--Bishop T.D. Jakes
From the Back Cover
Don't let your past keep you from a full future.
Like every girl, Sarah Jakes dreamed of a life full of love, laughter, and happy endings. But her dreams changed dramatically when she became pregnant at age thirteen, a reality only compounded by the fact that her father, Bishop T.D. Jakes, was one of the most influential megachurch pastors in the nation. As a teen mom and a high-profile preacher's kid, her road was lonely. She was shunned at school, gossiped about at church. And a few years later, when a fairy-tale marriage ended in a spiral of hurt and rejection, she could have let her pain dictate her future.
Instead, she found herself surrounded by a God she'd given up on, crashing headlong with Him into a destiny she'd never dreamed of. Sarah's captivating story, unflinchingly honest and deeply vulnerable, is a vivid reminder that God can turn even the deepest pain into His perfection.
More than a memoir, Lost and Found offers hope and encouragement. Perhaps you, like Sarah, find yourself wandering the detours of life. Regardless of how lost you feel, you, too, can be found.

Sarah Jakes tells her story honestly. Being the child of church ministers, father and mother, is not easy. For example, it is hard to find true friends. Friends who don't want to befriend you for a reason like "please have your mother sign my book." Like all young people Sarah Jakes wanted her own identity.
Another problem faced by this preacher's daughter is finding true love. So often a man's love can be false, but when you come from a good and well known family there are an extra number of false faces which greet you along every turn.
After giving birth to Malachi at an early age, the author faced times of low self esteem as she tried to map out a new path in her life. Independent, she never wanted to weigh down her parents. She carried her emotional, heavy load with God beside her. Always hoping to find the right person to share her way to Christian Love in a marriage or relationship. Before all of this Malachi is born.
I couldn't imagined a better name for Malachi, her first baby. Malachi means messenger of God. However, in this miraculous and fascinating story Sarah Jakes shares that hearing those messages happens many times when there are thunder booms all around us, the clangs and noises of real life. Like David in the Psalms, we question whether or not God has lost us or have we lost Him. Then, she quickly comes back to the light because True Grace never has let her go.
I am so glad to have read this book. Truly, it moves the heart making it pump faster or a little bit slower, but I promise, you won't fall asleep while reading Lost & Found. By the way, buy a box of Kleenex. It's no way you can read it without tears of joy or tears of sadness. [...]
