Coming in July…


I’m excited to announce that I am making headway with my first booklet in the Chronic Pain and the Christian Life series. I expect to release it sometime in July, and I’m so excited that I had to give you a sneak peak of what you can expect.

My first booklet will be called But God, Wouldn’t I Be More Useful To You If I Were Healthy?

It’s all about work and service and what Scripture says about how Christians should move forward in this area of life when beset by the limitations of chronic pain.

This topic is so personal to me. Over the years I have wrestled with choices to leave jobs, moved from full-time to part-time employment, and learned to say “no” when asked to do things that were too much for my body to handle. I have learned to rest and recreate new places of work within my life, using the strengths and limitations I have been given.

It has not been easy, and I do not have it all figured out. But, I do have a few thoughts, and I am curious what you will think about them.

Stay tuned!

  1. I love the title of your first booklet! It touches on a subject I struggle with as well. I’m sure it will resonate with other readers? Congratulations? make sure you celebrate in this milestone!

  2. I agree, it’s a great title! We live in a world that is so hurried that when we are forced to rest, receive treatment on an ongoing basis it doesn’t feel as if we are doing much at all. But, if we stop and focus on the many blessings instead of our losses, we become grateful for the time we have to spend in prayer, Bible study and in the presence of God. Very few people Will see it that way until the Lord opens their eyes.

  3. Congrats, Esther!! I also agree it is a good title. I think that’s what you were thinking of before if I’m not mistaken or was that a post you wrote? In any case, being useful is a huge part of our lives and what we have lost and what we struggle with. So that is indeed a great subject to start with.

    1. Thanks! I really appreciate your feedback on the title. It’s hard to not feel useful, and I hope to speak to that in the book. Hugs <3 Hope you are having a low pain low symptom day.
