Be Bold in the Broken
I am so excited to introduce my new book Be Bold in the Broken: How I Found My Courage and Purpose in God’s Unconditional Love now available for pre-order at your favorite book sellers!
“Who am I? What is my purpose? Where do I belong?
These questions linger in every season of our lives, but, as Mary Lenaburg learned the hard way, answering them becomes possible only when we direct our hearts to the God who made us and loves us best of all. Following Lenaburg’s example in Be Bold in the Broken will give you the courage and inspiration you need to accept who you are—the good, the bad, and the awkward—and become the woman God made you to be.”

“God doesn’t see things the way we do. But we can learn to see ourselves the way God sees us. That is what this book will help you do.” –From the foreword by Leah Darrow, Catholic speaker, author, and founder of LuxU
“Mary Lenaburg doesn’t shy away from the hard things, the hard moments, or the hard realizations. Through her words, I felt a loving embrace from Jesus reassuring me that I am worthy and needed, no matter the battles I’ve fought, and I know you will too.” —Kathryn Whitaker, Author of Live Big, Love Bigger
“Through equal doses of humility and truth, Lenaburg shares from the heart what it means to discover who you truly are and how walking in this truth really can change your life. I cried, nodded in agreement, and laughed out loud. This book makes me feel seen and understood, and it encouraged me to seek treasure where it can be found.” —Rachel Balducci, Catholic author, speaker, and cohost of The Gist on CatholicTV
“In her characteristic style and distinctive voice, Lenaburg invites us all to own our own stories, embrace who we are, and let God use us for his divine purpose. This book will encourage you and challenge you to find the courage to love yourself as exactly who you are and come to know how deeply God loves you too. A great read filled with humor and insight, this is a book we all need to remind us of how deep his love for us really is.” —Colleen C. Mitchell, Author of Who Does He Say You Are
“Mary Lenaburg has a rare gift of holy hospitality, and I couldn’t put this book down. With each turn of the page, I found myself feeling at home in her vast heart and boldly embracing new facets of my own brokenness and beauty. What a gift this book will be to so many!” —Carrie Schuchts Daunt, John Paul II Healing Center presenter, Author of Undone
Lenaburg’s life has been filled with many shake-you-to-your-core moments, yet she kept pushing forward. How? The quiet voice of God was always with her, even when she wasn’t ready to listen. A faith and life chock-full of courageous moments strung together with all the joy, sorrow, and hope this world has to give—that’s what you’ll experience in the pages of Be Bold in the Broken.” —Allison Gingras, Founder of Reconciled to You, Host of A Seeking Heart podcast
“The first time I saw Mary Lenaburg she was on stage telling stories. I never imagined that in Be Bold in the Broken she would take her storytelling to a whole new level! Every chapter made me feel like Lenaburg was sitting next to me with a cup of coffee, and her bathing-suit shopping story had me yelling, ‘Preach it, sister!’ She has a gift of transforming the everyday into great stories that draw her readers closer to God.” —Liv Harrison, Creator of the Genius Catholic Women’s Conference
Be Brave in the Scared
Be Brave in the Scared is an uplifting account of human frailty (and stubbornness) surrendered to faith. It is a heart-rending story of how caring for my severely disabled daughter affected my self-image, marriage, family life, and faith.
Each chapter concludes with an invitation to write and a place for readers to express their thoughts and feelings. Lenaburg’s extraordinary story affirms that God’s redeeming love never fails and that he is there to help us through all of the challenges we encounter.
