Synopsis:

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.

My thoughts:

As women we often feel drained, overwhelmed, and under valued.  Sarah Jakes Roberts knows that all too well and shares her story in this beautifully written book. I love the truth and honesty behind it. Roberts does a wonderful job at engaging with the reader and being open. I love that I felt connected and could relate.

This is a great book that reminds women that we aren’t alone in our journey and that the struggles we face will make us stronger in the end. This read is motivational and inspirational. I love that there’s a strong feel of empowerment and that Roberts pushes us to push our boundaries.
