Life is often described as a journey. It’s a journey with ups and downs, experiences both full of joy and pain. There are many ways that one can confront and deal with their past, but Broken and Made Whole is not just the narrative of one personal journey through life; it is also a journey of ascent which all those who seek to follow the Lord Jesus Christ will undertake as they learn to be His true disciple. Mariann McKay provides a glimpse into her life, recounting her experiences with abuse and rejection, shedding light on how her Christian journey through faith heals and her triumph on the way to wholeness. ‘I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.’ (Philippians 3:14) For those standing at the foot of the mountain of the walk of faith, there is honest warning of the necessity of trusting through painful seasons and the need to persevere. As we climb, the places this journey takes us give us wider and wider views of the amazing love and care of God for each one of us.
