Georgia author Glenda Rena’s newly-produced book recalls her having overcome domestic violence


“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 NIV)


WOMAN THOU ART LOOSED

HARVEST SEASON — A native of Americus, Georgia-based, Glenda Rena (Ingram) is an author and devout woman of faith, who had become greatly inspired to assemble an informative, awe-inspiring book that recalls her assortment of life-changing testimonies and experiences surrounding domestic violence.

DALLAS — Glenda Rena can greatly attest to the notion that she’s been called a number of things.

“Overcomer” ranks near the very top of the list — if not the top.

To grasp a thorough understanding of why Glenda Rena has been appropriately deemed an overcomer, look no further than the downtrodden, disastrous, seemingly insurmountable season of her life, during which she had to press and navigate her way through the dreaded nightmare that is domestic violence.
For Glenda Rena — whose full name is Glenda Rena’ Ingram — it wasn’t merely a figurative nightmare that swiftly prompted her to awaken out of her sleep.

This was an authentic, gruesome nightmare, mind you, one that essentially caused her to question her very existence, one that, much to her delight, eventually fueled her desire to draw closer to God Almighty.

So much, in fact, that this is Americus, Georgia-based author and devout woman of faith had become greatly inspired to assemble an informative, awe-inspiring book that recalls her assortment of life-changing testimonies and experiences surrounding domestic violence.

To grasp a thorough understanding of why Glenda Rena has been appropriately deemed an overcomer, look no further than the downtrodden, disastrous, seemingly insurmountable season of her life, during which she had to press and navigate her way through the dreaded nightmare that is domestic violence.

“I chose to produce this book, because there are so many women living in domestic violence situations that think they are alone and who are losing their lives to this matter,” Glenda Rena told Making Headline News this week. “My book is to encourage them to know their self-worth. It’s to help them understand why self-love is the best love.”

The book to which Glenda Rena is alluding is her newly-produced written work entitled, “From Overtaken to Overcomer.”

A book she began constructing some time in 2016 and needed somewhere in the neighborhood of two years to assemble, Glenda Rena’s “From Overtaken to Overcomer” depicts the life of what this writer describes as a troubled young girl, whose childhood trauma shifts into a whirlwind of chaos, thus giving way to her being overtaken by a tumultuous firestorm that is domestic violence.

“I chose to produce this book, because there are so many women living in domestic violence situations that think they are alone and who are losing their lives to this matter,” Glenda Rena told Making Headline News this week. “My book is to encourage them to know their self-worth. It’s to help them understand why self-love is the best love.”

Consequently, that such a chaotic season had essentially resulted in this youngster being saddled by low self-esteem, this writer appropriately recalls how she managed to outlast what she vividly labels her “overbearing afflictions.”

In a nutshell, she didn’t shy away from the notion that even while enduring arguably the darkest season of her young life, even when her faith had been placed on trial unlike never before, God had ultimately come to her rescue, having spiritually cross-examined her from harm’s way, as only He could.

Now that she’s been blessed to ceremoniously make her authorship debut, Glenda Rena is especially grateful of the fact that even in the midst of her season in the wilderness, she was empowered spiritually to hasten to God’s throne, a place where she had ultimately found and possessed the breakthrough she so desperately sought.

GOD’S LEADING LADY 

A MUST READ — A book she began constructing some time in 2016 and needed somewhere in the neighborhood of two years to assemble, Glenda Rena’s “From Overtaken to Overcomer” depicts the life of what this writer describes as a troubled young girl, whose childhood trauma shifts into a whirlwind of chaos, thus giving way to her being overtaken by a tumultuous firestorm that is domestic violence.

“The divine message is that once you begin to understand who you are, then no one will be able to come into your life to disrespect you, cause harm to you, or you won’t settle for just anyone and anything as mentioned in Ephesians 2:10,” Glenda Rena explained. “You will know and understand that you are God’s masterpiece. It will also show how having low self-esteem will cause you to make bad decisions and could possibly cause you your life by just settling.”


To her credit, Glenda Rena is extremely grateful in that God had strategically set her aside for His use, which, in turn, has greatly enabled her to produce a book that’s comprised of a great deal of transparency.

GOD’S SECRET PLACE — Now that she’s been blessed to ceremoniously make her authorship debut, Glenda Rena is especially grateful of the fact that even in the midst of her season in the wilderness, she was empowered spiritually to hasten to His throne, a place where she had ultimately found and possessed the breakthrough she so desperately sought.

“Being a victim of domestic violence, I encountered low self-esteem, depression, and had suicidal thoughts,” said Glenda Rena, adding that there are plans in the foreseeable future to assemble a 31-day devotional that will center largely on the empowering women. “This is where my one-day retreats come into play. We empower, uplift, and inspire women to become whole, healed, and free.”

Well said by this resilient woman of faith, one who can greatly attest to the notion that she’s been called a number of things.

“Overcomer” ranks near the very top of the list — if not tops.

Dallas/Fort Worth entrepreneur Delissia D. Witt making much noise as one of area’s finest tax preparers

ARLINGTON’S FINEST 

DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS — A native of Arlington, Texas, Delissia D. Witt is a longtime Tax Preparer Trainer and Certified Notary for Tax Nation LLC.

ARLINGTON, Texas — For Delissia D. Witt, time is extremely precious to her.

That is why she’s become greatly empowered to make the most of it.

Every. Single. Day.

“I now pursue my dream of owning my own time,” Witt told Making Headline News this week. “And I’m a full time businesswoman with experience, knowledge…a down-to-earth businesswoman with a big personality.”

For what it’s worth, it is due in large part to Witt’s larger-than-life personality, coupled with her keen resourcefulness that have catapulted her to her divine purpose as a progressive, thriving businesswoman.

Located at 835 NE Green Oaks Boulevard in Arlington, Tax Nation boasts a staff that is dedicated to providing excellent customer service, being knowledgeable of tax laws, and, most importantly, serving its respective community.

For Witt, whose entrepreneurship expertise spans more than three decades — she initially adopted the business concept in junior high school, she recalls — it’s safe to assume that she had been destined to go into business for herself.

For starters, Witt’s mother for years owned a licensed in-home daycare venture, which afforded her the golden opportunity to gain some hands on experience as a young businesswoman.

“I handled her clients, paid employees, collected money from parents, and had a curriculum for the children,” Witt recalled.

As it turned out, such a solid work ethic continued well into her high school years.

LOOK AT HER NOW — Having recaptured the competitive drive to thrive and flourish as entrepreneur, Witt would be the first to admit that she has no time to waste on things that aren’t adding any value to her God-given purpose.

“While in high school, I was one of the leaders who started a step team and made it apart of the curriculum,” Witt explained. “We were the first black step team at Martin High School. After high school, I worked full time at an insurance company and went to Tarrant County Community College, (where) I was doing auditions for plays.”

A notable resume that also includes being a contestant in the Miss Black Texas pageant — she actually won the talent portion, largely because of her immeasurable acting skills — Witt eventually would become a founding member of the Beta Phi Chi Sorority/Fraternity that was spearheaded by Dennis Dotson.

Interestingly, she had become a fixture in the “What Should A Sista Do?” stage play.

For Witt, whose entrepreneurship expertise spans more than three decades — she initially adopted the business concept in junior high school, she recalls — it’s safe to assume that she had been destined to go into business for herself.

All things considered, Witt’s wealth of experience as a successful businesswoman has benefited her mightily throughout the years.

And, while taking questions from the media this week, Witt didn’t hesitate to emphasize that as a longtime professional tax preparer who boasts immeasurable success, she’s destined to make her presence felt in her native establishment of Arlington.

Never mind that a rash of stumbling blocks had essentially given way to her enduring an unlikely hiatus from her business.

“After a divorce, I let my business go after five years and I got back into the corporate world and went to school for taxes,” Witt said.


MRS. WITT IS LIT 

And, the rest, as they say, was history.

Having recaptured the competitive drive to thrive and flourish as entrepreneur, Witt would be the first to admit that she has no time to waste on things that aren’t adding any value to her God-given purpose.

“I inspire others by sharing my abusive experience with them and how God brought me out,” Witt said. “Being a business partner of Tax Nation has taught me even more in business. I want to educate all my clients to ensure them of their tax situation.”

Thanks in large part to her remarkable body of work in her profession, Witt will be the afforded the golden opportunity to enhance and promote her brand in the coming months when she attends an IRS conference this summer.

SHE ISN’T DONE YET — Thanks in large part to her remarkable body of work in her profession, Witt will be the afforded the golden opportunity to enhance and promote her brand in the coming months when she attends an IRS conference this summer.

Having been partnered with Tax Nation for the past five years, Witt has ventured off and started Divine Business Services, which customarily allows her to serve clients by aiding them to keep their business-related goals and ambitions intact.

“Out of my trials and tribulations I’ve been through, I’ve learned from them and turned them into a business and a way to help this upcoming generation,” Witt said.

She has no time to waste.

Every. Single. Day.

Carolina entrepreneur Alisha B. Allen deemed a ‘woman of many hats’ as CEO of ABA Enterprises


She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens; She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard;  She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms; She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night; She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff; She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. (Proverbs 31: 15-20 KJV) 


For the record, Alisha B. Allen could be what one would appropriately describe as a serial entrepreneur.

Or perhaps a businesswoman of many hats.

Or perhaps…
On second thought, perhaps she could tell it best.
“Multi-business owner,” Allen told Making Headline News this week.

THE LORD’S DOING

DESTINY STEPS — Armed with a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Purdue University, North Carolina entrepreneur Alisha Allen oversee an assortment of business ventures, as Founder and CEO of ABA Enterprises.

Indeed she is. And, to her distinctly unique credit, she’s doing a masterful job of juggling multiple endeavors, all the while walking in her divine purpose in the process.

Armed with a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Purdue University, Allen oversees an assortment of business ventures as Founder and CEO of ABA Enterprises.

Based in her native establishment of Monroe, North Carolina, Allen is a fixture for a credit resolution company that centers largely on consumer credit education by offering financial workshops, as well as communication on how to increase credit scores, budgeting, and other financial literacy education.

IN HIGH PLACES — To her credit, it seems that Allen’s wealth of entrepreneurship experience has been recognized and applauded in various places around the country, most notably Albuquerque, New Mexico, St. Louis, Florence, South Carolina, Dallas, Charlotte, as well as the North Carolina cities of Monroe, Wadesboro, and Albemarle..

In addition, she is the mastermind of Alisha Allen Realty, whereby she serves as a licensed real estate broker. Her chief responsibilities include — but aren’t limited to — helping individuals sell, buy, or invest in real estate.

And there is “Wake Up & Win,” which Allen’s thriving, progressive ministry that is centered mostly on encompasses financial literacy, home ownership, and business concepts with inspiration by way of speaking engagements, webinars, and church or civic organization events.

In essence, Allen assumes the role as an inspirational speaker through this endeavor.

WHO IS ALISHA ALLEN?

A graduate of Monroe (North Carolina) High School, who’s currently enrolled in Apex School of Theology, where she’s pursuing Master of Divinity, Allen acknowledged that it is due in large part to her life’s competitive drive that has greatly empowered her to gain the essential insight needed to make her dreams a reality.

“I learned to make the woman I was yesterday my biggest competition and I always put a 150 percent effort toward defeating and beating her each and every day,” Allen said. “(What I love most about my businesses is) the freedom to allow God to be CEO and understanding He only entrust the manifestation of what people see into my care. God trust me to run His business ethically, with integrity, and with a spirit of excellence.”

Allen is an accomplished author, having assembled one book (True Credit Restoration Journal) and two journals (30 Day Money Journal and ABA Enterprises Notary Journal) with a second book release scheduled for May 2019.

 

“(My mission is) to do my part in building stronger individuals, families, and communities so that my work, purpose, and assignment here on earth are consistently being completed,” Allen said.

As for those who have contributed mightily to her sustained success, Allen said, “(I salute) those whom I consider my inner circle and those on the other end of the spectrum those that worked endlessly to block, stop or impede on my success.”

A business-related repertoire that spans more than two decades, Allen will be afforded the golden opportunity to promote her brands during public appearances in in nearby Charlotte April 13 and May 4.

Interestingly, she’s a licensed minister, a certified credit consultant, a certified notary public instructor, and is an ambassador in Monroe and the surrounding areas as a community activist, whereby she facilitates fundraising.

“I believe wholeheartedly in releasing positive energy, and whatever you release is also what I will receive,” said Allen, explaining why it’s important to esteem others highly than herself daily. “I also believe in the power to (overcome) evil with good, so I strive to do good to all men, for you never know which man plots evil against you.”

Well said by a woman, who could be what one would appropriately describe as a serial entrepreneur.

Or perhaps a businesswoman of many hats.

Or perhaps…

On second thought, she’s already said it best.

Letitia Scott Jackson’s DFW-based Keeping Families Connected nonprofit organization becoming a national fixture


“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for Me.” (Matthew 25:40 NIV) 


DALLAS — Letitia Scott Jackson took to the airwaves over the weekend for all the right reasons.

Appearing on Dallas/Fort Worth’s 97.9 The Beat, Scott Jackson wasted little time offering some rather profound, spirited words of encouragement to the station’s thousands of listeners across the Metroplex.

ALL IN THE FAMILY 

WELCOME TO YOUR NEW SEASON — A Dallas/Fort Worth-based non-profit organization that Leititia Scott Jackson erected approximately four years ago, the strategic mission of Keeping Families Connected is centered in large part on enriching the lives of young people, most notably through events, as well as by way of providing educational resources, mentoring, and counseling services.
Said Scott Jackson in a rather forthright suggestion. “If you woke up this morning and didn’t thank God for waking you up, you are out of order.”
To grasp a thorough concept of why the opportunistic Scott Jackson deems it essential to embrace virtually every opportunity that’s afforded to her, look no further than how God has gone about moving on her behalf during a time when it seemed countless of others had written her off.

Wrongfully convicted only to wound up emerging victorious during her case that unfolded in the Texas Fifth Circuit Courts, Scott Jackson had become greatly inspired to establish Keeping Families Connected.

A DFW-based nonprofit organization that Scott Jackson erected approximately four years ago, the strategic mission of Keeping Families Connected is centered in large part on enriching the lives of young people, most notably through events, as well as by way of providing educational resources, mentoring, and counseling services.

“We believe that family matters most,” said a spokesperson for this thriving, flourishing nonprofit organization in a detailed overview at https://www.keepingfamilyconnected.org/.

A native of Houston who was raised in Shreveport, Louisiana, Scott Jackson is thoroughly convinced that her organization is steadily becoming a fixture throughout the region but, most importantly, she’s convinced it aligns solely with the purpose for which she was created.

DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS — Appearing on Dallas/Fort Worth’s 97.9 The Beat over the weekend, Scott Jackson wasted little time offering some rather profound words of encouragement to the station’s thousands of listeners across the Metroplex.

“My mission is for Keeping Families Connected to become a household name worldwide and eventually be able to provide free prison transportation in other states as the need is so great,” Scott Jackson told Making Headline News this week.

In order to better aid and promote her organization — particularly on national platforms — Scott Jackson has announced that she and her staff  will be launching a Keeping Families mobile app, which is scheduled to go into effect as early as June 1, 2019 during its Third Annual Creations of Fashion For A Cause Runway Show.

This yearly event, Scott Jackson said, is designed for children from various walks of life, particularly teens and young adults from Keeping Families Connected, during which they will participate in modeling, as well as meet and interact with professional models.

For Scott Jackson, the startup of her organization comes amid arguably the darkest chapter of her life.

“I couldn’t see my kids, because they were left with caregivers, who couldn’t afford to bring them to see them,” said Scott Jackson, recalling the tumultuous developments that fueled her desire to establish her nonprofit. “My daughters were in Louisiana and I was in Texas.”

Still, after the dust had ultimately settled and Scott Jackson had emerged victorious by winning her case, it wasn’t long thereafter that God had emphatically showed her why He had entrusted her to endure, yet conquer so much heartache and pain, both of which she emphatically outlasted.

Look at her today, walking fervently in her purpose as an accomplished businesswoman, who’s also widely known as a published author, public speaker, musician, and humanitarian.

To her credit, she birthed Keeping Families Connected out of “a personal desire,” one that would enable her to customarily make meaningful contributions to the lives of those who are incarcerated while being separated an extended period time from family members.

MAKING MUCH NOISE — Interestingly and to her credit, Scott Jackson’s Keeping Families Connected is, by all accounts, an effective institution, considering it’s also committed to rebuilding families and fostering life skills in youth and young adults from broken homes, Scott Jackson emphasized.

“Ever since (she was wrongfully convicted), she wants to spread the hope of redemption and connection one interaction, a letter to an inmate, and one prison visit at a time,” said a spokesperson for Scoot Jackson’s organization. “She also has a passion for speaking to youth and young adults about making the best choices now based on her own past experiences. She has been blessed to build several businesses and mentor students and members of her church to define their own success.”

“My mission is for Keeping Families Connected to become a household name worldwide and eventually be able to provide free prison transportation in other states as the need is so great,” Scott Jackson told Making Headline News this week.

Interestingly and to her credit, Scott Jackson’s Keeping Families Connected is, by all accounts, an effective institution, considering it’s also committed to rebuilding families and fostering life skills in youth and young adults from broken homes, she emphasized.

“For four years, we have been providing free breakfast, lunch, and transportation to prison facilities throughout the state of Texas for (people), especially kids that have incarcerated parents and individuals that have incarcerated loved ones,” Scott Jackson said.

Talk about being in total alignment with the purpose for which she was created.


COMING FULL CIRCLE 

SEASON OF THE REBIRTH — To her credit, Scott Jackson birthed Keeping Families Connected out of “a personal desire,” one that would enable her to customarily make meaningful contributions to the lives of those who are incarcerated while being separated an extended period time from family members.

“My life’s trials and tribulations set me up for this journey,” Scott said. “I lost my mom, my dad, and my only son to death, and I really feel that God was removing all of my leaning posts so that I could find my connection and my calling in life and, more so, to help me maximize my potential.”

To her credit, she’s doing just that.

And, what’s remarkably astounding is that she’s nowhere out of order.

Not by a long shot.

Boston preacher Bishop Ronald S. Hobson, Sr. advancing the kingdom mightily as leader of The Reconstruction Church


Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine. (1 Timothy 5:17 KJV)


DALLAS — Just a few days ago, Dr. Ronald S Hobson, Sr. found himself reminiscing, among other things, about how his family had gone about making peace with Jesus Christ.

Without question, it was arguably the best discovery of his young life.

As Dr. Hobson — a Boston-area pastor who’s widely known as Bishop Hobson — explained, it all unfolded sometime after the tragic death of grandmother, during which his family consequently attended the historic Jefferson Temple Church of God In Christ in nearby North Bellport, New York.
Ironically, Bishop Hobson’s mother, Geraldine Scott, had accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, thus setting off what apparently was a spiritual domino effect throughout the Hobson household.

ON GOD’S BATTLEFIELD 

GOD’S MIGHTY SPOKESPERSON — A ministerial calling that spans approximately three decades, Ronald S. Hobson is the Senior Pastor at The Reconstruction Church.

“It was after she accepted Christ that our journey as a family into the Christian faith began,” Bishop Hobson told Making Headline News this week.

For Bishop Hobson, witnessing his mother surrender to God proved to be defining moment, of sorts, for an accomplished preacher, whose keen reputation is such that he customarily exemplifies having a heart for people.

God’s people, to be more direct.

A ministerial calling that spans approximately three decades, Bishop Hobson is the Senior Pastor at The Reconstruction Church.

MORE ON TRC: https://thereconstructionchurch.org/

Located at 80 Pleasant Street in Brockton, Massachusetts, The Reconstruction Church has adopted a notable commitment that is centered largely on serving its community through various programs, many of which are geared toward people’s spiritual needs.

“We are not hear to judge, but to help you change the way you think about your faith,” said a spokesperson for The Reconstruction Church in a detailed introduction of this flourishing ministry at https://thereconstructionchurch.org/.

A native of North Bellport, New York — a rural town of roughly 11,545 residents, according to the latest U.S. census — it’s safe to assume that Bishop Hobson, 48, undoubtedly was birthed into ministry.

He’s also is a thriving businessman as a credible credit repair specialist.

Having always looked up to and admired his pastor, Bishop Ralph L. Jefferson — “I still admire him today,” he often says — it was due in large part to his spiritual father’s unorthodox style of preaching, coupled with what Bishop Hobson describes as his “tenacity in preaching The Word” that greatly fueled his desire to want to follow in his footsteps.

PROMOTED BY GOD — Dr. Hobson was consecrated in December 2003 to the Office of Bishopric through the laying on of hands of His Eminence W. O. Kinnings in nearby Philadelphia before being reaffirmed and dually consecrated to the Office of Bishopric and Presiding Prelate of Preachers United Fellowship in August 2006 by the Episcopal Board of Bishops of Alpha & Omega Ministries, Bishop Lee A. Davis (California).

Despite the notion that being raised with eight brothers and sisters were both “amazing and discouraging” at times, Bishop Hobson is especially appreciative of the fact this his mother had raised her children to the best way she knew how, though he acknowledged that growing up in what he deems “an improvised community” had its share of challenges.

“Like any other inner-city, I was introduced to many vises and avenues that were not ideal and economically friendly,” Bishop Hobson recalls. “I had to do what I had to do to survive.”

Regardless, amongst the notable factors with which this young preacher had come to grips was that only what he does for Christ will last. So realistically, there was no running from the calling and purpose for which he was created.

MOM KNOWS BEST — For Bishop Hobson, witnessing his mother surrender to God proved to be defining moment, of sorts, for an accomplished preacher whose keen reputation is such that he customarily exemplifies having a heart for people. God’s people, to be more direct.

“The amazing part of everything was that the church became my outlet and focus,” Bishop Hobson explained. “The more I attended, the more comfortable I grew to accept this Jesus my pastor so eloquently shared through his preaching and teachings. The church became my focal point for change. My pastor took the time to teach me all he could for me to become someone or something in life. He poured into me daily values and practices of clean, godly living. He wanted to ensure that I made godly decisions in life.”

All of which practically sums up why this young preacher from a rural town on Long Island has been set aside for God’s use, all the while steadily having a massive impact in advancing the kingdom for such a time as now.

Never mind that according to Bishop Hobson, the awe-inspiring events that had ultimately given way to his divine call to ministry weren’t merely easy, he often recalls.

A native of North Bellport, New York — a rural town of roughly 11,545 residents, according to the latest U.S. census, it’s safe to assume that Bishop Hobson, 48, undoubtedly was birthed into ministry.

“It was life-changing,” he typically says without hesitation.

Having officially accepted his calling to preach to gospel at the tender age of 18, this then-teenage preacher found himself standing behind a sacred desk, giving his first sermon in October 1988.

He’s been preaching ever since.

Bishop Hobson also is a thriving businessman as a credible credit repair specialist.

“Remembering the day when my pastor laid his hands on me, he shared with me a dream I had the night before,” Bishop Hobson recalled. “The Lord knew what He showed me in my dream, but my pastor’s prophetic discernment by The Spirit of God was led to share the dream. He said, ‘Son, God has called you to preach.’ After that, I hit the floor – slain in The Spirit.”

He’s been slain in The Spirit ever since.

He hasn’t looked back ever since.

Credit the fact that He’s been sold out to God ever since.

In no particularly order.

IT’S ALL GOOD — Despite the notion that being raised with eight brothers and sisters were both “amazing and discouraging” at times, Bishop Hobson is appreciative of the fact this his mother had raised her children to the best of her capabilities, though he acknowledged that growing up in what he deems “an improvised community” had its challenges. Pictured with Bishop Hobson are his sons, Ron, Jr. and Christopher.

Having become a licensed minister the same year he delivered his first sermon, Bishop Hobson was ordained and installed as a Pastor in October 2002 by Bishop Ralph L. Harmon, Milford, DE.

 

Bishop Hobson’s mother, Geraldine Scott, had accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, thus setting off what apparently was a spiritual domino effect throughout the Hobson household.

Consequently, he was consecrated in December 2003 to the Office of Bishopric through the laying on of hands of His Eminence W. O. Kinnings in nearby Philadelphia before being reaffirmed and dually consecrated to the Office of Bishopric and Presiding Prelate of Preachers United Fellowship in August 2006 by the Episcopal Board of Bishops of Alpha & Omega Ministries, Bishop Lee A. Davis (California).

Having studied at Empire State College in Buffalo, New York, Bishop Hobson enrolled at the University of Phoenix, during which his concentration was Business Administration.  Having matriculated from Encouraging Faith Theological University with honors, Bishop Hobson is an accomplished author who wrote “Who’s Your Moses?”

KEEP ON KEEPIN’ ON — Having officially accepted his calling to preach to gospel at the tender age of 18, this then-teenage preacher found himself standing behind a sacred desk, giving his first sermon in October 1988.

“Accepting what God allowed was my new momentum and vision focus,” Bishop Hobson said of his well-publicized ministerial career. “I felt secure in knowing Chrissy was in the safest arms. I knew I had to continue to preach the Good News. I’ve learned that through the course of healing that I have to love and not hate…press to impress Christ and live the best life I could for Him, because tomorrow is not promised to anyone, not even me.”

All things considered, that, without question, was arguably the best discovering of his young life.

Nashville businesswoman Tamica Ross’ organization helping people ‘make their dreams a reality’


Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9 NIV)


DALLAS — Just before 10 p.m. CST on Sunday, Tamica Ross took to her Facebook page, where she shared with the masses a rather spirited, blissful announcement.

Said Ross to her gallery of social media followers: Hello FB Friends and Family! I am so excited to announce my upcoming news article. I’m making headlines. Thanking God for this awesome opportunity.


WOMAN OF EXCELLENCE 

DESTINY STEPS — A native of West Tennessee — most notably the Jackson area that is housed in Madison County — Tamica Ross is the Founder and CEO of Lanese Empowerment, a Nashville-based company that is centered largely on inspiring and aiding individuals, particularly youths, as well as young adult men and women.
For Ross, a Mid-South-area businesswoman, she has every right to share of some favorable news that, much to her delight, is a pivotal reminder of just how much God is using her for His glory.
“This business was birthed by (my) own deep desires and determination to live my best life despite the challenges of growing up in an underprivileged environment, where I became a teenage mother at the age of 16 years old,” Ross, during a weekend interview with Making Headline News, said of her quest in establishing what has emerged as a credible endeavor.

WHAT ABOUT TAMICA’S ORGANIZATION? www.laneseempowerment.com

A native of West Tennessee — most notably the Jackson area that is housed in Madison County — Ross is the Founder and CEO of Lanese Empowerment, a Nashville-based company that is centered largely on inspiring and aiding individuals, particularly youths, as well as young adult men and women.

As Ross specifically acknowledged, amongst her coaching venture’s strategic objectives is to empower individuals to live their best lives and, most importantly, to make all their dreams a reality.


“Tamica is on a mission to touch over a million people by empowering them to turn fear into faith, passion into purpose, confusion into clarity, gain self-confidence, and the tools needed to take action now, one step at a time on a journey well done,” said a spokesperson for Ross’ Lanese Empowerment. “She is determined to help those with deep desires to help themselves, reach their full potential, and have fun doing it while living their best lives and making all their dreams a reality.”


For Ross, establishing her coaching organization didn’t merely come easy. Not by a long shot.

According to the Chester County High School graduate, arguably the greatest challenge she faced was attracting sustained support from people she sensed had endured similar hardships with which she once struggled.

DREAMING BIG — Interestingly and to her distinctly unique credit, Ross’ venture has come full circle, courtesy of her resiliency through life coaching, free tools and resources, speaking engagements, writing books, providing scholarship funds, summer youth programs, yearly conferences for men and women, and through D.R.E.A.M.S.

Not to be outdone, though, Ross’ thought process was such that if she would persevere long enough, she’d ultimately reap and possess and results she so desperately sought.

The rest, as they say, was history, considering she did just that.

“I refuse to be that person who was afraid to help others succeed,” Ross said. “Therefore, I have dedicated the rest of my life as a life strategist for others with the mission to empower all people, including men, women, and youths to be the best they can be and help make their dreams a reality.”

Interestingly and to her distinctly unique credit, Ross’ venture has come full circle, courtesy of her resiliency through life coaching, free tools and resources, speaking engagements, writing books, providing scholarship funds, summer youth programs, yearly conferences for men and women, and through D.R.E.A.M.S.

HARVEST SEASON UNFOLDING

An academy that’s comprised of a six week training program D.R.E.A.M.S. is designed to walk people through the steps needed to make any dream a reality and live their best lives one day at a time, Ross emphasized.

Having resided in Nashville for the past decade-and-a-half, Ross holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Organizational Leadership and Communication from Bethel University in McKenzie, Tennessee.

Consequently, she earned a Master’s in Organizational Management from Nashville’s Belmont University.

As for her coaching organization, she said such inspiration arose from the wide counsel of her mother, whom she says was “strong enough” to beat a drug addiction.

According to the Chester County High School graduate, arguably the biggest challenge she faced was attracting sustained support from people she sensed had endured similar hardships with which she once struggled.

“My grandmother and stepfather have always seen the very best in me,” said Ross, paying homage to others to have paved the way to her success. “My godfather, who has always been a transformational leader in my life, my godmother, who taught me how to love God with all my heart, my children, whom I am dedicated to showing how to live your best life, and some wonderful mentors and leaders in the industry such as Tony Robbins, Valerie Burton, and even Oprah (Winfrey)…as an African American successful women, who started from the bottom and now look at what she has become.”

Given the immeasurable strides Ross has made since the startup of Lanese Empowerment, it’s safe to assume her best and brightest days are well ahead of her — days that will include, among other things, the forthcoming release of her starting lineup of books.

“She is looking forward to releasing her new book series,” said a spokesperson for Ross’ organization.

All things considered, Ross is giddy in that she can finally profess she’s walking fervently in her God-ordained purpose.

Having resided in Nashville for the past decade-and-a-half, Ross holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Organizational Leadership and Communication from Bethel University in McKenzie, Tennessee. Consequently, she earned a Master’s in Organizational Management from Nashville’s Belmont University.

“I was told when I started this business that I needed to define a niche,” Ross said. “Well I did and that’s all people who have the desire and passion to live an extraordinary life despite the challenges of bad credit, debt, failed marriages, loss of a job, low self-esteem, terrible childhood, underprivileged environments, or lack of joy in their hearts, confusion about their path in life, bad grades, teenage pregnancy, drug addiction, and even those who need clarity on their career paths.

“God didn’t put me on this earth to help everyone, because I know there are some they I may not be able to reach. However, there are more that I can reach, and I am looking forward to giving it all I got.”

That, to her credit, is worthy of making headlines.

San Antonio’s Aunjane ”AJ” Johnson defying odds, making major moves as young entrepreneur


I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (Philippians 4:13 KJV)


GOD’S FAITH STEPPER 

ALA-MO SUCCESS — A native of San Antonio, Aunjane ”AJ” Johnson is a full-time entrepreneur as the owner and CEO of Destination Prosperity Multiservice Company, LLC, which specializes in offering business startup coaching, particularly through what Johnson describes as customized kits and power hours based specifically on their growth and industry, she told Making Headline News this week.

DALLAS — Although it might be widely considered rather clichéish, Aunjane ”AJ” Johnson would be the first to tell to that age ain’t nothing but a number.

Consider, for instance, the fact that Johnson is just 24 years of age.

Still, for someone who’s roughly five months away from witnessing her 25th birthday, Johnson is steadily devising ways to function mightily in her element, most notably as a young entrepreneur.

WHAT ABOUT “AJ’s BUSINESS? https://www.destinationprosperityllc.net/

COVERED BY ANGELS — All things considered, Johnson’s immeasurable success as a young businesswoman has emerged amid her share of hardships, a trend that, to her credit, has contributed mightily to her quest to go after all her critics and naysayers sensed she couldn’t have. After experiencing what she describes as “a very traumatic three years of my life,” Johnson recalls like yesterday when, truth be told, she was practically homeless, living out of a laundry basket or, as she vividly explains, a section of closet space and with two drawers, to be more technical.

In addition, Johnson’s venture customarily offers financial literacy coaching and education services as a strategic way to greatly aid individuals, especially those who often struggle with the management of their personal finances through monthly budgeting, savings plans, and workshops along with affordable credit consulting.

A business venture that went full throttle some two-and-a-half years ago, Johnson is thoroughly convinced that Destination Prosperity Multiservice Company, LLC’s best and brightest days are well ahead of it.


“I like educating, motivating, and assisting entrepreneurs and the community to learn how to build something of their own, manage their finances, and build their credit ethically and legally,” said Johnson, who rising business accommodates persons ranging in ages 13-and-up or, as she specifically acknowledges, “middle school through college students and adults up to age 40.”

That, she said, is when reality has finally set in, considering even as a youngster, she knew full well that she was fearfully and wonderfully made in God, she knew full well that there’s got to be more to life than what was placed in front of her.

But God…

“I made a decision that I would create a better life for (my child),” Johnson said. “I decided we would be on housing for a bit until I finished college, but during that time, I will start planning my company and securing our future by building a business so I can spend time with my baby girl after being raised as a single mother, who had dreams but worked constantly.”

DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS — For someone who’s a roughly five months from witnessing her 25th birthday, Johnson is steadily devising ways to function mightily in her element, most notably as a young entrepreneur.

To her credit, coupled with what seemed to be a renewed sense of unshakable faith, Johnson stayed the course, stayed true to herself and, most importantly, trusted the process until she reaped the favorable results she so desperate sought.

In that order.

After graduating from Douglas  San Antonio’s Macarthur High School at 17 years of age, Johnson enrolled in the Cosmetology Program at Milan Institute, then finished a couple years later at Ogle School Of Hair, Skin and Nails.

Interestingly, she’s currently studying Accounting at Colorado Technical University and has just three sessions left to complete her undergraduate degree requirements.


WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS…

As if these achievements aren’t enough to cap off a dramatic comeback story, Johnson announced that she’s scheduled to make a few podcast appearances in the foreseeable future and will be teaching a virtual class teaching April 2 entitled, “How to Build An Agency.”

As for her rising company, Johnson said, “My personal mission is to build and educate the community. I want people to stop sitting on their dreams and go for it.”

Because, as she puts it forthright, life is precious, yet fragile, meaning we’ve only got one shot at this thing.

So it’s either hit or miss.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — After graduating from Douglas  San Antonio’s Macarthur High School at 17 years of age, Johnson enrolled in the Cosmetology Program at Milan Institute, then finished a couple years later at Ogle School Of Hair, Skin and Nails. Interestingly, she’s currently studying Accounting at Colorado Technical University and has just three sessions left to complete her undergraduate degree requirements.

“We only get one life,” said Johnson, “and I want anyone I’m blessed to reach to live their best life despite life’s challenges.”

Well said by this young, flourishing businesswoman whom, even at 24 years of age, knows a thing or two about defying some of life’s greatest challenges.

Accomplished Atlanta author Dr. Carolyn Stephens spearheads a book that figures to change a generation


Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. (Romans 8:37 KJV)


GOD’S LEADING LADY 

WELCOME TO YOUR NEW SEASON — An accomplished Atlanta-area author and businesswoman, Dr. Carolyn Stephens is responsible for forwarding the book entitled, “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2,” her much-anticipated sophomore edition that is is widely known as “One Voice” — a project that addresses a variety of pertinent topics, most notably surviving divorce, sexual and physical abuse, broken identity, and mental illness, among other subjects.

DALLAS — Dr. Carolyn Stephens has something she needs to get off of her chest.

So pay attention.

“The black woman has been stereotypically criticized, marginalized, and sexualized for decades, and most of the negative connotations are a misunderstanding or a traditional belief system that has continued to demean the women of our culture,” Dr. Stephens, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, explain in detail the developments that fueled her desire to write an awe-inspiring book.

It is, by all accounts, due in large part to this assortment of stereotypes that Dr. Stephens deemed it absolutely essential to compose a book that figures to enrich and impact a generation for years to come.

An accomplished Atlanta-area author and businesswoman, Dr. Stephens is responsible for forwarding the book entitled, “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2,” her much-anticipated sophomore edition that is is widely known as “One Voice” — a project that addresses a variety of pertinent topics, most notably surviving divorce, sexual and physical abuse, broken identity, and mental illness, among other subjects.


THE PROVERBS 31 FACTOR 

“I decided to construct a book project that would allow black women to have a voice and vocalize their obstacles, processes, and victories,” Dr. Stephens said.

As this gifted author-turned-businesswoman explained, her primary objective for composing a second edition of “I Am A Black Woman” was centered largely on uniting a dozen black women from various walks of life, all of whom demonstrate the courage to share a common goal and vision as a strategic way to create healing, thus establish a sense of unity within their respective community.

ON ONE ACCORD — More than anything, Dr. Stephens acknowledged, she’s especially appreciative to the gallery of African-American authors who collectively bought into her massive vision to construct a book that figures to impact a generation and will be promoted in a number of establishments around the country, most notably New York, Alabama, Warner Robins, Georgia, Detroit, as well as Florida, Texas, and Jamaica.

“We have chosen to execute this book in the form of an anthology to create a level of cohesiveness between black women in order to demonstrate the results of what we call sister synergy,” said Dr. Stephens, explaining her purpose for “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2. “This compilation book project not only discloses the many challenges that black women face, such as divorce, sexual and physical violence, single parenthood, etc., but also speaks of the therapeutic resolutions necessary to bring about change.”

Interestingly, Dr. Stephens — who’s widely known also as a public speaker and a clinical therapist — disclosed a rather intriguing statistic pertaining to the struggles a slew of struggles with which countless of black women customarily endure.

SET ASIDE FOR GOD’S USE — Interestingly, Dr. Stephens — who’s widely known also as a public speaker and a clinical therapist — disclosed a rather intriguing statistics pertaining to the struggles a slew of struggles with which countless of black women customarily endure.

“Over several years of working in my practice, I discovered that 98 percent of my patient population was African-American single women, who were often- times diagnosed with dual diagnoses as a result of the traumatic experiences they have endured,” Dr. Stephens explained. “I was challenged to explore the emotional triggers and root causes that produce many of the toxic behaviors demonstrated among many black women that oftentimes cause us to stay divided.”

All things considered and to her credit, such a discovery practically sums up why Dr. Stephens thought it necessary to assemble a second edition of “I Am A Black Woman.”


“As a result of launching this project, a loving sisterhood was birthed and has now developed into a long awaited movement,” Dr. Stephens said of her forthcoming book, which is scheduled to be officially released in June. “The sisterhood of the IAABW represents the edification and affirmation of the black woman.”


More than anything, Dr. Stephens acknowledged, she’s especially appreciative to the gallery of African-American authors who collectively bought into her massive vision to construct a book that figures to impact a generation and will be promoted in a number of establishments around the country, most notably New York, Alabama, Warner Robins, Georgia, Detroit, as well as Florida, Texas, and Jamaica.

“Myself and the co-authors of IAABW would like to help support the healing process of the black family and see the revival of the black community through love, strength, and prosperity,” Dr. Stephens said.

BUT GOD — As this gifted author-turned-businesswoman explained, her primary objective for composing a second edition of “I Am A Black Woman” was centered largely on uniting a dozen black women from various walks of life, all of whom demonstrate the courage to share a common goal and vision as a strategic way to create healing, thus establish a sense of unity within their respective community.

Ironically, Dr. Stephens thought it essential to compose a book in a rather similar fashion, or one that would be centered primarily on African-American men.

Just recently, Dr. Stephens announced that she will be producing an “I Am A Black Man” book that is slated to be released in October 2019.

“The IAABW movement is continuing to grow,” Dr. Stephens said. “We are proud to announce the launching of (I Am A Black Man), thus solidifying our belief that we are a community that is strong and powerful.”

So pay attention.

Is Mid-South entrepreneur Kyjione King the pole fitness industry’s best kept secret?

 

A THING OF BEAUTY 

RAISING THE BAR — When it comes to pole fitness, Kyjione King would be the first to enlighten the masses that are a slew of life-enhancing, confidence-building benefits surrounding an ever-so-popular activity that will soon become a sport in the Olympics. King, 31, is the founder and CEO of Kiki Dance Studio LLC told Making Headline News this week.

DALLAS — Please don’t get it twisted.

When it comes to pole fitness, Kyjione King would be the first to enlighten the masses that there are a slew of life-enhancing, confidence-building benefits surrounding an ever-so-popular activity that will soon become a sport in the Olympics.

That’s not all, said King, the founder and CEO of Kiki Dance Studio LLC told Making Headline News this week.

“(This kind activity) is kid friendly,” King said.


MORE ON KIKI DANCE STUDIO LLC: https://www.kikidancestudio.com/

To grasp a thorough concept of why King’s divine purpose is connected largely to a pole fitness adventure that is steadily attracting more of a global presence, look no further than the assortment of hurdles about which she had to clear, particularly during her youth.

For years, King, 31, admittedly had struggled with low self-esteem and, as she put it forthrightly, “I definitely know how those who don’t feel as confident. I can relate.”

That certainly isn’t the case today for King, a Jonesboro, Arkansas-based businesswoman, who’s widely known also as a certified fitness group trainer through the American Sports and Fitness Association.

AIM HIGH — As King acknowledged, her rise to becoming the pole fitness industry’s best kept secret stemmed from her past struggles with getting her weight under control.

A native of Blytheville, Arkansas, King’s Kiki Dance Studio is located at 721 South Gee Street, Unit A, in Jonesboro.

As for King’s progressive, thriving business venture, Diverse Pole Fitness studio customarily offers a variety of exercises with the pole as a strategically unique way to build strength and confidence while focusing on weight loss.

“We believe that pole fitness will provide a healthier and longer life,” said King, whose experience in her selected industry spans roughly five years. “Pole fitness helps with your psychological and emotional health in reducing stress.”

Most importantly, King acknowledged, her company is committed to providing its clients with a safe and clean studio.  “Our mission is to provide a warm, supportive, and creative atmosphere to satisfy customers through core conditioning, flexibility training, and pole fitness,” King said. “Kiki Dance Studio is a place where you can feel comfortable and attractive, while increasing your self- confidence and self-esteem.”

All things considered, media pundits worldwide are starting to become knowledgeable of just how much pole fitness essentially has become a globally-acclaimed activity, not to mention a way of life for many who have come to embrace what undoubtedly is a beloved sport.

According to a report at https://www.lifehack.org/, when people hear about fitness and the health benefits of different forms of workouts, they seldom think about pole dancing as a viable option. Much like some popular Latino dances like tango, which started out in shady back alleys of poor neighborhoods only to later gain popularity across the globe, pole dancing has quickly become a very popular form of exercise and even a competitive event, according to the Life Hack report.

That’s not all.

According to the Life Hack report, not only is pole fitness a great way to embrace your inner sexiness, but it also has numerous health benefits that shouldn’t be overlooked.

King, whose Kiki Dance Studio is three years removed from having gone into operations, was especially appreciative of the fact that the mainstream media is starting to observe pole fitness for what it is: a credible and effective way to help with your psychological and emotional health in reducing stress.

“My personal mission for doing this work is to build confidence and improve the health in every woman that I encounter,” said King, whose immeasurable talents through pole fitness have been discovered in a variety of places around the countries.


“Our facility offers a variety of different classes such as ‘Twist It Like Kiki,’ which is sensational flexibility training class as we focus on targeting key areas of the body to gain and improve your flexibility and mobility.

In addition, King’s studio offers what is known as Pole Body Bootcamp, which is deemed an “intense powered workout,” she said.

“We also offer Succulent Motion, which is one of the most important parts of a pole dance routine, because it gives you a break between exhausting and challenging pole moves and holds, as well as gives more room for expressive dancing,” King explained. “It allows you to freely move your body in a more creative and expressive way so that your dance works with the music lyrics and not against it.”

As King acknowledged, her rise to becoming the pole fitness industry’s best kept secret stemmed from her past struggles with getting her weight under control.

MAKING MASSIVE HEADLINES — King, whose Kiki Dance Studio is three years removed from having gone into operations, was especially appreciative of the fact that the mainstream media is starting to observe pole fitness for what it is: a credible and effective way to help with your psychological and emotional health in reducing stress.

It wasn’t long thereafter that pole fitness had ultimately emerged as her passion, which connected her with her vision, which connected her with her purpose. Her divine purpose, that is.

Look at her today, basking in the glory of her element unlike never before — which, to her credit, is a far cry from those days she found herself struggling to outlast self-esteem.

“I was inspired by taking a class myself for weight loss,” King said. “I use to weigh 223 pounds at the time and seen how it was such a fun workout, and even the warm-ups were dynamic. I pushed and pushed, even my children encouraged me to do so as they pole as well, and we offer ‘Mommy and Me’ classes.”


WE’RE ALL IN

DID YOU KNOW? According to the Life Hack report, not only pole fitness a great way to embrace your inner sexiness, but it also has numerous health benefits that shouldn’t be overlooked.

At the end of the real day, all that matters for this accomplished Mid-South-area entrepreneur is that she’s gone to her great lengths to defy arguably the grandest of odds, a journey that ultimately steered her to her destiny.

“I had gone through a horrible divorce and I needed to find myself again,” said King, a certified CPR and first aid certified specialist whose community service includes having participated in the 2018 Black Beach in Biloxi, Mississippi, the Jonesboro Salvation Army’s Toy Drives for Christmas, as well as having sponsored the 2017 Kids Day Jonesboro.

“I completely lost who I was, and once I began taking these classes, I felt undefeated and seen a total transformation of myself. I was so amazed, and ever since then, it’s been constant self-motivation and determination.”

So don’t get it twisted.

Houston author Brittney Carr escapes suicide time and again, she explains in her new book


“I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 NIV)


DALLAS — As far as Brittney Carr is concerned, it literally goes without saying.

That is, she undoubtedly thanks God for her husband, Darius Carr, who unquestionably has been her grandest supporter ever since God has joined them together.

Consider, for instance, how in October 2018, during which God had strategically given Brittney Carr the awe-inspiring vision to make her authorship debut, courtesy of her book entitled, F.E.A.R., the acronym that stands for False Evidence Appearing Real.


SURROUNDED BY ANGELS

DESTINY STEPS — In October 2018, God had strategically given Houston author Brittney Carr the awe-inspiring vision to make her authorship debut, courtesy of her book entitled, F.E.A.R., the acronym that stands for False Evidence Appearing Real.

A 79-page project that Brittney Carr needed somewhere in the neighborhood of three months to assemble, F.E.A.R. is less than two months removed from having made its ceremonious release on the market.

During an interview this week with Making Headline News, Brittney Carr credited her beloved companion for having fueled her desire to compose a book that figures to help advance the kingdom — much sooner than later.


“God gave me the vision to write this book one day when my husband told me that I needed to tell people my story and that I would help many people with my testimony. So God told me to just start writing. So I started to write my story.” — Texas Author Brittney Carr 


And what a remarkably compelling and thought-provoking story it is.

An emotionally-drive, tear-jerking story that recalls how this brilliant author had had been spiritually and emotionally incarcerated to the point, during which she had attempted suicide an unprecedented four times during a span of six months, Carr’s F.E.A.R. is widely deemed an inspirational, yet true story, one that serves as an instant motivator for anyone who has gone through arguably the toughest of life’s trials and tribulations.

“Nothing is ever as bad as it seems, but it’s the paralyzing F.E.A.R. that difficult circumstances in life continually produce in our minds that cause us to go to pieces when faced with extreme adversities,” said a spokesperson for Carr’s book at Amazon.com. “The mental, emotional, and spiritual effects can be catastrophic or sometimes even fatal. This book was designed to help the millions of people worldwide that are currently going through something very difficult in life such as physical health issues, mental illness, financial problems, anxiety, addiction, heartbreak, failed relationships, parenting obstacles, death of a loved one, self-esteem troubles, spiritual warfare, mental and emotional trauma, and much more.”

HUBBY KNOWS BEST — During an interview this week with Making Headline News, Brittney Carr credited, Darius Carr, her beloved companion for having fueled her desire to compose a book that figures to help advance the kingdom — much sooner than later.

For Carr, a Houston-based author, she said that while the writing process of her book wasn’t merely a lengthy one — “Maybe a couple of days, but the editing took a little longer and the procrastination of not knowing if I wanted to let people know my business,” she acknowledged — she certainly didn’t want to be ashamed of the turbulent developments she disclosed.

Still, because she was thoroughly convinced that God had strategically placed her on assignment to compose her book, she knew full well she had to tell of her story to the masses.

THEY’RE DEPENDING ON HER — To no avail, God — as only He could — didn’t allow Carr to cross paths with a premature death, in large part because, well, the purpose for which He created her wasn’t fulfilled.

And so it came to pass, Carr’s assortment of emotional and life-alter testimonies, all of which had come wrapped up in a rather pivotal message, one that reminds us, among other things, that fear is false evidence appearing real, she often says without hesitation.

“Alot of people are paralyzed by fear and they are unable to live life,” Carr said. “I was one of those people. I wasn’t afraid to die, but I was afraid to live. I hated this world and everything in it. And I was ready to go home (to heaven).”

To no avail, God — as only He could — didn’t allow Carr to cross paths with a premature death, in large part because, well, the purpose for which He created her wasn’t merely fulfilled.

That, as a result, meant she had to tough it out, thus press and navigate her way through the slew of unfavorable circumstances that arose in her young life to challenge her faith.

“Through the goodness of God, I made it through,” Carr said. “And I want to let people know that they may be in the darkest place of their lives right now, but if they just continue to trust God and pray and cry out to Him that they can get out. God is a Present Help and He is always listening and guiding His children.”


HAVE NO FEAR 

TRUSTING THE PROCESS — For Carr, a Houston-based author, she said that while the writing process of her book wasn’t merely a lengthy one — “Maybe a couple of days, but the editing took a little longer and the procrastination of not knowing if I wanted to let people know my business,” she acknowledged — she certainly didn’t want to be ashamed of the turbulent developments she disclosed.

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

“I have gained very positive feedback,” said Carr, adding that a two more books are on the horizon. “People have been writing me, telling me how my testimonies have inspired them in many ways.”

Much to her delight, Carr has her husband to thank for helping steer her to her divine purpose.

“My life is a testimony that I was ashamed of, but not anymore,” Carr said. “I realized I’m not the only one with life issues, and if we just tell our testimonies and not be afraid, we can all help one another get through life until we go home.”

As far as this amazing author is concerned, that literally goes without saying.
