"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."
-2 Timothy 1:7
A leading African-American columnist and the sister of well-known author and speaker Bishop T. D. Jakes, Jacqueline Jakes knows all too well how God gives us challenges—large and small—every day. While still in her twenties, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor, underwent a risky, eight-hour surgery, and went through a long, difficult recovery. She credits her faith for giving her the courage and strength to face the future.
Now, in SISTER WIT, she offers more than one hundred devotions to help other women handle life's difficulties, from the landmark events that test our faith to the everyday annoyances that test our patience. Addressing the special needs of women and filled with secrets Jacqueline Jakes has held deep in her heart and never before shared about her illness, as well as uplifting quotations and anecdotes about her family and famous brother, SISTER WIT shows us how to overcome past hurts, deal with conflicting emotions, and open our eyes to new perspectives. These powerful devotions include positive, pragmatic tips and her own soul-felt observations in the areas of:
- Inspiration. Revive your faith—and find out how to include spiritual renewal in even the busiest day.
- Struggles. Understand and better cope with problems—as you learn how to construct a "faith box" to make your dreams come true.
- Virtues. Let contemplation bring out the best in you—and see how a smile can light up the darkest days.
- Encouragement. Discover how God's love can cheer you on to happiness—and how easy it is to reach out to those who need to hear a caring voice.
Created to be read often, SISTER WIT can be kept by your bed, in your office, or near a favorite chair to provide just the right message of faith—a delightful nugget, a revelation, or a compassionate passage—to lift your spirit, feed your soul, and help you do all that life asks of you.
