Brenda breaks down her journey into four parts:
- Part 1: My Life Before The Diagnosis
- Part 2: My Experience With Thyroid Cancer
- Part 3: There Is Life After A Cancer Diagnosis
- Part 4: Helpful Resource Information For Thyroid Cancer Patients, Families, and Caregivers
In each of the four parts of her journey, Brenda provides a sobering but uplifting story of her life before and after the cancer diagnosis, and how through her faith and trust in God, she learned to rejoice through the tears and struggles, became stronger than ever, and learned that there can still be a rewarding life to live after a cancer diagnosis, that it doesn't always have to mean the end.
With a mixture of strength, courage, faith, and grace, Brenda provides an encouraging message that you don't have to walk alone on your journey. Take comfort in the knowledge that God walks with you, and will carry you in his loving arms when you most need it. Most of all, Brenda provides nuggets of wisdom from her personal experience, and encourages people to keep a healthy and positive attitude while going through their own journey with a sheer determination to keep fighting no matter what challenges they may face with a renewed hope towards recovery.
Throughout Rejoicing Through The Tears, Brenda provides the reader with a wonderful collage of pictures of her family, and inspirational Scripture passages at the end of each chapter to inspire and ignite your faith. I would be remiss if I didn't mention the wonderful description and pictures of her family vacation to Mackinac Island, Michigan. She easily transports the reader to this picturesque island and the stately Grand Hotel, that was featured in the delightful 1979 movie Somewhere In Time with Christopher Reeves and Jane Seymour.
The most important message that I took away from reading Brenda's inspirational and uplifting journey is the realization of how precious life truly is, how quickly it can pass by, never take another day for granted, and learn to rejoice and embrace your life every day, no matter what challenges may come your way!
Disclaimer: I received a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
Though at first glance this cover may look a bit whimsical (take a closer look) the content is anything but. I highly recommend this book to everyone. Everyone knows someone that has been affected by the diagnosis of cancer; if not you then a family member, friend or friend of a friend. Please read this book it can only help.
