9 Year Old Motivation Speaker Exemplifies Good News

Jan 26, 2015 1

SamGreen-HeadshotRecently, the GoodNewsNotebook.com (GNN) heard of a 9-year old biblical prodigy who is really preaching the Good News.  His name is Samuel Green.  In our interview with young Samuel, we were even more impressed with his achievements.  Here’s why.

On July 6, 2005 in Jackson, Mississippi God blessed the world with Mr. Samuel M. Green. He is 9 years old and handsome son to Louis & Joann Green. Samuel spends time with his older brother Cedric that he loves dearly. Samuel is an active member at Berean Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Jackson, MS which is led by Pastor James Owens.

Samuel is in the 5th grader at College Drive Seventh-Day Adventist Christian School in Pearl, MS. At an early age, Samuel has shown his love and passion for God. Often, you will find him reading his favorite bible story, singing his favorite song, or just lending a helping hand.

We, at GNN, were also excited to learn the Samuel host his on television show, “Samuel Green presents the Simple Truth.” The TV show airs each Sunday on cable channel 18 in Jackson, MS. The show has had great audience appeal and is professional filmed by Phyllis Robinson Productions.

Samuel presents God’s words with clarity and understanding.  Clearly, age is a number with God as he simply tells you, “what thus says the Lord.”  His messages are powerful bible stories that tell how our Lord has our back.  A principle that many young Christian students can understand and hold on to as they face the challenges of school, peer pressure, and even, family life.

Since 2011 Samuel has preached God’s word in over 200 churches in areas, Jackson, Ms, Alabama, Louisiana, and West Frankfurt, Illinois Atlanta, GA   Samuel recently received 2 invitation to Preach in Africa.

In October of 2011. Samuel and his parents traveled to West Frankfort, IL where he delivered his sermon about “Jonah” for divine service that was broadcasted worldwide on 3ABN’s “Kid’s sharing” ministering to millions. Recently in March of 2012, Samuel was featured on Jackson, Mississippi’s NBC affiliate WLBT 3 weekly segment “Look around Mississippi and Fox 40 morning show twice. Fox 6 Birmingham, Al. His most recent appearance was on CCN show entitled “Faces of Faith, He has been featured on NBC Today’s show and was interview by Kathy Lee Gilford and Hoda Kotb.

Great Reasons To Keep Driving That Older Car

Sep 10, 2014 2

By Connie Alsobrook

Driving an older car gives the perception of not having any money to
purchase a new car. Why else would you be driving an car over 10 years
old. There are tons of reasons to drive your vintage car until, as they
“until the wheels fall off”.

Some individuals hold on to their older model cars for sentimental purposes. Automobiles are sometimes  passed down to another family member and even gifted in a will.  When this happens it makes giving up your vehicle very difficult because of all the precious memories that were experienced in that particular car.

While most of us love our old cars, and bragging rights as to who has the most miles, sometimes we do have to let go. Weigh your options and make the best decision for you and your family, not because someone else thinks you look better in a new car.

Here are a few things to consider……………………..

SAVINGS If you have had your car for more than 10 years, chances are you do not
have a car payment. Car payments minimum are about 250.00 per month, so
let say you have not made a vehicle payment for the last 5 years. You
would have saved at least 15,000. Throwing money into a new car just for the sake of having a newer model is not always the best decision. Again with a new car comes extra expenses, the up keep along is pricey.

INSURANCE The longer you have your automobile the less you pay for car insurance, and taxes. In some states if you keep your vehicle over 20 years it
is considered to be an antique and you are eligible for a tag that represents that.

MAINTENANCE When you have been driving your car for a number of years
you become very familiar with it and know immediately when there is a
problem. Parts for an older cars can be easily found at savage/junk yards.
Regular mechanic shops can service your vehicle, they are not required to visit a dealer, which will charge you twice as much for repairs.

RELIABILITY/SAFETY This is the most important thing when considering keeping your car.

  • Is your car unreliable in it’s old age?
  • Has your car left you stranded?
  • Is it unpredictable? Are there major
  • issues that need to be repaired that you cannot afford?
  • Are you locks still working?
  • Do your seat beats function properly?
  • Is it polluting the environment?
