Each chapter has journaling questions to help the reader process what they’ve learned. This is an encouraging, helpful, and practical guide for anyone who is mourning losses due to chronic illness or chronic pain. I recommend it to all my chronic pain and illness friends!
I was given a free copy of this book, but that has not impacted my review. I am so grateful for this book. It is one I will keep on my shelf to read again when another cycle of grief comes.
That being said, this really is my kind of book. Christian counseling, spiritually uplifting, and introspective.
As a Christian, I turn to the Lord for help, I cling to His promises, and rely on His power. It is He alone who sustains me! So, it stands to reason, I would want counsel that supports the Word of God.
Chronic pain and illness are very hard to live with 24/7 year after year. Unfathomable, even, to a non-sufferer. Grief is so heavy at times. I know we all need to vent to keep it from festering. We may have different outlets, but we all need an outlet or therapy with which to cope. The book is scripturally based and the author suggests various ways of dealing with grief over one's losses/ despair.
Though this review is written for "When Chronic Pain & Illness Take Everything Away: How to Mourn Our Losses", I would also recommend the author's previous book "But God, Wouldn't I Be More Useful to You If I Were Healthy?"
Esther Smith writes in a down-to-earth approach that allows the reader to grieve the life that once was and the life that could have been. Included in the book are her own personal struggles with chronic pain as well as input from others that are along a similar journey that is italicized throughout, all written with sincerity that does not refrain from allowing the reader to sense the palpable pain. Aside from the much admired Joni Eareckson Tada, I have found a lack of books that are both Biblically based and emotionally safe which are specifically targeted to the chronically ill. This book was so refreshingly real, that I could have read two hundred more pages of similar material and still would have wanted more. On that note, I hope to see Esther Smith use her useful skills in counseling combined with her superb writing to publish an in-print book that can be found in bookstores nationwide. If you’re looking for a healing read or if you are seeking to find material to help understand the world of a loved one I chronic pain, this is a perfect place to start.
