Texas author Wendi Hayman’s new book recalls ongoing affair with Pastor, fellow church members

HEALED, DELIVERED, AND SET FREE 

WHAT’S THE CHURCH 411? Published by Glory to Glory Publications, Wendi Hayman’s “The Pastor’s Secretary: What Really Happens Behind Closed Doors” depicts her emotionally-driven memory, during which she assumed an administrative role to the Pastor of the church she attended.

DALLAS — Don’t get it twisted.

Wendi Hayman would be the first to admit that she isn’t addressing the media about her newly-produced tell-all book for the sake of gaining attention, for the sake of acquiring figurative pats on back, if you will.
Rather, she’s addressing the press, in large part because it essentially aligns with the purpose for which God created her.
“God’s purpose for me is (to be) a writer and creative story teller of the realities of life,” Hayman told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “That all lead back to God’s ultimate purpose and plan for His people in the earth. This book is part of that purpose for me to be a voice for those who have suffered in silence from past mistakes and trauma.”
The book to which Hayman is alluding is her newly-assembled written work entitled, “The Pastor’s Secretary: What Really Happens Behind Closed Doors,” a spiritually-empowering, heading-turning, attention-grabbing project that figures to create a constant buzz throughout the Body of Christ — much sooner than later.

A MUST READ — Hayman’s “The Pastor’s Secretary: What Really Happens Behind Closed Doors” is a spiritually-empowering, heading-turning, attention-grabbing book that figures to create a constant buzz throughout the Body of Christ — much sooner than later.

Published by Glory to Glory Publications, Hayman’s “The Pastor’s Secretary: What Really Happens Behind Closed Doors” depicts her emotionally-driven life, during which she assumed an administrative role to the Pastor of the church she attended.

Working primarily in a volunteer role, Hayman’s primary ambition for agreeing to this post was to “sow seeds of her time” in a strategic effort of being what this writer describes as “the catalyst” she needed to gain full-time employment, according to a detailed introduction of her book by Google Books.

Having served in a similar capacity at the previous church she attended while unemployed, Hayman’s favorable deeds had ultimately given way to a positive and much-anticipated harvest which, much to her delight, led to her landing a full-time gig.

“Wendi didn’t expect that her interactions with the Pastor would cause her to be interested in him other than a working relationship,” said a Google Book spokesperson for Hayman’s new book.  “These interactions that occurred moved from being innocently platonic to indiscretions. They also put Wendi on a winding road of infidelity that she did not expect to find herself on. In full sin and rebellion against God, Wendi then found herself at a place of complete brokenness and knew that the only way to wholeness was to run back to God where she belonged.”

Hayman’s third book to date that is currently available for pre-sale ordering, this Houston-area author said her latest book has surprisingly garnered favorable feedback just as she envisioned.

“I have received numerous praise for sharing my story or transparent truth of deliverance after being in the church, serving as a Pastor’s secretary, married while having an affair with the Pastor and committing adultery with other members,” Hayman said. “I was also a victim of infidelity from my husband.


“People have told me that my transparency has helped them in the things they have suffered in silence that they’ve endured in life, have done, or things (they’ve had) done to them. It has also encouraged other women to share their own stories of overcoming trauma and some of life’s most challenging situations.”


Having admittedly caught the vision to compose “The Pastor’s Secretary: What Really Happens Behind Closed Doors” approximately a year ago, Hayman needed just shy of a year to finish a book that, as she puts it forthrightly, is synonymous somewhat to the Biblical events involving Eve’s run-in with the serpent.

“I didn’t directly come on to him, and he didn’t directly come on to me,” Hayman explained. “It all started with a subtle joke he made with a sexual undertone — Hayman is now alluding to Genesis 3:1: “and he said unto the woman” — that I responded back to with my own sexual undertone — she is now referencing Genesis 3:2: “And the woman said unto the serpent” — I had taken the bait (she is now alluding to Genesis 3:6: “And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eye).”

LEAD-OFF BATTER — A native of Houston, Hayman made her authorship debut when she witnessed the release of her fiction project, “One Hot Summer,” in 2016.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Or, as today’s millennials would say, “It was on and poppin.”

When asked what was the single, most underlying reason she chose to produce “The Pastor’s Secretary: What Really Happens Behind Closed Doors,” Hayman said: “So that the church or Christian community can live in freedom from sin, secrets, silence, and shame from things done in their lives or done to them.”

She followed that up with a non-fiction book entitled, “Blind Ambition, in 2017.

All things considered, Hayman’s latest book is starting to generate a constant media presence, this prior to its official release.

Other books are presently in the works, she said, most notably “Out Of The Ashes” and “The Family Legacy.”

To her credit, Hayman also has emerged as an ambassador, of sorts, for other aspiring authors.

“I will be hosting a coaching cafe entitled, ‘The Power Of Your Story: How To Write A Book Or Build A Brand From Your Personal Story,’” said Hayman, referring to her forthcoming appearance at the Ignite Women’s Empowerment Conference in Philadelphia on November 1-2.

Georgia entrepreneur Nicole Wrice’s Magnolia Heart Nanny Services providing efficient childcare solutions


Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14 NIV)


PAYING IT FORWARD 

HEARTS OF GOLD — The proud founder and CEO of Magnolia Heart Nanny Services of Greater Atlanta, Nicole Wrice’s company is widely known for offering a full range of childcare solutions, accompanied by the goal of offering parents the peace of mind of hiring professional, trustworthy nannies and sitters who are passionate about the care and development of children

Some two years ago, Nicole Wrice discovered a need, particularly with regards to providing what she describes as quality care for children and families.

With God, her Helper steering the way, she has devised strategic and efficient ways to meet those needs.
“It isn’t really competition that drives me,” Wrice, a Columbus, Georgia-based businesswoman, told Making Headline News this week, when asked how her competitive drive in life propelled her for business venture. “I saw that there was a need of quality care for children and families that weren’t being met. I felt like someone had to offer more, to do it better…and I knew I could do it better. So I did.”
Indeed she has, having established a strategic and flourishing endeavor that is Magnolia Magnolia Heart Nanny Services of Greater Atlanta.

The proud founder and CEO of Magnolia Heart, Wrice’s company is widely known for offering a full range of childcare solutions, accompanied by the goal of offering parents the peace of mind of hiring professional, trustworthy nannies and sitters, who are passionate about the care and development of children.

Magnolia Heart Nanny Services of Greater Atlanta is located at 4 Bradley Park Court, Unit 2H.

“Whether parents are looking for a traditional nanny, a local babysitter for date nights, event childcare for a wedding, or backup childcare for employees, we are ready to connect them with a highly qualified caregiver to meet their unique needs,” said Wrice, 43, providing a detailed overview of Magnolia Heart.


DID YOU KNOW…

  • Magnolia Heart Babysitters  is a database that brings local parents and babysitters together, offering parents the peace of mind of hiring a Magnolia dedicated babysitter that has been fully screened, background checked, and CPR certified.
  • Munchkins Corporate Care is the newest addition to the Magnolia Heart family, and offers organizations from small businesses to fortune 500 companies the opportunity to increase employee productivity, morale, and retention by offering a competitive back up childcare plan for working parents.  We also provide on-site event care for conventions, conferences, and other corporate events and, 
  • Magnolia Heart Nanny Services  (or MHNS) works closely with families to find fully screened, professional nannies that meet the unique needs of each family. We do all the work, and you interview and select the candidate that will be the best fit for your family.

A company that went into full operations in 2017, Magnolia Heart featured ventures: Magnolia Heart Nanny Services, Magnolia Heart Babysitters, and Munchkins Corporate Care.

A native of Homerville, Georgia, Wrice emphasized, among other things, that her primary objective through her progressive, thriving business is to routinely provide families with the quality and efficient care they deserve.

“I like knowing that I am making difference in the lives of children, parents, and nannies,” Wrice said. “I like helping nannies to grow and develop their skills and hearing success stories of how much they love the children and family when I check in with them after placement.

IN THE NEWS — Much to their delight, Gene and Nicole Wrice are starting to generate mainstream media headlines for all the right reasons. Gene Wrice is a United State Army Major.

The more she witnesses and hears of these proverbial feel-good stories, the more she becomes overwhelmingly grateful of the notion that she’s walking in the divine purpose for which she was created.


“I love hearing success stories from parents and nannies, like the parents who told me that their child with special needs is happy and secure and able to participate in extracurricular activities with the help of his nanny, rather than being kicked out of day care centers,” Wrice recalled. “I’m excited to see employees strive for their potential and feel cared for when businesses and corporations offer backup care services.”


All things considered, providing what Wrice and staff dub as “total care” is absolutely essential, particularly as it relates to the sustained success of Magnolia Heart.

“Our nannies work with any age and we even offer adult special needs care,” said Wrice, adding that her company’s private and corporate events typically offer childcare to children ranging in the ages of eight weeks to 12 years old.”

Much to Wrice’s delight, greater things are on the horizon for her endeavor in the coming months, she said.

Amongst those is the startup of Magnolia Heart Senior Care, which is scheduled to officially go into operations sometime in 2020.

“Also, we work with nannies of all ages to place them with the right family — many are college students — but we also have former teachers, nurses, and even grandmothers,” Wrice said.

Wrice’s Magnolia Heart Nanny Services’ original site is based in Columbus, Georgia. Consequently, there eventually arose a high demand for a second office that’s housed in nearby Atlanta.

FAMILY FOCUS — A company that went into full operations in 2017, Magnolia Heart featured avenues include: Magnolia Heart Nanny Services, Magnolia Heart Babysitters, and Munchkins Corporate Care.

“Our event care nannies work throughout the southeastern United States,” Wrice said. “Our newest sister company, Munchkins Corporate Care, is ready to assist businesses with back up childcare for their employees nationwide.”

To her credit, Wrice boasts an array of experience, which has greatly enabled her to functioning mightily in her element as the face of Magnolia Heart, considering she’s a military spouse of 19-plus years and a working mother of seven children, one of whom is of special needs.

“I have decades of experience working in the childcare industry as a nanny for military families,” said Wrice, the former owner of Little Bizzy Bees Daycare who also boasts more than two decades of experience in the medical field.

“So I can accurately say I’ve spent most of my life focused on helping children grow, develop, and learn in a loving, safe environment. I personally understand the enormous obstacles that parents face when looking for reliable childcare, especially for children who have special needs,” continued Wrice, adding that she was inspired by her daughter with special needs and her late father to advance Magnolia Heart.

Interestingly, Wrice also credits her grandmother for having played an integral role in her entrepreneurship success.

“A lot of my passion comes from her,” Wrice said of her grandmother. “We have a large family.”

A little more than two years removed from having established what is shaping up to be a company whose best and brightest days are well ahead of it, Wrice doesn’t shy away from the notion that Magnolia Heart is positioning itself fervently to have a national impact — much sooner than later.

“Seeing the need for quality childcare for working families led me to start a full service nanny agency that has a business model focused on the well-being of both the family and the nanny,” she said. “We’re looking to do business with corporations. We offer corporate backup care and corporate on-site event childcare.”

That’s not all, Wrice acknowledged.

“We’re looking to do business with corporations through Munchkin Corporate Care and that’s where we do backup childcare for corporations and their employees,” Wrice added. “They can give us a call or they can request a meeting. We are nationwide for onsite event childcare and we are nationwide for corporate backup childcare.”

Texas author Yvette D. McGill’s God-assigned vision comes full circle courtesy of her featured book


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)


THE GREAT EXCHANGE 

WOMAN WITH A VISION — Texas author Yvette D. McGill was quick to assume her latest kingdom assignment when she diligently put it on display until her God-mandated vision had come full circle, courtesy of an awe-inspiring book entitled, “theEXCHANGE,”  her featured written work that is approximately three months removed from its much-anticipated release.

Yvette D. McGill did just what she was supposed to do with the vision once God strategically introduced her to it.

She ran with it.
To her credit, she didn’t just run with it.
Rather, she picked it back up and diligently put it on display until her God-mandated vision had come full circle, courtesy of an awe-inspiring book entitled, “theEXCHANGE,”  her featured written work that is approximately three months removed from its much-anticipated release.
“God gave me the vision to write the book on March 22, 2016,” McGill, a  La Marque, Texas native, told Making Headline News this week. “I was sitting in a workshop with two famous authors, learning how to write a book and literally the room went black as if it was just me and God in the room.”

BUY YVETTE D. McGILL’S BOOK HERE: http://yvettedenisemcgill.com/

From a spiritual perspective, it essentially was a room that included McGill and her Creator.

How else to explain why her life-changing vision as an author has come to fruition?

“It was then He said, ‘You will write a book. You will name it #theEXCHANGE,’” McGill recalled.

In playing off of words, there is a valid reason behind such an intriguing, spiritually-gut checking exchange that surfaced between God and McGill, this author explained.

“(He said), ‘The reason why (I assigned you to write this book) is because when you were 25 years old, I told you to give your mom forgiveness for the difficult childhood you had. (He said to me), ‘When your daughter was 25, you had to ask her for forgiveness for lying to her about who her dad really was,’” McGill recalled. “He went on to say, ‘If you had not given her forgiveness when I told you, I would not have been able to allow your daughter to forgive you now.’”

As McGill explained, it was just the encounter she needed to witness in order to appropriately carry out her God-mandated vision as a new author.

A book she finished composing in January of this year — “I finished in January 2019, but had hoped to release it on Jan 2, 2019, my 51st birthday,” she said — McGill’s #theEXCHANGE was officially released two months later.

Much to her delight, it has been short of impressive ever since.

“The single most underlying reason I wrote this book is so that absolutely nobody else would be able to tell my truth,” McGill said a project she needed approximately two months to assemble. “I wanted it in writing why I did what I did.”

There are, in fact, other books in which McGill is involved mightily.

Prior to #theEXCHANGE, which is her second written work, McGill composed “Boss’d Up On Purpose,” a collaborative August 2018-released project she wrote with 12 other writers.

Then there is “It’s Not That Easy,” McGill’s third book that’s centered largely on her steadfastly reminding er audience to “stop telling me to get over it!”

This March 2019-released book, in fact, is comprised of 10 other authors, many of whom are mental illness survivors.


THE LUKE 18:1 FACTOR 

McGill also has played a major hand in the soon-to-be-released book entitled, “Soulful Prayers,” a coed collaboration project that is comprised of 51 writers, all of whom have grasped a thorough understanding of the power of prayer.

McGill also has played a major hand in the soon-to-be-released book entitled, “Soulful Prayers,” a coed collaboration project that is comprised of 51 writers, all of whom have grasped a thorough understanding of the power of prayer.

As for her latest book, McGill acknowledged there is, by all accounts, a divine message she aspires to get across to her readers.

“The divine message I’m sending through this book is no matter how life started out for you, you have to power to make the necessary changes to get it right,” said McGill, adding that the feedback has been overwhelmingly amazing. “And right should consist of who did God send you here to be…nothing more or less should matter above His plan.

“I am truly an example of the saying, ‘I’m just a nobody, trying to tell somebody that Jesus saves.’”

ALL IN GOD’S PLAN — In playing off of words, there is a valid reason behind such an intriguing, spiritually-gut checking exchange that surfaced between God and McGill, this author explained.

As McGill can boldly profess today unlike never before, had it not been for the Lord Who was on her side, there’s no telling where she’d be.

“He could have easily allowed me to die in my sins,” said McGill, “but He thought so much of me, He used my mess for a message and allowed me to exchange my truth for others’ transformation.”

IN HER OWN WORDS — “The divine message I’m sending through this book is no matter how life started out for you, you have to power to make the necessary changes to get it right,” said McGill, adding that the feedback has been overwhelmingly amazing. “And right should consist of who did God send you here to be…nothing more or less should matter above His plan.

Talk about running with a monumental vision.

And not just running with it.

But rather picking it back up and diligently put it on display until her God-mandated vision had come full circle, courtesy of an awe-inspiring book.

Yep. That’s just like God.

Simona Badger’s S Badger Empowerment and Consulting Services, LLC is nothing short of brilliant

WOMAN ON THE MOVE

MAKING MAJOR MOVES — Simona Badger’s S Badger Empowerment and Consulting Services, LLC, a credible, progressive Newark, New Jersey-based venture that customarily provides what is known as culturally sensitive, trauma focused psychotherapy, and professional education to the communities she serves.

DALLAS — To her distinctly unique credit, Simona Badger can be appropriately described as an empowerment extradionaire.

Consider, for instance, how Badger had gone about establishing S Badger Empowerment and Consulting Services, LLC, a credible, progressive Newark, New Jersey-based venture that customarily provides what is known as culturally sensitive, trauma focused psychotherapy, and professional education to the communities she serves.
“I’ve always known as a child that I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives,” Badger, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, explaining how her competitive drive in life has greatly propelled her for her business venture.
“Growing up, I was interested in social issues such as inequality, women’s rights, and racism. Starting my own business gave me the freedom to serve my community on a deeper level than if I was working for someone. A lot of the things that I accomplished in my life — degrees, marriage, children, business and finding my purpose — are all things I wanted to achieve before I turned 40.”

Because of the purpose for which God has created her, Badger has accomplished that and more — this for a thriving, 39-year-old businesswoman.

Armed with over a decade of experience in her chosen industry — most notably through treating survivors of domestic and sexual violence — Badger’s mission is centered largely on (but isn’t limited to) educating and supporting teens and adults about unhealthy relationships.

Interestingly, her upcoming book will provide a more in-depth and strategic emphasis on assisting teens and young adults, particularly with regards to healing from unhealthy relationships.

“Simona believes that her gift is to educate and support as many lives plagued by inter-generational and trans- generational trauma, and she believes her work would be incomplete unless she is able to give back to her native country (Jamaica) through her volunteering work,” said a spokesperson for Badger’s S Badger Empowerment and Consulting Services LLC.


MORE ON BADGER’S VENTURE: https://www.sbempowerment.org/

Much to her delight, Badger will be afforded the golden opportunity to share with the masses her longstanding mission through her organization when she host the Changing The Language of Men’s Health Conference on June 22, at Newark’s Source of Knowledge Bookstore, located at 867 Broad Street.

A conference that will be highlighted by what organizers have dubbed, “Real Talk With A Dynamic Panel Of Men,” tickets for this event can be purchased by calling 973.392.9473 or by paying via PayPal at: http://paypal.me/simonabadger.

“The reason why I’m hosting this conference and focusing on men’s mental health is because for far too long, men have suffered in silence, which has negatively impacted families and communities,” Badger said. “I grew up seeing how toxic masculinity affected males in my own family of origin. I remember seeing the males in my family drink away their problems, gamble away their money and date multiple women at a time due to being stressed.”

For what it’s worth, she credits her immeasurable experiences as a foster care caseworker and New York City Administration for Children Services clinical consultant through The Child Center of New York for her notable accomplishments of becoming what she refers to as a “momprenuer,” as well as a psychotherapist, educator, and advocate.

SAVE THE DATE

Bay Area business professional Sheila Ann Pullum Jr. goes from high school dropout to well-educated entrepreneur

DEFYING MONUMENTAL ODDS 

HOLDING IT DOWN — A native of Oakland, California, Sheila Ann Pullum Jr.’s entrepreneurship stint include functioning as credit repair consultant through the globally-acclaimed company, whose longstanding financial services venture that was organized as a strategic, effective way to support the financial opportunities of consumers.

Sheila Ann Pullum Jr. could be appropriately described as a resourceful businesswoman, one whom has always kept what she deems a “good paying” job.

Still, aside from acquiring a steady flow of income through her regular 9-to-5 gig, Pullum Jr. admittedly has always clung to even loftier goals and ambitions, many of which centered on her quest to thrive as an accomplished entrepreneur.

MORE ON SHEILA PULLUM JR.: www.sheilapullum.com

Generally, this is done largely by implementing positive habits to create and maintain a strong financial future, Pullum Jr. told Making Headline News this week.

“Our unique collection of services have been carefully selected to provide protection and opportunity over the many aspects of your finances — all combined into one easy-to-use system,” Pullum Jr. explained. “Our membership can help to ensure you and your family are safeguarding the assets that you’ve earned and those you have to come.”

A thriving, progressive venture that caters mostly to individuals ranging from ages 19 to “all the way to 70 years old,” Pullum Jr. acknowledged, this Hayward, California-based businesswoman said it is due in large part her keen passion, coupled with her diligently displaying a heart for people that have contributed mightily to her sustained success.

“My passion has always been helping others, so I love being the vehicle to betterment, whether by assisting someone in the credit repair process or by helping someone start a home based business,” Pullum Jr. said. “Our program has helped people achieve goals of homeownership, getting approved for business loans, and simply upgrading lives through the power of credit and entrepreneurship.”

Once a high school dropout, who resumed her education and obtained her GED, Pullum Jr. steadily defied the odds when she had ultimately graduated from the University of Phoenix in 2004 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Services BSHS.

To her credit, her business-related achievements have been nothing short of remarkable since she delved off into the ever-so-competitive world of entrepreneurship.

That’s because Pullum Jr. is one of the top 65 producers in her company, a feat that resulted in her being awarded a seven-day cruise on the largest ship in the world, during which she traveled to Bay Islands, Honduras, Costa Maya, Cozumel Mexico, and Nassau Bahamas.

Interestingly, her entrepreneurial success has been put on display in such places as various parts of Florida, Las Vegas, and Houston, just to name a few.

As for her personal mission for functioning in her selected line of work, Pullum Jr. embraces the notion that experience undoubtedly has been her best teacher, in some aspects.

“I was never taught about credit and financial literacy, so like many others, I made mistakes and ended up with bad credit,” Pullum Jr. said. “Once I fixed my credit, my life changed for the better.”

Once her life changed, she sensed she had no choice but to devise ways to help change and enrich the lives of others.


“I felt it was my moral responsibility to share (my knowledge) with others,” Pullum Jr. said. “We cannot do better until we know better. “My personal mission for doing this is educate and assist others and to create generation wealth, retire my parents, and to build a legacy for my sons, grandsons, godchildren, and nieces and nephews. Also, I must have control of my time and income.”


Besides her fellow colleagues and business partners, Pullum Jr. said that arguably her grandest inspirations are Les Brown, Tony Robbins, Iyanla Vanzant, Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry, Myles Munroe, and Jim Rohn, among others.

“(These) are influencers who have inspired me to push past my limiting beliefs and to fight for the life that I deserve,” Pullum Jr. said.

A little less than two years removed from having started her business venture, Pullum has become a fixture for hosting what is known as weekly overviews in the Bay Area.


DESTINY STEPS 

“I consider myself a growth advocate and mindset mentor, encouraging others to stand in their power,” Pullum Jr. said. “(I love) helping people get from where they are to where they desire to be, to break the crabs in a bucket theory as I grow I reach back for others.

“Nothing in life is easy, but we have to choose our hard. Growth starts with the belief that you are capable of doing something different and stepping out of your comfort zone to greatness.”

Well said by a thriving, West Coast businesswoman, one who’s gone from a high school dropout to a well-educated entrepreneur in her own right.

Alabama author Monique Pettaway-Ray savoring the ‘abundant life’ Christ came to give us through a new book

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. (Romans 8:18 NIV)


Monique Pettaway-Ray was in the process of living her best life.

At least, she sensed she was.

As Pettaway-Ray recalled like yesterday, she was approximately six months removed from having exchanged nuptials with the man of her dreams.

POINTING TOWARD THE HEAVENS — A native of Saraland, Alabama, Monique Pettaway-Ray is amongst a gallery of accomplished authors who have joined forces to compose the book, “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises” which is scheduled to be officially released in December.

As if that wasn’t enough to bring her to all smiles, she had eventually landed a rather commendable entry-level position as a middle school science instructor in Huntsville, Alabama.

Life, as she knew it, was the life she sensed she fully deserved, was the life she had worked so diligently to reap and possess with God, her Helper, leading the way.

Then just like that, the enemy — just as he always does — had ultimately showed his true colors, considering Pettaway-Ray’s life had suddenly “imploded,” according to a spokesperson for her book entitled, “Incarcerated But Free: How To find Freedom From Your Mental Prison.”

LEAD OFF HITTER — Having made her authorship debut a little more than a decade ago, Pettaway-Ray’s “Incarcerated But Free: How To find Freedom From Your Mental Prison” took somewhere in the neighborhood of about five years to compose.

That’s because her newlywed husband was consequently convicted for murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole.

“A vital part of her life was ripped from her and Monique didn’t know how to cope,” according to a spokesperson in a detailed breakdown of her September 2007 released book.

Fast forward some 11 years later, Pettaway-Ray, a longtime educator for the Mobile (Ala.) County Public Schools System, has deemed it essential to collectively share of her assortment of life-changing testimonies through another awe-inspiring project along with a host of other writers.

A native of  Saraland, Alabama, Pettaway-Ray is amongst a gallery of accomplished authors who have joined forces to compose the book, “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises.”

ONE PRECIOUS, GODLY GIFT — An empowering, kingdom-advancing written document, “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises” is forwarded by Flint, Michigan-based author Precious S. Brown and is scheduled to make its official release on the market on December 17.

An empowering, kingdom-advancing written document, “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises” is forwarded by Flint, Michigan-based author Precious S. Brown and is scheduled to make its official release on the market on December 17.

During a recent interview with Making Headline News, Pettaway-Ray was complementary of Brown for obeying the Voice of God by establishing a notable platform for her and other authors to tell of God’s goodness through their slew of trials and tribulations.

“I chose to be a part of this book, because there are so many people who are living in their own mental prison who don’t have a support system or guidance to help them overcome their pains,” Pettaway-Ray said. “This book will help women find healing and support they are seeking.”

All things considered, amongst the things about which Pettaway-Ray found especially intriguing was Brown’s keen ability to fortify agape love, coupled with her willingness to display transparency.

FINDING HER SPIRITUAL NICHE — Pettaway-Ray, a longtime educator for the Mobile (Ala.) County Public Schools System, has deemed it essential to collectively share of her assortment of life-changing testimonies through another awe-inspiring project along with a host of other writers.

“I began the journey of writing this book when I teamed up with Precious Brown of Kilgore Publishing,” Pettaway-Ray explained. “She told me about her vision of this current book and when I heard the title, I truly felt in my spirit that this was a book I definitely wanted to be a part of, because I believe everyone has a story and that everyone’s story can inspire hope and change someone’s life.”

Having made her authorship debut a little more than a decade ago, Pettaway-Ray’s “Incarcerated But Free: How To find Freedom From Your Mental Prison” took somewhere in the neighborhood of about five years to compose.

As for her latest project, it didn’t take as long, in large part because all things considered, God had already showed Himself strong amid the enemy having shown his true colors.

IN AWE OF GOD — As for Pettaway-Ray’s latest project, it didn’t take as long to complete, in large part because all things considered, God had already showed Himself strong amid the enemy having shown his true colors.

“Before God called me to the ministry, I was broken, hurt, and confused. It was only after I rededicated my life to Christ that God began to reveal to me His purpose for my life. Since then, God has delivered me from my pain and now I am on a mission to help women overcome their challenges and be healed from their past hurts. — Monique Pettaway-Ray


“Because when a woman can be healed from her hurts, she is free to live that abundant life that Christ promised in scripture.”

The abundant, much to Pettaway-Ray’s delight, is something by which she has thoroughly possessed even after having endured arguably the darkest season of her life.

Yep. That’s just like God.

NOT TODAY, DEVIL — The abundant, much to Pettaway-Ray’s delight, is something by which she has thoroughly possessed even after having endured arguably the darkest season of her life.

“The message I am sending to people is that regardless of what you have been through or what experiences you have had, you can still be a vessel used by God,” Pettaway-Ray said. “You just have to realize that there are gifts and talents that lie deep inside and God just wants us to be willing to use those gifts for his glory.

“A gift is not a gift unless you give it to someone,” Pettaway continued. “God expects us to use our gifts for the purpose of helping others. It’s never too late to fulfill passion, purpose, or the power that God has placed inside of you. God only wants a willing vessel.”

Pettaway-Ray would know for sure, considering she’s a vessel who has deemed it a foregone conclusion to be used by God Almighty.

Oklahoma City author Tohnyonah Jackson’s bend-but-don’t-break faith gives way to a life-changing book

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


All jokes aside.

Tohnyonah Jackson is a little more than two years removed from having witnessed the much-anticipated release of her very first book.

BEND BUT DON’T BREAK FAITH STEPPER — And so it came to pass on May 31, 2016 that Tohnyonah Jackson, a native of Oklahoma City, had officially made her authorship debut with release of her spiritually gut-checking written document entitled, “Bending But Not Breaking.”

And boy, it’s surely one that is steadily advancing the kingdom for such a time as now.

“I used to tell my friends I was going to write a book, but it was in a joking way,” Jackson told Making Headline News during a weekend interview. “It didn’t manifest until after my grandfather on my dad’s side of the family passed away in August of 2013, a few days after my first grandchild was born.”

For Jackson, it also was a seemingly dark, turbulent season of her life, during which God had deemed it essential to place her faith on trial unlike never before.

“I battled with God, because that’s not what I wanted to do. I was trying to get into nursing school…test after test, fail after fail. I didn’t understand why I was not passing the tests, missing by 1 to 5 points. Later I realized I wasn’t being obedient and had to write.” — Author Tohnyonah Jackson 


And the rest, as they say, was history.

And so it came to pass on May 31, 2016 that Jackson, a native of Oklahoma City, had officially made her authorship debut with release of her spiritually gut-checking written document entitled, “Bending But Not Breaking,” a 62-page, self-published project that depicts the life of a young girl who wanted to be loved by her family, but according to the writer who’s widely known as “Author Tohnyonah,” she wound up discovering that love in her family came disguised in abuse, alcohol, drugs, staying in the homes of several family members.

A MUST READ — A 62-page, self-published project that depicts the life of a young girl who wanted to be loved by her family, but according to the writer who’s widely known as “Author Tohnyonah,” she wound up discovering that love in her family came disguised in abuse, alcohol, drugs, staying in the homes of several family members.

As if those personal encounters weren’t enough to rattle and disrupt the life of this young girl, Tohnyonah recalled having been molested as a child, a development that had ultimately led to her being adopted by another family, which unfortunately had given way to her further being molested and abused.

But God…

However, despite her assortment of struggles and turbulence, Author Tohnyonah steadfastly clung to unwavering faith, believing that God had a strategic plan for her life from the outset, a plan to prosper and not harm her, a plan that would ultimately blossom into a life-changing testimony for the ages, a plan that would catapult her to the purpose for which God created her.

“In this book, (Author Tohnyonah) sees that God’s loving provision doesn’t give more than one can handle,” said a spokesperson for Jackson’s book in a detail breakdown at Amazon.com.

THE ROMANS 8:18 FACTOR — Even upon the sudden deaths of her beloved mother and close aunt, Jackson sensed that she had to carry out of her God-mandated assignment to compose her book.

For Jackson, her quest to assemble her first book came courtesy of her abstaining from leaning unto her own understanding and seeking and consulting God for a sense of direction.

“I didn’t know what to write until I asked and the Holy Spirit, Who said, ‘The beginning,’” Jackson explained. “And so I did.”

Even upon the sudden deaths of her beloved mother and close aunt, Jackson sensed that she had to carry out of her God-mandated assignment to compose her book.

“I didn’t understand why (they passed away), because I was being obedient (to God),” Jackson said. So from August 2013 through May 2016, through all the losses, my book was released the day before my birthday, May 31, 2016.”

SHE’S STILL STANDING — Despite her assortment of struggles and turbulence, Author Tohnyonah steadfastly clung to unwavering faith, believing that God had a strategic plan for her life from the outset, a plan to prosper and not harm her, a plan that would ultimately blossom into a life-changing testimony for the ages, a plan that would catapult her to the purpose for which God created her.

Much to Jackson’s delight, it is a book that has garnered a slew of rave reviews.

“The message is you do not have to live in your past. Whatever God has taken you through, there is a purpose, so trust the process,” Jackson said. “While writing there were a lot of obstacles that fell in the way to discourage me, but as I wrote, chains were being broken. I was being released from the bondage of hurt, guilt, depression that I didn’t realize I was depressed.”

That’s not all to which Jackson had come to grips amid her season in the wilderness.

“(I learned to embrace) self-love and, most of all, I was gaining more love for God,” Jackson said. “I realize God created me for a special purpose starting with my name (she’s now chuckling). I live by I am fearfully marvelously made.”

All of which sums up why 2019, like 2016, figures to be a season of even more manifested blessings for this brilliantly gifted writer.

DOING IT GOD’S WAY — For Jackson, her quest to assemble her first book came courtesy of her abstaining from leaning unto her own understanding and seeking and consulting God for a sense of direction.

“I haven’t had any speaking engagements, but my vision for 2019 is to start going to speak in different cities to young teenage mothers, young girls in foster care, and young women and girls that have been sexually (abused) and feel like they can’t love,” Jackson said.

What a difference obeying the Voice of God has made.

All jokes aside.

Louisiana author Brenda Robinson obeys God’s Voice, savors her new book come to pass

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES BRENDA RAY ROBINSON 


For Brenda Ray Robinson, her much-anticipated breakthrough came wrapped up in a spiritual confession, of sorts.

“God spoke to me through my healing process three years ago, but I ignored His voice,” Robinson, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the pivotal and memorable events that had ultimately given way to her having delved off into the competitive world of authorship. “I was hurt and shame. I didn’t want the world to know my business.”

What Robinson had eventually discovered, meanwhile, was that God wasn’t merely commanding that she tell all of her personal business.

Credit Robinson for having finally stepping aside and letting God be God.

As time progressed, coupled with Robinson’s fervent act of obedience, God’s steadfastly began to heal and mature and, much to her delight, He began to bless her mightily for such a time as now.

“I still said, ‘Oh no, I won’t do it,’” Robinson said. “It took me two years to finally obey God’s voice. God said, ‘Didn’t I tell you everything will be okay and to have the book out by 201(7)?’ God told me to take the 7 out of 17 and that meant completion and 201(8) will be new beginning.”


And the rest, as they say, was history.

OH TASTE AND SEE — To her credit, coupled with the divine calling on her life, Robinson has appropriately discovered her purpose amid arguably the most tumultuous season of her life.

Thank God she was determined to possess a breakthrough even when reaping a breakthrough seemed very much farfetched.

“I wanted to let go, but God said, ‘No, I got you,’” Robinson recalled. “God said, ‘I will bless you and your way will be smooth.’ God let me know that He will comfort me and give me the strength to carry out this task so (my husband and I) can be a blessing to help other marriages and relationships heal.

“God gave me the title alone with the chapters that will fit my story and help heal hearts.”

Yep. That’s just like God, always providing for His people a way of escape.

Credit Robinson for having finally stepping aside and letting God be God.
