The series, inspired by the real life of Sarah Jakes-Roberts and her husband Pastor Touré Roberts, reportedly revolved around Omari & Hope who together run a modern ministry and share an even more eclectic and chaotic home life with a combined four children.

Not hip to the Roberts’? Sarah, most known as the daughter of Bishop T.D. Jakes, has followed her famous father’s footsteps in ministry, serving as the First Lady of both One Church LA and One Church Denver, alongside her husband. The Roberts are also widely known online for their relatable messages of faith, their blended family and of course their incredible fashion sense.

While the network said no to this series, it is relaunching Kids Say The Darndest Things this fall and you won’t believe who’s the new host!
