Publisher's Summary

Your soul holds a massive record collection: melodies, rhythms, and bass lines. Memories that ask you to dance and memories that haunt you in a minor key. Lies that become soundtracks to your days while truths play too softly to be heard.

Spoken word poet Amena Brown’s broken records played messages about how she wasn’t worthy to be loved. How to Fix a Broken Record chronicles her journey of healing as she’s allowed the music of God’s love to replace the scratchy taunts of her past. From bad dates to marriage lessons at Waffle House, from learning to love her hair to learning to love an unexpected season of life, from discovering the power of saying no and the freedom to say yes, Amena offers keep-it-real stories your soul can relate to.

The hurtful words of others and the failures of your past often determine what record you play the most in your mind. Those painful repetitions can become loud at the most inopportune time, keeping you from speaking up, pursuing your dreams, and growing closer to God.

Recognize the negative messages that play on repeat every day in your mind. Learn how to replace them with the truth that you are a beloved child of God. And discover how to laugh along the way as you find new joy in the beautiful music of your life.

A bonus audio track is included in the How to Fix a Broken Record audiobook, which features a special spoken-word performance by author Amena Brown.

Excellent words

Authentic, honest, funny, necessary. I appreciate the vulnerability in the words and the genuine way Amena connects with her audience through storytelling. Highly recommended.

Beautiful and thoughtful.

I really enjoyed this! I loved that the author read this book. It lent an awsome touch to the more personal parts of the narrative. The poetry was sooo very good.
