Bishop Jakes’ Daughter Sarah Pens Letter About Ending Her Marriage with NFL’s Robert Henson
We really wish that the church, of all examples in the world, could show an example of truly keeping it together. We know that pastors, bishops, evangelists, choir directors, pastor’s wives and even the the pastor’s children are human. It just kills us to see the big show of events they put on for these weddings and the leaders of the church can not keep the home in tact. Its a crying shame and we are saddened by it yet frustrated as well.
Here’s a letter one of our readers sent us about Bishop T.D. Jakes’ daughter Sarah Henson on her blog and her posting an announcement about her marriage ending. Now, if no one hacked her blog, we would suspect it is her intended post.
She calls it: “A Very Important Message” dated on August 29, 2012:
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.
Sarah also tweeted about her above statement on August 29th:

Now, we also found out her husband Robert Henson penned a letter, and it reads:
Robert Henson’s Statement
September 1, 2012
Life is filled with many transitions. These changes in life, whether good or bad, help to strengthen us and give us wisdom to fulfill our purpose.
After four years of marriage, my wife, Sarah and I, have decided to transition from being husband and wife to being solely partners in securing a solid foundation for our children.
It always has been my earnest desire to be the best possible father and example to my children that I could possibly be, and through my actions, walk before them with dignity and integrity, as well as provide them with security and safety. I will continue to walk in that role in their lives.
Please pray for my family that we will master this transition and fulfill the destiny God has planned for us.
He also tweeted on Sept. 1 and retweeted several other times since:
Goodnight tweeps …. Praying for brighter days …. But thanking
#GOD for EVERYDAY
We are praying for them both and for reconciliation as well.
