Publisher's Summary

In Heart Made Whole, Christa Black Gifford shares her own stories of loss, betrayal, and personal tragedy, chronicling clear steps to redemption to help those in pain invite the true healer into the tangled mess of their broken hearts. Gifford reminds listeners that pain is not their enemy; however, unhealed pain can become their greatest foe if it's not taken to Jesus.

Growing up as a preacher's kid, Gifford had been submerged in Christian culture for decades when she uncovered the truth - that there were broken parts of her heart that weren't on friendly terms with the god who lived inside. Through disappointments and traumas, she had learned to guard her heart from God, keeping her angry, entrapped, and disconnected. As struggles and hardships continued, she finally learned to run toward her relationship with God when things got hard instead of running away from him like she had in the past. The more that she did this - building her heart's capacity for intimacy and deep relationship - the more her heart began to heal from the inside out. She teaches listeners to access the solution that's already living inside of them - the god who forever made their hearts a home.

When trials and tragedy hit our lives in a fallen world, our hearts can get smashed to bits, and we end up putting God on trial and blaming him for the mess. But Christa helps listeners understand that they don't have to live controlled by their circumstances - or angry with God. Instead, she provides powerful insight and practical steps to turn the painful fire that comes to destroy us into an unexpected friend that can produce our greatest healing.

The condition of the heart determines the condition of life - and the heart can be bound up and healed, producing freedom and abundant life. Christa helps listeners experience steps to turn their pain into the healing and wholeness available to every believer.

    "Uh-MAZING!!"

    I stumbled across this gem of a book at a time in my life just before I was diagnosed with PTSD. God's timing is perfect! Christa's emotional narration helped me feel things I didn't want to feel and helped calm my racing thoughts as she concisely laid out insights that drew me closer to God and the sanctuary that He had prepared for me in my own heart where the Holy Spirit met me and bound my wounds, giving me back my health and healing my wounds. (Jeremiah 30:17) I am so grateful for how God used Christa and this book in my life. I pray that many others will also be willing to receive the gift of healing that this book imparts through encouraging increasing intimacy with God and His Word.❤️

    "Vulnerable, Raw, Transparent, Anointed"

    These are just a few words to describe this book. It is full of truth, wisdom, and practical steps to take towards letting the Lord make your heart whole. Christa teaches us to embrace our pain, listen intently to our heart, and to stay connected with Jesus rather than block him from our pain. I will heartily recommend this book to every person I know, and listen to it many more times. Her narration perfectly captures the heart of her book.

    "Raw, healing truth..."

    I have never read a book that led me so deeply into the recesses of my heart and exposed the roots of hurt and pain that resides there, and at the same time, revealed the truth of the Savior standing right there, ready to *love* me and my broken heart to wholeness. It's a masterpiece straight from the Master's heart.

    "Healing my broken heart..."

    Since I purchased the hardcopy I knew I wanted to hear CBG and about Goldie's gift 'anointed to heal the broken hearted' every day so I got an Audible subscription bc Goldie and her mom/dad/family are healing my broken, shattered heart, tiny piece by tiny piece. When I leave this earth, go to God I truly believe it will be w/a 'heart made whole', having grace and gratitude for my journey, every step of my way because of Goldie. Please put "God loves ugly" on Audible too. Thank You, God (CBG & Audible too!) for this precious gift You have given me ... forEva grateful. Besitos, Goldie!💕

    "Amazing testimony for Jesus"

    This book really helped me open my heart more to receiving Jesus fully after losing my 3 year old son suddenly In April 2016. Her authenticity is real and I love how she shared her grief so openly, yet still points back to Jesus for heart healing. Thankful for this resource and for Jesus!

    "Life changing"

    My best friend recommended this book to me and it was really timely but really hard to get through; not because it's a burden to listen to - it's not at all - but because Christa doesn't pull any punches. I'm excited to move forward and apply the Open Heart Surgery questions to my life and start treating my heart like parts of it have cancer - and giving those parts the time with Jesus that they need to heal.

    I would recommend this book a thousand times to anyone who needs Jesus to come and show them exactly how the godhead feels for them - I've already begun.
