When you are living your life you never know where it will take you or who you might end up spending your life with. We always have preconceived notions of what we want and who we want but what we want is not always that important when someone bigger than you has a different plan and purpose for your life. Such is the case of Jemal and Michele.
A chance meeting at a medical building changed everything. Two lost and hurt souls whose damaged perception of love were brought together. How was this supposed to work? We found out that it wasn’t for us to figure out. When God has a plan, we are just supposed to obey. With all our baggage we decided to get married two years into our relationship. I can see God looking down laughing because we surely didn’t know what we had signed up for. What a journey it has been. Fifteen years later we stand as living testament to what God power can do. Still a work in progress we press on through it all.
Throughout the years it had always been on our hearts to open our doors to other couples, to be able to have fun, host game nights, etc. We never followed through because of our own hang-ups. We finally decided to press forward October 2016. We have always wanted to see other couples succeed and be an encouragement to them. Coupled4Life was birthed with that vision in mind.
As we live life we have witnessed what a bad relationship can do to ones spirit. We often bring so much baggage into our relationships that they are unable to grow. It is our prayer and mission to help get rid of some of those bags through the use of food, fun, and conversation.
We firmly believe that with complete unity with God and each other we can overcome any obstacle. We were placed on this earth to dominate the culture with LOVE.
We believe that stronger couples mean stronger families, stronger families mean stronger communities, stronger communities mean stronger cities, stronger cities mean stronger states, stronger states mean stronger countries, and stronger countries mean stronger nations. In a time where it appears most are out for themselves we believe there are still those who believe in LOVE. Though we may go through our trials as couples we still must be an example in the world we occupy.
Together, we won’t quit because we are Coupled4Life!
A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.
