Abe Cruz: ‘Forever Faith’ – In 14 Ways – http://MercyfulGrace.Blog

Abraham J. Cruz what a pleasure to meet with you in #In14Ways at last. Thank you for giving us this opportunity to get closer to know more about you. We thought this interview would never happen. You are such a busy successful inspiring entrepreneur. If you are not dripped in chocolate (Jay Leno) for your adoring fans, you are dripped in words of inspiration all over your (Forever Faith) brands ..’ So lets get started already in In14Ways ..’

1. How are you today?

I’m Blessed and Great every day, because there is no other option when you see light, and breath air. Amen!!

2. What was life like on millionaire matchmaker when we first saw you

Life at that point was unreal, and unbelievable, because about a year before that I was in prison, and I was told that. I wasn’t going to be able to accomplish anything, or be productive in life. I was in prison being told when to eat and when to sleep.

3. Has Patti changed your life for good with the one in the aftermath

Patti did a great job on working with me, but unfortunately it didn’t work out with the girl I met on the show. She was beautiful, and I hope she is doing well.

4. How has prison affected your focus

It was the biggest blessing of my life, because nothing I have today (physically, spiritually, financially, or mentally) would have come about without hitting rock bottom and going to prison. I was forced to lay on my back, so all I could see was up.

5. Advise for young entrepreneurs

To truly follow their heart and soul, and ask God for direction. Truly believe in God first, and believe in yourself second, and with that combination you can’t lose.

6. Your advise for anyone living a life of crime

Yikes..!! Hurry up and figure out your exit strategy, because I don’t think anybody decides they want to go into a life of crime. Speaking for myself I grew up poor, and wanted a better life for me and my family. And ultimately I know I made the wrong decision, but it was the quickest financial solution to all my financial problems. I would never advise to do it. Remember this… Fast Cash Fast Crash..!!

7. How has faith captured your imagination.

I fully believe in myself. I feel that I will be one of the most powerful men in the world some day, for many different reasons.

8. How have you managed to resolve diversity in America being Latino

I understand at time we are dealing with some racial tension, but I personally do not allow racism, or race, to influence or impact my daily life. I don’t have an ounce of hate in my body, except for idiots. And idiots come in all shapes, sizes, and races. Life overall is about loving, accepting, and encouraging each other.

(MercyfulGrace: Laugh – Laugh – Laugh – Love it !!! Genius. Thank you ..’)

9. Do you believe in after life

Wooh… That’s a good question. The majority of people out there would want me to give a definitive answer, because that’s what is expected in society. But me speaking truthfully, never even gave it a thought. My focus is becoming a better person every day, and doing everything I can to help this world in every way I can. Yes. I believe.

10. Where is home for you

I travel so much. Not sure where home really is…

11. Your ideal get away.

Heading to the beach. Quiet beach. Massage and relaxation all day long… and having sushi. I’m more on the simple side.

12. Who inspires you most

Faith is number one. There’s been a couple of people that triggered some inspiration as well while I was in prison. P.Diddy (Sean John), Jay Cutler (4 time Mr. Olympia), and Jim Rohn (Philosopher).

13. Your greatest legacy will be

That I cared about people. That I lifted up people when they were down.

14. Say a prayer for humanity.

Dear Father God, I come to you for the good and the bad, and today’s specific prayer is to bring humanity together. We are going through some tough, confusing times. Us humans don’t have the answers. So I turn to you, and ask You for direction. I ask you Father God to guide us, because we will only see improvement if we put all our faith in You Father God. I pray this to you Father God in the name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen

End of Interview

Thank you so much for the interview. You are truly a star and a consummate professional. I’ve picked up a few notes here personally. Goes to show. The best things in life are free and what will be will be. Patience is a real glorious virtue. Furthermore, like to add and end on this note: may God bless you real good. Amen !!!

MercyfulGrace Diaries with Assault – ‘Domestic Violence’.


It was friday morning, just after midnight – 8th of August 2014. I was strolling out the door to get something light, to eat, for a change and take a short walk around the neighbourhood. Then I heard her screaming ..’ What I witnessed next, was not pleasant. Scary for me too – because, I was not sure – If I’d be the next.

Arèmúorin Foto's - 04 copy

The memories faded quickly into my childhood watching my father do this to my mother, in various degrees, as far back as when I was only 2, while she used to chase him out of the house with a roling pin.


I literally saw a man, choke hold his girlfriend and knock her to the ground on my street. She confronted him for lying to her, being in bed, only to find him in a club with another girl. Then he assaulted her. Girls, why do you put up with this kind of behaviour and men?

She was hysterical, telling him to leave her alone but he kept intimidating her, the more – saying, he’ll hit her if he wanted. She was screaming. No neighbours helped – until I came out and called the police.

MG Log editedShe is in bits now – in the police car! I waited a while to see how it was going to develop. Luckily, someone like me was nearby to assist the poor girl. I totally forgot I had my mini camera on me – to capture the whole saga. These were white folks by the way.


It was interesting ironically;  her head was telling her – “He is a fool, and liar and a cheat – leave him”, but her heart was saying, “love me more”. Even thou, she was in terror, terrified by his actions – she was desperately clinging unto his twisted fists, while he was still trying to kiss her – to confuse her, even more. I hope this serves as a cautionary tale -to someone out there.

Don’t put up with it. Put him out …’ I don’t care how good it is or how good he is. Nobody should be subjected to a life of violence and deprecation – for the sake of being with someone.

The  onus is on fathers to love their daughters unconditionally. If a girl have men at home; in her brothers, uncles and father(s) – who treat her like a princess, when she goes out to find a man (court) – she will settle for nothing less than a man who will treat her like a Queen! Why wouldn’t she? When she can go back home to being treated as a princess ..’

The more he wanted her, the more he abused her and violated her, and her trust – in other men; too. Not good. “The mire of mediocre is no way for a King and Queen like You and I”. Haters are like glue stuck to water in vain ..’ Wanting, you – to feel the strain!

Anthony Everest - MercyfulGrace.com

This is what war does to you ..’ – Anthony Everest

This is what war does to you. Pain and lingering sufferings. Generational abuse, neglect and inconsolable disastrous unmitigated catastrophes, destroying lives rebelliously with no cause for remorse at all cost. Make it go away will you. Imagine! But love won’t wait ..’




I’ve been told to make this into a song, but I’m too sad to sing those words. So I, chose to elope with my heart, taking along my soul, and allay them down in thoughts, hopefully they might choke someone, somewhere with nots – to realise this is a foolish act, on the human race.


A slap that silences nothing but requited Love* :: even when you look at the ugly stains, kindly; at a slower pace. Shame on us – to let this be our reality! :: We can do better …’ than turning our own flesh and blood into a blood bath of warmongers, for greed, for plead, please read! Mercy! Do something!
