It takes courage and strength to seek healing to the point of sharing the dark corners of our lives; the ones we most desperately try to hide. But that’s what Sheila Walsh does in her latest book, In the Middle of the Mess: Strength for This Beautiful, Broken Life (Thomas Nelson).
People are rarely who we think. And reading the transparent and vulnerable words from the co-host of Life Today with James and Betty Robinson offers a perfect example. As soon as I read the Introduction, I knew this book would be life-changing.
And I was not wrong. Continue reading
I’m super excited about Sheila Walsh’s newest book, In the Middle of the Mess coming out this fall.
Hear a well-known Christian speaker talk about Christianity’s tabu subjects. Hear her heart–raw and transparent–as she shares, “brokenness is always the beginning of healing.”
Anticipating this book is just about as exciting as getting ready to review it.
In God Loves Broken People, Sheila Walsh explores the feeling of brokenness in a world where we are expected to have lives that fit in neat little packages. She offers story after story and example after example of how pain has been internalized or when we believe the lie that we are useless to God as we are. Sheila challenges the reader to allow—and even promote—these circumstances to assist in growing closer to God. And as is Sheila’s style, personal examples are shared as she dealt with her own brokenness.
God Loves Broken People offers hope for those who deal with emotional wounds from either past or present relationships. It shares stories as well as scriptures from some of the most broken people found in the Bible. As a bonus, it even includes a Bible study guide for a more in-depth coverage for individuals or even small groups.
This is another great book from Sheila Walsh. I would recommend it for any who is hurting and looking for a fresh new perspective; on the beauty of brokenness.
