Louisiana Christian author Wendy Magee’s second book geared toward helping others embrace their purpose


I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. (Psalm 139:14 NIV)


EMBRACING PURPOSE 

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS — A devout woman of faith who has been married for more than 12 years, New Orleans author Wendy Magee deemed it essential to put her immeasurable authorship gifts on display for a second time, this time with the release of the newly-produced book entitled, “You Are Unique: Embrace It.”

Wendy Magee was all ears.

She heard all of what essentially was nothing more than murmuring and complaining —at least from a spiritual perspective.

Even as she listened attentively to a gallery of women collectively question the purpose for they were created, she sensed it was a civic duty to helped steer them in the right direction with God, her Helper, steering the way.
“I began hearing many women questioning their purpose,” Magee told Making Headline News this week. “As I spoke with these women, I found that many of them have been married for several years and feeling like they have lost themselves and didn’t have a purpose.”

“Each day is filled with life-changing advice, utilizing the word of God that you can apply to your own life,” Magee, a Port Arthur, Texas native, said.

A book that is spearheaded by the familiar Biblical passage that is Psalm 139:14, Magee’s latest written work has come full circle with the unyielding support of her husband, David Magee.


“(Our) purpose is to help people find out their purpose,” Magee explained. “The world wants you to think that as a woman, wife, mother, even a young lady that you don’t have purpose, but the word of God tells us that we are fearfully and wonderfully made.”

Shreveport, Louisiana businesswoman Melody Henderson-Davis making her dreams realities as owner of ‘global reach’ PR agency

What a difference a five dollar allowance has made.

At the time, Melody Henderson-Davis was just 12 years when, well…perhaps she can explain it best.

“When I was twelve years old, I could not wait to get my five dollar allowance on Friday’s and head straight to the super market and purchase a magazine,” Henderson-Davis, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, said while recalling the memorable events that have greatly inspired her to start her business. “I loved everything the publications represented. Once I would finish reading them, I felt informed. I was aware. I felt empowered and had a better sense of self.”

Consequently, over the next few years, Henderson-Davis began to grasp a feel for what she aspired to do, particularly from a career standpoint.  

“I knew then that I wanted to grow up and be the girl in the magazine,” Henderson-Davis said. “No, not the models, although I did go to a few open calls. But the girls that I wanted to be, their names were on the second or third page in the magazine…editor-in-chief, writer, editor, reporter. A journalist.  I started then making intentional efforts to develop my skill-set.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Upon graduating high school and then enrolling in college — first at Southern University at Shreveport and then the University Louisiana at Lafayette — Henderson-Davis declared Broadcast Journalism as her major.

A native of Shreveport, Louisiana, Henderson-Davis, 34, is presently enrolled in graduate school, where is pursuing a Master’s Degree in Public Relations.

What’s even more intriguing is that even while advancing her education, Henderson-Davis is going to great lengths to broaden her entrepreneurship skills and mechanics as owner and chief executive officer of PR Expressions/Public Relations With Melo Davis, her self-founded public relations boutique agency that is based in the Shreveport area but, according to this accomplished businesswoman, “We have a global reach.”

A business venture that went into full operations approximately one year ago — although Henderson-Davis’ public relations experience spans more than 12 years — PR Expressions/Public Relations With Melo Davis is widely known for working with virtually everyone, most notably small businesses, non-profit organizations, and faith-based and religious institutions, among others.

“As an agency, we increase our clients’ visibility through media exposure and customize business strategies,” Henderson-Davis explained. “Our agency has helped countless new start-ups establish their brands. Some people only had an idea and we consulted them into their launch phase.”

To her credit, Henderson-Davis’ business has made favorable strides since its inception last year, considering she has been afforded the luxury of service clients throughout the United States.

Not to mention, sums up how she become inspired to devise ways to see beyond her weekly allowance at the tender age of 12.

Not that she wasn’t merely appreciative of her five dollar weekly allowance. But Henderson-Davis doesn’t shy away from the notion that it was due in large part to her small weekly pension she customarily acquired as a child that essentially enabled her to discover the passion and purpose for which God has created her.

“I always found a way to meet the challenge in order beat the challenge,” Henderson-Davis said. “Most times, it wasn’t right away, but I never gave up on the possibility. My mindset has always been win-win. Even when I was failing, I knew one day I would thrive. I simply had to implement strategic planning.”
