  • I said everybody, I invited everybody over.
  • 00:00:01.160 --> 00:00:03.060
  • - Now shouldn't that be a family matter?
  • 00:00:03.060 --> 00:00:05.170
  • - Because some of you may try to keep it within this part,
  • 00:00:05.170 --> 00:00:09.060
  • well I need to take it out you know a little wider
  • 00:00:09.060 --> 00:00:12.230
  • because you don't know who have your answer.
  • 00:00:12.230 --> 00:00:15.020
  • - But were you even thinking along that line?
  • 00:00:15.020 --> 00:00:17.090
  • - No, but I'm thinking this is my family.
  • 00:00:17.090 --> 00:00:19.110
  • We know how to pray and come together,
  • 00:00:19.110 --> 00:00:20.230
  • this is what we do.
  • 00:00:20.230 --> 00:00:22.040
  • - And that's why you would involve your family
  • 00:00:22.040 --> 00:00:24.260
  • in some of these issues.
  • 00:00:24.260 --> 00:00:26.240
  • We're not just gossiping.
  • 00:00:26.240 --> 00:00:28.230
  • We're not just spreading information.
  • 00:00:28.230 --> 00:00:31.030
  • We need those who can get with us in faith,
  • 00:00:31.030 --> 00:00:34.140
  • because one can chase a thousand,
  • 00:00:34.140 --> 00:00:37.000
  • and two can put 10.000.
  • 00:00:37.000 --> 00:00:39.060
  • So why not, why not your family?
  • 00:00:39.130 --> 00:00:41.240
  • Who do you think will cover you the most?
  • 00:00:41.240 --> 00:00:44.050
  • Now that's not all y'alls family.
  • 00:00:44.050 --> 00:00:46.050
  • - Yeah that's not everybody's family.
  • 00:00:46.050 --> 00:00:47.270
  • - Okay.
  • 00:01:22.290 --> 00:01:24.050
  • - God had to tell me that I was destroying something
  • 00:01:24.050 --> 00:01:26.090
  • in Brelyn that she would need later in life.
  • 00:01:26.090 --> 00:01:29.220
  • Because my position at that time was just to break her.
  • 00:01:29.220 --> 00:01:33.200
  • Was to show her that I'm in charge, I'm the mother,
  • 00:01:34.000 --> 00:01:37.220
  • I'm the grown up.
  • 00:01:37.220 --> 00:01:38.250
  • You gonna do exactly what I say do,
  • 00:01:38.250 --> 00:01:40.260
  • even if it wasn't even all that important
  • 00:01:40.260 --> 00:01:43.170
  • to be done at that particular time.
  • 00:01:43.170 --> 00:01:45.090
  • Or not that necessary.
  • 00:01:45.090 --> 00:01:46.270
  • And so God had to tell me that.
  • 00:01:46.270 --> 00:01:48.180
  • And now, when I look back at it
  • 00:01:48.180 --> 00:01:50.290
  • and I see where she is to now.
  • 00:01:50.290 --> 00:01:53.080
  • - Today.
  • 00:01:53.080 --> 00:01:54.190
  • - See where she is today, and I can understand
  • 00:01:54.190 --> 00:01:57.100
  • the you know, what she need to carry out the assignment
  • 00:01:57.230 --> 00:02:01.140
  • that's on her life.
  • 00:02:01.140 --> 00:02:02.220
  • I mean the courage, - [Pastor] Okay.
  • 00:02:02.220 --> 00:02:04.040
  • - [DeeDee and Pastor] the boldness,
  • 00:02:04.040 --> 00:02:06.100
  • - [DeeDee] the fortitude, she just wouldn't back down.
  • 00:02:06.100 --> 00:02:09.110
  • She's not afraid of anything.
  • 00:02:09.110 --> 00:02:11.130
  • She ain't shy.
  • 00:02:12.150 --> 00:02:13.100
  • She's just not--
  • 00:02:13.100 --> 00:02:14.100
  • - And so you saw that now--
  • 00:02:14.100 --> 00:02:15.160
  • - I see it now, or I saw it much later,
  • 00:02:15.160 --> 00:02:18.090
  • but I didn't see it then.
  • 00:02:18.090 --> 00:02:20.080
  • And so now I teach people--
  • 00:02:20.080 --> 00:02:21.200
  • - And you were trying to whoop
  • 00:02:21.200 --> 00:02:23.040
  • some of the traits and characteristics
  • 00:02:23.100 --> 00:02:25.250
  • that got. - [DeeDee] Out of her that--
  • 00:02:25.250 --> 00:02:26.290
  • - [Pastor] Instead of nurturing
  • 00:02:26.290 --> 00:02:28.130
  • and identifying, - [DeeDee] Exactly.
  • 00:02:28.130 --> 00:02:30.020
  • - [Pastor] what God has placed in her.
  • 00:02:30.100 --> 00:02:31.160
  • - Exactly.
  • 00:02:31.160 --> 00:02:32.140
  • - That's a good lesson there.
  • 00:02:32.140 --> 00:02:33.120
  • - And so now I teach people
  • 00:02:33.120 --> 00:02:34.280
  • how to recognize. - [Pastor] Because some kids
  • 00:02:34.280 --> 00:02:36.050
  • - [Pastor] are class clowns at school.
  • 00:02:36.050 --> 00:02:38.070
  • - Mmm hmm, mmm hmm.
  • 00:02:38.070 --> 00:02:40.050
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:02:40.050 --> 00:02:42.150
  • - And they're going about it the wrong way.
  • 00:02:43.050 --> 00:02:45.170
  • Who knows, they may be the next Kevin Hart.
  • 00:02:45.170 --> 00:02:47.210
  • - Yeah, or real talkative.
  • 00:02:47.210 --> 00:02:49.080
  • You know just talk a lot and always wanna debate.
  • 00:02:49.080 --> 00:02:52.000
  • And you try to beat that out of em
  • 00:02:52.000 --> 00:02:53.160
  • and tell them shut up all the time.
  • 00:02:53.160 --> 00:02:54.290
  • You don't know, they may be an attorney or something.
  • 00:02:54.290 --> 00:02:57.000
  • You know, or a preacher.
  • 00:02:57.000 --> 00:02:59.130
  • You know or pastor.
  • 00:02:59.240 --> 00:03:01.060
  • So you have to identify what's on their life.
  • 00:03:01.060 --> 00:03:03.270
  • - Okay, I don't want to get into
  • 00:03:04.160 --> 00:03:05.240
  • parenting too much. - [DeeDee] Exactly.
  • 00:03:05.240 --> 00:03:07.050
  • - [Pastor] But here's what I was thinking.
  • 00:03:07.050 --> 00:03:09.060
  • It's quite intriguing to me, to be able to have
  • 00:03:10.010 --> 00:03:14.130
  • an opportunity to speak to mentors of mine.
  • 00:03:14.130 --> 00:03:18.020
  • Like we were just so privileged not too long ago
  • 00:03:18.020 --> 00:03:21.250
  • to sit down with T.D and Sarah Jakes.
  • 00:03:21.250 --> 00:03:24.210
  • Serita Jakes.
  • 00:03:25.000 --> 00:03:26.130
  • And you know, to sit down and just hear from
  • 00:03:26.170 --> 00:03:30.210
  • a perspective where no one's preaching or teaching
  • 00:03:30.210 --> 00:03:34.030
  • or the set up is not as such.
  • 00:03:34.030 --> 00:03:36.280
  • As far as the pulpit parishioner scene.
  • 00:03:37.100 --> 00:03:40.250
  • But just sitting down and listening,
  • 00:03:41.070 --> 00:03:44.230
  • imposing questions.
  • 00:03:44.230 --> 00:03:46.110
  • We have the same opportunity with Dr. Price,
  • 00:03:46.110 --> 00:03:49.280
  • and Creflo and Taffi, and just recently
  • 00:03:49.280 --> 00:03:53.260
  • I.V. and Bridget Hilliard.
  • 00:03:53.260 --> 00:03:55.230
  • I think more is caught than taught.
  • 00:03:56.220 --> 00:04:00.170
  • And sometimes you don't need to be preached to.
  • 00:04:00.170 --> 00:04:04.160
  • You need to just have an exchange.
  • 00:04:04.280 --> 00:04:06.290
  • Like, let's make this a living room discussion.
  • 00:04:06.290 --> 00:04:10.250
  • Between you and I, your family and my family.
  • 00:04:11.030 --> 00:04:14.040
  • And let's engage, it should be a more like
  • 00:04:14.170 --> 00:04:17.170
  • a participatory kind of setting.
  • 00:04:17.170 --> 00:04:20.020
  • Where you're engaged.
  • 00:04:20.060 --> 00:04:21.220
  • Ask us anything.
  • 00:04:21.220 --> 00:04:23.100
  • Because if you had us one on one,
  • 00:04:23.100 --> 00:04:26.050
  • what are some of the things that you would be curious about
  • 00:04:26.050 --> 00:04:29.190
  • and want to know how we went about.
  • 00:04:29.190 --> 00:04:32.130
  • Like when in our marriage we decided
  • 00:04:32.130 --> 00:04:35.180
  • we were gonna have one viewing station.
  • 00:04:35.180 --> 00:04:38.100
  • They were not gonna have televisions in their rooms.
  • 00:04:38.130 --> 00:04:41.170
  • Maybe for some of the young parents,
  • 00:04:41.170 --> 00:04:43.230
  • you've already have a set up
  • 00:04:44.020 --> 00:04:46.000
  • where everyone has a television.
  • 00:04:46.000 --> 00:04:47.290
  • Well, I don't think that's the best way
  • 00:04:47.290 --> 00:04:50.110
  • to raise or to rear a child in that
  • 00:04:50.190 --> 00:04:54.020
  • central viewing station happening to be
  • 00:04:54.020 --> 00:04:56.270
  • very profitable to us.
  • 00:04:56.270 --> 00:04:58.130
  • So we got a bunch of close--
  • 00:04:58.130 --> 00:05:00.120
  • - I do but I didn't finish my point.
  • 00:05:00.120 --> 00:05:02.270
  • Because when I started talking about Brelyn
  • 00:05:02.270 --> 00:05:05.060
  • and I was telling you all about how I just
  • 00:05:05.060 --> 00:05:07.080
  • used to lose it all the time.
  • 00:05:07.080 --> 00:05:09.070
  • Well I knew, I'm thinking about my husband.
  • 00:05:09.070 --> 00:05:11.230
  • I'm saying okay, so his great grandfather pastor,
  • 00:05:11.230 --> 00:05:15.050
  • his grandfather pastor, his father pastor, he a pastor.
  • 00:05:15.050 --> 00:05:18.160
  • I knew it was no doubt that somebody in my family
  • 00:05:18.160 --> 00:05:20.240
  • was gonna be standing up here preaching one day.
  • 00:05:20.240 --> 00:05:23.060
  • So I had to begin to create memories.
  • 00:05:23.060 --> 00:05:25.280
  • Somebody, I didn't say you Josh.
  • 00:05:26.240 --> 00:05:28.220
  • You know, so I knew.
  • 00:05:29.270 --> 00:05:31.140
  • So I knew that I had to start creating some good things
  • 00:05:35.290 --> 00:05:40.040
  • that I wanted them to say about me.
  • 00:05:40.040 --> 00:05:42.050
  • I knew one of them have all the crazy--
  • 00:05:42.070 --> 00:05:44.130
  • - Oh that was your motive for stop being crazy?
  • 00:05:44.130 --> 00:05:45.290
  • - Oh definitely, oh yes.
  • 00:05:45.290 --> 00:05:48.070
  • I said, "This ain't good.
  • 00:05:48.070 --> 00:05:49.200
  • "I know they gonna stand up in front of people one day
  • 00:05:49.200 --> 00:05:51.290
  • "and tell all the crazy stuff.
  • 00:05:51.290 --> 00:05:53.120
  • "I want them to have some good stuff to say."
  • 00:05:53.120 --> 00:05:55.130
  • And so I used to ask them, they'll tell ya.
  • 00:05:55.130 --> 00:05:58.100
  • I used to say "Okay, now when you preach
  • 00:05:58.100 --> 00:06:00.050
  • "what are you gonna say?"
  • 00:06:00.050 --> 00:06:01.190
  • They were little, and I would ask them.
  • 00:06:02.060 --> 00:06:03.270
  • I wanted to know some of the good stuff.
  • 00:06:03.270 --> 00:06:05.280
  • Cause I didn't wanna know just the crazy stuff.
  • 00:06:06.180 --> 00:06:08.070
  • So whatever it takes. - [Pastor] Okay.
  • 00:06:08.070 --> 00:06:09.150
  • - [Pastor] Okay, so get it started.
  • 00:06:09.150 --> 00:06:11.230
  • - Okay good.
  • 00:06:11.230 --> 00:06:12.200
  • So we have a few questions.
  • 00:06:12.200 --> 00:06:15.150
  • - That we're gonna ask them?
  • 00:06:17.200 --> 00:06:18.220
  • - That we're gonna ask them
  • 00:06:18.220 --> 00:06:19.280
  • and we gonna allow them to participate.
  • 00:06:19.280 --> 00:06:22.040
  • And either of you can just jump in.
  • 00:06:22.120 --> 00:06:25.250
  • Britney probably a little bit more acquainted
  • 00:06:25.250 --> 00:06:28.040
  • with these a lot of these things I guess.
  • 00:06:28.040 --> 00:06:30.100
  • But Josh knows something, Keisha as well.
  • 00:06:30.100 --> 00:06:33.030
  • It says, "Do you tell your family
  • 00:06:33.030 --> 00:06:36.140
  • "about issues in your marriage?"
  • 00:06:36.190 --> 00:06:39.020
  • Now we are the family.
  • 00:06:39.280 --> 00:06:41.230
  • So not just everybody in general.
  • 00:06:41.230 --> 00:06:45.080
  • But do you tell, you know, because some of you
  • 00:06:45.080 --> 00:06:48.250
  • may have family members that you're very close to
  • 00:06:48.250 --> 00:06:53.220
  • and you share a lot of things with and you wanna know that.
  • 00:06:53.220 --> 00:06:56.120
  • And your husband or your wife may not want
  • 00:06:56.120 --> 00:06:58.100
  • you to share certain things and so--
  • 00:06:58.100 --> 00:06:59.260
  • - Who formulated these questions?
  • 00:06:59.260 --> 00:07:01.200
  • - They asked just some random people.
  • 00:07:01.240 --> 00:07:04.070
  • - Okay, what about you all?
  • 00:07:05.060 --> 00:07:06.110
  • Do you tell your family about your stuff?
  • 00:07:06.110 --> 00:07:08.150
  • (audience responds)
  • 00:07:08.150 --> 00:07:10.200
  • You don't?
  • 00:07:10.200 --> 00:07:11.150
  • (audience responds)
  • 00:07:11.150 --> 00:07:12.210
  • Okay, give me the hands of those who don't.
  • 00:07:12.210 --> 00:07:14.240
  • Well I don't family nothing.
  • 00:07:14.240 --> 00:07:16.090
  • And then you tell your wife, "I tell you what,
  • 00:07:16.090 --> 00:07:18.030
  • "you better not be telling your family."
  • 00:07:18.030 --> 00:07:19.210
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:07:19.210 --> 00:07:21.090
  • How many of y'all say I do?
  • 00:07:21.170 --> 00:07:23.140
  • I do tell my.
  • 00:07:24.140 --> 00:07:25.180
  • And my hand is raised.
  • 00:07:26.120 --> 00:07:28.130
  • You know there's this misnomer I think that exists
  • 00:07:29.260 --> 00:07:34.120
  • where we don't involve our families
  • 00:07:34.190 --> 00:07:38.090
  • because after a while we'll be back together,
  • 00:07:38.090 --> 00:07:41.050
  • and they'll still hold the same grudge.
  • 00:07:42.100 --> 00:07:45.100
  • Is that the premise that you all are thinking?
  • 00:07:45.160 --> 00:07:47.180
  • (audience responds)
  • 00:07:47.180 --> 00:07:48.250
  • - Yeah, well that's, I mean I wouldn't tell
  • 00:07:48.250 --> 00:07:50.170
  • that family member either.
  • 00:07:50.170 --> 00:07:52.070
  • I would talk only family member like I wouldn't
  • 00:07:52.130 --> 00:07:54.250
  • expect to talk with Lisa and tell her some things
  • 00:07:54.250 --> 00:07:58.030
  • and then let her have a issue with you
  • 00:07:58.030 --> 00:08:00.210
  • when things were okay with us.
  • 00:08:01.120 --> 00:08:03.110
  • I would only talk to family members that I know
  • 00:08:03.110 --> 00:08:05.190
  • that are mature enough to handle certain things.
  • 00:08:05.190 --> 00:08:07.190
  • Would not be judgemental,
  • 00:08:07.190 --> 00:08:09.170
  • but be able to give me wise counsel.
  • 00:08:09.170 --> 00:08:12.130
  • - Oh y'all always going along with DeeDee.
  • 00:08:13.290 --> 00:08:17.040
  • It's amazing.
  • 00:08:17.270 --> 00:08:19.050
  • Everything DeeDee said "He He DeeDee."
  • 00:08:19.160 --> 00:08:22.250
  • I'm talking about issues of problems,
  • 00:08:28.140 --> 00:08:32.210
  • or issues. - [DeeDee] Yes, yes, yes.
  • 00:08:32.270 --> 00:08:35.060
  • - [DeeDee] And I'm gonna tell you something--
  • 00:08:35.060 --> 00:08:36.120
  • - Do you tell your family?
  • 00:08:36.120 --> 00:08:37.160
  • - Yes, that's what I just said.
  • 00:08:37.160 --> 00:08:38.270
  • I had family members I would tell.
  • 00:08:38.270 --> 00:08:40.110
  • - If we're having a problem.
  • 00:08:40.110 --> 00:08:41.150
  • She left me one time.
  • 00:08:41.150 --> 00:08:43.260
  • Was I at work?
  • 00:08:43.260 --> 00:08:44.270
  • - Yes.
  • 00:08:44.270 --> 00:08:46.100
  • - I went off to work, I didn't even know you left me.
  • 00:08:46.100 --> 00:08:47.280
  • - I know.
  • 00:08:47.280 --> 00:08:49.060
  • - She packed up all her clothes and she left me.
  • 00:08:49.060 --> 00:08:52.010
  • And while she was leaving the house
  • 00:08:52.050 --> 00:08:54.170
  • with all her clothes.
  • 00:08:54.250 --> 00:08:55.240
  • Did you all know she left me?
  • 00:08:55.240 --> 00:08:57.060
  • You knew?!
  • 00:08:57.060 --> 00:08:58.110
  • I guess everybody.
  • 00:08:59.040 --> 00:09:00.080
  • Have you seen her
  • 00:09:00.080 --> 00:09:02.190
  • Why oh why
  • 00:09:03.230 --> 00:09:06.220
  • Did she have to leave me
  • 00:09:06.220 --> 00:09:08.120
  • - You know, you know.
  • 00:09:08.120 --> 00:09:09.170
  • Go away
  • 00:09:09.170 --> 00:09:11.090
  • You wouldn't be singing that song, you would know.
  • 00:09:12.080 --> 00:09:14.070
  • - Listen, she left me.
  • 00:09:14.070 --> 00:09:16.090
  • Lisa saw you.
  • 00:09:16.090 --> 00:09:17.190
  • Or did you stop by her house?
  • 00:09:17.190 --> 00:09:19.030
  • - I saw Lisa, I stopped.
  • 00:09:19.030 --> 00:09:20.050
  • I saw her and I turned around.
  • 00:09:20.050 --> 00:09:21.110
  • We stopped and talked.
  • 00:09:21.110 --> 00:09:22.230
  • And then I came back to her house.
  • 00:09:22.230 --> 00:09:24.200
  • - And Lisa talked you into not leaving me?
  • 00:09:25.060 --> 00:09:27.020
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:09:27.020 --> 00:09:27.250
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:09:27.250 --> 00:09:30.090
  • - I'm glad you're so overwhelmed
  • 00:09:34.050 --> 00:09:37.000
  • and enthused by that.
  • 00:09:37.240 --> 00:09:39.090
  • You know?
  • 00:09:39.090 --> 00:09:40.070
  • - I am now, but then I wasn't.
  • 00:09:40.070 --> 00:09:41.170
  • - What did she say?
  • 00:09:42.120 --> 00:09:43.140
  • - I have no idea?
  • 00:09:43.140 --> 00:09:44.260
  • - But why didn't she tell me you was leaving me?
  • 00:09:44.260 --> 00:09:46.120
  • - Why's she gonna tell you?
  • 00:09:46.120 --> 00:09:47.250
  • - So family's should have like secrets,
  • 00:09:47.250 --> 00:09:50.070
  • where you tell her stuff.
  • 00:09:50.070 --> 00:09:52.110
  • - I didn't even go nowhere.
  • 00:09:53.010 --> 00:09:54.090
  • I just took a ride.
  • 00:09:54.090 --> 00:09:56.100
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:09:56.100 --> 00:09:58.100
  • - That was gonna be a one way trip.
  • 00:10:00.180 --> 00:10:02.190
  • - So Britney, - [Pastor] That's cool.
  • 00:10:05.200 --> 00:10:06.260
  • - [DeeDee] ask Britney, I would like to know
  • 00:10:06.260 --> 00:10:07.190
  • what they would say.
  • 00:10:07.190 --> 00:10:09.100
  • - Well it all depends.
  • 00:10:11.030 --> 00:10:13.010
  • - All depends.
  • 00:10:13.010 --> 00:10:14.160
  • - Like if it's an issue that we can handle on our own, no.
  • 00:10:14.160 --> 00:10:18.120
  • If it's an issue that we're struggling with,
  • 00:10:18.270 --> 00:10:21.130
  • and we need some outside help,
  • 00:10:21.210 --> 00:10:23.170
  • then that's when we come to y'all.
  • 00:10:23.170 --> 00:10:25.140
  • - [Pastor] You would come and tell me
  • 00:10:25.200 --> 00:10:26.270
  • the things that you all have challenging?
  • 00:10:26.270 --> 00:10:29.090
  • - Yeah, if it's continuous challenges.
  • 00:10:29.240 --> 00:10:32.130
  • I mean cause there have
  • 00:10:33.240 --> 00:10:35.050
  • been some challenges. - [Pastor] Is that the norm?
  • 00:10:35.050 --> 00:10:36.190
  • - [DeeDee] Is what the norm? - [Britney] It all depends.
  • 00:10:36.260 --> 00:10:37.260
  • - Is that because I'm a pastor?
  • 00:10:37.260 --> 00:10:39.170
  • - [DeeDee] No.
  • 00:10:39.270 --> 00:10:41.030
  • - Should other people who have father's
  • 00:10:41.030 --> 00:10:42.190
  • who are spiritual and da da da da?
  • 00:10:42.190 --> 00:10:44.240
  • - I think again, if they're gonna give wise counsel
  • 00:10:44.240 --> 00:10:48.220
  • and not be judgemental. (Britney mumbles)
  • 00:10:48.220 --> 00:10:50.140
  • - [Pastor] Okay, I'm glad you feel comfortable
  • 00:10:52.060 --> 00:10:53.250
  • in that race car.
  • 00:10:53.250 --> 00:10:54.240
  • - No, I do.
  • 00:10:54.240 --> 00:10:55.290
  • At first I didn't cause I thought
  • 00:10:55.290 --> 00:10:58.150
  • I always had to protect him.
  • 00:10:58.150 --> 00:11:00.240
  • - That's good.
  • 00:11:01.250 --> 00:11:02.260
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:11:03.010 --> 00:11:04.140
  • - And some wives are protecting husband's inconsistencies
  • 00:11:04.140 --> 00:11:08.030
  • as such and aren't revealing
  • 00:11:08.100 --> 00:11:11.020
  • some of those inadequacies.
  • 00:11:11.020 --> 00:11:14.040
  • And it's detrimental for the relationship.
  • 00:11:14.040 --> 00:11:17.070
  • It really is. - [DeeDee] Totally.
  • 00:11:17.200 --> 00:11:18.260
  • - [Pastor] Because it's a pride thing really
  • 00:11:18.260 --> 00:11:22.170
  • that's preventing them to kind of expose
  • 00:11:22.170 --> 00:11:27.130
  • to help opposed to cover to hurt.
  • 00:11:27.130 --> 00:11:31.220
  • And that's so important.
  • 00:11:33.190 --> 00:11:35.140
  • She told me years ago.
  • 00:11:35.160 --> 00:11:37.000
  • She said "I tell you what, I don't do phony.
  • 00:11:37.000 --> 00:11:39.200
  • "And so you can act like you wanna act one way at home
  • 00:11:41.160 --> 00:11:44.230
  • "and then expect for me to act a certain way at church.
  • 00:11:44.230 --> 00:11:47.260
  • "I'm not gonna be putting on with you and your games."
  • 00:11:47.260 --> 00:11:51.240
  • And some of you wives are going along
  • 00:11:51.240 --> 00:11:55.070
  • with some of this stuff and that's why he hadn't
  • 00:11:55.070 --> 00:11:58.050
  • stopped some of that goofy stuff.
  • 00:11:58.050 --> 00:12:01.290
  • Because he knows that you're just gonna sit
  • 00:12:02.030 --> 00:12:04.230
  • there in silence and in pain and let it go.
  • 00:12:04.230 --> 00:12:09.170
  • Well you're not, you're doing your entire relationship
  • 00:12:09.170 --> 00:12:14.010
  • and children a disservice.
  • 00:12:14.010 --> 00:12:17.010
  • Somebody should know about that.
  • 00:12:18.170 --> 00:12:20.080
  • I remember when I came home from the hospital.
  • 00:12:20.080 --> 00:12:22.250
  • I just had enough of hospitals
  • 00:12:23.050 --> 00:12:24.290
  • and doctors and all this thing.
  • 00:12:24.290 --> 00:12:26.250
  • I'm a grown dog gone man.
  • 00:12:26.250 --> 00:12:28.070
  • And she...
  • 00:12:28.070 --> 00:12:29.200
  • She opens the door for this therapist
  • 00:12:30.170 --> 00:12:33.170
  • and she said "Mike the therapist is here."
  • 00:12:33.170 --> 00:12:35.170
  • I said "Tell him I said go away."
  • 00:12:35.170 --> 00:12:38.070
  • And she said "No," she came back into the bedroom.
  • 00:12:39.040 --> 00:12:42.020
  • "You gonna come out here now.
  • 00:12:42.020 --> 00:12:43.150
  • "I'm telling you right now you gonna come
  • 00:12:43.150 --> 00:12:44.280
  • "out of this room.
  • 00:12:44.280 --> 00:12:46.100
  • "This man done come all this way to take care of you
  • 00:12:46.100 --> 00:12:48.200
  • "and you gonna sit back here.
  • 00:12:48.200 --> 00:12:49.180
  • "I ain't having it."
  • 00:12:49.180 --> 00:12:50.250
  • I said, "You just better get on out this room.
  • 00:12:53.060 --> 00:12:55.140
  • "And tell that man I'm not coming out."
  • 00:12:56.020 --> 00:12:58.040
  • She said "I tell you what, I'm gonna go get Dr. Price
  • 00:12:58.230 --> 00:13:01.000
  • "on the phone right now."
  • 00:13:01.000 --> 00:13:02.100
  • I said "Well call him."
  • 00:13:02.100 --> 00:13:04.000
  • - What did I do? - [Pastor] I believe.
  • 00:13:05.200 --> 00:13:06.280
  • - [Pastor] She called him.
  • 00:13:06.280 --> 00:13:08.060
  • I believe that there should be
  • 00:13:09.220 --> 00:13:11.230
  • some level of authority that's in every man's life
  • 00:13:11.230 --> 00:13:16.080
  • where he will have to sit up in the presence of another man,
  • 00:13:16.080 --> 00:13:20.180
  • or at least some kind of accountability.
  • 00:13:20.180 --> 00:13:23.250
  • - Yes.
  • 00:13:23.250 --> 00:13:25.010
  • Somebody that you'll - [Pastor] You know
  • 00:13:25.010 --> 00:13:26.070
  • listen to. - [Pastor] you on your own
  • 00:13:26.070 --> 00:13:26.260
  • and such.
  • 00:13:26.260 --> 00:13:28.080
  • - Somebody that you will - [DeeDee] That's dangerous.
  • 00:13:28.080 --> 00:13:29.130
  • - [Pastor] listen to is dangerous.
  • 00:13:29.130 --> 00:13:30.110
  • We're at the point right now,
  • 00:13:30.130 --> 00:13:31.250
  • that I'm doing most of the talking because I got
  • 00:13:31.250 --> 00:13:34.190
  • so many things really together I don't have to do
  • 00:13:34.190 --> 00:13:37.260
  • as much listening as I once had to do.
  • 00:13:37.260 --> 00:13:40.250
  • I've entered into a position where I'm now fathering,
  • 00:13:40.250 --> 00:13:44.160
  • I'm fathering men and pastor's and others
  • 00:13:44.160 --> 00:13:48.290
  • who are submitting their relationship to our lives.
  • 00:13:48.290 --> 00:13:51.230
  • And I'm giving them principals that's
  • 00:13:51.230 --> 00:13:54.060
  • causing them to have great relationship.
  • 00:13:54.060 --> 00:13:56.100
  • But it's so good to know even my own daughter and son,
  • 00:13:56.100 --> 00:13:59.180
  • you feel the same way Kevin?
  • 00:13:59.180 --> 00:14:01.040
  • I mean if she came to me about that?
  • 00:14:01.040 --> 00:14:03.160
  • - Yeah. - [Pastor] Or anything.
  • 00:14:03.260 --> 00:14:04.260
  • - [Pastor] I think it should.
  • 00:14:05.100 --> 00:14:06.080
  • Tim looking like, "I don't know
  • 00:14:06.080 --> 00:14:07.150
  • "if we gonna do that."
  • 00:14:07.150 --> 00:14:08.240
  • Do you see him down there like.
  • 00:14:09.260 --> 00:14:11.050
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:14:11.050 --> 00:14:12.180
  • - [DeeDee] Like "We ain't talked about
  • 00:14:12.180 --> 00:14:13.260
  • "this Bre, Bre." - [Pastor] Is that your look
  • 00:14:13.260 --> 00:14:14.190
  • - [Pastor] or what?
  • 00:14:14.190 --> 00:14:16.090
  • But still, you're in almost on something
  • 00:14:16.290 --> 00:14:20.190
  • like our family meeting in this setting.
  • 00:14:20.190 --> 00:14:23.180
  • Because this is how we sit around in our home even today,
  • 00:14:23.180 --> 00:14:27.250
  • and discuss issues like this that are jur-mane
  • 00:14:27.250 --> 00:14:30.290
  • for blessed relationships.
  • 00:14:30.290 --> 00:14:33.060
  • And I asked them about how far can I go?
  • 00:14:33.060 --> 00:14:36.180
  • What's my boundary in sharing with your relationship
  • 00:14:36.180 --> 00:14:41.100
  • so forth and so on.
  • 00:14:41.100 --> 00:14:42.230
  • I think this is a great idea to share in this capacity.
  • 00:14:42.230 --> 00:14:46.170
  • - [DeeDee] I do too.
  • 00:14:46.170 --> 00:14:47.160
  • You did good.
  • 00:14:47.160 --> 00:14:48.260
  • - Josh, what about you?
  • 00:14:49.160 --> 00:14:50.290
  • - Had to cut my mike on.
  • 00:14:53.030 --> 00:14:54.160
  • I mean yeah, I think the same thing Britney just said.
  • 00:14:55.220 --> 00:14:58.130
  • You know, if it's something I can handle
  • 00:14:58.130 --> 00:15:00.110
  • or something that we can handle then we get it done.
  • 00:15:00.110 --> 00:15:03.090
  • But if it's something that keeps going on
  • 00:15:03.090 --> 00:15:05.020
  • then I need to ask my mama like Mike's.
  • 00:15:05.020 --> 00:15:09.240
  • - [Pastor] Mama.
  • 00:15:10.050 --> 00:15:11.000
  • - What' up.
  • 00:15:11.000 --> 00:15:11.230
  • - [Pastor] Mama.
  • 00:15:11.230 --> 00:15:12.290
  • - What's up you know what I mean?
  • 00:15:12.290 --> 00:15:14.130
  • - [Pastor] Is she gonna be crazy like this forever?
  • 00:15:14.130 --> 00:15:16.010
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:15:16.010 --> 00:15:18.030
  • - He don't say it. - [Joshua] And alot of times
  • 00:15:18.060 --> 00:15:19.140
  • - [Joshua] I got to my mama.
  • 00:15:19.140 --> 00:15:20.200
  • If I ever go to my dad only because
  • 00:15:20.200 --> 00:15:22.050
  • I know my mom kinda know more stuff about
  • 00:15:22.050 --> 00:15:24.080
  • females than my dad would so.
  • 00:15:24.080 --> 00:15:26.180
  • - What?!
  • 00:15:26.180 --> 00:15:27.120
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:15:27.120 --> 00:15:28.240
  • That was the most ridiculous thing you could ever--
  • 00:15:28.240 --> 00:15:30.260
  • - [DeeDee] No it wasn't! - [Josh] That's serious though.
  • 00:15:30.260 --> 00:15:32.080
  • - [DeeDee] That was good Joshua.
  • 00:15:32.080 --> 00:15:35.030
  • - Bless the Lord.
  • 00:15:36.030 --> 00:15:36.290
  • - That was good.
  • 00:15:42.250 --> 00:15:44.070
  • - And Keisha is a different kind of specimen.
  • 00:15:45.010 --> 00:15:48.100
  • Keisha--
  • 00:15:49.020 --> 00:15:50.230
  • - [DeeDee] Only child.
  • 00:15:51.000 --> 00:15:52.060
  • - Only child, but at the same time,
  • 00:15:52.060 --> 00:15:55.000
  • I have to give Keisha like her room and her space.
  • 00:15:55.120 --> 00:15:59.090
  • You know somebody told Brelyn and them for instance.
  • 00:15:59.090 --> 00:16:02.210
  • Keep your family out of your business.
  • 00:16:03.120 --> 00:16:05.250
  • And I'm not quite sure what they were
  • 00:16:06.190 --> 00:16:10.040
  • talking about in it's entirety,
  • 00:16:10.040 --> 00:16:13.120
  • but a lot of benefit has come from
  • 00:16:13.200 --> 00:16:18.190
  • involving my family in my business.
  • 00:16:18.270 --> 00:16:21.270
  • Like when Josh was arrested for attempted murder.
  • 00:16:23.190 --> 00:16:26.150
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:16:28.210 --> 00:16:31.020
  • - Why you gotta bring that up again?
  • 00:16:31.120 --> 00:16:33.020
  • That has nothing to do with it.
  • 00:16:33.210 --> 00:16:35.030
  • - It sound like I tried to kill somebody.
  • 00:16:35.030 --> 00:16:36.170
  • I didn't try to kill nobody.
  • 00:16:36.170 --> 00:16:38.110
  • - [Pastor] That's what you were arrested for.
  • 00:16:38.110 --> 00:16:39.260
  • - I just happened to be in - [Pastor] That's what you
  • 00:16:39.260 --> 00:16:41.060
  • the car (mumbles). - [Pastor] were arrested for.
  • 00:16:41.060 --> 00:16:42.150
  • - [Pastor] Attempted murder.
  • 00:16:42.150 --> 00:16:43.240
  • That's what it sound like to all them.
  • 00:16:44.130 --> 00:16:46.080
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:16:46.080 --> 00:16:48.140
  • (DeeDee laughs and sighs)
  • 00:16:52.000 --> 00:16:52.270
  • - [DeeDee] This is funny.
  • 00:16:52.270 --> 00:16:54.100
  • - [Pastor] Didn't it sound like he tried to kill somebody?
  • 00:16:54.100 --> 00:16:55.080
  • - [DeeDee] The way you said it.
  • 00:16:55.080 --> 00:16:56.050
  • - What is attempted murder?
  • 00:16:56.050 --> 00:16:57.250
  • - [DeeDee] That's the way you said it.
  • 00:16:58.030 --> 00:16:59.150
  • - I intended to say it that way.
  • 00:16:59.150 --> 00:17:01.030
  • - I know it.
  • 00:17:01.030 --> 00:17:02.080
  • - But it was her idea at the time.
  • 00:17:02.190 --> 00:17:05.190
  • It's all good main man.
  • 00:17:05.190 --> 00:17:07.030
  • - Yeah, cause it was my idea to bring it to my family.
  • 00:17:07.030 --> 00:17:10.030
  • - She called a family meeting.
  • 00:17:10.120 --> 00:17:11.290
  • - I called a family meeting with all of my siblings.
  • 00:17:11.290 --> 00:17:14.060
  • - I mean, who does that include?
  • 00:17:14.060 --> 00:17:15.250
  • - I'm gonna tell them.
  • 00:17:15.250 --> 00:17:17.080
  • With all of my siblings, with all of your siblings,
  • 00:17:17.080 --> 00:17:18.220
  • I said everybody, I invited everybody over.
  • 00:17:18.220 --> 00:17:21.220
  • - Now shouldn't that be a family matter?
  • 00:17:21.220 --> 00:17:24.030
  • - Because some of you may try to keep it within this part,
  • 00:17:24.030 --> 00:17:27.220
  • well I need to take it out you know a little wider
  • 00:17:27.220 --> 00:17:31.090
  • because you don't know who have your answer.
  • 00:17:31.090 --> 00:17:33.180
  • - But were you even thinking along that line?
  • 00:17:33.180 --> 00:17:35.250
  • - No, but I'm thinking this is my family.
  • 00:17:35.250 --> 00:17:37.270
  • We know how to pray and come together,
  • 00:17:37.270 --> 00:17:39.090
  • this is what we do.
  • 00:17:39.090 --> 00:17:40.200
  • - And that's why you would involve your family
  • 00:17:40.200 --> 00:17:43.120
  • in some of these issues.
  • 00:17:43.120 --> 00:17:45.090
  • in some of these issues.
  • 00:17:45.090 --> 00:17:45.100
  • We're not just gossiping.
  • 00:17:45.280 --> 00:17:47.090
  • We're not just spreading information.
  • 00:17:47.090 --> 00:17:49.190
  • We need those who can get with us in faith,
  • 00:17:49.190 --> 00:17:53.000
  • because one can chase a thousand,
  • 00:17:53.000 --> 00:17:55.160
  • and two can put 10.000.
  • 00:17:55.160 --> 00:17:57.220
  • So why not, why not your family?
  • 00:17:57.290 --> 00:18:00.120
  • Who do you think will cover you the most?
  • 00:18:00.120 --> 00:18:02.230
  • Now that's not all y'alls family.
  • 00:18:02.230 --> 00:18:04.230
  • - Yeah that's not everybody's family.
  • 00:18:04.230 --> 00:18:06.160
  • Yeah you have to--
  • 00:18:06.290 --> 00:18:07.060
  • Yeah you have to--
  • 00:18:07.140 --> 00:18:07.260
  • - I said something good?!
  • 00:18:08.030 --> 00:18:09.050
  • Well would you clap?!
  • 00:18:09.200 --> 00:18:11.100
  • I said something good.
  • 00:18:14.240 --> 00:18:15.240
  • - You always do.
  • 00:18:15.240 --> 00:18:16.250
  • - I said something good.
  • 00:18:16.250 --> 00:18:18.020
  • - You are so funny.
  • 00:18:18.020 --> 00:18:19.240
  • They like "Yeah, that's not my family?"
  • 00:18:19.240 --> 00:18:21.080
  • - Let the record reflect.
  • 00:18:21.080 --> 00:18:23.090
  • - [DeeDee] You crazy.
  • 00:18:24.150 --> 00:18:25.270
  • Look, but one thing I really respect
  • 00:18:25.270 --> 00:18:28.260
  • about Keisha and I like--
  • 00:18:28.260 --> 00:18:30.160
  • - Don't, I'm glad you brought me back to that.
  • 00:18:30.160 --> 00:18:33.010
  • But keep that family piece going,
  • 00:18:33.130 --> 00:18:35.030
  • but don't let me forget Keisha.
  • 00:18:35.030 --> 00:18:36.280
  • - Okay, you wanna say your part first?
  • 00:18:36.280 --> 00:18:38.290
  • - I so love Keisha.
  • 00:18:39.220 --> 00:18:41.040
  • - You gonna cry?
  • 00:18:45.130 --> 00:18:46.110
  • - Man.
  • 00:18:46.110 --> 00:18:47.040
  • - Okay let me go.
  • 00:18:47.040 --> 00:18:47.270
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:18:47.270 --> 00:18:49.050
  • It's like double dutch tonight.
  • 00:18:57.100 --> 00:18:58.280
  • I don't wanna cry.
  • 00:18:58.280 --> 00:19:00.230
  • - See because I feel that
  • 00:19:00.230 --> 00:19:03.150
  • I want to win Keisha.
  • 00:19:04.060 --> 00:19:06.150
  • I don't really know where I truly stand with Keisha.
  • 00:19:07.070 --> 00:19:12.020
  • - Okay let me tell you.
  • 00:19:12.180 --> 00:19:13.250
  • Cause like Keisha is, that's on his part.
  • 00:19:13.250 --> 00:19:18.090
  • - That's just my part.
  • 00:19:18.090 --> 00:19:19.090
  • - Yeah that's your part.
  • 00:19:19.090 --> 00:19:20.200
  • - It's not like she's - [DeeDee] Because it's not.
  • 00:19:20.200 --> 00:19:21.250
  • - [Pastor] reflected anything negative.
  • 00:19:21.250 --> 00:19:22.190
  • - [DeeDee] No because--
  • 00:19:22.190 --> 00:19:23.170
  • - I'm not saying that at all.
  • 00:19:23.170 --> 00:19:24.120
  • - Okay baby, okay.
  • 00:19:24.120 --> 00:19:25.170
  • - I just really want her to know,
  • 00:19:25.170 --> 00:19:27.000
  • how much she's a part of who we are.
  • 00:19:27.070 --> 00:19:31.040
  • - [DeeDee] I think you tell her that enough.
  • 00:19:32.100 --> 00:19:33.190
  • - I tell her all the time.
  • 00:19:33.190 --> 00:19:35.120
  • - So there, if she doesn't know that then.
  • 00:19:36.000 --> 00:19:38.060
  • - I've shared it privately.
  • 00:19:39.240 --> 00:19:41.190
  • I mean come on, if we gonna talk like
  • 00:19:42.020 --> 00:19:43.150
  • we would talk at home in front of all these people.
  • 00:19:43.150 --> 00:19:46.290
  • - No, I mean that's fine.
  • 00:19:47.170 --> 00:19:49.000
  • But I wanna go back to the other part about sharing
  • 00:19:49.000 --> 00:19:52.030
  • and this part with--
  • 00:19:52.030 --> 00:19:53.010
  • - Okay, but don't forget about
  • 00:19:53.010 --> 00:19:54.060
  • bringing your family together as well.
  • 00:19:54.060 --> 00:19:56.070
  • To tell them about that episode.
  • 00:19:56.130 --> 00:19:58.140
  • - [DeeDee] I finished with that.
  • 00:19:59.290 --> 00:20:01.070
  • - No, no, no. - [DeeDee] I said we brought.
  • 00:20:01.070 --> 00:20:02.280
  • There are other points that can be made from that.
  • 00:20:02.280 --> 00:20:04.110
  • - Okay.
  • 00:20:04.110 --> 00:20:05.160
  • - I just want you to go to Keisha.
  • 00:20:05.160 --> 00:20:06.220
  • - Okay I'm gonna go back here to Keisha.
  • 00:20:06.220 --> 00:20:07.280
  • (DeeDee laughs)
  • 00:20:07.280 --> 00:20:09.060
  • This is funny.
  • 00:20:09.060 --> 00:20:10.110
  • But like Josh said, Josh will call me.
  • 00:20:10.180 --> 00:20:13.170
  • Keisha I've made it very clear with her
  • 00:20:13.170 --> 00:20:16.290
  • that I don't take sides.
  • 00:20:17.100 --> 00:20:19.250
  • I don't take sides at all.
  • 00:20:20.030 --> 00:20:22.070
  • We'll talk about Josh just like
  • 00:20:22.180 --> 00:20:25.020
  • you know I would talk about anybody.
  • 00:20:25.220 --> 00:20:27.220
  • If she has something to say, she's very free to discuss
  • 00:20:28.010 --> 00:20:31.180
  • and to share whatever she wanna say without
  • 00:20:31.180 --> 00:20:33.270
  • me trying to defend Josh.
  • 00:20:33.270 --> 00:20:36.050
  • My position is to give her information that can cause
  • 00:20:36.050 --> 00:20:39.210
  • her to have a blessed relationship.
  • 00:20:39.210 --> 00:20:41.230
  • That's my only interest.
  • 00:20:41.230 --> 00:20:43.110
  • I would give her. - [Pastor] But why are you
  • 00:20:43.110 --> 00:20:44.190
  • - [Pastor] so involved in their relationship?
  • 00:20:44.190 --> 00:20:46.220
  • - I'm only involved to the extent in which
  • 00:20:46.220 --> 00:20:49.010
  • they involve me and when they call me.
  • 00:20:49.010 --> 00:20:53.030
  • It's not like I'm gonna go to them and say
  • 00:20:54.010 --> 00:20:56.120
  • "Hey, you doing so and so."
  • 00:20:56.120 --> 00:20:58.090
  • Well I do do that too but--
  • 00:20:58.230 --> 00:21:00.070
  • - Yeah I was about to say, you do that sometimes.
  • 00:21:00.070 --> 00:21:02.130
  • - Well I'm glad that line thing done came out.
  • 00:21:02.130 --> 00:21:04.210
  • - [DeeDee] I don't do that.
  • 00:21:05.100 --> 00:21:06.210
  • - But yeah, even her - [Pastor] That was a lie
  • 00:21:06.210 --> 00:21:08.000
  • mom too though. - [Pastor] then there boy.
  • 00:21:08.000 --> 00:21:08.270
  • - [Pastor] I saw that demon.
  • 00:21:09.170 --> 00:21:10.110
  • - You know my parents.
  • 00:21:10.110 --> 00:21:11.230
  • It's not just my parents - [Pastor] Did you see that
  • 00:21:12.160 --> 00:21:13.290
  • but even her mom. - [Pastor] demon there Josh?
  • 00:21:13.290 --> 00:21:15.080
  • - Yeah I've seen it.
  • 00:21:15.080 --> 00:21:16.150
  • - [DeeDee] It's not that bad like that though.
  • 00:21:16.150 --> 00:21:17.220
  • It's not like I'm on them
  • 00:21:17.220 --> 00:21:20.010
  • or trying to get involved in certain things.
  • 00:21:20.090 --> 00:21:23.100
  • I'm more of like a follow up kind of person.
  • 00:21:23.100 --> 00:21:25.230
  • Like if you come to me and bring me something,
  • 00:21:25.230 --> 00:21:28.070
  • now I'm gonna come to make sure you
  • 00:21:28.070 --> 00:21:30.050
  • carry out the part.
  • 00:21:30.050 --> 00:21:31.280
  • You know the information
  • 00:21:32.050 --> 00:21:33.090
  • or the instructions that I gave you.
  • 00:21:33.090 --> 00:21:35.000
  • Because if you not gonna carry it out,
  • 00:21:35.000 --> 00:21:37.000
  • I don't care if it's my child or even one of you all.
  • 00:21:37.000 --> 00:21:39.250
  • I'm not gonna keep talking to you.
  • 00:21:39.250 --> 00:21:41.130
  • - But dig this.
  • 00:21:41.130 --> 00:21:42.210
  • Look how we're involved in their relationships.
  • 00:21:42.210 --> 00:21:45.020
  • - What do you wanna say?
  • 00:21:50.050 --> 00:21:51.120
  • - No, I just said look how we're involved.
  • 00:21:51.120 --> 00:21:53.080
  • - [DeeDee] How are we involved?
  • 00:21:53.210 --> 00:21:54.250
  • - We're involved like we're involved.
  • 00:21:54.250 --> 00:21:56.190
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:21:56.190 --> 00:21:59.030
  • It's apparent, it's obvious.
  • 00:21:59.250 --> 00:22:01.200
  • We have something to do
  • 00:22:01.200 --> 00:22:04.260
  • with every last one of their relationship.
  • 00:22:04.260 --> 00:22:06.190
  • But, the understanding is in most households,
  • 00:22:06.190 --> 00:22:11.080
  • "Your mother and father are to involved in our relationship.
  • 00:22:11.280 --> 00:22:15.060
  • "I want them to keep out of our relationship."
  • 00:22:15.060 --> 00:22:17.170
  • And the word family from it's original Greek tense
  • 00:22:17.260 --> 00:22:21.040
  • was the word that we have now in our vocabulary, connection.
  • 00:22:21.040 --> 00:22:26.020
  • So when I married her,
  • 00:22:26.100 --> 00:22:28.130
  • I didn't just marry her as some suppose.
  • 00:22:28.130 --> 00:22:31.210
  • "I didn't marry your mother, I married you!
  • 00:22:31.210 --> 00:22:33.220
  • "I didn't marry your whole family, I married you."
  • 00:22:33.220 --> 00:22:35.140
  • Well the word and the concept that was
  • 00:22:35.140 --> 00:22:37.260
  • in the mind of God was that families came together.
  • 00:22:37.260 --> 00:22:41.290
  • The Bird family and the Whims family.
  • 00:22:41.290 --> 00:22:45.010
  • And then when the Whims and the Birds got together
  • 00:22:45.010 --> 00:22:47.130
  • they became the WhimsBird family.
  • 00:22:47.130 --> 00:22:50.120
  • And those couldn't eat, the Bird family fed em.
  • 00:22:50.120 --> 00:22:53.230
  • And those who couldn't protect themself
  • 00:22:53.230 --> 00:22:55.200
  • the Whims family fed em.
  • 00:22:55.200 --> 00:22:57.150
  • And so when they came together they were stronger.
  • 00:22:57.150 --> 00:23:00.180
  • We don't use it to the benefit that it's
  • 00:23:00.270 --> 00:23:02.250
  • been designed to use it.
  • 00:23:02.250 --> 00:23:05.030
  • And that's all I'm trying to convey here.
  • 00:23:05.030 --> 00:23:06.290
  • You can be stronger together with the different entities
  • 00:23:06.290 --> 00:23:10.090
  • of your family that you are blocking out.
  • 00:23:10.090 --> 00:23:13.150
  • Just for your consideration.
  • 00:23:14.130 --> 00:23:16.110
  • Because there are some family members that you have
  • 00:23:16.230 --> 00:23:19.070
  • that know a little more about an area
  • 00:23:19.070 --> 00:23:22.020
  • that you are going through
  • 00:23:22.020 --> 00:23:23.170
  • and they are willing to share that information.
  • 00:23:23.170 --> 00:23:25.290
  • But no, you wanna be private and isolated and insulated
  • 00:23:25.290 --> 00:23:29.230
  • and not share that information.
  • 00:23:29.230 --> 00:23:32.040
  • We put that information out, I promise you,
  • 00:23:32.040 --> 00:23:35.020
  • the way we got to Josh emancipation (laughs)
  • 00:23:35.020 --> 00:23:39.030
  • when he was arrested for attempted murder
  • 00:23:39.030 --> 00:23:42.080
  • was we shared with our entire family.
  • 00:23:43.170 --> 00:23:46.150
  • And one of the family members said "Well I know a good
  • 00:23:47.050 --> 00:23:49.260
  • "attorney that's at Howard University."
  • 00:23:49.260 --> 00:23:52.130
  • Well the attorney at Howard University knew a--
  • 00:23:52.130 --> 00:23:55.030
  • - [DeeDee] Everybody knew somebody.
  • 00:23:55.030 --> 00:23:56.010
  • - Woo, everybody knew somebody.
  • 00:23:56.010 --> 00:23:58.010
  • And when we got to the person that we finally need
  • 00:23:58.010 --> 00:24:01.190
  • that person had the power to drop the charges.
  • 00:24:01.190 --> 00:24:05.010
  • Whatever.
  • 00:24:05.240 --> 00:24:06.270
  • And so if we would've
  • 00:24:06.270 --> 00:24:10.090
  • kept it to ourselves.
  • 00:24:10.090 --> 00:24:12.100
  • Like she went public with my attack.
  • 00:24:12.130 --> 00:24:15.190
  • She was supposed to keep it quiet.
  • 00:24:16.140 --> 00:24:18.090
  • I went into the hospital and I threatened
  • 00:24:18.090 --> 00:24:21.040
  • the first girl that I walked in to.
  • 00:24:21.040 --> 00:24:23.090
  • That girl Keisha, I'll never forget Keisha.
  • 00:24:23.090 --> 00:24:25.250
  • She's a member of the church.
  • 00:24:25.250 --> 00:24:27.090
  • And I walked in and she took my meter and Keisha said
  • 00:24:27.090 --> 00:24:30.160
  • "Pastor!"
  • 00:24:30.160 --> 00:24:31.230
  • I said "Keisha, I can barely breathe, Keisha.
  • 00:24:31.230 --> 00:24:35.040
  • "Don't you tell a single soul that I'm in here.
  • 00:24:37.110 --> 00:24:40.110
  • "Oh Pastor I won't tell anything.
  • 00:24:41.020 --> 00:24:42.090
  • "It's against the HIPAA, the NAPA, the PIPA."
  • 00:24:42.090 --> 00:24:45.110
  • - HIPAA, HIPAA law.
  • 00:24:45.110 --> 00:24:46.270
  • - What is it?
  • 00:24:47.080 --> 00:24:47.290
  • - HIPAA.
  • 00:24:47.290 --> 00:24:49.060
  • - Okay, well you know, as long as you know
  • 00:24:49.060 --> 00:24:50.160
  • you know what I'm saying.
  • 00:24:50.160 --> 00:24:51.290
  • "It's against some law for me to tell somebody."
  • 00:24:52.100 --> 00:24:56.040
  • And I wanted to just keep it under the radar.
  • 00:24:56.040 --> 00:24:59.140
  • I didn't want anybody to know.
  • 00:24:59.140 --> 00:25:01.020
  • This one right here went public with the thing.
  • 00:25:01.020 --> 00:25:04.120
  • Internet, Facebook, Instagram, I'm like,
  • 00:25:04.120 --> 00:25:07.250
  • "Are you serious?!"
  • 00:25:08.110 --> 00:25:09.170
  • I was asleep, I didn't have any rebuttal.
  • 00:25:09.170 --> 00:25:12.050
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:25:12.050 --> 00:25:13.230
  • Make marriage easy.
  • 00:25:15.140 --> 00:25:15.270

  • in the body of Christ wanted me dead.
  • 00:25:48.120 --> 00:25:51.070

  • so that we can come and enrich marriages.
  • 00:26:53.130 --> 00:26:56.260
  • I just ran into a young lady the other night, and she said,
  • 00:26:56.260 --> 00:27:01.280
  • "Pastor Freeman, you, with all due respect,
  • 00:27:01.280 --> 00:27:05.280
  • you are a fool,
  • 00:27:05.280 --> 00:27:07.100

  • 00:27:07.100 --> 00:27:09.070
  • She called me a fool, can you imagine that?
  • 00:27:09.070 --> 00:27:11.250
  • But then she concluded by saying,
  • 00:27:11.250 --> 00:27:13.240
  • "My marriage is
  • 00:27:13.240 --> 00:27:15.140
  • so much better
  • 00:27:15.140 --> 00:27:16.260
  • because of your transparency,
  • 00:27:16.260 --> 00:27:19.090
  • your candor, and your humor."
  • 00:27:20.120 --> 00:27:22.290
  • I don't know where this humor has come from, I really don't.
  • 00:27:22.290 --> 00:27:27.090
  • It's not even something I want.
  • 00:27:27.090 --> 00:27:29.130
  • I recall Jesse Duplantis saying the same thing,
  • 00:27:29.130 --> 00:27:32.260
  • that God had just made it a part of my ministry.
  • 00:27:32.260 --> 00:27:36.010
  • And we have a good time, we have an exciting time,
  • 00:27:36.010 --> 00:27:38.250
  • and I'm just that enriched, I'm just that fulfilled.
  • 00:27:38.250 --> 00:27:42.290

  • and literally try
  • 00:27:52.260 --> 00:27:54.290
  • to destroy
  • 00:27:54.290 --> 00:27:56.150
