Review of God Loves Broken People Sheila Walsh


I was looking forward to reading this book because I have read several of Ms. Walsh’s books and thoroughly enjoyed them.  I chose this book because I am going through a difficult time and hoped to be encouraged and uplifted by this work.  I did get some enlightening thoughts from this read but all in all found myself scratching my head and wondering how this fits into be broken.
I did not completely grasp the concept of brokeness in the example of Ms. Walsh’s husband and son being late in arriving home.  I did however get the idea that much fear and doubt can be avoided if we cling to Jesus and his grace.
Although, I did not find this book overall encouraging or easy to grasp, I did find some nuggets that made it worth the read.
