This Thanksgiving holiday, Bishop T.D. Jakes remembers the dying words of his mother in a touching op-ed for FoxNews published Tuesday. The 600-word piece opens with the death of his mother, Odith Jakes, whom the pastor "cradles" in his arms as she draws her final breaths. But, as mothers often use every chance they can to give their children helpful advice, she spends her last moments admonishing Jakes and his brother and sister to "stick together."
And that message has indeed stuck with Jakes throughout the years, as he writes in the op-ed, "That gentle reproof has always underscored my intuitive understanding of family."
Since Jakes' father, Ernest Jakes, Sr., had already passed, his mother's death meant the pastor and his siblings had become orphans. In the touching tribute, Jakes expresses his thankfulness for family as he writes, "I am thankful for the gift of family that pays itself forward with each generation. As I have freely received love, I am able to give freely." more >>
Members of a New York church were surprised to find a newborn baby placed in the congregation's nativity scene.
The baby was found in the manger scene display at the appropriately named Holy Child Jesus Church in Richmond Hill in Queens. A full-term newborn, according to the New York Daily News, was found with the umbilical cord still attached.
Grammy-nominated artist Jeremy Camp has made a name for himself in the Christian music scene with his infectious worship songs and contemporary anthems, but the 37-year-old might have to move over and make way for his young daughters who have now released their first single.
Camp recently received his 38th No. 1 radio single across all radio formats with "Same Power," but the father of 3 may have to hand over his musical crown because his daughters Bella (11) and Aerie (9) have released their debut single. The tune is a Christmas song named "Behold." It was penned by a then 10-year-old Bella.
In a very charming video posted on Vimeo, the audience is given an inside look into the recording of the song in which Camp and his entire family partake in. With Bella and Aerie singing lead, Camp and his wife, Adrienne, are heard and seen singing background vocals. Camp's youngest son Egan was not excluded in the family affair as he had the honor of ending the song by singing the chorus solo. more >>
You may remember her as "Tootie" from the hit '80s sitcom "The Facts of Life" or "Regine" from the '90s show about single life in the fast lane, "Living Single." But since then, aside from behind the scenes work as a television show director and some occasional bit parts and being in the "Vagina Monologues," Kim Fields has largely remained out of the spotlight. Until now.
The actress has joined the season 8 cast of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Atlanta." In an episode that airs Sunday, Fields gets personal with the sobering admission "I've lost myself." Audiences might admit that, without the actress resurfacing to appear on the show, they had pretty much lost her too.
Fields' confession just might explain why an actress of her background and pedigree, known for her clean, no-drama image, would involve herself with a franchise celebrated for its gossiping, cat fighting, and back-stabbing personalities. Fields seems to be the antithesis of what "Housewives" is all about. more >>
