Everytime I come back to visit your site....I always find my way to your inspirational messages...when there's very little encouragement around me.....the videos are a good reminder for me. Thank you for sharing and May God continue to richly bless you. p.s.--I look forward to viewing new ones....(smile)
Hey Tyler, :-) Let's pick back up on the topic of my father. However, let's talk about he & my mother meeting. She was downtown S'port walking w/ Paulette on her hip. Paulette was a lil baby at the time. My mother wasn't interested in my father like that. Even though she had prayed that God would send her a good man. Well, little did she know he was that good man. So for so how long my father chased after my mother all over town. From one relative house to another. Until she finally gave him a chance & they hooked up & the rest is history. Lol... My father was a hard hard worker. Kind & gentle, thoughtful, serious man, father, husband. Keep in mind, he was an older man. My mother had been raised not by her mother(Madea) but by Madea's parents. My mother is the oldest of her siblings. Yes, we had assigned seats all at our dinner table. Lol... We had to say, "excuse me from the table, please" :-) LOL. And each day my mother cooked dinner etc... There was never a time that we could eat or SIP or even be at the table before my father sat at the head of the table to start off the grace as it went around the table to it got back to my father. Then we all could eat. My seat was between Momma & Paulette. I mostly stayed close to Paulette. She got married to Al on her 19th birthday, I was 6th grade at that time. And it was cold & snowing on their wedding day. That was 28 yrs ago on the 2nd of next month. Paulette & I used to be in our room & she would been singing & doing whatever & I would be right there with her. Every step she took, if she was in the restroom doing something to her hair I would be sitting right up there looking at her. That bond between Paulette & I has lasted all these many years. Each of her kids are grown now. And my two are getting on up there too. She helped out a lot. I mean a lot! Lol... That's my girl. I thank God for blessing me with her. Cause she's been more than a sister. She's been my friend. She's been a place where my sons could go & feel right at home. Oops was suppose to be talking about my father, mom, etc & ended up talking about Paulette. Lol... :-) Change subjects!!! :)
This is so true! My mother has always taught me now that where we are in life now is not the end of it and the same for anyone else. I appreciate her love and patience she has shown me. I have learnt that this in indeed true all my life well the 19 years I have been living people have always told me what I was going to be first a professor in physics, an accountant then a doctor. But whenever people would ask me what I wanted to do when I grew up I would say and still do say I'm going to be a performer, a dancer to be precise. I went through a tough time where I secluded myself and only looked to God. He helped me soo much and allowed me to develop into the better person I am today and I've come to realise the reason I've held onto that dream for son long is because its what I am mean to do. I no longer find pleasure in studying anymore because it feels like a chore so I am now seeking to learn about my gift because I too do believe I have something special and I can't wait to find exactly out what it is! I know I was born to ascend to higher heights to inspire and change people for the good, and you are a true inspiration for me also! I respect your work and life journey so much I named my nephew Tyler after you (I am aware this is not your birth name lol)
Tyler your inspirational comments are great powerful. I just publish my book John Henry's Wonderful Marvelous, Magical, Marshmallows. amazon.com. Your words have truly helped me. ty
Hallelujah! These video's are so encouraging, and inspirational. Thank you and God Bless.
"Seasoned" - just know your best is yet to come!
Whether God is walking beside you or carrying you and there maybe times you feel he is not close by your side, however one thing is for sure he hears you!!
Tyler you are so right....I am experiencing this right now....I have just left everything up to Him....He is definitely in control of this situation...Every door is shut, everyone is turning me down....But God promised to make the impossible possible...to make a way where there seem to be no way....My faith is growing and I know that God has already opened up that door it's just a matter of time...
I just listened to this message, and I've been feeling so depressed, frustrated, and ready to throw in the towel today..I just published my first Kindle book on Amazon. I worked so diligently on this project for over a year and a half, editing and re-editing. I was so proud & I felt like I had really accomplished something when I got it published because I had failed at so many other things in my life. Well, it's been 2 weeks today, and I have only sold a whopping 8 copies!! I have tried everything to get the word out about it, all to no avail. So many doors are being slammed in my face. I have sent email after email to people; and the thing is, it's a really hilarious book! In the back of my mind, I have to believe that it's "the little book that could". I pray about it every day. After watching your video, I need to learn to be a little bit more patient, and that everything will come in its own time. Tyler, you have gotten me through a lot of dark days over the last few years, and believe me when I say there'e been a LOT of them. Thank you so much for playing such a big part in my life (even though we have never met)..your words really do mean a lot to me.
Just a suggestion, I am having my first book published it is expected to be released Jan. 2013 through A.H. publishing and I think it would be a good idea if new upcoming authors get together and put together our own book tour... You get things accomplished more when you agree on a thing.. Just a thought.. You can read about my book at www.accordingtoyourfaithministries.com/About.html
I would like to know how did you get your first book publised. I am a writer, also. I have been looking for someone to publish my writtings, but I haven't been abke to find anyone who is willing to pjublish my writtings. If you log on to my website, you will see a link tat says my writtings, there you will be able to read my writtings that I have written so far. I am hoping to get some of them made into a movie. Exspecially my life story. When you read my writtings, I'm sure that you will enjoy them. Some will even bring tears to your eyes. Deffinetly my life story. I hope you enjoy reading them. The ones that you like please leave cooments by each one. Tell others to do the same! Thanks, Sincerly, Cynthia Richard
What I like the most about this message are your honesty and humility. Humility because you are not trying to get credits for what God did in your life. But you are acknowledging Him properly. Honesty because you say clearly that the road to great achivements is not easy, that some doors will be closed, but we just have ask for help to our God [who is always ready to provide]... I also noticed that in most of your movies that discuss life/family matters, you always acknowledge God adequately and I love and respect you for that. Thank you Tyler Perry and may this new year be blessed for you and your relatives.
Thank You for putting up inspirational messages.. This message has really opened my eyes and as you said the Lord close the doors on us for us to come to him. Your "How to be successful" message brought tears to my eyes; and made me really believe that my dream will come true if I would just believe and pray to the Lord.. Thank You Mr.Perry!!
Thank youfor those words of encouragement....you have blessed me and don't even know!..May GOD continue to bless you so you can bless others!
