Daughter of prominent pastor T.D. Jakes, Sarah Jakes joined us live to discuss her new book about teen pregnancy and the road to becoming an adult.
While surrounded by what most would consider a fairy tale life, Sarah Jakes found her road to be lonely, critical and judgmental. Like every girl, Sarah Jakes dreamed of a life full of love, laughter and happy endings. But her dreams changed dramatically when she became pregnant at age thirteen, a reality compounded by the spotlight of being the daughter of Bishop T.D. Jakes, one of the most influential pastors in the world. All of Sarah’s dreams seemed to be coming true when she married a professional football player at the age of 19 in a fairy tale wedding. However, the public spotlight on Sarah’s pain only grew larger when her marriage ended in divorce a few years later. In her new book, ‘Lost & Found,’ Sarah candidly shares what life was like “growing up Jakes,” how she maneuvered the challenges of being a teen mom, and how she bounced back from divorce, after enduring a marriage riddled with dishonesty and infidelity.
