Broken Ways

My sister-in-law Lynn has been huge groupie of Canadian author Ann Voskamp for a long time. After hearing so much about her (for so long) I have recently become a groupie, too. She writes what’s in her heart – straight up – in a way that touches our hearts in that deep place where reason and faith tangle with struggles we endure.

It’s slow going, though. I have been reading Ann Voskamp’s book, “The Broken Way,” the past few months on my Kindle. Her beautiful writing beckons time to reflect on each paragraph, each sentence, her words. I’ll set it down, then pick it back up to be blown away by the next page.

For this Lenten Tuesday, here’s a short YouTube video about this book that I hope might bless you as well.

Can we dare to find a path to abundant life through our brokenness? Through the brokenness of the Cross? Of Christ crucified for us?

“There’s brokenness that’s not about blame. There’s brokenness that makes a canvas for God’s light. There’s brokenness that makes windows straight into souls. Brokenness happens in a soul so the power of God can happen in a soul.”

Ann Voskamp, from ‘The Broken Way’

grace, peace & God’s canvases

    Lynn gave it to me a little over a year ago and it was impactful to me, too … I thought her writing style would resonate with you. πŸ’•
