Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood Pass Out Bibles, Build Homes for Low-Income Families

By Movieguide® Contributor

Country music singers Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are handing out Bibles as they lead Habitat for Humanity’s work project in place of former President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Roselynn.  

Due to the 99-year-old former President’s health decline, this will be the first time in 35 years that he and Mrs. Carter will not take the lead on the annual project. 

“We are here to honor their legacy and continue the work that they are continuing to do; just because they have retired from this project and are at home does not mean that they are not here, so we feel very lucky and very fortunate to still be a part of what they stand for,” Brooks told CNN.

Habitat for Humanity helps low-income families afford new homes. Each new Habitat for Humanity homeowner is given a Bible along with their house keys. This year, Brooks and Yearwood will hand those out instead of the Carters. 

Brooks shared why he believes the Bible is an important part of the tradition. 

“The blessing is they’re getting freedom to move into their own house. With that, it’s going to become trials, even though there’s good celebration it becomes trials,” Brooks told CBN. “If you’ve got that Bible, you’ve always got that foundation you can start over. If you’re at rock bottom, there’s the Bible. If you’re on top, there’s the Bible.”

“I think it’s as much a foundation as the floor you’re standing on in your house,” Brooks finished.

The country music couple first volunteered with Habitat for Humanity over 15 years ago. 

The organization is grateful for its star volunteers. Habitat for Humanity shared that the couple first volunteered to build the “1,000th and 1,001st post-Hurricane Katrina Habitat homes on the Gulf Coast” and have been back every year since. 

Movieguide® recently reported on the couple’s secret to a happy marriage:

“We’ve been at it for almost 18 years,” Yearwood said of their marriage, according to GMA…

“People thought well, two celebrities who are in the same business, they won’t last,” she said. “I’m invested in this family, this is what I want for myself and no offense to anything else in my past, but I get it, I get it now and this is what I want. So we just earn it. Day by day.”
