Bishop Jakes’ Daughter Announced She’s Divorcing

Sad to hear, but according to a personal message posted on her website, Sarah Henson, the daughter of Bishop TD and Serita Jakes, shared that after much prayer and consideration she has decided to end her 4 year marriage.

Here is what she posted back on August 29th…

I have built my ministry and identity around being the best wife and a mother I can be.

For quite sometime I have tried to steer through some serious troubles at home.

As much as I wanted my marriage to last, it cannot.

After professional counseling, and prayerful consideration I have decided to end my four-year marriage.

There are biblical grounds supporting this decision and I have attempted every other recourse but after multiple infractions over the course of the union, and for my personal safety and that of my children, I have come to this painful decision.

Now that it is made, I would ask for privacy while I navigate through this difficult season in my life so that I may now concentrate on being the best parent for my children possible.

Thank you for your prayers.

Our Prayer are with Sarah and her family through this painful time.
