  1. Angela – thanks for doing this. It’s a message that is SO needed, not just for the kids and youth, but, unfortunately, for adults, too. I just posted the video on my profile page and will pass it on to others. Praying God will greatly use you to get the message across.

  2. Good job, girl! Excellent talk!

    • Thanks Tyler! Can you tell I like to speak? One of my friends says I seem to blossom or come alive when I am on stage. Not in a made up way, but in an authentic me. 😉 I can feel God’s smile on me when I do it.
