junebugLakewood, OHAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Give to someone starting breast cancer journeySeptember 28, 2012junebugLakewood, OHAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I bought this book for my mom when she started her breast cancer journey. When she was finished with treatment, I asked her what was helpful for her during her journey that I could do for others who I come in contact with who are starting the breast cancer journey themselves....she said "give them this book". So, my mom and I continue to give this book out to women who have started the journey of breast cancer treatment and survivorship. I guess you can't have any higher recommendation than from a breast cancer fighter!

BonnieJean Wiebe5 Stars Out Of 5July 20, 2005BonnieJean WiebeI'm 42 and was diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2004. I received this book midway through chemo, right when I needed it. It has ministered to me and allowed me to share with others. Mary has done a wonderful job expressing this journey/adventure.On p. 45, 46 she writes I learned something about patience during this journey that seemed to last forever. When trouble comes, we can turn to God in faith. We can lay all our burdens down at His feet and trust Him to carry the entire load. But faith is only the first step. Faith paves the way for God to step in and take control of our problems. God will use the tie to develop our patience and strengthen our character (Jm 1:2-4). It's the gift of patience that keeps the path clear until the results we are waiting for are evident. It gives our faith a chance to work. When your patience is tested, it's easy to throw away your confident trust in the Lord. It's hard to stay on the path when the victory is so slow in coming. But if you submit to God's timing He will honor you. He knows the best time to change your circumstances."

Tell us a little about yourself. I attended church regularly, but it wasnt until a breast cancer diagnosis in August of 1999 that the Lord truly won my heart. During this dark bald time of chemo, baldness, and fighting for my life, my relationship with Christ became personal and my occasional Bible dabbling turned into a deep hunger for the Word of God. Jesus became more than Lord of my Sunday mornings; He became Lord of my life! I emerged from cancer with a call on my heart to share what He had done for me and what He can do for other women facing the same battle. I was blessed to be able to start a care ministry called Pray for the Cure at my local church. Each month, we gather to encourage, support, and pray for people facing a cancer diagnosis. For more information, please go to www.prayforthecure.net.
What was your motivation behind this project? A crisis like breast cancer can be the spark that ignites any woman's desire to grow spiritually and seek God. I discovered in my own journey that many resources offered hope through self- empowerment or New Age approaches. I wrote Grace for Each Hour to meet her deepest need at this critical time with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Shock, fear, panic, betrayal, grief, anxiety, loss of dignity...these are just a few of the emotions every woman experiences when she finds herself on the unexpected journey through breast cancer. Grace for Each Hour is a collection of 120 devotional readings that apply God's comforting words to the typical emotions and fears every woman experiences. The book provides hope and encouragement and helps her grow in her relationship with Him during this difficult time.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? My favorite author is Oswald Chambers. His classic devotional, My Utmost for His Highest, continues to challenge me year after year to come to terms with the precious gift of redemption we have in Christ Jesus.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: My second book, Grace for Tough Times: Keys to Hope, Comfort, and Encouragement (Bethany House, 2006), is a devotional for anyone facing serious illness,broken relationships, or devastating personal loss.
