Imani is my hero because she saved me from commiting suicide two years ago. Because of her I met my beautiful wife and now we have 2 amazing little girls and we love them to death.
Andrew Moreno, Ohio
As a part-time musician, I had told my wife that I would alternate using gig pay to buy musical equipment with contributing to family expenses. There was one piece of equipment I really wanted and I got paid well at a show last night. I realized I had used the last show's pay for equipment, so I steeled myself up and donated to an upcoming family trip instead. Because this was hard, I know I have a lot of work to do to become a good person. But that's what I want to do.

Commitment is to press through till we see it happen.
Bruce Willingham, Warner Robins, Ga
I am commited to raising my four children to always be in awe of the beautiful ways of God. My four young children have gone through a lot in these past 8 years. My former problems, moving from Texas to california and there has been little to no complaining and I thank God that before and during these hard times I have seen that bringing them up in the right way is paying off. We aren't where we want to be, but we are far from where we used to be. Two years clean, with my mind stayed on my Savior, and my heart full of His love, I truly NOW lead by example. Sincerely, Commited Daddy-Son-Friend
