Che “Rhymefest” and Donnie Smith — Celebrity Honorees
Length of marriage: 6 years; February 24, 2010
Number of children: Total of 3 with more planned in the future.
How you support each other in your careers: We support each other in our careers by constantly reminding ourselves that when we got married we “tied the knot.” That means that no matter how tight the world, circumstances, etc. may pull, our knot will only get tighter. Additionally, while we are madly in love, we understand that God sent us here for a special assignment, and it is our job to constantly remind each other of that reality…We truly desire to make each other better human beings and that trickles down to every area of our life.
Why they were chosen: Rapper Che “Rhymefest” Smith, the Grammy-Award winning artist and writer (best known for his writing contribution to Kanye West’s “Jesus Walks”) and blogger and non-profit executive director Donnie Smith are modern day inspirations. The two show us honest and personal accounts of how couples can stayed grounded and support each other’s growths despite the outside pressures.
