“I love my job and I love the people that show up at my job,” Pierce says. “But lately we have navigated through personal pain, tragedy, grief and depression together. This time around, I’m feeling stronger. I can breathe again and laugh harder! And oh, what fun we are about to have!”

Featured are real estate entrepreneurs and identical twins David and Jason Benham, who lost an HGTV contract because of their stand for biblical marriage; former Arkansas Gov. and U.S. presidential candidate Mike Huckabee; Newsboys frontman Michael Tait; and Dove Award-winning singer and songwriter Danny Gokey. A variety of professionals including school teachers, comedians and others are also interviewed in the film.
