OWN is not your ordinary channel…and Raising Whitley looks like it’s not going to be just another reality show. Comedian and new star of Raising Whitley, Kym Whitley, sat down with OWN Ambassador and A Spoonful of Paolo host, Paolo Presta, to talk about life and a little about her journey. This will give you an insight to why we are Raising Whitley on OWN starting this Saturday…and why we are going to like her so much. Thanks Paolo and Patrick for bringing us a side of Kym that we can share before the big premier. We absolutely LOVE her! And we abosolutely LOVE Paolo and Patrick. For more of their videos, visit them at A Spoonful of Paolo.

The OWN Ambassadors are blessed to have DeVon Franklin joining us for our 12 Days of Celebrating Consciousness. This Author, Hollywood movie executive and preacher is a shining light of love and faith in a world where we are starving for this kind of leadership. DeVon Franklin’s book Produced By Faith is a “How-To” guide on how having faith and trusting in the Lord will only lead you to the greatest of successes.
I was first introduced to DeVon Franklin when he appeared on Super Soul Sunday as a guest of Oprah Winfrey, discussing how to find your life’s true purpose and in turn, talk about his new book, Produced By Faith. If you have not yet read this life changing, view altering life manual, I 100% recommend it! What fantastic insight he has and his words will reach your heart and allow you to see the path you are on, realizing that you just have to be where you are and trust that God has already mapped it out for you. All we have to do is be who he has created us to be. Using his experience in the Hollywood film industry, DeVon’s words allow us to see our lives in the form of a movie.
