Efrem: SECONDS AWAY

ON "STUDIO 5"...

*

* IT'S WHO YOU ARE

Efrem: THE NAME,

WHAT'S BEHIND IT?

IT'S A PLACE WHERE

NORMAL, UNGUARDED, REAL

LIFE HAPPENS.

THAT'S WHERE IT NEEDS TO

BURN THE BRIGHTEST.

Efrem: AND THEN...

* I AM WHO I AM TODAY

Efrem: THE

UNMISTAKABLE VOICE OF AN

AMERICAN IDOL.

THE FIRST TIME I SANG

IT WAS BECAUSE MY FATHER

PUT A MIC IN MY HAND AND

TOLD ME WHAT TO DO.

THAT'S A GOO IT'S A LITTLE LATE FOR

TARGET PRACTICE NOW, DON'T

YOU THINK?

Efrem: WE'RE SETTING

THE STAGE FOR THE OSCARS

IN "STUDIO 5," STARTING

NOW.

*

Efrem: AND WELCOME TO

"STUDIO 5."

WE ARE COUNTING DOWN YOUR

TOP FIVE UPLIFTING

ENTERTAINMENT HEADLINES

THIS WEEK.

HERE IS A LOOK AT THE

FIRST TWO.

COMING IN AT NUMBER FIVE

THIS WEEK...

WE'RE BETTER LOOKING

THAN IN THE MOVIES.

ANYWAY...

[LAUGHTER]

ASHTON KUTCHER IS

TRYING TO SHINE A LIGHT ON

SECTSSEX TRAFFICKING.

KUTCHER TESTIFIED AT THE

SENATE HEARING IN

WASHINGTON, D.C. NOT AS AN

ACTOR, BUT AS THE

CO-FOUNDER OF THORN, HIS

ANTI-TRAFFICKING

FOUNDATION AND TECHNOLOGY

COMPANY.

I'VE BEEN ON F.B.I.

RAIDS WHERE I'VE SEEN

THINGS THAT NO PERSON

SHOULD EVER SEE.

Efrem: AND NOW TO

NUMBER FOUR...

THERE ARE MANY

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE

HISTORY OF THE EARTH.

WHERE DID IT COME FROM?

Efrem: THIS NEW

DOCUMENTARY DIVES INTO THE

FIRST BOOK OF THE BIBLE,

SEEKING TO ANSWER THE

QUESTION: IS GENESIS

HISTORY?

DALE PACKET NARRATES AND

HOSTS THE DOCUMENTARY.

IS GENESIS HISTORY?

THAT IS THE GREAT

QUESTION, IS IT NOT?

BECAUSE WE'RE IN A BIG

BATTLE OVER THAT RIGHT

NOW.

I BELIEVE THE ANSWER IS

YES.

Efrem: IS GENESIS

HISTORY HITS THEATERS FOR

ITS ONE-NIGHT SHOWING ON

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23rd.

I STANDING HERE ASKING

SCIENTISTS TO HELP US

UNDERSTAND WHAT WE SEE

AROUND US.

Efrem: THAT'S A LOOK

AT THE FIRST TWO.

> THE BAND HOUSE FIRES

CAN TRACE ITS ORIGINS BACK

IN 2009, WHEN A FEW

HUNDRED PEOPLE CAME

TOGETHER TO START A CHURCH

WITH A DIFFERENT KIND OF

FEELING.

NOT ONLY DID THEY START A

NEW CHURCH, THEY ALSO

STARTED A MUSIC MOVEMENT.

WE SAT DOWN WITH THE LEAD

MEMBER OF HOUSE FIRES, TO

TALK ABOUT FATHERHOOD AND

THEIR SIT SONG, "GOOD,

GOOD FATHER."

HE IS THIS WEEK'S "STUDIO

5" INTERVIEW.

* WORTHY OF EVERY SONG

WITH COULD EVER SING *

* WORTHY OF ALL THE THINGS

WE COULD EVER BRING *

Efrem: WHEN DID YOU

COME TO MUSIC, OR DID

MUSIC COME TO YOU?

WHAT HAPPENED?

MY DAD IS A PASTOR IN

ATLANTA.

SO I GREW UP AROUND THE

CHURCH AND MUSIC.

AND SO FAITH, MUSIC, ALL

THAT WAS KIND OF THE SAME.

WE HAD LIKE A GARAGE BAND

IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD.

AND IT WAS JUST A WAY TO

HAVE FUN WITH FRIENDS.

MUSIC WAS THIS VEHICLE OF

CONNECTION AND COMMUNION

WITH GOD THAT SET ME FREE.

I REMEMBER THIS YOUNG

EVANGELIST FROM THE U.K.

CAME TO MY DAD'S CHURCH,

AND I WAS PLAYING IN THE

YOUTH PRAISE BAND AT THE

TIME.

IT IS A REALLY SMALL,

NON-DENOMINATIONAL CHURCH.

AND AFTERWARDS HE CAME UP

TO ME AND HE LOOKED AT ME

AND HE SAID, THIS MESSAGE

WAS FOR YOU.

AND I WAS, LIKE, WHATEVER.

Efrem: OH, YOUR BOLD.

IT WAS JUST KIND OF

LIKE, YEAH.

HE SAID, NO, YOU'RE GOING

TO WRITE SONGS.

AND AT THE TIME, I HAD NOT

SUNG.

AND HE SAID YOU'RE GOING

TO USE YOUR VOICE AND YOUR

GOING TO SING.

* WORTHY OF EVERY SONG WE

COULD EVER SING *

Efrem: "HOUSE FIRE,"

THE NAME, HOW DID THAT

COME ABOUT?

IT IS A PLACE WHERE

NORMAL, UNGUARDED LIFE

HAPPENS IS A HUMP, AND

THAT'S WHERE YOU LEARN

PATIENCE WITH YOUR SPOUSE

AND KINDNESS TO YOUR KIDS,

AND, YOU KNOW, THAT'S LIKE

THE REAL STUFF.

AND SO THAT'S WHERE IT

NEEDS TO BURN THE

BRIGHTEST.

Efrem: ONE OF YOUR

MOST POPULAR SONGS, "GOOD,

GOOD FATHER," DID YOU

WRITE THAT?

I'M ONE OF THE WRITERS,

YEAH.

* OH, I HEARD A THOUSAND

STORIES *

* OF WHAT THEY THINK

YOU'RE LIKE *

AS I WOULD LISTEN, YOU

START TO NOTICE SLIGHTLY

DIFFERENT THREADS OF

THINGS.

WHEN YOU GET DOWN TO IT,

THIS PERSON SAYS GOD IS

LIKE THIS.

AND THIS OTHER PERSON WILL

SAY GOD IS LIKE THIS.

AND ANOTHER PERSON WILL

SAY GOD IS LIKE THIS.

WHICH ISN'T A BIG DEAL

WHEN YOU'RE YOUNG, BUT

WHEN I STARTED HAVING

KIDS, AND I'M LOOKING AT

MY DAUGHTER, HARPER GREY,

AND I'M, LIKE, HOW AM I

GOING TO EXPLAIN GOD TO

YOU.

HOW AM I GOING TO

INTRODUCE YOU TO SOMEONE

WHO I HAS SO TRANSFORMED MY

LIFE?

* YOU KNOW JUST WHAT WE

NEED BEFORE WE SAY A

WORD *

* YOU'RE A GOOD, GOOD

FATHER *

* THAT'S WHO YOU ARE

* THAT'S WHO YOU ARE

* THAT'S WHO YOU ARE

*

AS WE WORSHIPPED TO

THAT SONG IN OUR OWN

COMMUNITY, WE WERE BEING

HEALED FROM THINGS WE

DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WE NEEDED

TO BE HEALED FROM.

RIGHT?

WE'RE, LIKE, ALL JUST

EXPERIENCING LIKE A RECAL

RECALIBRATING OF OUR

HEARTS.

TO SEE THAT CONNECT WITH

SO MANY PEOPLE, IT WAS SO

HUMBLING AND SO

MIND-BLOWING, SURPRISING.

IT'S ALSO SO ENCOURAGING.

THAT MESSAGE IS SOMETHING

WE CAN STAND ON.

Efrem: YOU ARE HERE

ON THE CAMPUS OF VIRGINIA

UNIVERSITY, AND SO

OBVIOUSLY YOUR MUSIC

RESONATES WITH COLLEGE

STUDENTS.

WHY DO YOU THINK THAT IS?

THERE SEEMS TO BE A

PULL AND A LEAN TOWARDS

THINGS THAT DON'T -- THAT

AREN'T PRESENTED AS

PERFECT AND POLISHED, AND

TO HAVE WORSHIP SOUND

LIKE -- WORSHIP AND

EXPRESSION AND MUSIC CARRY

THAT TECTURE, I THINK.

THAT'S THE REASON WHY IT

RESONATES WITH ME.

I WANT MY KIDS TO -- WHEN

WE TALK ABOUT WORSHIP, I

DON'T WANT THE FIRST IMAGE

THAT THEY HAVE TO BE

SUNDAY, BIG STAGE, LIGHTS,

FOG, CAMERAS, ACTION.

THE FIRST THOUGHT I WANT,

WHEN WE TALK ABOUT

WORSHIP, IS MY REAL LIFE

BEFORE GOD.

*

* AND WE CALL DEEPER

STILL *

AND WE CALL YOU DEEPER,

STILL *

* YOU'RE A GOOD, GOOD

FATHER *

* THAT'S WHO YOU ARE

* THAT'S WHO YOU ARE

THAT'S WHO YOU ARE *

*

WHO I AM.

* IT'S WHO I AM

* YOU'RE A GOOD, GOOD

FATHER *

* THAT'S WHO YOU ARE

* THAT'S WHO YOU ARE

* THAT'S WHO YOU ARE

Efrem: AND "HOUSE

FIRES" HAS RELEASED THREE

NEW RECORDINGS, AND THE

LATEST IS CALLED "HOUSE

FIRES THREE."

STILL AHEAD ON "STUDIO

5"... *

I AM WHO I AM TODAY

BECAUSE GOD USED EVERY ONE

OF MY MISTAKES *

Efrem: GETTING REAL

WITH AN AMERICAN IDOL.

Efrem: WELCOME BACK

TO "STUDIO 5."

WE'RE CONTINUING A

COUNTDOWN OF THIS WEEK'S

UPLIFTING ENTERTAINMENT

NEWS STORIES.

HERE ARE THE NEXT TWO.

COMING IN AT NUMBER THREE

THIS WEEK...

THE NOMINEES FOR THE

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN

AND TOM JONES AND SIDNEY

PORTIER.

[APPLAUSE]

Efrem: THE FIRST

BEST ACTOR TURNS 90.

AMEN.

AMEN.

AMEN.

* AMEN, AMEN, AMEN

Efrem: THE ACTOR AND

ACTIVIST CELEBRATED THE

MILESTONE WITH FRIENDS AND

FAMILY, INCLUDING HIS

WIFE, SIX DAUGHTERS, EIGHT

GRANDCHILDREN, AND THREE

GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN.

EACH AND EVERY ONE OF

US BRINGS ALONG FOR THE

RIDE OUR OWN UNIQUE GIFTS.

Efrem: THAT BRINGS US

TO NUMBER TWO...

*

Efrem: POP STAR

BRITNEY SPEARS' TWITTER

FEED HAS MORE FOCUS ON

SCRIPTURE THESE DAYS,

SHARING BIBLE VERSES WITH

FANS, LIKE THIS TWEET FROM

PSALM 126, AND THIS ONE

FROM THE 6th CHAPTER OF

LUKE.

IN AN INTERVIEW WITH "Z"

MAGAZINE, SPEARS ANSWERED

CRITICS SAYING, "I HAVE MY

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND

MYSELF, AND THAT'S WHAT

MATTERS TO ME.

I REALLY DON'T CARE WHAT

MOST PEOPLE THINK."

Efrem: AND WE WILL

GET TO NUMBER ONE IN JUST

A LITTLE BIT.

> JUST THE OTHER DAY, I

WAS FEELING DOWN ON MYSELF

AND BLAMING MYSELF FOR A

LOT OF MISTAKES I'VE MADE

IN LIFE, AND I HAPPENED TO

HEAR A SONG BY FANTASIA

BARINO, AND ITS CALLED

"IT'S NECESSARY," AND IT'S

WHAT'S PLAYING IN MY EAR.

* I AM WHO I AM.

* I AM TODAY BECAUSE GOD

USED MY MISTAKES *

THE FIRST TIME SINGING

IT, IT WAS BECAUSE MY

FATHER PUT A MIC IN MY

HAND AND TOLD ME WHAT TO

DO.

I REALIZED THAT IS WHAT I

WAS SUPPOSED TO DO WHEN I

WAS AT A SERVICE.

AND THIS PEOPLE WOULD CRY.

AND THIS OLDER MOTHER

COMES UP TO ME AND SHE

SAYS, BABY, YOU TOUCHED

ME.

YOU ARE TRULY ANOINTED

WITH THIS.

AND THAT'S WHEN I KNEW

THAT'S WHAT GOD HAD FOR

ME, THAT I COULD BLESS

PEOPLE THROUGH MY MUSIC.

* I AM WHO I AM TODAY

* BECAUSE USED EVERY ONE

OF MY MISTAKES *

* HE WORKED THEM FOR MY

GOOD *

* LIKE NO ONE ELSE EVER,

EVER, EVER COULD *

OH, YEAH.

* GOD TOLD ME TO TELL YOU

YOU *

*

EVERYTHING YOU'RE GOING

THROUGH *

* IT IS NECESSARY

[APPLAUSE]

Efrem: THAT SONG WAS

WRITTEN BY DARIUS REED,

AND HE IS GOING TO

RERECORD IT WITH FANTASIA

SHA IIN THE COMING MONTHS.

> STILL AHEAD ON "STUDIO

5"...

YOU WEREN'T LIKE ANYONE

ELSE.

THEY'RE SAYING YOU COULD

GO TO PRISON.

I DON'T KNOW HOW I'M

GOING TO LIVE WITH MYSELF

IF I DON'T STAY TRUE TO

WHAT I BELIEVE.

Efrem: SEE WHY THIS

FILM IS A CONTENDER FOR

THIS YEAR'S HIGHEST HONOR,

Efrem: WELCOME BACK

TO "STUDIO 5" AS WE

CONTINUE OUR COUNTDOWN.

HERE IS A LOOK AT NUMBER

ONE.

AND NOW TO NUMBER ONE...

WHAT DO YOU DO AFTER

THE OSCARS?

IF YOU'RE LUCKY, YOU GO TO

THE GOVERNOR'S BALL, THE

OFFICIAL AFTER PARTY OF

THE ACADEMY AWARDS.

AND THEY'RE ALREADY

CHILLING THE CHAMPAGNE AND

CAVIAR.

Efrem: THE COUNTDOWN

TO OSCARS GOLD IS IN FULL

SWING.

IT LOOKS LIKE IT COULD BE

A BIG NIGHT FOR "LA LA

LAND" WITH A RECORD 14

NBC'S THI14NOMINATIONS THIS YEAR.

I GOT A CALL BACK.

COME ON.

FOR THE SHOW I WAS

TELLING YOU ABOUT.

Efrem: WE ARE IN THE

MIDDLE OF AWARDS SEASON.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT,

"HACKSAW RIDGE" WAS

NOMINATED FOR SIX ACADEMY

AWARDS.

AND RIGHT NOW WE'VE GOT

YOUR FIRST LOOK.

YOU THINK YOU'RE BETTER

THAN US?

NO.

WHAT IF YOU WAS

ATTACKED?

WHOA!

LIKE THAT.

Efrem: "HACKSAW

RIDGE" IS THE HEROIC TRUE

STORY OF DESMOND DOSS, A

MILITARY MEDIC WHO RESCUED

MORE THAN 70 MEN FROM

BATTLE DURING WORLD WAR

II.

AND HE DID IT WITHOUT A

SINGLE WEAPON.

FICTION IS NOWHERE NEAR

AS GOOD AS THE TRUTH THAT

WAY.

YOU CAN'T MAKE THIS STUFF

UP.

WE ALL WISH WE HOPE THAT

WE HAVE THAT KIND OF

STRENGTH AND COURAGE, BUT

IT IS QUITE CLEAR THAT

ONLY A MAN LIKE DESMOND

DOSS DOES.

IT REALLY SPOKE TO MY

HEART.

TEARDROPS ON PAGE 94.

Efrem: MEL GIBSON

DIRECTS THE FILM, HIS

FIRST IN 10 YEARS.

WOULD YOU CALL THIS A

COMPANION PIECE TO

"BRAVEHEART?"

IN A SENSE.

BUT IT IS NOR INVOLVED.

MORE INVOLVED.

IT IS REALLY ABOUT LOVE,

NOT WAR.

THANK YOU FOR LETTING

ME DO MY PART IN THIS WAR

IN SAVING THE LIVES OF MY

FELLOW MAN.

Efrem: IT IS A LIVING

STORY OF LOVE FOR GOD, HIS

COUNTRY, AND HIS WIFE,

DOROTHY.

I FELL IN LOVE WITH YOU

BECAUSE YOU WEREN'T LIKE

ANYONE ELSE.

THEY'RE SAYING YOU COULD

GO TO PRISON.

I DON'T KNOW HOW I'M

GOING TO LIVE WITH MYSELF

IF I DON'T STAY TRUE TO

WHAT I BELIEVE.

IT IS JUST THIS

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE BETWEEN

THEM.

AND I WAS SO HAPPY TO ROLL

INTO THAT BECAUSE THE LOVE

FEELS SO PURE AND SO

DIFFERENT FROM SOME OF THE

ROMANCES WE SEE TODAY.

Efrem: I KNOW YOU DID

A LOT OF RESEARCH ON WOMEN

DURING THAT TIME PERIOD.

WHAT DID YOU FIND OUT?

I ACTUALLY DID A THE

LOT OF RESEARCH, MORE

SPECIFICALLY ON DOROTHY.

THERE IS HARDLY ANY

FOOTAGE OF HER, BUT THE

FEW THINGS I DID SEE, I

SAW HOW SHE WALKS WITH

SUCH GRACE AND ELEGANCE.

AND SHE IS A WOMAN OF

GREAT FAITH.

PRIVATE DOSS, YOU ARE

FREE TO RUN INTO THE HELL

FIRE OF BATTLE WITHOUT A

SINGLE WEAPON TO PROTECT

YOURSELF.

Efrem: HE GOES INTO

BATTLE WITH ONLY HIS FAITH

IN GOD AND HIS BIBLE AS A

WEAPON.

HOW DO YOU DO THAT?

RIGHT.

EXACTLY.

THAT IS THE QUESTION.

AND I THINK IT IS

MYSTERIOUS.

IT IS DEEPLY MYSTERIOUS.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW IF HE

KNEW HOW HE DID IT.

THE WAY I SEE IT, AND THE

WAY MEL FRAMED IT FOR US

AS A STORY, IS THAT YOU

FEEL THERE IS NO CHOICE.

HE DOESN'T ACTUALLY HAVE A

CHOICE IN THE MATTER.

THERE IS A CALLING.

HE ASKS, ON TOP OF THE

RIDGE, WHEN EVERYONE IS

RETREATING, HE PAUSES AND

TAKES A SECOND AND HE

ASKS, WHAT DO YOU WANT OF

ME.

TUNING IN TO THE VOICE OF

HIS GOD.

WHAT DO YOU WANT OF ME?

JUST DISCOVERING THAT THIS

IS A MAN THAT LIVED WAS A

SURPRISE IN ITS ENTIRETY.

IT'S LIKE GUM ON YOUR

SHOE, ISN'T IT.

IT'S A LITTLE LATE FOR

TARGET PRACTICE NOW, DON'T

YOU THINK?

Efrem: HOW WOULD YOU

DESCRIBE WHAT HAPPENS TO

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN

SERGEANT HOWELL AND

DESMOND?

I THINK SERGEANT HOWELL

STARTS WITH HIS OWN

RELATIONSHIP AND FAITH.

BUT IT IS IN ABSOLUTE

COLLISION WITH MY BELIEF

SYSTEM.

WE ARE GOING TO WAR.

IT IS NOT A GOOD FIT FOR

SOMEONE WHO IS NOT

PREPARED TO CARRY A GUN.

AS WE GO ON, WHAT I LOVE

ABOUT OUR RELATIONSHIP,

WHICH I THINK IS DIFFERENT

FROM ANY OF THE OTHERS, IS

THERE IS A SENSE OF HUMOR

WHERE YOU REALIZE THAT

THERE IS NO APOLOGY

NEEDED.

WE KIND OF GOT WHO EACH

OTHER WAS, AND WE'RE JUST

BOTH LOOKING AT EACH OTHER

IN THESE KIND OF ODDITY

WAYS AND ENJOYING EACH

OTHER.

BUT THERE IS SOMETHING

ABOUT GIVING TOO MUCH AWAY

IN THAT MOMENT, WHERE HE

COMES FOR ME, WHERE WE

BOTH KIND OF PROTECT THE

OTHER.

MY PHILOSOPHY DOES SORT OF

SAVE HIM, AND HIS

PHILOSOPHY HELPS SAVE ME.

THERE IS A BEAUTY IN THAT

YING AND YANG THAT COMES

TOGETHER.

Efrem: "HACKSAW

RIDGE" IS AVAILABLE RIGHT

NOW ON D.V.D. AND FOR

DIGITAL DOWNLOAD.

> STILL TO COME HERE ON

"STUDIO 5"...

WHEN I READ THE

SCANDAL, IT WAS ALL THERE

ON THE PAGE.

Efrem: THE STAR OF

"SCANDAL,SCANDAL" SETS US UP FOR A

POWERFUL, FINAL WORD.

DON'T GIVE INTO FEAR.

CONTINUE TO DEFINE YOUR

UNIQUE PATH AND WITH THE

EXPERIENCE OF THE

Efrem: WE HAVE

WRAPPED THE COUNTDOWN AND

WE'RE JUST ABOUT OUT OF

TIME FOR THIS EDITION OF

"STUDIO 5."

SO LET'S TAKE A LOOK AHEAD

TO WHAT IS COMING UP NEXT

WEEK.

"STUDIO 5" IS THE ONLY

TELEVISION CREW ONSET FOR

THE FILMING OF THE NEW

MOVIE "THE SHACK."

YOU'RE THE ALMIGHTY

GOD, RIGHT?

YOU KNOW EVERYTHING.

YOU'RE EVERYWHERE, ALL AT

ONCE.

YOU HAVE LIMITLESS POWER.

AND YET SOMEHOW YOU LET MY

LITTLE GIRL DIE.

Efrem: YOU PLAY GOD.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT THE ROLE

OF GOD THAT MADE YOU WANT

TO DO IT?

WELL, THERE IS A

BEAUTIFUL JOURNEY THAT YOU

HAVE TO TAKE THAT I

REALIZE NOW, WHEN YOU TAKE

ON A ROLE -- WELL, THE

ROLE OF GOD.

IT JUST SHOWS YOU JUST HOW

HUMAN YOU ARE.

YOU ABANDONED HER.

I NEVER LEFT HER.

IF YOU ARE WHO YOU SAY

YOU ARE, WHERE WERE YOU

WHEN I NEEDED YOU?

SON, WHEN ALL YOU SEE

IS YOUR PAIN, YOU LOSE

SIGHT OF ME.

Efrem: AND YOU CAN

LOOK FORWARD TO THAT STORY

NEXT WEEK.

> TIME NOW TO GET READY

FOR THE FINAL WORD.

AND HERE TO SET US UP IS

KERRY WASHINGTON.

I THINK MORE YOUNG

PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW THAT.

WHEN YOU HAVE THAT THOUGHT

THAT YOU'RE NOT ENOUGH,

THAT IS BASED ON A LIE

THAT SOMEBODY SAID TO YOU.

OR A LIE THAT SOMEBODY DID

TO YOU.

SOMEBODY SAID OR DID

SOMETHING TO YOU TO MAKE

YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'RE NOT

ENOUGH.

AND THAT'S NOT TRUE.

THAT YOU ARE EVERYTHING

THAT YOU NEED TO BE.

THAT YOU HAVE EVERYTHING

THAT YOU NEED TO HAVE TO

BE THE PERSON THAT YOU'RE

MEANT TO BE, AND TO BE THE

BEST VERSION OF WHO YOU'RE

MEANT TO BE.

IT MAY MEAN THAT YOU HAVE

TO WORK REALLY HARD.

AND IT MAY MEAN THAT YOU

HAVE TO ASK FOR HELP, BUT

YOU ARE PERFECTLY BLESSED.

YOU KNOW, YOU ARE EXACTLY

WHO YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE,

TO BE JOYFUL IN THIS LIFE.

SO DON'T BE AFRAID TO WORK

HARD.

AND DON'T BE AFRAID TO ASK

FOR HELP SO YOU CAN GET

THERE, BECAUSE THAT'S YOUR

TRUTH.

Efrem: THOSE ARE

WORDS FROM KERRY

WASHINGTON IN AN INTERVIEW

WITH A.O.L. BUILD.

AND WHEN I HEAR THOSE

WORDS, I IMMEDIATELY THINK

OF SOMETHING MY AUNT USED

TO SAY TO ME WHEN I WAS A

KID AND DOWN ON MYSELF.

SHE WOULD REMIND ME ALL

THE TIME, "GOD DON'T MAKE

NO JUNK."

AND I SAY THAT TO YOU

BECAUSE YOU ARE, INDEED,

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO BE.

YOU ARE FEARFULLY AND

WONDERFULLY MADE.

AND THAT IS THE FINAL WORD

FOR THIS EDITION OF

"STUDIO 5."

UNTIL NEXT TIME, REACH OUT

AND TOUCH ME AT EFREM

GRAHAM ON Facebook,

TWITTER, AND INSTAGRAM.

AND COME ON BACK AND SEE

WHERE "STUDIO 5" TAKES YOU
