Jesus takes our ragged edges and missing pieces and mends us into something both whole and beautiful.

Artisans can reclaim exquisite beauty from the broken, frayed, and hopefully shattered—perhaps once thought beyond repair. But what about us? What of the wounds that keep us from living the life we want to live?

In Tattered and Mended, readers walk through a gallery of reclaimed and restored art as well as broken and restored lives of those who have gone before us. With a gentle touch and personable wisdom, Cynthia Ruchtishows how even the most threadbare soul can once again find healing and hope.

My review: Cynthia is a gifted writer and a lover of Christ. She compares suffering to art. Cynthia uses visual word-pictures to show how one can emerge from a time of suffering (brokenness) even more beautiful because of the scars received during the storm. She gives hope to those who are in the midst of pain. She uses God’s word as a soothing balm.

If you or someone you know are in the middle of a painful season I highly recommend Cynthia’s book. I have been walking through an extremely difficult period in my life and Cynthia’s words have helped me see suffering in a new light.

I would give this great read 4 stars.
