Thank you Mr. President, it is good to hear you lead by example in your Christian Faith. May the Lord bless you more and more.

I am so proud to have a president and first lady that first of all looks like me. Second, I feel blessed to read and see you two give us messages of hope, love, peace and adoration. Thirdly, I commend your strenght because I know it comes from God and HE has prepared you two for such a time as this; to lead His people into a new democracy with a style that only belongs to The Obama's. Lastly, I have prayed and asked God to protect your family, to give you more super-natural wisdom, a working congress that openly supports what this administration is working so hard to defend and birth.

God Bless Your Family is my sincere prayer!

Marilyn in Oklahoma City.
