How do you survive when life falls apart?

Life can change in an instant. Sara Ward understands this deeply.

In less than forty-eight hours, her world is turned upside down by two devastating tragedies. The heartbreaking loss of her child forces her to wrestle with difficult questions:

How will I survive this? Can anything good come out of brokenness?

As she searches for answers, she discovers a new purpose and a life-changing realization. From the worst pain, beautiful gifts can emerge.

Made for Hope shows us what God has to offer in the midst of our brokenness as we grasp to make it through a difficult season.

A heartfelt and vulnerable story, it provides hope for those who have gone through grief and loss.

Made for Hope offers us:

  • fifteen unexpected gifts we can find in brokenness, no matter the circumstances
  • inspiration to rediscover hope, joy, peace, and redemption in our pain
  • validation for all those who have grieved the death of a loved one or a dream unrealized
  • hope that God can take our worst tragedies and give us surprising gifts

Made for Hope: Discovering Unexpected Gifts in Brokenness reminds us of timeless truths and enduring hope.

Made for Hope is your go-to guide for grieving friends or yourself.
