My husband and I are big fans of Kirk and Tammy and their ministry. I believe they both really showed what Christ truly represents when they appeared on Oprah. Loving people no matter what their imperfections. We are charged as people and mostly as christians to love people thru all situations. Also as christians we are charged to be honest and blameless so that we wont hinder others that desire to come to Christ. Which,in saying that makes what they shared with the world such an honorable act. Kirk's confession really opened my eyes to help me see myself when dealing with the issue of loving others and praying for them when they are going thru instead of judging them,which is so easy to do when its not you going thru at that time, cause the truth is we all have our ISSUES. So I just wanted to say to he and his wife that there are people out there praying for them genuinely without judging. Never dealing with the particular issue that they dealt with we have still experienced similar challenges in our marriage and God has still kept us 5yrs.strong Dec.9 '05. We both desire to meet kirk and his family one day,there are alot of things we have in common with them. We sing and write music and the lyrics to his songs pratically write down our thoughts about Christ and what he means to us. His style and method of writing music is phenomenal. It really hits those areas where sometimes you just cant find the words.We would love to work with him one day,if it be Gods will. I put all this in my comments hoping that it will reach Mr.or Mrs.Franklin's hands. If it does may God continue to use you and your wife. You are truly an inspiration to us in so many ways and we just pray that God will bless your lives even the more for allowing yourselves to be put out there for the sake of Christ. AS FOR THIS NETWORK I THINK ITS COOL, ITS NICE TO HAVE SOMEWHERE TO SEND YOUR COMMENTS WHERE THEY WILL BE RECOGNIZED, GOD BLESS.
