    Actress Ciera Payton

    in Business

    Today on the BeachLifestyle Radio Show, Host Neil Haley The Total Tutor will interview Actress Ciera Payton.

    Ciera Payton is a New Orleans Native with an authentic Southern girl charm.  She was raised in multiple neighborhoods in New Orleans but she most identifies with the third ward. There, she lived with her drug addict father and Nanaw (Grandmother). It was under those circumstances that Ciera had to find a way to create her voice.

    When her Aunt Kathy advised her to read Maya Angelou’s I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Ciera discovered that, “If Maya got through it I could get through it too.” And that’s where she discovered her artist voice.

    When Ciera was in eighth grade, her Nanaw died of cancer and her father was incarcerated. It was then that Ciera went to live with her mother in New Orleans East. This new world opened endless possibilities for Ciera. She joined her school’s Drama Troupe and then auditioned for the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts. As a freshman, she auditioned for the introductory course at NOCCA, but was enrolled in the sophomore class.

    The NOCCA theater program embodied the spirit and family ensemble that Ciera desired. She graduated from NOCCA as a junior and then headed to North Carolina School of the Arts for their High School Drama program and continued to study there for college.

    Dave Payton: A life of sin can place us on a dangerous path. Many people do not recognize their destructive behavioral patterns, but for others this is a life-style. Sin has no boundaries, and it is capable of destroying the lives of very good people. This book will engage the reader and will expose those things which may have a negative influence in a person's life. It is important to recognize that all sins are forgiven when we place our trust in God. This book contains specific topics designed to promote journalism. While some of these topics are very sensitive, they will also open the door for healing as God will use this time to touch your heart. I hope you enjoy this intimate time with God. ???Dave Payton was born in Portsmouth, Ohio, 1957, and moved to Arizona at the age of five. He was raised in South Phoenix. He grew up in a predominately Hispanic neighborhood. It was in the streets that his lessons were learned. He acquired a different perspective on life as God showed him how to accept others for who they really are. Through much adversity and help along the way, he was able to fight his way to a better life. His tough life gave him compassion for those who suffered. His passion for the less fortunate will always be a soft spot in his heart as he can only thank God for saving him.

    Characteristics of a Chayil Woman -- Awe

    in Self Help

    She Awakened to the Awe of God

    Bob Proctor,  from the series, The Secret, say that we hear with our ears, but we listen with our emotions. It is like the difference between respect and reverence. We respect with the mind, but reverence is woven into the emotions leaving you with a sense of personal wonder and awe. It overwhelms, swallows and engulfs you. Reverence creates AWE. And AWE takes our breath away.

    Awe is born out of a divine encounter which morphs what you are. It is not a change. It is a complete reworking of your inner being. 

    Proverbs 31:30, says that Chayil was a woman that feared the Lord. She had come alive to the knowledge of her own insignificance; yet she was aware that she was infinitely loved by God. 

    The first characteristic of a true Chayil woman is realizing her value to God. It is the awareness that she has a place in the universe by God’s own doing. She knows that regardless of what circumstances she might face in life, the solution has already been crafted.

    The flip side of the coin of reverence is  Godly fear. Not fear as in being afraid, but a fear rooted in being accountable for what you have been given and an extreme fear of the one who gave it to you.

    It is a fear that knows one day you will have to give an account of how you spent your TALENTS. We are all expected to produce something out of what has been placed in us. God wants fruit out of our lives. He will come looking for how we manifested our PURPOSE / WITH / PURITY / AND POWER.

    A Chayil Woman is alive to the AWE of GOD. She Fears with HONOR her LORD and responds with HOLINESS in HEART. And she is inclined to manifest it in her life.

    AWAKENING to the AWE of GOD is the topic of the next episode of Better Life With Stella.
