Broken But Beautiful

31 Day Devotional for Grieving Families

Broken but beautiful sounds like a bit of an oxymoron. How can something broken be beautiful? This 31-day devotional will share how my husband and I, with God’s help, turned a broken situation into something beautiful. I pray that this book brings hope to the hopeless and encourages the discouraged
