FAMILY AFFAIR: Sarah with her father

LOST AND Found, Finding Hope in the Detours of Life is the debut book from Sarah Jakes, the daughter of world famous preacher Bishop T D Jakes.

Sarah, who is head of Women’s Ministries at Potters House, the church her father pastors, has written a story about her life and some of the crises she’s experience.

A divorcee, with two children, the book features details of Sarah’s experience as a teen mum. Speaking on the Dr Phil Show, Sarah said: "I remember [my parents] being completely silent for a really long time.

"I know that may not be a big deal in most homes, but when your father speaks for a living, to render him speechless is quite the task."

Sarah also shared that her parents were shocked that she was sexually active at such a young age, but were supportive and helped her come to terms with being a teen mum.

She also writes about her marriage and subsequent divorce from NFL player Robert Henson.
