Houston residents showed up for a conference at Higher Dimension Church last week ready for The Answer.
The 2nd annual “The Answer Conference”—Before You Say I do and Still I Do was a two-day event held on Feb. 26th and 27th and hosted by the leaders of the house, Pastor & Lady J. It also featured a bevy of talent who graced the red carpet.
Names like Mc Lyte, Slim Thug, David & Tamela Mann and Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child were on hand the first night to provide guests with valuable information through panel discussions and entertainment. The conference is an extension of the book “Answer” written by Terrance and Torsha Johnson (Pastor & Lady J) and it is about finding answers to common relationship questions through the word of God. The Johnson’s share personal ups and downs of their long-standing marriage in the read.

So what were some of the thoughts from the celebrities on hand about The Answer?
“If you are single act single if you are married act married,” says Lyte who started the night’s festivities with live spinning. She showed the crowd she has it still musically and it was evident when a group of women stopped in the foyer to dance the ‘whop’ 80’s style.
David and Tamela Mann’s take on relationships dealt with blended families. “Our family is blended, but you would never be able to tell because there is so much love,” says the couple. And Houston’s own Slim Thug performed his hit song “Chuuurch.” He described the experience as one he will always remember. The chart-topping song features Joel Osteen, senior pastor of Lakewoodwood church.
Others in attendance were executive producer of The Yolanda Adams Morning Show, Marcus Ecby, The Musician Wives, Jonathan Sprinkles, Professor Carlos Wallace and Dr. Irishea Hillard.
One of the conference’s sponsors Prudential held a panel “Prudential’s Money, Relationships and Common Cents,” which consisted of Jonathan Sprinkles, Mc Lyte, Jamar Jones, LaToyia Dennis and Dr. Yulonda Griffin. Guests were advised during this part of the event on how to make their money WORK!
Day 2 of the conference included speakers Ashley Turner (First Daughter of Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner), Nephew Tommy and others. Topics for day touched upon “Being Single,” Money, Sex, & Love,” and a financial panel.
