In Capable Arms Book Review

Picture Credit

 About the Book
Sarah Kovac was born with Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC), a rare congenital birth defect that left her with arms that she could barely use. Growing up, she was the only one in her class with a disability, setting her apart as different and unpopular. 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 even typing on the computer--even as she grew in spiritual and emotional maturity and independence in exceptional ways. 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. "In Capable Arms" brings readers on Sarah s journey, crying with her through intense frustration and the desire to be perfect, cheering her through physical training and pain, and admiring her eventual spiritual surrender as she let go of her insecurities and let God use her . . . even her crippled arms.

Sarah brings readers face to face with their own struggles, challenges them with questions about self-worth and fear, then offers guidance, wisdom, and inspiration for finding hope and healing in the arms of the One who loves them no matter what.(Goodreads)

My Review
 What a great story to read!! Sarah comes across as a sweet lady who has gone through more in her lifetime than I can even imagine! Born with Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC) she has learned how to adapt and use her feet instead of her hands to perform tasks. Such a great testament of faith and trust in God. Even during her biggest struggles and worries, childbirth for one, she remains strong in her faith and writes about the Bible verses that helped with her courage during giving birth. 
Anyway if you like reading insightful true honest stories about real people, I highly recommend!
