9781514392065: Hope Lives: Choosing God in the Face of Illness

Diagnosed with a disabling autoimmune disorder, Kendra Lacy is forced to give up her career as a teacher and her studies at seminary. Suddenly left without direction in her life, without purpose, Lacy struggles to find a reason to get up every morning, to fight through the pain, vertigo and fatigue that have become a persistent presence in her life.

At the suggestion of a friend, Lacy decides to make a daily trip to her home church, Hope Episcopal, walk the grounds as best she can and take pictures, eventually posting them and her thoughts online. Making a deliberate choice to spend time with God each day, Lacy finds herself growing stronger mentally and spiritually.

But as the months progress, Lacy finds her physical symptoms once again flaring to unbearable levels. How will her new-found relationship with God strengthen her and prepare her for what’s to come? Will she lose God if she’s kept from visiting Hope each day? Or has this daily journey taught her something else?

Follow Lacy on her journey, her ups and downs, her cracks in faith and the spiritual repair work that makes her stronger than before.
