Do you find yourself searching for answers to the reasons behind your pain? In A Magnificent Blunder: From Divorce and Despair to Awe and Wonder, author Garry Leep shares how God can use even the most painful seasons to lead you into a boundless and beautiful life. From growing up in a spiritually-dead environment to absorbing biblical misconceptions for twenty years, Leep was lost, seeing God through the lenses of confusion and fear. His most difficult moment in life--losing the woman he loved to divorce--brought him to the deepest depths of grief and despair. Yet on his three-year journey of heartache, Leep went from the outposts of sadness to finding communion with the most beautiful, loving, and awesome God. It wasn't until his state of immense brokenness that Leep truly came to understand the gospel of Jesus Christ and God's desire to shape his journey of emotional wounds into an adventure of joy and wonder. After experiencing the amazing grace of God that brought him out of his personal grief, Leep discovered the truth of God's love that can restore a shattered past and repair a broken heart. Through this profound testimony of restoration and overcoming, Leep invites you into an intimate relationship with your heavenly Father who wants to transform your most painful moments into opportunities for spiritual growth. If you have endured extreme moments of grieving, A Magnificent Blunder will inspire you to discover the God of love and embrace a journey of awe and wonder.
