This is the most inspirational book I have ever read. I have Multiple Sclerosis and it helps me get through rough days and also reminds me that everyone goes through difficult times, which makes us appreciate every good day. I give this book to my friends when they are going through dark times in their lives. It is always appreciated. Thank you Carol!

“I bought this book 4 years before I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I picked it up and read it again after my diagnosis. I can’t describe the comfort that this book provides. I actually hug it after I read it. Thank you for your gift in creating this wonderful book!”

“I bought this book in 1999 after my nephew was killed in a car accident. I have provided this book over 60 times to family and friends who have been experiencing a challenging time—be it death, divorce, cancer, a broken heart, or job difficulties. I have had many thoughtful thank you notes and believe it to be treasured by all.”

“I got this book from my aunt that went to the beach. I am in my early teens and I read this book and it really helps me get through the day. I just read it right before I got on to look it up. And I had really had a bad day and was depressed then. When I read this book it just helps me realize that I am not the only one that’s had a bad day and definitely not had the worst day and it makes me think of the people in Haiti that just have it bad. Well, tomorrow I am taking it to my mamaw to let her read it after the death of my grandmother. I think my mamaw needs to read this book I think this is the best book to get you through hard times I want to say thanks so much to the author for writing this extraordinary book.”

“I was introduced to My Beautiful Broken Shell in June 2001 after it had been confirmed that I was in need of a heart transplant. A dear and close cousin shared her copy with me in what I considered my journey for life. I was full of fear of the unknown, but after reading this book and reaffirming my faith in God, I knew that there was hope in God’s promise to His children and all I had to do was believe. Thank you, Carol for these great books, and may God continue to anoint you with written and spoken words.”

“This book has been very well received by many friends. I keep a few copies on hand to help someone who has lost someone close or when life seems to be on a negative course for a long period of time. It’s a wonderful help!”

“This book, My Beautiful Broken Shell, was given to me after the death of my mother in April 2002. I give this book between two and six months after someone has been through the death of a loved one to let them know we realize they are still hurting. Being a faithful Christian, I write in each book that these are earthly words of comfort as are God’s Word in the Scriptures.”
