A New York Times bestseller! Brokenness doesn't only find us in the big things—things like illness, hardship, or grief. It can find you in the everyday. Learn to walk in a way that glorifies Jesus and receive freedom, not beyond your fear and pain, but within it.
We are fragile and we know it. Sometimes, living with Christ in a messed-up world feels less like victory and more like walking uphill. Ann Voskamp, the New York Times bestselling author of One Thousand Gifts, sits at the edge of her life and her own unspoken brokenness and asks: What if you really want to live abundantly before it's too late? What do you do if you really want to know abundant wholeness?
This one's for the lovers and the sufferers. This one's for the busted ones who are ready to bust free, the ones ready to break molds, break chains, break measuring sticks, and break all this bad brokenness with an unlikely good brokenness. You could be one of the Beloved who is broken—and still lets yourself be loved.
Ann desperately wants you to know:
God is attracted to the broken, the sin-sick, and those in needThe very things people are most ashamed of are the exact broken things that draw God to his peopleYou can live in the face of your unspoken painYou can discover and trust this broken way—the way to not be afraid of broken things
The Broken Way is simple in presentation, written in Ann’s unique style—a new way for desperate Christians in need of a fresh revelation of the grace of God.

Bestselling author and speaker Voskamp (One Thousand Gifts) encourages readers to find love in their suffering and brokenness. She begins her memoir in the raw emotion of remembering a time in her teens when she cut herself on a broken jar to relieve an intractable pain she felt welling up inside her from an unidentifiable source. She compares this moment to the turmoil her own teenage daughter has been experiencing feelings of disconnect, loneliness, and unworthiness. In 18 superbly developed chapters, she goes on to detail real life stories that will leave readers alternately weeping freely and celebrating ecstatically. One of the most poignant anecdotes tells of Voskamp's 40th birthday: she spent the day with her family, visiting a nursing home, a coffee shop, and other places in their neighborhood to deliver gifts and pay for strangers' coffee. Readers will find inspiration in Voskamp's wonderful goal of attaining peace and closure after such tragic occurrences as losing a good friend to cancer. Tracking back and forth across the same broken ground, Voskamp's work is no light reading. Those who summon up the courage to engage her weighty subject matter will discover a road map for charting the "brokenness that makes a canvas for God's light."
