Houston-area author Nicole Michelle advancing the kingdom mightily through her immeasurable writing gift


And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose; For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters; And those He predestined, He also called; those He called, He also justified; those He justified, He also glorified; What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:28-31 KJV)


PROVERBS 31 AFFECT 

WOMAN OF MANY HATS — Once a catalyst in the Corporate America sector — during which she assumed the role as an Executive Director with an international public accounting firm, which was accompanied by a multiple six-figure income — Nicole Michelle has proven to be a crafty author, of sorts, given she has assembled three books to date. Three of her most prized written works: “Overcoming Mediocrity,” “Prayers Of The Righteous That Availeth Much,” and “COMMON WEALTH: Looks Just Like You.”

DALLAS — Prayer. Purpose. Power.

To her distinctly unique credit, these are just a trio of spiritual superlatives that greatly sum up who Nicole Michelle is.

According to a detailed introduction at https://nicolemichelle.com/, Nicole Michelle is widely regarded as an accomplished evangelist, one who has been appropriately dubbed a “multi- dimensional” Proverbs 31 woman whom, much to her delight, firmly believes when much is given, even more is required.

For Nicole Michelle, each of her awe-inspiring books is a thing of beauty, in large part because these projects are steadily having a massive impact, particularly in the Body of Christ.

“In 2012, I went through a prayer desert where I literally could not pray,” Nicole Michelle told Making Headline News this week. “(I’m) a prayer warrior and an intercessor….but I could not pray.  The only words I could utter were, ‘Lord, bless the mess.’ That is what my life was at that time, a mess. But God turned my mess into my message.”

Interestingly, what this Christian-based author had ultimately come to discover was that uttering “Lord, bless my mess” was a sufficient enough dialogue with the Father that would give way to her acquiring the much-anticipated breakthrough she so desperately sought at the time.

IN HER OWN WORDS — “’Prayers Of the Righteous That Availeth Much’ is dedicated to the believers, individuals, intercessors, and prayer warriors who struggle to pray when the cares of life become overwhelming,” Nicole Michelle said.

“God spoke to me and said, ‘If you could not pray as the prayer warrior and intercessor that you are, what about my other children?’” Nicole Michelle recalled. “God downloaded over 350 prayer topics to me and I released my first volume of 110 prayer topics in February 2017.”

Not to be outdone, it was because Nicole Michelle had exemplified unwavering faith that God, in turn, ceremoniously bestowed upon her the fruit of her labor by allowing her to release the sophomore volume of financial devotionals in April 2019, a development that ironically unfolded on her 45th birthday.

And just like that, she had steadfastly found her niche in this, the ever-so-competitive authorship industry.

“I wanted to circumvent any other prayer desert,” said Nicole Michelle, explaining in detailed the purpose for her books. “My books are meant to be catalysts that allow individuals to jump start their prayer life through daily devotional time with God.

“’Prayers Of the Righteous That Availeth Much’ is dedicated to the believers, individuals, intercessors, and prayer warriors who struggle to pray when the cares of life become overwhelming,” Nicole Michelle added.

As for “COMMON WEALTH: Looks Just Like You,” this Houston-area author emphasized, among other things, that this project was designed to allow individuals to become what she appropriately describes as their “best financial self,” a rather unique and essential disposition that aligns with 3 John 1:2, she acknowledged.

A beloved mother, mentor, executive business woman, humanitarian, philanthropist, publisher, and an independent certified speaker, Nicole Michelle’s authorship talents were initially put on display sometime Fall 2016.

Subsequently, her first volume was released in Spring 2017, followed by the ensuing volume approximately two years later.

To her credit, she’s since been as good as advertised as a rising and gifted author.

To God be the glory.

“I want the readers to know that they can stay connected to the Father through prayer and that they are able to tap into God’s power and achieve the lifestyle of health, wealth, and abundance that God has desired for us as believers,” said Nicole Michelle, explaining the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience through her books.”

As expected, the overall feedback since the release of her books has been favorable, for the most part — not to mention spiritually empowering.

“I have had First Ladies tell me that the prayer devotional literally saved their marriage, because they could spend their devotional time in prayer and privately deal with their issues and concerns by getting naked before God,” Nicole Michelle said. “Love covers a multitude of faults. God knows the evidence, but He conceals it from the enemy and your enemies. God also has a witness protection program that will change your identity once you have been purged and cleansed with His Word.”

“I want the readers to know that they can stay connected to the Father through prayer and that they are able to tap into God’s power and achieve the lifestyle of health, wealth, and abundance that God has desired for us as believers,” said Nicole Michelle explaining the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience through her books.”

Additional books are forthcoming, said Nicole Michelle, a native of Missouri City, Texas.

She has, in fact, announced the future releases of four devotional volumes that will be centered on “Faith, Family, Healing and, Deliverance,” she said.

As expected, the overall feedback since the release of her books has been favorable, for the most part — not to mentioning spiritually empowering.

“My tests have become my testimonies,” Nicole Michelle said. “God has given me a ministry of transparency and allowed me to share with others the knowledge that I have garnered over the years. Knowledge is power and it is important that we utilize the resources around us to tap into that power.

Additional books are forthcoming, said Nicole Michelle, a native of Missouri City, Texas.

“My gift has made room for me and allowed me to share the good news of the Gospel across this nation.”

Thanks in large part to:  Prayer. Purpose. Power.

Which, of course, are just a trio of spiritual superlatives that greatly sum up who Nicole Michelle is.

Houston real estate extraordinaire Jacqueline Briscoe helping home buyers achieve the ‘American Dream’

NEW IMAGE, BIG DREAMS 

DESTINY STEPS — For Jacqueline Briscoe, a native of Houston, she has been afforded the golden opportunity of helping homebuyers achieve and savor the America dream for the past decade and-a-half as the catalyst for New Image Realty.

DALLAS — When Jacqueline Briscoe advanced her education at the University of Houston, she deemed it essential to declare Communications as her major.

But amongst the notable factors she had ultimately come to discover was that God had other strategic ideas on her behalf.
For Briscoe, it was an awe-inspiring endeavor, one that eventually had come wrapped up in the unique gift through real estate.
“I have always been a people person and an advocate for the underdog,” Briscoe told Making Headline News this week. “So to help people who never thought they could buy a home walk into their season and get the American dream of home ownership, I am so grateful to be a part of that to make their dreams come true.”
A native of Houston, Briscoe has been afforded the golden opportunity of helping home buyers achieve and savor the “America dream” for the past decade and-a-half as the catalyst for New Image Realty.

Located at 16770 Imperial Valley Drive in the greater Houston metropolitan area, Briscoe has evolved as fixture in what undoubtedly is one of the country’s most competitive professions.

In a nutshell, part of her mission as a thriving real estate profession is routinely going to great lengths to ensure that her clients can appropriately encounter the proverbial unthinkable.


“(I love to) help people who didn’t know it was possible to buy a home,” said Briscoe, introducing her longstanding mission as only she could. “(I love) to show people (that even though) you can be single, you might have always rented before, or you are a newlywed couple or had credit struggles, I can normally help them become homeowners.”


To her credit, her immeasurable track record is such that she’s aided a number home buyers defy arguably the greatest of odds, particularly when pressing and navigating their way through the sometimes dreaded home-buying process.

“We have a program whereby when people are buying a new home, I give back a portion of my commission so when you buy a new home you won’t have a house note for at least two months,” said Briscoe, referring to her company’s ‘First Month On Us’ program.

Interestingly, Briscoe’s keen entrepreneurship reputation is such that she’s become thoroughly committed to showing her clients that she has a heart for people.

“I am with you from start to finish,” Briscoe said. “I have a background as a former loan officer and credit restoration adviser.”

In addition, Briscoe has spent a considerable amount of time, working as a new home consultant for home builders, she acknowledged.

“So I have a full knowledge of the entire realm of the real estate industry,” Briscoe said, adding that her strategic, featured motto is “Walk into your season.”

For what it’s worth, this rising giant in the real estate industry is surely walking in the divine season for which God has created her.

So much for studying Communications at the U of H.

“Let me help you achieve the American Dream through home ownership,” said Briscoe, adding that arguably her greatest inspirations are: Miko Branch, CEO of Miss Jessie’s, and Shannon Battle, Founder and Director of Family Services of America.


ALL AMERICAN REALTOR 

HOLDING IT DOWN — To her credit, Briscoe’s immeasurable track record is such that she’s aided homebuyers defy arguably the greatest of odds, particularly when pressing and navigating their way through the sometimes dreaded home-buying process.

Much to her delight, Briscoe will make a few public appearances in the foreseeable future, during which she will continue to educate the masses on home buying opportunities.

“Remember, a credit (score) as low as 580 and two months no of house payment,” Briscoe said.

Sounding very much like the authentic real estate professional for which she is widely known.

Dallas/Fort Worth author Sandi D. Johnson’s ‘Collateral Beauty’ is a thing of beauty


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


GODLY THING OF BEAUTY 

GOD’S PLAN — Sandi D. Johnson’s desire to compose the newly-produced entitled “My Story, My Journey: Collateral Beauty” has come full circle. It is a collaborative written work she assembled with other authors.

LEWISVILLE, Texas — For Sandi D. Johnson, June 5, 2018 essentially changed the overall landscape of her life.

“Last year on June 5, I did a Facebook Live (segment) on collateral beauty,” Johnson told Making Headline News this week. “I was inspired by the movie and how Will Smith’s character became paralyzed by grief and begin to seek out answers. The results were that in life’s toughest, most heart-wrenching situations, there are some lessons and blessings. So, the term collateral beauty has been in my spirit ever since.”
All things considered, such an awe-inspiring sequence is what fueled Johnson’s desire to compose the newly-produced entitled, “My Story, My Journey: Collateral Beauty,” a collaborative written work she assembled with other authors.

The book’s official launch will take place on August 3 at Sway’s Room in nearby DeSoto, Texas, during which Johnson will be the keynote speaker.

Also, Johnson announced that a retreat is planned for some time next year and will called, “My Story, My journey: Collateral Beauty Retreat,” during which she will be a presenter.

As Johnson explained, her company EnVision Your Life, L.L.C., also has played an integral part of her quest to write a book that figures to become a fixture during what many have dubbed “perilous times.”

As far as demonstrating faith to compose her newly-assembled written document, Johnson acknowledged that it was, by all accounts, a vision to which God introduced her early this year through “Grace to Recover,” a book she co-authored with Shirley LaTour.

“My company has a proven multi-step process that produces vision boards, which produces results and are in action,” Johnson explained.  “As a result of the EnVision Board Experience, the individual will leave with a visual representation of their vision, futurist mindset, and three concrete goals that will be in motion with the help of a dream keeper relationship. The experiences are done virtually or in person. So on my vision board, the words ‘Put it in writing’ as a personal goal was to author a book.  I cannot motivate others to reach goals and not move on my own.”

To her credit, Johnson has certainly moved mightily, thus exercised her faith in ways unimaginable, particularly with regards to assembling “My Story, My Journey: Collateral Beauty.”

Johnson announced that a retreat is planned for some time next year and will called, “My Story, My journey: Collateral Beauty Retreat,” during which she will be a presenter.

“After experiencing the death of my stepfather, mother, and grandfather in a period of like 16 months, I was able to find some beauty in that situation,” said Johnson, when asked what was the single, most underlying reason she chose to produce her new book. “The heartbreak and grief were purposed to give me the ability to reframe any situation. I want others to know that not only can they survive those hard places, but it is part of their purpose path.”

As far as demonstrating faith to compose her newly-assembled written document, Johnson acknowledged that it was, by all accounts, a vision to which God introduced her early this year through “Grace to Recover,” a book she co-authored with Shirley LaTour.


“This goal was in no way, shape, or form one that was easy to obtain,” Johnson recalled. “You see, I struggled with spelling since childhood, which feeds into the irrational thought pattern that I could not write. As a child, Thursday nights at my house growing up was a struggle due to the Friday spelling test. We would sing, rap, write, and dance to my spelling words only for me to barely pass the test. In college, I would procrastinate when assigned any paper out of this belief that I could not write.”


But God Whom, much to Johnson’s delight, still had a divine purpose for her life, most notably through the competitive world of authorship.

That, of course, meant she had to become accustomed to spelling and writing — and do it efficiently.

“A few years ago, I expressed to my author friend (MeLisa Calhoun Collins) that I could not write,” Johnson said. “I would send her something I had written for her to read. It was at that point, she informed me I would never say that statement again. She has been my editor and can take my sometimes not-so-well-written thought and fix it to make sense. She is my writing dream keeper.”

“This fear almost stopped this project,” said Johnson, who’s currently working on two more anthologies. “As a vision coach, I tell my clients just to leap and that is what I did with a blindfold on. And 14 other women joined me on this journey and shared their stories of finding meaning in either the death of a loved one or divorce. Some were hit with both at the same time.”

And today unlike never before, Johnson has emerged as purpose driven and accomplished author, who’s yet walking fervently in her purpose — with God, her Helper, leading the way.

Talk about a massive thing of beauty.

“This fear almost stopped this project,” said Johnson, who’s currently working on two more anthologies. “As a vision coach, I tell my clients just to leap and that is what I did with a blindfold on. And 14 other women joined me on this journey and shared their stories of finding meaning in either the death of a loved one or divorce. Some were hit with both at the same time.”

For Johnson, it all goes back to June 5 of last year.

As Johnson explained, her company EnVision Your Life, L.L.C., also has played an integral part of her quest to write a book that figures to become a fixture during what many have dubbed “perilous times.”

“This year on June 5 — exactly one year after the Facebook Live on my weekly broadcast — ‘Living Life On Purpose,’ — was launched,” said Johnson, alluding to yet another published project. “This was not planned, and it was only realized as I casually strolled my memories and the connection was made. It was as if God was blowing His daughter a kiss and putting His seal of approval on this project.

“When you leap without knowing the full plan, it is a faith walk, and all credit has to be given to our Father up above,” Johnson continued. “If He gave you the project, He will supplies the tools to complete it.”

Not to mention, change the overall landscape of your life in the process.

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


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


FREEDOM OF EXCELLENCE 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

THUS SAID THE LORD…

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

In case you’ve forgotten.

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

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

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

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

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

Yep. That’s just like God.

Houston author Brittney Carr escapes suicide time and again, she explains in her new book


“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)


DALLAS — As far as Brittney Carr is concerned, it literally goes without saying.

That is, she undoubtedly thanks God for her husband, Darius Carr, who unquestionably has been her grandest supporter ever since God has joined them together.

Consider, for instance, how in October 2018, during which God had strategically given Brittney Carr the awe-inspiring vision to make her authorship debut, courtesy of her book entitled, F.E.A.R., the acronym that stands for False Evidence Appearing Real.


SURROUNDED BY ANGELS

DESTINY STEPS — In October 2018, God had strategically given Houston author Brittney Carr the awe-inspiring vision to make her authorship debut, courtesy of her book entitled, F.E.A.R., the acronym that stands for False Evidence Appearing Real.

A 79-page project that Brittney Carr needed somewhere in the neighborhood of three months to assemble, F.E.A.R. is less than two months removed from having made its ceremonious release on the market.

During an interview this week with Making Headline News, Brittney Carr credited her beloved companion for having fueled her desire to compose a book that figures to help advance the kingdom — much sooner than later.


“God gave me the vision to write this book one day when my husband told me that I needed to tell people my story and that I would help many people with my testimony. So God told me to just start writing. So I started to write my story.” — Texas Author Brittney Carr 


And what a remarkably compelling and thought-provoking story it is.

PURCHASE BRITTNEY CARR’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/F-R-False-Evidence-Appearing/dp/1795824484/

An emotionally-drive, tear-jerking story that recalls how this brilliant author had had been spiritually and emotionally incarcerated to the point, during which she had attempted suicide an unprecedented four times during a span of six months, Carr’s F.E.A.R. is widely deemed an inspirational, yet true story, one that serves as an instant motivator for anyone who has gone through arguably the toughest of life’s trials and tribulations.

“Nothing is ever as bad as it seems, but it’s the paralyzing F.E.A.R. that difficult circumstances in life continually produce in our minds that cause us to go to pieces when faced with extreme adversities,” said a spokesperson for Carr’s book at Amazon.com. “The mental, emotional, and spiritual effects can be catastrophic or sometimes even fatal. This book was designed to help the millions of people worldwide that are currently going through something very difficult in life such as physical health issues, mental illness, financial problems, anxiety, addiction, heartbreak, failed relationships, parenting obstacles, death of a loved one, self-esteem troubles, spiritual warfare, mental and emotional trauma, and much more.”

HUBBY KNOWS BEST — During an interview this week with Making Headline News, Brittney Carr credited, Darius Carr, her beloved companion for having fueled her desire to compose a book that figures to help advance the kingdom — much sooner than later.

For Carr, a Houston-based author, she said that while the writing process of her book wasn’t merely a lengthy one — “Maybe a couple of days, but the editing took a little longer and the procrastination of not knowing if I wanted to let people know my business,” she acknowledged — she certainly didn’t want to be ashamed of the turbulent developments she disclosed.

Still, because she was thoroughly convinced that God had strategically placed her on assignment to compose her book, she knew full well she had to tell of her story to the masses.

THEY’RE DEPENDING ON HER — To no avail, God — as only He could — didn’t allow Carr to cross paths with a premature death, in large part because, well, the purpose for which He created her wasn’t fulfilled.

And so it came to pass, Carr’s assortment of emotional and life-alter testimonies, all of which had come wrapped up in a rather pivotal message, one that reminds us, among other things, that fear is false evidence appearing real, she often says without hesitation.

“Alot of people are paralyzed by fear and they are unable to live life,” Carr said. “I was one of those people. I wasn’t afraid to die, but I was afraid to live. I hated this world and everything in it. And I was ready to go home (to heaven).”

To no avail, God — as only He could — didn’t allow Carr to cross paths with a premature death, in large part because, well, the purpose for which He created her wasn’t merely fulfilled.

That, as a result, meant she had to tough it out, thus press and navigate her way through the slew of unfavorable circumstances that arose in her young life to challenge her faith.

“Through the goodness of God, I made it through,” Carr said. “And I want to let people know that they may be in the darkest place of their lives right now, but if they just continue to trust God and pray and cry out to Him that they can get out. God is a Present Help and He is always listening and guiding His children.”


HAVE NO FEAR 

TRUSTING THE PROCESS — For Carr, a Houston-based author, she said that while the writing process of her book wasn’t merely a lengthy one — “Maybe a couple of days, but the editing took a little longer and the procrastination of not knowing if I wanted to let people know my business,” she acknowledged — she certainly didn’t want to be ashamed of the turbulent developments she disclosed.

As expected, the feedback since the release of Carr’s book has been favorable.

“I have gained very positive feedback,” said Carr, adding that a two more books are on the horizon. “People have been writing me, telling me how my testimonies have inspired them in many ways.”

Much to her delight, Carr has her husband to thank for helping steer her to her divine purpose.

“My life is a testimony that I was ashamed of, but not anymore,” Carr said. “I realized I’m not the only one with life issues, and if we just tell our testimonies and not be afraid, we can all help one another get through life until we go home.”

As far as this amazing author is concerned, that literally goes without saying.

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


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


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

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

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


SEASON OF THE REBIRTH 

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

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

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

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

Especially now that she’s a newlywed.


DELAWARE STATE OF MIND  

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

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


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

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

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

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


WHERE IT ALL STARTED 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Houston’s Kateri McKnight savoring the best of both worlds as an entrepreneur, accomplished author


MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES KATERI T. MCKNIGHT


DALLAS — Kateri McKnight isn’t just an accomplished businesswoman.

She’s one who has become thoroughly committed to ensuring that she continues to function diligently in her element.

Not only that, McKnight has deemed it essential to go to great lengths to reach back and help like-minded individuals to follow suit.


RAISING THE BAR 

WOMAN OF DISTINCT POWER — Houston businesswoman Kateri T. McKnight assumes the role as CEO of Velocity Changers, a globally-acclaimed company that is centered largely on offering it clients innovative ways to get their stories from out their spirits onto paper or, as McKnight jokingly says, on to “kindle.”

“My personal mission is to empower and inspire those to open their hearts in order to open their minds to reach out to others with their writing skills,” McKnight told Making Headline News during a recent interview.

The mission which McKnight is alluding is that about which she assumes the role as CEO of Velocity Changers, a globally-acclaimed company that is centered largely on offering it clients innovative ways to get their stories from out their spirits onto paper or, as McKnight jokingly says, on to “kindle.”

“We cater to most genres, but are particular to inspirational, empowerment-based fiction, business, and relational stories,” McKnight, 33, said of her business venture that is customarily accompanied by the slogan, ‘We change lives one book at a time.’

PUTTIN’ IN WORK — McKnight isn’t just an accomplished businesswoman. She’s one who has become thoroughly committed to ensuring that she continues to function diligently in her element.

A native the New Orleans, McKnight — who resides in Houston — said that she essentially was birthed into the entrepreneurship industry.


“Entrepreneurship has been all around me as my parents, uncles, and even neighbors in my grandmother’s neighborhood always had a means to help others through a paid skill. As I ventured into adulthood, the constraints of the 9-to-5 (job) life always left me sorely underwhelmed and innovatively distraught from a lack of creative flow and the inability to increase my income with perfected skills.” — Texas Businesswoman Kateri T. McKnight


That certainly isn’t the case today for McKnight, a sharp and resourceful businesswoman, who has surely enjoyed her share of sustained success as her own boss.

ANOTHER MASSIVE MILESTONE — McKnight recently witnessed the much-anticipated release of her second book, which is entitled, “Whispering Passions: Secret Of The Meadows.” An informative and intriguing project that hit the market via Amazon & Barnes and Noble online on December 15, McKnight will publicly promote her newly-assembled book during an official release party on January 15.

“I love the fact that I am able to pace my own creative flow and open others to do the same,” said McKnight, when asked what she loves the most about her business. “The very moment my clients have that rush of creative spark is when the flow becomes automatic and the inspiration becomes more infused into the work being completed.”

Having graduated in the top 20 percent of her class at New Orleans’ O. Perry Walker Senior High School, McKnight holds an Associate’s Degree in Occupational Health from Cameron College and is currently pursuing a four-year degree in Business Administration/Entrepreneurship.

An Air Force veteran, McKnight was serviced in Operation Enduring Freedom, as well as the Operation Iraqi Freedom Era.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — Having graduated in the top 20 percent of her class at New Orleans’ O. Perry Walker Senior High School, McKnight holds an Associate’s Degree in Occupational Health from Cameron College and is currently pursuing a four-year degree in Business Administration/Entrepreneurship.

As for Velocity Changers, she said she is committed to ensuring that it remains a center, of sorts, for authors and bloggers — “novice and seasoned,” she said — who need assistance in finding their voice to write their creative work in efforts to publish and become bestsellers.

“We have both Do-It-With-You and Do-It-For-You packages where we go from the brainstorming process, all the way to marketing and publishing in both group and one-on-one settings,” McKnight said.

Interestingly and to her credit, McKnight’s flourishing business has fueled her desire to become more of a fixture in the authorship industry.

That’s because she recently witnessed the much-anticipated release of her second book, which is entitled, “Whispering Passions: Secret Of The Meadows.”

Also, she will be a featured speaker during a local telesummit hosted by the Ruach Life Network, she announced recently.

A business that caters mostly to women — “and some men,” she said — ranging in ages 24 and 60, McKnight established Velocity Changers in 2014.

To her credit, it has been a constant success ever since.

“Positivity is my life,” McKnight said. “Without affirmations, well-wishes, and hopeful gestures, the spirit dies. So for me, inspiring and esteeming others is second nature just as breathing. Everyone has a story to tell, but most need a guide to help them pull it out of them and the confidence to stand in it.”

Texas 5-star entrepreneur Shelia Henry is a radiant go-getter as owner and CEO of multiple business ventures

Shelia Henry can be appropriately described as a number of superlatives.

A true go-getter undoubtedly would be one of them.

FULFILLING HER PURPOSE — Aside from being dubbed a go-getter, longtime entrepreneur Shelia Henry is one who could be appropriately labeled a serial entrepreneur, considering the Houston native owns multiple business ventures, most notably Hazel Maid Service, her featured one that has been in operations for the past 15-plus years.

For what it’s worth, Henry has surely stayed true to herself, particularly as it relates to aiding others mightily to progress to the next level.

Credit her immeasurable resume as a longtime Houston-area businesswoman as arguably the biggest reason why.

“My personal mission is to be able to give away what God gave to me and to be a great service of society — when and wherever that may be — in a professional setting,” Henry said.

A graduate of Houston’s Ross Shaw Sterling High School, Henry attended Houston Community College, where she obtained an Associate’s Degree in Business Administration.  Consequently, she enrolled at North Star Institute, where she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Theology Biblical Studies.

Also, Henry is founder and director of Right Step Right Direction and Girl Chat Alumni non-profit organizations, both of which are designed in large part to cater to downtrodden females in various communities.

As for her featured business venture, Henry knows full well that her labor isn’t merely in vain, considering she has been the beneficiary of a notable honor for her valiant efforts.

Henry came away with consecutive City Beats News Customer Services Awards for 2017 and 2018.

GOD’S PLAN — Henry enrolled at North Star Institute, where she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Theology Biblical Studies.

“We are proud,” Henry said of having been honored for her body of work through Hazel Maids. “We take pride in being a part of helping families upkeep their homes due to a busy lifestyle and busy schedules. We take pride in what we do and we strive to make our customers happy.

“We love building relationships and we love being a part of history with families that we clean for.”

All of which explains why she can be appropriately described as a number of superlatives.

A true go-getter undoubtedly would be one of them.

Houston’s Shelita Anderson walking in her divine purpose as an author of seven books and counting

A MAKING HEADLINE NEWS INDEPENDENCE DAY 2018 SPECIAL REPORT 

 

EDITOR’S NOTE:This is the first of three Making Headline News in-depth news feature stories on Houston, Texas Author/Entrepreneur Shelita Anderson.  

 

Shelita Anderson has been writing for a very long time.

Since she was a preschooler to be technical.

MORE ON AUTHOR SHELITA ANDERSON: http://www.shelitaanderson.com

DESTINY STEPS THROUGH AUTHORSHIP — A devout woman of faith whose immeasurable gifts as an accomplished writer have given way to her becoming a beacon of light in the Body of Christ, Houston’s Shelita Anderson is especially known for having composed two notable books entitled, The Power, The Prayer, And The Praise and Taste And See: Poetry For The Soul.

“I have been writing since I was four years old,” Anderson told Making Headline News this week. “I love to write and would write all over the wall and paper and anything that I could write on. My dad bought me a chalkboard. I understood that I was called to write about 10 years ago.”

For Anderson, a native of Houston, she has gone to great lengths to fully embrace the calling for which she was created, particularly through the ever-so-competitive world of authorship.

That’s because Anderson has written seven books to date, including three children’s books within the past five years.

“I chose to produce the books, because I believed that I was called to do so,” Anderson said.

A devout woman of faith whose immeasurable gifts as an accomplished writer have given way to her becoming a beacon of light in the Body of Christ, Anderson is especially known for having composed two notable books entitled, The Power, The Prayer, And The Praise and Taste And See: Poetry For The Soul.

Anderson’s Taste And See: Poetry For The Soul was officially released in 2015 and is a 122-page written document that is comprised of a collection of poems dealing with life’s assortment of challenges and disruptions.

PURCHASE SHELITA’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.de/Power-Prayer-Praise-Shelita-Anderson/dp/171702274X

In this book, each poem is accompanied by scripture, which is a reflection page for journaling and daily meditation, according to a detailed description of Anderson’s book at Amazon.com.

“Taste And See Poetry For The Soul will help you indulge in the fruits of the spirit,” said a spokesperson for Anderson’s book at Amazon.com. “You’ll experience peace, joy, longsuffering, gentleness, wisdom, prosperity, forgiveness, and so much more.”

As for Anderson’s The Power, The Prayer, And The Praise, this particular book had been in the making for about the last five years, she acknowledged.

“When I look back at my notes, I have many books inside of me, but God always reveals to me when it is time to release the next book,” said Anderson, who finally witnessed the much-anticipated release of The Power, The Prayer, And The Praise earlier this year. “I am a believer and a minister of the gospel and it’s amazing how God reveals Himself through daily devotion, prayer, and meditation.”

An authorship tenure that dates back to 2013, Anderson is the mastermind behind five other books:

PURCHASE SHELITA’S BOOK HERE, TOO: https://www.amazon.com/Taste-See-Shelita-M-Anderson-ebook/dp/B01A2VYOT4

What God Says About Me, which was released in 2013

I Think Myself Happy, The Happy Book, which was released in 2013.

God’s Creation I Can See, released in 2014

My Mommy, Cancer, And Me, released in 2016 and,

The King’s Kid’s Prayer Book, which hit the market in 2018.

As for The Power, The Prayer, And The Praise, Anderson emphasizes that while there is power in the word of God, the word must be spoken by a believer.

THE JEREMIAH 29:11 FACTOR — For Anderson, a native of Houston, she has gone to great lengths to fully embrace the calling for which she was created, particularly through the ever-so-competitive world of authorship. That’s because Anderson has written seven books to date, including three children’s books within the past five years.

“When you speak the word and believe that God heard you and is a God that answers, you will see results based on the level of your faith,” Anderson explained. “The book is filled with scriptures on power, prayer, and praise, along with proclamations that you can say. It is a devotional with 31 days and bonus prayers in the back. There is power in the word of God.”

As for Taste and See: Poetry For The Soul- Poems, a book that is saturated with the word of God, Anderson acknowledged that while we are believing for a breakthrough from Almighty God, we can find comfort in poetry for hope, peace, love, and longsuffering, among other things.

“Come and dine with me and experience victory in the midst of a difficult situation,” Anderson said.

As expected, the feedback since her books’ release has been favorable.


WAY BACK WHEN — “I have been writing since I was four years old,” Anderson told Making Headline News this week. “I love to write and would write all over the wall and paper and anything that I could write on. My dad bought me a chalkboard. I understood that I was called to write about 10 years ago.”

 

“I have received several positive, divine and heartwarming remarks about both books,” Anderson said. “The books have blessed me. I use the books for daily devotional. I have used the books for my ladies meetings.”

This weekend will be no exception for Anderson when she partakes in an area book signing at the Spring Hill Marriott in downtown Houston July 7-9.

“I am anointed and appointed for such a time as this,” Anderson said of her well-publicized authorship tenure. “God has done great things in my life. I grew up in a family where we had love, discipline, joy, laughter and peace. My daddy picked cotton as a young man and worked his way up to a fence contractor and work so hard — even when he was not feeling well — and gave it all that he had. My mother was a nurse assistant and a medication aide, but look what the Lord has done with a girl that was born and had less than zero.”

STANDING OVATION — As expected, the feedback since Anderson’s books’ release has been favorable.

By and large, amongst the things about which Anderson doesn’t take lightly through her gifts as an author is just how far from where God has brought her.

“He brought me to new levels,” said Anderson, a woman of many hats who’s widely known also as a minister, intercessor,  conference speaker, entrepreneur, and spiritual leader, just to name a few. “I was determined to become the best that I could be. I worked my way through life, from my teenage years to adulthood. I am a wife, mother, registered nurse, and nurse leader. I have an MBA and there is no telling what else God has in store for me and for those that love Him.”
