Millions of people live with chronic illnesses and pain that can make daily activity seem empty of joy, solace, and purpose. Maureen Pratt, who has lived with serious chronic illnesses and pain since childhood, is intimately aware of the physical and emotional toll these conditions can take on patients and their families, but she also has experienced tremendous grace, peace, and resilience through abiding faith. In this practical and spiritual guide, she shares how she navigates spiritually through the frustrations, fears, and complexities of daily living with chronic pain and illness. Using a combination of Bible passages, her own experiences and insights, and prayer, Pratt provides help on issues that include dealing with isolation, coping with medical expenses, strengthening a fragile relationship with God, and learning to say no. Written with unstinting honesty and humor, Peace in the Storm will encourage and inspire readers to find God’s blessings throughout their life’s journey, no matter the storm.
