ROYAL ANNOUNCEMENT ~ OUR FOUNDER BEGINS ENGAGING US LIVE!.

Darnella’s Happenings

My Dearest Royal Readers,

Wow, it has been quite some time since I’ve blogged, but trust me, I’ve been busier for our Lord over the past few months than I’ve ever been.  In fact, I just realized that I hadn’t blogged since the new year rang in.  I’m so excited about all that Abba God is doing in me and through me for His glory! Let me catch you up to speed with me…

On January 23rd, my second granddaughter, Zaivia Danielle, was born and I was there to witness her blessed birth as well as was the first person (in our family) to hold her (this reminded me of when my self-adopted 2nd Mom Susan Sherzer was in delivery with me when my son DaSean was born and she was the first person in our family to hold him).  One of the first things I did upon holding Zaivia Danielle, was speak God’s love, anointing and blessings upon her life as a Royal Daughter of Christ who will (prayerfully) one day grow up, along with her big sister, Samaya Pearl, to take the reign of leadership in the organization which her “Glam-Mommy” Dar founded in 2010.

February 18th, I attended a friend’s family retreat at the Wyndham Resorts in Williamsburg, VA where I received prophetic instruction from God through Prophetess Tia Langdon to change the traditional spelling of “Sorority” to the spiritual connotation of “Soarority” in The Daughters of Christ, Inc.’s name which expresses clearly our non-secular viewpoint and mission as women of God “soaring” and “catapulting” for God’s glory through God-love and –service.  We are now known as The Daughters of Christ “Soarority.” 

March 24th, in honor of my Co-Host’s, Min. Darren A. Davis’, 1st Year Anniversary on our BTR Show, I changed the name to “The Son & Daughter of Christ Speak BlogTalkRadio Show,” which now boasts over 7,500 listens!  DaSean's 13th Birthday Tailored Suit FittingMarch 26th, my son, DaSean, turned 13 years old which means, I am now a doting mother of a teenage boy (pray for my strength in the Lord family)!  Part of our celebration into “manhood” was shopping at Nordstrom for his first men-sized tailored suit: He chose a Calvin Klein which he wore to our organization’s Founders Weekend Royal Induction Banquet and was too fine to behold!  

April 1st, As Founder, I’m so proud to say: Happy 2nd Birthday to The Daughters of Christ, Inc.April 8th, Happy 1st Birthday to The Sons of Christ, Inc.!  BlogTalkRadio Show Hosts Darnella & DarrenApril 13-15th, Along with Royal Brother Darren, I hosted The Sons & Daughters of Christ (first unified) Founders Weekend 2012 (yes, we let the brothers join us this year)!  This was The DsOC’s 2nd annual event and our fraternity brotherhood’s 1st one.  Our new DsOC Royal Soarors and SsOC Royal Brothers were inducted into our awesome Royal Society Family at our Royal Induction Banquet held on that Saturday evening at the Hyatt Dulles Hotel:  Thank you to the wonderful, hospitable and professional staff at Hyatt Dulles for making our event a successful one (as always, your food was delicious).  Our Royal Brothers and Soaror Sisters throughout the U.S. in our organizations attended for an entire weekend that included a Royal Welcome Reception to open FW2012 on Friday evening, Morning Glory with Soaking Prayer, Healing and Seminar Sessions on Saturday, and as our finale, a Sunday Morning Worship Service.  I want to personally thank you, my family and friends, who supported me through your love, prayers and financial donations to be a blessing to so many others at this momentous event.  May God continue to bless you abundantly in return!

Now, after having rested from, although I’m still soaring as a result of, The Sons & Daughters of Christ Founders Weekend 2012, I’m passionately releasing the Love of God in every way and to everyone I can!

Please keep me uplifted in your prayers as you and your families are in my mine.

In His Love Always,
Your Sister Darnella

New Show Launches & Celebrations!

My Dearest Royal Readers,  

It has been sometime since I’ve last blogged and I’ve missed you abundantly. God has been releasing some awesome blessings and doing great things in, through, and with my life as His Daughter. I am truly grateful!

On March 19th, I launched a brand new BlogTalkRadio Show called “Candid Kingdom Conversation Between Sons & Daughters,” along with a new Co-Host, my Royal Brother Minister Darren A. Davis, which I thought was going to be aired only once a month but now airs (by popular demand) twice a month. The audience’s response to the one-hour show was tremendous! Bro. Darren and I immediately responded to their “royal demand” and he now regularly Co-Hosts the show with me on Saturdays at Noon EST. I encourage you to visit www.blogtalkradio.com/darnellamoore and click “Follow” so you’ll receive e-mail notifications personally two hours prior to a scheduled show so you won’t ever miss one. You can also listen to the recordings 24/7 or subscribe via iTunes to listen on your iPod, iPad, or other forms of media.

As proud Mommy, my awesome son, Master DaSean William, turned 12 years old (a pre-teen) on March 26th. Time is flying! It seems just like yesterday that he was born. I’m having a blast being a boy’s mom as I now enjoy participating/watching not only basketball, but football, baseball, golf and so much more. I’m so proud of the Son of Christ who he is spiritually growing up to become.

April 1-3, the Christian Sorority which I founded in 2010, The Daughters of Christ, Inc., celebrated its 1st Birthday & Founders Weekend at the Hyatt Dulles Hotel in Northern VA. Along with myself, 33 of my Royal Sorors were anointed and officially inducted as Founding Daughters of this Love-driven, Christ-centered and Ministry-focused organization that will impact the world for God’s glory!

Finally, during The DsOC Founders Weekend, the Holy Spirit instructed me to release The Sons of Christ, Inc. ~ A Christian Fraternity modeling the mission and vision of its Sisterhood (The DsOC) which was incorporated in Fairfax, VA on April 7, 2011.  Both 15 year visions that God planted in my heart and soul in 1995 are now realized to complete His Royal Society of Sons & Daughters.

Thank you for your love, prayers, and support! keep me uplifted as I share Abba God’s Love, grace, mercy and salvation with the world in my own unique and humble way.

God-Loving You Always,
Your Sister Darnella

His Essence of Fatherhood

My Dearest Royal Readers:

Abundant & Highly Favored New Year 2011 to you and your families! You and I haven’t merely been blessed by Abba to step into a new year, but also a new decade that will manifest a great work for our awesome God here on earth for the next 10 years and beyond. When our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ cracks the sky for you and I, we should  and will be busy doing our individually unique assignments that bring Him glory, the world His Love & Salvation and we ourselves bountiful blessings!

“Come out  from among them. And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you. I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My Sons and Daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”
~ 2 Corinthians 6:18 NKJV

We’ve entered into a season wherein simply attending our churches/synagogues as organizational “members” is not sufficient nor prophetically sound. There has been a Prophetic Shift to Fatherhood in the atmosphere! Meaning, God our Father is rebuilding, perfecting and turning our Hearts towards Him as His Anointed Children; He is now using us to spread His Gospel with Righteous Living through His Love (termed “GodLove“) for all mankind (not just our own color, ethnic, social-class or religious background) empowering us individually to Love one another corporately as Brethren (termed “Royal Siblings“) correctly; and finally, impacting and charging our Pastors/Shepherds/Priests/Rabbis to no longer see, deem, treat or lead us merely as a tithe paying member in their pews, but as Sons & Daughters in their humbled Hearts thereby developing us as such!

When you walk into a place of worship, you should encounter the Love as well as the Fatherhood of our God!

True Fatherhood Shepherds (as I’ve been so honored & blessed to have in my life from childhood to adulthood through Bishop Landon E. Penn (NY), Apostle & Pastor Ralph E. & Dr. Shirley Green (MD), and my (late-whom recently transitioned to glory) Apostle Mom, Dr. Betty P. Peebles (MD) of my present home church Jericho City of Praise) who are living righteously and leading lovingly is exactly what every Son or Daughter of God needs to spearhead his/her spiritual life towards great success! It is my hope this is the type of Shepherd you are presently sitting under as well as my prayer that those of you who are seeking a place of worship will be led to such kind by His Holy Spirit.

As mentioned, my Jericho COP Royal Siblings and I lost the physical presence of our Apostle Mom recently in October 2010. Her passing was emotionally hard for me as I matured spiritually and birthed out naturally as The Daughter of Christ as a result of her powerful Word teaching ministry in 2002. In 2000, I walked into her church for the first time as a “church girl stepping out of bounds” (by the way, this is the title of a book I’m currently writing), broken and bruised. That day, Apostle Mom preached a sermond entitled, “Coming Out of Egypt,” that healed and lifted me up instantaneously causing me to walk in my promise land ever since! God’s Message through her spoke to me personally in the most profound way! I knew immediately she was my new Pastor & Spiritual Mom. The anointing of her Motherhood hit me like a huge as well as life-changing “BOOM!”

I praise God for Apostle Mom passing her anointed and prophetic Mantle upon her Son–our (Jericho’s) Assistant, yet now Senior Pastor Joel R. Peebles, Sr. & First Lady Ylawnda Peebles. Pastor Joel ministered as Asst. Pastor at Jericho’s 8:00am service (which I rarely attended) and Apostle Mom Shepherded the 11:00am service. Therefore, as a Daughter of Jericho, I hadn’t built a relationship with him as I had with Apostle Mom. I highly respected and was excited about her passing the Mantle of Pastoral Leadership to Pastor Joel, yet had not connected in my heart to him and his wife as my (now) Spiritual Father & Mother. I still felt more towards them as Brother & Sister. Until this New Year Weekend…

…After New Years Eve service (as we were exiting the building to go home and inspite of her exhaustion), First Lady Ylawnda stopped to ask my son DaSean, “What is your GPA-how are your grades in school?,” and took the time to talk/minister to, as well as pray for him as a Spiritual Mother who cared about the success of her child. Then on yesterday-our 1st Sunday worship service of 2011-when Pastor Joel anointedly and confidently spoke the next-level Vision of The City of Praise. He ministered and spoke Vision into our lives corporately, yet hit me like a flood uniquely and individually as a Daughter! I screamed and couldn’t stop praising God in the midst of his Sermon that confirmed and birthed so many on the inside of me. Just as Apostle Mom, through the Holy Spirit, spoke into my heart, soul and spirit as Daughter back in 2000, 10 years later, her Son–my Beloved Pastor Joel–had now spoken the next level Sermon into my humbled life that sealed the connection for me to him as a Spiritual Father! Hallelujah, Glory to God!!! I cannot tell you how overwhelmed, grateful and spiritually full I was when I walked out of the doors of my church home–The City of Praise–on yesterday.

I pray and desire the same Fatherhood relational Love for you–into every place of worship, every home, every Son or Daughter of the King of kings & Lord of lords!

Because He Is, We Are

A Letter of Thanksgiving

Dear Heavenly Father,

We Your Royal Children, give wholehearted thanks to you during this holiday season for all that You’ve done for us. Without You, we are nothing, but in You, we are everything!

Through the ups and downs, the highs and the lows of life, You Daddy, has remained a very present Helper, a Rock of Strength, a Tower of Exhortation, an unfailing Provider, and above all, an unconditional Source of true Love to us–Your special treasures and created ones! There was not one moment this year, that You failed to keep Your promises or fulfill your position as our King of kings and Lord of lords in the earth.

Times arose when we couldn’t depend on friends or family who turned their backs on us or failed to grasp the importance of our roles in their lives. Circumstances arose when we didn’t know how we were going to survive financially, physically, spiritually, socially, mentally, or emotionally, but You–the Ultimate Father–came through each and every time just when we needed You the most! Feelings of depression, failure, suicide, or unworthiness attempted to come nigh our dwelling, but You–Jehovah Raffa–encamped Your sustaining and healing angels around us that protected our minds to keep them stayed on You. Family, community, political, ethnic, and even denominational religious warfare arose with battling flames, but You God, raised up a hand of defense of our behalf to bring peace, forgiveness and unity back into the midst of our environments. Experiences of grief touched some of our homes due to the transition of loved ones from earth to glory, but You heavenly Father turned our mourning into dancing while continuing to help us process the spirit of grieving loss! Hallelujah, Glory to You God!!!

And for these blessings, We, The Sons & Daughters of God, Thank You! We honor You! We exalt You! We continue to need You! And above all, we Love You with our whole hearts, minds and souls!

To You Lord we say Thank You for all You’ve Done for Us!

Your Royal Children & Kingdom Heirs
The Sons & Daughters of God

P.S. From my Family to your’s, I wish you a very Happy & Blessed Thanksgiving. May your travels be safe, your food be delicious, and above all, your Loving amongst God, yourselves and others, flow abundantly!

Love Always, Your Sister Darnella

Single-Parenting with God the Father

Our God is an awesome God; He reins as Lord forever and ever! When everyone and all else fails, our heavenly Father remains faithful to provide for us according to His riches in glory! Hallelujah, hallelujah!

I had to begin this blog posting with a praise break as I think of the recent help God the Father has sent towards my son, DaSean, and I. God proved Himself as ultimate Father to me as a child growing up in a single-parent home and continues to do so for me as a single-mother today. My mother couldn’t have made it without God raising four children singlehandedly; we as parents—whether married or single—continue to need Him now as our total source and resource.  He is the ultimate Co-Parent that we need to help us through the journey of parenting the beloved children whom He has blessed us with.

Yesterday, I woke up facing a financial shortage to meet the needs of DaSean’s extracurricular activities, but by the end of the day, God had provided everything I prayed and believed Him for. While at his first official football practice of the season on last evening, I lovingly watched he and his teammates practice as well as admired how DaSean himself gave his all to football. I also experienced sadness that his father was not present to witness or support one of the most exciting days of our son’s life—his first day of pursuing the sport of football. Looking around and seeing all the proud Dads was bittersweet for me as a single-mother: On the one hand, I was happy for the boys who were blessed with a father’s active presence in their lives and homes, while on the other, I was sad for mine who wished his dad was there for him on his special day.  It may be easier for one parent to accept the absence of another due to no choice or circumstance of their own such as death, but it’s hard to understand how a parent can willingly disconnect themselves from their own child.

Non-custodial and absentee parents who are guilty of this unfortunate crime, I pray that you will yield to and allow God to heal, touch and move in your life in such a way that you’ll be moved into active participation in the lives of your own child(ren) given to you by Him.
          ~ The Daughter of Christ

As I often do when I’m feeling low or frustrated, I called my Mom during my lunch hour, who could not only relate to my experience as a single-mother, but also to my hurt and pain as a woman. Thank God for great, dedicated and God-fearing Moms! Mommy immediately encouraged me to stand tall, trust God, and know that He is working it all out for DaSean’s greater good. He, DaSean’s ultimate Father, would not fail nor leave or forsake him. Mommy prayed with me (I thank God for a praying mother) and I instantly began to feel better.

We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed and broken. We are perplexed, but we don’t give up and quit. We are hunted down, but God never abandons us. We get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going.  
          ~ 2 Corinthians 4:8-10

Later that evening upon our return from football practice, I received a Twitter message from Judge Glenda G. Hatchett extending an open invitation to join her via teleconference to discuss the topic of single-parenting. I’d just connected with her a few days prior through Twitter direct message congratulating her on such an awesome interview and her newly-founded organization, Parent Power Now, after viewing her on CNN. I had no plans of ever communicating with Judge Hatchett again, nor had any expectations of her responding to me, but she did so immediately. I was absolutely stunned by her graciousness especially since she probably hadn’t even left the Atlanta CNN studios yet. What display of love, humility and connectedness! A true reflection of our heavenly Father.

I was honored and excited about the opportunity to join her teleconference, but I was also exhausted and emotionally drained from the day’s events. The Holy Spirit immediately spoke to my “no,” and instructed me to say “yes,” to Judge Hatchett’s invitation. I had five minutes before the teleconference began and several tasks to complete before bedtime, but I obeyed God and called in. At the end of the teleconference, I was so glad that I did! Hearing Judge Hatchett’s love, wisdom, inspiration, and candid transparency as a fellow single-parent (which I had no idea she was one) spoken to myself and others was a healing balm in Gilead that responded to my exact need at that exact moment as a single-mother. I cried during the teleconference and thereafter realizing that God had, yet again, supplied all my need (even emotionally) according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Surprisingly, through a source where I least expected it—one of my prominently successful Kingdom Sisters who I’d never imagined connecting or communicating with in life.  Iron truly sharpens iron.

For the troubles we see will soon be over, but the joys to come will last forever.
          
~ 2nd Corinthians 4:18

Part of my vision for The Daughters of Christ, Inc. (Sorority) is to minister to the needs of single-parents and their children. Upon Judge Hatchett’s Twitter invitation to join her movement to uplift the lives of parents through her organization Parent Power Now, I realized that God was connecting the dots of His Kingdom Children and bringing us together to fulfill His service initiatives in the world one community at a time. God has given His Daughter, Judge Hatchett, the mantle, the vision, and the ability to address the needs of parenting issues. This responds to The Daughters of Christ Sorority’s vision to do the same: Our organization can and will collaborate with our Kingdom Sister Judge Hatchett’s vision to provide the parenting support and dialogue that we as mothers and fathers so desperately need, yet often lack. Therefore, I’m humbly asking the Kingdom Sisters & Royal Sorors within the sphere of my influence (who are parents) to join the Parent Power Now movement by building a profile at www.parentpowernow.com as I’ve done. Also, please join my Group, The Daughters of Christ Sorority, within her website.

My fellow single-parents, be encouraged and know that God is available 24 hours a day to meet you and your children’s needs. All you have to do is give Him the lead to do so by making Him Lord of your life. He is the best Co-Parent that you could ever hope to have and the most Loving Father any child could ever dream of. He is our Father, our Daddy, our Lord. He is mine—and He is your’s. Allow Him take the wheel of your life’s journey to drive you and your children towards victory in every area of your lives.

I’m praying for you and trust that you too, are praying for me. Your heavenly Daddy loves you and your babies and so do I!

Purposefully Yours, Your Sister Darnella
The Daughter of Christ
