More than Good! Great!

Sarah, is a brilliant writer. Her way with words is truly a gift. The wisdom in this book is what truly blessed me. I was expecting it to be a book about ‘reaching for your dreams instead of settling’ but that was just the overhead. She highlighted the various areas in our lives where we can be tempted to consider settling after being broken, hurt or even wounded. Make sure you take out your note pad friend because you are going to need it!

A Must Read!

Great book, I just found the narrator's voice to be a bit annoying so that made it hard to fully enjoy it.

So Glad I Gave a Second Listen with an Open Heart

I didn’t make it through half of this book on my first attempt. The narration distracted me and for some reason it just sounded repetitive and boring. But the truth is, I probably wasn’t in a place to really appreciate the content and half listened.

Something told me this week to give it another try and I am so glad that I did. Sarah’s story is one of triumph and she speaks on a lot of topics that can be uncomfortable - like forgiveness and addressing your past 😊.

The book is remarkable and I highly recommend it. Ironically she even says in the earlier chapter that you may put it down but you will come back! I am looking forward to reading more from her.

Amazing!


I could listen by audio. I usually don’t like audio books because the voice is annoying, but with this book it was interesting and kept me intrigued. Pastor Sarah gave so much confirmation and also validation of the thoughts that have crossed my mind in the past and thinking that still I discover presently. This book was a blessing and my prayer is that you too find connections that will help you evolve!

Not what I expected

I feel bad writing a negative review, but I need to be honest. She has a beautiful story, is incredibly vulnerable and I can see how she could reach a lot of people.

I however read a lot of motivational/self development books, and expected more nuggets to take away, rather than listening to her story. I was seeking more practical application to my life and my story. I felt like it spoke to a more oppressed woman, or someone whose past was holding them back.

Book was ok

Many other reviewers commented on the narrator and how her tone or voice made it difficult to enjoy. I still wanted to give this book a chance. I did push through and found there were some nuggets of wisdom. But overall, for me the book lacked depth. It was ok.

Life Changing!

I am a born again Christian and a baby one at that. I have suffered greatly in my life time and made others suffer too because of my brokenness. On my short journey of healing so far, God has been working within me to refine me. He drew my attention to Sarah Jakes-Roberts when I watched her Wild Woman sermon on YouTube during a challenging time in my new marriage. I decided to discover more and I believe the Lord led me to this audio book. Listening to it in my car on my own has helped me to discover areas of my inner being that were buried. I have discovered one or two root causes of destructive behaviour and have become a better person because of those discoveries. I am sure that when I listen to this book again in the future I will hear other golden nuggets that God needs me to hear to further progress my journey and healing. I highly recommend this audio book to any female struggling with identity and difficulty to change behaviours. May God bless you all.

heart work

Don't read this book if you are not ready let God get to work in you! I didn't want it to finish! Loved it - vulnerable and relatable! You soon forget that Sarah is not reading it herself as the message is so good!
