Serita Jakes, wife of popular televangelist Bishop T.D. Jakes, was visibly brought to tears last Wednesday as she listened to Allison Jean, mother of Botham Jean, talk about how she has been drawing strength from Scripture since her son was shot dead inside his Dallas apartment by local police officer Amber Guyger last month.
The emotional moment was captured in a recording of Jean addressing the audience after receiving the Lady of Grace award from Trayvon Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, during the God’s Leading Ladies gala at Bishop T.D. Jakes’ Woman, Thou Art Loosed! Master Class conference.
“When I received the email from lady Serita Jakes informing that I would be honored with the Lady of Grace award for the attitude which I displayed following my son’s death, I pondered long and hard about receiving it. This has been a most trying period for my family. The year 2018 dealt us challenges of health, accident, unemployment and now this deadly blow of my beloved son Botham,” Jean began.
