“The Story U-Are Writing Matters"

Thank you Amy aka Drop The Mic, for creating the 1st ever speech The U-CAN! Man presented on April 30, 2017.
I called the message: “The Story U-Are Writing Matters". I used the acronym S.I.M.P.L.E to share with Valdosta State University to help them understand that the story they’re writing really matters. Amy as I was preparing for this presentation, I spent over a week focusing on the "S.I.M.P.L.E" acronym, message you create to ensure students that they have the resources to improve their college success.


This is the part of MY story that I decided to share.

I shared with the students the time of my life beginning in high school in 1978, earning just 1 "A" in 10th grade P.E.

In 2009 my children: Joshua (10th grade), Caleb (8th grade), Joy (2nd grade), Christian (2 years old) and Joel yet to be born came to me and said "Daddy you cannot tell us anything about college because you only earned 1 A in high school” and laughed about it.

After that conversation,
I realized the story I had wrote wasn’t good enough to them.

2013 the sentence ended with me graduating college with Honors.

Using the "SIMPLE" banner above became the guidance for my entire family. To see the current success of my story.


The biggest part of the success of the Isom family, me graduating with honors Josh earning a master's degree in a week or two Caleb transferring to UGA, doing great with a 4.0 GPA, Joy....all of my children, the success that we have can in part be contributed to a common denominator--my book, Graduating With Honors If I-Can,U-Can!. That book is on each of our cell phones. When we need a reminder, when we need to be uplifted, when we need that Mentor right there with us giving us words of encouragement, when we need the extra push, the tools to succeed--we already have it in the palm of our hands. America I task each of you to get that same tool for yourself to help with your success because it is within your reach, you can have it in your grasp, literally. Pull out your phones because I know each of you have one, and go to You can type in the name of my book or type John Isom and get that tool--use that tool when you think you need that extra push; when you need those words of encouragement from The U-CAN! Man and he's not right next to you to give you those words, pull it up on your phone-my words are in that book along with a number of other individuals testimonies that can help you just as much if not more than it has helped me and my family. America always remember, If I-Can,U-Can!

The U-Can! Man Thank You To Mr Derrick Carter For My 30 April 2017 Invitation

"To speak to people and inspire them; to let them know “You can”; that is one of my greatest joys. When I am able to reach young people and to help them push beyond what they may have thought possible, I am happy. Thank you for allowing me that opportunity. On Sunday, April 30th, I was able to share my story and encourage others to be the best version of themselves and to continue to write their stories, because of your invite. You are doing great things on VSU’s campus for our young people, and I am pleased that you allowed me to be a part of that. As a proud Blazer alumnus, I hope to continue to give back to the VSU community and inspire the young people there. I am willing to come back as often as you feel necessary because I believe in the hard work you are putting forth to retain and graduate students. Thank you again for the opportunity. I look forward to another successful program with Sankofa. See you there. Derrick I made a video for you to share with your awesome team see  Tell them I said U-CAN!

Facing Fears


Unanswered Prayer

Hebrews 11:1

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

in-between: noun Also in-be·tween·er
1.) a person or thing that is between two extremes, two contrasting conditions, etc.:
yeses, noes, and in-betweens; a tournament for professional, amateur, and in-between.
2.) a person who handles the intermediary steps, as in a manufacturing or sales process.

in-between: adjective

1.) being between one thing, condition, etc., and another: a coat for in-between weather.

Hebrews 11:6
"But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe
that he is,
and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."

I have learned that it’s easy to have faith at the beginning and towards the end.
However, what if you have a long period of time in-between your prayer request getting answered?
Your Faith will need to have perseverance and strength to overcome these hard times.

The question of the day is: Do you have enough Faith to wait on His answers?

Mark 11:22 says 
“And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.”
This is present tense Faith.

Do, Doing, Done
