Find beauty and hope by facing and dealing with the messiness of family life.
The family is an imperfect institution. Broken people become broken parents who make broken families. But actually, broken is normal and exactly where God wants us.


In The Beauty of Broken, Elisa Morgan, one of today's most respected female Christian leaders, for the first time shares her very personal story of brokenness?from her first family of origin to the second, represented by her husband and two grown children. Over the years, Elisa's family struggled privately with issues many parents must face, including:

alcoholism and drug addiction infertility and adoption teen pregnancy and abortion divorce, homosexuality, and death
Each story layers onto the next to reveal the brokenness that comes into our lives without invitation. ?We've bought into the myth of the perfect family,? says Elisa. ?Formulaic promises about the family may have originated in well-meaning intentions, but such thinking isn?t realistic. It's not helpful. It's not even kind.?


Instead she offers hope in the form of ?broken family values? that allow parents to grow and thrive with God. Values such as commitment, humility, relinquishment, and respect carry us to new places of understanding. Owning our brokenness shapes us into God's best idea for us and enables us to discover the beauty in ourselves and each member of our family.
