Greetings Beautiful Family and Friends!
How are you? I trust that you are having a great day! Over my 20-year writing career, I have written on a wide range of subjects. One of my favorites is Religion or Spirituality. As a woman of faith, I feel like God created me in His own image – just to glorify Him. I do so in all that I say and all that I do. Therefore, when my AWESOME editor, P. Nigel Killikelly, gave me the opportunity to write on the subject of “Imperfect People Being Used by God”, I jumped at the chance to glorify God through my writing. I made a list of ten global leaders that I admire greatly and wanted to include. Seven of them answered the call for inclusion. That’s AMAZING because in the Bible, the number seven represents completeness.
Bishop Dale C. Bronner, Dr. Jamal H. Bryant, Rev. Dr. Cynthia L. Hale, Bishop Dr. Barbara L. King, Rev. Herman “Skip” Mason, Jr and Pastor Joel Osteen are kind, dedicated, sincere and kind men and women of God. Their profound and eloquent sermons and speeches empower, inspire and educate people all over the world. I am especially honored and humbled that these seven leaders would choose to be a part of my article.
I mean… my sorority sister Dr. Hale interrupted her much needed vacation to respond to the questions. Bishop Bronner was in another country and he stopped to get the responses to me. Our Queen, Bishop Dr. King, followed up with me personally to ensure that I had all that I needed. And… Pastor Osteen, Pastor Groeschel, Dr. Bryant and Rev. Skip, thanks for taking time out of your SUPER busy schedules to be a part of my article. It really meant a lot to me. You all are simply the BEST!
Printed in the October 2017 issue of the magazine on newsstands right now throughout the United States, the article is titled: “God Makes Perfect Use of Imperfect People: 7 Sayings from Global Leaders That Will Encourage You”.
