    Library Journal

    Where some women diagnosed with breast cancer might rail against a higher power, ministry consultant and author Thompson wants to help women go beyond mere survivorship to "seek and find God's purpose" in their situation. This is a heavily faith-based volume, with daily Scripture and letters to and from God. Most chapters include a "Let's Pray" moment. With blank spaces to personalize the process, this is more of a gift item for women with a strong relationship with God than a library purchase. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    Publisher's Weekly

    Thompson became a breast cancer statistic after a routine mammogram revealed a suspicious spot; doctors confirmed it was cancer. This author, founder of Woman to Woman Mentoring Ministry at Rick Warren's Saddleback Church, experienced the emotional highs and lows, pain and fatigue, and spiritual crisis and victory that come with breast cancer. She shares her story, plus much more, in a book she envisions as "a safe place to document an epic time in your life." Much of her experience is recorded in letters to God, but she also includes the words of others. "Mentoring Moment" sections offer help and advice about the gritty aspects of breast cancer. Most touching is paraphrased Scripture offered as "God's Love Letter to You." Thompson provides both space and encouragement to journal, and her appendices provide valuable resources such as Web sites and recommended reading, as well as space for recording questions, doctor's appointments, medications, contact information and many other details often lost in the trauma and emotion. Thompson's book is a must for any Christian woman facing breast cancer. It's honest, beautiful and cathartic. (Sept. 26) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    Janet Thompson, author of Dear God, They Say It’s Cancer, has stocked her newest release chock full of everything a woman needs to journey through breast cancer. Having been down this road herself, she comes alongside others with encouragement, support, and a new angle of perspective.
    At whatever point a woman finds herself, Janet has compiled the things she longed for on her own journey through breast cancer--appropriate Bible passages, prayers, and quotes from others battling this intruder. There’s also space for journaling, note taking, and tracking appointments. Presently heading a speaking and writing ministry titled About His Work ( AWH Publishing), Janet writes to her breast cancer sisters: “Things never seem as scary when you have a friend…I want to walk besides you.”
    While I hope that this is a book you will never need, it is one you will not want to be without if you do face breast cancer. The author doesn’t mince words about Jesus Christ being the strength and salvation of our lives, no matter what we face. However, if I had to start on a journey with breast cancer, I think I’d appreciate a travel size version of this thick volume. – Cheryl A Cecil, Christian Book Previews.com
