While speaking to an OWN “Life Class,” Hollywood producer and Christian minister, DeVon Franklin, revealed that he almost missed out on the love of his life due to his unwillingness to budge on his “no dating actresses” rule.
“When it came to love and it came to dating, I said I would never date an actress,” he can be seen telling the audience in footage captured by Sister 2 Sister.
Using his story as a cautionary tale to singles, he went on to discourage them from limiting their chances of finding lasting love by refusing to be open to possibilities.
“What if your greatest blessing is lying on the other side of the very thing you keep rejecting because you don’t think it looks like what you want it to look like?” he asked.
“The fastest way for something to happen in your life, is just say, ‘Ill never do it,’” he continued.
Interestingly, Meagan has also admitted that she wasn’t really interested in marrying a minister, yet they still wound up together.
“I wish there was somebody in the house who knew that there was power in the patience…If you just wait, God will do it,” DeVon went on to say.
