Reporter: THE STRESS OF

RAISING TWO CHILDREN ALONE

WEIGHED HEAVILY ON YVETTE

WEBBER.

AS A SINGLE MOM, OUR

MONEY WAS SPENT.

UTILITY BIS AN BILLS TAKEN

FOOD.

Reporter: SHE WATCHED

"700 CLUB" AND LEARNED ABOUT

THE PERSONS OF TITHING.

SHE DECIDED TO GIVE GOD 10%

OF WHAT LITTLE MONEY SHE

EARNED.

THERE WERE TIMES WE

DIDN'T KNOW HOW WE WERE

GOING TO MAKE IT.

BUT THERE WAS ALWAYS A KNOCK

ON THE DOOR, AND THERE WAS

ALWAYS PROVISION.

WE NEVER WENT WITHOUT.

Reporter: A FEW YEARS

LATER, YVETTE MET AND

MARRIED TIM.

FOR THE FIRST TIME WE HAD

MORE THAN WE NEEDED.

WE HAD A LOT.

AND WE GOT A LITTLE CARRIED

AWAY.

WE MADE HIGH CAR

PAYMENTS.

WE HAD CREDIT CARD DEBT.

WE JUST WEREN'T MAKING WISE

CHOICES.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY

THE COUPLE RAN UP $18,000 IN

CREDIT CARD DEBT.

WE WERE BOTH FEELING SO

MUCH STRESS OVER THE

FINANCES, IT STARTED TO

EFFECT US IN TERMS OF HOW WE

WERE GETTING ALONE.

WE WERE FIGHTING A LITTLE

BIT MORE.

Reporter: AND GIVING

WAS ANOTHER AREA THE COUPLE

HAD CONFLICT.

WHILE YVETTE TITHED OFF HER

TEACHER'S SALARY, TIM WASN'T

SO SURE.

I WASN'T QUITE READY TO

DO THAT.

I GUESS I WAS AFRAID.

WE DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH.

WE HAD BILLS THAT SEEMED TO

BE INCREASING.

IT WAS HARD TO THINK OF

GIVING 10%.

Reporter: WHEN THE

COUPLE WATCHED PAT TEACH ON

THE LAW OF RECIPROCITY, TIM

HAD A CHANGE OF HEART.

WE WERE REGULAR WATCHERS

OF "THE 700 CLUB" FOR A LONG

TIME.

AND I KNOW THAT THAT WOULD

PRICK ME.

EVERY TIME I WOULD HEAR

THAT, IT WOULD REMIND ME, WE

REALLY SHOULD BE DOING

THAT.

WHAT AM I HOLDING BACK WHEN

IT DOESN'T BELONG TO ME,

REALLY.

HE GAVE IT TO ME FOR USE FOR

HIM.

UNDER THAT DIRECTION, WE

DECIDED THAT WE NEEDED TO GO

BACK TO TITHING, NOT ONLY MY

INCOME, BUT HIS INCOME AS

WELL.

Reporter: AFTER THEY

BOTH STARTED GIVING 10% OF

THEIR PAYCHECKS TO GOD, TIM

LANDED A HIGHER-PAYING JOB.

FROM MY PART, IT WAS

ALMOST EFFORTLESS, AND I

COULDN'T BELIEVE HOW OBVIOUS

IT WAS TO ME THAT GOD HAD

JUST OPENED THE DOORS.

THE LORD WAS ABLE TO GIVE

ME WISDOM TO MAKE WHAT WE

HAD GO FURTHER, AND NEVER BE

LATE ON A SINGLE BILL.

Reporter: SOON YVETTE

WAS ABLE TO CUT HER WORK

HOURS IN HALF AND SPEND MORE

TIME AT HOME WITH THE

CHILDREN.

NOW THE CBN PARTNERS ARE ON

TRACK TO BE DEBT-FREE THIS

YEAR.

IT TAKES A LEAP OF FAITH

TO TRUST THAT YOU CAN GIVE

TO THE LORD FIRST.

YOU CAN GIVE TO HIS WORK AND

YOU CAN TRUST THAT HE IS

GOING TO MAKE EVERYTHING

WORK OUT OKAY.

GO AHEAD AND TRUST GOD.

AND I KNOW IN MY OWN LIFE

MANY TIMES THAT GOD HAS

ALWAYS COME THROUGH IN HIS

PROMISES.

AND WE JUST HAD TO TRUST HIM

ON THIS ONE.
