The former couple teaches us how to love with vulnerability, transparency, and grace.

The beginning of a New Year calls for a celebration! Let’s shake off all of those negative vibes! Instead, this year let’s take strides to create everyday routines that will better you over time, and make a lasting lifelong impression. SHEEN Magazine’s January/February issue is dedicated to celebrating yourself through health and life goals. “Restoration is the theme of 2019– taking what was, and molding it into something not new, but more reflective of who you really are. So let’s celebrate the transformation of you!”

Love is transformative– it involves ups and downs, and our cover includes Grammy Award winner and Destiny’s Child alumni, Michelle Williams and sports pastor, Chad Johnson once a couple in merriment. In this moment, we’ve decided to celebrate two amazing individuals and their journey. We loved their story of real appreciation for one another while accepting that sometimes love includes parting ways. The inspiring former couple is a living testaments of love, healing, and restoration as illustrated through their OWN show, Chad Loves Michelle.


“Most of the songs I’ve written or sang on, I’ve really experienced those things, so people have heard my reality, but now you get to see my reality.” –Michelle Williams


“We hope that the show brings hope, but at the same time we hope that it brings strength to the viewers because it’s real, and we’re very open and honest about what we’re going through, and what it takes to bring two lives together between two people who both have their own careers and have been single for 40 years.”–Chad Johnson
