My commencement speech at Messiah is available for viewing

I’ve decided to post my speech from June 28 at the Messiah Baptist Church Scholarship luncheon in Bridgeport on my blog. I know that some people were unable to attend my MESSIAH SPEECH , so I thought I’d make my remarks public.

    WOW what a POWERFUL speech LISA so heart felt, I already knew about your FAITH, the way you Laid your Life Story out was outstanding, The way you spoke of your FAITH and how you talked to the Lord and wrote down your Wish for a man to come true just shows that we put all we do in the hands of the Lord and let go , That can be very hard at times but a TRUE Christian can do it in a heartbeat with the help of the lords so keep following your dream and may god bless you .
