Lessons from Bettinna Carlos’ debut book, ‘Heartbreaks & Breakthroughs’

Heartbreaks are something we all go through at one point; it may be from a loss, a failure or being a solo parent. But breakthroughs are also things we experience.

In “Heartbreaks & Breakthroughs,” media personality, entrepreneur and single mother Bettinna Carlos recalls how she made sense of God’s purposes for pain, and how He has helped turn her heartbreaks into breakthroughs.

Published by OMF Literature, “Heartbreaks & Breakthroughs” shared her journey—from sickness to full recovery, not just in the physical but emotional and spiritual aspects as well.

Authentic, candid and at times downright hilarious, each chapter shares a “Heartbreak” episode in Carlos’ life that God used to show Himself and His power, as well as the “Breakthrough” where she learned important lessons from the heartbreaks she went through.

Carlos shared lessons such as: God has a purpose in our waiting. Chapter 1 opens with a story of how Carlos’ health deteriorated as she juggled responsibilities. As she waited for her medical results, she comes to several realizations: “God used this time to show more of Himself to me—that He’s our Provider, Guarantee, Father, and Comfort—and also for me to discover more things about myself.”

She closes the book with “Truths to Hold On To.” The chapter is filled with bible verses and inspiration for different situations that readers, not just single parents, can keep reading through.—CONTRIBUTED
