"Don't Settle for Safe" by Sarah Jakes Roberts

My review...

Sarah Jakes Roberts knows that we, as women, will feel overwhelmed at times, and she wants to remind the reader that they're not alone in their journey. It is possible to be strengthened by the struggles in life.

Roberts' latest includes numerous personal stories to highlight her message. Biblical stories and verses are appropriately woven throughout. Many of the author's points are relatable and applicable. This book is designed for women at any stage of life. There are numerous valuable nuggets of information included, but it wasn't quite what I was expecting. I've read similar books, and this was a bit flat in comparison. Prayers and questions for personal reflection are included throughout the book.

There were some key takeaway points for me, including:

  • "If voices of insecurity, doubt, and fear are not confronted, they will dictate your life."
  • "Excuses are comfort zones."
  • "You can't live in the past and maximize the present."
  • "You do not choose purpose. Purpose chooses you."
