Review: Lost & Found
Author: Sarah Jakes
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.
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.
