Hope & Help for Chronic Illness by Mark E. Shaw

Focus Publishing




Periods of extreme physical pain and mental fatigue can plague any one of us. From a medical perspective, chronic illness is defined as "an illness that lasts three months or more," but practical help and eternal hope is available for those who are God's children. Find out the wrong and right responses to dealing with chronic illness. Be encouraged to reach out for help from the beautiful blessing of the Body of Christ. God made each of us dependent upon Him and His Body, the local church.


"When it comes to dealing with a chronic illness, you wonder how you will ever persevere through the never ending pain. How will you endure? Where are the guideposts on this long and difficult journey? Mark Shaw's new booklet Hope and Help for Chronic Illness lays out the roadmap, helping those who suffer to navigate all the emotional ups and downs on the hard, bloodstained path to Calvary. I wrestle with quadriplegia and chronic pain every day, and if I am blessed by this remarkable little book filled with sage wisdom, you will be, too!"
