Many have heard Sarah Jakes Roberts’ story before – daughter of famed preacher Bishop T.D. Jakes gets pregnant at 13, married by 19, and divorced by 23. However, that is not the end of her story.
Pushing through shame and self-destructive patterns while under the glare of her family, her dad’s multi-thousand member flock, and the media, Roberts has been on a new path for quite some time now. While she released three books – two in 2014 and one in 2015 – it’s her new book, “Don’t Settle for Safe: Embracing the Uncomfortable to Become Unstoppable” (released on Tuesday, April 18, 2017), that mostly displays her self-discovery tools of breaking through the pain and moving forward.
