Flint, Michigan’s Precious Brown walking fervently in her purpose with her ninth published book

During what obviously was an informative and empowering assembly, Precious S. Brown thought it necessary to take it a step further.

“I was given the idea after completing a Tele-Summit titled, ‘IRise Women’s Empowerment Summit,'” Brown told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “On the Summit, we had 17 amazing speakers that helped the audience with life obstacles in the areas of abuse, health, healing, happiness, the inner critic, and so much more.”

EMPOWERMENT EXTRAORDINAIRE — To her credit, Flint, Michigan businesswoman Precious S. Brown would ultimately spearhead what has turned out to be an awe-inspiring collaborative project, one that came wrapped up in a life-enhancing book entitled, “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises,” a book that is forwarded by this accomplished Flint, Michigan-based author and empowerment extraordinaire, who is also the founder and CEO of Kilgore Publishing.

An empowering, kingdom-advancing written document that is comprised of a gallery of accomplished writers, “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises” is scheduled to be officially released in December.

CREATING AN EARLY BUZZ — Brown and Co. have already become the beneficiaries of some favorable feedback — this for a book that is still weeks away from its much-anticipated release.

A native Mount Morris, Michigan, Brown, 45, has surely paid her dues in this ever-so-competitive professional writing industry, considering she is responsible for having authored what is now nine books, five of which she has written single handily.

As for her latest book, she wasted little time gathering the troops and began collaborating with them to collectively assemble “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises.”

“I begin writing immediately after the summit,” Brown explained. “I reached out to the co-authors for the extended versions of their stories to compile them for the book.”


PRECIOUS S. BROWN’S NEW BOOK TO BE RELEASED ON 12.17.18

PUTTING IN SOME WORK — A native Mount Morris, Michigan, Brown, 45, has surely paid her dues in this ever-so-competitive professional writing industry, considering she is responsible for having authored what is now nine books, five of which she has written single handily.

Interestingly and much to her delight, Brown’s latest work of art is scheduled to be complete and released on her birthday, which is December 17.

Talk about counting her array of blessings for such a remarkable time as now.

“I am super excited, because not only is it my birthday, but it is the 10th year anniversary of me living in freedom of trauma and strife – living an empowered life,” said Brown, whose authorship greatness was spearheaded through a God-orchestrated vision.

GO PRECIOUS…IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY Interestingly and much to her delight, Brown’s latest work of art is scheduled to be complete and released on her birthday, which is December 17.

“God gave me the vision to write a book when I was a little girl, but I doubted it was possible,” Brown told MHN during an October 2017 interview.

Because of who she is and because of where God is taking her, she has gone to great lengths to diligently carry out and fulfill such a lofty vision ever since.

Yep. To God be the glory for the things He has done.


“The message is that you can rise above any obstacle manifested in your life. You must believe you can, do the work to get to the next level, and greater will manifest. The authors went to great lengths to encourage, inspire, and motivate the readers to take their power back and grab life by the horns through faith.” — Precious S. Brown 


As for her latest book, Brown wasted little time gathering the troops and began collaborating with them to collectively assemble “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises.”

And, as a result, Brown and Co. have already become the beneficiaries of some favorable feedback — this for a book that is still weeks away from its much-anticipated release.

“So far, as we continue to drop seeds of the release people are anticipating another great read,” Brown said. “My audience is used to the quality material I deliver, and they are expecting nothing less than to be taken on a journey ending in empowerment.”

More than anything, though, Brown doesn’t shy away from the notion that her forthcoming book is just another memory in the divine purpose for which God has created her.

As well as for the other contributors to this book.

DESTINY STEPS — More than anything, Brown doesn’t shy away from the notion that her forthcoming book is just another memory in the divine purpose for which God has created her.

“This book adds great value to the purpose in which I was created,” Brown said. “I know my life has been designed to empower others who feel they are undeserving or unworthy. My assignment is to show the less fortunate that no matter the hand they were dealt, they too still have purpose.

“You see, had I allowed the abuses (physical, mental, emotional, drug and alcohol) to define who I am and stop me from seeing that God could use me too, the lives that are divinely connected to me would never be changed,” Brown continued. “That is the reason I continue to move forward in purpose on purpose.”

With God, her Helper, leading the way.

Yep. To God be the glory for the things He has done.

Flint, Michigan businesswoman Shearese Stapleton’s Mothers Of Joy, LLC was birthed amid area’s water crisis of 2014

For what it’s worth, it’s safe to assume that one of Shearese Stapleton’s notable gifts is fortifying the gift of giving.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — A longtime educator, Flint, Michigan-area businesswoman Shearese Stapleton deemed it especially essential to start what is known as The Mothers of Joy University, LLC, a strategic, empowering organization that is geared largely toward providing effective, longstanding services that would greatly inspire families to build and sustain a strong community.

Consider, for instance, how Stapleton, 44, a native of Flint, Michigan, had gone to great lengths to aid her fellow residents the best way she knew how during the Flint water crisis that transpired in the area a little more than three years ago.

“When the city I grew up in became the product of led-infected water, when children could not drink or bath with it, (I was) able to develop tools and provide resources during this time when hope was nowhere in sight to fix a problem that has not been fixed,” Stapleton told Making Headline News this week.

To her credit, not only did Stapleton become a fixture during the Flint water crisis, during which the drinking water source for that city was changed to the Flint River and, as a result, more than 100,000 residents were potentially exposed to high levels of lead in the drinking water.

MOM KNOWS BEST — Accompanied by the theme, “”Where Empowing The family Is A Way Of Life,” Stapleton’s Mothers of Joy University organization is in its infancy stages, yet it is making a solid case that it is a resource from which Flint and the surrounding can benefit mightily, especially in the wake of a water crisis that is expected to be completely resolved no sooner than 2020.

“My children and, most of all, myself, have always wanted to help and be associates to children and other families, said Stapleton, explaining the primary purpose for her community-based organization. (My primary focus is) to give a different perspective on things that don’t seem changeable.”

To her credit, Stapleton certainly possesses the accolades and credentials to oversee an organization that figures to impact countless families in Flint and the surrounding areas.

FAMILY FOCUS — “My children and, most of all, myself, have always wanted to help and be associates to children and other families, said Stapleton, explaining the primary purpose for her community-based organization. (My primary focus is) to give a different perspective on things that don’t seem changeable.”

For starters, she is a proud alumna Flint Northwestern High School — she graduated in 1991 — and, upon earning her diploma, she earned an Associate’s Degree in Child Development from nearby Mott Community College.

Presently, Stapleton is pursuing a Developmental Psychology Degree from the University of Michigan at Flint with a minor in Social Work (with an emphasis in Family Studies).

When asked why it is imperative to esteem and inspire others daily, Stapleton appropriately said, “Because that one thing you say or do could change someone’s life.”

All of which practically sums up why one of her notable gifts is fortifying the gift of giving.

Notable Michigan author Precious S. Brown making her presence felt with seven books, more projects forthcoming

HARVEST SEASON UNFOLDING — A longtime Flint, Michigan-based businesswoman and the Founder and CEO of Kilgore Publishing, it’s safe to assume that Precious S. Brown, 44, has surely paid her dues in this ever-so-competitive professional writing industry, considering she is responsible for having authored seven books, five of which she wrote single handily.

To her distinctly unique credit, Precious S. Brown undoubtedly has found her niche in writing.

Need more proof?

“Writing can be a healing tool if used correctly,” Brown told Making Headline News this week. “I believe everyone has a story to tell, but only a few of us will be bold enough to do it, to change lives, to change the world.”

All things considered and because of the passion through writing for which she is widely known, Brown — for those who have followed her rise as an accomplished writer — has gone to great lengths to change the world, if you will.

A longtime Flint, Michigan-based businesswoman as the Founder and CEO of Kilgore Publishing, it’s safe to assume that Brown, 44, has surely paid her dues in this ever-so-competitive professional writing industry, considering she is responsible for having authored seven books, five of which she has written single handily.

MAKING THE VISION PLAIN — “My goal is to release a life-changing book once a year,” Brown said.

For the record, Brown’s rise to authorship greatness was spearheaded through a God-orchestrated vision.

“God gave me the vision to write a book when I was a little girl, but I doubted it was possible,” Brown recalled.

As it turned out, she had ultimately proven herself wrong which, much to her delight, wasn’t a bad thing.

Need more proof?

“That vision stuck with me throughout my life, but I always pushed it to the back of my mind,” Brown explained of having discovered her passion for writing. “After my divorce, (God) brought it to my remembrance and began to lay out exactly what I needed to share and provided the relationships to make it happen.”

It was in large part because of her act of obedience to her Creator, coupled with those who share a similar passion that have greatly enabled Brown to emerge as one Michigan’s finest authors.

It all began with Brown’s workbook series entitled, The Process Of Change, which is comprised of three volumes: Vol. 1: A Look At Me; Vol. 2 – Love Yourself; and Vol. 3 – Moving Forward.

Each of those written documents are used in Brown’s frequent workshops, she said and, according to the longtime writer, her “newest creation” entitled, Souls Untied, is scheduled to be released sometime in December.

In addition, Brown has engaged in a collaboration series known as: Transition 1: Create The Life You Desire and Transition 2: Ashes Emanating Beauty. As if that isn’t enough to generate the kind of exposure that has attracted a national presence, Brown has contributed to two other books, first Releasing The Fear: Walking In Faith and Shift Happens.

Both projects have been dubbed Amazon Bestsellers, she said.

All things considered, Brown’s journey as a notable author began in 2009, during which she composed her first book.

“It started as a journal to get my emotions under control,” Brown explained. “I would put it on the shelf and took it off from 2009-2012.”

Then a strange, but favorable sequence of events had unfolded the following year.

Need more proof?

ROUND OF APPLA– USE — For the record, Brown’s rise to authorship greatness was spearheaded through a God-orchestrated vision. “God gave me the vision to write a book when I was a little girl, but I doubted it was possible,” Brown recalled. As it turned out, she had ultimately proven herself wrong which, much to her delight, wasn’t a bad thing.

“I finally released it after I was challenged in September 2013,” Brown said. After that, the words kept flowing, and then I released Volumes 2 and 3 in 2014, the first Transition in 2016 and the second in 2017.”

All of which have practically fueled Brown’s creative drive to adopt what has become a personal, yet indefinite ambition, as far as she is concerned.

“My goal is to release a life-changing book once a year,” Brown said.

As always, whenever she finds herself sharing of her remarkably amazing story, chances are she will reflect back on how it all started with a vision, one that has changed the overall landscape of her life.

All things considered, Brown’s journey as a notable author began in 2009, during which she composed her first book.

“My sole reason for writing the books is two-fold,” Brown said. “I knew the vision was given to me by God, and the one thing I didn’t want to do was disappoint Him. In not disappointing Him, my purpose was birthed…to help women define themselves, relationships, and success on their own terms…to shift their mindset to align with their definition and to create the life they desire.”

Here’s more proof.

“By being very transparent in my stories and giving a lot of my personal story, trials, and triumphs, I believe the divine message is you can overcome anything is if you put your mind to it,” Brown said. “Make the decision on what you want life to be, knowing that you deserve the best and nothing can stop you.”

BASKING IN GOD’S GLORY — All things considered and because of the passion through writing for which she is widely known, Brown — for those who have followed her rise as an accomplished writer — has gone to great lengths to change the world, if you will.

As expected, the rave reviews, to Brown’s credit, are steadily pouring in which, by all accounts, are only adding to her immeasurable vision, one of which she has grabbed a firm hold.

Need more proof?

“I get all kinds of feedback from…I can’t believe you share so much,’ to ‘Thank you for sharing your story…it blessed me,’” Brown said. “Most times, I get positive feedback. Some people don’t believe the storyline, because by the grace of God, I don’t look like what I been through.”

And for the record, the proof in the pudding, mind you.

That’s because to her distinctly unique credit, Precious S. Brown undoubtedly has found her niche in writing.

A PRECIOUS S. BROWN RELATED STORY:

Flint, Michigan businesswoman Precious S. Brown’s Kilgore Publishing Company steadily having a national impact

FOR SUCH A PRECIOUS TIME AS NOW — Precious S. Brown’s Kilgore Publishing was formally organized in March 2017. To her credit, this Flint, Michigan-based venture has made some pretty favorable strides since its inception.

During a weekend interview with Making Headline News, Precious S. Brown was asked to explain her business in detail.

“Initially, I started the company as a personal development firm named Power-N-You, and it was established in July 2014,” Brown recalled.

To her credit, it wasn’t long after her business-related discovery that God had allowed her to — for a lack of better words — discover the power within herself.

That’s because Brown’s Kilgore Publishing was formally organized, a Flint, Michigan-based venture that has made some pretty favorable strides since its inception in March 2017.

A compellingly resourceful company that was originally jumpstarted when the Kilgore Publishing Founder and CEO began writing and publishing her books, mostly The Process of Change, coupled with workbooks for workshops to help women overcome what she described as traumatic life events, Brown’s began to thrive mightily in her element when she had ultimately realized how writing and empowering others not only provided a way for the women to overcome the bondage of failure but, most of all, to enhance their self -worth, let alone their outlook on life, a trend that would eventually give way to their healing process.

HAVING AN IMMEDIATE IMPACT — It wasn’t until March 2016 that Brown has elected to shift her business-oriented focus solely on writing and publishing books for herself and others. The rest, as they say, was history.

“As I continued on the healing journey with women, I continued to write,” Brown explained.

Consequently, it wasn’t until March 2016 that Brown had elected to shift her business-oriented focus solely on writing and publishing books for herself and others.

The rest, as they say, was history.

Look at this progressive and accomplished businesswoman today, steadfastly walking in her divine purpose with God, her Helper, leading the way.

“I wanted to create a platform where women across the globe could use and launch their dreams,” Brown, a native of Mount Morris, Michigan who have authored seven books, five of which were written exclusively by her.

For starters, Brown’s greatness through entrepreneurship essentially started when she formed a gallery that was comprised of 16 women, all of whom composed a collaboration book entitled, Transition: Create The Life You Desire.

To their distinctly unique credit, it wasn’t long thereafter that this remarkable written document had emerged as the first Amazon Best Seller under Kilgore Publishing umbrella.

And, as Brown gratefully tells it, “The company continues to grow with authors being birthed every day.”

AN INFLUENTIAL IMPACT — A compellingly resourceful company that was originally jumpstarted when the Kilgore Publishing Founder and CEO began writing and publishing her books, mostly The Process of Change, coupled with workbooks for workshops to help women overcome what she described as traumatic life events, Brown’s began to thrive mightily in her element when she had ultimately realized how writing and empowering others not only provided a way for the women to overcome the bondage of failure but, most of all, to enhance their self -worth, let alone their outlook on life, a trend that would eventually give way to their healing process.

A proud 1991 honors graduate of Flint’s Beecher High School, Brown would enroll at the University of Michigan at Flint, but withdrew after learning she had become pregnant.

Just like her steadfast commitment of expanding her business, though, she ultimately resumed her higher educational ambitions and eventually earned an Associate’s Degree in Business from nearby Indiana Wesleyan University.

Credit her competitive drive to defy arguably the grandest of odds for greatly fueling her desire to not just possess a degree but, most importantly, to put it to favorable use by establishing a business venture that is steadily being embraced by those with whom she crosses paths.

AIN’T NO STOPPING HER NOW — A proud 1991 honors graduate of Flint’s Beecher High School, Brown would enroll at the University of Michigan, but withdrew after learning she had become pregnant. Just like her steadfast commitment of expanding her business, she ultimately resumed her higher educational ambitions and eventually earned an Associate’s Degree in Business from nearby Indiana Wesleyan University.

“I am very competitive with myself,” Brown said. “I do not like to feel defeated. That has driven me define success by my own terms, and it has allowed me to begin living my dream life.”

For what’s it worth, while she realized years ago that establishing a business would not be a simple task, Brown doesn’t shy away from the notion that it was well worth the hustle and bustle.

“I knew starting the business was not going to be easy,” Brown said. “I (knew) I would have a lot to learn and I would probably fail a time or two and, that alone, thrust my drive to succeed more. What I knew is if I didn’t try, I would definitely be defeated and I could not allow that to happen.”

A business she acknowledges caters largely to individuals ranging in ages 35 to 54, Brown is now being afforded the golden opportunities to share of her inspiring story on a variety of platforms around the country.

SAVORING THE FRUITS OF HER LABOR — For what’s it worth, while she realized years ago that establishing a business would not be a simple task, Brown doesn’t shy away from the notion that it was well worth the hustle and bustle.

On November 11, she has a speaking engagement scheduled in nearby Ypsilanti, Michigan. Also, she is scheduled to appear at the upcoming She’s Winning Tour and a book signing on October 21 in Atlanta.

Which, as a result, is indicative of just how much God is using her mightily while she continues to bask in the glory of her element.

“When I was at rock bottom, being inspired was like grasping at straws,” Brown explained. “I felt like I was drowning in despair. When I got to the other side, I knew I never wanted another woman to go through that process alone. I knew I could not have gone through all of that for naught. I knew there was purpose in it and I decided to use social media as an avenue to reach the masses.

“I decided a long time ago I would not wait on the phantom 40 acres and a mule,” Brown continued. “I had to go take my own, and I thrive to do it every day. Generational wealth will not be a myth for my family…it is becoming a reality.”

Talk about a detailed description of a business venture that is steadily catching this ever-so-competitive publishing industry by storm.
