A crumbling statue. A torn tapestry. A discolored painting.
Artisans can reclaim exquisite beauty from the broken, frayed, and shattered—perhaps once thought beyond repair. But what about us? What of the wounds that keep us from living the life we want to live?
In Tattered and Mended: The Art of Healing the Wounded Soul
readers walk through a gallery of reclaimed and restored art as well as broken and restored lives of those who have gone before us. With a gentle touch and personable wisdom, Cynthia Ruchti shows how even the most threadbare soul can once again find healing and hope.
Ruchti writes with a gentle, poetic style that will speak to those who are feeling beat down and torn up. Her word flow, saturated with grace and hope. In an almost casual manner, she assures the readers that, just as broken and torn things can be restored into something beautiful, so can their lives. And what’s more, the signs of brokenness can become a badge of honor. Something even more beautiful than the original design.
This is a tender book that is perfect for someone in the exploratory or hopeless stages of healing. It’s probably a bit soft for someone aggressively pursuing healing, but may provide a respite when hopelessness sets in.
