In our fragmented fragile world, there are many wounded people. Many of those who have encountered the love of God in Jesus find that even when their wounds are healed, scars remain. It takes a sensitive writer, a wounded healer to come alongside other wounded people to turn their feet toward paths of healing.
The author dives deep into her own story, sensitively tells the stories of others, and seeks to help the reader re-write the script of their lives with the gospel. This mixture of personal narrative, biblical input, guided times of reflection, prayers and creative parables helps to reorient the wounded and provides words that sustain the weary.
The author paints a relatable picture of what it means to be vulnerable and provides accessible help to those who want to bring their vulnerability to God. At the far end of the tunnel of woundedness, it becomes clear that we are held by the God who loves us.
In the meantime, we need lots of reassurance that this message of hope has our name on it. The author gently but persistently takes our hand and takes us to a place where we can experience this hope in our own situations.
