T.D. Jakes Daughter: “I am…teen mom, divorcee, preacher’s kid”

By Nomalanga Mhlauli-Moses

On her wedding day, it’s hard for any beaming bride to imagine that her joy could turn into despair and sorrow in just a few years. For Sarah Jakes, it was only four years before she had to face the sad reality of divorce.

Now Sarah is ready to open up a little about how she is overcoming her recent divorce. In August, the daughter of mega-church pastor, Bishop T.D. Jakes, made an announcement, through her blog, that she was ending her marriage after only four years.

The 24 year old mother of two who leads the Women’s Ministry at The Potter’s House in Dallas wrote:

“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.”

A little over a month after what must have been a very painful announcement to make, she has written another blog post sharing how overcoming her own hardships has opened the door for her to give a testimony to other Christians.

In her latest blog post, she wrote,

“This time last year I was preparing an introduction for my father at Woman Thou Art Loosed that would change the very essence of who I am. A year later and I have experienced many highs and lows, but I haven’t faced anything as devastating as who I was before I gave in to that small still voice. I, nor anyone who knows me, would have ever imagined that I would stand before a crowd and speak from the heart about who I am, what I’ve done, and how God used me anyway. When I spoke last year at the conference I spoke about what I did and what happened TO me, this year I will stand a living testimony about what I discovered was IN me.”

Even though her divorce from her NFL free agent husband, Robert Henson, has been a painful and challenging experience, Jakes feels that it is important for her to share her story. She went on to write,

“A part of trusting Him, for me, means being honest with the people He has placed me in front of… From the moment thousands heard my reality or read my blog there has been one consistent message: transparency… It is the desire of my heart to always remain the most authentic version of myself, to never lead a life that suggests there was no need for the blood shed on Calvary. I will not choose to live a life where I lead people to a God, I can no longer access for myself. I truly believe his strength is made perfect in my weakness. I will constantly live a life displaying my weakness and vulnerability so I can tell you about the strength of our God.”

The Bishops daughter was courageous enough to speak of all her shortcomings and shared that she had been redeemed by God even after her decisions in life, writing,

“So here I am….teen mom, divorcee, preacher’s kid, daughter, sister, book lover, writer, chef, part-time comedienne, smart mouth, mother, friend, food lover, and television enthusiast…good and bad this is what I have to offer… I may look like a mess on paper, may not be much to look at yet, but He still trusts me with this genuine message. I am not perfect, I am not always right, I do not always handle things the right way, and I have certainly had my fair share of struggle, but I am redeemed.”

I applaud Sarah Jakes for speaking so honestly and sharing her challenging journey. Obviously divorce is an ugly process to have to endure and it hurts everyone in its path. That being said, I hope Sarah’s message can be the healing and encouraging word that someone who may be in the midst of a crisis needs to hear.

  1. Good for her.An example for young women that you don’t have to stay in a bad situation no matter what it may be.

    • Chicago WGN news just announced last night, that barack and eric holder justice dept just bought a prison near Iowa to lock blacks in and create 1000 good jobs for obama’s white iowa friends and relatives. that’s where his mom is from. he’s taking care of white folks on the backs of black prisoners. SICK! and he still asks for your vote. hitler did the jews like that.

      • Thankyou Brenda, I will check that info.

        • We should all know by now that everything that is shown or said on television is not true. Did you check this information out for yourself or just run to your computer and began spewing the poison. If we expect to be helped, we must first be responsible. Passing on information without validating it is irresponsible.

        • It’s official – ROMNEY WON THE DEBATE because:
          OBAMACARE:
          Doctors are ALREADY rejecting medicare because of obamacare taking $750 billion out of medicare. Seniors are already hurting with bigger out of pocket expenses because of obamacare.

          JOBS:
          Romney is our only hope of generating REAL jobs with real good pay. Obama’s idea of creating a job is buying a prison to hire white folks to guard black prisoners or to give govt money to build roads that dont need rebuilding.

          TAX CUTS:
          Unemployed people have no payroll taxes to cut.

          EDUCATION:
          Romney has already made massachusetts schools the number one in the country. While Obama’s hometown Chicago has the worse schools in the country.

          LAW AND ORDER:
          Again Romney is our only hope. Building up the military to fight drug cartels and terrorist is our only hope of security. You don’t want to end up like lil Beirut (AKA as southside of chicago)

          It’s a no brainer folks.

          • And you obviously don’t have a brain if you believe or even had the audacity to post that nonsense.

            OBAMA2012

          • Tina: I wish you had said that you have a plan for Mitt Romney that will change the game for Black folks. The recasting of the problem will not bring about change. I reviewed a website that displayed the list of White House employees and saw that Joshua DuBose, who was 26, was designated to be the liaison for faith-based programs arrived without a constituency to service is paid $100,000 per year to learn how to not do something. Remember how this stuff works. When Linda Tripp was the trigger in the Monica Lewinsky scandal with the President. She was a holdover from the administration of George H. W. Bush. Thousands of Black folks would have gladly opened mail in the White House for $67,000 per year, folks who has supported the winning ticket. The political process never pays Black folks off. We are told to understand that the system must take care of the losers so that we can get them on board.

            Another way to look at it is that Black military personnel do their 20+ but rarely are given the opportunity to join corporate boards and executive teams even though they have held superior rank and top responsibility. I recall General Fred Leigh who was the commander of communications worldwide for our armed forces, meaning for all allied armed forces, and MCI was collapsing but their Board of Directors could not see to summon General Leigh to get them back on track. In a word, our expertise is never valued.

          • MITT WILL KEEP AMERICANS IN THE POWER HOUSE!

          • Excited about Grad School!

            What does any of this have to do with Jakes’ Daughter??? Yall are Dumb Deaf and Stupid, and I can tell you are black, or else you would have read the content of this article and responded in this manner

          • Glad we live in a democracy. It is just a matter of time before haters like you will be silenced by the will of the people. Obama is not perfect but you seem to dismiss him as a lightweight. Romney is such a liar looking out for the rich, white America. It is obvious to so many. But have fun with your debate hype, it will die down and so will the misguided support for Romney/Ryan. Peace.

          • Beware folks, Romney operatives are everywhere! Romney pays Chinese labor to blog Bull Sh*t via on Black sites to discourage Black voters. What does this have to do with T.D. Jakes’ daughter?

            Your vote matters! If it didn’t, Romney and his operatives wouldn’t work so had to discourage you and attempt to keep you from voting! Don’t buy into the voter suppression! Many of us are the 47% who Romney expressly stated that he doesn’t give a d**n about.

            Obamacare:
            Millions will have access to quality affordable healthcare. 50,000 Americans mostly poor and minority die needlessly and prematurely due to lack of access to basic preventative healthcare and life saving treatments! Obama care corrects that!

            Jobs:
            After losing 800,000 jobs per month as a result of Bush’s failed policies President Obama is turning that around and the economy is recovering. Romney wants to take us back to fat cats get fatter, nothing for you! Unemployment going is down, opportunities are opening up. During the worst of the Bush Recession, President Obama fought Republicans to extend unemployment benefits. Instead of six months of unemployment benefits, some people got up to two years of benefits. President Obama has your back, have his, VOTE! Meanwhile, Romney’s companies continue to outsource jobs, close plants and send jobs to China.

            Tax Cuts:
            Not true, some unemployed people pay taxes on unemployment benefits. Unemployed people pay sales taxes, property taxes, personal property taxes. Some unemployed people pay a HIGHER RATE of taxes than Mitt “47%”Romney. NEWSFLASH! If you’re unemployed, you’re among the 47% Romney expressly stated that he doesn’t give a damned about! The REPUBLICAN congress refused to pass the President Obama’s Jobs Bill which will stimulate the economy and put people back to work. Ask yourself if tax cuts to the rich stimulate the economy and create jobs and the Bush tax cuts were in effect during the Bush Recession, how did Bush’s Recession happen? Want to fix it? Vote for President Obama! Vote out REPUBLICANS!

            Education:
            MA Schools were number 1 in the nation years before Romney took office. Romney wants to cut education funding, increase class size, cut Head Start and early childhood education, Cut Pell Grants, increase interest rates on student loans and bring the bankers that President Obama back into the student loan business to get their cut. More money to bankers, less to student who will pay back at higher interest rates. If you attend inferior, poorly funded schools, have no preschools and Head Start to prepare children for learning, and have no access to college or advanced training because your poor quality education doesn’t qualify you for admission or it is too expensive due to cuts in federal student aid and higher interest rates, you will not qualify for the good paying jobs coming available.

            Law and Order:
            Republicans, including Romney answer to crime is locking up low level non violent offenders in federal prisons for 29 years without an opportunity to become contributing citizens. Remember the federal sentencing guidelines 100 to one for powder and rock cocaine brought to you by law and order REPUBLICANS. Republicans cut school funding, early childhood education. programs that offer opportunity for people to work and lift themselves out of hopelessness and poverty and build for profit prisons! Why long distance charges damned near nothing but those same charges are $2.00 per minute when people are calling you from a correctional facility?

            Medicare/Medicaid/Social Security:
            All cut or phased out and changed to “Vouchers” under Romney. That means children, grandparents, the disabled, nursing home and home care patients. All among the 47%!

            Don’t buy the Buss s**t! Romney pays people to comment on Black blogs. The race is tight and they only have to discourage a few voters! Your vote matters! If it didn’t, Romney and his operatives wouldn’t work so had to discourage you or keep you from voting! You are the 47% who Romney expressly stated that he is not concerned about.

            Obama/Biden 2012! Mitt Romney 47%! Paul “Lying” Ryan 0!

          • You are CRAZY, Who cares we are not discussing polotics! Did your selfish, crazy behind even read the inspiring article about the young lady? Please go some where with your insanity besides here!

        • This is a lie to discourage your from voting or voting for President Obama.

          Beware folks, Romney operatives are everywhere! Romney pays Chinese labor to blog Bull Sh*t via on Black sites to discourage Black voters. What does this have to do with T.D. Jakes’ daughter?

      • TDJAKES Concubine

        BRENDA LAY OFF THE HENESSEY BEFORE YOU RESPOND TO BLOGS…. your comments are ridiculous. And by the way, BO’s mother is born and raised in Kansas and Hawaii.

      • what does that has to do with the topic at hand,(Sarah divorce)nothing.Like Mit has nothing to do in the White House!

      • Guess what Red Neck It won’t work we know what you are

      • On many occassions, we contributes to us been locked up. When are we going to encourage ourselves to do the right things. Instead of blaming other. I think charity they say begins at home

        • John, I think you need to reed Michelle Alexander’s book, “The New Jim Crow”. I consider myself an enlighten person, but this book taught me so many lessons about our brothers in prison. It will explain things that we never thought about or even considered. Every American should read it, because after all we are the ones who are going to have to turn this travesty around. We have work to do and to do it we will need knowledge of the facts. And, oh yes, we are going to have to fix black America. It is time for us to roll us our sleeves, because black people are “perishing for lack of knowledge.

          • Excited about Grad School!

            A book is only another opinion…….reading a book does not make it true…..

      • What does this have to do with this post?

      • Brenda, you are either a deranged, lying a*s b***h, or just f*****g stupid. Now, all of a sudden, just before election time, some stupid, paid, n****r informant, has found some ridiculous misinformation, that a black President, wants to do harm to his own people. You sound like a f*****g skeezer crack head. I, am also building a prison, and it’s for illiterate a*s, sellout n*****s like you. Why don’t you put a gun in your mouth, and pull the d**n trigger? Vote for Mitt Romney, or don’t vote at all. the only people that you will be hurting are black people, while your stinking black a*s will be rewarded with more crack, you dirty b***h!

      • you are crazy

      • Brenda, I think you should have one of those jobs right along those prisoners in IOWA. No need for an application, no interview, the job is yours and you can start anytime you want, the sooner the better and any shift you want. Matter of fact we’ll make sure you get all the overtime you want and we will make sure you get paid quadruple time with all holidays off. When can you start Brenda…Stupid a*s b***h.

      • Barack who???????????? I think you should probably investigate and really dig deep before posting so much nonsense!!!!!!!!!!

  2. We are all human and make poor choices. God knows our heart!

  3. She is human and she had struggles just as everyone else does!! God is going to bless her even more because she is willing to share her story and testimony with the world!!

  4. The Creator has blessed everyone with a “genuine message” it is revealed in our actions not in what we say with words.

  5. Young lady, you have a huge jump on life no matter what situation you have been in at your age, and your father gave it to you, he is rich.

  6. God loves you Sarah! You owe US nothing, but our Father your unconditional love. Keep trusting in the Lord as you come into your being in Christ. And may God continue to bless you and your two children.

  7. I can empathise with you. I experienced a divorce also.When children are involved it makes it even harder.A lot of people say they stay in a marriage because of the children.Ican to find this so untrue,especially for christians.The real reason one stay is the fear of what others will say,especially people in the church.The reason its not for the children is, the children know what is going on in the house.They know you are living a lie.This is know way to present yourself to your children.They need to know what life is all about and the parent is their first teacher.We send them mix messages about marriage when we TRY to LIVE a lie in the eyesight of man and really seeing what it is doing to our most valuable possessions.I learn this when I desided to divorce.I was very involved in my church and related closely to my pastor.I thought what would my church family say.Upon listening to a deaconess,whom I admired a lot, I would often watch her and her husband work inside the church,they appeared to be so positive.One day she shared with me, how her home life was with her husband(she was unaware I was considering a divorce)she talked of his outside affairs,them sleeping in separate rooms,ect.she ended with “I stay for the children”.This was the determining factor that help me file for my divorce.It show me she was living for others not herself nor her children,and there was a low case of self-esteem.You know and children know.You are only fooling yourself.I found out you can be a better paarent and christian if you do the right thing and living a lie wasn’t the right thing.After my divorce a number of member shared with me they were having a bad marriage,some as long as 30 years.I found this to be so sad.All marriages are not made in heaven.I found this out because marriage suppose to make you whole and miserable.I am proud of you and good for you.You, I and some others made the right decision.We show our children divorce is a part of life.It is a teaching moment.Yet one enter into it for a life time but sometimes it doesn’t work.However, life goes on.There is someone in God’s World for us all I believe.However there are lessons we have to learn before we can take the test of MARRIAGE. You are a role model for women.I AM PROUD OF YOU AS WELL AS MYSELF.As the song writer said “If it don’t fit Don’t FORCE IT”.Stay strong and continue to keep God FIRST as I am.

    • Sarah is a very strong, intelligent and God-fearing woman who was blessed to have family who loved her although she was not perfect. As a divorcee and mother of four, I know the decision to dismantle a family is not an easy task to do; however, I know that it is sometimes necessary. I applaud Sarah and wish her well as she continues to be the strong, young woman that she is. Please continue to let God use you to reach others who have found themselves in dire straits because they did not have a trusting relationship with God nor a strong sense of self. I only wish I had your strength when I went through my storms early in life. Maybe if I had talked about them openly, I would not have made the additional mistakes as I walked through this journey called life. Now, I can say that God has healed my spirit as I walk in His love as a senior citizen.

  8. @Brenda If you note that their is a lot of Black on Black crime and most of it is senseless. I am sure the whites are doing the same and those things don’t make the 6 0′clock news. If you will note the young black teenagers with their paints hanging down and men/women my age don’t want to see no one under clothes. This trend started in the prison system. That says a lot for our black kids. Most of the time when a crime is commited the person had been in jail or out on probation. If a prison is built and house those crimical that keep doing the crime it’s not because they are black it’s because they should be lock up and throw away the keys so that others don’t have to be a prison in our own homes and afraid to venture out and enjoy the enviroment.

    • Your most salient point, “I am sure the whites are doing the same and those things don’t make the 6 o’clock news. Read Michelle Alexander’s, “The New Jim Crow”, to become more informed. It’s currently on the best seller’s list, been there,I don’t know how many weeks. The sister has set out all the facts, facts that we all should know.

  9. Ms.Sarah Jake’s first I want to say thank you for your honesty and for coming out telling your story. Young women all over the world need to read this and take note but not only the young but women in general. You did not have to tell your story but you have done so and this will help some woman somewhere. Hold your head up high because GOD knows your heart and he already knew what was going to happen before you did but that is okay because your still standing. He will work it out. God bless you.

  10. Stop lying Obama didnt buy anything neither did Eric Holder go to sleep. Its Election time.

    • Thanks for calling the lie out. Instead of sleeping let’s Wake up. it’s election time! Don’t let them discourage us! Don’t let them supress out vote!

      Beware folks, Romney operatives are everywhere! Romney pays Chinese labor who speak English to blog Bull Sh*t via on Black sites to discourage Black voters. This is supposed to be about T. D. Jakes daughter. What does this have to do with T.D. Jakes’ daughter?

      Every vote matters! If it didn’t, Romney and his operatives wouldn’t work so had to discourage you and attempt to keep you from voting! Don’t buy into the voter suppression! Many of us are the 47% who Romney expressly stated that he doesn’t give a d*m about.

      VOTE! VOLUNTEER! ENCOURAGE OTHERS!

      Obama/Biden 2012! Mitt Romney 47%, 1040! Paul “Lying” Ryan 0!

  11. Obama didnt buy anything stop lying Its Election time

  12. Brenda stay focused, this article was not the issue to discuss prisons.

    Annie, thank you for sharing and for your wisdom. I heard many years ago from a minister that if you have done all you can do, on both sides, to keep your marriage together and make it work and it has not, then it just may be the thing to do to divorce and allow each other to be happy with some one else or be alone. I think that this is a point well taken! Bishop Jakes daughter was brave in telling her story and brave to put herself first and leave. Too bad because the bishop really did think that this was going to be a wonderful union for the both of them.

  13. I don’t understand or maybe I am missing something…Sarah is talking but to me still not saying anything. With two children, strong spiritual parents and counselors all around her that her marriage ended in divorce? Am I missing something?

    • yes you are missing something.you are missing the boat.no matter what you have, who your parents are, or your counselors being around you, it was about the husband and wife. you can’t buy love it’s like the old people say,it’s like the lighting bug, it got to be in you.

    • NO!

  14. Sarah, I applaud your resolve to do what you feel is right for you and your family. We all make mistakes, and no matter how public your life is, you have an obligation to your children and yourself to make the best decisions for you. I had to make the very same decision at one point in my life, and I thank God that He gave me the courage and wisdom to do it before my life became even more deeply marred in a devastating situation. Continue to pray for strength and guidance, and don’t allow gossip and the negatives spirits of the world to make you ashamed and fearful of doing what you know is right and the best course for you. Best wishes and prayers always. Theressa Wesley

  15. The best way she could actually prove to herself that she’s learned from this is by teaching her daughter and being honest about life, love, happiness and self worth. Stop the pattern before ut starts.

  16. I am so happy for you Sarah, you are really a pastor daughter not faking words for the crowd. God of mercy will continue to heal you of any pains that you have experience during your separation.

  17. First of all I want to say stay prayed up. God’s will be done. Secondly and lastly, what about the divorced husband??? Come on… We are missing the boat. I knew this young man. I helped recruit him to college to play ball. I’m not going to put his business on the street but he was very unstable when he received his scholarship. He has been through things that only a horror story writer could imagine. Things have happened to his family members that made me ask “Why God??? Why this kid???” I witnessed these things personally while he was in college after we knew what he already experienced in a younger childhood. His future wife at the time knew that. he had these bad habits before he married her. He is a good guy and that’s what she saw in him, but Faith without works is dead. This is a prime example of us thinking because someone is brought to church that they will be “fixed”. As Blacks we have got to stop this bafoonery. When you bring someone to Christ you have to work with them. It may not be an easy fix either. We can’t fix it. Only God can. Make sure we pray for him as well. He is the father of those children. Money or not, that personal time with their father can’t be replaced. He needs to be whole to set a great example for them. Grandfather can try, but he ain’t daddy.

    • CEM@ Your information was priceless! Now, we can see a lot more of the picture and additional instructions to so-called Christians. So many of our men have gone through these distorted childhoods without men there to guide them into bringing them into manhood. You did not say that there was not a father in his life–the assumption is mine–. In addition, there are too many loose women compounding the problems.

      Our women, church and otherwise, are dressing like streetwalkers. What are we thinking about? Excuse me, I forgot we aren’t thinking. But, you see the picture: Korean’s synthetic hair way down their backs, or blond heads, four inch shoes, dresses up to their, you know… nails too long to clean the proper places, and empty headed and hopefully with a big b**t to get a man? This begs the question, what kind of man are they looking for? Certainly, one whose attracted to this teflon woman is not thinking about bringing a man to manhood, or even being there to take a proper place in the family as a husband. There are many women out there who dignified and ready for the responsibility of relationships. I just think we have to put a little more effort into choices before bringing the children into these situations that we are providing for them.

      It is painfully obvious that many of our athletes are not getting basic instruction in life choices from their parent(s). It is so sad!

  18. She was 14 when she got pregnant. That’s not a easy feat. When she attended college she met her husband they fell in love her husband adopted another man baby. This sister is strong and relatable. You can’t have Testimonies unless you have test. I appreciate her transparency.

  19. norward p brodie

    What a testimony…God Bless you for you r a blessing to so many.. keep on telling your story. “no mony,with out a test

  20. I always preach/teach, you don’t know the things we preachers have to go through to be powerful and effective under the anointing.

    Transparency Is Good

    Preach Elder Brown~

  21. I do not mean to be judgmental but church clergy members and their daughters are usually the biggest s*x freaks. Her having been pregnant at fourteen does not surprise me.

  22. Tina Is in la la land she belives every word that can out of Mitt
    Romney’s mouth how missed informed talk Is cheat Tina you sound so stupid. you need to check the fact and then make a intelligent choice.

  23. If President Obama does not get reelected, black people, poor people, middle class people, latino people,asian people, african people, indian people,poor white people,poor jewish people,thought I would spell it out and make it clear for all cultures involved in voting. What you worked so hard for and all these years, you can kiss it all GOOD BY if Mitt wins this presidential election!

    Because of uneducated people and those who are undecided on how they should vote, let me say this, when someone is speaking and they can’t tell you clearly how they are going to fix a problem, READ between the lines he doesn’t know himself, but it is what he is not saying that could be dangerous to all of humanity.

    Mitt does not like black people or poor white people, just to give you a clue of what a beast this man is.

    I will not fear what can man do to me, because Jesus is Lord and is still in control, and has the power of all the heaven and earth.

    Please don’t be stupid, God said in Proverbs a man who does not like instruction is stupid. God also said if you lack wisdom let him ask and he shall receive. God gave us all common sense, use it or be dammed.

    Remember what BUSH did when he was in office, many uneducated people and those who were undecided voted for him, this is why we are in this mess. WAKE UP BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE FOR ALL OF HUMANITY! Mitt would like to erase Social Security Benefits.

    I am praying for us all.

  24. Well, shall we now excuse here for saying somethig she really knows not? she says she’s been redeemed by God….how does she know this? It is only by belief and a faith she has been endoctrinated to believing and merely that!. Why do people attribute to God what they know not?

    It is something to know that millions folow Mr. Jakes and yet, did he not see his own child? Did he not know her? How about the guidance of a father to engage in his daughter’s life or is it that he is too busy making money off of his congregants and new found celebrity status?

    Yes, I am critical because if one reads any holy book, it would be found that anyone who claims to live their life on behalf of setting people morally straight, it would be found they were not all rich or seeking the audience of those who are famous. Infact, they fell to their knees and place their faces to the ground in a fashion filled with humility and prayed….can you imagine Mr. Jakes doing this?

    Now I commend her for sharing a story that is so common in the Black community but what makes her story more acceptable than the kid on the block who neighbors talk about behind her back? We as an obvious impressionable people need to fine tune our pictures and quick being suckered by those who claim to work and live to please God and idol worshipping objects and ideas of what they truly have no knowledge of….this knowledge ONLY lies with the ONE who is UNSEEN. Just believe if you believe, but prayer is the line of communication that never has to be televised.

  25. Sorry Sarah, too many generalities and no specifics. You said a lot without saying anything. I still don’t know if you are fit to lead somebody just because you went through a storm and came out the otherside.

  26. I understand her, I’ve been where she’s been, the hurt the pain, the lost of a marriage, the struggles of the life of a single mother. I applaud her for telling the truth and helping others heal.

  27. I’m not judging “but” how different is she from any other young girl who’s promiscuous, have a baby out of wedlock, gets married and divorced? There is no difference here, sin is sin. She’s just the daughter of a wealthy preacher. However, money can never buy into God’s kingdom.

  28. SHE IS YET AGAIN A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF CHRISTIANS…”THE CHRISTIAN: NOT PERFECT JUST FORGIVEN”

  29. 1 Black mans opinion

    It helps to have a pimp, I mean a very wealthy Preacher as your father, but why do you think preachers kids are the badiest kids at church. Maybe because they know the man, while we know the preacher. Where was the guidence of her father. Mother and father at home. So somebody was a fast a*s little girl. Preachers wives sleeping with their foster kids, preachers druging women for s*x. Preachers having s*x with young impressioinable kids. How did a Slave from Africa become a Baptist, Methodist or any other religious figure head and why? Why was the pimp and the preacher the only men in black neighborhoods doing very very well. Has it changed? Oh now we have crack dealers. Diamond in th back sun-roof top, digging the scene with a gangsta lean. We haven’t made it, till we all make it. Allow one person freedoms not allowed for all and it create a division. A have will always say they got there through hard work, like a person with less didn’t work hard usually they worked harder. people talk about the middle class, the middle class was created in 1933 after the great depression, white’s were given new homes and monies in what was called “the New Deal” in order to move away from the blacks looking for a place to call their own after Slavery, not hard work, that was for the black man. What did we know before “Roots”? Tarzan And just asking, why would God want you to give money to show you beleave in him, why is it more Black homeless and less stray dogs. Is this how we help each-other.. Just my opinions

  30. Is this the same xtian idiot girl that got herself knocked up at 14 years old?? Am I supposed to feel sorry for her??? Who cares??? Let the chips fall where they may.

  31. Our god is a awesome go!!!! Continue to allow to use you

  32. That was beautiful. I love that

  33. Awww she certainly is not the only Saved individual
    that has been divorce. I’m just not a pastor’s
    daughter with a platform to tell my story.

    Peace & Love Always

  34. THIS is why I don’t read blogs. The responses totally took away from the entire article. And then the author of the blog, chimes in along with the garbage just as well, which has NOTHING to do with the blog that SHE, the author herself/himself, created. SMH I’ll stick to finding things out for myself. This type of mess makes me hurl!!!!

  35. Beware folks, Romney operatives are everywhere! Romney pays Chinese labor to blog Bull Sh*t via on Black sites to discourage Black voters. What does this have to do with T.D. Jakes’ daughter?

    Your vote matters! If it didn’t, Romney and his operatives wouldn’t work so had to discourage you and attempt to keep you from voting! Don’t buy into the voter suppression! Many of us are the 47% who Romney expressly stated that he doesn’t give a d*m about.

    VOTE! VOLUNTEER! ENCOURAGE OTHERS!
