Flip My Life Episode 5: Redeemed

Season One

Chaos strikes the renovation project, with police called to the Flip My Life house twice in one week. But that’s daily life on Driftwood Avenue, and Rick and Marybeth struggle to accept that the kind and helpful neighbors on Driftwood have to live with the daily threat of crime, when they live in a neighborhood where they can leave their doors unlocked. And they explore the concept of redemption through the story of DeAndre Brown, founder of the Lifeline 2 Success re-entry program. 18 years after release, he’s won local and national awards for helping others build positive and productive lives. But in a tearful confession, he opens up about his deeply buried fears that who he is will also be overshadowed by what he did. What does it take to reach real redemption?
