Popular speaker and author Sarah Jakes Roberts shows women they are not disqualified by their pain and failures and offers encouragement and strength to believe God’s best is still possible.
Everyone has experiences in their lives that stop them in their tracks and become burdens they carry with them everywhere they go. No one knows this better than Sarah Jakes Roberts. Pregnant at fourteen, married by nineteen, divorced by twenty-two, and all while under the intense spotlight of being Bishop T.D. Jakes’s daughter, Sarah knows what it is to feel buried by failure and aching pain.
But when her journey brought her to faith’s fork in the road, Sarah found she had to choose between staying in the comfort of the pain she knew or daring to make new wounds and move forward. Now Sarah shares the numerous life lessons she’s learned along the way with other women also struggling to believe they’re not disqualified by their pain and past mistakes. She delves into topics such as allowing the past to empower the present, choosing to step forward while still being afraid, facing struggles surrounded by community, finding intimacy with God outside preconceived notions of what it has to look like, and learning to focus on others. With deeply personal stories of her own, Sarah helps readers find their way to the right perspective and the confidence to walk toward the best God has for them.
This book was by far one of the best books I’ve read. I’m not a consistent reader, but here lately I’ve been wanting to read to have a different outlook on life. Reading this book has motivated and empowered me in so many ways. I would suggest this book to anyone who needs encouragement and understanding on living your best life and knowing what to allow in your space. I can’t wait to see her in 2 weeks!!! She’s amazing. I’d read it again ❤️
This book is so awesome. I felt like the book was kinda about me. I actually sat down and did the exercises in the book and it opened my eyes. It helped me in so many ways. I’m no longer afraid of what ifs. I got out of situations where I was unhappy. I resolved and let go of issues from my past. I no longer settle for safe.
Great book Thank you Sarah
Loved every page. My book is full of notes and highlights. Priceless.
