Glow-in-the-dark hope. That’s how writer and broadcaster Cynthia Ruchti describes how God meets us in the depths of our despair with the promise of transformation. What an illuminating image! Using some of the most important, soul-mending topics from her radio shows, Ruchti offers time-tested wisdom in her book Tattered and Mended. She helps us realize that we don’t have to resign ourselves to lives of brokenness or continue to pretend that all is well. Even wounds we fear are damaged beyond repair can be healed through Christ who takes our ragged edges and missing pieces and mends us into something both whole and beautiful.
