James Fortune and his wife Cheryl are the latest cover story for “Gospel Today” magazine’s May/June Issue. In the publication’s summer “love” issue the couple share their powerful love story of survival and strength. The Fortune’s recall the most difficult time in their marriage -the season of being homeless. However, the Fortune’s didn’t allow their lives to be defined by that narrative and have thrived since that trying time. The Fortune’s have enjoyed a burgeoning career along with successfully launching their own record imprint F.I.Y.A World Music in conjunction with Light Records, under which Cheryl’s solo album will be released next year.
The May/June Issue of Gospel Today hits news-stands next week, and will also be available online at www.MyGospelToday.com.
ON BEING HOMELESS:
“To realize that I was having a hard time providing for my kids, in the midst of this family struggle proved a difficult, dark time in my life.”
ON BUILDING A SUCCESSFUL MARRIAGE:
“There’s nothing you can’t overcome in your marriage when you put the Word of God first. Endure. Don’t give up. It will come to pass. All of the promises and the dreams, it all does come if you’ll endure and be patient. Pray together and keep loving each other through adversity.” -Cheryl
“Sometimes the two of you won’t know what God is doing, but you have to trust God in everything. Let the Bible be the final authority. We don’t always agree on everything, so we have to let the Word of God be our standard in how we operate in marriage.” -James
