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


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


GOD’S MIRACLE CHILD 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

GOD’S LITTLE BALLER 

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

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

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

VICTORY STANCE 

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

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

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

With God, her Helper, steering the way.

Virginia Life Coach Debra Kay fulfilling her divine purpose as a Christian-based author


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


A-O-KAY JOB 

GREATER IS COMING — Having written 10 books to date, Debra Kay’s featured project is entitled, “The Woman On The Inside Is Greater Than The Woman You See,” an informative, spiritually gut-checking written document she officially released in December 2010.

DALLAS — Earlier this week, Debra Kay was going on and on about her immeasurable, compelling gifts as an accomplished author.

Truth be told, she’s earned every right to.

“I am usually writing two or three books at a time, as I am right now,” Kay told Making Headline News. “It does not usually take me any longer than six months to start and finish a book. Things are a little bit hectic being a grandmother, but very rewarding.”

Having written 10 books to date, Kay’s featured project is entitled, “The Woman On The Inside Is Greater Than The Woman You See,” an informative, spiritually gut-checking written document she officially released in December 2010.
An authorship tenure that spans a little more than a decade, Kay’s initial book had come full circle in September 2006, approximately four years after she steadfastly exercised her faith to produce it.
AFTER GOD’S OWN HEART — Since delving off into the ever-so-competitive world of authorship, the general consensus amongst Kay’s book is that she’s undoubtedly an accomplished and brilliant author, one who doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s on fire for God.

“God gave me the vision to write this book in the summer of 2002,” Kay said. “I started this book with the title at the end of 2006. I completed this book in September of 2007.”

As Kay emphasized, it is a book — though it has been on the market for quite some time — she’s aiming to reintroduce to the general public, in large part because “The Woman On The Inside Is Greater Than The Woman You See” is just as prevalent today than it was when it made it ceremonious debut in 2010.

“The single most important reason I chose to write this book is because I have been underneath the feet of people since I was a young person,” Kay explained. “I am a survivor of depression, suicidal thoughts, inferior toward others, and very low self-esteem, which I believe runs in my family with many of the women.”

For what it’s worth, however, Kay’s featured book has brought about renewed sense of enthusiasm for this Martinsville, Virginia-area author, both in the natural and the spirit.


“This book is produced to allow women to know that the greater one is on the inside,” said Kay, who’s widely known also as a Christian-based Life Coach. “You can be beautiful on the outside, but still jacked up on the inside without Christ. When He indwells in you, you are enough.”


Thanks in large part to her life-changing connection with Jesus, Kay not only rediscovered her God-given worth but, more than anything, she’s managed connect with the purpose for which she was created.

“It took many years even after salvation for me to know my worth,” Kay said. “Two bad marriages and I am still single, but at least now I have the wisdom to know what a good man is. I have gained clarity on my worth and it is tied to Jesus, not to a natural man. The book talks about the different stages of my life and how I overcame (them). There is a greater book coming even after this. The half has not been told of my story yet.”

Speaking of “greater” books, Kay is responsible for having produced nine other written works, her latest that is entitled, “How To Walk Out Your Salvation With The Lord Jesus Christ,” which was released in October 2015.

Besides that book, Kay authored the following projects:

  • The Joy Of The Lord Is Our Strength (2008)
  • The Restored Woman (2010)
  • Woman Don’t Die In Your Pain (2011)
  • Can Your Character Handle The Anointing (2008)
  • Confront Your Anger: Send It Back To Calvary (2014)
  • Position Yourself To Be Used By God (2012)
  • Walking In Tampered Faith: It Is A Destroyer (2012) and,
  • Suicide Is Not The Answer (2012).

Since delving off into the ever-so-competitive world of authorship, the general consensus amongst Kay’s book is that she’s undoubtedly an accomplished and brilliant author, one who doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s on fire for God.

An authorship tenure that spans a little more than a decade, Kay’s initial book had come full circle in September 2006, approximately four years after she steadfastly exercised her faith to produce it.

“The feedback I have heard locally is that the books is so good they cannot put it down,” Kay said of ‘The Woman On The Inside Is Greater Than The Woman You See.”

All things considered, coupled with her divine calling, Kay is just giddy that God has set her aside for His use.

“God told me in 1998 that I would be traveling the world telling my story,” said Kay, the CEO of Debra Kay Coaching By Dezign and Inspiration Business DK Inspirations. “I have a lot to say; I just need a platform to say it in. These books are a part of that purpose (in that) God loves us all, but when women realize they are worth more than a sex toy, we can help build up other women and the cycle of depression, loneliness, suicide, and low self-image can be reduced.”

Carolina businessman William E. Sessions, Jr. conquers lengthy cocaine addiction, establishes credible nonprofit organization

 


50 SHADES OF FAVOR 

CLASS IN SESSION — A native of Washington, DC, William Sessions is the mastermind behind “BFF, Inc.” his credible nonprofit organization. “BFF’s goal is to provide you with the wisdom, knowledge, and proven experienced techniques that’s required for you to make it to your next place of destiny, Sessions told Making Headline News this week.

William E. Sessions, Jr. turned 50 years old on Friday.

Surely, he’s basking in the glory of a moment that only God arranged to transpire.

“I’m liking this 50 thing already. Happy Birthday to me,” Sessions wrote in a Facebook post just before midday EST on Friday. “God is so greatttttt!”

A spirited, enthused post that was accompanied by the hashtags, #It’sNotOver and #I’mHereBecauseofCalvary, amongst the reasons that Sessions is especially giddy about reaching the big 5-0 is due in large part to the fact that God continues to steer him to the divine destiny for which he was created.


MORE ON SESSIONS’ BFF, INC: https://www.facebook.com/BestFootForwardInc/

Consider, for instance, how Sessions, a Mount Olive, North Carolina-area businessman, has gone about providing an entirely unique twist to the acronym, BFF.

Although BFF is commonly referred to as one’s “Best Friend Forever,” Session has appropriately made this familiar acronym apart of his business venture.

A native of Washington, DC, Sessions is the mastermind behind “BFF, Inc.” his credible nonprofit organization.

IN HIS ELEMENT — Having been inspired by his uncle, Elder Levoin Troublefield, and his mentor, Clifton Smith, among others, Sessions is overwhelmingly grateful that God has strategically arranged for him to walk in his purpose.

Widely known as Best Foot Forward, Inc., Session’s BFF provide is designed to provide others with strategic, effective information that will great enhance and add value to their life, particularly through his efficient motivational speaking, life coach lessons, workshops and seminars, spiritual enlightenment, as well as through his involvement in community events — many of which are geared toward helping to empower, enrich, and strengthen the lives of others.

Powered by the slogan, “Speaking Words Of Life,” BFF’s goal is to provide clients with the wisdom, knowledge, and proven experienced techniques that’s required for you to make it to your next place of destiny, Sessions told Making Headline News this week.

For Sessions, his rise to evolving and ultimately finding his niche as an accomplished Life Coach and Peer Support Specialist emerged amid a trying season in his life, he acknowledged.


“The competitive drive in life that propels me for this business comes from the determination and hard work that I faced at the end of a nearly 15-year (cocaine) addiction. (I’m) desiring to restructure and put meaning back into my life, but with little-to-no information on who I was, what I was created for, and what to do next, I began a fight that I now fight every day, the struggle to get and stay free from addiction.” — William Sessions of BFF, Inc. 


To his credit, coupled with the divine calling on his life, the more that Sessions fought, the more he began to discover he had been strategically set aside for God’s use.

UNSHAKABLE FAITH — To his credit, coupled with the divine calling on his life, the more than Sessions fought, the more that he began to discover he had been strategically set aside for God’s use.

Because, after all, God was the Ultimately BFF he so desperately needed, especially during what was a dark season in his life.

“I got back in school and I created a more intense relationship with God,” said Sessions, sounding very much like a man who’s back and better than ever. “I faced much verbal abuse, persecution, and some setbacks, but with coming in contact with the right people and acquiring proven techniques and the knowledge I scarcely gained along the way, I was able to go from a homeless cocaine addict who were counted out by many only to realize that God had another plan for my life.”

And you wonder why God has, quite frankly, been Session’s Ultimately BFF from the outset — even when this addict-turned-businessman had struggled mightily to find a sense of direction in this thing called life.

Today, unlike never before, though, Sessions is fully persuaded that his calling is such that God has assigned him to reach back and help others rediscover their purpose.


AND THE BIBLE SAYS…

“That’s what I want to do with BFF…to help others put their Best Foot Forward and to also know that with BFF, we will definitely become your Best Friend Forever,” Session said.

Now that his nonprofit organization is in full operations, Sessions is now being afforded golden opportunities to share of his assortment of life-changing testimonies.

On May, 11, for instance, Sessions and his team will host a community wide event known as, “Living To Be A Better Me.”

SOLID SUPPORTING CAST — Now that his nonprofit organization is in full operations, Sessions is being afforded golden opportunities to share of his assortment of life-changing testimonies.

An event that will take place from 2 to 6 p.m. EST at Herman Park Center in nearby Goldsboro, North Carolina, professionals — particularly those who struggle with physical well-being, financial freedom, mental well-being, and spiritual enhancement — will be able to share and dine with each other, during which they will discuss how to become what Sessions calls, “a better me.”

“Everyone who wishes to thrive in 2019 needs to be present,” Sessions said.

GOD’S PLAN — Today, unlike never before, though, Sessions is fully persuaded that his calling is such that God has assigned him to reach back and help others rediscover their purpose.

Having been inspired by his uncle, Elder Levoin Troublefield, and his mentor, Clifton Smith, among others, Sessions is overwhelmingly grateful that God has strategically arranged for him to walk in his purpose — this after having pressed and persevered through arguably the darkest season of his life.

“What I like about the vision and business that God has given me is that I’m able to see lives drastically changed, because someone cared, said Sessions, whose ventures accommodates people and groups of all ages and ethnicities. “It is the greatest feeling in the world to have others come back and tell you that they were moved or positively changed by the things you’ve spoken or assisted with in their lives.”

Because, after all, that’s what friends are for.

Best Friends Forever, that is.

South Carolina entrepreneur Ebony Hughes defies health-related challenges, becomes a fixture for 7 Dimensions

In case you don’t know her, Ebony Hughes would like to introduce herself.

A native of Hemingway, South Carolina, Hughes, 35, is a proud graduate of Hemingway’s Carvers Bay High School.

She would eventually advance her educational endeavors at Coastal Carolina University in nearby Conway, which has greatly enabled her to pursue, fulfill, and carry out her dream as a rising businesswoman.


CONNECT WITH EBONY HUGHES: https://www.facebook.com/my7dimensions/
MAKING HER PRESENCE FELT — Georgetown, South Carolina-area businesswoman Ebony Hughes has become a fixture for 7 Dimensions, a universally-acclaimed online keto coaching platform, whereby Hughes is responsible for coaching people on achieving their health and fitness goals in seven areas of life.

Credit her seemingly dysfunctional and unhealthy lifestyle as arguably the biggest reasons why.

“After starting my insurance business and working around the clock to grow it successfully, my work and personal life became unbalanced,” Hughes told Making Headline News this week. “Over time, I became over weight. I had to buy larger clothes and I had become ashamed of my body.”

For Hughes, she was determined to see to it that such health-related hurdles were short-lived.

That, after all, practically sums up why she has become a fixture for 7 Dimensions, a universally-acclaimed online keto coaching platform, whereby Hughes is responsible largely for coaching people on achieving their health and fitness goals in seven areas of life.

“My team and I make sure that clients get a customized meal and training plan and follow up with them regularly, most times daily to motivate them to stay on track with their plan and remind them of their goals to keep them accountable,” said Hughes, providing a thorough overview of her business venture.

Amongst the factors that are especially intriguing about Hughes’ business is that because it is an online endeavor, she’s afforded the golden opportunity to have more of a global impact.

 

“I like that my business helps people on an online platform and app so that I can stay connected to my clients and have a more balanced life,” Hughes said of a venture that caters to people of all ages.

Interestingly, 7 Dimensions has evolved and attracted a global presence, in large part because it is committed to helping its clients embrace the notion that this journey has no final destination, according to a spokesperson for 7 Dimensions at https://www.my7dimensions.com/.

“We don’t stop when we find a treasure chest at the end of a rainbow,” the 7 Dimensions spokesperson added. “There are three treasures that you will find almost immediately, and that will grow in power every day you maintain this journey with us: getting healthier, sustained energy, and a love of life that can only come from the natural rush of endorphins blasting your body with every beat of your pounding heart.”

Much to the delight to Hughes, those are the essential and therapeutic benefits she has acquired since joining 7 Dimensions.

Which is to say that she has nowhere to go but up in what has become a globally-acclaimed company.

“I started feeling sluggish and tired,” said Hughes, recalling those during which she struggled with her health. “I just knew that I was sick and no doctor had to tell me this. The craziest part of it all is that I knew better as I majored in health promotion. I knew that I needed to lose the fat.

“I promised myself that would lose weight and joined a gym, and I lost a few pounds, but I still felt bad and gave up after a while of busting my butt at the gym and eating, what I thought was, healthy foods. A few short months later, I lost my breath and thought that I was going to die on my sofa. I began to pray to the Lord to ask Him to help me live so my children would not find me dead.” — Ebony Hughes 


 

For Hughes, God not only gave her another chance at life but, most importantly, He ushered her into the divine purpose for which He created her, something about which she doesn’t take lightly.

BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER — For Hughes, God not only gave her another chance at life but, most importantly, He ushered her into the divine purpose for which He created her, something about which she doesn’t take lightly.

“I immediately made the decision to see a weight-loss coach,” Hughes said. “I started researching diets and started to understand why I had not lost any significant amount of what. It’s because I was addicted to sugar, and most Americans are as well. I learned that quitting sugar or managing sugar cravings is harder to do than a person trying to quit heroin. After thousands of dollars spent, I did lose weight and I was motivated to help others do the same.”

She’s doing just that with God, her Helper, leading the way.

“I know through my own life experiences of being overweight, sick, and (harboring) low self-esteem, I knew others were going through the same thing,” said Hughes, adding that her children are amongst those who inspired her to achieve her health-related goals. “I believe cultural ideologies, education or the lack thereof, media, and other environmental factors affect a person’s outcome, so I want to be the mediator for as many people as I can help.”

New York author Shawn Headley’s new book enjoying instant success with unprecedented sales

I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all. (Ecclesiastes 9:11 NIV)


At the end of the real day, you’ve got to grasp a thorough concept of what it means to go far beyond start.

That, after all, practically sums up why Shawn Headley has become fully committed to often posing the million dollar question.

That is, “Are you confused about how to get started?

“God gave me the vision to write the book in 2016, but as the book title goes, I didn’t know how to start,” Headley, a Long Island, New York-area author, told Making Headline News this week.


PURCHASE AUTHOR SHAWN’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1727575997/

The book to which Headley is alluding is her informative and compelling project that is entitled, “The Start Is What Stops Most People: 7 Simple Steps To Starting Your Nonprofit Organization.”

A book that officially made its presence on the market a less than two months ago, Headley’s “The Start Is What Stops Most People: 7 Simple Steps To Starting Your Nonprofit Organization” is an extension of her Each One Teach One Mentoring Service, or nonprofit organization.

A native of the Bronx, New York, Headley has enjoyed what apparently has been instant success since the release her new book.

GPS SYSTEM TO SUCCESS — A book that officially made its presence on the market a less than two months ago, Headley’s “The Start Is What Stops Most People: 7 Simple Steps To Starting Your Nonprofit Organization” is an extension of her Each One Teach One Mentoring Service, or nonprofit organization.

That’s because she immediately sold out of her initial batch just days after fielding it (not including her online orders through Amazon).

More than anything, though, credit her immeasurable body of work through her professional as the biggest reason her book is enjoying sustained success.


“My reason for writing the book is because as I coach individuals, the one thing has been said throughout. I’ve always wanted to start my nonprofit and I didn’t know how and I didn’t know where to begin.” — Author Shawn Headley 


To her credit, all of that has changed considerably in recent years, in large part because Headley’s nonprofit organization experience spans more than eight years.

PUTTING IN WORK — More than anything, credit Headley’s immeasurable body of work through her professional as the biggest reason her book is enjoying sustained success.

For instance, Each One Teach One began with a vision to help givers in the nonprofit industry achieve what they deserve, according to a detailed breakdown of Headley’s organization at https://eachoneteachonementoring.com.

Such perseverance had ultimately led to Headley having established A Stairway To Hope — her very first nonprofit organization — in 2010.

So much for stopping at the very start, considering this progressive and resourceful businesswoman-turned-author needed roughly two weeks to start and finish “The Start Is What Stops Most People: 7 Simple Steps To Starting Your Nonprofit Organization.”


MORE ON EACH ONE TEACH ONE: https://eachoneteachonementoring.com

“The divine message I’m sending with the book is that if you’re arm with knowledge of how to execute your vision, then you can get your dream off the ground,” Headley explained. “The message I’m also trying to give is the start is what stops most people, but through this book, your new beginnings can be less stressful.”

Interestingly, it seems that Headley’s unique analogies and suggestions have inspired countless of people, particularly those who aspire to establish a nonprofit organization.

How else to explain the rapid sellout of her first batch of books?

“The feedback that I’ve gotten from the book is that it’s comprehensive and the light bulb goes off after reading the book,” Headley said. “I believe God put me on this earth as a giver.”

To her credit, Headley’s professional resume is such that she customarily gives mightily, courtesy of agape love, coupled with a wealth of experience as a nonprofit organization insider, of sorts.

“It started with my own nonprofit organization, A Stairway To Hope, which is a community outreach organization for individuals  and families in need,” said Headley, who has announced a second book is presently in the works and will be released by year’s end. “And now I create more givers by helping nonprofits get off the ground.”

Because, after all, at the end of the real day, you’ve got to grasp a thorough concept of what it means to go far beyond start.

Washington, DC-area author Kinite McCrae’s unorthodox connection to God gives way to an inspiring new book


Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8 KJV)


 

As it pertains to her faith walk, Kinite McCrae is…well…let’s put it this way:

Her walk with God is somewhat unconventional, to say the least.

By and large, McCrae isn’t whom many would deem “your typical” Christian story.

For starters, she was not raised in the church, nor did she grow up in a Christian-oriented community.

MASSIVE KINGDOM IMPACT — A native of Washington, DC, Kinite McCrae’s “I Am A Christian…This Is Why: A Logical Response To The Skeptic” will make its debut on November 18, a book that will be available for purchase on Amazon.com and on her personal website at https://www.authorkinite.com/.

Come to think of it, in fact, she spent her early adult years mostly skeptical about what she described as “organized religion,” not to mention the authenticity of the Bible until she consequently decided to embark upon a rather unorthodox journey, one that was centered on her having studied world religions in a search for truth.

What she had eventually discovered was that, well, only what we do for Christ will last.

That’s because during her in-depth spiritual journey, she had ultimately come to grips with the notion that Christianity is, in fact, logical and intelligent and that conclusion had eventually given way to her to accepting Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior.

Interestingly, that McCrae had made peace with God was a life-changing development, of sorts, an awe-inspiring occurrence that had proved to be the precursor to her present ministry, one that inspired her to compose the book entitled, “I Am A Christian…This Is Why: A Logical Response To The Skeptic.”

A book whereby God has infused within her the vision to compose some five years ago, McCrae’s “I Am A Christian…This Is Why: A Logical Response To The Skeptic” has been deemed what this writer has dubbed “a quick read,” one that provides what she labels to-the-point arguments, evidence-based answers, not to mention one that raises logical questions as a strategic way to provoke readers to engage in critical thinking, all the while assuming the desire to go further in their search for truth.

“Life happens and in my busyness, I put it on the back burner until this year, the Holy Spirit would not let me rest until I finished this book,” McCrae told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “After I returned from my mission’s trip to Africa, I was so inspired, I was able to finish in about two weeks.”

Much to her delight, McCrae is just days away from witnessing her newly-produced book make its much-anticipated presence on the market.

A native of Washington, DC, McCrae’s “I Am A Christian…This Is Why: A Logical Response To The Skeptic” will make its debut on November 18, a book that will be available for purchase on Amazon.com and on her personal website at https://www.authorkinite.com/.

When asked what was the single, most underlying reason she chose to produce her new book, McCrae said, “Most Christians know what they believe, but have difficulty explaining why they believe, which are two different questions with two different answers. I want to help equip Christians to logically and intelligently explain the why behind the what. (Furthermore), I want to help the skeptic or the person that’s on the fence by answering some of the difficult or confusing questions about Christianity.”

For what it’s worth, McCrae has gone to great lengths through her soon-to-be-released book to remind God’s people that we serve an “intelligent God” and an “intelligent Spirit” which means we should be able to defend the faith both intelligently and spiritually, she acknowledged.


WHO IS KINITE McCRAE? https://www.authorkinite.com/

HARVEST SEASON UNFOLDING — Much to her delight, McCrae is just days away from witnessing her newly-produced book make its much-anticipated presence on the market.

“After all, He said, ‘Come let us reason with one another,’” said McCrae, reciting the familiar Biblical passage that is Isaiah 1:18. “And the word, ‘reason,’ requires an exchange of intellect and ideas.”

A little less than two weeks away from its official release, McCrae is extremely grateful of the early favorable feedback of her book.

“It has been amazing,” McCrae said of the hoopla and buzz surrounding her newly-assembled written work. “I’ve had so many people tell me that I have explained things in a simple and logical way, a way that they never thought about before or had explained to them in all their years of church. And now they finally understand. I’m so humbled by that, because I know that the revelation truly comes from God, but that He would use me…all I can say is what is man that He is mindful.”

Fortunately for McCrae, God has already shown her much favor through a book that has yet to hit the market.

“I’ve already spoken at several conferences leading up to this launch, where I’ve had the opportunity to encourage and exhort woman, men and, youth,” said McCrae, whose official book launch is November 18 at 12 p.m. EST and will be hosted by her church (located at 3801 West Braddock Road in Alexandria, Virginia, inside T. C. Williams High School Minnie Howard Campus).

“All are welcome (to attend the book launch),” said McCrae, requesting that those who plan to attend to RSVP at www.authorkinite.com, considering lunch will be served. “Also, they don’t have to wait until 12 noon to show up; all are welcome to join us that morning for worship services, which begins at 9 am with breakfast.”

Also, McCrae announced that her forthcoming book is the first of the “I Am” series and that additional written documents are in the works, which will explain what she describes as other Bible difficulties, most notably heaven, hell, and life after death.

“I discovered early on that my spiritual gifts are exhortation, teaching and leading,” McCrae said. “So I would say that with this book, I will exhort, teach and through the work of the Holy Spirit, take part in leading many to Christ.”

Never mind that her walk with God has been somewhat unconventional, to say the least.

Maryland author Dallas Gordon defies a slew of hurdles, composes a kingdom-advancing book


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


Dallas Gordon’s book is a little more than a month removed from its much-anticipated release date and, much to her delight, it’s already having a massive kingdom impact.

According to those who are closely connected to Gordon, a Harford County, Maryland-based author, her newly-produced book entitled, “From Pain To Power: Embrace The Lesson And Reclaim Your Power,” will be the center of discussion during a local Bible study in the coming weeks.

GOD’S LEADING LADY — According to those who are closely connected to Dallas Gordon, a Hartford County, Maryland-based author, her newly-produced book entitled, “From Pain To Power: Embrace The Lesson And Reclaim Your Power,” will be the center of discussion during a local Bible study in the coming weeks.

For Gordon, such an intriguing development undoubtedly is in alignment with the divine purpose she’s convinced that God had for her book since He strategically assigned her to compose it.

“I had been writing this book since childhood, but never published anything until recently,” Gordon, an Owings Mills, Maryland native, told Making Headline News this week. “I was in a really hard season, and was writing my way through it.”

Because of who she is and because of where God is taking her, Gordon not only used her immeasurable gifts as a young writer to help spiritually bail her out of her tumultuous season in the wilderness.

Rather, she used her dazzling writing mechanics to help steer her into a much-needed and intimate fellowship with God.


PURCHASE DALLAS GORDON’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Pain-Power-Embrace-Lesson-Reclaim-ebook/dp/B07GFNSM5H


ROUND OF APPLAUSE — As expected, Gordon’s reading audience has collectively applauded and commended her for obeying God’s Voice by moving forward with a book she had finished writing some time last year.

That, to her credit, practically sums up why her newly-assembled project is having an immediate kingdom impact.

“It was during hard times that it was impressed in my spirit to just write,” said Gordon, explaining how God had gone about giving her the vision to write her book. “During that season, I was so conflicted as to why everything seemed to be going wrong. I could barely utter a word in prayer, so I just wrote.”

For what it worth is, the more she wrote, the more revelation knowledge she began to acquire.

The more revelation knowledge she began to acquire, the more she began to steadfastly build up her spirit man.

The more she began to build up her spirit man, the more she began to witness just why God had strategically handpicked her to produce a life-enhancing, spiritually-driven book for such a time as now.

Never mind that her heart was suddenly broken into pieces along what undoubtedly was a rough and rugged, sometimes seemingly unbearable journey as a young writer.

“My dad passed away a couple years ago during the season of me writing this book,” Gordon explained.” His death was very unexpected and made me realize just how much life isn’t promised. This heartbreak pushed me over the edge and into actually publishing my very first book.”

The rest, as they say, was history.

BUT GOD — Because of who she is and because of where God is taking her, Gordon not only used her immeasurable gifts as a young writer to help spiritually bail her out of her tumultuous season in the wilderness.

Despite the untimely death of her father, despite the assortment of unfavorable situations and circumstances, even when it seemed her faith was bleak and on the brink of evaporating, God has ultimately stepped in and rescued her child as only He could.


“That pain is inevitable, but we can change our perspective and take our power back while doing so,” said Gordon, explaining the slew of developments surrounding a From Pain To Power book that is comprised of 84 pages and was officially released on September 17. “I believe one of my great purposes in life is to lead people into freedom, mentally, spiritually and financially. This book is helping people to live a life of freedom and have joy even in trying times.”


As expected, Gordon’s reading audience has collectively applauded and commended her for obeying God’s Voice by moving forward with a book she had finished writing some time last year.

FAMILY FOCUS — Gordon’s book is a little more than a month removed from its much-anticipated release date and, much to her delight, it’s already having a massive kingdom impact.

“I’m amazed by the positive reactions,” said Gordon, who’s widely also as a motivational speaker and expert business coach. “I’ve received from the book. It’s changing lives one person at a time.”

Interestingly, Gordon’s new book has garnered a favorable media presence, considering she was recently was interviewed on the Mavericks On The Move Show and also appeared on the show, “Accelerate With Valencia Daniel.”

“I want for people to know that no matter what they’re grieving, whether it is a loss of a business, spouse or loved one, that there is life after losing someone or something,” Gordon said. “Problems happen, but we can walk in victory when we choose the higher road, which is positive thinking. With a strong mindset and faith in God, we can conquer anything.”

Something that, in all likelihood, will be reinforced in the coming week’s when her book becomes the center of discussion during a local Bible study.

Talk about God using His child for His glory.

Baltimore Leadership Coach JaVaughna Bevel bringing out positive change through her flourishing organization

There’s no other way to put it.

JaVaughna Bevel is all about helping implement change.

A PROVEN LEADER — A native of Baltimore, JaVaughna Bevel, 33, is widely known as a Certified Leadership Coach and the CEO of A Leading Way, which is a leadership development company, whereby she works specifically with a variety of organizations to improve their leadership capacity through professional and personal development workshops, training, and assessments, among other things.

“I love that I am able to make an impact on multiple lives by interacting with just one person,” Bevel, a Baltimore, Maryland-area businesswoman, told Making Headline News this week. “Leadership is such a complex subject and people tend to forget that leaders are servants.”

To her distinctly unique credit, Bevel has appropriately provided a whole new twist to the significance of displaying a servant’s heart.

A native of Baltimore, Bevel, 33, is widely known as a Certified Leadership Coach and the CEO of A Leading Way, which is a leadership development company, whereby she works specifically with a variety of organizations to improve their leadership capacity through professional and personal development workshops, training, and assessments, among other things.

MORE ON JAVAUGHNA BEVEL’S A LEADING WAY: https://www.aleadingway.com

“I provide training on diversity and cultural competency as well,” Bevel explained. “I also coach female leaders on navigating life as a woman in power with multiple roles — mother, wife, friend, sister, confident, girl boss, etc.”

In addition, Bevel’s organization offers one-on-one coaching, as well as group coaching, online training, and in-person workshops to women in power, particularly those who aspire to achieve their goals while standing firm in their success.

Interestingly, Bevel announced that she’s presently developing a youth leadership academy for girls ranging in ages 8 to 17, an institution that will focus largely on self-confidence, self-perception, team building, making positive decisions, and being a positive leader amongst their friends, she emphasized.

A TRUE PROFESSIONAL — Given the notable and immeasurable strides she’s made in such a short timeframe as a businesswoman, one would be hard-pressed to believe that it’s only been a year since Bevel deemed it essential to delve off into the ever-so-competitive world of entrepreneurship.

“I am able to go into an organization and remind leaders of their true purpose which, in turn, improves the outcomes for employees, customers, and partners,” Bevel said. “Better leadership equals better business practices. Better business practices equals increased revenue.”

Given the notable and immeasurable strides she’s made in such a short timeframe as a businesswoman, one would be hard-pressed to believe that it’s only been a year since Bevel deemed it essential to delve off into the ever-so-competitive world of entrepreneurship.

“I didn’t decide to become an entrepreneur until I was 32 years old,” Bevel said. “From the time I started working at 16, I was fine with working for someone else. I was content with receiving a reliable source of income that allotted me a 30-minute lunch break and four weeks’ vacation. I was content with being responsible for only my actions, but I was unhappy.”

SOLID TRACK RECORD — While she’s assumed the CEO label for her company for just one year, her wealth of experience in leadership, team building, communication and interpersonal skills date back more than 10 years.

All things considered, such unhappiness had ultimately fueled Bevel’s desire to devise ways to broaden her horizons, to seek and embrace new challenges, thus maximize her potential.

To her credit, she persevered diligently until she reaped favorable results.

“I needed to change everything, because I was so unfulfilled in my professional life,” Bevel explained.

A professional stint that spans more than a decade — most notably as a full time registered diagnostic medical sonographer in urology, fertility, and general sonography — Bevel undoubtedly boasts the educational credentials that have greatly enabled her to function in her element for such a time as now.

A 2002 graduate of Baltimore’s Paul Laurence Dunbar Senior High School, Bevel enrolled at nearby Coppin State University, where during a brief tenure she majored in General Science with an emphasis on Biology.

Consequently, she enrolled at Sanford Brown Institute, which led to her having acquired a certificate in sonography in 2007. Then in 2016, Bevel was awarded a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Health Sciences from The University of South Dakota.

While she’s assumed the CEO label for her company for just one year, her wealth of experience in leadership, team building, communication and interpersonal skills date back more than 10 years.

Which, as a result, goes to show there’s no other way to put it.

Bevel is all about helping implement change as evidenced by her remarkable progress within the past year.

“When I work with women leaders, it brings joy to my heart when they are finally able to live their best lives, because of something they learned from me,” said Bevel, adding that her children are amongst those — her “No. 1 reason,” she stressed — who have fueled her desire to live out her dreams. “Helping other women with lives similar to my own and (helping them) learn to navigate through the chaos and emerge on top is the ultimate gift for me. I love working with young girls to get them started early in their roles as women in power. Shaping them into young women that are prideful and purposeful in their actions. I am elated to be able to help young girls eliminate self-doubt and become, fierce, respected and positive leaders and role models.”

As for her mission for sharing — and inspiring — before the masses A Leading Way, Bevel doesn’t shy away from the notion that it all boils down to change. Positive change, that is.

SIGN OF THINGS TO COME — Interestingly, Bevel announced that she’s presently developing a youth leadership academy for girls ranging in ages 8 to 17, an institution that will focus largely on self- confidence, self- perception, team building, making positive decisions, and being a positive leader amongst their friends, she emphasized.

“I want to change the way people view leadership and give them alternative ways to lead through positivity, inspiration, creativity and innovation,” Bevel said. “I became a leadership coach to transcend the barriers that have been invisibly placed on leadership roles and open people’s eyes to people centered leadership that will not only improve business but improve the well- being of others because people will feel valued, and when they feel valued they feel confident in their abilities. My mission is to inspire leaders to create more leaders.”

Especially her beloved children.

“I am a firm believer of my purpose being my passion and my reasons being my why,” said Bevel, adding that Caitlyn Davis, President of Empower Girls Inc., are amongst those who helped steer her in the right direction. “My children look to me for guidance and when they see mommy taking control of her time, her happiness and her life, they are excited. They know that mommy can spend more time with them and that they can achieve anything that they set their minds to.”

Just like she did.

There’s no other way to put it.

New York Celebrity/Relationship Therapist Vladimire Calixte: ‘I really want the professional athletes to inquire about Therapy For Black Men’

“I really want the professional athletes to inquire about my new Therapist Directory TherapyForBlackMen.org, because strength still needs support.”  — New York Businesswoman Vladimire Calixte

 

Vladimire Calixte can be appropriately described as a number of things.

Game changer is surely one of them.

HAVING A GLOBAL IMPACT — A native of Haiti who migrated to the United States at the tender age of eight, Vladimire Calixte is widely known for her sustained success as a New York City-based entrepreneur, a tenure that spans nearly two decades.

“I am so excited and honored to be on the cover of Bronze Magazine May Issue,” Calixte told Making Headline News this week.

Much to her delight, there are a variety of reasons why Calixte’s countenance is such that she’s harboring an array of excitement, all while waiting with great expectancy the immeasurable success that figures to come her way in the foreseeable future.

A native of Haiti who migrated to the United States at the tender age of eight, Calixte is widely known for her sustained success as a New York City-based entrepreneur, a tenure that spans nearly two decades.

“My own past challenges and emotional pain inspired me to do this work,” Calixte said.

The work to which Calixte is alluding is her valiant, well-publicized contributions as a Celebrity and Relationship Therapist, as well as an accomplished Author and Transformational Speaker in the Private Practice industry known as Life Rebuilding.

MORE ON LIFE BUILDING: https://www.liferebuilding.com/

A New York City-based establishment in which Calixte is the proud founder of the Therapist Directory called Therapy For Black Men, amongst her notable responsibilities is centered largely on helping men of color find a wide range of resources aimed at helping them in their search for a multiculturally-competent therapist.

“I engage individuals, couples, and families in therapy,” Calixte explained. “As such, I work with children, adolescents, women, men, couples and families from all walks of life, including celebrities, politicians and professional athletes.”

When asked how her competitive drive in life has greatly propelled her for your business venture, Calixte appropriately provided a whole new twist to such an inquiry.

GAME CHANGER — Calixte is Celebrity and Relationship Therapist as well as an accomplished Author and Transformational Speaker in the Private Practice industry known as Life Rebuilding.

“I wouldn’t say a competitive drive, but a deep passion to help others live a powerful life by supporting and challenging them to become emotionally free,” Calixte said. “That’s what ultimately sent me on the path to opening up my own practice. Furthermore, because of my private practice, I am able to support more people in their healing journeys via several platforms such as writing my books, speaking, as well as radio and television.”

A progressive and thriving business venture that is starting to attract more of a global presence although it is based in America’s largest city, Calixte has certainly paid her dues, particularly with regards to savoring sustained success and establishing solid rapports with celebrity athletes.

Interestingly, she boasts the essential educational credentials to function mightily in her element for such a time as now.

Having earned a Sociology degree from Hunter College, Calixte followed up that milestone by earning a Master’s degree in Applied Psychology from the historic New York University.

Interestingly, she is currently a Licensed Mental Health Counselor as well as a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor, and her presence in the psychology industry spans more than a decade, during which she has helped various clients around the world overcome addiction, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, trauma, and sexual abuse and PTSD.

Also, Calixte is currently pursuing her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology.

As for her wealth of experience in her selected field, Calixte routinely works with children, adolescents, women, men, couples, and families from all walks of life, including celebrities, politicians and professional athletes, she acknowledged (“I really want the professional athletes to inquire about Therapy for Black Men.”)

“I am a big proponent that our actions affect seven generations,” said Calixte, adding that her own past challenges and emotional pain inspired me to do this work. “My work is supporting people to heal from wounds and traumas, which will greatly impact their lives seven generations over. I know what it feels like to muster the courage to be imperfect and be ok with that. I know what it feels like to grow up without a father. My mom did her very best as a single mother; however, my father’s absence was painful for me for a long time. I know the feeling of “emptiness” and “worthlessness” because my father chose not to be in my life.”

For what it’s worth, fortifying an array of transparency to those whom she assists has proven extremely beneficial, thus contributed mightily to Calixte’s success.

“Living that experience was a source of hurt, anger, and feelings of diminishment,” Calixte recalled. “I have journeyed from pain to inner peace. Also, at age 14, we had a fire in my apartment on a very cold January day. The bed that I was sleeping on caught fire. I could have died. We ran out of the apartment with nothing but the clothes on our backs.

“Everything was completely destroyed,” Calixte continued. “So when a client comes to me and states, ‘I am down to nothing’ or ‘I am having empty feelings.’  I can look into this person’s eyes and know exactly what he or she is feeling because I have been there. It’s that connection. That is what gives purpose to my life.”

INTERNATIONALLY-ACCLAIMED — Calixte’s immeasurable body of work practically sums up why she has been invited by Euro Mental Health to be its Keynote Speaker at the Annual Congress on Mental Health in July 2018 in Paris, France.

Not only that, Calixte’s immeasurable body of work practically sums up why she has been invited by Euro Mental Health to be its Keynote Speaker at the Annual Congress on Mental Health in July 2018 in Paris, France.

Oh, and let’s not forget the other dazzling honor whereby she will be thrust on the cover of Bronze Magazine’s May issue.

“By the grace of God, I am honored to be named the No. 1 Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York by Thumbtack for 2018,” said Calixte, who has also announced that she will be hosting a nine-city book tour for the forthcoming re-release of her award-winning book entitled, Naked and Transparent: Six Vital Tools for Knowing Yourself and Attracting Healthy Relationships.

“My work enables people to become aware of their narrative identity,” Calixte added. “I am a big proponent of knowing who you really are. When you know who you really are, it will change the way live and the way you love. Similarly, it will give you an unparalleled sense of clarity.”

Spoken like a true game changer.

Washington, D.C. area realtor Aaron Person making much noise in ever-so-competitive real estate industry

Just recently, longtime Washington, D.C. area realtor Aaron Person was asked why is it important to esteem others daily highly than himself, a notable suggestion by which the Apostle Paul once offered to the church at Philippi.

MAKING MAJOR STRIDES — An Upper Marlboro, Maryland native and an alumnus of North Carolina Central University, Aaron D. Person is widely known as a licensed Realtor® in Washington, D.C. and greater Maryland areas, most notably as a fixture with Exit Bennett Realty, located at 7701 Greenbelt Road, Suite 100, in Greenbelt, Maryland.

As usual, Person was rather forthright and straight to the point.

“Purchasing a home for most people is the biggest investment they’ll make in life,” Person told Making Headline News. “It’s imperative that people understand the financial power that can be gained from being a home owner.  There are far more advantages to owning opposed to renting.  It’s extremely important to ensure that people understand those advantages.  Then, when ready, help them find a house to call home.”

To his credit, Person’s reputation is such that his keen professionalism as a realtor has been nothing short of impressive since he embarked upon this ever-so-competitive real estate industry in March 2004.

An Upper Marlboro, Maryland native and an alumnus of North Carolina Central University, Person is widely known as a licensed Realtor® in Washington, D.C. and greater Maryland areas, most notably as a fixture with Exit Bennett Realty, located at 7701 Greenbelt Road, Suite 100, in Greenbelt, Maryland. 

Having adopted the trade name, “The House Person,” Person would be the first to admit that arguably his grandest feeling in his profession is when homebuyers reach the much-anticipated closing stage of what can otherwise be a stressful, yet sometimes discouraging process.
“I love handing a first time home buyer the keys to their house,” Person said. “I feel honored to play a small role in the acquisition of the largest financial investment most people make in their lifetime.  It’s definitely a life-changing moment for people, and I’m fortunate enough to have a front row seat.”

 

MAN OF COMPASSION — “Purchasing a home for most people is the biggest investment they’ll make in life,” Aaron Person told Making Headline News. “It’s imperative that people understand the financial power that can be gained from being a home owner.”

In addition to Person’s compassion for his clients, amongst his key objectives as a veteran realtor is ensuring that others along with homebuyers benefit in some shape or form.

In a nutshell, it’s safe to assume that when home seekers entrust Person to help them garner favorable results during their home-buying process, others affiliated with the upcoming transition will greatly reap the celebratory benefits in some aspect.

That’s “The House Person” for you.

“I used to say that I help people buy and sell houses, which is true on the surface,” Person explained. “What I really do is foster economic development on the city, county, state, country and global levels. Every time someone buys or sells a house, that transaction helps to employ everyone associated with any part of a house. That includes the manufacturer of all items in the house, to the people who transport these items, to the people who actually installed them in the house.”

As for those who have greatly fueled his desire to maximize his potential, thus live daily on the larger side of God as we are reminded according to Philippians 4:13, Person acknowledges that renowned life coaches Les Brown and Eric Thomas essentially top his list.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — Speaking of classrooms, aside from enabling homebuyers to fulfill their long-awaited dreams of making the lofty transition to their home, Person is now devising ways to better educate home seekers and potential homebuyers through informative, life-enhancing seminars.

“The inspiration for the public speaking side of things would be Les Brown and Eric Thomas,” Person said. “Both offer some great motivational content” As far as the teaching side of things, it’s because my 8 ½ year working in PG County classrooms.”

Speaking of classrooms, aside from enabling homebuyers to fulfill their long-awaited dreams of making the lofty transition to their home, Person is now devising ways to better educate home seekers and potential homebuyers through informative, life-enhancing seminars.

BEEN THERE, DONE THAT — To his credit, hosting seminars isn’t new to Person, who first began such a trend approximately two years after he made his professional real estate debut.

“I expect to continue providing great content during the home buying seminar I host,” Person said. “I also expect everyone who attends a Seminar to receive enough information that they feel comfortable enough with the home buying process that they’re ready to engage in that process.”

To his credit, hosting seminars isn’t new to Person, who first began such a trend approximately two years after he made his professional real estate debut.

“I’ve taught the working with a Realtor® portion of a Home Buying Seminar for various non-profit organizations in the DC/Metro area since 2006,” Person said. “I started hosting my own events in September 2015.”

GREAT COMPANY — As for those who have greatly fueled his desire to maximize his potential, thus live daily on the larger side of God as we are reminded according to Philippians 4:13, Person acknowledges that renowned life coaches Les Brown and Eric Thomas essentially top his list.

Looking ahead, don’t expect Person to slow down anytime soon, particularly as it relates to his well-publicized career as a flourishing realtor.

By and large, given the success he’s enjoyed in recent years, coupled with his wealth of knowledge in this industry, it’s safe to say that his best and brightest days undoubtedly are well ahead of him.

“In addition to the Home Buyer Seminar I host, there is a follow up session available that goes deeper into the financials of how to prequalify for a mortgage, curing credit & writing a winning offer,” said Person, sounding just as confident about his craft as ever before. “Upon departure, attendees are pre-approved or at least know what specifically they need to do in order to get pre-approved.  But to me, the best is that my team and I provide educators who utilize our services during the home buying process a discount of over $2,000 towards the cost to purchase.”

As usual, Person was rather forthright and straight to the point.

That’s “The House Person” for you.
