Have you ever experienced that moment of intense pain in your eyes and head when you've opened the curtains on a bright and sunny day? Anybody who has experienced a migraine or even a hangover would likely understand what I'm talking about too. Although photophobia or light sensitivity might seem quite common among the general population, it can be quite debilitating when combined with a chronic illness like ME.
Most people struggle with glare and direct sunlight in their eyes, but what you might not realise is that some people with chronic illness actually cannot tolerate any light at all and might have to spend hours, days, weeks or even months in the dark - and it's not just pain in the eyes that they're avoiding!
Geared towards teens suffering with chronic illness, this book aims to answer some of those tough questions believers often find themselves asking when things seem to be falling apart. This is Sarah Willoughby's debut work, and I think she has done a great job of highlighting God's heart and love for us even in the midst of suffering.
Welcome to another Warrior of the Week guest interview. In this Faith Through Illness series we will meet various chronic illness warriors who'll share their faith journey with us. How does chronic illness affect their faith and how does their faith affect their condition?
This week I have the honour of sharing Heather Hancock's story. Heather is a Christian Inner Healing Coach helping women to find freedom from their emotional scars and spiritual wounds. She has a gorgeous blog where she writes about healing and overcoming through faith. I'm sure you will be as encouraged by her story as I am.
I'm so excited to share this heartwarming story with you today! Nobody's Girl by Tania Crosse is a fantastic book full of family drama, tragedy, friendship and love. You will follow wonderfully relatable characters through the most trying times of their lives - prepare to be transported on a rollercoater of emotional events. Loved this book!
In my first book review I'm sharing my thoughts on this lovely novella by Jessica Greyson. Annabeth's War was her debut work and it happens to be the first book I read from beginning to end on my new Kindle! It's an exciting tale of a young girl's quest to save her loved ones and her country from an evil Lord that has his eyes on the throne while the King is away at war and the fascinating characters she meets along the way.
