John Gray really believes in this “spirit of a wife” versus “spirit of a girlfriend” thing y’all. Earlier this year, Ciara caught flack after she shared a sermon from the Lakewood Church Associate Pastor in which he said too many women want to be married but are walking around in the spirit of girlfriend. (It probably didn’t help that Ciara added the hashtag #LevelUp) to her post.) But Pastor Gray told Letoya Luckett the same thing last year and, well, she got a husband honey.
Letoya and Tommicus Walker will appear on this Saturday’s episode of The Book of John Gray on OWN which was taped before the two walked down the aisle this past December. Letoya had appeared on the show before, expressing her frustrations with being a single woman. But this time around, the singer was all smiles next to her then-fiancé as she talked with Gray and his wife Aventer about him telling her Tommicus was the one and how she needed to act accordingly.
“You are what we prayed for,” Pastor Gray says in the clip below, pointing a finger at Tommicus. “That God would give her the love that she deserves.”
That’s when LeToya shares in response:
“You said you are in the season to be a wife. You are a wife so stop carrying yourself like a girlfriend. He said this one won’t take long.”
And it didn’t. LeToya and Tommicus became engaged in August of 2017 after meeting earlier that year. John Gray told the couple they’d be married before the end of the year and that’s exactly what they did, tying the knot on December 10 in Austin, Texas, at the Villa Antonia.
“God sent me my angel in Letoya for sure so I’m definitely happy about it,” Tommicus told the Grays, much to Aventer’s delight.
The couple goes on to talk about wedding planning ,with LeToya proclaiming “This is what partnership” looks like. But I still need a little clarification on what the spirit of a wife looks like and what it means to walk in that when you are still a girlfriend. FYI, we’ll be talking about that on our new talk show on MadameNoire next Friday so stay tuned.
For now though, check out this clip from The Book of John Gray and tune in to the full episode Saturday, April 14, at 10 pm ET/PT.
