Creflo Dollar's Statement to His Church

Most of us have heard the news of Creflo Dollar's recent arrest.  In a statement to his Church on this past Sunday, Rev. Dollar had a message to his church, regarding the recent allegations of choking his 15-year old daughter.

“I want you to hear it personally from me: All is well in the Dollar household,” he said. “A family conversation with our youngest daughter got emotional. Things escalated from there.” But he said: “She was not choked. She was not punched.” What a police report described as scratches on her neck were remnants of a long-ago case of eczema, he said. (from Eurweb.com)

Click HERE for more information and the video statement.

During this time, the Dollar family is in our prayers.

A New Reality Show for Mary Mary

Gospel duo, Mary Mary, have their very own reality show starting on March 29th (10pm EST) on We TV.

The We TV website provides the following synopsis for the show:

Sister duo Erica and Tina Campbell make up the multi-Grammy award winning Gospel group Mary Mary. Balancing busy lives of worldwide recording artists with the demands of being both mothers and wives is challenging, especially when working closely with family.


Tina and her husband, Teddy, have four children. Erica and her husband, Warryn, have two small children and are expecting another. Despite the glamorous life of Mary Mary on the road, at home it’s very different. Luckily for Erica and Tina, their supportive husbands also work in the music business and understand the challenges they face. Warryn is the successful producer to Mary Mary, and Tina’s husband, Teddy, is The Tonight Show’s drummer. In the end, family trumps all, but Mary Mary’s music is their true passion, and they are determined to reach even greater heights.

Per We TV: New episodes then air in its regular timeslot Thursdays at 9pm EST beginning April 5, with 10, hour-long episodes.

Looking forward to the show!
