    What will I leave behind for my daughter? What am I giving her even now? My love for Jesus Christ. My love for the word of God. My belief in the one scripture that carried us through abuse, poverty, and homelessness (Philippians 4:13). My baby said to me at a time when I got really discouraged with publishers and business leads to get us out of a bad situation...Momma, I don't care if you don't sell not one book. I just want to see your face on the cover of our book and say my momma did that for me. I remember she caught me crying and she said, you always tell me to make the devil out of liar and you need to do that and publish this book anyway. I don't care if we have to live in a cardboard box and I never get one Christmas gift. I wanna see your face in the grocery stores, book stores, and then she put this big emphasis on "ESPECIALLY WALMART". Of course, I could only laugh...cause that's where I work. We don't have much and everything I have to give her is inside of me. I put it on paper so it can become a physical treasure for her. And still she says I won't read one story until it's published, Momma. No matter how bad things are, she still believes in me. That's why whatever I have to give I offer unto God first, so that He will use me as He sees fit. It doesn't have to make sense to the rest of the world as long as He gets it and I get it. As long as it draws whomever He needs for whatever His purpose should be for their life...I am pleased. That's what I pray my daughter and all the children I have stood in the gap for will cherish concerning me. Am I perfect? No. But I believe in the hope of perfection in Christ. My hope and my prayer is that someday we will all get there with the understanding that any good that we do in this world that can be instilled within our children, is already a work of perfection and it is a gift to be treasured...eternally. Your message touched me. You don't say much, but you always say alot. Thanks. God bless and I think you know Jesus loves you. I love you, too for being that beacon of light I can come to when I need inspiration.

      I have recently published an e-book on line and my 5 year old son encouraged me as well. I have always written but I wanted to make it real after succumbing to crippling pain from scoliosis. I worked as an entertainer in adult entertainment establishment and hated my life. I know God and actually asked him to allow me to become a "professsional" dancer when I was a child. I didn't know what I was asking for but God gave it to me. Now the profession is a joke and I left it alone. I home schooled my son until Jan of this year, teaching him sign language, adding, reading and writing. I instill in Him that God is our provider and he will sustain us. He blesses God for everything he has and prays for me. I love your comment and hope that you become a huge success. I published my book through book tango and you could do it for free!

    My husband and I are trying to instill in our children the value of family. We are ALL the 5 of us have. Neither my family or my husbands family(some of them) treat us as though we are family. Our families treat us and our children as though we do not exist and our children are starting to realize that. We tell our children that, unfortunetly, we are all we have. EACH OTHER. We MAY NOT have much money, but we have our strong family hold. we let them know that even though we struggle from month to month, we always get through the mont with GOD'S grace and mercy. We tell each other that we love each other on a daily basis. BESIDES OUR LORD & SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST, WE ARE ALL WE HAVE!!!!

    Thanks for the encouragement. I need it today. My son is 3, and sometimes I don't know how to be a good mom. I hope more than anything to share with him the love of Jesus.

    Your Mother, gave you a wonderful gift, "Life" was number one. Number two, "Jesus". Jesus shows us the way, to salvation Mr. Tyler. Jesus has shown us the way, to seeing our dead loved ones again, by his Redemption From Condemnation of Death. Psalm 68:20 states: “Our God is a God of salvation, and to God, the Lord, belong deliverances from death.” Hebrews 2:10 "God, for whom and through whom everything was made, chose to bring many children into glory. And it was only right that he should make Jesus, through his suffering, a perfect leader, fit to bring them into their salvation" and through him the abolishing of death is assured, Mr Tyler. According to that scripture, it says to Bring "MANY" Children into His Glory. You were one of them Mr. Tyler. I was too. We look forward to, No more enemy Death. Your Mother gave you breath, and gave you Jesus to rely on to demolish what ills you, what ills us. She gave you Jesus. 2 Timothy 1:10 refers to Jesus, "And now he has made all of this plain to us by the appearing of Christ Jesus, our Savior. He broke the power of death and illuminated the way to life and immortality through the Good News .” If you truly believe, "You will see your Mom, possibly, again." Read Mr. Tyler Col 1:23 to finalize a peaceful thought.

    Dear Mr. Perry: What a beautiful tribute to your mother. I too lost my mother, she went home in 2007 and there is not a day that goes by that I don't think of her. She was the voice of love, instruction, teacher of God's word and laughter even thru the trials. I could not have prayed to the Almighty God for a better mother. She sacraficed much for her children, me included. Had I been more obedient to her will instead of mine, I would have been so much better off. Although I did not disrespect my mother, I had to do things "my" way, which usually turned out to be the wrong way. I did get a chance to ask her to forgive me for not being more obedient before she passed on home. Praise God for that mercy! Your mother would be so proud of the man you turned out to be. Kind; caring; thoughtful and generous to those in need. Well done! May the AlmightyGod continue to bless you in Jesus Name!!

    Hello Tyler, I want to tell you that your words and caring attitude inspire me to keep going forward to persue my dreams, and I know god has led me to making the right choices in hard situations. My 28 year old sister died in a car accident on November 8, 2009 she left behind 3 children. I am raising my neice 9 and my nephew 14 as well as my own 2 children 14 year old boy and 5 year old girl. My other nephew was adopted by my sisters long time friend, bless her heart. I'm going through a divorce because my husband was not supportive of me taking in my sisters children and said it's him or my sisters kids. I know in my heart I choose the right way even though it's been a struggel. I'm teaching my kids very important tools and lessons about turning adversity into strenghth and they can overcome anything. My goal is to start a business that my kids can help be a part of, and also buy us a more suitable home in the future. I work full time taking care of an elderly patient which I enjoy and will continue to do while I find a way to start and grow my business. I love reading your inspirational messages and watching all of your movies. Thank you! your a blessing on this earth:)
