DaMont & Selikka Wood are both DMV natives. While DaMont is an only child, Selikka is the 2nd of 5 children. In 2006 Selikka and DaMont met at a mutual friend’s card game and went on to become "movie buddies". In 2007 they began exclusively courting one another and "sealed the deal" on May 12th 2010 by getting married. They currently reside in Upper Marlboro, Md and enjoy life with their 3 beautiful children Saije, Dylan, Blaise. They testify that their marriage has been nothing short of amazing due to some non-negotiables that they have incorporated into their everyday lives. Fulfilling God's purpose for their marriage, establishing boundaries to protect their relationship, intentionally dating one another weekly, and remaining committed to building bonds and memories with their children has been their top priority and has truly blessed them beyond what they ever could have imagined.
