Thoughts on true friendships

It’s a fact that Reach Magazine TV host Sherrie Marlene loves God and reads the bible on a daily basis.  Whenever she finds a scripture that really hits home, she wants to share it with her friends and family to bring a little light to someones day. Since all of you reading are her extended family she wanted to share a scripture that caught her eye.

Proverbs 27:6 “Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses.”

“I feel it’s a person’s responsibility to be completely honest with a friend. A person should always have a friend’s best interest at heart, even if it causes an uncomfortable situation.  You never want to be the person who tells a friend what they want to hear (essentially lie to them) to avoid hurting their feelings, this could lead to potential disaster depending on the severity of the situation.  Remember, “An honest answer is like a kiss on the lips” (Proverbs 24:26). “A kiss on the lips” is a lot better than a slap on the face, which a lie tends to feel like!.” ~ Follow Sherrie Marlene on Twitter!

Get to know the Real J.O.

Reach Magazine TV co-host Jeffrey Osbourne, better known as J.O., opens up about his goals, fears, hobbies and life as a father.J.O. in Soulful Commandoe

Q: What lessons have you learned from fatherhood?

A: Patience, I know sometimes we ask GOD to give us patience, but he doesn’t always. He always puts us in a situation where you have to be patient. I’ve learned everyone has different levels of learning. Instead of getting mad at my son, I have to get to the root of why my son is crying.  

Q: Is there anything you fear? If so, have you faced your fear and how did you overcome it?

A: Yes, I fear a lot. My biggest fear is that I won’t live up to being the man of God that I’m supposed to be. I fear that I may step out of my calling. I still overcome it everyday because I have to realize I already have been equipped with it. I’m where I need to be and the only person that can take me out of my situation is myself. When I get complacent is when the fear becomes reality. So I’ve got to keep moving and keep trying for my best.

Q: What do you do for fun?

A: I am 22-year-old senior citizen (laughs). I like to mountain bike, I recently picked up rock climbing. I like fishing and spending time with my family. Hanging out with my son and teaching him how to play basketball and you know– enjoying life. Oh, I skateboard too and snowboard. I’m a jack of all trades.

J.O. kickin itQ: You have a unique fashion sense. Describe it to me. What would you NOT wear?

A: Man, I would describe my fashion sense as chameleon-like because I’ve learned to be versatile. Fashion is not a brand, it’s what you make it.  Rock penny loafers with camouflage shorts and butterfly collars – that’s what makes you! My fashion speaks…what my mind is speaking. By the way, I will never wear bell bottoms.

Q: What’s one thing you want to, but haven’t tried?

A: Whitewater kayaking.

Q: Not only the co-host of Reach Magazine TV, you are also the producer of a new TV show: PUSH. What made you move into more behind the scenes role? How does it feel to be in this position?

A: What made me want to get involved is the opportunity to do what I love while making a living. Being behind the scenes is refreshing because sometimes you just want to be the silent voice.

Q: What do you hope to accomplish with Reach and Push? Are those different goals?

A: Actually they go hand in hand. I really just want the shows to be used and available to those in need, both these shows depict fun and positivity (a lot like my personality). Ultimately, it allows me to show my heart’s desire –to see others succeed.

Q: When did you know you wanted to be in the entertainment industry?

A: Well, I have always loved to sing, but as a child I was faced with many challenges. I grew up in a home where my parents not only struggled with their marriage, but also with various addictions. As the oldest of three, I became responsible for my younger siblings at an early age. My family and I were faced with many obstacles which made making music a priority nearly impossible.

Q: How did you get into the music industry?

A: It was not until after I was married and had my two children that I really felt like God was calling me to my passion for music. I began to sing on the worship team at church, where I met someone who introduced me to the possibility of creating a name for myself as an artist. I have met some amazing people who are very familiar and experienced in the music industry, and I am very excited to see what path God has planned for me.

Q: What genre of music do you perform?

A: I am a fan of mostly all music, so it was hard for me to decide what style of music I wanted to devote myself to. I originally started with a rock style of music, which I loved, but I decided I had to focus on what I was raised with, which is pop and R&B. I love soulful music that makes you want to dance and sing along with. Growing up music was my escape, so my goal is to create music that people can relate to through my life experiences.

Q: Who is your inspiration?

A: God and my family. The possibilities are endless with God, and that alone is an inspiration for me. One of my biggest inspirations is my sister. I want her to see that regardless of how many odds are against you, you can still pursue your dreams. I want her to see even if you’re married, have children and many responsibilities; you can still succeed at what God’s called you to do. I want to live my life as an example to her.

Q: How has God been an inspiration and influence in your life?

A: God has blessed me with the opportunity of being a mother to my two little boys. He has also allowed me the opportunity to take on guardianship of my brother and sister the last 5 yrs. At the age of 20, I didn’t realize how much of a blessing the two crazy teenagers would turn out to be. God allowed me to take on such an important role in their young lives, and through that I learned how crucial it is for young men and woman to be influenced positively.

Q: What are you looking forward to accomplishing with Reach Magazine TV?

A: Young men and women need someone to relate to, they crave the opportunity to “fit” in. I believe through Reach Magazine TV that J-Love, J.O. and I will be able to positively reach out to young men and women. We’ll be able to demonstrate how to live lives according to God and still have fun and be “cool”.

My own personal goal is to reach out to teenage girls. After riding the many emotional roller coaster rides with my sister and all of the peer pressure she dealt with, I realized our younger female generation is not receiving the guidance necessary to make it to early adult years.
