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.
Why is the preachers daughter always scrutinized. She doesn't define the preacher, he doesn't define her. I'm glad I read this story. It gave me an indepth look into the writers life and the endless pain and heartache she had to endure. Sure a lot of it are our own choices but it is an entirely different ballgame when you're under the microscope so to speak because of your Fathers position. It doesn't make it right but I applaud Sarah for telling her story and I'm sure she will go on to do great and mighty things!
