'It Really Does Make a Difference'

In the following video clip, Tori Bates, 19, shares how touched she was to receive a letter from a young girl who prays for her daily and is uplifted by the family's television show. "It's so worth knowing that people are encouraged and challenged to look to God for their strength," says Carlin Bates, age 17.

  6. Was just on the Up tv site and they had this same clip of Tori above on their site. It stated that Bringing Up Bates will begin on Sunday night, October 11, at 7:00! Elsewhere on the site, it stated that Michaela's weddiing will be featured during this next series of shows! Yay! In order to see the starting date, click on Tori's window. You don't need to post this. I just wanted you to know. Please check it out.
