Filled with insight and practical help, each chapter of Being Well When We're Ill focuses on one particular kind of struggle, such as worry, guilt, the loss of meaning, or the loss of confidence and trust that God is present and personally loving. Each chapter details one or more appropriate "finds"---spiritual resources, emotional supports, intellectual answers, or practical solutions---that enable a person with infirmities to persevere through them and to be well in spite of them.
For each issue she explores, such as loss of dreams, loneliness, physical pain, depression, ingratitude, side effects and more, Dawn includes discussions of biblical texts---not only texts that help lament losses but texts that bring wholeness. Readers will find themselves companioned in their sufferings and encouraged with new ways to surmount them.
Dottie Simonides5 Stars Out Of 5March 14, 2010Dottie SimonidesThis book is a masterpiece, and has tremendous value for all, even if we don't have serious health issues. We all have ailments from time to time. While acknowledging our limitations, Marva Dawn guides us to see how dearly God loves us, provides for us, and sustains us, and inspires us to use whatever we have for His service. I kept thinking of others with whom I want to share the book to encourage them in their struggles. A real faith-booster!
Judith Kinney5 Stars Out Of 5July 9, 2008Judith KinneyLearning to exhibit---and extend---grace when you flat-out don't feel good is more than difficult. And often the last thing you really want to do. Marva Dawn's resource is just the support you need to get moving again! She writes from theological soundness and personal experience---and angst. Not a book to read all in one sitting. Thought-provoking, intellectually stimulating, and hope inducing. Highly recommended! Get several because you'll want to share.
