TD Jakes' Daughter, Sarah, Blogs About Family, Marriage Ups & Downs

Her fairytale wedding had everyone buzzing. But Sarah Henson, youngest daughter of popular megapastor TD Jakes, has taken to her brand new blog to tell everyone marriage is not a fairytale and can be lonely, hard, and rough at times.

The blog post titled, "My God, My Family," begins this way:

 

Making a family work isn’t like an episode of the Cosby show, where you face a problem that you laugh through and then solve within 30 minutes. The beauty of family isn’t in the highs but rather in the lows…The moments when you feel like you’re alone, tears stream down your face, your heart begins to spasm from the hurt and in a moment you feel a familiar embrace enclose you with love.

 

Sarah, who is married to Robert Henson, a Texas Christian University graduate and linebacker for the Washington Redskins, uses her experiences to form her own unique perspective on marriage.

As I begin my own family, and strive to teach my children the importance of love and support I cannot help but realize that it first begins with my marriage. Marriage is hard for many reasons but one of the most evident obstacles is being vulnerable enough to let someone 1.) see your dark places 2.) trusting that, that person can provide a flicker of hope or at least the comfort of company. This task is even harder for someone who never experienced that support throughout their childhood, because they’ve never had to let someone see their scars…To see behind the walls that life teaches us to build.

It's no surprise that young Sarah is tap-tapping away at her computer keys, sharing her writing gift with others. Her father is the New York Times bestselling author of more than 30 books. Her mother, First Lady Serita Jakes is a gifted author.  Looks like the saying is true that, the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree.

Henson concluded her post with these words:

I want to love from a pure place. A place that doesn’t dwell in hurt or secrets, in past or pain. God help me to realize that no one is perfect not even me, and that pure love and kindness can cure the darkest of hearts. I don’t want to be bitter, keeping a list of all the wrongs ever done to me. I do not want history to handcuff my love.

To stroll down memory lane and go back to their beautiful wedding day, you can check out this video of the sweet couple.
