How Right Living Was My Brokenness

the broken way home

I believed in Jesus and redemption before I could spell it. “Jesus loves me, this I know.”  “I once was lost, but now I’m found.” At 8-years-old, lost doesn’t mean much. Because I am a rule-follower made righteous in Christ, I never felt lost or broken, until a broken home during my high school years fractured me and birthed unrest. The rules didn’t work. The law didn’t lead me home, so I set out to find it, not conscious that I ever started the journey.

Today I am guest posting for Amber Haines, author of Wild in the Hollow. Read How Right Living Was My Brokenness. Also, spend a few minutes here reading the first chapter of Wild in the Hollow. You can find a copy on the shelves of Barnes & Noble or at Amazon.

  1. I relate so well with what you’ve written. Yes, community, grace, being vulnerable with each other in our brokenness. I love what you shared…so much truth. I’m visiting from RaRa link up. I’ll be back, for sure!

  2. You write so beautifully about what I think is a common problem for many Christians, at least it has been for me; that of being a rule follower trying to follow Christ. I found your post on the Thursday Thread on Christian Mom Blogger’s.
