Such a journey!

This was a trip into the life of a favorite author of mine, and how her faith, love, family and friends helped her through her it. Thank you for sharing this with us as it gives a new perspective on how to face life altering issues.

A journey through cancer and beyond

I’m not an active Christian and expected to stop reading after a chapter or so. Instead, I found myself read and empathizing and getting something from every chapter of Sheila’s journey. I rejoiced with her in her joy as her husband and friends became more and more of support system. I understand and utilized her turning to prayer - although I call it healing vibrations.

In this poignant journal, we travel with Sheila as she deals with the monster...cancer. This is written as a daily journal with Scriptures and thoughts to ponder about your own life. I found it not only usable for those with cancer, but those going through any challenge. This is a wonderful way of challenging yourself to be the best you can be through prayer and meditation. Bless you, Sheila. I'm so glad you beat it. ...more

A thought-provoking, inspirational read. Sheila shares her rough journey through cancer with us; the pain and suffering, the ups and downs, with snippets of humor. The journey changes her life both physically and mentally. Her strong faith gets her through this journey, even when she has doubts.

I loved this book. I feel as though the author shared her experiences with me as if we were dear friends. I appreciate that she includes prayers and scripture in her book about her health. I admire how her husband was encouraging, and at her side through everything.
