Encourage and Reflect on Father’s Day

Encourage one another and build each other up” 1 Thess 5:11

Father’s Day does not get the same overwhelming celebration as Mother’s Day. Fathers have an important role in the family and in the lives of their children. This month as we celebrate Father’s Day let’s honor reflect and encourage the father figures in our lives. Pray for fathers, who may not be perfect, but who love their children, train their children, protect their children and have good relationships with their children. I challenge you to share positive comments and reflections about the father, father figures, grandfathers, uncles, mentors and committed men in your life that will encourage them. Please share your story and comments.

Whether we’re celebrating our dads, stepdads, brothers, sons or other father figures in our lives, these men need to hear what a difference their lives and love makes.1 Thessalonians 5:11 CSB reminds us to “encourage one another and build each other up,” and Father’s Day is a chance for us build up the men in our lives and to encourage them. Lift those dads up; celebrate their unique calling; remind them how much they’re appreciated every single day. This Father’s Day we can pray for the special men in our lives spend time with them and remember those who are no longer here.

Reflection

Fathers can be protective strong and stern, yet heartfelt and gentle. They are always there to provide, lend a helping hand, or be our biggest cheerleader A couple of years ago on Radio station 1200 AM in the city of Detroit, John Mason, of Mason in the Afternoon, was asking for positive reflections and comments about one’s father, grandfather or a father figure. One reflection, by a man who called into the radio station to comment, touched my heart. He stated that his father taught him many things by his actions. He said he learned how to be a father and the protector of his family from his father. “When I was about 7 years old I went “trick or treating” on Halloween with some friends”, said the caller. “ A bigger boy stole our bags. All I could remember was seeing a flash go by and jump the fence. Next thing I knew I had my Halloween bag back. It was my father who jumped that fence. He had been watching and covering me all the time”. That story brought tears to my eyes because the actions of the father symbolized the love the heavenly Father has for us in that he watches over us and protects us. For the now grown caller it taught him how to watch over his family. Another gentleman called in and stated he “learned how to respect women because of how he saw his father respect and treat his mother”.

Prayer

We should pray for others. Prayer is a simple gift we can pray for the men in your life anytime and anywhere. Pray for their strength and guidance , spiritual growth , protection and health. Thank God for that father , grandfather or uncle’s presence in your life. Pray for grace and encouragement in their brokenness and in their daily lives.

Remembering:

Honor the memory of fathers who have passed on.Proverbs 10:7 CSB says: “The memory of the righteous is blessed.” Spend time reflecting on the legacy your father left-how did they honor or show the love of God? What did they teach you about life, and how can we pass that wisdom along to others.

Jeanette Johnson’s father has been dead for many years but she talks about her father frequently with love and respect. Her honor and respect for his wisdom radiates from her heart for this man who only had a third grade education, but was full of wisdom , strength, and integrity who provided for his children and adored his wife and owned land and property and feed neighbors who were poor. When she speaks of him you can hear and feel the respect and honor she has for him.

Again I challenge you to share and leave your positive comment and reflections about your father, grandfather, stepdad or father figure. Share the color of the loving, positive, supportive relationship you had with the father figure in your life.

Network for Success by Pam Perry

Nobody gets to the highest peaks without help from others.

Networking is the identification of relationships for the purpose of sharing information and resources. Taking time for people and communication is the key. Don’t ever get too busy to share information or your wisdom.

Success comes when you hook up with like-minded folks and kindred spirits. Moving ahead often involves reaching out and being willing to give. We reap what we sow.

So, how does one “network” for success?

Here are some practical tips to implement:

  1. Be visible. Dress sharp and snappy. Look like someone others want to know because your image says “success.” Be willing to attend functions alone. Networking expands your circle of influence, builds your personal brand, and garners support.
  2. Give before you get. Sow before you reap. Look for ways to be a blessing. Share information and resources with contacts before asking them for anything. Search for their interests and goals when meeting someone new. Figure out a way to help them.Gather, collect, and distribute info. Position yourself as the “go to” person for ministry information. Provide regular updates about helpful events or books. Use an email database system like active campaign or AWeber to simplify the process and send information attractively.

    3. Write your vision. Make it plain. Make the most of networking opportunities by having eye-catching marketing materials. Have more than a business card when going to a conference or event. Be intentional about your purpose. Have a bookmark or postcard describing your book. Offer a CD or brochure as a speaker.

    4. Demonstrate your sincere faith by being a person of character and integrity. Follow the Golden Rule which says, “Treat others as you want to be treated”, with respect and courtesy. Follow up and follow through. Deliver on your promises.

    So be deliberate in creating partnerships, building relationships and keeping friendships. Make it your intent to be kind, really care about people, treat others with respect and value everyone.

A Soldier’s Story Excerpt

 

Shortly after I turned 18, I enlisted in the army. Around that time, I learned that the young woman I’d been dating was pregnant, so going into the army would be an opportunity to provide for my child. The army sent me to Fort Dix in New Jersey for boot camp training on April 22, 1982. It was the perfect enlistment site for me.

 

Because of the popular television show, Dallas, I had in mind that I wanted to go to Fort Hood, Texas and meet JR Ewing. Not only did I meet Larry Hagman, the actor who played JR, but I also met the entire cast at one of the big Dallas malls. That was in the 80s when the networks spent money to have cast members show up to greet their fans, and when fans could easily get a photo with the stars. Meeting JR had been on my mental bucket list. Later I learned that “Klinger” from Mash and Danny Thomas were both from Toledo, and so I added them to the list.

 

In 1983, I re-enlisted and chose Hawaii as my next army stint. There for 18 months, I’m convinced that the Hawaii move helped me look long and hard at myself and my future. In Hawaii, I decided I needed to better myself. I enrolled at the Wahiawa Community School for Adults and got my high school diploma. My mother was so disappointed when I didn’t graduate from high school, so I did it as much for her as for myself.

 

My long transportation management career began in Wahiawa. I was one of a large number of applicants who applied for a temporary mission of driving for the Sergeant Major for the division. He was the senior enlisted man at the post. I beat out the other candidates for that position. Later, I drove for the one-star general at the post. After that, I returned to my unit and worked as the battalion mail clerk until he left in 1985. While there, I met friends and mentors who would help me decide on my career journey. That same year, I was asked to re-enlist, and First Sergeant Herbert Harris became a lifelong mentor and friend. Sergeant Harris recommended that I choose Fort Eustis in Newport News, Virginia for my re-enlistment. I remained at Fort Eustis from April 1985 until January 1988.

 

I became a squad leader, and for the next six months, I managed a squad of truck drivers in and around the base. After that, I was set on transportation becoming my specialty, but my career trajectory changed some when I was appointed to head up NCO Training, where I was responsible for the training of 270 soldiers.

 

Around this time, I met First Sergeant Fletcher Walker. He was sent in to straighten out our company, and he did just that. He would stand up at the top of the stairs with his hat covering his eyes but looking down at us. Sergeant Walker was a ‘soldier among soldiers,’ an airborne paratrooper, a Vietnam Veteran who had been shot three times. There was no one more surprised when he chose me to run the training.

 

I knew he had high expectations, and I was determined not to disappoint him. He was the kind of leaders for whom soldiers would fight and die. He was a true hero who taught me how to be a soldier and a man. He shared a lot about life with me. I imitated him in many ways so much that everyone would call me “Baby Walker.” I met his family and it was an honor. He retired as a Command Sergeant Major.

Dream Big.Get Started. Do Big.

“It isn’t a calamity to die with dreams unfulfilled, BUT it is certainly a calamity not to dream.” Benjamin E. Mays- minister, educator, scholar, social activist and the president of Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia from 1940 to 1967 #dreambig #calmitynottodream

 

As we celebrate Black History Month remember -Inventions, financial empowerment, entrepreneurial success, social changes and social justice can be achieved by those of you who make the bold decision to apply your knowledge, your energy and your talent to humanitarian goals. Think of how those we honor today gave to make a difference for others.
If it is encouraging, let him encourage;
if it is contributing to the needs of others,
let him give generously; if it is leadership,
let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully. Romans 12:8 NIV
#BlackHistoryMonth #CelebrateGiftsofBlackpeople

African American Victory of Spirit- Black Quotations- Persevere- Don’t Quit
“You never know which key unlocks the safe” . Bryant Gumbel, former Morning News Host #persevere
Success is achieved by those willing to persevere beyond the point where the majority stop and turn back. Today is your day.

God has given you talents, gifts and His Word. Take another step closer to your goal. Hold fast to the hope, the Word, to “doing” your dream if God put it there. (Hebrews 10:35-39)

Just think of the entrepreneur’s influence Madam C.J. Walker.Walker, born Sarah Breedlove in 1867 in Louisiana. She is remembered today as the first black self-made female millionaire in the United States. Through hard work and her witty inventions she amassed her fortune by inventing groundbreaking haircare products for women of color. She also implemented strategic marketing skills .

One of Walker’s best known quotes is “I got my start by giving myself a start.” She was born the child of sharecroppers in Louisiana, and her parents died when she was just 7 years old. She worked as a farm laborer and married her first husband when she was just 14 to leave the dangerous home of her brother-in-law. A widow and single mother to a young daughter at 20, she decided to move to Missouri where she worked for less than $2 a day to afford to get her daughter an education. We can gain many insights from this great entrepreneur

Use the gifts and talents God gave you to bless others and to generate wealth. Dream Big . Pray Big. Then begin to take action to accomplish your dream. Write your goals down using the SMART system (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Timeline) and set dates to accomplish the plan. Make the call. Develop a team. Start. Make the call. Write the book.

Prayer: Thank you Lord for the gifts and talents you have provided me. Let me use them to your glory and to bless others.  Let me not grow weary in preparing, in toiling to create the witty invention, to have entrepreneur success and to develop systems that will provide solutions to the needs of human kind. Give me favor and the wisdom and strength to persevere. In the name of Jesus.

5 Smart Reasons Why Authors Should Hire a PR Coach Instead of a Publicist

Pam Perry  Publisher | Award-winning Social Media Marketing Strategist | Podcaster

Have you considered hiring a publicist but their fees are way out of your price range?

Do you need a publicist but you’ve heard the horror stories of “I paid my retainers and got nothing?”

Regardless of the fact that this may all be true, at some point people need to know about your business other than by word of mouth. Publicity has served and still today is the best avenue in getting the word out.

My company, Ministry Marketing Solutions, Inc., has done full service PR campaigns for the most well-known Christian publishers and authors in the nation from Bishop TD Jakes, Pastor Bill Winston, Taffi Dollar, Pastor Rudy Rasmus, the late Dr. Myles Monroe and Dr. Suzan Johnson Cook + more but we also teach and mentor authors to be their own publicist – to build their platform, brand their ministry.

In our program, we coach you step by step, exactly how to do your own publicity and branding just like the pros. You actually become the publicist for your book and build your “brand” to get media hits and speaking gigs.

 

Let’s check out these 5 reasons why you may want to consider

The Branding Accelerator Program:

#1 – Cost This is the number one reason many authors have turned to PR & Brand Building coaching. The usual fees for a publicist range from $2,500-$5,000+ a month, depending on the publicist and the number of hours required to publicize the business or ministry.

#2 – Customized Plan When you work with a PR coach, your publicity plan is customized just for your book/ministry/business, not some template. We give feed back!

#3 – Media Savvy You will learn everything there is to know about the various forms of media and how to get your business or ministry noticed by them. We give you real media contacts and show you how to find your own too. (Unheard of in the industry).

#4 – Online Tips and Tricks You will learn how to leverage twitter, pinterest, facebook, instagram, youtube, blogs, linkedin and more to build your brand and sell more books. Create online relationships that turn into customers and ministry partners. Learning these free online marketing tools will save you thousands of dollars.

#5 – Platform Building In today’s society there is more than just publicity. You can get leads online via social media marketing, speaking, traditional media…we give you a strategy using all three – easily. It’s all about strategy and having the right resources and vendors. That’s what we teach and give to pull it all together.

So as you see, hiring a PR Coach is a great alternative to hiring a publicist or a public relations firm.

For more info go to: www.BrandingAcceleratorProgram.com

to see what others have said about the program’s results!

It is a self-paced program so you don’t have worry if you can’t make the exact date/times – you set your own schedule.

How simple is that!?

Thank God Always

Thank God Always (Days 26-30)

 

I hope you enjoyed Thanksgiving Day celebration with family and friends. You have much to thank God for. Think about it and then thank the Lord.

God’s command is “In every thing give thanks”; and the command is emphasized by the declaration, “for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (1 Thess. 5:18, KJV). It is an actual positive command. If we want to obey God, we have simply got to give thanks in everything. There is no getting around it.

Sometimes we have to Hallelujah anyway! What does that mean? We must believe God is blessing us always, and we must be thankful at all times.  Instead of blaming God and complaining when things go wrong, thank God anyway. Believe that God will turn a tragedy into a triumph. It does not mean you understand the occurrence, don’t hurt and that you don’t cry. It means you will still have a thankful heart and praise the Lord.

O give thanks unto the Lord! Call upon His name; make known his deeds among the people!(1 Chronicle16:8-10) No matter what the circumstance give thanks that you have a prayer hearing God, that has unfamthonable love for and that you are more than a conqueror.

God’s command is “In every thing give thanks”; and the command is emphasized by the declaration, “for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (1 Thess. 5:18, KJV). It is an actual positive command. If we want to obey God, we have simply got to give thanks in everything. There is no getting around it.

Day 26 Brag on God for His love and His loving kindness to you. Brag on Him for who is He is. “I praise You because You are a loving God, whose very nature is love”. (1 Jn 4:16)
Think, about His goodness. Praise Him. Thank Him and tell what your are thankful for. Open your mouth and tell it. Think and Thank. #BragonGod #ThinkandthankGod
“Oh that men would praise the Lord for His goodness and loving-kindness and His wonderful works to the children of men! Ps. 107:21
“And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving and rehearse His deeds with shouts of joy and singing! Ps 107: 22.

Season of Thankfulness: Brag on God
Day 27 Brag on God- Think and Thank
. Think about His goodness, grace, and greatness. Thank God for all of His daily benefits. Tell it below thank Him. Psalm 106

1 Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!) O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy and loving-kindness endure forever!

2 Who can put into words and tell the mighty deeds of the Lord? Or who can show forth all the praise [that is due Him]?

 

A Season of Thankfulness: Brag on God
Day 28 Brag on God
– Think about His goodness, greatness, grace and love. Thank Him for all that He has done in your life.Tell the Lord what you are thankful for.
