"Broken Into Beautiful is well-written, and although it is filled with real-life 'trauma' stories, it was refreshing to see it was also packed with Scripture, which is one of the key things God consistently used to bring those people (and continues to bring us all) through the trials He allows in our lives.
"I have already passed it on to a friend to read, and will continue to recommend it to all the women I come in contact with. It definitely has something for women of all walks and stages of life."
"Broken into Beautiful is truly one of the most encouraging books I have ever read. Although Gwen tackles many tough subjects and examples of broken lives, her focus is truly on the delight that God takes in mending hearts and transforming lives for His glory. The book is beautifully written, doctrinally sound, funny, touching, and laid out in a consistent, easy to follow manner from chapter to chapter.
"Thank you Gwen for your obedience to write this book and to share your beautiful Savior with a broken world. I've said it before, but will say it again: I love Gwen Smith because she loves God and now readers of Broken into Beautiful will too."

Then you've got to read this! It is written in such a way that I felt as if it were just me and a friend having coffee and chatting. I'd be rolling along fine with some chuckles here and there and then all of a sudden she would ask one of those heart searching, thought provoking questions that would bring back painful memories or reveal something I thought had been buried deep enough to not be seen or heard from again. Something that God saw me holding onto that was hindering my journey to beautiful.I was gently reminded that God is lovingly and patiently waiting on me to hand over my broken pieces so that He can transform them into a beautiful masterpiece. The scriptures and stories throughout reaffirm God's grace, mercy and faithfulness which sustained real women through some very real, very hard and personal things. From giggles to Kleenex and cover to cover I was encouraged, renewed, convicted, challenged and strengthened.
I believe God can use this book to transform women's lives and heal hearts!! Read this and you'll be reminded, as I was, that you are valued, priceless and adored! Be encouraged, be restored and then get a copy for someone you know who's broken!
Gwen uses personal life lessons and struggles, Biblical examples and a ton of scripture to convey the love, the mercy, the forgiveness, the strength and so much more that God has for me and for each one of us.
My life story isn't the same as Gwen's and I'm sure your story isn't either, but we all have struggles and times we are broken. I was encouraged in a way that was not a list of "you need to do this or that" to be restored followed by failing to accomplish that "list." It was simply by opening myself to God, trusting Him, knowing Him more and His love for me. Gwen's book is definitely one to read!!!
This is just a wonderful book of how God takes our hurts and insecurities and re-creates them into healing and confidence. I love the testimonies that Gwen has included of others.
I love this book.
