    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:)

    Wow...this really made me sentimental because what you describe as your relationship with your mom....is mine as well. I grew up with a single mom raising two girls. She was a seamstress and sewed until 3 or 4am in order to put us through private school and stay home to keep us safe. The moral and values she taught me through her love of Christ is what has made me into the woman that I am. I am married now for soon to be 19 years and have a daughter which will be 18 years old in September. My husband I have taught her to be an independent, loving, compassionate and confident young woman. Most importantly we have taught her to love Jesus and know that with him she can overcome any struggle and is able to accomplish anything she wants in her life. We have taught her to love and respect herself and to always have a positive attitude about everything. We taught her to see the beauty in what most would see as the most mundane things. We both have a great relationship with and speak freely with her about anything she wants to talk about. I want her to know that we are here for always unconditionally. Thank you for sharing your feelings. Listening to you and knowing what an amazing man you have become only confirms that what I give my daughter as well as what she gives us everyday is priceless. You are a real blessing to the world!!!

    Hi, I was touched by your post 'what are you giving your children'. reminded me so much of my mum (she's 67) she didn't have much but ALL she had she gave us including Jesus, till date she wakes up each night to pray that we keep the faith. i am 35, a mother of 3, my girls are everything to me. They are blessing from the Lord, i work hard to ensure they have the basic necessities,have good education and will never need to beg for bread but must of all ,like my mum i bring them up right in the way of the Lord. By God's grace they will be what God want them to be. Thank you, i love you faith. May God keep you.

    Hi Tyler, your mother maybe gone but she left a legacy to all of us, which is you. You are an inspiration and a reflection of her love to you. We pray to God on this day to strengthen you and keep you going on the path of passion that He has put in your heart. We pray for that love that you have received from your mother to keep on flowing through you so people might know how important it is to teach children in a way that will please God, and in a way that will help them find Jesus Christ the way you did through your mom's prayers. We pray for God to teach you more on how to inspire others. You are loved, and you are blessed. Keep it up!!!

    God bless you Mr.Perry ! I lost my mommy when I was 9 months old. She was only 16. She got pregnant when she was 14 and had me at 15. Im bout to be 14 in Sept. I lost my grandma when I was 5. My daddy has spent 11 of 13 years of my life in jail(not all spent at once). Ive thought about runninv away, killing myself, and hurting myself plenty of times but i just dnt have the heart to do it. I was molested twice. All of yur work helps me with my life. You help me with family problems, self-esteem, and most of all living. You inspire me to keep going on

    Ps.126 When the Lord brought back the captivity of ZION, We were like those who DREAM. Then our mouth was filled w/ LAUGHTER, And our tongue w/ SINGING. Then they said among the nations/Gentiles/heathen, "The Lord has done great things for them." The Lord has done great things for us, And we are GLAD. Bring back our captivity, O Lord, As the streams in the South. Those who sow IN TEARS Shall reap IN JOY. He who continually goes forth/to & fro weeping, Bearing seed/precious seed for sowing, Shall doubtLESS come again with REJOICING/shouts of joy, Bringing his sheaves with him. Is.61:3 To console/appoint those who morn in ZION, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, THE PLANTING OF THE LORD, THAT HE MAY BE glorified. :-)

    And I'll share with you some day about a Father's Love for his daughter. A mother tend to go a lot for her sons like no other & a father tends to leave stuff to his daughter that makes it hard to even compete with. His protection, his love, his guidance, his wisdom, his security & just his very presence is more than enough, let along his words. :-) I'm teary eyed but U been every since your email on today but its all good. They are tears of joy, & strength. For he catches our tears in a vase & they water our harvest. Good night Tyler! #WitnessProtection :)

    Tyler, I just lost my Mama this past 5/18 and I just wanted to thank you for the words of precision you spoke. Jesus became her entire life line and I was honoured that she absorbed His Word as if they were life to her very bones. Your Mama gave you a Gift that keeps on giving and your very existence beyond the books, plays, movies and the like is only the beginning for you. Much continued peace to your heart and mind. Thank you. Oh, as for the Kim K. issue? Thank you for that! Jesus came for those that are sick, not healthy. I cannot wait to see what God has placed within you to come out through her!

    I feel as you do Mr. Perry, my story is a tab bit different, but the exact same concept is there. At the age of three weeks old my mother was gun down, my father immediately after my mother my passed, my father took me to his mother asking if she would help him to raise me, she agreed, sad to say T years later we buried my father, he too was gun down. My mama/grandmother was 54 years my senior and taught me everything up too and icluding what side of the sidewalk to walk on when passing people, I get and understand how it feels to good from talking and learning from someone EVERYDAY, to not hearing that love flow through the phone into your spirit anymore, but you are right a smart person will take that with them for the rest of their lives. You ask what do I give my children, everyday my children after prayer speak a qoute that I specially wrote for them, with it beginning with "I Am A Born Leader," and it ending, "I Am Somebody,"! My daughters and I are going through it right now due to me not pursuing my education, but me late blooming in my educational career is actually a blessing, now don't get wrong I am a true believer in getting educated, however I am an example of what not too do when it comes to handling business in school, when my daughters want something and I tell them with a broken heart, we don't have it, I also remind them that this is the ouycome of not doing what is needed in school in order to get the things that are needed and some of the things you want. My daughters are 13, and one of the things that I tell them is that they have a god giving right too hold everyone including their parents in high expectations, and nothing else is acceptable! Another parenting skill that is above ALL is LOVE, love is the foundation first food, the first water, the first sleep, the first bathe,and the first rearing. Thanks for allowing my to share my story. Yours Truly Syreeta Jones
