Beyond sending a "get-well card," many people know little about supporting someone through a serious illness -- let alone passing through one themselves. Life on Hold answers the need of many people who face -- or may soon be faced with -- a health crisis of longer duration. Written by a father and daughter who lost their wife and mother to an extended battle with cancer, this sensitive personal journal is dotted with illustrations from real-life survivors. Each chapter offers tools for dealing with the challenges of physical illness. A practical, spiritual handbook, it shows sufferers, ministers, lay workers, family, and friends how to trust God during a season of recovery or release. Scripture and counsel on getting through the first several weeks are among this book's most rare and precious gifts.
