Sarah Jakes Roberts, with life-lessons she’s learned and new insights from the story of Eve, shows you how the disappointments and even mistakes of your past can be used today to help you become the woman God intended.
Who would imagine being friends with Eve—the woman who’s been held solely responsible for the fall of humanity (and cramps) for thousands of years? Certainly not Sarah Jakes Roberts. That is, not until Sarah discovered she is more like Eve than she cares to admit.
Everyone faces trials, and everyone will mess up. But failure should not be the focus. Your focus should not be on who you were but rather the pursuit of who you can become. In Woman Evolve, Sarah helps you to understand that your purpose in life does not change; it evolves.
Making her mistake in the Garden of Eden, Eve became the first woman to deal with rebuilding her life in the aftermath of her past. Eve knew better, but she didn’t do better. With scriptural lessons and Sarah as your guide, you discover and work through
past issues and questions that haunt you,seeing yourself as God sees you and trusting Him with who you really are,how to come out of darkness and pursue a real relationship with God,why it’s important to truly care for yourself,setting in motion the beautiful seed that God planted in you, andrunning to become who you were meant to be!
Your fears and insecurities may have changed how you viewed God, others, and yourself, but in Woman Evolve, you can breakthrough and use past mistakes to revolutionize your life. Like Eve, you don’t have to live your future defined by your past.
Pastor Roberts (Don't Settle for Safe) delivers a powerful guide to the lessons found in the story of Eve. She describes Eve as a woman characterized by discipline, creativity, and stability who was "empowered to continuously evolve because she's fascinated by how God will reveal His perfect plan and strength through her heart and hands." Roberts encourages Christian women to be willing to experience "uncomfortable vulnerability," to surrender, and to trust God's plan. She also challenges readers to ask questions, be unconventional by making choices based on interest and passion, and admit when they need help, and warns that women often face more obstacles than men and shouldn't reject opportunities due to feelings of inadequacy. Throughout, she reminds readers that doing the right thing isn't always easy and offers insight on making tough choices: "The quicker you learn how to harness your power and balance who you are, the sooner you can get to the business of exploring the depths of the strength God has placed in you." Sections for "working it out" conclude each chapter, featuring open-ended questions ("What do you want to see in your life that you currently don't see?") and prompts for journaling. Evangelical Christians will want to take a look.
