Monica Wright, the championship winning WNBA guard, has revealed that God helped her overcome criticism for breaking things off with former fiancee and fellow ball player Kevin Durant.
Durant, the 26-year-old Oklahoma City Thunder forward, made headlines last year for being engaged to Christian Wright, the 26-year-old who won the 2013 WNBA Championship with the Minnesota Lynx. While both basketball players have been vocal about their Christian faith, Wright recently spoke to Risen magazine about God helping her through the process of breaking up with Durant.
"Yeah, in my last relationship, I had to make a decision about compromising myself as a woman. I had to make a decision to leave a relationship, which a lot of people thought I was crazy to leave," Wright told Risen magazine. "There was a lot of criticism over it. But I think God had my back in it. Because I hold to what I know to be true, that is what God will reward instead of what people on the earth think is a good catch." more >>
