From the Editors Desk Praise the Lord! Thanking God for this opportunity to be able to publish another copy of Gospel 4 U Magazine. One thing that the Lord has shown me in this season is that it takes the influence of God to move to another dimension, the influence of God is what some call the favor of God, and as long as you have a open mind you shall be Blessed. According to TD Jakes, he quoted, “By submitting yourself to God’s will and recognizing your need to know more, you avail yourself of an open mind with endless opportunities. When you have an open mind, you are no longer bound by the opinions of others, and your success is inevitable. By learning to trust God, you will turn your fears into faith, and dispel all limitations!”
doing the will of the Father, and using the tools that He has equipped us with.

Mauris purus. Donec est nunc
Just like we transition between change in seasons in the spiritual, we also transition in the natural. As you know, we are slowly coming to the end of the summer season and moving forward into fall. With new seasons, come new opportunities, desires, and fashion outlooks.
This upcoming fall season is very distinctive and bold! The power colors this season: Oxblood, Pink, Colbalt Blue, Green, White, and Red. Combo colors: White/Black, and Black/Blue.
The summer season brought power colors mint green, blue, purple, and tropical punch colors including coral, orange, and pinks. Maxi print dresses/skirts played a big part this season, Tribal and floral prints made a large impact. Colored skinny High neck lines drape us, along with jeans were a favorite and neon color provided contrasting collars. Baroque, excitement. bohemian and plaid prints ripped the runways. Jumpsuits, pantsuits and The rage for summer was the "colorblock military themed jackets are here trend" Beauty trends for summer called for bold to suit our fancy! red or pink lips, metallic eye colors, along with winged eyeliner. Bold and pastel nail colors were a hit. Accessories provided the needed refreshment for all of our outfits! Trendy totes, transparent styles, and micro clutches were a treat. Shoe lovers had metallic designs, wedges, pointy toe, and studded styles to look forward to. Last but not least, every girl's desire.... Jewelry !! Sea-inspired designs made a splash this summer, while multi-layer necklaces and large bangles/cuffs brought out the bold in us. Chandelier earrings and tribal jewelry also made a statement.
Glitter, sequins and leather will let your presence be known along with oversized patterned coats and sweaters. Accessories call for deliciously colored satchel bags in bold colors. Mini back packs add to casual looks and clutches make a nice catch. Your jewelry selections for fall are just as delectable! Brooches, statement jewelry, chunky cuffs, and neon colors add pop. Iridescent and metallic colored shoes grace the runway this season. Studded designs and Mary Janeâ€™s are still going strong. Equestrian and fringe style boots allow you to stop traffic! Rosy cheeks and Dark stained lips are a beauty fave for fall. Jewel-tone eyecolors, such as blues, purples and greens draw attention. Take your pick, between glam or natural looks, they are both in. Paint the town with dark nail colors or colored french manicures! Remember just as seasons change and new things take form, don't be afraid to break the norm and add a new fashion trend into your wardrobe. Incorporate a new style of clothing, or a different color eye shadow. As you transition between seasons, remember you are not changing who you are but merely enhancing who you are. In order to know what positively enhances your beauty, you have to truly know the vessel you possess. Beauty is not defined by one particular look, but by many creative looks that display the essence of who the woman really is. Model, Lauren Hutton once said "Fashion is what you are offered four times a year by designers and style is what you choose". So choose trends that reflect your own unique individuality and show the world the style you

Mr. & Mrs Lawrence & Ayanna Moore (The Power Couple) Married August 25, 2012 and it as a Joyous occasion. God is doing a new thing in this season of their lives and they are getting ready to launch their new Church, Empowerment Life Changing Worship Center-NJ 1501 Oakland Avenue Millville, NJ Bible Study starting every Thursday at 7:00 PM The first service kicks off on October 7, 2012 at 11:00 AM
Except the LORD build the house, they labor in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. (Psalm 127:1, NKJ) This was the scripture I lived and made my decisions by, The House of Kasin has everything to do with my creativity in the fashion world, and it covers fashion and interior decorating. I love what I do, I knew from an early age what I wanted to do, always sketching, wrapping dolls in scraps of cloth or rearranging my mom’s dresser, only to discover one can get paid for it, I guess this what the scripture means “A man's gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men" (Prov. 18:16). And it did, I had the privilege to work for designers I saw in magazines as a child, Bob Mackie, Hugo Boss to name a few, over the years. As a trained Visual Merchandiser/Stylist and Wedding Decorator for the past 18 years, I have come to realize that God gives us ways to spread His Word and to show Himself mightily in our lives. Make sure you represent Christ in your work, never forget who gave you the gift/s. I assure you as silly as it sounds, before decorating or styling, I pray before I begin tackling a job and the ideas that come my way are “divine”. There are a lot of business out there that are owned by Christians and He is nowhere near running the ship. So I thank the Lord for His divine intervention and the gift of creativity that He has given me.
I am currently working on another aspect of the business which is making and distributing dĂŠcor to bridal and executive suites in resort hotels. Still in the infancy stage, the kinks are still being worked out for MKS Designs (a division of The House of Kasin). Be encouraged that when God is in your business, you are not laboring in vain, use the opportunity to minister and let your light shine. Check out some of our designs below and my Polyvore and contact us for your next event or Fashion makeover.

Leading a team of 10,000 after 7 months of being partnered with them, she broke record of becoming the first in the state of North Carolina to achieve this rank.

Lenika developed her technique and niche for creating recordbreaking revenue through her approach in internet marketing.

Lenika produced 9 Presidential leaders with some producing six-figures in revenue. She and her team produced millions of dollars for the company, being top earners. She taught many people to go from literally no income to making 4 and 5 figure monthly checks.
With her nurturing spirit & caring heart she exemplified the Fruit of the Spirit while interacting with others. It is her belief that everyone was created in God's image and that ALL are a beautiful in His sight. While staying at home, she realized that many women were able to pursue their dreams of becoming successful entrepreneurs while at the same time being at home with their children. She helped many people, men and women start on their very own journey to becoming successful entrepreneurs. Her success went to another level when God lead her to do a 21 day fast.

Lenika also has produced several products, including a DVD titled “How to Explode your business on Facebook.” Being highly sought after in the Network Marketing Industry, Lenika is scheduled to launch Network Marketing Coaching, teaching others how to excel and make millions like herself in the Network Marketing field and also how to brand and build successful teams. It is her prayer that the Holy Spirit will touch those that will read this portion of her bio and that talents, gifts, visions, dreams and destiny’s will either be unlocked, birthed or excel to higher heights and deeper depths. She firmly believes that everyone has such a great level of greatness within and in this life we can be our own enemy "The Inner Me.” It is for that reason that Lenika Scott is raising the bar and causing others to dream again.

Divine Diamonds Ministries’ “Wisdom Speaks” LIVE! 2012 National Tour Makes its Grande Finale stop in The City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia, PA! Wisdom Speaks Live! is hosted by none other than, Prophetess Lougenia “Trailblazer” Rucker of Divine Diamonds Ministries. This is the 2nd Annual ApostolicProphetic gathering for men and women for divine inspiration, edification and personal prophetic ministry. (Psalm 73:24). This LIVE 1-day Tour launched and advanced out of Atlanta in July, moved northbound through Wilmington, DE in August, and is scheduled to make the GRAND FINALE stop in Philadelphia, PA on September 29th with divine momentum for a SPECTACULAR, MASSIVE manifestation of God's glory. Testimony: ....."For all of you who did not come out to this awesome service; let me tell you that you missed an awesome move of God!!! There are not enough words in my vocabulary to tell you of the way God moved and the miracles that were wrought in this service. I came in looking for God to move on His Own and He did above and beyond what I could have ever thought that He would do. Souls were delivered, people found the answers to questions that have gone for great periods of time without answers; people were restored and I was personally ushered into the birthing of the huge baby that God impregnated me with. With the help of the bodacious Diamond Midwives, I was able to birth forth what God has had laying within me, awaiting the right time for delivery. God Himself pulled me forward, out of the dark depths of the cave that was there to protect me from the elements but also served as a place of imprisonment and stagnation. The Lord placed angels in place to adorn me as only a King can adorn His children. Please do not miss the move of God on September 29th. Come out with expectation and allow God to bless you as only He can. WALK INTO YOUR DESTINY with the confidence of God!!!! God bless each of the Diamonds who allowed God to divinely use you to minister to me".......Apostle Brenda
