Last Christmas, Steve says his wife Kelly put Oprah's DVD on her wish list, and although he was embarrassed to be seen buying it, he got her the six-disc collection. "She was excited to have it, and then the words came...the ones I didn't want to hear," Steve remembers. "'Hey honey, you want to watch Oprah with me?' I thought, 'Oh crud. No, I don't.'"
Kelly put in the first disc, and before long, Steve was hooked. "There are so many things on it that were so touching—that were beneficial to me," he says. "I thought, 'Wow, that's good stuff!'"
Even when Kelly left to run errands, Steve continued to watch. When she came home from the grocery store, she caught him on the couch—with a beer—watching Oprah!
One Oprah moment really caught Steve's attention. In the clip, author Toni Morrison asks parents an important question: "When a kid walks in the room—your child, or anybody else's child—does your face light up?"
