In Capable Arms by Sarah Kovac

When national media ran a story about the disabled new mother who cared for her baby with her feet, it went viral. Suddenly, Sarah Kovac—and her struggles with a rare congenital birth defect—became an inspiration to millions. Using her feet as others use their hands, Sarah lives a full life as a wife and mother as well as an author, speaker, and encourager. But as impressive as Sarah’s daily life is, her journey to overcome the emotional and spiritual challenges she faced, makes her story our story.
As we watch Sarah turn her “limited” arms into unlimited possibilities, we come face-to-face with our own struggles. Her story challenges us 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 no matter what.

My Thoughts: My book arrived the day before the review was due and unfortunately I didn't have time to read it that night. I am so glad I was able to find the time over the weekend. In Capable Arms is an incredible story about an incredible woman; although Sarah tells about her life, it's not a biography but an inspirational work. Throughout the chapters are interspersed "journal questions" which would be great for a book discussion group. In Capable Arms is a book one can't put down that will make you think about the obstacles in your life even if they aren't as obvious as hers.
