North Carolina author Marcell Gill’s “Get Rid Of Yourself” book drawing constant rave reviews


Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. (Philippians 4:8 KJV)


Sometime in the Summer of 2017, God strategically placed Marcell Gill on an assignment, one that was centered largely on helping people to alter their way of thinking.

For Gill, it was an monumental assignment he graciously embraced.


VISION UNFOLDING 

USED BY GOD — A book in which North Carolina author Marcell Gill needed a little more than a year to compose, “Get Rid of Yourself” headlines, among other things, this author’s featured purpose that’s geared toward helping people change their philosophy, he emphasized.
“I believe my purpose is to help people change their philosophy,” Gill, a Fayetteville, North Carolina-area author, told Making Headline News this week. “(I want to help) change the way they process problems and to react to them in a positive manner. I firmly believe that this book can make decision making a lot easier in the future.”

The book to which Gill is alluding is his newly-assembled written document entitled, “Get Rid of Yourself.”

A MUST READ

GOD DID IT — Much to his delight, Gill said his authorship debut undoubtedly is a “major milestone” in his life and that God is the Beneficiary of all the credit.

“The message I want people to download in their spirit is that you have been given power and authority over your mind and body,” Gill said. You, the spirit, are responsible for everything that happens in your life.”

Interestingly, Gill, by all accounts, stressed that we are not as powerless as we are taught to believe, something that, in many aspects, has crippled countless people, particularly those in the household of faith.

“Abba is our Guide, but He cannot make us get up and do anything,” Gill said. “The work that needs to be done is done through our hands. Not simply by praying and believing, but through work as well.”

MUCH INSIGHT — Interestingly, Gill, by all accounts, stressed that we are not as powerless as we are taught to believe, something that, in many aspects, has crippled countless people, particularly those in the household of faith.

A book that is just weeks removed from its official release,  Gill’s “Get Rid of Yourself” has already generated favorable feedback which, to his credit, figures to be a sign of things to come.

“The overall response has been stellar,” said Gill, a U. S. Army veteran. “The beta readers shared a genuine appreciation for my transparency and the willingness to discuss taboo subjects.”

CHECK THIS OUT — A book that is just weeks removed from its official release, Gill’s “Get Rid of Yourself” has already generated favorable feedback which, to his credit, figures to be a sign of things to come.

“The Father has allowed me the opportunity to share this with the world and has equipped me to do so,” said Gill, adding that a few local speaking engagements are presently in the works and the he’s open to accepting more as they arise. “It’s all about changing lives and this is just the beginning.” 


As expected, Gill has announced that other books are forthcoming — much sooner than later.

HE AIN’T DONE — As expected, Gill has announced that other books are forthcoming — much sooner than later.

“I think it’s only fair to write another book based on adding to yourself since the first book speaks on ridding ourselves of the wrong mindset,” Gill said. “This project may become a series in the near future.”

Of course, Gill doesn’t shy away from the notion that he’d be remiss if he didn’t offer this notable suggestion: “The last message I want to leave (my readers) with is this: Continuously renew your mind every day. Every single day. Form positive habits. Be the cause and reap the benefits of the effect. Trust God and manifest love at all times.”

Houston businesswoman Dr. Tracy Allen entering her 26th year as an accomplished income tax preparer

DALLAS — The annual tax peak season is officially underway.

And once again, Houston businesswoman Dr. Tracy Allen is greatly prepared to assist taxpayers to achieve their goals and objectives, particularly with regards to fielding sizable federal tax refunds.

A native of Alexandria, Louisiana, Allen’s professional experience in the ever-so-competitive tax industry spans nearly three decades.


SETTING TRENDS

DESTINY STEPS — The owner and CEO of TA Tax & Accounting, Dr. Tracy Allen’s rise as one of Houston’s finest tax preparers began sometime in 1992, during which she initially commenced to preparing taxes as a hobby.

The owner and CEO of TA Tax & Accounting, Allen’s rise as one of Houston’s finest tax preparers began sometime in 1992, during which she initially commenced to preparing taxes as a hobby.

However, as she began to field constant requests and inquiries from individuals about preparing their taxes, it wasn’t long thereafter that she deemed it essential to establish a business venture.

Here is she today, steadfastly fulfilling and carrying out her vision with God, her Helper, leading the way.


“(I love) helping people get the most money for less and helping others become free of IRS debt from back taxes and audits,” Allen told Making Headline News during a recent interview.


All things considered, there’s even one intriguing goal Allen acknowledged she’d like to accomplish much sooner than later.

“(I’d like to) become financially free and retire early,” said Allen, a longtime Certified Public Accountant and psychologist.

 

A business venture that accommodates people ranging in ages 18-and-up, Allen’s TA & TA Tax & Accounting customarily services tax payers nationwide.

“(I assist) everyone, ages 18 to 100,” Allen said. “If you work, are paid in taxes, or own a business — big or small — or corporations (I can help you).”

For what it’s worth, Allen’s passion for establishing her own tax preparation business was spearheaded in large part from the continuous backing and valiant support of her family.

Even after the death of her husband a little more than two decades ago, Allen sensed that as a single parent, it is absolutely essential that she go to great lengths to birth her vision as a rising entrepreneur.

Yep. Here is she, still fulfilling and carrying out her vision with God, her Helper, leading the way.

“My children have always been my inspiration,” Allen said. “I was 27 when I lost their father and my husband and I had to provide for them as a single mother, and I had to do everything I could to make sure they had the best of everything.”

Today, unlike never before, Allen’s TA & TA Tax & Accounting is such that it is committed to helping ensure that its clients’ achieve the maximum satisfaction through its services.

KEEP ON PRESSING — Even after the death of her husband a little more than two decades ago, Allen sensed that as a single parent, it is absolutely essential that she go to great lengths to birth her vision as a rising entrepreneur.

“I live to help others in all walks of life,” said Allen, who is scheduled to participate in the Heart 4 The Homeless Fashion Show in March. “I do not walk my living to be in vain.”

Amongst the reasons she has become destined to esteeming others highly than herself is that she journeys through life — as precious and fragile as it — exemplifying the golden rule.

“I live by treat others as you wish to be treated,” Allen said. “Helping others to succeed has always been my passion.”

Texas Gospel Music Excellence Awards to take place February 14-17 from Houston

 


And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 5:23 KJV)


DALLAS — Gospel artists around the country will be afforded the golden opportunity to acquire the exposure they so desperately seek during the upcoming Texas Gospel Music Excellence Awards.

A three-day event that will take place February 14-17 at Houston’s  Marriott Hotel Hobby Airport — located at 9100 Gulf Freeway — the TGMEA will is annual event that is centered largely on providing a platform for new gospel artists, most notably those who aspire to move up the ranks of the music industry, a spokesperson told Making Headline News this week.


IT’S ALL ABOUT KING JESUS 

DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS — Gospel artists around the country will be afforded the golden opportunity to acquire the exposure they so desperately seek during the upcoming Texas Gospel Music Excellence Awards.

In addition to an event that has been in existence for a little more than two decades, artists and aspiring artists will have the chance to grasp a thorough overview of what  TGMEA organizers have labeled the “vehicle of education and networking opportunities.”

“These efforts have assisted in the springboard of many of gospel artists in the past, providing a face-to-face experience with other artists, promoters, producers, and media (personalities),” said a spokesperson for the TGMEA.


MORE ON THE TGMEA: https://www.facebook.com/events/2177642512456944/

Powered by the Excellence Awards nonprofit organization, the theme that organizers have adopted during the 2019 TGMEA is: Focusing On The Total Person: Mind, Body, And Soul,” a featured slogan that is accompanied by the familiar Biblical passage that is 1 Thessalonians 5:23.

As usual, the TGMEA is being organized by a host of individuals, most notably its Co-Founders, Pastor Larry Davies and his wife, First Lady Sharon Davies.

The TGMEA is available to gospel artists nationwide, event organizers emphasized.

“Attending this event will afford the new artists some exposure and knowledge of how the industry operates, what it takes to become successful, and to learn the language of the industry,” said a spokesperson for the TGMEA. “Due to the fact that in this new age of gospel music, the changes in the industry are ever so changing. But if any new artists are determined that this is the way they want to go, attending this event will be a help.

“Including awarding these artists for their creativity and hard work in gospel ministry as an independent artist, we have a chance to exhibit our appreciation via the gospel community.”

Interestingly, organizers said artists in attendance will have an opportunity to have their music projects serviced by what is known as its “servicing area,” during which they will pass their respective projects to various radio stations and media personnel on hand for the TGMEA.


“Of course, if the up-and-coming artists perform on any of the events scheduled during the event, (they will be afforded the opportunity) to be heard and identified amongst their constituents and other media affiliates,” said a spokesperson for the TGMEA.


And, just like in years’ past, the TGMEA will include its customary Morning Glory worship to commence each day of the three-day event, as well as a Gospel Music Industry Educational Workshop, Praise and Worship Workshop, Praise Dance Workshop, and a Women of Excellence Forum and Book Release (brunch tickets are $35.00).


GOD’S LEADING LADY 

Also, there will be a Preachers and Ministers Forum, and Ambassadors Annual Meeting, a Valentine’s Day Late Night Soiree (which is $35.00 per couple), a Late Night New Artist Showcase, and the TGMEA finale that is known as CHOIRMANIA.

“We encourage everyone to come witness the various ministries and anointed talents of our delegates,” said a spokesperson for the TGMEA.

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.”


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

“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.

CHECK YA SELF — While such an intriguing, yet spiritually gut-checking book is seemingly a monumental risk for this new author, one thing’s for certain about Jenni A: She’s all for taking risks, especially given her thought-provoking assessments in her newly-assembled book.

By and large, Jenni A doesn’t shy away from the notion that what it all boils down to is women pausing every now and then and taking a much-needed self-assessment, particularly as it pertains to their relationship with their male counterpart.

Talk about keeping it 100 for all the right and essential reasons.

“They never want to take a look at themselves,” Jenni A is swift to acknowledge, offering some seemingly constructive criticism to the ladies. “They immediately want to point fingers at everyone but themselves, and it’s not right and you know it.”

South Carolina Pastor TrVera Williams leading God’s people to make a ‘U Turn’ for Christ

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES PASTOR TRVERA WILLIAMS 


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)


Just after midday EST on Thursday, TrVera Williams took to her Facebook page, where she staged a rather intriguing and thought-provoking video.

The footage before her gallery of social media followers read: YOU ARE NEXT IN LINE FOR A MIRACLE.

Ahhh…just the ideal message by this devout, big-hearted woman of faith whom, to her credit, is being used by God to advance the kingdom unlike never before, for such pivotal time as now. 

“When the Lord placed in my spirit to transition, I just didn’t see how that would work,” Williams, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, explaining in great detail the events that had ultimately given way to her establishing a ministry. “Being single and the sole bread winner, my questions were: How am I going to pay my bills and what am I going to do with the business bills?”

U-TURN INTO MORE SUCCESS — A native of Jamestown, South Carolina, Trvera Williams has made some pretty remarkably and progressive strides as the Founder and Senior Pastor of U Turn For Christ Evangelistic Ministries, Inc., which will be celebrating five years of existence in what has been deemed Harvest Celebration 2018, a three-day, power-packed event that will take place November 16-18.

As Williams consequently found it, because her calling to the ministry essentially was God’s will, it was also, by all accounts, His bill.

Yep, that’s just like God.


“The Lord told me that He would take care of me and that I was not to go get another job, but my job was to get up every morning, get dressed and go upstairs and spend time with Him. Initially, fear and anger were present, because I didn’t understand why God would take something away that He told me to build.” — Pastor Trvera Williams 


That Williams has steadfastly obeyed the Voice of God has benefited her mightily since she ceremoniously delved off into ministry full time.

SOLID CHRISTIAN FOUNDATION — Having grown up in what is known as the Jehovah Holiness Church, Williams and her family, she explained, were affiliated with the First Born Church Of The Living God, a denomination that is based in Waycross, Georgia.

A native of Jamestown, South Carolina, Williams has made some pretty remarkably and progressive strides as the Founder and Senior Pastor of U Turn For Christ Evangelistic Ministries, Inc., which will be celebrating five years of existence in what has been deemed Harvest Celebration 2018, a three-day, power-packed event that will take place November 16-18.

A non-denominational institution that Williams founded in November 2013, U Turn For Christ is housed in the historic Berea area of Greenville, South Carolina, which is part of the Greenville, Mauldin, and Easley metropolitan statistical areas — a town that is comprised of roughly 14,295 residents, according to the latest U. S. census.

“He then said He was taking it away, but, instead, I was trading in my business, Serenity Rehab And Wellness Center, for something better,” said Williams, recalling the infancy stages of her ministry.

Interestingly, U Turn For Christ’s regular worship services took place in the gymnasium of Williams’ place of business in Winter 2013.

Today, however, this up-and-coming ministry’s present site is located at 6243 White Horse Road, Suite F in Greenville.

A church whereby this clergywoman is widely known for emphasizing the spirit of excellence throughout the Body of Christ and in the community, Williams’ professional ministerial resume is such that she isn’t just known for being a solid and notable pastor.

To her credit, coupled with the divine purpose for which she was created, Williams is widely known also as a godly mentor to a host of leaders, particularly those whom likewise have been called to the ministry.

ADVANCING THE KINGDOM — In 2017, Williams witnessed the release of her book entitled, “A Journey With A Promise,” an awe-inspiring written document that is comprised of poems, as well as recording an inspirational scripture and Prayer CD entitled, “Worship In The Word With Anointed Keys.”

Credit her notable and rich upbringing in the church as amongst the reasons Williams is yet witnessing her destiny unfold right before her eyes.

“Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, you can do all things through Christ Who strengthens you, be who God has called you to be,” said Williams, explaining what were amongst the key and strategic values her parents taught her as a child.

Having grown up in what is known as the Jehovah Holiness Church, Williams and her family, she explained, were affiliated with the First Born Church Of The Living God, a denomination that is based in Waycross, Georgia.

The daughter to a mother, who was an evangelist and father, who was a deacon, Williams practically grew up in the church.

GOD’S LEADING LADY — For what’s it worth, that Williams had begun preaching the gospel at the tender age of 16 essentially was a prelude to what is taken place at this stage in her life, a trend that was highlighted by her officially accepting her calling, thus selling out solely to God in 1999.

“I grew up, singing in the choir, being active in the youth department, on speaking programs for youth district meetings,” said Williams, once of a product of the historic Church of God In Christ. “(I also) transitioned into playing the drums and then the keyboard of which I continue to play.”


For what’s it worth, that Williams had begun preaching the gospel at the tender age of 16 essentially was a prelude to what is taking place at this stage in her life, a trend that was highlighted by her officially accepting her calling, thus selling out solely to God in 1999.

How else to explain why she was next in line for a miracle all along?

“My mother says that when I was younger I would preach to my stuff animals,” Williams jokingly said, but with a straight face.

LET US GO INTO GOD’S HOUSE — A non-denominational institution that Williams founded in November 2013, U Turn For Christ is housed in the historic Berea area of Greenville, South Carolina, which is part of the Greenville, Mauldin, and Easley metropolitan statistical area, a town that is comprised of roughly 14,295 residents, according to the latest U. S. census.

Much to her delight, she routinely preaches before people from various walks of life, people who are discouraged and wounded and spiritually incarcerated, people who are in dire need to change the overall landscape of their lives, all the while drawing closer to God in the process.

After all, this is what making a U-Turn for Christ is all about.

“This testimony shows me how I thought I believed and trusted (God), but I saw that I believed as far as the bank account and the pay day, because I knew with my profession, I would not be jobless,” said Williams who, last year, witnessed the much-anticipated release of her book entitled, “A Journey With A Promise,” an awe-inspiring written document of poems. “But this test has helped me stand and continue to build U Turn For Christ Evangelistic Ministries on a sure foundation.”

APPLE OF GOD’S EYE — Much to her delight, Williams routinely preaches before people from various walks of life, people who are discouraged and spiritually incarcerated, people who are in dire need to change the overall landscape of their lives, all the while drawing closer to God in the process. After all, this is what making a U-Turn for Christ is all about.

A solid, faith-based foundation that undoubtedly will stand the test of time with God, its Helper, leading the way.

“Throughout the transition period and for about six months,” said Williams, “not one bill went unpaid, and many bills were written off, all because my faith came up.”

Indeed it deed.

For five years and counting.

Yep, that’s just like God.

Mid-South Corporate America professional Tonia Wynette relishing her vision as a Life Coach/Motivational Speaker

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES TONIA WYNETTE 


We who are strong must be considerate of those who are sensitive about things like this. We must not just please ourselves. (Romans 15:1 NLT)


Just recently, on a Friday morning just after 10 a. m. CST in the third week of September, Tonia Wynette had just arrived to work and was in the process of getting settled in.

Just as she was about to begin her day, she suddenly began to hear from God unlike never before.

For what it’s worth, this accomplished and resourceful Corporate America professional had no choice but to pause and lend her ear to that about which was directed toward her.

DESTINY STEPS UNFOLDING — A native of Piperton — a rural town that is housed in Fayette County, Tennessee and is comprised of roughly 1,445 residents, according to the latest U. S, census — Tonia Wynette announced recently her strategic plans to carry out her long-awaited vision as a Life Coach/Motivational Speaker.

“With obstacles comes progress,” a dear friend told Wynette during a phone conversation as she tuned in with pure wonderment.

And just like that, Wynette essentially was introduced to the purpose for which God created, was officially introduced to a lofty, God-mandated assignment she sensed would ultimately come to fruition at some point in time.

As it turned out, that point in time is now.

“I’ve always been a nurturer…a bit selfless. I love making others feel good,” Wynette told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “It breaks my heart when I hear people talk down on themselves. If I see sadness in your eyes, I feel obligated to help you to see that there’s something to be grateful for, something to smile about.”

It is due in large part to Wynette’s bend-but-don’t-break faith, coupled with her fervent desire to esteem others highly than herself, that she is thoroughly convinced she’s destined to tackle and embrace yet another awe-inspiring venture at this stage in her life.  

A native of Piperton who grew up as a P. K. (widely known as a Preacher’s Kid) — a rural town that is housed in Fayette County, Tennessee and is comprised of roughly 1,445 residents, according to the latest U. S, census — Wynette announced recently her strategic plans to carry out her long-awaited vision as a Life Coach/Motivational Speaker.

For Wynette, 39, it is an endeavor that essentially had been in the works for some time. Now she’s persuaded the time has come to exercise her faith because, after all, faith without works is dead.

FAITH ON TRIAL — For Wynette, 39, it is an endeavor that essentially had been in the works for some time. Now she’s persuaded the time has come to exercise her faith because, after all, faith without works is dead.

“(I aspire to) help uplift and build others, to create an atmosphere where you can come and be yourself. “(I want to) to help you become comfortable with being who you are, to offer a safe place to show your vulnerabilities, and to do all within my power to help rid you of all of the hurt, pain, resentment, uncertainty, low self-esteem, etc., that holds you back and keeps you from being the person God intended you to be.” — Tonia Wynette 


If anyone can greatly attest to all sorts of spiritual roadblocks, Wynette undoubtedly can. In fact, given the awesome assignment to which she has been introduced, she doesn’t seem to mind sharing before the world her assortment of past hurdles and obstacles, these seemingly discomforting occurrences that have molded and developed and positioned her to possess the best that God had in store from her from the outset.

SHE’S STILL STANDING — It is due in large part to Wynette’s bend-but-don’t-break faith, coupled with her fervent desire to esteem others highly than herself, that she is thoroughly convinced she’s destined to tackle and embrace yet another awe-inspiring venture at this stage in her life.

“Being a person who’s experienced physical, emotional, verbal and financial abuse, a person who was once shunned for being who I truly am — that (actually) was hurt, anger, and resentment fueled me — but after much prayer and support from those closest to me, love, peace, and forgiveness has sustained me,” Wynette said. “I’ve been encouraging and building individuals that I see or feel are in need of it from as early as high school. Professionally, I’m just starting.”

What better time to start than now, especially considering she’s thoroughly convinced that it was God Who was working diligently behind the scenes on her behalf all along?

“This is something God has put on my heart and in my heart, but if I must give credit to any human being, it’d have to be my father, Pastor Tommie L. Watkins,” Wynette said. “He is the most selfless person I know. He’s spent his years, from as early as I remember, leading, helping, encouraging, praying for and building others up.”

Interestingly and to her credit, Wynette seemed destined not only walk in the footsteps of her father but, most importantly, to help advance the kingdom with God, her Helper, leading the way.

“There are people going to their graves everyday with gifts that have yet to be utilized, hearts filled with love that they were too afraid to give,” Wynette said. “There are hurt people, broken people, depressed people, people who can’t and don’t realize their worth simply because of abuse, depression, and low self-esteem. This shouldn’t be.

THE PROVERBS 31 FACTOR — Interestingly and to her credit, Wynette seemed destined not only walk in the footsteps of her father but, most importantly, to help advance the kingdom with God, her Helper, leading the way.

“God has a purpose for your life,” Wynette continued. “Gifts created just for you. I want people to see it. There are no nobodies on this earth. God created everybody to be somebody special. I just want to be one of the tools He uses to get that message across for as far as He allows my voice and physical presence to reach.”

And just like that, she’s effectively embracing the purpose for which God created, effectively embracing a lofty, God-mandated assignment she sensed would ultimately come to fruition at some point in time.

As it turned out, that point in time is now.

Texas author Gina McGowan Cade enjoying an increase in sales, global exposure since book’s release

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES GINA MCGOWAN CADE


DALLAS — To make a long story short…

“This book still blesses me,” Gina McGowan Cade is swift to acknowledge when recalling just how much God has steadfastly used her for His glory through her spirited and empowering written document entitled, “Iron Sharpens Iron: Encouragement for the Soul.”

Since her book’s much-anticipated release nearly three years ago, McGowan Cade has enjoyed a considerable amount of success, most notably through increased sales and enhanced exposure through the mainstream media.

An inspiring and spiritually-driven book in which McGowan Cade’s featured message is rather direct and forthright — to remind the people of God that God is always with us — “Iron Sharpens Iron: Encouragement for the Soul” is steadily having a massive and vital impact throughout the Body of Christ, particularly for those whom, well, are longing for some much-needed encouragement.

ENCOURAGEMENT FOR THE WORLD — A native of Dallas, Gina McGowan Cade is the author of “Iron Sharpens Iron: Encouragement for the Soul,” an inspiring, tear-jerking, spiritually confirming book in where Cade’s featured message is rather direct and forthright — to remind the people of God that God is always with us.

“Since my last story, my book sales took off,” McGowan Cade, a native of Dallas, told Making Headline News this week. “I am selling many books at book signings and online through Amazon as well. Since the (last MHN) story, the readers were literally introduced to Gina McGowan Cade. Many people would see me, were Facebook friends with me, but did not know me as a person. They just saw the image.”

Now that “Iron Sharpens Iron: Encouragement for the Soul” has evolved into a constant success and spiritual hub for those seeking a godly sense of direction, it’s safe to assume that McGowan Cade isn’t just an ordinary social media friend to many with whom she crosses paths.

CONSIDER THE SOURCE — An inspiring and spiritually-driven book in which McGowan Cade’s featured message is rather direct and forthright — to remind the people of God that God is always with us — “Iron Sharpens Iron: Encouragement for the Soul” is steadily having a massive and vital impact throughout the Body of Christ, particularly for those whom, well, are longing for some much-needed encouragement.

Fortunately for them, she has become a monumental beacon of light as an accomplished Christian author, considering her reading audience has become accustomed to witnessing her good works, all the while glorifying the Father in heaven.

“I have received many testimonials where others have been equally blessed when reading the book,” McGowan Cade said. “There is so much word between the pages of the book that has something for almost everyone. Many dilemmas, situations, and issues. Jesus cares for us all.”

Given the continuous influential impact her book is having, particularly during times that are widely regarded as perilous, it has become a foregone conclusion that McGowan Cade cares for those who are destined to draw closer to Christ.

OFF THE CHARTS — After taking direct and strategic commands from her Creator, McGowan Cade not only caught the vision and wrote it down. To her credit, she has earnestly ran with it, ran with it in such a way that a 200-plus book was produced as a result.

Because after all, iron sharpens iron.

If you didn’t know, now you know.


“After writing the book, I would go back and read some of the chapters and be wowed. But understand this isn’t bragging about me. The information for Iron Sharpens Iron Encouragement for the Soul was given to me by the Holy Spirit. — Author Gina McGowan Cade

So to make a long story short…

“If a person hasn’t heard one of my interviews or read an article, they would not know that many of times, I would be asleep and would receive a heavenly download that I would jot down or place notes in my phone,” said McGowan Cade, explaining the awe-inspiring that transpired surrounding her book. “After waking up, again I would go back to review what I wrote and I would often ask the question, ‘Wow, this came from me?’”

SEASON OF OVERFLOW — Since her book’s much-release nearly three years ago, McGowan Cade has enjoyed a considerable amount of success, most notably through sales and enhanced exposure through the mainstream media. 

Now that her initial book has caused a stir in the Body of Christ for all the right reasons, McGowan Cade has become inspired to begin writing Book No. 2.

The title: “Your Winning Season: Fear Not,” a project that is scheduled to hit the market sometime in Spring 2019, McGowan Cade said.

As for her latest book, McGowan Cade is especially giddy about the overflow of blessings that have surfaced since its release, some of which arose outside of the United States.

“I have only promoted the book physically in Texas,” McGowan Cade said. “I have had interviews with other (media outlets) that are in different states and even in Nigeria.”

Because after all, iron sharpens iron.

Shreveport’s Myoshi Thomas conquers prison life, discovers her godly purpose through her new book


MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES MYOSHI THOMAS 


For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. (Jeremiah 29:11)


Myoshi Thomas is a little less than two weeks away from the much-anticipated release of her very first book.

Judging by the continuous buzz and hoopla that have surfaced surrounding her remarkably compelling project, it would be hard-pressed to believe that Thomas’ awe-inspiring book, “Against All Odds: From The Jail Cell To Leather Chairs, My Story God’s Glory,” has yet to find its rightful place on the market.

“To be honest, it was spoken over my life many years ago and it took me about seven years to just do it,” Thomas, a native of Shreveport, Louisiana, told Making Headline News during a weekend interview. “Seven years to just step out on faith and just trust God. The number seven represent completion.”

HERE’S THE 411 — Judging by the continuous buzz and hoopla that have surfaced surrounding her remarkably compelling project, it would be hard-pressed to believe that author Myoshi Thomas’ awe-inspiring book, “Against All Odds: From The Jail Cell To Leather Chairs, My Story God’s Glory,” has yet to find its rightful place on the market.

Much to Thomas’ delight, she didn’t just complete an informative and emotionally inspiring book. Rather, she produced it in impressive fashion.

A book that will officially hit the market October 20 during a launch that will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. CST at Broadmoore Branch Library in Shreveport, Thomas’ “Against All Odds: From The Jail Cell To Leather Chairs, My Story God’s Glory” is centered mostly on what Thomas describes as the importance of one’s destiny amid hardships or, in a nutshell, the importance of getting the most out of life — thus living on the larger side of God — after having served time in prison.

In the coming weeks, Thomas will kick off her six-month national book tour that will begin with book signings in Shreveport and will include a visit to New York City October 26-27. Buyers can request presale orders, she said. 

A MUST BUY — A book that will officially hit the market October 20 during a launch that will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. CST at Broadmoore Branch Library in Shreveport, Thomas’ “Against All Odds: From The Jail Cell To Leather Chairs, My Story God’s Glory” is centered mostly on what Thomas describes as the importance of one’s destiny amid hardships or, in a nutshell, the importance of getting the most out of life — thus living on the larger side of God — after having served time in prison.

“The divine message that I am sending to the audience is that sometimes, we have to take a bold step and create our own destiny. I want others to know that there is life after prison. I decided to do what I call my dosage of C’s. I decided to Challenge myself to Change and be Consistent.” — Author Myoshi Thomas 


What it all boils down to, according to this devout woman of faith, is devising ways in the natural and spirit to reconnect with the purpose for which God created us.

“I want (my readers) to know that if they won’t give you a chance make them notice you, then you create your own lane and succeed,” Thomas said. “I want them to know that if you believe it, you will achieve it.”

But in order to achieve it, Thomas acknowledged, we must become greatly committed to keeping Christ the Focal Point of our lives, especially after God has provided for us a way of escape.

“The main thing is keeping the Main Thing — Jesus,” Thomas said.  “To just do it and, if it is in alignment with what God has for you, get ready, get ready, because God will bring it to pass. (This book will teach us how to) change our mindset and go after what others say we can’t or won’t have. If I would have listened to what they were saying to and about me, I wouldn’t be where I am today.”

For Thomas, arguably her grandest battle and obstacle when she was released from prison was herself. In other words, she had admittedly found it difficult to come to grips with the fact that she — of all people — had once settled for room and board within the walls of a jail cell.

But God…

“I didn’t know how my story impacted others until I started sharing my story,” said Thomas, speaking as if to imply that confidence and self-esteem are at all-time highs. “For a long time, I used to be ashamed of myself and the fact that I spent time in prison until one of my coaches, a mentor and midwife, Kim Clayton, started inviting me to speak at her events.”

START SPREADING THE NEWS — In the coming weeks, Thomas will kick off her six-month national book tour that will begin with book signings in Shreveport and will include a visit to New York City October 26-27.

They were, as Thomas recalled, life-enhancing, empowerment events that essentially provided her with the ideal platform and scenery to open up about her past checkered life.

But God…

“From there, others started asking me to come share my story, and it was amazing to me how they were saying my purpose is to be inspiring to others and to encourage them to get out of their own way,” Thomas said. (You’ve got to) trust the process and allow God to use you. I never imagined that my life would be life-saving for others…that my story of when all odds were against me, I was the underdog.”

FROM PRISON TO THE PALACE — For Thomas, arguably her grandest battle and obstacle when she was released from prison was herself. In other words, she had admittedly found it difficult coming to grips with the fact that she — of all people — had once settled for room and board within the walls of a jail cell.

To Thomas’ credit, because she was committed to embracing a godly life after life in prison, she’s appreciative of the notion that unlike never before, God is steadfastly using her for His glory.

Because, after all, we serve a God Who finds great pleasure in exalting and elevating underdogs.

“I am that light and hope for ex-felons who think they can’t get a college degree, own successful business, or always look down upon because of past mistakes,” Thomas said. “The reason I wrote this book is to encourage, equip, and empower females, to let them know that our past does not define us, to use the bricks that are thrown at us to build our pathway…to know that no matter how many ‘No’s’ comes our way, a ‘Yes’ is in the making.”

Yes! Who wouldn’t serve a God like that!
