It’s HERE! My book for women recovering from injury, surgery, or illness. And I couldn’t have done it without the support and assistance of my beloved friend, editor, and publisher- Bonnie Lyn Smith at Ground Truth Press. My beautiful cover design was created by Michelle Fairbanks at Fresh Design.
“Help and Hope While You’re Healing: A woman’s guide toward wellness while recovering from injury, surgery or illness.” (Click HERE to purchase the book!)
I have a strong passion for helping people, and I learned early in my writing career, that I wanted to use my words to encourage and inspire others in a very personal way. This has always been my mission and what I believe to be my purpose both in my writing and in my daily life, and I couldn’t think of a more meaningful and fulfilling pursuit.
Over the past six years, I have written countless articles with that focus, and although each and every piece was inspired by this belief, I slowly discovered a great need for helping women who have experienced an injury, surgery, or illness in their lives. I know all too well, the process of healing and recovering from any painful limitation can be incredibly difficult. What I learned through readers of my blog and researching books on this topic, is that there are very few resources out there that offer the help and encouragement I know these women desperately need.
I spent the past few years wondering if there was a purposeful writing pursuit I could explore, and through lots of prayer and pondering- God began revealing to me what I can do with all the experience I have and all the compassion I feel for others. After battling through a combined total of 9 surgeries in the last decade and my continued struggles with chronic illness, I consider myself fairly qualified to speak to the issues that arise from such circumstances and with my passion to walk alongside people as they navigate adversity in their lives, this seemed to me to be the perfect combination of criteria for a book.
I reflect on the past two years, mulling this over and over in my head and scratching at the surface and then diving in with ideas about how I can best serve the women who would be reading it- I kept my perspective on what I would want to read, when I was in that place. This book was solely written for those wounded warriors who face a undeniably challenging season of recovery and healing-
And I truly want to offer them the help and hope they deserve.
This guide is NOT a literary masterpiece. It is quite the contrary, for I know how difficult it can be to focus when you are are suffering. It is a simple, yet intimate book that will speak personally to the reader and lead them through the common tests and trials I believe every woman faces when being down for the count. It includes the following topics:
*Identifying specific plans and preparations for the areas of responsibility that need to be addressed while in recovery.
*How to manage the grueling and often relentless pain
*The significance of reaching out for help and how to do it
*Discovering your passion and purpose during this season of stillness
*Honoring your unique healing process
*Keeping a healthy perspective in this stuck place
*How to cope with limitations and embrace your gifts
*The importance of prayer and spirituality in providing peace and restoration
*Discovering and embracing the hope for healing and a life anew
I truly believe that “Help and Hope While You’re Healing” can offer the help and hope it claims to those women who need an encouraging friend to walk alongside them while they’re down.
And it gives me great joy to think of this book as being the perfect gift to buy for a friend or loved one who must face a season of recovery and healing.
Every single woman will experience an injury, a surgery, or an illness-and perhaps all three at some point in their lives!
I’m honored to think I can walk alongside them all, with the wisdom and encouragement I can offer in my book.
