The Broken Way 

I have been trying to read “The Broken Way” by Ann Voskamp for weeks. It is so deep and rich that I have to keep stopping and pondering and reflecting. 

I felt the Lord telling me to READ- so I was obedient and finally picked it up again and am barely on chapter 3 tonight when God spoke to my heart so deeply showing me that in understanding the Broken Ways – in many areas of my life, one in particular with a relationship that ended last year that was painful, that I now know both our paths to abundance and abundant life were meant to be without each other.  

I was actually able to thank them and God for the years of memories. I felt every ounce of residual hurt just melt away in an instant and no longer felt any sadness or unforgiveness at all.  

I can truly see the beauty in the breaking now and know God had a much bigger purpose for the pain. 

Talk about a full healing moment! 

As Ann states in the book- 
“Wounds are what break open the soul to plant the seeds of a deeper growth. Maybe the deepest wounds birth deepest wisdom.

Brokenness can make abundance.” 

I can’t wait to see what else this book will open up. 

If you loved 1000 Gifts – You will love The Broken Way.

The Burning Within 


The Burning Within

By RaNelle Wallace with Curtis Taylor

On October 9, 1985, RaNelle and Terry Wallace tried to fly their single-engine airplane through a snowstorm in central Utah.  They became disoriented and crashed against the side of a mountain,turning their small craft into a raging inferno. Terry emerged almost unscathed, but RaNelle suffered severe burns and died six hours later in an ambulance.  What happened to her then has captured the hearts of thousands who have heard of her incredible journey beyond this life.

The hardcover sleeve states that The Burning Within is a gripping view of the tenacity and majesty of the human spirit. 

 

After reading this book I can confidently say that it is so much more than that.

Rarely has it ever been so easy to see the hand of God.  The words in this book will cause a stirring in your spirit.  

The explanation of our relationship with God, our presence in heaven and on earth, and the relationship between our flesh selves and our spirits reads as perfect fact.  

“Our ability to accept truth, to live by it, governs our progress in the spirit, and it determines the degree of light we possess.  Pg 98

“It is within the simple principles of the gospel that the mysteries of heaven are found.” Pg 105

While the author’s personal journey and struggle to recover and heal from her wounds is an important story with great lessons for all of us, the spiritual experience of dying and seeing heaven is riveting.

“I understood every reason for everything I did in my life.  And I also understood the impact I had on others.”  Pg 91

“I saw that we all stood before our Father before coming to earth, brothers and sisters in eternity.  I experienced this anew, just as I had experienced it in my own pre-mortal life.  I saw that we chose to come here, to face trials and to gain experiences of this earth.  I saw that we elected to follow a Savior who would redeem us from the sins of our mortal lives and bring us back to our Father.  I felt love and joy sweep over me again as we accepted Jesus Christ as that Savior.” Pg 106

There is so much to be learned from this book.

Expect an impact on your personal spiritual growth.  

Soak it in and share it with others.

Sensible Shoes by Sharon Garlough Brown


Brown tells a fictional story of 4 women who are all at a different intersection of their life. All four are faced with the internal struggle of choosing to let the past control them or embrace the redemption and new life Christ has to offer them.

Meg has found herself alone in her mother’s house mourning the loss of her mother and husband’s death after her daughter departs to go overseas to college. She is left living with the ghosts of her pasts and deciding if it is time to sell her home and put those ghosts to rest or continue to live in the comfortable present.  

Hannah, a church minister, has devoted her life to Christ and serving other’s in His name. She gave up everything to serve God including the idea of marriage and children. After being forced into a 9 month sabbatical by her lead pastor she has to face the loss of her entire identity and everything her life stood for….and all the pain her life represents.  

Mara has forever been the rejected child. Rejected by her family, her husband, her sons and her peers. All she has ever longed for is acceptance and to become one of the popular girls in school…or at least let them feel the pain she felt every time they made fun of her. Can she ever find it in her heart to accept herself if no one can?

Charissa lived her life making all the right choices. She was raised in the right family with the right social connections. She went to the right college and married the right man. Everything in her life was perfectly planned and she always had the right answer to anything she had to face. Until the day she was faced with not having the answers to her biggest fear and the one thing she did not want to be….becoming a mother. Can she find it in her heart to walk in the role she has been called to?

All four women are called into the journey of facing their past and the current circumstances they find themselves in. What will each of them chose and will God really help them to accept where their lives are headed despite their past?

This is a quick easy read and would give it a 3.5 out of 5 ⭐️
