LETTER FROM THE DESK OF
The Sherlene Brand
TO: New Visitors
FROM: Sherlene® (News, Socialization, Devotion Speaker, and Humanitarian)
SUBJECT: Welcome to Sherlene D. Stevens' Official Web Platform, and Sherlene NEWS®
MARYLAND - (Dear Audience Family) First, thank-you for visiting Sherlene's online house!!! I hope that you learned of my online platform from a suggestion of one of your friends, family members, or from one of my audience family members.
I built this independent platform to provide an online resource to all families, all socio-economic dwelling places.
I am a virtuous woman/wife material/mother/daughter/sister/auntie/friend/non-profit founder/volunteer.
I am the first female of color (multi-racial, Native American of Color identity) to own a family-service concierge in my area of Maryland. I offer family services (for-profit and a non-profit); I realize that many of you are familiar with our government's offering of the Department of Human Resources (DHR) including the housing of local Social Service Agencies.
Sherlene® has been supporting personal and family goals since 1979 (Officially age 8). I am a former retail and sales/health care/education/government employee. It wasn't until 2005, during actions of an abrupt divorce, that I began helping communities as an informal, family-services help desk. Along with offering such free help, I was studying to be the first-ordained United Methodist pastor in my local community. (A social mishap occurred and that never came to be my formal title.)
I offer Sherlene NEWS; its mission is to independently highlight a diverse group of news and media sources who offer great coverage of news.
From my years of work experiences at State Highway Administration and living in rural country USA, I learned, informally, of pre-weather before severe natural-weather events. [This was during a time when you didn't have community emergency alerts or emergency weather alerts in rural areas. Growing up, I lived near the water, Chesapeake River, on Maryland's Eastern Shore ]. Since 2005, I have been helping to preview storms ever since: I use both science and personal experiences to suggest the patterns and actions of storms.
After I was displaced from my upbringings for being too ambitious (actually homeless for a short time), I began to use various communication tools (newsletters, online platform, social media), and studied the most effective ways of how to quickly communicate with my onsite and local audiences. I am learned/skilled in business concepts and I learned how to type during my high school years; I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit: I knew that I wanted to earn a large income growing up. I have always known the value of purchasing things that will "last" into the next generation, from my diverse heritage line.
Providing services in a way that preserves and cultivates the dignity and respect of the family lifestyle:
There's FEMA, I partner with others to offer WEMA helpdesk disaster relief.
There's WIA and SBA, I am the founder of non-profit career counseling services and housing assistance.
There's local, state social-service agencies in every county in the U.S., I offer family lifestyle services. I am the first, independent family services owned by a person of color/female of color including offering additional services not mentioned to Native Americans of Color racial identity.
There's formal religious church-building ministries, as a Christian, I offer personal and family devotion social time as a faith-believer in the true-and-living God of us all.

Personal and Family Devotion Social. Religious Care, Christian-ministry social activities for those who choose to include or participate within your unique household (worship, prayer, meditation, and sermons). Ministry color: Turquoise and an open-cross style vision purpose. God, the Holy Trinity of God, is not purposed to our small thinking or seclusion. Jesus has risen and is no longer nailed or restricted on the more-than-2,000-year-old prisoner's cross.
I am a biological mother and co-parent (divorcee) of four kids--3 daughters and 1 son. I can't change-- for decline of said discrimination socially--my racial identity (I am a Native American of color; and, from my maternal great-grandfather's side ... my great-great grandmother was Indian and European white); I can't change-- my gender (female entrepreneur); or, the fact that I am divorced from my first husband [Hey, It wasn't my desire!]: We love our kids; we are co-parenting. We will forever be valued in each other's life because of our children that we gave birthed into this world. Our kids are now older teens and young adults. They have had to adapt to living in our separate dwelling places (Mommy's, Dad's): differences of parental social-economic classes (financials) lifestyles and parental ways/mannerisms. Amazingly, just before our abrupt divorce, there was a major reversal of actions of our finances. So my finances shifted from middle-income to low-income status, and his finances really improved. In my published work, I discuss such mishaps (published August, 2012).
My journal-memoir, The Script In My Box: A Journal of Forgiveness. I also call my book a compilation of forgiveness while growing up; life experiences (personal, family) as a Marylander on Maryland's Eastern Shore. "Tate Publishing", my original book publisher, has since closed its office and company brand (spring, 2017). I am currently exploring a new publishing offer. I would like for my book to have an offer of a movie-deal opportunity where I am the assistant producer of my work and former personal life experiences. As you know, only you can truly tell or show your personal story of your life's experiences.
