About the Author

Sarah Kovac is a wife and mother whose story of thriving despite a disability has garnered national media attention and inspired thousands with a message of hope and love. She shares her personal journey of self-acceptance with audiences at churches and organizations across the country. Sarah lives with her husband and son in St. Joseph, Missouri.

More About the Author

Sarah Kovac was born with AMC, a rare congenital birth defect that left her with arms that she could barely use. Realizing her unique place in the world, Sarah began adapting, working to her strengths, and eventually learned to use her feet to do such activities as changing her son's diapers, making dinner, putting on makeup, and typing on the computer. Picked up by national news network CNN, Sarah's story went viral and she was suddenly presented with a platform from which to share her love for God.

Sarah believes everyone faces tremendous obstacles, and that her life with a disability often visibly mirrors the invisible struggles even people with perfectly functioning bodies must work through. While she recognizes her story as unique, she believes her experiences can encourage people of all abilities and experiences.

What Sarah shows, as she reveals her heart in this book, is how she has seen God in all of it.

"In Capable Arms" is THE MOST heartwarming book I have yet to read. It's a story about one's life with a disability that may be physical but does not prevent this amazing woman to learn and do things that are important to her. I had never heard of Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita. Sarah, thank you for opening your world to us. Thank you for showing us how special life is no matter what obstacles we face. Yes, each day is filled with obstacles. Each day is also filled with opportunities.

To read your story and hear how happy you are in how much you have achieved, warms my heart. I have always believed that we are all here for a purpose. It's what we do with what we have that makes the difference. It's showing each other and supporting each other because we love and believe in them.

Life is filled with capable arms of love and support. It's those arms that help us grow into who we are.

I HIGHLY recommend you picking up a copy of this book today. You will learn how to smile in a whole new way.

Remember: life is filled with moments. Take THIS moment to order yourself a copy of "In Capable Arms".

My friend wrote this. I normally have a difficult time reading non-fiction, but her writing is pretty awesome. It was more than just reading a story about her life and struggle with a disability. Her honesty and insightfulness throughout her story are helping me to see a way to get through my own struggle with my own difficulties that I have let determine my success and happiness in life.

There were moments of tears and laughter as I remembered a few of my own experiences with Sarah in the two years we attended school together. Her words and life experience are impactful, and I highly recommend this book.

This book was written with a purpose to show us how God plays into our Iives. She shows us how vulnerable we can be with the wrong attitude. Great inspirational reading. Thank you for sharing your personal life story with us.

I really enjoyed this book!
I think it's amazing how Sarah doesn't dwell on her disability but dwells on God's grace to get her through challenges.
She's very inspirational and I highly recommend this book to read about her perspective.

I loved reading this book. I have known Sarah most of her life. Not intimately, but through her parents. There were several times I wanted to cry during the reading of her story as it is tender and heartfelt and honest. It gives a very realistic view into the life of someone with a disability in a fun and humorous way. It will help everyone to see people, in general, a little bit differently. Congratulations Sarah, and I am so looking forward to your next book!
