  • I don't think it's always bad, because sometimes people
  • 00:00:25.180 --> 00:00:29.040
  • just have to really understand
  • 00:00:29.040 --> 00:00:30.240
  • how you feel about a certain thing.
  • 00:00:30.240 --> 00:00:32.120
  • But you shouldn't just spaz for no reason.
  • 00:00:32.120 --> 00:00:35.190
  • You shouldn't just trip out for no reason.
  • 00:00:35.190 --> 00:00:37.120
  • Like my dad used to just trip out for no reason.
  • 00:00:37.120 --> 00:00:40.110
  • So I had to kinda and I (audience laughs)
  • 00:00:40.220 --> 00:00:43.190
  • would watch (laughs). (DeeDee laughs loudly)
  • 00:00:43.190 --> 00:00:45.060
  • - [DeeDee] Cut his Mike.
  • 00:00:45.060 --> 00:00:46.110
  • - You don't know which mike I got.
  • 00:00:47.090 --> 00:00:49.000
  • - But then I mean you know,
  • 00:01:24.060 --> 00:01:24.160
  • back in the day.
  • 00:01:24.190 --> 00:01:27.000
  • You know he is a spaz artist.
  • 00:01:27.230 --> 00:01:29.150
  • You know what I'm saying?
  • 00:01:29.150 --> 00:01:30.130
  • Like any little thing man.
  • 00:01:30.130 --> 00:01:33.010
  • It can go from zero to 100 real quick.
  • 00:01:33.010 --> 00:01:35.240
  • - In zero seconds.
  • 00:01:35.240 --> 00:01:37.100
  • - In zero seconds.
  • 00:01:38.060 --> 00:01:39.130
  • So I've seen a lot of those traits in me
  • 00:01:39.130 --> 00:01:43.090
  • where I kind of just pop off or just go off.
  • 00:01:43.090 --> 00:01:46.100
  • And I think that's like my biggest thing
  • 00:01:46.100 --> 00:01:48.280
  • to like relax, just to calm down, kinda breathe.
  • 00:01:48.280 --> 00:01:53.010
  • And that's why I even have told her,
  • 00:01:53.010 --> 00:01:54.200
  • like if I'm ever talking and I'm just like.
  • 00:01:54.200 --> 00:01:57.160
  • You've noticed it from my dad he get emotional
  • 00:01:59.090 --> 00:02:01.090
  • and stuff like that.
  • 00:02:01.090 --> 00:02:02.230
  • Once we start talking and it's something that we are
  • 00:02:02.230 --> 00:02:04.170
  • passionate about then it's like.
  • 00:02:05.010 --> 00:02:07.040
  • "We like, you know, and you gotta huh and you huh."
  • 00:02:07.040 --> 00:02:10.170
  • So it sometimes. (pastor laughs)
  • 00:02:10.190 --> 00:02:12.030
  • So it's like sometimes I just tell her to tell me
  • 00:02:14.160 --> 00:02:17.060
  • you know like alright relax it's cool.
  • 00:02:17.060 --> 00:02:19.150
  • Just you know. - [Keisha] I taught him that.
  • 00:02:19.150 --> 00:02:21.020
  • - [Pastor] You tell her to tell you.
  • 00:02:21.020 --> 00:02:22.040
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:02:22.040 --> 00:02:23.090
  • Not in the moment cause of course
  • 00:02:23.190 --> 00:02:24.290
  • I don't wanna hear it in the moment.
  • 00:02:24.290 --> 00:02:26.210
  • But I'm saying, (everyone laughs)
  • 00:02:26.210 --> 00:02:27.250
  • you know like right now we at home--
  • 00:02:27.250 --> 00:02:29.070
  • - Well that's the time it's most important.
  • 00:02:29.070 --> 00:02:30.280
  • - Yeah I know, but I'm saying I wouldn't
  • 00:02:30.280 --> 00:02:33.120
  • tell her in that moment.
  • 00:02:33.120 --> 00:02:34.200
  • I'm telling her ahead of time before, you know,
  • 00:02:34.200 --> 00:02:36.180
  • when I do kinda spaz.
  • 00:02:36.180 --> 00:02:40.260
  • Like try to get her to get me before I do spaz.
  • 00:02:41.290 --> 00:02:46.190
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:02:46.190 --> 00:02:48.180
  • - Can anybody relate to the spaz episodes?
  • 00:02:49.040 --> 00:02:52.230
  • Any brother's spaz in here still today?
  • 00:02:52.230 --> 00:02:56.210
  • You getting better?
  • 00:02:57.060 --> 00:02:58.060
  • (audience responds)
  • 00:02:58.060 --> 00:02:59.040
  • In Jesus name.
  • 00:02:59.040 --> 00:03:00.200
  • - Cause a lot of times that the--
  • 00:03:02.010 --> 00:03:03.130
  • - Hello, is my mike on?
  • 00:03:03.130 --> 00:03:04.290
  • - Yeah your mike is on.
  • 00:03:04.290 --> 00:03:05.220
  • - Oh okay.
  • 00:03:05.220 --> 00:03:06.290
  • Hold on though, hold on, hold on, hold on.
  • 00:03:06.290 --> 00:03:08.240
  • But yeah, the spazzing
  • 00:03:09.280 --> 00:03:12.260
  • is not always.
  • 00:03:13.230 --> 00:03:16.120
  • I don't think it's always bad, because sometimes people
  • 00:03:16.120 --> 00:03:19.280
  • just have to really understand
  • 00:03:19.280 --> 00:03:21.180
  • how you feel about a certain thing.
  • 00:03:21.180 --> 00:03:23.060
  • But you shouldn't just spaz for no reason.
  • 00:03:23.060 --> 00:03:26.130
  • You shouldn't just trip out for no reason.
  • 00:03:26.130 --> 00:03:28.060
  • Like my dad used to just trip out for no reason.
  • 00:03:28.060 --> 00:03:31.050
  • So I had to kinda and I (audience laughs)
  • 00:03:31.160 --> 00:03:34.130
  • would watch (laughs). (DeeDee laughs loudly)
  • 00:03:34.130 --> 00:03:36.000
  • - [DeeDee] Cut his Mike.
  • 00:03:36.000 --> 00:03:37.050
  • - You don't know which mike I got.
  • 00:03:38.030 --> 00:03:39.240
  • And I would notice how my mom kinda
  • 00:03:42.090 --> 00:03:46.060
  • would respond to how she would feel.
  • 00:03:46.150 --> 00:03:50.080
  • She would still show him the respect in front of us,
  • 00:03:50.080 --> 00:03:54.100
  • but I could tell it was something deeper than that.
  • 00:03:54.100 --> 00:03:56.090
  • So there's times when I don't want--
  • 00:03:56.090 --> 00:03:58.210
  • - Like what, how would you.
  • 00:03:58.210 --> 00:03:59.250
  • Cause see just--
  • 00:03:59.250 --> 00:04:01.050
  • - Awe baby we don't need to hear how you respond.
  • 00:04:01.050 --> 00:04:03.200
  • - [Joshua] And I'm a mama's boy.
  • 00:04:04.240 --> 00:04:06.080
  • So I pay attention to my mama, you know what I'm saying?
  • 00:04:06.080 --> 00:04:08.230
  • So it's like I would notice how her
  • 00:04:08.230 --> 00:04:12.080
  • body language just change.
  • 00:04:12.080 --> 00:04:14.070
  • And I don't want that to happen with my wife.
  • 00:04:14.070 --> 00:04:16.220
  • You know what I mean?
  • 00:04:16.220 --> 00:04:17.280
  • Even though we've had whatever problems.
  • 00:04:17.280 --> 00:04:19.250
  • I've spazzed she's spazzed, whatever.
  • 00:04:19.250 --> 00:04:22.260
  • It's like I still want us to be very close.
  • 00:04:23.080 --> 00:04:27.040
  • I still want us to be as good as friends
  • 00:04:27.040 --> 00:04:29.000
  • before we got married or even boyfriend and girlfriend.
  • 00:04:29.000 --> 00:04:34.000
  • Cause I mean we were good friends
  • 00:04:34.000 --> 00:04:35.210
  • way before any of this.
  • 00:04:35.210 --> 00:04:38.010
  • You know what I'm saying?
  • 00:04:38.110 --> 00:04:39.180
  • So it's like I've just had to learn from that.
  • 00:04:39.180 --> 00:04:42.200
  • Cause what I don't want in my household.
  • 00:04:42.200 --> 00:04:45.110
  • - And I just wanted to say that I think
  • 00:04:46.190 --> 00:04:49.100
  • it should be a mutual thing.
  • 00:04:49.100 --> 00:04:51.090
  • Like if I know that he's gonna trip out
  • 00:04:51.090 --> 00:04:53.180
  • with a certain thing,
  • 00:04:53.180 --> 00:04:54.240
  • just don't pay too much attention to it.
  • 00:04:54.240 --> 00:04:56.210
  • And the same for me,
  • 00:04:56.210 --> 00:04:57.270
  • because I may have an issue or whatever.
  • 00:04:57.270 --> 00:05:01.180
  • And just everybody spazzing just makes it worse.
  • 00:05:01.180 --> 00:05:04.200
  • So if I'm tripping out, just don't trip out with me.
  • 00:05:04.220 --> 00:05:07.220
  • - Yeah, and sometimes it's a. (audience laughs)
  • 00:05:07.220 --> 00:05:09.040
  • Yeah, and sometimes it's an understanding.
  • 00:05:09.120 --> 00:05:11.170
  • - [Pastor] Hey, hey, that's good word.
  • 00:05:11.170 --> 00:05:14.010
  • Turn to the person you with and tell them, say,
  • 00:05:14.010 --> 00:05:17.120
  • if I trip.
  • 00:05:17.120 --> 00:05:18.130
  • - [Audience] If I trip.
  • 00:05:18.130 --> 00:05:19.100
  • - Just don't trip with me.
  • 00:05:19.100 --> 00:05:20.230
  • - [Audience] Just don't trip with me.
  • 00:05:20.230 --> 00:05:22.040
  • - That's very good. - [Joshua] Cause it's really,
  • 00:05:22.040 --> 00:05:23.180
  • - [Joshua] an understanding - [Pastor] That's good word
  • 00:05:23.180 --> 00:05:24.280
  • - [Joshua] thing you know. - [Pastor] Keisha.
  • 00:05:24.280 --> 00:05:26.040
  • - [Joshua] You gotta understand who you with.
  • 00:05:26.040 --> 00:05:28.030
  • - How many of y'all know that's a good word?
  • 00:05:28.030 --> 00:05:30.070
  • That'll tweet right now.
  • 00:05:30.140 --> 00:05:32.030
  • Hashtag family flow.
  • 00:05:32.030 --> 00:05:34.150
  • When you trip just don't trip with me.
  • 00:05:34.280 --> 00:05:36.170
  • - [Joshua] Right, right, right.
  • 00:05:36.170 --> 00:05:38.000
  • And like I was saying, you just have to understand
  • 00:05:38.000 --> 00:05:40.010
  • your mate and who you're with.
  • 00:05:40.010 --> 00:05:41.260
  • Because like how earlier she said...
  • 00:05:41.260 --> 00:05:44.210
  • What you say, your mom.
  • 00:05:45.170 --> 00:05:47.210
  • "Well she liked him in the beginning but."
  • 00:05:47.280 --> 00:05:49.160
  • - [Keisha] No, that's what I meant.
  • 00:05:49.160 --> 00:05:50.240
  • - [Joshua] I know, I'm just saying as far as
  • 00:05:50.240 --> 00:05:53.140
  • how you have to know who you with.
  • 00:05:54.040 --> 00:05:56.170
  • Because I know how you saying it
  • 00:05:56.170 --> 00:05:58.070
  • and I know what you mean. - [Keisha] You could've taken
  • 00:05:58.070 --> 00:05:59.050
  • - [Keisha] it a different way.
  • 00:05:59.050 --> 00:06:00.140
  • - [Joshua] And I could take it a different way,
  • 00:06:00.140 --> 00:06:01.220
  • but I know you and I know how you talk.
  • 00:06:01.220 --> 00:06:03.150
  • So it's like I understand that.
  • 00:06:03.150 --> 00:06:05.130
  • I still accept it as if you said it in a sweet way.
  • 00:06:05.130 --> 00:06:08.130
  • Because I'm learning you, you know what I'm saying?
  • 00:06:08.130 --> 00:06:10.220
  • - [Audience] Awe.
  • 00:06:10.220 --> 00:06:12.070
  • - [Pastor] God dog, you get that from me right there boy.
  • 00:06:12.070 --> 00:06:14.240
  • That's what I'm saying.
  • 00:06:14.240 --> 00:06:16.070
  • Yeah that came from me.
  • 00:06:16.070 --> 00:06:17.200
  • - [Joshua] You know so baby. - [Pastor] That's my side
  • 00:06:17.200 --> 00:06:18.260
  • - [Pastor] right there.
  • 00:06:18.260 --> 00:06:20.010
  • There you go boy.
  • 00:06:20.290 --> 00:06:21.240
  • - But that's how it is.
  • 00:06:21.240 --> 00:06:24.060
  • You gotta know who you with.
  • 00:06:24.060 --> 00:06:25.220
  • Don't let em spaz out and you know they spaz out
  • 00:06:26.290 --> 00:06:30.250

  • 00:06:30.250 --> 00:06:34.180
  • as big and bad as they are.
  • 00:06:34.180 --> 00:06:36.150
  • No you have to kind of.
  • 00:06:36.150 --> 00:06:37.210
  • - [Pastor] You preaching good boy.
  • 00:06:37.210 --> 00:06:38.240

  • 00:06:38.240 --> 00:06:39.180
  • and play your part.
  • 00:06:39.180 --> 00:06:41.110
  • - [Pastor] That's the scripture in 1st Peter chapter three.
  • 00:06:42.140 --> 00:06:45.280
  • - Yeah he got the scripture I just you know.
  • 00:06:45.280 --> 00:06:48.130
  • (everyone laughs)
  • 00:06:48.130 --> 00:06:50.220
  • - You soon shall have the scripture.
  • 00:06:55.090 --> 00:06:57.270
  • - So you learn what--
  • 00:07:00.070 --> 00:07:01.210

  • 00:07:01.210 --> 00:07:04.040
  • He knows her.
  • 00:07:04.040 --> 00:07:05.170

  • - [DeeDee] I think that's great, I really do.
  • 00:07:09.000 --> 00:07:10.290
  • - He watched me enough to say "I don't wanna do that."
  • 00:07:11.060 --> 00:07:15.140
  • - [DeeDee] I think that's great.
  • 00:07:16.200 --> 00:07:17.190

  • 00:08:01.250 --> 00:08:04.070
  • He was very consistent
  • 00:08:04.130 --> 00:08:08.210
  • in how he treated my mother.
  • 00:08:08.270 --> 00:08:10.140
  • Even when things were hectic, he always remained the same.
  • 00:08:11.070 --> 00:08:15.160
  • And so I learned how to maintain,
  • 00:08:15.230 --> 00:08:19.230
  • or attempt to.
  • 00:08:20.030 --> 00:08:21.200
  • I don't always do it.
  • 00:08:21.200 --> 00:08:22.250
  • Maintain a certain posture before her.
  • 00:08:22.250 --> 00:08:24.260
  • And then respect and honor for her.
  • 00:08:24.280 --> 00:08:26.160
  • And that's one thing I did get from him.
  • 00:08:26.160 --> 00:08:28.120
  • And then watching you guys.
  • 00:08:28.120 --> 00:08:30.150
  • I just watched how you love Dr. DeeDee.
  • 00:08:31.280 --> 00:08:35.040
  • And how you treat Dr. DeeDee.
  • 00:08:35.040 --> 00:08:36.280
  • It's almost like man how do you love somebody
  • 00:08:39.000 --> 00:08:43.110
  • so much--
  • 00:08:43.110 --> 00:08:44.290
  • - [Pastor] Go ahead and talk about it man.
  • 00:08:44.290 --> 00:08:45.280
  • Let the Lord.
  • 00:08:45.280 --> 00:08:47.020
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:08:47.020 --> 00:08:48.240
  • - [Kevin] He just come with him man.
  • 00:08:55.000 --> 00:08:56.150
  • - [Pastor] We gotta make some adjustments in the will.
  • 00:08:56.150 --> 00:08:59.020
  • (everyone laughs)
  • 00:08:59.020 --> 00:09:01.100
  • - [Joshua] As long as he straight I'm good.
  • 00:09:01.250 --> 00:09:03.270
  • - I mean just in summation I've just
  • 00:09:05.210 --> 00:09:08.070
  • watched how you treat her.
  • 00:09:08.070 --> 00:09:09.170
  • How you will randomly just grab her,
  • 00:09:09.170 --> 00:09:11.190
  • love on her, kiss on her.
  • 00:09:11.270 --> 00:09:13.100
  • And that's where Brit got it from I'm convinced.
  • 00:09:13.100 --> 00:09:15.180
  • - [Pastor] She is so affectionate.
  • 00:09:15.180 --> 00:09:16.290
  • - Cause she is woo!
  • 00:09:16.290 --> 00:09:18.070
  • And I wasn't. - [Pastor] Cause her mother
  • 00:09:18.070 --> 00:09:19.190
  • - [Pastor] is not like that. - [Kevin] Okay, well.
  • 00:09:19.190 --> 00:09:20.290
  • - [DeeDee] No I wasn't.
  • 00:09:20.290 --> 00:09:21.280
  • - [Pastor] She's coming along.
  • 00:09:21.280 --> 00:09:23.130
  • - [DeeDee] Yeah I've learned - [Pastor] She's getting better.
  • 00:09:23.130 --> 00:09:24.190
  • - [DeeDee] some things, I wasn't.
  • 00:09:24.190 --> 00:09:25.290
  • All the touching - [Pastor] But Britney is
  • 00:09:25.290 --> 00:09:27.130
  • and feeling it just wasn't. - [Pastor] a lot like me.
  • 00:09:27.130 --> 00:09:28.190
  • (Pastor stutters) - [DeeDee] Didn't do it.
  • 00:09:28.190 --> 00:09:29.230
  • - [Pastor] And Brelyn doesn't show
  • 00:09:29.230 --> 00:09:31.040
  • a lot of affection, although she wants a lot of it.
  • 00:09:31.070 --> 00:09:35.140
  • She must be the center of attraction Tim.
  • 00:09:35.280 --> 00:09:39.110
  • I promise you.
  • 00:09:39.110 --> 00:09:40.160
  • And if you ever get that twisted.
  • 00:09:40.160 --> 00:09:42.250
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:09:44.070 --> 00:09:46.190
  • She's rotten.
  • 00:09:47.080 --> 00:09:49.160
  • But it's a good rotten.
  • 00:09:50.060 --> 00:09:51.100
  • - It's a good rotten.
  • 00:09:51.140 --> 00:09:52.070
  • - [Pastor] It is.
  • 00:09:52.070 --> 00:09:52.250
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:09:52.250 --> 00:09:54.000
  • - See you just laugh and giggling about
  • 00:09:54.000 --> 00:09:55.110
  • everything right now. - [Tim] No, cause it is, no.
  • 00:09:55.110 --> 00:09:56.230
  • - [Tim] To me a bad, I hope I'm not taking over.
  • 00:09:57.000 --> 00:09:59.250
  • - No, no, we can back to her.
  • 00:09:59.250 --> 00:10:01.250
  • - [Tim] But people ask me a lot.
  • 00:10:01.250 --> 00:10:03.090
  • They look at the material wealth that God
  • 00:10:03.090 --> 00:10:06.140
  • has blessed this family with and they ask me,
  • 00:10:06.140 --> 00:10:09.020
  • "Is she spoiled?"
  • 00:10:09.090 --> 00:10:10.150
  • And I say she's a good spoiled.
  • 00:10:10.250 --> 00:10:13.060
  • Because when you think of all that God
  • 00:10:13.150 --> 00:10:16.050
  • has blessed you guys with you would automatically think
  • 00:10:16.050 --> 00:10:18.070
  • that she expects to have the best things.
  • 00:10:18.070 --> 00:10:21.040
  • And if she doesn't get it she throws a tantrum
  • 00:10:21.040 --> 00:10:23.110
  • and all that kind of thing.
  • 00:10:23.110 --> 00:10:24.170
  • And Brelyn is the total opposite.
  • 00:10:24.170 --> 00:10:25.220
  • - [Pastor] Absolutely.
  • 00:10:25.220 --> 00:10:26.130
  • She's a grinder,
  • 00:10:26.130 --> 00:10:27.190
  • she works with me. - [DeeDee] That's true.
  • 00:10:27.190 --> 00:10:28.260
  • - [Tim] It's about us together going
  • 00:10:28.260 --> 00:10:31.130
  • to a destination together.
  • 00:10:31.130 --> 00:10:33.190
  • It doesn't matter about if we have to struggle.
  • 00:10:33.190 --> 00:10:35.140
  • Like Brelyn is the kind of person if we have to eat
  • 00:10:35.140 --> 00:10:38.230
  • Mcdonald's and we have to do this kind of thing,
  • 00:10:39.210 --> 00:10:41.180
  • Brelyn will do it with me.
  • 00:10:41.180 --> 00:10:42.280
  • She'll hold me up, she'll lift me up,
  • 00:10:42.280 --> 00:10:44.160
  • and that's one thing I really love about her.
  • 00:10:44.160 --> 00:10:46.080
  • (audience applauds)
  • 00:10:46.080 --> 00:10:48.250
  • She's spoiled though. - [Brelyn] But that's me.
  • 00:10:50.080 --> 00:10:51.220
  • - [Tim] She love attention, but it's the good attention.
  • 00:10:51.220 --> 00:10:53.170
  • I mean the good spoiled.
  • 00:10:53.290 --> 00:10:55.110
  • - They both similar in that regard cause Britney
  • 00:10:55.110 --> 00:10:58.050
  • is really kind of the exact same.
  • 00:10:58.050 --> 00:11:00.160
  • Cause coming into it, I looked at.
  • 00:11:00.160 --> 00:11:03.070
  • I'll never forget when I got to the house.
  • 00:11:03.070 --> 00:11:04.160
  • I was sitting there like, "Slim."
  • 00:11:04.160 --> 00:11:06.110
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:11:06.110 --> 00:11:08.220
  • I said, "You live here?!"
  • 00:11:11.220 --> 00:11:13.060
  • I had never seen a house that big in real life.
  • 00:11:15.000 --> 00:11:18.160
  • I mean gates and everything.
  • 00:11:22.090 --> 00:11:23.150
  • I was like oh this is a movie.
  • 00:11:23.150 --> 00:11:25.250
  • And so you know I met her I'm like God
  • 00:11:27.010 --> 00:11:28.260
  • I don't come from this, you know what I'm saying?
  • 00:11:28.260 --> 00:11:31.200
  • And so I was intimidated.
  • 00:11:31.200 --> 00:11:34.050
  • But Britney, you guys did a very very good job
  • 00:11:34.140 --> 00:11:37.170
  • in raising the both of them. - [Pastor] That was her mother.
  • 00:11:37.170 --> 00:11:40.080
  • - [Kevin] I mean spoiled but they just know
  • 00:11:40.080 --> 00:11:44.190
  • what they are supposed to have.
  • 00:11:44.190 --> 00:11:47.180
  • And they don't accept anything less,
  • 00:11:47.180 --> 00:11:49.140
  • but they ride with you.
  • 00:11:49.140 --> 00:11:51.210
  • You know?
  • 00:11:52.150 --> 00:11:53.130
  • It's like the ride or die chick.
  • 00:11:53.130 --> 00:11:54.250
  • It's like Tim said, we know where we going in life
  • 00:11:56.000 --> 00:11:58.000
  • and however we have to get there together--
  • 00:11:58.000 --> 00:12:00.110
  • - That's what I'm talking about.
  • 00:12:00.110 --> 00:12:01.190
  • However you gotta get to where God
  • 00:12:01.190 --> 00:12:05.010
  • has called you to get together.
  • 00:12:05.010 --> 00:12:07.180
  • You can do it!
  • 00:12:07.180 --> 00:12:11.010
  • You can get to where.
  • 00:12:11.060 --> 00:12:12.170
  • Ooh, turn to the girl you with
  • 00:12:12.170 --> 00:12:14.220
  • and say baby we going places together
  • 00:12:14.220 --> 00:12:16.240
  • We going places.
  • 00:12:16.240 --> 00:12:18.100
  • Come on tell em!
  • 00:12:18.220 --> 00:12:19.190
  • And where you gotta get to,
  • 00:12:19.210 --> 00:12:23.010
  • you can get to together.
  • 00:12:23.060 --> 00:12:25.000
  • Come on turn to her and tell her.
  • 00:12:25.000 --> 00:12:27.110
  • Call her by name.
  • 00:12:27.110 --> 00:12:28.170
  • It's DeeDee and I against the world.
  • 00:12:28.170 --> 00:12:30.180
  • Go ahead.
  • 00:12:30.180 --> 00:12:31.230
  • (audience responds)
  • 00:12:31.230 --> 00:12:33.190
  • That's good stuff Kevin.
  • 00:12:35.050 --> 00:12:36.210
  • - [Kevin] And I know it's just a little bit off subject,
  • 00:12:38.000 --> 00:12:39.110
  • that's not what you guys asked of us
  • 00:12:39.110 --> 00:12:41.010
  • but I just had to piggyback off of that.
  • 00:12:41.010 --> 00:12:43.140
  • Because that is in my estimation great parenthood
  • 00:12:43.140 --> 00:12:48.030
  • and great raising of children.
  • 00:12:48.030 --> 00:12:49.170
  • And watching you, this may be the most important thing
  • 00:12:49.170 --> 00:12:53.160
  • and it's not necessarily marriage related.
  • 00:12:53.160 --> 00:12:56.000
  • I watched how you have raised your children
  • 00:12:56.280 --> 00:12:59.180
  • and I want to emulate that.
  • 00:13:00.110 --> 00:13:02.170
  • I want my daughters to look at a man and say
  • 00:13:02.250 --> 00:13:06.240
  • "You want to become better than that."
  • 00:13:06.240 --> 00:13:08.100
  • "You gonna have to try better than that.
  • 00:13:09.150 --> 00:13:11.090
  • "Cause everything you're trying to give me
  • 00:13:11.190 --> 00:13:13.010
  • "my daddy has done that for me.
  • 00:13:13.010 --> 00:13:15.010
  • "My daddy gives that to me.
  • 00:13:15.280 --> 00:13:17.230
  • "You can't throw this artificial love at me.
  • 00:13:18.110 --> 00:13:20.240
  • "You can't throw this materialistic love at me.
  • 00:13:20.260 --> 00:13:23.150
  • "It does not do anything for me because I am fulfilled
  • 00:13:23.150 --> 00:13:26.220
  • "and I love my daddy at home."
  • 00:13:26.220 --> 00:13:28.240
  • So it's gonna have to be genuine when you step to me
  • 00:13:28.240 --> 00:13:31.140
  • and that's what you have here with them.
  • 00:13:31.140 --> 00:13:35.040
  • And so that is priceless in my estimation.
  • 00:13:35.040 --> 00:13:38.110
  • So thank you for that.
  • 00:13:38.110 --> 00:13:40.230
  • (audience applauds)
  • 00:13:41.230 --> 00:13:43.270
  • - [Pastor] Come on Brit.
  • 00:13:43.270 --> 00:13:45.020
  • You love him don't you.
  • 00:13:46.210 --> 00:13:48.050
  • I love him, you love him?
  • 00:13:49.060 --> 00:13:51.250
  • You don't love. - [DeeDee] You don't love God.
  • 00:13:51.250 --> 00:13:54.030
  • - Let's see, okay the biggest thing that I have learned
  • 00:13:58.040 --> 00:14:01.260
  • is at the end of the day we fight
  • 00:14:02.230 --> 00:14:06.040
  • for each other, we fight for, - [Pastor] I love it, I love it.
  • 00:14:07.100 --> 00:14:10.150
  • - [Brit] you know our happiness,
  • 00:14:10.150 --> 00:14:11.220
  • we fight for our togetherness, we fight.
  • 00:14:11.220 --> 00:14:14.220
  • - And so it's like. - [Pastor] We fight, we fight.
  • 00:14:15.060 --> 00:14:16.220
  • - [Pastor] Come on turn to the person you're here with.
  • 00:14:16.220 --> 00:14:18.290
  • Say we fight together.
  • 00:14:18.290 --> 00:14:20.190
  • - [Audience] We fight together.
  • 00:14:20.190 --> 00:14:21.190
  • - Not against one another.
  • 00:14:21.190 --> 00:14:23.000
  • - [Audience] Not against one another.
  • 00:14:23.000 --> 00:14:24.050
  • - But together.
  • 00:14:24.050 --> 00:14:25.030
  • - [Audience] But together.
  • 00:14:25.030 --> 00:14:26.010
  • - We fight, we fight, we fight.
  • 00:14:26.010 --> 00:14:28.020
  • Fight the good fight of faith.
  • 00:14:28.020 --> 00:14:30.130
  • - Yeah, cause it's like we've been through,
  • 00:14:31.180 --> 00:14:34.160
  • we've been through a lot of different things.
  • 00:14:35.230 --> 00:14:38.030
  • And it's almost kinda like how Tim said,
  • 00:14:38.030 --> 00:14:41.200
  • your parents teach you a certain way
  • 00:14:41.270 --> 00:14:44.170
  • and then when you're gone they're not telling
  • 00:14:44.170 --> 00:14:46.200
  • you what to do but it's like they are
  • 00:14:46.200 --> 00:14:48.080
  • telling you what to do.
  • 00:14:48.080 --> 00:14:49.210
  • I think you guys really don't have to say much anymore
  • 00:14:49.210 --> 00:14:52.180
  • because you weigh so heavy in our lives
  • 00:14:52.180 --> 00:14:55.190
  • and then even listening to you in here.
  • 00:14:55.190 --> 00:14:58.110
  • It's not a lot that we have to share because
  • 00:14:58.200 --> 00:15:01.190
  • you've already taught us so it's already in us.
  • 00:15:02.000 --> 00:15:04.000
  • So we have fought through different things.
  • 00:15:04.000 --> 00:15:06.270
  • And then also that
  • 00:15:06.270 --> 00:15:10.230
  • he's not the source of my happiness.
  • 00:15:11.160 --> 00:15:13.190
  • - [Pastor] Come on.
  • 00:15:14.000 --> 00:15:15.120
  • - So when I realized that, it really helped us to
  • 00:15:15.170 --> 00:15:20.100
  • flow a lot better.
  • 00:15:20.270 --> 00:15:23.000
  • It was kinda like stop depending on him
  • 00:15:23.000 --> 00:15:25.280
  • to make me happy.
  • 00:15:25.280 --> 00:15:27.130
  • You know, he should be - [Pastor] Wow, wow,
  • 00:15:27.260 --> 00:15:30.270
  • it was like, - [Pastor] that's powerful.

  • and now to receive, like it...
  • 00:17:27.100 --> 00:17:30.290
  • They're doing really well now.
  • 00:17:32.140 --> 00:17:34.170
  • - [Pastor] I love it, I love it.
  • 00:17:35.040 --> 00:17:36.170
  • I appreciate your not calling them out.
  • 00:17:36.170 --> 00:17:38.160
  • - Yeah, no yeah I don't wanna call--
  • 00:17:38.160 --> 00:17:39.280

  • 00:17:42.230 --> 00:17:45.030
  • - [Audience] Hey can I let you in on something?
  • 00:17:45.030 --> 00:17:47.050
  • - Somebody is watching us.
  • 00:17:47.050 --> 00:17:52.050
  • Brelyn?
  • 00:17:56.070 --> 00:17:57.140
  • - Well mines kind of a piggyback off of Britney
  • 00:17:57.280 --> 00:18:01.040
  • was you all fight for each other,
  • 00:18:01.040 --> 00:18:03.060
  • you fight for your relationship,
  • 00:18:03.060 --> 00:18:05.120
  • but more so if you did get in an argument
  • 00:18:05.180 --> 00:18:08.100
  • you wouldn't be mad for a long time.
  • 00:18:08.100 --> 00:18:10.270
  • Even if you wanted to be mad, mommy will come over to you
  • 00:18:10.270 --> 00:18:14.010
  • or you would go over to mommy.
  • 00:18:14.010 --> 00:18:16.030
  • You know and be like--
  • 00:18:16.030 --> 00:18:17.080
  • - [Pastor] I would go over to her?
  • 00:18:17.080 --> 00:18:17.240
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:18:17.240 --> 00:18:18.210
  • - [Pastor] In most cases.
  • 00:18:18.210 --> 00:18:19.110
  • - Vice versa.
  • 00:18:19.240 --> 00:18:21.190
  • You know but not to really help.
  • 00:18:22.040 --> 00:18:23.260
  • Because I can be hard headed.
  • 00:18:23.260 --> 00:18:25.040
  • Like "Oh you don't wanna talk to me okay, cool."
  • 00:18:25.040 --> 00:18:28.050
  • I talk to somebody else for a minute.
  • 00:18:29.130 --> 00:18:31.040
  • But I had to really, and I'm still learning.
  • 00:18:31.100 --> 00:18:34.080
  • But I had to really come out of that
  • 00:18:34.080 --> 00:18:36.150
  • and to really communicate about
  • 00:18:36.150 --> 00:18:39.060
  • you know, what the problem was and to not be mad.
  • 00:18:39.060 --> 00:18:41.090
  • Cause I like to be happy.
  • 00:18:41.090 --> 00:18:42.090
  • I don't like to be mad.
  • 00:18:42.090 --> 00:18:44.160
  • So I've learned to not really hold things
  • 00:18:44.160 --> 00:18:46.290
  • until next week or hold things until the next day.
  • 00:18:47.040 --> 00:18:50.240
  • Because life is not promised.
  • 00:18:50.240 --> 00:18:52.020
  • And even here recently with the attack
  • 00:18:52.020 --> 00:18:54.070
  • we've experienced as a family.
  • 00:18:54.070 --> 00:18:56.240
  • Lord he loves her and she loves him.
  • 00:19:00.130 --> 00:19:03.270
  • But we've been going outside the other street
  • 00:19:03.270 --> 00:19:06.130
  • to the mailbox and he like "Baby, where you at?
  • 00:19:06.130 --> 00:19:09.280
  • "When you coming home?"
  • 00:19:10.020 --> 00:19:11.130
  • Like that, she just outside, she just outside.
  • 00:19:11.130 --> 00:19:14.180
  • Give her a break.
  • 00:19:14.180 --> 00:19:15.220
  • You know, and still even the way.
  • 00:19:15.220 --> 00:19:18.200
  • Number two is even the way she serves him
  • 00:19:19.020 --> 00:19:21.060
  • and how even if she may not feel like it
  • 00:19:21.060 --> 00:19:24.000
  • she'll still serve.
  • 00:19:24.000 --> 00:19:25.170
  • I mean like, "Give me some popcorn.
  • 00:19:26.060 --> 00:19:30.190
  • "Can you get the seasoning to go to the popcorn?
  • 00:19:31.020 --> 00:19:33.120
  • "Can you cut my salad?
  • 00:19:34.000 --> 00:19:35.070
  • "Ooh baby I think I want a turkey sandwich."
  • 00:19:35.070 --> 00:19:37.180
  • And she "Okay, cool.
  • 00:19:38.050 --> 00:19:39.230
  • "You really want that, okay."
  • 00:19:39.230 --> 00:19:41.080
  • And she'll go and do it.
  • 00:19:41.080 --> 00:19:42.180
  • And even if she doesn't feel like it,
  • 00:19:42.180 --> 00:19:44.090
  • she'll still serve him and still honor him.
  • 00:19:44.090 --> 00:19:46.140
  • It's funny, real quick.
  • 00:19:46.140 --> 00:19:47.170
  • (Brelyn laughs)
  • 00:19:47.170 --> 00:19:49.100
  • (Britney mumbles)
  • 00:19:49.100 --> 00:19:50.220
  • What.
  • 00:19:50.220 --> 00:19:51.260
  • Oh no, no, no, I wasn't gonna say it.
  • 00:19:52.190 --> 00:19:54.090
  • I can't say that.
  • 00:19:54.090 --> 00:19:55.230
  • But Sunday he was at the house and he wanted some crabs.
  • 00:19:55.230 --> 00:19:59.120
  • - [Pastor] Who?
  • 00:19:59.120 --> 00:20:00.070
  • - Tim.
  • 00:20:00.070 --> 00:20:00.270
  • - [Pastor] Oh.
  • 00:20:00.270 --> 00:20:02.050
  • - And he said "Hey, can you get me some crabs?"
  • 00:20:02.050 --> 00:20:04.090
  • So I said "Okay cool."
  • 00:20:04.090 --> 00:20:05.090
  • So I pulled the bag out.
  • 00:20:05.090 --> 00:20:06.240
  • He said "Can you make that sauce like your mother?"
  • 00:20:06.240 --> 00:20:10.020
  • I'm like ugh.
  • 00:20:10.230 --> 00:20:11.280
  • "Can you get me something to drink?
  • 00:20:12.090 --> 00:20:14.060
  • "Can you get me a bag?
  • 00:20:15.110 --> 00:20:17.020
  • "I need a napkin.
  • 00:20:17.170 --> 00:20:19.000
  • "Can you get me some more ice?
  • 00:20:19.000 --> 00:20:20.200
  • "And I said "Hey look, it's too much.
  • 00:20:20.200 --> 00:20:22.240
  • "I'm not DeeDee yet, I'm not DeeDee yet.
  • 00:20:22.240 --> 00:20:25.170
  • "Okay, calm down.
  • 00:20:26.030 --> 00:20:27.290
  • "Stop asking."
  • 00:20:27.290 --> 00:20:28.280
  • - I'm just going by what I see.
  • 00:20:28.280 --> 00:20:30.000
  • I'm just going by what I see.
  • 00:20:30.000 --> 00:20:31.060
  • - Stop it!
  • 00:20:31.060 --> 00:20:32.220
  • Stop calling my name!
  • 00:20:32.220 --> 00:20:34.240
  • (Brelyn laughs)
  • 00:20:34.240 --> 00:20:36.210
  • So I'm learning to serve with a loving heart
  • 00:20:36.210 --> 00:20:40.280
  • and a giving heart.
  • 00:20:40.280 --> 00:20:42.030
  • Because I do honor him.
  • 00:20:42.030 --> 00:20:43.200
  • And I'm trying to follow my mother,
  • 00:20:43.200 --> 00:20:45.120
  • but it's so hard.
  • 00:20:45.120 --> 00:20:47.050
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:20:47.050 --> 00:20:49.080
  • - [Pastor] Anything Tim?
  • 00:20:55.000 --> 00:20:56.030
  • - Yeah, I'll be real brief.
  • 00:20:56.030 --> 00:20:57.160
  • Mine's is more from a natural standpoint.
  • 00:20:57.160 --> 00:21:00.080
  • I learned a lot of the things but I wanted to say something
  • 00:21:01.080 --> 00:21:04.150
  • that you guys hadn't said.
  • 00:21:04.150 --> 00:21:05.290
  • The importance of as a unit, setting goals in life.
  • 00:21:06.120 --> 00:21:10.070
  • And together going about obtaining those goals.
  • 00:21:10.070 --> 00:21:14.010
  • I was able to see my mother since my birth
  • 00:21:14.120 --> 00:21:19.010
  • not before, get her Bachelor's, get her Master's,
  • 00:21:19.010 --> 00:21:22.240
  • and do all this accounting work
  • 00:21:22.240 --> 00:21:24.190
  • and become a VP of a company.
  • 00:21:24.190 --> 00:21:26.090
  • Then my dad travel every weekend and do all these things.
  • 00:21:26.090 --> 00:21:29.170
  • And they both are individuals within their relationship
  • 00:21:29.170 --> 00:21:32.240
  • and I used to walk in the bedroom at night
  • 00:21:32.240 --> 00:21:35.080
  • and they be planning for the future.
  • 00:21:35.080 --> 00:21:37.000
  • We need to do this, we need to do this,
  • 00:21:37.000 --> 00:21:38.160
  • and we need to do this.
  • 00:21:38.160 --> 00:21:39.280
  • What's the next step to reach their goals naturally?
  • 00:21:39.280 --> 00:21:43.000
  • They got together and they went out and implemented
  • 00:21:43.100 --> 00:21:47.070
  • what they both decided to do together.
  • 00:21:47.070 --> 00:21:49.170
  • And that is my plan with Brelyn.
  • 00:21:49.170 --> 00:21:51.170
  • We're gonna go out and be ambitious
  • 00:21:51.170 --> 00:21:53.100
  • and take over the world.
  • 00:21:53.100 --> 00:21:54.110
  • (audience applauds)
  • 00:21:54.110 --> 00:21:57.080
  • - You love him don't you?
  • 00:21:59.040 --> 00:22:00.150
  • - [Pastor] I love Mr. Bowman.
  • 00:22:00.150 --> 00:22:02.100
  • - Me too.
  • 00:22:02.100 --> 00:22:03.030
  • - I love Mr Bowman.
  • 00:22:03.030 --> 00:22:04.170
  • Are there any questions you all may have of us as a family?
  • 00:22:04.170 --> 00:22:07.290
  • And I don't know, it's my prayer that

  • out of this time with us.
  • 00:22:15.160 --> 00:22:17.100
  • But now if you have any questions,
  • 00:22:18.000 --> 00:22:19.220
  • would you come at this particular time.
  • 00:22:19.220 --> 00:22:22.080
  • I think they have microphones right there.
  • 00:22:22.080 --> 00:22:24.120
  • We'll take a few minutes to address
  • 00:22:24.120 --> 00:22:28.070
  • some of the questions that you may have
  • 00:22:28.240 --> 00:22:31.140
  • that will assist you in your relationships.
  • 00:22:32.110 --> 00:22:34.290
  • Yes sir.
  • 00:22:35.100 --> 00:22:36.160
  • - [Male] Good evening sir, this is more
  • 00:22:38.010 --> 00:22:39.200
  • of a comment than a question.
  • 00:22:39.200 --> 00:22:40.290
  • You addressed something about the blended family
  • 00:22:40.290 --> 00:22:42.240
  • and it's been like on me since you said it.
  • 00:22:42.240 --> 00:22:45.010
  • - [Pastor] Okay.
  • 00:22:45.010 --> 00:22:46.080
  • - [Male] I married a woman with four kids.
  • 00:22:46.100 --> 00:22:48.080
  • - [Pastor] With four kids?
  • 00:22:48.150 --> 00:22:50.000
  • - Right, before me there was four kids and stuff and stuff.
  • 00:22:50.000 --> 00:22:53.050
  • And I got specific instructions
  • 00:22:53.050 --> 00:22:55.100
  • on what to do and when to do it.
  • 00:22:55.100 --> 00:22:57.140
  • And it has made us like the "Brady Bunch" kinda sorta.
  • 00:22:57.200 --> 00:23:01.290
  • Like it's real cool, freaky, whatever.
  • 00:23:01.290 --> 00:23:04.250
  • Like I was overseas during a portion of our courtship.
  • 00:23:04.250 --> 00:23:09.070
  • - [Pastor] Yeah.
  • 00:23:09.070 --> 00:23:10.010
  • - And I would Skype her,
  • 00:23:10.010 --> 00:23:11.160
  • but I couldn't Skype her without talking to them.
  • 00:23:11.160 --> 00:23:14.140
  • So I insisted on "Okay cool, well let me talk to them.
  • 00:23:14.140 --> 00:23:17.240
  • "Let me do this."
  • 00:23:17.270 --> 00:23:19.050
  • And one of the kids is a teacher like by nature.
  • 00:23:19.050 --> 00:23:22.230
  • That's her thing, that's what she does.
  • 00:23:22.230 --> 00:23:24.250
  • So this girl would read me like "The Three Little Pigs."
  • 00:23:25.030 --> 00:23:27.120
  • And it's 2 o'clock in the morning overseas.
  • 00:23:27.120 --> 00:23:30.090
  • Sandstorms and all the rest of this good stuff.
  • 00:23:30.090 --> 00:23:32.040
  • I'm on Skype trying not to fall asleep.
  • 00:23:32.040 --> 00:23:34.190
  • Paying attention knowing that I gotta get up
  • 00:23:34.190 --> 00:23:36.220
  • at 6 o'clock in the morning.
  • 00:23:36.220 --> 00:23:38.050
  • But we doing this and she would ask me questions,
  • 00:23:38.120 --> 00:23:40.170
  • "Well which house didn't get blown down?"
  • 00:23:40.170 --> 00:23:43.110
  • And I would have to do it because--
  • 00:23:43.110 --> 00:23:45.220
  • - [Pastor] So that was a part of your strategy
  • 00:23:45.220 --> 00:23:47.140
  • and getting to know. - [Male] Yes sir.
  • 00:23:47.140 --> 00:23:48.280
  • - [Male] Because Holy Spirit said that I am the gate.
  • 00:23:48.280 --> 00:23:52.180
  • And if they can receive me not knowing me
  • 00:23:53.070 --> 00:23:57.170
  • then they will be able to receive them
  • 00:23:57.170 --> 00:23:59.250
  • not knowing them initially.
  • 00:23:59.250 --> 00:24:02.170
  • So if I come into their life
  • 00:24:02.170 --> 00:24:04.140
  • and I'm someone that's different,
  • 00:24:04.140 --> 00:24:06.050
  • but I am a representative of God.
  • 00:24:06.050 --> 00:24:08.130
  • If I misrepresent Him then it'll be more difficult
  • 00:24:08.130 --> 00:24:11.290
  • for them to receive Him
  • 00:24:11.290 --> 00:24:13.200
  • because they didn't know Him at first either.
  • 00:24:13.200 --> 00:24:15.220
  • So I was--
  • 00:24:16.210 --> 00:24:18.010
  • - Okay, I believe I understood all of that.
  • 00:24:18.010 --> 00:24:19.230
  • - [DeeDee] Mmm hmm, I got that.
  • 00:24:19.230 --> 00:24:20.250
  • - It's a great point.
  • 00:24:20.250 --> 00:24:22.040
