COMING UP, HOW ONE

ADVOCATE HAS SLASHED THE

ABORTION RATE IN HER CITY BY

20%.

THIS IS THE MOST

REWARDING THING YOU'VE EVER

DONE IN YOUR LIFE.

AND THEN THE SINGER WHO

COULDN'T.

RASççPING, CHOKING --

HERE WHAT RESTORED HER

VOICE.

IS THIS REAL?

PLUS, FORMER HOST, SHEILA

WALSH RETURNS ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

Pat: LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, I ASK YOU RIGHT

NOW, DIDç THEç GROUNDHOG SEE

ITS SHADOW?

IF IT DID, DID IT BELIEVE

IT?

Terry: PU PUNXSTUWANEY

BETTER LOOK OUT.

Pat: HE MESSED UP.

THIS IS ONE OF THE LONGEST,

SNOWIEST WINTERS IN DECADES,

AND STILL ANOTHER STORM HIT

MUCH OF THE EASTERN UNITED

STATES, WITH SNOW PILING AS

HIGH AS 11 INCHES IN SOME

PLACE.

Terry: SPRING,ç BELIEVE

IT OR NOT, IS JUST TWO DAYS

AWAY.

AND MILLIONS OF PEOPLE CAN'T

WAIT.

WE HAVE TWO REPORTS FROM CBN

NEWS, STARTING WITH MARK

MARTIN.

I'M HAVING A BALL.

Reporter: CHARLIE BECK

IS TRYING TO MAKE THE BEST

OF SHOVELING OUT FROM THE

SNOW.

IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE THESE

ARE SCENES FROM THE JERSEY

SHORE A COUPLE OF DAYS

BEFORE SPRING.

THIS RESIDENT SAYS, ENOUGH

IS ENOUGH.

IT IS KIND OF FUNNY.

IN ONE OF THE CHU@CHES NEARkP &C @&Cú

WHERE WE LIVE AT HOME, THEY

HAVE A SIGN, FOR ALL OF THE

PEOPLE PRAYING FOR SNOW,

STOP.

Reporter: NEW JERSEY

RESIDENT MIKE SNEGEL SAYS HE

HAS NEVER EXPERIENCED A

WINTER LIKE THIS ONE.

NO, NOT EVEN CLOSE.

ESPECIALLY IN MARCH.

Reporter: A WINTER

STORM MADE DRIVING

CONDITIONS TREACHEROUS IN

PARTS OF VIRGINIAç AND WEST

VIRGINIA.ç

A BUS OVERTURNED IN

VIRGINIA, SENDING DOZENS OF

PEOPLE TO THE HOSPITAL, SOME

WITH SERIOUS INJURIES, AND

THE DRIVER TO JAIL.

HE IS BEING HELD ON RECKLESS

DRIVING CHARGES.

IT'S THE ROAD

CONDITIONS.

Reporter: JAMORA MOORE

WAS HURT IN THE ACCIDENT.

IT JUST WENT BOOM, AND

THE GLASS SHATTERED.

Reporter: IN

PHILADELPHIA, THE FOUR AND A

HALF INCHES OF SNOW THATç

FELL ONç MONDAY MADE THIS

SECOND SNOWIEST WINTER ON

RECORD THERE.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE

REPORTS THAT 67.4 INCHES OF

SNOW HAVE FALLEN FOR THE

2013/2014 SEASON.

THIS WHILE BUSINESS OWNERS

ALONG THE NEW JERSEY SHORE

ARE ANXIOUSLY WAITING TO SAY

GOOD-BYE TO SNOW AND HELLO

TO TOURISTS.

THREE MORE DAYS UNTIL

SPRING AND WE JUST WANT IT

TO BE HERE.çç

HOPEFULLY THE SNOW IS OUT OF

THE SYSTEM, AND WE WERE

LOOKING FORWARD TO SPRING.

WE WANT TO GET OPEN AND WE

WANT GUESTS TO START COMING

HERE AND THE SUN TO BE

SHINING.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

David: THIS IS DAVID

BRODY IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT SPRING

IS JUST A FEW DAYS AWAY.

THE BAD NEWS: YOU WOULDN'T

KNOW IT AROUND HERE.

THINGS ARE JUST GETTING BACK

TO NORMAL AFTER YESTERDAY'S

SNOWSTORM DUMPED MOREç THAN

OF THE D.C. METRO AREA.

DOZENS OF SCHOOLS, ALONG

WITH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT,

CLOSED DOWN.

HOWEVER, TODAY THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT IS BACK OPEN.

AND TODAY, SOME TRIVIA FOR

YOU, ACUWEATHER SAYS THIS IS

THE THIRD LARGEST SNOWSTORM

TO HIT D.C. IN THIS SEASON.

THE AIRPORTS ALSO GETTING

BACK TO NORMAL AFTER

HUNDREDS OF FLIGHTS WERE

GROUNDED ON MONDAY.AjEz OF THISç SNOW LEFT

RESIDENTS IN THE COLD AND IN

A VERY FAMILIAR PLACE.

BUT JUDGING FROM THE WARM

TEMPERATURES JUST DAYS AGO,

THE SUDDEN SNOWSTORMS CAUGHT

SOME BY SURPRISE.

IT FELT LIKE THE MIDDLE

SPRING YESTERDAY.

AND NOW?

FREEZING.

David: SO THE STORY

TODAY, THAWING

TEMPERATURES.

WE WILL BE ABOVE FREEZING IN

D.C.

THIS WEEKEND WE'RE IN THE

60s, AND THENç THOSEç CHERRY

BLOSSOMS WILL BLOOM AND ALL

OF THIS WILL BE A DISTANT

MEMORY.

DAVID BRODY, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Pat: I WAS READING

TODAY THERE IS A SCIENTIST,

I BELIEVE IN ENGLAND, WHO

SAYS THAT ANYBODY WHO DENIES

THE TRUTH, QUOTE, OF GLOBAL

WARMING SHOULD BE PUT IN

PRISON.

TAKE HIMçç TO D.C. AND SAY,

YOU KNOW, THIS IS THE

EFFECTS OF GLOBAL WARMING?

ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND.

MAYBE YOU SHOULD BE IN A

MENTAL INSTITUTION INSTEAD

OF PUTTING ME IN PRISON.

IN OTHER NEWS, VLADIMIR

PUTIN DOESN'T SEEM TO BE TOO

WORRIED ABOUT THE UNITED

STATES OR EUROPE STOPPING

HIS MOVEMENT TO CRIMEA.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.ç

Reporter: PAT, RUSSIA

IS MOVING FORWARD WITH

ANNEXING CRIMEA, DESPITE

INTENSE INTERNATIONAL

OPPOSITION.

RUSSIAN TROOPS HAVE OCCUPIED

THE REGION FOR TWO WEEKS.

TODAY VLADIMIR PUTIN

APPROVED A DRAFT BILL TO

ANNEX THE CRIMEAN PENINSULA,

IN A TELEVISED ADDRESS TO

PARLIAMENT.

MEANWHILE, VICE PRESIDENT

JOSEPH BIDEN IS IN POLAND.

IT IS AMERICA'S LATEST MOVEç

TO SHOWç IT'S RESOLVE AGAINST

THE MOUNTING INTERVENTION BY

THE RUSSIANS.

THE SANCTIONS ARE AGAINST

RUSSIAN AND UKRAINIAN

OFFICIALS INVOLVED IN THE

CRIMEAN CRISIS.

RUSSIA'S DEPUTY PRIME

MINISTER HA HAS MOCKED

THOSE MOVES.

THE SEARCH FOR THE MISSING

MALAYSIANçç AIRLINER IS THE

TWO STATES.

BACKGROUND CHECKS OF CHINESE

PASSENGERS ON BOARD REVEALED

NO LINKS TO TERRORISM,

RULING OUT SPECULATION THAT

CHINESE MUSLIM SEPARATISTS

MIGHT HAVE BEEN INVOLVED.

IT IS NOW THE LARGEST SEARCH

IN AVIATION HISTORY.

PAT, THIS SEEMS STRANGER

THAN FICTION.

Pat: IT ISRáU)ANGER

THAN FIGJJy

ALL WE CAN FIGURE IS THE

PILOTS WERE DEDICATED

MUSLIMS, AND THIS IS AN ACT

OF PROTEST.

WHAT THEY MUST HAVE DONE,

THEY RAN THAT PLANE BELOW

5,000 FEET, WHICH IS UNDER

UMBRELLA OF RADAR, AND I

DON'T THINK THEY CRASHED

IT.

THEY MUST HAVE LANDED IT

SOME PLACE.

BUT USUALLY TERRORISTS TAKE

CREDIT FOR THIS.

THEY TRUMPET IT AND SAY,

DID TO THE STUPID

WESTERNERS.

THIS TIME NOBODY IS TAKING

CREDIT.

YOU DON'T HEAR ANY TRUMPETS

OR DRUMS BEATING.

IT JUST DISAPPEARED.

SOMEBODY HAS GOT THEMSELVES

A VERY VALUABLE AIRPLANE.

PAT, A 4.4 EARTHQUAKE

ROCKED PASADENA.

IT WAS THE ONLY QUAKE OFç

THATç MAGNITUDE RECORDED

THERE.

AN EARLY MORNING SYSTEM

SOUNDED ALARM JUST SECONDS

BEFORE THE SHAKING BEGAN.

WATCH AS THESE NEWS ANCHORS

REALIZE WHAT HAPPENED WHILE

THEY WERE ON THE AIR.

WE'RE HAVING AN

EARTHQUAKE.

OKAY, IT APPEARS TO HAVE

STOPPED.

YEAH.

OFFICIALS SAY THEçç TREMOR

SHOULD SERVE AS A WARNING

FOR PEOPLE TO BE PREPARED

WITH EMERGENCY KITS AND

SAFETY KITS IN CASE A LARGER

ONE HITS.

IF A 9.0 WERE TO HIT THE

NORTHERN COAST, IT WOULD

HAVE A CATASTROPHIC RIPPLE

EFFECT.

A GIANT TSUNAMI WOULD WASH

AWAY COASTAL TOWNS AND COST

$70 BILLION IN DAMAGE.

PEOPLE IN LIGHTLYç POPULATED

ABOUT 15 MINUTES' WARNING.

Pat: I THINK THE PEOPLE

IN CALIFORNIA ARE PREPARED,

BUT THEY'RE NEVER PREPARED

FOR SOMETHING OF THIS

MAGNITUDE.

SO THE EP SA EPICENTER

SEEMS TO BE IN SOUTHERN

CALIFORNIA.

THEY KEEP TALKING

ABOUT, QUOTE,"THE BIG ONE,"

BECAUSE THERE HASN'T BEEN A

BIG ONE IN YEARS.ç

AND IF Iç CAN USE THE TERM,

IT IS OVERDUE BECAUSE THE

STRESS HAS BUILT UP.

THEY HOLD AND HOLD, AND ALL

OF A SUDDEN THEY LET GO.

THEY DON'T HAVE TO MOVE VERY

FAR.

IT ISN'T LIKE SOME GIANT

KASAM OPENING UP.

THEY SLIP A LITTLE AND IT

ROCKS THE BUILDINGS AND

CAUSES A GREAT DAMAGE.

IF THERE IS A NINE UP IN THE

BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF

DOLLARS IN DAMAGE, NOT TO

MENTION HOW MUCH HUMAN

LIFE.

JOHN?

PAT, JEWISH PEOPLE AROUND

THE WORLD ARE CELEBRATING

THE HOLIDAY OF PURIM.

IT REPORTS HOW THE JEWS RUN

A VICTORY OVER A GOVERNMENT

OFFICIAL'S PLOT TO DESTROY

THEM.

AS JOHN WAGGI EXPLAINS SOME

SAY THE STORY HAS PARALLELS

TODAYç WITHç THE THREATS

FACING MODERN ISRAEL.

Reporter: THESE

CHILDREN IN THE SOUTHERN

ISRAELI TOWN OF SDEROT ARE

SMILING, EVEN THOUGH THEY

WERE JUST UNDER A ROCKET

ATTACK.

IT IS ABOUT SMILING ALL

DAY LONG.

Reporter: AT THE

WESTERN WALL AND IN

SYNAGOGUE, THE BOOK OF

ESTHER IS READç FROM Aç

SCROLL.

IT SAYS THEY CONSPIRED TO

KILL OF THE JEWS ON ONE

DAY.

BUT QUEN ESTHER, WHO WAS

JEWISH, EXPOSED THE PLOT AND

TURNED THE TABLES.

SO THE JEWS WERE

VICTORIOUS.

AND THAT'S WHAT THEY

CELEBRATE.

AND

STREETS.

WE'RE VERY HAPPY IT IS

VERY QUIET RIGHT NOW.

YOU CAN SEE ALL OF THE

COSTUMES AND THE LAUGHTER.

THE PURPOSE OF THE

ROCKETS IS TO SCARE US.

AND EVERYTHING WE DO IS NOT

TO LET IT SCARE US.

Reporter: JUST A FEW

DAYS EARLY, IRANIAN--BACKED

JIHAD LAUNCHED DOZENS OF

ROCKETS ATçç SDEROT AND CITIES

NEARBY.

NEVER DID WE CANCEL ONE

EVENT, NOT BECAUSE OF THE

KASAM.

WE CELEBRATED, IF WE HAVE

ROCKETS OR WITHOUT ROCKETS,

IT'S OUR HOLIDAY.

Reporter: ASKED SDEROT

RESIDENTS IF THEY SEE A

CONNECTION BETWEEN THE STORY

OF PURIM AND TODAY?

IT IS HAPPENING IN

PERSIA, AND MAYBE THERE IS

SOME CONNECTION.çn

BUT WE'RE HERE AND WE'RE

FINE.

I THINK THE CONNECTION IS

NOT TO FORGET OUR ROUTINE

HERE.

WE STILL HAVE THIS TYPE OF

SEL CELEBRATION HERE.

ALWAYS, IN EVERY

GENERATION, THERE ARISES ONE

WHO WANTS TO KILL THE JEWS.

AND THEN THE CREATOR OF THE

WORLD OVERTURNS IT ALL.

[YELLING]

Reporter: HAPPQçç PURIM

HOLIDAY.

JOHN WAGGI, CBN NEWS.

PAT, DO YOU AGREE THERE

IS A CONNECTION?

Pat: CERTAINLY THERE IS

A CONNECTION.

I THINK WITHOUT QUESTION

THAT SPIRIT OF HAMAN

EXISTS.

THEY HAVE WANTED TO KILL THE

JEWS EVER SINCE.

THIS IS -- I THINK IT IS

SATANIC, I THINK THERE IS A

DEVIL, AND I THINK HE HATES

THE JEWS BECAUSE THEY ARE

EVIDENCEç THAT GODç LIVES AND

THAT HE EXISTS.

AND THE JEWS ARE NEVER GOING

TO BE DESTROYED.

GOD IS NOT GOING TO ALLOW

THAT TO HAPPEN, BUT HE

CERTAINLY DOES ALLOW THEM TO

GO THROUGH SOME TERRIBLE

TIMES.

THEY SAY THEY'RE THE CHOSEN

PEOPLE, AND I'M SURE MANY

WONDER, I WISH I WASN'T

QUITE CHOSEN FOR THIS

PRIVILEGE BECAUSE IT HURTS A

LOT.

BUT I REJOICE WITH THOSE

PEOPLE"i

CAN PARTY AND PLAY AND HAVE

GAMES AND FAMILIES

TOGETHER.

AND, YOU KNOW, THEY LAUGH AT

THE THREAT.

GOD BLESS THEM.

JOHN?

HERE IS A NEW STORY THAT

MIGHT MAKE A LOT OF PEOPLE

HAPPY.

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO TAKE

CHOCOLATE PILLS TO HELP KEEP

YOUR HEART HEALTHY?

IT COULD HAPPEN.

A BIG STUDY IS BEING

LAUNCHED TO SEE IF PILLS

CONTAINING NUTRIENTS IN DAç!RjTát COULD HELP WITH

HEART ATTACKS AND STROKES.

THE FLAVINOILS ARE VERY

HELPFUL.

THE STUDY IS BEING SPONSORED

BY THE NATIONAL HEART, LUNG,

AND BLOOD INSTITUTE, AND

MARS, WHICH MAKES M&M AND

SNICKERS.

RESULTS ARE EXPECTED IN

THREE YEARS.

SOME WILL BE DISAPPOINTED TO

LEARN THOSE PILLS WON'T

TASTE ANYTHING LIKE

CHOCOLATE BECAUSE THEY WON'Tç

HAVE THEç SUGARS FOUND IN

TYPICAL CANDY.

Pat: I DON'T KNOW IF

MARS WILL SEND ANYMORE

CANDIES.

MY FATHER LIVED A LONG TIME,

BUT I OUTLIVED HIM BY ONE

YEAR AND STILL GOING

STRONG.

HE DIDN'T EAT CHOCOLATE.

Terry: A GOOD

SNICKERS --

Pat: NOT SNICKERS.

Terry: DARK CHOCOLATE.

Pat:çç THEY HAVE A LOT OF

SUGAR.

IT IS THE 72% TO 88% COCOA

THAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE.

IT LOWERS YOUR BLOOD

PRESSURE, AND IT HELPS YOU

LOSE WEIGHT, AND IT TAKES

AWAY SOME OF YOUR APPETITE

CRAVINGS.

IT IS JUST WONDERFUL.

BUT DON'T OVERDUE IT.

YOU CAN OVERDUE ANYTHING.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, COMING UP,

A MESSAGE TO THE PRO-CHOICE

CROWD: ABORTION ISç NOTç THE

ONLY CHOICE.

SOMETIMES IN THE MIND OF

A WOMAN, BECAUSE OF THE

CULTURE, ABORTION IS A MORE

HUMANE CHOICE THAN CHOOSING

ADOPTION.

Terry: HEAR WHY 2014 IS

BEING CALLED THE YEAR OF

ADOPTION.

THAT'S NEXT.

çççççççç

Terry: MANY WOMEN

CHOICE ABORTION INSTEAD OF

ADOPTION BECAUSE THEY WORRY

THEIR CHILD COULD END UP IN

A BAD HOME OR HAVING A

HORRIBLE LIFE.

BUT ONE WOMAN WHO WASç

ADOPTED ADOPTED HERSELF IS

WORKING TO CHANGE THAT

IMPRESSION.

PAUL STRAND BRINGS US HER

REMARKABLE STORY.

Reporter: AT JANUARY'S

MARCH FOR LIFE, THE CALL

WENT OUT TO DECLARE 2014 THE

YEAR OF ADOPTION.

THE GOAL, SHOWCASE ITS

POSITIVE THINGS.

SOME MOTHERS BELIEVE IT ISç TO ABORT BABIES THAN

GIVE THEM THE FAMILIES THAT

WANT TO ADOPT THEM.

THEY SHOUT OUT, THIS ISN'T

TRUE.

MARISA CAN ONLY EXPRESS

GRATITUDE FOR THE MOM AND

DAD WHO HAD HER.

MY BIOLOGICAL PARENTS, I

HOPE, HAVE THE PEACE OF MIND

KNOWING THEY CHOSE LIFE FOR

ME AND A BEAUTIFULç LIFE FORç

ME.

OUR SIMILARITY IS QUITE

STRIKING, AND I LOOK AT MUCH

LIKE MY PARENTS AS MY

BROTHER, WHO IS THEIR

BIOLOGICAL PARNS.

Reporter PARENTS.

Reporter: AND MARISA

JUST HAD HER OWN BABY, AND

IT BRINGS NOTHING BUT HAPPY

MEMORIES OF BEING ADOPTED.

IT WAS PRESENTED TO ME

FROM BIRTH THAT THIS IS A

POSITIVE THING, IN THE WAY

OUR FAMILY WARç BUILT AND

IT IS SOMETHING WE ALWAYS

CELEBRATED.

THERE HAVE BEEN JOKES

THROUGH THE YEARS FROM MY

BROTHER, THAT IT TOOK A

LITTLE MORE TO GET ME.

I DIDN'T COME THE EASY WAY.

Reporter: SHE SEES IT

AS A PARALLEL TO CHRISTIANS'

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

WE SERVE A GOD WHO LOVES

ADOPTION.

HE IS -- HE WORKS THROUGH

ADOPTION.

HE ADOPTS US IN CHRIST.

Reporter: IN FACT,

MARISA AND HER FAMILY

BELIEVES THEIR FIRST;HSáá

WITHç THEM REFLECTS HOW JESUS

CHRIST SEES ALL HIS PEOPLE.

MY BROTHER WAS SIX YEARS

OLD WHEN I WAS ADOPTED.

THE AGENCY HAD A POLICY,

THAT THE OLDER SIBLING, IF

THEY WERE OLD ENOUGH, WOULD

BE THE ONE TO CARRY OUT THE

BABY ON THAT DAY TO PRESENT

THEM TO THE FAMILY.

Reporter: MARISA'S NEW

BROTHER SCOOPED HER UP IN

HIS ARMS TO PRESENT TO HER

PARENTS.

ç HEDI%9

HAD SPIKEY HAIR, AND HE

SAYS, ISN'T SHE PRETTY?

DOESN'T SHE LOOK JUST LIKE

ME?

Reporter: SHE DESCRIBES

WHAT THAT IS LIKE.

THE LOVE FROM THE FATHER,

ISN'T SHE PRETTY?

DOESN'T SHE LOOK JUST LIKE

ME?

A LOT OF TIME IN CRITIQUES

OFçç PRO-LIFERS, YOU HEAR, GO

OUT AND ADOPT A BABY IF YOU

CARE SO MUCH ABOUT THEM.

Reporter: MARISA SAYS

SHE FEELS SO MUCH LOVE FOR

HER OWN BABY, AND THE YOUNG

ETHIOPIAN BROTHER HER FATHER

ADOPTED.

THIS IS THE MOST LOVING

THING YOU HAVE DONE IN YOUR

LIFE.

Reporter: PRO-LIFERS

REALIZE THEY'RE GOINGç

AGAINST THEç GRAIN IN WHAT IS

NOW A PRO-ABORTION CULTURE.

PARTICULAR PLANNED

PARENTHOOD ABORTS TWICE AS

MANY PEOPLE THAT GET

ADOPTED.

SYMES IN THE MIND

SOMETIMESOMETIMES IN THE

MIND OF A WOMAN, BECAUSE OF

THE CULTURE,ç THEY THINKç

ABORTION IS A BETTER CHOICE

THAN ADOPTION.

I'M PREGNANT, BUT I'M NOT

IN A POSITION TO CARE FOR

THIS CHILD.

I WANT HIM TO HAVE A BETTER

FUTURE, TO BE WITH A FAMILY

WHO WILL LOVE HIM AND GIVE

HIM THE THINGS THAT I

CAN'T.

I'VE LEARNED THAT THROUGH

ADOPTION, I CAN CHOICE A

FAMILY WHO WILL RAISE HIM,

AND I CAN RECEIVE HELP

THROUGH THE RESTç OF MY

PREGNANCY.

Reporter: SURVEYS SHOW

THESE ADS WORK.

THEY AIRED DURING A

FOUR-YEAR PERIOD IN TEXAS,

AND THE NUMBER OF ABORTIONS

WENT DOWN.

THERE WAS A DECREASE IN

THE ABORTION B RATIO BY

OVER 40%.çç

SHE CALLED THE NUMBER AND

SHE CHOICE LIFE AND ADOPTION

FOR HER CHILD.

WE HAVE SEEN PEOPLE WHO HAD

THE APPOINTMENT AND CHOSE

LIFE AND ADOPTION STEADY.

Reporter: 2014 IS THE

YEAR OF ADOPTION.

AND ORGIZATIONS LIKE HERS

ARE ASKING PEOPLE TO INSTEAD

CHOICE ADOPTION.

Terry: MARISA HAS Aç

GREAT MESSAGE.ç

THERE ARE SO MANY FAMILIES

LONGING TO HAVE CHILDREN.

FAMILIES WHO LOVE CHILDREN,

AND WOULD LOVE TO ADD

ANOTHER TO THEIR CHILDREN.

IT IS GOD WHO PUTS THE

LONELY IN FAMILIES.

SO WE APPLAUD HER FOR HER

WORK.

STILL AHEAD, SHE IS AN

AUTHOR, A SINGER, AND A

DYNAMIC SPEAKER, AND MOST

IMPORTANTLY, A FORMER "700

CLUB" HOST.

SHEILA WALSH RETURNS HOME.

BUT, FIRST, WE'VEç GOTç YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

11-YEAR-OLD NOAH SAYS, "I

KNOW THERE IS A GOD, BUT HOW

DID GOD EVEN INITIALLY EXIST

TO CREATE ALL OF THIS?

IF THERE WAS NOTHING, HOW

WAS THERE EVEN A GOD?"

STAY TUNED FOR "BRING IT

ON."

PAT IS GOING TO TACKLE THAT

ONE WHEN WE RETURN.

çççççççç

Pat: THE PREEMINENT

CHRISTIAN INTERNATIONAL

GRADUATE SCHOOL IN THE

WORLD, REGENT UNIVERSITY.

AND YOU CAN BE PART OF IT.

PEOPLE ARE TAKING COURSES

ONLINE, AND WE JUST STARTED

IT IS AN ONLINE MOOK.

AND AFTER TWO MONTHS, THEY

HAVE STUDENTS FROM 144

COUNTRIES.

Terry: IT'S NOT TOO

LATE TO SIGN UP?

Pat: NO.

IT'S WHIT I'D WIDE OPEN AND

EXCITING.

AND THERE ARE THEç ONLINEç

PROGRAMS COMING ON LINE.

YOU'VE GOT LUX VERA, REGENT,

AND YOU CAN LOG ON.

I'VE GOT SOME THINGS HERE.

IT IS ONLY ONE OF 22

UNIVERSITIES IN THE NATION

THAT GET AN "A" RATING FOR

UNDERGRADUATE CORE

CURRICULUM FROM ACTA, THE

AMERICAN COUNCIL OFç TRUSTEESç

AND ALUMNI.

THE REGENT SCHOOL OF LAW WAS

PICKED, ACCORDING TO THE

CHRISTIAN REVIEW, AS ONE OF

THE TOP 10 LAW FACULTIES IN

AMERICA.

SO IT'S A BIG-TIME SCHOOL,

AND IT IS REALLY NICE.

THAT LUX VERA THING IS THE

ANSWER.

IT IS JUST INCREDIBLE.

Terry: IT OPENS THE

DOOR OF OPPORTUNITY.

Pat: IF YOU WANT TO

TAKE AN ONLINE COURSE, WE'VEç

GOT ALL KINDSç OF REGULAR

COURSES BEING TAUGHT

ONLINE.

YOU CAN GET A DEGREE ONLINE

AND A DOCTORAL DEGREE

ONLINE.

THIS MOOK IS JUST STARTING

AND IT'S VERY, VERY

SUCCESSFUL.

Terry: AND FREE.

Pat: AND FREE.

Terry: TIME TO "BRING

IT ON."

THIS FIRST QUESTION IS FROM

11-YEAR-OLD NOAH WHO SAYS,

"I KNOW THERE IS A GOD, BUTHOW DID GODç INITIALLY EXIST

TO CREATE ALL OF THIS.

IF THERE WAS NOTHING, HOW

WAS THERE EVEN A GOD?"

Pat: NOAH, YOU ARE A

VERY INTELLIGENT PERSON AND

I CONGRATULATE YOU ON DEEP

THINKING, BECAUSE WE NEED TO

DO THAT.

NOT JUST TAKE EVERYTHING FOR

GRANTED.

EXAM.

THAT'S GOOD.

THERE WAS A PHILOSOPHER

NAMED RAYMOND DECART, AND HE

CAME UP WITH Aç GREATç

STATEMENT, "I THINK

THEREFORE I AM."

AND SO HE BEGAN TO THINK, I

CAN THINK, SO I MUST BE HEAR

HERE BECAUSE I CAN THINK.

THE THING THAT THE BIBLE

SAYS IS WE'RE FEARFULLY AND

WONDERFULLY MADE.

THE HEAVENS DECLARE THE

GLORY OF GOD.

AND THE EARTH SHOWS HIS

HANDY WORK.

THE AWESOMENESS OF THE EARTH R&C @&Cú

SHOWS THE CREATOR.ç

THE HUMAN BEING SHOWS HANDY

WORK.

THE FACT THAT YOU'RE

THINKING, JUST LIKE THE

SAYING, "I THINK THEREFORE I

AM," YOU'RE THINKING AND

THAT'S VERY IMPORTANT.

NOW, THE BIBLE BEGINS WITH

THESE WORDS, "IN THE

BEGINNING, GOD..." AND WE

HAVE EVERYTHING IN THEç BIBLE

TOç FIND GOD, TO OBEY GOD, TO

BE BLESSED BY GOD, TO LIVE

WITH GOD, AND TO DIE IN HIS

PRESENCE.

WE HAVE ALL OF THAT, BUT WE

DO NOT HAVE AN EXPLANATION

OF WHERE HE CAME FROM.

AND PHILOSOPHERS HAVE TRIED

THROUGH THE CENTURIES TO

COME UP WITH REASONS, AND

THEY HAVE THE THING ABOUT

THE UNCAUSED CAUSE, AND IT

DOESN'T REALLY CUT IT.

AND I'M SORRY, ON THAT ONEt JUST GOT TOç TAKE ITDáU

BY FAITH.

YOU CAN SAY THE HEAVENS

DECLARE THE GLORY OF GOD.

I CAN SEE IT.

IT IS EVIDENT IN THE WORLD

AROUND ME THERE IS A

CREATOR.

BUT WHERE HE CAME FROM, HE

HAS NOT SEEN FIT TO TELL

US.

SO THAT ONE YOU'VE GOT TO

TAKE ON FAITH.

THE EXISTENCE OF GOD YOU CAN

SEE ALL AROUND YOU, THERE IS

NO QUESTION ABOUT IT.

AND YOU CAN SEE IT

YOURSELF.

THE FACT

PUTS YOU ABOVE THE OTHER

CREATURES, AND YOU'RE MADE

IN HIS IMAGE.

SO TAKE THAT, USE THE BIBLE,

LIVE FOR HIM.

THAT'S ALL I CAN TELL YOU.

Terry: THIS IS

JENNIFER, PAT, WHO SAYS,

"I'M EXPECTING A TAX REFUND

THIS YEAR.

IT IS SMALL, BUT STILL A

REFUND.

WHAT IS YOUR OPINION ABOUT

THE NEED TO TITHE ON TAX

REFUNDS?"

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

IT IS MONEY COMING TO YOU.

IT WASç TAKENç OUT SO IT

WASN'T TAXED, AND SO IT IS

COMING BACK.

AND IT WON'T HURT YOU.

IT IS KIND OF LIKE FREE

MONEY.

IT'S ONE OF THE EASIEST

THINGS TO TITHE OFF OF

BECAUSE IT IS SOMETHING YOU

WEREN'T PLANNING.

TITHE ON IT AND GOD WILL

BLESS YOU.

Terry: CALLISTA

SAYS, "I PICKED UP A BOOK

ABOUT NUMBERS, AND HOW

NUMBERS AND MATHEMATICS

FIGURE INTO EVERYTHING IN

THE UNIVERSE.ç

IT SAYSç PEOPLE, ANIMALS, AND

EVEN GOD HAVE AND ARE

NUMBERS.

IT REFERS BACK TO GREEK AND

HEBREW, AND SHOWS HOW EACH

LETTER IN THE ALPHABET IS A

NUMBER.

HOW DOES THIS NUMBER THING

FIT INTO THE SCHEME OF

THINGS, OR DOES IT?

SOMEHOW IN THE BACK OF MY

MIND SIT SEEMS EVIL?"

Pat: I BELIEVE IT IS.

THING THEY CALLED KABBALAH,

AND IT WAS A MYSTICAL

UNDERSTANDING.

THERE ARE CLEAR SIGNALS IN

THE BIBLE ABOUT NUMBERS.

THREE, THE NUMBER OF THE

TRINITY, FOUR, THE NUMBER OF

THE FOUR POINTS OF THE

COMPASS AND EARTH.

SEVEN IS A SPECIAL NUMBER OF

PERFECTION.

FIVE IS THE NUMBER OF

GRACE.

10 IS THE NUMBERç OF

COMPLETION.ç

THERE IS NO QUESTION THAT

GOD HAS A SHORTHAND THAT HE

SPEAKS TO US OUT OF THOSE

NUMBERS.

AND I DO BELIEVE WHEN YOU

LOOK AT MUSIC AND CERTAIN

THINGS THAT -- RHYTHMS OF

THE UNIVERSE, THERE ARE

NUMERICAL SCALES THAT WORK

TOGETHER.

AND SOMEBODY WHO CAN DO VERY

WELL WITH HIGHER MUSIC CAN

ALSO DID VERY WELL WITH

MATH.

THERE IS A MATHEMATICAL CODE

IN THE UNIVERSE.

BUT BEYOND THAT, I THINK WE

DON'T WANT TO GET INTO THE

KABBALAH AND FIND SOME

MYSTICAL THING ABOUT NUMBERS

THAT YOU LIVE BY.

Terry: OKAY, THIS IS

BARB WHO SAYS, "MY FATHER

ABUSED MY MOM FOR YEARS.

ONE DAY HE CAME TO MY HOME

AND CALLED ME HORRID NAMES.

Iç FELTç SO BAD O I WENT TO

MY PASTOR AND APOLOGIZED FOR

EVERYTHING I DID WRONG.

I DISOWNED HIM.

AND I'VE SINCE HAD CANCER

AND HOW DO I DEAL WITH THE

HEARTACHE?"

Pat: BECAUSE OF THAT

HURT, THAT MIGHT BE A CAUSE

OF THE CANCER.

YOU MIGHT Ja,

EMPTINESS AND LOSS, AND YOU

SORT OF TURNED OFF THE

TREMENDOUS SYSTEM YOU HAVE

TO PREVENT THAT.

THERE IS AN IMMUNE SYSTEM

THAT WILL FUNCTION WHEN

YOU'RE FORGIVING.

SO ALL I CAN SAY IS YOUR

FATHER SOUNDS LIKE AN

ABSOLUTE RAT, AND GOD, ONE

DAY, IS GOING TO DEAL WITH

HIM AND HE IS GOING TO BE

PUNISHED HORRIBLY.

BUT IN THE MEANTIME, ALL YOU

HAVE TO DO IS FORGIVE HIM.ç

I WOULDç JUST LET THIS GO OUT

OF YOUR MIND.

YOU'VE TRIED.

YOU'VE DONE EVERYTHING YOU

NEED TO DO.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO KEEP

REACHING OUT.

JUST SAY, GOD, I FORGIVE

HIM.

I ASK YOU TO FORGIVE HIM.

AND I PRAY YOUR BLESSING ON

HIM AND THEN GET ON WITH

LIFE.

BUT THAT'S WHAT YOU NEED TO

DO.

AND DON'T KEEP HARBORING

IT.

AND DOESN'T KEEP SAYING THE

HURT IS SO BAD AND WHY DID

HE DO THAT?ç

HEç IS A STINKER.

Terry: YOU'RE RIGHT.

LET GO OF IT.

IT BRINGS HEALTH AND

WELL-BEING.

Pat: YOU CANNOT KEEP

HARBORING IT.

IT WILL HURT YOURSELF.

SAY GOD IS GOOD, HE LOVES

ME, AND I'M WALKING WITH MY

HEAVENLY FATHER.

Terry: THAT'S THE LAST

OF OUR QUESTIONS FOR TODAY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

WELL, GROWINGçç UP, SANA WAS

SCARED OF DOCTORS, SO WHEN

SHE BROKE HER WRIST, SHE HAD

TO FACE HER BIGGEST FEAR.

AND SHE DID JUST THAT,

THANKS TO CBN.

Reporter: IN THE REMOTE

VILLAGE OF JALAL, WESTERN

INDIA, MOST VILLAGERS NEVER

HAVE SEEN A DOCTOR.

SO WHEN SANA FELL OUT OF A

MANGO TREE AND BROKE HER

WRIST, SHE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT

TO DO.

ç I WANTEDj

HELP ME.

BUT THEY LIVE AND WORK IN

ANOTHER VILLAGE.

I STAY WITH MY GRANDMOTHER.

Reporter: SANA AND HER

GRANDMOTHER ARE CHRISTIANS,

SO THEY PRAYED FOR A

MIRACLE.

SOON AFTER THEIR PRAYERS,

CBN'S BRAND NEW MEDICAL BUS

ARRIVED IN THEIR VILLAGE.

THE DOCTORS TREATED HER CUTS

AND SCRAPES, AND TOLD HER

SHE NEEDED TO GET A CAST ON

AT THE HOSPITAL.

BUT SANA WASN'T SO HAPPY.

SHE HAD NEVER BEEN TO A

HOSPITAL, ANDç SHEç HAD ONLY

HEARD SCARY RUMORS ABOUT

MODERN TECHNOLOGY.

I WAS VERY AFRAID.

I WENT WAS ON MY WAY TO MY

AUNT'S, IN ANOTHER VILLAGE,

TO HIDE FROM THE DOCTORS.

Reporter: WHILE THERE,

THEY CONVINCED HER TO GO TO

THE HOSPITAL FOR HELP.

I REALIZED THAT I WOULD

BE OKAY.

AND THAT CAST WOULD HEALç THE

BROKEN BONE.

Reporter: TO MAKE SURE

SHE WOULD MAKE A FULL

RECOVERY, CBN PAID FOR HER

RECOVERY AND THINGS IN÷

ADVANCE.

I AM SO HAPPY CBN GAVE ME

THE MEDICAL TREATMENT I

NEEDED.

AND NOW MY WRIST IS HEALING

NICELY.

YOU CARED FOR ME LIKE YOUR

OWN CHILD.

THANK YOU.

Terry: TIMES,ç NO MATTER

HOW MUCH DHe WANT TO HELP,

PARENTS DON'T HAVE THE MEANS

TO DO THAT.

THE FAMILY DOESN'T HAVE THE

MEANS TO DO THAT.

CBN HAS MEDICAL MISSIONS

HAPPENING ALL OF THE TIME

ALL AROUND THE WORLD,

REACHING OUT TO PEOPLE LIKE

SANA AND HER FAMILY, MAKING

A DIFFERENCE, SOLVING THEIR

PHYSICAL NEEDS, AND SHARING

THE LOVE OF GOD WITH THEM AS

çç

Terry: A FEW YEARS AGO,

SHEILA WALSH WAS SPEAKING TO

A GROUP OF WOMEN.

SHE ASKED THOSE IN THE

AUDIENCE TO WRITE DOWN HERE

BURDENS.

AS SHE WAS READING THROUGH

THEM, SHE REALIZED THEM.

THE WOMEN, NO MATTER YOUNG

OR OLD, WERE WRITING DOWN

THE SAME BURDENS, AND WERE

BEING TORMENTED BY THE STORM

INSIDE.

THE WOMEN WEREç ALL AWAREç

THAT THE STORM IS GOING ON

AROUND US ALL OF THE TIME.

WE FIND OURSELVES SOMEWHERE

ON THE CONTINUUM BETWEEN

EVERY DAY CHAOS, YOUR KIDS

LOST THEIR CAR KEYS, OR SOME

KIND OF REAL CRISIS.

WE'RE EITHER FEELING A STORM

APPROACHING OR WE'RE IN THE

MIDDLE OF THE STORM OR WE'RE

IN THE AFTERMATH OF THE

STORM.

YOU KNOW WHAT I'M LEARNING?

STORMS ARE NOT THE BAD

NEWS.

STORMS SHOW US WHAT'S IN US

AND WHAT WEç BELIEVE.ç

I HAVE LEARNED YOU CAN

ACTUALLY GROW THROUGH THE

STORM.

I BELIEVE TOGETHER WE CAN

LEARN FROM THE STORM INSIDE

WHEN WE EXPERIENCE THE CHAOS

OF WHAT WE FEEL FROM THE

TRUTH OF WHO WE ARE.

Terry: AMAZING AUTHOR,

SHEILA WALSH, WELCOME BACK.

IT IS SO GOOD TO HAVE YOU

HERE.

I WAS WATCHING IN THE

GREEN ROOM, ANDç YOU DO SUCH

A FABULOUS JOB.

Terry: I PAID HER TO

SAY THAT.

SHE DIDN'T.

Terry: I WANT TO TALK

ABOUT YOUR BOOK BECAUSE I

THINK IT IS SO INCREDIBLE.

YOU JUST HAVE AN INSIGHT

INTO THE SOULS OF PEOPLE AND

WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THEM.

HERE YOU ARE MINISTERING TO

WOMEN, WHICH YOU ARE DOING

FOR SO MANYç YEARS,ç AND YOU

HAD THEM WRITE DOWN THE

BURDENS OF THE THINGS ON

THEIR HEART.

WHEN YOU LOOKED AT THE LIST,

WERE YOU SURPRISED?

I WAS.

WITH WOMEN OF FAITH, WE HAVE

SEEN OVER FIVE MILLION WOMEN

COME TO THE CONFERENCES.

I HEARD A LOT OF THINGS LIKE

SHAME, REGRET, AND GUILT.

THIS WAS A SMALLER

CONFERENCE OF MINISTRY

LEADERS AND THEIR WIFE.

THESE WERE SEASONED WOMEN IN

THE FAITH.

I ASKED THEM IF YOU WERE TO

WRITE DOWN ONE THING ANDç

LEVL IT BEHIND, WHAT WOULD

IT BE?

AND IT WAS THE SAME THING I

HAVE HEARD OVER AND OVER.

ONE WOMAN SAID SHE HAD AN

ABORTION HER HUSBAND DIDN'T

EVEN KNOW ABOUT.

DRUG ADDICTION, AND ALL

SORTS OF THINGS KEPT UNDER

THE COVERS BECAUSE THEY'RE

ASHAMED.

TO ME, WHEN YOU WALK THROUGH

THE STORM, IT THROWS UP

TRASH ON THE SHORE LINE.

WHEN YOU WALK THROUGH A

PHYSICALç STORM,ç IT THROWS UP

THE TRASH IN YOUR HEART.

THAT'S THE GOOD NEWS BECAUSE

THEN YOU CAN SEE WHAT YOU

HAVE TO DEAL WITH.

Terry: THE ENEMY IS

JUST SUCH A LIAR.

AND SHAME LOCKS US UP SO

MUCH, MORE THAN ALMOST

ANYTHING ELSE, DOESN'T IT,

BECAUSE IT STAYS IN THE DARK

PLACE?

THAT'S RIGHT.

ONE OF THE WRITERS I LOVE

SAID, "SHAME IS LIKE A

SQUATTER THAT REFUSES TO

MOVE.

HE WILL JUST FOU GET OUT."ç

WHAT I TRY TO REMIND WOMEN

IS CHRIST WHO KNEW NO SHAME

BECAME SHAME SO WE COULD BE

FREE.

YOU NEED TO REMEMBER THAT

THE ENEMY IS A LIAR.

AND NOT ONLY THAT, HE IS THE

ACCUSER OF GOD'S CHILDREN.

SO FOR EVERY CONDEMNATION, I

THINK WE NEED A DECLARATION

OF WHO WE ARE IN CHRIST.

Terry: THAT'S A GREAT

RETALIATION TO THAT WHOLE

THING.

PEOPLE HAVE STORMS GOING ON

INSIDE OF THEM.

RIGHT NOW, SAYING I'VE GOT

SOME OF THOSE HIDDEN PLACES,

SOME OF THOSE CLOSETS THAT

ARE CLUTTERED WITH JUNK I'VE

NEVER TAKEN CARE OF, WHAT DO

YOU SAY?

I SPENT TWO YEARS ON THIS

BOOK, TERRY, BECAUSE I

WANTED TO DO A BOOK, A BIBLE

STUDY, AND A D.V.D. SERIES.

SO WE COULD REALLY, IN

DEPTH, LOOK AT HERE IS THE

REALITY, AND WHAT DOES

SCRIPTURES SAY ABOUT THIS.çç

THIS IS THE CHAOS OF WHAT

YOU FEEL FOR THE TRUTH OF

WHO YOU ARE.

WE ARE LIVING IN DIFFERENT

DAYS.

AND THESE ARE THE DAYS TO

DECIDE WHO WE ARE AND WHO'S

WE ARE BECAUSE IT WILL GET

DARKER.

THESE ARE THE DAYS TO GET

RID OF ALL OF THE TRASH AND

TO STAND STRONG AS A WOMAN

AND A MAN OF GOD THROUGH

THESE DARK TIMES.

Terry: YOU'VE BEEN

THROUGH SOME STORMS INJuá

LIFE.

ç YEAH.

I WENT FROM SITTING WHERE

YOU'RE SITTING, FROM BEING

THE CO-HOST OF "THE 700

CLUB" IN THE MORNING, AND IN

THAT EVENING I WAS LOCKED IN

A PSYCH WARD, AT THE SAME

AGE MY FATHER WAS WHEN HE

TOOK HIS OWN LIFE IN A

PSYCHIATRIC HOSPITAL.

Terry: THAT HAS GOT TO

BE SCARY?

I WAS.

BUT WHEN PAULç SAYSç IN ROMANS

8, I'M CONVINCED THAT

NOTHING CAN SEPARATE US FROM

THE LOVE OF CHRIST.

I THINK SOMETIMES HE WILL

TAKE US TO THE PLACE WE

THINK FEELS LIKE HELL, BUT

HE SAYS, I'M COMING WITH YOU

AND YOU WILL KNOW THAT

NOTHING CAN SEPARATE YOU.

Terry: AND, SHEILA,

SOMETIMES WE HAVE TO GO TO

THAT PLACE TO UNDERSTAND

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE SET

FREE.

TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE

DEATH OF YOURç DAD.ç

I KNOW THAT WAS A CATALYST

IN YOUR LIFE FOR A LOT OF

YEARS OF HIDDEN FEELINGS AND

JUST A GAP BETWEEN YOU AND

YOUR MOM.

TALK ABOUT THAT.

WELL, IT'S INTERESTING

BECAUSE CHILDREN ARE THE

BEST GATHERERS OF

INFORMATION.

THEY MISS NOTHING.

AND AS A 5-YEAR-OLD, I

DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THAT MY

FATHER HAD BRAIN DAMAGE, AND

THAT'S WHY HE TRIED TO KILL

ME.

ALL I UNDERSTOOD WAS THIS

MAN I ADORED NOW SEEMEDç TO

HATE ME.ç

AND IT IS INTERESTING

BECAUSE ALL OF THOSE YEARS

WENT BY AND MY MOM AND I

NEVER TALKED ABOUT IT.

Terry: DID SHE ASSUME

YOU UNDERSTOOD?

I THINK SHE THOUGHT, IF I

WANTED TO TALK, I WOULD.

BUT SHE DIDN'T SEE THE

DIALOGUE THAT WENT UP IN MY

HEAD.

WHEN I ENDED UP IN THE

HOSPITAL, SHE CAME OVER,

TOO.

AND ONE MORNING SHE AND I

WERE IN A SESSION, AND I

SAID, I'M JUSTç TIRED OF

TRKING TO GET IT ALL RIGHT.

I SAID, MOM, I'M SO TIRED OF

YOU THINKING IT WAS MY FAULT

THAT DAD DIED.

AND I HEARD THIS GUTTERAL

WAIL COMING FROM MY MOTHER.

AND I DIDN'T KNOW SHE FELT

GUILTY BECAUSE ALL THOSE

YEARS SHE DIDN'T HAVE MY

FATHER REMOVED FROM THE

HOME.

IT WAS A TIME OF TREMENDOUS

HEALING FOR US.

Terry: I UXOUGHT, ASç

WAS READING YOUR BOOK AND

ALL OF THE WISE COUNSEL YOU

HAVE FOR MEN AND WOMEN

THROUGH DIFFICULT TIMES, WE

NEED TO HANG ON TO THE FACT

IF WE JUST BRING THE LIGHT

INTO THE DARKNESS, IT CANNOT

BE EXTINGUISHED BY THE

DARKNESS.

THAT'S SO TRUE.

AND ONE OF THE BOOKS I'M

READING IS ESTHER.

WHO KNOWS YOU CAME TO THE

KINGDOM FOR SUCHç A TIME ASç

THIS.

THEN SHE TAKES THREE DAYS

AWAY, VERY SIGNIFICANT, TO

FAST AND PRAY.

AND IT IS LIKE YO TO KNOW

THE RESURRECTION POWER, YOU

HAVE TO BE READY TO DIE.

BY THE TIME ESTHER WENT IN

TO SEE THE KING, SHE WAS A

DEAD WOMAN AND IT IS HARD TO

HURT A DEAD WOMAN.

Terry: THERE IS SO MUCH

IN THIS BOOK.

THEçç SUBTITLE IS -- YOU'RE

RIGHT, "TRADE THE CHAOS OF

HOW YOU FEEL FOR THE TRUTH

OF WHO YOU ARE," AND IT IS

THE TRUTH THAT SETS US

FREE.

JESUS CLEARLY SAID IT.

IT IS CALLED "THE STORM

INSIDE," AND IT IS AVAILABLE

IN STORES NATIONWIDE.

SHEILA, YOU'RE AN AMAZING

SPEAKER AND AN AMAZING

WRITER.

AND IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU

HERE.

THANK YOU, TERRY.

IT IS LOVELY TO BE BACK.

Terry: GET THE BOOK.

IT IS WORTH THE PURCHASE.ç

PAT?

Pat: ITç IS SO GOOD SO

TO SEE SHEILA.

YES, WE DID SIT TOGETHER,

AND SHE GAVE ME A HARD TIME

ALMOST EVERY DAY IN THAT

WONDERFUL SCOTTISH BROGE.

COMING UP, A GOSPEL SINGER

WHO LOST HER VOICE.

WE'LL TELL YOU WHERE SHE

FOUND IT, COMING UP NEXT.

çççççççççç

Terry: YOU JUST SAW A

PROMO FOR THE UPCOMING

MOVIE, "GOD'S NOTç DEAD."ç

IT RELEASES LATER THIS WEEK

IN THEATERS ACROSS THE

COUNTRIES.

YO COUNTRY.

AND YOU CAN GET A SNEAK

PEEK.

Pat: DIANA RANSOM HAD A

GREAT FAMILY AND A GREAT

VOICE.

AT THE AGE OF FIVE, DIANA

COMBINED THE TWO.

BY THE TIME SHE WAS AN

ADULT, SHE HAD LOST THEM

BOTH.çç

* THE PAIN I ENDURED HAD

ENGULFED ME *

Reporter: FOR AS LONG

AS SHE CAN REMEMBER, DIANA

RANSOM LOVED TO SING.

THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT

SINGING FROM YOUR SOUL AND

JUST OPENING YOUR MOUTH AND

BEING ABLE TO JUST CRY OUT,

SO TO SPEAK.

AND THAT'S WHAT SINGING DOES

FOR ME.

Reporter: SHE GREW UP

IN A CHPi&Q%9 HOME @íD SANG

IN HER FAMILY'S GOSPEL

GROUP.

SHE DIDN'T HAVE A PERSONAL

RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST,

BUT SHE LEARNED ABOUT HIM

FROM HER MOTHER.

MY MOTHER WAS THE BEDROCK

OF THE FAMILY, THE REAL

MATRIARCH, AND SHE WAS WHAT

WE WOULD CALL A WARRIOR FOR

GOD.

Reporter: BUT WHEN

DIANA TURNED 21, HER MOTHER

DIED.

I FELT LOST AND CHEATED.ç

I GOT VERY, VERY ANGRY WITH

GOD BECAUSE I FELT AS THOUGH

HE SHOULD HAVE SPARED HER.

Reporter: SHE LEFT HER

CHURCH AND HER SINGING GROUP

AND MOVED TO ATLANTA TO

PURSUE A CAREER IN R & B

MUSIC.

BUT OVER TIME SHE STARTED

LOSING HER VOICE.

I COULDN'T TALK ABOVE A

WHISPER.çç

RASPING, CHOKING, TRYING TO

SWALLOW WAS LIKE RAZOR

BLADES.

Reporter: SHE WENT TO

THE DOCTOR AND DISCOVERED

SHE HAD NODULES OR CYSTS ON

HER THROAT.

THE DOCTOR TOLD DIANA SHE

WOULD NEVER SING AGAIN.

AND I REMEMBER SITTING IN

THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE AND

FEELINGçSO NUMB.

THE SAME GOD THAT TOOK MY

MOTHER, AND NOW YOU'LL TAKE

MY VOICE.

YOU TAKE MY MOM, YOU TAKE MY

VOICE, WHAT GOOD ARE YOU.

Reporter: FOR TWO YEARS

SHE WANTED NOTHING TO DO

WITH GOD.

WITH HER MUSIC CAREER GONE,

SHE FELT EMPTY AND WITHOUTDIRECTION, THATç IS, UNTIL

ONE DAY WHEN A FRIEND

INVITED HER TO CHURCH.

IT WAS LIKE WAKING UP

AFTER FALLING ASLEEP.

AND YOU DIDN'T EVEN KNOW YOU

WERE ASLEEP.

SOMETHING WOKE UP AND SAID,

YOU NEED TO GO.

THIS TIME NO EXCUSE.

Reporter: AFTER THEçç

SERMON, THE PASTOR GAVE

DIANA A PERSONAL MESSAGE.

HE SAID THERE IS A REASON

AND A PURPOSE FOR THAT GIFT

THAT HE HAS GIVEN YOU.

YOU KNOW WHAT CHANGED FOR ME

WAS HE CARED ENOUGH ABOUT ME

TO GET WORD TO ME, EVEN

THOUGH I HAD WALKED AWAY

FROM HIM.

IT KIND OF SHOWED ME HE

NEVER LEFT ME.çç

AND EVEN THOUGH, YOU KNOW,

YOU HEAR FOLKS SAY, YOU

DON'T GET ANGRY AT GOD.

AND I WAS ANGRY.

AND I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT

THAT THAT WAS GROUNDS FOR

DEATH.

BUT HE LOVED ME AND WAS

UNDERSTANDING ENOUGH TO SAY,

YEAH, I KNOW YOU'RE MAD, BUT

IT'S OKAY.

AT THAT MOMENT Iç2SAID, YES.

HERE I AM, GOD.

HERE I AM.

USE ME.

I'M YOURS.

AND I JUST SURRENDERED.

Reporter: DIANA GAVE

HER LIFE TO CHRIST.

SHE JOINED THE CHURCH AND

EVEN THOUGH SHE COULDN'T

SING, SHE REJOINED HER

FAMILY GOSPEL GROUP.

AND SHE LIP-SYNCHED THE

WORDS.

IT WAS AN ACT OF#S E-OBEDIENCE TOç BE UP AND JUST

IN POSITION TO SAY, OKAY, IF

THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT TO

USE, I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU'RE

GOING TO DO IT, BUT I'M

HERE.

Reporter: STILL, SHE

BELIEVED GOD WOULD RESTORE

HER VOICE.

AND ONE NIGHT AT A CONCERT

IT HAPPENED.

MY VOICE JUST CAME BACK

IN FRONT OF THE WHOLE

CHURCH.

AND THE CHURCH WASç PACKED.

THAT CHURCH.

I DIDN'T STOP SINGING.

BECAUSE I WAS STANDING

THERE, JUST LIKE IS THIS --

IS THIS REAL?

EVERYONE JUST BLESSED GOD.

IT WAS AMAZING TO SEE SO

MANY PEOPLE REJOICING FOR

WHAT GOD WAS DOING.

FORç JUST LITTLE OLDç ME, WHO

HAD WALKED AWAY FROM HIM.

Reporter: DIANA WENT

BACK TO THE DOCTOR.

THIS TIME SHE GOT A

DIFFERENT REPORT.

YOUR VOCAL CHORDS ARE

COMPLETELY CLEAN.

I NEED YOU TO KNOW I'M A MAN

OF MEDICINE, NOT MIRACLES.

AND HE WAS A FAMILY DOCTOR.

AND HE SAID, WELL, BABY

GIRL, THAT'S A MIRACLE

BECAUSE THEY'REç JUST0Gñ

THEY'RE JUST GONE.

THEY DIDN'T SHRINK.

THEY DIDN'T GET SMALLER.

THEY'RE JUST GONE.

Reporter: DIANA SAYS HE

KNEW GOD HAD HEALED HER.

I WAS IN AWE, JUST IN

AWE.

HIS HAND WAS ON MY LIFE AND

IT WAS GOOD.çç

* KNOW THAT I HEAR YOUR

VOICE *

Reporter: DIANA WENT ON

TO PURSUE HER DREAMS.

HERELEASED A NEW

ALBUM, AND SHE SAYS HER

RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST IS

BETTER THAN IT HAS EVER

BEEN.

HE SHOWED ME THAT I AM A

DIVINE HEALER, AND DON'T YOU

EVER FORGET WHO I AM AND

WHAT ICAN DO.

HE INVITED ME TOç GET TOç KNOW

HIM.

I HAD TO THROW OUT A LOT OF

WHAT I THOUGHT GOD WAS SO I

COULD GET TO KNOW WHO HE

IS.

GOD SAYS, YOU TRY ME.

YOU GET TO KNOW ME.

I WANT A RELATIONSHIP WITH

YOU.

Pat: HE IS A DIVINE

HEALER.

OH, IF WE COULD JUST FEEL

THE POWER OF GOD.

I THINK A LOT ABOUT2át

POWER OFç GOD, HOW ABOUT HOW

GREAT THIS UNIVERSE IS.

AND WHEN YOU READ THE

BIBLE -- I WAS READING

LEVITICUS, AND HE SAYS, YOU

SHALL NOT DO THIS FOR I

AM -- AND THE BIBLE WE SAYS

LORD.

BUT THE BIBLE WE HAVE SAYS,

"HE WHO CAUSES EVERYTHING TO

BE."

THAT'S HISç NAME, YAWAY,

JEHOVAH.

MASTERFUL, HE IS IN CHARGE

OF EVERYTHING.

HIS WISDOM EXCEEDS ANYTHING

WE CAN COMPREHEND.

HIS POWER IS LIMITLESS.

AND ALL HE ASKS US TO DO IS

BELIEVE HIM, AND HE'LL DO

THE REST.

Terry: PAT, THIS IS

JANICE, AND SHE LIVES IN

MASSACHUSETTS.

AND SHEç EXPERIENCEDç TERRIBLE

PAIN, LIMITED RANGE OF

MOTION IN HER RIGHT ARM AND

SHOULDER.

SHE HAD BURSITIS.

SHE SAW TWO DOCTORS ABOUT

HER CONDITION.

ONE WANTED TO PERFORM

SURGERY.

SHE REFUSED.

AND THE SECOND GAVE HER

CORTISONE INJECTIONS AND

THEY DIDN'T HELP.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, AND, PAT, YOU

SAID, "GOD IS HEALING YOUR

RIGHT SHOULDER."

AND SHE SAID SHE DIDN'T FEELç

ANYTHING.-BUT LATER THAT DAY SHE WAS

DOING THE DISHES AND SHE

REALIZED SHE PLACED SOME ON

THE TOP SHELF AND REALIZED

SHE WAS HEALED.

Pat: HERE IS ONE FROM

WENDY, WHO LIVES IN

LOS ANGELES, AND SHE HAD A

RASH ON HER CHEEKS, AND IT

FELT LIKE FIRE.

ONE DAY SHE HEARD TERRY SAY

THIS, QUOTE,"YOU HAVE A

BURNING SKIN CONDITION, BUT

IT IS NOT FROM A BURN.çç

IT'S LIFE-INTERRUPTING.

IMMEDIATELY THE BURNING

SENSATION AND RASH WENT

AWAY, AND IT HASN'T

RETURNED."

AND SHE IS PRAISING GOD AND

WE'RE PRAISING GOD WITH

HER.

LET'S PRAY TOGETHER.

FATHER, THANK YOU.

OH, SHOW US YOUR POWER,

LORD.

SHOW US YOUR GREATNESS.

TEACH US HOW WONDERFUL YOU

ARE.

AND PLEASE ACCEPT OUR

PRAISE.
