According to Eurweb.com, the pastor says he misses his wife, Malinda Sapp, who lost her battle with colon cancer in 2010. Says the gospel singer:
“There are days when I get up and I cry, thinking of her. There are days thinking of her and I smile…There are days when I’m angry. Days that I’m not… we miss her.”
Marvin Sapp and Malinda Sapp headed the Lighthouse Full Life Center Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan right until her death in 2010. In spite of the sad circumstance of his life, Sapp will share his life story, with the world in the reality show, which has already started filming.
The show will be produced by Open River Pictures and it is still scouting for a network.
Tammy Williams, CEO of Open Rivers Pictures has been vocal about the importance of viewers seeing an African America family with an African American man as the head of the household, saying:
”I count it a privilege and an honor that Marvin entrusted my company to document the second chapter of his and his kids, ML, MiKalia and Madisson’s life. I think it is timely that the country sees a man, especially an African-American man, who is serious about family values and raising his children.”
In an interview with EEW Magazine, Sapp spoke about the show saying:
”This is about a family man who really believes in family teaching his children core values along with trying to manage a successful business and a career as well…God’s good, so I am just going to keep it moving.”
