I am 48 years old and I am a single parent. I grew up in a broken home. My mom raised me. My birth father was an alcoholic and my stepfather was not honorable towards me and my sister. I owe everything to the determination of my strong mother and her Christian Faith. We did not have much but she worked hard and sacrificed to raise me, my sister, and my two brothers. She lives with hepititas C and even though she has good and bad days, she is the rock of my family. I went on to marry and have two children with a man that was so unfaithful and selfish. I married another man who could not love my children because they had a different father. I now have a daughter who is married to a wonderful man that loves her and their three children unconditionally. I also have a 16 year old son that gives me joy and love each day. It is hard to manage everything alone but God gives me strength and I move forward. I have to thank you for giving me some wonderful movies to lift my spirit. I have watched Why Did I get Married Too so many times and each time I cry. Sheila is me. I relate to her so much. Then I wish I was Helen in Diary of a Mad Black Woman after she gets some strength and takes up for herself. You have helped me and you do not even know me. I am trying to leave my son a legacy just like my mom gave me. Thanks for this video of advice.
Hello Mr.Perry I am a senior, that is a student at Kent State , I would love for you to send me something that I could use for my speech on you , I hope you can help me out. Thanks so much, my speech day is Feb.23,2012
Thank you for sharing your life! I've been so worried about my Son since I caught him using drugs. He's such a wonderful person...beautiful young man. Just the thoughts of him going in that direction in life, even if it's only temporary, gives so much pain to my soul. I've been feeling like a failure as a Mom. So I decided to get him in my time and space as much as possible again and pray WITH him every day...Praising God like I did when he was a little boy. I'm glad I saw your video today. It's good to hear you talk about how your Mother gave you the gift of Jesus. God Bless you always!
I love your honesty and willingness to share. Please keep sharing and taking the time to post your thoughts and advice.
Hi Tyler, I get so excited when I get emails from you. You are so inspirational. You are so talented. You are so on point. You are Blessed, and You are an awesome Leader to all people. Your wisdom builds knowledge in the minds of those like myself to press on, and to move on to the greater things in life. I Believe that something good is happening for Me right now. I have always been a giver. I enjoy helping those who are less fortunate. I Love helping thee physically challeged children, and adults. I help with the sick, and the home bound. I give to the homeless. This is what God ask of us, and is what He wants us all to do, and that is to do for each other, and to be there for one another, no matter what. I get it, and because I get it, I am Blessed. Jesus is the answer to all my prayers. I have a personal relationship with God. Tyler, continue to post all your wonderful messages on your message board. I Love You, and You know God loves You. Keep on keeping on. Have a Bllessed day.
I just want to say that I relate to you and your mother. My mother, whom is still with us, taught me the very same things - Morals, values and about Jesus. She, too, has no legacy to leave us, but she has given me is wisdom on how to live, how to love, and how to respect. There are many quotes that I live by because of her. I am grateful to God, that I have had the opportunity to say "Thank you" to my mother for all that she has given, because what she gave has left me far more rich and wealthy than most. I am not rich or wealthy monetarily, but I am rich and wealthy with my Jesus and my family. That is priceless! I pray that my daughter will one day feel the same way about me....Thank you for who you are in Christ, because all that you share is, indeed, invaluable! God Bless!
Mr. Perry, you are truly a blessing to me! Words cannot express my gratitude to you for sharing your heart-felt inspirations! I have reviewed all of your clips and received a confirmation on the direction God is taking me. Truly, my brother, you are anointed with the Holy Spirit! You are a messenger of God! It is not surprising that He has blessed you so greatly. Each story warmed my heart, but I was really drawn to the foster children and the little boy who was trying to choose which shirt he was going to buy. I was raised in foster care and I know how that Baby must have felt. May God bless you even more for your giving to those who are less fortunate than you; may it return to you pressed, down shaken together, and running over. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Thank you ,very much for the inspiration to know that someone understand means the world only God knows and what comes from the heart reaches the heart.
As I sit here weeping at the different recorded messages all I can say is Thank you.. Now I know why I've chosen you to be my role model. I've said it once and I will say it again you are definitely an Elijah to me and I am your Elisha learning from your every word and example.. I'll love you for life. Everyone can value from the wisdom God's placed in you and I thank him for choosing someone as humble as you to use..
I have been in search of God all my life. My mother didn't take me to church, I went sometimes with friends of the family to different churches and I went to a few on my own as I got to be a teenager. I have never found a place to belong. I have four children and I have taken them to several churches also but we have not been lucky. Maybe I am looking for the wrong thing, idk but I know my children need something. I have one boy and three girls. They have a father that literally lives around the corner but chooses not to be in their lives. My youngest girl takes it the hardest. She is so hateful and mean and so sweet at the same time and I want to help her so bad but I don't know how. she loves her dad so much but he doesn't give it back, she has contemplated suicide and spent a week in a mental hospital, he never showed up. My 19 yr old who had some yrs with her father before he changed also tried to commit suicide the same yr. the middle girl was born with a birth defect and use to ask me all the time why doesn't my daddy love me, shes had over 33 surgeries and he has probably been to 3 of them. The only one that doesn't seem to be too affected is my son who is 13 but I see him reaching out to other men in my family for a father figure. I know a relationship with God would help them so much but I don't know how to give them that, I don't even have it. I don't know what to do anymore.
I have been where you are with 4 children as well. My children have the same issues as yours. Including the evil but loving one. Im here to testify that God and a steady loving Church is the key to it all. I chose to bring my kids to the alter every sunday . Now the evil one is grown very loving and tides at church as well as takes herself to the alter every sunday. She's 23 now just broughther own home graduated from Cornel university is getting her masters at George town and the others are doing the same. I this to say with Gods help all things are possible
Tyler, thank you for your words of wisdom. It seems that the world is down on faith, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for speaking so highly of your faith. God is so good and he always makes a way out of no way. I recently lost the use of one of my arms and I must say has been extremely life changing, but GOD has been my everything in life and will continue to be the forefront in my life. No one will hire me because of my arm situation, even though I have over 13 years of experience and a Bachelor and M***** degree to back my experience up. Without him, my path could have been so different (I may not be here to day). I thank for spreading such positivity and continuing to put God first. I wish you nothing but eternal success and happiness. May God continue to be the head of our lives and bless you in all aspects of your life. Be blessed and never stress because God will always make a way.
Ohh! Brother Perry you made my night. I just finished listening to all your messages and I want to thank you. I am 64 years old now and there are so many things I want to do before I \move to my eternal home and it seems I am moving slow. From tonight on I will concentrate on one thing at a time and I will do what I can with the little I have. I never cease to thank God but tonight my thank yous will spread to even thank God for the little things as well as the great. My children often thank me for the values I instilled in them. We did not have a lot of material things but we had love and that love comes back over and over now that I have grand and great grandchildren. I know that whatever God has for me is for me and I am standing on His Word and I will see my dreams fulfilled. Thank you so much and you are welcome to call me everyday or anyday you feel a need to talk with your mom. I can't take her place but I will make a good substitute. My mother left here when I was 13 and I still talk to her and my husband who has been gone for more than 22 years. God is a great God. Goodnight now son.
