On her journey, a number of grass-roots organizations touch and move her in amazing ways, including Casey Cares Foundation, a group that helps sick children and their families cope with illness, The Rose Street Community Center, which provides community and social services to combat violence and homelessness in the East Baltimore area, as well as Movable Feast, a non-profit organization that provides meals and food to people who cannot provide for themselves.

After spending a week in Baltimore, Beiler shares the surprise of a lifetime with these philanthropic organizations, on the Season Premiere of "Secret Millionaire," SUNDAY, AUGUST 4 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Anne Beiler began twisting pretzels in 1987 to support her husband's vision to offer free counseling services in the Amish community where she grew up in rural Pennsylvania.

What began as a single farmer's market stand grew into Auntie Anne's Inc., the world's largest hand-rolled soft pretzel franchise with more than 1,200 locations worldwide. In 2005 Anne sold Auntie Anne's and authored Twist of Faith, a revealing look at her life as a wife, mother and entrepreneur.

Today she is a highly sought after public speaker, inspiring audiences around the world. She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, Jonas, and is the mother of two daughters and proud grandmother of four grandchildren.

Based on the hit UK series of the same name, each episode of "Secret Millionaire" follows one of America's most successful business people for one week as they leave behind their lavish lifestyles, sprawling mansions and luxury jets, conceal their true identities, and go to live and volunteer in some of the most impoverished and dangerous neighborhoods in the country.

Their mission is to discover deserving individuals who continually sacrifice everything to help those in need, and ultimately encourage others to do the same. Throughout this incredible, life-changing experience, the Secret Millionaires attempt to remain undiscovered, coming face to face with extraordinary people battling the odds every day of their lives.

On the final day, in an emotional and dramatic climax, they reveal their true identities. Ultimately, the millionaires each give away a great deal of their own money, changing lives forever and encouraging others to keep giving back.

Have you thought about the difference between trust and integrity? Integrity comes from within. Trust is between people.

Learning to Trust In God
There is a scripture that I love. It says, “Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart.” (Proverbs 3:5 KJV) Why do you think it says, “ALL your heart?” Can we trust half-heartedly? I don’t think it’s possible because a heart divided creates confusion. My own experience with a divided heart brought about heartache. Anytime I didn’t trust someone, I ha...

Dealing With Loneliness After Change
Change always takes you to a “new thing.” During change, we often grieve the death of what was and seldom perceive the new opportunities change can bring. We begin to feel loneliness because of change. You may have heard the line, “The only thing constant in life is change.” Many years of living verifies this truth to me. I heard this first when...

Today, I’m continuing my thoughts on loneliness and sharing about loneliness after abuse. Psalm 40:2 (NIV) says, “He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire…” Abuse of any kind makes you feel like you’re in a slimy pit. The loneliness that follows creates a challenge to stay fully alive after your spirit has been crushed. Many pe...

The Cure For Loneliness Is Connection
Psalm 40:1 is a verse that speaks to me about how God sees and hears us in times of loneliness. It reads, “I waited patiently for the Lord; He turned to me, and He heard my cry.” (NIV) We wait for God to see us, hear the longing of our soul, and the sighs of our hearts. The loneliness I’m talking about today is when you’re falling apart right in...

Your Emotions Are Stronger Than Your Will
Your mind tells you what you think. Your will communicates what you want. Your emotions express how you feel. When I first heard that idea from Dr. Richard Dobbins, I had no clue what he meant. All I knew at that time was that I was an emotional wreck, and I had no idea how to find my way through my feelings. My feelings were like a tangled web ...

It's Okay To Admit You're Not Okay
How many times do we ask someone in a day, “How are you?” What response do we get 99% of the time--”I’m fine.” I’m sure many of you understand how tiring it is to act okay and always be strong when in reality, you’re close to the edge and ready to jump. Admitting you’re not okay is very different than whining about all the things that have gone ...
