Past Relationship

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.

At the age of 14, Sarah was pregnant with a mystery man; this news dropped like a bombshell in the Jakes family.  Shocked, emotionally devastated, and crushed from the inside were Sarah's parents, but they didn't hold back. Instead, they came out strong above the trauma. 

Her father, T.D. Jakes, the bishop of The Potter's House, told that press had flooded around the church to further report on the incident. However, he refused to answer any of the questions saying it was a personal matter. It was neither about being embarrassed nor being conscious about his image, it was for the welfare of his daughter. 

Sarah's father proved love overrides everything. 

When asked if she had let her parents down, Sarah said that she did. She knew they had high expectations, and now she is cautious of making any wrong decisions.

"No matter what you have done, there is always a way back in the right path," said Sarah.

Although her pregnancy brought difficult times for her family, she felt it was the best thing in the world because she got to know how much her parents love her. 

After all the hardships, Sarah welcomed her son Malachi Jakes.   

Sarah had her first daughter, Ren Taylor Roberts, with Touré and then welcomed their second daughter Ella Roberts on10th February 2016. 

From the couple's previous relationships, Sarah had a daughter Makenzie Henson with Robert Henson, who is now 11 years old, while Touré had a daughter, Teya Roberts, and a son, Isaiah Roberts (born 2002).
