  • - Can't wait to see ya there in the Big Apple.
  • 00:00:19.140 --> 00:00:22.060
  • I don't think it's always bad, because sometimes people
  • 00:00:25.040 --> 00:00:28.200
  • just have to really understand
  • 00:00:28.200 --> 00:00:30.100
  • how you feel about a certain thing.
  • 00:00:30.100 --> 00:00:31.280
  • But you shouldn't just spaz for no reason.
  • 00:00:31.280 --> 00:00:35.050
  • You shouldn't just trip out for no reason.
  • 00:00:35.050 --> 00:00:36.280
  • Like my dad used to just trip out for no reason.
  • 00:00:36.280 --> 00:00:39.270
  • So I had to kinda and I (audience laughs)
  • 00:00:40.080 --> 00:00:43.050
  • would watch (laughs). (DeeDee laughs loudly)
  • 00:00:43.050 --> 00:00:44.220
  • - [DeeDee] Cut his Mike.
  • 00:00:44.220 --> 00:00:45.270
  • - You don't know which mike I got.
  • 00:00:46.250 --> 00:00:48.160
  • - But then I mean you know,
  • 00:01:23.220 --> 00:01:24.020
  • back in the day.
  • 00:01:24.050 --> 00:01:26.160
  • You know he is a spaz artist.
  • 00:01:27.090 --> 00:01:29.010
  • You know what I'm saying?
  • 00:01:29.010 --> 00:01:29.290
  • Like any little thing man.
  • 00:01:29.290 --> 00:01:32.170
  • It can go from zero to 100 real quick.
  • 00:01:32.170 --> 00:01:35.100
  • - In zero seconds.
  • 00:01:35.100 --> 00:01:36.260
  • - In zero seconds.
  • 00:01:37.220 --> 00:01:38.290
  • So I've seen a lot of those traits in me
  • 00:01:38.290 --> 00:01:42.250
  • where I kind of just pop off or just go off.
  • 00:01:42.250 --> 00:01:45.260
  • And I think that's like my biggest thing
  • 00:01:45.260 --> 00:01:48.140
  • to like relax, just to calm down, kinda breathe.
  • 00:01:48.140 --> 00:01:52.170
  • And that's why I even have told her,
  • 00:01:52.170 --> 00:01:54.060
  • like if I'm ever talking and I'm just like.
  • 00:01:54.060 --> 00:01:57.020
  • You've noticed it from my dad he get emotional
  • 00:01:58.250 --> 00:02:00.250
  • and stuff like that.
  • 00:02:00.250 --> 00:02:02.090
  • Once we start talking and it's something that we are
  • 00:02:02.090 --> 00:02:04.030
  • passionate about then it's like.
  • 00:02:04.170 --> 00:02:06.200
  • "We like, you know, and you gotta huh and you huh."
  • 00:02:06.200 --> 00:02:10.030
  • So it sometimes. (pastor laughs)
  • 00:02:10.050 --> 00:02:11.190
  • So it's like sometimes I just tell her to tell me
  • 00:02:14.020 --> 00:02:16.220
  • you know like alright relax it's cool.
  • 00:02:16.220 --> 00:02:19.010
  • Just you know. - [Keisha] I taught him that.
  • 00:02:19.010 --> 00:02:20.180
  • - [Pastor] You tell her to tell you.
  • 00:02:20.180 --> 00:02:21.200
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:02:21.200 --> 00:02:22.250
  • Not in the moment cause of course
  • 00:02:23.050 --> 00:02:24.150
  • I don't wanna hear it in the moment.
  • 00:02:24.150 --> 00:02:26.070
  • But I'm saying, (everyone laughs)
  • 00:02:26.070 --> 00:02:27.110
  • you know like right now we at home--
  • 00:02:27.110 --> 00:02:28.230
  • - Well that's the time it's most important.
  • 00:02:28.230 --> 00:02:30.140
  • - Yeah I know, but I'm saying I wouldn't
  • 00:02:30.140 --> 00:02:32.280
  • tell her in that moment.
  • 00:02:32.280 --> 00:02:34.060
  • I'm telling her ahead of time before, you know,
  • 00:02:34.060 --> 00:02:36.040
  • when I do kinda spaz.
  • 00:02:36.040 --> 00:02:40.120
  • Like try to get her to get me before I do spaz.
  • 00:02:41.150 --> 00:02:46.050
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:02:46.050 --> 00:02:48.040
  • - Can anybody relate to the spaz episodes?
  • 00:02:48.200 --> 00:02:52.090
  • Any brother's spaz in here still today?
  • 00:02:52.090 --> 00:02:56.070
  • You getting better?
  • 00:02:56.220 --> 00:02:57.220
  • (audience responds)
  • 00:02:57.220 --> 00:02:58.200
  • In Jesus name.
  • 00:02:58.200 --> 00:03:00.060
  • - Cause a lot of times that the--
  • 00:03:01.170 --> 00:03:02.290
  • - Hello, is my mike on?
  • 00:03:02.290 --> 00:03:04.150
  • - Yeah your mike is on.
  • 00:03:04.150 --> 00:03:05.080
  • - Oh okay.
  • 00:03:05.080 --> 00:03:06.150
  • Hold on though, hold on, hold on, hold on.
  • 00:03:06.150 --> 00:03:08.100
  • But yeah, the spazzing
  • 00:03:09.140 --> 00:03:12.120
  • is not always.
  • 00:03:13.090 --> 00:03:15.280
  • I don't think it's always bad, because sometimes people
  • 00:03:15.280 --> 00:03:19.140
  • just have to really understand
  • 00:03:19.140 --> 00:03:21.040
  • how you feel about a certain thing.
  • 00:03:21.040 --> 00:03:22.220
  • But you shouldn't just spaz for no reason.
  • 00:03:22.220 --> 00:03:25.290
  • You shouldn't just trip out for no reason.
  • 00:03:25.290 --> 00:03:27.220
  • Like my dad used to just trip out for no reason.
  • 00:03:27.220 --> 00:03:30.210
  • So I had to kinda and I (audience laughs)
  • 00:03:31.020 --> 00:03:33.290
  • would watch (laughs). (DeeDee laughs loudly)
  • 00:03:33.290 --> 00:03:35.160
  • - [DeeDee] Cut his Mike.
  • 00:03:35.160 --> 00:03:36.210
  • - You don't know which mike I got.
  • 00:03:37.190 --> 00:03:39.100
  • And I would notice how my mom kinda
  • 00:03:41.250 --> 00:03:45.220
  • would respond to how she would feel.
  • 00:03:46.010 --> 00:03:49.240
  • She would still show him the respect in front of us,
  • 00:03:49.240 --> 00:03:53.260
  • but I could tell it was something deeper than that.
  • 00:03:53.260 --> 00:03:55.250
  • So there's times when I don't want--
  • 00:03:55.250 --> 00:03:58.070
  • - Like what, how would you.
  • 00:03:58.070 --> 00:03:59.110
  • Cause see just--
  • 00:03:59.110 --> 00:04:00.210
  • - Awe baby we don't need to hear how you respond.
  • 00:04:00.210 --> 00:04:03.060
  • - [Joshua] And I'm a mama's boy.
  • 00:04:04.100 --> 00:04:05.240
  • So I pay attention to my mama, you know what I'm saying?
  • 00:04:05.240 --> 00:04:08.090
  • So it's like I would notice how her
  • 00:04:08.090 --> 00:04:11.240
  • body language just change.
  • 00:04:11.240 --> 00:04:13.230
  • And I don't want that to happen with my wife.
  • 00:04:13.230 --> 00:04:16.080
  • You know what I mean?
  • 00:04:16.080 --> 00:04:17.140
  • Even though we've had whatever problems.
  • 00:04:17.140 --> 00:04:19.110
  • I've spazzed she's spazzed, whatever.
  • 00:04:19.110 --> 00:04:22.120
  • It's like I still want us to be very close.
  • 00:04:22.240 --> 00:04:26.200
  • I still want us to be as good as friends
  • 00:04:26.200 --> 00:04:28.160
  • before we got married or even boyfriend and girlfriend.
  • 00:04:28.160 --> 00:04:33.160
  • Cause I mean we were good friends
  • 00:04:33.160 --> 00:04:35.070
  • way before any of this.
  • 00:04:35.070 --> 00:04:37.170
  • You know what I'm saying?
  • 00:04:37.270 --> 00:04:39.040
  • So it's like I've just had to learn from that.
  • 00:04:39.040 --> 00:04:42.060
  • Cause what I don't want in my household.
  • 00:04:42.060 --> 00:04:44.270
  • - And I just wanted to say that I think
  • 00:04:46.050 --> 00:04:48.260
  • it should be a mutual thing.
  • 00:04:48.260 --> 00:04:50.250
  • Like if I know that he's gonna trip out
  • 00:04:50.250 --> 00:04:53.040
  • with a certain thing,
  • 00:04:53.040 --> 00:04:54.100
  • just don't pay too much attention to it.
  • 00:04:54.100 --> 00:04:56.070
  • And the same for me,
  • 00:04:56.070 --> 00:04:57.130
  • because I may have an issue or whatever.
  • 00:04:57.130 --> 00:05:01.040
  • And just everybody spazzing just makes it worse.
  • 00:05:01.040 --> 00:05:04.060
  • So if I'm tripping out, just don't trip out with me.
  • 00:05:04.080 --> 00:05:07.080
  • - Yeah, and sometimes it's a. (audience laughs)
  • 00:05:07.080 --> 00:05:08.200
  • Yeah, and sometimes it's an understanding.
  • 00:05:08.280 --> 00:05:11.030
  • - [Pastor] Hey, hey, that's good word.
  • 00:05:11.030 --> 00:05:13.170
  • Turn to the person you with and tell them, say,
  • 00:05:13.170 --> 00:05:16.280
  • if I trip.
  • 00:05:16.280 --> 00:05:17.290
  • - [Audience] If I trip.
  • 00:05:17.290 --> 00:05:18.260
  • - Just don't trip with me.
  • 00:05:18.260 --> 00:05:20.090
  • - [Audience] Just don't trip with me.
  • 00:05:20.090 --> 00:05:21.200
  • - That's very good. - [Joshua] Cause it's really,
  • 00:05:21.200 --> 00:05:23.040
  • - [Joshua] an understanding - [Pastor] That's good word
  • 00:05:23.040 --> 00:05:24.140
  • - [Joshua] thing you know. - [Pastor] Keisha.
  • 00:05:24.140 --> 00:05:25.200
  • - [Joshua] You gotta understand who you with.
  • 00:05:25.200 --> 00:05:27.190
  • - How many of y'all know that's a good word?
  • 00:05:27.190 --> 00:05:29.230
  • That'll tweet right now.
  • 00:05:30.000 --> 00:05:31.190
  • Hashtag family flow.
  • 00:05:31.190 --> 00:05:34.010
  • When you trip just don't trip with me.
  • 00:05:34.140 --> 00:05:36.030
  • - [Joshua] Right, right, right.
  • 00:05:36.030 --> 00:05:37.160
  • And like I was saying, you just have to understand
  • 00:05:37.160 --> 00:05:39.170
  • your mate and who you're with.
  • 00:05:39.170 --> 00:05:41.120
  • Because like how earlier she said...
  • 00:05:41.120 --> 00:05:44.070
  • What you say, your mom.
  • 00:05:45.030 --> 00:05:47.070
  • "Well she liked him in the beginning but."
  • 00:05:47.140 --> 00:05:49.020
  • - [Keisha] No, that's what I meant.
  • 00:05:49.020 --> 00:05:50.100
  • - [Joshua] I know, I'm just saying as far as
  • 00:05:50.100 --> 00:05:53.000
  • how you have to know who you with.
  • 00:05:53.200 --> 00:05:56.030
  • Because I know how you saying it
  • 00:05:56.030 --> 00:05:57.230
  • and I know what you mean. - [Keisha] You could've taken
  • 00:05:57.230 --> 00:05:58.210
  • - [Keisha] it a different way.
  • 00:05:58.210 --> 00:05:59.280
  • - [Joshua] And I could take it a different way,
  • 00:05:59.280 --> 00:06:01.080
  • but I know you and I know how you talk.
  • 00:06:01.080 --> 00:06:03.010
  • So it's like I understand that.
  • 00:06:03.010 --> 00:06:04.290
  • I still accept it as if you said it in a sweet way.
  • 00:06:04.290 --> 00:06:07.290
  • Because I'm learning you, you know what I'm saying?
  • 00:06:07.290 --> 00:06:10.080
  • - [Audience] Awe.
  • 00:06:10.080 --> 00:06:11.230
  • - [Pastor] God dog, you get that from me right there boy.
  • 00:06:11.230 --> 00:06:14.100
  • That's what I'm saying.
  • 00:06:14.100 --> 00:06:15.230
  • Yeah that came from me.
  • 00:06:15.230 --> 00:06:17.060
  • - [Joshua] You know so baby. - [Pastor] That's my side
  • 00:06:17.060 --> 00:06:18.120
  • - [Pastor] right there.
  • 00:06:18.120 --> 00:06:19.170
  • There you go boy.
  • 00:06:20.150 --> 00:06:21.100
  • - But that's how it is.
  • 00:06:21.100 --> 00:06:23.220
  • You gotta know who you with.
  • 00:06:23.220 --> 00:06:25.080
  • Don't let em spaz out and you know they spaz out
  • 00:06:26.150 --> 00:06:30.110
  • and you trying to spaz out because you wanna be
  • 00:06:30.110 --> 00:06:34.040
  • as big and bad as they are.
  • 00:06:34.040 --> 00:06:36.010
  • No you have to kind of.
  • 00:06:36.010 --> 00:06:37.070
  • - [Pastor] You preaching good boy.
  • 00:06:37.070 --> 00:06:38.100
  • - You know you gotta fill your role
  • 00:06:38.100 --> 00:06:39.040
  • and play your part.
  • 00:06:39.040 --> 00:06:40.270
  • - [Pastor] That's the scripture in 1st Peter chapter three.
  • 00:06:42.000 --> 00:06:45.140
  • - Yeah he got the scripture I just you know.
  • 00:06:45.140 --> 00:06:47.290
  • (everyone laughs)
  • 00:06:47.290 --> 00:06:50.080
  • - You soon shall have the scripture.
  • 00:06:54.250 --> 00:06:57.130
  • - So you learn what--
  • 00:06:59.210 --> 00:07:01.070
  • - The Bible says dwell with them according to knowledge.
  • 00:07:01.070 --> 00:07:03.200
  • He knows her.
  • 00:07:03.200 --> 00:07:05.030
  • - [DeeDee] Right, and so he learned what not to do.
  • 00:07:05.030 --> 00:07:06.270
  • - That's cool. - [DeeDee] That's cool.
  • 00:07:06.270 --> 00:07:08.160
  • - [DeeDee] I think that's great, I really do.
  • 00:07:08.160 --> 00:07:10.150
  • - He watched me enough to say "I don't wanna do that."
  • 00:07:10.220 --> 00:07:15.000
  • - [DeeDee] I think that's great.
  • 00:07:16.060 --> 00:07:17.050

  • 00:07:35.010 --> 00:07:37.230
  • (everyone laughs)
  • 00:07:37.230 --> 00:07:40.010
  • - Hurry up.
  • 00:07:43.130 --> 00:07:44.160
  • Cause I'm about to blow!
  • 00:07:46.270 --> 00:07:48.050
  • - [DeeDee] I'm about to blow!
  • 00:07:48.050 --> 00:07:49.210
  • - [Pastor] Talk to me one of you guys.
  • 00:07:54.070 --> 00:07:55.230
  • - Okay, alright I'll go.
  • 00:07:57.180 --> 00:07:58.250
  • I learned, well from my parents side.
  • 00:07:59.130 --> 00:08:01.110
  • I learned watching my dad.
  • 00:08:01.110 --> 00:08:03.230
  • He was very consistent
  • 00:08:03.290 --> 00:08:08.070
  • in how he treated my mother.
  • 00:08:08.130 --> 00:08:10.000
  • Even when things were hectic, he always remained the same.
  • 00:08:10.230 --> 00:08:15.020
  • And so I learned how to maintain,
  • 00:08:15.090 --> 00:08:19.090
  • or attempt to.
  • 00:08:19.190 --> 00:08:21.060
  • I don't always do it.
  • 00:08:21.060 --> 00:08:22.110
  • Maintain a certain posture before her.
  • 00:08:22.110 --> 00:08:24.120
  • And then respect and honor for her.
  • 00:08:24.140 --> 00:08:26.020
  • And that's one thing I did get from him.
  • 00:08:26.020 --> 00:08:27.280
  • And then watching you guys.
  • 00:08:27.280 --> 00:08:30.010
  • I just watched how you love Dr. DeeDee.
  • 00:08:31.140 --> 00:08:34.200
  • And how you treat Dr. DeeDee.
  • 00:08:34.200 --> 00:08:36.140
  • It's almost like man how do you love somebody
  • 00:08:38.160 --> 00:08:42.270
  • so much--
  • 00:08:42.270 --> 00:08:44.150
  • - [Pastor] Go ahead and talk about it man.
  • 00:08:44.150 --> 00:08:45.140
  • Let the Lord.
  • 00:08:45.140 --> 00:08:46.180
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:08:46.180 --> 00:08:48.100
  • - [Kevin] He just come with him man.
  • 00:08:54.160 --> 00:08:56.010
  • - [Pastor] We gotta make some adjustments in the will.
  • 00:08:56.010 --> 00:08:58.180
  • (everyone laughs)
  • 00:08:58.180 --> 00:09:00.260
  • - [Joshua] As long as he straight I'm good.
  • 00:09:01.110 --> 00:09:03.130
  • - I mean just in summation I've just
  • 00:09:05.070 --> 00:09:07.230
  • watched how you treat her.
  • 00:09:07.230 --> 00:09:09.030
  • How you will randomly just grab her,
  • 00:09:09.030 --> 00:09:11.050
  • love on her, kiss on her.
  • 00:09:11.130 --> 00:09:12.260
  • And that's where Brit got it from I'm convinced.
  • 00:09:12.260 --> 00:09:15.040
  • - [Pastor] She is so affectionate.
  • 00:09:15.040 --> 00:09:16.150
  • - Cause she is woo!
  • 00:09:16.150 --> 00:09:17.230
  • And I wasn't. - [Pastor] Cause her mother
  • 00:09:17.230 --> 00:09:19.050
  • - [Pastor] is not like that. - [Kevin] Okay, well.
  • 00:09:19.050 --> 00:09:20.150
  • - [DeeDee] No I wasn't.
  • 00:09:20.150 --> 00:09:21.140
  • - [Pastor] She's coming along.
  • 00:09:21.140 --> 00:09:22.290
  • - [DeeDee] Yeah I've learned - [Pastor] She's getting better.
  • 00:09:22.290 --> 00:09:24.050
  • - [DeeDee] some things, I wasn't.
  • 00:09:24.050 --> 00:09:25.150
  • All the touching - [Pastor] But Britney is
  • 00:09:25.150 --> 00:09:26.290
  • and feeling it just wasn't. - [Pastor] a lot like me.
  • 00:09:26.290 --> 00:09:28.050
  • (Pastor stutters) - [DeeDee] Didn't do it.
  • 00:09:28.050 --> 00:09:29.090
  • - [Pastor] And Brelyn doesn't show
  • 00:09:29.090 --> 00:09:30.200
  • a lot of affection, although she wants a lot of it.
  • 00:09:30.230 --> 00:09:35.000
  • She must be the center of attraction Tim.
  • 00:09:35.140 --> 00:09:38.270
  • I promise you.
  • 00:09:38.270 --> 00:09:40.020
  • And if you ever get that twisted.
  • 00:09:40.020 --> 00:09:42.110
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:09:43.230 --> 00:09:46.050
  • She's rotten.
  • 00:09:46.240 --> 00:09:49.020
  • But it's a good rotten.
  • 00:09:49.220 --> 00:09:50.260
  • - It's a good rotten.
  • 00:09:51.000 --> 00:09:51.230
  • - [Pastor] It is.
  • 00:09:51.230 --> 00:09:52.110
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:09:52.110 --> 00:09:53.160
  • - See you just laugh and giggling about
  • 00:09:53.160 --> 00:09:54.270
  • everything right now. - [Tim] No, cause it is, no.
  • 00:09:54.270 --> 00:09:56.090
  • - [Tim] To me a bad, I hope I'm not taking over.
  • 00:09:56.160 --> 00:09:59.110
  • - No, no, we can back to her.
  • 00:09:59.110 --> 00:10:01.110
  • - [Tim] But people ask me a lot.
  • 00:10:01.110 --> 00:10:02.250
  • They look at the material wealth that God
  • 00:10:02.250 --> 00:10:06.000
  • has blessed this family with and they ask me,
  • 00:10:06.000 --> 00:10:08.180
  • "Is she spoiled?"
  • 00:10:08.250 --> 00:10:10.010
  • And I say she's a good spoiled.
  • 00:10:10.110 --> 00:10:12.220
  • Because when you think of all that God
  • 00:10:13.010 --> 00:10:15.210
  • has blessed you guys with you would automatically think
  • 00:10:15.210 --> 00:10:17.230
  • that she expects to have the best things.
  • 00:10:17.230 --> 00:10:20.200
  • And if she doesn't get it she throws a tantrum
  • 00:10:20.200 --> 00:10:22.270
  • and all that kind of thing.
  • 00:10:22.270 --> 00:10:24.030
  • And Brelyn is the total opposite.
  • 00:10:24.030 --> 00:10:25.080
  • - [Pastor] Absolutely.
  • 00:10:25.080 --> 00:10:25.290
  • She's a grinder,
  • 00:10:25.290 --> 00:10:27.050
  • she works with me. - [DeeDee] That's true.
  • 00:10:27.050 --> 00:10:28.120
  • - [Tim] It's about us together going
  • 00:10:28.120 --> 00:10:30.290
  • to a destination together.
  • 00:10:30.290 --> 00:10:33.050
  • It doesn't matter about if we have to struggle.
  • 00:10:33.050 --> 00:10:35.000
  • Like Brelyn is the kind of person if we have to eat
  • 00:10:35.000 --> 00:10:38.090
  • Mcdonald's and we have to do this kind of thing,
  • 00:10:39.070 --> 00:10:41.040
  • Brelyn will do it with me.
  • 00:10:41.040 --> 00:10:42.140
  • She'll hold me up, she'll lift me up,
  • 00:10:42.140 --> 00:10:44.020
  • and that's one thing I really love about her.
  • 00:10:44.020 --> 00:10:45.240
  • (audience applauds)
  • 00:10:45.240 --> 00:10:48.110
  • She's spoiled though. - [Brelyn] But that's me.
  • 00:10:49.240 --> 00:10:51.080
  • - [Tim] She love attention, but it's the good attention.
  • 00:10:51.080 --> 00:10:53.030
  • I mean the good spoiled.
  • 00:10:53.150 --> 00:10:54.270
  • - They both similar in that regard cause Britney
  • 00:10:54.270 --> 00:10:57.210
  • is really kind of the exact same.
  • 00:10:57.210 --> 00:11:00.020
  • Cause coming into it, I looked at.
  • 00:11:00.020 --> 00:11:02.230
  • I'll never forget when I got to the house.
  • 00:11:02.230 --> 00:11:04.020
  • I was sitting there like, "Slim."
  • 00:11:04.020 --> 00:11:05.270
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:11:05.270 --> 00:11:08.080
  • I said, "You live here?!"
  • 00:11:11.080 --> 00:11:12.220
  • I had never seen a house that big in real life.
  • 00:11:14.160 --> 00:11:18.020
  • I mean gates and everything.
  • 00:11:21.250 --> 00:11:23.010
  • I was like oh this is a movie.
  • 00:11:23.010 --> 00:11:25.110
  • And so you know I met her I'm like God
  • 00:11:26.170 --> 00:11:28.120
  • I don't come from this, you know what I'm saying?
  • 00:11:28.120 --> 00:11:31.060
  • And so I was intimidated.
  • 00:11:31.060 --> 00:11:33.210
  • But Britney, you guys did a very very good job
  • 00:11:34.000 --> 00:11:37.030
  • in raising the both of them. - [Pastor] That was her mother.
  • 00:11:37.030 --> 00:11:39.240
  • - [Kevin] I mean spoiled but they just know
  • 00:11:39.240 --> 00:11:44.050
  • what they are supposed to have.
  • 00:11:44.050 --> 00:11:47.040
  • And they don't accept anything less,
  • 00:11:47.040 --> 00:11:49.000
  • but they ride with you.
  • 00:11:49.000 --> 00:11:51.070
  • You know?
  • 00:11:52.010 --> 00:11:52.290
  • It's like the ride or die chick.
  • 00:11:52.290 --> 00:11:54.110
  • It's like Tim said, we know where we going in life
  • 00:11:55.160 --> 00:11:57.160
  • and however we have to get there together--
  • 00:11:57.160 --> 00:11:59.250
  • - That's what I'm talking about.
  • 00:11:59.250 --> 00:12:01.050
  • However you gotta get to where God
  • 00:12:01.050 --> 00:12:04.170
  • has called you to get together.
  • 00:12:04.170 --> 00:12:07.040
  • You can do it!
  • 00:12:07.040 --> 00:12:10.170
  • You can get to where.
  • 00:12:10.220 --> 00:12:12.030
  • Ooh, turn to the girl you with
  • 00:12:12.030 --> 00:12:14.080
  • and say baby we going places together
  • 00:12:14.080 --> 00:12:16.100
  • We going places.
  • 00:12:16.100 --> 00:12:17.260
  • Come on tell em!
  • 00:12:18.080 --> 00:12:19.050
  • And where you gotta get to,
  • 00:12:19.070 --> 00:12:22.170
  • you can get to together.
  • 00:12:22.220 --> 00:12:24.160
  • Come on turn to her and tell her.
  • 00:12:24.160 --> 00:12:26.270
  • Call her by name.
  • 00:12:26.270 --> 00:12:28.030
  • It's DeeDee and I against the world.
  • 00:12:28.030 --> 00:12:30.040
  • Go ahead.
  • 00:12:30.040 --> 00:12:31.090
  • (audience responds)
  • 00:12:31.090 --> 00:12:33.050
  • That's good stuff Kevin.
  • 00:12:34.210 --> 00:12:36.070
  • - [Kevin] And I know it's just a little bit off subject,
  • 00:12:37.160 --> 00:12:38.270
  • that's not what you guys asked of us
  • 00:12:38.270 --> 00:12:40.170
  • but I just had to piggyback off of that.
  • 00:12:40.170 --> 00:12:43.000
  • Because that is in my estimation great parenthood
  • 00:12:43.000 --> 00:12:47.190
  • and great raising of children.
  • 00:12:47.190 --> 00:12:49.030
  • And watching you, this may be the most important thing
  • 00:12:49.030 --> 00:12:53.020
  • and it's not necessarily marriage related.
  • 00:12:53.020 --> 00:12:55.160
  • I watched how you have raised your children
  • 00:12:56.140 --> 00:12:59.040
  • and I want to emulate that.
  • 00:12:59.250 --> 00:13:02.030
  • I want my daughters to look at a man and say
  • 00:13:02.110 --> 00:13:06.100
  • "You want to become better than that."
  • 00:13:06.100 --> 00:13:07.260
  • "You gonna have to try better than that.
  • 00:13:09.010 --> 00:13:10.250
  • "Cause everything you're trying to give me
  • 00:13:11.050 --> 00:13:12.170
  • "my daddy has done that for me.
  • 00:13:12.170 --> 00:13:14.170
  • "My daddy gives that to me.
  • 00:13:15.140 --> 00:13:17.090
  • "You can't throw this artificial love at me.
  • 00:13:17.270 --> 00:13:20.100
  • "You can't throw this materialistic love at me.
  • 00:13:20.120 --> 00:13:23.010
  • "It does not do anything for me because I am fulfilled
  • 00:13:23.010 --> 00:13:26.080
  • "and I love my daddy at home."
  • 00:13:26.080 --> 00:13:28.100
  • So it's gonna have to be genuine when you step to me
  • 00:13:28.100 --> 00:13:31.000
  • and that's what you have here with them.
  • 00:13:31.000 --> 00:13:34.200
  • And so that is priceless in my estimation.
  • 00:13:34.200 --> 00:13:37.270
  • So thank you for that.
  • 00:13:37.270 --> 00:13:40.090
  • (audience applauds)
  • 00:13:41.090 --> 00:13:43.130
  • - [Pastor] Come on Brit.
  • 00:13:43.130 --> 00:13:44.180
  • You love him don't you.
  • 00:13:46.070 --> 00:13:47.210
  • I love him, you love him?
  • 00:13:48.220 --> 00:13:51.110
  • You don't love. - [DeeDee] You don't love God.
  • 00:13:51.110 --> 00:13:53.190
  • - Let's see, okay the biggest thing that I have learned
  • 00:13:57.200 --> 00:14:01.120
  • is at the end of the day we fight
  • 00:14:02.090 --> 00:14:05.200
  • for each other, we fight for, - [Pastor] I love it, I love it.
  • 00:14:06.260 --> 00:14:10.010
  • - [Brit] you know our happiness,
  • 00:14:10.010 --> 00:14:11.080
  • we fight for our togetherness, we fight.
  • 00:14:11.080 --> 00:14:14.080
  • - And so it's like. - [Pastor] We fight, we fight.
  • 00:14:14.220 --> 00:14:16.080
  • - [Pastor] Come on turn to the person you're here with.
  • 00:14:16.080 --> 00:14:18.150
  • Say we fight together.
  • 00:14:18.150 --> 00:14:20.050
  • - [Audience] We fight together.
  • 00:14:20.050 --> 00:14:21.050
  • - Not against one another.
  • 00:14:21.050 --> 00:14:22.160
  • - [Audience] Not against one another.
  • 00:14:22.160 --> 00:14:23.210
  • - But together.
  • 00:14:23.210 --> 00:14:24.190
  • - [Audience] But together.
  • 00:14:24.190 --> 00:14:25.170
  • - We fight, we fight, we fight.
  • 00:14:25.170 --> 00:14:27.180
  • Fight the good fight of faith.
  • 00:14:27.180 --> 00:14:29.290
  • - Yeah, cause it's like we've been through,
  • 00:14:31.040 --> 00:14:34.020
  • we've been through a lot of different things.
  • 00:14:35.090 --> 00:14:37.190
  • And it's almost kinda like how Tim said,
  • 00:14:37.190 --> 00:14:41.060
  • your parents teach you a certain way
  • 00:14:41.130 --> 00:14:44.030
  • and then when you're gone they're not telling
  • 00:14:44.030 --> 00:14:46.060
  • you what to do but it's like they are
  • 00:14:46.060 --> 00:14:47.240
  • telling you what to do.
  • 00:14:47.240 --> 00:14:49.070
  • I think you guys really don't have to say much anymore
  • 00:14:49.070 --> 00:14:52.040
  • because you weigh so heavy in our lives
  • 00:14:52.040 --> 00:14:55.050
  • and then even listening to you in here.
  • 00:14:55.050 --> 00:14:57.270
  • It's not a lot that we have to share because
  • 00:14:58.060 --> 00:15:01.050
  • you've already taught us so it's already in us.
  • 00:15:01.160 --> 00:15:03.160
  • So we have fought through different things.

  • flow a lot better.
  • 00:15:20.130 --> 00:15:22.160

  • - [Audience] Hey can I let you in on something?
  • 00:17:44.190 --> 00:17:46.210
  • - Somebody is watching us.
  • 00:17:46.210 --> 00:17:51.210
  • Brelyn?
  • 00:17:55.230 --> 00:17:57.000
  • - Well mines kind of a piggyback off of Britney
  • 00:17:57.140 --> 00:18:00.200
  • was you all fight for each other,
  • 00:18:00.200 --> 00:18:02.220
  • you fight for your relationship,
  • 00:18:02.220 --> 00:18:04.280
  • but more so if you did get in an argument
  • 00:18:05.040 --> 00:18:07.260
  • you wouldn't be mad for a long time.
  • 00:18:07.260 --> 00:18:10.130
  • Even if you wanted to be mad, mommy will come over to you
  • 00:18:10.130 --> 00:18:13.170
  • or you would go over to mommy.
  • 00:18:13.170 --> 00:18:15.190
  • You know and be like--
  • 00:18:15.190 --> 00:18:16.240
  • - [Pastor] I would go over to her?
  • 00:18:16.240 --> 00:18:17.100
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:18:17.100 --> 00:18:18.070
  • - [Pastor] In most cases.
  • 00:18:18.070 --> 00:18:18.270
  • - Vice versa.
  • 00:18:19.100 --> 00:18:21.050
  • You know but not to really help.
  • 00:18:21.200 --> 00:18:23.120
  • Because I can be hard headed.
  • 00:18:23.120 --> 00:18:24.200
  • Like "Oh you don't wanna talk to me okay, cool."
  • 00:18:24.200 --> 00:18:27.210
  • I talk to somebody else for a minute.
  • 00:18:28.290 --> 00:18:30.200
  • But I had to really, and I'm still learning.
  • 00:18:30.260 --> 00:18:33.240
  • But I had to really come out of that
  • 00:18:33.240 --> 00:18:36.010
  • and to really communicate about
  • 00:18:36.010 --> 00:18:38.220
  • you know, what the problem was and to not be mad.
  • 00:18:38.220 --> 00:18:40.250
  • Cause I like to be happy.
  • 00:18:40.250 --> 00:18:41.250
  • I don't like to be mad.
  • 00:18:41.250 --> 00:18:44.020
  • So I've learned to not really hold things
  • 00:18:44.020 --> 00:18:46.150
  • until next week or hold things until the next day.
  • 00:18:46.200 --> 00:18:50.100
  • Because life is not promised.
  • 00:18:50.100 --> 00:18:51.180
  • And even here recently with the attack
  • 00:18:51.180 --> 00:18:53.230
  • we've experienced as a family.
  • 00:18:53.230 --> 00:18:56.100
  • Lord he loves her and she loves him.
  • 00:18:59.270 --> 00:19:03.130
  • But we've been going outside the other street
  • 00:19:03.130 --> 00:19:05.290
  • to the mailbox and he like "Baby, where you at?
  • 00:19:05.290 --> 00:19:09.140
  • "When you coming home?"
  • 00:19:09.180 --> 00:19:10.290
  • Like that, she just outside, she just outside.
  • 00:19:10.290 --> 00:19:14.040
  • Give her a break.
  • 00:19:14.040 --> 00:19:15.080
  • You know, and still even the way.
  • 00:19:15.080 --> 00:19:18.060
  • Number two is even the way she serves him
  • 00:19:18.180 --> 00:19:20.220
  • and how even if she may not feel like it
  • 00:19:20.220 --> 00:19:23.160
  • she'll still serve.
  • 00:19:23.160 --> 00:19:25.030
  • I mean like, "Give me some popcorn.
  • 00:19:25.220 --> 00:19:30.050
  • "Can you get the seasoning to go to the popcorn?
  • 00:19:30.180 --> 00:19:32.280
  • "Can you cut my salad?
  • 00:19:33.160 --> 00:19:34.230
  • "Ooh baby I think I want a turkey sandwich."
  • 00:19:34.230 --> 00:19:37.040
  • And she "Okay, cool.
  • 00:19:37.210 --> 00:19:39.090
  • "You really want that, okay."
  • 00:19:39.090 --> 00:19:40.240
  • And she'll go and do it.
  • 00:19:40.240 --> 00:19:42.040
  • And even if she doesn't feel like it,
  • 00:19:42.040 --> 00:19:43.250
  • she'll still serve him and still honor him.
  • 00:19:43.250 --> 00:19:46.000
  • It's funny, real quick.
  • 00:19:46.000 --> 00:19:47.030
  • (Brelyn laughs)
  • 00:19:47.030 --> 00:19:48.260
  • (Britney mumbles)
  • 00:19:48.260 --> 00:19:50.080
  • What.
  • 00:19:50.080 --> 00:19:51.120
  • Oh no, no, no, I wasn't gonna say it.
  • 00:19:52.050 --> 00:19:53.250
  • I can't say that.
  • 00:19:53.250 --> 00:19:55.090
  • But Sunday he was at the house and he wanted some crabs.
  • 00:19:55.090 --> 00:19:58.280
  • - [Pastor] Who?
  • 00:19:58.280 --> 00:19:59.230
  • - Tim.
  • 00:19:59.230 --> 00:20:00.130
  • - [Pastor] Oh.
  • 00:20:00.130 --> 00:20:01.210
  • - And he said "Hey, can you get me some crabs?"
  • 00:20:01.210 --> 00:20:03.250
  • So I said "Okay cool."
  • 00:20:03.250 --> 00:20:04.250
  • So I pulled the bag out.
  • 00:20:04.250 --> 00:20:06.100
  • He said "Can you make that sauce like your mother?"
  • 00:20:06.100 --> 00:20:09.180
  • I'm like ugh.
  • 00:20:10.090 --> 00:20:11.140
  • "Can you get me something to drink?
  • 00:20:11.250 --> 00:20:13.220
  • "Can you get me a bag?
  • 00:20:14.270 --> 00:20:16.180
  • "I need a napkin.
  • 00:20:17.030 --> 00:20:18.160
  • "Can you get me some more ice?
  • 00:20:18.160 --> 00:20:20.060
  • "And I said "Hey look, it's too much.
  • 00:20:20.060 --> 00:20:22.100
  • "I'm not DeeDee yet, I'm not DeeDee yet.
  • 00:20:22.100 --> 00:20:25.030
  • "Okay, calm down.
  • 00:20:25.190 --> 00:20:27.150
  • "Stop asking."
  • 00:20:27.150 --> 00:20:28.140
  • - I'm just going by what I see.
  • 00:20:28.140 --> 00:20:29.160
  • I'm just going by what I see.
  • 00:20:29.160 --> 00:20:30.220
  • - Stop it!
  • 00:20:30.220 --> 00:20:32.080
  • Stop calling my name!
  • 00:20:32.080 --> 00:20:34.100
  • (Brelyn laughs)
  • 00:20:34.100 --> 00:20:36.070
  • So I'm learning to serve with a loving heart
  • 00:20:36.070 --> 00:20:40.140
  • and a giving heart.
  • 00:20:40.140 --> 00:20:41.190
  • Because I do honor him.
  • 00:20:41.190 --> 00:20:43.060
  • And I'm trying to follow my mother,
  • 00:20:43.060 --> 00:20:44.280
  • but it's so hard.
  • 00:20:44.280 --> 00:20:46.210
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:20:46.210 --> 00:20:48.240
  • - [Pastor] Anything Tim?
  • 00:20:54.160 --> 00:20:55.190
  • - Yeah, I'll be real brief.
  • 00:20:55.190 --> 00:20:57.020
  • Mine's is more from a natural standpoint.
  • 00:20:57.020 --> 00:20:59.220
  • I learned a lot of the things but I wanted to say something
  • 00:21:00.240 --> 00:21:04.010
  • that you guys hadn't said.
  • 00:21:04.010 --> 00:21:05.150
  • The importance of as a unit, setting goals in life.
  • 00:21:05.280 --> 00:21:09.230
  • And together going about obtaining those goals.
  • 00:21:09.230 --> 00:21:13.170
  • I was able to see my mother since my birth
  • 00:21:13.280 --> 00:21:18.170
  • not before, get her Bachelor's, get her Master's,
  • 00:21:18.170 --> 00:21:22.100
  • and do all this accounting work
  • 00:21:22.100 --> 00:21:24.050
  • and become a VP of a company.
  • 00:21:24.050 --> 00:21:25.250
  • Then my dad travel every weekend and do all these things.
  • 00:21:25.250 --> 00:21:29.030
  • And they both are individuals within their relationship
  • 00:21:29.030 --> 00:21:32.100
  • and I used to walk in the bedroom at night
  • 00:21:32.100 --> 00:21:34.240
  • and they be planning for the future.
  • 00:21:34.240 --> 00:21:36.160
  • We need to do this, we need to do this,
  • 00:21:36.160 --> 00:21:38.020
  • and we need to do this.
  • 00:21:38.020 --> 00:21:39.140
  • What's the next step to reach their goals naturally?
  • 00:21:39.140 --> 00:21:42.160
  • They got together and they went out and implemented
  • 00:21:42.260 --> 00:21:46.230
  • what they both decided to do together.
  • 00:21:46.230 --> 00:21:49.030
  • And that is my plan with Brelyn.
  • 00:21:49.030 --> 00:21:51.030
  • We're gonna go out and be ambitious
  • 00:21:51.030 --> 00:21:52.260
  • and take over the world.
  • 00:21:52.260 --> 00:21:53.270
  • (audience applauds)
  • 00:21:53.270 --> 00:21:56.240

  • Yes sir.
  • 00:22:34.260 --> 00:22:36.020
  • - [Male] Good evening sir, this is more
  • 00:22:37.170 --> 00:22:39.060
  • of a comment than a question.
  • 00:22:39.060 --> 00:22:40.150
  • You addressed something about the blended family
  • 00:22:40.150 --> 00:22:42.100
  • and it's been like on me since you said it.
  • 00:22:42.100 --> 00:22:44.170
  • - [Pastor] Okay.
  • 00:22:44.170 --> 00:22:45.240
  • - [Male] I married a woman with four kids.
  • 00:22:45.260 --> 00:22:47.240
  • - [Pastor] With four kids?
  • 00:22:48.010 --> 00:22:49.160
  • - Right, before me there was four kids and stuff and stuff.
  • 00:22:49.160 --> 00:22:52.210
  • And I got specific instructions
  • 00:22:52.210 --> 00:22:54.260
  • on what to do and when to do it.
  • 00:22:54.260 --> 00:22:57.000
  • And it has made us like the "Brady Bunch" kinda sorta.
  • 00:22:57.060 --> 00:23:01.150
  • Like it's real cool, freaky, whatever.
  • 00:23:01.150 --> 00:23:04.110
  • Like I was overseas during a portion of our courtship.
  • 00:23:04.110 --> 00:23:08.230
  • - [Pastor] Yeah.
  • 00:23:08.230 --> 00:23:09.170
  • - And I would Skype her,
  • 00:23:09.170 --> 00:23:11.020
  • but I couldn't Skype her without talking to them.
  • 00:23:11.020 --> 00:23:14.000
  • So I insisted on "Okay cool, well let me talk to them.
  • 00:23:14.000 --> 00:23:17.100
  • "Let me do this."
  • 00:23:17.130 --> 00:23:18.210
  • And one of the kids is a teacher like by nature.
  • 00:23:18.210 --> 00:23:22.090
  • That's her thing, that's what she does.
  • 00:23:22.090 --> 00:23:24.110
  • So this girl would read me like "The Three Little Pigs."
  • 00:23:24.190 --> 00:23:26.280
  • And it's 2 o'clock in the morning overseas.
  • 00:23:26.280 --> 00:23:29.250
  • Sandstorms and all the rest of this good stuff.
  • 00:23:29.250 --> 00:23:31.200
  • I'm on Skype trying not to fall asleep.
  • 00:23:31.200 --> 00:23:34.050
  • Paying attention knowing that I gotta get up
  • 00:23:34.050 --> 00:23:36.080
  • at 6 o'clock in the morning.
  • 00:23:36.080 --> 00:23:37.210
  • But we doing this and she would ask me questions,
  • 00:23:37.280 --> 00:23:40.030
  • "Well which house didn't get blown down?"
  • 00:23:40.030 --> 00:23:42.270
  • And I would have to do it because--
  • 00:23:42.270 --> 00:23:45.080
  • - [Pastor] So that was a part of your strategy
  • 00:23:45.080 --> 00:23:47.000
  • and getting to know. - [Male] Yes sir.
  • 00:23:47.000 --> 00:23:48.140
  • - [Male] Because Holy Spirit said that I am the gate.
  • 00:23:48.140 --> 00:23:52.040
  • And if they can receive me not knowing me
  • 00:23:52.230 --> 00:23:57.030
  • then they will be able to receive them
  • 00:23:57.030 --> 00:23:59.110
  • not knowing them initially.
  • 00:23:59.110 --> 00:24:02.030
  • So if I come into their life
  • 00:24:02.030 --> 00:24:04.000
  • and I'm someone that's different,
  • 00:24:04.000 --> 00:24:05.210
  • but I am a representative of God.
  • 00:24:05.210 --> 00:24:07.290
  • If I misrepresent Him then it'll be more difficult
  • 00:24:07.290 --> 00:24:11.150
  • for them to receive Him
  • 00:24:11.150 --> 00:24:13.060
  • because they didn't know Him at first either.
  • 00:24:13.060 --> 00:24:15.080
  • So I was--
  • 00:24:16.070 --> 00:24:17.170
  • - Okay, I believe I understood all of that.
  • 00:24:17.170 --> 00:24:19.090
  • - [DeeDee] Mmm hmm, I got that.
  • 00:24:19.090 --> 00:24:20.110
