Parent Compass chat with Cameron & BJ Arnett

Parent Compass recently came out with this video that is a must see for any parent.

It is a chat with Cameron Arnett (the movie star who played the blind man in the movie Overcomer) and his wife BJ. Hear how he got out of torment: “It impacted me drastically. I turned from one man to next.”

The Arnetts also touch on their children, and how they told them of their mistakes, so they didn’t have to make them. This is in Cameron’s children’s book called A Good Man – A Child’s “I Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda!” The story is available at

Cameron tells, “I was 20 when I received Christ for the first time, but I went to a church that taught me how to get saved every Sunday, so it never really taught me how to live. So for five years, I was in torment, because I loved God, I had a conscious now, but I didn’t know how to live for God. So I still lived how I lived before, and I was dying on the inside for five years. At the end of those five years, I met Christ for the first time and got converted and all those things, and it changed me forever. It impacted me drastically. I turned from one man to next.”

Among playing the blind man in the recent Kendrick movie, “Overcomer”, Cameron is an award-winning actor in television, film and theater. He has appeared on about every major network; in NBC’s Miami Vice, Fox’s Star Trek, ABC’s Doogie Houser…. Cameron’s wife, BJ, also, is an actress, speaker and producer. Together they powerfully share the critical answer to their difficult lives before God, including divorce to now in all parts of “Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda to Can, Shall, Will.”

Ken Leaman has a passion for students, and for over 25 years has been volunteering within churches, leading and mentoring students.  These churches are:

Ken is a Director of Enterprise Data Management at IHS Markit, which is a multi-Billion dollar information company. Ken has also served on the board of another non-profit called DFW HDI, which is a membership organization of IT support professionals.  

Ken, and his wife Karen, have been married for 26 years, and have a 25 year old son.  They live in McKinney, TX, just North of Dallas.

As Ken and Karen repeatedly witnessed many Christian students who were active within the Church walk away from their faith shortly after graduating high school, they grew frustrated.  Studies show that about 70% of young adults leave their faith after graduation, which is a huge issue since they are the future of the Church.  After much prayer and searching God's direction for many years, the Leaman's felt His calling to start a ministry to address this problem.  In 2014, they gathered like minded Christian professionals to help begin Young Adults of Worth Ministries.  We believe that this ministry is from God, and it will be blessed by Him for His glory alone.
