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 wounds that keep us from living the life we want to live?
In Tattered and Mended, readers walk through a gallery of reclaimed and restored art as well as broken and restored lives of those who have gone before us. With a gentle touch and personable wisdom, Cynthia Ruchti shows how even the most threadbare soul can once again find healing and hope.

When we have trials and difficulties come our way, regardless of what it is, we tend to react in one of two ways. We either let it destroy us or we grow from it. Both reactions come with consequences, good and bad. I have had a number of difficult journey's in my life and I am so grateful that through it all I have had my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Recently I had the opportunity to read Cynthia Ruchti's newest release, Tattered and Mended: The Art of Healing the Wounded Soul. I so wish this book would have been around when I was going through a few of my deepest struggles like my cancer struggle and the deaths of several loved ones. The book was written in a very well organized manner, explaining stages of grief and loss, giving many wonderful scripture references to give you hope in times of despair, and sharing many raw emotion and life experiences to also give hope to whomever reads this book. I especially loved that the theme of the book was turning our trials into His glory. A truly remarkable read that I will read again when trial comes my way.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
