    Thanks Tyler. I've heard your story and I've watched your stories. I love Madea, especially because she doesn't spare the rod and we are losing that in our generation. I've been Homeless, been apart of Domestic Violence, Substance Abuse, and had children in Foster Care, now I'm helping others. I was listening to all of your different video scenes, and the whole time during you can have whatever you want, all I could think of was I want my son back who just died in a car accident at 28 years old. My children were going to start a Music group with each other after the holidays, but my son was killed October 2011. I was mad at God, so I wasn't really tuning in to what you were saying until I heard your start of "What are you giving your children"? That was the best ending of all endings for me, regarding your "Mother". Thanks, Tyler! GOD is truly working through you, especially in your plays/movies. You have a true anointing to reach somebody like me!

    Mr. Tyler Perry,it is such an honor to be able to see someone not be ashamed to announce what God has done for them. All my life,my mother was sickly she passed away Oct.20,1998,I had just given birth two weeks and three days before that. My mom will always say this"If you meet me today and forget about me,you've lost nothing,but if you meet Jesus today and forget about him,you've lost everything. As a child I knew God was there,but I didn't know that I could try him for myself until I became a single mom on my own,especially after the death of my mother. I was a mother of three at that time and all I had to rely on was those words my mother had instilled in me. Now,today I'm a mother of four and I couldn't or wouldn't raise them no other way than with God!!!

    Hello Mr. Perrry. It is so wonderful to hear you speak about how good God has been to you. It is VERY RARE for stars, celebs, ect., to give God credit for any of their success. Most of the time you hear words like: lucky, chance, breaks, and so forth; but never God. It is inspiring to hear you put God first in your life, and to give God the thanks for blessing you with such talent. Keep testifying about his goodness and his grace.

    Hello Tyler, I am very inspired by you and your drive. Very rearly do people these days give out positive words and vibes. We all have our own roads to travel in life and sometimes we learn from them and sometimes we don't but one thing for sure is that it will change use in one way or another. Lord knows that I have had some triles in my life and I can see where I have grown in different ways and now I can thank God for all he has done for me and my family. My mother is still alive and well but I can remember the times when I was at my lowest and all of a sudden my mother would call me and pray for me on the phone as if she knew I needed her and I would never tell her what was going on in my life but I guess we have such a strong bond that she just knows. GOD is GOOD and he knows what we need.......

    Tyler, Thank you for sending this message today. It 's a Blessing from God. I was reading my word and asking God what do you want me to do? I remembered I had a message from you on-line. I also remembered that every time I needed to read your message my speakers won't work. After I finished reading I opened your message with headphone on to hear the word that God sent you to give. Thank you it was everything I needed to hear and more. May God Bless You

    Your lessons learned have blessed me, my family and youth ministry more than you know. I too lost my mother - July 5, 2010. As an only child, she began to "water" my life while God was still developing my body, mind and soul. When I arrived, she sacrificed everything for me to have the very best that she could afford. She fought for my rights as a child and made sure that I knew my ancestry. As a young woman, my profession and business grew largely in part due to the encouragement and support of my mother, grandparents and Whole Village. Today, I thank God Amighty for her words of wisdom: Trust your instincts; Remember your manners; Never let possessions "own" you; Nurture Your Friendships; Keep your hands clean; Believe in yourself; Be grateful; Treat others the way you want to be treated; Always keep playing; No matter what, you will always be loved! R.I.P. Mom

    Dear Mr.Tyler Perry: First of all, I am sorry for you loss and your video message is very touchy and the same time it helps me to see myself on my children eyes. I am a mother of three beautiful boys. I don't have money to leave my children and the only thing that I can leave for my boys is love like your mother. I would like to thank you for sharing your thought on video clip. I watch and listened all of them. I reside to US 19 years ago and every single day is a learning moment for me. Especially from you and Oprah I changed a lot and I have so much strength and faith on god. God Bless You!!

    Hey Man, I just want to say that I lost my Grandmother around the same time you lost your mother. I can really relate to where you are coming from. My mother and I are very close as well and I too dream to become a Mogul. All of your videos are Right on Time for me. Be Blessed Brother. God Will Supply Our Every Need!

    Heyy Tyler!, You know, I never thought about me instilling who GOD and JESUS is in my kids.......a "gift" from me. I know it's a gift from GOD but I've always felt it was my JOB to make sure my kids knew the "necessity" of knowing who GOD/JESUS are. When I first decided to believe in GOD/JESUS, I was 12yrs old. I picked up the Bible, read it (to the best of my ability lol) and (while everyone else prayed for success, big houses, nice cars ect..) I prayed to have as much (or more) FAITH than ABRAM. My prayers have been answered and now Im teaching my kids the IMPORTANCE of having GOD/JESUS in their life and I worry that they will deter from it later in life. Im literally worried about that because of the way the world is right now. I know all I can do is pray that it will not happen but after listening to your message, Im starting to believe maybe that's what Im here for, because I keep praying for success for myself (Im trying to write a book)... it's not happing and it makes me wonder what am I here for or doing wrong. Although, I become frustrated about me not finding success in my life, I ALWAYS come back to the thought of my kids BELIEVING and MAKING GOD/JESUS 1st in their life. It's really IMPORTANT to me that my kids UNDERSTAND this and YOU just made me realize maybe it is a "gift" that I'M giving them and maybe that's what Im here for :-))).
