Ada, Mich. (September 8, 2016)—Wreck My Life: Journeying from Broken to Bold (Baker Books; ISBN 9780801008146; ebook ISBN 9781493404933; $14.99) by Mo Isom has landed on the New York Times Bestsellers list, achieving the #11 spot on the September Sports and Fitness list during its first month of release. This ranking reflects sales during August 2016 and is based on sales from thousands of nationwide venues where general books are sold.
From the heights of athletic success to the depths of depression and personal defeat, All-American soccer star Mo Isom shows readers that pain, suffering, and adversity can either derail them or create an unshakable faith, enabling them to live more boldly. While Isom’s life seemed like a success, she was battling an eating disorder, the suicide of her father, and a horrific car accident. It wasn’t until God wrecked her life that she discovered the glory of renewal through Jesus Christ and that wreckage can be sacred rather than scarring. Readers take the journey from broken to bold with her and learn to surrender their lives to the King who was wrecked on their behalf.
