From the Streets to the Pulpit
We interview Author, Pastor Leonard D. Jackson, as he tells how he went from street life to ministering youth from it, in his new book, ‘From the Streets to the Pulpit.’ ( Special thanks to Lolita Seals for assistance with this Interview ) EDWS: What’s the title of your book? Author Leonard: ‘From the Streets to the Pulpit: Rise and Fall of a Powerful Minister’ EDWS: What does that title signify? Author Leonard: Yes it refers to what I’ve been through and overcame, selling drugs on the streets of St Louis, gang banging, and the change that I’ve made. EDWS: What part of St Louis are you from? Author Leonard: I’m from the North Side of St Louis, Cora & Natural Bridge. EDWS: Tell us a little bit about your book. Author Leonard: The book goes into detail about how I was introduced to street life and how I changed. When I was younger, a guy used to visit us and throw fists full of money on our bed. He would gloat about all the money he made. On one of his trips my boy’s mother turned to me and said, “I wish I had a drug dealer.” Wanting to […]
Girl Creates Safe Seasoning for Ailing Mother
We interview Niesha Mathis, mom of St.Louis adolescent entrepreneur, Nyzjahrose ‘Rose’ Savage, as she tells how proud she is of her daughter’s drive to create seasonings to help her as well as fund her own recreations. ( Special thanks to Lolita Seals for assistance with this Interview ) EDWS: So a while back you were diagnosed with kidney disease? Niesha: Yes. I have kidney failure. So I have a restricted diet. I can’t use regular seasonings to season my food due to all of the sodium, chemicals, and sugars that they put in conventional seasonings. And one day I was complaining (about not having much flavor in my foods). So my little girl came up with her own special seasonings to help mom out. EDWS: So because you were diagnosed with kidney issues your daughter came up with seasonings that wouldn’t make you sick? Niesha: Yes. That’s correct. She came up with a ‘No Salt Plan.’ That’s how the first one came out. She’s got three blends. Her original “No Salt” blend is vegetables and standard garlic powder and onion powder. EDWS: How did you feel when you saw her crafting spices just for you? Niesha: I was happy. I […]
Man Teaches St.Louis How Blacks Eat in Israel
His interactive vegan cooking classes are growing in popularity in St.Louis. Israeli implant, Tavon Brooks, sat down with us to discuss what’s special about his vegan courses and why he decided to introduce the dietary lifestyle of Blacks in Israel, to St.Louis. ( Special thanks to Lolita Seals for assistance with this Interview ) EDWS: Welcome Tavon. So why do you think it’s important for Black people to start eating healthier? Tavon: Well you know, that’s a loaded question. I say that because understanding what black is, if you don’t mind, I’d change that question to ‘melanated’ people instead of ‘Black’ people. EDWS: Okay Tavon: The reason why it’s important for melanated people to be vegan is because of the melanin in our bodies, it makes our bodies resonate at a higher vibration. And when we eat an alkaline diet our vibrations rise so high that we become able to use more than just the 10% of our brain that we normally use. EDWS: Interesting. Tavon: Yes. This happens because (with better food) we’re activating DNA and cells in our body by the quality of foods that we eat. EDWS: Wow, okay. So you have brought vegan cooking classes to St.Louis. […]
