Recently, I told my husband it seemed like when we first got married, no one else was married. Then, once we hit our mid-twenties, it seemed like everyone around us started getting married. Now, in our early thirties, it feels like so many around us are struggling to hold on to the their marriages and/or are steps away from divorce.
It's real out here. People are in need of real, raw, transparent ministry that will transform their lives.
Sarah Jakes is a great example of someone offering that kind of ministry. She has quite the story. She has come through the pain of teen pregnancy, infidelity, divorce, and the shame that comes with all of that. However, I admire her honesty and willingness to share her story in order to uplift others in a real way. Her book is entitled, Lost & Found: Finding Hope in the Detours of Life. and the video below is just one of eight webisodes that you can find on her blog.
I hope you check it out and are blessed by it.
