Life is Messy
There is no subtitle for the new book Life is Messy--the title really says it all. The premise of this work is that someone who is broken by life's heartaches can be healed and restored and, in the end, become more beautiful than before.
Acclaimed author Matthew Kelly is raw and real in this book, reflecting honestly on the struggles of his life--from the cross of cancer to the scourge of personal betrayals. In some respects, this book could be considered Kelly's own "Dark Night of the Soul."
Thankfully, he offers hope for the future, encouraging readers to address their spiritual needs, to simplify their lives, and to speak up in the aftermath of trauma.
Kelly writes, "The obvious occurred to me as I began to recover. good people want to hear what you have to say. If you don't open your mouth, you will not be heard. People can't hear your thoughts or read your mind. If you don't ask, the answer will always be no. If you don't let people know what you need, your needs will go unmet."
This book is unlike any of Kelly's previous works. He pulls from his private journals to lay his soul bare. In journeying with him, the reader can identify his or her own need for healing, and seek the grace to courageously carry on.
