Short Book Description:

Don’t let your past keep you from a full future.

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.

My Thoughts:

I couldn’t put it down once I started reading. Usually autobiography types of books aren’t my style of reading but, this one was different. It held me captivated and interested throughout the whole thing, I finished it within about an afternoon.

Sarah Jakes isn’t only a speaker, though I haven’t heard any of seminars, and writer, she is a very real person who, in this book, gives us insight into her life from the very beginning. Though there is quite a bit of bad, there is a whole bunch of good. Her life experiences and how she came through them just inspired and encouraged me.

This is one book that I would recommend to anyone that is interested in finding out that there is in fact always a light at the tunnel; we just have to step up and be willing to go through the hard times to find it.
