"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." --Publisher description.

My chocolate drop!

This was my first time ever reading a book written by Sarah Jakes Roberts. What's ironic is that I am also reading her dad's new book, Soar, which also happens to be my first T.D. Jakes book.

I enjoyed Don't Settle for Safe even though it was a little choppy in some places. I definitely took notes on some of the topics she discussed, including finding a mentor. I would love to hear Sarah speak in person one day soon. I get the feeling that her sermons pack a powerful punch.
