Bless the Lord, Believer
Welcome to this empowering guide, which will give you a clear blueprint on what it takes to create a full business or ministry using your authorship.
In case you are new to me and my work, allow me to introduce myself.
I am Felecia Killings, the Founder and CEO of FKMinistries. Our mission is to equip God’s people to engage in this end-time revival and national reformation using the written and spoken word.
We fulfill this purpose by providing spiritual and technical training to new Christian Authors, Speakers, and Spiritual Leaders who are called to bring deliverance to others using their stories.
In addition to the work I complete within FKMinistries, I am also the Founder and Executive Director of LiyahAmore University and LiyahAmore Publishing. This is the only online (and soon-to-be offline) training program for Christian Authors and Speakers. (I will share more about the school in this guide.) You can follow me on my social platforms to receive more of my empowering teachings at www.FKMinistries.org and on Instagram: @coachfeleciakillings.
Now, this resource I’m providing to you captures a snapshot of my latest resource, From A-Z of Christian Writerpreneurship, which dives deeply into understanding the complexities that go into generating wealth as a Christian Author, Speaker, or Spiritual Leader.
In this FREE guide, you will learn about 6 aspects of successfully building, launching, and scaling your business or ministry using your authorship. More specifically, you will learn about:
So, without further delay, let’s jump into this teaching. I am sure it will bless you.

Back in 2016, when I first expressed my support of Donald Trump, my Black audience nearly died.
Many on Facebook knew of my educational and work background, and how I spent a large portion of my teaching career fighting against racial discrimination at the public school I once worked.
Coming forth as a Trump supporter seemed so out of place.
And the more I voiced my allegiance to the Trump campaign, the more my Black followers found me to be that type of coon who tap-danced for the White audience.
I'm happy to say that a couple years later, such remarks are practically non-existent, mostly because I have proven I'm not beholden to anyone.
I have shown that I'm willing to support Trump on some issues while rejecting some of his policies that I know will eventually work against Black Americans in the future (i.e. the First Step Act).
Yet, this isn't true of nearly all mainstream Black Conservative Influencers we see today.
In other words, you will NEVER hear certain Black Conservatives say anything negative about Trump or his policies, because they are more loyal to politics rather than humanity (or reality, for that matter).
And we have to ask ourselves why this is so.
Has the Right hired its own version of Black political charlatans, and is this why so many Black Americans want nothing to do with Republicans and the modern conservative movement?
Why aren't some Black Conservatives speaking about issues that are important to Black Americans while presenting conservative solutions?
Why are Black Conservatives more comfortable speaking about the ills of our communities with audiences that look nothing like us?
Why are these mainstream Black Conservatives unwilling to sit down with Black media outlets to engage in real discourses?
I explore this topic and more in today's post.
"A question for Black Women Only" - Christopher Harris
"What do you believe is a sure fire way/strategy to get Blacks to walk away from the DNC?"
Christopher Harris, Founder of Unhyphenated America, a media and news company with a growing audience of 36,000+ followers, raised this question on his Facebook page days ago.
When I found the post on my newsfeed, I immediately knew my response to his question wouldn't sit well with some of his followers. But I gave it anyways:
My response should only be read if conservatives are legitimately interested in seeing more Black people vote for conservative candidates and the GOP.
As expected, some Black Conservatives responded to my remarks unfavorably:
"I so sincerely disagree. We have to tell people the TRUTH and hope they understand that they are responsible for themselves. Time to stop coddling to black folks...Black folks have been coddled for so long and NOTHING changes the heart." - Katrina
"It's futile and tiring. It's their choice to wake up, but they refuse. Their pride won't let them see the truth. They have to connect the dots on their own. Just like many others have. They are a lost cause in my book. I'm not casting my pearls to swine." - Mimi
Sobering comments considering so many Black Conservatives claim they want to see a major Democratic Exodus.
I shared with Chris in a private message that it really doesn't matter that we think certain Black Americans behave or act in a certain, negative way.
What matters is how our perception of people become a turnoff to those we claim we want to reach.
This, as I've explained in previous articles, is my critique among the conservative base.
Yet, despite what seems to be an "impossible" feat by many Black Conservatives, there is a way to reach Black voters with our message...if we are willing to do things God's way, no matter how uncomfortable it makes us feel.
Leading Black Conservatives Have Had Enough of Candace Owens and Republicans' Passive Attitude Towards Racial Rhetoric
Being Black, female, Christian, and Conservative is probably one of the most controversial identities in America today.
For decades, Black Conservatives have struggled with trying to find our place at the political table to discuss issues we find important.
We are often rejected by our friends and family members because we don't ascribe to the collective thought of being Black and Democrat.
And at times, we are ostracized by those on the Right for causing "division" among the base when we want to tackle social issues that must be addressed.
Many Black Conservatives, by and large, no longer fit within either side of the political spectrum, and it's not hard to see why.
I argue that not only is this type of "displacement" harmful to the conservative base, but it will dramatically alter the way in which some Americans vote for future candidates.
If Conservatives and Believers want to see more candidates in office who represent our values, then Conservatives must take a hard look at what we are doing wrong.
Bless the Lord, Believer!
Just the other day, I was talking to a fellow Conservative about the complexities of holding such values.
So often, Black Conservatives like myself are judged and misjudged as being blind to the real issues plaguing our marginalized communities. From groups such as these, we are called coons, sell-outs, and uncle Toms.
On the other hand, when Black Conservatives like myself do address topics dealing with racial, social, and political injustices, we are called "Chumps" or liberals or RINOS...again, because we seem to be discussing issues that the Conservative base wants nothing to do with.
So, the question stands: What does it mean to be a conservative? What does it mean to be a Black Conservative?
