Dallas/Fort Worth businesswoman Crystal N. Tolbert ‘Walking In Greatness’ — literally and figuratively


She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. (Proverbs 31:17 NIV)


GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS 

ON A KINGDOM MISSION — As Crystal N. Tolbert explained during a recent interview with Making Headline News, her mission — and “responsibility” — for establishing her featured endeavor is to customarily offer create a strategic, effective platform, one that would help change the mindset, impact, lead, and prepare what she describes as “the jewels” (or women) for their own legacy, so they can, in turn, walk in complete greatness in the kingdom.

DALLAS — As far as the above Biblical passage goes, say this about Crystal Nicole Tolbert:

She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.
In that distinctly unique order.
Consider, for instance, how Tolbert, a progressive, flourishing and devout woman of faith, had go about assuming her strategic, God-mandated assignment as the founder of Walking In Greatness Ministries, a Dallas/Fort Worth-based, faith-oriented ministry and social organization.
As Tolbert, 39, explained during a recent interview with Making Headline News, her mission — and “responsibility” — for establishing her featured endeavor is to customarily offer a strategic, effective platform, one that would help change the mindset, impact, lead, and prepare what she describes as “the jewels” (or women) for their own legacy, so they can, in turn, walk in complete greatness in the kingdom.

“Our desire is to help woman find their value, purpose, joy, independence, and the true meaning of happiness to prepare them for their destiny to fully walk in greatness,” said Tolbert, providing a detailed synopsis of her ministry.

And then there is Tolbert’s “Woman of Greatness Jewels of Destiny,” a mentorship program that essentially falls under her ministry’s umbrella, whereby it customarily prepares and equips individuals to fully recognize their life’s purpose, particularly by gaining knowledge, support, and development needed to ignite their passions, gifts, and talents as an effective way to make a massive impact on the world.

“This (program) provides a Biblical, yet practical approach to living your life in purpose, on purpose,” Tolbert said.

An endeavor that accommodates individuals ranging mostly in ages 25 to 60, Tolbert credits what she deems a “kingdom creative for people who are ready to live a kingdom purpose life” as arguably the biggest reason she’s been blessed to oversee a Christian-based business for such a time as now.


“(I’m) continually gaining obtaining and acquiring the knowledge and skills required to have as a kingdom entrepreneur with ministry in the market place,” said Tolbert, explaining how her competitive drive in life has greatly enabled her to assemble a notable business. “I called it ‘Exit To The Platform.’”


As one of God’s “leading jewels and mentors” Tolbert has been afforded the luxury of promoting Walking in Greatness Ministries in a variety of establishments around the country, most notably Los Angeles, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Las Vegas, and Atlanta, among others.

“I really want to be able to impact and bring forth what God has place in them,” Tolbert, a Lufkin, Texas native said explaining the mission of her ministry. “It is so important to me that Jewels of Destiny are left with something of real value. I was called to be a dream changer because I have the gift to make dreams reality for the kingdom.”


ADVANCING THE KINGDOM

More than anything, though, Tolbert’s kingdom-based assignment is centered largely on her being an anointed woman of God, one who will ceremoniously take a much-anticipated massive step toward her destiny when she is officially installed as a Pastor at Restored IV Purpose Ministries Sunday in nearby Farmers Branch, Texas. Pictured with Tolbert is her husband, Kenneth Tolbert.

A Lufkin High School and Angelina College alum, Tolbert is widely known as a devoted wife, mother, author, prophetic scribe, and speaker.

More than anything, though, her kingdom-based assignment is centered largely on her being an anointed woman of God, one who will ceremoniously take a much-anticipated massive step toward her destiny when she is officially installed as a Pastor at Restored IV Purpose Ministries Sunday in nearby Farmers Branch, Texas.

Restored IV Purpose Ministries is located at 13624 Gamma Road.

Her itinerary also includes:

An upcoming speaking engagement in St Thomas at the Emerald Beach Resort, a Prophetic Scribe Workshop on August 3 in Los Angeles, and an appearance during the Joyful Moments Prayer Brunch on August 24 at Red Oak Municipal Center.

Armed with more than 15 years of experience in her selected line of work, Tolbert doesn’t shy away from the notion that God’s Hands have been on her life for as long as she can recall.

All of which essentially sums up why she sets about her work vigorously and her arms are strong for her tasks.

DESTINY STEPS — Tolbert’s “Woman of Greatness Jewels of Destiny” is mentorship program that’s essentially falls under her ministry’s umbrella, whereby it customarily prepares and equips individuals to fully recognize their life’s purpose, particularly by gaining knowledge, support, and development needed to ignite their passions, gifts, and talents as an effective way to make a massive impact on the world.

In that distinctly unique order.

“I want (people) to be able to be so inspired from what I share that they go back to their own various lives and put forth the action to make their dreams their own reality,” Tolbert said before offering what she labels kingdom tools to live by.

“Seek, write, and believe,” she continued. “You must seek the Lord first. Write the vision. Believe the Vision.”

To her credit, she’s doing that, with God, her Helper, steering the way.

Alabama preacher Tamika D. Pharr goes from ‘thug girl’ lifestyle to selling out solely to Jesus Christ


Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, since you know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:58)


SOLD OUT ON JESUS 

BEAUTY FOR ASHES — Aside from overseeing the day-to-day operations of a credible business, Tamika D. Pharr is Mobile-area minister as the beloved Co-Pastor of Tabernacle of Praise Church, a tradition-rich, historic institution that also has a campus in Richmond, California.

DALLAS — Tamika D. Pharr could be appropriately described as a number of things.

For starters, she’s an accomplished businesswoman as a resourceful sales consultant with Paparazzi, a globally-acclaimed venture that’s widely known for offering consumers fashion-forward jewelry and product parties.

She’s a proud mother of two, a grandmother of three, and a mother-in-“love” to whom she often describes as a “beautiful young lady.”
More than anything, though, Pharr would be the first to tell you that she’s devout woman of faith, one’s who deems it essential to go to great lengths to proclaim the matchless Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Never mind that this Mobile, Alabama native was raised in what the urban community has dubbed the School of Hard Knocks.
“I had a rough upbringing. But God,” Pharr, 43, told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “(I’ve) seen a lot, heard a lot, done a lot. But God.”

And because Pharr, a resourceful, resilient, spiritually-empowering minister, doesn’t shy away from the notion that God is, by all accounts, the Focal Point of her life, it’s safe to assume that life as she knows it is, well, far more superior than her rough upbringing.

Aside from overseeing the day-to-day operations of a credible business, Pharr is Mobile-area minister as the beloved Co-Pastor of Tabernacle of Praise Church, a tradition-rich, historic institution that also has a campus in Richmond, California.

Widely regarded as a Christian-centered ministry that accompanied by the slogan, “Changing The World With The Word,” Tabernacle of Praise is pastored by Apostle Timothy D. Monigan.

WOMAN OF MANY HATS — Pharr is an accomplished businesswoman as a resourceful sales consultant with Paparazzi, a globally-acclaimed venture that’s widely known for offering consumers fashion-forward jewelry and product parties.

For Pharr, that she was steadfastly brought up in the church and raised in an environment where she customarily was taught Biblical principles has proven beneficial to her, considering even to this day, she’s still very much on fire for Almighty God.

Only now, she’s serving and paying homage to Him from a much larger stage.

“My family taught me that when you learn better, you do better,” said Pharr, recalling vividly the memorable developments of her childhood. “That took a while to set in on me, because I was a thug girl, but God turned me into a church girl.”

Widely regarded as a Christian-centered ministry that accompanied by the slogan, “Changing The World With The Word,” Tabernacle of Praise is pastored by Apostle Timothy D. Monigan.

As Pharr explained, it took a relatively solid supporting cast of godly women who collectively helped steer her from the School of Hard Knocks as a “thug girl” to, well, Sunday School — pretty much on the regular.


“I have my grandmother Pruitt, (who was) an elder of love and understanding at Primitive Baptist Church until her health change and God called her home,” Pharr recalled. “My grandmother, Pauline James, plays a great big part in my life. She also helped raise me. My great grandmother, Mary Pharr, is the mother of St. Luke Church, where she’s been a member since before I was born. She is now 100 years old and her health has changed. My great aunt, Pastor Shirley Edwards and I, are the newest pastors in the family.”


For Pharr, that she was steadfastly brought up in the church and raised in an environment where she customarily was Biblical principles has proven beneficial to her, considering even to this day, she’s still very much on fire for Almighty God.

Sadly as it is to say, Pharr’s rise to becoming a full-time minister hasn’t been fully accepted by some whom she sensed would offer valiant support.

“Well, since I became pastor, a lot of family and friends have fell off, but I heard the Lord say that He will add unto me,” Pharr said without hesitation. “I saw God positioning me for ministry back in 2008 after I lost my 10-week-old baby.”

As it turned out, Pharr’s losing an unborn child essentially served a defining moment, of sorts, for this beloved, bigger-than-life thug girl-turned-woman of the cloth.

“I heard the Lord say He has need of me,” Pharr said in the wake of her dreaded miscarriage.

WE ARE FAMILY — “My family taught me that when you learn better, you do better,” said Pharr, recalling vividly the memorable developments of her childhood. “That took a while to set in on me, because I was a thug girl, but God turned me into a church girl.”

To her credit, this young preacher hasn’t looked back since.

If nothing else, she’s diligently drawn closer and closer to God which, in dramatic sequence of events, is a far cry from the proverbial thug girl life.

Having officially accepted her calling to preach the Gospel in 2011 — “I heard God call my name, using a familiar voice,” she recalls — Pharr initially sensed that it was actually her unborn baby who was calling her name.

Oddly as it might seem, she eventually heard her name called three times.

One for the Father.

One for the Son.

One for the Holy Ghost.

In that order.

As it turned out, Pharr’s losing unborn child essentially served a defining moment, of sorts, for this beloved, bigger-than-life thug girl-turned-woman of the cloth.

And if God said it, that settles it.

“My testimony is when God say go, obey His voice,” Pharr said. “I told God I didn’t want to do this. First of all, I thought I wasn’t worthy enough. Then I still wanted to sit at the bar and stay in the club.”

Still, in spite of her rebelliousness, amongst the things that Pharr had ultimately discovered is that if God has a dire need of you, He’ll find His way to the bar and club.

In no particularly order.

“One night, as I was sitting in the club, I heard a Voice so clear and I started looking around for someone,” Pharr explained. “I heard Him again, so I got up and ran out the club like I just seen a ghost.”

In essence, that’s what actually happened.


GOD’S LEADING LADY 

As Pharr explained, it took a relatively solid supporting cast of godly women who collectively helped steer her from the School of Hard Knocks as a “thug girl” to, well, Sunday School — pretty much on the regular.

Only this time, it was the Holy Ghost.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

“I have been going since then,” Pharr, who plans to compose a book that depicts her life, said of having found her niche in ministry. “He called me out the club to the church, from a thug girl to a church girl.”

Which goes to show that today, she could be appropriately described as a number of things.

A beloved spokesperson for Christ topping the list.

With a $500 price tag, Maryland author Prophetess Dr. Anita Naves’ “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man” is a ‘must buy!’


For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. (Romans 8:18 KJV)


WALKING IN HER DESTINY 

ALL GOD’S DOING — A little less than one year removed from his its much-anticipated release, Prophetess Dr. Anita G. Naves’ “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man” has caught the attention of a host of celebs, most notably renowned Gospel recording artist Pastor Shirley Caesar.

Prophetess Dr. Anita G. Naves recalls like yesterday how it all went down, remembers vividly how her employer had unceremoniously given her the dreaded pink slip.

“God gave me the vision to write the book in 2010 after I was laid off from the Prince George’s County Public School system as a result of a reduction in force,” Naves, a Maryland-based author and businesswoman, told Making Headline News this week.
The book to which Naves is referencing is “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man,” a basic spiritual guide to understanding the divine gift of the ministry of prophecy, its power, its purpose, and its prophets.

THE PRICE IS RIGHT

WORTH THE MONEY — Naves goes to great lengths to share her experience of being awaken into a heavenly trance, where she was specifically instructed to listen, take notes, and to write this book on behalf of God’s heart desire, to let the world know that He is the Ministry Gift of prophecy. Moreover, Naves — as mandated by God — raises awareness and provides sound biblical credibility to the workings and execution of God’s plans for His ministry gift of prophecy and His prophets. The cost for this awe-inspiring and life-changing book: $500.

Officially released on August 17, 2018, Naves’ “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man” is deemed an inspiring tribute to what this Christian-based writer labels “the divine and empowering supernatural” ministry gift of prophecy,” according to a detail introduction of this book by Author House.

Naves’ project is widely regarded as history-making one, considering it is believed to be that no book in American history has sold for $500 multiple times over.

Labeled a “miracle book,” Naves’ written work may be purchased for a lesser amount from Authorhouse, she said. But those who have purchased the book directly from the author at $500 have reported what she describes as amazing “financial and healing breakthroughs” in areas of their lives, where stagnation had set in.
Also, Talent Scots for New Readers International along with MGM studios have sought Naves for a movie screen adaptation deal. This author, in fact, was told that her book rated highly for best new author for screen adaptation offer.

Interestingly, Naves goes to great lengths to share her experience of being awaken into a heavenly trance, where she was specifically instructed to listen, take notes, and to write this book on behalf of God’s heart desire, to let the world know that He is the Ministry Gift of prophecy. Moreover, Naves — as mandated by God — raises awareness and provides sound biblical credibility to the workings and execution of God’s plans for His ministry gift of prophecy and His prophets.

The cost for this awe-inspiring and life-changing book: $500.

Nope, this is no typo, mind you.

Rather, for Naves, the unorthodox price tag for this book was mandated by God Almighty Himself.

And if God said it, that settles it.

How else to explain why much to Naves’ delight, more than a dozen consumers have already invested in “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man” which, to her credit, undoubtedly is a sign of things to come for a book that is steadily having a massive kingdom impact.


“Everything in my life at that time seemed to be going wrong,” said Naves, recalling the assortment of hardships she endured before God had strategically assigned her to compose her new book. “But it was in that moment God started to tell me that He would reframe my spiritual beliefs with really knowing His word and understanding Bible and really knowing His voice.”


Consequently, it wasn’t long thereafter that Naves began to establish more of a close-knit relationship with God during her season in the wilderness.

“The Holy Spirit led me to a Christian church Bible college in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, where I begin to learn and study the Bible on another level,” Naves explained. “While at the same time, God was speaking to me about the gift of prophecy within me, telling me how He would perfect it all the more, so I could teach truth to others in a more perfected way.”

For Naves, such teachings arose, courtesy of her newly-produced book which, truth be told, is worth the $500 price of admission.


MAKING GLOBAL HEADLINES 

“God gave me the vision to write the book in 2010 after I was laid off from the Prince George’s County Public School system as a result of a reduction in force,” Naves, a Maryland-based author and businesswoman, told Making Headline News this week.

“The vision for book started to emerge in within me like a roast cooking in a crock pot to perfection over several years with God adding the special ingredients,” said Naves, who needed somewhere in the neighborhood of six years to complete her book.

Ironically, her vision for assembling “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man” arose amid an emotionally-driven fantasy, this devout woman of faith, recalls.

“I felt compelled to write the book after I had a dream that I went to heaven and was sitting before God’s Face, listening to Him tell me about How He wanted the truth to be known about the spirit gift of prophecy and His real prophets in the earth versus the fake deceiving ones,” Naves explained. “In the dream, I was surrounded by pure bright lights…the brightest I have never seen before in earth.

“These dreams came at several times of the early morning until I finally got up and started journaling the information that had been downloaded in my spirit. God told in the dream that I could be trusted to speak from truth…not from man’s perspective, but from His heart’s perspective, backing it up with solid Bible scripture.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

A little less than one year removed from his its much-anticipated release, Naves’ “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man” has caught the attention of a host of celebs, most notably renowned Gospel recording artist Pastor Shirley Caesar.

Also, Naves has announced that other written works are on the horizon and are expected to be released as early as next year.

“I am currently working on putting the finishing touches on them,” said Naves, referring to her forthcoming project entitled, “PARTY With Me,” which is a motivational journal of self-acceptance through God’s love.

ALL SMILES NOW — Officially released on August 17, 2018, Naves’ “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man” is deemed an inspiring tribute to what this Christian-based writer labels “the divine and empowering supernatural” ministry gift of prophecy,” according to a detail introduction of this book by Author House.

Naves other upcoming book is “Pssst…Follow The Clues,” which will address how to discern possible relationship incompatibilities by paying attention to the clues.

“God keeps surprising me with signs, wonders, and miracles, even in the midst of trials,” Naves said. “I knew the book was powerful when I got fired from my job in 2009.

“It feels like I’m living a dream,” Naves continued.

Surely, with God, all things are possible, as this brilliantly gifted author has discovered.

Boston author Pamela Reece’s “I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage” deemed a much-anticipated ‘must read’


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


PURPOSED FOR ADVERSITY

TURNING POINT — To her credit, Pamela Reece’s authorship talents have come full circle, given she is the mastermind behind the spiritually-empowering book entitled, “I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage,” an awe-inspiring project that, according to this Boston-area writer, essentially aligns with the purpose for which she was created.

Regardless of how discouraging or dysfunctional things had become, say this about Pamela Reece:

She was determined not to faint (or give up) in her day (present time) of adversity.
“On various occasions, I’d be in the company of friends, sharing portions of my story, growing up in a dysfunctional setting and the adversities I had to overcome,” Reece, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the memorable developments that fueled her desire to compose her latest book.
“Initially, the conversations were just a means to socialize and share my testimony of God’s faithfulness to me through the years,” Reece continued. “I would go from one experience to the next as my friends listened intently…so much that they strongly suggested I write a book.  I quickly dismissed the idea of writing, because it seemed so daunting.”
All things considered, amongst the things that Reece had ultimately discovered was that God had other ideas, particularly with her regards to her immeasurable gifts as a writer.

To her credit, Reece’s authorship talents have come full circle, given she is the mastermind behind the spiritually-empowering book entitled, “I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage,” an awe-inspiring project that, according to this Boston-area writer, essentially aligns with the purpose for which she was created.

“Whenever God sends a deliverer, the opposition will wage war so that the deliverer doesn’t walk in his or her purpose,” said Reece, a devout woman of faith whom, given her array of hardships, is sounding as confident as she’s ever been in quite some time. “The opposition knows the Deliverer if given free course, will powerfully impact lives and generations to come.  So adversity was sent to smother my identity and purpose in the earth, yet every trial was sent to shape my personality but only for the better.  What seemed unfair, unjust and horrific, God has turned it for my good.”

Especially through “I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage,” this spiritually-equipping written work that, much to Reece’s delight, was birthed amid all sorts of adversity that emerged in her life to challenge her faith.

Still, come hell or high water, this Christian-based author didn’t merely allow her faith to waver.

If nothing, she deemed it essential to become even more intentional, particularly from a spiritually perspective, considering she steadfastly made it point to draw closer to God in the process.

THE PROVERBS 24:10 FACTOR — “I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage” is spiritually-equipping written work that, much to Reece’s delight, was birthed amid all sorts of adversity

Talk about demonstrating enough spiritual maturity by simply embracing adversity.


“Without the adversity, I would not have the advantage today of sharing this interview with the world,” Reece said. “Statistics tell us that eight out of 10 rapes are committed by someone the victim knows.  Every nine minutes, child protective service agencies find evidence of sexual abuse.”


Interesting, Reece disclosed some other notable facts to better support her purpose for assembling “I Chose The Good: Turning  Adversity Into Advantage.”

A native of Boston, Reece’s “I Chose the Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage” is her personal memoir that details in length her growing up in a home of severe dysfunctionality and adversity.  This book, in fact, goes into great length of how she was exposed to abandonment, alcoholism, verbal abuse, and sexual molestation.

“I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage” is Reece’s first published book and, earlier this week, she told Making Headline News that after the forthcoming re-launch of “I Chose the Good,” more literary works will surface in the pipeline before year’s end.

“Today and the future are mine to dream, describe, and define,” Reece said. “I am particularly passionate about those who are a little older like myself, who know that they’re made for more and have an insatiable desire to pursue a lifelong dream and touch the world.”

To her credit, she’s doing just that — regardless of how discouraging or dysfunctional things might seem.

St. Louis author Prophetess Deborah Allen displaying unshakable faith through her book ‘Fierce’


But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5 KJV)


FIERCE KIND OF FAITH

BUT GOD!!! A St. Louis-area Pastor, Prophetess Deborah Allen’s “Fierce” was released amid what was seemingly a trying season in the life of this devout woman of faith. Amongst the reasons is that when God had strategically given Allen instructions to compose her new book, it happened during a time in which her husband, Bishop Glen Allen Sr., had been hospitalized due to an ongoing back pain, as well as an abnormal X-ray and a possible infection in his kidney.

DALLAS — The enemy tried all he could to toss shade in her direction.

Still, Prophetess Deborah Allen was determined to stand toe-to-toe and outlast the adversary the best was she knew how — with the written word of God which, to her credit, had come wrapped up in an awe-inspiring book.
“God first gave me the vision for this book as I was driving home the end of December 2016,” Allen told Making Headline News this week.
The book to which Allen is alluding is her relatively new project entitled, “Fierce,” which officially debuted in May 2018.

A book that is comprised of 176 pages in length, Allen acknowledged that this spiritually-empowering book, by all accounts, reinforces her spiritual gifts, one of which is the gift of laying on hands and declaring healing upon the live of God’s people.

Amongst the reasons is that when God had strategically given Allen instructions to compose her new book, it happened during a time in which her husband, Bishop Glen Allen Sr., had been hospitalized due to an ongoing back pain, as well as an abnormal X-ray and a possible infection in his kidney.

“However, we learned he had stage four cancer and it had been growing inside his body undetected for about seven years,” Prophetess Allen recalled. “This was a complete shock and stage four chronic lymphocytic leukemia. As I was driving home, I was talking to God about how hard my life seemed to be, that it had been nothing but a battle. God showed me that from the beginning He was with me.”


THIS IS HOLY GROUND 

ON GOD’S BATTLEFIELD — Widely regarded throughout the Body of Christ as a fierce, dynamic, and powerful woman of God, Prophetess Allen currently serves as Senior Pastor of Lighthouse Apostolic Ministries of God Church, a stint she’s held for the past two decades.

Indeed He was — and still is.

How else to explain why “Fierce” has been dubbed a “powerful, spirit-filled book” since its much-anticipated a little more than a year ago?

“The Lord breathed upon this book and filled it with a fresh wind,” said a spokesperson for Allen’s “Fierce” in a detailed breakdown of this book at Amazon.com. “Fierce was a God-inspired book as it was being written. God’s yoke-destroying anointing was loosed as this book was being penned. God’s spirit and anointing also flows as you are reading this book. Fierce prepares, instructs, and pushes the believer to put on the whole armor of God that we may be able to stand. Stand in the Lord and be fierce.”

“He blessed me to have the gift of healing in my hands,” Allen said. “God has sustained my husband and prayer has kept him. This is the season for God’s people to walk fiercely in him.”

Widely regarded throughout the Body of Christ as a fierce, dynamic, and powerful woman of God, Prophetess Allen currently serves as Senior Pastor of Lighthouse Apostolic Ministries of God Church, a stint she’s held for the past two decades.

Widely known also as a millionaire childcare coach, Prophetess Allen is an accomplished entrepreneur, who is the director of Little Lights Childcare and Learning Center, a St. Louis-area facility that has been in operation for 10 years.

As for “Fierce,” Prophetess Allen is appreciative of the notion that this book has opened “so many doors that I could never imagine,” she said without hesitation.


“This book has opened global doors for me,” said Prophetess Allen, alluding to her Fierce TV Show and Fierce Radio. “I have been featured internationally, because of this book. My God…who would have known that ‘Fierce’ would become such a movement in my life and the lives of many others everywhere? I’m simply amazed.”


As she should, especially considering aside from her husband’s physical challenges, Prophetess Allen can testify of the fact that God has blessed her to survive her very own season in the wilderness.

SEASON THE REBIRTH — Given the immeasurable strides she’s made in recent years — both in the natural and the spirit — it’s obviously this devout woman of faith has been armed with the kind of faith that was accompanied by a great deal of FIERCE.

“I’ve been through molestation, an abusive first marriage, I was a battered wife, teenage mother, and countless things, yet God has birthed His purpose out of my life for His divine glory,” Prophetess said. “As a leader, I want people to know that you can live, grow, and build, despite your life’s circumstances. Jesus is able to heal, deliver, and sustain us during every season of our lives and we are fierce in Him. My book is a testimony of strength, endurance, and encouragement through the Lord.”

So much for all that shade the adversary had tossed her direction.

And, given the immeasurable strides she’s made in recent years — both in the natural and the spirit — it’s obviously this devout woman of faith has been armed with the kind of faith that was accompanied by a great deal of FIERCE.

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


Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:58 NIV)


ALL IN GOD’S PLANS 

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

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

Her labour isn’t merely vain in the Lord.

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

BUY AISHA’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07R4Q8B6P/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_awdo_t1_Vm5XCbS0R4J0V?

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

Mission accomplished.

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

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

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

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

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


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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Virginia author Christina Johnson recalls her son’s cancer battle, courtesy of tear-jerking memoir


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


GOD’S MIRACLE CHILD 

ALL FOR DAVID — Virginia author Christina Johnson needed somewhere in the neighborhood of seven months to produce the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Fighting for King David,” a memoir of this mother’s journey with her child, who’s fighting childhood cancer.

For Christina Johnson, it all started out as a journal, one that was assembled within the walls of a local hospital.

As she recalled vividly, it all unfolded amid her son’s battle with Neuroblastoma, which reportedly is one of the world’s top three childhood cancers.

“The vision was given to me while I was in the hospital with my son while he has been going through cancer treatment,” Johnson — widely known as Crissy — told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “Before it was a book, it was a journal that the hospital gave to me to keep up with what was going on with him each day. There was a place where I would write my feeling and next thing you know, it was a book.”
And the rest, as they say, was history.

Johnson, in fact, needed somewhere in the neighborhood of seven months to produce the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Fighting for King David,” a memoir of this mother’s journey with her son, who’s fighting childhood cancer.

For Johnson, a Virginia-based author and alumna of Old Dominion University, her quest to assemble her book was accompanied a great deal of transparency.

“I decided to write the book to be as transparent as possible about what I dealt with as a mother and caregiver to my son,” Johnson explained. “I was also in my last semester of college at the time of my son’s diagnosis, six weeks away to be exact.”

Still, that Johnson demonstrated that kind of bend-but-don’t-break faith that ultimately kept her in high spirits, thus fueled her desire to remain focus on academics, even through her rash of adversities, virtually every goal and ambition was accomplished.

BOOK HER — Having accepted a few invitations to public share her stories and life-changing testimonies, Johnson is thoroughly convinced that “Fighting For King David” is synonymous to the purpose for which God has created her.

Yep, that’s just like God, providing for his child a valiant sense of direction in the midst of the storm, as only He could.

“I talked about my struggles in finishing my degree and also about the sudden death of my aunt all within weeks of my son’s diagnosis,” Johnson recalled. “I wanted to share my testimony and speak of how God kept me through all of this, how I still had to be a wife and mother to four children during all of this.”

Most importantly, Johnson was determined to encourage the masses just as God had strategically assigned her to through “Fighting for King David.”

As Johnson recalled, her vision to write her first book unfolded amid her son’s battle with Neuroblastoma, which reportedly is one of the world’s top three childhood cancers.

“I wanted to show the world that God is still performing miracles,” said Johnson, an accomplished businesswoman who is the owner and CEO of Crissy Designs LLC.

Now with her very first book having made its ceremonious presence on the market, Johnson emphasized that the divine message is rather direct and straight to the point.

“The divine message is that God still heals and He won’t put more on you then you can bear,” Johnson said. “Cancer does not discriminate.”

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

GOD’S LITTLE BALLER 

Johnson was determined to encourage the masses just as God strategically assigned her to through “Fighting for King David.”

“I have been given positive feedback about my book,” she said. “My story have touched so many lives. I have been asked how I was able to still succeed even through the struggle. I think my purpose is to be a voice for families who have a child that is struggling with cancer, to advocate and to bring awareness.”

Having accepted a few invitations to public share her stories and life-changing testimonies, Johnson is thoroughly convinced that “Fighting For King David” is synonymous to the purpose for which God has created her.

VICTORY STANCE 

For Johnson, a Virginia-based author and alumna of Old Dominion University, her quest to assemble her book was accompanied a great deal of transparency.

To her credit and much to her delight, there’s other notable projects she endeavors to produce and pass along to the masses, she said.

“I plan to create a journal for caregivers with inspirational quotes to help them write out their thoughts as they go their cancer journey with their child,” Johnson said. “Sort of what I did when I journaled each day.”

With God, her Helper, steering the way.

Georgia Pastor Vincent and Lady Ardys Leslie savoring the abundant life that Christ came to give them


Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly; Nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock; And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away. (1 Peter 5:2-4 NKJV)


THE JOHN 10:10 AFFECT

FRUITS OF THEIR LABOR — Powered by the motto that reads: We are real people with real issues looking for real answers, Abundant Life is widely deemed “one church in two locations,” considering it will unveil a campus in nearby Augusta the final weekend of April. As if that isn’t enough to set off a festive, jubilant, collective praise break amongst the masses, Abundant Life commemorated its fifth anniversary the first weekend in April, a feat Pastor Vincent and Lady Ardys Leslie don’t merely take lightly, considering God had strategically set them aside for His use — particularly to serve faithfully alongside each other for such a pivotal time as now.

DALLAS — While addressing the media Friday afternoon, Vincent Leslie recalled in great detail how God had strategically gone about placing him on an pivotal assignment for such a time as now.

A massive, life-changing endeavor, one that, to his distinctly unique credit, is steadily impacting and enriching the kingdom unlike never before.

“I didn’t just roll out of bed one day and start preaching,” Pastor Leslie told Making Headline News during a phone interview from Atlanta. “I’ve been preaching the gospel for over 20 years.”
For Pastor Leslie, it is a two-plus-decade journey that has benefited him mightily as one of God’s anointed spokesperson, who happens to be the Senior Pastor of Abundant Life Church of Atlanta and Augusta.

GOD’S PLAN — For Pastor Leslie, his two-plus-decade ministerial journey has benefited him mightily as one of God’s anointed spokesperson, who happens to be the Senior Pastor of Abundant Life Church of Atlanta and Augusta.

Officially referred to as Abundant Life Worship Center, this institution that has become a fixture in the Atlanta metropolitan area and has flourished fervently since its 2012 inception, in large part because it continues to fortify its awe-inspiring vision that’s centered on meeting people where they are, thus helping them to become fully devoted followers of Christ.

GOD’S LEADING LADY — A native of Los Angeles, Lady Leslie is a former salon owner and master stylist, who was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness. Not to be outdone, though, while it seemed she was “sold out to that religion” for an extended period of time, arguably the most crucial phenomenon she had come to discover is that Jesus isn’t just the Reason for every season but, above all, He’s the Reason she’s been set aside for God’s use.

Because they have diligently obeyed the Voice of God, today unlike never before, this couple — who share four children — are steadily savoring the fruits of their labor, not to mention possessing and savoring the Abundant Life that Christ came to give them.

For Pastor Leslie — a former Alabama A&M University student who spent eight years in the U. S. Army Reserve — his rise to selling out solely to God began at the tender age of 12.

A native of Huntsville, Alabama, who’s widely regarded as a man who God has commissioned and ordained to assure that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is disseminated to all mankind, Pastor Leslie  emerged as a young, gifted saxophonist, one who customarily played gospel music on a slew of platforms — most notably appearing as opening acts for a number of national recording artists.

Interestingly, it wasn’t until 1999 that he officially answered the call of God on his life, a development that had ultimately given way to his becoming a licensed minister at the historic Greater Hope Tabernacle Church in his native establishment.

A former armor bearer, whose kingdom duties included traveling the country as an adjutant (or godly servant), amongst the notable factors Pastor Leslie discovered was that authentic ministry meant to “to meet the needs of the people.”

All of which had eventually led to his much-anticipated Pastorate tenure in 2003 when he was installed as Senior Pastor of Greater Hope Tabernacle Church  in Lawrenceville, Georgia, a milestone that unfolded just two years after he had become an ordained elder.

Nearly a decade later, however, Pastor Leslie assumed his next major ministerial assignment when he founded Abundant Life Ministries in Lawrenceville along with his beloved companion.

THIS IS HOLY GROUND 

SERVANT’S HEART — A former armor bearer, whose kingdom duties included traveling the country as an adjutant (or godly servant), amongst the notable factors Pastor Leslie discovered was that authentic ministry meant to “to meet the needs of the people.” All of which had eventually led to his much-anticipated Pastorate tenure in 2003 when he was installed as Senior Pastor of Greater Hope Tabernacle Church  in Lawrenceville, Georgia, a milestone that unfolded just two years after he had become an ordained elder.

How else to explain why she serves with keen, immeasurable excellence alongside her husband as a devoted evangelist?

“She strives to help women know their worth and value,” said a spokesperson in a detailed introduction of Lady Leslie, who also serves as director of Abundant Life Church Of Atlanta and Augusta’s Women’s Ministry, whereby she assembles and oversees programs that will enable disciple women to grow and thrive in their relationship with Christ.

Having adopted a mission in which she’s destined to “win lost souls to Christ,” Lady Leslie’s other kingdom-based responsibilities include hosting an annual women’s retreat and a monthly women’s bible study.

BEACON OF LIGHT — Officially referred to as Abundant Life Worship Center, this institution that has become a fixture in the Atlanta metropolitan area and has flourished fervently since its 2012 inception, in large part because it continues to fortify its awe-inspiring vision that’s centered on meeting people where they are, thus helping them to become fully devoted followers of Christ.

Interestingly, she is widely known for being a relationship coach, which affords her the golden opportunity to empower women of all ages, particularly through life-enhancing speeches, health and wellness, and encouraging wholeness.

The owner and adviser of the Mentor Me MasterClass — a Christian-based company and mentorship program that centers on providing spiritual oversight, wisdom, guidance, and purpose for women — Lady Leslie is an advocate for inspiring women from various walks of life to execute the essential work that would greatly enable them to savor a physically, emotionally, and spiritually-equipped healthy lifestyle.

“Our ministry is targeted toward couples and families,” Pastor Leslie said.

Now we know why.

Talk about a massive, life-changing endeavor, one that, to this couple’s distinctly unique credit, is steadily impacting and enriching the kingdom unlike never before.

Boston preacher Bishop Ronald S. Hobson, Sr. advancing the kingdom mightily as leader of The Reconstruction Church


Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine. (1 Timothy 5:17 KJV)


DALLAS — Just a few days ago, Dr. Ronald S Hobson, Sr. found himself reminiscing, among other things, about how his family had gone about making peace with Jesus Christ.

Without question, it was arguably the best discovery of his young life.

As Dr. Hobson — a Boston-area pastor who’s widely known as Bishop Hobson — explained, it all unfolded sometime after the tragic death of grandmother, during which his family consequently attended the historic Jefferson Temple Church of God In Christ in nearby North Bellport, New York.
Ironically, Bishop Hobson’s mother, Geraldine Scott, had accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, thus setting off what apparently was a spiritual domino effect throughout the Hobson household.

ON GOD’S BATTLEFIELD 

GOD’S MIGHTY SPOKESPERSON — A ministerial calling that spans approximately three decades, Ronald S. Hobson is the Senior Pastor at The Reconstruction Church.

“It was after she accepted Christ that our journey as a family into the Christian faith began,” Bishop Hobson told Making Headline News this week.

For Bishop Hobson, witnessing his mother surrender to God proved to be defining moment, of sorts, for an accomplished preacher, whose keen reputation is such that he customarily exemplifies having a heart for people.

God’s people, to be more direct.

A ministerial calling that spans approximately three decades, Bishop Hobson is the Senior Pastor at The Reconstruction Church.

MORE ON TRC: https://thereconstructionchurch.org/

Located at 80 Pleasant Street in Brockton, Massachusetts, The Reconstruction Church has adopted a notable commitment that is centered largely on serving its community through various programs, many of which are geared toward people’s spiritual needs.

“We are not hear to judge, but to help you change the way you think about your faith,” said a spokesperson for The Reconstruction Church in a detailed introduction of this flourishing ministry at https://thereconstructionchurch.org/.

A native of North Bellport, New York — a rural town of roughly 11,545 residents, according to the latest U.S. census — it’s safe to assume that Bishop Hobson, 48, undoubtedly was birthed into ministry.

He’s also is a thriving businessman as a credible credit repair specialist.

Having always looked up to and admired his pastor, Bishop Ralph L. Jefferson — “I still admire him today,” he often says — it was due in large part to his spiritual father’s unorthodox style of preaching, coupled with what Bishop Hobson describes as his “tenacity in preaching The Word” that greatly fueled his desire to want to follow in his footsteps.

PROMOTED BY GOD — Dr. Hobson was consecrated in December 2003 to the Office of Bishopric through the laying on of hands of His Eminence W. O. Kinnings in nearby Philadelphia before being reaffirmed and dually consecrated to the Office of Bishopric and Presiding Prelate of Preachers United Fellowship in August 2006 by the Episcopal Board of Bishops of Alpha & Omega Ministries, Bishop Lee A. Davis (California).

Despite the notion that being raised with eight brothers and sisters were both “amazing and discouraging” at times, Bishop Hobson is especially appreciative of the fact this his mother had raised her children to the best way she knew how, though he acknowledged that growing up in what he deems “an improvised community” had its share of challenges.

“Like any other inner-city, I was introduced to many vises and avenues that were not ideal and economically friendly,” Bishop Hobson recalls. “I had to do what I had to do to survive.”

Regardless, amongst the notable factors with which this young preacher had come to grips was that only what he does for Christ will last. So realistically, there was no running from the calling and purpose for which he was created.

MOM KNOWS BEST — For Bishop Hobson, witnessing his mother surrender to God proved to be defining moment, of sorts, for an accomplished preacher whose keen reputation is such that he customarily exemplifies having a heart for people. God’s people, to be more direct.

“The amazing part of everything was that the church became my outlet and focus,” Bishop Hobson explained. “The more I attended, the more comfortable I grew to accept this Jesus my pastor so eloquently shared through his preaching and teachings. The church became my focal point for change. My pastor took the time to teach me all he could for me to become someone or something in life. He poured into me daily values and practices of clean, godly living. He wanted to ensure that I made godly decisions in life.”

All of which practically sums up why this young preacher from a rural town on Long Island has been set aside for God’s use, all the while steadily having a massive impact in advancing the kingdom for such a time as now.

Never mind that according to Bishop Hobson, the awe-inspiring events that had ultimately given way to his divine call to ministry weren’t merely easy, he often recalls.

A native of North Bellport, New York — a rural town of roughly 11,545 residents, according to the latest U.S. census, it’s safe to assume that Bishop Hobson, 48, undoubtedly was birthed into ministry.

“It was life-changing,” he typically says without hesitation.

Having officially accepted his calling to preach to gospel at the tender age of 18, this then-teenage preacher found himself standing behind a sacred desk, giving his first sermon in October 1988.

He’s been preaching ever since.

Bishop Hobson also is a thriving businessman as a credible credit repair specialist.

“Remembering the day when my pastor laid his hands on me, he shared with me a dream I had the night before,” Bishop Hobson recalled. “The Lord knew what He showed me in my dream, but my pastor’s prophetic discernment by The Spirit of God was led to share the dream. He said, ‘Son, God has called you to preach.’ After that, I hit the floor – slain in The Spirit.”

He’s been slain in The Spirit ever since.

He hasn’t looked back ever since.

Credit the fact that He’s been sold out to God ever since.

In no particularly order.

IT’S ALL GOOD — Despite the notion that being raised with eight brothers and sisters were both “amazing and discouraging” at times, Bishop Hobson is appreciative of the fact this his mother had raised her children to the best of her capabilities, though he acknowledged that growing up in what he deems “an improvised community” had its challenges. Pictured with Bishop Hobson are his sons, Ron, Jr. and Christopher.

Having become a licensed minister the same year he delivered his first sermon, Bishop Hobson was ordained and installed as a Pastor in October 2002 by Bishop Ralph L. Harmon, Milford, DE.

 

Bishop Hobson’s mother, Geraldine Scott, had accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, thus setting off what apparently was a spiritual domino effect throughout the Hobson household.

Consequently, he was consecrated in December 2003 to the Office of Bishopric through the laying on of hands of His Eminence W. O. Kinnings in nearby Philadelphia before being reaffirmed and dually consecrated to the Office of Bishopric and Presiding Prelate of Preachers United Fellowship in August 2006 by the Episcopal Board of Bishops of Alpha & Omega Ministries, Bishop Lee A. Davis (California).

Having studied at Empire State College in Buffalo, New York, Bishop Hobson enrolled at the University of Phoenix, during which his concentration was Business Administration.  Having matriculated from Encouraging Faith Theological University with honors, Bishop Hobson is an accomplished author who wrote “Who’s Your Moses?”

KEEP ON KEEPIN’ ON — Having officially accepted his calling to preach to gospel at the tender age of 18, this then-teenage preacher found himself standing behind a sacred desk, giving his first sermon in October 1988.

“Accepting what God allowed was my new momentum and vision focus,” Bishop Hobson said of his well-publicized ministerial career. “I felt secure in knowing Chrissy was in the safest arms. I knew I had to continue to preach the Good News. I’ve learned that through the course of healing that I have to love and not hate…press to impress Christ and live the best life I could for Him, because tomorrow is not promised to anyone, not even me.”

All things considered, that, without question, was arguably the best discovering of his young life.

Texas gospel singer Bryan Ezell advancing the kingdom, following in the massive footsteps of his parents


O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth. (Psalm 96:1 KJV)


DALLAS — Diana Sheffield Richards is a dear friend to Bryan Ezell.

On Tuesday morning, she deemed it essential to enlighten her social media followers of just how much she admires Ezell, a rising fixture in this ever-so-competitive gospel music industry.

“This is so cool! I can’t wait to see my friend, Bryan Ezell, sing at the Choice Competition. And it’s for a great cause!” Richards wrote in a Facebook post, alluding to Ezell’s forthcoming appearance at the Choice Singing Competition Friday night.

PREPARE YE THE WAY 

SET ASIDE FOR GOD’S USE — A native of a small, unincorporated community known as Tom, Oklahoma, Bryan Ezell, 41, has made his presence felt as an accomplished gospel recording artist, whose immeasurable talents are steadily advancing the kingdom mightily for such a pivotal time as now.

For Ezell, Richards’ public celebratory shout out is just a microcosm of the kind of unyielding support this gifted and talent Sherman, Texas-based singer has garnered in recent years.

A native of a small, unincorporated community known as Tom, Oklahoma, Ezell, 41, has made his presence felt as an accomplished gospel recording artist, whose immeasurable talents are steadily advancing the kingdom mightily for such a pivotal time as now.

“I have been singing all of my life, and the older I got, I started thinking more about how instead of singing to other people’s music, why not make my own songs and sing them how I want to,” Ezell told Making Headline News this week. “I had an ear for music and could pay attention to the minute details of sound quality. That challenged me to begin creating favorable sounds as it was revealed to me.”

RUNNING WITH THE VISION — A gospel music tenure that spans more than 15 years, Ezell has gone to great lengths to become more of a gospel artist who customarily wears many hats, considering he possesses the immeasurable smarts as an audio engineer and music producer.

Widely known as a PK — or a Preacher’s Kid, considering he’s the son of Pastor and Mrs. James Ezell (Annie) of Latter Rain Church of God In Christ in nearby Sherman — Bryan Ezell credits his parents as his “first inspirations,” in large part because aside from literally being raised in the church, he grew up watching his father showcase his musical talents in a group called “The Inspirational Gospel Singers.”

“My mom used to sing all the time around the house, and they both made my sisters and I sing too,” Bryan Ezell recalled. “My friend, Whalion Dewberry, and his brother, the late Tony Dewberry, inspired me to play the guitar, as well as my grandpa, Lewis Joshua. I thought they were the coolest guys around as I watched them play for the church and the gospel group my dad was in.”

Talk about savoring the fruits of his labor, this for an overwhelmingly gifted PK whom, because of the divine calling on his life, is witnessing his gifts steadily make room for him.


“I get to do exactly what I love to do as an occupation while creating ways to connect with people in various ways,” said Bryan Ezell, whose musical talents accommodate mostly pre-teen to adults. “(My personal mission is) to connect with mankind on a natural level, to encourage and empower their spirit, and to show that Jesus can lead the way to a better life if we turn it around and live right.”


A product of the Ezell Legacy Group, LLC, Bryan Ezell also offers music services to individuals of all ages at his family’s Trinity One Records LLC studio.

Having begun singing a the tender age of two, amongst the notable lessons he was taught is that never should he accept anyone’s “No” when God has emphatically said “Yes.”

“Because I have been told to stick to my day job and been told “no,” Bryan Ezell explained. “And I vowed to rise above those statements, even if I had to do it myself, and that’s what I did.”

After all, if he’s heard it once, he’s likely heard it countless of times.

That is, whatever you do for Christ will last.


ADVANCING THE KINGDOM 

TRAINING HIM UP — Widely known as a PK — or a Preacher’s Kid, considering he’s the son of Pastor and Mrs. James Ezell (Annie) of Latter Rain Church of God In Christ in nearby Sherman, Texas — Bryan Ezell credits his parents as his “first inspirations,” in large part because aside from literally being raised in the church, he grew up watching his father showcase his musical talents in a group called “The Inspirational Gospel Singers.”

And, if God said it, that settles it.

Let the church say Amen.

“I didn’t give up after hearing (‘no’),” Bryan Ezell said. “I press the gas and grew from it, and that’s what I tell anybody. Abide in your calling and don’t give up if you believe you can do it, because nobody can stop your progress, but you.”

Talk about savoring the fruits of his labor, this for an overwhelmingly gifted PK whom, because of the divine calling on his life, is witnessing his gifts steadily make room for him.
