Sarah Jakes has found the key to successfully balancing the multiple roles in her life. Her secret is to put God first.

As a wife, mother, author, first lady and businesswoman, Jakes could easily be overwhelmed, but thanks to her relationship with Christ, she approaches life with confidence no matter what the day may bring.

“My faith sets the tone for each day,” said Jakes, who recently published her third book, “Dear Mary – Lessons From the Mother of Jesus for the Modern Mom.”

“Through prayer, I welcome God into the flow of my day, and pray for His direction as issues arise. I am adamant about asking God to reveal my role in the life of my loved ones for that day, so that I’m sensitive to their needs. Also, I ask God to protect and progress all that my family does.”

Her strong faith has been especially helpful in her role as first lady of One Church LA, led by her husband, Pastor Touré Roberts. Together, they minister to a growing congregation, including those in the television, film and music industries.
