Living with An Attitude of Gratitude WITH OUR FOUNDER


"my smile is my ministry"

"I am really who and what I say I am. I simply do not have the time or energy to be anyone else. God  did not make any mistakes with my divine design"    You can expect to meet the exact same woman face to face that you see on social media or may have listened to on a slew of teleconferences over the past 8 years. M.E.Porter is REAL! 

In a sea of fakes and phonies, you are blessed if and when you have the honor of meeting Dr. M.E. Porter or "M.E.", as she known among friends and colleagues. One tells of the day she met M.E. at a large women's event in Atlanta, Ga. "There were about 200 women in attendance, all dressed for the occasion of business - suit, stilettos and faces that were beat to the Gods (a dramatic way of saying the make up was awesome). Yet amid the suits and shoes, stood one 5 ft. 3 in. brown-skinned  lady, boldly wearing a t-shirt, jeans and bright pink tennis shoes, no make up to be detected, yet her smile was the brightest in the room." That my friends is M.E. Porter, never afraid to be exactly who God allows her to be! 

The Hole in The Wall is what law enforcement called the called the drug ridden neighborhood in Central New Jersey - a place that was so feared by outsiders that Domino's would not deliver and the U.S. servicemen and women at nearby Fort Dix and McGuire AFB would be punished for being caught in The Hole. 

Yet this is the place where she learned about love, loyalty, God and family. The families that lived in The Hole were family,  some through blood and some through bonding, but it was safe place to grow and become. NOT perfect by any means there were lots of drugs, prostitution, as a result of the drugs, alcohol, profanity and violence, but it was a safe place to become a solider in the Army of The Lord. 

I grew up not having much in the way of material Add subheading wealth, but what did have was community. I was blessed with the knowing  of what family really meant.

"My babysitters were the drug king pens. I would climb in bed between the man and his wife  and sleep well because it was a place of safety for me." When asked if she understood the environment she grew up in, Dr. Porter replies, "I understood that we were different, but in my mind being different meant that we were better than those on the outside, because all of them seemed to spend most of their time and money in my neighborhood!" 

Childhood rape and molestation have plagues our communities for far too long . It is time to tell the stories and heal our souls. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. Psalm 147:3

"My first experience with not having a voice was when I was 5 years old. I remember how heavy his body felt on top of mine - it took my breath away. It was that moment that silence me for next 30 years" M.E. Porter

"Rape changes your view of yourself after the rape  I saw myself  as flawed" I was only 5 years old, but I knew that something had been lost, something inside of me has changed and I suddenly felt like my very existence was wrong." 

Dr. Porter Speaks very candidly  about this childhood  tragedy,but not as a defeated victim, she tells of  knowing that her rapist  desired to kill her once he realized what he had done. She watched him  lift the pillow in the air and begin to move towards her, but she did not feel fear.   Instead, she felt peace and the presence of God, as she had her very first encounter with her angelic host.    The angel stood at the foot of her bed weeping.   And it was there  at 5 years old that Marilyn met the God she would serve.

Family Matters Dr. Porter with her 3 daughters. left,  Lt. Misha J. Dantzler  right, Charity D. Wilson  bottom, Christina D Wilson 

My daughters mean the world to me. Being a Mom changed my value on life in general. Motherhood made me want to be a better person, an example to my children and all of the other children whose lives I would touch because of being their Mommy. I had several miscarriages before I was able to birth a living child, so I have never taken motherhood lightly! My God and My Girls are my life!  I am grateful for their lives. 

"Of the many titles that I wear

MOM is the most cherished"

The Coach

"Wisdom and teaching has always been natural to my life, I did not become a coach, I merely began using the title that defined something that I was born to be"

Coaches ask great questions, Dr. Porter is no exception, in fact she may be the rule!  Known for asking questions that not only provoke her clients to thought but to absolute change. Being closely led by The Spirit, she gives each client the opportunity to seek out the answers that are necessary for their growth and advancement. 

Q:Dr.Porter What would you say to those who say as a minister, you do not  belong in the marketplace? Ministry is that thing we do that enhances the world around us, much like what I call our genius. The marketplace is as much a space to shine as the pulpit, when it comes to change!

the ministry THE MANDATE 9 Then the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me “I have put my words in your mouth. 10 See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.” Jeremiah 1:9-10  (NIV)


"Ministry is whatever The Most High God has designed you to do well in the earth, to be a blessing to others and give Him glory - well this is the M.E. Porter definition."

Until the desires of my heart were the very ones the HE placed there, my voice was quieted. I am grateful!

This is where my official ministry journey began, although it had been spoken many years before, that God would use the very mouth After 10 years silent, 1 divorce and that most considered slick tongued and a 3rd child, I was ready to do it HIS disrespectful, to preach The Gospel. way! He called me to begin a ministry on social media - at the time I did Friendship A.M.E. Church, Rev. Eleanor Melton not even have a Facebook account! But spoke those words when I was just 18 years I was obedient. In less than a month old - I am 48 now.  But, ARISE! was my first the page has over 8000 followers and attempt to walk in my calling and ARISE! there was a full team to assist taught me that ministry and integrity are a running the page, the soon morphed marriage that should not be torn apart. My into a weekly ministry call and character was not developed enough to sustain finally into a book collaboration of the call on my life. I was disobedient, and survivor testimonies titled HERstory in an instant ARISE! was gone and I was Reveals His Glory. silenced in ministry for 10 years.  Silence did not mean dormant, I was always doing work that helped others while glorifying God, but my place was not in the forefront. God loves me too much to have allowed me to GROW through the character building process in the public eye, and He shielded with me under His wings until my actions were in alignment with my words and my words were in alignment with HIS will. 

There has never been a moment when I was not in service to The Father and now I am blessed and honored to be the pastor and founder of The Pink Pulpit Crusade International. Yes you guessed it, this magazine is a direct result of The Pink Pulpit . 

WHAT IS MY GRA-TITUDE? My attitude towards gratitude. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18

1. Do I always find something to be        grateful for?  2. Do I take the daily blessings, like       air and water for granted? 3. Do I tell God "Thank You", even when     time are tough? 4. Am grateful in this very moment? 5. What/Who are you most grateful for?

Pearls of Wisdom “Gratitude’s Remembrance”

You hope and your prayed for that ‘thing’ you have now. That new home, new car, new job, or even your spouse. God poured out His blessing, and you received it well; Even though it did not manifest the way you envisioned—don’t dwell.

Angela Edwards

Give God the GLORY, HONOR, and PRAISE! Lift up your voice; set Heaven ablaze With your gratefulness for  God’s blessing of ‘NOW’. Remember: There’s more glory to come—that’s His promise… His vow.

LACHANISTA101: Always look EVERYWHERE. Fashion just needs to be FOUND, not financed!  There is no need to go broke to look good. Home and Gardens for florals and beading Home Depot for chain belts and links Children’s stores for novelty and trend wear

Fashion Forward L. Chanel  Thompson - The Fashion Hack

You can miss out on fashion finds shopping in sized based stores and sized based sections within stores. Fashion can be found anywhere at any time.  I remember when I was pregnant with my eldest son.  I was putting together an outfit in my head and I needed a specific blouse, but I could no longer button the one I had – baby bump would not let me be great.  So, I went to a “plus” size store and the representative looked at me strange.  I asked for a blouse and then she asked the question:  Is this a gift?  And that opened the door for me to share my gift.  I told her exactly what I intended to do with the blouse and she was amazed, especially since the blouse was on sale.

" FASHION is everywhere,  but STYLE  and the ability to style  anything from anywhere  is a gift, one of my gifts from God. " Do you know what your gift is?  Do you use your gift everywhere and anywhere?  I had found the completing piece to my outfit AND I knew I had planted a seed.  That’s how God uses our gifts to bless others.  They see the exterior, they are making assumptions, they are making judgments, yet they are drawn to something about it, and then we give them what He put in us. But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected  him. The LORD does not look at the  things people look at. People look at the outward appearance,  but the LORD looks at the heart.”  1 Samuel  16:7 NIV

Girlfriend Theology A WORD of Advice

Pastor Denise Elbert

What are the biblical grounds for divorce? This is one of those questions that when most of us ask, we usual have an answer we WANT to hear, so it’s good for us to go to the WORD of GOD for the answer! The bible gives two reasons for divorce, 1. Sexual immorality (Matthew 5:32; 19:9) and 2. Abandonment by an unbeliever (1 Corinthian 7:15). Even though these are grounds, that doesn’t mean that you have to divorce or that it is encouraged. I think I hear some opinions out there – wait a minute, what about the spouse that is being abused? Abuse is not grounds for divorce. I’m not saying stay in harm’s way, by all means get to safety! That is the first step. This would be followed by confession, forgiveness, reconciliation, and restoration are always the next steps in an abuse scenario and the first steps in the biblical reasons. Divorce should only be viewed as a last resort, because God hates divorce (Malachi 2:16).  Got a question? Ask it here:

celebrating women's history month HONORING MINISTRY MAVENS Interview by  Pastor  Denise Elbert

Reverend Lisa B. Davis When asked, “How are you?” Her response is always the same ‘Blessed and highly favored’!


If there is a woman that I can call my mother-in-ministry, sister, pastor and most of all lovingfriend, it is the person of the Reverend Lisa B. Davis! Rev Lisa, as I call her, is truly ‘all that’ and more to me! I still remember the evening in 2001, when she sat in my car in the parking lot of the Layton K-mart and exclaimed, “Lord, you’ve sent me another Iady preacher!” I remember just gazing at her as she proceeded to say… “if you were A.M.E. I’d swoop you up and get your training started”! It was the beginning of a blessed relationship.


celebrating women's history month

HONORING MINISTRY MAVENS Currently, Rev Lisa calls Evans, Georgia home and I’ve asked this ministry maven a few questions for us to gain some insight to her life and thoughts. Pastor Denise: What is your favorite scripture? Rev. Lisa: I don’t have a particular scripture, I am fond of the Psalms. Pastor Denise: The scripture given to me at the time of my calling is, Timothy 4:2, with an emphasis on BE READY! Do you have a scripture that describes your ministerial call? Rev. Lisa: I’m not even sure how to answer this question…. It was a bit overwhelming because in my last six months of undergrad, God called me to the preaching ministry, it’s really more involved than this! Pastor Denise:  What is your strongest personal quality?

Rev. Lisa: My strongest personal quality is my ability to love everybody Pastor Denise: If you had a chance for a ‘do over’ in life, what would you do differently? Rev. Lisa: Honestly, I’m not sure I’d do anything differently. It I have to give an answer I’d say my early years. Pastor Denise: What does love feel like to you? Rev Lisa: I’m not really sure. (chuckle) I haven’t been in love in a long time but I love being in love with somebody, it felt really good and then loving what I do feels really good.

INTEGRITY Unless you are one of those people that enjoy offending or hurting others – living a life that is free of “little white lies” and/or exaggerations can be a struggle. It requires a great deal of courage – the ability to do that which is frightening or extremely uncomfortable. Living among emotionally charged humans with the intention to live in full on integrity can be gut-wrenching, however; it can be done. It may not be the easiest task (at least not in the beginning), but with consistent practice you can be a person clothed in integrity – the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness. Righteousness (right standing) is synonymous with integrity and it is an absolute must for those who intend to live in integrity, free of drama, and have consistent success in any area of their lives. Without integrity failure is eminent; marriages, friendships, business partnerships and relationships of every sort will fold when the participants are do not engage in consistent and authentic integrity.


So, how do we as mere humans become courageous enough to live lives of integrity? There is that word again, courageous – the late Dr. Maya Angelou said, “Courage is the most important of all the virtues for without it you cannot consistently carry out the others – and so we know that courage is in the formula of integrity. Here are 5 steps that can be taken to get to a life of integrity:

1.    Be more concerned with pleasing God, that people. People pleasers struggle with integrity because innately they want to be liked, loved and respected by the people they please. 2.     Be honest with yourself. People who live in perpetual denial of their own lives and circumstances find it nearly impossible to be in integrity with others. 3.     Be prepared to end relationships that REQUIRE you to be out of integrity. There are some people who want to hear lies and deception and simply will not accept your acts of integrity. These people are often bullies and abusers; toxic people.

Walk in Integrity You can identify them by their fruit, that is, by the way they act. Can you pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? Matthew 7:16

4.   Be as free with giving your love and you are in giving the truth – truth without love is brutality. You may have to extend a little extra love to those who are no accustomed to your new way, however, don’t ever apologize for operating in integrity. 5.     BE COURAGEOUS! Remain in right standing, even when you fear the outcome. When we operate out of integrity we force the people in our lives; to like, love and respect a person that we are not. By misrepresenting ourselves, we lie to others and we are often are left to nurse the wounds that are inflicted  emotionally and mentally when we are exposed; because without a doubt the real self will show up.  So, allow me to offer you this possibility; the people that matter the most, will like or love the people that we really are. And those that don’t like or love us, may at least respect us for being a people of strong integrity. Human beings are much more accepting of imperfection than we openly admit.  Without the stigmas and judgments attached to our flaws – which we foolishly create ourselves –

 we are more apt to accept one another than to reject each other. Nobody, I repeat, nobody likes to be the fool and when we act out integrity we remove the other person’s opportunity to engage with us in truth. You may be pleasantly surprised at what people can and will accept if we would just give them option to choose to be in integrity with us and not be fooled with lies and misrepresentations.

FROM THE PINK PULPIT Gabriel appeared to her and said,  “Greetings, favored woman! The Lord is with you!” Mary responded, “ I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.” And then the angel left her                Luke 41:28,38

Question Are you a strong woman or a blessed strong woman?

The Strength of a Blessed Woman Pastor Genae Kulah

Sermon Notes

There is a difference. Any woman with the sheer desire not to give up and presses through is a strong woman. A strong woman can be an atheist, a believer in the universe, a person who relies on self, or a person who has gone through so much hell that she has made an inner vow that she will never do that again and doesn’t. I am sure if we were to poll all the ladies reading this regarding overcoming obstacles in their lives we would be here for years. Because every woman has a story that is not all peaches and crème. Most of us may have grown up on the commercial with the woman declaring that she can do it all.  Peggy Lee’s I am a Woman.

I can wash out forty four pairs of socks and have 'em hangin' out on the line I can starch and iron two dozens shirts 'fore you can count from one to nine I can scoop up a great big dipper full of lard  from the drippin's can Throw it in the skillet, go out and do my shopping, be back before it melts in the pan 'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it again I can rub and scrub til this old house is shinin' like a dime Feed the baby, grease the car, and powder my face at the same time Get all dressed up, go out and swing 'til four A.M. and then Lay down at five, jump up at six, and start all over again 'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it again If you come to me sickly you know  I'm gonna make you well If you come to me all hexed up you know  I'm gonna break the spell If you come to me hungry you know I'm gonna fill you full of grits If it's lovin' you're likin, I'll kiss you and give you the shiverin' fits 'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it again I got a twenty dollar gold piece says there ain't nothing I can't do I can make a dress out of a feed bag and  I can make a man out of you

FROM THE PINK PULPIT The Strength of A Blessed Woman That is how the world views a strong woman. She can work, cook, and please her man. The main focus of this strong woman is “I” or self.  I can do this or I can do that because I have the strength to do it. But not so for the blessed strong woman.  

The Strength of a Blessed Woman She is blessed because she 1. Believes that all things are possible with God. I can do all things through Christ[a] who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 2. Looks to God for her strength. Â I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. Psalms 121:1 3. Expects persecution because favor aint fair. Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. I Peter 4:12-14 -I am sure Mary weighed the option of saying yes to the Lord. Who would believe her story? 4. Secure. She does not need validation from man about God told her. She does not need to be afraid. God said it and that settles it. And don't be afraid of the people, for I will be with you and will protect you. I, the LORD, have spoken! Jeremiah 1:8. 5. Silent. She knows that every action does not deserve a reaction. Every dog that barks does not need a bone. Mary pondered things in her heart. We get in trouble when we try to explain what is not explainable.

Gratitude Is An Anti-depressant I live in the south and before we can walk good, we are taught to say Thank You. So, it goes without saying that one of my coaching tools includes being grateful. People are searching for that magic pill or formula to take their life, their business, whatever their thing is, to the next level. I have not found any greater personal or career booster than the art of giving thanks. Gratitude is not just for the religious nor should it be classified as some “woowoo" act that has little to do with reality. Expressing gratitude brings into play a host of other emotions - feelings of charity and well being - that are all tremendously important to our mental and physical well being. Now expressing gratitude helps combat the low level, just not satisfied with life feeling making it an excellent “non pharmaceutical" antidepressant.

But here’s the thing, for it to be effective, expressions of gratitude must be continuous and it must be intentional. Expressing gratitude on a regular basis has been found to have a positive affect on moods. Positive feelings creep into the psyche of even the most hardhearted Scrooge. You’ve seen the movie, Scrooge was freed from the chains of depression and bitterness when he was forced to practice charity and to understand what he had to be thankful for. Optimism and hope become predominant reactions even when there are challenges. So, are you wondering what can you do to keep gratitude in your life? Here are a few things that could make a big difference:

Practice random acts of kindness #RAOK. Really! Smile more. Use those facial muscles for projecting the positive. Tell someone (or many) how they have made a positive change in your life. Why are you grateful to know them?

random acts of kindness

As with anything, you have a choice: you can ignore what you have to be grateful for, keeping it on the shelf until the Holidays, or you can regularly take stock of all that you have in the “wealth” category. Gratitude is the way to the best antidepressant. It’s not just for the Holidays. Show yours today and everyday. Each morning make a list of even the most trivial thing that you are grateful for. You can start with your best gift: being alive to face a brand new day. Write it down. When you actively write anything, it goes from the intangible to the tangible. Practice charity. Give time, talent or finances to those in need.

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;  you were bought at a price.  Therefore honor God with your bodies.                                                                                                                                               1 Corinthian 6:19-20



Excerpt from "Wholistic Women WIN!" Season 3: My Soul Says Yes


Surrender. Submit. Humble. Bow. Concede. Yield. The realization that you cannot win this fight without first surrendering – ceasing to resist the authority, submitting – accepting the superior force to the authority, humbling– showing a modest or low estimate of your own importance, bowing – cease from competition, conceding – admitting that you have been defeated and stop trying to win, yielding– giving up and stopping contention: all of these actions are the instruction arriving at “completely yes”.

Total complete surrender to the process of becoming fully me required that I would give myself over in whole to The Manufacturer and allow Him to make me over. So much of me had been maimed and brutalized in the battle while I fought in my own strength. My original design had been altered and only a yes from the soul space could give the Gentlemen Creator permission to come in and begin the process of restoration. My soul says “Yes” because life without the yes is unbearable. Life without the healing in my heart, without sound to my voice and without rest in my deepest places is hell. My soul says “Yes” because nothing else functions at optimum productivity without the completely yes –
