Item description for Forever Altered, Yet Unbroken by Kasey M. Carter...
Overview Alter is defined as 'to make different without changing into something else.' However, when a precious child is tragically lost by family and friends, the alteration forever changes the mindset and body of those detrimentally affected. While there is no complete panacea for suffering the ultimate tragedy, Forever Altered, Yet Unbroken offers a message of hope and encouragement by having relentless faith in God and a dependence on Him despite the tragic loss of a child. Though a deeper understanding about grief is vital to the healing process, author Kasey M. Carter's primary focus is to provide hope and encouragement to readers by allowing them to see and feel God's love and comforting presence. Powerful and helpful scriptures are incorporated throughout the book in order to better educate readers on how to maintain faith and not question God through His predestined plan for their lives. Readers will recognize how this tragedy can be turned into the perfect witnessing opportunity to share their story of faith in God through adversity if they will simply utilize it. Though we are all Forever Altered by the tragic loss of a child, we are Unbroken by God's grace and His inexhaustible love for us.

Conflicting Oct 5, 2009
From the introduction, first chapter, right away, as I'm reading, I see many contradictions. Mainly, a lot of personal feelings she expresses are not supported scripturally, for example on page 14, "God never gives us more than our bodies can handle mentally and/or physically." When I read a book by a Christian author (or someone who claims to be), it's very important for the author to be clear on what was her personal experience (belief/feelings) at the time, and what can be Scripturally supported. A lot of going back and forth with Scripture and then personal feelings makes this book a confusing read. She has a lot of "maybe this and maybe that". Maybe God ALLOWING sin in order to bless others?? (page 18) In one part of her book, she talks about how God is not a genie. Yet later on she states specifically "God granted our wish"! The last thing I'll touch on, is the overall excessive questioning. What dissapointed me was with all the questions I had hoped to hear about how these things were demonstrated in the author's life. It happened very seldom, as a matter of fact, I felt that most of the things the author was "preaching" were not demonstrated in her actual stories. I was disconcerted with places where she would go on and on about God's control, and then say "Seven months later, MY HUSBAND AND I decided that we wanted to concieve again." At times when the questions got very persistent, I felt almost as if I were being scolded. For this reason, I would not recommend this book for a mother who has recently lost a child. Maybe later on, they can read this and relate, but for someone who just experienced this, I think they would be too overwhelmed being told the things this book has to say, just based on my own experience with losing a child.
Unbroken - shaken, rattled and knocked down - but unbroken Aug 4, 2009
This book gives Christ centered hope and encouragement. Kasey uses her own experiences & the knowledge her knowledge of God's character, which she gained in part from these experiences, to give others hope in difficult times. She also incorporates God's Word throughout this book to help us understand how, with God's guidance and love we can move forward after such a tragedy. I recommend it to anyone who has experienced the loss of a child.
Hope and Encouragement Aug 2, 2009
This book is beautifully written and backed with scriptures full of hope and encouragement. Kasey Carters book has been such a blessing to me and my family in dealing with the recent loss of a special little boy who touched our lives with his love of God and family. I only wish I had had this wonderful book to read along with my Bible when I miscarried years ago. We thank you Kasey for letting God use you to help us deal with our loss through your book of helpful and powerful scripture which allowed us to feel God's love and comfort. Thanks also for sharing your experience and loss with us. I look foreward to reading more of your christian books in the future.
a Blessing to read Jul 31, 2009
This book is truly a blessing to read for anyone facing loss of a loved one or any other tragedy in life. We never know how we will respond when the bad stuff hits in our lives . Kasey Carters book is inspirational and encouraging. The use of scripture provides an immediate reminder of Gods love and promises, and comfort for a hurting heart. I would definitely recommend this book.
Read with Caution... Jul 29, 2009
...if you are offended by terms such as "non-viable fetus", and the concept of terminating a pregnancy early due to the unborn baby having health problems. I believe the author meant well, but this book is not one I would share due to these issues.
