In representation of The Daughters of Christ Inc.’s support, I had the pleasure of attending the Saks Fifth Avenue Spring Fashion Show benefiting the Eric Trump Foundation and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on Sunday afternoon. It was my first time visiting the beautiful grounds at Trump National Golf Club of DC located in my Northern Virginia community. The venue was perfectTrumpGolfCourseand the event was spectacular! I had a great time meeting wonderful people, partaking of a delicious three-course lunch meal, and viewing beautiful spring/summer fashions from Saks Fifth Avenue Tysons Galleria replete with men’s and women’s wear of leading designers for a great cause!

I was so honored to be seated at Table 1 along with some phenomenal ladies: Summer (I Am Modern Magazine), Meghan (Intern, Northern Virginia Magazine), Jean, and Lucy (both avid golfers who offered to help me along my golf learning journey that begins with my beginner’s golf courses at The Golf Club at Lansdowne on June 1).  As it turns out, Jean and I share a mutual friend as well: It’s a small world.  ETFEvent2013SaksSignage

As a writer myself, it was so exciting to see magazine journalism in action as Summer and Meghan attentively took plenty of notes during the fashion show. I’m looking forward to reading their respective write-ups on the event (which I’ll share once they are published).

The Saks Fifth Avenue fashion show, which was moderated by April Yvonne, Fashion Stylist and Founder of MyDCStyle, awesomely provided us with great fashion looks and styles for the season. All of the Saks representatives who were available to answer our interest or purchasing inquiries on clothing and/or beauty items were very amicable, professional and knowledgeable. The beauty reps even touched up my lips with the coral lip gloss by Sisley Cosmetics – an organic skincare and makeup line. I loved it and looked fabulous with it on (if I must say so myself)! In fact, a representative of Sisley Cosmetics is coming to Saks Tysons Galleria next month and I scheduled my make-over appointment at the event for June 6; Due to my having sensitive skin, I’m looking forward to trying out an organic skincare line.ETFEvent2013MakeupApplication

At the end of the event, all attendees were blessed with two gift bags: One containing a Saks Fifth Avenue Wine Bottle Stopper and the other a delicious cupcake by Cakes By Carolyn, both of which I was truly grateful to receive. ETFEvent2013GiftCupcake

P.S. Now, I’m really “pumped out” about beginning my golf lessons in a couple of weeks. My “baby” brother Jermaine, who is a golfer, has been encouraging me for years to learn the game. Watch out Jermaine – you know how I am once I put my heart, time and talent into something: I go for it with a passion with the intent to succeed. As my latest saying goes with The Daughters of Christ Royal Soarors: I “Be Me, Do Me,” and suggest you “Be You, Do You as DaddyGod designed you! 🙂

Follow and Focus on Your Dreams!

Since walking out in ministry as The Daughter of Christ in 2002, I have been following the dreams I’ve had to love on and be a blessing to the world ever since I was a little girl. My parents always termed me “Evangelist,” but I really didn’t understand the meaning of my calling until I became an adult who eventually stopped running from it, but embraced it. I knew my dreams included touching people in the most passionate and edifying way, but wasn’t clear until birthing forth how I would go about doing so. And now, that I know my dreams, am following them, am focused upon them, and making them come true, I am happier and more fulfilled than I’ve ever been in my entire life! Confidently walking out the journey of your dreams is a challenging, yet very rewarding experience.

On last Friday evening, I was so excited to witness one of my longtime friends, Kenny E. Flanagan, CEO of Kas Collection, Inc., walk out his dream of being a renowned and respected fashion designer. Kenny and I met over 20 years ago at a law firm we were both employed at when I relocated to the Washington, DC area from New York City. It had been a while since I’d seen him and was so excited to attend the launch and fashion show celebrating his House of Kas Boutique at National Harbor. I recall Kenny’s passionate conversations with me about one day being a successful fashion designer; no doubt, he recalls hearing mine about being a speaker and writer. This was the season of conception of our future dreams as co-workers, but more importantly, as God’s children. Kenny E. Flanagan, CEO Kas Collection, Inc.

Kenny is a self-learned Couture and Ready-to-Wear fashion designer whose models stoically, yet elegantly, strolled down the runway at the relaxing waters of the National Harbor of Maryland upon sundown with his stunning designed fashions to include evening wear, business suits, and casual wear for men and women. I was in complete awe not only at the exquisite fashions (as I am a native New Yorker who loves fashion), but at the excellent accomplishments of my Kingdom Brother. Through hard or challenging times, hurt and pain, Kenny remained focused on his God-given gift to design and his God’s promise to bless him with good success. His fashion show was orchestrated with excellency, the love of his (Kenny’s) heart was evidentially flowing, and people realized instantaneously that Kenny’s event wasn’t merely a story being told by a young African-American man on that evening, but a dream in his mind being realized in the earth that was witnessed by news, fashion editors, celebrities, everyday citizens, family, friends, and strangers to see.

Not only was I in awe, but I was in tears of joy throughout the evening. I am so proud of you my Brother and am praying for your good success all the way to the top! You are not only God’s designer’s choice, but now also mine (smile). Visit Kenny at the House of Kas as well as online at www.kascollectioninc.com.

To all of my Royal Siblings reading this blog and hearing the words of our testimonies, I say to you: Our (the Children of the Most High God) time has come…

…Now is the present season of the realization of our long-time dreams as Sons and Daughters, not only for His Son Kenny or His Daughter Darnella, but for you as well my Royal Siblings.

May these two testimonies rekindle the flame of your passionate gift or talent our heavenly Father has placed in you; may they also remind you that no matter the high mountains or low valleys you face or endure to reach the top—you will come out and stand tall in victory in the end simply because of who you are and Whose you are…

… A Gifted Artisan, A Child of the King!

May your dreams come true today, in Jesus’ Name!

Loving You Abundantly,
Your Sister Darnella
