In Forecasts and Faith: Five Keys to Weathering the Storms of Life, WLBT-3 chief meteorologist Barbie Bassett takes you behind the cameras for not only an intimate look at the fast-paced, high-pressure world of broadcast news and meteorology, but also the life of a true Mississippi survivor whose faith has kept her steady through every storm life has brought her. From the earliest days of her humble beginnings in the small Mississippi Delta town of Marks, Barbie's strong faith has given her a rock-solid foundation and supported her through not only the births of her three beautiful children, but through the tragic loss of a child...through her vastly successful decade at highly rated WLBT, and the anger, hurt, and confusion she felt during her year in broadcast exile...and through the weather-related storms she's lived through in her personal life: the deadly tornado that ripped through her Madison, Mississippi, neighborhood in 2001 and the far-reaching destruction of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Through it all, you'll get to know a strong, intelligent, devout lady who was taught to give back in her youth and is passing those ideals along to her children while setting a sterling example for her community.
