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 13, 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.

As Sarah tell her story I could identify with most of it. Her openness is what we need in today's time. GOD IS AWESOME
All of it
I enjoyed the content and appreciate the author for narrating. I don't think any other author would have done the audiobook justice. Hearing it from the author made the content more powerful. She lived through it and brought the true emotion. I would recommend this to everyone.
Sarah Jakes story is inspiring and beautifully shared in this book. I honestly didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I did. I wish more women could find the strength to use their trials the way Sarah has...to become stronger and build a brighter and better tomorrow.
I am a mail carrier & I go through a book in one day
Sarah Jakes story is the story of most young & impressionable girls. I loved this love book/audio. It has inspired me to take my power back & stand on it without regret.
This book is life changing. It gives insight into living a life of courage after many failures and mistakes. It's never to late to allow God to use your story to help others rebuild.

This is a great book for anyone who is in a period in their life where they feel discouraged, hopeless, or trying to find themselves. Sarah does an amazing job of being open and expose for the reader. This allows the reader to relate and become honest with themselves. Hopefully this book inspires you to truly see your current condition, whether you are broken emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. Then allow God to rebuild you.
Truth be told most of us can relate to either sections of or the entire book on Sarah's lost and found true story. I commend her for sharing her journey with us, and give God all the glory for guiding her through it all.
An honest, relatable book. I cried a lot though. We all get lost, getting found is divine! A real blessing
"An amazing , uplifting book."
A very honest and inspirational book. I loved the transparentcy as Sarah and her openness to share the most intermit parts of her journey.
