sarahdjakes Why don't these things stay babies?? Instead they grow and become people whom remind you constantly that you're getting old. Going to miss my babies this school year, but look forward to watching them evolve as they learn. #ithink 3d

sarahdjakes Today I was "that mom" who kept looking back waiting for my child to fall apart. Instead I saw this face smiling back at me. She's such a big girl. I would've still been crying outside the school, but @toureroberts came in town to see them off and hold me together. 3d

sarahdjakes What I love most about the #dearlostme movement is that it gives you permission to not just recognize your past, but to learn from it. My love @mrs_britthall found strength! "I love @sarahdjakes #DearLostMe shirts! Mine reads #IFoundStrength which is perfect for me! I was not always the most confident. I doubted and questioned myself a lot! I started practicing yoga and strength training and also began building a stronger relationship with The Lord! I stopped worrying about what other people thought and more about what God thought Whose opinion DOES matter!! It is through Him that I have found my strength physically, emotionally, and spiritually! #DearLostMe #LostAndFound #IChooseMe #Christ #Jesus #Grace #Forgiveness #Love #Courage #Strength #Confidence #SarahDJakes" via @PhotoRepost_appby @mrs_britthall via @PhotoRepost_app 5d
  •   soniagns1 Thank you Sarah!!! Even though I'm way older then you. I find myself always overwhelm with your messages... I'm grateful for your fathers teaching, but I'm also grateful for your walk and wisdom with God too... You are truly a blessing and I pray that you keep it up, because when you speak, it seem like God is awakening my spirit up letting me know that it's not to late... That I can go for those dreams and ideas that He put in me... God bless and thank you... 5d

sarahdjakes When my mom told us she was pregnant I prayed everyday it would be a girl. We even had a name picked out for my little sister. On 8/14/1994 my dreams were shattered with an 11lbs baby boy. Good thing God knows better than us all because that baby boy became one of my best friends. For the last year or so he's lived with my children and I. I've seen him mature in so many areas over the last year. His presence as an Uncle is the closest my children have had to a consistent male presence. He is leaving us soon to explore the depths of his potential. I know that he'll see what I've been privy to since the day he came into the world. Hearts, minds, and souls like his are as rare as they are beautiful. I look forward to watching you discover all that is within you. Happy Birthday to my Numero Uno @imjustdex! 🌚#hesmakingmecook #idontworkforhim #hesnotthebossofme 2w

Normal Sarah Jakes
sarahdjakes My son saved my life, my daughter inspired me to live. Today marks five years since she graced the world with the beat of her heart. Her existence inspires me to push past my own insecurities and discover strength. She lacks neither personality nor wit. Creating an environment for her to develop into whom God created her to be is my top conviction. I work each day to offer her the best life that I can. Each breath she takes reminds me that acting in love is the greatest performance any of us will ever give. My life will be her evidence that she has what it takes to maximize her potential if only you dare to minimize your shame and embrace the lessons of your truth. God gave me a princess so that I could remember I'm a queen. Happy Birthday to one of the angels God trusted me to bring to Earth. #PrincessTurnUp 2w

sarahdjakes I am the single mother of an African American male. I have watched fearfully as our nation begins the sketches for the target they will one day place on my son’s back. I’ve immersed myself in the coverage praying to find a glimmer of hope amidst all of the devastating confusion. I want to believe that there won’t be another fifty years of this. I want to believe that education initiatives will begin to take precedent over penal codes. I want to tell my son that being black isn’t a crime and he should never be ashamed of his skin. Though I will pour all of those wants into his soul I’ll also remind him of a bittersweet truth. In 1619 our hue made its debut to the American colonies. I only have to say great three times to trace a slave in my roots. America’s history cannot be recounted without mentioning the many centuries of slavery, injustice, brutality, and violence our ancestors experienced. Race is as interwoven in the fabric of America as apple pie. Thin lines of hate have been weaved into the American quilt and it’s time to change the design. History cannot be erased, but trust can be restored. The longer a group feels denied of a future and hope the more desperate they will become. A race with a painful past and a grim future is crying out for help. Access to second hand education robbed us of any opportunity to have a fair start. We must work twice as hard as our counterpart if we desire a new legacy of generational success. Several centuries ago a face that held features much like my own was kidnapped from a place she’d always known. No longer surrounded by family or friends she made the best of the pain she’d been given. Each generation birthed from her womb carried a scar from the brand that comes with being owned. The death of ‪#‎MikeBrown‬ strips us down to the truth she knew too well. The average price of black human life is unacceptably low. #Ferguson I'm watching, blogging, and praying. 2w
  •   browngoldiamond Well said @sarahdjakes but.... you know that we as black people are not on the same page when it comes to finding value in ourselves. How can we expect anyone to respect us when there is a good percentage of us thats making black people look bad. Compare black people of today to the time when black people had nothing but struggles, setbacks, opposition day after day. Some black people back then went through hell just so we can be able to sit on the bus anywhere we wanted to, go to any school anywhere we wanted to, to eat anywhere we wanted to, to sit anywhere in the class room, to live anywhere we wanted to and the list can go on and on. I become sad just thinking about the lives that were sacrificed just so that black people can have the freedom that they have today. We as black people need to love ourselves first. Starting with loving the way God designed us to look like in the first place. There is no denying that self hate is prevalent in our culture. When seeing black men get slaughtered is a reminder that people in this country from many generations still don't get why other lives are just as important regardless of the skin color a person have. They are blinded by the devil's hate. So the question is.... what are black people doing? Because apparently since we are not going through the things that many of our people faced in the past some of us think everything is alright, until we hear about injustice happening to one of us. 2w
  •   curlycedes Very well said!! 2w
  •   tcarty19 As a white person, I totally feel for you guys. My family is from Ireland, where we worked and worked as slaves for the British for YEARS. We then were sent to build buildings and clean sewers for other whites in the US and received little respect. Heck, we friggin' built NYC and countless others and receive little credit. Of course times have changed and now *part* of Ireland is free. We have the respect we deserve and it's about friggin' time colored people do too. The actions of these police officers are pure evil. RIP Mike Brown and hopefully after this sad death there will be justice and a new birth for the colored. From one HUMAN to another, I send love. "I see humans but no humanity" 2w

sarahdjakes New Zealand! I'm headed your way in 2015. Excited to share the many lessons I've learned about grace, forgiveness, and trusting God can use our pain for purpose! by @joel_ulbricht "We’re excited to present Cloud Festival’s first international speaker @sarahdjakes

Sarah has packed more into her 25yrs of living then many will in a lifetime. Pregnant at age 13, working as a waitress in a strip-bar at age 18, a marriage that ends in heart-breaking divorce; all the while trying to keep up appearances as daughter to Bishop TD Jakes.
Sarah’s story will encourage & inspire many who feel they can’t bounce back from mistakes and the consequences of sin. We can’t wait for you to hear from my new friend Sarah.

sarahdjakes ️ by @cocochrissy_ "It's not often that I have an open weekend so I chose to take advantage of it by going to a nearby bookstore and picking up this book by @sarahdjakes. When I say I couldn't put it down I mean just that!!!! Even though my story is not hers (PK and Young Teen mother) I could still see myself in the pages. I feel like any young women who has sought validation from the world (love, acceptance, and the pressure to live up to others expectations) will enjoy this book. This story is truly something that should be read by all women. Trust me you will be able to relate in some form or fashion. " via @PhotoRepost_app 2w

  •   queen_s_j_m Young, foolish, childish, careless, selfish, reckless, some of what used to posses me. For the longest I lived in pain’s compound, at times self-inflicted pain and countless times externally inflicted pain, nonetheless pain dominated. From the death of my parents, a lonely teenage pregnancy, codeine addiction, an inconsistent relationship to major disappointments in my walk with God, education world and parenting world, all which repeatedly pained me. The edge and difficulty to escape the different pain cycles often left me in depression, my life was an in and out of hospital routine. Before I knew it, I took pills to wake up, pills to sleep, pills to laugh, pills to cry. Eventually I lost grip of myself, I could not tell between the real me and the medication created version of me. It lead me in a space where I wasn’t sure of my character and personality anymore. Am I smiling because I truly am smiling or is it the work of pills? Some of what bothered me. @sarahdjakes ...... that is a piece of what I wrote as part of my intro-foundation to the blog. once more thank you Sarah, you blessed a young South African lady from all the way across seas. I dont know how you did it but you just did and I thank you woman 1w

sarahdjakes He now sustains the very heart he broke... Your heart is strong enough to beat on it’s own, but it’ll never know that if you stay hooked up to the one you've made your machine. You have to protect your heart better than this. It’s poison seeping through your veins and we’re all watching you change. We really miss the person you were before. We don’t have as many choices as we think. All we have is the truth of today not the hopes of what can become. Are you making the best choices for you right now? If you aren’t then you can’t expect for tomorrow to be better. Tomorrow is just the sum of the decisions you make today. (Just a little inspiration from a conversation with someone who needed a reminder that they're stronger than they feel. Hope it helps you too. Like it and let others know they haven't been hurt alone. Together we'll heal.) #notetosj 3w
