Popular speaker and New York Times best-selling author of Woman Evolve, Sarah Jakes Roberts shows women they are not disqualified by their pain and failures and offers encouragement and strength to believe God’s best is still possible.
Everyone has experiences in their lives that stop them in their tracks and become burdens they carry with them everywhere they go. No one knows this better than Sarah Jakes Roberts.
Pregnant at fourteen, married by nineteen, divorced by twenty-two, and all while under the intense spotlight of being Bishop T.D. Jakes’s daughter, Sarah knows what it is to feel buried by failure and aching pain.
But when her journey brought her to faith’s fork in the road, Sarah found she had to choose between staying in the comfort of the pain she knew or daring to make new wounds and move forward.
Now Sarah shares the numerous life lessons she’s learned along the way with other women also struggling to believe they’re not disqualified by their pain and past mistakes. She delves into topics such as allowing the past to empower the present, choosing to step forward while still being afraid, facing struggles in the midst of community, finding intimacy with God outside of preconceived notions of what it should look like, and learning to focus on others.
In Don’t Settle for Safe, Sarah will help you:
- View your history with positivity
- Demolish destructive patterns
- Connect with true intimacy
- Repurpose your passion into to your purpose
- Realize your true calling
With deeply personal stories of her own, Sarah helps listeners find their way to the right perspective and the confidence to walk toward the best God has for them.

I rate this book base on the truth about who Sarah is and she put it all out there. Letting us know that we all go through the same situation no matter who you are and where we come from.
Shout out to a true woman of God,
I've been listening to her father for over two decades who is also powerful Bishop TD Jakes. I thank God for both of them. I can relate to a lot of Sarah's testimony like a teen Mom, divorce etc. Although she's younger than me she's teaching me. Thanks Sarah for being so transparent open and vulnerable. You're an inspiration. I'm so proud of you. This is one of my new favorite books.
Let me start by saying l am a Christian woman who prays everyday. But l am human and as we all do, l get caught up in the world of stress and anxiety and overwhelm. I was drowning and when l found myself asking my friends to pray for me because l felt disconnected from God, I found Sarah by His Grace as l was struggling to keep my heart and head above some pretty heavy storms. I came across one of her sermons on YouTube when l was searching for something...anything to help me find direction or even a moment of peace. I just didn't know what that something was until l found myself captivated by her message. My heart opened up and l could hear the voice and guidance of my God again! I sought out more of her sermons and made them a part of every day and she helped me find my courage and strength again. She helped me find my shine and my soul and more importantly, helped me find my way back to my Savior l was desperately missing and needing because l was blinded and deaf due to fear and uncertainty. I was alive but l wasn't living until my heart opened up again and l thank Sarah for her compassion and profound messages!
I was gifted with a KJV bible many years ago written by her dad, Bishop TD Jakes -Woman Thou are Loosed and l love it! Between the two of them, their sermons and testimonies and the powerful way they deliver the word of God...l am strong and have found my way back to me and my Father.
I am still reading this book and can absolutely without hesitation recommend it highly! ♥️
This book is just like that.
The author has a strong personal story, and the main themes of the book - that good things usually come from risk taking, that "playing it safe" has its own dangers, and we should not allow setbacks to make us overly risk-averse - are totally valid and need to be said. I was a bit disappointed at the (lack of) depth however. Instead of a great principle, deeper explanation of the principle, multiple examples of the principle in action, and suggestions/plans for applying the principle, the reader gets a great principle followed up by cheerleading, slogans, and other relative superficialities.
Overall not a bad book, and it's based on some outstanding insights. I fully expect this author's next book to be better.
