When I was growin' up,

people didn't really talk about miracles.

I'm not sure I understood what they were

or if I believed in them.

A miracle is defined

as something not explicable

by natural or scientific laws.

But then how do you explain it?

How does it happen?

Who or what is behind it?

Kevin, Adelynn, Annabel, let's go!

Kevin! Abbie!

- Oh, my gosh. This is so fun!

- Wait.

Wait. Okay, my turn.

- Okay, okay.

- I want a turn now.

I never got a turn.

- You'll get dizzy.

- You're dizzy.

Well, Adelynn, it's not good

for a six-year-old.

Your brain's still developing.

It sucks being six.

You should watch your mouth, Adelynn.

You know, you could go to hell for swearing.

I'm not going to hell.

Hell is in California.

- Who told you that, Adelynn?

- Liz Johnson from school.

Is she the one whose parents think

that Disneyland's the work of Satan?

- That's her.

- Well,

no one here is goin' to hell.

Unless you girls get your clothes dirty.

How many times have I told you

not to play outside

in your Sunday school dresses?

- Come here.

- Sorry, Mom.

- Sorry, Mom.

- It's all right.

I'll just pretend you're not mine.

Hey, Kevin!

I have to tell you not to play

outside before church, too?

They get cranky when they're hungry, baby,

you know that.


- Grab my sweater, would you, honey?

- Okay.

It's quarter to, hon. We're gonna be late.

Relax, baby, we're good.

- We got to get you changed.

- Don't you worry about it, baby.

I got it all under control.

Well, it's not shirtless Sunday at church.

Come on, girls.

Abbie, Adelynn, Anna, let's go!

Go on and get in the truck.

Your mother's stressin' out.

You look pretty.

Thanks, Daddy.

- Come on.

- They take after their mama.

Oh, please.

So, do I look handsome?

Or fetching, maybe?


Buckle up, girls. Let's go.

Nothin', really?

All right. Tough crowd.


Here we go!

God, I'm runnin' for your heart

I'm runnin' for your heart

Till I am a soul on fire

Lord, I'm longing for your ways

I'm waiting for the day

Help me out.

Till I am a soul on fire

Well, I am a soul on fire

I'm running

God, I'm running

And I want to be, I want to be

How 'bout we go this time. Come on.

A soul on fire

Lord, let me be your soul on fire

Come on, help us sing it now.

Soul on fire


Let's hear it for Mac and the band!

Yeah. That's fantastic.

There is a common phrase,

"No pain, no gain."

And it is, of course,

attributed to the sculpting of our bodies.

But the same principle can be applied

to the sculpting of our character

and the deepening of our spiritual life.

So, when the road gets bumpy,

when the storms rain down,

I could do a few things to protect myself.

You know, I could get a nice helmet.

And we might be able

to find ourselves an umbrella.

Just happened to be there.

Now that that's open,

uh, we better make sure

that our insurance premiums

are paid up, too.

So, we can get an umbrella,

and we can get a helmet,

and we can get insurance.

But there's one thing that we need

that can't be seen,

and it can't be bought.

And that is faith.

Yeah. Amen.

Faith is really the only true shelter.


Oh, I'm right where I belong

Got a good thing going on

Man, that smells really good.

Ain't no sweeter easy going,

ain't no softer summer breeze

Ain't no place I'd rather call home

Oh, I'm right where I belong


I just want to thank the Beams

for opening up their home

for our monthly picnic.

You're so good.


sign-ups for the trip

to the Dallas Aquarium are this week.

- Not next week, this week.

- Yeah, I want to go.

- Yeah, we'll go.

- And finally, anybody

who has an animal

or who has a friend with an animal

or a family member who has an animal

or you are an animal,

your husband who you want

to get out of the house

for maybe a little bit of time with...

...you know, some air conditioning

and a bowl of water,

take 'em over to see

our brother Kevin Beam...

- Yeah, Kevin!

- ...who has just opened the largest

mixed animal clinic in Texas. Okay?

Send everybody!

Send everybody and their animals.

- Thank you.

- We'll be prayin' for you.

We'll be prayin' for all of you.

I do not even want to know

what you paid for that.

Oh, more than I care to think about.

We took every bit of equity

out of this house so he could open.


Every bit of equity.

- You agreed to that?

- Mmm-hmm.

Oh, see, no.

I could not let Travis do that.

I would not be able to sleep at night.

That's good for you.

Good for you that you're doin' that.

Any prayers you want to share?

I'm 13, Mom.

I know, almost a grown-up.

- Okay.

- Okay.

I prayed that I make

the Fort Worth all-star team.


Because I have

the second most goals on the team,

so, you know, I think that

I at least deserve a tryout.

I'm with you.

Hey, goober nugget.

- Hi.

- Bedtime.

Say your prayers?

Share one.

That I can be older than Abbie and Anna.

And I prayed that you'll

change my name to Taylor.

Well, I wonder how that's

gonna turn out for you.

Come on, Mom.

I love you, Adelynn.

- I prayed that Daddy's business does well.

- Mmm-hmm.

And I prayed that he can bring home

some more dogs that don't have homes.

Oh, can you cancel that part?

We have enough dogs, Anna.

Too late. It's already been sent.

Express mail.

Hey, how do you like this?

- Love.

- Me, too.

I think I'm gonna spend a lot of time there,

enjoying baguettes

and freshly-ground espresso.

Hey, let's do that together.

Paris would be a good mother-daughter trip.

Oh, count me in. I would love it.

I love you, Anna.

I love you, too.

Sleep tight, ladybug.

Okay, good night.

Good night.

Okay, honey.

It's okay, it's okay. Oh!

Oh, sweetie.

Oh, my gosh.

Oh, Lord.

Oh, my baby.

Oh, sweetie.

Do you think it was something

from the barbecue?

We all ate the same things.

You know, maybe you should run her

by Dr. Sponder's in the morning.

- Okay?

- I'm okay.

There you go.

Watch your feet there.

I need to be better for the aquarium.

You will be, honey.


Let's get you to bed.

I'm gonna sit with you.


Why are you still up?

- Is it about Anna?

- Mmm.

Anna's gonna be okay.

It's probably just a bug.

The doctor will give us somethin' for it.

I just feel anxious.

About what?

About everything.

The kids, the house, your business.

- The kids? Come on, the kids are fine.

- Hmm.

Well, my business is gonna work.

Oh, babe, you say that like it's absolute.

Now, this may take a while,

but it'll be okay.

It'll be okay.

It's a good life, Christy Beam.

It's a good...

It's a good life, Kevin Beam.

I hope this gastroenterologist

can get to the bottom of this.

I checked him out online.

He's supposed to be one

of the best in Fort Worth.

Well, good. He better be.

He's the third guy we've seen.

- I want to get this figured out.

- Mmm-hmm.

How's your book, ladybug?


Well, everything looks okay.

- It does?

- Yeah, I've gone through
