Sarah Jakes Roberts knows how pain and fear can control your life, and she wants to show you a different way. The pastor, author, and podcaster has experienced many challenges firsthand: teen parenthood, divorce, and raising a blended family of six kids. In this self-help memoir, Roberts encourages you to sort out what’s toxic in your habits, relationships, and attitudes, and utilize the power of faith to move past that. Smart and down-to-earth, Roberts fearlessly draws on her most personal, painful life lessons to offer on-point advice and inspiration—and narrator Sisi Aisha Johnson beautifully captures the spirit of the book’s message, keeping it warm, relatable, and energizing. Don’t Settle for Safe is all inspiration, zero intimidation.
