Best quotes from Oprah and T. D. Jakes’ LifeClass at MegaFest 2013

Oprah & TD

For the first time in its nine year history, T. D. Jakes brought MegaFest to his hometown of Dallas. So it was only appropriate that he invited mega celebrity Oprah Winfrey to do what she does best, inspire. Winfrey and Jakes partnered to bring Oprah’s LifeClass to MegaFest 2013 on Thursday, Aug. 29. They collaborated to bring one of the most powerful experiences on record to a crowd of more than 50, 000 people. The two sat down and literally had a conversation with the audience. Winfrey and Jakes discussed a sobering statistic that 1 in 3 children are raised without a father in the household.

“We’re talking about filling that void,” said Jakes. “It begins with relationship, intimacy, and giving back.”

Rolling out was there to capture a few more of the best quotes:

To the ladies: “Love your man as you love your son.”

To the ladies: When your man opens up and confides in you, “Never use what a man tells you against them. If you do, they will never be open and share with you again.”

To single-parent mothers: “Don’t let the pains of your relationship with the fathers of your children prevent your children from developing a relationship with their fathers.”

“Children need to know for themselves and hopefully these men are better fathers than they were partners”.

“you will never know if you don’t give them a chance.”

To fatherless children who are attempting to build a relationship with the absentee father: “Try to understand the wounds of your father.”

And to the fathers who are trying to connect to children after being absent: “Create a floor for your child’s love to stand on.”

The entire session will be aired on OWN, date still TBD. So stay tuned and check your local listings. It’s one you don’t want to miss.
