Preachers Daughters:  I think Lifetime got it Right!


“Preachers’ Daughters,” premiered on Lifetime revealing that ministers’ kids endure the same if not more obstacles as everybody else struggling to raise teenagers as Christians living in a secular world.

“Preachers’ Daughters” follows three families — the Perrys, the Koloffs and the Colemans — headed by pastors, whose daughters, the network promises, “balance the temptations every teenager faces with their parents’ strict expectations and code of conduct as influenced by their faith.” (When the Perry’s unwed teen daughter has a baby, that’s one thing. But when she admits, during the first episode, that the paternity is in question, Dad realizes it’s time for some heavy-duty prayer.)

We got introduced to one teen mom who does not know who the baby daddy is, one daughter who wants to be free to run the streets and another who just wants to date a guy who reminds her of her daddy.

Meet Taylor:preachers-daughters-porn-star
Eighteen-year-old Taylor is set on pushing boundaries established by her strict father, Ken, a pastor of City of Refuge Pentecostal Church, who, following the mistakes he made with his older children, wants nothing more than to keep Taylor as his little angel. Taylor craves freedom from all of the rules in the house and occasionally rebels by sneaking out, kissing boys and giving into temptation, all the while trying to maintain her relationship with her Lord. While her mother Marie tries to keep the peace between Taylor and Ken, she fears his stern rules will push Taylor to act out even more, especially when she gets to college. Conflicted and frustrated with her father’s demands, Taylor confides in her half-sister Kendra, who Ken kicked out of the house when she was pregnant at 20.
Withe the surge in reality tv, why in the world would producers leave The Religious institution out of play. I think we are going to see a lot more Christian reality shows coming our way in the next year.

Meet Kolbypreachers-daughter-daddy's-girl
Kolby is a fun-loving, curious 16-year-old ready to start dating, but quickly discovers it won’t be as easy as she thinks since she has not one, but two preacher parents. Her father, Nikita, a former professional wrestler-turned traveling evangelist who often gives sermons to thousands of parishioners at a time, has his own struggles with Kolby’s adolescence. Meanwhile, her mother and Nikita’s ex-wife, Victoria, a Christian preacher who hosts a faith-based radio show and is the director of two pregnancy centers, carries a no-nonsense approach to talking to teens, including Kolby and her friends, about sex. With three older sisters—Teryn (30), Tawni (28) and Kendra (20)—Kolby leans on them for support and guidance on her life, particularly when Nikita and Victoria become too overbearing and embarrassing.

Meet Olivia:preachers-daughters-babby
Olivia is an 18-year-old teen mom who, after partying hard, using drugs and drinking in high school, dramatically changed her life after the birth of her daughter. While trying to balance life as a young single mom, Olivia relies heavily on both her family and her faith, especially when she questions the paternity of her baby. Her father Mark, pastor of Everyday Church, and wife Cheryl, lead a hands-on approach to parenting, but often rely on prayer, rather than discipline, for their daughters. Olivia’s sister Emily (20) lives in Los Angeles, where she works as a model and faces temptation as part of her lifestyle and career, while oldest sister Audrey (23) never went through a rebellious phase like her sisters are facing.

With the wave of christian reality shows popping up revolving around preachers kids, I have to say this one appeared to have more substance to it than I thought it would. The show depicted what each family has to deal with and while it is hard for us to believe that pastors go thru the same type of struggles raising children, the truth is, they do!

The show did not appear to me to have a lot of scripted drama (at least not yet) It really surprised me, I think Lifetime might have gotten it right and I think  I am going to actually tune into this one each week.
