Winner of the Editors Choice Award
Embracing the Beauty and the Broken is more of a conversation with a friend than a book. In thirty powerful, raw and real, chapters of conflict and resolution, Margarete shares compelling stories of loss and overcoming obstacles with authenticity and humor. Each life-crisis shared provides a valuable message of choices, decisions, and the power of teachable life lessons. One lesson is that we are not defined by our past. You can learn how to push past years of self-doubt, unforeseen obstacles, and heartbreak by being encouraged to take action in your own life in the “Take it or leave it” sections of the book. At the end of each chapter, Margarete provides practical exercises and resources for anyone wanting a more in-depth exploration of their own personal growth and journey. This thought-provoking book inspires positive personal internal development by giving the reader hope, motivation, and the confidence to live their own best life.
Embracing the Beauty in the Broken Reviews
Thank you Margarete for the gift you’ve given your readers with this treasure of a book. While we all experience life crisis differently, Margarete reminds us that it is within this human experience that we are united. From the very first chapter, you will know her as a friend who sees YOU- your heart and your “broken” – and can walk you through how to not only see, but feel, the beauty in both. Anyone ready to break from a crisis-heavy world who craves a new lease on life will devour this book and the peace, courage, and perspective it brings.
Embracing the Beauty in the Broken is an incredibly moving, inspirational book. The book’s premise is summarized well by the epigraph to the chapter “Obliteration”: “Strength isn’t about how much you can handle before you break; it’s about how much you can handle after you’re broken.” That idea is something I will take with me long after today. Nobody escapes life without being broken in some way, and by courageously and vulnerably sharing your story, you are providing a beacon of hope. Kudos to you!
