On Friday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Alex and Stephen Kendrick join us to talk about their new movie release, Lifemark. In summary, (main character) David’s comfortable world is turned upside down when his birthmother unexpectedly reaches out to him, longing to meet the 18-year-old son she’s only held once. This movie is inspired by an incredible true story that celebrates the gift of life.
If you’re wondering if God can truly move in the life of someone with all the odds stacked against her, look no further than author, Tori Hope Petersen, our guest on Friday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte. Tori grew up in the foster care system, a bi-racial child in a confusing and volatile world. Growing up with a mentally ill mother and living in twelve different foster homes, nothing was in her favor. And yet, even with a minuscule chance of graduating college and a great risk of being homeless, jobless, and on drugs, Tori overcame every negative stereotype and assumption that attacked her identity. However, Tori will tell you she did not overcome. Christ did.
