"I was a single dad to a daughter and I prayed not for material things but simply for a wife and a mother figure for my daughter. Well, my wish was granted when I met my wife through a chance encounter on Facebook, I immediately knew she was the one from our very first conversation.
"My wife was a single mom to a son, so we joked that we could be the African American brady bunch with fewer kids. Upon dating my wife immediately added value to my life and vice versa."
According to Willis, his wife was praying for a husband, too, so their meeting was a divine one.
"Our second date was a church date and I left church that day knowing that I needed to buy her a ring in the near future. We dated for 11 months before I asked her to marry me and got married a few months later," he added.
