The Heart of the Author


Jul 19, 2018

Everyone in the world faces hardship and loss in life whether it’s a failed relationship, financial crisis, loss of health or home, or some other unforeseen circumstance. If you find yourself at the end of something, wondering how to move on, where to even start, Putting It Together Again When It’s All Falling Apart will teach you actionable steps you can take to rebuild a shattered life. 

The book is based on the principles in the Old Testament story of Nehemiah rebuilding a wall that had been in shambles for hundreds of years. It took him only 52 days to rebuild it because he had the courage to do it, and he knew where to start and how to get the job done. 

Neh. 2:20 “The God of heaven will give us success. We his servants will start rebuilding...” 

Restoring a broken thing is tough work and often more difficult and tedious than building something new. But the restoration can be more beautiful than the original with God as the artist. You are His masterpiece, and He is not going to throw you out and start over. He will carefully rebuild and restore every detail in order to reveal His glory in you. 

The same principles Nehemiah used to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem can help you rebuild your life. Author Tom Holladay spells out specific steps, practical things you can do to move forward and accomplish what God is calling you to do.

Learn how to find strength and courage to face it all and what to do to get started (because starting is often the hardest part, and fear is usually the biggest obstacle).

Find out how mourning and praise work together to move you forward…

how setting aside pride can ease your burden…

how defending yourself may destroy your work…

but protecting your work may save your life…

how success can derail you or success can propel you…

and how joy is the key to it all.
