"The Broken Body, Wounded Spirit: Balancing the See-Saw of Chronic Pain" series offers an integrative holistic approach to chronic pain conditions and is what is needed in medicine today. Empowering us to become part of our own health and healing process is such a powerful approach to these conditions or any others. I applaud the authors, and hope they inspire others to follow their lead. The inspirational healing words and information on nutrition and exercise and the importance of quality sleep is a treasure trove for anyone dealing with chronic pain conditions."
~Bill Douglas, author of the best-selling tai chi book, "The Complete Idiot's Guide to T'ai Chi & Qigong" and Founder of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day and World Healing Day. Bill teaches Tai Chi for people with chronic pain conditions through the University of Kansas Hospital's Turning Point program.
"This lovely book of devotions is rich with insight and practical suggestions for any one with chronic pain. It is filled with inspirational and healing words dealing with topics from nutrition, exercise, and sleep to relating successfully to your doctor."
~Susan E. Opper, MD, Medical Director of Saint Luke's Pain Management Services, Saint Luke's Hospital of Kansas City.
"I love the very idea of "Winter Devotions". The struggle of living with chronic pain is compounded for many by the winter months when it is cold, damp, and often gloomy. Bones ache, joints hurts, and the spirit sometimes become depressed. This wonderful book provides a tool to help with those issues. The quotes, photography and motivation of authors Celeste Cooper and Jeff Miller all bring much needed hope and relief."
~Myra J. Christopher, Kathleen M. Foley Chair in Pain and Palliative Care at the Center for Practical Bioethics, and Principal Investigator of the Pain Action Alliance to Implement a National Strategy.
"Chronic pain is a tyrant that seeks to control every aspect of a person's life--body, mind, and spirit. Broken Body, Wounded Spirit offers pain sufferers' guidance in fending off the tyrant and regaining control over their lives. Celeste and Jeff do a beautiful job of blending practical suggestions, inspirational quotes, and delightful seasonal images into daily nuggets of wisdom that uplift and fortify the body, mind, and spirit."
~Karen Lee Richards, Fibromyalgia Editor, ProHealth, and Chronic Pain Health Guide, HealthCentral.
"Broken Body, Wounded Spirit is a warm and thoughtful prescription to honor oneself in the face of challenge, not just chronic pain. It is perfectly sprinkled with invaluable wisdom to address every aspect of wellbeing. This is a laugh out loud toolkit with humorous sayings, photos and lessons for lifestyle change bundled into a special 90-day guide to celebrate health."
~Lisa Marianni, RN, MBA, Consultant and previous Senior Director, Sharecare Provider Solutions in Atlanta, GA.
"Dealing with chronic pain can make us feel robbed of many choices. We can succumb to 'woe is me' or we can work on self-management skills. This book offers tips and tools which can be utilized to enable us to 'participate in life' rather than 'watch it go by' from the sidelines. What will you choose?"
~Orvie Prewitt, Program Coordinator - Kansas City Regional Arthritis Center, and a person living with chronic pain.
"As welcome as a spring breeze, this inspiring book series gently encourages fresh perspectives for living well with chronic pain or illness. Whether pondering one day at a time or dancing between the pages, the insightful prose leads the reader to feelings of peaceful dignity. A unique celebration of living harmoniously with the seasons of the year while rejuvenating ourselves physically and spiritually. Thanks Celeste for sharing your sparkling love for life!"
~Jan Favero Chambers, President and founder of the National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association. "Your partner in tackling fibromyalgia and chronic pain."
"Anyone with chronic pain can and will be helped by reading and using this book as a tool. It is the perfect blend of inspiration and helpful information to guide people on their pain journey, in fact, as a person with pain; I have learned some important techniques that have helped me."
~Paul Gileno, Founder/President, US Pain Foundation Inc.
