"There are times when chronic illness threatens to steal something new from every area of life. It is then that Rest Ministries has proven to be my lifeline, their daily devotionals I receive via e-mail providing manna for the moment. Mosaic Moments has stocked that manna in a single comforting compilation. A virtual cupboard brimming with heart-to-heart stories grounded in Biblical truth, it is written by real people in the trenches of chronic illness-people who deal with the very issues I face each day as I live with chronic pain caused by neurofibromatosis. I finished each serving not simply fulfilled, but encouraged to go on. Mosaic Moments is truly heaven's Chicken Soup for the Chronically Ill Soul." ----Roberta Messner, Ph.D., R.N., author of numerous medical and inspirational articles on living with chronic pain; co-contributor to Guideposts and Daily Guideposts
"The best, most poignant resource I have read... fills a big need for those who live with pain and limitations." ----Aubrey Beauchamp R.N., USA Hospital Christian Fellowship
I am so thankful to be able to offer Mosaic Moments as a resource to those who struggle with chronic pain and illness. Rarely are there words to convey my heartfelt concerns for suffering. With Mosaic Moments I am able to share a spiritual cup of cold water. It offers words of loving and caring I believe Jesus Himself would share." --Julie Russell, R.N., Parish Nurse, Stephen Minister
" These devotions are not empty morsels promising nutrition, but real meat from the Life Giver Himself for those so desperately needing spiritual sustenance. May God bless your work." ----Darlene K. Hanson, Librarian for Polio Experience Network and a Horizon Hospice volunteer

Thank you so very much for writing "Mosaic Moments." I've had the book for quite awhile now and it has meant so much to me. I was discharged from the hospital last Friday after spending 12 days there with acute renal failure, congestive heart failure, severe bradycardia,severe hypotension, severe anemia requiring 2 units of packed cells, and other issues. It is only by the grace of God through the prayers of friends that I am alive today.
I keep a "hospital bag" packed since I never know when we'll have to rush over there. Before we left, I made sure that I packed "Mosaic Moments" in my bag and I can never verbalize what it did for me,Lisa! Your loving words and encouraging scriptures got me through some terrifying times. I was also able to share it with many nurses and it touched their lives,too. Thank you for allowing God to work through you and your gift of writing. I can't imagine not receiving that comfort and peace from your book and my Bible! I wish there was some way that hospital chaplains could be made aware of your Rest Ministries website and the access to your many books. Most hospitals have free wi-fi now and many people bring thier laptops with them. It sure would be a wonderful way to lead people to Jesus Christ while giving patients something positive and encouraging to occupy their time. Just an idea.
