There are times you plan to do something and before you know it you are gone well past the date. Like this post – it was meant to be up two months ago. I had it all scheduled. But it didn’t happen. This year is all about starting over, remember? Help and Hope While You’re Healing: A woman’s guide toward wellness while recovering from injury, surgery, or illness is a book I’m so happy to share with you, because it is written by my blogging friend, Christine Carter.

Help and Hope While You’re Healing: A woman’s guide toward wellness while recovering from injury, surgery, or illness
At some point in her life, almost every woman will experience an injury, surgery, or illness, catapulting her into a season of stillness and often painful recovery. This is a simple, yet intimate book that will speak personally to the reader and lead them through the common tests and trials every woman will face when being down for the count.
It includes the following topics:
*Identifying specific plans and preparations for the areas of responsibility that need to be addressed while in recovery.
*How to manage the grueling and often relentless pain
*The significance of reaching out for help and how to do it
*Discovering your passion and purpose during this season of stillness
*Honoring your unique healing process
*Keeping a healthy perspective in this stuck place
*How to cope with limitations and embrace your gifts
*The importance of prayer and spirituality in providing peace and restoration
*Discovering and embracing the hope for healing and a life anew
Christine’s encouraging words and directives guide us in managing the physical pain and emotional struggles of recovery. She inspires with thoughtful and motivating insights from her own experiences, explaining the value of letting go and receiving help–two challenging concepts every woman faces. In coaching us how to honor our healing and pace ourselves with patience and self-love, she gently reminds us that self-worth is not measured by productivity.
With Christine’s help, we can discover a treasure trove packed with new passion and purpose in the downtime as she points us toward deep meaning and significance–if we are willing to surrender what we must and grab hold of what we can. If you face an upcoming surgery, suffer from chronic illness, or are down for the count with a sudden injury, let Christine walk along you. Use this working guide to lead you through transforming exercises offering a new perspective on your recovery–one filled with gratitude, a bit of fun, and hope through the healing!
Christine was kind enough to send me a copy of the book and I loved it. Her humour and strong spirit come shining through. This will make a great gift to a friend or family member struggling with recovery or a chronic illness.Great book - Help and Hope While You're Healing by Christine Carter @themomcafeClick To Tweet
