It’s easy to spot someone being fake, someone trying not only to deceive others but to convince even themselves that what they are saying is true. In this book Connie is raw and honest about her past addictions, darknesses and struggles—she isn’t faking anything-no fluff, which makes you feel comforted. She unpacks the common misconception that we have to fake it until we make it with Jesus. We see the truth that EVERYONE is welcome to find freedom and peace without first changing our behaviour.
I cried multiple times while reading this, her writing style brings you face to face with her highs and her lows which look a lot like most of ours. This is the most simple explanation of who we were created to be and what we were created to experience.
If you are currently or have ever experienced doubt in who you are or why you’re here, you need to read this. Christian or not, this book takes us into a real experience of death and life, addiction, depression and hardship and the real, honest hope that flips all of that on its head. This book has the keys to get us out of our hurt and hate forever-no bs.
Connie writes in such an honest way, making me feel hopeful and ok for the struggles I’ve gone through and that there is a light at the end, there is an answer for the now.
It’s a quick read that will impact your life forever, seriously.

“Jesus is not going to fit in your heart. The story he invites us into is far too large.” Written with simple beauty, raw honesty and compassionate empathy, When the Dead Live offers an irresistible invitation to un-learn the Jesus we think we know, and find the courage to be known – truly known – by a God whose love is greater than we ever imagined. Connie writes as one who has seen dark places, one who can be trusted, as she gently but persistently invites the reader to reflect and welcome a God who heals, who restores, and who brings life from death.”
“Connie Jakab is an extremely important and powerful voice in the Body of Christ today. This book cuts away all the clutter and gets to the essence of what the Good News really is. You can agree, or disagree with the contents inside, but you certainly can’t ignore the message that Connie clearly articulates throughout each chapter of this book.”Jessica DiSabatino
“Connie Jakab’s expansive imagination for a beautiful journey with Jesus echoes an ancient clarion call. There is an everlasting love gleaming in the dark, this inviting book traces the contours of the Light that embraces us home.”Preston Pouteaux
The world already has enough desperate housewives so….
Culture Rebel is about a different way of living, a transformational way of seeing the culture we live in. It calls for rebellion to the negative messages culture preaches from all its mediums. It’s a stand-off to the status quo; a busting out of mediocrity and a full on sprint to a life living right on the edge of a new ideal.
Your life can have meaning again. All it takes is a little rebelling. You aren’t called to be desperate, you are called to be dangerous. The book tells you how.
The ebook, “Culture Rebel On A Diet” is on for only .99 on amazon to celebrate the launch of the book, “Culture Rebel”! If you’re tired of struggling with weight and diet fads then this book is just for you.
“Connie Jakab is a force to be reckoned with. She will settle for nothing less than wholesale change—both in the way women view themselves as well as the way society suppresses their life transforming capacities. Long may her cultural rebellion last!”Alan Hirsch
“Connie had me at ‘Visa bill as heart monitor’! Connie Jakab has allowed her eyes to be opened to the captivating lure of culture, and in this book your eyes will be opened as well. Warning: Don’t read it if you have no intention of being challenged or changed. This journey is for the brave of heart!”
“If you are happy with being a “success-crazed, comfort-seeking, status-hungry consumer”, then you better watch out: Connie Jakab has some strong words for you. But if you struggle with the temptation to be that kind of person, and you desire instead to live a life of purpose and meaning, then read Culture Rebel, because Connie Jakab has some strong words for you. This bold, honest, spirited book will challenge you towards a life that more deeply resembles the greatest culture rebel of all–Jesus–who knew a few things about saying strong words. Connie’s words may not always be easy to read as they target those areas in your life that need stretching. But go with the stretching, and be prepared to be transformed into a culture rebel yourself.”Helen Lee
