. “I grew up in a single parent household with four siblings and very limited resources.”

As it turned out, it seemed that was the motivation she needed to diligently working toward making her dream a reality.

To her credit, Barrow has assumed the business owner label for a little more than eight months. And given the immense strides she’s made since opening her very own medical practice, it’s safe to assume that Kimberly Cares, LLC’s best and brightest days are well of ahead of it.

“We didn’t have health insurance because of the cost,” Barrow said of her upbringing. “Also, as fairly new RN, I found myself in a situation where I was expecting a baby without health coverage or the ability to qualify for private health plan. It was a struggle to the say the least, but I had a mother that was business savvy and always focused on being self-sufficient, so that’s where I was first exposed to the importance of business ownership.”

The rest, as they say, was history.

AWWWWWWW — A native of Jacksonville, Florida, Barrow earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing from The University of Central Florida. Consequently, she advanced her education by earning a Master’s of Science in Nursing from the University of Texas Health and Science Center in Houston — further proving why they do things big in Texas.

To her credit, Barrow has assumed the business owner label for a little more than eight months. And, given the immense strides she’s made since opening her very own medical clinic, it’s safe to assume that Kimberly Cares, LLC’s best and brightest days are well of ahead of it.

“Adequate representation, especially for the youth in our community is essential,” said Barrow, explaining why it is essential to esteem others daily through her business venture and purpose. “I have a non-traditional appearance as far as corporate America and this American culture in general is concerned. I need other young, minority women to know that they too can own no matter how society perceives us a people.

“If we can own more businesses and begin to re-invest and create jobs in our communities, we can become our own solution to many of the problems that plague our communities.”

Remarkably and well stated.

Talk about doing things big in Texas.

Are Florida-based business owners Sean and Dawn Bradford Herbalife International’s best kept secrets?

TEAM BRADFORD — It is, by all accounts, due in large part to Florida-based business owners Sean and Dawn Bradfords’ notable vision of enjoying healthy lifestyles that has greatly enabled them to become a power couple, of sorts, as accomplished independent distributors for Herbalife International.

Sean. Dawn.

Dawn. Sean.

While their ages are separated by nearly eight years, one thing is for certain.

This amorous couple is virtually inseparable.

Sean Bradford, in fact, is 41 years of age and will celebrate another birthday in October. His prized companion, Dawn Bradford, on the other hand, is 48 and will celebrate Year No. 49 in December.

Collectively, the two steadfastly prove that age isn’t merely a factor, especially as it pertains to possessing and savoring authentic love and health.

It is, by all accounts, due in large part to the Bradfords’ notable vision of enjoying healthy lifestyles that has greatly enabled them to become a power couple, of sorts, most notably as accomplished independent distributors for Herbalife International.

A longstanding global multi-level marketing corporation that develops, markets and sells nutrition supplements, weight management, sports nutrition and personal-care products, Herbalife was founded by longtime entrepreneur Mark Hughes in 1980 and employs approximately 7,800 people worldwide.

For the Bradfords, this Satellite Beach, Florida-based couple has been affiliated with Herbalife since May 2012 and, to their distinctly unique credit, they are reaping the benefits of their sustained success.

WE’RE ALL IN — Aside from the plethora of star-studded celebrity athletes, the Bradfords emphasized that they have on display Herbalife products for individuals of all ages.

“We use that competitive edge to keep us moving forward and motivated,” said Dawn Bradford whom, like her husband, allowed her competitive drive through her past achievements as a prep athlete to fuel her drive to delve off into entrepreneurship. “We understand it takes hard work, commitment, and drive to get to where you want to be in business and life in general. When you have the vision and the why, the how will show itself.”

ALL STAR COMPANY — Moreover, amongst the pivotal testimonies surrounding Herbalife and its assortment of efficient nutrition products is that arguably some of the best athletes on the planet have come to embrace and sponsor this internationally-acclaimed company and what it has to offer, according to www.sports.herbalife.com. Pictured is Seattle Seahawks All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman.

And here’s the caution: there are no quick fixes, the Bradfords are quick to point out.

“We don’t rely on a quick fix or a temporary solution,” said Sean Bradford whom, along with his wife, conducts what they call a free-and-open-to-the-public 3 Fit Clubs Weekly with their business partner and fellow team member Coach Shantel Tillman. “We want people to understand that this is truly a life-changing and lifestyle long term endeavor. How we fuel our bodies is in direct correlation with how we feel, walk, talk, and interact with others. It is not about a specific look or physical aspect. It’s about an overall feeling and doing your best every single day. It all goes hand in hand and works together.”

MAKING MAJOR STRIDES — For the Bradfords, this Satellite Beach, Florida-based couple has been affiliated with Herbalife since May 2012 and, to their distinctly unique credit, they are reaping the benefits of their sustained success.

Much like Sean. And Dawn. And Dawn. And Sean.

Saint Augustine, Florida-area Pastor Lonnie Bauer of The Torch Church: ‘I’ve come too far to go backwards’

WE ARE FAMILY — Raised in a Christian-oriented environment to James Robert and Yvonne Jane Palmer, Florida-based Psstor Lonnie Bauer is one of nine children, all of whom witnessed and the importance of being responsible and maximizing their potential, considering her father owned a well-established company called, Fombell Fabricating.  Interesting enough, Bauer’s identical twin sister, Lori, is whom she deemed arguably one of her grandest supporters, a trend that has only strengthen now that she has graciously accepted her calling to lead the people of God.

Within the first few minutes of conversing with Lonnie Bauer, it would become increasingly easy to admire and figuratively embrace her.

Admire her for signature smile.

Admire her for her overall disposition on life.

Admire the way this big-hearted woman speaks of her beloved family and how she steadfastly goes above and beyond to esteem others highly than herself.

Most importantly, it is, by all accounts, a foregone conclusion that one would easily become drawn to admire Bauer, in large part because her reputation is such that she’s destined to live and dwell on the larger side of God.

STANDING STRONG FOR CHRIST — A proud native of the rural Pennsylvania town of Fombell — which is approximately 40 minutes North of Pittsburgh — Bauer is the Senior Pastor of The historic Torch Church that is based in Saint Augustine, Florida.

“I was born in 1963 and I am now 54 years of age, but feel younger and stronger,” Bauer told Making Headline News this week.

To grasp a thorough understanding of why Bauer feels “younger and stronger,” look no further than how she diligently journeys through life, observing it from God’s perspective.

A non-denominational church that is located in the heart of Palencia, a popular establishment in Saint Augustine, Bauer’s congregation meets regularly for worship at nearby Palencia Elementary School, located at 355 Palencia Village Drive.

In addition, The Torch Church’s services are streamed live at new.livestream.com/thetorch.

LOG ON HERE TO CARRY THE TORCH: www.thetorchchurch.com

For Bauer, whose notable pastoral tenure is such that she’s overwhelmingly passionate about ministry, she sensed all along that God was strategically positioning and equipping her to lead His sheep, considering the assortment of key values instilled in her by parents were comprised mostly of being consistent, coupled with hard work and, above all, demonstrating a loving, close-knit relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

“And (we were taught to) keep family close,” Bauer explained. “My dad taught us to win in life and that you have to work hard and you have to dream big. He was a dreamer and he thought big.”

CLINGING TO UNWAVERING FAITH — For Bauer, pastoral tenure is such that she’s overwhelmingly passionate about ministry, she sensed all along that God was strategically positioning and equipping her to lead His sheep, considering the assortment of key values my parents taught were comprised mostly of being consistent, coupled with hard work and, above all, demonstrate a loving, close-knit relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

All of which practically sums us why this progressive, thriving woman of the cloth has greatly become the hard worker and big dreamer for which she has become widely known throughout the Body of Christ.

For what it’s worth, while Bauer’s upbringing was center mostly on church and a whole lot of it, her keen knowledge, wisdom and perseverance for leading God’s people were discovered years ago when she delved off into entrepreneurship as a successful salon owner.

“I started to ministry when I opened up a hair salon and was praying and ministering to clients and was not even aware of it at the time,” Bauer recalled.

CREATED TO LEAD GOD’S PEOPLE — For what it’s worth, while Bauer’s upbringing was center mostly on church and a whole lot of it, her keen knowledge for leading God’s people was discovered years ago when she delved off into entrepreneurship as a salon owner.

Never mind that she admittedly wasn’t filled with the Holy Ghost while running what undoubtedly was a booming business. All she knew at the time, really, was that she had a relationship with Jesus.

Which, of course, looking back on it all, that was sufficient enough evidence that this young, Godly woman was destined to accomplish great and mighty things in the kingdom, all while fortifying unyielding agape love in the process.

“I was not filled with the spirit at that time, but I loved Jesus and would speak about Him throughout my day,” Bauer said. “I had a very successful business for 15 years.”

Consequently, at the tender age of 22, Bauer crossed paths with Cameron Bauer, whom God strategically handpicked for her as a lifelong companion — this after the couple has courted for seven years.

Like most married couples, Bauer and her husband endured their share of challenges and obstacles and, consequently, the enemy attempted time and again to attack her body and send her to premature death.

Still, through it all, God had other immeasurable ideas tailored made exclusively for Bauer, His beloved Woman Servant whom He had strategically set aside for His use.

Despite her faith having been tried and tested in ways unimaginable, Bauer was determined to hold fast the profession of her faith without wavering.

“I’ve had many up and downs, although I’ve impacted many lives for the kingdom,” Bauer said. “I knew the enemy wasn’t liking this at all. I fell so short in being called to pastor as I started to put ministry first and forgot my family along the way, even though they were involved.”

‘CA– USE I’M HAPPY — With her faith being tried and tested in ways unimaginable, Bauer was determined to hold fast the profession of her faith without wavering.

Having weathered arguably what seemed to be the darkest hours of her life and pastoral tenure — which seemed at a crossroads at one point in time — today, unlike never before, Bauer’s faith walk is stronger, in large part because she diligently stuck with God.

Even when it seemed she couldn’t trace Him.

“So here I am, seven-and-a-half-years later with an awesome team of committed saints who are also called by the Lord for such a time as this,” Bauer said. “I would not be where I am if it was not for John and Linda Sailer, who stood with me when no else would, I never want to go back to that place, but I can look back to see how far I have come and, Wow! I’ve come too far to go backwards.”

Talk about a spiritual victory speech for the ages.

Drs. Apostle Andrew and Aprelle Smith’s KCI-Worldwide having a global impact while steadily advancing the kingdom

And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. (John 12:32)

 

Just after sunrise Friday morning, Dr. Andrew Smith took to his Facebook and installed a rather inspiring, thought-provoking post.

Said Smith, a longtime Apostle, to the masses: I would pay any price that I have to in order to be in the presence of greatness! To be around bosses, champions, those winning! To be in their presence….there isn’t a price large enough to hold me back!

To grasp a thorough understanding of why Smith deemed it essential to jumpstart his day with an awe-inspiring, provocative social media post, look no further than the immense strides he and his wife, Dr. Apostle Aprelle Mitchell Smith, have made through their ministry in recent years.

“When we first started in ministry, we did not have any support at all,” Apostle Smith told Making Headline News this week. “It was believed that we were too young, or perhaps too inexperienced to begin a new ministerial work.”

To their credit, the Smiths were determined not to buy into what undoubtedly was unfavorable and discouraging feedback, particularly as it pertained to establishing a solid walk with their Creator.

Instead, they steadfastly consulted God for a sense of direction unlike never before and, for their efforts — coupled with their collective acts of obedience — they are reaping the benefits of their labor.

Both of whom are natives of Chicago who hold doctorates on Theology, Apostle and Mrs. Smith are the God-appointed “Generals” behind Kingdom Centers International (or KCI-Worldwide), a globally acclaimed ministry they started in 2012 approximately a decade after Apostle Smith admittedly had given up the “street life” to pursue an authentic relationship with God.

A progressively thriving ministry that the Smiths labeled a “movement” during an exclusive interview, KCI-Worldwide is geared largely toward promoting a strong relationship and worship unto God which, according to its founders, are key components in the advancement for their ministry.

In addition, KCI-Worldwide also implements a strong presence of teaching discipleship to the people, in large part so that they become knowledgeable with regards to their walk with God — especially as it relates to Biblical standards and principals, according to a spokesperson for KCI-Worldwide at http://www.kci.world/about-kci-worldwide.html.

Moreover, KCI-Worldwide strives diligently to promote establishing what the Smiths describe as a “purposeful relationship” with God aside from anything else.

“We strongly empower the body of believers to know God on a more personal level,” Apostle Smith explained. “This personal relationship of knowing God, understanding God, and walking with Him can be accomplished as each believer studies the Word of God and communicates with our Heavenly Father through personal prayer and worship. KCI-Worldwide teaches Kingdom messages, focusing on how to walk in God’s Glory during this End-Time.”

Ahhhhh….the End Time.

Now this is where things become increasingly intriguing now that this remarkably impressive ministry is starting to become a massive fixture throughout the Body of Christ, most notably from a universal standpoint.

“We have many testimonies of face-to-face encounters with the Lord, Angelic visitations, and trips to heaven,” Apostle Smith explained. “We have testimonies of financial breakthroughs, miraculous provision, and divine protection.”

Interesting enough, a few of these life-enhancing, tear-jerking testimonies have unfolded right before his eyes, Apostle Smith is quick to acknowledge.

Take, for instance, how for approximately 16 years, when his wife was stricken by an uncontrollable “blood issue” that according to Apostle Smith, was reminiscent to that of the woman with the issue of blood.

Both of whom are natives of Chicago, Apostle and Mrs. Smith are the God-appointed “Generals” behind Kingdom Centers International (or KCI-Worldwide), a globally acclaimed they started in 2012 after Apostle Smith admittedly had given up the “street life” to pursue an authentic relationship with God.

“(She was) having to wear diapers, adult-depends, and over 20,000 sanitary napkins,” Apostle Smith recalled. “This began in her adolescent years into her marital status that almost threatened the consummating of marriage.”

But God…

“Having this issue for 16 years, and then being healed miraculously by an angelic visitation of angels ascending and descending in and out of Aprelle’s body the morning before surgery, God had miraculously healed Aprelle after 16 long, life threatening years,” Apostle Smith said.

THE APOSTLE SPEAKS — “We strongly empower the body of believers to know God on a more personal level,” Apostle Smith explained. “This personal relationship of knowing God, understanding God, and walking with Him can be accomplished as each believer studies the Word of God and communicates with our Heavenly Father through personal prayer and worship. KCI-Worldwide teaches Kingdom messages, focusing on how to walk in God’s Glory during this End-Time.”

It is, by all accounts, because of the appropriate formation of their ministry, coupled with their willingness to step outside of their spiritual comfort zone — the Smiths are pillars of the historic Church of God In Christ — that God not only healed Aprelle of her unlikely condition but, most of all, He has bestowed upon this Holy Ghost-filled couple an assortment of supernatural blessings through KCI-Worldwide.

In addition, Apostle Smith has produced a slew of books, including three that have officially been released:  “21 Century: Woman With the Issue Of Blood,” a written document  Dr. Aprelle, “Pain Of The Prophetic,” written by Apostle Smith, and “Holy Ghost Manual,” a project in which they co-authored.

As for future kingdom-based projects, 20 additional books are on the horizon and are “about to drop,” Apostle Smith said.

“My whole life — even before I was born — has prepared me for my ministry,” Aprelle said. “My mother almost went into labor, while playing the organ at a church service. I was literally born into this thing. I knew it was not by any coincidence that I had the upbringing that I’ve been fortunate to have. My life story was the positioning for ministry.”

Now that she and her husband have managed to weather arguably the greatest of obstacles, their devout faith have greatly empowered them to educate in ways that are impacting and changing lives around the globe — one life at a time.

“Due to the nature of the testimony, we had to seek the Lord for wisdom and strategy,” said Apostle Smith whom, along with his wife, presently resides in Orlando, Florida. “This allows us today to teach those same wisdom principles and kingdom strategies to others.

According to the Smith, a majority of their training includes (but isn’t limited to):

  • Learn Their Purpose
  • Tap Into Supernatural Dreams
  • Develop Effective Leadership Characteristics
  • Place Angels On Assignment
  • Keep The Vessel Healthy For God’s Use
  • Prepare For Marriage
  • Keep A Healthy Marriage
  • Start A Business/Ministry
  • Use Marketing As The Tool For Expansion
  • Invest: 1 Timothy 5:8
  • And hundreds more topics God has imparted in them to teach and train others worldwide.

A internationally-acclaimed “movement” that is just five years removed from its notable inception, it’s safe assume that the KCI-Worldwide is just what the Body of Christ needs.

After all, that practically sums why God thought it necessary to endorse it back in 2012.

“At KCI-Worldwide, miracles, signs and wonders are manifested as financial breakthroughs, miracle money in bank accounts (or supernatural bank transfers), HIV/AIDS healed, cancer eradicated, high blood pressure healed, broken bones mended, breast cancer healed, asthma and bronchitis testimonies of being made whole, demon oppressed,” Apostle Smith said. “There is a great work to be done for the Kingdom of God. This is an assignment that Apostle Andrew and Apostle Aprelle humbly accepted.”
