Author's Forum with Simonetta Carr: March 1, 2019

Broken Pieces and the God Who Mends Them - Simonetta Carr.JPG

Join us on Friday, March 1 at 7:30 p.m. for our guest author, Simonetta Carr.  Simonetta will be discussing her book, Broken Pieces and the God Who Mends Them: Schizophrenia through a Mother's Eyes. This is a free lecture and open to all who wish to attend.

“When a son, sister, or grandchild begins to behave in unexpected and disturbing ways, family members hope it is simply a phase. For some, it is instead a lifetime illness—schizophrenia. 

The diagnosis of schizophrenia can bring shock, fear, and worry to everyone involved. But in the midst of the numerous challenges, hope doesn’t have to die. 

Simonetta chronicles her experience of caring for a son with schizophrenia, along with all the struggles, questions, and fervent prayer that went with it. But this isn’t one person’s story. She has provided information and wisdom from psychiatrists, pastors, parents, and people who successfully live with schizophrenia, uncovering the gospel in each situation and sharing hard-won insights on how to care and advocate for those we love.”

Simonetta Carr was born in Italy and has lived and worked in different cultures. She worked first as an elementary school teacher and then as a home-schooling mother for many years. The author of a number of books, including the award-winning series Christian Biographies for Young Readers, she writes a regular column, "Cloud of Witnesses," for the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals, has contributed to newspapers and magazines around the world, and has translated the works of several authors from English into Italian and vice versa. She lives in San Diego with her family, where she is a member and Sunday school teacher at Christ United Reformed Church.
