Brian had a life-changing experience when he worked with Christine McFadden, a guest whose ex-husband murdered her four children while she was out on her morning walk.

"The whole intention of the show was that she survived this, and her message reached out to a lot of people on the show," Brian says. "But it meant even more to me than just that. Christine gave me a picture of her children, and for the last six years, I've carried that picture in my wallet every single day of my life. The idea of why I carried the picture was to remind me not to sweat the small stuff because, if Christine could survive this, I could get through anything. And I think so can anyone."

Brian still keeps in touch with Christine, and he says she is doing much better. "She's gotten remarried and had twins, which is amazing," he says.
