Book Review: The Beauty of Broken by Eliza Morgan



The Beauty of Broken is the very personal story of Elisa Morgan, former CEO of MOPS and her family - lumps and all. The Morgan family stood its trials, and generously shares their story of brokenness with us, sharing so that we do not feel alone in our own brokenness. From teen pregnancy to rebellion to addiction to  divorce, Morgan spares nothing - and shares God's Grace all along the way. Filled with laughter and tears and God's love, I found Morgan's tale to be an inspiring one - filled with, yes, beauty.

God uses brokenness - broken people, broken vessels - often. He sanctifies brokenness and uses those broken places - the cracks and the holes, the mess and the pain - to share His Love, to share His Plan for us, to allow us to submit to His Grace. Morgan's story shows us the beauty in this - the beauty in submitting to God's Will when all else seems futile. I consider it a must-read for any Christian parent.
