It's no secret that Hollywood marriages tend to buckle under pressure, but Tamera Mowry and her husband, Adam Housely, have leaned on their faith to strengthen their nine-year-marriage.

The "Sister, Sister" actress has been candid about how she was saved and found her faith when she was only eight years old and at the same time, her husband's relationship with God was evolving as well.

In an episode of their YouTube series, "The Housley Life," Mowry and Housley opened up about how their individual spiritual journeys led them to each other as adults.

Mowry recalled that when she and Housley started dating, her faith was weak. She admitted that although she had extensive knowledge of the bible, she felt more inspired by Housley's strong faith.

The couple also took pre-marital counseling, which helped put their relationship with God into perspective. Now the couple seeks answers from God and the bible when they have difficulties. Mowry added:

"If we're going through difficulties...oftentimes, Adam will say 'alright let's just stop, think and let's pray.'"

While the couple grew up from different denominational backgrounds, they eventually found a common church for their family. Mowry admitted that she transitioned from her pentecostal background to non-denominational like her husband.

The Housley couple actually credits the church for bringing them back together after they broke up. The couple took a break from dating for about a year to make sure that their relationship had been ordained by God.

The "Seventeen Again" actress famously revealed during an episode of her former daytime tv show, "The Real," that she remained celibate during the three years before her marriage to the Fox News correspondent.

The decision to remain celibate came after losing her virginity at 29 years old. Mowry said that she felt guilty and waited until she and Housley tied the knot in 2011.

Nine years into their marriage, the couple's relationship is still sustained by God. They continue to nurture their faith through various means. Mowry divulged:

"I think its' really important to read devotionals, you know, watch sermons, go to church and read your word. But the most important thing is prayer."

The couple prays with their two kids, Aden, 8, and Ariah, 8, and make an effort to live a life that sets a good example for their impressionable kids.

The duo also credits their faith for getting them through hard times such as when they lost their 18-year-old niece, Alaina Housley, who died in a California shooting in 2018.

Mowry also opened up about losing her grandmother, who was 89 years old, whom she says taught her about faith and encouraged her to carry on the legacy of faith.
