Description

Lisa Gungor thought she knew her own story: small-town girl meets boy in college and they blissfully walk down the aisle into happily ever after. Their Christian faith was their lens and foundation for everything - their marriage, their music, their dreams for the future. But as their dreams began to come true, she began to wonder if her religion was really representative of the "good news" she had been taught.

She never expected the questions to lead as far as they did when her husband told her he no longer believed in God. The death of a friend, the unraveling of relationships and career, the loss of a worldview, and the birth of a baby girl with two heart defects all led Lisa to a tumultuous place, one of depression and despair. And it was there that her perspective on everything changed. The Most Beautiful Thing I’ve Seen tells the story of what can happen when you dare to let go of what you think to be true, to shift the kaleidoscope and see new colors and dimension by way of broken pieces.

Lisa’s eloquent, soul-stirring memoir brings you to a music stage before thousands of fans and a front porch where two people whisper words that scare them to the core. It is the story of how doubt can spark the beginning of deeper faith, how a baby born with a broken heart can bring love and healing to the hearts of many, and, ultimately, how the hardest experience in life often ends up saving us.

Authentic

What an authentic story of faith, love, growth and life! No one’s story is exactly the same. Real faith, knowing Jesus, in the good and in the bad looks a lot more like Lisa’s story than many sitting in the pew every Sunday. Thanks for the encouraging reminder.

A Must Read for Every Father.

Artistic Vulnerability. Reads like a song. The most artistic autobiography I have ever read. As a father of 4 daughters and 4 granddaughters, I never appreciated the struggle that our society has heaped upon my girls. Men are encouraged to protect our girls when we would better serve them by empowering them.
No one else could have narrated her story. Broke my heart and inspired hope at the same time. a must read for every father!

This book is still changing my life

I find Lisa Gungor's voice gentle and grounding, and her message the same. She gives the gift of a faith that IS shaken, and thusly beautifully transformed into something humble and divine. This book gave me permission to give new words for God, and also new words and a new grace to myself. All I can say is thank you to the author who was brave enough to believe her story was worth telling. It really was a beautiful journey.

purely gorgeous!

I loved this book from beginning to end. Her willingness to share her story ~ the successes and the failures, her vulnerability, her ability to open your eyes to new things, to new perspectives - it ended me. In a good way.

Just fantastic!

I was so delighted by this book. The best book I have read in quite sometime. I completely related to so much of Lisa’s story. I feel as though listening to her story is helping me heal my own... thank you. Also, Lisa way of writing paired with her eloquent speaking voice is so beautifully poetic. Was so sad for it to end.

I stayed up until 4:30am listening to this beautiful book!

I started listening to this book yesterday evening and I couldn’t stop. I finally fell asleep at 4:30am after laughing and crying many times during this beautiful book- thank you Lisa!

I have followed your music for years and it is so beautiful to see your evolution. I was raised similarly and have been going thru my own metamorphosis. Even though our stories different you articulate many things my heart feels and so many things I needed to hear. Thank you for writing this book!

What. a. gift.

I needed this story right now. As a newish parent, I have been pondering much regarding life, death, suffering, parents, falling in love, staying in love. I'm storing this one away in the library of my being. Thanks, Lisa.

Love

I don’t relate to all aspects of this story (obviously, since I am a different person), but Lisa Gungor has a way with words that brings you into her story regardless of your own circumstances and inviting you to explore your own.
I cried, laughed, thought deeply, wondered, and felt more sure about myself than before I listened to this. Something about hearing another persons story helps you to remember the little things of life. The ways we all connect. The love we all share.

very grateful for this book!

I am so glad Lisa Gungor was brave and chose to share her story. It feels so lonely after leaving a faith tradition. this book makes me feel less alone!
