Sometimes it just amazes me at the ways in which God orchestrates certain things so that they all come together at exactly the right moment for exactly the right people. It’s pretty much been the story of my life for the past couple of years but it’s also how I feel about Mo Isom’s book, Wreck My Life. This book and Mo’s incredible story came to me exactly when it needed to and left me truly inspired and encouraged by each and every word.
Up until recently, I really wasn’t familiar with Mo Isom or her incredible story, I actually just happened on this book one day as I was scrolling through Twitter. Annie Downs, another (amazing) Christian author, tweeted that everyone should check out Wreck My Life and mentioned something about a launch team. It grabbed my attention and I saw that to apply for the launch team, you just had to send Mo a direct message on Instagram. So, I snapped a quick selfie with the caption “this is my excited face” and sent along my information. I’ll do anything for a book, apparently. A few days later, I got a selfie back from Mo and she said that I was a part of the Wreck My Life launch team so clearly my not-so-inner dork prevailed.
This past Friday, I received my early copy of Wreck My Life in the mail and immediately dove in. I was captivated from the very first chapter, friends. Mo shares her story from broken to bold in a way that filled me with a mix of awe, inspiration, and conviction. God is so good, you guys.
Mo and I may have different stories, but we’re still so similar. We’ve both had our lives completely wrecked by God and we’ve both had our lives so beautifully stitched back together by the unbreakable thread that is the Holy Spirit. For Mo, her wreckage was an eating disorder, the suicide of her father, and a horrific car accident. For me, my wreckage was losing six family members in two years. Different stories. But both resulting in something beautiful.
The second that this book hits shelves tomorrow (August 2nd), you have to snatch it up, my friends. You will not regret it one bit. Head over here to order your copy!
