“In Sickness and In Health” lets you walk in the shoes of a young woman who was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, cancer of the plasma cells. During her treatment process, she kept a journalized account of her daily and weekly activities. This book shows how her faith was tested time and time again; not only in dealing with the cancer, but with many other life-changing situations that seemingly occurred all at the same time. You will see, as she had to learn, that you must trust God in sickness and in health.
An inspirational faith-based journal that will inspire.
‘Multiple myeloma is a cancer of certain cells of the bone marrow called plasma cells. Multiple myeloma is a form of bone marrow cancer. Plasma cells normally produce our antibodies. Multiple myeloma features abnormal proliferation of plasma cells in the bone marrow, destructive bone lesions, and the production of abnormal proteins, specifically antibodies. Multiple myeloma is also referred to as myeloma.’
In Sickness and in Health by Demetria Alexander Grissetta is a journalized account of coping with multiple myeloma. Sharing the personal benefits experienced from keeping a journal or diary is a wonderful way to see how someone else has used the power of journaling. Reading about someone’s journaling experience reveals what journaling has meant to them. What it has provided. What they have learned about themselves or the world that surrounds them. In this wonderful book the author shares her journey not only in dealing with the cancer, but with many other life-changing situations.
In Sickness and in Health has a transparent and practical style. The author shares personal life illustrations that will, no doubt, transform other reader’s lives. The faith-building dimension of her journey is a dynamic ingredient of this book. I have had personal experience with this type of cancer in my own family, so I thank the author for sharing hers.
Very highly recommended and a well-deserved five stars from me.
