So with that authority and those credentials, I asked my cousin to join me on the podcast to discuss a few last minute key issues that could help voters make their final decision.

We discuss social just reform, school to prison pipeline and why he was still sitting on the fence. We talk about his run as a Republican candidate for the Texas State House and why he chose that party.

This political banter that you will hear between Reginald and I is extremely calm and informative, although bias towards a particular candidate.

I wanted to use my platform to educated, inform and remind you all that Tuesday, November 3rd is the LAST day that you can vote, so please use your voice, the way I am using my own.

My name is Lisah “Elle” Moore, and I approve this message.

Season Three: In Their Closet Featuring Howard Grant, April Grant & Tabitha Grant Part 2

Thank you Mad Studios for the new beat on our intro. Now, let’s get down to the Nitty Gritty!

This is a tough episode… Not because it’s hard to hear, but because it’s hard to hear! LOL! It is my fault, the audio was not correct. But move passed that to enjoy a conversation between three daughters and their father, who was also a dogmatic, legalistic preacher.

Along with my Dad, my sisters, April Grant, Tabitha Grant and I discuss our attire and the foundation that groomed our views on fashion today. My father breaks down his background on the scriptures and teachings that fed into his views of how a Christian woman should dress.

Our conversation is full of laughs as we go down memory lane discussing how we became the women we are today from head to toe.

Enjoy!

Season Three: In Their Closet Featuring Howard Grant Part 1

Howard Grant is a man known by many names but to me, he’s Dad. He joins me on season three of the podcast to discuss the private and dark thoughts that he has held for over thirty years and discusses the consequences that nearly took his life.

Under the leadership of Bishop Johnson, at twenty one years old, Grant led many to Christ. Evangelizing to those in Mexico, Canada, Houston, Temple, Conroe [Texas] until finally settling down with his family of four in a small town in Central Texas. Pastor Grant established churches in Lake Charles and Jennings, Louisiana before becoming a pastor of his own church in the late eighties.

While a ministering at Deliverance Temple Holiness Church in Temple, Texas, Grant was known for his extremely radical services. He moved around the lyrics for songs that were recognized by Jimmy Hendrix fans and reincarnated them into soulful melodies hummed on Sunday mornings.

Members were known to “clock in” for fellowship services that lasted over four to six hours with many expressions on praise and worship. Yet, his dogmatic views on “Homosexuality, Misogyny and Modesty” were just a few reasons that he was highlighted and featured in the Texas Monthly Magazine in the 1980’s and The Austin American-Statesman newspaper.

Members led aggressive street teams to witness to sinners by explaining that they would, “Die and go to Hell” without Christ’s teaching, under Grant’s leadership. This despotic doctrine led members to eventually cast out The Grants from their own church when their pastor was found to be in a controversial position that did not align with the church’s views. Even if it meant removing their own evangelist, congregants were hurt, confused and decidedlysevered all ties with Grant.

Turning to self medicate his inward wounds and feed his personal demons, we soon see how the cloak to blend in and escape God took on a thirty year journey to know how to speak to The Waymaker. With Howard’s voice today, we hear his truth.

More importantly, we speak on God’s forgiveness and never ending love, mercy and grace. We walk away knowing that God will never give up on you even if you have given up on yourself. There are many names that people have called Howard Grant; Judge, Prophet Grant, Baby Unknown Grant, Dad… but it’s not what people call you, it’s how they relate to you.

Dad and I discuss how his interpretation of my dream was the inception of the podcast and how exactly my “Moses Project” came to be. We discuss his years in ministry, his past struggles and how he lost his voice; literally and physically.

We hope that you can relate to my Dad’s story this evening and that you are blessed by the sound of his voice.

Side Note: The song played at the end of the podcast is called, “Like a Good Neighbor” by The Rance Allen Group. The lyrics of this song are a beautiful narrative of the actions that my father experience while experiencing a stroke. It is because of that “good neighbor” that he is well, healthy and alive today. Our family thanks you.

God Bless.

Season Two: In Their Closet Featuring Closet Chats

As Season Two comes to an end, we leave with a bang!

On this episode of In Their Closet, we speak with Earlene Buggs, Host and Executive Producer of the hit show featured on Facebook, Closet Chats.

Earlene Buggs, Christina Murray and Felicia Henderson are the three host that makeup the Facebook Digital TV show, Closet Chats. Earlene goes into detail about the backstory of the show and shares how her connection with the women came to be. These stunning women have created a lot of buzz as three boss women discussing topics such as “Spotting A Fake Friend”, “Colorism”, “This is America” and more all while in a 3300 square foot closet. Closet Chats airs for up to 20 minutes per episode and the first show debuted on March 8th in honor of Women’s History Day.
The ultimate goal of the show is to discuss topics related to women, family, entertainment and day to day issues. 

Earlene Buggs is referred to as “The Physician” – A girl’s girl and fashionista, Earlene is a wife, mother, and CEO. Her words may cut with honesty, but her genuine spirit & wisdom will have you walking away new and better than ever.

Felicia Henderson is known as “The Philosopher” – Felicia is a dedicated wife, mother, entrepreneur, and the founder of the “Inspire” organization. Her rants may ruffle a few feathers, but you won’t watch an episode without walking away with a new catchphrase or perspective.

Christina Murray is “The Peacemaker” – Christina is the founder of the Boss Lady Network, realtor, and inspirational speaker who spent many years working in ministry. Her experiences are her truth and she means what she says… but always with non-filtered honesty.

While Christina and Felicia were unable to join us in the studio , we did spend a little under an hour talking to Earlene about her Top Drawer Secrets while sharing a little Dirty Laundry. (I refer to it as ‘Dirty Language’ during the podcast, a Freudian Slip, while we were discussing the hate and judgement that some women speak over others.) The ugly truth and taboo subjects are all covered during this nonstop conversation full of extra ideas that will take up more space in your closet.

My favorite quote in this episode is when Earlene says, “Whenever I do something for a person, I ask God to help me forget. And whenever someone does something for me, I ask Him to help me remember.” Earlene, we loved your kind and humble spirit and we are cheering on the success for the new show. Tune in to Closet Chats for more episodes from the ladies!

Season Two: In Their Closet Featuring Rashid Floyd of Nelson Balka

On this special edition of Couture Careers, meet Rashid Floyd.

I met this young man over twenty years ago at a fraternity party in the summer of 1995. College parties were the norm and after crossing paths multiple times that summer, we became friends before he escaped to play basketball in Mobile, Alabama.

Rashid Floyd is the designer of the brand, Nelson Balka. During this podcast, Floyd walks us through the story behind his label’s name and introduces us to the man who represented it.

“NB” Nelson Balka, is an up and coming fashion house based in Houston, TX.  It’s fashionable street-chic couture line is inspired by a mix of American and European cultures.  Nelson Balka is a luxury brand created by American designer and entrepreneur Rashid A. Floyd.  
Using the name of his beloved late grandfather Nelson Balka, Mr. Floyd founded and established NELSON BALKA CLOTHING in the spring of 2009.  Mr. Floyd credits his sense of style to his late grandfather.  Born in 1913, Nelson Balka, the man, was synonymous with class, style and sophistication.  Mr. Floyd interprets his classic and unique style to create a casual, yet sophisticated collection for the young, fashion forward socialite. The brand has quickly garnered the attention of celebrities, professional athletes and entertainers.
The timeless and unmistakable  “NB” logo is a staple of the brand that will be recognized the world over.

During the podcast, we quickly learn about the trials and error of building a company from the ground up as well as the fancy footwork and many hands involved in the popularity of growing the designer’s label. Rashid salutes the movers and shakers in Houston, like Slim Thug, that helped influence his brand and propel it to it’s initial height during it’s introduction phase. He gives insight about life’s challenges that affected Nelson Balka’s delay in the years that followed and speaks on a recent momentum of “By Way of Houston”.

Floyd also discusses his past career choices and walks us through his early days when he began to build his resume. We learn about his work ethic, his versatility as a boy from the country and a man in the city and how that has guided his determination and drive. On the road to success, the journey takes twist and turns. Listen as Rashid share’s God’s design for his life.

Season Two: In Their Closet Featuring Cassandra Daniels

In Their Closet introduces Couture Careers, a storytelling segment where entrepreneurs take us through their journey down memory lane. Here, their resumes come to life as they share personal trials and triumphs that led to their paid passion.

Today, we feature the unlikely story of a housewife turned attorney, Cassandra Daniels.

As a new single mother of two, she tenaciously pursued her goal overcoming every obstacle that she faced. While doing so, Cassandra also worked as a paralegal in the area of family law. As a licensed attorney, Cassandra employs that same bulldog tenacity representing her client’s interest. She is a zealous advocate and is not afraid of the courtroom!

Cassandra provides her clients with the highest quality of representation and legal counsel. She is aggression in its most elegant form.

Her story of relentlessness to pursue her goals for herself and to make a better life for her children is a motivational voice for all. She shares of her dreams being deferred, her long career as a college student and the hard choices she made to save her family.

We go behind the scenes to look past the lifestyle of a pretty face with curves. This Preacher’s Kid soon realizes that being a “Real Housewife in High School” may have just been a portion of the women that she could become. Despite the slight deviation from her dream as a young girl in the seventh grade, Cassie (as I affectionately call her) quickly resets her goals and never stops trying to complete them. Cassandra takes us on her long anticipated walk to cross the finish line where we find that she is just getting started!

Cassie’s story reminds us, there is no expiration date on a dream being pursued. Enjoy!

Season Two: In Their Closet Introducing GIRL CHAT

We celebrated Galentine’s Day together with a pampered meal, libations and a lot laughs! Eavesdrop into our conversation as we discuss dating in 2019 as an entrepreneur.

This is an extremely rowdy podcast as we were laughing and sipping our French 75’s and you know how we ladies can get when we are together! But the conversation is worth the thirty minute listen. I promise to try and keep it clear and concise, but for this special occasion, thanks for understanding.

Galentines Day is a celebration of female friendship, invented by the Parks and Recreation character, Leslie Knope, played by Amy Poehler, which occurs every year on Feb. 13, the day before Valentine’s Day. Galentine’s Day is but a few years old, but it’s an increasingly popular holiday. We decided to celebrate on the actual day, February 14th.

The ladies are a group of professionals: an attorney, a realtor, a small business owner, a chef and myself, and we discuss all the drama of dating as an entrepreneur, a woman of God and a woman in her forties. Laugh with us and enjoy. Cheers!
