Willie Aames Quotes

God continues to work miracles in my life.
God gives me the children's ministry heart and patience. This is what He wants. It's awesome. I don't know where He's gonna take it-but God is building this thing.
It's easy to be led astray when you're so broken. People take advantage of you.
I get scared to death when I see people who say they've found Jesus Christ, and they're out there, and I wonder, who's teaching them? Who's mentoring them?
They did interviews with my wife and daughter-they were genuinely in fear of me having a heart attack, working 20 hours a day, eating fast food.
I remember thinking, That's what I need - and that hope was in Jesus Christ.
I tell kids that people will let them down and people will hurt them. But Jesus Christ will never let them down and never hurt them.
I want kids to understand that strength doesn't come from what goes on around you. It comes from inside you, and that comes from Jesus Christ.
I spent six years in Bible study because I needed to get grounded. People really need to spend time in the Bible getting to know the God they claim to love.
