How do we hold on to hope when problems mount and feelings numb?

Uninvited, invaders march into our lives—challenges, disappointments, loss. At times, these invaders creep in softly; often they blatantly barge in. Either way, the thieves break through our protective doors and wreak havoc. As we struggle to survive the onslaught, hope fades and we wonder if we will ever hope again.

This is where author Barbara Higby found herself when her daughter suddenly died. Previous losses had tutored her in how to renew hope—a failed adoption process, the death of newborn twins, the challenges of a disabled son, the collapse of her calling—but her daughter’s death plunged her to new a depth of hopelessness. Barbara’s story of bringing life to her shattered hope will encourage others who are disheartened by loss.

I Was Broken, Too offers four paths to restore hope in the battle-weary.

  • H—Hold your Eyes Higher
  • O—Open your Heart to God’s Opportunities
  • P—Ponder the Positive, not the Problems
  • E—Expect Grace

I Was Broken, Too was written for you, the broken, disillusioned, and wounded. If loss of any kind has assaulted your hope, follow the paths that revived Barbara’s—they are achievable, and hope is possible. You will discover that what God has done for her, He will do for you.
