Broken for Use
Broken For Use
Pain and shame affect us all. It can be the pain from the death of a loved one, or the shame we experience by virtue of our own failure and sin. Whatever the cause, we can all identify with pain and shame at some level and it can feel like we have been broken.

REVIEW OF BOOKS
Broken for Use is a moving personal and spiritual memoir which is vulnerable in bold letters. If you are uptight about your faith, or exhibit Pharisaic tendencies, you won’t enjoy reading this testimony. It is for those who are comfortable with their humanity, and always grateful for the extent of the grace of God in their lives. Filled with instances of God’s grace working in human depravity, the author demonstrates that our deepest purpose and truest destination can only be fulfilled by God’s calling on our lives. I wholeheartedly recommend it for all sinners saved by grace.
