"God Loves Broken People (And Those Who Pretend They’re Not)"
Contributor Two Contributor Two
A desperate question once asked of Jesus by the disciples was “Teacher, don’t You care if we drown?” In her new book, God Loves Broken People (And Those Who Pretend They’re Not), Sheila Walsh shares that despite pain, despite tragedy, despite the brokenness that we all experience at some point in our lives, the answer is a resounding yes. God does not always prevent us from experiencing pain, but He does indeed care.

As Walsh puts it, “…even when I am a broken lamb limping after the Shepherd, I remain utterly convinced of one unalterable thing: the Shepherd loves me.” She shares painful stories from her own life and from the lives of many others—stories of losing a child, dealing with cancer, mental illness and other horrors— and the power of the God who is bigger than any hardship.

Throughout each honest and life-affirming chapter, the author shows how personal brokenness can open doors of intimacy with Jesus Christ that might never open in any other way and reminds readers that the Savior Himself chose a path of suffering because of His overwhelming love for each one of us.

Walsh is currently completing her Masters in Theology, is a best-selling author with more than four million books sold and a featured speaker at Women of Faith conferences. She has reached millions of women by artfully combining honesty, vulnerability and humor with lessons from God’s Word.
