Peace in the Storm

Meditations on Chronic Pain and Illness
  • By Maureen Pratt
$16.29
($18.00)
Product Description
Millions of Americans experience pain every day of their lives, their conditions unalleviated by the myriad medications and medical treatments available today. Maureen Pratt, who has had lupus for more than a decade, is intimately aware of the toll chronic pain takes on patients and their families. Drawing on her personal experiences, she teaches readers to focus on the spiritual path to living well despite the burdens of illness.

PEACE IN THE STORM explores the challenges, physical and emotional, that accompany chronic pain and provides specific, practical, and uplifting ideas for surmounting them. Using a combination of scriptural readings, anecdotes, and prayer, Pratt provides helpful advice and insights on issues ranging from coping with persistent pain to dealing with loneliness and isolation; from the frustration of feeling unproductive to the very real financial strain serious illness often places on a family; and from the simple pleasure of treating oneself to new clothes or makeup to the profound transformation that meditation and prayer can bring.

Written with unstinting honesty and lightly graced with humor, PEACE IN THE STORM is an insider's understanding of chronic illness that will help readers identify their own spiritual and physical needs. It is a vital companion to books concerned only with medical care and treatment.
