JEZELLE WAS EXCITED ABOUT

MOVING TO ARIZONA, AND SHE

LANDED A GREAT JOB AS A

MID-MARKETING MANAGER IN A

MARKETING FIRM.

AND THEN THE RECESSION HIT

AND SHE WAS LAID OFF.

MY WHOLE WORLD FELL

APART, AND UNEMPLOYMENT

HADN'T KICKED IN YET.

Reporter: JEZELLE SOON

WENT THROUGH HER SAVINGS AND

HAD A HARD TIME KEEPING UP

WITH HER BILLS.

I WAS UNEMPLOYED FOR A

MONTH, AND THE CREDITORS

WERE CALLING, AND I DIDN'T

WANT TO DEAL WITH MY

PROBLEMS.

BUT I ALSO KNEW AT THAT

TIME, TOO, THAT THE ONLY

THING THAT WOULD HELP ME OUT

OF THIS WOULD BE GOD.

Reporter: AT THE TIME,

SHE WOULD OCCASIONALLY GIVE

TO HER CHURCH.

NOW WHEN THINGS WERE AT

THEIR WORST, SHE DECIDED IT

WAS TIME TO START TITHING

FAITHFULLY.

GOD SAYS, TEST ME ON

THIS.

I SAID, OKAY, GOD, I'M

TESTING YOU ON THIS.

I'VE GOT NOWHERE ELSE TO

GO.

I WAS PROMPTED TO GIVE 10%

OF WHAT WAS IN MY BANK

ACCOUNT.

IF I HAD $21, I WOULD GIVE

$2.10.

Reporter: SHE DID THE

SAME WHEN HER FIRST

UNEMPLOYMENT CHECK ARRIVED.

I IMMEDIATELY WROTE A

CHECK TO MY CHURCH THAT

SUNDAY FOR 10% OF THAT.

AND THEN I GOT A CALL FOR A

CONTRACT JOB.

SO I WORKED THAT CONTRACT

JOB FOR ABOUT FOUR MONTHS.

Reporter: JEZELLE

LANDED MORE CONTRACTS, BUT

THE WORK WASN'T STEADY.

SO IN 2012, SHE STARTED A

SIDE JOB AS A SOCIAL

CONSULTANT.

WITHIN FIVE MONTHS, SHE WAS

ABLE TO WORK ON HER BUSINESS

FULL-TIME.

I HAD ENOUGH MONEY COMING

IN, AND THAT WAS MY GOAL, BY

JUNE TO BE SELF SUFFICIENT.

Reporter: SHE ALSO

STARTED GIVING TO CBN.

I SEE THE STORY OF THESE

VILLAGES IN THESE

THIRD-WORLD COUNTRIES THAT

DON'T EVEN HAVE FRESH,

DRINKABLE WATER.

SO JUST THE FACT THAT YOU

CAN BRING IN A WELL AND

PEOPLE CAN HAVE FRESH

DRINKING WATER IS SOMETHING

WE TAKE FOR GRANTED EVERY

DAY.

I WANT TO BE A PART OF

THAT.

Reporter: TODAY HER

BUSINESS IS THRIVING.

I HAVE NOT HAD TO PAY FOR

ANY MARKETING OR ADVERTISING

OR PAY TO JOIN ANY

ORGANIZATION.

I JUST GO NETWORKING, AND

THE PEOPLE START CALLING

ME.

BUSINESS JUST KEEPS FALLING

AND MY LAP.

Reporter: JEZELLE

BELIEVES GOD BLESSES HER

BUSINESS AND HER LIFE

BECAUSE SHE IS FAITHFUL TO

GIVE.

IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE

TO THE HUMAN BRAIN, IT

REALLY DOESN'T.

BUT GOD SAYS, TRUST ME AND

LEAN NOT ON YOUR OWN

UNDERSTANDING.

THAT'S WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO.

YOU JUST HAVE TO TRY IT AND

TEST GOD ON IT.

AND IT REALLY WORKS.

IT REALLY WORKS.
