Leyicet Gokey, Danny Gokey’s wife, shares with us a moment of struggle and what she’s learned about God.
About Danny Gokey:
Music feeds the soul and few people understand its power better than Danny Gokey. His young life has been a rollercoaster ride and music has been his constant companion. It sustained him following the death of his first wife, Sophia, and it propelled him up the charts after the world discovered his talent on American Idol. Music has shaped his life, providing a sense of purpose and direction, even in the most trying times. Learn more about his new album, Hope in Front of Me.
About Sophia’s Heart:
The creation of Sophia’s Heart Foundation was inspired by the life of an extraordinary woman whose love for children overflowed and touched the lives of countless others. Sophia was a very outgoing woman who, despite her heart condition, remained full of optimism, energy, and selflessness. During her vibrant and meaningful 27 years of life, she relayed the importance of meeting the needs of children emotionally, spiritually, and mentally.
After her passing, the mission began to develop her legacy, and to share the heart she possessed, through a living continual demonstration of her love. Sophia desired to be the mother of a large family. Although this was never realized in her lifetime, the love she had for children could not cease from existing. Her husband Daniel felt the pressing need to pass along the love they both felt for all children, and thus he became the vision for Sophia’s Heart Foundation. He hopes the number of children they are able to reach through his vision will be larger than they ever imagined.
