Aired on 04/29/2017 | CC tv-pg
Pastor John Gray is called in to speak with Gwen, a middle-aged woman who has taken in three young children and raised them as her own. Over the years, she has also faced serious health challenges: two heart surgeries.

"I'm overwhelmed by your sacrifice," John says. "Why haven't you given up?"

"I can't" she says. "I mean, sometimes I feel like I want give up, but I just have to keep going to make sure the kids and everyone are okay."

Here, John realizes that he must convince Gwen to make herself a priority instead of only helping others.
