Duck Dynasty’s Missy Robertson launches new jewelry line, ‘Laminin by Missy Robertson

Written by Staff on April 21, 2016 – 3:54 pm -

Missy Robertson

West Monroe, La. (April 20, 2016) – One of the most important missions to Missy Robertson and her family has always been to work selflessly to help others find faith and happiness through charity. In that vision, Missy Robertson has created the jewelry line ‘Laminin by Missy Robertson’ and established The Laminin House to provide jobs for women in the West Monroe area who are in need of work while creating a quality product—a jewelry collection embodying a rustic and feminine feel with materials from all over the world. The jewelry consists of natural stones and beads with mixed metals, deer horns, Druzy stones, leather, rosary beads, and more.

unnamedThe company has a prospective goal of establishing hubs all across the United States, and will serve as a ministry to women coming out of hard situations and need assistance finding a way to break into the workforce, such as women coming out of sex trafficking, homelessness, single mothers and women in need of a purpose.

“The word “Laminin” is a molecular protein that holds everything in our bodies together. And this particular protein, if looked through a microscope is in the exact shape of the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ!,” shares Robertson. “He is in all things And In Him all things hold together is a verse taken by Colossians 1:17. This meaning means more than our bodies, but our community of Laminin ladies that will be a part of this jewelry line!”

Not only will ‘Laminin by Missy Robertson’ provide a safe, positive and empowering working community for local women in need, they will also focus on supporting local charities by designing and selling signature pieces once a month with 100% of the profit from that limited-edition piece benefiting a specific worker and the non-profit of her choice. ‘Laminin by Missy Robertson’ has already begun these partnerships with several local philanthropies, including Project 41 and Heartfelt Ministry.

Larry Gatlin

Larry Gatlin’s illustrious career marches on as new opportunities arise

Larry Gatlin is no stranger to the stage. However, the stages have become more varied over the course of his career.
The eldest of the Gatlin Brothers doesn’t just step on the stage to sing, though he still performs a host of dates with his brothers Rudy and Steve.

Larry Gatlin

Larry Gatlin

The Texas native and current Nashville resident is a songwriter, an actor, a political and social contributor, and he has also served as a television host.
However, even with those numerous endeavors, Larry Gatlin’s feet are still firmly entrenched in musical soil.
We recently sat down with Gatlin to talk about his adventurous past, the present journey and what lies in the road ahead. His feedback is as follows …

 

LARRY GATLIN & THE GATLIN BROTHERS PERFORM "AN AMERICAN WITH A REMINGTON" ON FOX & FRIENDS

LARRY GATLIN & THE GATLIN BROTHERS PERFORM
“AN AMERICAN WITH A REMINGTON” ON FOX & FRIENDS

What’s your current touring schedule like, and do you mix some solo performances along with the performances with your brothers?

People say, ‘why don’t you retire?’ I say, ‘I’ve become real accustomed to eating three meals a day.’ We made a lot of money. We paid our tithes, but we weren’t very good with our money. The good news is we made a lot of money. The bad news is we don’t have a lot left. We still love music. I do some solo performances, and Steve and Rudy also (do select performances without Larry).

HEAR THE MUSIC, SEE THE MOVIE, HELP A HERO

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on April 5, 2016 – 12:29 pm -

HEAR THE MUSIC, SEE THE MOVIE, HELP A HERO

HEAR THE MUSIC, SEE THE MOVIE, HELP A HERO

Following the recent release of  their Patriotic song, I Will Stand, popular trio Allegiance is proud to announce the I Will Stand Tour. This special tour finds them teaming up with SGMA Hall of Fame member, Nick Bruno, Country Music Legend, T Graham Brown, Patriotic organization Helping a Hero and Ben Graham Productions of the I Will Stand film. On most occasions, this tour will be a two day event featuring a concert on the first day and showing of the I Will Stand film the second. Proceeds will benefit Helping a Hero to build specialty homes for wounded Veterans.

Songwriter Jake Sammons says “My family is full of men and women who served our country. Patriotism is a strong cord that binds our hearts together as Americans. I see that cord beginning to unravel in this day and age and wanted to encourage other Christians to cling tightly to the rights and choices that we are granted in this, the Greatest Country on Earth. This song is an encouraging word to all Americans to hold fast to the foundation that our forefathers left for us.”
Regarding the tour, Kasey Kemp of Allegiance comments , “After Jake wrote the song, we began seeking opportunities to honor our American heroes with the music and beyond. We were blessed to meet Helping a Hero through Lee Greenwood (singer/songwriter of God Bless the USA) and connect with their mission. At the same time, God allowed our paths to cross with T Graham Brown who shares our vision to honor American heroes. Adding to the mix our producer, music legend Nick Bruno, and the blessing of being in the I Will Stand film, this tour began to take shape.
Allegiance is honored to have Nick Bruno joining the tour on piano. Concerning honoring our American heroes, Nick recalls, “My dad was a WWII veteran. He died last year and was buried with military honors. When they handed me the folded American Flag I was overcome with emotion. Whenever I see and hear our Heroes being honored I swell up with pride. I am blessed and honored to be a part of the “I Will Stand” tour. We should never forget!”
This special, limited, Patriotic tour is scheduled in eight cities with capacity crowds expected at each event. T Graham Brown enthusiastically adds, “It’s gonna be a great time honoring our American heroes and praising God. Come on out to hear the music, see the movie and help a hero.”

“Believers in a loving merciful God will be affirmed,” Colleen Gerke, president of the National Association of Catholic Family Life Ministers, said.

“I left the movie feeling inspired with the hope of Heaven, assured of the goodness of God and filled with a renewed passion for my faith,” Pastor Mike Johnson of Fellowship Church, Dallas, said.

“Audiences come thinking they need a miracle, and leave with new eyes for miracles all around them,” says Producer DeVon Franklin, head of Franklin Entertainment. “In time for Easter, MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN is about new life, new awareness, a new wave of gratitude.”
