First Lady Serita Ann Jakes will officially celebrate turning 59 years old Tuesday, August 19.

But the author and wife of Mega Pastor T.D. Jakes got an early tribute Sunday morning at the Potter’s House

in Dallas.

Singing, dancing, gifts, flowers and grand speeches from her daughters Cora Coleman and Sarah Jakes,

brought the sentimental women’s ministry leader to tears.

During her speech, Sarah recalled a moment when Lady Serita had knee surgery.

“I was in the hospital with her,” she said, “and part of my responsibility was to make sure that she gets through

the night okay. And she gets up in the middle of the night to go to the restroom and she falls, and she’s crying.”

During that tense time, the shaken up daughter said, “I’m like ready to resign as a daughter. My mom’s on the

floor. But she got back up, and she said ‘I’m okay.’”
