“I don’t know if there are any secrets to
having a good marriage besides making a binding commitment that you are
in this thing for life and that no matter what happens, you will stay
in the marriage to work it out. Like every marriage, we have had our
ups and downs, but with the help of God and a remembrance of our
commitment never to leave each other, we have stayed together. Every
marriage has its issues, so I encourage people not to envy another
couple; whether you see them on TV, on Sundays only, or on social
media. Commit yourself to learning about your partner and making your

angle where people begin to count the months from the minute the pastor
pronounces you man and wife. If you are delivered of a child before
nine months, you’re in trouble. If you are delivered of a child after

later, we still had no child, but we had faith that we would have
children. Forty-eight years ago, my father and mother had been told
that they also would not be able to have children due to fertility
issues, but I stand here today as a testimony that God gave them
children, and that was why I believed that we would also be able to
have children. The process we went through from that time to now is
enough to write a book on, and in the next year or two, we will.
However, the testimony is that God gave us three sons naturally outside
of medical interventions. I would like to encourage anyone who has the
same issue to trust God and be patient. The same God that did it for
us, will do it for you. He can work with IVF or other medical
procedures, or do it miraculously; just know that He will do it for you.”
