New Jersey prep football standout Kavon Chambers clinging to high hopes of acquiring a scholarship

HOLDIN’ IT DOWN

LEADER OF THE PACK — To his credit, Kavon Chambers has held his own as one of Saint John Vianney’s marquee players. A 5-foot-11, 205-pound speedy running back, Chambers has turned in valiant contributions for a Lancers, a Holmdel, New Jersey-based private institution that opens postseason play November 15 at Donovan Catholic, according to Maxpreps.com.

Kavon Chambers entered the 2019 campaign for Saint John Vianney High, assuming the businesslike approach.

That’s because Chambers is a senior, meaning as far as he’s concerned, he had to strategically devise ways to — you know — get the most out of his final year as a prep football player.
“(I’m) giving each and every play my all and trying to get to 1-0 every week with my team,” Chambers told Making Headline News during a recent interview.

COLLEGE PARTY — While Chambers’ quest to sign a National Letter of Intent in the coming months remains a mystery, the possibility exists that his dream of playing college football could become a reality. According to Chambers, he’s garnered letters of interest from Purdue, East Carolina, the University of Buffalo, the University of Richmond, Central Connecticut, Princeton, and Rutgers.

In a year he’s dubs a crucial one, considering he’s lobbying to play at the collegiate level, Chambers has gone to great lengths to turn the heads of scouts and recruiters.

Through eight games to date, he’s amassed 653 yards on 84 carries, according to stats obtained through Maxpreps.com.

His biggest game occurred in 33-0 win over visiting Freehold Boro on October 11 during which he manufactured 209 rushing yards on 12 carries and three scores for a Saint John Vianney squad that won two of its last four outings en route to advancing to the playoffs.

Through eight regular season games, Chambers averaged 93.3 yards per outing and 7.8 yards per carry.

In a year he’s dubs a crucial one, considering he’s lobbying to play at the collegiate level, Chambers has gone to great lengths to turn the heads of scouts and recruiters.

Interestingly, while he admittedly could have done more to boost his recruiting stock during the course of his prep tenure, Chambers doesn’t shy away from the notion that he undoubtedly has what it takes to play at the next level.

“I just need a chance to make it happen,” said Chambers, when asked what he’d like for college scouts to know about him. “Whatever college offers me a scholarship will be getting a motivated and determined student athlete that works each and every day to be great.”

Chambers’ father, Marcus Chamber, is amongst those who has witnessed his son’s progress on the field in recent years.

Like so many others who say Kavon possesses the mechanics to play collegiate ball, Marcus is hopeful his son earns a fair chance.


“(Coaches and scouts) say that he’s a good, all-around person and athlete on and off the field and that he is a Division 1 player with a bright future ahead of him,” said Marcus Chambers, assessing his son’s overall body of work. “I was astounded, but knew since the day one he was born he had greatness in him. The sky is the limit for my son, because he can do all things thru Christ that strengthens him.”


While Kavon Chambers’ quest to sign a National Letter of Intent in the coming months remains a mystery, the possibility exists that his dream of playing college football could very well become a reality.

According to Kavon, he’s garnered letters of interest from Purdue, East Carolina, the University of Buffalo, the University of Richmond, Central Connecticut, Princeton, and Rutgers.

Not bad for a solid student athlete whom, as he prepares for postseason play in mid-November, realizes he’s still afforded the golden opportunity to make a favorable impression, particularly with regards to fulfilling his ultimate goal.


PRAYING WITHOUT CEASING

“(I’m) giving each and every play my all and trying to get to 1-0 every week with my team,” Chambers told Making Headline News during a recent interview.

As Kavon emphasized, though, he’s taking it one game at a time — postseason included.

“(I’m) giving (it my) all each and every day and not letting any days go by without working hard,” Kavon said. “I’ve got three younger brothers who look up to me, and everything I do is for them and my family.”

All of which practically sums up why this gifted student athlete is committed to assuming the businesslike approach.

Every single chance he gets.

New Jersey Pastor Dr. Laura Anderson defies rash of odds en route to accepting her God-mandated calling


“He who pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor.” (Proverbs 21:21)


GOD IS WITH HER

GOD’S LEADING LADY — A native of Farmersville, Alabama, Apostle Dr. Laura Anderson, 55, is the Senior Pastor of Emanuel Healing Deliverance Cathedral, her Bayville, New Jersey-area ministry that is located at 91 Atlantic City Boulevard.

During the infancy stages of her teenage life, Apostle Dr. Laura Anderson wouldn’t be what most would describe as a typical teenager.

Consider, for instance, her notable upbringing in the church.
“Received the Holy Ghost and baptism in Jesus Name at the age of 14,” Dr. Anderson, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling arguably one of the memorable spiritual moments of her life, during which she had effectively sold out to Almighty God within the walls of Apostolic Fountain Ministry Birthing Church Of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
And the rest, as they say, was history.
Consequently, that Dr. Anderson had deemed it essential to live for Christ, by all accounts, had given way to her spiritual gifts being discovered in ways unimaginable, particularly by her then-Pastor, James Whitmore, who recognized her gift of the prophesy some two years later.

A ministerial tenure that spans nearly four decades, Dr. Anderson became a Prophet in 1980. Her Pastoral tenure commenced in 2000.

“(I was being) used by God mightily at a young age,” said Dr. Anderson, who eventually served in what was known as missionary outreach, all the while exposing her immeasurable talents as a playwright and youth advisor.

Years later, Dr. Anderson began to steadily have a valiant impact in the Body of Christ, a trend that ultimately led to her becoming an ordain elder, as well as what was known as an office prophet, during which she was afforded the golden opportunity to display her administrative skills.

A native of Farmersville, Alabama, Dr. Anderson, 55, is the Senior Pastor of Emanuel Healing Deliverance Cathedral, her Bayville, New Jersey-area ministry that is located at 91 Atlantic City Boulevard.

For Dr. Anderson, her rise to evolving as a fixture in the Body of Christ comes amid a rash of unfavorable circumstances through which she’s managed to persevere and conquer.

“When chosen for the nursing administrative position, pastoral office, because of such negative influences in my life — verbal, sexual, physical and mental abuse of dyslexia and other learning disability — I was a woman who struggled with academic challenges,” Dr. Anderson recalled. “(I was) told I would never be nothing and was tormented by the spirit of apathy and abandonment.”

Still, such turmoil never in any way, shape, or form deterred this devout woman of faith from pressing and navigating toward the purpose for which God created her.


FAITH & FAMILY FOCUS 

Having initially began witnessing God set her aside for His use in ministry a little more than two decades ago, Dr. Anderson is a part of a family of resourceful preachers including her husband, Pastor William Anderson, her brother, Mikelin Oliver, her daughter, and her daughters, Prophetess Precious Lester and Elder Takola Gonzalez, both of whom work alongside her in ministry.

If nothing else, she was destined to become an even bigger and better version of herself with God, her Helper, steering the way.

“After embracing my call to the office as a Pastor, I experienced the withdrawal of those I supported and I called family and friends,” Dr. Anderson said. “(It was a) betrayal of covenant, which causes great emotional pain.”

At times, Dr. Anderson explained, such a tear-jerking, seemingly uncontrollable sequence appeared downright discomforting and uncalled for — for the most part.


“Many reneged on their promises, and I found myself in a dessert place alone, rejected, lonely, suspicious of not knowing who I could trust,” Dr. Anderson said. “I began to doubt that God had chosen me to lead His people.”


But what she had ultimately found out was that God’s ways were far more superior to hers — and anybody else’s for that matter.

“When I allow God voice to overpower all of my doubt, torment, shame and false influence, He taught me to trust Him every step of the way,” Dr. Anderson said. “I began to see it wasn’t what others thought about me or even what I thought about myself. I realize God chose and predestined me for the mandate that He put on by life, not man.”

SHE’S SOLD OUT — That Dr. Anderson had deemed it essential to live for Christ, by all accounts, had given way to her spiritual gifts being discovered, particularly by her then-Pastor, James Whitmore, who recognized her gift of the prophesy some two after she had become baptized with the precious Holy Ghost.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Through her immeasurable gifts to the Body of Christ, Dr. Anderson founded Laura Anderson Ministries in 2007, which is widely regarded as an international evangelist ministry, of sorts.

Nearly a decade later, she was officially installed as Senior Pastor of Emmanuel Healing Deliverance Cathedral, a milestones that has greatly enabled her to execute Doctrines Of Divinity, all the while assuming the illustrious offices of Epistle Bishop and Affirm Apostle.

HE WAS THERE ALL THE TIME — For Dr. Anderson, her rise to evolving as a fixture in the Body of Christ comes amid a rash of unfavorable circumstance through which she’s managed to persevere and conquer.

“I continue to soar, knowing God does not call the qualified; He qualifies the called,” said Dr. Anderson, who interestingly survived — and “defeated” — a premature death 1986 amid a battle with depression. “I’m glad I responded to the call. Yes, I believe He called and chose me with all of my imperfects to make perfect (His will.)”

For nearly 40 years — and counting.

North Carolina author Keisha Boatwright inherits beauty for ashes through two compelling books


And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9 ESV)


BEAUTY FOR ASHES

TALE OF TWO SEASONS — A native of Newark, New Jersey Keisha Boatwright has contributed mightily to the spiritually-empowering, awe-inspiring book entitled, “Unleashed Travails: From Pain to Purpose.”

Though she unfortunately had hit a rough spot in her life, Keisha Boatwright was determined not to give up.

Not with so much living well ahead of her.
Consider, for instance, how Boatwright, a Greensboro, North Carolina-area businesswoman, had gone about assessing the remarkably compelling above double image in this very news story.
“It represents how I was fighting an emotional battle and when I made it through how my confidence growth,” Boatwright told Making Headline News during a weekend interview.

BUY AUTHOR BOATWRIGHT’S BOOKS HERE: https://www.soulistickesh.com/

A book that is comprised of 70 pages in length, “Unleashed Travails: From Pain to Purpose” is a collaborative written work that was assembled by four authors.

For Boatwright, amongst the notable factors on which she can appropriately hang her hat is the fact that it was due in large part to her turbulent season in the wilderness that God had, in turn, bestowed upon her a wealth of confidence as a result.

So much, in fact that this beloved Navy veteran deemed it essential to find her niche in the ever-so-competitive world of authorship.

A native of Newark, New Jersey Boatwright has contributed mightily to the spiritually-empowering, awe-inspiring book entitled, “Unleashed Travails: From Pain to Purpose.”

A book that is comprised of 70 pages in length, “Unleashed Travails: From Pain to Purpose” is a collaborative written work that was assembled by four authors.

For Boatwright, her valiant contributions to her latest endeavor comes amid a rash of hardships and unfavorable circumstances, past memories that, because of her having steadfastly exemplified some bend-but-don’t-break faith, has ultimately thrust her to a much-anticipated harvest season.

“(God gave me the vision to write this book) when I became an empty nester,” Boatwright said. “It was part of my healing process.”

A 14-year Navy veteran, Boatwright is a certified Yoga instructor (RY-200hr) and is a member of the Bella Hearts nonprofit organization.

A book that made its official debut on the market on September 10, 2018, “Unleashed Travails: From Pain to Purpose” represents a compilation of some of the trials and tribulations, many of which have occurred within the individual lives of four women, as mentioned in a detailed introduction at Amazon.com.


“It is their hope that somewhere in these pages, you will find the courage and inspiration to move beyond your pain to your purpose, knowing that after experiencing unplanned and life-changing circumstances — your ‘Unleashed Travails’ has made you a survivor,” said an Amazon spokesperson for this book.


Without question, Boatwright can greatly attest to the notion of what it means to transcend from a season in the dreaded wilderness to a season in which God has ceremoniously made her a survivor.

“(This book is a reminder of how I must) remain true to myself,” said Boatwright, explaining how ‘Unleashed Travails: From Pain to Purpose’ is synonymous to the purpose for which God has created her.


SEASON OF THE REBIRTH 

For Boatwright, her valiant contributions to her latest endeavor comes amid a rash of hardships and unfavorable circumstances, a past memory that, because of her having steadfastly exemplified some bend-but-don’t-break faith, has ultimately thrust her to a much-anticipated harvest season.

Besides “Unleashed Travails: From Pain to Purpose,” Boatwright also played a major role in “The Purposed Woman 365 Day Devotional,” a collaborative Amazon bestseller that made its official release earlier this year.

Not to be outdone, she announced the forthcoming release of her solo-authored project entitled, “Unleashed Travails,” which is scheduled to debut by the end of the year, or “in my time for my birthday (December 5),” she said.

Not to be outdone, she announced the forthcoming release of her solo-authored project entitled, “Picking Up The Broken Pieces,” which is scheduled to debut by the end of the year, or “in my time for my birthday (December 5),” she said.

A 14-year Navy veteran, Boatwright is a certified Yoga instructor (RY-200hr) and is a member of the Bella Hearts nonprofit organization.

On September 14, she will be afforded the golden opportunity to promote her books when she participates in the Rockin With The Bellas 5K Run & Walk.

Later that day, she will make an appearance at a Greensboro-area yoga event entitled, “Pain to Purpose.”

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

Her empowerment and consulting firm, in fact, provides holistic mental health treatment, as well as prevention and education services to women, men, families, children and adolescents, and under-served populations affected by health disparities, trauma, self-identity issues and poverty.

Widely regarded as a compassionate, professional and culturally competent therapist, who provides what it known as a “strengths based” perspective to therapy, Badger strongly believes that in working together through a trusting collaborative relationship, one can gain support to alleviate emotional pain and begin the journey of self-acceptance.

To her credit, her extensive experience includes — but isn’t limited to — helping clients with traumatic experiences, divorce, relationship problems, sleep problems, grief, work-related stress, family stress, and immigration concerns, among others.

A native of Jamaica (West Indies), Badger Simona Badger attended Ferncourt High School in her native establishment before reuniting with her parents in the United States at 15 years of age.

Consequently, she attended Harry S. Truman High in the Bronx, New York, where and graduated in 1998.


MAKING IMMEASURABLE STRIDES

For what it’s worth, Badger 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.

Badger advanced her education at Herbert H. Lehman College, where she earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Sociology (she minored in Black Studies) in 2003.

Then in 2008, she earned a Master of Social Work Degree from Fordham University. During her graduate studies, she majored in Clinical social Work with a certification in Law and Social Work Practice.

Interestingly, in 2013, Badger completed a post-graduate program at New Jersey Institute for Psychoanalysis-Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Certificate Program in nearby Teaneck.

“I love empowering people to reach their full potential,” Badger said. “We are all resilient, but that’s easily forgotten when we are going through hard times.”

The WORD Network to air Prophetess Maria Vaughn’s 4th Annual Eagle Excellence Awards in September 2019


MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES PROPHETESS MARIA VAUGHN AND THE WORD NETWORK 


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)


Dr. Maria Vaughn wasn’t just born and raised in the church.

Because of who she is and because of where God is taking her, her reputation is such that she routinely goes to great lengths to advance the kingdom.

In remarkably impressive fashion for the most part.

“My mother is an evangelist and my father is a deacon,” Dr. Vaughn told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “I have great support from my family, which I draw strength from.”

THE PROVERBS 31 FACTOR — Widely known throughout the Body of Christ as Prophetess Maria Vaughn, this Crisfield, Maryland native is not only the proud Founder and CEO of Exodus Deliverance Outreach Ministries, Inc., her Lakewood, New Jersey-based non-profit organization — which has sponsored an assortment of community-related events and awarded scholarships to prospective college students — but she has gained widespread respect amongst her peers for having organized the Eagle Excellence Awards Ceremony.

Such unyielding family support, coupled with the massive divine calling on her life, have benefited Dr. Vaughn mightily, considering her ministry is steadily attracting more of global presence.

MORE ON THE EAGLE EXCELLENCE AWARDS: https://www.eagleawards.org

NATIONAL IMPACT — Next year’s Eagle Excellence Awards Ceremony, which will be nationally televised by The WORD Network, will be hosted by Bishop Greg Davis and will take place on September 7, 2019 at 5 p.m. EST from Lakewood, New Jersey.

An event that is entering its fourth year of existence, the Eagle Excellence Awards is widely regarded as a mandate, of sorts, whereby organizers deem it essential to honor, celebrate, and encourage Pastors, reminding them, among other things, that their immeasurable kingdom-based work is not being executed in vain.

“Although their ultimate reward will come from God, we deem it necessary to give thanks to them for the years of selfless service that they give to the Kingdom of God,” said a spokesperson for the Eagle Excellence Awards in a synopsis at https://www.eagleawards.org/.


MORE ON THE WORD NETWORK: http://www.thewordnetwork.org/

Roughly a month removed from the latest awards ceremony, Dr. Vaughn’s Fourth Annual Eagle Excellence Awards Show figures to be just as adventurous, thus attracting more of a universal presence.

That’s because next year’s event, which will be nationally televised by The WORD Network, will be hosted by Bishop Greg Davis, and will take place on September 7, 2019 at 5 p.m. EST from Lakewood, New Jersey.

Available in over 200 countries while reaching millions of viewers in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and appearing in nearly 93 million homes in the United States, The WORD Network is widely regarded as largest African-American religious network in the world. 

A venue for the next year’s Eagle Excellence Awards has yet to be determined.

WORTHY OF DOUBLE HONOR — Interestingly, Eagle Excellence Awards organizers have had the luxury of paying homage to more than 150 Pastors from around the country, in part because a number of them haven’t gotten the respect and exposure they rightfully deserve, Dr. Vaughn emphasized.

If the previous three years are any indication, it’s safe to assume that next year’s event figures to attract a slew of prominent personalities throughout the Body of Christ.

“We have been able to host many ministry leaders in the communities to bless the Body of Christ,” Dr. Vaughn said.

Amongst those leaders are Bishop Hezekiah Walker, Pastor Tye Tribbett, Evangelist Vicki Winans, Evangelist Karen Clark Sheard, Evangelist Dorinda Clark Cole, Bishop Jason Nelson, Charles Butler & Trinity, the Mann’s Tour, the Bloody Win Tour, Bishop Marvin Sapp, Le’Andria Johnson, and Tasha Page Lockhart, just to name a few.

“Many leaders have been overlooked for their sacrifices and endeavors. During our Eagle Excellence Awards ceremony, we have let the leaders know that their work is not being done in vain. Our desire is to be a blessing by giving back to our youth and communities.” — Prophetess Maria Vaughn 


MUCH SPIRITUAL HOOPLA — If the previous three years are any indication, it’s safe to assume that the 2019 Eagle Excellence Awards figure to attract a slew of prominent personalities throughout the Body of Christ.

Also, next year’s Eagle Excellence Awards will be comprised of what Dr. Vaughn said are “specific changes,” most notably a newly-established production team, a variety of commercials and promos months leading to the event, as well as new marketing strategies that will enable organizers to enhance the event’s vision.

In addition, Dr. Vaughn and her staff are devising more effective and strategic ways to implement networking and continuing long-term relationships, all the while adding more volunteers and community involvement, particularly as it relates to creating more activities to brand the forthcoming Eagle Excellence Awards, she said.

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES CHARLOTTE ROBINSON

A native of Camden, New Jersey, Robinson recently raised the curtain on Diva2DivaTalks, her much-anticipated informational blog that is centered largely on empowering women, particularly those ranging in ages 40 and over.

In essence, Diva2DivaTalks was strategically designed to greatly enable the total woman to live out her unique experiences, thus bask in the majesty of God’s glory and splendor once even in the midst of her seasoned years.

THE PROVERBS 31 FACTOR — As it relates to this familiar Biblical passage, Robinson can be appropriately described as one who goes about walking in her purpose rather purposely.

“Using my voice, expertise and broad unbiased perspective, I will give women a platform to feel free to discuss, engage, vent a little, and cry a little. Whatever it takes, (I will help) put you in a good head space and at ease in whatever time of your life.” — Charlotte Robinson 


Having evolved mightily as a Newark, Delaware-based businesswoman in recent years, Robinson’s featured business venture is A Design by Diva, a credible and full fledge fashion design company, whereby she customarily assembles rhinestone and screen print designed tees (T-shirts) as well as affordable clothing for plus size women.

GOD’S LEADING LADIES — To her credit, Robinson has gone to great lengths to establish an enterprise that figures to empower and enhance the lives of whom she describes as seasoned women.

Earlier this month, a host of Robinson’s friends, close acquaintances, and local businesswomen were on hand celebrate the official launch of her blog, which she said caters to women nationwide.

“I cater to women over 40, but I believe it’s a benefit to younger women who will know what to expect during those seasoned years to come,” Robinson said.

Oh, but wait. There are also opportunities for men to acquire some wholeness knowledge, thus adopt a newfound perspective on life, courtesy Robinson’s blog.

SOLID SUPPORTING CAST — Having evolved mightily as a Newark, Delaware-based businesswoman in recent years, Robinson’s featured business venture is A Design by Diva, a credible and full fledge fashion design company, whereby she customarily assembles rhinestone and screen print designed tees (T-shirts) as well as affordable clothing for plus size women.

“In addition, men can gain some in site as to what their spouse or significant other may be experiencing and help with understanding,” Robinson said. “Where I haven’t physically ventured out yet to get my ideas and information to others, I have engaged in conversation with women from all (over), up and down the East coast and some out west as well. I look forward to seeing when and where I may be a help to others.”

Arguably her greatest motivation for deeming it necessary to establish Diva2DivaTalks was women whom, like her, have had to press and navigate their way past a slew of life’s challenges and obstacles.

VISION UNFOLDED — Robinson’s Diva2DivaTalks is in full operations and, much to the delight of array of women — and men, of course — countless lives are being empowered and impacted.

“I was inspired by many women,” Robinson said. “I would sit back and listen to stories and think to myself, ‘I’m sure there are other women some places going through the same things, but no one is talking about it.’ So why not help anyone I can? This idea has been on my heart for the last two years, and I wasn’t sure how to proceed or how it would be accepted. Situations just kept arising, and I would say, ‘Okay, God I hear You.’ And this year, I took that leap.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Chesapeake, Virginia author Charmin Y. Anderson writes awe-inspiring book, quickly emerges on Amazon Best Seller list

We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves. (Romans 15:1)

 

For what’s it worth, Charmin Y. Anderson is widely regarded as a person who goes to great lengths to reach back and diligently aid others to reconnect with their God-given worth, all while maximizing their full potential.

VISION UNFOLDING — Once a domestic abuse victim who can fully attest what it’s like to defy arguably the toughest of odds, author Charmin Y. Anderson, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, spoke in detail about how God had strategically given her the vision to make her much-anticipated authorship debut, one that was culminated with the inspiring book entitled, Behind My Smile: Every Woman’s Worst Nightmare.

Credit her emotional, life-enhancing testimony as the single, most underlying reason why.

Once a domestic abuse victim who can fully attest what it’s like to defy arguably the toughest of odds, Anderson, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, spoke in great detail about how God had strategically given her the vision to make her much-anticipated authorship debut, one that was culminated with the  inspiring book entitled, Behind My Smile: Every Woman’s Worst Nightmare.

Powered by Cannon Publishing, Anderson’s Behind My Smile: Every Woman’s Worst Nightmare depicts this writer’s assortment of tear-jerking experiences, most notably those whereby the victims’ gruesome and dreaded circumstances could potentially lead to them making the kind of choices that could ultimately cause their paths in life to change substantially, as mentioned in a detailed description of Anderson’s book at Amazon.com.

“Regardless, it takes unwavering courage to be able to admit that the choices you chose that impacted the lives of the people you love the most were wrong,” said a spokesperson for Anderson’s book that was officially released in September 2017.

All things considered, what’s so astounding about Anderson’s Behind My Smile: Every Woman’s Worst Nightmare is that her 68-page written document is dominated by an array of transparency, a trend she’s persuaded will enrich and inspire others mightily, especially those who share similar encounters as this New Jersey-born writer and businesswoman.

“Truth is, hiding behind my choices caused more pain than being honest,” Anderson explained. “I allowed fear to marinate and take root in places in my life because keeping secrets was a program that was embedded in me years ago. However, every program can be rewritten and updated.”

KEEPIN’ IT REAL — All things considered, what’s so astounding about Anderson’s Behind My Smile: Every Woman’s Worst Nightmare is that her 68-page written document is dominated by an array of transparency, a trend she’s persuaded will aid and inspire others mightily, especially those who share similar encounters as this New Jersey-born writer.

Regardless, Anderson, even to this very day, can boldly profess that she has reaped the favorable results she so desperately sought, thanks in large part to her quest to conquer and outlast the spirit of fear.

“Program Fear has been terminated and replaced with the program called Freedom,” Anderson customarily says with such humility and humbleness.

More than anything, Anderson emphasized, she’s destined to help impact lives through her new book — you know, to bear the infirmities of the weak, as God’s commands us through His life-enhancing word.

“I want to let every woman who has been through domestic violence or any form of abuse to know that they are not alone,” said Anderson, who currently resides in Chesapeake, Virginia. “In my book, I opened up and became vulnerable to the world by standing up against fear.”

As for the feedback she’s garnered since the release of her new project, it’s safe to assume that Anderson surely did not disappoint, considering she was thrust upon the Amazon Best Seller list within a span of roughly 15 minutes after the release of her book.

“Everyone who has given me feedback loved it,” Anderson said. “(And) I have been booked multiple times for speaking engagements.”

Interestingly, Anderson announced that her second book is presently in the works. The title: When Dead Flowers Still Bloom.

YOU GO GIRL!!! As for the feedback she’s garnered since the release of her new project, well, it’s safe to assume that Anderson surely did not disappoint, considering she was thrust upon the Amazon Best Seller list within a span of roughly 15 minutes after the release of her book.

Also, her latest speaking engagement pertaining to her book is scheduled for this weekend in Charlotte at the Unmasking The Truth About Domestic Violence event.

“My assignment is to help others help others by sharing my story,” Anderson said. “Telling my story is a struggle and I still cry sometimes. But if I can inspire and empower someone to help someone else, then a community of movement takes place. What would happen if we could activate and build a movement of movement?”

Not to mention bear the infirmities of the weak, as God’s commands us through His life-enhancing word?

One attribute undoubtedly rings true as it pertains to Shawna Johnson.

To her distinctly unique credit, Johnson’s entrepreneurship reputation is such that she customarily answers this notable question virtually daily.

A credible and resourceful businesswoman, Johnson is an accomplished Business Coach, Corporate Trainer, and Motivational Speaker, a progressively thriving venture that has allowed her to make her presence felt across the country, even in establishments around the globe.

How else to explain why this longtime Corporate America professional’s remarkable career has allowed her to put her immense entrepreneurship talents on display in more than 300 seminars throughout the United States and abroad?

Most importantly and for what it’s worth, Johnson doesn’t shy away from the notion that she undoubtedly is walking in the divine purpose for which God has created her.

Having acquired a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from California State University, Johnson also holds a Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work from Howard, where graduated Suma Cum Laude. Also, Johnson is founder of a non-profit organization called Positive Young Teens (www.positiveyoungteens.org), whereby she assist disadvantaged youths in middle and high school, stressing, among other things, the importance of civic responsibility, leadership entrepreneurship, and academic excellence.

As far her biggest inspiration for electing to delve off into the competitive world of entrepreneurship, Johnson recalls like yesterday when one of her high school counselors suggested that she wasn’t a suitable fit to pursue higher education.

AS GOOD AS ADVERTISED — Fortunately for Johnson, she has been nothing short of impressive during an entrepreneurship tenure that spans more than 12 years — and counting.

Interesting enough, that proved to be just the motivation she needed to help steer her toward her destiny.

Look at her today, a former Rutgers University Corporate Trainer who is the mastermind behind having established three successful businesses, all while aiding thousands of professionals launch lucrative careers.

“When I was in high school my counselor told me I wasn’t college material,” Johnson recalled. “She suggested I get a job instead. That one incident has been a driving force in my life…not to prove her wrong, but to prove to myself that I could achieve anything I put my mind to.”

IMPRESSIVE RESUME — Having acquired a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from California State University, Johnson also holds a Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work from Howard, where graduated Suma Cum Laude.

“My biggest influence is my mother,” Johnson said. “She raised eight children by herself. She taught me the importance of hard work, commitment and perseverance.”

DEFYING THE ODDS — As far her biggest inspiration for electing to delve off into the competitive world of entrepreneurship, Johnson recalls like yesterday when one of high school counselors suggested that she wasn’t a suitable fit to pursue higher education.

All of which essentially sums up why Johnson has steadfastly defied life’s biggest of obstacles while ensuring that her dreams become a reality.

“My personal mission is to help people understand their worth…to believe in themselves and know they have something of value to share with the world,” Johnson, a lifetime member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., said.

Washington, D. C.-area author Melikia Gaino overcomes array of past criticism, writes ninth book in two years

WRITING ON A NATIONAL STAGE — An accomplished, credible author who began writing professionally a little less than a decade ago, Melikia Gaino has evolved masterfully as a fixture for True Glory Publications as one of its best and brightest writers.

You best believe that Melikia Gaino remembers those negative comments.

She remembers them as if they were told to her yesterday.

“In high school, I was told I wasn’t a good writer,” Gaino told Making Headline News Thursday afternoon during an interview from Washington, D. C. “I spoke and wrote with too much Ebonics.”

At least, that is how people had perceived Gaino’s verbal and written communications skills back then.

Today, unlike never before, Gaino has gone to great lengths to silence her critics by way of her notable tenure in the ever-so-competitive world of authorship.

An accomplished, credible author who began writing professionally a little less than a decade ago, Gaino has evolved masterfully as a fixture for True Glory Publications as one of its best and brightest writers.

So much for all the negative backlash way back when.

“When I went to college, I used the negative comments and begin to write,” Gaino explained. “After the (release of my) first book, I received (positive) feedback from my friends, who encouraged me to keep writing.”

She did just that.

And, on May 13, this talented, progressive author who is a proud native of the nation’s capital will reach yet another milestone in her stellar professional writing career when she witnesses the official release of her latest book, “Born Killer 2.”

For Gaino, her forthcoming written document will be her ninth book in a span of two years and her first since the release of her project, “Church Girls,” which hit the market in February.

MAKING MAJOR PROGRESS — For Gaino, her forthcoming written document will be her ninth book in a span of two years and her first since the release of her project, “Church Girls,” which hit the market in February.

Each of Gaino’s books can be purchased at Amazon.com.

BUY MELIKIA GAINO’S BOOKS HERE: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_rsis_1_3?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=melikia%20gaino&sprefix=Mel%2Caps%2C608.

Last year, Gaino composed a career-best four books, eclipsing her mark from 2015 year when she wrote three books.

Her first book, “Falling For a Drug Dealer,” was released in May 2015.

As Gaino — a self-proclaimed soft-spoken, humble and modest individual acknowledged — she’s grateful of the continuous strides she’s made in such a brief time in a popular and competitive industry.

“I read so many books growing up, from Zane all the way to Kwan,” Gaino said. “I was so in tuned to urban fiction books. I felt as I could write one myself. I took the steps in publishing my books for my family and friends, who have been my first and biggest supporters.”

Interesting enough, Gaino’s intrigue for becoming an author began to heighten considerably, particularly during her sophomore year at Johnson C. Smith University in 2007.

That is when she began writing consistently, a trend that, to her credit, still exists to this very day.

“I began writing one day during work study duty,” Gaino explained. “I didn’t have any homework and was bored. A few of my friends were keeping me company as I was at work and I decided to write a book for us. One chapter led to another and so on. When the book was completed two months later, they wanted to know what happened next, leading me to write a lot of books for them.”

So much for all that criticism she fielded way back when.

Fortunately for Gaino, though, such negative backlash only fueled her desire to write in such a way that even her detractors would someday come to embrace her craft as an accomplished author.

“I look at feedback as you can’t please everyone, but I have been getting some great feedback as well as gained a lot of fans from my books,” Gaino said. “I’m the type of person who always want to help someone else. I feel God made me a writer who could write about (about a variety of) topics.”

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN — Interesting enough, Gaino’s intrigue for becoming an author began to heighten considerably, particularly during her sophomore year at Johnson C. Smith University in 2007. That is when she began writing consistently, a trend that, to her credit, still exists to this very day.

As for her past and present critics, well, they are who they are and they will be who they will be.

And Gaino, who’s managed to appropriately silence them, is very much okay with that.

“I also think God purposed me (for writing) to show me that He has the last say so,” Gaino said. “Growing up and hearing you never will be a good writer, or will never succeed if you don’t change the way you write or speak, God showed me that I have a talent and that Ebonics can take you places and help you relate to the readers.”

For what it’s worth, you best believe that Gaino remembers those negative comments.

She remembers them as if they were told to her yesterday.

As it stands, she’s currently nine books into her profession.
