"Lost and Found," by Sarah Jakes

"Lost and Found," by Sarah Jakes
  • Like every girl, Sarah Jakes dreamed of a life full of love, laughter, and happy endings. But her dreams changed dramatically when she became pregnant at age thirteen, a reality only compounded by the fact that her father, Bishop T.D. Jakes, was one of the most influential megachurch pastors in the nation. As a teen mom and a high-profile preacher's kid, her road was lonely. She was shunned at school, gossiped about at church. And a few years later, when a fairy-tale marriage ended in a spiral of hurt and rejection, she could have let her pain dictate her future.

    Instead, she found herself surrounded by a God she'd given up on, crashing headlong with Him into a destiny she'd never dreamed of. Sarah's captivating story, unflinchingly honest and deeply vulnerable, is a vivid reminder that God can turn even the deepest pain into His perfection.

    More than a memoir, Lost and Found offers hope and encouragement. Perhaps you, like Sarah, find yourself wandering the detours of life. Regardless of how lost you feel, you, too, can be found.

  • Unless you have been in the exact same situation you shouldn't judge people.  However in this book I honestly found it hard not to judge.  I admired her parents sticking by her through thick and thin, and as a parent I would have done exactly the same.  But to stay with a man who constantly cheated on you, I just can't wrap my head around that.  That situation features heavily in this book and I know Sarah tells of how all this made her stronger to put yourself through all this that, I just don't get it.

    Stars out of 5 : 2 Sorry I just wanted to scream at Sarah and say for crying out loud leave him.  I know the message was that you do go through all sorts in life and it can make you stronger, but I really didn't enjoy this book.
