So, as you guys know I’m a BIG fan of books but one book that I really enjoyed and it also changed my life was “Lost and Found: Finding Hope in the Detours of Life” by Sarah Jakes. Sarah Jakes Roberts (she is now married) is the daughter of mega church pastor Bishop T.D Jakes who has found her own stage when she first release a blog. In this blog Sarah would just vent and wrote what was on her mind and it turns out that she was not alone. Her blog became famous and she was convinced to collect all her stories and life experience into her book and that she did. Sarah wrote about EVERYTHING, she didn’t shy away from any experience she ever had. She started from how she got pregnant at the age of 14 and how by the age of 23 she was going through a divorce because of all the infidelities. She laid her heart and soul into that book and I was so grateful because it taught me about transparency as a Christian. My faith has brought me through so really dark storms in my life but I struggled with the question “who am I?” not only as an individual but as a believer in Christ. I found that instead of celebrating all that I have overcome in life I was embarrassed, but Sarah taught me that it was okay to embrace all that I went through because it made me better not bitter. Although this is a religious book I believe that everyone should read this book to embrace their truth.
A Must Read !!!!
