Reporter: LAURA ADAMS

WAS SUCCESSFUL AND

INDEPENDENT.

SHE HAD HER M.B.A., AND A

SUCCESSFUL CAREER AS A VIDEO

EDITOR.

BUT WHEN SHE WAS 400 YEARS

OLD, A HEART CONDITION MADE

HER SO ILL SHE WAS FORCED TO

LEAVE HER JOB.

IT WAS A VERY SCARY THING

FOR ME BECAUSE I HAD NO IDEA

WHERE MY INCOME WAS GOING TO

COME FROM.

I KNEW I WASN'T GOING TO

WORK, BUT I HAD NO SAVINGS.

Reporter: SHE WASN'T

USED TO ASKING FOR HELP.

IN FACT, SHE WAS MORE

ACCUSTO ACCUSTOMED TO

GIVING.

NOW UNABLE TO WORK, SHE KNEW

SHE WOULD NEED ASSISTANCE.

LAURA OWNED STOCK IN A

COMPANY THAT MADE

COMMUNICATIONS PRODUCTS FOR

THE MILITARY.

SHE LEARNED THAT THE COMPANY

WAS MAKING A PROFIT FOR THE

FIRST TIME IN ALMOST 20

YEARS.

SHE RECEIVED A SIZABLE

DIVIDEND CHECK.

ENOUGH FOR HER TO LIVE ON

FOR AN ENTIRE YEAR.

I SAW THAT CHECK COMING

FROM GOD.

Reporter: LAURA

INSTANTLY GAVE 10% TO HER

CHURCH AND CBN.

WHO HAD BEEN THERE FOR HER

IN TIMES OF HER NEED.

I WAS GIVEN HELP NOT ONLY

FROM THE PROGRAM, BUT FROM

THE PRAYER LINE.

THE PRAYER LINE WAS

INSTRUMENTAL IN HELPING ME

GET THROUGH MY HEALTH

PROBLEMS.

Reporter: AND LAURA

RECEIVED ANOTHER DIVIDEND

CHECK THE NEXT YEAR AND THE

NEXT YEAR, EACH ONE BIGGER

THAN THE ONE BEFORE.

WHERE THE CHECKS WERE

GETING BIGGER, I ALSO HAD

BEEN UPPING MY ANTE ON MY

TITHING.

Reporter: TODAY LAURA'S

HEALTH IS IMPROVING AND SHE

IS PLANNING TO GO BACK TO

WORK.

SHE ALSO MADE A COMMITMENT

TO TITHE 20% OF HER INCOME.

SHE KNOWS HER ANNUAL CHECKS

AREN'T GUARANTIED, BUT GOD'S

FAITHFULNESS IS.

I THINK IT'S VERY

IMPORTANT TO TITHE.

AND ALSO TO SIT BACK AND

KNOW YOU DON'T NEED TO KNOW

THE DETAILS ON HOW IT IS

GOING TO BE RETURNED TO

YOU.

JUST HAVE FAITH AND KNOW IT

IS GOING TO BE RETURNED TO

YOU -- THAT'S THE ONLY THING

HE ASKS YOU TO DO.

THAT IS SOMETHING WE ALL CAN

DO.

IT DOESN'T COST YOU ANYTHING

TO HAVE FAITH.
