Overview

God delights in transforming lives. In Broken Into Beautiful, singer and songwriter Gwen Smith’s first book, she tells the real–life stories of women with shattered dreams, shameful secrets, and damaged souls, and the God who makes them beautiful again. Each chapter features a compelling personal story coupled with relevant biblical teaching and application. Readers will meet women wounded by infidelity, abortion, widowhood, abuse, and other tragic events, only to discover the joy of being restored by a loving heavenly Father.

The book will remind women of all ages of God’s willingness to eternally forgive and forget and of His heart to transform broken lives. Readers will be empowered to believe truth, to remember grace, and to live for God’s greater purposes. Broken into Beautiful is ultimately about a beautiful Savior who became broken for us so that all who are broken can be transformed to reflect His beauty.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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."
Peg Wildermuth

"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."
Jane Currin
