A Good Enough Story
A Good Enough Story tells of Sara Kennerley's childhood spent striving for perfection and acceptance, resulting in a decade-long battle with severe depression and extreme self-harm. Through these pages she discusses the events that led to her crash, as well as the hardest moments during her struggle, leading up to the moment when God showed up and she came face to face with His redemption.
Along her journey from tragedy to recovery, Sara also shares a long-running peom, a "once upon a time" fairy tale piece, that mirrors her own story and draws the reader into the beauty of God's heart for each of us.
The book points to the hope and freedom that can be found for people with perfection-seeking mindsets and for those who may suffer from mental health issues...a hope and freedom that is found in the grace of God and His redemption through Jesus Christ. We are good enough only by grace, and that's the perfect place to be!
"A Good Enough Story is a striking testimony of the redemptive work that God has done in Sara’s life which draws the reader deeper into God’s heart for each of us with poetic eloquence and foundational biblical concepts. Sara’s story calls us to see each of our stories in light of the gospel of grace, and bids us to grasp who God says we are and walk into all He’s created us to be."
—Rev. Dr. Daniel Zopoula, Lead Pastor of The Miz City Church, CEO of Bridges of Hope
"Some scars are visible and present for the world to see. Most scars are hidden deep within us as we pretend we are okay. Sara shows us both in this hard journey of discovering of who she really is in light of God and His grace. Her poetic prose and heartfelt writing of childhood angst and bullying touches the heart of every person who remembers their own past. Where most of us find our footing, Sara goes deeper into her own mind of perfection and failure, becoming her own judge and jury. God walks beside Sara through it all, never giving up on her. You won't put this book down until you walk through the victory with her. I pray this book helps us to ask more questions, listen more, pray mightily, and be there for children and adults that may struggle with these same issues."
