The Olympian hurdler has been vocal about her faith in Christ. Now, together with her husband, they use their platforms and influence to share the love of God.
In one of the pictures Andre posted on his Instagram, he revealed his wedding shoe with a verse engraved. He chose 1 John 4:19 to symbolize his love for the 22-year-old athlete. “We love because He first loved us.”

Christ’s Love for the Church
The former University of Virginia receiver also captioned their wedding photos with a prayer of what their marriage should look like. He said, “May the success of our marriage not be gauged by fame, fortune, or flash. But by submission to one another, a supernatural unity, and the pursuit of reconciliation for others.”
It can be remembered that Andre also promised Sydney that they would love as “Christ loved the Church” on the day of their engagement. The complete statement said, “May we never love one another cautiously, but instead always be eager to love one another extravagantly, in the manner that Christ loved the Church.”
Indeed, Andre is bold in his faith in Jesus. And he is not ashamed of letting everybody know that he is a follower of Christ. As a result, Sydney loves him even more for that.
She shared, “Andre, you are the most God-fearing, passionate, honest, loving, hard-working, protective, and genuine man I’ve ever met. I see Jesus in you. And as a result, it makes you so easy to love.”
There is nothing sweeter than a couple with Jesus at the center of their marriage. May the newlyweds’ romance last on and represent the fiery love of Christ for His Church.
