TD Jakes, America’s most famous Black Preacher passes the baton to his daughter who became pregnant at age 13
Sarah Jakes Roberts, daughter of American mega church pastor, bestselling author and film producer, Bishop T.D. Jakes and Mrs. Serita Jakes, author, media personality and business executive.
She became pregnant at Age 13, while her father delivered a sermon about the virtues of abstinence, Sarah was growing a baby at such a young age.
In 2018, she announced that she is divorcing her linebacker husband, Robert Henson after four years of marriage .
She had to drop out of college, worked as a waitress at a strip club to support herself, got married at 19, got a divorce at 23 and left with two children to take care of.
Sarah Jakes Roberts in April 2014, wrote her first book, a memoir titled, “Lost and Found: Finding Hope in the Detours of Life”, in which she told her captivating story of survival and triumph after facing some of life’s most challenging obstacles. In sharing her story with openness and honesty, Sarah inspired others all over the world to remain hopeful in times of hardship.
Sarah did go through a tough life which was from the kind of choices she made as a teen.
She went ahead to create the “woman evolve” ministry with the aim of reaching out to women who were stuck in their past mistakes and refusing to move on like she did years back.
On September 25, 2022, her father took a step back from the pulpit and handed over the church ministry arm “woman evolve” to Sarah who was at one point a lost and hopeless woman.
We can pick up one or two life lessons from Sarah, more particularly, the phrase “woman evolve”. Often times than not women are the ones that hold themselves back due to one or two awful experiences from the past.
It is time to let go, move on and evolve into that beautiful and shinning star you are.
Sarah is strong woman
Congratulations and good luck Sarah!🥂
