So, I may be too old to have these new feelings and asking what I am about to ask you, but I have to try. There is this minister at my church that I have a major crush on. He is 33. He, too, has never been married and has no kids. Of course, all the single women are constantly throwing themselves at him. He has not gone out with anyone from the church that I know of. When I asked about him, I was told he is focused on his ministry right now that is why he is not dating. I admire that also. My question is how do I get him to know that I am interested in him without coming


Dear Mrs. Right.

I believe you are already doing the right thing to get yourself noticed, and that is not throwing yourself on or at him. Afford him the opportunity to do just what he says he needs to do; and I advise you to do the same. Keep your mind focused on your ministry. I would assume that you all are meeting in ministerial classes at your church, so that gives him the opportunity to see and know who you are. If you truly are Mrs. Right, he will find you. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whosoever finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor of the LORDâ&#x20AC;? (Proverbs 18:22).

He Can Turn Your Dead End Into A Finish Line


By Henry Nelson 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 ”Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.” I do not know if you have ever been depressed. Situations all around you just seem to wrong. When it seems as though everything and everybody has turned their back on you. You got a past due notice on every bill. You have to through your bills and the air and whichever lands face up is the one getting paid. You pray before you go to the ATM machine that it does not snatch up your card and

shred it to pieces. You try to use your credit card but the clerk tells you that she has got to confiscate it. Have you ever put seventy five dollars in the bank just so you could have nothing? Your bank account was so negative that you put just enough money to bring your account to a zero balance. Your children got kicked out of school or locked up. You have been out looking for a job for months and it seems like when you walk up they take down the now hiring sign. It seems as though you just cannot get a break. It seems as though you have come to the end of your rope and run into a brick wall. I have been depressed to the point where I thought that I would take my own life. I could have been dead and gone, but do you know you cannot check out of here until you fulfill the master’s plan. I am here to tell you today that GOD is able to turn your dead end into a finish line. Amen! There is a pre-requisite. The bible

tells us that if my people which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from there wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven. Over in Ezekiel 33rd chapter the bible gives us warning and promises. The warning is thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it, if he does not turn from it, if he does not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou have delivered thy soul. Amen! The promise Ezekiel gives us the promise that if the wicked restore the pledge to God walk in the statues of life without committing iniquity he shall surely live. 1st Corinthians was written by Paul to the Church in Corinth and Christians everywhere. It was written sometime about 55 A.D. during his three year visit to Ephesus Corinth and Ephesus faced each other across the Aegean Sea. The Church as Corinth was going through the same

struggles that the Church and our government are going through today. They were struggling with their social environment. Sin and corruption on every hand and they felt the pressures to adapt. Churches today are feeling the pressure to adapts to the world, but the bible says be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind. Amen!

Blockbuster 10 Million Heart- Wrenching Great Commission!

Former Dallas Cowboys #1 Draft Pick Greg Ellis, CEO of ChurchNow Network and Roderick Martin, CEO of Talented Thoughts Unleash Blockbuster 10 Million Heart- Wrenching Great Commission! Greg Ellis, CEO ChurchNow Network THE GREAT COMMISSION Matthew 28:16-20 As technology evolves, online shopping, WebTV, live video streaming and mobile consumption habits continue to demonstrate unfettered growth. Which means opportunities for marketers and ministries to connect with consumers, wherever they may be, are without limit. The audience is there, and so is the hype. In 5 years ChurchNow Network will reach an estimated 10 million monthly viewers. But how can marketers navigate this new terrain without getting caught up in the "internet mystique"?

Our network approach is to develop integrated, earned and media programs for ministries and small businesses that align with offline marketing objectives.

For each of our clients we seek the breakthrough moment of insight that inspires an ongoing interaction, maximizes loyalty and encourages evangelism via unlimited media outlets.

We have won! By Joseph Green-Bishop

It is not quite 3 pm on November 6th in the central United States. The national polls, depending on where you live in the country, will not close for hours. Yet, I am making a bold prediction that President Barack Obama has won and those of us who worked for his re-election bid will be emboldened tonight knowing that an agenda that we believed in and supported will be pursued for another four years. Mr. Obama has been a wonderful President. He has served the nation without the presence of a personal or national scandal. His policies prevented the nation from falling into a second economic depression, his first piece of legislation guaranteed women equal pay for equal work, he appointed two women to the United States Supreme Court, he saved America’s automobile industry, he supervised the destruction of the madmen called Al Qaeda, he

eliminated the fear among some young men and women, of being swept from their beds at night and returned to countries that were foreign to them, he established an agency that protects consumers from voracious lenders and creditors, he gave hope to so many of us whose spirits had been dimmed and nearly darkened and he insisted that capital growth be fair and equitable.

For Immediate Release

Red White & Blue Ribbon Cutting

There is much more that he did but so little space to write all of his accomplishments. Of course, his policies were not accepted by all. This is a Democracy and people have the right to oppose those with whom they disagree. Yet, some of those who are against our President oppose him not because of what he has promulgated, but simply because of who he is and what they think of his origins. For the past four years, I have watched them and pitied them. No matter what one thinks of Mr. Obama and no matter how they voted or will vote, one thing is for certain. America will never be the same again because President Barack Obama was, in fact, elected President of the United States. And today you have young boys and girls from all types of backgrounds who believe that they can accomplish what Mr. Obama accomplished and more.

“Forward” has become their call to battle and they will never be deterred. And unlike some of us who believed that we would never see a person with dark skin live in the White House as the President of the United States, they believe that an Hispanic will one day be President, an Asian will one day be president, a woman will one day be president, an agnostic will one day be president, a homosexual will one day be President and a homeless person will one day be President. This nation owes Barack Obama, Michelle and their children much more than a pension. It owes them a debt of gratitude for four splendid years of service. And hopefully, once all the ballots are counted, four more years. *Trained as a lawyer, Joseph GreenBishop is an author, writer and commentator. He can be reached at or 214-8863716.

“Rapping with Fairy”

If you were president, what changes would you make?

realize yet what it takes to make laws and/or changes. You have to admit Anthony has some great ideas. I agree with the saying “Kids are our future.” We must support them and make sure that they make the right decisions. Don’t forget to vote for Anthony he becomes president!

Fairy Street Mama Since this is an election year, I wanted to ask the question, “If you were president, what type of changes would you make? I found a young man that says he would make changes right away. “If I was president, I would make the world come together. I would have a law that schools would only have classes for six (6) hours a day too. I would like to see more jobs available especially for those that sleep on the streets. If I were president, I would like to see kids playing more educational games so they can learn more. I think President Obama is a good president but if I was president, I would make a lot of changes.” Anthony Jones, II 10 yrs old – 5th grade Fairy: I hear you President Jones! Children don’t

Fairy Street Mama: “What Activity do you participate in and why?” Parents & Grandparents (myself included) love to see our off-springs participate in the band, speech, judo, sports, praise dance, drill team, mime, tap, choir, debate, chess……..Whew! The list goes on and on! The point is…we love our kids and we want to make sure they grow up to be, well - educated adults. I spoke with a few kids in an effort to find out what makes them remain active and interested in their particular activity? I

got some good answers and this young man stood out! ”I play football! Participating in sports affects my life because I know that one day football will change my life! Maybe I’ll even get a chance to go to the NFL! I would want to help my family if I go to the pro’s. Playing football really does motivate me! Playing football also helps to keep me in shape physically. My parents will only let me play if I’m making good grades. I’m working hard to make sure that I continue making good grades and I don’t have discipline problems. I really thank my parents and grandparents for encouraging me to keep playing football and James Foster, IV supporting me when I have games! I love my family and I thank them for helping me to become 12 yrs old–6th grade the man that will make them proud.” Fairy: I’m sure your family is already proud of you James! Keep up the great work! I pray that all kids find a activity that you enjoy. Remember to play safe and play fair. Do your best in all that you do. The late Dr. Gordon told me to “Put God first in your life and you’ll always be a success!”

CONGRATULATIONS! Your VOTE made the difference!

Just a Bite with Lorie at La Calle Doce L th p A so w ta a ta eat

By Lorie Blair It was a wonderful morning. The weather was exceptionally warm for the first Sunday in November. Wasn’t in a rush to Lorie get anywhere and I had wonderful company, my best friend. We were just enjoying ourselves when we found ourselves at La Calle Doce in Oak Cliff, one of his favorite eating locations. La Calle Doce is translated to The Twelve Street in English. Cute, since it is on 12th Street. This restaurant is family owned and we were at the original location. This location is a converted house that has lots of personality and a wonderful location to have private functions. There is patio seating up front, a courtyard in the back and loads of rooms for all party sizes throughout. Service has always been wonderful and today was no exception. Victor our server was patient and attentive. He made sure we knew what options were available and gave us all the choices written on the menu and the ones we made up. He served with a smile and never seemed far away. We wanted for nothing! My date was happy sitting in front of the televisions with a football game on sharing the current events from the newspaper while I studied the menu trying to decide what I was going to eat. It could not be too spicy, not too greasy and not too

chewy. I got it! I haven’t had a chile relleno in a long time so I order the Chile Relleno de Mariscos. A pablano pepper stuffed with shrimp and scallops half covered in ranchero sauce and half in cheese sauce. That was a choice we made up and I could not wait for it to be served. Although chips and salsa was served I wanted the main dish. The meal starts with your choice of beans or soup; fish or tortilla. And the dish itself has the best Spanish rice. It has corn not tomatoes in it. The chile relleno did not appear to be covered with breading and then deep fried and it was absolutely refreshing! The shrimp and scallops were fresh and prepared in what appears to be a cream sauce. The ranchero sauce is not too strong with tomatoes, the cheese sauce is very mild and the chile relleno was not greasy at all. Wow!! Perfectly prepared and presented! Did I just write a few weeks ago that Tex Mex was not one of my favorites…. Hmmmm, maybe I need to rethink this position. La Calle Doce I now know why my husband loves your food. This dish was pleasing to the palate and does not take Just a Bite out of the wallet. Two thumbs up and a big smile! La Calle Doce / 415 W 12th / Dallas, TX 75208 / 214-941-4304 /

Toya Nash leads acting workshop Toya Nash, Dallas native, actor and founder of Coach Your Craft acting and voice workshops taught a special Coach Your Craft acting workshop at St. Anthony Community Center in South Dallas on October 12. The donated acting workshop included a 3-hour introductory acting class for 25 students from grades 3 – 8. The students explored characters and expression, using basic Stanislavsky, Meisner, and Stella Adler acting techniques and then applied what they learned in scenework and improvisation exercises. “I believe so strongly in giving back to the Dallas community -I grew up here and my home is here now, so I was thrilled to have the opportunity to donate this special acting workshop to the St. Anthony Community Center which is so vital to the South Dallas community,” said Ms. Nash. “Every student participated -- which is so rare – and they really enjoyed the scenework and improvisation exercises. It was

amazing to see them grasp so much in just one workshop and St. Anthony is doing such a great job of preparing their students for the future. “ The goal of Coach Your Craft is to teach students important acting skills while providing a fun experience that’s positive and encouraging. Nash will be returning to St. Anthony Community Center on Friday, November 16 for another acting workshop where the students will be working on more scenework ad monologues. St. Anthony Community Center is located in south Dallas in a lowincome area and is affiliated with St Anthony School which serves over 300 students focusing on curriculum, innovative instruction and parent and community involvement. St. Anthony strives to create an environment based upon academics that encourages students to become active lifelong learners who understand that people with their differences can also be right. St. Anthony

Community Center provides after school programs that enhance and enrich the lives of their students. Currently serving 50 students, the community center also offers a full nutritious meal (supper) after school for all students in the program. For more info, please visit Born and raised in Dallas, Nash has taught acting to children, teens, and adults in a variety of community and academic settings, including the acclaimed Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in New York City. She is the founder of Coach Your Craft, a coaching company for voice and acting offered to children and adults who have an interest in acting performance and for those who simply have an interest in performing or speaking in front of others. One of the things she loves most about teaching is the cross-pollination of ideas and resource. Nash holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Acting from the prestigious Actors Studio Drama School in Manhattan.
