More About the Author

Angie Smith is Todd's wife, Ellie, Abby, Kate, Audrey, and Charlotte's mommy, and a host of other things to many other people she loves. Todd is the lead singer of the Christian group, Selah, and many people met Angie when they joined the Smith's journey a few years ago. While pregnant with their fourth daughter, Audrey, they received news that she would not survive and Angie began blogging as a means of communication with friends and family who wanted to be updated as they walked those difficult days.

Angie's blog, Bring the Rain, (www.angiesmithonline.com) started as simply that - a way to share her heart honestly and to have the gift of listening to those who had experienced similar loss, but truthfully, not all that much has changed along the way. Angie now writes books and Bible studies and teaches around the country, but the heart of all of those ministries is the same as it was when her fingers typed the very first words on her blog: Angie greatest passion is to make the Bible feel accessible and relevant, and to share her own ups and downs along the way to encourage others in their faith.

Angie holds a Master's Degree in Developmental Psychology from Vanderbilt University and is a best-selling author of multiple adult and children's books. She and Todd (and their house full of daughters) live in Nashville, TN, but hopes her path crosses yours somewhere out in the great big world.

There is a certain gift in being able to see God in the everyday moments. In our fast-paced and distraction filled lives, it is easy to run through our days without stopping to see where God is at work around us. Yet when we do stop and take it in, we have the opportunity to be and do something far greater than ourselves as we display God's glory through our brokenness.

These are the themes that Angie Smith explores in her new book, Mended. If you aren't familiar with her story, Angie Smith is the wife of Todd Smith, lead singer of the group Selah. She is also a popular blogger and speaker. In 2008 Angie gave birth to a baby girl, Audrey, who went home to be with the Lord only a few hours after birth. The Smith's learned of Audrey's condition early in the pregnancy and their journey through faith and loss is chronicled on Angie's blog. Audrey's story isn't detailed in Mended, but the book is infused with the grace and healing God has brought to Angie through the pain.

Mended is written with warmth and honesty. Angie reflects on the everyday moments of life like a child learning to pull weeds or spinning in the teacups at Disney World and sees God speaking through them. The moments of reflection at the end of each passage guide readers to consider the brokenness and mending in their own lives. Though the book does reflect on biblical truths it is a devotional, not a Bible study. I would recommend that readers use it as a devotional book alongside their regular Scripture reading. The thoughts for reflection included in each reading should make excellent journal prompts. I would highly recommend this book for readers who want to be reminded to look for God in the everyday moments.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a quality review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. I did not guarantee a positive review.

I started reading What Women Fear by Angie Smith, and it seemed pretty good. My friend suggested we read Mended together and share what we learnt every week. After the 5th chapter, I realized some things that I really didn't like about this book.

1. There seems to be no focus. The author's thoughts (and writing) goes all over the place. In each chapter, she tells a story from her life, then talks about how it made her think about something in her relationship with God, and at the end, she gives us some questions for reflection. In almost all the chapters, I found that these 3 elements in each chapter didn't compliment each other. Instead of working together to make her point stronger, all 3 elements had different points that weren't related (or were very barely related, in fact some seemed quite far fetched), and it frustrated me. It seemed like the author wasn't sure of the point she wanted to make, which was very evident when you read this book.

2. She likes to use flowery language, or talk in a way that beats around the bush. I like a book that gets to the point. Say what you need to to make the point stronger. Don't add extra stuff just for the sake of giving your book a few extra pages. One example is Chapter 14 where she talks about being 'all-in' when you follow Christ, and how there was a fire on the beach when Jesus came to look for the disciples after he'd risen from the dead, and how she thought Jesus was the one who lit it and she'd explain why. Right after that, she launches into how she thinks it's amazing how Jesus asks Peter 3 times if he loves Him and will feed His sheep. She never explains why she thinks Jesus lit the fire, or how it's even relevant to the chapter.

Because of God's great love for us He allows circumstances in our lives to bring brokenness. Angie shares out of her life how god has done this in her life for our good and His glory. Charles

Angie writes a beautiful book. I loved the chapter titled, 'Why Weren't You Moses?'. I'd rank her with Ann Voskamp, but Mended is easily read out of sequence, each chapter stands alone. I like that because I can leave it in the car and read it whenever without losing the thread of a long narrative like One Thousand Gifts.

i pre-ordered the book months ago and was delighted when it showed up a few days after it's release on my front porch. i own angie's previous books and read thru them hearing her voice and her way of making you giggle as you read. i have been a follower of angies since her blog began. it's been a delight seeing her blossom & grow through her journey of loss, through her brokenness & how Audrey's story has been given life, when her life was taken too soon! Angie is a girlfriend sharing her heart in front of so many people on stage at Women of Faith, through her blog & through her writings. Angie, keep pressing on!

I tried to read this book as slow as I could to absorb all that I could out of it and savor how brillantly Smith spilled her heart on the pages of this book. Quite literally, this book mended together pieces of my heart that I did not know needed mending. It is one of the most encouraging books on the Christian walk I have ever read. I know that I will read it time and time again, as it is highlighed thoroughly and the stories in it are stuck in my mind for good. I would HIGHLY suggest reading it, it has blessed my life beyond what I could say in words. I cannot find another book quite like it, that's for sure.
