Breaking News: God Has a Plan is a detailed account of Fox News host Harris Faulkner’s experience with a stalker – an ex-boyfriend who threatened her life – and how her faith got her through the ordeal and brought her a better understanding of why things happen the way they do.
From Breaking News: God Has a Plan:
A front-page article in the Kansas City Star ran Thanksgiving weekend in 1995. The article told readers about a landmark case involving a local news anchor and a man who had stalked her and threatened her life for months. The case challenged Missouri’s anti-stalking law for the first time in Kansas City. And the subject matter of the article whetted the taste buds of hungry talk show producers and Hollywood filmmakers who had learned of the trial after a national press wire service picked up the story.
Suddenly, I’d gone from being a newscaster to a news maker. And I had to find a way to deal with the new public pressure for me to talk about a situation that had ended in the courts, but not in my heart. Saying no to the talk shows and filmmakers was easy. My life had been spinning out of control for so long, I wasn’t about the hand over the reins to somebody I didn’t know. And truly, the people I wanted to talk to were others like me, specifically women who had endured being tormented by a stalker. I reached out to small victims’ advocacy groups in Kansas City and cities elsewhere in the nation. That was me crawling back to a steady, safe place. Now I’m walking, telling my story in my own voice in hopes that my experiences may shed some light or hope for anyone who’s surviving tough times. When people look at me, they see the face of success and happiness. And beneath it is the soul of someone who knows a harsh reality – bad things happen, and no one is exempt. The lesson for me was that those bad things and the good ones are part of a plan – God’s plan.
