Faith comes in with sticky buns, which makes the family happy. Hope stops them from eating and tells Faith that she's trying to get them to eat better.

  • Hope and Faith

    I have seen funnier commedies than Hope and Faith. I found it quite stupid at times but I have to admit I laughed in some places. I have already figured out that Faith is going to be getting into some sort of trouble each episode and Hope is going to get her out of it.
