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!

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

This book has truly blessed me. I have laughed, cried and had several revelations while listening to this book. Sarah Jakes-Roberts is truly a phenomenal woman of God and I'm truly grateful that she has chosen to share her story.
