Tyler, I knew very little about you until yesterday when I saw this video of you on a radio talk show's blog. As I watched it I was moved to do a bit of research on your work. Yes, I knew about your Madea movies but never saw one though I didn't know you wrote plays and books and had your own studio. Then I watched your interview with Oprah on YouTube followed by her show featuring 200 men in audience who courageously stood together and voiced their experiences as abused children. All I can say is - wow. Your story was riveting and heartbreaking but mostly - inspiring. For years I have floundered not really "going for the dream" and then spent many, many years mixed up in a very over-the-top religious organization that I recently stepped out of. As a result, I don't care much for religion - too much damage, too much pain there - however, I also know it is a double-edged sword and that there are many trustworthy religious people who have NOT used it to manipulate or coerce others. As for getting back to following my dreams - what you said that impressed me most was something I already knew but it took hearing it articulated by YOU to really sink into my psyche. ""Focus on that ONE thing...don't stop. Narrow your focus to one idea and make it work, that will give birth to others." See - I've been one of those people who becomes ADD when it comes to getting things done - lol. I also carried a load of guilt and shame from religion that told me that to express fully my dream was not a dream annointed by God. I love art and writing and so I had it in my head that to pursue both would distract me from God and my church. So I worked as a content manager for several years providing daily blog articles and such but there was so much more I wanted to talk about. Now I know better ;) Thank you for letting your light shine before all of us - it gave me a lift to desire to do the same for myself and for others. Warm Regards, S. Belmonte -- Redlands, CA
:-) #MyTemptation LoL... LoL... !!!!! 1! Uno! LoL Faith & Love... #TP :P
Wow how that just spoke to my heart, so much that a tear decided to fall down my eye. I needed that push, to see someone who is hungry and also a living witness. My mother always called me dramatic in every way and now I see that in my 5 year old daughter. I don't belong working behind a desk, living paycheck to paycheck, starving myself just to pay bills. I deserve to be of recognition, to be of importance. I may not be 5'8, and have hair all the way down my back, but I'm a person a real person. 5'2, 160 pounds, big eyes, stocky built, big smile, and a personality for days. I'm someone...I'm Gods daughter and I need to start believing and trusting in him instead of turning away from him. My God Thank you

Dear Tyler the conformation you brought about never given up on your dream brought tear to my eye because every time I get frustrated with my job I think about my dream and how i know once i get people to believe in the vision I that is when I will know every thing else will take care of itself. the goal I have is to find investor who will see the vision I see I know that from this dream will come a movie a clothing line and a charity that will go world wide because that is what I feel deep within me.
Hello Tyler, I have ALL your movies & plays. You are such a motivator, GOD has TRULY BLESSED YOU. My mother always told me, I have tunnel vision, because when I am trying to accomplish something, I only focus on that one thing. GOD has BLESSED me and my husband with 2 daycare centers, and my husband is one of the BEST saxophonist, and I'm believing in GOD, and trusting in GOD for his will to be done concerning my husband's music career. THANK YOU for all you have deposited into people.
You are myself, Tyler! :-) ...LoL... :-) As u see my 1 ideal isn't a thing (well marriage), its a human/person. What now, Tyler? It's bigger than me! :-) Do u still believe that we should water only one seed; & make it your priority? What u think I'm doing? Better yet, what u think I been doing? :-) I know, it looks crazy! Oh well! :P LoL... That's what that is. And please believe I'm focus. Like, at attention! LOL!!! OMG!! #ChristStrengthenUs! The thing with me is: I don't want/nor choose for 'stuff & things' to get my attention! I understand that the love & attention from a person is much more valuable than any thing. Can things talk? Can things hug or touch or kiss or console or caress u? A person! A person can listen, give u advice, hold u, look you in your eyes; even w*** your tears, if/when need be. A person can encourage, hear, pray, laugh, talk, have fun, grow with u, etc...you name it & there's a person who can! :-) FYI! Song: Take me to the king! :-) What king? Mines, that the king I'm talking about. Yes! Cause I come out for NOBODY; But him! Only him! :-) Hidden Treasure! :-) Can ya dig! :-) ...LoL... :-)
SPIRIT, SOUL, & BODY! "1!" TYLER PERRY "1!" :-) Do you know what 1 is? What is it?
