  • HEY, TONIGHT WE ARE GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:01:54.030 --> 00:01:55.230
  • BETH'S BOOK BEING FEATHERS FROM MY NEST.
  • 00:01:55.250 --> 00:01:57.170
  • YOU MIGHT BE SEEING US CRY ALL NIGHT BECAUSE
  • 00:01:57.190 --> 00:01:59.030
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT OUR CHILDREN, AND FIRST OF
  • 00:01:59.050 --> 00:02:01.200
  • ALL, SHE JUST SLAYS ME WITH HER HUMOR, BUT WHAT
  • 00:02:01.220 --> 00:02:02.280
  • AN AMAZING BOOK.
  • 00:02:03.000 --> 00:02:05.200
  • AND YOU NEVER EVEN THOUGHT THIS WAS GOING TO
  • 00:02:05.220 --> 00:02:07.120
  • BE A BOOK, DID YOU?
  • 00:02:07.140 --> 00:02:08.180
  • - NO. NO.
  • 00:02:08.200 --> 00:02:10.140
  • TRULY I WROTE THE BOOK BECAUSE I WAS TRYING TO
  • 00:02:10.160 --> 00:02:13.050
  • PROCESS HAVING AN EMPTY NEST.
  • 00:02:13.070 --> 00:02:15.120
  • AND WHEN KEITH AND I MARRIED, WE HAD BEEN TOLD
  • 00:02:15.140 --> 00:02:18.030
  • THAT I WAS GOING TO NEED SURGERY, AND I HAD NO
  • 00:02:18.050 --> 00:02:21.050
  • REASON TO THINK OTHERWISE BECAUSE IT HAD TAKEN MY
  • 00:02:21.070 --> 00:02:23.110
  • MOTHER NINE YEARS TO CONCEIVE AND I HAD SOME
  • 00:02:23.130 --> 00:02:25.260
  • OF HER SAME PHYSICAL PROBLEMS, SO WE OF COURSE
  • 00:02:25.280 --> 00:02:28.020
  • BELIEVED THEM.
  • 00:02:28.040 --> 00:02:31.010
  • THERE WAS NO OTHER REAL OPTION, SO WE ON INTO
  • 00:02:31.030 --> 00:02:33.290
  • MARRIAGE THINKING IT WOULD PROBABLY BE YEARS
  • 00:02:34.010 --> 00:02:36.130
  • AND SURGERY AND THEN WE'D START A FAMILY.
  • 00:02:36.150 --> 00:02:38.180
  • WELL, NINE MONTHS AND TWO WEEKS AFTER THE DAY WE
  • 00:02:38.200 --> 00:02:40.110
  • MARRIED WE GAVE BIRTH TO OUR FIRST CHILD.
  • 00:02:40.130 --> 00:02:43.130
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:02:43.150 --> 00:02:46.000
  • SO AN EMPTY NEST WAS A SHOCK BECAUSE WE HAD
  • 00:02:46.020 --> 00:02:48.070
  • ALMOST HAD NO OTHER KIND OF HOME.
  • 00:02:48.090 --> 00:02:52.070
  • WE KNEW SO QUICKLY IN -- ALL I KNEW I WAS SO SICK
  • 00:02:52.090 --> 00:02:54.230
  • AND I TOLD MY MOTHER, I SAID MARRIAGE HAS MADE ME ILL.
  • 00:02:54.250 --> 00:02:58.180
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:02:58.200 --> 00:03:00.110
  • SHE SAID, WHAT ARE YOUR SYMPTOMS?
  • 00:03:00.130 --> 00:03:02.030
  • AND I SAID EVERY DAY IT'S LIKE I DON'T EVEN WANT TO
  • 00:03:02.050 --> 00:03:04.060
  • GET OUT OF BED.
  • 00:03:04.080 --> 00:03:05.250
  • I'M SO TIRED, AND I SAID I'VE BEEN THROWING UP.
  • 00:03:05.270 --> 00:03:08.120
  • AND SHE SAID, WHEN HAVE YOU BEEN THROWING UP?
  • 00:03:08.140 --> 00:03:10.050
  • AND SHE SAID, I DO IT EVERY SINGLE DAY.
  • 00:03:10.070 --> 00:03:12.050
  • I JUST TRY TO GREET THE DAY AND I'M ALREADY
  • 00:03:12.070 --> 00:03:14.060
  • THROWING UP.
  • 00:03:14.080 --> 00:03:15.170
  • AND SHE FINALLY IS GOING LIKE, WAIT A SECOND.
  • 00:03:15.190 --> 00:03:17.100
  • YOU'RE NOT SICK.
  • 00:03:17.120 --> 00:03:18.180
  • YOU'RE EXPECTING, AND SHE WAS EXACTLY RIGHT.
  • 00:03:18.200 --> 00:03:21.000
  • SO FROM THE EARLIEST DAYS, FROM THE FIRST
  • 00:03:21.020 --> 00:03:23.160
  • COUPLE OF MONTHS WE WERE ALREADY MAKING ROOM IN
  • 00:03:23.180 --> 00:03:25.210
  • OUR MINDS THAT WE WERE MORE THAN TWO.
  • 00:03:25.230 --> 00:03:28.240
  • AND SO WHEN THEY LAUNCHED, IT WAS A SHOCK.
  • 00:03:28.260 --> 00:03:33.080
  • AND IT ALWAYS IS, BUT WHAT THE NAME COMES FROM,
  • 00:03:33.100 --> 00:03:36.180
  • FEATHERS FROM MY NEST, WAS THAT MY BIRDS HAVE
  • 00:03:36.200 --> 00:03:39.080
  • FLOWN, BUT EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK THERE WERE FEATHERS
  • 00:03:39.100 --> 00:03:43.130
  • LEFT, JUST THINGS THAT REMINDED ME OF THEM, AND
  • 00:03:43.150 --> 00:03:47.060
  • THINGS THAT WOULD CAPTURE A MOMENT IN OUR HOME OR A
  • 00:03:47.080 --> 00:03:51.240
  • SEASON IN TIME, AND IT WOULD JUST BE SIMPLE THINGS.
  • 00:03:51.260 --> 00:03:57.250
  • LIKE ONE OF THEM WAS FINDING A CRUMBLED UP
  • 00:03:57.270 --> 00:04:00.130
  • KLEENEX UNDER THE EDGE OF MY OLDEST DAUGHTER'S BED.
  • 00:04:00.150 --> 00:04:04.160
  • AND I KNEW THAT IT MEANT SHE HAD CRIED IN THE
  • 00:04:04.180 --> 00:04:08.190
  • NIGHT AND THAT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN SOMETHING THAT
  • 00:04:08.210 --> 00:04:11.180
  • I MAY NOT HAVE EVEN KNOWN ABOUT.
  • 00:04:11.200 --> 00:04:13.120
  • WHAT WAS HER HEARTBROKEN ABOUT THAT SHE WOULD HAVE
  • 00:04:13.140 --> 00:04:15.250
  • CRIED AND SHE WOULD HAVE STUCK THAT KLEENEX
  • 00:04:15.270 --> 00:04:18.010
  • UNDER THE BED.
  • 00:04:18.030 --> 00:04:20.010
  • I KNEW THAT'S THE ONLY REASON SHE WOULD HAVE
  • 00:04:20.030 --> 00:04:22.060
  • HIDDEN IT WAS BECAUSE SHE WAS HIDING WHAT HER HEART
  • 00:04:22.080 --> 00:04:24.170
  • WAS BROKEN ABOUT.
  • 00:04:24.190 --> 00:04:26.060
  • OTHERWISE, IF SHE HAD A COLD IT WOULD BE RIGHT
  • 00:04:26.080 --> 00:04:28.090
  • THERE ON THE BEDSIDE TABLE.
  • 00:04:28.110 --> 00:04:30.050
  • THINGS LIKE THAT THAT THEY LEFT BEHIND THAT
  • 00:04:30.070 --> 00:04:32.130
  • REMINDED ME YOU HAVE ALL THESE SEASONS OF MOTHERHOOD.
  • 00:04:32.150 --> 00:04:36.210
  • - DID YOU WRITE DOWN, I KNOW YOU KEEP A JOURNAL
  • 00:04:36.230 --> 00:04:39.010
  • EVERY DAY.
  • 00:04:39.030 --> 00:04:41.090
  • DID YOU BACK THEN, TOO?
  • 00:04:41.110 --> 00:04:42.280
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:04:43.000 --> 00:04:44.110
  • YOU KNOW, I WAS TRULY A WRITER OF SORTS EVEN
  • 00:04:44.130 --> 00:04:50.140
  • IN CHILDHOOD.
  • 00:04:50.160 --> 00:04:52.260
  • I WOULD SCRIBBLE ACROSS BIG CHIEF TABLETS EVEN
  • 00:04:52.280 --> 00:04:55.020
  • WHEN I HAD NO IDEA WHAT I WAS WRITING.
  • 00:04:55.040 --> 00:04:57.000
  • I WOULD THINK IN MY MIND I KNEW WHAT I WAS WRITING
  • 00:04:57.020 --> 00:04:59.040
  • BUT I WAS SCRATCHING LIKE MY IDEA OF CURSIVE.
  • 00:04:59.060 --> 00:05:01.150
  • SO I'VE ALWAYS JOURNALED AND WRITTEN THINGS DOWN,
  • 00:05:01.170 --> 00:05:05.150
  • AND EVEN AT THAT POINT WHAT BECAME THE BOOK WAS
  • 00:05:05.170 --> 00:05:08.060
  • THAT I WOULD JOT DOWN SOMETHING THAT I HAD SEEN
  • 00:05:08.080 --> 00:05:11.050
  • THAT REMINDED ME OF THEM, LIKE A STACK OF BINDERS
  • 00:05:11.070 --> 00:05:14.110
  • IN THE CLOSET OF ONE OF MY DAUGHTER'S ROOMS AND
  • 00:05:14.130 --> 00:05:17.060
  • ALL OF THOSE KIND OF THINGS, AND I JUST BEGAN
  • 00:05:17.080 --> 00:05:20.050
  • TO WRITE DOWN ALL OF THESE FEATHERS THEY LEFT
  • 00:05:20.070 --> 00:05:23.200
  • BEHIND AND THEN TO PROCESS IT.
  • 00:05:23.220 --> 00:05:26.180
  • I JUST THINK THE WAY I GET THROUGH SOMETHING IS
  • 00:05:26.200 --> 00:05:29.160
  • I DO IT IN WORDS.
  • 00:05:29.180 --> 00:05:31.190
  • AND SOME PEOPLE DO IT IN IMAGES AND THAT KIND OF
  • 00:05:31.210 --> 00:05:34.100
  • THING AND IMAGINATION.
  • 00:05:34.120 --> 00:05:37.050
  • I DO IT BY WRITING IT OUT IN WORDS.
  • 00:05:37.070 --> 00:05:39.070
  • - WELL, IF YOU EVER TEXT BETH SHE NEVER USES EMOJI
  • 00:05:39.090 --> 00:05:42.010
  • BECAUSE WE TEASE HER THAT SHE IS THE LIVING EMOJI.
  • 00:05:42.030 --> 00:05:44.280
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:05:45.000 --> 00:05:46.280
  • - I'M A LIVING EMOJI.
  • 00:05:47.000 --> 00:05:49.030
  • EMOJI WOULD BE OVERKILL FOR ME.
  • 00:05:49.050 --> 00:05:50.160
  • IT JUST WOULD BE TOO MUCH, SO NO, I NEVER USE
  • 00:05:50.180 --> 00:05:52.080
  • ONE BECAUSE I AM ONE. YES.
  • 00:05:52.100 --> 00:05:54.230
  • - BUT I'M THE EMOJI PERSON BECAUSE I DON'T
  • 00:05:54.250 --> 00:05:57.010
  • HAVE THE WORDS LIKE, SO WE'RE KIND OF COMPLETE
  • 00:05:57.030 --> 00:05:59.200
  • OPPOSITES IN OUR WAY OF COMMUNICATING.
  • 00:05:59.220 --> 00:06:01.180
  • AND I LOVE THAT ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:06:01.200 --> 00:06:03.010
  • - YOU KNOW WHAT I LOVE?
  • 00:06:03.030 --> 00:06:04.150
  • I LOVE THAT THIS BOOK, THE NAME OF IT, FEATHERS
  • 00:06:04.170 --> 00:06:08.020
  • FROM MY NEST, BECAUSE WHEN YOU WERE RAISING
  • 00:06:08.040 --> 00:06:10.020
  • THOSE CHILDREN YOU NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT WHAT THEY
  • 00:06:10.040 --> 00:06:12.150
  • WERE GOING TO LEAVE BEHIND WHEN THEY WENT
  • 00:06:12.170 --> 00:06:13.290
  • TO COLLEGE.
  • 00:06:14.010 --> 00:06:14.230
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:06:14.250 --> 00:06:16.000
  • - WHEN THEY GREW UP AND WHEN SHE LAUNCHED OUT
  • 00:06:16.020 --> 00:06:17.010
  • ON YOUR OWN.
  • 00:06:17.030 --> 00:06:18.020
  • YOU SAID EARLIER YOU WANTED OUR
  • 00:06:18.040 --> 00:06:19.150
  • CHILDREN ALWAYS.
  • 00:06:19.170 --> 00:06:20.280
  • YOU RAISED THEM TO BE STRONG WOMEN.
  • 00:06:21.000 --> 00:06:22.140
  • - YES.
  • 00:06:22.160 --> 00:06:23.200
  • - YOU RAISED THEM TO GO OUT OF THE NEST.
  • 00:06:23.220 --> 00:06:25.040
  • - YES.
  • 00:06:25.060 --> 00:06:26.110
  • - BUT WHEN YOU WERE RAISING THEM YOU NEVER
  • 00:06:26.130 --> 00:06:27.240
  • REALLY THOUGHT ABOUT THE REALITY OF WHEN THEY
  • 00:06:27.260 --> 00:06:29.120
  • LEFT THE NEST.
  • 00:06:29.140 --> 00:06:30.150
  • - NO.
  • 00:06:30.170 --> 00:06:31.180
  • AND THAT'S REALLY WHAT THIS BOOK IS ABOUT.
  • 00:06:31.200 --> 00:06:33.000
  • IT'S ABOUT THE REALITY OF I'VE RAISED MY CHILDREN.
  • 00:06:33.020 --> 00:06:36.020
  • NOW THEY'VE LEFT THE NEST.
  • 00:06:36.040 --> 00:06:36.270
  • - EXACTLY.
  • 00:06:36.290 --> 00:06:37.270
  • AND IT SEEMED TO GO ON AND ON.
  • 00:06:37.290 --> 00:06:40.280
  • IT SEEMED LIKE SOME OF THE DAYS OF DIFFICULTY
  • 00:06:41.000 --> 00:06:43.080
  • WOULD NEVER END, AND THEN SUDDENLY IT REALLY HAS
  • 00:06:43.100 --> 00:06:46.160
  • COME NOT TO AN END AS FAR AS THAT YOU'RE STILL
  • 00:06:46.180 --> 00:06:49.270
  • THEIR PARENT, BUT AN ERA HAS DEFINITELY ENDED, AND
  • 00:06:49.290 --> 00:06:54.250
  • IT COMES WITH A RECKONING BECAUSE YOU JUST THINK
  • 00:06:54.270 --> 00:06:58.130
  • BACK ON ALL OF IT.
  • 00:06:58.150 --> 00:07:00.170
  • AND I MEAN RECKONING IN A GOOD WAY.
  • 00:07:00.190 --> 00:07:02.130
  • I'M JUST SAYING THERE'S NO WAY NOT TO HAVE A
  • 00:07:02.150 --> 00:07:04.210
  • WRENCHING OF HEART.
  • 00:07:04.230 --> 00:07:06.110
  • AND I DID, VICTORIA WHAT YOU'RE SAYING I DID RAISE
  • 00:07:06.130 --> 00:07:08.100
  • MINE TO LAUNCH.
  • 00:07:08.120 --> 00:07:09.290
  • TO ME, ISN'T THAT OUR GOAL?
  • 00:07:10.010 --> 00:07:12.280
  • THAT WE'RE GOING TO HOPEFULLY SEND THESE
  • 00:07:13.000 --> 00:07:16.070
  • YOUNG ADULTS OUT INTO THE WORLD EQUIPPED FOR WHAT
  • 00:07:16.090 --> 00:07:19.240
  • THEY'RE GOING TO RUN INTO, WHAT THEY'RE
  • 00:07:19.260 --> 00:07:23.150
  • CHALLENGES WILL BE, THAT THAT I HAVE HAD A LOT OF
  • 00:07:23.170 --> 00:07:26.200
  • OPPORTUNITIES TO MAKE MISTAKES IN A SAFE PLACE,
  • 00:07:26.220 --> 00:07:29.230
  • TO LEARN A LOT OF HARD LESSONS AND HOPEFULLY A
  • 00:07:29.250 --> 00:07:33.140
  • LOT OF FUN LESSONS, AND THAT WE WANT THEM
  • 00:07:33.160 --> 00:07:36.000
  • TO LAUNCH.
  • 00:07:36.020 --> 00:07:39.250
  • BUT THEN WHEN THEY DO, I MEAN IT IS AN ABSENCE
  • 00:07:39.270 --> 00:07:42.150
  • LIKE NO OTHER ABSENCE BECAUSE THE VOLUME
  • 00:07:42.170 --> 00:07:45.190
  • JUST DROPS.
  • 00:07:45.210 --> 00:07:49.030
  • I MEAN, FROM TEN DOWN TO ABOUT TWO.
  • 00:07:49.050 --> 00:07:52.170
  • AND I REMEMBER, WHEN VICTORIA, WHEN MY
  • 00:07:52.190 --> 00:07:56.120
  • YOUNGEST ONE WENT TO COLLEGE, LITERALLY THAT
  • 00:07:56.140 --> 00:08:00.160
  • ONE I CAME BACK IN THE CAR WITH MY HUSBAND.
  • 00:08:00.180 --> 00:08:04.110
  • MY HUSBAND DROVE.
  • 00:08:04.130 --> 00:08:06.030
  • MY OLDEST DAUGHTER SHE DID NOT HAVE TO GO BACK
  • 00:08:06.050 --> 00:08:08.240
  • TO CLASS FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS.
  • 00:08:08.260 --> 00:08:10.150
  • SHE WAS AT A AND M.
  • 00:08:10.170 --> 00:08:12.120
  • MELISSA WAS AT BAYLOR AT THAT TIME, AND I
  • 00:08:12.140 --> 00:08:14.110
  • LITERALLY AFTER I SAID BYE TO MELISSA.
  • 00:08:14.130 --> 00:08:16.110
  • MELISSA COME OVER TO ME.
  • 00:08:16.130 --> 00:08:18.230
  • I WAS THINKING OF THE THIRD REASON WHY I NEEDED
  • 00:08:18.250 --> 00:08:20.120
  • TO RUN TO WAL-MART.
  • 00:08:20.140 --> 00:08:22.000
  • I SAID I'M GOING TO BE RIGHT BACK.
  • 00:08:22.020 --> 00:08:23.200
  • AND SHE COMES OVER TO ME.
  • 00:08:23.220 --> 00:08:25.170
  • SHE GETS ME BY THE SHOULDERS AND SHE SAID
  • 00:08:25.190 --> 00:08:27.060
  • MOTHER, YOU'VE DONE EVERYTHING.
  • 00:08:27.080 --> 00:08:29.220
  • IT'S DONE.
  • 00:08:29.240 --> 00:08:31.030
  • AND SHE SAID, YOU HAVE TO GO GET IN THAT CAR.
  • 00:08:31.050 --> 00:08:32.280
  • AND I LITERALLY I COULDN'T SPEAK.
  • 00:08:33.000 --> 00:08:35.260
  • I TURNED -- I HUGGED HER BECAUSE I KNEW SHE
  • 00:08:35.280 --> 00:08:39.020
  • WAS RIGHT.
  • 00:08:39.040 --> 00:08:40.210
  • I TURNED AROUND.
  • 00:08:40.230 --> 00:08:42.080
  • I DID NOT EVEN WAIT ON MY HUSBAND OR MY
  • 00:08:42.100 --> 00:08:44.150
  • OLDEST DAUGHTER.
  • 00:08:44.170 --> 00:08:46.200
  • I MEAN, I STARTED TRYING TO GET TO THE CAR AS
  • 00:08:46.220 --> 00:08:48.060
  • FARCE AS I COULD.
  • 00:08:48.080 --> 00:08:49.290
  • I LITERALLY CURLED UP IN THE
  • 00:08:50.010 --> 00:08:51.200
  • BACK SEAT.
  • 00:08:51.220 --> 00:08:53.200
  • I'M SO EMBARRASSED TO ADMIT TO THIS, BUT THAT
  • 00:08:53.220 --> 00:08:56.100
  • JUST THAT LAST ONE GOING, I CURLED UP IN
  • 00:08:56.120 --> 00:08:58.140
  • THE BACK SEAT.
  • 00:08:58.160 --> 00:08:59.210
  • I CRIED FOR 30 MINUTES.
  • 00:08:59.230 --> 00:09:01.200
  • AND THEN I SAT STRAIGHT UP AND SAID, HAVE YOU
  • 00:09:01.220 --> 00:09:03.260
  • COME TO THAT MEXICAN FOOD RESTAURANT YET?
  • 00:09:03.280 --> 00:09:05.050
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:09:05.070 --> 00:09:09.010
  • BECAUSE I HAD TO DOUSE IT IN SALSA.
  • 00:09:09.030 --> 00:09:12.270
  • THE ONLY WAY I COULD DEAL RIGHT THEN IS THAT I HAD
  • 00:09:12.290 --> 00:09:16.150
  • HONESTLY I HAD TO DRINK SALSA IN ORDER TO GET
  • 00:09:16.170 --> 00:09:20.000
  • THROUGH IT, AND I HAD TO DRINK IT ON THE EDGE OF A
  • 00:09:20.020 --> 00:09:21.220
  • TORTILLA CHIP.
  • 00:09:21.240 --> 00:09:24.110
  • SO IT WAS HUGE, AND THEN WHEN REGULAR LIVING -SO
  • 00:09:24.130 --> 00:09:27.280
  • I'D GO TO WORK IN I MORNING.
  • 00:09:28.000 --> 00:09:30.160
  • I'D HAVE MY TIME WITH GOD IN THE MORNING.
  • 00:09:30.180 --> 00:09:33.180
  • WE CALL IT MY DEVOTIONAL TIME OR QUIET TIME.
  • 00:09:33.200 --> 00:09:37.160
  • I DON'T LIKE TO CALL IT A QUIET TIME BECAUSE IT'S
  • 00:09:37.180 --> 00:09:39.160
  • NOT VERY QUIET AT MY HOUSE BECAUSE I CAN GET
  • 00:09:39.180 --> 00:09:42.070
  • RAUCOUS WITH GOD, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:09:42.090 --> 00:09:43.170
  • I CAN.
  • 00:09:43.190 --> 00:09:45.090
  • I CAN JUST LIKE GET INTO THE SCRIPTURES AND READ
  • 00:09:45.110 --> 00:09:47.110
  • THEM ALOUD, BUT I'D COME IN FROM WORK IN THE
  • 00:09:47.130 --> 00:09:51.120
  • AFTERNOON AND IT WOULD BE BEFORE KEITH GOT HOME,
  • 00:09:51.140 --> 00:09:54.170
  • AND I WOULD JUST HAVE TO GO BACK TO MY TABLE AGAIN
  • 00:09:54.190 --> 00:09:57.160
  • AND HAVE ANOTHER ONE BECAUSE I DID NOT KNOW
  • 00:09:57.180 --> 00:09:59.240
  • WHAT TO DO WITH MYSELF.
  • 00:09:59.260 --> 00:10:01.200
  • I DO NOW.
  • 00:10:01.230 --> 00:10:03.170
  • A FRIEND WAS ASKING ME A FEW MINUTES BEFORE WE
  • 00:10:03.190 --> 00:10:05.220
  • STARTED THE PROGRAM, BUT WEREN'T YOU GLAD?
  • 00:10:05.240 --> 00:10:09.160
  • YES OF COURSE, THERE ARE A HUNDRED THINGS YOU'RE
  • 00:10:09.180 --> 00:10:12.290
  • HAPPY ABOUT, THAT YOU'RE NOT WASHING SOMEONE'S
  • 00:10:13.010 --> 00:10:15.280
  • CLOTHES ALL THE TIME, THAT YOU'RE NOT MAKING UP
  • 00:10:16.000 --> 00:10:19.090
  • THEIR BED WHEN YOU REALLY HOPE THAT MAYBE ONE TIME
  • 00:10:19.110 --> 00:10:22.070
  • IN THEIR LIFE THEY ACTUALLY WOULD MAKE
  • 00:10:22.090 --> 00:10:24.060
  • IT THEMSELVES.
  • 00:10:24.080 --> 00:10:25.230
  • YOU KNOW, ALL OF THESE THINGS, BUT STILL IT WAS
  • 00:10:25.250 --> 00:10:28.150
  • LIKE YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH YOURSELF.
  • 00:10:28.170 --> 00:10:30.250
  • OR AT LEAST I DIDN'T.
  • 00:10:30.270 --> 00:10:32.280
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:10:33.000 --> 00:10:34.210
  • - I LOVE THAT SAYING, EVERYONE'S HEARD IT, MORE
  • 00:10:34.230 --> 00:10:36.080
  • IS CAUGHT THAN TAUGHT.
  • 00:10:36.100 --> 00:10:38.070
  • SO YOU CAN TEACH YOUR CHILDREN AND TEACH YOUR
  • 00:10:38.090 --> 00:10:40.150
  • CHILDREN, BUT UNLESS THEY SEE THE EXAMPLE LIVED
  • 00:10:40.170 --> 00:10:43.000
  • OUT, IT'S NOT GOING TO REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE
  • 00:10:43.020 --> 00:10:45.180
  • IN THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:10:45.200 --> 00:10:47.130
  • SO YOU TALK IN THE BOOK THAT WHEN YOU SAW THESE
  • 00:10:47.150 --> 00:10:49.090
  • DIFFERENT THEIR BELONGINGS WHEN THEY LEFT
  • 00:10:49.110 --> 00:10:51.020
  • BEHIND, AND THEN YOU SAW THEM OUT, AND MAYBE THEY
  • 00:10:51.040 --> 00:10:55.060
  • WEREN'T THROUGH SOME DIFFICULT TIMES, AND YOU
  • 00:10:55.080 --> 00:10:57.260
  • SAW HOW WHAT THEY LEARNED IN THEIR HOMEMADE ALL THE
  • 00:10:57.280 --> 00:11:00.200
  • DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:11:00.220 --> 00:11:02.190
  • TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THAT BECAUSE WE WANT TO
  • 00:11:02.210 --> 00:11:04.200
  • THINK OUR CHILDREN ARE PERFECT, BUT NONE OF
  • 00:11:04.220 --> 00:11:06.180
  • THEM ARE.
  • 00:11:06.200 --> 00:11:08.010
  • WE'RE ALL GOING TO FACE CHALLENGES.
  • 00:11:08.030 --> 00:11:09.240
  • - WELL -[LAUGHTER]
  • 00:11:09.260 --> 00:11:12.240
  • - EXCEPT FOR LAURIE.
  • 00:11:12.260 --> 00:11:14.120
  • - WELL -- [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:11:14.140 --> 00:11:16.110
  • - BUT WE'RE ALL GOING TO FACE CHALLENGES.
  • 00:11:16.130 --> 00:11:18.150
  • I THINK THAT'S THE WORST THING FOR A MOTHER, DON'T
  • 00:11:18.170 --> 00:11:20.270
  • YOU, IS THAT YOU WANT TO CARRY YOUR CHILDREN
  • 00:11:20.290 --> 00:11:22.150
  • AROUND JUST ON A LITTLE SILVER PLATTER AND DON'T
  • 00:11:22.170 --> 00:11:23.210
  • LET THEM GET HURT.
  • 00:11:23.230 --> 00:11:25.060
  • BUT THAT'S PART OF OUR GROWTH.
  • 00:11:25.080 --> 00:11:26.120
  • - IT REALLY IS.
  • 00:11:26.140 --> 00:11:28.030
  • AND WHAT YOU ACTUALLY DO WANT IS THAT THEY'RE
  • 00:11:28.050 --> 00:11:30.180
  • GOING TO GO THROUGH SOME OF THAT UNDER YOUR ROOF
  • 00:11:30.200 --> 00:11:32.280
  • WHERE YOU DO GET TO BE A SHELTER FOR IT.
  • 00:11:33.000 --> 00:11:37.230
  • SO YOU DON'T WANT ALL OF THEIR EXPERIENCES WITH
  • 00:11:37.250 --> 00:11:40.070
  • HARDSHIP OR HEARTBREAK -- IT'S ONE REASON I SOME
  • 00:11:40.090 --> 00:11:43.260
  • FRIENDS THEY JUST LIKE SAID I DON'T WANT MY KIDS
  • 00:11:43.280 --> 00:11:45.220
  • TO DATE UNTIL SO AND SO.
  • 00:11:45.240 --> 00:11:48.170
  • KEITH AND I FELT DIFFERENTLY ABOUT IT.
  • 00:11:48.190 --> 00:11:51.030
  • WE FELT LIKE NO, I WANT THEM TO START DATING IN
  • 00:11:51.050 --> 00:11:54.160
  • MY HOME WHERE I AM ABLE TO BE THERE AROUND SOME
  • 00:11:54.180 --> 00:11:58.170
  • OF THE DYNAMICS THAT GO WITH IT.
  • 00:11:58.190 --> 00:12:02.060
  • I DON'T WANT THEM TO HAVE LAUNCHED AND THEN THEY'RE
  • 00:12:02.080 --> 00:12:04.290
  • GOING TO START HAVING RELATIONSHIPS.
  • 00:12:05.010 --> 00:12:08.050
  • WE NEED TO NEGOTIATE SOME OF THAT IN THE SAFE PLACE
  • 00:12:08.070 --> 00:12:10.140
  • OF OUR HOME.
  • 00:12:10.160 --> 00:12:12.070
  • BUT I WILL TELL YOU THIS, VICTORIA, THERE WAS NO
  • 00:12:12.090 --> 00:12:15.050
  • EXPECTATION FOR MY KIDS TO BE PERFECT, AND
  • 00:12:15.070 --> 00:12:17.250
  • THERE'S OF COURSE NOT FOR ANY OF US, BUT MINE HAD
  • 00:12:17.270 --> 00:12:20.130
  • VERY VERY IMPERFECT PARENTS.
  • 00:12:20.150 --> 00:12:22.160
  • I WANT TO SAY THIS BECAUSE SOMEBODY REALLY
  • 00:12:22.180 --> 00:12:25.010
  • NEEDS TO HEAR THIS TODAY LEST YOU HAVE AN IDEA OF
  • 00:12:25.030 --> 00:12:28.090
  • SOMETHING THAT OUR HOME MIGHT HAVE BEEN LIKE THAT
  • 00:12:28.110 --> 00:12:31.080
  • WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ACCURATE.
  • 00:12:31.100 --> 00:12:33.150
  • KEITH AND I BOTH CAME FROM A VERY DARK PLACE.
  • 00:12:33.170 --> 00:12:37.040
  • BOTH FAMILIES WITH DEEP STRUGGLES.
  • 00:12:37.060 --> 00:12:40.070
  • HE CAME FROM TRAGEDY.
  • 00:12:40.090 --> 00:12:42.120
  • HE AND HIS BROTHER WERE IN A HOUSE FIRE WHEN THEY
  • 00:12:42.140 --> 00:12:44.280
  • WERE LITTLE BITTY BOYS, WHEN KEITH WAS JUST 2 AND
  • 00:12:45.000 --> 00:12:47.060
  • HIS BROTHER WAS 3 AND A HALF AND HIS BROTHER DID
  • 00:12:47.080 --> 00:12:49.220
  • NOT LIVE.
  • 00:12:49.240 --> 00:12:51.250
  • AND I COME FROM A BACKGROUND WHEREIN MY
  • 00:12:51.270 --> 00:12:55.000
  • HOME THERE WAS A LOT OF INSTABILITY, VERY VERY
  • 00:12:55.020 --> 00:12:58.020
  • UNHAPPY MARRIAGE FOR MY PARENTS.
  • 00:12:58.040 --> 00:13:01.160
  • AND I COME FROM A BACKGROUND OF SEXUAL
  • 00:13:01.180 --> 00:13:04.210
  • ABUSE UNDERNEATH THE ROOF OF MY HOME, SO I DON'T
  • 00:13:04.230 --> 00:13:09.210
  • GET MORE SPECIFIC THAN THAT BUT IT'S
  • 00:13:09.230 --> 00:13:11.240
  • VERY TRAUMATIC.
  • 00:13:11.260 --> 00:13:13.150
  • SO ALL OF THIS MOVED INTO THE SAME HOME TOGETHER,
  • 00:13:13.170 --> 00:13:17.100
  • AND OF COURSE IT DID BECAUSE BAGGAGE ATTRACTS
  • 00:13:17.120 --> 00:13:20.220
  • BAGGAGE, AND I MEAN KEITH AND I ALL IT TOOK WAS
  • 00:13:20.240 --> 00:13:23.040
  • THAT HE WAS VERY HANDSOME AND HE HAD A LOT OF
  • 00:13:23.060 --> 00:13:25.220
  • BAGGAGE, SO WE WERE [LAUGHTER] THAT IS IT.
  • 00:13:25.240 --> 00:13:31.040
  • THAT IS IT.
  • 00:13:31.060 --> 00:13:32.240
  • THAT IS MY GUY, AND SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HE
  • 00:13:32.260 --> 00:13:35.260
  • TOLD THE KIDS, THIS IS WHEN THEY WERE GROWN, BUT
  • 00:13:35.280 --> 00:13:38.190
  • WHEN THEY WERE YOUNG ADULTS AND THEY WERE
  • 00:13:38.210 --> 00:13:40.240
  • LAUNCHING HE SAID TO THEM, JUST AS DRYLY, I
  • 00:13:40.260 --> 00:13:43.060
  • WISH I COULD DO IT JUST EXACTLY LIKE HE SAID, HE
  • 00:13:43.080 --> 00:13:46.010
  • SAID, YOU'RE BOTH GOING TO NEED COUNSELING
  • 00:13:46.030 --> 00:13:47.250
  • BECAUSE OF YOUR MOTHER AND I.
  • 00:13:47.270 --> 00:13:49.080
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:13:49.100 --> 00:13:50.240
  • AND HE SAID WHEN YOU DO, I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW
  • 00:13:50.260 --> 00:13:52.190
  • THAT YOUR FATHER WILL PAY FOR IT.
  • 00:13:52.210 --> 00:13:53.240
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:13:53.260 --> 00:13:55.230
  • SO THAT WAS US.
  • 00:13:55.250 --> 00:13:58.070
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:13:58.090 --> 00:13:59.220
  • THAT WAS US, SO WE -I CAN TELL YOU THEY WAY OUTDID
  • 00:13:59.240 --> 00:14:05.100
  • THEIR PARENTS.
  • 00:14:05.120 --> 00:14:06.270
  • THEY DID MUCH BETTER THAN WE DID.
  • 00:14:06.290 --> 00:14:09.260
  • - WELL, YOU KNOW, NONE OF US ARE PERFECT, AND I
  • 00:14:09.280 --> 00:14:13.080
  • THINK WE PROBABLY WE DON'T EVER WANT TO LIVE
  • 00:14:13.100 --> 00:14:16.170
  • WITHOUT REGRETS BUT I THINK THERE ARE ALWAYS
  • 00:14:16.190 --> 00:14:19.050
  • SOME THINGS THAT WE WISH WE COULD HAVE DONE MORE,
  • 00:14:19.070 --> 00:14:22.170
  • AND I KNOW THERE'S A LOT OF PEOPLE WATCHING
  • 00:14:22.190 --> 00:14:24.240
  • TONIGHT THAT MAYBE DIDN'T RAISE THEIR CHILDREN IN A
  • 00:14:24.260 --> 00:14:28.150
  • CHRISTIAN HOME.
  • 00:14:28.170 --> 00:14:30.110
  • YOU WERE A STAY-AT-HOME MOM AT THAT TIME, RIGHT?
  • 00:14:30.130 --> 00:14:32.290
  • AS THEY WERE COMING UP THROUGH ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
  • 00:14:33.010 --> 00:14:35.150
  • WHEN YOU DID THE CARPOOLING.
  • 00:14:35.170 --> 00:14:37.060
  • - YES.
  • 00:14:37.080 --> 00:14:39.180
  • - AND YOU HAD A LOT OF TIME WITH THEM.
  • 00:14:39.200 --> 00:14:41.130
  • - LET ME SAY I WAS A MIX BECAUSE WHAT I DID IS
  • 00:14:41.150 --> 00:14:44.220
  • THAT FROM THE MOMENT THEY WERE IN SCHOOL UNTIL THE
  • 00:14:44.240 --> 00:14:49.250
  • THAT I PICKED THEM UP I WAS WORKING IN THAT TIME.
  • 00:14:49.270 --> 00:14:53.160
  • I WAS ALREADY -- BY THE TIME THEY WERE IN MIDDLE
  • 00:14:53.180 --> 00:14:56.130
  • SCHOOL AND EARLY HIGH SCHOOL I HAD BEGUN
  • 00:14:56.150 --> 00:15:01.270
  • WRITING CURRICULUM SO I WAS ALREADY WRITING BIBLE
  • 00:15:01.290 --> 00:15:04.080
  • STUDIES BY THAT TIME.
  • 00:15:04.100 --> 00:15:05.290
  • SO WHAT I'D DO AND EVEN WHEN THEY WERE MUCH
  • 00:15:06.010 --> 00:15:07.290
  • YOUNGER THAN THAT, EVEN BY THE TIME THE YOUNGEST
  • 00:15:08.010 --> 00:15:10.210
  • WENT TO KINDERGARTEN DURING THAT SET OF
  • 00:15:10.230 --> 00:15:14.220
  • HOURS I WOULD GO AND SPEAK AT A LUNCHEON IN
  • 00:15:14.240 --> 00:15:16.250
  • HOUSTON OR A BREAK FAST FOREWOMEN FOR WHATEVER
  • 00:15:16.270 --> 00:15:21.000
  • OCCASION MIGHT HAVE BEEN SO I WAS DOING ALL OF
  • 00:15:21.020 --> 00:15:23.270
  • THAT, SO I WAS A STAY-AT-HOME MOM AS FAR
  • 00:15:23.290 --> 00:15:26.270
  • AS THEY WERE CONCERNED BECAUSE I WAS THE ONE
  • 00:15:26.290 --> 00:15:29.060
  • TAKING THEM AND PICKING THEM UP AND I WAS THERE
  • 00:15:29.080 --> 00:15:31.030
  • MOST EVENINGS.
  • 00:15:31.050 --> 00:15:33.030
  • JUST LIKE VERY NORMAL TO THEM.
  • 00:15:33.050 --> 00:15:36.270
  • BUT DURING THE DAY IT WAS A TOTALLY DIFFERENT
  • 00:15:36.290 --> 00:15:39.270
  • STORY, SO I WORKED HARD DURING THOSE HOURS.
  • 00:15:39.290 --> 00:15:43.080
  • - BUT YOU GOT TO SPEND THE TIME WITH THEM.
  • 00:15:43.100 --> 00:15:44.290
  • - I DID.
  • 00:15:45.010 --> 00:15:46.150
  • - AND YOU GOT TO TEACH THEM THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:15:46.170 --> 00:15:47.180
  • - I DID.
  • 00:15:47.200 --> 00:15:49.030
  • - AND SO MANY WOMEN THOUGH THAT DON'T GET
  • 00:15:49.050 --> 00:15:50.140
  • THAT OPPORTUNITY.
  • 00:15:50.160 --> 00:15:53.050
  • - THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:15:53.070 --> 00:15:54.190
  • - THEY MIGHT NOT HAVE BEEN SAVED AT THAT TIME,
  • 00:15:54.210 --> 00:15:56.080
  • SO THERE MIGHT BE A LOT OF REGRET FOREWOMEN.
  • 00:15:56.100 --> 00:15:57.220
  • CAN WE JUST TOUCH ON THAT, THAT IT'S NEVER
  • 00:15:57.240 --> 00:15:59.140
  • TOO LATE?
  • 00:15:59.160 --> 00:16:00.240
  • - NEVER TOO LATE.
  • 00:16:00.260 --> 00:16:02.060
  • - NEVER TOO LATE.
  • 00:16:02.080 --> 00:16:03.220
  • - THIS IS SOMETHING THAT YOU TWO AND I GOT TO TALK
  • 00:16:03.240 --> 00:16:07.000
  • ABOUT A LITTLE BIT BEFORE WE EVEN GOT TO COME OUT
  • 00:16:07.020 --> 00:16:09.220
  • AND SERVE IS THAT WE ALL FELT SO STRONGLY, ALL THREE
  • 00:16:09.240 --> 00:16:12.060
  • OF US THAT WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU
  • 00:16:12.080 --> 00:16:16.260
  • UNDERSTAND THAT GOD IS SO GRACIOUS AND TO LOOK BACK
  • 00:16:16.280 --> 00:16:21.190
  • ON IT -- LISTEN, I'VE GOT SO MANY REGRETS AND JUST
  • 00:16:21.210 --> 00:16:24.040
  • SO THAT YOU HAVE AN ACCURATE IDEA OF A LITTLE
  • 00:16:24.060 --> 00:16:28.110
  • BIT ABOUT THE DYNAMIC IN OUR HOME, MY HUSBAND WAS
  • 00:16:28.130 --> 00:16:30.230
  • NOT THE DEACON KIND.
  • 00:16:30.250 --> 00:16:34.160
  • I DON'T HAVE A PASTOR HUSBAND.
  • 00:16:34.180 --> 00:16:37.170
  • HE WAS NOT INTO THE SAME KINDS OF THINGS.
  • 00:16:37.190 --> 00:16:40.080
  • HE WENT TO CHURCH WHEN HE WANTED TO, AND SO SOME OF
  • 00:16:40.100 --> 00:16:43.090
  • THE THINGS THAT I WAS DOING REGARDING SPIRITUAL
  • 00:16:43.110 --> 00:16:47.020
  • UPBRINGING I WAS NEGOTIATING PRETTY
  • 00:16:47.040 --> 00:16:50.040
  • CAREFULLY WITH WHAT OUR HOME DYNAMIC WAS SO THAT
  • 00:16:50.060 --> 00:16:54.020
  • I WAS NOT OFFSETTING WHAT HE REALLY ALSO WANTED TO
  • 00:16:54.040 --> 00:17:00.090
  • POUR INTO THEM, SO IT WASN'T A VERY EASY THING,
  • 00:17:00.110 --> 00:17:03.250
  • AND THERE WAS A LOT OF MANEUVERING AROUND OUR
  • 00:17:03.270 --> 00:17:07.140
  • DYNAMICS, SO ALL OF US HAVE REGRETS.
  • 00:17:07.160 --> 00:17:11.190
  • BUT I WANT TO SAY SOMETHING.
  • 00:17:11.210 --> 00:17:13.250
  • I THINK THIS IS SO IMPORTANT, VICTORIA AND
  • 00:17:13.270 --> 00:17:16.180
  • LAURIE, THAT PEOPLE HEAR.
  • 00:17:16.200 --> 00:17:21.110
  • IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO GO BACK AND IN THERE AND SAY
  • 00:17:21.130 --> 00:17:23.210
  • NOT THAT WE'RE GOING TO RELIVE THEIR CHILDHOOD
  • 00:17:23.230 --> 00:17:26.170
  • BUT TO GO BACK AND REALLY LONG FOR AND FIGHT FOR
  • 00:17:26.190 --> 00:17:32.230
  • RELATIONSHIP, EVEN WITH ADULT CHILDREN THAT YOU
  • 00:17:32.250 --> 00:17:35.170
  • WERE NOT CLOSE TO WHEN THEY GREW UP.
  • 00:17:35.190 --> 00:17:38.170
  • MAYBE YOU'VE HAD LOTS AND LOTS OF PROBLEMS WHEN
  • 00:17:38.190 --> 00:17:40.280
  • THEY WERE LITTLE.
  • 00:17:41.000 --> 00:17:42.260
  • MAYBE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE MORE REGRETS THAN
  • 00:17:42.280 --> 00:17:45.050
  • YOU HAVE THINGS THAT YOU FEEL GOOD ABOUT.
  • 00:17:45.070 --> 00:17:47.010
  • I WANT YOU TO KNOW GOD IS SUCH A RESTORER, SUCH A
  • 00:17:47.030 --> 00:17:49.140
  • REPAIRER OF BROKEN ROADS AND BRIDGES.
  • 00:17:49.160 --> 00:17:52.210
  • AND HE'S SO FAITHFUL, AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I
  • 00:17:52.230 --> 00:17:55.250
  • FEEL STRONGLY ABOUT AND SOMEBODY NEEDS TO HEAR
  • 00:17:55.270 --> 00:17:58.110
  • THIS, I DON'T THINK THAT OUR KIDS EXPECTED US TO
  • 00:17:58.130 --> 00:18:03.010
  • BE PERFECT.
  • 00:18:03.030 --> 00:18:04.290
  • I THINK THEY EXPECT US TO BE AUTHENTIC, AND I THINK
  • 00:18:05.010 --> 00:18:08.030
  • -- DON'T YOU THINK?
  • 00:18:08.050 --> 00:18:09.290
  • [APPLAUSE] I THINK WHAT THEY RESENT IS HYPOCRISY,
  • 00:18:10.010 --> 00:18:17.180
  • WHEN WE WON'T OWN IT.
  • 00:18:17.200 --> 00:18:20.050
  • AND EVEN IF WE LOOK BACK AND SAY WELL, IT'S TOO LATE.
  • 00:18:20.070 --> 00:18:22.070

  • 00:18:58.030 --> 00:19:01.100
  • BEEN WORN DOWN THROUGH YEARS, THEY NEED A LITTLE TIME.
  • 00:19:01.120 --> 00:19:05.280
  • WE DON'T JUST JUMP BACK INTO INSTANT CLOSENESS.
  • 00:19:06.000 --> 00:19:10.030
  • TRUST NEEDS TO BE BUILT UP.
  • 00:19:10.050 --> 00:19:11.290

  • 00:23:38.230 --> 00:23:41.170
  • KEPT THEM FOR A PARTICULAR REASON.
  • 00:23:41.190 --> 00:23:44.100
  • IT WAS A PAIR OF SHOES, IT WAS A CASSETTE TAPE, A
  • 00:23:44.120 --> 00:23:49.000
  • GREEN CAP AND GOWN FROM HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION,
  • 00:23:49.020 --> 00:23:52.110
  • BUT ONE OF MY VERY FAVORITES IS THE BINDERS
  • 00:23:52.130 --> 00:23:55.030
  • BECAUSE THIS PARTICULAR CHILD FOR US, WE HAD THAT
  • 00:23:55.050 --> 00:24:00.040
  • FIRST BORN THAT WAS JUST GONNA TAKE SCHOOL BY STORM.
  • 00:24:00.060 --> 00:24:05.100
  • SHE WAS A VERY ACADEMIC THINKER FROM THE VERY
  • 00:24:05.120 --> 00:24:08.140
  • BEGINNING, AND SHE WANTED TO EXCEL IN SCHOOL, SO
  • 00:24:08.160 --> 00:24:11.160
  • THAT WAS JUST HER THING.
  • 00:24:11.180 --> 00:24:13.230
  • AND SHE PLAYED SPORTS BUT MY YOUNGER ONE, I MEAN
  • 00:24:13.250 --> 00:24:16.270
  • SHE EXCELLED AT SPORTS, AND HER MAIN THOUGHT WAS
  • 00:24:16.290 --> 00:24:21.080
  • JUST GET THE GRADES YOU HAVE TO GET IN ORDER TO
  • 00:24:21.100 --> 00:24:24.140
  • PLAY BALL BECAUSE IN A PUBLIC SCHOOL, YOU HAVE
  • 00:24:24.160 --> 00:24:26.280
  • TO GET A CERTAIN GRADE POINT SO YOU CAN PLAY BALL.
  • 00:24:27.000 --> 00:24:29.210
  • THAT'S ALL SHE CARED ABOUT.
  • 00:24:29.230 --> 00:24:31.030
  • SO I'VE SAID SO MANY TIMES SHE HAD TO HAVE
  • 00:24:31.050 --> 00:24:32.260
  • BEEN THE MOST BRILLIANT ONE IN OUR FAMILY BECAUSE
  • 00:24:32.280 --> 00:24:36.050
  • SHE DID NOT STUDY FOR A SINGLE EXAM GROWING UP,
  • 00:24:36.070 --> 00:24:39.180
  • NOT A SINGLE ONE, AND SHE WOULD JUST LOOK AT THE
  • 00:24:39.200 --> 00:24:42.130
  • TEXTBOOK ON THE WAY IN THE CAR AT THE LIGHTS
  • 00:24:42.150 --> 00:24:45.190
  • WHEN SHE DROVE.
  • 00:24:45.210 --> 00:24:47.140
  • THIS WAS THE WAY THAT SHE APPROACHED SCHOOL.
  • 00:24:47.160 --> 00:24:52.090
  • BUT EVERY TIME SHE WANTED TO MAKE A NEW START,
  • 00:24:52.110 --> 00:24:55.150
  • SHE GOT A NEW BINDER.
  • 00:24:55.170 --> 00:24:56.270
  • AND I COULD ALWAYS TELL WHEN SHE WAS GONNA MAKE A
  • 00:24:56.290 --> 00:24:58.210
  • NEW, THIS IS A NEW EFFORT, SHE WAS GONNA
  • 00:24:58.230 --> 00:25:01.120
  • MAKE THOSE GRADES, SHE WAS GONNA GET IN THERE
  • 00:25:01.140 --> 00:25:03.250
  • AND SHE WAS GONNA DO THIS, AND SHE WAS GONNA
  • 00:25:03.270 --> 00:25:05.120
  • BECOME A SERIOUS STUDENT, EVERY SINGLE TIME.
  • 00:25:05.140 --> 00:25:07.280
  • MOM, I'M GONNA NEED YOU TO TAKE ME, WHETHER IT
  • 00:25:08.000 --> 00:25:10.010
  • WAS TO WALGREENS, WHATEVER, I'M GONNA NEED
  • 00:25:10.030 --> 00:25:12.120
  • YOU TO TAKE ME TO THE STORE.
  • 00:25:12.140 --> 00:25:13.270
  • WHY? WHAT IS IT YOU NEED?
  • 00:25:13.290 --> 00:25:15.220
  • WELL I NEED A NEW BINDER.
  • 00:25:15.240 --> 00:25:17.140
  • AND BY THE TIME SHE LEFT FOR COLLEGE, UNDERSTAND
  • 00:25:17.160 --> 00:25:20.270
  • WITH ME THAT CHILD THEN WENT TO COLLEGE WHEN SHE
  • 00:25:20.290 --> 00:25:23.130
  • NO LONGER HAD BALL TO DISTRACT HER AND HER
  • 00:25:23.150 --> 00:25:25.240
  • GRADES WERE INCREDIBLE, AND SHE DID FINE BEFORE,
  • 00:25:25.260 --> 00:25:29.200
  • BUT WHAT I MEAN IS SHE JUST WAS GONNA PLAY BALL.
  • 00:25:29.220 --> 00:25:32.020
  • BUT WHEN SHE WENT TO COLLEGE AND I WENT BACK
  • 00:25:32.040 --> 00:25:34.160
  • TO CLEAN OUT SOME THINGS FROM HER CLOSET, NOT HER
  • 00:25:34.180 --> 00:25:37.210
  • STUFF BUT JUST TRASH, THINGS THAT NEEDED TO BE
  • 00:25:37.230 --> 00:25:40.120
  • THROWN OUT, I COULD NOT TOUCH THOSE BINDERS.
  • 00:25:40.140 --> 00:25:42.230
  • AND THERE WERE AT LEAST 20 OF THEM.
  • 00:25:42.250 --> 00:25:44.290
  • AT LEAST 20 OF THEM.
  • 00:25:45.010 --> 00:25:46.230
  • WHERE WE JUST STARTED OVER AND OVER AND OVER
  • 00:25:46.250 --> 00:25:49.110
  • AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER.
  • 00:25:49.130 --> 00:25:51.230
  • AND TO ME, IT'S SUCH A PICTURE OF JESUS BECAUSE
  • 00:25:51.250 --> 00:25:56.250
  • WE DO GET TO START OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER.
  • 00:25:56.270 --> 00:26:01.110
  • AND I DON'T KNOW WHO ELSE NEEDED THIS, BUT IN THE
  • 00:26:01.130 --> 00:26:03.290
  • WORST WAY I NEEDED NEW BEGINNINGS, I NEEDED NEW
  • 00:26:04.010 --> 00:26:08.170
  • STARTS, AND I NEEDED A CHANCE FOR A NEW BINDER
  • 00:26:08.190 --> 00:26:11.150
  • OVER AND OVER.
  • 00:26:11.170 --> 00:26:13.030
  • SOMETIMES WHEN I WAS GOING THROUGH, I HAD SUCH
  • 00:26:13.050 --> 00:26:15.280
  • A WOBBLY WALK AND DEPARTED THE PATH SO MANY
  • 00:26:16.000 --> 00:26:22.210
  • TIMES AND JUST TUMBLED IN THE DITCH, AND SO OFTEN
  • 00:26:22.230 --> 00:26:27.240
  • I WOULD EVEN START A NEW JOURNAL.
  • 00:26:27.260 --> 00:26:30.010
  • I WOULD THINK I KNOW I NEED TO START ALL OVER
  • 00:26:30.030 --> 00:26:32.020
  • WITH BRAND CLEAN PAGES.
  • 00:26:32.040 --> 00:26:34.070
  • AND SOONER OR LATER, THEN I'D ALSO BE WRITING DOWN
  • 00:26:34.090 --> 00:26:37.010
  • SOMETHING IN THAT JOURNAL THAT I WAS NOT HAPPY
  • 00:26:37.030 --> 00:26:39.230
  • ABOUT THAT I REGRETTED, BUT GOD WAS ALWAYS THERE
  • 00:26:39.250 --> 00:26:42.200
  • FOR ME. ALWAYS GIVING ME A BRAND-NEW START, ALWAYS
  • 00:26:42.220 --> 00:26:45.130
  • FEELING LIKE I COULD GO BACK AT IT AGAIN AND THAT
  • 00:26:45.150 --> 00:26:48.150
  • THE SLATE WAS CLEAN.
  • 00:26:48.170 --> 00:26:50.110
  • I JUST DON'T KNOW WHERE WE WOULD BE
  • 00:26:50.130 --> 00:26:52.120
  • IF WE DID NOT KNOW THAT.
  • 00:26:52.140 --> 00:26:54.070
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:26:54.090 --> 00:26:58.120
  • SO IF WE DON'T DEMONSTRATE THAT, IF
  • 00:26:58.140 --> 00:27:03.080
  • WE'RE NOT FORGIVING WITH OUR CHILDREN, IF THAT
  • 00:27:03.100 --> 00:27:06.100
  • SLATE DOESN'T GET TO BE CLEAN WITH US, IF WE'RE
  • 00:27:06.120 --> 00:27:10.210
  • THE KIND OF PARENT THAT IS VERY PUNISHING,
  • 00:27:10.230 --> 00:27:14.180
  • I THINK WE HAVE TO BE SO CAREFUL, EVEN IN OUR
  • 00:27:14.200 --> 00:27:17.240
  • DISCIPLINE, AND I'M TELLING YOU WHEN THEY'VE
  • 00:27:17.260 --> 00:27:20.240
  • MESSED UP, AND I'M ALL FOR AND I WAS WHEN I WAS
  • 00:27:20.260 --> 00:27:23.240
  • RAISING THEM, I WASN'T THEIR BUDDY, I WAS THEIR
  • 00:27:23.260 --> 00:27:26.220
  • MOM, AND SO WE WOULD HAVE TO FIGURE OUT THIS
  • 00:27:26.240 --> 00:27:30.280
  • PRIVILEGE IS GONNA HAVE TO BE WITHHELD, THIS IS
  • 00:27:31.000 --> 00:27:34.060
  • HOW WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO DO THIS, BUT WHAT I HAD
  • 00:27:34.080 --> 00:27:37.290
  • TO BE CAREFUL ABOUT OUR TENDENCY IS JUST IN OUR
  • 00:27:38.010 --> 00:27:42.090
  • NATURAL PERSON TO BE PUNISHING TO SOMEONE
  • 00:27:42.110 --> 00:27:44.080
  • WHO'S REALLY BLOWN IT, ESPECIALLY IF WE'VE TOLD
  • 00:27:44.100 --> 00:27:47.190
  • THEM AND TOLD AND TOLD THEM AND TOLD THEM.
  • 00:27:47.210 --> 00:27:50.290
  • I DON'T KNOW IF THIS WAS YOUR SITUATION, SISTERS,
  • 00:27:51.010 --> 00:27:54.020
  • BUT I CAN REMEMBER SO MANY TIMES IN MY HOME
  • 00:27:54.040 --> 00:27:56.240
  • WHEN I WOULD HAVE SAID IT QUIETLY THE FIRST FIFTEEN
  • 00:27:56.260 --> 00:28:00.120
  • TIMES AND THEN I FINALLY SAID GET DOWNSTAIRS!
  • 00:28:00.140 --> 00:28:04.020
  • THEY'D GO YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO YELL.
  • 00:28:04.040 --> 00:28:05.100
  • I DID NOT YET THE FIRST 14 TIMES.
  • 00:28:05.120 --> 00:28:08.140
  • [LAUGHTER] YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING?
  • 00:28:08.160 --> 00:28:10.170
  • BUT WHAT CAN HAPPEN IS THAT THIS, WE CAN HAVE
  • 00:28:10.190 --> 00:28:14.220
  • ALL SORTS OF WAYS THAT WE GO COLD ON THEM,
  • 00:28:14.240 --> 00:28:19.190
  • PUNISH THEM FOR DISAPPOINTING US.
  • 00:28:19.210 --> 00:28:23.100
  • I JUST CANNOT SAY ENOUGH TO SOMEBODY THAT IS
  • 00:28:23.120 --> 00:28:26.160
  • STARTING OUT OR YOUR KIDS ARE STILL IN THE HOME,
  • 00:28:26.180 --> 00:28:29.250
  • THERE'S A NEW CHANCE TODAY TO START AGAIN
  • 00:28:29.270 --> 00:28:33.080
  • WHERE THAT'S CONCERNED BECAUSE WE CERTAINLY DO
  • 00:28:33.100 --> 00:28:36.280
  • WANT THERE TO BE WISE PARAMETERS.
  • 00:28:37.000 --> 00:28:41.120
  • WE CERTAINLY DO WANT THERE TO BE WAYS THAT WE
  • 00:28:41.140 --> 00:28:44.020
  • DISCIPLINE WHEN A KID IS GOING LEFT ON US.
  • 00:28:44.040 --> 00:28:49.180
  • BUT WHAT WE DON'T WANT TO DO IS WITHHOLD AFFECTION
  • 00:28:49.200 --> 00:28:54.010
  • AND WITHHOLD WARMTH AND LOVE.
  • 00:28:54.030 --> 00:28:58.260
  • I FEEL LIKE ESPECIALLY IF A KID FEELS SHAMED,
  • 00:28:58.280 --> 00:29:03.220
  • THAT'S THE TIME, MAYBE MORE THAN ANY OTHER THAT
  • 00:29:03.240 --> 00:29:06.230
  • YOU PULL THAT KID IN TO YOUR ARMS, INTO YOUR LAP.
  • 00:29:06.250 --> 00:29:11.130
  • BOTH OF MY DAUGHTERS OUTGREW ME IN HEIGHT.
  • 00:29:11.150 --> 00:29:15.210
  • BOTH OF THEM.
  • 00:29:15.230 --> 00:29:16.290
  • EVERY NOW AND THEN, I'D STAND ON THE BOTTOM STEP
  • 00:29:17.010 --> 00:29:19.050
  • OF OUR HOME, WE HAD A TWO STORY HOME AND I WOULD
  • 00:29:19.070 --> 00:29:21.080
  • STAND ON THE BOTTOM STAIR AND GO COME HERE TO ME
  • 00:29:21.100 --> 00:29:22.250
  • RIGHT NOW SO THAT I COULD BE BIGGER THAN THEM AND
  • 00:29:22.270 --> 00:29:25.020
  • PUT MY ARMS AROUND THEM BECAUSE THEY JUST, THEY
  • 00:29:25.040 --> 00:29:28.180
  • NEED THE SAFETY OF KNOWING THERE'S NOTHING
  • 00:29:28.200 --> 00:29:32.140
  • I CAN DO TO MAKE YOU NOT LOVE ME.
  • 00:29:32.160 --> 00:29:35.240
  • SO WE'RE DEMONSTRATING.
  • 00:29:35.260 --> 00:29:38.020
  • WE'RE HOPING TO TEACH THEM THAT FROM THE WORD
  • 00:29:38.040 --> 00:29:40.160
  • ABOUT GOD, BUT IF THEY CAN'T SEE ANY OF THAT IN
  • 00:29:40.180 --> 00:29:44.070
  • US, AND CHANCES ARE IF THAT'S US, IF OUR WAY IS
  • 00:29:44.090 --> 00:29:49.060
  • PUNISHING, IF WE HAVE A HARD TIME FORGIVING, IN
  • 00:29:49.080 --> 00:29:53.180
  • ALL LIKELIHOOD WE SEE GOD THAT WAY WITH US, THAT
  • 00:29:53.200 --> 00:29:58.130
  • WE'RE PASSING DOWN WHAT WE FEEL HAS BEEN THE WAY
  • 00:29:58.150 --> 00:30:02.080
  • THAT WE'VE BEEN DEALT WITH, SO I JUST ENCOURAGE
  • 00:30:02.100 --> 00:30:06.020
  • SOMEBODY TO LET GOD BRING HEALING TO THAT HEART AND
  • 00:30:06.040 --> 00:30:10.280
  • KNOW THAT HE IS NOT PUNISHING, AND HE IS NOT
  • 00:30:11.000 --> 00:30:16.060
  • ANGRY AT US AND MAD AT US FOR OUR MISTAKES, AND
  • 00:30:16.080 --> 00:30:21.080
  • THAT GRACE IS TO BE RESTORED AND FORGIVEN AND
  • 00:30:21.100 --> 00:30:24.250
  • WE'RE DEMONSTRATING THAT AS HARD AS
  • 00:30:24.270 --> 00:30:26.260
  • IT MAY BE AT TIMES.
  • 00:30:26.280 --> 00:30:28.190
  • - DON'T YOU THINK ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE HAVE
  • 00:30:28.210 --> 00:30:31.080
  • TO BE AS PARENTS IS NOT PRIDEFUL.
  • 00:30:31.100 --> 00:30:34.180
  • - ABSOLUTELY. EXPOUND ON THAT.
  • 00:30:34.200 --> 00:30:37.000
  • - WELL, IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN, YOU CANNOT BE PRIDEFUL.
  • 00:30:37.020 --> 00:30:40.180
  • I THINK MANY TIMES WE DISCIPLINE OUR CHILDREN
  • 00:30:40.200 --> 00:30:43.200
  • OUT OF OUR OWN PRIDE, OR EITHER WE WANT THEM TO BE
  • 00:30:43.220 --> 00:30:48.080
  • PERFECT, OR THEY'VE HURT OUR FEELINGS, THEY'RE NOT
  • 00:30:48.100 --> 00:30:50.170
  • DOING WHAT WE WANT THEM TO DO, SO THERE'S A
  • 00:30:50.190 --> 00:30:53.160
  • MULTITUDE OF THINGS THAT ARE REALLY OUR PRIDE.
  • 00:30:53.180 --> 00:30:57.280
  • AND I THINK MANY TIMES I KNOW WITH MY CHILDREN,
  • 00:30:58.000 --> 00:30:59.240
  • I'VE HAD TO TELL MYSELF, AND SOMETIMES THERE IS NO
  • 00:30:59.260 --> 00:31:05.000
  • IN THE HEAT OF THE MOMENT, THERE IS NO RESOLUTION.
  • 00:31:05.020 --> 00:31:09.160
  • SOMETIMES YOU JUST HAVE TO DISTRACT YOURSELF,
  • 00:31:09.180 --> 00:31:12.170
  • DISTRACT YOUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:31:12.190 --> 00:31:14.100
  • WHEN THAT LITTLE CHILD WON'T COME, SOMETIMES IT'S
  • 00:31:14.120 --> 00:31:16.270
  • LIKE LOOK AT THESE BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:31:16.290 --> 00:31:19.250
  • AND A DISTRACTION BECAUSE SOMETIMES IT BECOMES PRIDEFUL.
  • 00:31:19.270 --> 00:31:23.210
  • YOU'RE GONNA DO WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO NO MATTER WHAT.
  • 00:31:23.230 --> 00:31:26.150
  • AND I REALLY FEEL LIKE THAT MANY TIMES THAT'S
  • 00:31:26.170 --> 00:31:29.050
  • HOW WE CAN DEAL WITH OUR CHILDREN IF WE'RE NOT CAREFUL.
  • 00:31:29.070 --> 00:31:31.180
  • GOD DOESN'T DEAL WITH US IN A PRIDEFUL MANNER.
  • 00:31:31.200 --> 00:31:34.130
  • GOD IS, HE LOOKS AT US AS LOVE LIKE YOU WERE
  • 00:31:34.150 --> 00:31:38.220
  • SAYING, HE'S A LOVING, KIND GOD.
  • 00:31:38.240 --> 00:31:40.160
  • HE'S NOT A PRIDEFUL GOD.
  • 00:31:40.180 --> 00:31:42.190
  • HE DOESN'T DEAL WITH US ACCORDING TO HIS PRIDE.
  • 00:31:42.210 --> 00:31:45.180
  • HE DEALS WITH US ACCORDING TO HIS LOVE.
  • 00:31:45.200 --> 00:31:48.050
  • AND I THINK WHEN WE LOOK AT OUR CHILDREN-- AND
  • 00:31:48.070 --> 00:31:50.110
  • IT'S NOT ABOUT WELL IF YOU HAVE TEENAGE
  • 00:31:50.130 --> 00:31:52.050
  • CHILDREN, YOU CAN RAISE YOUR HAND RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:31:52.070 --> 00:31:54.030
  • THEY'RE GONNA SAY MOM, WHY ARE YOU WEARING THAT?
  • 00:31:54.050 --> 00:31:59.050
  • YOU KNOW. AND YOU CAN BE OFFENDED. IT NEVER GOES AWAY.
  • 00:31:59.070 --> 00:32:03.120
  • AND IT COMES IN MANY DIFFERENT FORMS.
  • 00:32:03.140 --> 00:32:05.080
  • AND I FIND MYSELF REALLY HAVING TO WATCH HOW I
  • 00:32:05.100 --> 00:32:08.220
  • DEAL WITH MY CHILDREN NOW THEY'RE GROWN, HOW TO
  • 00:32:08.240 --> 00:32:11.290
  • LISTEN TO THEM, HOW TO ALLOW THEM TO HAVE AN OPINION.
  • 00:32:12.010 --> 00:32:16.000
  • NOT DO IT MY WAY BECAUSE I'M YOUR MOTHER, IT'S JUST
  • 00:32:16.020 --> 00:32:18.150
  • THE WAY WE'VE DONE IT, THIS IS THE WAY YOU
  • 00:32:18.170 --> 00:32:20.050
  • SHOULD DO IT, BUT TO BE OPEN AND WATCH MY WORDS
  • 00:32:20.070 --> 00:32:23.250
  • AND TO NOT BE PRIDEFUL BECAUSE I'M OLDER THAN
  • 00:32:23.270 --> 00:32:26.160
  • YOU ARE, DON'T YOU KNOW THAT I'VE LIVED LONGER
  • 00:32:26.180 --> 00:32:29.020
  • THAN YOU, BUT TO REALLY GIVE THEM ROOM TO BE
  • 00:32:29.040 --> 00:32:32.190
  • INDIVIDUALS, THE INDIVIDUALS THAT I HOPE
  • 00:32:32.210 --> 00:32:34.220
  • THAT I'VE MODELED FOR THEM TO BE.
  • 00:32:34.240 --> 00:32:36.220
  • THEY'RE NOT GONNA BE ME.
  • 00:32:36.240 --> 00:32:38.100
  • BUT I THINK SOMETIMES DON'T YOU THINK THAT WE
  • 00:32:38.120 --> 00:32:40.090
  • DEAL IN PRIDE?
  • 00:32:40.110 --> 00:32:42.010
  • IF WE'LL JUST TAKE A MINUTE TO STEP BACK AND
  • 00:32:42.030 --> 00:32:44.030
  • SAY OKAY, WHAT'S GOING ON WITH ME RIGHT NOW?
  • 00:32:44.050 --> 00:32:46.260
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:32:46.280 --> 00:32:48.050
  • I THINK THIS IS A REALLY GOOD TIME TO BUILD ON
  • 00:32:48.070 --> 00:32:49.260
  • THAT IDEA, AS YOU WERE DESCRIBING THAT I WAS
  • 00:32:49.280 --> 00:32:52.000
  • THINKING HOW OFTEN IN PARENTING WE GET
  • 00:32:52.020 --> 00:32:55.240
  • FRUSTRATED BECAUSE WE WANT OUR KIDS TO ACT LIKE
  • 00:32:55.260 --> 00:32:59.230
  • SOMEONE ELSE'S KIDS, OR TO EXCEL IN THE WAY THAT
  • 00:32:59.250 --> 00:33:03.110
  • SOMEBODY ELSE'S KID EXCELS, AND PLAY SPORTS,
  • 00:33:03.130 --> 00:33:08.220
  • MAKE THE GRADES, GET THE ACCOLADES, WHATEVER.
  • 00:33:08.240 --> 00:33:10.260
  • THAT IS ALSO A FORM OF PRIDE IN PARENTING.
  • 00:33:10.280 --> 00:33:14.090
  • EVEN IN YOUR HOME, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I HAD TO
  • 00:33:14.110 --> 00:33:18.190
  • LEARN ALONG THE WAY, ANY OF US WHO HAVE HAD MORE
  • 00:33:18.210 --> 00:33:21.070
  • THAN ONE KID KNOW THAT THEY ARE AS DIFFERENT,
  • 00:33:21.090 --> 00:33:25.020
  • IT'S SO DIFFERENT THAT IT SEEMS LIKE HOW IN THE
  • 00:33:25.040 --> 00:33:27.150
  • WORLD COULD YOU HAVE COME UP IN THE SAME HOME AND
  • 00:33:27.170 --> 00:33:31.210
  • COME FROM THE SAME PARENTS?
  • 00:33:31.230 --> 00:33:33.120
  • I DON'T KNOW HOW THIS HAPPENED.
  • 00:33:33.140 --> 00:33:35.030
  • BUT I LOVE THE PROVERBS THAT SAYS TRAIN UP A
  • 00:33:35.050 --> 00:33:38.140
  • CHILD IN THE WAY HE OR SHE,
  • 00:33:38.160 --> 00:33:41.250
  • NOT CHILDREN IN THE WAY THEY, HE OR SHE SHOULD GO.
  • 00:33:41.270 --> 00:33:45.000
  • AND FOR MY CHILDREN, THEY WERE SO DIFFERENT, AND I
  • 00:33:45.020 --> 00:33:48.050
  • DIDN'T LET THEM SEE ONE ANOTHER'S REPORT CARDS EVER.
  • 00:33:48.070 --> 00:33:52.180
  • I TRIED TO KEEP VERY SEPARATE THAT THEY WOULD
  • 00:33:52.200 --> 00:33:56.150
  • NOT BE IN COMPETITION WITH ONE ANOTHER AND THAT
  • 00:33:56.170 --> 00:34:00.050
  • THE EXPECTATIONS WOULD NOT BE FOR THEM SOMEHOW
  • 00:34:00.070 --> 00:34:04.120
  • TO BE A MIRROR IMAGE OF THE OTHER ONE'S VICTORIES.
  • 00:34:04.140 --> 00:34:09.170
  • I DIDN'T LIKE ANY OF THAT.
  • 00:34:09.190 --> 00:34:12.000
  • BUT I THINK THAT IT'S SO EASY TO DO THAT WE
  • 00:34:12.020 --> 00:34:14.220
  • COMPARE, AND ESPECIALLY IT WOULD TAKE SUCH A LOAD
  • 00:34:14.240 --> 00:34:20.080
  • OFF OF US JUST TO KNOW THAT'S THEIR KID, THESE
  • 00:34:20.100 --> 00:34:23.200
  • ARE MINE. THESE ARE THE ONES ENTRUSTED TO ME.
  • 00:34:23.220 --> 00:34:28.030
  • AND I DON'T NEED THEM TO ACT A CERTAIN WAY FOR ME
  • 00:34:28.050 --> 00:34:31.150
  • TO GET THE ESTEEM THAT I AM AFTER.
  • 00:34:31.170 --> 00:34:35.230
  • WE JUST PUT THAT TO DEATH AND LET'S RAISE SOME KIDS.
  • 00:34:35.250 --> 00:34:40.230
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:34:40.250 --> 00:34:45.040
  • - ONE OF THE THINGS THAT MY PARENTS TOLD ME WAS
  • 00:34:45.060 --> 00:34:47.230
  • THAT WHAT YOU DO OUT THERE IS A REFLECTION ON
  • 00:34:47.250 --> 00:34:51.050
  • WHAT HAPPENS INSIDE OUR HOME, SO WE WERE A
  • 00:34:51.070 --> 00:34:54.030
  • REFLECTION OF MY MOM AND DAD.
  • 00:34:54.050 --> 00:34:55.230
  • THAT WAS PRESSURE, YOU KNOW? TO BE THE EXAMPLE.
  • 00:34:55.250 --> 00:34:58.290
  • WE WERE THE PASTOR'S KIDS, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:34:59.010 --> 00:35:01.100
  • BUT THE AUTHENTICITY OF BEING THE SAME BECAUSE
  • 00:35:01.120 --> 00:35:05.010
  • MAN YOU HEAR SO MANY TESTIMONIES OF PEOPLE
  • 00:35:05.030 --> 00:35:08.230
  • THAT SAID I WAS RAISED IN THE PERFECT CHRISTIAN
  • 00:35:08.250 --> 00:35:12.100
  • HOME, BUT BOY WHEN WE GOT HOME BY OURSELVES,
  • 00:35:12.120 --> 00:35:15.030
  • THERE WAS ALL KINDS OF STUFF IN THOSE HOMES.
  • 00:35:15.050 --> 00:35:17.170
  • WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS FOR
  • 00:35:17.190 --> 00:35:21.100
  • YOUNG MOTHERS TODAY BECAUSE THIS IS A
  • 00:35:21.120 --> 00:35:24.010
  • DIFFERENT WORLD.
  • 00:35:24.030 --> 00:35:26.070
  • YOU'RE A GRAND MOM NOW.
  • 00:35:26.090 --> 00:35:28.180
  • - I AM.
  • 00:35:28.200 --> 00:35:30.060
  • - A VERY PROUD GRANDMOTHER.
  • 00:35:30.080 --> 00:35:31.190
  • - YES, I AM.
  • 00:35:31.210 --> 00:35:32.290
  • - HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH YOUR GRANDCHILDREN
  • 00:35:33.010 --> 00:35:34.180
  • DIFFERENTLY THAN YOU DID YOUR OWN BABIES?
  • 00:35:34.200 --> 00:35:36.260
  • - WELL, FOR ONE THING NOW WE HAVE A SCREEN
  • 00:35:36.280 --> 00:35:39.190
  • WORLD THAT HAS TO BE WATCHED IN A
  • 00:35:39.210 --> 00:35:42.110
  • WHOLE DIFFERENT WAY.
  • 00:35:42.130 --> 00:35:44.040
  • AND WHERE I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT A KID COULD
  • 00:35:44.060 --> 00:35:48.050
  • WALK IN THE OTHER ROOM WITH AN I-PAD, IT TOOK MY
  • 00:35:48.070 --> 00:35:52.080
  • DAUGHTER-- NOW THIS IS WHEN THEY WERE YOUNG
  • 00:35:52.100 --> 00:35:53.280
  • ENOUGH AND THEY WERE PLAYING GAMES ON IT.
  • 00:35:54.000 --> 00:35:55.240
  • IT TOOK MY DAUGHTER REMINDING ME BECAUSE SHE
  • 00:35:55.260 --> 00:35:57.250
  • IS A MOTHER IN THIS GENERATION OF KIDS UNDER
  • 00:35:57.270 --> 00:36:00.180
  • THE ROOF THAT ARE THREE AND TEN AND THIRTEEN, AND
  • 00:36:00.200 --> 00:36:03.260
  • THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN SEVERAL YEARS AGO THAT
  • 00:36:03.280 --> 00:36:05.140
  • SHE SAID REMEMBER MOTHER, SCREENS ONLY RIGHT
  • 00:36:05.160 --> 00:36:07.250
  • IN FRONT OF YOU.
  • 00:36:07.270 --> 00:36:09.030
  • I SAID OH, YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.
  • 00:36:09.050 --> 00:36:10.270
  • I SAID BABY, IT DID NOT OCCUR TO ME YET.
  • 00:36:10.290 --> 00:36:14.040
  • AND SHE SAID BUT MOM, WE WON'T KNOW THE MOMENT.
  • 00:36:14.060 --> 00:36:17.070
  • SHE SAID WE HAVE TO DO IT NOW BECAUSE WE WON'T KNOW
  • 00:36:17.090 --> 00:36:19.010
  • THE MOMENT WHEN IT CHANGES ENOUGH WHERE THEY
  • 00:36:19.030 --> 00:36:21.110
  • CAN GO CHASING DOWN SOME THINGS ON THAT SCREEN
  • 00:36:21.130 --> 00:36:23.270
  • THAT WE'RE NOT WATCHING.
  • 00:36:23.290 --> 00:36:26.010
  • SO THOSE KINDS OF THINGS ARE SO DIFFERENT TODAY.
  • 00:36:26.030 --> 00:36:30.010
  • HAVING TO MONITOR AND WATCH AFTER THE PREDATORS
  • 00:36:30.030 --> 00:36:35.020
  • ONLINE. LISTEN, I'M GONNA TELL YOU SOMETHING,
  • 00:36:35.040 --> 00:36:38.240
  • I WAS A NOSY MOTHER, AND I BELIEVE IN
  • 00:36:38.260 --> 00:36:44.130
  • BEING A NOSY MOTHER.
  • 00:36:44.150 --> 00:36:46.160
  • I DO. [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:36:46.180 --> 00:36:48.030
  • I DO.
  • 00:36:48.050 --> 00:36:49.130
  • LISTEN, I FELT LIKE ANY NOTE LEFT OUT WAS FOR ME.
  • 00:36:49.150 --> 00:36:55.240
  • I MEAN, I WOULD NOT NECESSARILY-- NOW, I CAN'T
  • 00:36:55.260 --> 00:36:59.020
  • TELL YOU THAT I WOULDN'T GO DIGGING BECAUSE IF I,
  • 00:36:59.040 --> 00:37:01.260
  • THERE'S NOTHING-- I WOULD HAVE TORN THROUGH WALLS
  • 00:37:01.280 --> 00:37:04.240
  • IF THAT'S WHAT IT TOOK IF I THOUGHT MY KID WAS
  • 00:37:04.260 --> 00:37:08.160
  • REALLY REALLY HEADED FOR DANGER.
  • 00:37:08.180 --> 00:37:10.180
  • I WOULD NOT THINK TWICE ABOUT THEM SAYING
  • 00:37:10.200 --> 00:37:13.040
  • "BUT MY PRIVACY!" OH, PLEASE.
  • 00:37:13.060 --> 00:37:15.120
  • YOU HAVE NO PRIVACY. YOU ARE AN ADOLESCENT.
  • 00:37:15.140 --> 00:37:19.120
  • AND THEY GO "YOU DON'T TRUST ME!"
  • 00:37:19.140 --> 00:37:20.280
  • OF COURSE I DON'T TRUST YOU, YOU THINK I'M CRAZY?
  • 00:37:21.000 --> 00:37:23.240
  • YOU CAN'T TRUST YOURSELF!
  • 00:37:23.260 --> 00:37:25.220
  • BUT I FELT LIKE THAT TO TRY TO READ INTO WHAT WAS
  • 00:37:25.240 --> 00:37:33.090
  • NOT BEING SAID WAS VERY IMPORTANT.
  • 00:37:33.110 --> 00:37:36.080
  • ONE OF THE THINGS, GET THEM TO TALK.
  • 00:37:36.100 --> 00:37:40.000
  • I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO.
  • 00:37:40.020 --> 00:37:43.050
  • AND SOMETIMES IT MEANS GOING SOMEWHERE.
  • 00:37:43.070 --> 00:37:45.030
  • FOR INSTANCE, I COULD GO WITH THE GIRLS SHOPPING.
  • 00:37:45.050 --> 00:37:47.240
  • WE WOULDN'T EVEN HAVE TO BUY ANYTHING, BUT
  • 00:37:47.260 --> 00:37:49.270
  • SOMEHOW, EVEN GOING THROUGH THE RACK, WE
  • 00:37:49.290 --> 00:37:52.120
  • COULD START HAVING CONVERSATIONS.
  • 00:37:52.140 --> 00:37:54.070
  • AND ALL OF THE SUDDEN, THEIR DEFENSES WERE DOWN,
  • 00:37:54.090 --> 00:37:56.080
  • AND I'D LEARN ALL SORTS OF THINGS.
  • 00:37:56.100 --> 00:37:57.190
  • I YOU CAR POOLED MY GIRLS.
  • 00:37:57.210 --> 00:37:59.240
  • I WOULD LEARN A HUNDRED THINGS I DID NOT KNOW ON
  • 00:37:59.260 --> 00:38:04.170
  • THE WAY TO SCHOOL FROM THEIR FRIENDS
  • 00:38:04.190 --> 00:38:06.170
  • ABOUT MY OWN KIDS.
  • 00:38:06.190 --> 00:38:08.030
  • I GO, OH, THIS IS SO INTERESTING.
  • 00:38:08.050 --> 00:38:10.010
  • AND I'D ACT LIKE I WAS JUST LISTENING TO THE
  • 00:38:10.030 --> 00:38:12.170
  • RADIO, AND I WAS ALL IN, AND I'D HAVE TO TURN IT
  • 00:38:12.190 --> 00:38:14.030
  • DOWN SOMETIMES AND LEAN IN.
  • 00:38:14.050 --> 00:38:16.180
  • BUT I WAS ALL ABOUT BEING NOSY AND TRYING TO
  • 00:38:16.200 --> 00:38:22.000
  • TELL WHAT SEEMS OFF?
  • 00:38:22.020 --> 00:38:24.090
  • I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT BEING CONTROLLING,
  • 00:38:24.110 --> 00:38:26.230
  • BUT LET'S ADMIT IT'S A FINE LINE.
  • 00:38:26.250 --> 00:38:29.110
  • IT'S A FINE LINE BECAUSE, MAN, YOU DO WANT TO BE
  • 00:38:29.130 --> 00:38:32.160
  • ALERT, VERY ALERT, TO WHAT THEIR MOOD TENDS TO
  • 00:38:32.180 --> 00:38:38.230
  • BE, WHEN IT GETS STUCK THERE, WHEN THEY'RE DOWN,
  • 00:38:38.250 --> 00:38:41.200
  • IF THEY'RE BEING BULLIED IN ANY WAY, IF THEY'VE
  • 00:38:41.220 --> 00:38:44.190
  • HAD A BROKEN FRIENDSHIP OR GETTING MADE FUN OF.
  • 00:38:44.210 --> 00:38:47.090
  • THESE ARE THINGS THAT WERE ALWAYS TRUE, BUT NOW
  • 00:38:47.110 --> 00:38:51.110
  • THEY'VE BEEN MAGNIFIED HOW MANY THOUSANDS OF
  • 00:38:51.130 --> 00:38:53.130
  • TIMES BECAUSE OF ONLINE DIFFERENT KINDS
  • 00:38:53.150 --> 00:38:57.040
  • OF SOCIAL MEDIA.
  • 00:38:57.060 --> 00:38:58.240
  • SO IT'S A WHOLE NEW WORLD, BUT WE DON'T HAVE
  • 00:38:58.260 --> 00:39:00.150
  • A WHOLE NEW GOD.
  • 00:39:00.170 --> 00:39:02.110
  • WE HAVE THE ANCIENT OF DAYS, THE ETERNAL GOD WHO
  • 00:39:02.130 --> 00:39:05.090
  • SET US IN EXACTLY THIS TIME IN HISTORY.
  • 00:39:05.110 --> 00:39:09.090
  • AND ONE OF THE THINGS I WANT TO TELL YOU IN PSALM
  • 00:39:09.110 --> 00:39:12.020
  • 25, THERE'S THIS WONDERFUL VERSE THAT SAYS
  • 00:39:12.040 --> 00:39:16.210
  • SAYS, "YOU WILL KEEP MY FEET OUT OF THE NET." I
  • 00:39:16.230 --> 00:39:20.050
  • AND I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW OFTEN I TAKE THESE
  • 00:39:20.070 --> 00:39:23.070
  • SCRIPTURES AND I PRAY THEM OVER MY FAMILY, THAT
  • 00:39:23.090 --> 00:39:26.170
  • WE WOULD NOT BE SEDUCED BY THE EVIL ONE, THAT WE
  • 00:39:26.190 --> 00:39:32.060
  • WOULD NOT BE CAUGHT IN A SNARE; WHEN THE ENEMY SET
  • 00:39:32.080 --> 00:39:36.260
  • A SNARE FOR ONE OF MY FAMILY MEMBERS, THAT HE
  • 00:39:36.280 --> 00:39:39.070
  • WOULD GET CAUGHT IN IT HIMSELF, THAT WE WOULD
  • 00:39:39.090 --> 00:39:41.270
  • NOT BE GULLIBLE, THAT WE WOULD BE, THAT MY KIDS
  • 00:39:41.290 --> 00:39:46.080
  • WOULD BE, WIDE EYED AND ALERT TO A LOT OF THE
  • 00:39:46.100 --> 00:39:49.040
  • THINGS THAT WERE GOING ON AROUND THEM,
  • 00:39:49.060 --> 00:39:51.190
  • AND THAT THEY WOULD BE OPEN WITH ME.
  • 00:39:51.210 --> 00:39:55.130
  • AND I HAD ONE SO OPEN THAT THERE WERE TIMES
  • 00:39:55.150 --> 00:39:58.190
  • THAT I THOUGHT, YOU KNOW, THERE IS "TOO OPEN".
  • 00:39:58.210 --> 00:40:01.040
  • THERE'S TOO OPEN, BUT I'LL TAKE TOO OPEN OVER
  • 00:40:01.060 --> 00:40:05.050
  • NOT OPEN ENOUGH.
  • 00:40:05.070 --> 00:40:06.250
  • SO IT'S JUST A CONSTANT NAVIGATING, ISN'T IT?
  • 00:40:06.270 --> 00:40:09.220
  • - I LOVE THE FACT -- I LIKE TO TALK ABOUT THAT
  • 00:40:09.240 --> 00:40:12.030
  • REALLY PRAYING THE WORD OF GOD OVER YOUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:40:12.050 --> 00:40:15.290
  • NO MATTER WHAT YOU SEE, NO MATTER WHAT'S GOING ON.
  • 00:40:16.010 --> 00:40:18.140
  • TALK ABOUT THAT A LITTLE BIT BECAUSE I THINK
  • 00:40:18.160 --> 00:40:20.080
  • THAT'S SO IMPORTANT.
  • 00:40:20.100 --> 00:40:22.230
  • THAT'S ONE WAY TO BE VIGILANT, NOT ONLY
  • 00:40:22.250 --> 00:40:24.220
  • THE COMMUNICATION.
  • 00:40:24.240 --> 00:40:26.080
  • I MEAN, I THINK WE SHOULD START COMMUNICATING WHEN
  • 00:40:26.100 --> 00:40:28.150
  • THEY'RE LITTLE AND JUST CONTINUE TO DO IT.
  • 00:40:28.170 --> 00:40:30.180
  • IT'S NOT FOREIGN TO THEM.
  • 00:40:30.200 --> 00:40:34.020
  • IT'S NOT LIKE THE DAY THEY WALK OUT THE DOOR TO
  • 00:40:34.040 --> 00:40:36.110
  • HAVE THEIR FIRST DATE, YOU WANT TO SIT DOWN AND
  • 00:40:36.130 --> 00:40:37.230
  • TALK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:40:37.250 --> 00:40:39.110
  • YOU'VE BEEN TALKING AND TALKING AND TALKING.
  • 00:40:39.130 --> 00:40:40.230
  • - YES.
  • 00:40:40.250 --> 00:40:42.110
  • - BUT I THINK THAT PRAYING, IF YOU THINK
  • 00:40:42.130 --> 00:40:44.120
  • THAT SOMETHING'S GOING ON WITH YOUR KIDS, FAST.
  • 00:40:44.140 --> 00:40:46.130
  • I'M TELLING YOU, THAT WILL BREAK SOME STUFF.
  • 00:40:46.150 --> 00:40:50.080
  • IT'S POWERFUL, IT'S POWERFUL.
  • 00:40:50.100 --> 00:40:52.180
  • - I DO NOT KNOW ANOTHER APPROACH ANY MORE
  • 00:40:52.200 --> 00:40:55.030
  • POWERFUL, AND I'M GOING TO TELL YOU SOMETHING.
  • 00:40:55.050 --> 00:40:57.000
  • THERE ARE SOME BATTLES THAT WE REALIZE, HMMM,
  • 00:40:57.020 --> 00:40:59.280
  • WE'VE PROBABLY GONE AS FAR AS WE'RE GOING TO BE
  • 00:41:00.020 --> 00:41:02.070
  • ABLE TO GO VERBALLY -- I'M TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:41:02.090 --> 00:41:04.060
  • WITH YOUR KIDS.
  • 00:41:04.080 --> 00:41:06.000
  • OKAY, I'M GOING TO HAVE TO REALLY PRESS INTO
  • 00:41:06.020 --> 00:41:08.100
  • FIGHTING THIS BATTLE IN THE HEAVENLIES.
  • 00:41:08.120 --> 00:41:10.160
  • THIS IS SO TRUE.
  • 00:41:10.180 --> 00:41:12.080
  • I WANT TO SAY THIS: THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE IF YOU
  • 00:41:12.100 --> 00:41:14.160
  • HAVE ADULT CHILDREN BECAUSE AT THIS POINT
  • 00:41:14.180 --> 00:41:16.270
  • NOW, YOU ARE OUT OF CONTROL.
  • 00:41:16.290 --> 00:41:19.190
  • YOU'RE NOT AT THE HELM OF IT ANYMORE, SO YOU'RE
  • 00:41:19.210 --> 00:41:23.010
  • WANTING STILL TO FIGHT BATTLES ON THEIR BEHALF
  • 00:41:23.030 --> 00:41:26.220
  • IN THE HEAVENLIES, AND YOU DO THAT THROUGH PRAYER.
  • 00:41:26.240 --> 00:41:29.200
  • AND SO I'M WITH VICTORIA A HUNDRED PERCENT.
  • 00:41:29.220 --> 00:41:32.030
  • I MEAN, TO THIS DAY, I EVEN HAVE RIGHT NOW
  • 00:41:32.050 --> 00:41:33.260
  • SEVERAL PAGES THAT ARE SCRIPTURES THAT I'VE
  • 00:41:33.280 --> 00:41:36.200
  • TURNED INTO PRAYERS FOR MY KIDS THAT I'LL PRAY
  • 00:41:36.220 --> 00:41:38.270
  • SEVERAL OF THEM AT A TIME.
  • 00:41:38.290 --> 00:41:40.270
  • AND I'LL JUST GO THROUGH THAT, AND THEN PRAY THEM
  • 00:41:40.290 --> 00:41:43.120
  • OVER AND OVER WHERE THERE IS SUCH POWER TO PUT
  • 00:41:43.140 --> 00:41:49.010
  • TOGETHER THOSE STICKS OF DYNAMITE.
  • 00:41:49.030 --> 00:41:50.220
  • SO IT'S LIKE TYING TOGETHER TWO
  • 00:41:50.240 --> 00:41:52.080
  • STICKS OF DYNAMITE.
  • 00:41:52.100 --> 00:41:53.280
  • THERE'S PRAYER AND THE WORD OF GOD, AND I'M
  • 00:41:54.000 --> 00:41:55.130
  • GOING PUT THEM TOGETHER, AND I'M GOING TO PRAY
  • 00:41:55.150 --> 00:41:57.040
  • THOSE THINGS OVER MY KIDS.
  • 00:41:57.060 --> 00:41:58.230
  • WHAT IS IT YOU WANT THEM TO END UP BEING LIKE?
  • 00:41:58.250 --> 00:42:01.050
  • WHAT KIND OF CHARACTER?
  • 00:42:01.070 --> 00:42:04.030
  • WHAT IS IT YOU HOPE FOR THEM?
  • 00:42:04.050 --> 00:42:06.210
  • FIND THAT IN THE SCRIPTURES.
  • 00:42:06.230 --> 00:42:08.110
  • START PRAISE GOD THAT.
  • 00:42:08.130 --> 00:42:10.070
  • FOR ME, THE NUMBER ONE THING, THE NUMBER ONE
  • 00:42:10.090 --> 00:42:14.110
  • THING, I WANT MY CHILDREN TO LOVE JESUS,
  • 00:42:14.130 --> 00:42:17.100
  • AND I WANT Y'ALL TO HEAR ME SAY SOMETHING.
  • 00:42:17.120 --> 00:42:19.060
  • I'M NOT JUST TRYING TO SOUND SPIRITUAL HERE.
  • 00:42:19.080 --> 00:42:22.060
  • I MEAN IT IN EVERY WAY BECAUSE IF THEY DO, OVER
  • 00:42:22.080 --> 00:42:27.060
  • AND OVER, IF YOU LOOK UP WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE LOVE
  • 00:42:27.080 --> 00:42:30.010
  • GOD, WE WILL PERSEVERE THROUGH DIFFICULTY, WE
  • 00:42:30.030 --> 00:42:33.180
  • WILL ALWAYS, ALWAYS WANT TO SEEK HOME AGAIN
  • 00:42:33.200 --> 00:42:40.130
  • WHEN WE'VE STRAYED.
  • 00:42:40.150 --> 00:42:42.040
  • WE WON'T BE ABLE TO LET THERE BE MUCH
  • 00:42:42.060 --> 00:42:44.250
  • DISTANCE BETWEEN US.
  • 00:42:44.270 --> 00:42:46.120
  • WE WILL FIND OUR JOY AGAIN.
  • 00:42:46.140 --> 00:42:48.120
  • THEY WILL SERVE HIM.
  • 00:42:48.140 --> 00:42:50.240
  • IF THEY LOVE HIM, THEY WILL SERVE HIM.
  • 00:42:50.260 --> 00:42:52.140
  • IF THEY LOVE HIM, THEY WILL ALSO FIND
  • 00:42:52.160 --> 00:42:54.230
  • SOME JOY IN HIM.
  • 00:42:54.250 --> 00:42:56.190
  • SO TO ME, THAT WAS MORE IMPORTANT THAN ANY AMOUNT
  • 00:42:56.210 --> 00:42:59.000
  • OF RULES, ANY AMOUNT OF -- LEGALISM JUST
  • 00:42:59.020 --> 00:43:04.290
  • WAS NOT MY THING.
  • 00:43:05.010 --> 00:43:06.170
  • IT WAS NOT THE WAY I WANTED IT TO GO DOWN.
  • 00:43:06.190 --> 00:43:08.230
  • I WANTED THEM TO BE ABLE TO SAY, MY MOM THOUGHT
  • 00:43:08.250 --> 00:43:14.100
  • THAT JESUS WAS THE BIGGEST BLAST
  • 00:43:14.120 --> 00:43:17.090
  • IN ALL OF LIFE.
  • 00:43:17.110 --> 00:43:18.240
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:43:18.260 --> 00:43:21.150
  • SHE ENJOYED HIM, AND I WANT WHAT SHE'S GOT.
  • 00:43:21.170 --> 00:43:28.280
  • I WANTED IT TO BE THAT WAY SO BADLY.
  • 00:43:29.000 --> 00:43:30.280
  • YOU KNOW, YOU CAN'T ALWAYS, THAT'S NOT ALWAYS
  • 00:43:31.000 --> 00:43:33.160
  • THE WAY IT GETS TO GO DOWN BECAUSE SOMETIMES,
  • 00:43:33.180 --> 00:43:35.290
  • YOU DON'T GET THE LUXURY OF JUST BEING, OH, WHERE
  • 00:43:36.010 --> 00:43:39.110
  • IT'S JUST SO HAPPY AND ENTHUSIASTIC TODAY.
  • 00:43:39.130 --> 00:43:41.110
  • SOME DAYS AND SOME SEASONS ARE HARD, BUT
  • 00:43:41.130 --> 00:43:43.220
  • THAT THEY WOULD KNOW THAT THAT WOULD CARRY THEM
  • 00:43:43.240 --> 00:43:46.220
  • THROUGH ANYTHING.
  • 00:43:46.240 --> 00:43:48.130
  • AND I KNEW THAT IF, FOR ANY REASON, I DIDN'T SEE
  • 00:43:48.150 --> 00:43:51.220
  • THEM TO ADULTHOOD, IF THEY LOVED HIM, IF THEY
  • 00:43:51.240 --> 00:43:54.020
  • LOVED HIM, I KNEW THEY WILL MAKE IT.
  • 00:43:54.040 --> 00:43:57.010
  • THEY WILL MAKE IT.
  • 00:43:57.030 --> 00:43:58.200
  • THEIR PATH MIGHT BE DIFFICULT, BUT THEY'LL
  • 00:43:58.220 --> 00:44:00.220
  • MAKE IT, THEY'LL MAKE IT.
  • 00:44:00.240 --> 00:44:02.110
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:44:02.130 --> 00:44:05.020
  • - YOU KNOW I THINK ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT
  • 00:44:05.040 --> 00:44:07.200
  • THINGS FOR ME AS A MOM IS THAT YOUR CHILDREN ARE
  • 00:44:07.220 --> 00:44:12.290
  • ALWAYS WATCHING YOU, AND THE THING THAT I'VE
  • 00:44:13.010 --> 00:44:18.160
  • WANTED TO ENCOURAGE MOMS IS WHEN WE GO THROUGH
  • 00:44:18.180 --> 00:44:21.010
  • STUFF AS ADULTS, IT'S NOT JUST CHILDREN.
  • 00:44:21.030 --> 00:44:23.160
  • THEY THINK THAT DRAMA KIND OF SURROUNDS THEM,
  • 00:44:23.180 --> 00:44:26.170
  • BUT THE PARENTS, I MEAN, DRAMA SURROUNDS ALL OF US
  • 00:44:26.190 --> 00:44:29.220
  • EVERY DAY, AND WE'RE CONSTANTLY WALKING IN
  • 00:44:29.240 --> 00:44:34.100
  • FAITH AND MOVING IN GOD AND TRYING TO DO OUR PART
  • 00:44:34.120 --> 00:44:37.050
  • IN THE KINGDOM AND WHATEVER.
  • 00:44:37.070 --> 00:44:38.290
  • BUT FOR US TO SHOW OUR CHILDREN HOW TO DO IT AND
  • 00:44:39.010 --> 00:44:42.280
  • TO LIVE WELL AND TO SHOW THEM THAT LIFE OF FAITH
  • 00:44:43.000 --> 00:44:48.040
  • BECAUSE I CAN GLEAN -- I LOOK AT MY FOLKS.
  • 00:44:48.060 --> 00:44:52.050
  • MY MOM AND DAD AND MY IN-LAWS, AND WATCHING
  • 00:44:52.070 --> 00:44:55.210
  • THEM THROUGH THE YEARS, I MEAN, THERE'S PROBABLY
  • 00:44:55.230 --> 00:44:58.160
  • NOT A DAY THAT GOES BY, EVEN TODAY, THAT I DON'T
  • 00:44:58.180 --> 00:45:02.070
  • THINK, I WONDER WHAT MAMA JAN WOULD DO, OR I WONDER
  • 00:45:02.090 --> 00:45:04.250
  • WHAT MY DAD WOULD SAY.
  • 00:45:04.270 --> 00:45:06.280
  • AND IF WE CAN JUST BE CONSCIOUS THAT LITTLE
  • 00:45:07.000 --> 00:45:12.020
  • EYEBALLS ARE WATCHING US DO LIFE AND TO SHOW FAITH
  • 00:45:12.040 --> 00:45:16.260
  • STRONG AND SHOW THEM HOW TO STAND
  • 00:45:16.280 --> 00:45:20.210
  • WHEN THERE'S STORMS.
  • 00:45:20.230 --> 00:45:22.260
  • EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO GO CRY IN THE CLOSET, I'M
  • 00:45:22.280 --> 00:45:25.210
  • NOT SAYING THAT YOU DON'T CRY IN FRONT OF YOUR
  • 00:45:25.230 --> 00:45:27.210
  • KIDS, BUT BREAKDOWN SOMEWHERE ELSE.
  • 00:45:27.230 --> 00:45:29.140
  • DON'T BREAKDOWN IN FRONT OF YOUR KIDS.
  • 00:45:29.160 --> 00:45:31.200
  • GO BREAKDOWN BY YOURSELF AND GET BEFORE GOD, BUT
  • 00:45:31.220 --> 00:45:36.040
  • THEN SHOW YOUR CHILDREN WHAT YOU'RE DOING
  • 00:45:36.060 --> 00:45:38.210
  • TOGETHER AND WALKING A LIFE OF FAITH, AND SHOW
  • 00:45:38.230 --> 00:45:40.150
  • THEM HOW TO DO IT.
  • 00:45:40.170 --> 00:45:42.100
  • I THINK THAT'S SO POWERFUL, AND I GLEAN
  • 00:45:42.120 --> 00:45:44.280
  • FROM WATCHING MY IN-LAWS AND MY FAMILY GO THROUGH
  • 00:45:45.000 --> 00:45:49.140
  • THINGS, AND THEY SAW MIRACLES.
  • 00:45:49.160 --> 00:45:51.180
  • THEY SAW MOUNTAINS MOVE IN THEIR DAY OF THINGS,
  • 00:45:51.200 --> 00:45:55.230
  • AND I JUST THINK THAT'S SO IMPORTANT FOR US TODAY.
  • 00:45:55.250 --> 00:45:58.050
  • - I THINK SO, TOO, AND I THINK, TOO, NEVER LOSE
  • 00:45:58.070 --> 00:46:01.200
  • SIGHT OF THE FACT THAT NOTHING IS TOO
  • 00:46:01.220 --> 00:46:04.090
  • DIFFICULT FOR GOD.
  • 00:46:04.110 --> 00:46:06.050
  • - GOD'S IN CONTROL.
  • 00:46:06.070 --> 00:46:07.280
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:46:08.000 --> 00:46:09.270
  • - I'VE HEARD KEITH TELL THIS SO MANY TIMES, THAT
  • 00:46:09.290 --> 00:46:15.150
  • HE HAD REALLY ASKED GOD, WE FELT SO MESSED UP THAT
  • 00:46:15.170 --> 00:46:18.230
  • WE THOUGHT, WELL, MAYBE BY THE THIRD OR FOURTH
  • 00:46:18.250 --> 00:46:21.130
  • GENERATION, IT WILL BE BETTER IN OUR FAMILY.
  • 00:46:21.150 --> 00:46:25.070
  • THAT IS OUR WRECKED WE FELT, AND THEN TO SEE OUR
  • 00:46:25.090 --> 00:46:29.280
  • CHILDREN NOT MAKE SOME OF SAME POOR CHOICES THAT WE
  • 00:46:30.000 --> 00:46:34.270
  • MADE WAS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL THING BECAUSE WE GOT TO
  • 00:46:34.290 --> 00:46:38.200
  • SEE, OH, MY GOODNESS, HE DID IT SO MUCH EARLIER
  • 00:46:38.220 --> 00:46:40.280
  • THAN WE BELIEVED HIM TO.
  • 00:46:41.000 --> 00:46:44.020
  • HE HAS PERFORMED MIRACLES, AND YOU KNOW,
  • 00:46:44.040 --> 00:46:47.020
  • FOR US, WE DID NOT HAVE THE LUXURY OF ACTING LIKE
  • 00:46:47.040 --> 00:46:50.180
  • WE HAD IT ALL TOGETHER BECAUSE KEITH AND I,
  • 00:46:50.200 --> 00:46:52.270
  • BETWEEN US, WE HAD DIFFICULTIES,
  • 00:46:52.290 --> 00:46:57.040
  • AND WE HAD PROBLEMS.
  • 00:46:57.060 --> 00:46:59.110
  • SO THEY WEREN'T GETTING RAISED IN A VACUUM OF
  • 00:46:59.130 --> 00:47:03.070
  • PERFECT STABILITY.
  • 00:47:03.090 --> 00:47:08.010
  • THEY COULD SEE THAT THERE WERE A LOT OF
  • 00:47:08.030 --> 00:47:11.010
  • DIFFICULTIES THAT WE WERE NAVIGATING IN
  • 00:47:11.030 --> 00:47:13.160
  • OUR OWN MARRIAGE.
  • 00:47:13.180 --> 00:47:15.150
  • AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I JUST THINK, AND
  • 00:47:15.170 --> 00:47:17.230
  • I'M JUST WONDERING WHEN MIGHT BE WATCHING OR
  • 00:47:17.250 --> 00:47:20.050
  • LISTENING THAT NEEDS TO HEAR THIS, THAT GETS TO
  • 00:47:20.070 --> 00:47:23.000
  • SPEAK INTO THE LIVES OF FAMILIES, ONE OF THE
  • 00:47:23.020 --> 00:47:25.170
  • THINGS THAT I FIND FRUSTRATING SOMETIMES IS
  • 00:47:25.190 --> 00:47:28.050
  • THAT WE'LL HAVE FAMILY CONFERENCES, AND THEY'LL
  • 00:47:28.070 --> 00:47:31.180
  • BE PRIMARILY ABOUT LIKE HOW TO HAVE THE BEST
  • 00:47:31.200 --> 00:47:35.080
  • FAMILY DEVOTIONS.
  • 00:47:35.100 --> 00:47:37.110
  • NOW, PLEASE DON'T MISUNDERSTAND ME.
  • 00:47:37.130 --> 00:47:39.270
  • I'M SO GLAD Y'ALL ARE LAUGHING.
  • 00:47:39.290 --> 00:47:40.010
  • I DIDN'T KNOW IF THIS WOULD BE OFFENSIVE.
  • 00:47:41.160 --> 00:47:43.200
  • I'M LIKE, FAMILY DEVOTIONS?
  • 00:47:43.220 --> 00:47:45.250
  • WE'RE TRYING TO STAY MARRIED UNTIL THE WEEKEND.
  • 00:47:45.270 --> 00:47:48.040
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:47:48.060 --> 00:47:50.160
  • CAN ANYBODY GO WITH ME? WHAT DO YOU MEAN?
  • 00:47:50.180 --> 00:47:52.290
  • I WOULD HAVE LIKED TO HAVE HAD THAT.
  • 00:47:53.010 --> 00:47:55.080
  • THAT WASN'T OUR DYNAMIC.
  • 00:47:55.100 --> 00:47:57.270
  • WE WERE TRYING TO SURVIVE, AND YOU KNOW,
  • 00:47:57.290 --> 00:48:02.090
  • WHAT I REALIZE NOW THAT I DID NOT REALIZE RAISING
  • 00:48:02.110 --> 00:48:06.030
  • MY FAMILY BECAUSE KEITH AND I WERE MESSED UP
  • 00:48:06.050 --> 00:48:11.170
  • ENOUGH TO HAVE TO LOVE VERY HONESTLY, I'M
  • 00:48:11.190 --> 00:48:14.020
  • THINKING THAT WE ARE THE ONLY ONES THAT ARE MESSED
  • 00:48:14.040 --> 00:48:17.070
  • UP LIKE THIS BECAUSE NOBODY ELSE SEEMS TO BE
  • 00:48:17.090 --> 00:48:19.190
  • OWNING UP TO IT.
  • 00:48:19.210 --> 00:48:22.050
  • WELL, I FIND OUT LATER THEY WERE NEARLY AS
  • 00:48:22.070 --> 00:48:24.150
  • MESSED UP AS WE WERE.
  • 00:48:24.170 --> 00:48:26.210
  • EVERY NOW AND THEN, I WOULD COME BACK TO KEITH
  • 00:48:26.230 --> 00:48:28.180
  • AND GO, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:48:28.200 --> 00:48:30.180
  • THEY LOOKED DOWN ON US, AND THEY HAD THE SAME
  • 00:48:30.200 --> 00:48:33.060
  • PROBLEMS THAT WE HAD.
  • 00:48:33.080 --> 00:48:35.130
  • BUT WE FELT SO INDICTED BY THEM, AND TO JUST GET
  • 00:48:35.150 --> 00:48:39.230
  • OUT FROM UNDER THAT.

  • GOLLY, YOU WILL NOT MAKE IT IN YOUR PARENTING IF
  • 00:48:41.120 --> 00:48:46.180
  • YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN GRACE.
  • 00:48:46.200 --> 00:48:49.010
  • HOW WOULD WE MAKE IT?
