Dr. Betty Speaks Interview with Marilyn E. Porter
Transformation Life Coach Betty was born in Richmond County in Augusta, Georgia. She is a Georgia Peach, who currently resides in neighboring South Carolina with with her loving and devoted husband, Mr. Sidney Speaks. Where did your ministry story begin?
Website: www.bettyspeaks.com Facebook: www.fb.com/BettySpeaksLife
The Lord laid hands on me at the age of twelve. That’s when I became a believer. My life leaves me with no doubt that I am one of His sheep because I know His voice. He chose me. He called me. So I follow. I listen. I’ve been abused by so many things. I’ve seen and been exposed to so many things. There is nothing that a woman of today, yesterday, or tomorrow can tell me that I haven’t endured. Nothing.
Tell us about Betty Speaks about;The Woman, The Wife, The Minister, The Friend, The Sister, The Mother that is Betty Speaks? I am a woman who has had to create her own identity and go forth with her own journey. As a child, I got picked on because I didn’t have the same last name as my siblings. In the military, I had to work harder and do more, so others could see who I really was. I had to make men, of all ethnicity, see that the fact that I was an African American woman had no bearing on what I could sustain and uphold, what I was capable of. At every turn in my life, I was proving something about myself, to myself. Despite my different name, my different skin, I was still someone. I was still special. Because I created who I am. You don’t become this woman overnight nor by coincidence. You become her by circumstances and by choice. You become her by the call of God on your life.

Mr. & Mrs. Speaks
What had encouraged you in the tough time?
In 1996, I was thrust from a shower in Saudi Arabia when the building that housed me and my soldiers was bombed. The entire building crumbled above us, and while we were wounded, we survived. God kept me so that I could share my story with others so that they too can find peace and purpose in their pain. In 2013, I lost three women, three friends, and I almost caved. That was February 3, 2013, and it was a wake up call for me. I believe that if I had been closer to them, if I could have been their shoulder, their ear, that they would still be here today. I knew then that I had to stand up for my sisters. I had to stand for those who didn’t have a voice. To speak to and for them. I didn’t marry a man with the last name “Speaks” by coincidence. That is the name that I walked into. God had already determined who I was to be. I only had to choose to live it. We can choose who we are when we refuse to allow our “It” to stop us.
BETTY SPEAKS "IT"
Everyone goes through seasons of difficulty or times when things just seem cloudy. During these challenging times, know that you are not alone. Also, that I am seeds of Abraham therefore no matter how bad life gets, no matter what I have done, there is always hope. When life can't go any lower, the only direction it can go is UP. Reaming focus on having a genuine relationship with God. Crying out to him, knowing that he is alive in me, pray for those who are not praying for themselves and God will show them through works how to be loving and kind. Continue honor those appointed over me especially my mother and father in order that their days may be long. In Psalms 92:12, the Lord speaks about the palm tree. It’s a palm tree that is planted and flourishes, the tree of Lebanon that still grows, one that still bears fruit in spite of the wind and the rains.
In spite of the storms. In spite of the mental remnants of war and trauma. In spite of the domestic violence, the sexual abuse, or the divorce. In spite of whatever we’ve gone through, whatever our “It” has been, God is still encourages each and every one of us to flourish.
in her own words
"Thank you immensely!"
Dr. Betty Speaks Share a life lesson that would bless a younger woman. We are all seeds of Abraham therefore no matter how bad "IT" (life) gets, no matter what you have done, there is always hope. When life can't go any lower, the only direction it can go is UP. Remain focus on having a genuine relationship with God. Cry out to him, knowing that he is alive in you, pray for those who are not praying for themselves and God will show them through your works how to be loving and kind. Honor your mother and your father in order that their days may be long. Only God Himself fully appreciates the influences of a Christian mother in the molding of character in her children. I have often heard,. “Like mother, like children.”

Old habits are can often be hard to remove from our being. However, if you want to make way for changes, you need to begin looking at some of the habits which you have imbibed in your growing-up process. Aristotle once said that “we are what we repeatedly do. ” Your habits are the things that we repeatedly do, and these habits make up the very core and kernel of your personality. There are people whose negative habits far outweigh their positive habits, and one can say that they have a bad personality. Also, there are people who have more positive habits and can be term them as good people. It is also said that a person is virtuous if he or she has many virtues to be proud of.

Sprout in Overdrive It’s Spring time! The birds are chirping, flowers are blossoming and trees are growing new leaves. We are nonchalant about the process it takes for new life to emerge from the ground. We grasp the concept of seeds being planted and watered but it takes a little bit more to help them grow. The environment is what causes the seed to sprout. The process of “germination”, cause the seed to burst out of its coat because it is looking for nutrients, enzymes and water for its growth; the stem rise above looking for sunlight. This reflects how hungry the seed is to become what it is supposed to become.
How hungry are you? You have been the seed that God planted in the earth. He has been watering you while darkness surrounded you. Now it is time for you to sprout to get to your nutrients to help you grow that business, write the book, take the class and become an expert in your lane. You have been planted way to long. It’s alright; you’re rooted in God now. Move forward and put your sprouting in overdrive by next spring others will be able to watch you blossom.

One of the best ways to begin the process of expanding your brand and your message in a meaningful way is strategic partnerships. Ever wonder how the birds, bees, bugs and butterflies get along so very well in the Spring? I sure did, so I decided to research their habits and found a very unique common thread amongst them. Each and every one of them rely heavily on the other one’s expertise in pollination during the season. Within their own species they operate under specified guidelines keeping them sharp and performing at a high level. Meanwhile, other insects’ performance levels are fully enhanced by the hard work each unique bug-type displays. Have you considered crosspollination in your ministry? Take a moment and think of how many lives your ministry is currently transforming. Next, think of another woman in ministry and ask the same question of hers. Now, take a moment to process the transformative impact you can have together! During this new season upon us, imagine a new strategic alliance you can form that will have a long lasting impact on believers. Then take the necessary steps to change the world -together.

Have you read your word today?
Psalm 119:105 Â (KJV)
"Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."
LEAP into faith! LEAP into joy! God’s Word is nothing to play with; God’s Holy Word is not a toy. In Luke 6:23, we are told to REJOICE, For our GREAT reward is in Heaven. But remember always to forgive— Seventy times seven. LEAP into faith! LEAP into joy! God’s Word is nothing to play with; God’s Holy Word is not a toy.
In Revelation 21:5, Jesus promises To make EVERYTHING new one day. For now, He gives us the season Spring; The time of year when the rains wash the old away. LEAP into faith! LEAP into joy! God’s Word is nothing to play with; God’s Holy Word is not a toy. All things new! All will be well! Hold on to God’s unchanging hand, And give God the GLORY! Our Heavenly Father will NEVER fail!
“You make all things new. Yeah! You make all things new. I will follow you forward.” As I ponder on this month’s topic, this is the song of worship that comes to mind. As a young woman in Christ, I can admit that it is not easy to move forward from the comfortable places we tend to remain in. It is not popular to follow Christ and accept the “NEW” that He has for you. Although not easy or popular, it is possible and necessary! When you think of “new”, what comes to mind? I’ll tell you what I think of. New in Christ! New Identity! New Name! New Strength! New Grace! New Mercy! New Life! Don’t you want to experience all things new? Well, spring forward! In a world full of temptations and influences, we so easily become bound in a life unpleasing to God. Not only that, but unpleasing to ourselves. We may not admit to it, but this is truth. We want to change, but don’t believe there’s a definite way out. We attempt to change, but in our own strength. We begin to see change, but a storm comes our way. We fall and want to give up. Those that we surround ourselves with may not influence us to be better. We remain in a place of comfort, but no true satisfaction.
If only we would begin to recognize that God can and will do a new thing. He will make a way in the wilderness (when we are lost). He will create rivers in a desert (in the drought, God provides the rain). Isaiah 43:19 assures us that this new thing will spring forth. There is no doubt that when we move forward and begin to follow Christ, old things will pass away and things will become new. So, You! Yes, you are a new thing.A new creature. You have a new identity. You have a new name. Every morning, God blesses you will new grace and new mercy. Spring forward and live your new life! Don’t consider the things of old or your former ways. (Isaiah 43:18) Your mind is new! Your destiny is new! You are not bound, thanks to Christ. Be Free and be the New You! -B.A.D C.H.I.C.K
sermon notes with Pastor Genae Kulah
BREATHE: REVIVED FROM THE CAPTIVITY OF ACTIVITY “Write to the angel of the church in Ephesus: “The One who holds the seven stars in His right hand and who walks among the seven gold lampstands says: 2 I know your works, your labor, and your endurance, and that you cannot tolerate evil. You have tested those who call themselves apostles and are not, and you have found them to be liars. 3 You also possess endurance and have tolerated many things because of My name and have not grown weary. 4 But I have this against you: You have abandoned the love you had at first. 5 Remember then how far you have fallen; repent and do the works you did at first. Otherwise, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent. " Revelation 2:1-5
It is really easy to get caught up in the captivity of activity. We can become so obsessed with doing the things of God that we miss the opportunity to just be with God. We become like Martha in Luke 10:28-42, who was more interested in serving the Lord than in hearing what the Lord had to say. Service in and of itself is not wrong because God has called us to a life of servanthood as exemplified by Jesus Christ. He states in Mark 10:45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life—a ransom for many. But if we are honest with ourselves we are all over the place, because we keep going and going until we burn ourselves out. We miss deadlines that we had all intentions of meeting. We make promises that we want to keep but because we miss manage our time, once again we have to cancel and let someone down. Or maybe someone as a need that we feel we must meet without consulting with God whether or not it is our assignment to meet.
OM AZON.C M A n o e Availabl
From our text the church in Ephesus seems to have been bound by the captivity of activity. They were steadfast unmovable always abounding in the work of the Lord. They never gave up. They pressed forward and endured hardship like a good soldier; however, in the midst of doing the work for the Lord they forgot the Lord of the work. Unfortunately, we as a church have bought into the same way of thinking claiming that a faithful Christian is a busy Christian. So, we have taught that you need to be doing something in the church instead of allowing new christens to learn how to be Christians through developing a relationship with To experience a REVIVAL we must:
God, Then out of that relationship will come the service that will not forget God. So here is the question. In our pursuit of godly living and “Pleasing the Lord” have we forgotten God?” If that is the case I am here to bring hope. God is sending a revival. The prefix RE means again, which indicates that today you will be back to where you were before you got caught up the captivity of activity.
R- Remember your first love and repent E – Enter into worship- Tell God who He is to you. How much you love Him (Spirit and Truth) V – Value the Word of God-speak His word back to Him through prayer I – Invite the Holy Spirt in to empower you V – Visualize your breakthrough A – Accept that you are free L - Laugh at the devil because you are back From this day forth we will walk in our deliverance from the captivity of activity because God has RE- us. He has caused us live again.

Ministry MavensÂ the forerunners of faith
Rev. Eleanor Veronica Melton written by Bishop Dr. Kenyatta Arnette In Jeremiah 3, the prophet is engaged in a dialogue session with the Lord concern faithfulness and commitment. According to verse 15, the Lord declares, â€œThen I will give you shepherds (pastors) after my own heart, who will lead you with knowledge and understanding.â€? It has been said that pastoring only requires preaching skill and knowledge of some Bible verses. However, I submit to you that true pastors are carefully and skillfully designed by the hands of God and once you encounter a true pastor, one made after the heart of God, your life and destiny will never be the same.
I consider myself to be one of the privileged within the Body of Christ for having been favored with a pastor throughout my developmental years and well into adulthood. One of the exciting moments of being a member of the Methodist Church was the attending the Annual Conference and hearing the new appointments of pastors throughout the conference. My church had been truly blessed with our retiring pastor, but then we were utterly amazed and surprised, and a bit speechless, when the unthinkable happened.
Not certain who our new pastor would be, but confident that one of the very affluent and prominent male pastors of our conference would receive this awesome appointment to our church which was at that time the third most desired church in the district. However, God happened in the midst of our human experience.
The Bishop read the appointment certificate, “Friendship A.M.E. Church, Browns Mills, The Reverend Eleanor Veronica Melton.” A sudden, yet very audible gasp, echoed throughout the auditorium of the Trenton War Memorial Building.
God had been very favorable to our congregation throughout the years. We had always maintained supportive relations with women preachers; however, never had we entertained the notion of a woman pastor leading the third largest congregation in the district. I am reminded of the biblical text in John 1:46 in which one of the most sarcastic questions of the age was posed, “Can anything good come from Nazereth?” People wondered the same thing about our church now that we had a woman at the helm as the Senior Pastor, not as a mere associate minister and member of the staff.
This woman who stood all of five feet tall would now lead this congregation into a new season and dimension of ministry as pastor, visionary, shepherd, preacher, teacher, evangelist, and prophet.
Rev. Melton paved the way for many The Rev. Eleanor Melton was truly one of a kind. She demonstrated to a sexist and gender-biased denomination that a woman can lead and expand ministry with as much authority as any man. She was not only a pastor who nurtured and compassionately cared for her congregation including those who minimized, doubted, and discredited her abilities as a female pastor.
I believe God designed her for such a time as this to carry the mantle of divine witness into a new era in the church. She was not only a loving and caring pastor, she was a powerhouse of a preacher who would preach away the very foundations of separatism. She preached with passion and power and a voice of prophetic authority. Her preaching and spiritually discerning eye often disturbed and intimidated those men and women who lacked understanding and acceptance of spiritual gifts. She was a spiritually gifted vessel with the authority to horrify demonic forces. In fact, she never exercised the full authority God had deposited within her. I am grateful to have had a pastor such as the Rev. Eleanor Veronica Melton. She was not only my pastor, but my confidant and mentor throughout ministry. Professionally she was a middle school teacher. She was a mother and grandmother, and a lover of family and the virtues of family. But more than anything, she was a mother to me. When I met her at the conclusion of her initial appointment to our church, I remember her walking toward us with strong strides and great confidence. As she approached us, she went throughout the group of hopeful and waiting congregants embracing each tightly. There was something electric about her hug and the sparkle in her eyes that spoke within me.
I remember as she hugged me, and as I said my name, she leaned back and declared in that very moment, “Kenyatta, I’m Rev. Melton, and I am going to be your momma.” Not knowing the circumstances of my life, she vowed to be my mother during a season of life when my biological mother was facing her own battles. She kept her vow until God called her home in 2010. Add a little bit of body text
“Can anything good come from Nazareth?”
This woman, although small in physical stature, was a giant in the Spirit. She defied church odds and religious ideologies which relegated women to lesser roles in the church. Once, she was invited to preach at a church that didn’t realize our new pastor was a female. When we arrived, the pastor refused to allow her in the pulpit and redirected the worship service to the church fellowship hall where “female speakers” were welcome. By the time she finished preaching and once the Holy Spirit descended shattering the veil of ignorance of the pastor and congregation, a shift took place within the atmosphere. Repentance and shame filled the room as God’s power was revealed through this mighty woman of God who preached with utmost authority in the church’s fellowship hall. What a mighty God we serve!
There is so much I can say about My Mom, the Rev. Eleanor Veronica Melton. However, I will conclude with this. I believe she was a recipient, not only of the mantle of God’s Spirit, but she received the unique blessing Moses pronounced upon the life of his son Asher, the least likely among the children, Bishop Arnette “Most blessed of sons is Asher; let him be favored by his brothers, and let him bathe his feet in oil. The bolts of your gates will be iron and bronze, and your strength will equal your days.” The Rev. Eleanor Melton (Deut. 33:24-25) walked in iron shoes as a spiritual authority and as a As a church leader, I am witness to the power, indebted to this great authority, and grace of God. She was blessed and woman of God who continued being a blessing to nurtured me for such a many. Her strength and authority as a preacher, time as this to carry her pastor, and prophet came mantle forward. from the Lord.

THE BENEFITS OF A MENTOR Having a mentor is exponential. One of my mentors often says, “I’ve taken one for the team so that you don’t have to”. Most know that mentors are those who have encountered the bumps and bruises of learning and growth to successfully emerge as teacher/advisor/counsel and oftentimes, friend. Additional benefits I’ve found by having a mentor include: A mentor comes ready and willing to invest in you. Mentors give of the irreplaceable resource of time and commitment. If I show up, I can bet my mentor will show up to support me. A mentor’s influence extends beyond a moment.
Mentors help you move through process in order to learn how to maximize the moments from a meeting, call, or found in an instruction, for a lifetime. A mentor wields impact to yield the best effects. Mentors provide direction that helps you move toward the best, tangible result. The power contained in having a best effect in one area creates a domino effect in others. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel or go it alone. Got a mentor? If not, consider getting one. It will be one of the best decisions you could make for your personal and business development.

GirlFRIEND Theology We turn to "Knowing God" by J. I. Packer for our answer It is important to understand how the word “jealous” is used. Its use in Exodus 20:5 to describe God is different from how it is used to describe the sin of jealousy (Galatians 5:20). When we use the word “jealous,” we use it in the sense of being envious of someone who has something we do not have. A person might be jealous or envious of another person because he or she has a nice car or home (possessions). Or a person might be jealous or envious of another person because of some ability or skill that other person has (such as athletic ability). Another example would be that one person might be jealous or envious of another because of his or her beauty. In Exodus 20:5, it is not that God is jealous or envious because someone has something He wants or needs. Exodus 20:4-5 says, “You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.
If jealousy is a sin, why does God get to be jealous and yet remain perfect? You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God...” Notice that God is jealous when someone gives to another something that rightly belongs to Him. In these verses, God is speaking of people making idols and bowing down and worshiping those idols instead of giving God the worship that belongs to Him alone. God is possessive of the worship and service that belong to Him. It is a sin (as God points out in this commandment) to worship or serve anything other than God. It is a sin when we desire, or we are envious, or we are jealous of someone because he has something that we do not have. It is a different use of the word “jealous” when God says He is jealous. What He is jealous of belongs to Him; worship, praise, honor, and adoration belong to God alone, for only He is truly worthy of it. Therefore, God is rightly jealous when worship, praise, honor, or adoration is given to idols.
RESPONSE BY PASTOR DENISE ELBERT
MARK YOUR CALENDAR
I am never letting go of my OUTER beauty. God gave it to me just like petals on a flower. I remember having a debate about how when you get saved for real, you are supposed to be modest in dress which somehow, to some people, equated to no STYLE. Well, that did not work for me. I’ve always been naturally gifted to style and put things together and I truly enjoy it so how was I going to get delivered from a GIFT? I didn’t. And you don’t have to either. Modesty and ministry does not mean mundane or not caring about your outer appearance AT ALL. It actually means the opposite. It means taking great care to present yourself in a way that is pleasing to God, a way that speaks to the blessings of God on your life, and that draws people to your God, the supplier of all of your needs. It means, prioritizing your outer appearance AFTER the things of God. Indeed, there is something on the inside that will draw people to you and because God created you, your outer appearance is part of that plan.
The Fashion Hack L. Chanel Thompson
Matthew 6:33 was the core scripture for my first fashion business years ago because it was the final verse in Jesus’ conversation about clothes – his prioritization of where food and clothes and shelter should be in the life of every believer. He prioritizes these things, he DOES NOT disregard them. As a matter of fact, Jesus tells us that God Himself will ADD these things to us once our priorities are straight. I truly believe that if you look good, you will feel good, better, and perform better at whatever you are doing. Have you considered the lilies of the field? You are one of them, so take care of your petals too! For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
"Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, ..." Matthew 6:25 – 33, ESV
In ALL things be grateful ...Â 1 Thessalonians 5:18 "I am grateful for the opportunity to serve others." "I am grateful for the ability to see, touch, smell and hear. "I am grateful my healthy children,." "I am grateful for a made-up mind." "I am grateful for unconditional love."
