The other side of brokenness
"If I could write only one book in my lifetime, I would ask God to make it this one, the very book you now hold in your hands. . . ."?Sheila Walsh
God loves broken people. And when weary, wounded men and women find a way to open their bruised hearts and somehow welcome Him into their personal darkness, they will find a love beyond anything they have ever known.
When the glass house Sheila had lived in for so many years came crashing to the ground, she began a new life outside the safety of those walls. No, it didn't feel good, nor safe?not at all. But it felt true. Sheila saw herself as a broken lamb limping after the Shepherd, not knowing where He was going, but knowing that wherever He went, she wanted to go with Him.
In twelve stirring, insightful, and deeply revealing chapters, Sheila Walsh shows how personal brokenness can open doors of intimacy with Jesus Christ that might never open in any other way.
It's not that God loves broken people more than those who imagine themselves to be whole?it's simply that they know they are loved. They dare to believe it . . . and through such trust, a new wholeness emerges from yesterday's broken pieces.
Sheila Walsh is a powerful communicator, Bible teacher, and bestselling author with more than five million books sold.

Sheila can relate to anyone reading the book because of the journey her life has taken over the years. She has helped me realize God loves us personally with a fierce love beyond what we can imagine if we only look to him as our source of life.

KellyAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Hope GivingJuly 12, 2012KellyAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This book addresses the issues of pain and suffering and helps people to cope with the challenges that come along with these difficult situations. Using real life stories that are personal to her and those she knows, she tackles some of the hard questions people ask when things seem to go wrong. She provides perspective, hope and encouragement to those encountering trouble. There is something for everyone to gain from this book.
I found the first half of the book to be a tough slog. She kept raising all these difficult questions, but didn't give any answers or solutions or really even much hope to the reader. I ended up putting it down for a few months, then tried picking it back up again. The second half of the book was much more encouraging and gave a really good perspective on dealing with challenging circumstances and ways to find healing while strengthening our faith at the same time. If you can get through the start, the end is worth it.
