Gospel singer Tina Campbell is celebrating 15 years of marriage with her husband, Teddy Campbell, after a tumultuous year in the public eye.

Tina, the 41-year-old singer from the gospel music group Mary Mary, who wrote the book I Need a Day to Pray and released the album It's Personal last May, publicly dealt with the death of her father and husband's infidelities simultaneously in 2013. Since then, the pair have been vocal about God helping them overcome their struggles.

The singer insists that she and her husband are living proof that modern day miracles still happen.

"I know God opened up the Red Sea for the children of Israel; He kept the three Hebrew boys from getting burned up in the fire; He kept Daniel from getting eaten by that lion, but He also kept Tina and Teddy from a broken marriage and He did it in one year," Tina said during an interview with The Christian Post back in November.

"That is a modern day miracle. So anybody who can come to experience that God is still doing miracles, God is still proving Himself, the Bible is still real and it can still work in your life, I would think that anybody can be encouraged by that."

Still, the singer has not shied away from admitting she's had to overcome struggles in the wake of her husband's infidelities.

"Initially, I lost my way, and I said 'forget this faith thing it doesn't work. I pursued vengeance and I was going to get him back and everybody back and make the world understand they should have never hurt me,'" Tina revealed on the Fox talk show "The Boris and Nicole Show." "I crashed, I cursed, I attacked, I drank myself to sleep. I was miserable."

Her husband, however, said he made the decision to fight for their marriage.

"In the moment where I did all of this to her, I was like, 'OK, either I'm going to run, like I normally did, or I'm gonna rise up and I'm gonna stand up and be the man that I know that she needs,'" Teddy said on the talk show.

Tina has been candid about her personal struggles for some time and previously said she's willing to share her testimony, no matter how difficult, to help encourage others.

"Part of my testimony, my willingness to speak about the difficult times, comes from the joy I have in the knowledge that it was God who saved me," she previously wrote on the Yahoo! Music Instagram page.  "I want to let those feeling as low as I once did know that if He brought me through, He will bring you through! #OnlyJesusDidIt."

Although Tina did not initially intend to create a solo album or book, she previously spoke to CP about how overcoming her marital struggles helped her solo projects come to fruition.

"I went through my challenges that I went through last year with infidelity. In the process of writing journals to God, I ended up writing a book that I didn't know I was writing," she told CP. "Once I finished, God started downloading all of this music into me and I knew that God gave it to me to give it away."
