Popular and controversial progressive Christian author, speaker, and TV personality Jen Hatmaker filed for divorce from her husband on August 21. The case is open and involves children.

Jen and Brandon Hatmaker have been married since 1993. They have five children. Together, they host "Your Big Family Renovation" on HGTV. Jen remains on the board at Austin New Church, a church she and her husband founded.

🔦 In 2016, Hatmaker affirmed "gay marriage" and gay relationships as "holy."

In June, she called it a "Moment of Pride" when one her of daughters announced she is a lesbian.

On July 31, Hatmaker posted to her Instagram:

"In short, we are deeply hurting in our little life. ... Our family is navigating an unexpected crisis, and I've taken a step back from socials and work to help steer toward healing and wholeness. ... Please don't worry but please do pray for us if you pray. ... A request: don't pry or ask or push, even out of sincere concern."

On August 20, Hatmaker posted to her Instagram:

"I was trying to keep a lid on my emotions and be fun for a change, but apparently I can't do that so my body was like WE ARE GOING TO SIT HERE AND CRY IF WE WANT TO."
