Publisher's Description

God delights in transforming lives. In Broken Into Beautiful, singer and songwriter Gwen Smith's first book, she tells
the real-life stories of women with shattered dreams, shameful secrets, and damaged souls, and the God who makes them beautiful again. Each chapter
features a compelling personal story coupled with relevant biblical teaching and application. Readers will meet women wounded by infidelity, abortion,
widowhood, abuse, and other tragic events, only to discover the joy of being restored by a loving heavenly Father.


The book will remind women of all ages of God's willingness to eternally forgive and forget and of His heart to transform
broken lives. Readers will be empowered to believe truth, to remember grace, and to live for God's greater purposes. Broken into Beautiful is
ultimately about a beautiful Savior who became broken for us so that all who are broken can be transformed to reflect His beauty.

Publisher's Weekly

Smith, an evangelical singer and songwriter, offers Christian women her debut writing effort with both grace and candor. Smith winsomely challenges fellow Christians to be transparent in their admissions of failures, doubts, struggles and fears. To this end, she takes the lead by sharing her own emotional story of aborting her baby while in college. Years after the abortion, Smith was nudged by God to go public after hearing another Christian speaker tell a similar story. Still she battled against self-exposure because she was deeply ashamed and feared other people's judgment. Smith encourages women to seek God's grace and mercy for inner healing from past mistakes and for today's trials. Each chapter brims over with stories of women who've “been there” in the trenches of infidelity, abuse, widowhood and despair. Smith exhorts Christians to stop hiding behind their smiles and be brave enough to get real so that they—and others—can discover true freedom and God's extravagant restoration.

    This book really taught me to let go of my past!! My church book club was amazed and extremely thankful for this book, as it helped EVERYONE of us open up and let God's unconditional love take over our lives and let go of all the 'wrong-doings' and unforgivables of our past!!! This is a MUST READ!!!

    I actually bought this book to help my 21 year old daughter get through some difficulties she is having. But as I read it myself I find that it is also helping me with some things I had thought I put behind me. I would recommend this for anyone to read who has doubts because of past/present sins, some men would also be able to see something of themselves. Read this book, believe what it teaches, apply it to your life and become beautiful again!

    Gwen Smith's transparency and honesty in this book is a breath of fresh air. In a world where many women walk hiding behind their "fake" smile it was great to read a story from someone willing to take off the mask. It is an inviting testimony of God's healing in her life. Broken Into Beautiful is a wonderful narrative of what can happen when we allow God to heal our broken places.

    Tears flowed regularly as God touched my heart through the words on each page. "Broken into Beautiful" is one of those rare books that both touches your heart and then encourages you to tear down the walls that so many of us women hide behind. Her stories made me feel like I wasn't alone in the challenges I face. Gwen's vulnerabilty and spiritual wisdom gave me the courage that I needed to face some painful memories and make a fresh start. God used Gwen and this book to remind me of His grace and mercy, and for that I will be eternally grateful.
