  • Because they did it right, they did it
  • 00:02:03.280 --> 00:02:06.150

  • 00:02:06.150 --> 00:02:08.170
  • we want to command the attention of the world.
  • 00:02:08.170 --> 00:02:12.120
  • - Our phones blew up! - Boop boop boop boop
  • 00:02:16.160 --> 00:02:18.290
  • And we just looked at each other.
  • 00:02:18.290 --> 00:02:20.180
  • - We want youth from all over to see the blessing of God
  • 00:02:20.180 --> 00:02:24.020
  • on their lives and how God has to honor them
  • 00:02:24.020 --> 00:02:26.290
  • as they've honored Him, we want to pray for the ministry
  • 00:02:26.290 --> 00:02:31.240
  • that's on their life, that God will lift it up
  • 00:02:31.240 --> 00:02:35.080
  • as a trophy in his hand to show this is what I'll do
  • 00:02:35.080 --> 00:02:39.270
  • when you do it right, we decree and declare it
  • 00:02:39.270 --> 00:02:44.110
  • out of their bellies shall flow rivers
  • 00:02:44.110 --> 00:02:47.140
  • of life giving water, to every stale and stagnated
  • 00:02:49.050 --> 00:02:53.040
  • place that they'll go into when they open their mouth
  • 00:02:53.040 --> 00:02:56.030
  • to minister, the refreshing of the Lord shall fall afresh
  • 00:02:56.030 --> 00:02:59.270
  • on all that will hear their ministry.
  • 00:02:59.270 --> 00:03:03.180
  • And just like Saul said for David, I decree and declare
  • 00:03:03.180 --> 00:03:06.210
  • that invitations are coming and they will come
  • 00:03:06.210 --> 00:03:10.160
  • and represent the sound of the Lord.
  • 00:03:15.080 --> 00:03:17.230
  • And we're thinking they shall be received and
  • 00:03:17.230 --> 00:03:20.070
  • they shall be heard and bondage shall be destroyed
  • 00:03:20.070 --> 00:03:24.120

  • If you agree with this, say Amen. Hallelujah, glory be.
  • 00:03:30.120 --> 00:03:34.170
  • And without further ado, hashtag.
  • 00:03:40.200 --> 00:03:44.110
  • - [Both] Meet the Bowman's.
  • 00:03:44.110 --> 00:03:46.240
  • - [DeeDee and Bri] Hey. - [Mike] Guys.
  • 00:03:46.240 --> 00:03:49.080
  • - [Mike] What's happening?
  • 00:03:49.080 --> 00:03:50.260
  • Mr. and Mrs. Bowman.
  • 00:03:50.260 --> 00:03:53.010
  • - Yes.
  • 00:03:53.010 --> 00:03:54.080
  • - That's something, I'm first of all
  • 00:03:54.080 --> 00:03:55.090
  • getting adjusted to.
  • 00:03:55.090 --> 00:03:56.110
  • Are you adjusting to?
  • 00:03:56.110 --> 00:03:57.170
  • - I am too.
  • 00:03:57.170 --> 00:03:58.170
  • - You are, 'cause I am too.
  • 00:03:58.170 --> 00:04:01.030
  • I am too, but I'm so excited so.
  • 00:04:01.030 --> 00:04:03.190
  • - This story is an exciting story.
  • 00:04:03.190 --> 00:04:06.040
  • I'm really.
  • 00:04:06.040 --> 00:04:10.010
  • It's a surreal kind of deal you know,
  • 00:04:11.020 --> 00:04:14.210
  • at age 13 you decide
  • 00:04:14.210 --> 00:04:18.260
  • to take me up on something
  • 00:04:19.250 --> 00:04:23.060
  • that I've proposed and presented to you
  • 00:04:23.060 --> 00:04:25.200
  • as I've done, of course,
  • 00:04:25.200 --> 00:04:27.130
  • with your sister.
  • 00:04:27.130 --> 00:04:29.140
  • You watched that whole episode.
  • 00:04:29.140 --> 00:04:31.160
  • Then you had an opportunity to watch her life.
  • 00:04:32.180 --> 00:04:35.130
  • Now you're 13,
  • 00:04:36.170 --> 00:04:38.130
  • and you signed the covenant commitment.
  • 00:04:38.130 --> 00:04:42.140
  • - Right.
  • 00:04:42.140 --> 00:04:43.180
  • - What are your thoughts like back then?
  • 00:04:43.180 --> 00:04:45.270
  • Let's try to go back.
  • 00:04:45.270 --> 00:04:47.110
  • - Well it's funny that you ask
  • 00:04:47.110 --> 00:04:49.030
  • because I found a paper of a speech
  • 00:04:49.030 --> 00:04:51.260
  • that I wrote before I actually signed the paper
  • 00:04:51.260 --> 00:04:54.120
  • at my 13th birthday party.
  • 00:04:54.120 --> 00:04:56.150
  • I said, "I'm not just doing this out of formality
  • 00:04:56.150 --> 00:04:59.090
  • "or just because I saw it."
  • 00:04:59.090 --> 00:05:01.180
  • But because this is a decision
  • 00:05:01.180 --> 00:05:03.140
  • that I wanted to make for my own self.
  • 00:05:03.140 --> 00:05:05.200
  • - Wait a minute, make sure I'm clear.
  • 00:05:05.200 --> 00:05:07.060
  • You wrote yourself a letter?
  • 00:05:07.060 --> 00:05:09.000
  • - No, I was making a speech at the covenant ceremony.
  • 00:05:09.000 --> 00:05:12.070
  • - Oh you went back to review.
  • 00:05:12.070 --> 00:05:14.020
  • - Right I went back over it.
  • 00:05:14.020 --> 00:05:15.090
  • - The video footage.
  • 00:05:15.090 --> 00:05:16.040
  • I haven't seen that.
  • 00:05:16.040 --> 00:05:17.210
  • - Yeah, it was a paper we kept.
  • 00:05:17.210 --> 00:05:19.140
  • - Yeah, I keep all of those kind of papers.
  • 00:05:19.140 --> 00:05:21.230
  • I'm real sentimental.
  • 00:05:21.230 --> 00:05:23.160
  • - So to see that now when I'm married
  • 00:05:23.160 --> 00:05:27.040
  • to go back to 13 and say,
  • 00:05:27.040 --> 00:05:28.180
  • "Okay, yeah, it was something that was
  • 00:05:28.180 --> 00:05:30.100
  • "really in my heart that I wanted to do."
  • 00:05:30.100 --> 00:05:32.110
  • And not just because my sister did it.
  • 00:05:32.110 --> 00:05:34.020
  • Or because my father said do it,
  • 00:05:34.020 --> 00:05:35.230
  • but because something I knew that God commanded us to do.
  • 00:05:35.230 --> 00:05:39.090
  • - Well certainly your sister helped you.
  • 00:05:39.090 --> 00:05:41.020
  • - Absolutely, absolutely.
  • 00:05:41.020 --> 00:05:42.190
  • - In wanting to see the same thing.
  • 00:05:42.190 --> 00:05:45.080
  • First of all, let's back up.
  • 00:05:45.080 --> 00:05:47.140
  • Let's back up.
  • 00:05:47.140 --> 00:05:49.010
  • How did you feel at her wedding day
  • 00:05:49.010 --> 00:05:52.240
  • when she presented that?
  • 00:05:52.240 --> 00:05:55.050
  • 'Cause at that particular time
  • 00:05:55.050 --> 00:05:57.110
  • you're much further along in the process,
  • 00:05:57.110 --> 00:05:59.260
  • you've made the commitment for a few years now.
  • 00:05:59.260 --> 00:06:03.030
  • She hands a certificate to me.
  • 00:06:03.030 --> 00:06:05.170
  • That doesn't go and do anything near
  • 00:06:05.170 --> 00:06:08.180
  • the response you all--
  • 00:06:08.180 --> 00:06:10.160
  • - Well it did for me.
  • 00:06:10.160 --> 00:06:11.270
  • - Ha ya ya ya ya ya ya.
  • 00:06:11.270 --> 00:06:13.200
  • - It did for me, it gave me a second wind.
  • 00:06:13.200 --> 00:06:16.230
  • You know, in the sense of really say,
  • 00:06:16.230 --> 00:06:18.240
  • okay if she did it, she made it to the finish line,
  • 00:06:18.240 --> 00:06:21.050
  • there's no way I cannot do it.
  • 00:06:21.050 --> 00:06:24.080
  • So for me it went viral in my life.
  • 00:06:24.080 --> 00:06:27.150
  • You know, so that's - [DeeDee] That's good.
  • 00:06:27.150 --> 00:06:29.020
  • what I love the most about it. - [Mike] Chaka Khan.
  • 00:06:29.020 --> 00:06:30.160
  • - [Bre] Because now my life, - [Mike] My, my, my, my
  • 00:06:30.160 --> 00:06:31.250
  • can be an example - [Mike] that's good.
  • 00:06:31.250 --> 00:06:33.150
  • - [Bre] just as hers was to me.
  • 00:06:33.150 --> 00:06:35.100
  • - Yeah, and so if we had more
  • 00:06:35.100 --> 00:06:38.120
  • big sisters participating in that capacity.
  • 00:06:38.120 --> 00:06:42.200
  • Imagine the impact.
  • 00:06:42.200 --> 00:06:44.240
  • You compare that with something
  • 00:06:44.240 --> 00:06:47.100
  • so magnificent and massive.
  • 00:06:47.100 --> 00:06:50.270
  • It went viral in your spirit.
  • 00:06:50.270 --> 00:06:53.190
  • The same capacity that it took on
  • 00:06:53.190 --> 00:06:57.000
  • in the earth, it happened in your spirit.
  • 00:06:57.000 --> 00:07:01.050
  • - [Bre] Absolutely.
  • 00:07:01.050 --> 00:07:02.100
  • - Now well your husband is here.
  • 00:07:02.100 --> 00:07:04.150
  • You know, we can't prove that, you understand?
  • 00:07:04.150 --> 00:07:08.130
  • We're gonna put him on the Maury show
  • 00:07:08.130 --> 00:07:11.010
  • and hook him up to a lie detector or something.
  • 00:07:11.010 --> 00:07:14.140
  • Ladies and gentlemen, Tim Bowman.
  • 00:07:14.140 --> 00:07:16.260
  • Tim Bowman Junior. - [Tim] Junior.
  • 00:07:17.270 --> 00:07:20.020
  • - I love your family.
  • 00:07:20.020 --> 00:07:22.260
  • I love you.
  • 00:07:22.260 --> 00:07:24.150
  • I'm just grateful to God
  • 00:07:25.240 --> 00:07:27.110
  • about this whole thing.
  • 00:07:27.110 --> 00:07:29.100
  • This whole connection.
  • 00:07:29.100 --> 00:07:31.020
  • We, DeeDee and I,
  • 00:07:31.020 --> 00:07:33.140
  • since this girl was
  • 00:07:33.140 --> 00:07:36.050
  • two, three years old.
  • 00:07:37.020 --> 00:07:38.250
  • Put on our board, praying for her husband.
  • 00:07:38.250 --> 00:07:43.000
  • We had no idea,
  • 00:07:43.000 --> 00:07:44.260
  • that it would be a funny looking cat.
  • 00:07:45.250 --> 00:07:47.180
  • (everyone laughs)
  • 00:07:47.180 --> 00:07:49.040
  • - With so much swag.
  • 00:07:49.040 --> 00:07:50.070
  • - With so much swag.
  • 00:07:50.070 --> 00:07:51.260
  • So in the interim now,
  • 00:07:53.060 --> 00:07:54.210
  • you are making a personal
  • 00:07:54.210 --> 00:07:57.010
  • commitment yourself with God.
  • 00:07:57.010 --> 00:07:59.160
  • - Absolutely.
  • 00:07:59.160 --> 00:08:00.180
  • - Tell us about your story.
  • 00:08:00.180 --> 00:08:02.080
  • - Mines is a little less glamorous
  • 00:08:02.080 --> 00:08:04.170
  • than my beautiful wife's. - [Mike] Okay, alright.
  • 00:08:04.170 --> 00:08:06.080
  • - [Tim] But it is a commitment and a covenant nonetheless.
  • 00:08:06.080 --> 00:08:09.010
  • Basically, I didn't make one with my parents.
  • 00:08:09.010 --> 00:08:13.040
  • But what they instilled in me
  • 00:08:13.040 --> 00:08:15.270
  • much like what you guys instilled in her.
  • 00:08:15.270 --> 00:08:18.010
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:08:18.010 --> 00:08:18.290
  • - I decided to honor God.
  • 00:08:18.290 --> 00:08:20.200
  • And what the Bible tells us we should
  • 00:08:20.200 --> 00:08:22.180
  • do with our bodies prior to marriage.
  • 00:08:22.180 --> 00:08:24.280
  • - I mean,
  • 00:08:24.280 --> 00:08:25.250
  • how involved.
  • 00:08:25.250 --> 00:08:30.000
  • Of course you were raised in the church.
  • 00:08:31.120 --> 00:08:32.290
  • - Right, church kid.
  • 00:08:32.290 --> 00:08:34.020
  • - Church kid.
  • 00:08:34.020 --> 00:08:35.160
  • - People say I've been 60 years old since I've been 14.
  • 00:08:35.160 --> 00:08:37.280
  • And I have a very old soul.
  • 00:08:38.270 --> 00:08:40.150
  • - Yeah this is true.
  • 00:08:40.150 --> 00:08:41.130
  • - I love going to church.
  • 00:08:41.130 --> 00:08:43.250
  • We are the church.
  • 00:08:43.250 --> 00:08:45.030
  • - We are the church, we understand that.
  • 00:08:45.030 --> 00:08:46.150
  • - But you know,
  • 00:08:46.150 --> 00:08:47.280
  • just being with the people. - [DeeDee] Fellowship
  • 00:08:47.280 --> 00:08:48.260
  • - [DeeDee] and the worship.
  • 00:08:48.260 --> 00:08:49.240
  • - The whole church scene.
  • 00:08:49.240 --> 00:08:50.190
  • - Love it.
  • 00:08:50.190 --> 00:08:51.180
  • - And all this about.
  • 00:08:51.180 --> 00:08:52.270
  • We were in a church, not too long ago.
  • 00:08:52.270 --> 00:08:56.010
  • A week or so ago.
  • 00:08:56.010 --> 00:08:57.170
  • And the pastor said the same thing.
  • 00:08:57.170 --> 00:08:59.100
  • He said, "I just love church."
  • 00:08:59.100 --> 00:09:01.120
  • And she turned to me and said,
  • 00:09:01.120 --> 00:09:02.280
  • "That's what Tim was talking about right there."
  • 00:09:02.280 --> 00:09:05.160
  • - There's nothing like it.
  • 00:09:05.160 --> 00:09:06.260
  • - There's nothing like church.
  • 00:09:06.260 --> 00:09:08.060
  • But you're growing up.
  • 00:09:09.020 --> 00:09:10.210
  • And it's having the effect and the impact.
  • 00:09:10.210 --> 00:09:13.230
  • And you're saying, unlike most young men
  • 00:09:13.230 --> 00:09:17.040
  • who are even in church.
  • 00:09:17.040 --> 00:09:18.190
  • - Yeah, because it's not that common.
  • 00:09:18.190 --> 00:09:20.160
  • It should be.
  • 00:09:20.160 --> 00:09:22.000
  • - But at the same time
  • 00:09:22.000 --> 00:09:23.130
  • as we have prayed for her,
  • 00:09:23.130 --> 00:09:26.170
  • she has been praying the whole time.
  • 00:09:26.170 --> 00:09:29.130
  • God if I'm going to preserve myself.
  • 00:09:29.130 --> 00:09:33.110
  • - To save myself as they say.
  • 00:09:33.110 --> 00:09:35.120
  • - Right.
  • 00:09:35.120 --> 00:09:36.060
  • Why can't I believe you
  • 00:09:36.060 --> 00:09:40.140
  • for someone who's doing the same thing right now?
  • 00:09:40.140 --> 00:09:43.070
  • - Absolutely, and it felt so good.
  • 00:09:43.070 --> 00:09:45.040
  • 'Cause when me and Brelyn decided to date,
  • 00:09:45.040 --> 00:09:49.030
  • I had so much respect for her.
  • 00:09:49.030 --> 00:09:51.120
  • So when she told me that
  • 00:09:51.120 --> 00:09:54.030
  • it was so important for her to
  • 00:09:54.030 --> 00:09:57.050
  • be with somebody who had saved themselves.
  • 00:09:57.050 --> 00:09:59.160
  • To be able to stand in that situation
  • 00:09:59.160 --> 00:10:01.210
  • and in that moment,
  • 00:10:01.210 --> 00:10:03.070
  • and know that you've saved yourself,
  • 00:10:03.070 --> 00:10:05.170
  • it felt so good.
  • 00:10:05.170 --> 00:10:07.060
  • - Were you praying for the similar kind of outcome or?
  • 00:10:07.060 --> 00:10:10.160
  • - Not at all.
  • 00:10:10.160 --> 00:10:11.200
  • - You wasn't thinking along that?
  • 00:10:11.200 --> 00:10:12.140
  • - You weren't?
  • 00:10:12.140 --> 00:10:13.080
  • - I weren't.
  • 00:10:13.080 --> 00:10:14.130
  • I wasn't, I wasn't praying I want a virgin.
  • 00:10:14.130 --> 00:10:15.270
  • - Obviously y'all never had this kind of discussion.
  • 00:10:15.270 --> 00:10:17.220
  • - Yeah, I wasn't praying for it.
  • 00:10:17.220 --> 00:10:20.090
  • It's just something that.
  • 00:10:20.090 --> 00:10:22.080
  • I'm real diligent.
  • 00:10:22.080 --> 00:10:24.000
  • I'm a real diligent person,
  • 00:10:24.000 --> 00:10:25.090
  • so it wasn't about anybody else doing it.
  • 00:10:25.090 --> 00:10:27.240
  • It was about what I needed to do
  • 00:10:27.240 --> 00:10:30.180
  • in the commitment that I made.
  • 00:10:30.180 --> 00:10:32.120
  • So I'm really not saying that you praying for it.
  • 00:10:32.120 --> 00:10:35.180
  • But it was just something for me.
  • 00:10:35.180 --> 00:10:37.120
  • Yeah, but I didn't pray for it.
  • 00:10:37.120 --> 00:10:38.160
  • - Well we gotta go to break.
  • 00:10:38.160 --> 00:10:40.060
  • But I wanna find out,
  • 00:10:40.060 --> 00:10:42.060
  • what you would tell another young man.
  • 00:10:42.060 --> 00:10:46.100
  • Because we need more young men like you.
  • 00:10:46.100 --> 00:10:48.290
  • And then secondly, I would like for you
  • 00:10:48.290 --> 00:10:51.080
  • to explain this whole purity piece.
  • 00:10:51.080 --> 00:10:54.100
  • Because purity is not just abstaining from the sexual act.
  • 00:10:54.100 --> 00:10:58.060
  • 'Cause you can have all kind of
  • 00:10:58.060 --> 00:11:00.060
  • perverted things going on in your soul.
  • 00:11:00.060 --> 00:11:02.290
  • And that will disqualify you
  • 00:11:02.290 --> 00:11:05.200
  • as for being pure.
  • 00:11:05.200 --> 00:11:07.140
  • And so when we come back,
  • 00:11:07.140 --> 00:11:09.240
  • with the Bowman's, we're gonna have
  • 00:11:10.250 --> 00:11:13.030
  • those questions answered.
  • 00:11:13.030 --> 00:11:15.100
  • Stay tuned.
  • 00:11:15.100 --> 00:11:16.170
  • - Hola!
  • 00:11:24.060 --> 00:11:25.010
  • Boom, boom, boom, boom!
  • 00:11:26.100 --> 00:11:28.070
  • Babe, let's go.
  • 00:11:29.070 --> 00:11:30.140
  • We're going to get our marriage license today.
  • 00:11:31.250 --> 00:11:34.020
  • Whoop, whoop, whoop!
  • 00:11:34.020 --> 00:11:35.230
  • - Turn up, turn up, turn up
  • 00:11:35.230 --> 00:11:37.110
  • - You look cute!
  • 00:11:37.110 --> 00:11:39.060
  • So, we're excited.
  • 00:11:39.060 --> 00:11:41.080
  • I'm a little nervous because
  • 00:11:41.080 --> 00:11:42.170
  • (clears throat)
  • 00:11:42.170 --> 00:11:43.230
  • - What are you nervous for?
  • 00:11:43.230 --> 00:11:44.180
  • - Signing my life away.
  • 00:11:44.180 --> 00:11:45.180
  • (laughs)
  • 00:11:45.180 --> 00:11:46.130
  • - No, no, no.
  • 00:11:46.130 --> 00:11:47.140
  • - I'm not nervous at all because
  • 00:11:47.140 --> 00:11:48.200
  • I've never been sure of anything else
  • 00:11:48.200 --> 00:11:51.100
  • as I am sure of marrying this beautiful woman, right here.
  • 00:11:51.100 --> 00:11:55.170
  • - Oh, he's just trying to be sweet.
  • 00:11:55.170 --> 00:11:58.120
  • - Well we are on our way to the courthouse
  • 00:12:07.000 --> 00:12:09.200
  • to get our marriage license.
  • 00:12:09.200 --> 00:12:12.000
  • This is a big day, a big step.
  • 00:12:12.270 --> 00:12:15.120
  • It makes the whole process feel so much more real.
  • 00:12:16.280 --> 00:12:21.030
  • And I don't know what
  • 00:12:22.150 --> 00:12:24.270
  • what's in store.
  • 00:12:24.270 --> 00:12:26.130
  • Did I bring all the things I was supposed to bring?
  • 00:12:26.130 --> 00:12:30.070
  • No, yes?
  • 00:12:30.070 --> 00:12:31.020
  • You was supposed to make sure
  • 00:12:32.170 --> 00:12:33.160
  • - Did you?
  • 00:12:33.160 --> 00:12:34.220
  • - I guess, but yeah, I'm excited.
  • 00:12:34.220 --> 00:12:36.210
  • - I am thrilled.
  • 00:12:36.210 --> 00:12:38.010
  • I am overjoyed.
  • 00:12:39.240 --> 00:12:41.010
  • I'm overwhelmed.
  • 00:12:42.220 --> 00:12:44.020
  • I feel so many different ways I can keep going,
  • 00:12:45.290 --> 00:12:49.130
  • but I am excited about today.
  • 00:12:49.130 --> 00:12:52.020
  • It's one step closer.
  • 00:12:52.020 --> 00:12:53.240
  • We are officially 12 days away.
  • 00:12:55.030 --> 00:12:57.200
  • And it couldn't get here quick enough.
  • 00:12:59.010 --> 00:13:02.080
  • - Ya'll are looking at the marriage license
  • 00:13:05.040 --> 00:13:07.160
  • for Timothy Bowman Jr, and Brelyn Freeman.
  • 00:13:07.160 --> 00:13:10.250
  • Ya'll, we are so excited,
  • 00:13:10.250 --> 00:13:12.050
  • we got a chance to just come into the chapel
  • 00:13:12.050 --> 00:13:14.170
  • where people will come and get married
  • 00:13:14.170 --> 00:13:16.110
  • if they want to get married at the courthouse.
  • 00:13:16.110 --> 00:13:18.170
  • But, we are just overjoyed.
  • 00:13:18.170 --> 00:13:20.050
  • God has been so good to us, and we're so grateful.
  • 00:13:20.050 --> 00:13:22.140
  • And He's just so mindful.
  • 00:13:22.140 --> 00:13:24.160
  • He knew what I wanted in a wife and He gave it to me.
  • 00:13:24.160 --> 00:13:28.040
  • - Likewise.
  • 00:13:28.040 --> 00:13:29.130
  • - And we're just excited, man.
  • 00:13:29.130 --> 00:13:31.070
  • We don't take any of this for granted
  • 00:13:31.070 --> 00:13:33.060
  • We don't take
  • 00:13:33.060 --> 00:13:34.050
  • And I believe that God is also
  • 00:13:34.050 --> 00:13:36.130
  • honoring the sacrifice and commitment
  • 00:13:36.130 --> 00:13:39.040
  • that we made to Him, and to each other.
  • 00:13:39.040 --> 00:13:41.100
  • We have not had sex.
  • 00:13:41.100 --> 00:13:43.110
  • We're not ashamed of it.
  • 00:13:43.110 --> 00:13:45.000
  • And I believe it's going to
  • 00:13:45.000 --> 00:13:46.150
  • - or with anyone
  • 00:13:46.150 --> 00:13:47.100
  • - with anyone
  • 00:13:47.100 --> 00:13:48.050
  • - we're virgins
  • 00:13:48.050 --> 00:13:49.000
  • - virgins and
  • 00:13:49.000 --> 00:13:49.250
  • - to be clear
  • 00:13:49.250 --> 00:13:51.080
  • - We're just excited, man.
  • 00:13:51.080 --> 00:13:52.020
  • So we're back with hashtag meet the Bowman's.
  • 00:14:07.140 --> 00:14:10.230
  • And you need to go on that website
  • 00:14:10.230 --> 00:14:12.260
  • and find out all of the information that they have.
  • 00:14:12.260 --> 00:14:16.040
  • They have product, everything that will bless your life.
  • 00:14:16.040 --> 00:14:18.260
  • - [DeeDee] The purity certificate.

  • - Put your child on the right path.
  • 00:14:20.050 --> 00:14:22.110
  • And even if in fact you're still single
  • 00:14:22.110 --> 00:14:24.250
  • and considering that,
  • 00:14:24.250 --> 00:14:26.190
  • then that will be a great place to start.
  • 00:14:26.190 --> 00:14:29.040
  • So, watch this.
  • 00:14:29.040 --> 00:14:30.230
  • Tim, before we went to our break,
  • 00:14:30.230 --> 00:14:34.070
  • you were going to share with
  • 00:14:34.070 --> 00:14:36.270
  • other young men, how they can position themself.
  • 00:14:36.270 --> 00:14:41.120
  • I know Brelyn just mentioned
  • 00:14:41.120 --> 00:14:43.200
  • this thing has to go viral in you.
  • 00:14:43.200 --> 00:14:46.220
  • How would you suggest or recommend
  • 00:14:46.220 --> 00:14:50.240
  • a young men just keep that kind of focus throughout?
  • 00:14:50.240 --> 00:14:54.070
  • - Well, I think it's two things.
  • 00:14:54.070 --> 00:14:56.060
  • I think it's very rare for people in this generation--
  • 00:14:56.060 --> 00:15:00.070
  • - It is.
  • 00:15:00.070 --> 00:15:01.100
  • - To make that commitment and keep it.
  • 00:15:01.100 --> 00:15:02.240
  • But it's more rare, I would say for a man to do it.
  • 00:15:02.240 --> 00:15:05.170
  • - Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
  • 00:15:05.170 --> 00:15:06.240
  • - And there's this big misconception--
  • 00:15:06.240 --> 00:15:09.100
  • - 'Cause Tim I would have done it
  • 00:15:09.100 --> 00:15:10.210
  • if DeeDee wouldn't have been pressuring
  • 00:15:10.210 --> 00:15:13.280
  • me so much. - [DeeDee] I was all on you!
  • 00:15:13.280 --> 00:15:16.030
  • - Stop it, stop.
  • 00:15:16.030 --> 00:15:18.200
  • That is not true at all.
  • 00:15:18.200 --> 00:15:20.210
  • It was just the opposite actually.
  • 00:15:20.210 --> 00:15:23.160
  • Okay, so talk to me, I apologize.
  • 00:15:23.160 --> 00:15:26.030
  • - No, no, no, no, no, no.
  • 00:15:26.030 --> 00:15:27.180
  • But it's this misconception that you come off as weak,
  • 00:15:27.180 --> 00:15:30.220
  • and you know you wack. - [Mike] Lame.
  • 00:15:30.220 --> 00:15:32.150
  • - [Tim] Yeah all that stuff.
  • 00:15:32.150 --> 00:15:34.120
  • - Less than a man.
  • 00:15:35.110 --> 00:15:36.100
  • - Less than a man.
  • 00:15:36.100 --> 00:15:37.250
  • - Did you hear all of that?
  • 00:15:38.270 --> 00:15:40.030
  • Did you hear?
  • 00:15:40.030 --> 00:15:41.010
  • - No--
  • 00:15:41.010 --> 00:15:41.290
  • - Or were you as public with it
  • 00:15:41.290 --> 00:15:43.230
  • or you kept it on the.
  • 00:15:43.230 --> 00:15:45.160
  • - I really was public, but I don't have a
  • 00:15:45.160 --> 00:15:49.030
  • self-confidence problem.
  • 00:15:49.030 --> 00:15:50.290
  • You always tell me that.
  • 00:15:52.230 --> 00:15:54.060
  • (hissess)
  • 00:15:54.060 --> 00:15:55.280
  • Just come down just a little bit.
  • 00:15:55.280 --> 00:15:57.060
  • He calls me four much.
  • 00:15:57.060 --> 00:15:59.060
  • I'm not two much I'm four much.
  • 00:15:59.060 --> 00:16:00.220
  • But no, I think it's my motto through this whole thing.
  • 00:16:00.220 --> 00:16:04.210
  • And I keep saying it.
  • 00:16:04.210 --> 00:16:06.060
  • Is we feel like we need sex to boost up our swag.
  • 00:16:06.060 --> 00:16:10.010
  • And I always have been saying,
  • 00:16:10.010 --> 00:16:12.060
  • that if you need sex for your swag,
  • 00:16:12.060 --> 00:16:14.250
  • you didn't have much swag in the first place.
  • 00:16:14.250 --> 00:16:16.260
  • - Come on, come on.
  • 00:16:16.260 --> 00:16:18.010
  • - Now I'm just saying that because,
  • 00:16:18.010 --> 00:16:20.050
  • you think you have this swag.
  • 00:16:20.050 --> 00:16:21.290
  • And you sweed and you walking around on all these things.
  • 00:16:21.290 --> 00:16:25.120
  • But if you really care that much about
  • 00:16:25.120 --> 00:16:27.210
  • what people think about you.
  • 00:16:27.210 --> 00:16:29.120
  • Like what is that?
  • 00:16:29.120 --> 00:16:30.150
  • All that stuff is superficial.
  • 00:16:30.150 --> 00:16:32.070
  • So first, for me, it was finding out who I was.
  • 00:16:32.070 --> 00:16:35.250
  • - Where was your focus?
  • 00:16:35.250 --> 00:16:37.100
  • I mean was your focus that you have one individual?
  • 00:16:37.100 --> 00:16:40.150
  • Did you have your pastor?
  • 00:16:40.150 --> 00:16:42.190
  • Who guided you?
  • 00:16:42.190 --> 00:16:44.250
  • Who was the mentor?
  • 00:16:44.250 --> 00:16:47.010
  • How do you do that?
  • 00:16:47.010 --> 00:16:49.120
  • I mean, how do you abstain?
  • 00:16:49.120 --> 00:16:51.240
  • I really want you to--
  • 00:16:51.240 --> 00:16:53.180
  • - Yeah, was that something your
  • 00:16:53.180 --> 00:16:54.160
  • parents preached to you or what?
  • 00:16:54.160 --> 00:16:56.150
  • - It's good.
  • 00:16:56.150 --> 00:16:57.220
  • Finding something that was more pleasurable
  • 00:16:57.220 --> 00:17:00.260
  • than the act itself.
  • 00:17:00.260 --> 00:17:02.180
  • So the whole reason why people have
  • 00:17:02.180 --> 00:17:04.240
  • sex before marriage and ruin that commitment
  • 00:17:04.240 --> 00:17:06.290
  • is to experience that pleasure.
  • 00:17:06.290 --> 00:17:08.130
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:17:08.130 --> 00:17:09.110
  • - So for me, and like I said,
  • 00:17:09.110 --> 00:17:11.190
  • people have been saying I was 60
  • 00:17:11.190 --> 00:17:12.290
  • since I was 14 years old.
  • 00:17:12.290 --> 00:17:14.220
  • But for me, breaking that commitment to God
  • 00:17:14.220 --> 00:17:17.120
  • was so much more important.
  • 00:17:17.120 --> 00:17:19.080
  • - See that's what I'm saying.
  • 00:17:19.080 --> 00:17:20.060
  • So you had something higher
  • 00:17:20.060 --> 00:17:22.150
  • than that particular pleasure
  • 00:17:22.150 --> 00:17:25.080
  • that helped you to abstain over that time.
  • 00:17:25.080 --> 00:17:29.000
  • - And that principle that was put into me
  • 00:17:29.000 --> 00:17:31.170
  • pertaining to sex has carried
  • 00:17:31.170 --> 00:17:33.220
  • on in my life to other things.
  • 00:17:33.220 --> 00:17:36.150
  • - And so what was the deal with you
  • 00:17:36.150 --> 00:17:38.100
  • with respect to that Bre?
  • 00:17:38.100 --> 00:17:39.250
  • - Well mine was just being involved,
  • 00:17:39.250 --> 00:17:42.080
  • or my upcoming, upbringing with you all.
  • 00:17:42.080 --> 00:17:45.060
  • Knowing what the word was.
  • 00:17:45.060 --> 00:17:47.040
  • And I always say that parents are the representations
  • 00:17:47.040 --> 00:17:49.220
  • of Christ in the earth.
  • 00:17:49.220 --> 00:17:51.030
  • So your word to me was gold.
  • 00:17:51.030 --> 00:17:53.180
  • It was like, that's what I'm gonna do.
  • 00:17:53.180 --> 00:17:55.280
  • But as I got older I gained a relationship
  • 00:17:55.280 --> 00:17:58.170
  • with God for myself.
  • 00:17:58.170 --> 00:18:00.060
  • And I gained a relationship with the word.
  • 00:18:00.060 --> 00:18:01.270
  • So I knew this was right and this was what I wanna do.
  • 00:18:01.270 --> 00:18:04.190
  • So that kept me on track.
  • 00:18:04.190 --> 00:18:06.020
  • And then having people around me
  • 00:18:06.020 --> 00:18:08.170
  • who had the same like mind.
  • 00:18:08.170 --> 00:18:10.070
  • I think Tim's upbringing. - [Mike] That's my motto.
  • 00:18:10.070 --> 00:18:12.090
  • - Yeah, right, hang with those who have your answer,
  • 00:18:12.090 --> 00:18:14.180
  • get away from those who have your problem.
  • 00:18:14.180 --> 00:18:16.000
  • - Come on, preach it.
  • 00:18:16.000 --> 00:18:17.050
  • - And that is huge, because if Tim
  • 00:18:17.050 --> 00:18:19.290
  • even as a guy like he said.
  • 00:18:19.290 --> 00:18:23.000
  • Just putting up something that's higher
  • 00:18:23.000 --> 00:18:26.060
  • than the pleasure of sex.
  • 00:18:26.060 --> 00:18:28.070
  • Is like, for him that was his way,
  • 00:18:28.070 --> 00:18:30.000
  • and a lot of people don't have that upbringing
  • 00:18:30.000 --> 00:18:32.090
  • or people they know who wanna abstain.
  • 00:18:32.090 --> 00:18:35.070
  • But if they just say, okay, this is what
  • 00:18:35.070 --> 00:18:37.050
  • God wants for me.
  • 00:18:37.050 --> 00:18:38.200
  • And then when you honor God's word, He'll honor you.
  • 00:18:38.200 --> 00:18:41.090
  • And that's when you--
  • 00:18:41.090 --> 00:18:42.120
  • - We've seen the fruit.
  • 00:18:42.120 --> 00:18:43.280
  • It's like we could sit here right now.
  • 00:18:43.280 --> 00:18:46.090
  • Last week was our 10 month anniversary.
  • 00:18:47.100 --> 00:18:49.270
  • - [Bree and Mike] Three month.
  • 00:18:49.270 --> 00:18:51.040
  • - Three month, why am I saying 10?
  • 00:18:51.040 --> 00:18:53.030
  • - I heard three.
  • 00:18:53.030 --> 00:18:54.100
  • - 10 is on my head for some reason.
  • 00:18:54.100 --> 00:18:55.190
  • - Yeah, yeah, you were married the 10th day.
  • 00:18:55.190 --> 00:18:57.030
  • - God has start a word in me.
  • 00:18:57.030 --> 00:18:58.170
  • We'll reveal it later on.
  • 00:18:58.170 --> 00:19:00.160
  • He's dealing with Tim, He's dealing with Tim.
  • 00:19:00.160 --> 00:19:03.160
  • Anyway, it was our three month anniversary
  • 00:19:03.160 --> 00:19:06.010
  • and we can sit here and say that
  • 00:19:06.010 --> 00:19:07.220
  • we have experienced the fruit
  • 00:19:07.220 --> 00:19:10.100
  • of the decisions that we have made so.
  • 00:19:10.100 --> 00:19:12.130
  • - Yeah, I think that's what I love most
  • 00:19:12.130 --> 00:19:13.250
  • about our story.
  • 00:19:13.250 --> 00:19:15.100
  • Because you see a lot of people talk.
  • 00:19:15.100 --> 00:19:16.260
  • I've been abstaining for 50 years,
  • 00:19:16.260 --> 00:19:19.100
  • which is not a put down or anything bad,
  • 00:19:19.100 --> 00:19:21.120
  • but God really allowed our story to go viral
  • 00:19:21.120 --> 00:19:24.050
  • when we had the fruit.
  • 00:19:24.050 --> 00:19:25.230
  • So it's like, we're not just talking.
  • 00:19:25.230 --> 00:19:28.020
  • Like, we not just talking, we did this.
  • 00:19:28.020 --> 00:19:30.140
  • So we have the fruit of it.
  • 00:19:30.140 --> 00:19:32.000
  • That's what I love about it 'cause we can
  • 00:19:32.000 --> 00:19:33.220
  • share with people it is possible
  • 00:19:33.220 --> 00:19:35.110
  • and we did do it.
  • 00:19:35.110 --> 00:19:36.160
  • And this is the fruit of what we did.
  • 00:19:36.160 --> 00:19:38.010
  • - Okay, backtrack.
  • 00:19:38.010 --> 00:19:39.060
  • 'Cause we saw a little highlight of it.
  • 00:19:39.060 --> 00:19:40.260
  • We're at the reception, you call me up,
  • 00:19:40.260 --> 00:19:43.130
  • just like you saw your sister do it.
  • 00:19:43.130 --> 00:19:45.210
  • I was used to that, because she did it.
  • 00:19:45.210 --> 00:19:48.050
  • And now this is my moment to receive the certificate.
  • 00:19:48.050 --> 00:19:52.080
  • You give me the certificate--
  • 00:19:52.080 --> 00:19:53.140
  • - But was that required?
  • 00:19:53.140 --> 00:19:54.160
  • - Yeah, you darn tooting it was.
  • 00:19:54.160 --> 00:19:56.070
  • No (pastor laughs).
  • 00:19:56.070 --> 00:19:58.240
  • It was not required.
  • 00:19:58.240 --> 00:20:00.110
  • - That's what the issue has been.
  • 00:20:00.110 --> 00:20:01.270
  • - That was one of the issues yeah.
  • 00:20:01.270 --> 00:20:03.010
  • - You know, this whole time.
  • 00:20:03.010 --> 00:20:04.080
  • - Yeah, I was a jerk.
  • 00:20:04.080 --> 00:20:05.150
  • I was just some kind of--
  • 00:20:05.150 --> 00:20:06.290
  • - You were just everything.
  • 00:20:06.290 --> 00:20:08.100
  • Creep everything. - [Mike] Everything, so yeah.
  • 00:20:08.100 --> 00:20:09.110
  • - [Mike] But look at the fruit.
  • 00:20:09.110 --> 00:20:10.130
  • Get this, so you're now married,
  • 00:20:11.240 --> 00:20:15.130
  • you're at the reception, I get this certificate.
  • 00:20:15.130 --> 00:20:17.270
  • You leave, you're on your way to Dubai, your honeymoon spot.
  • 00:20:17.270 --> 00:20:21.090
  • Or the Maldives.
  • 00:20:21.090 --> 00:20:23.010
  • The plane lands, you turn on your phone and?
  • 00:20:24.030 --> 00:20:27.280
  • - Kaboom.
  • 00:20:27.280 --> 00:20:29.130
  • - Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom.
  • 00:20:29.130 --> 00:20:31.100
  • Like it went crazy.
  • 00:20:31.100 --> 00:20:33.040
  • Because really I was just doing highlights of the wedding.
  • 00:20:33.040 --> 00:20:36.080
  • And because I've been sharing my story
  • 00:20:36.080 --> 00:20:38.000
  • and my commitment to God so long ago
  • 00:20:38.000 --> 00:20:40.130
  • it wasn't something different for me
  • 00:20:40.130 --> 00:20:42.120
  • to post about my commitment or what I did.
  • 00:20:42.120 --> 00:20:45.030
  • So the highlights are just,
  • 00:20:45.030 --> 00:20:46.220
  • me and Tim dancing.
  • 00:20:46.220 --> 00:20:48.080
  • And then I say okay, "Hey I presented my father
  • 00:20:48.080 --> 00:20:50.200
  • "with this purity certificate stating that I was a virgin."
  • 00:20:50.200 --> 00:20:54.010
  • Got my doctor's signature, everything on that.
  • 00:20:54.010 --> 00:20:56.240
  • And then that, it just was like crazy.
  • 00:20:56.240 --> 00:21:00.040
  • So I think in the moment,
  • 00:21:00.040 --> 00:21:02.090
  • Tim really just said, "Hey look.
  • 00:21:02.090 --> 00:21:04.230
  • "This could be bad or this could be good."
  • 00:21:04.230 --> 00:21:07.020
  • Tim is very calm in situations.
  • 00:21:07.020 --> 00:21:09.050
  • I could be the one that's like (fake screams).
  • 00:21:09.050 --> 00:21:11.070
  • - Well let's deduce it down to what it is.
  • 00:21:11.070 --> 00:21:14.060
  • Okay we looking at it, and let's figure it out.
  • 00:21:14.060 --> 00:21:17.000
  • All this extra.
  • 00:21:17.000 --> 00:21:18.150
  • Because people had a lot of negative things to say.
  • 00:21:18.150 --> 00:21:20.190
  • - It started off really negative.
  • 00:21:20.190 --> 00:21:23.090
  • 'Cause the Shade Room posted it.
  • 00:21:23.090 --> 00:21:25.140
  • - I remember your calling home and like "Dad."
  • 00:21:25.140 --> 00:21:28.170
  • - And it was like "The Shade Room posted it!"
  • 00:21:28.170 --> 00:21:29.290
  • People were saying da da da.
  • 00:21:29.290 --> 00:21:31.140
  • - I'm not familiar with the Shade Room like that.
  • 00:21:31.140 --> 00:21:33.030
  • - They throw shade.
  • 00:21:33.030 --> 00:21:34.030
  • - That's all they do.
  • 00:21:34.030 --> 00:21:35.010
  • - That's all you need to know.
  • 00:21:35.010 --> 00:21:35.290
  • - A room of shade.
  • 00:21:35.290 --> 00:21:36.290
  • - [Bre and Mike] A room of shade.
  • 00:21:36.290 --> 00:21:38.160
  • - [Mike] And you felt like clapping back.
  • 00:21:38.160 --> 00:21:40.070
  • I learned that. - [Tim] Yes.
  • 00:21:40.070 --> 00:21:41.210
  • - But it was great, because he allowed me
  • 00:21:43.280 --> 00:21:46.210
  • to see it as, "Okay this is an opportunity
  • 00:21:46.210 --> 00:21:49.000
  • "to share your story.
  • 00:21:49.000 --> 00:21:50.120
  • "And God is now giving you another platform
  • 00:21:50.120 --> 00:21:52.220
  • "to share your testimony and encourage others to wait."
  • 00:21:52.220 --> 00:21:56.140
  • - And that's what we're gonna talk about.
  • 00:21:56.140 --> 00:21:58.030
  • The platform, the books, the products.
  • 00:21:58.030 --> 00:22:02.080
  • I mean you're gonna be so amazed
  • 00:22:02.080 --> 00:22:05.210
  • at what the Lord has done
  • 00:22:05.210 --> 00:22:08.130
  • through their testimony and story.
  • 00:22:08.130 --> 00:22:10.210
  • And I am elated to be able to say that's my baby girl.
  • 00:22:10.210 --> 00:22:15.040
  • Stay tuned, don't go anywhere,
  • 00:22:15.040 --> 00:22:16.270
  • we'll be right back.
  • 00:22:16.270 --> 00:22:18.100
  • So, we at the rehearsal dinner,
  • 00:22:21.170 --> 00:22:23.100
  • we just got done with the rehearsal.
  • 00:22:23.100 --> 00:22:26.200
  • It's still feeling surreal.
  • 00:22:26.200 --> 00:22:28.270
  • I'm so excited.
  • 00:22:28.270 --> 00:22:30.040
  • I can't even explain the feeling that I have.
  • 00:22:30.040 --> 00:22:33.180
  • It's like I waited my entire life

  • to find the woman of my dreams.
  • 00:22:35.060 --> 00:22:36.280

  • I'm going to spend the rest of my life with.
  • 00:22:56.060 --> 00:22:59.000
  • - I've been to this moment, I think a thousand,
  • 00:22:59.000 --> 00:23:01.250
  • if not more, times in my head.
  • 00:23:01.250 --> 00:23:04.020

  • about everything that's happening tomorrow
  • 00:23:19.200 --> 00:23:22.200
  • and I'm not going to get emotional,
  • 00:23:22.200 --> 00:23:25.030
  • cause I feel like I can cry right now.
  • 00:23:25.030 --> 00:23:27.030
  • But I'm not going to cry.
  • 00:23:27.030 --> 00:23:28.280

  • and he doesn't sing,
  • 00:23:53.060 --> 00:23:55.120
  • So, just pray that I make it through the song that he sings.

  • up until I was married.
  • 00:24:51.150 --> 00:24:52.100

  • 00:24:59.010 --> 00:25:02.100
  • Brelyn, you know that you will always be
  • 00:25:03.140 --> 00:25:06.250
  • be the one, na, na, na, na, na, na.
  • 00:25:08.130 --> 00:25:11.130
  • You'll always be number one for me.
  • 00:25:14.250 --> 00:25:17.220
  • - Here's another tip that you can consider
  • 00:25:22.270 --> 00:25:24.160
  • to making your marriage easy.
  • 00:25:24.160 --> 00:25:26.250
  • Marriage is very easy.
  • 00:25:26.250 --> 00:25:28.220
  • One of the things you can literally
  • 00:25:28.220 --> 00:25:30.210
  • stop saying is that it's hard.
  • 00:25:30.210 --> 00:25:33.010
  • - It's hard.
  • 00:25:33.010 --> 00:25:34.080
  • - You have what you say and there's a law
  • 00:25:34.080 --> 00:25:36.030
  • that you are putting into motion
  • 00:25:36.030 --> 00:25:38.040
  • every time you make that confession.
  • 00:25:38.040 --> 00:25:41.130
  • "Marriage is so hard. Marriage is so hard.
  • 00:25:41.130 --> 00:25:43.250
  • "We can't talk. We can't get along."
  • 00:25:43.250 --> 00:25:46.040
  • Listen to your words.
  • 00:25:46.040 --> 00:25:47.230
  • If you'll do that, listen to your words,
  • 00:25:47.230 --> 00:25:50.130
  • and begin to monitor them and say the right things
  • 00:25:50.130 --> 00:25:54.020
  • and respond the right way, you will always have
  • 00:25:54.020 --> 00:25:58.080
  • that direction, everything going in that direction
  • 00:25:58.080 --> 00:26:02.010
  • when you put your words in this proper place.
  • 00:26:02.010 --> 00:26:04.140
  • - Because they really don't want to say
  • 00:26:04.140 --> 00:26:06.010
  • that it's hard or they can't communicate.
  • 00:26:06.010 --> 00:26:08.140
  • They really want to say, "I want to be understood
  • 00:26:08.140 --> 00:26:11.160
  • "and I'm not being understood."
  • 00:26:11.160 --> 00:26:13.030
  • We have to say the right words to get the right answers.
  • 00:26:13.030 --> 00:26:15.290
