Mended: Pieces of a Life Made Whole is the third book by author, speaker, and blogger Angie Smith. It contains 31 devotionals developed from posts on her blog, a blog she started in order to journal her way through the pain of losing a child. Over time, Angie learned how to let God mend her heart. In this book, she gently leads her readers to do the same.
Each devotional starts with a verse or two of Scripture, moves into the text, and concludes with one or two life application ideas. Angie’s devotionals are observations from life that help bring more of God’s truth to light. My favorite was one she called “Sketched.” In this particular devotional Angie shares how she sketches the future in her mind, but is sometimes confused or disappointed when reality doesn’t color it in the way she anticipates or hopes. She is learning to let God complete her sketches His way in His time. She is learning to trust in His outcomes rather than her own.
If your heart is in need of healing and you are looking for a short devotional to nurture your thoughts, I recommend Mended to you. I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
