*New York Times Bestseller*

Not one thing in your life is more important than figuring out how to live in the face of unspoken pain.

New York Times bestselling 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 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.

Ann Voskamp is the wife of one fine, down-to-earth farmer; a book-reading mama to a posse of seven; and the author of the New York Times bestsellers One Thousand Gifts, which has sold more than one million copies and has been translated into more than twenty-one languages, and The Broken Way. Named by Christianity Today as one of fift...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning I always believed that things had to be "perfect" or "just-so" to begin. Ann illustrates again and again through her own personal life and through Jesus' life that brokeness allows the necessary vulnerability for miracles. I absolutely love her writing. As her writings relate to you, you cannot help but feel their depth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from imagery and reflections that work This writer has a knack of writing in a way that makes my heart sing and then also weep. Her writing brings out life in all of its joy and rawness. I search for her writings as she writes in a way that speaks to me. Her love for Jesus is apparent. Her writing takes me back home every time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from For the soul Though I admire the writer's vulnerability and openness at times I struggled with her writing style. I appreciate the message, however was lost amongst the imagery and deep reflections at times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book! This book is so important for everyone to read. It shows us what life is all about. It reminds us to be grateful for everything we have - something I think is missing in this social media and consumer culture.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Those who loved "One Thousand Gifts" will love this but.... Prior to reading this book, I held the book in my hands a little nervous to begin. I had read the much acclaimed and raved about "One Thousand Gifts" and unfortunately did not have the same response of love and joy as many of the other readers did. I liked the overall message of appreciation and gratitude of that book but unfortunately the author's style and the content did not ignite a spark within me enough to enjoy reading the book. With this books, "The Broken Way", I have to say that I did get more from it than "One Thousand Gifts". Some of the content really resided within me really making me thing and feeling those emotions. However, I have now realized that it's moreso the author's unique style of writing that is where I hold the majority of my dislike. I don't know why I don't like the way the book is written but it just isn't the style I usually read. I'm sure many will love this book and will identify with many of the emotions and experiences within the content. This book is VERY personal to the author and it feels as if you are reading her personal diary. I admire the author for that and in fact believe it will be very beneficial for others to relate to. Even though I don't seem to enjoy the style of Ann Voskamp's writing, I will keep coming back for more. I admire and respect her for writing of such personal details for the benefits of others. Additionally, I believe the messages she writes about are of deep importance, especially within the age and society that we now live in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Most powerful Read of the Year! Ann has this way of writing about the soul and the Savior and the grace that comes with the brokenness we face all around us and in our own lives. Not only do you walk away feeling lifted and validated but you also finish this book wanting to extend your own broken story for the benefit of others!!! Powerful, so powerful! Proud to call this fellow writer a Canadian too!

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.
