“To be human is to be broken,” shares Ellie Holcomb about the central theme flowing throughout her album. “We all know what it is for our hearts to be split wide open like a canyon by the pain and loss and sorrow, we encounter here. I spent a lot of my life trying to pretend like I wasn’t broken, trying to ignore some of the deepest wounds in my own story and some of the deepest wounds in the world around me, but what I encountered as I began to lean into these broken places was the nearness, kindness, and empathy of God, who sent His son to break for us, so we could know that our brokenness is never the end of the story.”
