00:17 Welcome to "Magnify Him." My name is Duawne Starling.
00:20 And I'm Yvonne Lewis. Thank you for tuning in.
00:22 Once again we're honored to be able to present to you
00:25 artists who are focused on lifting up the name of Jesus
00:28 through their gifts and on this program
00:30 it is by way of the gift of music.
00:32 That's right, Duawne.
00:34 And the focus is never on the gift.
00:36 The focus is on the gift giver.
00:39 The songs you'll hear
00:40 will truly lift up the name of Jesus.
00:42 So stay tune.
00:44 There's a special blessing in store,
00:46 so come magnify the Lord with us.
00:49 Magnify the Lord with me
00:52 Magnify Him
00:58 You have no idea how excited I am
01:00 to introduce someone who is like family to me.
01:03 So I'm gonna have to try to be objective
01:05 when I talk to my friend Margaret Richardson.
01:08 Marge, welcome to Magnify Him.
01:11 Thank you so much.
01:12 We're so happy that you are here
01:14 and you're such a blessing.
01:17 Good to be here.
01:18 Tell us how 'cause for our viewers
01:20 who might not have met you before,
01:21 tell us how you began singing?
01:24 Well, I come from a musical family.
01:27 I'm number six, born to Etalon and Margaret Humphrey.
01:30 And my mom being a pianist, cellist herself,
01:35 more or less trained us to sing in formal way.
01:39 We sang as a family group.
01:41 And my earliest recollections were
01:44 standing on the stage in front of 5,000 people
01:47 at age four or five and singing in public
01:51 with her as my pianist, and it was a wonderful thing.
01:56 So since then have you-- had been at ease when you sing,
02:00 are you nervous when you sing like because to stand at four
02:04 before 5,000 people is incredible.
02:08 I mean, where do you go from there.
02:11 Well, I have sung in front of 20,000; 30,000.
02:16 It's been quite a ministry
02:18 just knowing that the Lord has given me my voice
02:21 and to be able to use it from Him,
02:23 I've always said as long as He keeps giving me breathe,
02:26 I will use it for Him.
02:27 Yes. Yes. And what an anointed voice you have.
02:31 You know, I've known your family
02:33 since we were children
02:35 and you and my sister were best friends
02:37 and your sister and I are close to an age
02:40 and so we've always known each other,
02:43 and one of the things
02:45 that I love about you, Marge, is your sprit.
02:48 You have this anointing, this voice as instrument,
02:51 Beanie too, your sister Edwina your sister as well.
02:55 I know lots of history here.
02:58 And you just have this humility about you
03:01 that you know that God's given you this instrument.
03:04 How do you keep humble
03:07 and this is not to really pump you up,
03:09 it's really to magnify Him.
03:11 How do you keep humble knowing that
03:14 He has blessed you with this instrument?
03:16 Well, I think because knowing the God that we serve.
03:20 He is awesome, He gives us the talents,
03:23 so we ought to give them right back to Him
03:25 or to use them for Him.
03:29 Assuredly as He has given them to us,
03:31 He could take them.
03:32 So as I use them for Him, I know He will replenish
03:36 and give me more talents.
03:38 There are lots of things that I do for Him.
03:40 And you know what?
03:42 It's obviously in your family
03:44 because your daughter is also an artist
03:46 on Magnify Him this season.
03:48 And how do you feel
03:50 when you watch your daughter minister?
03:53 It's an amazing thing.
03:54 I just feel like the Lord has been with us
03:58 all through my life and to watch as,
04:02 you know my husband and I,
04:03 we've been married 30 years now.
04:04 And to see our children grow
04:07 and use their talents for the Lord,
04:08 it's just is an answer to prayer.
04:10 It's an answer to prayer knowing that
04:12 their focus is also to do His will
04:15 and to have a ministry. It's an interesting thing.
04:18 My sons who are twins, they have chosen to do things
04:23 in ministry on their own when they were little.
04:27 The youngest twin chose to learn Chinese
04:30 because he plans to go to China to be a missionary.
04:33 The other son who is--
04:35 he is a ministerial student at Oakwood University.
04:37 He learned Hebrew on his own and learned Hindi
04:41 because he plans to go to India,
04:43 and they learned, they did this on their own.
04:45 You have slouchy kids today.
04:47 My goodness. My so. And that's amazing.
04:51 To see them actually doing what God has chosen them to do.
04:55 And I did not suggest these things,
04:57 they're doing it on their own.
04:59 All three have the ability to preach,
05:01 my daughter as well.
05:02 Praise the Lord.
05:04 We know that you're going to be so blessed
05:06 as you listen to the anointed voice
05:10 of my friend, my family Margaret Richardson.
05:15 She is using her gifts and her talents
05:18 to magnify our great God
05:21 and her children are doing it as well.
05:24 Listen and be blessed.
05:34 At times the road is heavy
05:38 At times the road is long
05:42 When circumstances Come your way
05:46 And you think you can't go on
05:49 When your feeling At your weakest
05:53 Jesus will be strong
05:57 He'll provide the answer
06:00 When you found all hope is gone
06:04 He'll find a way
06:10 For I know that if
06:12 He can paint the sunset And put those stars in place
06:19 I know that He can Raise up mountains
06:23 And calm the storm-tossed waves
06:27 And if He can conquer death Forever to open heaven's gates
06:33 Then I know for you
06:36 I know for you
06:40 He'll find a way
06:52 And at times Your heart is breaking
06:56 With a pain that's so intense
06:59 And all you hold A broken pieces
07:03 To life that makes no sense
07:07 He wants to lift you up And hold you
07:11 Mend each torn event
07:15 He'll pick up the pieces
07:18 that you thought had all been spent
07:21 He will find the way
07:25 O yes he will
07:28 And I know that if
07:30 He can paint the sunset And put those stars in place
07:36 I know that He can Raise up mountains
07:41 And calm the storm-tossed waves
07:45 And if He can conquer death Forever
07:48 To open heaven's gates
07:51 Then I know for you
07:54 He is gonna see you through
07:58 For I know that if
07:59 He can paint the sunset And put those stars in place
08:06 I know that He can Raise up mountains
08:11 And calm the storm-tossed waves
08:14 And if He can conquer death Forever
08:18 To open heaven's gates
08:21 Then I know for you
08:23 He is gonna see you through
08:27 He will find a way
08:33 He will find a way
08:39 And if He can conquer death Forever
08:44 To open heaven's gates
08:46 Then I know for you
08:49 He is gonna see you through
08:53 He will find a way
08:59 He will find a way
09:16 And one day it is my prayer
09:20 that as we enter the gates of heaven
09:22 and we finally see our Creator face to face
09:27 that this too will be your experience.
10:09 There was a holy hush all over
10:12 As I walked into the room
10:16 And I stood before Him face to face
10:20 I was gloriously made new
10:23 There was a great And awesome presence
10:27 The light bright as the day
10:30 And as I bowed to kneel With the angels
10:34 I heard the Spirit say
10:39 All rise!
10:43 All rise!
10:46 To stand before the throne
10:50 In the presence of the Holy One
10:53 All rise!
10:56 All rise!

11:04 All Rise!
11:13 As I looked at those around me
11:17 With their hands uplifted high
11:20 The Spirit laid His hand on me And I uplifted mine
11:27 We were singing Halleluiahs Praises to His name
11:34 And as I bowed to kneel With the angels
11:37 I heard the Spirit say
11:42 All rise!
11:45 All rise!
11:49 To stand before the throne
11:53 In the presence of the Holy One
11:56 All rise!

14:06 Magnify the Lord with me
14:09 Magnify Him
14:15 Here on Magnify Him,
14:16 we love it when we have families
14:18 that offer their gifts to God.
14:20 And today, we have the Richardson Family.
14:23 We're so blessed to have you.
14:24 Welcome to Magnify Him.
14:26 Thanks so much. Thank you very much.
14:27 Welcome. Welcome.
14:28 You know, I would like to start off with,
14:30 I would say the Matriarch of the family.
14:34 You know, because we look at your children here,
14:37 they are poised,
14:40 I can see their relationship with you.
14:44 And I would like to know how did you nurture them
14:47 as they were growing up?
14:50 Well, one thing I-- As God is love.
14:53 Love was the emphasis of raising my children
14:56 in everything they did, even while they were little.
14:59 I encouraged them to love one another
15:01 as opposed to fighting or things like that,
15:04 that was just unheard of in my house.
15:06 But love among the family,
15:09 I helped them to be the way they are.
15:11 So you didn't have regular sibling fights.
15:14 No. No.
15:15 And brothers,
15:17 all of them together never fought,
15:19 they always loved and talk to each other
15:21 and you know, everything could be worked out
15:23 with the conversation. Right.
15:25 I mean we had our disagreements but...
15:27 Never fight. Yeah, never, never that.
15:30 And not just brothers but brothers that are twins.
15:32 That's right.
15:33 Who is the older? I am.
15:35 Are you the wiser?
15:38 Well, we like to come to the conclusion
15:40 that I know certain things that he doesn't know
15:43 and he knows certain things that I don't know
15:45 so we call it even.
15:47 That's a good compromise. That was a good answer.
15:50 I love that.
15:52 So being the only girl,
15:53 are you also like a second mother
15:55 to your brothers?
15:57 Yeah, I guess mom called me mommy's little helper
16:00 when I was little and... Now she is mommy number two.
16:03 Oh, mercy. Well, normally they hold it together,
16:07 I mean we were at Oakwood together.
16:08 We were all in school.
16:10 And I had to learn to turn that off
16:12 'cause they're grown men now.
16:13 You know, they take care of themselves
16:15 and they remind me on a regular basis.
16:18 That they can handle themselves
16:20 but we'll look out for each other so.
16:22 So career wise, are you still in school now?
16:24 Yes, we are. Okay
16:26 What do you study in Oakwood?
16:28 As of- for me as of right now
16:30 I'm undecided but I plan to go into geography.
16:34 Oh, excellent.
16:35 Geography. That was my worst subject.
16:41 We just want you to know
16:43 that when you see families like this,
16:47 you know, that God has touched them
16:49 that they have made God the center of their lives
16:53 and we hope at Magnify Him that you will do the same thing
16:56 as you listen to them minister, just listen to the words
17:01 that they minister to your spirit
17:03 and know that God's presence is ever with you.
17:08 May God bless you.
17:11 Sing them over again to me
17:15 Wonderful words of life
17:20 Let me more of their beauty see
17:24 Wonderful words of life
17:28 Words of life and beauty
17:33 Teach me faith and duty

19:51 This next song is actually a medley,
19:53 and it's going to take us back apiece as it starts as a hymn
19:56 talking about the holy, holy, holiness of God,
20:00 and how we're going to sing songs to him
20:02 and then it bridges into another song
20:05 that talks about the holiness that we desire to have
20:09 that Christ has called us to be.
