2011 Theme: God's Promises are Keepers:
It is Just Up to Humans in Regards to the Timing of the Promise

_Poem by (S)herlene_
Poem Title: Knowing and Conquering Generational Curses
Generational curses were revealed in the Torah, Holy Bible, and Holy Qu'ran.
Identify all the "generational curses" in these holy books.
Identification means to analyze and take many open-minded looks.
Discuss identity of generational curses with as many as you can.
I beg of you, do not feel ashamed because it did not really start with you.
L e a r n about i t. P r a y about i t. T a l k about i t.
By doing this you will put all generational curses into an endless, closed pit.
Learning about the curses and blessings of obeying God will cause blame to discontinue.
After identifying, you must classify generational curses.
Be clear and use uplifting advice to share amongst young peoples' grouping.
Only then, can we earn satisfaction in being a part of global regrouping.
Starting from this new beginning may affect global commerces.
Generational Curses: Learn about it. Pray about it. Talk about it.
Discuss it with your children… with your relatives…with your lover…with your friends…with your co-workers and DO NOT quit.
Generational knowledge is like having diverse generations attending college.
Faith believers say, "Faith without works is dead."
Actions are verbs that means "to do"--not just praying and begging for bread.
Our opponent, these facts you know and you consistently acknowledge.

Generational curses we now identify and classify you that we may begin to conquer you. In so doing, we may receive our good promises of God promises that were God's original intent for human beings.

_Biz Believer's Kingdom_
1. When creating a business name or email name, do not include special characters or symbols. (Leave out such such symbols as -, ', &, and numbers)
2.  Try to limit your business name to 25 characters/letters or fewer.
3.  Determine whether your company will be or will remain a sole proprietorship (1 owner), partnership (2 or more people), or a corporation (owned by the company name and not 1 person's responsibility). Use your creativity and  traditional tasks within your given business industry to create a unique, successful and productive business.

"When you have no financial assets its very easy for your opponent to win. Prepare today by getting Skills, Partnerships, Networking, Education, Mentors, Faith, and Determination." -Sherlene (Jan, 2011 Mentorship Month, Face Book)

_Timbuktu Dialogue_
During these trying times, do not forget hobbies as a way of expressing emotions and creativity by using your own imagination. By spending time in a hobby you will find it enjoyable. There is personal control over the hobby activity, and it can be progressively seen as offering some probability of success or productive outcome. You decide where, when, and with whom hobby participation will take place.

Some learners learn best when they have some control over their learning…

_Hallelujah 'n' Amen_
"Dear Lord, I come to you as humbly as I know how. I confess my sins those known and unknown. Lord you know that I am not perfect I fall short every day of my life, but I want to take time out to say "thank you" for your mercy. Thank you for Lord Jesus, my family, my friends, a roof over my head, food on my table, and everything I have." -J. Barrett and D. Barrett, audience viewers

"You can put all the money you have in the plate each Sunday. You can attend church faithfully. You can give to missions and feed the homeless. You can be faithful to your spouse. You can sit on a church board and make decisions with a title behind your name. Yet, if you don't have a personal relationship with God through his son Jesus Christ, or if you haven't repented of your sins and confessed Him as Lord, you are still lost."  -D. Harris, audience viewer

When becoming a member of a new church, ask for membership literature. Be cautious of any company that does not provide such literature. You should support your hometown church even if you attend an external church. Your current church should not demand or suggest that you stay away from your family, especially if there is no reason for you not to do so. If you care about your hometown community, you should participate in the communities in which you once lived or are living. Never choose to be a part of an organization without knowing their identity, reputation, and the services they confess to offer.

Poem: Inside My Happiness by E. Perkins
Inside my happiness there is nothing, but happiness for me.
Inside my happiness the colors are so bright and vivid, and I am able to see everything clearly.
Inside my happiness there is no pain, there is no fear.
Inside my happiness there is God, and he has planned all of this for me.
Inside my happiness there are no sorrows and no tears for the hurt doesn't exist.
Inside my happiness I am free to be me.

God bless,

Sherlene Stevens, Family Evangelist
