Watch the 700 Club Canada for October 4, 2012. Read Transcript


HELLO, I'M BRIAN WARREN.

AND I'M LAURA LYNN TYLER

THOMPSON.

THANKS FOR JOINING US TODAY.

LAURA LYNN, YOU KNOW THE

SCRIPTURES SAY THAT COLOSSIANS

210, WE'RE COMPLETING CHRIST

JESUS, THERE'S A LOT OF

SHAKE-UPS IN BETWEEN.

IS THERE ANYTHING THAT YOU'RE

NOT CONFIDENT ABOUT?

ANYTHING I'M NOT CONFIDENT

ABOUT?

YES.

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THAT

SHOW, ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A

FIFTH GRADER?

THAT DOES NOT GIVE ME

CONFIDENCE WHEN I DON'T KNOW

ANY OF THE ANSWERS THAT ALL THE

LITTLE FIFTH GRADERS SEEM TO

KNOW ABOUT.

IF YOU ARE NOT FEELING GOOD,

LADIES, DO NOT SIT DOWN WITH

YOUR FAMILY TO WATCH THAT SHOW,

IT'S NOT GOING TO HELP YOU.

I KNEW THIS WAS A BLACK

COUCH MOMENT, ANYBODY GOT THEM

ON SPEED DIAL.

LATER ON, WE HAVE A STORY

ABOUT AN ACTRESS AND SHE DID

NOT FEEL SMART ENOUGH OR PRETTY

ENOUGH OR GOOD ENOUGH AND

SOMETIMES WE ALL JUST DON'T

THINK THAT WE GOT WHAT IT TAKES

BUT CAN I TELL YOU THAT GOD

JUST TAKES OUR LITTLE BIT AND

HE ANOINTS IT AND HE MAKES YOU

POWERFUL IN WHATEVER HE CALLS

YOU TO DO, AND THAT'S WHAT

TODAY'S SHOW IS ABOUT.

IT'S BASICALLY WHEN YOU

STAND UP TO FIFTH GRADERS.

ON TODAY'S SHOW, WE'RE GOING TO

HELP THOSE OF YOU WHO NEED A

LITTLE CONFIDENCE BOOST AND

HELP REORIENT YOUR FOCUS ON

GOD.

WE VISIT HOLLYWOOD TODAY AS

ANDREA LOGAN WHITE GIVES A

BEHIND THE SCENES LOOK AT HER

LIFE BEFORE THE CAMERAS STARTED

ROLLING.

AND LAURA LYNN IS HERE WITH

ANOTHER EDITION OF WHAT YOU

BELIEVE CANADA AS SHE HITS THE

STREETS TO ASK MORE BIG

QUESTIONS ABOUT FAITH.

BUT FIRST, NAVIGATING THE

DATING SCENE CAN BE A CONFUSING

AND FRUSTRATING JOURNEY AND

CHRISTIANS ARE NO EXCEPTION.

KRISTI WATTS CONTINUES HER

SERIES ON RELATIONSHIPS AS SHE

LOOKS AT SOME EYE-OPENING

TRUTHS ABOUT CHRISTIAN DATING.

CONFIDENCE.

DATING SHOULD BE ABOUT

ENJOYING LIFE, HAVING FUN,

DEVELOPING EXPERIENCES WITH THE

OPPOSITE SEX, BUILDING THAT

PART OF YOU THAT'S ABLE TO

UNDERSTAND SOMEONE OF THE

OPPOSITE SEX.

IF YOU ARE DATING JUST TO GET

MARRIED, THEN YOU'RE GOING TO

PROBABLY SAY YES TO THE FIRST

THING THAT COMES ALONG, AND

IT'S PROBABLY NOT GOING TO GO

VERY WELL.

I REALLY BELIEVE IF YOU WANT TO

HONOR GOD IF YOUR DATING LIFE,

YOU OUGHT TO BE LOOKING TO BE

FRIENDS FIRST AND FRIENDS FOR A

LONG TIME BEFORE YOU EVER THINK

ABOUT KISSING THAT PERSON AND

GETTING ROMANTICALLY INVOLVED.

IF I DON'T LEARN HOW TO BE A

FRIEND OF SOMEONE OF THE

OPPOSITE SEX, I'M PROBABLY NOT

GOING TO BE A GOOD FRIEND WHEN

I'M MARRIED AND IF I DON'T HAVE

THAT FOUNDATION OF FRIENDSHIP

IN MARRIAGE, IT PROBABLY WON'T

BE A GOOD MARRIAGE.

ONE OF THE BIG MISTAKES IS

SOMEONE HEARS SOMEONE SAY,

WELL, I'M A CHRISTIAN, OKAY,

GREAT, THAT'S EQUALLY YOKED

AND LET'S HAVE A DATE AND MOVE

FORWARD WHEN IN REALITY,

THERE'S A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT

SAY THEY ARE CHRISTIANS BUT

THEY DON'T TREAT PEOPLE LIKE

THE WAY CHRIST WOULD TREAT

SOMEONE, THEY ARE NOT CHRIST

FOLLOWERS IN THE DATING WORLD

SO YOU'RE NOT JUST LOOKING FOR

SOMEONE THAT SAYS I'M A

CHRISTIAN, YOU'RE LOOKING FOR

SOMEONE THAT HAS A SPIRITUAL

FOUNDATION, A BIBLICAL

FOUNDATION FOR THEIR LIFE

WHERE THEY'RE FOLLOWING AFTER

CHRIST, NOT JUST SAYING I HAVE

THE LABEL OF CHRIST.

IF THERE IS A LACK OF ANYTHING

IN DATING, IT IS A LACK OF THIS

ACCOUNTABILITY TO OTHER PEOPLE

WHERE YOU'RE TALKING TO FOLKS,

WHERE YOU'RE ASKING THEM TO ASK

THEM REVIEW WHAT YOU'RE DOING,

YOU'RE MAKING DECISIONS THAT

KEEP YOU SEXUALLY PURE, KEEP

YOUR INTEGRITY IN PLACE AND

HONOR THE OTHER PERSON YOU'RE

IN.

MOST GODLY WOMEN ARE LOOKING

FOR ONE WORD ABOVE ALL WORDS

AND THAT IS RESPONSIBILITY, AND

THAT MEANS RESPONSIBLE TO GOD,

RESPONSIBLE TO ME AND

RESPONSIBLE TO THOSE WHO COME

AFTER US.

I THINK MEN WANT TO FEEL LIKE

HEROES, THEY WANT TO BE

RESPECTED, THEY WANT TO BELIEVE

THAT THIS PERSON IS GOING TO BE

TRUE AND FAITHFUL TO THEM.

I THINK THEY'RE LOOKING FOR A

WOMAN WHO REALLY DOES PRIZE THE

SEXUAL DIMENSION IN A

RELATIONSHIP IN MARRIAGE, THAT

THEY'RE NOT AFRAID OF THAT,

THAT THEY ARE AWARE OF IT, AND

THEY'VE WORKED OUT WHATEVER

ISSUES THAT NEED TO BE WORKED

OUT FOR THEM TO BE FREE

SEXUALLY ONCE THEY ARE MARRIED.

THE WORST THING THAT I SEE

HAPPENING FOR WOMEN IS DATING

IN A DESPERATE SITUATION.

I THINK DESPERATION LEADS TO

SOME REALLY HORRIBLE MARRIAGES.

YOU NEED TO NOT DATE FOR A

WHILE UNTIL YOU GET YOURSELF TO

A PLACE WHERE YOU ARE NOT

DESPERATE, YOU FEEL GOOD ABOUT

YOURSELF, YOU'RE HAVING A GREAT

SINGLE LIFE.

IF YOU'RE NEVER MARRIED, YOU

WOULD BE ABSOLUTELY SATISFIED

AND HAPPY AND FULFILLED, THAT'S

HOW WE WANT TO SEE PEOPLE

DATING, ESPECIALLY FOR A FEMALE.

I DON'T THINK THERE'S JUST ONE

PERFECT MATCH AND IT'S THE ONLY

ONE AND IF YOU HIT IT, YOU'RE

GOOD, IF YOU DON'T, YOU HAVE

MISERY, I THINK THERE ARE A LOT

OF CHOICES THAT COULD WORK.

KNOWING THE PERSON IS THE ONE,

IT'S MORE THAN A FEELING, I

MEAN, I THINK YOU HAVE TO TAKE

A REALLY GOOD LOOK AT THE

RELATIONSHIP AND ASK YOURSELF,

DO I FEEL LOVED BY THIS PERSON,

DO I FEEL RESPECTED, DO I FEEL

FREE IN THIS RELATIONSHIP, DO I

FEEL LIKE OUR RELATIONSHIP

HONORS GOD, DO WE HAVE THINGS

IN COMMON THAT WE WANT TO DO IN

LIFE, WE'RE NOT GOING OPPOSITE

DIRECTIONS?

ARE WE ABLE TO SOLVE CONFLICT

TOGETHER AND NOT BE AT EACH

OTHER'S THROATS OVER THE AT

LEAST LITTLE THINGS, ARE WE

ABLE TO BE FRIENDS TO EACH

OTHER.

DO WE GENUINELY CARE ABOUT THE

OTHER PERSON AND ONE OF THE

THINGS THAT I THINK IS SO

IMPORTANT IS IF IT'S THE ONE,

THEN I WANT TO BE ABLE TO

ACCEPT THAT PERSON'S WOUNDS AND

I WANT TO BE PART OF THE

HEALING OF THAT PERSON'S WOUNDS

ALSO.

WHEN YOU PUT ALL THAT TOGETHER,

YOU CAN MAKE A GOOD DECISION

ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT THIS

PERSON IS THE ONE.

ALL OF THAT TO ME IS PART OF

THE SURRENDERING MY DATING LIFE

TO GOD, IT ISN'T JUST SITTING

BACK AT HOME WAITING FOR GOD TO

DELIVER SOMEONE TO ME, IT IS

BOTH I DO WHAT I CAN TO MAKE A

GOOD DECISION WHILE I TRUST GOD

TO PROVIDE FOR ME THE

OPPORTUNITIES THAT ARE

GOD-HONORING OPPORTUNITIES TO

EITHER MEET OR NOT MEET, DATE

OR NOT DATE, MARRY OR NOT

MARRY, GOD LOVES YOU, HE WANTS

THE BEST FOR YOU AND HE'S GOING

TO FULFILL SOME DESIRES AS WELL

AS NEEDS WHEN YOU MARRY THE

RIGHT PERSON.

YOU KNOW, ONE OF THE THINGS

THAT I REALLY APPRECIATE, DON'T

DATE WITH YOU'RE DESPERATE.

MANY OF US FEEL LIKE WE'RE

GOING BE THE LAST ONE STANDING

AT THE DANCE AND NOBODY'S GOING

TO ASK US TO DANCE SO WE GO

THROUGH THIS HYPER SENSE OF

ANXIETY, I'D LIKE TO GET SOME

THINGS IN YOUR HANDS,

OVERCOMING A CRITICAL SPIRIT

AND ALSO OVERCOMING GUILT, I

REALLY BELIEVE AND IF I COULD

GIVE YOU SOME PASTORAL ADVICE,

THAT A LOT OF US OVERCOOK IT,

WE TRY TO OVERTHINK IT AND

OVERLIVE IT INSTEAD OF GIVING

IT TO GOD AND NOT WAITING TO

LIVE BUT LIVE WHILE WE'RE

WAITING.

THE BIBLE SAYS THEY WAIT UPON

THE LORD SHALL RENEW THEIR

STRENGTH IN ISAIAH CHAPTER 40,

WHEN WE'RE IN THAT SINGLE PLACE

IN OUR LIFE, IT'S IMPORTANT

THAT WE FULFILL THAT FULLNESS

OF THAT SINGLE, THAT WE BECOME

WHOLE AND BECOME CONNECTED TO

THAT OTHER HALF AND BECOME A

WHOLE, SO MANY OF US SPEND SO

MUCH TIME IN OUR DESPERATENESS

DEALING WITH REJECTION ISSUES.

LAURA LYNN?

WHILE YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT

THAT, I HAD A SENSE THAT

THERE'S SOMEBODY OUT THERE, YOU

HAVE AT TIMES PAST WALKED IN

DESPERATION, EVEN WORRY THAT

GOD IS NOT GOING TO BRING THAT

BEAUTIFUL PERSON TO YOUR LIFE

TO COME TOGETHER WITH YOU, BUT

CAN I TELL YOU, HE IS WORKING

IT OUT.

THE WORD OF GOD SAYS THAT A MAN

WHO FINDS A WIFE FINDS A GOOD

THING, A GOOD THING AND THERE

IS SOMEONE THAT GOD IS PREPARED

-- AND I FEEL IT, I KNOW IT'S

TRUE, YOU HAVE BEEN SEARCHING

FOR THAT PERSON AND I THINK

IT'S A HERE, GOD IS GOING TO

BRING THAT IN YOUR PATH AND THE

WAY THAT YOU GO WHEN YOU ARE

FOLLOWING HARD AFTER GOD, WHEN

YOU SEEK HIM FIRST, HE WILL ADD

ALL THESE THINGS TO YOU, GOD

HAS IT COVERED, GOD HAS

SOMETHING GOOD FOR YOU.

HE HAS YOUR BACK, YOU'VE

BEEN TRYING TO KISS TOO MANY

FROGS TRYING TO GET TO YOUR

PRINCE CHARMER.

LET THEM KNOW THEY ARE GALATIANS

20:10, WE BLEND FAITH

AND CALL IT SO IN JESUS NAME.

IN JESUS NAME, 1-855-759-0700,

GIVE US A CALL.

TOO OFTEN, WE CARRY BAGGAGE

FROM OUR PAST, YOU KNOW WHAT

IT'S LIKE, IT AFFECTS

EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE IN OUR

LIVES.

IT'S ALWAYS THERE WEIGHING US

DOWN AND KEEPING US FROM

ACHIEVING TRUE HAPPINESS, BUT

DO YOU KNOW GOD NEVER MEANT FOR

US TO BE TRAPPED IN THE PAST.

YOU CAN BE FREE OF YOUR

BAGGAGE, LEARN HOW GOD'S

FORGIVENESS LEADS TO CHANGED

LIVES AND NEW BEGINNINGS.

CALL THE 700 CLUB.

HEY, WELCOME TO THIS HOPE TO

GO, WE'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT

OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS

AND THIS IS THE FINAL SEGMENT

OF THAT, WALKING TALL IN TOUGH

TIMES AND USUALLY TOUGH TIMES

COME BECAUSE WE HAVE IN

OPPOSITION, WE WRESTLE NOT

AGAINST FLESH AND GOD BUT

SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH

PLACES IN OTHER WORDS,

SPIRITUAL WARFARE, WHEN WE

ACCEPT QUA JESUS CHRIST DID ON

THE CROSS WITH US, WE ARE ABLE

TO HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH

GOD, BUT WE SELDOM TAP INTO ALL

THE BENEFITS OF THAT

RELATIONSHIP, THROUGH CHRIST,

WE HAVE ACCESS TO THE SAME

POWER THAT CONQUERED THE GREAT,

DID YOU GET THAT, THAT IS THE

SECRET OF OUR SUCCESS, FINDING

AND STAYING IN TOUGH TIMES,

WALKING IN THAT PLACE WITH GOD.

NOW, WE'RE REMINDED THAT

STAYING ON THE PATH OF LIFE HAS

MORE TO DO WITH OUR HEARTS THAN

OUR WANTS, YESTERDAY YOU CAME

IN PRINCIPLE ONE, WALKING TALL

IN TOUGH TIMES, YOU HAVE TO

STAY FOCUSED ON GOD AND YOUR

PASSION AND YOUR DESIRE FOR THE

PRESENCE OF GOD, FOR IT'S THE

PRESENCE OF GOD THAT REALLY

MAKES THE DIFFERENCE.

TODAY I WANT TO FOCUS ON THIS

AND THIS IS THE PRINCIPLE, MAKE

SURE YOU WRITE THIS DOWN, IF

YOU'RE GOING TO WALK TALL IN

TOUGH TIME, EMBRACE AND FACE

THE UPS AND DOWNS, EVERYBODY

HAS THEM, LISTEN TO WHAT THE

PSALM SAYS, REMEMBER PSALMS 27,

8 THROUGH 10 SAYS THIS, YOU

HAVE SAID SEEK MY FACE, MY

HEART SAYS TO YOU, MY FACE LORD

WILL I SEE, INQUIRE FOR AND

REQUIRE, VERSE 9, HIDE NOT YOUR

FACE FROM ME, TURN NOT YOUR

SERVANT AWAY IN ANGER, YOU WHO

HAVE BEEN MY HELP CAST ME OFF,

OH GOD OF MY SALVATION,

ALTHOUGH MY MOTHER AND FATHER

HAS FORSAKEN ME, THE LORD WILL

TAKE ME UP, THE DIFFERENCE

BETWEEN THE RIGHTEOUS AND THE

UNRIGHTEOUS, THE RIGHTEOUS GET

UP EVERY TIME, IF YOU HAVE TO

WALK TALL, YOU HAVE TO GET UP,

THIS IS THE BIG DIFFERENCE,

GETTING UP, THEY SHAKE IT OFF,

PROVERBS 24:16 SAYS IT THIS

WAY, THOUGH A RIGHTEOUS MAN

FALLS 7 TIMES, HE RISES AGAIN.

THE ENEMY WANTS YOU, THE

ACCUSER WANTS TO MAKE YOU FEEL

USELESS AND DEFEATED, THE BIBLE

REVEALS ABOUT OUR ENEMY IS

THIS, HE IS A LIAR, THE DEVIL

IS A LIAR AND SO IF YOU'VE

MESSED UP AND YOU'VE TOTALLY

BLOWN IT, CRY OUT TO GOD AND

GET UP, GET BACK ON THE PATH OF

LIFE AND YOU WILL BE THE

VICTOR, IT TELLS US THAT IN

37:22 BUT THIS IS THE BIG HOPE O

GO TRUTH, STAY ON THE PATH OF

LIFE AND JUST BELIEVE, YOU'VE

GOT TO LIVE IN AUTHENTIC AND

I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT A FAKE

PHONY, A CHRIST CENTERED LIFE,

AS CHRISTIANS, OUR HEART'S

DESIRE MUST BE TO LIVE ON THE

STRAIGHT PATH AND THE ONLY WAY

WE'RE ABLE TO OVERCOME SOCIETY'S

-- THAT FORCES US TO COMPROMISES

TO GO AFTER DAVID'S DESIRE, WE

MUST LOOK TO THE LORD AND HIS

WORD AND NOT THE SOCIETY AROUND

US BECAUSE WHAT WE DO WITH WE

GET KNOCKED DOWN IS WE GET UP

AND THAT IS YOUR HOPE TO GO.

I LOVE WHAT BRIAN WAS JUST

SAYING BECAUSE HE'S TALKING

ABOUT NEVER GIVING UP AND YOU

KNOW WHAT ROMANS 3 SAYS, MORE

EVER, LET US TRIUMPH IN OUR

TROUBLES AND KNOWING THAT

AFFLICTION AND HARDSHIP PRODUCE

PATIENCE AND UNENDING

ENDURANCE, THAT'S BA WE NEED.

WELL, COMING UP, CHRISTOFF AND

I TALK ABOUT LIFE'S TRIALS.

SO, CHRISTOFF, TELL ME A BIT

ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY AND SOME

THINGS THAT YOU'RE GOING

THROUGH AND MAYBE STRUGGLING

THROUGH TRYING TO FIND YOUR WAY.

THE CHALLENGE SORT OF BEGAN,

I'VE BEEN PLAYING SOCCER PRETTY

MUCH MY ENTIRE LIFE, I'M 28

YEARS OLD, I'VE BEEN PLAYING

SINCE I WAS 7 AND EARLIER THIS

SEASON WHILE I WAS BASICALLY

FEELING AT THE PEAK OF MY

ENTIRE SOCCER CAREER, LOVE FOR

THE GAME, I SUFFERED A BAD

CONCUSSION, I GOT ELBOWED IN

THE TEMPLE AND THIS HAPPENED A

FEW MONTHS AGO AND IT'S AN

ISSUE THAT HASN'T RESOLVED

ITSELF YET SO IT'S A STRUGGLE

THAT I LIVE THROUGH DAY-TO-DAY

AND IT'S ONE OF THOSE THINGS

THAT THERE'S NO CLEAR END SO

EVERY DAY, IT'S KIND OF LIKE --

IT'S ANOTHER CHALLENGE AND IT'S

A PROBLEM THAT IS SORT OF

PERVASIVE IN SO MANY WAYS SO

YOU HAVE TO FIND MANY WAYS TO

ADDRESS THE CHALLENGES AND SO

IT'S BEEN A HUGE LEARNING

PROCESS AND I'M REALLY HOPING I

COME OUT OF IT.

DO YOU HAVE FAITH IN YOUR

LIFE, CHRISTOFF, DO YOU BELIEVE

IN GOD, DO YOU BELIEVE IN

HEALING?

NO, I CAN'T SAY THAT I DO.

YEAH.

YEAH.

EVEN WHEN SOMETHING LIKE

THIS HAPPENS, HAVE YOU SAID

EVEN ONE PRAYER, LIKE, IF

YOU'RE OUT THERE, GOD, WOULD

YOU FIX THIS OR HELP ME?

NO, I HAVEN'T, I'VE ALWAYS

SORT OF BELIEVED IN THE POWER

OF ONE'S SELF TO BE ABLE TO

OVERCOME CHALLENGES.

BUT WHAT ABOUT WHEN YOU HIT P

THIS PROBLEM THAT YOU JUST

CAN'T FIX?

WELL, THEN I SUPPOSE THAT'S

JUST THE WAY IT IS AND THAT'S

ANOTHER ONE OF THE CHALLENGES

OR ANOTHER ONE OF THE LESSONS

LEARNED.

THERE'S NOT ALWAYS A SOLUTION

TO EVERYTHING, AND SOMETIMES WE

JUST HAVE TO ACCEPT WHAT IS.

WHEN YOU GET TO A PLACE LIKE

YOU'RE AT, CHRISTOFF, I MEAN,

IF THERE WERE A GOD, THIS WOULD

BE A GOOD TIME FOR HIM TO SHOW

UP.

WELL, YOU KNOW, IT'S A

QUESTION THAT I HAVE EXPLORED A

FAIR BIT AND, YOU KNOW,

THERE'S DEFINITELY A GREAT --

I'M SURE A POWER, A PERSONAL

POWER IN FAITH, BUT I CAN'T SAY

THAT --

IT'S NOT SOMETHING THAT

YOU'VE EMBRACED OR BEEN ABLE TO

ACCEPT?

NO, I ALSO THINK THAT YOU

CAN ALSO FILL THAT POWER THAT

EXISTS IN SOME PEOPLE TO FIND

IT THROUGH FAITH AND I CAN FIND

IT THROUGH -- LIKE I SAY, LIKE

THE BELIEF IN ONE'S SELF THAT I

DO ALSO THINK THAT WE HAVE LIKE

A LIFE ENERGY THAT CONNECTS US

ALL, SOME PEOPLE MAY CALL THAT

GOD.

I KNOW IT AS SOMETHING SORT OF

DIFFERENT.

WOW, THANK YOU, CHRISTOFF.

YOU KNOW, WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT

CAN CHANGE OUR LIVES AT ANY

GIVEN MOMENT.

YOU'RE GOING ABOUT YOUR DAILY

BUSINESS, DOING WHAT YOU LOVE

AND SUDDENLY SOME KIND OF

INJURY, SOMETHING CAN HAPPEN SO

DRAMATICALLY.

THERE IS A GOD WHO INTERCEPTS

THESE THINGS AND HIS NAME IS

JESUS AND WE ARE HERE EVERY DAY

BECAUSE WE BELIEVE IN THAT LORD

AND SAVIOR.

WELCOME BACK.

UP NEXT, THE JOURNEY TO

SUCCESS IN HOLLYWOOD HITS A FEW

BUMPS IN THE ROAD FOR ONE

DETERMINED ACTRESS.

I HAD EXTREMELY LOW

SELF-ESTEEM AND NEVER FELT GOOD

ENOUGH, PRETTY ENOUGH, SMART

ENOUGH.

ANDREA LOGAN WHITE FELT

INVISIBLE, AS THE MIDDLE CHILD

OF TWO CAREER DRIVEN AFFRONTS,

SHE WAS HUNGRY FOR AFFECTION

AND ATTENTION.

MY FATHER WAS A POLICE

OFFICER AND MY MOTHER, YOU

KNOW, STARTED WORKING QUITE

OFTEN IN FULL TIME JOBS AND WE

GREW UP IN AN EMOTIONALLY

STERILE ENVIRONMENT SO THERE

WAS NOT A LOT OF AFFECTION OR

ATTENTION.

WHEN ANDREA TURNED 13 YEARS

OLD, HER PARENTS DIVORCED AND

HER GRANDPARENTS DIED.

I WAS HOPE LESS AND WAS

DIAGNOSED AT DEPRESSION AT 13,

I WAS THREATENING SUICIDE

BECAUSE I WAS SO DESPERATE TO

HAVE SOMEBODY PAY ATTENTION TO

ME AND TO LOVE ON ME.

WHEN ANDREA'S CRIES FOR HELP

WERE IGNORED, SHE REALIZED BY

CONTROLLING HER EATING HABITS,

SHE COULD TAKE CHARGE OF HER

LIFE.

THE EATING DISORDER STARTED

IN HIGH SCHOOL, I STARTED TO

CONTROL MY ENVIRONMENT, IF I

COULD DO THIS ONE THING AND BE

STRONG IN THIS AREA, THEN I'LL

BE DIFFERENT, AND I THINK THAT

WAS THE ONE THING THAT MADE ME

ODDLY ENOUGH FEEL STRONG.

SOON, ANOREXIA CONSUMED

ANDREA'S LIFE.

I REMEMBER AT THE WORST

POINT OF THE EATING DISORDER, I

THINK I WAS EATING 500 CALORIES

OR LESS SO I WOULD COUNT EVERY

STICK OF GUM AND EVERYTHING I

WOULD PUT IN MY MOUTH AND EVEN

WHAT 78 POUNDS, 85 POUNDS, 90

POUNDS, I WOULD SEE A FAT, UGLY

PERSON.

I WAS ALIVE BUT I WAS SO DEAD

INSIDE, AND SO BROKEN AND IT

WAS JUST ALL CONSUMING, THE

OBSESSION, THE COMPULSION AND

IT TAKES EVERY PART OF YOUR

LIFE AWAY FROM YOU.

WHEN SHE WAS 18, ANDREA WENT

TO AN OUT-PATIENT FACILITY FOR

TWO WEEKS TO GET HELP WITH THE

ANOREXIA, SHORTLY AFTER HER

TREATMENT ENDED, ANDREA WENT TO

LOS ANGELES TO PURSUE HER DREAM

OF ACTING.

I WAS AROUND SEX AND DRUGS

AND EVERYTHING YOU COULD

IMAGINE AND MONEY AND IT BECAME

NORMAL TO ME AND THAT WAS

SCARY, I WOULD RELAPSE IN AND

OUT OF THE ANOREXIA BECAUSE

AGAIN, I HAD NO SUPPORT, NO

FOUNDATION BECAUSE I WAS

LOOKING AT PEOPLE WITH PLASTIC

SURGERY, AND LOOKING WHAT

APPEARED TO BE THE PERFECT LIKE

ESTHETICALLY.

AFTER A COUPLE OF YEARS IN

HOLLYWOOD, THE COMPETITION FOR

JOBS AND FEAR OF REJECTION

BEGAN TO WEAR ON ANDREA, THAT'S

WHEN SHE STARTED WORKING A SIDE

JOB AS A PERSONAL TRAINER,

SEVERAL OF HER CLIENTS WERE

CHRISTIANS

I WAS EXHAUSTED PHYSICALLY,

MENTALLY AND EMOTIONALLY, I WAS

AT THAT PLACE WHERE MY EYES

WERE OPEN, I WAS READY FOR IT

AND I STARTED SEEING THE JOY

AND THE PEACE THAT THESE OTHER

CHRISTIANS THAT I WAS WORKING

WITH AND I COULD SEE THE

DIFFERENCE IN THEIR LIVES.

DRIVING HOME FROM WORK ONE

DAY, ANDREA PRAYED TO GOD WHEN

SHE STOPPED AT A LIGHT.

I GOT TO ROCK BOTTOM AND I

REMEMBER CRYING OUT TO GOD IN

MY CAR, I WAS SOBBING, SOMEBODY

HAD BEEPED MY HORN, I HESITATED

TO LOOK OVER AND HELD UP A

SIGN AND IT WAS A SIGN TO A

RADIO STATION, I TURNED THE

RADIO STATION ON AND THERE WAS

A PASTOR REPEATING THE PRAYER

THAT I HAD JUST CRIED OUT, GOD

USED THAT AND HE WAS CRYING OUT

THE SAME WORDS, IT WAS A HUGE

SIGN, SYMBOLICALLY OF GOD

SAYING, LISTEN, YOU'RE HERE FOR

A REASON, I HAVE A PLAN FOR YOU

AND I AM HERE AND I AM REAL,

AND REALLY THAT'S WHEN MY LIFE

MADE A DRAMATIC CHANGE AND I

ACCEPTED CHRIST AS MY SAVIOR, I

JUST REMEMBER FEELING THAT

PEACE AND THAT JOY AND KNOWING

THAT IT WAS REAL.

IN 20003, ANDREA MARRIED

DAVID WHITE, ANDREA CONTINUED

STRUGGLING WITH EATING

DISORDERS AFTER GETTING MARRIED.

SHE SLIPPED INTO

BULIMIA.

THE OTHER PART, KNOWING IS

THAT WE STILL HAVE THE

EMOTIONAL WOUNDS AND THE SOUL

WOUNDS AND I THINK BEING A

CHRISTIAN AND LEARNING YOUR

IDENTITY, IT'S ONGOING.

FOR TWO YEARS STRAIGHT, MY

HUSBAND AND I WERE ON OUR KNEES

AND CRYING OUT TO GOD, ASKING

GOD FOR HIS MERCY.

THROUGH CONSISTENT PRAYER

AND BIBLE STUDY, ANDREA BEGAN

TO SEE A BREAK THROUGH.

GOD IS SO GOOD, HE HEALS YOU

AND SOME, GOD HEALED ME OF

BULIMIA, I STOPPED THROWING UP

DOCTORS TOLD HER SHE WOULD

NOT GET PREGNANT BECAUSE OF THE

RAVAGES OF ANOREXIA, WHEN SHE

BECAME PREGNANT WITH HER FIRST

SON, SHE KNEW HER HEALING WAS

COMPLETE.

HE BLESSED ME WITH A STRONG

HEALTHY CHILD SO I FEEL LIKE I

GOT DOUBLE HEALING.

TODAY, ANDREA HAS TWO

HEALTHY CHILDREN AND HAS BEEN

LIVING FREE FROM HER EATING

DISORDER FOR 6 YEARS, SHE WORKS

ALONGSIDE HER HUSBAND, A FAITH

AND FAMILY COMPANY.

SINCE I'VE BEEN SAVED, 99%

OF MY WORK HAS BEEN IN THE

CHRISTIAN MARKET AND IT'S JUST

BEEN SUCH A BLESSING TO DO A

STORY, TO HAVE PART OF IT AND

REDEMPTION IN IT, HE IS

FAITHFUL EVERY TIME HE SEES

YOU, WHETHER IT'S ANOREXIA OR

BULIMIA OR DEPRESSION, HE IS

RIGHT THERE TO CRADLE YOU AND

I'M TELLING YOU, HE WILL NOT

LET YOU DOWN.

I WOULD SAY CRY OUT TO HIM AND

BE RELENTLESS.

WHAT A POWERFUL STORY.

YOU KNOW, WE NEVER KNOW WHERE

SOMEONE HAS COME FROM, YOU CAN

SEE THIS BEAUTIFUL WOMAN, YOU

KNOW, ACTING ON THE SCREEN AND

YET NOT KNOW THAT SHE FACED

ANOREXIA AND BULIMIA, GOD

HELPED HER IN A NIGHT, SOME OF

YOU ARE FACING THIS, YOU DON'T

KNOW HOW TO GET CONTROL OVER

THIS THING THAT IS CONTROLLING

YOU.

GOD IS YOUR ANSWER, JESUS

CHRIST IS THE ANSWER, WHAT HE

DID FOR ANDREA IN HEALING HER

IN A DAY, HE CAN DO FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW.

I'M ASKING YOU TO JUST CALL OUT

TO GOD, DO YOU KNOW WHY WE'RE

HERE EVERY DAY, BECAUSE WE

BELIEVE THIS STUFF, BRIAN AND I

DON'T SHOW UP TO WORK BECAUSE

THIS IS A PAYCHECK AND THIS IS

SOMETHING WE DO FOR A CAREER,

THIS IS A CALL OF GOD BECAUSE

WE KNOW THAT HE IS OUR HEALER,

OUR MASTER AND I'M ASKING YOU

TO PRAY WITH ME RIGHT NOW,

FATHER IN JESUS NAME, I BRING

THIS WOMAN OUT THERE WHO IS

JUST STRUGGLING, OH, GOD, SHE'S

THROWING UP, SHE'S NOT EATING,

SHE'S ABUSING HER BODY, SHE

DOESN'T KNOW WHERE ANSWERS ARE

COMING FROM, I PRAY IN JESUS

NAME THAT THIS CURSE IS BROKEN

AND THAT IS GONE FROM HER FROM

THIS MOMENT ON IN JESUS NAME,

WE THANK YOU FOR IT, LORD.

AMEN, AND LET THE CHURCH SAY

AMEN, IF YOU PRAYED THAT PRAYER

OR RECEIVED THAT PRAYER,

1-855-759-0700, YOU KNOW, IT'S

SO IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO CLAIM

THAT BECAUSE THE GIFT IS NOT

YOURS UNTIL YOU RECEIVED IT, WE

NEED YOU TO CALL THAT NUMBER ON

THE SCREEN.

YOU KNOW, WE REALLY CELEBRATE

WHAT WE'RE DOING HERE AT THE

700 CLUB CANADA AND IT IS SUCH

A PRIVILEGE AND AN HONOR TO BE

COUNTRY, WE KNOW THAT GOD IS
