As discussed by you at your Los Angeles show, I just wanted to tell you
that I DID turn off my cell phone for a day and the world didn't end. And
I did take off my shoes and stand in some grass and really feel the blades
of grass in-between my toes. Thanks for your perspective, it is so genuine
and heartfelt--something that one does not get much of here in L.A.
Happy Holidays and Best Wishes in the New Year!
Well I had a blast on my first trip to California! . . . Roe was so nice
when I saw him between and after the show. And you were wonderful! It's
just too bad they couldnt get the sound system working properly... but you
handled it like a pro! I can tell you that out in the audience everyone
was raving! They loved the show.. and there was such a mixed group of
people there! Everyone from old PTL people to young punks! I also wanted
to compliment you on how you explained what your motivation was for
reaching out to left out groups of people.. How you said that you were
trying to bring in the world that you came from and take their world and
stretch the arms of love around everyone... .I think that really helps
people who were your fans before to understand what you're doing now. I
think with that one analigy you answered questions that old supporters of
yours were wanting to ask. Good for you Tammy-you're doing what Jesus did!
I just wish there had been a reporter there ! to ask me what I thought of
the show! haha Hope to hear from yall soon!
We loved your show at the Palace on Saturday night. You were funny,
inspirational and showed incredible professional poise in light of the
audio and lighting issues. We gathered personal strength from the strength
and courage you displayed.
We wish you success in your upcoming performances as well as personal
happiness and the best of health.
All the Best to Ro as well.
Please extend our thanks to Joe for inviting us.

Dear Ms. Tammy Faye,
Congratulations on an absolutely marvelous show in Los Angeles! It was
such a thrill to meet you beforehand. My partner and I were the first to
greet you downstairs and you accepted my gift so graciously (a signed
photo of myself from "E.T. The Extra Terrestrial").
I send you this message with prayer that the Lord may return to you all
the compassion you have shared with those that know and love you. For all
the reasons the Lord has given me to rejoice, having your inspiring word
and song has been one of my greatest blessings. You give of yourself
unselfishly, without asking much in return. You listen to people without
judging, always seeing the beauty within.
My partner and I are about to adopt a baby with the loving assistance of a
delightful Christian couple living in Northridge, California. Your love,
your humor, and your inspiration has always offered me encouragement when
I needed it the most. These are qualities we hope to pass on to the new
little person about to be welcomed into our world. Thank you for welcoming
all of us into your world, Tammy.
May His Spirit be at work through you for many years to come!
Dear Ms. Messner:
I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your cabaret show on Saturday
night at the Palace Theater downtown. You were in peak form, and I liked
your sense of humor about the sound problems. Your humor and steadfast
cheerfulness are inspiring. I hope to hear more from you in the future in
i had the privelege of being in the audience this past Saturday for your
one woman show at the Palace in Los Angeles.
I just wanted to tell you that I had such a wonderful evening - and that
you put on such a wonderful show!!!
I haven't been to church in years - as I was brought up Catholic and they
just aren't that accepting of gay people - but it was so nice to see you
and be welcomed by you - and to bring a little spirituality back into my
You are a pillar of strength and such an inspiration!!
Please do more shows!!
Just wanted to let you know
how much fun my friends and I had at your L.A. show-- you had the whole
crowd eating out of your hands!
I attended your One Woman Show last Saturday night in LA with 7 of my
friends (several from NC who now live as I do in LA). I was also at the
"meet and greet". I am originally from Suffolk VA, and mentioned to you
that I watched your childrens show as a child. I later moved to NC to
attend college, and followed you through the years...through the ups and
I wanted to thank you for keeping your faith and spirit and for allowing
us to share in your radience of both. I have for years used your "you
can't go forward in life looking in the rear view mirror" to remind myself
and friends that you have to live in the present and hope for the
future...what has happened has happened...and I know you know about that.
It was a pleasure and a wonderfully uplifting experience to meet you and
hear you sing your spirited songs live. I have had my copy of "We're
Blest" on my turntable for years just to remind me I'm blessed, and
there's "No Shortage". I now have my autographed copy of the album cover
hanging on my wall.
May God continue blessing you.
I had the honor of attending your show in LA this past Saturday. It was a
a wonderful experience. Even technical difficulties couldn't prevent me
from enjoying your truly entertaining & inspiring tales. And all delivered
with a terrific touch of humor.
I walked out of the Palace Theatre on Saturday night feeling quite moved
emotionally. To be honest, I avoid most types of ministry. I was raised
Catholic, but being a gay man I felt compelled to look beyond organized
religion. Although I don't identify as a religious person, I do define
myself as a spiritual person with an open mind. I constantly seek out
other people's stories & experiences to help me define my own spiritual
Your message of love was delivered straight from the heart. You exemplify
how incredible life can be if you embrace & love our differences rather
than fear & hate them. Thank you!!!
I just wanted to tell you
that when I found out you were going to be in LA I caught the first plane
out. I was at a point in my life when I needed some cheering up. I have
been watching you since 1987 when I first tuned you in. I dont know why
God works like he does but it seems everytime I felt I couldnt go on there
you appeared again in my life. I wish I had the power to get you on TV
everyday where you belong!
I got to meet you after the show and that will always be a highlight in my
life. Thank you for being you.
You said in your show that people asked you why you were so supportive of
the gay community and why gay people liked you so much. I have that answer
for you. There isnt a gay person I know who would choose to be different
and to feel different from others. The only thing I can think is GOd made
us that way. We go through life always struggling and being ridiculed,
persecuted etc. We look to role moldels who are strong, over come
adversity, and survive all the while NEVER giving up their faith in God or
themselves. You personify this. When we look at what obsticles you have
overcome it makes us realize that we too can be strong and go on all the
while holding our heads up high.
Well, now Im teary eyed. I also wanted to tell you if you ever need a good
interior designer. I would love to help you out free of charge. I get
great discounts! LOL...
Take care and GOD bless!!
