About the Book

Author Elisabeth K. Corcoran thought this past year had been completely self-absorbed, so she focused on fixing something unfixable—so pathetic and sad—that it could have just been thrown out. But as it turns out, she was still thinking deeply, still trying to sort through the other parts of her life, still trying to encourage herself and her children and her friends, still trying to change the world in tiny ways, and still, most wonderfully, looking and reaching for Jesus in all of it.

The Corner of Broken and Love is about the rest of her life in the middle of a really hard season. You see, she has been so broken the past several years—more than the average girl, she thought. But here’s what she believes deep down into her bones: she is absolutely convinced that her best life stories come from the point where her brokenness is covered over by God’s love.

So enjoy a few of these stories and take courage that, no matter your current life circumstances, you and God can still create beautiful stories of your own, at the corner of broken and love.

About the Author

Elisabeth K. Corcoran is the author of One Girl, Third World (Kindle, 2011), He Is Just That into You: Stories of a Faithful God who Pursues, Engages, and Has No Fear of Commitment (WinePress, 2009), In Search of Calm: Renewal for a Mother’s Heart (Xulon, 2005), and Calm in My Chaos: Encouragement for a Mom’s Weary Soul (Kregel Publications, 2001).

This book came out of a season of relational difficulty, but it’s not about that. It is a compilation of essays that Corcoran lived out as she was attempting to continue to live a good life in spite of the pain she was walking through in her marriage.

She lives in Illinois with her two children, Sara and Jack. She is a former Women’s Ministry director, as well as an author and speaker, desiring to encourage women to look for Jesus in every part of their lives.
