lcjohnson1988IndianaAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5October 25, 2013lcjohnson1988IndianaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Keep the tissues handy when reading Sarah's very heartfelt journey in this life this side of heaven. Is it depressing? By no means! Yet, when reading how Sarah felt about herself or how others treated her, it wasn't always with the kindest of words or actions. As you read each chapter, there are small grey boxes that have questions for readers to journal their thoughts, emotions or whatever.
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. Sarah and her family are following what the Lord has called them to do. Are you or am I? Is there something we are allowing to hold us back from doing what God has prepared for us to do?
I was raised with a sister who is mentally retarded, and I learned a lot from her as well as my parents. In fact, my other three siblings have too. I can't wait till we get to heaven and I get to hear her voice in a way I can't this side of heaven. Read, be encouraged and challenged. Grab your Bible, a notebook and be ready to learn from this special woman God has created!
