Fennell-Blakes shares, “GOD said, ‘Tell his story.’ This is a true story of a young man named Tony Blakes, Jr. we call him TJ. A story of a mother’s fight for her son. It tells of how satan tried to take his life from the womb, as an infant, and then as a toddler, but God saved him each time. The story of the struggles and fights for his life, well-being, and education. The times mother had to tune out those closest to her and listen only to God. Sometimes feeling she was walking alone, but finding the strength to stand and not waiver, no matter what anybody said or thought. The story of a family’s test and having to learn to stand on faith and God’s Word remembering the scriptures ‘the battle is not yours, but God’s.’ How they went through the test and came out with an amazing Testimony, ‘TJ’s Story’”
