Publisher's Description

IS IT POSSIBLE THAT GOOD THINGS CAN COME OUT OF OUR BROKEN DREAMS?

Worship leader and recording artist Laura Story’s life took an unexpected turn when her husband, Martin, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Their lives would never be the same. Yes, with God all things are possible. But the devastating news was that no cure existed to restore Martin’s short-term memory, eyesight, and other complications. The fairy-tale life Laura had dreamed of was no longer possible. And yet in struggling with God about how to live with broken dreams, Laura has found joy and a deeper intimacy with Jesus.

Laura helps us understand we aren’t the only ones whose lives have taken unexpected turns. She examines the brokenness of some of the heroes of our faith, and shows how despite their flaws and flawed stories, God was able to use them in extraordinary ways. And it was not because of their faith, but because of the faithfulness of their God. God may not fix everything. In fact, although your situation might not ever change or get better, with Jesus you can.

"Our family has been ministered to by her vulnerability and willingness to walk in the valley and still say ’God, I Trust You.’"

— STEVEN CURTIS and MARY BETH CHAPMAN

Grammy Award-Winning Artist and New York Times Bestselling Author

"Laura is one of my heroes when it comes to trusting God. She’s joyful, genuine, and faithful even though her story includes messy chapters. ­This book will be on my nightstand for a long time!"

—LISA HARPER

Author and Bible Teacher

    The subtitle of the book is Lessons You Never Wanted to Learn, Truths You Can't Live Without. That sums up the essence of this book quite well. Laura Story and her husband, Martin, learned in a most difficult way that God does not fix everything. But He does teach us some of the most valuable lessons as we go through the valley of brokenness. Too many people crumble and fold at the first sign of trouble, but not Laura and Martin. They were still practically on their honeymoon when serious trouble hit in the form of a brain tumor that could have ended Martin's life. As in the case of so many others, what seemed to be a major tragedy to them, their family, and their close friends proved to be something that God has used for His glory and for the benefit of numerous others who have heard this story and have heard Laura sing and speak. Blending their story with the stories of people in the Bible who were broken, she helps us see that God is always working to make us into what He wants us to be even as we view our broken dreams and lives lying on the floor. Weaving all of this together she shows the fallacy of the myths we accept so readily and points us to the truth God wants us to understand. I have heard her song, Blessings, from time to time, but it will have much greater meaning to me now when I hear it, knowing the great brokenness out of which it was born.

    Excellent book written with vulnerability and honesty! Laura doesn't skirt around the issues of suffering, loss, and unmet expectations. Highly recommend.

    This is the most honest, heartfelt Bible study our women's class has done in awhile. Every chapter hits feelings we all have. Laura does a great job showing us Jesus is always near and his plans are better than ours. This study is filled with encouragenent in every chapter.

    This is an amazing book. I didn't want to put it down! Laura Story (composer/musician) takes us along with her on the journey she had before, during and after her husband's brain tumor. Her chapter on "Why?" is one of the best dissertations I have read on that question. I felt the book was completely worthy of a summer Bible study I lead at my church. AND there IS an accompanying 6-session DVD and study guide. Definitely NOT a disappointment!
