New York Times best-selling author of One Thousand Gifts Ann Voskamp sits at the edge of her life and all of her own unspoken brokenness and asks: What if you really want to live abundantly before it's too late? What do you do if you really want to know abundant wholeness? This is the one begging question that’s behind every single aspect of our lives --- and one that The Broken Way - also a New York Times bestseller - rises up to explore in the most unexpected ways.  

This one's for the lovers and the sufferers. For those whose hopes and dreams and love grew so large it broke their willing hearts. This one's for the busted ones who are ready to bust free, the ones ready to break molds, break chains, break measuring sticks, and break all this bad brokenness with an unlikely good brokenness.  You could be one of the Beloved who is broken --- and still lets yourself be loved. 

You could be one of them, one who believes freedom can be found not only beyond the fear and pain, but actually  within it.

You could discover and trust this broken way --- the way to not be afraid of broken things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful I reread One Thousand Gifts then found The Broken Way at my local Coles. Another amazing, well written book by Ann Voskamp. It was challenging and comforting. It made me want to go out and Be The GIFT (Give It Forward Today) and just bless everyone I see in a day. It's a great book for anyone feeling broken, lost, useless or helpless. It reminds us that even in our broken, we can give to others out of our brokenness and help to heal a little bit of the brokenness we experience in our world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Brokenness Do you feel defeated? Useless? Broken? Then you’re in the right place. The Broken Way is a heartfelt book that will show you God uses the ugly places and makes them beautiful. Perhaps our hearts were made to be broken as that’s where wisdom begins. How can that be? Can we really count all the brokenness in life as good? Will it strengthen us to become stronger? The author takes us through her struggles and how she’s turned them into beautiful, yielding wheat. There is hope in the hopelessness. I struggled on how to review this book and give it justice. When I finished reading it, one word came to mind. WOW. Then another word. POWERFUL. Ann Voskamp has such an amazing way with words. She uses story, biblical truths, and her own hurts to share the message of brokenness to us. She brings us into her family, sharing her deepest thoughts and woes to help us see there is communion with God in the brokenness. Will we acknowledge it? I love her imagery throughout the book. It brings the message to life on the pages beautifully. My jaw dropped a few times in awe of how she threads it throughout the chapters. Her use of the inked cross on her wrist makes me want to wear my cross with pride and shout from the rooftops. It’s more than a simple symbol of faith. What will we do with our one broken heart? If I could give The Broken Way more than five stars, I would. It’s one of those life-changing books. When you finish reading it, you will feel breathless. You can’t read this without feeling touched in some way. I guarantee it. Pick up a copy today. Invest in your beautiful brokenness. **Book has been provided courtesy of Zondervan and Blog About in exchange for my honest review. The Broken Way Study Guide with DVD will be available in December.
