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.
