Arkansas author ‘Nahnee’ recalls disastrous season of her young life in her book, ‘Convicted At 16’


Allah does not burden a soul beyond that it can bear (Qur’an 02:286)


BEAUTY FOR ASHES — On the brink of being tried as an adult, considering one of close acquaintances had died as a result of being gunned down, it was, in fact, a rather tumultuous season during which it seemed that life as Author Nahnee knew it was all but nearing a dead end — figuratively, of course. Nahnee is the mastermind behind the book entitled, “Convicted At 16.”

DALLAS — For the rising author known as “Nahnee,” such a memorable vision emerged during what undoubtedly was the darkest season of her young life.

“I was given the vision to write this book when I was involved in the shooting and robbery of my two close friends at the age of 15 years old and one of them passed away,” Nahnee told Making Headline News during an exclusive interview this week.
The vision to which Nahnee is alluding is the one that fueled her desire to compose the book entitled, “Convicted At 16,” her newly-produced written work that came full circle during her unlikely incarceration as a minor.
On the brink of being tried as an adult, considering one of close acquaintances had died as a result of being gunned down, it was, in fact, a rather tumultuous season during which it seemed that life as Nahnee knew it was all but nearing a dead end — figuratively, of course.
“While I was incarcerated, I cried every day about how I would someday write a book to tell my story, because people painted the picture of me as a murderer,” Nahnee, a Little Rock, Arkansas resident, explained. “On the side of that, my 14-year-old brother was involved as well, and I felt like if it wasn’t for me, he would of been able to live his life free.”

A book that is comprised of 186 pages in length (the eBook is 86 pages), Nahnee’s “Convicted At 16” is centered largely on one decision which, according to this gifted writer, has not only taken the life of her close friend, but could very well take away everything that matters to her, as mentioned in a detailed introduction of this book at https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/48163918-convicted-at-16.

“With a charge of capital murder hanging over her head, 15-year-old Nahnee is forced to take on an adult role as she battles for her freedom,” said a spokesperson for “Convicted At 16.”

As Nahnee explained to MHN, there was no doubt that her life at the tender age of 15 had “took a turn,” she said.

A turn for the worst, to put it more specifically.

But God Whom, much to the delight of this now 27-year-old author, had eventually stepped in and provided for her a way of escape.

“Five years…five months and nine days locked up,” said Nahnee, a Long Beach, California native, recalling how long she was confined between the dreaded walls of a jail cell. “Now I can say I’ve overcame many struggles being incarcerated at 15.”

Interestingly, Nahnee’s book also depicts a development during which she was involved with a man whom, according to this author, controlling, was abusive and manipulative.

Not to mention up to no good.

“He led me to set up robberies on people whom I was good friends of people I knew,” Nahnee recalled. “My book talks about one robbery that almost took place but didn’t, because my brother came home early from work. It also mentions a robbery that did happened an how the guy I was dating made me make the call and give orders to my friend on where to come.”

As Nahnee vividly explained, she had no choice but to do what she was told out of fear that something unfavorable would happen to her.

“There was no way out…and hadn’t been for three years of our relationship,” she told MHN. “I went through peer pressure, neglecting my family, disrespecting my mother and my father.”

All of these things, she acknowledged, her ill-advised decisions had led to a horrific crime involving two of her close friends, both of whom were robbed at gun point, one of whose life was cut short amid a cold-blooded murder.

But God Whom, much to the delight of this once downtrodden woman of distinct beauty, had eventually stepped in and provided for her a way of escape — one she didn’t sense would have come to fruition.

Not on her time watch.


“I have gotten awesome feedback from my book about how people see why I’m so cautious in my everyday life,” Nahnee said. “I struggle with opening up and trusting people. My dignity has been stripped. My freedom has been robbed. People have a better understanding of why I am the way I am and why I move the way I move with grace and caution.”


While she has no current speaking engagements to promote her new book, another book is forthcoming, Nahnee said.

Generally, Nahnee emphasized that her book was assembled, largely to bring about awareness to other millennials, most notably about the consequences for courting someone twice their age.

BEAUTY FOR ASHES 

“I was given the vision to write this book when I was involved in the shooting and robbery of my two close friends at the age of 15 years old and one of them passed away,” Nahnee told Making Headline News during an exclusive interview this week.

“I just want to reach young girls and boys (and to let them know) it’s not okay to date someone twice your age,” Nahnee said. “It’s okay to be different and respect your upbringing. I want people to know that if you are in a legal situation and you are under 18, don’t speak until your guardian is present to sign anything.

“I want people to be aware of their rights and that sometimes you’re tricked into thinking you’re going home, but yet you just opened your mouth that could potentially cause your life to be thrown away.”

Something to which she greatly attest.

But God.

Florida author Shemeka L. McNair’s choosing to ‘wait on God’ has resulted in her gifts making room for her

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND 2019 SPECIAL REPORT


Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. (Psalm 27:14 KJV)


WAITING FOR GOD’S APPROVAL 

TRUSTING THE PROCESS — Florida author Shemeka McNair’s featured written work is entitled, “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” a 170-page project that jumpstarted her authorship debut when it was ceremoniously released in 2016.

Just before midday EST on Saturday, Shemeka L. McNair took to her Facebook page, where she staged before her social media followers a rather forthright and riveting post that essentially had come wrapped up in a self-declaration, of sorts.

Said McNair in on her timelime:
This year, I will shake hands with million dollar investors. They will fund my vision in its entirety. Then I will become a millionaire and I will shake hands with people like me and I will fund their vision. Not only will I soon be a millionaire I will produce other millionaires for the Glory of God! I walk in this type of favor!! I am anointed for this.
Talk about shooting her spiritual shot. Talk about keeping it 100.
Talk about some making an emphatic, dauntless, in-your-face profession, one that figures to change not just the life of McNair but, most importantly, virtually an entire generation.
If, by chance, God deems it essential to bring that about which McNair has publicly declared to fruition, in all likelihood, she’ll be exchanging pleasantries with millionaires, who will surely express interest in her gallery of books.

One in particular is McNair’s featured written work entitled, “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” the 170-page project that jumpstarted her authorship debut when it was ceremoniously released in 2016.

“I wrote the book, because I was single for so long time and, at a certain point in my wait, I became tired of waiting and begin to make really (ill-advised) choices in men,” McNair, a native of Magee, Mississippi, told Making Headline News this week. “I lowered — basically got rid of — all of the standards I had and I just started to go with the flow of the dating scene. I bumped my head and had my heart broken so many times, I lost count.”

As McNair vividly explained, it wasn’t until God had her strategically confined inside of her vehicle that greatly enabled her to — for a lack of better words — see a light bulb moment, particularly it relates to her unfavorable decision-making in dating.


“One night, in the year 2011, I was sitting in the car, crying over a relationship and I begin to ask God, ‘Why is this happening to me? Why does this keep happening to me?’” — Florida Author Shemeka McNair 


As she consequently found out, God — His usual reliable Self — had provided her with some much-needed sense of direction.

“I heard a Voice say, ‘Write about it,’” McNair explained. “What type of response is that? I’m crying and You tell me to write about it. As time passed, I begin to journal about whatever I was going through in the relationships and courtships.”

LISTEN UP — As for the divine message she’s sending to her audience through “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” McNair said, “If you can wait, you can have whatever it is you want. When we rush we have everything we don’t want…like the wrong partner, toxic relationships, and situations we should have never been a part of. We all have a due season. We just have to enjoy, not despise our wait, because it will always be worth the wait.”

And before she knew it, she was on path to assuming the role of an author, a trend that has given way to this Orlando-based writer and businesswoman assembling three additional books, one of which is presently in the works and about to be headed for the printer.

Aside from an “Impatiently Waiting” book that has caught the attention of actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, who’s famously known for her childhood role as Rudy Huxtable in the classic NBC sitcom, “The Cosby Show,” McNair also authored:

“Behind the Scenes Of Success,” which was released in December 2017, or approximately 10 months after the first one. Then in January 2019, she published “On the Road To Recovery.”

As McNair can boldly admit today, she’s grateful to God for having assigned her to speak along such a thought-provoking, spiritually-empowering topic for such a time as now.

We just have to enjoy, not despise our wait, because it will always be worth the wait.”

As McNair can boldly admit today, she’s grateful to God for having assigned her to speak along such a thought-provoking, spiritually-empowering topic for such a time as now.

McNair’s “Behind the Scenes Of Success” was released in December 2017, or approximately 10 months after her first book.

“Many people have said to me that I will write books, but I didn’t know how or where to start,” McNair said. “So I just started to write down what I thought I should be writing until one day in 2015, I was visiting a church and the pastor asked me to stand and he said to me, ‘I see you journaling. I see you are writing a lot.’”

Surely, such a public prophesy essentially was God speaking to McNair through one of His spokespersons.

McNair’s “On the Road To Recovery” debuted in January of this year.

To her credit, it’s a good thing she took heed to that which God revealed to her.

Continued the Pastor: “God said for you to hurry up and write the book and he will send the finances.”

STAR POWER — McNair’s “Impatiently Waiting”has caught the attention of actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, who’s famously known for her childhood role as Rudy Huxtable in the classic NBC sitcom, “The Cosby Show.”

And just like that, McNair’s authorship tenure was officially underway, an awe-inspiring development that given way to four books — and counting.

“That put a fire under me and I was trying to write, but didn’t know what I should be writing,” McNair said.

Once she had finally found her niche as an accomplished author, God, in turn, had provided the increase.

GLIMPSE OF GOD’S GLORY — If, by chance, God deems it essential to bring that about which McNair has publicly declared to fruition, in all likelihood, she’ll be exchanging pleasantries with millionaires, who will surely express interest in her gallery of books.

“I have received great feedback from everyone,” McNair said of her assortments, especially the first one. “They feel the book is real and relatable. Even men have said the book was a great read.”

Chances are, those millionaires with whom she will eventually cross paths will share the same sentiments.

OMG! Oklahoma City author Shanell Monique’s ‘The Wife Between Us’ is a huge must read

OK-CARING FOR OTHERS

THREE AND COUNTING — To her credit, Oklahoma City author Shanell Monique has gone to great lengths to appropriately empower women to abstain from bothering their emotional wounds in her newly-produced book project entitled, “The Wife Between Us,” her emotionally-driven project she needed less than a year to produce — from February 2018 to January 2019 to be exact.

DALLAS — As if Shanell Monique’s latest book isn’t a massive crowd-pleaser, wait ‘til you get a check of her forthcoming written work.

For what it’s worth, this one figures to leave Shanell Monique’s reading audience on the edge of its seats.

“My reason was to be a voice for other women,” Shanell Monique, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, said of her soon-to-be-released project. “Because we don’t understand why you were chosen to go through the storm, because you don’t understand the power of your blessings that follow, you can’t expect anyone to understand your struggles. To heal a wound you need to stop touching it.”

To her credit, Shanell Monique has gone to great lengths to appropriately empower women to abstain from bothering their emotional wounds in her newly-produced book project entitled, “The Wife Between Us,” her emotionally-driven project she needed less than a year to produce — from February 2018 to January 2019 to be exact.

As Shanell Monique emphasized, her divine purpose for having assembled “The Wife Between Us” is centered largely on three strategic words: “Preserve Your Power,” she said with such authority.

Wait, there’s more, this brilliantly creative Oklahoma City-based author acknowledged.

“You can’t be powerful in your money, your love or your happiness if you’re always giving it away,” said Shanell Monique, further alluding to her book’s key points as only she could. “Not everybody and everything is worth your energy.”

Especially when such energy is being taken away — or even eradicated — amid things and situations that could potentially prove devastating to one’s destiny.


“Unplug from negative situations and people. Let them go. Turn them off. Hit delete. Press stop. Press pause. If you want a powerful relationship, stop feeding into negative energy. If you want a powerful paycheck, stop feeding into negative energy at work.” — OKC Author Shanell Monique 


As for life itself, as precious and as fragile it is, Shanell Monique’s got something for women who sense that life is short-changing them.

“If you want a powerful life, stop feeding doubt, fear, and insecurities,” she said. “Somebody needs to give you power. Somebody needs to love you back. Somebody needs to help you. Somebody needs to support you.”

STORY BEHIND THE STORY — Having authored  “Broken Silence” and “Love & Confidence Journal,” which were released in December 2017 and in April 2018, respectively, Shanell Monique said her inspiration for composing “The Wife Between Us” arose in the wake of her divorce.

Because after all, “Sometimes that person is you,” Shanell Monique said. “Love yourself enough to preserve your power for the people and situations that are worth it. If you preserve your power, you’ll preserve yourself.”

Having authored  “Broken Silence” and “Love & Confidence Journal,” which were released in December 2017 and in April 2018, respectively, Shanell Monique said her inspiration for composing “The Wife Between Us” arose in the wake of her divorce.

“(That’s) when God really put it on my heart to finish my story,” said Shanell Monique, “and be a voice for women.”

That she’s certainly doing.

So wait ‘til you get a check of her forthcoming written work.

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.

Accomplished Chicago Sports Psychotherapist Natalie Graves’ private practice becoming a fixture for professional athletes

Natalie Graves owns a Chicago-based mental health therapy practice, one that much to her delight, is steadily attracting a national presence.  

SAVORING THE FRUITS OF LABOR — Chicago-based Sports Psychotherapist Natalie Graves, 47, the founder and chief executive officer of Natalie Graves Athletic Counseling, has worked tirelessly to help construct her practice to what it has become to this very day: one that undoubtedly turning heads, particularly throughout the world of professional sports.

For that very reason, her practice is starting to attract exposure through the mainstream media, a trend to which Graves essentially is trying to become accustomed.

“Sounds good,” Graves told Making Headline News during a weekend interview when word spread of her latest coverage through the media. “I’m nervous.”

While Graves admittedly was gripped with a few jitters, the mere fact that she is garnering the exposure she deserves is surely warranted.

Amongst the reasons is that Graves, 47, the founder and chief executive officer of Natalie Graves Athletic Counseling, has worked tirelessly to help construct her practice to what it has become to this very day — one that is undoubtedly turning heads, particularly throughout the world of professional sports.

Credit her profound passion for sports and, most importantly, her commitment to helping people from various walks of life as the key factors that have greatly inspired Graves to connect with her God-given purpose.

“I have always loved helping people and I grew up watching sports,” Graves said. “You could call me a sports fanatic. What is special about my practice is that I get to combine my two loves. Assisting athletes to overcome obstacles that have impacted their game gives me such a high.

“Oftentimes, when athletes first come to see me, they have never worked with a therapist before,” Graves continued. “The best feeling in the world is when someone says to me, ‘I feel better,’ or their coaches see a change in their performance. That never gets old. It’s so inspiring.”

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — Having earned a Bachelor’s degree from the historic Chicago State University, Graves received her Master’s degree from the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration.

To her credit, Graves has certainly put in the work to be able to function mightily in her element for such a time as now.

Having earned a Bachelor’s degree from the historic Chicago State University, Graves received her Master’s degree from the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration.

Consequently, she was a visiting student at the University of Maryland, where she studied abroad in the United Kingdom, where she became knowledgeable in the Sports, Commerce, not to mention the Culture in the Global Marketplace Program.

Interestingly, Graves completed an Addictions Studies Program at City Colleges of Chicago Kennedy-King College.

“I have been very fortunate that I have been able to travel through speaking engagements all over the United States and as far as to England and France,” said Graves, adding that her parents and husband headline her solid supporting cast. “My mentor, Greg Harden of the University of Michigan, has been very impactful in my professional life. He was the first social worker that I found that was working directly with athletes. Seeing what he did reinforced that I could make a career in sports.”

A TRUE SPORT — Credit her profound passion for sports and, most importantly, helping people from various walks of life as the key factors that have greatly inspired Graves to connect with her God-given purpose.

The rest, as they say, was history.

Today, unlike never before, Graves is not only savoring the fruits of her labor as an accomplished sports psychotherapist, but she’d be the first to admit that she’s literally having fun with it.

Which, fortunately for her, was all a part of God’s plan all along.

“My story started when I was a young girl, growing up in Chicago,” Graves recalled. “I remember rushing home from church to watch the (Chicago) Bears and Bulls games. That was our thing as a family. We watched Chicago sports together. My dad taught me the rules of the game and I loved it. As I got older, I started not just following football and basketball, I developed an interest in all sports.”

A trend that has ultimately given way to her basking in the glory of her element on one of professional sports largest stages.

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

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

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

Dallas/Fort Worth-area actress Lucretia Johnson living out her long-awaited dream, inspiring youths in the process

EDITOR’S NOTE: This story was produced and released on Friday, November 10, which is Texas-based actress Lucretia Johnson’s 52nd birthday. 

 

FRUITS OF HER LABOR — A native of Nacogdoches — a small, rural East Texas establishment with a population of roughly 32,996 residents, according to the latest U. S. census taken in 2010 — actress Lucretia Johnson is not only doing big things in a Lone Star State where people are accustomed to doing big things but, much to her delight, she’s having a massive impact in the ever-so-competitive acting industry.

DALLAS — Earlier this week, Lucretia Johnson was asked why it is imperative that she esteems other highly than herself, as we are reminded according to scripture.

“The smallest act of kindness can change someone’s life,” Johnson explained during an interview with Making Headline News. “This is what motivates me to what I do daily.”

That about which Johnson is alluding is her widely-publicized tenure as an accomplished actress, a career that has greatly afforded her with golden opportunities to put her immeasurable talents on display, all while impacting a younger generation in the process.

A native of Nacogdoches — a small, rural East Texas establishment with a population of roughly 32,996 residents, according to the latest U. S. census taken in 2010 — Johnson is not only doing big things in a Lone Star State where people are accustomed to doing big things but, much to her delight, she’s having a massive impact in this ever-so-competitive acting industry.

Armed with wealth of modeling experience, Johnson is has become a fixture also through her tireless effort and solid body of work as Project Manager for Headline Mentors and Performing Arts (or H.M.P.A.).

“What I like most about acting is I can be anyone I want to be and (I have) the opportunity to show children of color possibilities and opportunities they don’t normally consider,” Johnson said.

Armed with a wealth of acting — and modeling — experience, Johnson is has become a fixture also through her tireless effort and solid body of work as Project Manager for Headline Mentors and Performing Arts (or H.M.P.A.).

Through this Arlington, Texas-based nonprofit organization, Johnson’s notable responsibilities include helping mentor youths through prefixing arts, especially inner city, low income youths, whereby she customarily provides them with skills and opportunities that they never thought could be possible.

“I just love helping people and that is what God put us here to do,” said Johnson, adding that a planned trip to Los Angeles is presently in the works with the H.M.P.A. youths sometime in Spring 2018.

All things considered, if anyone is thoroughly qualified through acting to empower and inspire a younger generation, it is Johnson.

SAY WHAT? Johnson’s remarkably impressive acting resume, which includes having appeared in an episode of TV One’s Fatal Attraction that was filmed in Knoxville, Tennessee. Interestingly, she appeared in an episode of the show, Murder Made Me Famous, during which the subject was the infamous Jim Jones Story.

Consider, for instance, her remarkably impressive professional acting resume, which includes having appeared in an episode of TV One’s Fatal Attraction that was filmed in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Interestingly, she appeared in an episode of the show, Murder Made Me Famous, during which the subject was the infamous and controversial Jim Jones story.

Fortunately for Johnson, that she has been afforded the luxury of appearing on what many would label acting’s grandest stage, her immense gifts and talents have allowed her to put her skills on display in a variety of places throughout the country.

Having worked more than 25 years as an apartment complex Property Manager in an inner city, low income setting, Johnson acknowledged that chapter of her life is where she learned some of her most influential and vital lessons, in large part because she had become inclined to expose rebuilding communities to an assortment of positive things.

“I have been blessed to travel and work in Atlanta and throughout Texas,” said Johnson, who is scheduled to go on tour in December as part of a stage play that was written and directed by Greg Ellis entitled, “Watch Night.”

The tour will cover three states and seven cities, most notably Atlanta, Raleigh and Durham, North Carolina, as well as Tyler, Beaumont, Austin, Houston, Texas.

In addition, Johnson recently completed two independent feature films: “Meeting The Folks,” a family comedy that was written and produced by Fred Tee, and “Shattered Love,” a family tragedy and domestic abuse-oriented project that was written and produced by Corta Ish.

Also, Johnson is involved in a short independent film called, “Ripples,” a project that was written and produced by Michael Green whereby the subject addresses sickle cell anemia and HIV.

NATIONAL STAGE — Fortunately for Johnson, that she has been afforded the luxury of appearing on what many would label as acting’s grandest stage, her immense gifts and talents have allowed her to put her skills on display in a variety of places throughout the country.

As if that isn’t enough to turn heads and draw rave reviews, Johnson will be a part of a January stage called, “When My Heart Stops,” a compelling project that addresses grief and was written and produced by Jeanette Greenwood.

Having worked more than 25 years as an apartment complex Property Manager in an inner city, low income setting, Johnson — a former domestic violence and abuse victim —  acknowledged that such a chapter of her life is where she learned some of her most influential and vital lessons, in large part because she had become greatly inclined to expose rebuilding communities to an assortment of positive things.

For what it’s worth, inspiring others to see from beyond where they were and make their dreams realities ranked near the top of the list.

MOM KNOWS BEST — “My mother, Merrylyn Johnson, raised me, believing I could accomplish anything,” said Johnson, who’s been acting professionally for approximately seven years while serving as a mentor for a little more than four years. “I lost sight of that for a while.”

“My mother, Merrylyn Johnson, raised me, believing I could accomplish anything,” said Johnson, who’s been acting professionally for approximately seven years while serving as a mentor for a little more than four years. “I lost sight of that for a while.”

Johnson, as it turned out, had eventually adopted a newfound disposition on life when her lifelong companion had come along.

GIVING BACK MIGHTILY — Armed with wealth of modeling experience, Johnson is has become a fixture also through her tireless effort and solid body of work as Project Manager for Headline Mentors and Performing Arts (or H.M.P.A.). Through this Arlington, Texas-based nonprofit organization, Johnson’s primary responsibilities include helping mentor youths through prefixing arts, especially inner city, low income youths, whereby she customarily provides them with skills and opportunities that they never thought could be possible.

“When I married my current husband, Eric Johnson, he encouraged me to be all I can,” Johnson said. “He gave me the freedom and support to pursue my goals. He said, ‘Just go for it a let’s see what happens.’”

The rest, as they say, was history for Johnson whom, to her credit, coupled with her husband’s unyielding support, is walking in the divine purpose for which God created her.

“God put us on this earth to help our fellow man,” Johnson said.

Which, fortunately for her, is more valid proof why it is imperative that she esteems other highly than herself, as we are reminded according to scripture.
