What Your Clothing Says About You! AN

INTERVIEW

WITH

We can’t help it! We want the latest and greatest . . . even if it’s not our style or size. We will squeeze-in, suck-in, pooch-out and scrunch-up our toes, into the chic-est of clothing, to be in step.  Could all these contortions possibly be healthy?  You bet! Your subconscious is your secret weapon accessory for 2017 even though she’s tucked deep down inside your mind.  

“Every choice you make from fashionista to sweat city, she’s your guide”

KIM

FRIEDMUTTER

Fashion proves we are aware, relevant and yes, financially fit. We love our favorite designers; our inbox go-to’s; our reward for accomplishment and they are way less demanding then family.   In fact, the love we receive from fashion can rival our human connections.   Ask yourself, were Dolce & Gabbana at more of your events than your siblings?  Did Rick Owens keep you warm last winter, Victoria Beckham cool in the summer? Did Stella McCartney brand you “Queen” when you totally royaled-it-up?  

Each time you buy clothes that just aren’t ‘you’, it’s your subconscious egging you on. She has a sense of humor you know, so the next time you reach for an outfit that has your friends doubling over, be the first one laughing.

We move toward what feels good. Great clothing attracts great compliments and who doesn’t love feeling like a rock star?  At least (4) times a year like manna from

“Retail therapy is about the quick hit; it’s the fix!”

We are wardrobe warriors. When we walk into a room, our choices scream who we are, or at least who we feel like being.  What is the link that drives us to share our inner selves so publicly, using fashion?

out and look great doing it!

The next time you minimize your shopping experience to simply finding something to wear, be mindful. There is a plan set in motion deep inside yourself to be all that you can be, one thread at a time.

Girl Power Women Who Are Making a Difference without Judgement Will Change the World

According to the average women support survey only 2 out of 20 women will support one another. In the black community only 1 out of 20 women will attempt to try.

by Ms. Lawrence

According to professional speaker SharRon Jamison, grief expert Vernessa Blackwell, and book authors Sharon Bennett & Beatrice Moore -- "It is so important for us to support one another without judgement. We all have our flaws." During Soar Women's Empowerment Summit in Milwaukee, WI. the group of women met in glee.

Women in male-dominated industries often adopt what they consider to be “masculine” behaviors in order to get ahead, and many women make easier targets for bullies because they’re less likely than men to react. Add that to social conditioning that teach women to be judgmental from an early age, and you can see a roadmap for a bad work situation.

one negative.


"Invest in your travel fund and see the world as early as you can."

Cedric Nettles As a result I expected to win, as an author, film producer and HARK (now television producer) all from channeling my thoughts and interaction with others into positive energy. Anytime I had pushy and stress laden manager trying to advise me, the energy was almost always interrupted and I had to press harder. So if we are proactive in staving off negative energy which we all can perceive on a high level, peace and tranquility is a welcomed byproduct.


Direction of Peace AN INTERVIEW WITH FILM DIRECTOR CEDRIC NETTLES Feeling at peace with others is important because people are not going anywhere. We all are products of our own experiences and perceptions and we can not control others to fit the mold we want them to be in. Yet, we can control our reactions to other people’s perspective. We have to give people space to be who they are without trying to assimilate them into our world view. By doing this, we will attract the right relationships and can learn from other’s differences. I am believer that we should grow inside out in a world that teaches the contrary. We have to work through our own biases and unrealistic expectations of others. Those same wealthy mentor’s ‘parables’ scream in my head to this day. They said you don’t get what you want, you get what you expect. If you plant harmony, peace, and fairness it will be sent to you multiplied. Your expectations shifts to obtaining peace of mind. So why not plant good things? 

Remember these 3 things. Never partner with people who loathe and resent you, that is not a spirit coming from above. Anyone who does not have the foresight to see your favor as a benefit for them is not for your consumption.They have to be able to handle seeing you be blessed. If they loathe you and have a problem with your blessings, they may have a problem with the source of those blessings...Run!! Secondly, let them go. These people served the purpose they were supposed to in that season. Finally, never think you are not educated enough or good enough by stacking yourself against others who seemed more qualified. Your geographic location, education, and social status is laughable to God. He is looking for someone like you to show who He is through your gifts that seemed to be getting ignored. Your grit level superseded anyone's education level if they are unwilling to match it. That is why you get favor, you went hard with the right intent. Go with all your might, and He will bless you.

TIME MAKES A DIFFERENCE

GOD'S TIMING IS ON TIME By Tam Lawrence Photo by Tam Lawrence

Everything we do is marked by the steady march of time. Seconds lead to minutes to hours to days to weeks to years to decades to centuries. The problem for all of us is that the clock is always running the wrong way, and we simply cannot stop its precipitous crawl toward the next tick. We lose moments to the past, out of our reach, never to be regained. Where did all the years go? The kids have grown and gone. We're muddling along in a career, making a living, just existing out of habit more than anything. NOMADIC

WHAT TIME IS IT? MAKE TIME MATTER AN INTERVIEW WITH TAM LAWRENCE BY EXPOSURE-MAGAZINE PUBLISHER

Did I miss out on my chance to make a difference? The Greek language has a couple of words that mean "time." The first is most familiar—chronos . It means the chronology of days, governed by the carefully calculated earths' sweep around the sun. God himself ordained this measurement of days on the fourth day of Creation, spinning the heavenly lights "for seasons, and for days and years." Boy, do I know about time. The wrinkles etched on my face; the wrinkles etched on my heart are the visual reminders of chronos. But another word for time is also used in the New Testament—kairos . This speaks more to specific, Godordained times throughout history, sometimes called the "right time" or "appointed season" (Titus 1:3). Kairos is God's dimension—one not marked by the

This godly kairos pierced its way into creation at just the right time, slicing through chronos with a cry of a baby in a manger. The cross was another kairos moment. Romans 5:6 says, "For while we were still helpless, at the right time, Christ died for the ungodly." Kairos moments then—and now—allow us to get a glimpse of the "other side." We peek around the corner at eternity. We actually glimpse how God works. As the omniscient, omnipresent Deity, God is not bound by the confines of space or time. That's why He flows into our existence when we least expect Him. When we ask for something right away, it might not always come. Or when we don't ask at all. But he shows up. It can be frustrating, "with the Lord one day is as a thousand years." It can also be surprising "a thousand years as one day." (2 Pet 3:8).

past, the present, or the future.

When Jesus came, it was a fulfillment of promises past, a cosmic collision of the sacred and secular. It was an intersection of the holy will of God and the stubborn ways of man. It was a perfect moment. John the Baptist said in Mark 1:15 that "time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand."

We should always live our days looking for those moments, those inexplicable times when His will and his way intersect with our daily walks. And they can happen anytime! A friend calls you out of the blue to give a good word. A child's innocent joy pierces a long, hard day of struggle. A coworker takes a moment to lend a hand. God is always surprising us with his perfect, kairos timing. Am I ready, waiting, and watching for him to move in my life?

THE CHURCH IS A HOSPITAL

pastors can be sick too I recently shared my story as a survivor of sexual violence with a pastor whom at the time I respected his work. I was completely fooled by his mischievous curated questions and his shiny suit. According to a vast number of church-goers "Remember pastors are human and they can make mistakes," ~ you can't argue with that.   It's today's condescending quote used by pastors and church-ed folk~ to excuse foolishness in the pulpit.

The Church is an E.R. room with an increasing number of false prophets performing the art of manipulation I recently met a pastor who stated, "It's how I make my money!" Maybe you’ve been in this situation or another where a pastor is in error. You expect someone to say something but the whole church just “Amens” and agrees with him. It’s almost like you are an alien or you woke up in the “Twilight Zone”—cue  the creepy music.

Not only are the church members tolerant of the pastor and his or her antics but also there is no one from the broader leadership community calling the pastor out. Continued

I am writing a new book called, "Steps of Deception: Become a Pastor Today! With no Money Down.".


In the Black Church it is popular to give leaders a free pass. Usually when someone dares to speak out against someone in ministry they are quick to hear “Touch not mine anointed” or “Don’t put your mouth on the man of God.” The idea is that God calls the preacher/pastor and therefore he is answerable only to God. Therefore there is no accountability between him/her and the congregation or other pastors. Having been in the pastor role myself I believe that we should give pastors the respect they deserve because it is a tiresome and demanding job to shepherd a faith community.

WHO'S LEADING WHO

At the same time, I think that when the pastor breaks some of the standards for a Christian leader outlined in the New Testament (1 Timothy 3:1-7, Titus 1:59) someone should call them to account for their actions. Read more about my encounter with the pastor in May's issue written by Tam Lawrence

From Indie to Published As the number of self-published authors continues to rise, many will find themselves locked out of the actual book business. In most cases, the industry will label a self-published author under what we call, "vanity or novelty writer." Whereas published authors are seen as creditable and official writers. As a result, those authors who label themselves self-published ~ limit themselves. It is well known that doctors should never operate on

members of their own family, and that a client who acts as his own lawyer has a fool for a client.

Another, problem is loss of objectivity. In the case of self-publishing, authors can be so caught up in the writing of their book that they protect sentences or paragraphs or even whole chapters that an editor would recommend cutting.

The authors are too close to their work. They are reading it for themselves, whereas the editor is reading it for potential buyers. I am all for empowering authors and trust me, I know that self-publishing gets a bad rap for good reasons. I am not blind to all the book spam and authors who write ONE book and camp on top of it for the next five years selling to anyone who looks at them. All types of publishing have corresponding strengths and weaknesses and this is a decision only the writer can make. Not all writers are suited for self-publishing. Not all books are good for traditional.

one’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.

PUBLISHER TAM LAWRENCE Self-publishing can be an appealing option, but success is hard to come by.

The ease of digital publishing is also a major drawback for writers trying to gain attention.

While it's tempting, it's still tough to make a living on self-published works. Most of the books sell fewer than 150 copies, The New York Times reported earlier this year.

"There's this tsunami of swill on Amazon now that it's harder and harder for readers to find a good book because there's so much to have to slog through."

When you go through a publisher, they have an established platform for you to launch from. Their connections to major publications make it easier to get your book publicized to larger audiences.

Most importantly, Literary prizes and critical acclaim are more likely through traditional publishing and many literary prizes aren’t even open to indie authors.
