Bravotv.com: Can you tell us a little more about your morning routines/affirmations?
Ben:I have a daily regimen that includes 5 am basketball, prayer for 30 minutes, and vision boarding (looking at my color vision board and reciting the different goals). My new book is called Faith It ‘Til You Make It: Making Your Future Hear Your Voice. It goes into details on making daily declarations so I guess you could in a sense say I "wrote the book" on it. 

Bravotv.com: What did you think of Brooklyn’s decision to run the marathon?
Ben: I'm a "crawl before you walk" sort of guy. How can you finish a marathon when you don't EVER work out and you have not even done a "mini-thon"? I was concerned about Brooklyn pulling a muscle. I teach my kids to be big thinkers, but I never want them to overdo it and do something that may cause them to hurt themselves. The last time Brooklyn ran in anything, Moses was crossing the Red Sea.

Bravotv.com: And of her lack of preparation for the race (including signing up for it)?
Ben: Brooklyn is not one for details, so it is totally believable that she registered late.
