5 Amazing Marriages I Follow and Lessons I’ve Learned.

Happy Friday guys!

I’d love to tag today #CoupleCrushFriday

If you read my blog then you probably already know that I’m a “family person” but you may not know that I’m a “love person” too.

I love Love.

Everything you want has a model. No matter how “new” your dreams seem, there’s always someone who has done something similar, someone you can look up to and learn from while you input your own peculiarity.

I have couples I really admire and follow faithfully. One of which is my parents; I’ve learnt love, sacrifice, prayer and humility from them so my major couple crush are my parents.

Outside home, I have quite a number of people whose marriages are a representation of what I think marriage should be and I thought it right to share some with you guys.

For each couple, I’ll share at least one lesson their marriage has taught me.

1. Pastor Toure and First Lady, Pastor Sarah Roberts :

Whoever knows me very well would have predicted this before they even saw it. Sarah Jakes Roberts is the daughter of Bishop TD Jakes.

Sarah Jakes is my role model for many reasons, the major reason is that I share A LOT of peculiarities with her. I’ve followed her life for some years now and I greatly admire her so it was only normal for me to fall in love with her marriage with Toure.

There’s a whole lot to say about her and I hope to make a blog post about her, soon. Touré Roberts and his wife Sarah Jakes Roberts are co-pastors of One Church L.A. Touré has been named one of America’s top 100 influencers under 45 by He is the author of Purpose Awakening.

Their first date was a unique and amazing one. Sarah narrated; “He picked me up at my hotel and I remember that from the moment that I saw him when I got off the elevator I felt vulnerable and naked. Not naked like he’s looking at me, but naked like, I don’t think I can hide anything from him. There is something within me that wanted to be the truest version of myself with him. There was something that made me feel safe. Everything from him watching how I came down the stairs to him opening the door for me at the restaurant, it made me feel like for the first time in a very, very long time, I could be a soft, feminine, dainty woman and fall into the arms of a real man that could hold me down.”

Lessons: Toure and Sarah have taught me love in spite of flaws and failings. They also taught me that there’s no one who does not deserve to be loved. From them, I’ve also learnt the power in getting a partner who knows the Word and prays.

Toure’s line for asking Sarah out was “I want to serve you” that’s enough lesson for the guys. Selah.

Finally, I learnt how important it is to honor your partner. Toure always listens with rapt attention when Sarah speaks and Sarah does likewise; no room for familiarity.

2. Capt Tunde Demuren and Tolu (Toolz) Oniru : Captain and his princess tied the knot in 2016 and I’ve always admired what they share.

Lessons: I’ve learnt the power of money (lol). Love is sweeter when you and your husband are rich ? .

I’ve learnt the power of relationships! Captain and Toolz have friends in “high places ” hehe.

They support their friends all the time; at weddings and functions, no wonder they have this wonderful string of connection with almost everybody.

3. Timi and Busola Dakolo : Do I have to talk? I mean, everybody loves them!

Lessons: Don’t choose anything over your partner, not even career. Be proud of who you married. Be yourself with your spouse.

4. Pastor Sam and Pastor Nike Adeyemi :

I honor this couple a lot. Anointing and wisdom.

Lessons: If their vision don’t marry yours, don’t marry them!

5. My future husband and I ???

Lesson: Follow God and the right people and your marriage will be heaven on earth.

Have a great weekend guys!
