Jesus promises peace and trouble for his followers. But most of us accept the peace and are confused and angry when adversity comes our way.
All-American soccer star Mo Isom knows the struggle firsthand. While her life seemed like a success, she was battling an eating disorder, the suicide of her father, and a horrific car accident. It wasn't until God wrecked her life that she discovered the glory of renewal through Jesus Christ and that wreckage can be sacred rather than scarring. Listeners take the journey from broken to bold with her and learn to surrender their lives to the king who was wrecked on their behalf.

Wonderfully descriptive,honest book
Mo bravely lays her heart on the table on so many issues she is redeemed from. She shares how she was healed from each one. That healer is always Jesus. This book is applicable to both women and men of all ages. She is a gifted weaver of words and I couldn't stop listening til it was done.Can think of so many people in my life that this book would help. Love the chapter on forgiveness. She is wise beyond her years. Looking forward to her next book " Sex, Jesus and Conversations the church forgot"

Couldn't Stop Listening!
I first "discovered" Mo accidentally as I was watching YouTube videos on LSU soccer -I was intrigued, so I started watching and reading about her story and I was blown away at her message. I showed My daughter who was 8 at the time some videos of her and she seemed to instantly connect with her...2 years later, we've kept up with Mo on Facebook and such, and when her book came out, Elissa put it high on her Christmas list! I wanted to listen to it first in case there were things in it she shouldn't hear right now...and all I can say is I guess it's really up to each parents' discretion if they're thinking about giving it to their child, and the child's maturity level. I don't want to give away any of the book and I don't want to steer anyone away by all means-there are a couple of mature words used (porn, masturbation) but keep in mind this is a CHRISTIAN-based book(!) and in its context is not inappropriate, I promise! I found myself remembering my own young adulthood and the moment I realized how unexpected and treacherous paths can sometimes lead to something even better than we ever could have imagined, if we just have faith and realize we are truly not the ones in control, hard as we try sometimes. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I'm so glad it was Mo who read it! It was awesome :)

Well worth a listen
I thought this story was very honestly and powerfully told and the author's faith really shone through. Quotes from the Word of God were weaved in which was a wonderful bonus for me and helps the book to resonate. It is a story of transformation in Christ that will inspire those who have faced struggles. The chapter on eating disorder and the role the enemy plays in this was very revealing and a helpful insight. I think Mo could really help young girls and be a role model for them. I hope she's getting the opportunity to witness in schools. God bless
