*

David: AND WELCOME,

EVERYBODY, TO ANOTHER

EDITION OF "THE BRODY

FILE."

IT IS DECEMBER, AND THAT

MEANS, YOU KNOW WHAT,

JANUARY IS AFTER DECEMBER.

DID YOU KNOW THAT?

JANUARY 20th, TO BE

EXACT, IS WHEN DONALD

TRUMP AND THE FOLKS MOVE

IN.

BARACK OBAMA AND THOSE

FOLKS MOVE OUT.

AND FOR MORE ON THE TRUMP

TRANSITION PROCESS, LET'S

GET TO THE WHITE HOUSE.

JENNIFER WISHON JOINING

US.

JENNY AND THE "B" BLOCK

NOW JOINING US IN THE "A"

BLOCK, WHICH, JENNIFER, IF

YOU KNOW, IS A

PROMOTION -- IT IS A

PROMOTION.

Jennifer: DO I GET A

RAISE?

David: I GUESS WE'LL

DISCUSS THAT LATER BECAUSE

I HAVEN'T SEEN A CHECK

RECENTLY.

LET ME ASK YOU THIS: THE

TRUMP TRANSITION TIMELINE,

HOW IS IT GOING SO FAR?

Jennifer: WE'RE FOUR

WEEKS INTO THIS THING,

DAVID.

IT HAS BEEN FOUR WEEKS

SINCE DONALD TRUMP WAS

ELECTED AS THE NEXT

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

STATES.

HE HAS PICKED 11 MEMBERS

OF HIS CABINET.

AND IN TRUE TRUMP-WINNING

FORM, HIS TEAM LIKES TO

REMIND REPORTERS THAT THIS

IS REALLY THE FASTEST PACE

THAT A PRESIDENT-ELECT HAS

PICKED A CABINET IN SOME

40 YEARS.

IF YOU WANT TO COMPARE

THAT TO WHERE PRESIDENT

OBAMA WAS AT THIS POINT IN

HIS TRANSITION, I THINK

THIS WEEK IS WHEN HE HAD

PICKED HIS FIRST CABINET

SECRETARY, A VERY

IMPORTANT SECRETARY AT

THAT TIME IN OUR HISTORY,

HIS TREASURY SECRETARY TIM

GEITHNER.

SO PRESIDENT-ELECT IS

MOVING AT RECORD SPEED.

David: IT HAS BEEN

REALLY INTERESTING TO SEE

THERE ARE QUITE A FEW

SOCIAL CONVERSATION IN

THIS CABINET.

I'M WONDERING WHAT YOUR

SENSE IS OF THE MAKEUP SO

FAR.

I WOULD THINK IT HAS TO

PLEASE SOCIAL

CONSERVATIVES OUT THERE?

Jennifer: OH, YES.

WE KNOW THAT 81% OF

EVANGELICALS WENT TO THE

POLLS AND VOTED FOR DONALD

TRUMP.

AND IT SEEMS LIKE HE IS

NOT FORGETTING THAT.

A VAST MAJORITY OF HIS

CABINET EITHER HAS A

CHRISTIAN BACKGROUND OR IS

A PRACTICING CHRISTIAN.

YOU HAVE SEVERAL WOMEN.

YOU HAVE TWO RETIRED

GENERALS.

AND THERE ARE STILL MORE

PICKS TO GO.

AND, YOU KNOW, IT IS GOING

TO BE INTERESTING TO WATCH

EVEN SOMEONE LIKE DR. BEN

CARSON, WHO IS THE

SECRETARY OF HOUSING AND

URBAN DEVELOPMENT.

YOU MADE THE POINT THAT

EVERYONE THOUGHT HE WOULD

BE MAYBE THE SECRETARY OF

HEALTH OR MAYBE EDUCATION,

BUT I'M REALLY INTERESTED

TO WATCH HIM IN THIS ROLE.

A BLACK CONSERVATIVE WHO

GREW UP IN POVERTY, AND

WHO REALLY LIFTED HIMSELF

OUT OF THAT IN A

REMARKABLE WAY.

IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO

SEE HOW HIS PERSONAL

PASSIONS REALLY LEAD HIM

IN THIS NEW ROLE.

David: AND IT IS

ALSO INTERESTING BECAUSE

HE IS NOT A BIG FAN OF

GOVERNMENT HANDOUTS, IF

YOU WILLMENT AND HUDD DOES

QUITE A BIT OF THOSE.

> I WONDER ABOUT TRUMP'S

FIRST 100 DAYS.

MY GUESS IS WE'LL HEAR A

LOT ABOUT HOW HE IS DOING

THINGS UNBELIEVABLY, AND

HE IS JUST THE BEST, IN

140 CHARACTERS OR LESS.

BUT WHAT IS THE AGENDA

LOOKING LIKE FOR THOSE 100

DAYS?

Jennifer: WE KNOW HE

WANTS TO GET OUT OF THE

TRANS PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP,

AND HE WANTS TO CUT

REGULATIONS ON BUSINESSES,

AND GET RID OF SOME

ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATIONS,

AND HE IS GOING TO BE

NOMINATING HIS FIRST PICK

TO THE SUPREME COURT.

BUT YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER,

DAVID, THAT WHEN CONGRESS

COMES BACK TO WASHINGTON,

THE NEW CONGRESS BEGINS IN

JANUARY, THEY'RE GOING TO

BE BOGGED DOWN VERY EARLY

ON WITH CONFIRMING TRUMP'S

CABINET PICKS, CONFIRMING

HIS FIRST SUPREME COURT

PICK.

SO I'M HEARING FROM SOME

FOLKS ON THE HILL THAT IT

REALLY MAY BE, YOU KNOW,

MARCH, EVEN MAY, BEFORE

THEY GET INTO THE REAL

SUBSTANTIVE ISSUES THAT

TRUMP WANTS TO TACKLE.

AND I FORGOT TO MENTION

IMMIGRATION REFORM.

SO THEY HAVE SOME HEAVY

LIFTING TO DO.

IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO

SEE HOW THIS RELATIONSHIP

PLAYS OUT.

I MEAN, YOU KNOW, IN THE

BUSINESS WORLD IT IS EASY

TO WALK IN THE BOARD ROOM

AND KIND OF LAY THE LAW

DOWN.

THAT'S NOT NECESSARILY HOW

IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN.

THESE THINGS TAKE TIME.

ESPECIALLY WITH SOME OF

THE REGULATIONS THAT TRUMP

WANTS TO ROLL BACK OR

REVERSE THAT OBAMA PUT IN

PLACE -- SOME OF THESE MAY

FACE COURT ACTION BECAUSE

YOU HAVE TWO OPPOSING

BUREAUCRATIC OPINIONS

HERE, IF YOU WILL.

SO, YOU KNOW, IT LOOKS

LIKE CONGRESS IS ON BOARD

WITH A LOT OF THE

PRESIDENT-ELECT'S FIRST

PRIORITIES.

SO THAT'S A GOOD THING FOR

HIM.

BUT IT'S GOING TO TAKE A

LITTLE TIME.

David: JENNIFER

WISHON AT THE WHITE HOUSE.

TRUMP IS NOT PLAYING

AROUND, AND, BY THE WAY,

I'M SURE NEITHER ARE YOU.

YOU AIN'T PLAYING THERE.

Jennifer: I AIN'T

PLAYING.

David: THANKS,

JENNIFER.

I APPRECIATE IT.

> WE TALKED ABOUT BEN

CARSON.

THE GOOD DOCTOR COULD HAVE

RUN HEALTH AND HUMAN@<@<

SERVICES, HE COULD HAVE

RUN EDUCATION, BUT,

INSTEAD, IT IS GOING TO BE

H.U.D.

WE HAD A CHANCE TO SPEAK

WITH HIM A FEW TIMES ON

THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL, BUT WE

ACTUALLY SPOKE TO HIM FOR

THE FIRST TIME IN HIS

HOME, HIM AND HIS WIFE,

CANDY, ABOUT THE EDUCATION

ISSUES SPECIFICALLY.

BECAUSE THEY GRE HE GREW UP IN LOW

INCOME HOUSING, AND THEY

DO A LOT OF GREAT WORK IN

THE INNER CITIES.

HAVE A LOOK.

HELPING THE KIDS

UNDERSTAND THAT THE PERSON

THAT HAS THE MOST TO DO

WITH WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU

IS YOU.

AND THEY GET SO EXCITED

ABOUT THE BOOKS AND THE

LEARNING.

WE START IN THE FOURTH

GRADE BEFORE KIDS HAVE

TAKEN THAT IRREVOCABLE

PATH DOWN THE WRONG WAY.

IF WE CAN GET KIDS TO

START THINKING ABOUT THEIR

FUTURE EARLY ON, THERE IS

LESS CHANCE OF THEM

DROPPING OUT.

THE DROPOUT RATE

NATIONALLY IS BETWEEN 20%

AND 30% OF THOSE WHO ENTER

HIGH SCHOOL.

AND 80% OF THEM ARE

ILLITERATE AND THEY CAN'T

FILL OUT A JOB

APPLICATION.

AND THEY BECOME A DRAIN ON

SOCIETY.

THAT'S WHY WE TRIED TO SET

UP THESE ROLE MODELS.

THE KEY THING IS THAT

WE REALIZE THAT EDUCATION

IS THE GREAT DIVIDE IN

THIS COUNTRY.

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT

ELSE IS GOING ON IN YOUR

LIFE.

IF YOU GET A GOOD

EDUCATION, YOU HAVE AN

EXCELLENT OF BEING ABLE TO

CONTROL THE EVENTS IN YOUR

LIFE AND NOT BEING A

VICTIM.

David: SOME

INTERESTING INSIGHT FROM

BEN CARSON AND HIS WIFE,

CANDY.

SPEAKING OF CABINET

SECRETARSECRETARIES, HOW ABOUT

JAMES MATTIS.

HE MEANS BUSINESS.

I HAD A CHANCE TO MODERATE

A PANEL WITH HIM AT THE

UNITED STATES GLOBAL

LEADERSHIP COALITION BACK

IN 2014 DOWN IN VIRGINIA.

HE IS NOT AS FIRE AND

BRIMSTONE AS EVERYBODY

THINKS.

HE ACTUALLY TALKS A LOT

ABOUT DEVELOPMENT AND

DIPLOMACY AND WORKING WITH

ALLIES.

HAVE A LOOK AT SOME OF OUR

CONVERSATION.

David: YOU HAVE BEEN

IN SOME DIFFICULT SPOTS

AROUND THE COUNTRY --

AROUND THE WORLD,

OBVIOUSLY -- IRAQ AND

AFGHANISTAN.

AND ON AND ON.

YOU SAID THIS ONE TIME AT

A SENATE HEARING,

QUOTE,"IF YOU DON'T FUND

THE STATE DEPARTMENT

FULLY, THEN I NEED TO BUY

MORE AMMUNITION."

AND I'M WONDERING WHAT YOU

MEAN BY THAT EXACTLY, AND

HOW THAT SHEDS SOME LIGHT

AND INTERNATIONAL

DEVELOPMENT.

MY POINT THAT DAY WAS

WE'RE ENGAGED IN AN

INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION

OF IDEAS, COMPETITION OF

VALUES.

AND WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO

ENGAGE IN TRADITIONAL

DIPLOMACY.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO

ENGAGE IN SOME SORT OF

COMMUNICATIONS THAT

COMPELLINGLY, THAT

PERSUASIVELY CONVEYS OUR

VALUES.

THEY GREW OUT OF THE

ENLIGHTENMENT, AND THEY

GOT VOICE FROM OUR

DECLARATION, BUT RIGHT NOW

THERE IS A COMPETITION

GOING ON.

THERE ARE MANIACS WHO

THOUGHT BY ATTACKING US ON

9/11 THEY COULD SCARE US.

SCARE US INTO SILENCE AND

RETREATING FROM THE WORLD.

WE HAVE PROVEN WE DON'T

SCARE.

BUT THE BOTTOM LINE IS

THAT'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH,

JUST TO PROVE WE DON'T

SCARE.

NOW WE HAVE TO ENGAGE.

THAT MEANS EDUCATION

PROGRAMS THAT BRINGS

STUDENTS TO OUR LAND.

THAT MEANS THE

COUNTER-PARTS TO

RADIO-FREE EUROPE AND

PLACES IN EUROPE, GOING

INTO PLACES WHERE HATRED

IS BEING ESPOUGED.

THE CHALLENGE WE FACE IS

THERE ARE ONLY TWO

ELEMENTS OF OUR GOVERNMENT

THAT ARE TRULY IN THE

EXECUTIVE BRANCH, TRULY

COMPOSED FOR COMPETITION.

ONE IS THE C.I.A., AND THE

OTHER IS THE MILITARY.

WE NEED FOREIGN POLICY,

FOREIGN AID, THE STATE

DEPARTMENT, EVERYONE

ORGANIZED FOR COMPETITION

IN THIS FREE COMPETITION

OF IDEAS.

I'M CONVINCED THAT OURS

HAVE STOOD THE TEST OF

TIME OVER HUNDREDS OF

YEARS.

I'M CONVINCED THERE ARE

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE,

HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS, WHO

WILL RESPOND TO THOSE

IDEAS.

BUT ABSENT THAT RESPONSE

IN A POSITIVE WAY, VACUUMS

AT LEAST IN THE AREA I WAS

WORKING WITH, THE MIDDLE

EAST, ARE NOT GENERALLY

FILLED BY GOOD PEOPLE.

WE'VE GOT TO STAY ENGAGED.

IF WE CREATE A VACUUM IN

THIS AREA, THEN WE SHOULD

NOT BE SURPRISED IN WHAT

COMES OUT IN JUST THAT

TIME OF HISTORY WHERE

THERE ARE SOME PRETTY

RRECALERANT PEOPLE OUT

THERE.

WE DON'T LOOK AT IT THAT

WAY, BUT WE HAVE TO

ENGAGE.

David: WHEN WE COME

BACK, WE'RE GOING TO TALK

ABOUT GENERAL GEORGE

PATTON.

WHY DOES TRUMP LOVE THIS

GUY SO MUCH?

BACK IN A MOMENT.

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO "THE

BRODY FILE."

LET'S TALK A LITTLE ABOUT

DONALD TRUMP AND JAMES

MATTIS, WHO IS GOING TO

RUN THE DEFENSE

DEPARTMENT, ASSUMING THAT

THE SENATE DOES CONFIRM

HIM, WHICH THEY WILL --

DON'T WORRY ABOUT THAT,

FOR SURE.

BUT, LOOK, HE TALKS ABOUT

JAMES MATTIS IN VERY

COLORFUL TERMS, ESPECIALLY

WHEN IT COMES TO

REFERENCING A FORMER

GENERAL, GENERAL GEORGE

PATTON.

HAVE A LOOK.

THEY SAY HE IS THE

CLOSEST THING TO GENERAL

GEORGE PATTON THAT WE

HAVE, AND IT'S ABOUT TIME.

IT'S ABOUT TIME.

[APPLAUSE]

David: THAT GOT US

THINKING HERE AT "THE

BRODY FILE," THAT WE

NOTICED THAT DONALD TRUMP

INVOKES GENERAL PATTON'S

NAME A LOT.

WE SAY, WHAT WAS GENERAL

PATTON ALL ABOUT.

THERE IS NO BETTER TUA WAY TO

DESCRIBE IT THAN WATCHING

THIS CLIP IN 1970, AND IT

IS GEORGE C.SCOTT, THE

ACTOR WHO PLAYS GEORGE

PATTON.

THIS WILL GIVE YOU A AN

INSIGHT ABOUT WHO HE WAS.

ALL THIS STUFF YOU

HEARD ABOUT AMERICA NOT

WANTING TO FIGHT, WANTING

TO STAY OUT OF THE WAR, IS

A LOT OF HORSE DUNG.

AMERICANS TRADITIONALLY

LOVE TO FIGHT.

ALL REAL AMERICANS LOVE

THE STING OF BATTLE.

WHEN YOU WERE KIDS, YOU

ALL ADMIRED THE CHAMPION

MODEL SHOOTER, THE FASTEST

RUNNER, THE BIG LEAGUE

BALBALLPLAYERS, THE TOUGHEST

BOXERS.

AMERICANS LOVE A WINNER.

AND WILL NOT TOLERATE A

LOSER.

AMERICANS PLAY TO WIN ALL

THE TIME.

I WOULDN'T GIVE A HOOT FOR

A MAN WHO LOST AND

LAUGHED.

THAT'S WHY AMERICANS HAVE

NEVER LOST AND WILL NEVER

LOSE A WAR.

BECAUSE THE VERY THOUGHT

OF LOSING IS HATEFUL TO

AMERICANS.

David: WELL, THAT

REALLY GIVES YOU A SENSE

OF WHY DONALD TRUMP LOVES

GEORGE PATTON: ALL IN FOR

AMERICA, STOP YOUR

COMPLAINING, STOP YOUR

WHINING; IT'S ALL ABOUT

WINNING, FORGET LOSING.

THAT'S TRUMP, AND THAT'S

WHY HE LIKES MATTIS AND

WHY HE LOVED PATTON.

> WHEN WE COME BACK, THE

AFRICAN-AMERICAN COMMUNITY

AND ABORTION, SOME SERIOUS

CONCERNS THAT HAVE BEEN

GOING ON FOR A WHILE.

HOW ABORTION HAS REALLY

RUN THROUGH THAT COMMUNITY

SPECIFICALLY, AND BOY, OH,

BOY, HAVE THERE BEEN

PROBLEMS.

FILE."

FAITH LEADERS ARE OUT IN

FRONT ON THE LIFE ISSUE.

WE HEAR SO MUCH ABOUT

PRO-LIFE LEGISLATION IN

CONGRESS.

BUT LET'S TAKE A STEP BACK

FOR A MOMENT AND SEE HOW

THE PRO-LIFE ISSUE HAS

AFFECTED THE

AFRICAN-AMERICAN

COMMUNITY.

IT HAS, AND IN A BIG WAY.

AND FAITH LEADERS ARE

SPEAKING OUT ABOUT THAT,

ABOUT PLANNED PARENTHOOD,

ABOUT SOME OF THE FOUNDERS

OF PLANNED PARENTHOOD,

MARGARET SANGER AND SOME

OF HER CONTROVERSIAL

COMMENTS AS WELL.

AABIGAIL ROBERTSON HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: MARGARET

SANGER STRIVED FOR A

SOCIETY TO ONLY THOSE SHE

DEEMED FIT TO HAVE

CHILDREN.

I THINK THE GREATEST

THING IN THE WORLD IS

BRINGING CHILDREN INTO THE

WORLD.

BUT THOSE WHO HAVE DISEASE

FROM THEIR PARENTS, THAT

HAVE NO CHANCE TO BE A

HUMAN BEING, DELINQUENTS,

PRISONERS, ALL SORTS OF

THINGS, MARKED WHEN

THEY'RE BORN, THAT, TO ME,

IS THE GREATEST SIN.

Reporter: CRITICS

CALL HER A RACIST PROMOTER

WHO TARGETED BLACK

COMMUNITIES WITH HER

PLANNED PARENTHOOD

CLINICS.

MARGARET SANGER ONCE

SAID, COLORED PEOPLE ARE

LIKE WEEDS.

THEY NEED TO BE

EXTERMINATED.

Reporter: 75% OF

PLANNED PARENTHOOD

COMMUNITIES ARE LOCATED IN

MINORITY COMMUNITIES.

Reporter: DR. KING

SAYS WHILE

AFRICAN-AMERICANS MAKE UP

OM 13% OF THE U.S.

POPULATION, OVER 30% OF

ABORTED BABIES ARE FROM

BLACK MOTHERS.

UNDER THE VEIL OF

SECRECY AND DECEPTION, 60

PLUS MILLION BABIES HAVE

NOT BEEN BORN BECAUSE THEY

WERE ABORTED LEGALLY SINCE

'73.

ONE-THIRD OF THAT

POPULATION BELONGS TO THE

AFRICAN-AMERICAN

COMMUNITY.

Reporter: PLANNED

PARENTHOOD RECENTLY

CELEBRATED ITS 100th

ANNIVERSARY, PROMPTING

PRO-LIFE LEADERS TO UNITE

UNDER THE BANNER "100 NO

MORE."

IT HELD RALLIES LIKE THIS

ONE IN WASHINGTON, SPREAD

ACROSS THE COUNTRY, TO

ENLIGHTEN PEOPLE ABOUT

SANGER AND HER TRAGIC

LEGACY.

I HAVE A REAL SERIOUS

CONCERN ABOUT THE NUMBER

OF ABORTIONS THAT ARE

TAKING PLACE IN THE

MINORITY COMMUNITY,

PARTICULARLY THE BLACK

COMMUNITY.

I SEE THIS AS A FORM OF

GENOCIDE.

IT IS SOMETHING WE NEED TO

TAKE A SERIOUS LOOK AT.

Reporter: PLANNED

PARENTHOOD RECEIVES ABOUT

$500 MILLION EACH YEAR

FROM TAXPAYERS.

96% OF THE TIME THAT A

PREGNANT WOMAN WALKS INTO

THEIR CLINIC, SHE WILL

HAVE AN ABORTION.

Reporter: PRO-LIFE

ADVOCATES WANT CONGRESS TO

MOVE THAT MONEY TO CLINICS

THAT DO NOT PERFORM

ABORTIONS.

THEY NUMBER THE OTHER

CLINICS 20 TO 1.

THEY TRULY HELP POOR

WOMEN, AND CARE FOR THE

LEAST OF THESE, BUT THEY

DON'T DO ABORTIONS.

Reporter: ABIGAIL

ROBERTSON, REPORTING FOR

"THE BRODY FILE."

David: BY THE WAY,

WHEN WE COME BACK, MORE

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON.

SHE ASKED FOR ANOTHER

SEGMENT.

WE GAVE IT TO HER.

WE'RE PAYING HER EXTRA FOR

THIS.

A LITTLE CHRISTMAS BONUS.

SHE'LL BE BACK WITH AMBER

C. STRONG, WITH SOME

CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR THE

HOLIDAYS.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISH

IT -- DID I JUST SAY "MISH

IT?"

WE'LL KEEP THAT IN THE

David: AND WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO "THE

BRODY FILE."

LET'S TALK ABOUT

CHRISTMAS.

HEY, 12 DAYS, 11 DAYS -- I

DON'T KNOW HOW MANY DAYS.

THERE ARE SOME DAYS.

ANYHOW, AMBER C. STRONG,

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON -- LOOK,

THEY WORK HARD, BUT THEY

DIDN'T REALLY HAVE

ANYTHING BETTER TO DO, SO

THEY DECIDED TO COME UP

WITH A LIST OF CHRISTMAS

GIFTS FOR THE HOLIDAYS.

YOU'VE GOT TO CHECK THIS

OUT.

GATHER EVERYBODY AROUND

THE TELEVISION.

HAVE A LOOK.

Jennifer: SO WE KNOW

IT IS THE MOST WONDERFUL

TIME OF YEAR, BUT WE ALSO

KNOW IT IS THE MOST

STRESSFUL TIME OF YEAR AS

WELL.

THAT IS SO TRUE.

IT CAN BE SO HARD TO FIND

PERFECT GIFTS FOR

EVERYONE.

I SOMETIMES WALK INTO A

STORE AT THIS TIME OF THE

YEAR AND GET NAUSEOUS WITH

ALL OF THIS STUFF THEY'RE

TRYING TO SELL YOU

EVERYWHERE.

SO AMBER AND I HAVE COME

UP WITH A COUPLE OF

FAITH-BASED GIFTS, ALL

THAT YOU CAN BUY FROM THE

COMFORT OF YOUR COUCH.

SO JUST PICK THIS UP.

I HAVE THIS BOOK HERE, BY

EMILY WRIGHT, AND NOT ONLY

IS IT BEAUTIFUL, BUT IT

GIVES YOU TANGIBLE WAYS TO

GET YOUR LIFE ORGANIZED

AND GET YOURSELF TOGETHER.

AND IT HAS INTERACTIVE

LISTS THAT YOU CAN WRITE.

BUT THE WHOLE BOOK

CONSTANTLY REMINDS YOU

THAT NOBODY IS PERFECT.

GOD DOES NOT WANT US TO BE

PERFECT, AND WE SERVE A

GRACIOUS GOD.

Jennifer: THAT IS A

GREAT REMINDER FOR THIS

TIME OF THE YEAR, WHEN

THERE IS SO MUCH PRESSURE

ON HOW THINGS LOOK.

Reporter: THIS IS

SOLD AT WAL-MART AND

TARGET.

> SECONDLY, WE HAVE ONE

OF MY FAVORITE PRESENTS TO

GIVE EVERYBODY.

THESE ARE LITTLE JOURNALS

AND NOTEBOOKS.

THEY COME IN MANY

DIFFERENT SIZES.

THIS FIRST ONE IS JUST

COMPLETELY BLANK.

YOU CAN MAKE IT WHATEVER

YOU WANT.

THIS NEXT ONE IS ACTUALLY

MY 2017 PLANNER, SO I LOVE

IT BECAUSE IT IS

LIGHTWEIGHT, AND IT FITS

IN ALMOST ALL OF MY

PURCHASES WHEN I TRAVEL

AND THEY'RE REALLY PRETTY.

AND THEN THEY HAVE PRAYER

AND GRATITUDE JOURNALS,

AND THESE ARE FOR FOUR

DAYS.

IT IS GREAT TO DO IT

DURING LENT.

I LIKE TO DO THEM

YEAR-ROUND.

AND THERE IS A PLACE TO

WRITE A SCRIPTURE.

AND THAT IS A GREAT

GIFT FOR GOING INTO THE

FUTURE.

IT IS A GREAT PLACE TO

KEEP THINGS ALL IN ONE

PLACE.

AND THE OTHER INSERTS

THEY HAVE, MEAL PLANNERS,

WEDDING DIARIES, BABY

JOURNALS, EVERYTHING.

THEY GIVE FIRST-TIME

BUYERS A DISCOUNT, SO

CHECK THAT OUT.

I LOVE DISCOUNTS.

DEFINITELY.

> NECK WNEXT WE HAVE THESE

SCRIPTURE CARDS.

THEY'RE HAND PICKED BY

SADIE ROBERTSON.

I LOVE HER.

SO, AMBER, PICK A CARD,

ANY CARD.

I WILL GO WITH THIS ONE

ON TOP.

AND IT HAS A HAPPY HEART

MAKES A FAIT FACE CHEERFUL.

I MIGHT HAVE PICKED

THAT BECAUSE I LOVE THAT

CARD.

I HAVE THESE ALL OVER MY

HOUSE, ALL OVER MY DESK.

IT IS A GREAT WAY TO

MEMORIZE SCRIPTURE.

THEY HAVE TONS OF

DIFFERENT OPTIONS.

THEY'RE REALLY PRETTY.

IF PEOPLE WALK BY,

SOMETIMES I'LL GIVE IT TO

THEM.

AND THEY'RE GREAT STOCKING

STUFFERS.

> MOVING ON, THIS IS

SOMETHING I FOUND A MONTH

AGO, FROM

pronetowonderLA.com.

AND THEY HAVE OVER 50

DIFFERENT OPTIONS.

OR IF THERE IS A VERSE

THAT SPEAKS TO YOU, YOU

CAN CUSTOMIZE YOUR OWN

CASE AND THEY'LL SEND YOU

WHATEVER VERSE YOU WANT ON

THESE PRETTY LITTLE PHONE

CASES.

AND THEY HAVE THESE WALL

ART WITH DIFFERENT

SCRIPTURES YOU CAN HANG IN

YOUR HEART.

AND I'LL HAND IT OVER TO

YOU.

Jennifer: WE'RE SO

EXCITED ABOUT GIVING THE

CUSTOM SCRIPTURES BECAUSE

A LOT OF TIMES WHEN YOU GO

TO THE BIG BOX STORES, YOU

CAN'T REALLY GET EXACTLY

WHAT YOU NEED.

SO MY FAVORITE PLACE THIS

YEAR IS HOBBY LOBBY.

I'M DE DECORATING A NEW

HOUSE.

SO THE WONDERFUL THINGS I

FOUND IN HOBBY LOBBY ARE

THE WALL ORNAMENTS THAT

HAVE UNIQUE VERSES.

THERE IS STUFF YOU'RE NOT

GOING TO FIND ANYWHERE

ELSE.

CHECK OUT HOBBY LOBBY.

I THINK IT IS FREE

SHIPPING RIGHT NOW IF YOU

SPEND OVER $50.

40% OFF ON ONE ITEM.

AND I'M ALL ABOUT THE

COUPONS.

YOU KNOW THAT.

SO LOTS OF GREAT DEALS ON

HOBBY LOBBY'S

CYBER-WEEKEND GOING INTO

CHRISTMASTIME.

AND I JUST LOVE WALKING

INTO A HOUSE AND SEEING

DIFFERENT BIBLE VERSES.

IT MAKES ME HAPPY AND PUTS

A SMILE ON MY FACE.

SO ONE FINAL PRESENT WE

WANT TO TALK ABOUT THAT IS

FREE FOR EVERYBODY IS THE

GIFT OF YOUR PRESENCE AND

YOUR TIME.

SO WE JUST WANT TO REMIND

YOU ALL WHEN YOU GO HOME

FOR CHRISTMAS, OR WHEN YOU

GO TO CHRISTMAS DINNERS,

WHATEVER, PUT YOUR PHONES

AWAY.

UNPLUG AND REALLY ENGAGE

WITH THE PEOPLE AROUND

YOU, AND JUST SHOW THEM

THE LOVE OF GOD.

Jennifer: THE

GREATEST GIFT IS THE GIFT

OF FAMILY AND YOUR

PRESENCE.

AND ENJOY THIS ADVENT

SEASON.

David: JUST SO YOU

UNDERSTAND, THOSE WERE ALL

FAITH-BASED GIFTS.

BECAUSE I PRETTY MUCH

ADLIBBED MY WAY THROUGH

THE WHOLE SHOW, SO WE'RE

OVER.

FOLLOW US ON Facebook,

TWITTER, AND INSTAGRAM.

THERE IS A LOT OF STUFF.

I'LL CHECK WITH MY

14-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER, AND

SHE'LL TELL ME ALL ABOUT

WHAT I NEED TO BE ON.

IN THE MEANTIME, GOD BLESS

YOU.

AND HAVE A GREAT WEEK.

AND THE CHRISTMAS EPISODE

IS COMING SOON.
