Cancer, Grief, PTSD and The Embrace of Love

Not one of us is immune to suffering. So many of us have experienced loss, rejection, trauma and/or deep hurt. But often we decide to keep working, to keep going and to keep numbing that which we are terribly scared will break us into tiny little pieces. Love Embraced records the author’s own journey through such suffering, in:

– caring for her mother dying of cancer
– grieving her mother’s death
– her diagnosis of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and
– working through repressed childhood memories.

But, it also reveals how in starting to face that which she was too frightened to face, she began to embrace and be embraced by a mighty God into:

– freedom
– hope,
– comfort,
– peace,
– strength and
– deep joy.
