Sarah D. Henson, daughter of Bishop T.D. Jakes, recently announced that she is divorcing her NFL linebacker husband Robert Henson after four years.
Henson, who leads the Women’s Ministry at The Potter’s House in Dallas, who ministers about being a good wife and trying to make things work has been faced with a difficult decision.
“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.After professional counseling, and prayerful consideration I have decided to end my four-year marriage.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 took pen to paper last year, she wrote about her decision to give birth at 14-years-old in a blog titled “Guided Home.”
