Secrets of Broken Pottery: Seeing the Great Potter – Being Seen by Him is a great book for believers that are still trying to find their place in religion and their spiritual life. The author writes about the real world through bible stories. What I loved most about Heidi McKendrick is how the author gets the readers to reflect on self with just a few words. Heidi McKendrick is an excellent author because the content in the book is relatable to many readers. One not only finds answers to pressing questions about God, but also gets to understand higher powers and what is expected of Christians.
The first chapters of the book talk about the broken potter, getting readers to feel free about opening up on their failures and struggles. Heidi McKendrick will get every reader to have a self-defining moment through the text in the book. The second half of the book was also resourceful; especially for readers that often look for stories that are relatable to what they are going through. I like how the author painted the characters in the bible; they do not appear to be super-beings, rather, God’s creatures that went through what many believers go through.
Secrets of Broken Pottery is a fantastically enlightening book that will help readers boost their spirituality and be closer to God. The author’s tone is friendly throughout the discussions and makes readers feel like they are in a safe space. This book will change the way you see God and inspire those traumatized by their religious experiences to put themselves back together and walk with God once again. Author Heidi McKendrick takes readers on a spiritual journey of discovery and provides a salve for the soul.

Secrets of Broken Pottery is an amazing book to read especially if you are familiar with the bible. The author uses different biblical figures, sharing their stories as written in the bible, but explains a different side that many bible readers may not be familiar with. Secrets of Broken Pottery is interesting to read because the author gives you a different perspective of things. The bible has many stories that bring spiritual healing and life lessons for believers. Reading this book makes you realize that there is a lot to be unpacked in the bible. Most of the stories are interesting to read and excite even young kids when they are introduced to bible studies.
In this book author Heidi McKendrick goes the extra mile and explains more than the basics that are taught in bible study. She selected a couple of biblical figures, broke down their characters and wrote about the impact they have. I enjoyed reading this book because Heidi McKendrick makes reading the bible look fun and thrilling. A story you have read more than once appears new when it is told by the author.
One of my favorite things about Heidi McKendrick’s writing is how she compares the stories in the bible to real life situations. You never know that you have gone through experiences biblical figures went through until you read Secrets of Broken Pottery. Stories from David, Joseph, Dinah and even Tamar occur in real life more often than anyone would imagine. Heidi McKendrick skillfully narrates these stories and gets one to reflect on their life and how their relationship with God is.
Secrets of Broken Pottery is a great book for any Christian looking to improve their relationship with God. In the book, Heidi McKendrick writes of different ways people connect with the almighty. Spirituality is intimate for some people and the author acknowledges that every individual’s relationship with God is different from the next person. Heidi McKendrick uses a warm language and knows how to engage with her readers through her narration.
I appreciate the author for referring to God as the great potter throughout the book. This makes the reader feel safe and at peace, knowing that the God they believe in is the greatest of all. Heidi’s language aside, I also appreciate her for the bible scriptures she shares through the chapters. Every chapter in the book spoke to me on a different level. The last chapters were however my favorite as they made me examine myself as a mortal who believes in God, and my purpose on earth.
