Bishop Jakes’ Daughter, Sarah Henson, has been through a lot, like most young women. However, when you are in a high profile position such as her, life’s lessons are magnified. I’m sad to report that Sarah and her husband, Robert Henson, are calling it quits. The two wed in the summer of 2008 and they have a beautiful two-year-old daughter together. The Sarah Henson divorce has come to a shock to the gospel community.
Henson’s official statement says:
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.
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.
