Through the good and bad, ups and downs and over the years, Serita Jakes has been a solid rock in the life of high-profile preacher, T.D. Jakes.

This month, the couple celebrated their 36th wedding anniversary and the pastor of The Potter’s House of Dallas wants the world to know she is his “ride or die soulmate.”

In a sweet social media message, Bishop Jakes, 60, had nothing but glowing remarks to share about the leading lady he married in 1981.

“I made a public decision before about 600 people to take this woman to be my lawfully wedded wife. Neither of us had any idea what we would face, but we stepped to the edge of the pool and about 45 minutes later, we dived into a life that’s been filled with miracles and mayhem, majesty and mystery,” he said.

Lady Jakes, 62, daughter of a coal miner, met her now husband when he preached a sermon during a revival in her hometown of Beckley, West Virginia. At the time, Serita Ann Jamison became enthralled by him. She was smitten. Soon after, the two formally met and were married six months later.
