  • Today, on Living by Faith...
  • 00:02:00.060 --> 00:02:00.270
  • - All right, today's broadcast
  • 00:02:01.160 --> 00:02:03.250
  • is just exciting to me personally.
  • 00:02:03.250 --> 00:02:06.230
  • It's exciting for me--
  • 00:02:06.230 --> 00:02:07.290
  • - For both of us.
  • 00:02:07.290 --> 00:02:08.280

  • and let you know who our special guest are.
  • 00:02:14.190 --> 00:02:17.130
  • - Glory to God, we're gonna bring up Minister Brelin
  • 00:02:27.050 --> 00:02:29.210
  • And Minister Tim, we want this union
  • 00:02:29.210 --> 00:02:32.150
  • to be exulted and lifted up, why?
  • 00:02:32.150 --> 00:02:35.180
  • Because they did it right, they did it
  • 00:02:35.180 --> 00:02:38.050
  • according to the word of God, and
  • 00:02:38.050 --> 00:02:40.070
  • we want to command the attention of the world.
  • 00:02:40.070 --> 00:02:44.020
  • - Our phones blew up! - Boop boop boop boop
  • 00:02:48.060 --> 00:02:50.190
  • And we just looked at each other.
  • 00:02:50.190 --> 00:02:52.080
  • - We want youth from all over to see the blessing of God
  • 00:02:52.080 --> 00:02:55.220
  • on their lives and how God has to honor them
  • 00:02:55.220 --> 00:02:58.190
  • as they've honored Him, we want to pray for the ministry
  • 00:02:58.190 --> 00:03:03.160
  • that's on their life, that God will lift it up
  • 00:03:03.160 --> 00:03:07.000
  • as a trophy in his hand to show this is what I'll do
  • 00:03:07.000 --> 00:03:11.190
  • when you do it right, we decree and declare it
  • 00:03:11.190 --> 00:03:16.030
  • out of their bellies shall flow rivers
  • 00:03:16.030 --> 00:03:19.060
  • of life giving water, to every stale and stagnated
  • 00:03:20.270 --> 00:03:24.260
  • place that they'll go into when they open their mouth
  • 00:03:24.260 --> 00:03:27.250
  • to minister, the refreshing of the Lord shall fall afresh
  • 00:03:27.250 --> 00:03:31.190
  • on all that will hear their ministry.
  • 00:03:31.190 --> 00:03:35.080
  • And just like Saul said for David, I decree and declare
  • 00:03:35.080 --> 00:03:38.110
  • that invitations are coming and they will come
  • 00:03:38.110 --> 00:03:42.060
  • and represent the sound of the Lord.
  • 00:03:46.280 --> 00:03:49.130
  • And we're thinking they shall be received and
  • 00:03:49.130 --> 00:03:51.270
  • they shall be heard and bondage shall be destroyed
  • 00:03:51.270 --> 00:03:56.020
  • and the standard of the Lord shall be raised up
  • 00:03:57.080 --> 00:04:00.050
  • in the earth like never before.
  • 00:04:00.050 --> 00:04:02.040
  • If you agree with this, say Amen. Hallelujah, glory be.
  • 00:04:02.040 --> 00:04:06.090
  • And without further ado, hashtag.
  • 00:04:12.120 --> 00:04:16.030
  • - [Both] Meet the Bowman's.
  • 00:04:16.030 --> 00:04:18.160
  • - [DeeDee and Bri] Hey. - [Mike] Guys.
  • 00:04:18.160 --> 00:04:21.000
  • - [Mike] What's happening?
  • 00:04:21.000 --> 00:04:22.180
  • Mr. and Mrs. Bowman.
  • 00:04:22.180 --> 00:04:24.230
  • - Yes.
  • 00:04:24.230 --> 00:04:26.000
  • - That's something, I'm first of all
  • 00:04:26.000 --> 00:04:27.010
  • getting adjusted to.
  • 00:04:27.010 --> 00:04:28.030
  • Are you adjusting to?
  • 00:04:28.030 --> 00:04:29.090
  • - I am too.
  • 00:04:29.090 --> 00:04:30.090
  • - You are, 'cause I am too.
  • 00:04:30.090 --> 00:04:32.230
  • I am too, but I'm so excited so.
  • 00:04:32.230 --> 00:04:35.090
  • - This story is an exciting story.
  • 00:04:35.090 --> 00:04:37.240
  • I'm really.
  • 00:04:37.240 --> 00:04:41.210
  • It's a surreal kind of deal you know,
  • 00:04:42.220 --> 00:04:46.110
  • at age 13 you decide
  • 00:04:46.110 --> 00:04:50.160
  • to take me up on something
  • 00:04:51.150 --> 00:04:54.260
  • that I've proposed and presented to you
  • 00:04:54.260 --> 00:04:57.100
  • as I've done, of course,
  • 00:04:57.100 --> 00:04:59.030
  • with your sister.
  • 00:04:59.030 --> 00:05:01.060
  • You watched that whole episode.
  • 00:05:01.060 --> 00:05:03.080
  • Then you had an opportunity to watch her life.
  • 00:05:04.100 --> 00:05:07.050
  • Now you're 13,
  • 00:05:08.090 --> 00:05:10.050
  • and you signed the covenant commitment.
  • 00:05:10.050 --> 00:05:14.060
  • - Right.
  • 00:05:14.060 --> 00:05:15.100
  • - What are your thoughts like back then?
  • 00:05:15.100 --> 00:05:17.190
  • Let's try to go back.
  • 00:05:17.190 --> 00:05:19.030
  • - Well it's funny that you ask
  • 00:05:19.030 --> 00:05:20.250
  • because I found a paper of a speech
  • 00:05:20.250 --> 00:05:23.180
  • that I wrote before I actually signed the paper
  • 00:05:23.180 --> 00:05:26.040
  • at my 13th birthday party.
  • 00:05:26.040 --> 00:05:28.070
  • I said, "I'm not just doing this out of formality
  • 00:05:28.070 --> 00:05:31.010
  • "or just because I saw it."
  • 00:05:31.010 --> 00:05:33.080
  • But because this is a decision
  • 00:05:33.080 --> 00:05:35.040
  • that I wanted to make for my own self.
  • 00:05:35.040 --> 00:05:37.100
  • - Wait a minute, make sure I'm clear.
  • 00:05:37.100 --> 00:05:38.260
  • You wrote yourself a letter?
  • 00:05:38.260 --> 00:05:40.200
  • - No, I was making a speech at the covenant ceremony.
  • 00:05:40.200 --> 00:05:43.270
  • - Oh you went back to review.
  • 00:05:43.270 --> 00:05:45.220
  • - Right I went back over it.
  • 00:05:45.220 --> 00:05:46.290
  • - The video footage.
  • 00:05:46.290 --> 00:05:47.240
  • I haven't seen that.
  • 00:05:47.240 --> 00:05:49.110
  • - Yeah, it was a paper we kept.
  • 00:05:49.110 --> 00:05:51.040
  • - Yeah, I keep all of those kind of papers.
  • 00:05:51.040 --> 00:05:53.130
  • I'm real sentimental.
  • 00:05:53.130 --> 00:05:55.060
  • - So to see that now when I'm married
  • 00:05:55.060 --> 00:05:58.240
  • to go back to 13 and say,
  • 00:05:58.240 --> 00:06:00.100
  • "Okay, yeah, it was something that was
  • 00:06:00.100 --> 00:06:02.020
  • "really in my heart that I wanted to do."
  • 00:06:02.020 --> 00:06:04.030
  • And not just because my sister did it.
  • 00:06:04.030 --> 00:06:05.240
  • Or because my father said do it,
  • 00:06:05.240 --> 00:06:07.150
  • but because something I knew that God commanded us to do.
  • 00:06:07.150 --> 00:06:11.010
  • - Well certainly your sister helped you.
  • 00:06:11.010 --> 00:06:12.240
  • - Absolutely, absolutely.
  • 00:06:12.240 --> 00:06:14.110
  • - In wanting to see the same thing.
  • 00:06:14.110 --> 00:06:17.000
  • First of all, let's back up.
  • 00:06:17.000 --> 00:06:19.060
  • Let's back up.
  • 00:06:19.060 --> 00:06:20.230
  • How did you feel at her wedding day
  • 00:06:20.230 --> 00:06:24.160
  • when she presented that?
  • 00:06:24.160 --> 00:06:26.270
  • 'Cause at that particular time
  • 00:06:26.270 --> 00:06:29.030
  • you're much further along in the process,
  • 00:06:29.030 --> 00:06:31.180
  • you've made the commitment for a few years now.
  • 00:06:31.180 --> 00:06:34.230
  • She hands a certificate to me.
  • 00:06:34.230 --> 00:06:37.070
  • That doesn't go and do anything near
  • 00:06:37.070 --> 00:06:40.080
  • the response you all--
  • 00:06:40.080 --> 00:06:42.060
  • - Well it did for me.
  • 00:06:42.060 --> 00:06:43.170
  • - Ha ya ya ya ya ya ya.
  • 00:06:43.170 --> 00:06:45.100
  • - It did for me, it gave me a second wind.
  • 00:06:45.100 --> 00:06:48.130
  • You know, in the sense of really say,
  • 00:06:48.130 --> 00:06:50.140
  • okay if she did it, she made it to the finish line,
  • 00:06:50.140 --> 00:06:52.250
  • there's no way I cannot do it.
  • 00:06:52.250 --> 00:06:55.280
  • So for me it went viral in my life.
  • 00:06:55.280 --> 00:06:59.050
  • You know, so that's - [DeeDee] That's good.
  • 00:06:59.050 --> 00:07:00.240
  • what I love the most about it. - [Mike] Chaka Khan.
  • 00:07:00.240 --> 00:07:02.080
  • - [Bre] Because now my life, - [Mike] My, my, my, my
  • 00:07:02.080 --> 00:07:03.170
  • can be an example - [Mike] that's good.
  • 00:07:03.170 --> 00:07:05.070
  • - [Bre] just as hers was to me.
  • 00:07:05.070 --> 00:07:07.020
  • - Yeah, and so if we had more
  • 00:07:07.020 --> 00:07:10.040
  • big sisters participating in that capacity.
  • 00:07:10.040 --> 00:07:14.120
  • Imagine the impact.
  • 00:07:14.120 --> 00:07:16.160
  • You compare that with something
  • 00:07:16.160 --> 00:07:19.020
  • so magnificent and massive.
  • 00:07:19.020 --> 00:07:22.190
  • It went viral in your spirit.
  • 00:07:22.190 --> 00:07:25.110
  • The same capacity that it took on
  • 00:07:25.110 --> 00:07:28.220
  • in the earth, it happened in your spirit.
  • 00:07:28.220 --> 00:07:32.250
  • - [Bre] Absolutely.
  • 00:07:32.250 --> 00:07:34.000
  • - Now well your husband is here.
  • 00:07:34.000 --> 00:07:36.050
  • You know, we can't prove that, you understand?
  • 00:07:36.050 --> 00:07:40.030
  • We're gonna put him on the Maury show
  • 00:07:40.030 --> 00:07:42.210
  • and hook him up to a lie detector or something.
  • 00:07:42.210 --> 00:07:46.040
  • Ladies and gentlemen, Tim Bowman.
  • 00:07:46.040 --> 00:07:48.160
  • Tim Bowman Junior. - [Tim] Junior.
  • 00:07:49.170 --> 00:07:51.220
  • - I love your family.
  • 00:07:51.220 --> 00:07:54.160
  • I love you.
  • 00:07:54.160 --> 00:07:56.050
  • I'm just grateful to God
  • 00:07:57.140 --> 00:07:59.010
  • about this whole thing.
  • 00:07:59.010 --> 00:08:01.020
  • This whole connection.
  • 00:08:01.020 --> 00:08:02.240
  • We, DeeDee and I,
  • 00:08:02.240 --> 00:08:05.060
  • since this girl was
  • 00:08:05.060 --> 00:08:07.270
  • two, three years old.
  • 00:08:08.240 --> 00:08:10.170
  • Put on our board, praying for her husband.
  • 00:08:10.170 --> 00:08:14.220
  • We had no idea,
  • 00:08:14.220 --> 00:08:16.180
  • that it would be a funny looking cat.
  • 00:08:17.170 --> 00:08:19.100
  • (everyone laughs)
  • 00:08:19.100 --> 00:08:20.260
  • - With so much swag.
  • 00:08:20.260 --> 00:08:21.290
  • - With so much swag.
  • 00:08:21.290 --> 00:08:23.180
  • So in the interim now,
  • 00:08:24.280 --> 00:08:26.130
  • you are making a personal
  • 00:08:26.130 --> 00:08:28.230
  • commitment yourself with God.
  • 00:08:28.230 --> 00:08:31.080
  • - Absolutely.
  • 00:08:31.080 --> 00:08:32.080
  • - Tell us about your story.
  • 00:08:32.080 --> 00:08:33.280
  • - Mines is a little less glamorous
  • 00:08:33.280 --> 00:08:36.070
  • than my beautiful wife's. - [Mike] Okay, alright.
  • 00:08:36.070 --> 00:08:37.280
  • - [Tim] But it is a commitment and a covenant nonetheless.
  • 00:08:37.280 --> 00:08:40.210
  • Basically, I didn't make one with my parents.
  • 00:08:40.210 --> 00:08:44.240
  • But what they instilled in me
  • 00:08:44.240 --> 00:08:47.170
  • much like what you guys instilled in her.
  • 00:08:47.170 --> 00:08:49.210
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:08:49.210 --> 00:08:50.190
  • - I decided to honor God.
  • 00:08:50.190 --> 00:08:52.100
  • And what the Bible tells us we should
  • 00:08:52.100 --> 00:08:54.080
  • do with our bodies prior to marriage.
  • 00:08:54.080 --> 00:08:56.180
  • - I mean,
  • 00:08:56.180 --> 00:08:57.150
  • how involved.
  • 00:08:57.150 --> 00:09:01.220
  • Of course you were raised in the church.
  • 00:09:03.040 --> 00:09:04.210
  • - Right, church kid.
  • 00:09:04.210 --> 00:09:05.240
  • - Church kid.
  • 00:09:05.240 --> 00:09:07.080
  • - People say I've been 60 years old since I've been 14.
  • 00:09:07.080 --> 00:09:09.200
  • And I have a very old soul.
  • 00:09:10.190 --> 00:09:12.070
  • - Yeah this is true.
  • 00:09:12.070 --> 00:09:13.050
  • - I love going to church.
  • 00:09:13.050 --> 00:09:15.170
  • We are the church.
  • 00:09:15.170 --> 00:09:16.250
  • - We are the church, we understand that.
  • 00:09:16.250 --> 00:09:18.070
  • - But you know,
  • 00:09:18.070 --> 00:09:19.200
  • just being with the people. - [DeeDee] Fellowship
  • 00:09:19.200 --> 00:09:20.180
  • - [DeeDee] and the worship.
  • 00:09:20.180 --> 00:09:21.160
  • - The whole church scene.
  • 00:09:21.160 --> 00:09:22.110
  • - Love it.
  • 00:09:22.110 --> 00:09:23.100
  • - And all this about.
  • 00:09:23.100 --> 00:09:24.190
  • We were in a church, not too long ago.
  • 00:09:24.190 --> 00:09:27.230
  • A week or so ago.
  • 00:09:27.230 --> 00:09:29.090
  • And the pastor said the same thing.
  • 00:09:29.090 --> 00:09:31.020
  • He said, "I just love church."
  • 00:09:31.020 --> 00:09:33.020
  • And she turned to me and said,
  • 00:09:33.020 --> 00:09:34.180
  • "That's what Tim was talking about right there."
  • 00:09:34.180 --> 00:09:37.060
  • - There's nothing like it.
  • 00:09:37.060 --> 00:09:38.160
  • - There's nothing like church.
  • 00:09:38.160 --> 00:09:39.260
  • But you're growing up.
  • 00:09:40.220 --> 00:09:42.110
  • And it's having the effect and the impact.
  • 00:09:42.110 --> 00:09:45.130
  • And you're saying, unlike most young men
  • 00:09:45.130 --> 00:09:48.240
  • who are even in church.
  • 00:09:48.240 --> 00:09:50.090
  • - Yeah, because it's not that common.
  • 00:09:50.090 --> 00:09:52.060
  • It should be.
  • 00:09:52.060 --> 00:09:53.200
  • - But at the same time
  • 00:09:53.200 --> 00:09:55.030
  • as we have prayed for her,
  • 00:09:55.030 --> 00:09:58.070
  • she has been praying the whole time.
  • 00:09:58.070 --> 00:10:01.030
  • God if I'm going to preserve myself.
  • 00:10:01.030 --> 00:10:05.010
  • - To save myself as they say.
  • 00:10:05.010 --> 00:10:07.020
  • - Right.
  • 00:10:07.020 --> 00:10:07.260
  • Why can't I believe you
  • 00:10:07.260 --> 00:10:12.040
  • for someone who's doing the same thing right now?
  • 00:10:12.040 --> 00:10:14.270
  • - Absolutely, and it felt so good.
  • 00:10:14.270 --> 00:10:16.240
  • 'Cause when me and Brelyn decided to date,
  • 00:10:16.240 --> 00:10:20.230
  • I had so much respect for her.
  • 00:10:20.230 --> 00:10:23.020
  • So when she told me that
  • 00:10:23.020 --> 00:10:25.230
  • it was so important for her to
  • 00:10:25.230 --> 00:10:28.250
  • be with somebody who had saved themselves.
  • 00:10:28.250 --> 00:10:31.060
  • To be able to stand in that situation
  • 00:10:31.060 --> 00:10:33.110
  • and in that moment,
  • 00:10:33.110 --> 00:10:34.270
  • and know that you've saved yourself,
  • 00:10:34.270 --> 00:10:37.070
  • it felt so good.
  • 00:10:37.070 --> 00:10:38.260
  • - Were you praying for the similar kind of outcome or?
  • 00:10:38.260 --> 00:10:42.060
  • - Not at all.
  • 00:10:42.060 --> 00:10:43.100
  • - You wasn't thinking along that?
  • 00:10:43.100 --> 00:10:44.040
  • - You weren't?
  • 00:10:44.040 --> 00:10:44.280
  • - I weren't.
  • 00:10:44.280 --> 00:10:46.030
  • I wasn't, I wasn't praying I want a virgin.
  • 00:10:46.030 --> 00:10:47.170
  • - Obviously y'all never had this kind of discussion.
  • 00:10:47.170 --> 00:10:49.120
  • - Yeah, I wasn't praying for it.
  • 00:10:49.120 --> 00:10:51.290
  • It's just something that.
  • 00:10:51.290 --> 00:10:53.280
  • I'm real diligent.
  • 00:10:53.280 --> 00:10:55.200
  • I'm a real diligent person,
  • 00:10:55.200 --> 00:10:56.290
  • so it wasn't about anybody else doing it.
  • 00:10:56.290 --> 00:10:59.140
  • It was about what I needed to do
  • 00:10:59.140 --> 00:11:02.100
  • in the commitment that I made.
  • 00:11:02.100 --> 00:11:04.040
  • So I'm really not saying that you praying for it.
  • 00:11:04.040 --> 00:11:07.100
  • But it was just something for me.
  • 00:11:07.100 --> 00:11:09.040
  • Yeah, but I didn't pray for it.
  • 00:11:09.040 --> 00:11:10.080
  • - Well we gotta go to break.
  • 00:11:10.080 --> 00:11:11.280
  • But I wanna find out,
  • 00:11:11.280 --> 00:11:13.280
  • what you would tell another young man.
  • 00:11:13.280 --> 00:11:18.020
  • Because we need more young men like you.
  • 00:11:18.020 --> 00:11:20.210
  • And then secondly, I would like for you
  • 00:11:20.210 --> 00:11:23.000
  • to explain this whole purity piece.
  • 00:11:23.000 --> 00:11:26.020
  • Because purity is not just abstaining from the sexual act.
  • 00:11:26.020 --> 00:11:29.280
  • 'Cause you can have all kind of
  • 00:11:29.280 --> 00:11:31.260
  • perverted things going on in your soul.
  • 00:11:31.260 --> 00:11:34.190
  • And that will disqualify you
  • 00:11:34.190 --> 00:11:37.100
  • as for being pure.
  • 00:11:37.100 --> 00:11:39.040
  • And so when we come back,
  • 00:11:39.040 --> 00:11:41.140
  • with the Bowman's, we're gonna have
  • 00:11:42.150 --> 00:11:44.230
  • those questions answered.
  • 00:11:44.230 --> 00:11:47.000
  • Stay tuned.
  • 00:11:47.000 --> 00:11:48.070
  • - Hola!
  • 00:11:55.260 --> 00:11:56.210
  • Boom, boom, boom, boom!
  • 00:11:58.000 --> 00:11:59.270
  • Babe, let's go.
  • 00:12:00.290 --> 00:12:02.060
  • We're going to get our marriage license today.
  • 00:12:03.170 --> 00:12:05.240
  • Whoop, whoop, whoop!
  • 00:12:05.240 --> 00:12:07.150
  • - Turn up, turn up, turn up
  • 00:12:07.150 --> 00:12:09.030
  • - You look cute!
  • 00:12:09.030 --> 00:12:10.280
  • So, we're excited.
  • 00:12:10.280 --> 00:12:13.000
  • I'm a little nervous because
  • 00:12:13.000 --> 00:12:14.090
  • (clears throat)
  • 00:12:14.090 --> 00:12:15.150
  • - What are you nervous for?
  • 00:12:15.150 --> 00:12:16.100
  • - Signing my life away.
  • 00:12:16.100 --> 00:12:17.100
  • (laughs)
  • 00:12:17.100 --> 00:12:18.050
  • - No, no, no.
  • 00:12:18.050 --> 00:12:19.060
  • - I'm not nervous at all because
  • 00:12:19.060 --> 00:12:20.120
  • I've never been sure of anything else
  • 00:12:20.120 --> 00:12:23.020
  • as I am sure of marrying this beautiful woman, right here.
  • 00:12:23.020 --> 00:12:27.090
  • - Oh, he's just trying to be sweet.
  • 00:12:27.090 --> 00:12:30.040
  • - Well we are on our way to the courthouse
  • 00:12:38.200 --> 00:12:41.100
  • to get our marriage license.
  • 00:12:41.100 --> 00:12:43.200
  • This is a big day, a big step.
  • 00:12:44.170 --> 00:12:47.020
  • It makes the whole process feel so much more real.
  • 00:12:48.180 --> 00:12:52.230
  • And I don't know what
  • 00:12:54.050 --> 00:12:56.170
  • what's in store.
  • 00:12:56.170 --> 00:12:58.030
  • Did I bring all the things I was supposed to bring?
  • 00:12:58.030 --> 00:13:01.290
  • No, yes?
  • 00:13:01.290 --> 00:13:02.240
  • You was supposed to make sure
  • 00:13:04.090 --> 00:13:05.080
  • - Did you?
  • 00:13:05.080 --> 00:13:06.140
  • - I guess, but yeah, I'm excited.
  • 00:13:06.140 --> 00:13:08.130
  • - I am thrilled.
  • 00:13:08.130 --> 00:13:09.230
  • I am overjoyed.
  • 00:13:11.160 --> 00:13:12.230
  • I'm overwhelmed.
  • 00:13:14.140 --> 00:13:15.240
  • I feel so many different ways I can keep going,
  • 00:13:17.210 --> 00:13:21.050
  • but I am excited about today.
  • 00:13:21.050 --> 00:13:23.240
  • It's one step closer.
  • 00:13:23.240 --> 00:13:25.160
  • We are officially 12 days away.
  • 00:13:26.250 --> 00:13:29.120
  • And it couldn't get here quick enough.
  • 00:13:30.230 --> 00:13:33.280
  • - Ya'll are looking at the marriage license
  • 00:13:36.240 --> 00:13:39.060
  • for Timothy Bowman Jr, and Brelyn Freeman.
  • 00:13:39.060 --> 00:13:42.150
  • Ya'll, we are so excited,
  • 00:13:42.150 --> 00:13:43.250
  • we got a chance to just come into the chapel
  • 00:13:43.250 --> 00:13:46.070
  • where people will come and get married
  • 00:13:46.070 --> 00:13:48.010
  • if they want to get married at the courthouse.
  • 00:13:48.010 --> 00:13:50.070
  • But, we are just overjoyed.
  • 00:13:50.070 --> 00:13:51.250
  • God has been so good to us, and we're so grateful.
  • 00:13:51.250 --> 00:13:54.040
  • And He's just so mindful.
  • 00:13:54.040 --> 00:13:56.060
  • He knew what I wanted in a wife and He gave it to me.
  • 00:13:56.060 --> 00:13:59.240
  • - Likewise.
  • 00:13:59.240 --> 00:14:01.050
  • - And we're just excited, man.
  • 00:14:01.050 --> 00:14:02.290
  • We don't take any of this for granted
  • 00:14:02.290 --> 00:14:04.280
  • We don't take
  • 00:14:04.280 --> 00:14:05.270
  • And I believe that God is also
  • 00:14:05.270 --> 00:14:08.050
  • honoring the sacrifice and commitment
  • 00:14:08.050 --> 00:14:10.260
  • that we made to Him, and to each other.
  • 00:14:10.260 --> 00:14:13.020
  • We have not had sex.
  • 00:14:13.020 --> 00:14:15.030
  • We're not ashamed of it.
  • 00:14:15.030 --> 00:14:16.220
  • And I believe it's going to
  • 00:14:16.220 --> 00:14:18.070
  • - or with anyone
  • 00:14:18.070 --> 00:14:19.020
  • - with anyone
  • 00:14:19.020 --> 00:14:19.270
  • - we're virgins
  • 00:14:19.270 --> 00:14:20.220
  • - virgins and
  • 00:14:20.220 --> 00:14:21.170
  • - to be clear
  • 00:14:21.170 --> 00:14:23.000
  • - We're just excited, man.
  • 00:14:23.000 --> 00:14:23.240
  • So we're back with hashtag meet the Bowman's.
  • 00:14:39.040 --> 00:14:42.130
  • And you need to go on that website
  • 00:14:42.130 --> 00:14:44.160
  • and find out all of the information that they have.
  • 00:14:44.160 --> 00:14:47.240
  • They have product, everything that will bless your life.
  • 00:14:47.240 --> 00:14:50.160
  • - [DeeDee] The purity certificate.

  • - Put your child on the right path.
  • 00:14:51.250 --> 00:14:54.010
  • And even if in fact you're still single
  • 00:14:54.010 --> 00:14:56.150
  • and considering that,
  • 00:14:56.150 --> 00:14:58.090
  • then that will be a great place to start.
  • 00:14:58.090 --> 00:15:00.260
  • So, watch this.
  • 00:15:00.260 --> 00:15:02.150
  • Tim, before we went to our break,
  • 00:15:02.150 --> 00:15:05.290
  • you were going to share with
  • 00:15:05.290 --> 00:15:08.190
  • other young men, how they can position themself.
  • 00:15:08.190 --> 00:15:13.040
  • I know Brelyn just mentioned
  • 00:15:13.040 --> 00:15:15.120
  • this thing has to go viral in you.
  • 00:15:15.120 --> 00:15:18.140
  • How would you suggest or recommend
  • 00:15:18.140 --> 00:15:22.160
  • a young men just keep that kind of focus throughout?
  • 00:15:22.160 --> 00:15:25.290
  • - Well, I think it's two things.
  • 00:15:25.290 --> 00:15:27.280
  • I think it's very rare for people in this generation--
  • 00:15:27.280 --> 00:15:31.270
  • - It is.
  • 00:15:31.270 --> 00:15:33.000
  • - To make that commitment and keep it.
  • 00:15:33.000 --> 00:15:34.140
  • But it's more rare, I would say for a man to do it.
  • 00:15:34.140 --> 00:15:37.070
  • - Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
  • 00:15:37.070 --> 00:15:38.140
  • - And there's this big misconception--
  • 00:15:38.140 --> 00:15:41.000
  • - 'Cause Tim I would have done it
  • 00:15:41.000 --> 00:15:42.110
  • if DeeDee wouldn't have been pressuring
  • 00:15:42.110 --> 00:15:45.180
  • me so much. - [DeeDee] I was all on you!
  • 00:15:45.180 --> 00:15:47.230
  • - Stop it, stop.
  • 00:15:47.230 --> 00:15:50.100
  • That is not true at all.
  • 00:15:50.100 --> 00:15:52.110
  • It was just the opposite actually.
  • 00:15:52.110 --> 00:15:55.060
  • Okay, so talk to me, I apologize.
  • 00:15:55.060 --> 00:15:57.230
  • - No, no, no, no, no, no.
  • 00:15:57.230 --> 00:15:59.080
  • But it's this misconception that you come off as weak,
  • 00:15:59.080 --> 00:16:02.140
  • and you know you wack. - [Mike] Lame.
  • 00:16:02.140 --> 00:16:04.070
  • - [Tim] Yeah all that stuff.
  • 00:16:04.070 --> 00:16:06.040
  • - Less than a man.
  • 00:16:07.030 --> 00:16:08.020
  • - Less than a man.
  • 00:16:08.020 --> 00:16:09.170
  • - Did you hear all of that?
  • 00:16:10.190 --> 00:16:11.250
  • Did you hear?
  • 00:16:11.250 --> 00:16:12.230
  • - No--
  • 00:16:12.230 --> 00:16:13.210
  • - Or were you as public with it
  • 00:16:13.210 --> 00:16:15.150
  • or you kept it on the.
  • 00:16:15.150 --> 00:16:17.080
  • - I really was public, but I don't have a
  • 00:16:17.080 --> 00:16:20.250
  • self-confidence problem.
  • 00:16:20.250 --> 00:16:22.210
  • You always tell me that.
  • 00:16:24.150 --> 00:16:25.280
  • (hissess)
  • 00:16:25.280 --> 00:16:27.200
  • Just come down just a little bit.
  • 00:16:27.200 --> 00:16:28.280
  • He calls me four much.
  • 00:16:28.280 --> 00:16:30.280
  • I'm not two much I'm four much.
  • 00:16:30.280 --> 00:16:32.120
  • But no, I think it's my motto through this whole thing.
  • 00:16:32.120 --> 00:16:36.110
  • And I keep saying it.
  • 00:16:36.110 --> 00:16:37.260
  • Is we feel like we need sex to boost up our swag.
  • 00:16:37.260 --> 00:16:41.210
  • And I always have been saying,
  • 00:16:41.210 --> 00:16:43.260
  • that if you need sex for your swag,
  • 00:16:43.260 --> 00:16:46.150
  • you didn't have much swag in the first place.
  • 00:16:46.150 --> 00:16:48.160
  • - Come on, come on.
  • 00:16:48.160 --> 00:16:49.210
  • - Now I'm just saying that because,
  • 00:16:49.210 --> 00:16:51.250
  • you think you have this swag.
  • 00:16:51.250 --> 00:16:53.190
  • And you sweed and you walking around on all these things.
  • 00:16:53.190 --> 00:16:57.020
  • But if you really care that much about
  • 00:16:57.020 --> 00:16:59.110
  • what people think about you.
  • 00:16:59.110 --> 00:17:01.040
  • Like what is that?
  • 00:17:01.040 --> 00:17:02.070
  • All that stuff is superficial.
  • 00:17:02.070 --> 00:17:03.290
  • So first, for me, it was finding out who I was.
  • 00:17:03.290 --> 00:17:07.170
  • - Where was your focus?
  • 00:17:07.170 --> 00:17:09.020
  • I mean was your focus that you have one individual?
  • 00:17:09.020 --> 00:17:12.070
  • Did you have your pastor?
  • 00:17:12.070 --> 00:17:14.110
  • Who guided you?
  • 00:17:14.110 --> 00:17:16.170
  • Who was the mentor?
  • 00:17:16.170 --> 00:17:18.230
  • How do you do that?
  • 00:17:18.230 --> 00:17:21.040
  • I mean, how do you abstain?
  • 00:17:21.040 --> 00:17:23.160
  • I really want you to--
  • 00:17:23.160 --> 00:17:25.100
  • - Yeah, was that something your
  • 00:17:25.100 --> 00:17:26.080
  • parents preached to you or what?
  • 00:17:26.080 --> 00:17:28.070
  • - It's good.
  • 00:17:28.070 --> 00:17:29.140
  • Finding something that was more pleasurable
  • 00:17:29.140 --> 00:17:32.160
  • than the act itself.
  • 00:17:32.160 --> 00:17:34.080
  • So the whole reason why people have
  • 00:17:34.080 --> 00:17:36.140
  • sex before marriage and ruin that commitment
  • 00:17:36.140 --> 00:17:38.190
  • is to experience that pleasure.
  • 00:17:38.190 --> 00:17:40.030
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:17:40.030 --> 00:17:41.010
  • - So for me, and like I said,
  • 00:17:41.010 --> 00:17:43.090
  • people have been saying I was 60
  • 00:17:43.090 --> 00:17:44.190
  • since I was 14 years old.
  • 00:17:44.190 --> 00:17:46.120
  • But for me, breaking that commitment to God
  • 00:17:46.120 --> 00:17:49.020
  • was so much more important.
  • 00:17:49.020 --> 00:17:50.280
  • - See that's what I'm saying.
  • 00:17:50.280 --> 00:17:51.260
  • So you had something higher
  • 00:17:51.260 --> 00:17:54.050
  • than that particular pleasure
  • 00:17:54.050 --> 00:17:56.280
  • that helped you to abstain over that time.
  • 00:17:56.280 --> 00:18:00.220
  • - And that principle that was put into me
  • 00:18:00.220 --> 00:18:03.090
  • pertaining to sex has carried
  • 00:18:03.090 --> 00:18:05.140
  • on in my life to other things.
  • 00:18:05.140 --> 00:18:08.070
  • - And so what was the deal with you
  • 00:18:08.070 --> 00:18:10.020
  • with respect to that Bre?
  • 00:18:10.020 --> 00:18:11.170
  • - Well mine was just being involved,
  • 00:18:11.170 --> 00:18:14.000
  • or my upcoming, upbringing with you all.
  • 00:18:14.000 --> 00:18:16.280
  • Knowing what the word was.
  • 00:18:16.280 --> 00:18:18.260
  • And I always say that parents are the representations
  • 00:18:18.260 --> 00:18:21.140
  • of Christ in the earth.
  • 00:18:21.140 --> 00:18:22.250
  • So your word to me was gold.
  • 00:18:22.250 --> 00:18:25.100
  • It was like, that's what I'm gonna do.
  • 00:18:25.100 --> 00:18:27.200
  • But as I got older I gained a relationship
  • 00:18:27.200 --> 00:18:30.090
  • with God for myself.
  • 00:18:30.090 --> 00:18:31.260
  • And I gained a relationship with the word.
  • 00:18:31.260 --> 00:18:33.170
  • So I knew this was right and this was what I wanna do.
  • 00:18:33.170 --> 00:18:36.090
  • So that kept me on track.
  • 00:18:36.090 --> 00:18:37.220
  • And then having people around me
  • 00:18:37.220 --> 00:18:40.070
  • who had the same like mind.
  • 00:18:40.070 --> 00:18:41.270
  • I think Tim's upbringing. - [Mike] That's my motto.
  • 00:18:41.270 --> 00:18:43.290
  • - Yeah, right, hang with those who have your answer,
  • 00:18:43.290 --> 00:18:46.080
  • get away from those who have your problem.
  • 00:18:46.080 --> 00:18:47.200
  • - Come on, preach it.
  • 00:18:47.200 --> 00:18:48.250
  • - And that is huge, because if Tim
  • 00:18:48.250 --> 00:18:51.190
  • even as a guy like he said.
  • 00:18:51.190 --> 00:18:54.200
  • Just putting up something that's higher
  • 00:18:54.200 --> 00:18:57.260
  • than the pleasure of sex.
  • 00:18:57.260 --> 00:18:59.270
  • Is like, for him that was his way,
  • 00:18:59.270 --> 00:19:01.220
  • and a lot of people don't have that upbringing
  • 00:19:01.220 --> 00:19:04.010
  • or people they know who wanna abstain.
  • 00:19:04.010 --> 00:19:06.290
  • But if they just say, okay, this is what
  • 00:19:06.290 --> 00:19:08.270
  • God wants for me.
  • 00:19:08.270 --> 00:19:10.120
  • And then when you honor God's word, He'll honor you.
  • 00:19:10.120 --> 00:19:13.010
  • And that's when you--
  • 00:19:13.010 --> 00:19:14.040
  • - We've seen the fruit.
  • 00:19:14.040 --> 00:19:15.200
  • It's like we could sit here right now.
  • 00:19:15.200 --> 00:19:18.010
  • Last week was our 10 month anniversary.
  • 00:19:19.020 --> 00:19:21.190
  • - [Bree and Mike] Three month.
  • 00:19:21.190 --> 00:19:22.260
  • - Three month, why am I saying 10?
  • 00:19:22.260 --> 00:19:24.250
  • - I heard three.
  • 00:19:24.250 --> 00:19:26.020
  • - 10 is on my head for some reason.
  • 00:19:26.020 --> 00:19:27.110
  • - Yeah, yeah, you were married the 10th day.
  • 00:19:27.110 --> 00:19:28.250
  • - God has start a word in me.
  • 00:19:28.250 --> 00:19:30.090
  • We'll reveal it later on.
  • 00:19:30.090 --> 00:19:32.060
  • He's dealing with Tim, He's dealing with Tim.
  • 00:19:32.060 --> 00:19:35.060
  • Anyway, it was our three month anniversary
  • 00:19:35.060 --> 00:19:37.210
  • and we can sit here and say that
  • 00:19:37.210 --> 00:19:39.120
  • we have experienced the fruit
  • 00:19:39.120 --> 00:19:42.000
  • of the decisions that we have made so.
  • 00:19:42.000 --> 00:19:44.030
  • - Yeah, I think that's what I love most
  • 00:19:44.030 --> 00:19:45.150
  • about our story.
  • 00:19:45.150 --> 00:19:47.000
  • Because you see a lot of people talk.
  • 00:19:47.000 --> 00:19:48.160
  • I've been abstaining for 50 years,
  • 00:19:48.160 --> 00:19:51.000
  • which is not a put down or anything bad,
  • 00:19:51.000 --> 00:19:53.020
  • but God really allowed our story to go viral
  • 00:19:53.020 --> 00:19:55.250
  • when we had the fruit.
  • 00:19:55.250 --> 00:19:57.130
  • So it's like, we're not just talking.
  • 00:19:57.130 --> 00:19:59.220
  • Like, we not just talking, we did this.
  • 00:19:59.220 --> 00:20:02.040
  • So we have the fruit of it.
  • 00:20:02.040 --> 00:20:03.200
  • That's what I love about it 'cause we can
  • 00:20:03.200 --> 00:20:05.120
  • share with people it is possible
  • 00:20:05.120 --> 00:20:07.010
  • and we did do it.
  • 00:20:07.010 --> 00:20:08.060
  • And this is the fruit of what we did.
  • 00:20:08.060 --> 00:20:09.210
  • - Okay, backtrack.
  • 00:20:09.210 --> 00:20:10.260
  • 'Cause we saw a little highlight of it.
  • 00:20:10.260 --> 00:20:12.160
  • We're at the reception, you call me up,
  • 00:20:12.160 --> 00:20:15.030
  • just like you saw your sister do it.
  • 00:20:15.030 --> 00:20:17.110
  • I was used to that, because she did it.
  • 00:20:17.110 --> 00:20:19.250
  • And now this is my moment to receive the certificate.
  • 00:20:19.250 --> 00:20:23.280
  • You give me the certificate--
  • 00:20:23.280 --> 00:20:25.040
  • - But was that required?
  • 00:20:25.040 --> 00:20:26.060
  • - Yeah, you darn tooting it was.
  • 00:20:26.060 --> 00:20:27.270
  • No (pastor laughs).
  • 00:20:27.270 --> 00:20:30.140
  • It was not required.
  • 00:20:30.140 --> 00:20:32.010
  • - That's what the issue has been.
  • 00:20:32.010 --> 00:20:33.170
  • - That was one of the issues yeah.
  • 00:20:33.170 --> 00:20:34.210
  • - You know, this whole time.
  • 00:20:34.210 --> 00:20:35.280
  • - Yeah, I was a jerk.
  • 00:20:35.280 --> 00:20:37.050
  • I was just some kind of--
  • 00:20:37.050 --> 00:20:38.190
  • - You were just everything.
  • 00:20:38.190 --> 00:20:40.000
  • Creep everything. - [Mike] Everything, so yeah.
  • 00:20:40.000 --> 00:20:41.010
  • - [Mike] But look at the fruit.
  • 00:20:41.010 --> 00:20:42.030
  • Get this, so you're now married,
  • 00:20:43.140 --> 00:20:47.030
  • you're at the reception, I get this certificate.
  • 00:20:47.030 --> 00:20:49.170
  • You leave, you're on your way to Dubai, your honeymoon spot.
  • 00:20:49.170 --> 00:20:52.290
  • Or the Maldives.
  • 00:20:52.290 --> 00:20:54.210
  • The plane lands, you turn on your phone and?
  • 00:20:55.230 --> 00:20:59.180
  • - Kaboom.
  • 00:20:59.180 --> 00:21:01.050
  • - Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom.
  • 00:21:01.050 --> 00:21:03.020
  • Like it went crazy.
  • 00:21:03.020 --> 00:21:04.260
  • Because really I was just doing highlights of the wedding.
  • 00:21:04.260 --> 00:21:08.000
  • And because I've been sharing my story
  • 00:21:08.000 --> 00:21:09.220
  • and my commitment to God so long ago
  • 00:21:09.220 --> 00:21:12.050
  • it wasn't something different for me
  • 00:21:12.050 --> 00:21:14.040
  • to post about my commitment or what I did.
  • 00:21:14.040 --> 00:21:16.250
  • So the highlights are just,
  • 00:21:16.250 --> 00:21:18.140
  • me and Tim dancing.
  • 00:21:18.140 --> 00:21:20.000
  • And then I say okay, "Hey I presented my father
  • 00:21:20.000 --> 00:21:22.120
  • "with this purity certificate stating that I was a virgin."
  • 00:21:22.120 --> 00:21:25.230
  • Got my doctor's signature, everything on that.
  • 00:21:25.230 --> 00:21:28.160
  • And then that, it just was like crazy.
  • 00:21:28.160 --> 00:21:31.240
  • So I think in the moment,
  • 00:21:31.240 --> 00:21:33.290
  • Tim really just said, "Hey look.
  • 00:21:33.290 --> 00:21:36.130
  • "This could be bad or this could be good."
  • 00:21:36.130 --> 00:21:38.220
  • Tim is very calm in situations.
  • 00:21:38.220 --> 00:21:40.250
  • I could be the one that's like (fake screams).
  • 00:21:40.250 --> 00:21:42.270
  • - Well let's deduce it down to what it is.
  • 00:21:42.270 --> 00:21:45.260
  • Okay we looking at it, and let's figure it out.
  • 00:21:45.260 --> 00:21:48.200
  • All this extra.
  • 00:21:48.200 --> 00:21:50.050
  • Because people had a lot of negative things to say.
  • 00:21:50.050 --> 00:21:52.090
  • - It started off really negative.
  • 00:21:52.090 --> 00:21:54.290
  • 'Cause the Shade Room posted it.
  • 00:21:54.290 --> 00:21:57.040
  • - I remember your calling home and like "Dad."
  • 00:21:57.040 --> 00:22:00.090
  • - And it was like "The Shade Room posted it!"
  • 00:22:00.090 --> 00:22:01.210
  • People were saying da da da.
  • 00:22:01.210 --> 00:22:03.060
  • - I'm not familiar with the Shade Room like that.
  • 00:22:03.060 --> 00:22:04.250
  • - They throw shade.
  • 00:22:04.250 --> 00:22:05.250
  • - That's all they do.
  • 00:22:05.250 --> 00:22:06.230
  • - That's all you need to know.
  • 00:22:06.230 --> 00:22:07.210
  • - A room of shade.
  • 00:22:07.210 --> 00:22:08.210
  • - [Bre and Mike] A room of shade.
  • 00:22:08.210 --> 00:22:10.080
  • - [Mike] And you felt like clapping back.
  • 00:22:10.080 --> 00:22:11.290
  • I learned that. - [Tim] Yes.
  • 00:22:11.290 --> 00:22:13.130
  • - But it was great, because he allowed me
  • 00:22:15.200 --> 00:22:18.130
  • to see it as, "Okay this is an opportunity
  • 00:22:18.130 --> 00:22:20.220
  • "to share your story.
  • 00:22:20.220 --> 00:22:22.040
  • "And God is now giving you another platform
  • 00:22:22.040 --> 00:22:24.140
  • "to share your testimony and encourage others to wait."
  • 00:22:24.140 --> 00:22:28.060
  • - And that's what we're gonna talk about.
  • 00:22:28.060 --> 00:22:29.250
  • The platform, the books, the products.
  • 00:22:29.250 --> 00:22:33.280
  • I mean you're gonna be so amazed
  • 00:22:33.280 --> 00:22:37.110
  • at what the Lord has done
  • 00:22:37.110 --> 00:22:40.030
  • through their testimony and story.
  • 00:22:40.030 --> 00:22:42.110
  • And I am elated to be able to say that's my baby girl.
  • 00:22:42.110 --> 00:22:46.240
  • Stay tuned, don't go anywhere,
  • 00:22:46.240 --> 00:22:48.170
  • we'll be right back.
  • 00:22:48.170 --> 00:22:50.000
  • So, we at the rehearsal dinner,
  • 00:22:53.070 --> 00:22:55.000
  • we just got done with the rehearsal.
  • 00:22:55.000 --> 00:22:58.100
  • It's still feeling surreal.
  • 00:22:58.100 --> 00:23:00.190
  • I'm so excited.
  • 00:23:00.190 --> 00:23:01.260
  • I can't even explain the feeling that I have.
  • 00:23:01.260 --> 00:23:05.100
  • It's like I waited my entire life

  • And I'm signing my covenant letter back to my dad.
  • 00:25:26.180 --> 00:25:30.230

  • 00:25:30.230 --> 00:25:34.000
  • Brelyn, you know that you will always be
  • 00:25:35.040 --> 00:25:38.150
  • be the one, na, na, na, na, na, na.
  • 00:25:40.030 --> 00:25:43.030
  • You'll always be number one for me.
  • 00:25:46.150 --> 00:25:49.120
  • - Here's another tip that you can consider
  • 00:25:54.170 --> 00:25:56.060
  • to making your marriage easy.
  • 00:25:56.060 --> 00:25:58.150
  • Marriage is very easy.
  • 00:25:58.150 --> 00:26:00.140
  • One of the things you can literally
  • 00:26:00.140 --> 00:26:02.130
  • stop saying is that it's hard.
  • 00:26:02.130 --> 00:26:04.230
  • - It's hard.
  • 00:26:04.230 --> 00:26:06.000
  • - You have what you say and there's a law
  • 00:26:06.000 --> 00:26:07.250
  • that you are putting into motion
  • 00:26:07.250 --> 00:26:09.260
  • every time you make that confession.
  • 00:26:09.260 --> 00:26:13.050
  • "Marriage is so hard. Marriage is so hard.
  • 00:26:13.050 --> 00:26:15.170
  • "We can't talk. We can't get along."
  • 00:26:15.170 --> 00:26:17.260
  • Listen to your words.
  • 00:26:17.260 --> 00:26:19.150
  • If you'll do that, listen to your words,
  • 00:26:19.150 --> 00:26:22.050
  • and begin to monitor them and say the right things
  • 00:26:22.050 --> 00:26:25.240
  • and respond the right way, you will always have
  • 00:26:25.240 --> 00:26:30.000
  • that direction, everything going in that direction
  • 00:26:30.000 --> 00:26:33.210
  • when you put your words in this proper place.
  • 00:26:33.210 --> 00:26:36.040
  • - Because they really don't want to say
  • 00:26:36.040 --> 00:26:37.210
  • that it's hard or they can't communicate.
  • 00:26:37.210 --> 00:26:40.040
  • They really want to say, "I want to be understood
  • 00:26:40.040 --> 00:26:43.060
  • "and I'm not being understood."
  • 00:26:43.060 --> 00:26:44.230
  • We have to say the right words to get the right answers.
  • 00:26:44.230 --> 00:26:47.190
  • - That is a fantastic tip for you
  • 00:26:47.190 --> 00:26:51.000
  • to start implementing today.
  • 00:26:51.000 --> 00:26:54.010
