“The uber photogenic [Tannehill] believes you date to marry, sends her 25-year-old husband Bible verses before games and attends Dolphins’ wives Bible study…
Lauren Tannehill struggled to stay true to her faith during high school but solidified her footing in college, leading Bible study sessions during her junior and senior years and forming a base of like-minded girlfriends.”
