Author: Cortney Donelson
Clay Jar, Cracked: When We’re Broken But Not Shattered guides readers through some of life's most painful and traumatic experiences. We are all like fragile jars made of clay, and life’s disappointments and tragedies threaten to destroy us. Financial ruin, the loss of a child, a daunting diagnosis, addiction, or even loss of faith leave cracks in our jars. Some are wider and deeper than others, but each weakens the whole . As these cracks occur, how do we keep from shattering? How can we find authentic joy within our cracks and avoid succumbing to hopelessness or bitterness? Clay Jar, Cracked provides bold, thoughtful, and compelling answers to these questions and suggests an answer to perhaps the most intriguing question of all: Could even the biggest cracks be worth it?

In the book, Clay Jar Cracked, When We're Broken But Not Shattered I enjoyed the author, Cortney Donelson’s refreshing transparency. Courtney shares the story of her husband’s betrayal. As a woman of faith, she demonstrates embracing the Word of God in her life. Over time, these powerful words, positively influence her life. It is fascinating to follow Cortney’s awareness of her feelings, her thoughts and their continual development. I really enjoyed discovering the various support services that she chose to navigate through this challenging journey.
It is an amazing story of how God takes painful moments in life and turns them around in wonderful ways — restoration, deepened relationships and a source of help to others. I would highly recommend Cortney’s book with its amazing discoveries.
