I read this book in one night. I honestly couldn't put it down. It reminded me that although we cannot control the circumstances of our lives, we can with God's help come through them. It reminded me that He is there in the depth of our pain- seeking us and making a way. He does not give up on those with a broken childhood, He heals the broken hearted and can make something of our life when we bring Him the pieces. Loved it!
Yvetter Maher shares some of the pain she's experienced in her life. Her book is filled with stories about different times in her life when things could have been hopeless, but God was still there and he redeemed the hopeless situations and brought beauty from ashes.
I found this book very confusing. There did not seem to be any order to the stories presented, and it was hard to distinguish between Yvette's life before and after her salvation. Other than her growth during her time at Focus on the Family, it didn't seem much in her life changed other than her attitude. The book was very disjointed and one I'm glad I didn't pay for. I give this book 3 stars.
God never leaves us even when we may think how could God still love me after what I did... It is amazing he shows his hand of grace and picks up the pieces of our broken life. What can I say, great to read other stories that reveal this. Others fall too.
