"I have never met a woman with such compassion! T-Resa displays the love of Christ everywhere she goes, just her smile release and beauty lights up the room. I'm thankful she is using her gift for the kingdom and when I hear her voice, I hear the love and compassion she has for our Lord and Savior. She seems shy, but bold once the Holy Spirit has come upon her and I give God the Glory every time I hear my sister sing unto him. Lets support this woman of God! How do we do that? By buying her music so she can continue to spread the gospel around the world! I celebrate you T-Resa!
