Publisher's Description

Nothing can sap a person's strength and hope quite like a cancer diagnosis--unless it is the energy-stealing chemotherapy and surgeries faced in the fight against cancer. But one can find hope and strength in the pages of Scripture and in the experience of someone who has been there.

Strength Renewed is an encouraging devotional for those living in the valley of cancer. Meditations combine Scripture and stories from the author's own experience and can be read in sequential order to move the reader through a typical cancer journey from diagnosis through treatment. Each devotion also stands on its own, so readers can go directly to the entry that speaks to their need. Each devotional includes a short prayer and a Scripture verse for encouragement.

Author Bio

Shirley Corder is a registered nurse and a breast cancer survivor who has a passion for helping others as they go through treatment. She is a contributing author to several books, including four Guideposts anthologies, and has published many devotions. She lives in South Africa.

    Strength for ANY situation!

    Strength Renewed is a book not only for those facing cancer. I'm not in the cancer valley, and I don't know of anyone going through the cancer valley, and yet I've enjoyed Strength Renewed immensely. Shirley's talent and humor shine through her writing. The devotions are applicable for any tough situations one may face and the reader merely has to mentally replace the word cancer for their own particular situation.

    No matter what you're going through, Strength Renewed will bless and encourage all who will listen to God speak through the pages of this book.

    A very uplifting book

    This is a very uplifting book that will point you to scripture to find the strength you need each day. I thought the author wrote a very personal story in a very open and uplifting manner. I gave this book 5/5 stars. The chapters are short and all include scripture with some kind of lesson the author has learned while dealing with cancer. I liked the devotional format of the book. I especially enjoyed reading about how the struggles the author encountered were all made a little easier by relying on the Lord for strength. I would recommend this book for anyone dealing with cancer and even family members that are being touched by the cancer of their loved one.

    I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

    I am not a breast cancer survivor, but I've staggered through other life storms, hanging on by the fingernails, not sure whether I'd survive one more tempest. It is to the storm-tossed that author Shirley Corder's Strength Renewed speaks compellingly, asking familiar heart cries. Are you still there, God? Who did this? Why me? What now? But also offering a lifeline of faith, hope, comfort birthed from the author's own odyssey through the dark valleys and deep pits of breast cancer. Above all the precious reminder that however raging the storm, sanctuary can be found in the cradling, comforting, all-powerful hand of a loving heavenly Father.

    This book is also a great resource for family and friends of those battling cancer--a lot of practical information and tips along with the inspirational. Recommended reading and sweet comfort, whatever your life's weather.

    Great resource for those battling with cancer

    "Strength Renewed" consists of 90 devotions which follow Shirley Corder's cancer journey chronologically, but they can be read in any order as each one stands alone. Shirley's upbeat personality, laced with her lovely sense of humour, shines through this beautifully written book. She comes alongside her readers as she chats with honesty and transparency about the roller coaster ride of having cancer, her treatment, recovery and personal relationships. Her faith in God is evident throughout the book.

    The meditations can be read on several different levels. Whether you want encouragment from the Bible, down-to-earth tips, words of hope, a short prayer or a connection with someone who really knows what the cancer valley is like because they've been there, you'll find it in this book. Shirley has included three questions in each devotion for those who wish to explore the cancer journey in more depth.

    Shirley's prayer in the introduction is that "this book will strengthen your faith." My brush with cancer was many years ago, but I found much in "Strength Renewed" to strengthen my faith today.

    I strongly recommend "Strength Renewed". It's an outstanding resource for anyone with cancer and for their companions on the journey through the cancer valley.

    Encouraging for those on this journey

    I can think of so many people who would be encouraged by this book. I have never had breast cancer but have had many friends walk through this diagnosis. As I hear them pour out their hearts, I can't even begin to imagine the many confusing and discouraging thoughts that would pour into my head.

    As I was reading this book, which is full of short meditations, I felt like I was reading a woman's private journal, full of ups and downs. Each meditation is accompanied with Bible scriptures that encourage and remind of God's promises. Concluding each meditation is a prayer. I also thought it was very helpful to read how to help someone who is walking through this journey. It was good to know some things of what not to say and how to actually be an encouragement.

    I really liked how she shared some of her journey, and things that the Lord had taught her along the way in the form of a devotional. I think, though, the most insightful things for me to read were the application questions that were tucked within the meditation. Many of the questions were ones that I had never realized had to be dealt with on such a frequent basis. Just reading them and trying to envision what life would be like with a whole new schedule was exhausting. I can't even begin to imagine how draining it would be to actually carry out and deal with all of the appointments, medications, emotions, schedules, family, etc.

    No one, including me, wants to go through cancer. However, I pray that if I do that I will glorify Christ in my diagnosis. I think that's what made me like this book so much and want to give it away. It wasn't like many that are focused on the patient. This is focused on the patient, but it reminds them that there's a bigger goal in mind while journeying through breast cancer. There's someone more powerful to depend on who will renew our strength when we feel like we can't go on and that it'd be easier to give up.

    If you know someone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer or someone who has been on this journey for awhile, give them this book. I'm sure that they could relate to Shirley Corder and her own personal journey.
