Bishop T.D. Jakes: Mind, Body & Soul

Posted: Updated:

"I think I'm gonna be able to really talk to people about who they are and who they are inside". That's T.D. Jakes describing how his new talk show will be much different than the other ones out there. "T.D. Jakes Presents: Mind, Body & Soul" premieres on BET this Fall.

The Bishop also talked to Steve and Maria about who his biggest influence was growing up...and still dictates what he does and how he does it to this day. He also talks about what he calls "a challenging time" these days for parents and their children and how "you can't make a withdrawal if you haven't made a deposit". Aside from the new show, Jakes will also be sharing the stage with Oprah Winfrey next month at "Megafest".

He's also behind a new movie about the life of Winnie Mandela, starring Terrence Howard and Jennifer Hudson. It hits theaters in September.
