Author Tiffany L. Warren to Release ‘A Favorite Son Christmas,’ Sequel to ‘The Favorite Son,’ Now a BET+ Original Movie…

Hello World,

Earlier this year, I interviewed author Tiffany L. Warren, about her how her faith-based novel ‘The Favorite Son” was made into a BET+ movie that premiered in May of this year!

Read that informative interview HERE! 

And below is the synopsis of the original novel….

Do family, faith–and fame–go together?

They’re handsome, smart, and musically gifted. Brothers Camden and Blaine Wilson have put their talents together and founded a gospel group. The quieter one, Camden is the songwriter, while charismatic Blaine is the performer. At first, their Reverend father is against the idea–until Blaine, his favorite, wows the congregation at a church revival. Sure enough, once the reverend witnesses their effect on the crowd he wants them there every Sunday. But he may have set the stage for trouble. . .

As the group’s popularity grows, so do the groupies–and promiscuous Blaine is more than happy to share his love. Gigs across the country, meetings with music execs, a chance to sign with a major label, and a sexy new band member bring new connections–and dangerous new temptations. Soon, a slew of rumors and a shocking betrayal threaten to destroy the group–and the brothers’ relationship. But one event is going to rock their world forever. Do they have enough faith, forgiveness, and brotherly love left to find harmony once more?…

Well, now she is set to release a sequel, a novel entitled “A Favorite Son Christmas” any day now. That’s all I know as of today so be on the lookout on your favorite online book retailers for the release!

Man Gets Mad at Woman After He Pays for Expensive Steak Dinner and She Tells Him She is Going to Church and Not His Home…(VIDEO)

Hello World,

Although I haven’t been a single girl for some time, I do remember that dating can be treacherous. I don’t know if this video is a recording of a real incident, but nevertheless, it is hilarious! Apparently, this couple has gone on a first date and the man spent roughly $300 on a steak dinner. As he conveniently lives blocks away from restaurant, he asks her to come to his home after dinner is over. But the woman declines his offer because she is getting up for church in the morning! He was heatwave hot about her answer and proceeds to tell anyone who will listen that she is wrong for telling him “no” particularly when he has kids and diapers and tuition that the $300 could have helped provide. But she rightfully told him that she did not ask him to spend all that money…Anywho, the conversation went on so long, they will probably go out on a second date because I believe he was truly stupefied by her answer and one of the main ways to get and keep a man’s attention is to totally surprise him….Check out the video for yourself and let me know what you think…

And I wouldn’t be surprised if this all went down in the A because dating is especially treacherous here…And if they go on a second date, she probably needs to invite him to come to church with her…What say you?

Seven Scriptures to Remind Us that Jesus is the Real Reason for the Season…Still…

Hello World,

Like the treasured Christmas tree that my husband and I lovingly decorate each Christmas season (we bought the tree during our first Christmas together as a married couple in 2013), the post below, which I originally wrote in 2012, is still relevant especially as today is December 1!

I don’t know about you but December always seems to fly by…Between making Christmas lists, shopping with the masses, sending out Christmas greetings via e-mail or snail mail, going to Christmas parties and other events, preparing for the New Year and regular life stuff, it seems there is never enough time to do it all and so I almost look forward to January when life is back to its regular pace…

And if you noticed, I haven’t mentioned Jesus at all…That is because with all I have to or want to do, I can forget that the birth of Jesus, God’s precious gift to mankind, is the real reason for the season…And so to prepare my heart for this season and hopefully help you prepare your heart for this season too, I have decided to list seven scriptures that take the focus off of the worldly expressions of the Christmas season and help us to focus on Jesus…

1. “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”(which means “God with us”). Matthew 1:23 I just love that Immanuel means “God with us.”  Jesus was born so that God could be with us…Remember that the next time you feel alone because you are not…God is with us!

2. “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 Look how much we are loved by God! He sacrificed His one and only Son! What have we sacrificed for God lately? Something to remember and act on at this time of the year…

3. “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17 Every time I see Christmas lights, I’m going to remember that God is the father of heavenly lights and that every good and perfect gift is from Him…I’m feeling better about the Christmas season already…

4. “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23 Although we will never be free of sin this side of Heaven, we can still accept God’s gift of eternal life with Jesus Christ who helps us not to sin…

5. “…Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have…” 1 Peter 3:15 At some point during this Christmas season, we have to know that everyone around us does not know the real reason for the season…I hope I’m ready when the opportunity arises for me to tell somebody about my Lord and Savior…

6. “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 37:4…Do  you want the desires of your heart? Of course 🙂 Then we have to delight ourselves in the Lord and His purposes…Now, this does not mean that we send up a list of what we want and then He delivers gifts like He is some Santa Claus in the sky…No, this verse means that mysteriously when we align ourselves with the Lord, His desires for us become our desires…and then we get the desires of our heart because they are His desires for us too…

7. “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom His favor rests.” Luke 2:14…This time of the year especially I have to make every effort to give glory to God and live at peace with others…I wish those in government would remember that…

And what is the Christmas season without beautiful music? Check out Jonathan McReynold’s rendition of “O Come All Ye Faithful.” His voice is simply angelic…
