4:20 – The Color of Rain: How Two Families Found Faith, Hope, and Love in the Midst of Tragedy
This real-life Brady Bunch story is about what it means to endure the unthinkable---and still open one's heart to what's next. When two childhood friends die of cancer six weeks apart, the shared experience of loss brings their grieving spouses together. After months of late-night phone calls, family dinners, and countless dreams and tears, this unlikely pair builds a trust, a love, and a shared life. Along the way, they discovered that God can restore the darkest circumstances---and even from death, He can bring new life. Michael and Gina Spehn’s gripping story of 'growing new hearts' will inspire us not only to survive loss but also to receive the new courage, faith, and identity that God gives in the midst of tragedy.
5:00 – Extreme Makeover: Women Transformed By Christ And Not Conformed To The Culture
Teresa Tomeo knows from experience that the self-image of American women is being distorted by pop culture. With its emphasis on youth, physical beauty, and sexuality, the secular media is encouraging women--and girls--to see themselves primarily as sex objects. Teresa has pulled together the latest research on social behavior and trends in order to demonstrate that women are harming themselves and their chances for true happiness by adopting the thoroughly modern, sexually liberated lifestyle portrayed in magazines and movies. Teresa joins us to show us that women can shed the toxic messages that objectify and enslave them and embrace the truth about being a beloved daughter of God.
