𝓢𝓱𝓮 𝓼𝓪𝓲𝓭 𝔂𝓮𝓼! 💍⁣ ⁣ I’m happy to share the exciting news about our engagement today! My fiancée @judgefaithjenkins is known to many of you as the beauty with (a whole lot of) brains. She is indeed that & much more!⁣ ⁣ Faith, I am forever grateful to God for His faithfulness in sending me you. To say you are the total package is a vast understatement. You are powerful and passionate about life and yet your presence brings me so much peace. Your drive and ambition never cease to amaze me and your heart is filled with love & empathy for others. Everything you do on and off tv is done with dignity and grace – it’s why you’re an inspiration to so many, including me. I posted my song “Deserve” last week as it says everything about us that I feel. “We have something so rare … you don’t deserve the wait any longer. I’m ready to make you mine forever.” ⁣ ⁣ I’m honored you said YES to our forever! ⁣ ⁣ A special thank you to Aaron & Adrian Lindsey, Pastor Brian for our pre-engagement counseling, @Devonfranklin for you & Megan’s friendship and leadership with #TheWait, Jaumel Farley (for helping with my proposal surprise) & our family & friends for your tremendous support.

Mahalo 2018 🌺. Here’s to having 365 brand new days to live our best lives, to stop facing reality and start creating it, to give, learn, love, travel, grow, change, forgive & forget. 💫 Every challenge you’ve faced is preparing you for what you asked for .. so look for the lesson in it, be grateful & set your intentions higher than ever before. – I made a vision board for the first time in January & Ive watched some of my biggest goals come to life with people I’d placed on my board who I had no previous contact with.. before this year. Nothing just happens. When you’re willing to put in the work, see obstacles as opportunities to grow, believe all things are possible and *stop all the negative inner conversations* you’ll be unstoppable. What are your intentions for 2019? Take time to write them down. Trust the process & enjoy this journey. The best is yet to come! xo

Some personal news: I’m engaged! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣Many of you know @kennylattimore as an incredibly talented vocalist and while I couldn’t be more proud of his legendary work as an artist — to me (and all who know him personally) —- it’s who he is on the inside that makes him a star. His beautiful spirit has captured my heart. ❤️⁣ ⁣⁣ Kenny: you are one of the kindest, most genuine souls on the planet. I’ve never met anyone like you. In a world where I was told my standards were too high, you came in my life from day one & exceeded them all! You made me thankful that I refused to settle. You showed me the essence & integrity of true love. The first time you took me by the hand to lead us in prayer I knew this would be different. And I was right. (just remember, I’m always right 😆) You embody all I’ve ever wanted in a life partner. And on top of it all you’re an amazing dad. ❤️⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ My husband to be… ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I always knew you existed 😩😆 ⁣⁣ ——————————————————⁣⁣ THANK YOU: Pastor Brian for our pre-engagement counseling (‘The Meaning of Marriage’ was an awesome read!); @Devonfranklin for you & Megan’s leadership with #TheWait (Devon we’re so happy about your role at our wedding!); @aaronlindsey (we love you! More to say about Aaron soon :)); & our family & friends for your prayers & support. ⁣⁣
