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!

hard to listen but GREAT to digest

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.

Comfortably, Uncomfortable

This is my go to book whenever things within me that seems unsettling and I feel drained. Sarah continually challenges me to be "ok" with the storm, but don't stay stuck there because it will get better. Be patient and seek his word and understanding.

Read and listened to it countless times

If you are serious about healing and becoming the best version of yourself- this book is an excellent accompaniment. It’s thought provoking, truthfully challenging and has the best anecdotes one could ask for. Sarah Jakes Roberts has a way with words that literally speak to those unspoken parts of you that are yet to be discovered. I have bought several copies over the years for some dear friends and family members because I fully know that this book
was a catalyst for my ongoing healing and metamorphosis.

I wish she narrated the book herself

the book was okay, it definitely has some gems but is it memorable enough for me to recommend it? unfortunately no. If Sarah had narrated the book herself, I think it would have had a better impact 🤷🏾‍♀️

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!
