Cynthia Ruchti, in her new book, “Tattered and Mended book coverTattered and Mended” published by Abingdon Press gives us The Art of Healing the Wounded Soul.

From the back cover:   A crumbling statue. A torn tapestry. A discolored painting.

Artisans can reclaim exquisite beauty from the broken, frayed, and hopelessly shattered—perhaps once thought beyond repair. But what about us? What of the scars and broken places we hide inside? What of the wounds that keep us from living the life we want to live? Can our tattered souls ever be mended?

In Tattered and Mended, author Cynthia Ruchti offers and invitation to think about soul-mending as a divine art form, to show us that God doesn’t just heal wounded souls, He heals artfully.

With a gentle touch and personable wisdom, Ruchti offers hope for your own broken places. She opens the door to a gallery of the reclaimed and restored, reflects on a tapestry of stories not unlike your own, and helps you discover that even the most threadbare soul can once again find healing and hope.

If a statue gets damaged there is a special artist that is called to repair it. If a painting gets damaged there is a different special artist who will repair it. How about a damaged tapestry or stained glass? You guessed it special artists to repair and restore. I never thought about it before however if we have special artists to bring back to full glory art that once was believed to be beyond repair then how much more can we believe God to do? Each one of us is a work of art, His art. And that means He is the only artist that can repair and restore us back to the masterpiece He created us to be. Ms. Ruchti has given us eleven chapters that give us hope and confidence that God will take our tattered and broken lives and, will not only heal you, but make you better than you were before. This is a wonderful book that you might refer back to again when you feel damaged. Ms. Ruchti has given us lots to think about.  This will also make a wonderful gift for family and friends so that they can be healed and restored as well.
