“Pratt has done a masterful job of turning her own personal painful experience into a work that brings hope, comfort, and inspiration.” —Rabbi Levi Meier, PhD, chaplain and clinical psychologist
Millions of people experience pain every day with their conditions unalleviated by the treatments available to them.
PEACE IN THE STORM explores the challenges of living with these conditions and provides practical and uplifting ideas for how to deal with them.
How do you handle the loneliness and isolation? What if you’re unable to work? What about dealing with the financial burden? Why did this happen to you? How do you define faith?
Maureen Pratt offers advice for all of these scenarios with honesty and humor. From childhood, she has suffered serious illnesses and chronic pain. Drawing from these experiences, as well as her adult diagnosis of lupus, she teaches people how to live well and on a spiritual path despite these special burdens.
“Find a way that you can reach out and bring light to other people, no matter how tired, isolated, or pained you are. This is our ministry-in-illness, our portion-in-pain. And this is our very special way to take what we’ve learned and believe and help others to hope and heal.”–Maureen Pratt
If you or someone you love suffers from chronic pain and illness or is simply having a difficult time, listening to this audiobook may provide some guidance and comfort to get through it.
