Reviews - What do customers think about When You Are Diagnosed With a Life-Threatening Illness (Difficult Times Series)?
A Major Inspiration and Therapeutic Tool Oct 23, 2002
I am the clinical director of a large group of counseling centers in Houston. We are always looking for resources for our clients in assisting them in their struggles with the greatest of living maladies -- support groups, networks, bibliotherapy.
We have found in this work by Ms. Jovaag Ansorge a most powerful and personal resource for those of our clients who have been dealt the blow of a life-threatening illness. These clients have reported to us that Ms. Ansorge's prose here has been most affirming, edifying, and empowering. I praise Ms. Ansorge for giving so generously and eloquently from her most personal peril, turning her rather upsetting experience into a faith guidebook for those faced with the news of a life-threatening illness.
I recommend this book without reservation to all those affected by a life-threatening illness, from the individual diagnosed to the family member to the helping professional (doctor, nurse, minister, and/or psychotherapist).
Kudos to Ms. Jovaag Ansorge for her insight, courage, and faith.
