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

She added,

I have built my ministry and identity around being the best wife and a mother I can be. For quite some time I have tried to steer through some serious troubles at home. As much as I wanted my marriage to last, it cannot.

The motivational speaker's former partner played in the linebacker position for the Washington Redskins in NBA.
