Description

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.

    After joining in weekly for her podcasts and discovering so many of her sermons online, Sarah had already started to make her mark into helping me change my life. After purchasing this book it led me to attend her first ever Woman Evolve Conference. I was never the same and left Denver determined to finish this book! This book has touched me personally as I can truly relate to her journey. Thank you for your transparency. I pray this book provides healing to many more women all over the world as it has done for me!

    I found this book to be very relevant to my current transitional period. So often women have remained quiet on our journey leaving others to have to fend for themselves and learn life on their own in life. I'm a very grateful for this work. It was insightful and inspirational.
