Finding contentment in chronic illness

Finding contentment in chronic illness

“The other day I was speaking about my new book on a radio show. As part of the session, listeners were invited to call in and ask questions or comment on what they’d heard. I found great resonance in what people were sharing about their own suffering. And then someone called in with the suggestion that I should ‘look into healing ministries’. My heart skipped a beat, because here I was, on the spot, being challenged about my failure to…

A few radio interviews…

It’s been a completely new, and somewhat daunting experience for me this last few weeks, as I’ve recorded a couple of radio interviews and a Podcast. I’m so thankful that all the presenters were so friendly and easy to talk to, but it was scary nonetheless.

Catching Contentment – Book Trailer

It’s just over five weeks now until publication, and so much is happening – and so much remains to be done! I’d appreciate prayers over the next few weeks, particularly as I’ve just come out of a fairly nasty infection which laid me flat for 3 weeks or so, so I feel somewhat ill-equipped for everything that needs to be done. Here’s the book trailer video – hope you like it 🙂
