Popular speaker and author Sarah Jakes Roberts shows women they are not disqualified by their pain and failures and offers encouragement and strength to believe God’s best is still possible.

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.


  • Hard to Relate

    By Tamika Nic.
    This book was all over the place. While it had great points the points often did not connect and I felt lost as a reader. I’m thankful for some good insight it provided but if you asked me the main point of the book I really couldn’t tell you. Definitely needs to be more organized and structured. I know a lot of people will resonate with this book however it was not my cup of tea. But I did make it to the end!
  • Love It!

    After joining in weekly for her podcasts and discovering so many of her sermons online, Sarah had already started to make her mark into helping me change my life. After purchasing this book it led me to attend her first ever Woman Evolve Conference. I was never the same and left Denver determined to finish this book! This book has touched me personally as I can truly relate to her journey. Thank you for your transparency. I pray this book provides healing to many more women all over the world as it has done for me!

    This book spoke to me on a mental and spiritual level. I really had moments while reading I had to stop and say “How does she know me so well” . This book will make you go deep into yourself and do a lot of soul searching and finding yourself.

  • As the Trajectory Changes

    By Brittny s.
    There Is one thing to write a book but there is another thing to experience the life of a book and bring it into fruition. You can’t speak on what you don’t have experience. To every person who assisted with you bringing the words to this book, I thank them. This book is life changing if you apply it. The purée of this book is unmatched. You bring it and Chile in my best Sarah Jakes voice there is no other way to describe. I thank you for opening a part of me that I didn’t think much about. I thank you for the journey that I took from childhood to now to truly understand my trajectory. I too was broken but the healing is joyous. Thank you for your authenticity and your sweet spirit to gather us women to say life different. Unlearn and relearn. Stay blessed and continue to Soar Brittny
