Very thankful for my sister-N-law Marebelle for joining us
this holiday season. She has been the perfect poinsettia
for our son Jarel in so many ways.


Words cant...............
Thank You Great Spirit of Truth!
  


Happy birthday to our first son Jarel on this day of November 18, 2014.....just days shy of my favorite grandmother Delores; who smiles from the sky.
Salamat Po Tatay God for the safe delivery & good health of my ganda wife and son. Major shot out to the hospital staff & owner for their exceptional professionalism and hospitality.
I really appreciate those of you who have sent greetings of love and tidings of joy via prayer,
God Bless You All!

Family life is one the most important aspects of God's great Creation. It contains the reflection of pure Love that nurtures and disciplines in order to protect its essence. When you here the word Family, it has the ability to instantly tame a memory that's True and never fading. These post are dedicated to inspire Family Life!



My Wife & I with little one on the way!


My Queen!


Our Son Jarel!

After journeying “35 Times Around the Sun,” I am blessed that our awesome Creator gave me a beautiful wife and our little prince, eager to arrive. I know my favorite grandmother’s Delores, Clara & Mary are somewhere smiling in the sky. I can’t wait to bring him back to the states so he can feel the love of his grandparents, uncles, aunts & cousins. I could barely take my eyes off the screen, thank you God for smiling on us!



Family Love from Crystal Hamilton Fahrner & Family!


My cousin Larissa, Brother Jose & their daughter Gabby!


Surprise visit to Kesia's School, Read Story below.

Our surprise trip to Quezon Province to see my little sister Kesia, Inay Linda & Tatay Pete here in the Philippines was very rewarding, on so many levels. Kesia had the biggest smile on her face having no idea that I would visit her in school. Not only was she happy to see me & my wife, but her sister Keren was with us as well, a triple dose of love.  All the kids were excited asking thousands of questions at a high speed rate!
                I was very humbled when I learned that the student’s teacher Ms. Wilma, who is pictured in red standing behind me; is a Cancer Survivor! She continues to do her monthly therapy while still continuing to teach. This is very inspirational, to see an individual who is dedicated to her life’s purpose, putting the kid’s needs above hers. Although they have no air condition like I did when I was in a kid in school, they are the most energetic kids that listen to instructions carefully. Ms. Wilma also welcomed me to join them again and I am definitely looking forward to that.
                I am very happy to be apart of Kesia’s life and consider her as my sister, the support of family goes a very long way. For those of you that don’t know, Kesia is the little girl on the front cover of my 5th book, Philippine Dream “More Rice Jamal.” Her family has a very special place in my heart. I remember when I often surprised my little niece Marcedes back in the United States, when I would return home on leave from the US Navy. My dad informed me that just by her seeing me there allowed her to feel family support, in return it ultimately motivated her to crave learning. Inay Linda, Kesia’s mother says that she has the highest grade on a consistent level in her class! The future of the Philippines looks very great!


My Inay Linda Surprised!


Keren, Inay & Maremy

Our prince will arrive any day now!

Cheers to Dr. Stan McGahey, one of my favorite instructors @ Saint Leo University. As a fellow veteran, writer and traveler
 he has greatly impacted my life with his great wisdom and encouragement, I'm happy to consider him 'Family.'

Toys for Bata!

Pray for Philippines

Greetings Human Family,
I ask for all of your prayers as this great country of the Philippines braces yet again for another Super Typhoon. Of course last year Super Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) claimed the lives and displaced more than 7,350 people in November and still in recovery mode. Despite what may seem as a hopeless plea on the behalf of foreigners, know that the human family is not foreign and I still believe in prayer. These are our brothers and sisters whom have suffered a great deal to date and I don’t think prayer will hurt.

I have set up a relief post via the Municipality of Malvar Local Government Unit San Pioquinto, Malvar, Batangas where anyone could send relief items in light of this Super Typhoon or the previous storms that battered this country.

If you would like to donate "Toys for Bata" (Kids)
or any Charitable Contribution in relief effort.
You may send items directly here in the Philippines
or the address below.

(Be sure to read customs info & website info thoroughly)

My father will send all items to ME here in the Philippines "boots in dirt", I will then give the items to the many displaced families and "Bata" that were displaced by the recent Typhoon & Earthquake. 
Thank you all for your prayers & support thus far!



Maganda People 11/15/13


Typhoon Yolanda’s catastrophic storm has taken many beautiful lives here in the Philippines but it will never erase the memories & imprint of those who were lost. The Philippine community have shown me a kind of love that’s unequal to most places that I have visited around the world. As a member of the human family I find it highly necessary to give back in some way & not forget the recent events that’s taken place.
I have placed the Kobo Edition of my book Philippine Dream “More Rice Jamal” Free to download for limited time and reduced price on all books after that limited time expires.



From the Bureau of Customs, Department of Finance

Donated relief goods are exempted from import duties provided they are properly consigned to DSWD or to any DSWD-accredited organization. In addition, the exemption is granted through a documentation and recording process. It is the mandate of the Bureau of Customs to record all items imported into the Philippines. For this purpose, we have set up a One-Stop Shop to expeditiously process importations of donated relief goods and equipment for the calamity-response operations. Certain items, such as medicine, telecommunications equipment and agricultural products are subject to clearance by regulatory agencies like the Food and Drug Administration, the National Telecommunications Commission, and the Department of Agriculture. We have invited them to be part of our One-Stop Shop.


customs.gov.ph



The Kindle Edition will be $0.99 to download as well starting on 16thNov 2013 Only for those of you who are in the US time zone. All earnings will be forwarded to a “legitimate” charitable contribution center here in the Philippines and prices will be reduced on all books after limited time expires.



The Nook Edition will follow suit in the coming days so those who can’t afford to buy may see the love that I already know of in this great Philippine Country. Sometimes we all have to give back!




This is a personal effort on my behalf to help many helpless and hopeless people of the human family. I have been blessed to give much of my own money to many people here in the Philippines but I doubt you will hear of that on various major news outlets. I help those who seriously need help here because there are crooks everywhere even in churches who only want money at the expense of others Pity and ruined state, even their own brothers! This is a new year and a continuous effort to improve our social challenges locally and internationally!

God Bless those of you who have supported me in any endeavor that I have ventured whether United States Navy or all of my books that I have written...



I am humbled and truly grateful to be apart of Life's Solution!

New Release- Sweetness in Air by Favre "Mississippi Legends"




Book is available on the links below and available 
through all retailers worldwide,
click on the following links:








This was "by far" one of the most rewarding books that I have had the honor of writing on a variety of levels. The historical impact that sports have in today's society is a sprung from a template of legends. I truly believe if we have any hope of keeping the integrity of sports intact and preserving one of our precious jewels. 

The "leaders of the pack" must learn of these great legends and study their superior blueprint and take that torch that they left.  Money will come and go but legends live forever. Growing up as a kid in Columbia, Mississippi; I was blessed to witness the efforts of greatness in the world of sports. I hope this artful sketch inspires future sports prospects and aspiring poets to continue to tweak their moral compass into a more prudent fashion.




The overall theme of the book is "creative art," just as the ancient legends left their mark inside the walls of caves and on various other items fashioned in clay. I designed the book to have a velvet like texture particularly the middle strip, which has
symbolic pieces of a leather football and words scripted in gold.




Free Book Sample:


“Sweetness” played with heart and determination and for me the way he ran….was like he was saying something.
Poetry in Motion!

This is my interpretation of what he was saying….

I know you think I’m just a country boy from Mississippi and you wonder how I got here.
I tell you how…
Give me the ball #9…
Yes I came from the rough South and the blood of kings flow through my veins but this time I’m not on the cotton fields of Mississippi.
The picture isn't what you thought it would be but this is what is.

Move over critics take this stiff arm -- yes I went to what you call tiny Jackson State University stop trying criticize my potential and crush the hopes of those who aspire as me.
It’s not so much of where I came from its where I’m going, can’t you see?
I just crossed the 30 yard line…

Get off me middle linebacker you take this elbow to the chest, did you think I would stop because you seem bigger than me? Well let me tell you what you didn't see…my Heart!
I just crossed the 35…

Oh…you sent another one the same size? Did you forget that I graduated from tiny Jackson State as you often remind me? This is wisdom that anticipated you coming so move out of the way and take the other elbow, I have  community to inspire,
I’m crossing the 50…

Excuse me defensive back I understand your duty but you must understand you will not stop me, didn't you see Soul Train? My feet are quick watch this move…
I’m crossing the 40 into the 20…

Just me and you “free safety” your name has such humor, because you are free to watch me high-step into history with my true family of fans in one hand like I often carry and my fist high in victory!

Touchdown!





Home on leave few years back, visiting my old high school and  appreciating the 
Statue of Walter Payton, in which the field is now named after.

You will have to get the book to see the rest :)




Back of Book


"Search Inside" closer view via Amazon.com,
follow THIS link.

If there ever was a time that our 21st century era of sports could benefit from golden history lessons, it is now. The ancient Epic of Gilgamesh reveal truths of great value from a legendary hero king, the epigrams from Marcus Martialis capture the heart of Roman gladiators & inspirational icon Nelson Mandela embraced sports with a wise gesture in the name of peace. Sweetness in Air by Favre metaphorically defines the heroic legends of those that inspired my life in the "Magnolia South."

The wise should consider their immortal efforts in their respective craft & approach challenges with heart, determination & will to succeed.

Aspiring poets also have a great opportunity to utilize the literary platform to inspire & heal where everyone can win....or decay where no one wins. Walter Payton, Brett Favre & Steve McNair won my respect & admiration for the great humanitarians that they are.
               


Thank You



To those who started from humble beginnings
 and leaped from the trampoline of 
hope and 
landed in the atmosphere of opportunity.
 Keep innovating, keep inspiring and keep Living!

These Eyes Have Seen Love…..These Eyes Have Seen Hate….These Eyes Have Seen Peace…These Eyes Have Seen War….How long will we fight for Peace? If all the great leaders were alive and on the same stage, I do believe the Spirit of Truth would be revealed in a peaceful manner. Holding the torch that Muhammad Ali once held felt like destiny handed me a torch that represents so much more… than These Eyes Have Seen. ..deuces from the “Thriller in Manila” — in Manila, Philippines.

Inspiring the future is always a rewarding feeling! Shalom from Makati, Philippines!


Enjoyed giving the kids their awards after a 2 month long season! They all asked me to be apart of their special moment. How could I refuse?


Enjoyed giving the kids their awards after a 2 month long season! They all asked me to be apart of their special moment. How could I refuse?


Always making time for the kids, they remind me of my youth when I had thousands of questions.



Perfect view of the Batangas Mountain's along with the kids awaiting to be awarded their trophy's.


What a joy it was to be apart of the finishing touch of hard work.


This season I wear #50 in honor of my parents surpassing the monumental age that I hope to reach and beyond. 50 symbolize joy, celebration, new beginnings & spiritual freedom. Thankful to God for great parents that wanted there sons and daughters to live a life of true freedom. Love You Peeps!! A small gesture of generosity that means a great deal. Like "More Rice Jamal".... 


Hot Springs in the mountains are proven to be very therapeutic...even more so when love accompanies you. Deuces from Laguna PI !! — in Laguna, Philippines



Seasons Greetings from the Philippines.



Love is Artful...


Great Appreciation of Asian Cultural Attire


Many people have asked me how do I continue to strive forward in a progressive manner having dealt with so many past challenges. 
"What is your Secret Jamal?" 
Love is my Secret! 
I entered Love in all equations of my Life and it motivated the ambition and desire to live through whatever 
challenge that I have faced.
It has not been easy by far but I offer that
Secret
to humanity. Enter Love in any equation and it causes an in dept research into problems that we face. Therefore tweaking overlooked blockades that stops the flow of progression.
Yes the problems will be challenging
but the earth will benefit from the fruit of 
Love and spin happily on its axis
and we will reap the kiss of True progression
from Heaven above.
That is my Secret.

can touch many hearts.

Serving in the United States Navy in 2008 onboard USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) was my first visit to the Philippines in the humanitarian relief effort of Typhoon Fengshen.
How could I forget that hot day in June. As we pulled into the South China Sea I could not believe the things that my eyes were seeing. Seeing people lose everything they had in this tragedy, their homes and families, reminded me of Hurricane Katrina in my country the United States of America.
So I made a promise to one day go back and visit the Philippines to myself and several of my Filipino Kuyas & Ates that I met while in the Navy. It is now 2013 and I fulfilled my promise and my life will never be the same.
Philippine Dream "More Rice Jamal"...reveals hard truths of daily living and hope for a better tomorrow. This inspired me to reconsider my lifestyle in my Great country of America.
I saw the Dream in their eyes and I saw the light of hope in their heart. I am blessed that the Creator of the Universe allowed a country boy like me from Columbia, Mississippi...to share to the world what this Dream is all about.
