THE MUSIC-LOVING COX FAMILY BACK TO THEIR BRAND NEW HOME
"Cox Family" - For years John Cox traveled worldwide to help churches and organizations. Meanwhile, to support her dedicated husband's endeavors, his wife, Wendy, quit her job as a nurse to stay at home and care for their three young daughters. When he received a permanent position as a youth minister, John was able to buy his family their very first home. Now their humble abode in Simi Valley, California, has received a complete renovation and been transformed into a real dream house, courtesy of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," airing TUESDAY, AUGUST 17 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

In addition to the many changes to their home, the Cox family, who enjoy inspirational music and sing together whenever they get the chance, were amazed when award-winning singer LeAnn Rimes greeted them with a musical surprise as they returned to their totally renovated home.
