About The Book:Tattered and Mended: The Art of Healing the Wounded Soul (Abingdon, July 2015). A crumbling statue. A torn tapestry. A discolored painting. Artisans can reclaim exquisite beauty from the broken, frayed, and hopefully shattered---perhaps once thought beyond repair. But what about us? What of the wounds that keep us from living the life we want to live? In Tattered and Mended, readers walk through a gallery of reclaimed and restored art as well as broken and restored lives of those who have gone before us. With a gentle touch and personable wisdom, Cynthia Ruchti shows how even the most threadbare soul can once again find healing and hope.

I have been struggling with the feelings of brokenness and even as a pastor not knowing how I could fix it. The thing Ruchti reminded me was that God is in control....not me! Ruchti reminded me that life is not always as we WANT it to be, but if God takes us to something He will be there to see us through it! Cynthia Ruchti is a master wordsmith and this book is one of those that needs to be found in every church library, every pastor's office, every Christian counselors book shelf. It was excellent and sends the reader on their way with hope in their heart.

I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
