IF YOU LET THE ADVERSITY CRUMBLE

YOU, YOU'LL LAY THERE AND WALLOW

IN WHAT HAPPENED.

EMMIT SMITH IS A FOOTBALL

LEGEND, FORMER DALLAS COWBOY AND

HALL OF FAMER.

HIS WIFE HAS BEEN BY HIS SIDE 17

YEARS.

SHE FELT LIKE SHE WAS WEARING A

MASK AFRAID TO BE WHO SHE WAS.

SHE IS TALKING ABOUT TAKING OFF

THE MASK AND WALKING IN HER

PURPOSE.

PAT SMITH SPEAKER, TELEVISION

HOST AND WIFE OF FORMER DALLAS

COWBOY, EMMIT SMITH.

PAT'S JOURNEY HAS NOT BEEN EASY.

SUFFERED THROUGH THE DEATH OF

HER MOTHER FOLLOWED BY A

DIFFICULT DIVORCE FROM MARTIN

LAWRENCE.

IN HER NEW BOOK "SECOND CHANCES"

HOW GOD CHANGED HER LIFE AND HE

CAN DO THE SAME FOR OTHERS.

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE THE

BOOK?

I WISH SOMEBODY HAD SAT DOWN

AND TOLD ME, PAT, LIFE IS GOING

TO BE HARD.

YOU ARE GOING TO LOSE YOUR MOM,

GO THROUGH DIVORCE, SET BACKS,

DISAPPOINTMENTS, YOU'LL FEEL

SHAME AND EMBARRASSMENT.

I PROMISE YOU GOD IS GOING TO

USE IT FOR HIS GLORY.

DID YOU EVER QUESTION GOD

AFTER LOSING YOUR MOTHER?

I DON'T REMEMBER QUESTIONING

HIM.

I REMEMBER FEELING ALMOST LIKE

ABANDONED, I CAN REMEMBER AT 17

THINKING MY MOM WAS GOING TO

DIE.

IN THE 80S WHEN YOU GOT A BREAST

CANCER DIAGNOSIS, SHE WON'T BE

THERE FOR MY FIRST WEDDING OR

WHEN I HAVE A CHILD.

SHE IS NOT GOING TO BE THERE

THROUGH MY JOURNEY.

I REMEMBER THINKING OF WHAT I

WOULD BE LOSING.

HER DREAM WAS TO SEE ME

GRADUATE, SHE DID.

FROM COLLEGE.

A YEAR AFTER THAT SHE LOST HER

FIGHT.

I WAS 22 YEARS OLD.

IT WAS LIKE I LOST WHO I WAS, I

LOST A SENSE OF DIRECTION, THERE

WAS A HUGE VOID IN MY LIFE I

COULDN'T FIGURE OUT WHAT IT WAS.

FOR WHATEVER REASON DIDN'T WANT

TO FEEL LIKE A STEPCHILD OR

ABANDONED.

I FELT EMBARRASSED NOT HAVING MY

MOTHER.

I IMMEDIATELY PUT ON A MASK THAT

I AM OKAY.

I CAN HANDLE THIS.

I AM GOING TO KEEP MOVING.

IN THE BOOK, YOU TALK ABOUT

FORGIVENESS BEING PERPETUAL.

WHAT DID YOU MEAN?

WHEN EMMIT AND I WERE DATING,

WE HAD A DIFFICULT SITUATION.

HE WAS IN DALLAS, I WAS IN L.A.

HE RECONNECTED WITH AN

EXGIRLFRIEND.

SHE CONCEIVE ADD CHILD.

THAT WAS ONE OF THE MOST

DIFFICULT THINGS I HAD TO

OVERCOME WITH FORGIVENESS.

I HAD THIS PERFECT MAN COMING TO

RESCUE ME, RIGHT?

THERE WAS NO PERFECT MAN OR

WOMAN.

GOD IS THE ONLY PERFECT

ANYTHING, RIGHT?

GOD HAD TO TEACH ME THAT.

I AM GOING I AM A LOVER OF

PEOPLE.

HOW CAN I BE IN A RELATIONSHIP

WITH SOMEONE I DON'T KNOW IF I

FORGIVE WHO HAS HURT ME IN A

PLACE SO DEEP.

HOW AM I GOING TO LOVE THIS

CHILD?

I REMEMBER GOING TO GOD SAYING

PLEASE IF THIS IS FOR US, I NEED

YOU.

IF I AM MEANT TO LET IT GO, HELP

ME TO LET IT GO.

GOD, OF COURSE DID NOT LET IT

GO.

HE SUPPORTED US WITH ANGELS THAT

HELPED US AND UNDERGURDED US

THROUGH THIS PROCESS.

I BELIEVE FORGIVENESS IS A

CHOICE.

AFTER THAT IT TAKES TIME.

PAT'S BOOK IS CALLED "SECOND

CHANC

CHANCES."

BISHOP JAKES IS MAKING

ENTERTAINMENT NEWS OF HIS OWN.

HE HAS HIS OWN NEW TALK SHOW

COMING TO TELEVISION IN THE FALL

CALLED TD JAKE'S SHOW.

WE CAUGHT UP WITH HIS VICE

PRESIDENT OF ENTERTAINMENT.

HE GAVE "STUDIO 5" A SNEAK PEEK

OF WHAT WE CAN EXPECT WHEN THE

SHOW DEBUTS.

IT IS ABOUT HIM BEING WHO HE

IS.

CONFLICT RESOLUTION IS A STRONG

SUIT.

WE ARE DOING MORE OF THAT AND

DOING IT IN A TALK SHOW FORMAT.

I KIND OF SAY IT IS A MIXTURE OF

WHEN OPRAH MEETS DR. PHIL.

FOX NETWORK DEBUTING A NEW

TALK SHOW THIS SUMMER AND

FEATURES A PANEL OF PASTORS FROM

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

"STUDIO 5" IS COMING TO YOU FROM

DALLAS, TEXAS.

THIS IS THE HOMETOWN OF HIP HOP

ARTIST LECRAE.

HE SIGNED A NEW DEAL WITH CLUM

COLUMBINE BEE YA RECORDS.

LET'S LOOK AT THAT FOCUS FOR

THIS WEEK'S INTERVIEW.

*

UNASHAMED IS A THEME FOR HIP HOP

ARTIST LECRAE AND 116.

COMES FROM ROMANS, 116: FOR I

AM NOT ASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL.

IT IS THE POWER OF GOD UNTO

SALVATION TO EVERYONE WHO

BELIEVES.

LECRAE'S BOLD UNASHAMED MUSIC

WITH HIS LIFE, "NEW YORK TIMES"

BEST SELLING BOOK "UNASHAMED."

BEFOREHAND IT WAS, I DON'T

KNOW MUCH.

THIS IS WHAT I KNOW.

THIS IS WHAT I HAVE, LITTLE

BROTHER SCREAMING FROM THE ROOF

TOPS.

I ONLY KNOW ONE THING.

NOW IT IS BIG BROTHER, UNCLE

SAYING HAVE A SEAT.

LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THINGS I

HAVE SEEN AND LEARNED.

IN YOUR MUSIC, YOU SHARE THE

PAIN OF BEING MOLESTED AND

TAKING A GIRLFRIEND TO HAVE AN

ABORTION, WHY SHARE THAT?

I THINK LEADERS LEAD IN

VULNERABILITY.

PEOPLE CAN FIND HEALING.

IT IS SAID HURT PEOPLE HEAL

PEOPLE HEALED PEOPLE HELP HEAL

PEOPLE.

TO BE ABLE TO GO THERE AND PULL

THOSE THINGS OUT OF THEIR CLOSET

AND DEAL WITH THEM.

MAYBE THEY ARE NOT AS BAD.

MAYBE THEY ARE WORSE.

YES, I AM GOING TO TALK ABOUT

IT.

I AM FINE.

YES, IT IS PAIN.

.

BUT I HAVE ENDURING HOPE.

EVEN THOUGH I KNOW I AM NOT

PERFECT AND I HAVE MY DAYS WHERE

SOMEBODY IS LIKE I HATE HIM.

I WOULD HOPE I WOULD HAVE A

LEGACY THAT DEMONSTRATES THAT, I

DEMONSTRATED A CHARACTER

CONSISTENT WITH WHAT CALLS ME TO

AT LEAST THAT I DIE TRYING.

[LAUGHTER].

WE THOUGHT PEOPLE WOULD LIKE IT

WILDEST DREAMS DID WE KNOW IT

MOVIE OVER 60 MILLION.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY THAT DID

WHICH IS GREAT BECAUSE YOU HAVE

HOLLYWOOD TALKING ABOUT IT GOD

IT IS A FAITH VERSION OF

NETFLIX.

YOU DROPPED OUT OF BIBLE

SCHOOL TO GO TO HOLLYWOOD,

WHEN YOU PUT IT LIKE THAT IT

SOUNDS BAD.

[LAUGHTER].

MY FATHER IS A PASTOR HE SAID

YOU HAVE TO GO ONE YEAR.

I WENT ONE YEAR TO HONOR MY

FATHER.

PARENTS, I WANT TO LEAVE BIBLE

SCHOOL AND GO TO HOLLYWOOD TO BE

AN ACTOR.

WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?

IT IS A GOD GIVEN THING.

I SAW ONE MOVIE.

I GREW UP AS A MENNEN IET, THEY

MAKE THE MORMONS LOOK LIKE A

PACK OF HELLS ANGELS.

I REMEMBER SITTING IN A WHEAT

FIELD ON A TRACTOR.

FOR WHATEVER REASON, I HAD THIS

DESIRE TO GO AND IMPACT CULTURE

THROUGH THE ENTERTAINMENT

INDUSTRY.

SO I MOVED TO LOS ANGELES, 19

YEARS OLD.

IF YOU HAVE A DREAM IN YOUR

HEART, GIVE IT TO GOD AND FOLLOW

IT.

WITTEN OPENING UP ABOUT HIS

BIGGEST OPPONENT OFF THE

FOOTBALL FIELD.

SNAPSHOTS OF AT&T STADIUM, HOME

TO AMERICA'S TEAM, THE DALLAS

COWBOYS.

ALL PRO TIGHT END JASON WITTEN

OPENING UP TO HIS BIGGEST BATTLE

OFF THE FIELD, DOMESTIC ABUSE.

IT IS TODA TODAY'S FACE ON THE

FIELD.

I BELIEVE IN BECOMING GREAT.

GREATNESS IS A CHARACTERISTIC

NOT EASY.

I CAN SHOW IT EVERYDAY.

THROUGH SUCCESS AND ADVERSITY.

GOD BLESSED ME WITH THAT BEING

MENTALLY TOUGH AND CONTROL YOUR

THOUGHTS.

I BELIEVE IN THAT.

SEE THROUGH THE DARK DAYS.

IMPACTED MY CHILDHOOD A LOT.

MY MOM WAS A STRONG WOMAN TO

HANDLE WHAT SHE WENT THROUGH.

IT IS TOUGH.

MY DAD WAS SOMEBODY WE LOVED.

ON A HANDFUL OF DAYS IT WAS YOUR

WORST NIGHTMARE.

PAIN WAS DEEP, IT WAS REAL.

IT WAS SOMETHING WE FELT.

SEEING OTHERS GO THROUGH PAIN

SUCH AS YOUR MOM.

I CAN REMEMBER BEING IN THE

BEDROOM THINKING WHEN IS THIS

GOING TO END?

THEY WERE JUST A GREAT EXAMPLE

IN OUR LIVES.

WHAT CHARACTERISTICS YOU WANT TO

HAVE.

MORE THEN THAT, THEY TOOK US TO

CHURCH AND LED US THROUGH A

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST.

THAT IS WHAT CHANGED OUR LIVES.

MY SUPPORT IN STOPPING DOMESTIC

VIOLENCE IS UNWAVERING.

AS ATHLETES I BELIEVE BIG STRONG

PHYSICAL MEN WITH NATIONAL

SPOTLIGHT, THOS OUR PLATFORM TO

SPEAK OUT.

I TRY TO PROVIDE HOPE.

YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.

YOU ARE SMART.

PROVIDE AVENUES FOR THESE MOMS

TO GET BACK ON THEIR FEET AND IT

IS GOING TO BE OKAY.

JESUS CHRIST IS YOUR SAVIOR.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE FAITH GOD'S

GRACE IS AMAZING.

IF I TALK ABOUT MY LIFE AND

OVERCOMING THE OBSTACLES, IT WAS

TRULY FINDING FORGIVENESS.

ALLOWS YOU TO GROW.

IF I DIDN'T HAVE THAT, I DON'T

THINK I WOULD HAVE HAD THE

CAREER I HAVE OR FAMILY.

DIDN'T COME EASY.

YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH IT.

WHEN YOU CONSTANTLY GO TO YOUR

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS YOU

UNDERSTAND HE IS THE WAY.

IN MY LIFE, REDEMPTION PART IS

ABLE TO SAY WE WENT THROUGH IT,

WE FORGIVE AND LOOK AT OUR

FAMILY AND LIVES AND THE PEOPLE

WE ARE REACHING.

ALWAYS BETTER TO GIVE AND HAVE

AN UNDERSTANDING THAT IS WHAT

GREATNESS IS ALL ABOUT.
