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 audiobook, 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.

Nothing Wasted - Powerful, Life Changing Truths

‘God rightly knows what we so often question, His process is the point.’ This book gave my highlighter a workout with poignant truths like this gem! Kasey is a masterful story teller – raw, riveting, relatable, brave and smart! She unpacks her own personal journey so vividly – the good, the bad & the ugly – no hold barred; all for the benefit of those of us looking on, to helps us understand how God has shaped her life and left nothing within her journey void of purpose. What hope she brings readers as she shifts the focus from her story to remind us of God’s character and the grace, love, guidance and purpose He has for our own personal story!
So often it felt as though Kasey was speaking directly to me, and at other times, it felt as though she was reading an excerpt from the pages of my journal - her insights and love for Jesus totally blessed my heart! If you’re looking for relatable truth, encouragement, reminders of God’s character and the purpose He has for your life (mess & all) this book is a must-read, just don’t forget the Kleenex!
