Heal your shattered heart.
Healing feels impossible when our hearts are so shattered that words fail us. When the pain is so great, we cannot pray, we long for gentle guidance and profound wisdom to guide our journey back to trust.
In Out of Words, Carmen Horne brings the experience and hope we need to regain strength — and find our words. Sharing guidance and clarity from her own hard-earned healing and rooted in Scripture, Carmen offers 31 days of insight, specifically crafted prayers, and journal space for you to:
- Discover, or rediscover, the beauty and power of praying God’s Word
- Receive comfort as your tender heart heals
- Unpack your own devastation to gradually reveal the strength and words you need to recover
As you process each day with questions from your Hope Coach and journal your thoughts with a Pray and Ponder opportunity, you will rediscover the words to ask God to tenderly care for and heal your broken heart.
I'm grateful to Carmen Horne for providing this book to guide us toward healing no matter the cause of our hurts. It is one I will refer to often and share with others in their time of need.

Expect the Spirit to waft into your world through her words. Carmen points us straight to the Word of God, His Son, Jesus, in such a touching way. I’m convinced God breathed His words through her for you and me to have the Word revived in us, renewing a bright hope for our future.

As a mom grieving the loss of my son, I read this and wondered how Carmen knew my heart so well. You will read each tender prayer in amazement. You will want to find Carmen and thank her for guiding you past hurt into the arms of your good Father, where healing is found.

As you read Out of Words, know this: every devotion you read, every prayer you pray, and every journal prompt you can’t write because of your emptiness, will bring you closer to Jesus. He will fill you. Your words will return!
