    As I was watching Newtown Victims Mother God spoke to me, so clearly it was if he was in the room with me. He said “little Children shall lead the way back to me. These little one’s are fine. There here with me right now, just as U are there right now. The difference is they are surrounded by total love where U are is the place where U have FREE WILL to chose. Where they are is where all there is , is LOVE !!! Yes, LITTLE CHILDREN SHALL LEAD THE WAY !!! Love the one’s your with just as U are doing. I have the one’s who left in the palm of my LOVING hand & they are just fine ❤💜💚💙💗😍

  • Tracy says:

    I couldn’t stop crying. thank you for sharing this powerful video. Last year when I saw photo’s of all the little innocent faces, Emilie’s stood out for me, as I have 3 blond granddaughter’s that are the same ages as Emilie and her sisters. I remember watching someone talk about how after Columbine, that everyone knew the shooters name, but no one remembered the victims names. I decided then and there that I would not remember Evil, I chose instead to remember the children’s names and the brave teachers . I pray for Emilie and her family every day, and I stand firm in not remembering Evil’s name. God Bless you and your family.

  • Sue says:

    Your video was so brave. I felt the power of God as I watched. May Gods grace continue to lift you and your family up.
    Blessings to you and yours. Sue

    Beautiful Emilie and beautiful family! God Bless you and thank you for your inspiring spirit and faith.

  • Ken says:

    I don’t have words to describe my emotions after watching this story about your beautiful little girl and family. You and your family have to be very strong to be able to do this and I think your story about Emilie and your experience can show people a lot of amazing and positive things in everyday life, after something so Evil. May God bless you, your family and your little Angel and may you know she is watching over you, your husband, and your little girls every day. Thanks so much for sharing this inspiring story. You all will be in our thoughts and prayers.
