"Tattered and Mended" by Cynthia Ruchti

Repair, mend, fix - terms used to deal with something that is tattered or torn. Lives can be tattered and torn causing them to need to be mended. In her new book, Cynthia Ruchti uses examples of repaired artwork to demonstrate how lives can also be mended. 
It's a worthless and can't be repaired! That's too tattered and scarred to be useful! Words that can be said about things and about lives. What is seemingly useless to one person, is a gem to another. Cynthia Ruchti uses objects to show how a broken life can be repaired and made to shine. God doesn't give up on us. Instead He encourages and remakes those broken lives. Feeling broken, discouraged, battered? Christ wants to help you heal and this book may just be what you need.

I really enjoyed the parallels Cynthia Ruchti makes with "things" and lives. It is easy to overlook something because of a scrape or a tear, and it is easy to overlook a person with a scar. This book will make you look at your life and see how God can mend (has mended), and that the ability to mend should be shared with others. I received my review copy from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for participation in the blog tour.

About the book:
Tattered and Mended: The Art of Healing the Wounded Soul(Abingdon, July 2015)

A crumbling statue. A torn tapestry. A discolored painting.

Artisans can reclaim exquisite beauty from the broken, frayed, and hopefully 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, 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.
