And I think that's what touched me so much about Sarah's book. I haven't faced the same challenges she has, but I've faced challenges. I haven't struggled with the same self-confidence, self-worth issues she has, but I have certainly struggled with those issues. What Sarah shows, as she reveals her heart in this book, is how she has seen God in all of it. How He's taught her, led her, held her. And although it's her story, it resonates in me because it's also my story. And yours. Because of relationship, because of the power that happens when one person shares something and we adopt, adding it to the fabric of our own story.
Sarah wrote, "When I was a little girl, I remember overhearing my parents and some of their friends having a conversation about grace. They were joking that you never want to pray for God to make you a gracious person because he might just do what's necessary to make that happen. I thought and thought about what they were saying. I understood that God had to let you go through some difficult things, painful things, if you were going to learn grace, but I wanted it.Read more ›
Growing up different wasn't a smooth walk for this young woman, and sometimes she shares how she herself added to the learning curve of being different. I can imagine having people look at her and make snap judgments about her without her even opening her mouth. How cool it was to read how Sarah and her husband met, and he wasn't even focused on her disability!
Through various seasons of her life she has faced each day with honesty and dependency on the Lord. She says without fear that there were times she "didn't know" how to handle a certain situation. Yet, God provided her with what she needed, and He has stretched her faith in Him through what for many are simple everyday tasks we never give a thought to doing.
At the end of the book, there is an interview with her parents. Great idea! Frankly, I think many of us want to know how parents made it through the challenges of raising someone with a physical disability. Sarah could have lived on hiding if she chose to. To me, she is a courageous woman. She is married with children who keep her life busy, and she travels to share her story with audiences across the nation.
As I read this, I was reflecting on how blessed I am, even when there are days I don't necessarily feel so. I was reminded that no matter what, all of us have jobs to do, ones made especially for us by our Creator.Read more ›
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".
I received a complementary e-book from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Heartwarming and uplifting. Sarah doesn't mince words and calls it like she sees it. It's a great book but be prepared to read several chapters at a time as it's hard to put down. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Angela Gerdes
