THAT HAS HAPPENED IN YOUR

LIFE.

AND AT NUMBER ONE...

THE FIRST WORDS OUT OF

MY MOUTH WAS JESUS.

Efrem: POWERFUL WORDS

WITH DENISE MATTHEWS, WHO

DIED ON MONDAY.

SHE CAME TO FAME IN THE

EARLY '80 AS VANITY,

PRINCE'S PRO SHAY.

PROTEGE.

SHE LATER GAVE HER LIFE TO

JESUS.

SHE WAS 57.

> KENNY LATTIMORE IS A

MAN OF DEEP FAITH.

SOME SAY HE RETURNS TO HIS

ROOTS IN HIS SEVENTH

STUDIO ALBUM.

HIS MUSIC JOURNEY IS THE

FOCUS OF THE INTERVIEW IN

"STUDIO 5".

* I CAN FEEL IT

Efrem: THERE IS NO

MISTAKING THE VOICE OR THE

LYRIC OF KENNY LATTIMORE.

THE R & B CROONER IS THE

KING OF THE LOVE BALLAD.

* SO LET GO OF YOUR

WORRIES TONIGHT *

Efrem: YOUR LATEST

PROJECT IS "ANATOMY OF A

LOVE SONG."

YES.

Efrem: TELL ME ABOUT

IT.

IT WAS A COLLECTION OF

ALL OF THE ELEMENTS OF THE

LOVE SONGS I HAD SUNG

THROUGH THE YEARS AND MY

MUSICAL INFLUENCES.

I GREW UP LISTENING TO MY

PARENTS' MUSIC, THE STEVE

WONDERING, SHAC CHAKA KAHN.

I LISTENED TO GOSPEL AND I

WAS TRAINED A CLASSICAL

SINGER AS WELL, AND THE

CHAMBER MUSIC, ALL OF

THAT, BUT WHEN I THOUGHT

ABOUT LOVE SONGS, THERE

WERE CERTAIN ELEMENTS TO

THE LYRIC THAT I WOULD SAY

IS, LIKE, THE HEART OF THE

SONG.

AND ALL OF THE MUSICAL

ACCOMPANIMENT AND

EVERYTHING BRING THE

EMOTION, THE MOOD, THE

LIGHT, AND THE VEINS TO

IT.

Efrem: IF I READ

CORRECTLY, YOU WERE

WORKING ON THIS FOR FIVE

YEARS?

FIVE YEARS.

IF YOU'RE IN A 20-YEAR

RELATIONSHIP -- AND THAT'S

WHAT IT HAS BEEN FOR ME, A

20-YEAR RELATIONSHIP WITH

THE INDUSTRY -- AND THERE

ARE TIMES WHEN YOU DON'T

FEEL AS IN LOVE.

AND YOU HAVE TO GO BACK

AND EXAMINE, WHY AM I

DOING THIS AGAIN?

FOR ME, I REALLY PRAYED,

AND I SAID, LORD, I'VE

ACHIEVED MY NATURAL GOALS.

I'VE BEEN NOMINATED FOR

ALL OF THESE AWARDS, AND

I'VE WON SOME.

I HAVE THE HOUSE AND THE

CAR AND THE MONEY AND THE

KIDS, AND WHATEVER IT WAS

THAT IS GENERALLY PEOPLE'S

DREAMS, I HAD ACHIEVED.

SO I WAS, LIKE, WHAT IS

THE REAL LEGACY OF IT ALL?

AND HE SPOKE BACK TO ME,

TO THE HEARTS OF WOMEN, TO

THE MINDS OF MEN,

ENCOURAGING THEM IN LOVE.

SO I SAID, OKAY, I'M GOING

TO SAY THIS WHEN I GET ON

STAGE.

EVERY TIME I GO UP, I'M

GOING TO LET PEOPLE KNOW

THIS IS MY PURPOSE.

IF YOU KNOW YOUR PURPOSE

AND YOU CAN STATE THAT

OUT, FOR WHATEVER YOUR

ABOUT TO DO, IT GIVES ME

AN EXTRA KICK, TO A DEGREE

WHERE I CAN DIE TO SELF.

WE PREPARED AND WE

PLANNED TO PRESENT GREAT

MUSIC, AND THAT WE MAY

TAKE ALL OF THE THINGS ON

PEOPLE'S MINDS AWAY, JUST

FOR A MINUTE.

* HOW CAN I

* HOW CAN I GIVE YOU ALL

OF THE LOVE THAT I CAN *

Efrem: PRAYER AND

PURSUING GOD'S PURPOSE

HAVE LONG BEEN PART OF

THIS SINGER'S LIFE, EVEN

BEFORE HIS SIGNATURE

SONGS.

* ALL I AM IS FOR YOU

Efrem: HE RELEASED

THAT MUCH-PLAYED WEDDING

SONG "FOR YOU" IN 1996,

AND HIS FIRST SOLO

PROJECT, "FROM THE SOUL OF

MAN."

> YOUR FAITH, WHEN DID

IT BEGIN?

HOW YOUNG WERE YOU?

MY EARLY LEAST MEMORY

WAS AT EIGHT YEARS OLD.

I REMEMBER GOING TO A

LITTLE PENTACOSTAL

CHRISTIAN CAMP.

IT WAS PRETTY INTENSE.

SO AT EIGHT YEARS OLD, I

HEARD THIS THING ABOUT

JESUS.

AND IT WAS, LIKE, OKAY.

AND I LEARNED MY FIRST

SCRIPTURE, LUKE 10: 19.

FOR ME, THAT WAS A GREAT

SCRIPTURE AS A KID.

I KEPT THAT IN MY LIFE.

I HEARD GOSPEL MUSIC FOR

THE FIRST TIME.

BUT ALL OF THAT SEPARATED

ME.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHY.

BUT I KNEW THAT I WAS

DIFFERENT AND I HAD

CONVICTIONS ABOUT THINGS

THAT I COULDN'T

UNDERSTAND.

AND I BELIEVED THAT I

TRULY DID ACCEPT JESUS AS

MY LORD AND SAVIOR AT

EIGHT.

AND AS A RESULT, THE HOLY

SPIRIT BEGAN TO LEAD MY

LIFE, WHERE EVEN BEYOND MY

LACK OF KNOWLEDGE, HE WAS

GUIDING ME TO WHERE HE

WANTED ME TO BE.

BUT AT 14, HIGH MOM AN MY MOM AND I

WENT TO THIS LITTLE CHURCH

THAT WAS STARTING IN

SILVERSPRINGS, MARYLAND.

AND THEN I HEARD SOMEONE

TEACH THE GOSPEL FOR THE

FIRST TIME.

THERE WAS SOMETHING

DIFFERENT ABOUT PREACHING,

PARTICULARLY IN AN

AFRICAN-AMERICAN CHURCH.

WHERE YOU WOULD LISTEN TO

PEOPLE AND THINK, I KIND

OF UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY'RE

SAYING.

WHAT'S GOING ON?

AND THEN EVENTUALLY I

HEARD SOMEONE TEACH THE

GOSPEL AND PLAINLY SAY, DO

YOU REALIZE THIS IS WHY

JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS?

AND WE STOOD THERE, AND WE

WERE, LIKE -- I LOOKED AT

MY MOM AND I WAS, LIKE,

WOW, HE DID THIS FOR ME?

Efrem: FAITH

SUSTAINED KENNY THROUGH A

VERY PUBLIC AND BITTER

DIVORCE.

HE OPENED UP ABOUT THAT

WHEN OUR INTERVIEW

CONTINUES, RIGHT HIGHE HERE ON

"STUDIO 5".

Efrem: SINGER KENNY

LATTIMORE IS PROBABLY BEST

KNOWN FOR LOVE SONGS.

HIS POPULAR BALLAD "FOR

YOU" IS A SIGNATURE

WEDDING SONG EVEN TODAY.

BUT THAT SONG MAY ARE HARD

TO TAKE WHEN YOUR PERSONAL

LOVE LIFE IS FALLING

APART.

HE OPENS UP ABOUT PERSONAL

LOVE LOST.

*

Efrem: KENNY

LATTIMORE ISN'T JUST THE

KING OF THE LOVE BALLAD.

HE IS ALSO A BIT OF A SEX

SYMBOL, AN IMAGE THAT IS

MORE OFTEN PUSHED BY MUSIC

EXECUTIVES.

I THINK I HAD ALWAYS

BEEN SORT OF A RELUCTANT

SEX SYMBOL IN THE MUSIC

INDUSTRY.

BECAUSE OF MY RELATIONSHIP

WITH THE LORD, I WANTED TO

LIFT THE STANDARD.

I WANTED TO BE BY BEE BEE

AND C.C. WYNAN.

Efrem: LIVING THROUGH

THE PAIN OF HIS MARRIAGE

FALLING APART.

I RECENTLY WENT THROUGH

A DIVORCE IN CHRIST.

AND PUBLICLY.

AND PUBLIC STAND, AND ALL

KIND OF DIFFERENT THINGS

THAT WAS INTERESTING TO

ME.

IF I DIDN'T KNOW THE LORD,

I DON'T KNOW QUITE HOW I

WOULD HAVE HANDLED IT.

Efrem: YOU MENTION

GOING THROUGH DIVORCE AND

THE PUBLIC SCRUTINY.

WHAT WERE YOUR

CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD

LIKE DURING THAT TIME?

I KNEW THAT THERE WAS

SOME THINGS THAT WERE NOT

GOING WELL, THAT WERE JUST

NOT WORKING, TO THE POINT

WHERE I ACTUALLY WAS,

LIKE, I THINK I'M OUT.

I'M GETTING OUT OF THIS.

AND I HAD A WONDERFUL

PASTOR -- HE IS NO LONGER

WITH US, PASTOR FRANK

WILSON -- WHO TOLD ME,

DON'T DO IT.

BECAUSE THE THINGS THAT

WERE HAPPENING IN MY LIFE

WERE -- IT WAS ALMOST LIKE

I WAS BEING PUSHED, OR

ALMOST LIKE SOMEBODY

BULLYING YOU TO END

SOMETHING.

AND HE SAID, DON'T DO THAT

BECAUSE I THINK YOUR WIFE

WANTS A DIVORCE.

IF SHE WANTS A DIVORCE,

LET HER DO IT.

DON'T YOU GO OUT AND FALL

INTO THIS MOTION OF JUST

GOING ALONG WITH WHATEVER

IS GOING ON.

SO I WAITED AND I WAITED,

AND EVENTUALLY SHE DID

COME AND SHE GAVE ME THE

PAPERS.

I THINK I WAS SO NAIVE.

I WAS SO NAIVE GOING INTO

MARRIAGE.

IF YOUR MARRIAGE IS

TOTALLY ABOUT SOMEONE

DOING A SPECIFIC THING,

YOU'RE IN A

PERFORMANCE-BASED

RELATIONSHIP, AND IT IS

NOT GOING TO WORK THE WAY

YOU THINK.

YOU'RE GOING TO GET YOUR

FEELINGS HURT.

BUT IF YOU COMMIT TO THE

COMMITMENT OF WE'RE EVER

GROWING AND EVER CHANGING,

BUT I'M COMMITTED TO

LOVING YOU AND GIVING MY

HEART TO YOU, AND I'M

GOING TO FAIL AT TIMES,

I'M GOING TO MAKE YOU

ANGRY, WE MAY HAVE TO

SPEND SOME TIME APART AND

THEN COME BACK TOGETHER --

WHEN I SAY APART, I DON'T

MEAN A SEPARATION, I MEAN

JUST A PHYSICAL SPACE --

TO GATHER OURSELVES AND

SEEK GOD AND COME BACK.

SEEK COUNSEL.

IT IS ONGOING, LIKE,

FOREVER.

YOU TRY TO LOOK FOR

SOMEBODY THAT YOU HAVE A

GREAT RELATIONSHIP WITH, A

FRIENDSHIP, A LOVE WITH

THAT WILL WALK THAT WHOLE

THING OUT WITH YOU.

Efrem: STILL, THERE

ARE NO REGRETS.

HIS MARRIAGE DID PRODUCE

YEARS OF HAPPINESS AND A

SON.

WHEN I DO IT AGAIN,

WHICH I'M SURE I WILL DO

IT AGAIN BECAUSE I DO

BELIEVE IN MARRIAGE, THE

INSTITUTION OF MARRIAGE,

100%, I WILL LEAVE OTHER

PEOPLE EXCEPT THOSE THAT

ARE TRULY MINISTERING AND

FEEDING INTO THE SUCCESS

OF MY MARRIAGE.

THANK YOU ALL FOR

COMING OUT.

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE LOVE YOU.

WE LOVE YOU.

GOOD NIGHT.

Efrem: STILL AHEAD ON

"STUDIO 5," ONE FOOTBALL

STAR TAKES THE GRID IRON

TO THE GAME, AND OTHER

LEAVES IT FOR THE

RECORDING STUDIO.

SEE HOW BOTH ARE ANSWERING

A HIGHER CALL.

Efrem: MUSIC MOVES ME

AS I WORK ON THIS SHOW.

AND THE ARTIST I WOULD

LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOU NOW

HAS A TOUCHING STORY.

HIS RELEASE DEBUTED IN

2005, BUT WHAT IS MORE

COMPELLING IS HOW THE

FOOTBALL ARTIST BECAME A

RECORDING ARTIST.

THAT'S WHAT IS PLAYING IN

MY YEAR.

FOOTBALL IS IN TRINITY

DAWSEN'S BLOOD.

YOU CAN SEE IT IN HIS FOUR

YEARS AS A STARTING

RUNNING BACK FOR THE

UNIVERSITY OF TOLEDO.

MY GRANDFATHER WAS A

FOOTBALL ARE PLAYER.

HE WAS A LIN LINEBACKER.

Efrem: STILL, HE HAD

DREAMS OF PLAYING IN THE

NFL, AND DESPITE A HIP

INJURY, EVERYONE THOUGHT

HE WOULD BE DRAFTED.

IT NEVER HAPPENED.

ALL OF MY ROOMMATES ARE

STILL PLAYING IN THE

LEAGUE.

I HAVE A FRIEND, LANCE

MOORE, WHO PLAYED FOR THE

SAINTS FOR A VERY LONG

TIME.

HE IS WITH THE LIONS NOW.

ANOTHER BUDDY OF MINE,

ANDREW HAWKINS, WAS A

ROOMMATE OF MINE AND HE

PLAYS WIDE RECEIVER FOR

THE CLEVELAND BROWNS.

INITIALLY, IT WAS A

CHALLENGE TO SEE EVERYBODY

ELSE ACHIEVE THAT DREAM,

BUT WE CELEBRATE EACH

OTHER IN EVERYTHING GOD

BRINGS US TO.

Efrem: TRUSTING GOD,

HE WALKED AWAY FROM THE

GAME FOR A BUSINESS CAREER

AND LIFE AS A HUSBAND.

BUT DISAPPOINTMENT SOON

RETURNED.

WHEN ATTEMPTS TO START A

FAMILY FAILED.

I REMEMBER WHEN WE GOT

THE BAD NEWS FROM THE

DOCTOR.

I WAS SUPPOSED TO SING

THAT WEEK -- I GUESS WE

HAD SOME SORT OF EVENT AT

CHURCH.

FOR SOME REASON I

COULDN'T -- I WANTED TO

CALL AND SAY, HEY, I CAN'T

DO THIS.

BUT THE LORD WOULDN'T

RELEASE ME.

SO I THOUGHT, GOD, I'M NOT

EVEN A SINGER.

WHY DO YOU WANT ME TO

SACRIFICE THIS.

SO I COMPLIED, AND I WENT

AND SANG "GREAT IS THY

FAITHFULNESS."

YEAH.

AND SO THE SECOND ONE,

OCTOBER 27th, 2014, WE

HAD ANOTHER -- EXCUSE ME,

2013 -- WE HAD ANOTHER

MISCARRIAGE.

AND I WAS ACTUALLY

SINGING.

I WAS ACTUALLY SINGING AT

THE WORTHAM CENTER

DOWNTOWN WHEN THAT

HAPPENED.

AND I WAS WONDERING, WHY

AM I HERE?

AND WHY ARE YOU REQUIRING

THIS OF ME?

BUT IT WASN'T UNTIL I

STOPPED ASKING WHY AND

STARTED JUST FOCUSING ON

WHO HE WAS AND SEEKING HIM

FIRST, LIKE I SAID.

MATTHEW 6: 33 "AND ALL

THESE THINGS WILL BE ADDED

UNTO YOU."

IT WASN'T UNTIL I BEGAN TO

SEEK HIM THAT IT BECAME

CLEAR WHAT HE WAS CALLING

ME TO DO.

* MY BACK WAS AGAINST THE

WALL *

Efrem: THE CALL WAS

TO MUSIC, SOMETHING

TRINITY ONLY DID AS A

HOBBY IN CHURCH.

WHENEVER I WENT THROUGH

THOSE TRIALS OR ISSUES OF

UNCERTAINTY, GOD WOULD

GIVE ME SONGS.

THAT WAS MY WAY OF

CONNECTING TO GOD.

THAT WAS MY WAY OF

PROCESSING THROUGH THOSE

SITUATIONS.

AND ULTIMATELY THEY HELPED

ME THROUGH.

Efrem: THOSE SONGS

TURNED THE COLLEGE

FOOTBALL STAR INTO A

SUCCESSFUL RECORDING

ARTIST, WITH THE RELEASE

OF HIS FIRST C.D. TITLED

"WITH ALL OF I AM."

*

Efrem: AND WHEN HE IS

NOT SINGING IN MUSIC

VIDEOS OR ON THE WORSHIP

STAGE THESE DAYS...

*

Efrem: ...HE IS

SINGING TO HIS NEWBORN

SON, ANOTHER ANSWERED

PRAYER FOR HE AND HIS

WIFE.

HE SAYS HIS YOUNG FAMILY

IS A LIVING REMINDER FOR

OTHERS IN PURSUIT OF GOD'S

PROMISE AND PURPOSE FOR

THEIR LIVES.

WHATEVER GOD HAS CALLED

YOU TO DO, HE IS FAITHFUL

TO EQUIP YOU WITH WHAT YOU

NEED TO DO IT.

Efrem: WE SPOKE WITH

ANOTHER FOOTBALL STAR WHO

GOD CALLED AWAY FROM THE

GRID IRON.

JASON BROWN LEFT HIS

CAREER AS THE HIGHEST-PAID

CENTER IN NFL HISTORY TO

START A FARM.

BECOMING A FARMER WASN'T

EXACTLY JASON BROWN'S

FIRST CAREER CHOICE.

IN FACT, IT WASN'T TOO

LONG AGO HE WAS LIVING HIS

DREAM OF PLAYING FOOTBALL

IN THE NFL.

JASON WAS DRAFTED IN THE

FOURTH ROUND BY THE

BALTIMORE RAVENS IN 2005.

HE WORKED LONG AND HARD TO

BECOME ONE OF THE BEST

CENTERS IN THE GAME.

FOR HIM --

IT IS ALL ABOUT WINNING

A CHAMPIONSHIP.

IT IS ALL ABOUT RECEIVING

THAT GLORY, THE ATTENTION

TO GET TO A SUPER.

Efrem: THE HARD WORK

PAID OFF, AND IN 2009,

JASON BECAME THE HIGHEST

PAID PLAYER IN NFL

HISTORY, WHEN HE SIGNED A

CONTRACT WORTH MORE THAN

$37 MILLION WITH THE ST.

LOUIS RAMS.

IT WAS A DREAM COME TRUE.

BUT WHILE JASON WAS BUSY

CHASING HIS DREAM, HE

DIDN'T KNOW THE EFFECT IT

HAD ON HIS MARRIAGE AND

HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

THE FINANCIAL SECURITY

WE HAD AT THAT TIME, IT IS

SOMETHING THAT WOULD BE

DESIRED BY PRETTY MUCH

ANYONE.

BUT YET SPIRITUALLY, WE

WERE DYING INSIDE.

Efrem: THEN, WITH

ONLY TWO GAMES LEFT IN HIS

THIRD SEASON WITH THE

RAMS, JASON WALKED INTO A

MEETING THAT CHANGED

EVERYTHING.

MY COACH CALLED ME INTO

HIS OFFICE AND SAID, YOU

KNOW WHAT?

WE'RE GOING TO BENCH YOU.

AND, WOW, IT WAS SUCH A

HUMBLING SITUATION, WHERE

IT COMPLETELY BLINDSIDED

ME.

Efrem: HE READ THE

BIBLE, FASTED, AND PRAYED,

LOOKING TO GOD FOR

ANSWERS.

WHAT THE HOLY SPIRIT

WAS SPEAKING TO ME, YOU

KNOW WHAT, JASON?

YOU HAVE REALLY GOT IT ALL

WRONG.

REALLY FAITH AND FAMILY IS

SUPPOSED TO BE THE

FOUNDATION OF YOUR LIFE.

Efrem: FOR THE FIRST

TIME IN HIS LIFE, JASON

QUESTIONED WHETHER HIS

FUTURE WAS REALLY ON THE

FOOTBALL FIELD.

FOR ME, IF I WERE TO

CHOOSE TO CONTINUE TO PLAY

FOOTBALL, IT WOULD HAVE TO

BE WITHIN GOD'S PLAN, AND

FOR THERE TO BE A LIFE OF

PURPOSE.

BECAUSE FROM THAT POINT

FORWARD, EVERY DECISION

THAT I MADE WAS GOING TO

INVOLVE GOD.

Efrem: IN A MEETING

WITH THE CAROLINA

PANTHERS, JASON SAID GOD

MADE THAT DECISION CLEAR.

THEY MADE HIM AN OFFER

THAT WAS HARD TO REFUSE,

BUT HE DID AND WALKED AWAY

FROM THE GAME HE LOVED.

MY PARENTS, THEY WERE

THE ONES WHO PICKED ME UP

FROM THE CAROLINA

PANTHERS' FACILITY, AND

THEY LOOKED AT ME ALL

BRIGHT-EYED AND SAID, SO

ARE YOU GOING TO BE A

PANTHER?

I SAID NO, MOM, NO, DAD,

I'M NOT GOING TO BE A

PANTHER.

I SAID YOU'LL JUST HAVE TO

TRUST ME ON THIS ONE

BECAUSE I'M TRUSTING GOD.

THEN COMES, WELL, WHAT ARE

YOU GOING TO DO, JASON?

AND TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH,

GOD HADN'T REVEALED THAT

TO ME AND MY WIFE YET.

I JUST KNEW IT WASN'T

GOING TO BE FOOTBALL ANY

LONGER.

Efrem: GOD HAS CALLED

JASON TO A DIFFERENT

FIELD.

GOD TOLD ME, I WANT YOU

TO BE A FARMER.

I WANT YOU TO FEED MY

PEOPLE.

TRULY FEEDING GOD'S

PEOPLE.

AND THAT'S THE PUREST WAY

OF SHARING CHRIST'S LOVE.

Efrem: JASON STARTED

DOING RESEARCH AND GETTING

ADVICE FROM LOCAL FARMERS.

HE HAD HIS FIRST HARVEST.

IT WAS FAR BEYOND HIS

EXPECTATIONS.

THE FARM PROVIDED MORE

THAN 100,000 POUNDS OF

FOOD THAT HE THEN PROVIDED

TO FOOD BANKS AND OTHER

HUNGER RELIEF EFFORTS.

IT WAS SIMPLY THE SEED

OF FAITH.

YOU KNOW, THE SMALL SEED

OF ME BEING OBEDIENT AND

ACTUALLY STARTING THE

PROCESS.

AND THEN GOD DID

EVERYTHING ELSE.

I HAVE NO FEARS OF WHAT

THIS NEXT YEAR WILL BRING.

I HAVE NO FEARS AS FAR AS

WHAT THE REST OF MY LIFE

WILL BRING.

AS LONG AS I'M DOING MY

PART, HE IS GOING TO DO

THE REST.

Efrem: STILL AHEAD ON

"STUDIO 5"...

*

Efrem: HEAR WHY MORE

THAN 10 MILLION PEOPLE

HAVE CAUSE TO ENJOY THE

SOUNDS OF THESE IN-STUDIO

GUESTS.

Efrem: WE'RE KEEPING

THE MUSIC GOING FOR THE

NEXT EDITION OF "STUDIO

5."

THE WORD RESOUND MEANS TO

PROCLAIM THE GOSPEL, TO

SHOUT THE GOOD NEWS.

IT IS ALSO THE NAME OF THE

MUSIC GROUP PERFORMING FOR

US NEXT WEEK IN "STUDIO

5."

* I TRY TO GET IT RIGHT

EVERY DAY *

Efrem: THAT'S A SNEAK

PEEK OF THE GROUP DEBUTING

THEIR NEW SINGLE, "KEEP ON

LOVING," AND THEY'RE

SHARING HOW A SHOUT OUT

FROM ARIANA GRANDE GOT

THEM AN INTERVIEW.

TODAY I'M GIVING A FINAL

WORD TO SARAH, A YOUNG

WOMAN WITH A SIMPLE

MESSAGE: STAY CONNECTED.

TAKE A LOOK.

SO PICTURE THIS: GOD IS

THE TAP, AND WE ARE THE

CHANNEL, LIKE A GUARDING

HOST.

THE WORLD IS THE GUARDIAN,

AND THE WATER IS LOVE.

NOW, HOW DOES THIS WORK?

AS LONG AS WE STAY

CONNECTED TO THE SOURCE,

LOVE FLOWS THROUGH US

EASILY.

SO DO YOU WANT TO BE AN

INSTRUMENT FOR GOD TO USE

TO SPREAD HIS LOVE IN THE

WORLD?

THEN JUST STAY CONNECTED.

Efrem: AMEN.

STAY CONNECTED.

THAT IS GOING TO DO IT FOR

TODAY IN "STUDIO 5."

UNTIL THEN, REACH OUT AND

TOUCH MY ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

AND MAKE SURE YOU JOIN US

RIGHT HERE NEXT WEEK.
