Born and raised in Atlanta GA Tinnie Garlington has always had a passion for teaching. As she grew older "life"
happened and she became a mother at the age of 14. Even though she traveled from school to school, living with
anyone who would take her in, she never gave up on learning. Through those experiences she began to write
in notebooks about how she was feeling and in some cases make up stories so that she could escape her reality.
A high school dropout with no one to turn to but God, she decided at the age of 20 to go back to school to
obtain her GED. The journey was still bumpy, but through her will to succeed, she graduated with honors.
Now the Atlanta born "Grady Baby" Tinnie C. Garlington embarked on her passion to motivate and encourage
individuals to see beyond their past. Don't Look Back, Look Forward was birthed from a dark place. Tinnie
discovered healing through writing and wrote poetry and plays, yet was too afraid to move forward on her dreams t
to use this material to teach and encourage others. Well, a close friend and her mother encouraged Tinnie to stop
being afraid of the greatness that was inside of her and act on what God has given her. A small yet powerful
book was pulled from her personal library and now the world can share in the thoughts hidden in her heart. Her
hopes is that her first book titled "Don't Look Back, Look Forward" will capture the attention of those who are
looking for away forward and encourage them to never give up and allow the hard times to serve as a solid f
oundation for growth and a positive future.

Stellar Nomomated Gospel Recording Artist Jonathan Valencia returns to Good Deeds - Dr. Renee Sunday.Jonathan Valencia is a 12 year old who loves Jesus. At the early age of 3, Jonathan’s idea of play was preaching on his Karaoke machine. Jonathan has always been recognized as being deeply grounded in God’s word and bold about his walk with Jesus. Many Pastors would often state that Jonathan was a little preacher. As for me, I refer to him as my tugboat because he has pulled me along in my spiritual walk. Being inspired by God, I began to do what I love to do which is to write. As a result, my words poured out as a song I titled “Kingdom Bound”. The song was written for Jonathan to use to inspire other youth to pursue their calling now. Matthew 19:14 speaks directly to us on how we should prepare children for the kingdom. Jonathan has a deep love for Jesus and wants to spread the good news to the world. His first release “Kingdom Bound” is for everyone but the target audience is the youth due to Jonathan’s sincere concern for his peers who listen to explicit lyrics. He understands that many of the words they repeat are not good for their minds and many of his peers are not even aware of the things they are speaking on their lives through the lyrics they repeat. Jonathan continues to rely on his faith in God’s word to overcome obstacles that have challenged his faith. The obstacles have caused him to develop a consistent prayer life and commitment to learn scriptures. Jonathan is currently ministering his music in churches and various events. His boldness in serving Jesus is evident when he is on stage professing the name of Jesus.

Wendy Glidden. God spoke to me at a young age and informed me that I would be a mother to many. I ran from that promise with a Vengeance! However, despite my best attempts, I could not out run God. He delivers on His promises! As a child, I informed God how I did not need much. Material possessions have never been a hang-up for me. Thank God for that! I promised God I would use all my riches to help others. I had dreams to say the least!
When you start out life on your own at 16, unwillingly married and with child, your dreams have a way of falling to the way side. Little did I understand that God was just thickening my story and adding immense color!! It's funny what happens when you come to the end of yourself. Everything changes.
My focus is on total wellness. I love how well God has prepared me for my ministry. I love how God has been there for me even when I thought he wasn't. I was blogging before I even realized fully what was going on. It amazes me that in less than 15 months, I have had over 53,000 page views. Even cooler to me than that is where I have been read. My stories have been viewed in places I did not even know existed until they showed up in my stat report.
This journey has been quite exciting and I am looking forward to moving to the next step. This year I have already published two books and I am working on two more right now. Alongside publishing books, I also enjoy blogging. and I also market for a wellness company that is a just in time manufacturer of everyday needs. No fancy packaging but tons of value! Not often can you spend less and end up with more! This side business fits perfectly with my theme of total wellness and helping others. This year I also began leading my first bible study group.
Often others ask me how on earth I manage to do so much. I reply only by the grace of God do I do what I do.
