Description

We all have past experiences we wish we could redo, undo, or hide altogether. In Nothing Wasted, counselor and teacher Kasey Van Norman shares how God revealed his specific plan for her life through the most unlikely, embarrassing, and painful seasons of her past. Her vulnerability invites you to discover God's personal and purposeful design for your future, not in spite of your story, but through it.

What if the pain and mistakes of your past are exactly what God wants to use to redeem your future?

A difficult childhood, public infidelity, and a fight with cancer - Kasey Van Norman has walked a rocky road of regret and loss. Shockingly, God would take her back to move her forward, uprooting her undealt-with wounds, secret shame, and intimacy-sabotaging patterns of behavior. No longer running from her past, but instead, allowing herself to be defined by it, Kasey discovered a God more intentional and loving than she'd ever believed him to be. Today, she shares the truth that no part of our life story is wasted - but purposefully designed and used by God to shape who we are meant to be.

With vulnerability, sound doctrine, and humor, Kasey unfolds the brokenness in her own life, reminding us that a holy, sovereign God lovingly works, not in spite of our past, but through it. In this book, Kasey invites you to look at the most unlikely, shocking, and painful experiences of your past in order to embrace them as the necessary setup for your future. No experience or relationship has been a mistake. You are no mere byproduct of random events, and you do not need a do-over! Join Kasey, and take God up on his offer to weave together every confusing, disjointed scrap of your past in to his beautiful story of redemption.

Because with God, nothing is wasted.

There are those books, you know the ones. You think the cover is pretty, or the title is catchy... then you get home and comfy in bed, start to read, and think, "Why did I buy this?". Well, not this book. Kasey Van Norman has such authenticity in her words and in her story that it will grip you to the very core. Trust me when I say this book is one that you will not regret investing in. I honestly cannot think of another book that has captivated my heart and spoken truth to the places I did not even know needed speaking to, like this one. Kasey's story is no doubt a hard one to take in, but the realness of her courage in sharing it is a true testament to God's overwhelming love and grace. Her gentleness at times to the sensitive subjects so many of us endure as victims, to the hard truths spoken in love to the areas of our lives that we hide from others out of shame or regret, leave me feeling that I can tell the world my story and give all the glory to God. He indeed wastes NOTHING and uses every detail of our lives to glorify Him. If you have ever doubted God's goodness or questioned His love for you, I implore you, go read this book!

Kasey gives us an open, honest look into the raw parts of her life. The part that many of us would view in our own lives as unusable. She shows us that the opposite is, in fact, true. If you've ever felt that your past leaves you unable to help others or to live life to the fullest, this book is for you.

Through Nothing Wasted, Kasey reveals and unravels the lies we all believe though mainstream media. Christians are perfect. Christians don’t suffer. God does not love “you.” For years, I struggled to believe I was worthy in a church setting because of those misconceptions. In her story, Kasey weaves a beautiful connection of how our messes and strife are God leading us in and through our story to a relationship with Him.

What a page turner ! What an inspiring story of how God uses every good, bad ,and ugly in our lives for his glory. That no shame or past regret is to much to bear , and that instead of hiding or running from it we can use it to better understand God's purpose for us.

Kasey's book is full of heart wrenching moments where she has laid it all out bare. Her book and honest experiences show you how Jesus gently cups our face and lets us know that these things we have walked through, even though they can be the worst imaginable for us, are not for nothing. That, and the normal everyday junk that we think doesn't matter. Jesus cares about it all! They are used for His ultimate glory, to draw us to Him in who He is making us each day as we are being made Holy through Christ. SUCH an amazing read, don't miss out on it. Kasey has some amazing truths to share that are absolutely relate-able to every person out there!

This is a fantastic read. Kasey is open, honest, raw, and authentic. If you have ever thought that you were "too messed up" for God to use you, you need to read this book. If you have ever thought that your life was too "perfect" for you to relate to others, you need to read this book. I love how she takes all her hurts and mistakes and shows how God was working in the background to bring them all together into something wonderful. Awesome book!

This is an excellent story of hope and redemption! Kasey unfolds deep, personal parts of her life, showing how God uses every single experience to make us who we are today. Her vulnerability leads you in the ups and downs of her life, ultimately landing in the arms of Jesus and finding an abundance of grace and love. She is real, raw, humble, and honest (with a little side of sass), sharing parts of her life that most of us would be hiding. She shares in a way that is relatable, and gives hope of the freedom found in Jesus. I think you will find that by hearing what Kasey has learned in life, you too can find confidence in Jesus and know that every part of your own story is being used by a God who loves you deeply.
