Welcome!

I created this website as a place where those struggling with medical adversity could come and sit under the palm trees. Imagine how the gentle breeze feels across your skin or the sound of the ocean coming in and going out; as if each wave were taking away the problems and bringing in the cleansing waters of God.  In times of trouble, I love to sit with God on the beach.  I believe it is one of His many gifts to us where nature nurtures our body and soul.

Is there a medical storm brewing within you or someone you love? Have you experienced illness? Have you been a caregiver? Are the medical issues piling up until you feel alone to slay the medical giant? Are you ready to scream – “Stop the world I want to get off?”

The mission of this website is to assist you in overcoming medical adversity through inspirational writings, resources, and a sprinkling of humor.

Whether you have come searching for information and insight for yourself or for a loved one; it is my prayer that you will draw hope, strength and encouragement from the writings posted on this site. If that happens, give the glory and praise to God.

Many blessings for the day, my friends.

A book’s a dream that you hold in your hand. Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.

When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a writer.  I shared this with an author friend of the family.  She said “Loretta, write what you know.”  But at 10 years old – What did I know?

Flash forward a couple dozen years and I found myself with a plethora of experiences relating to medical issues: my own, my family, and my friends.  With those experiences came the stories.  Survival stories, really.

Through these stories I realized God was leading me to do more and the birth of this blog and the book Surviving Medical Mayhem was bornI also love to share my stories in person and conduct Christian based workshops, seminars and talks to provide tools to survive and thrive through medical adversity.

Do you have a story?

Would you like to contribute to this place of encouragement?  Maybe your story is just be the “miracle” that someone else needs to read?
