I enjoyed the message of this book and the honesty of the author as she laid bare her struggles. Her perseverance and faith are to be admired. However, as a former technical writer assistant, I found the many errors very distracting. To cite a few, on page 12, Mosiah 3:19, reads "things which the Lord TEETH fit" but should read "things which the Lord SEETH fit". Another on page 105, reads "And said, Verily I SAW unto you" but should read "And said, Verily I SAY unto you". These are just two examples, more can be found on pages 109, 112, 117, 133, 150. Please understand I am not criticizing the author or the content, just the proof reader/publisher.
I wish I would have had been able to read this book a long time ago! Navigating my way through my teens and twenties would have been very different if I had! Tiffany is honest and relatable as she shares her own journey--hitting rock bottom and finding her way out through Christ's grace. I haven't read many books I would consider life changing, but Embracing the Broken certainly was for me. Perfectionist or not, this book would be well worth the read for any follower of Christ. One of my favorite excerpts (there are so many!): "Accessing Christ's grace continually requires a mind, heart, and soul that knows its dependency on Christ. It requires a heart that loves Him more than men. It requires a soul that earnestly aches for more of Him. By keeping our brokenness hidden, we don't allow Christ to touch it. But when we let go of pride, when we accept our nothingness and total dependency on Him, then He can step in and repair our broken pieces. Christ's greatest work comes from the weakest things of the earth." I highly recommend this book.
