Loved Through Brokenness

"We are all broken. But it's the good kind of broken, because we're not meant to be perfect. And through that brokenness, we are loved."

Growing up trapped in a sexually abusive relationship, and losing the love of his life in a fire, Isken of
Movement Church (Mark Artrip, pastor) tells the story of how God healed his heart and used his painful and broken past to glorify Him.
