  1. Hi Jamie,

    i didn't know that you had these struggles. However, i think you are adorable (this from a 53 yr old Mom of girls) & appreciate your tightness with Jesus. I was always impressed by this-which comes thru in your music videos & songs. You have a beauty which comes thru your heart & jumps right out of your face. i thank God for you & your testimony & your music which reaches out to a younger generation who deal with so many issues.. I will continue to pray for you & now more specifically.

    God's abundant blessings,
    Keep pressing on,

    Janee <3

  3. Words cannot express how thankful I am for your life. Your message and who God has made you to be reaches to many kids. My daughter is one of them. She is a strong and tenacious girl. She does not have physical struggles but she struggles with things that others do not see. She adores you, admires you, and is always singing your songs. You have been someone that she can learn from through your music. Thank you and thank God for giving us all Jamie Grace. I hope messages like these do not leave you feeling the pressure to meet any expectations you think we have of you. Just be you.

  12. Jamie Grace, I just have been listening to your music the last few weeks on K-LOVE in Nevada and heard part of your interview with them. Just listening now to your story here on Air1 gives me more respect of why God has placed you here to Bless others. You are learning so much at such a young age. You are so wise beyond your years. I'm a fighter of arthritis, mild scoliosis, both in my back, digestive issues, and major heart health problems. I was born with a whole in my heart, first surgery age 4, second surgery age 34, and now facing another surgery at the age of 46. Oh Yeah, did I mention I'm 6 1/2 years sober from drinking and drugs. Life has a funny way of teaching us, but one thing I can really connect with you on is my God and my commitment to serving him first and blessing those around us with our testimonies that he has confidentially helped us and is still helping us to be the people we are growing to be. His children in Faith. God Bless my friend. Hope life and your new music blesses you as well.

  13. Dear Jamie,
    I first saw you at WinterJam in Cincinnati, Oh. last February & immediately thought to myself, "Who IS that??" You're so beautiful, charismatic, inspiring & an ambassador for young women everywhere. I love your music, & overall artistry...God is certainly working wonders through & with you! I've seen you live twice, & will see you for the 3rd time next month in Indianapolis...I hope to meet you in person this time. Your "TEENSWTS" channel really opened my eyes to what all Tourette Syndrome is all about, & I admire how strong you have been through everything & how you're not letting it affect your plan in life...much love to you...#AFighter, Joshua Scales
