Tyler Perry Shares Faith and Rags-to-Riches Journey with Lakewood Church

*One of Hollywood’s biggest stars struggled before he landed his big break and over the weekend, he shared his inspiring story with a Houston-based congregation.

Movie mogul Tyler Perry shared his rags to riches story at the Lakewood Church Saturday evening.

According to abc13.com, Pastor Joel Osteen talked to Perry about his journey from homeless starving artist to entertainment elite. ABC13’s Melanie Lawson also spoke one on one with Mr. Perry about how he did it.

“I was running from poverty and failure wasn’t an option. I knew there was something higher for me and I had to go with everything I had,” Perry said. “I had to risk everything, I had to put everything on the line.”

Perry shared the valuable advice that helped him throughout his journey.

“Don’t stop. No matter who says what, no matter how many people tell you to stop, don’t stop,” he said.

He also spoke about his faith, and why he chose to give hundreds of thousands of dollars to Lakewood after Hurricane Harvey.
