The joy of restoration is what two Christian reality stars are publicly promoting after nearly suffering a public marriage collapse.
“I love how God uses my husband's testimony to bless men who want to be better men,” wrote the 41-year-old wife on Instagram, where she posted snippets from Teddy’s testimony shared at an Atlanta church.
“I thought I was gonna lose everything—you know my wife, my kids and just everything,” her 40-year-old drummer husband, whose multiple affairs became public in 2013, told congregants at Tabernacle of Praise, shepherded by his friend T.J. McBride.
“So I felt like, well, I tried it my way and I didn’t do that right. So let me actually really try God this time,” continued Teddy, former four-year percussionist for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
One day, while privately confessing his adulterous ways, according to Teddy, his pastor “challenged” him by saying the unfaithful spouse’s actions indicated that he was a believer in Christ, but not a follower.
“Followers imitate who they’re following,” Teddy quoted the convicting words, which he compared to a smack in the face.
The jolting revelation proved helpful for Teddy, who has since launched a men’s Bible study, recommitted his life to Christ and renewed his vows to Tina.
Now the newly devoted husband is publicizing his mission to give all of himself—mind, body, soul and – to God.
“When you got saved, your body didn’t get saved and your mind didn’t get saved. You’ve got to submit your body a living sacrifice. You’ve got to renew your mind. And that’s what I didn’t do,” he said, with Tina standing off to the side.
Realizing the error of his ways, Teddy said he told his solo artist wife, “I’m sorry I was irresponsible with my thoughts. I didn’t cast down every vain imagination and command it to be obedient to the knowledge of Christ. I didn’t do that.”
That was then; this is now. The musical pair have since started fresh and aren’t shy about telling everyone.
“See, almost 3 years ago all I saw was a dark depressing pit that I landed in, but now I see a miracle man, a miracle woman, and a miracle marriage,” said Tina on Instagram, adding, “God is awesome and His Word transforms lives.”
