I'd like to invite you to check out a couple of the books that Rest Ministries has published. The first is Mosaic Moments devotional book and you can read the first 50 pages online for free. It's our most popular book and is written by our daily devotional writers as well as myself.





The second one is Why Can't I Make People Understand? Discovering the Validation Those with Chronic Illness Seek & Why. You can also read this online for free to preview it. This was a book I wrote because of the pain I saw people feeling, despite their grounded faith and devotion to the Lord because people around them didn't "get it." Couple of the things people wrote to me about it really confirmed it was God at work and nothing to do with me!




"I just finished reading Why Can't I Make People Understand. It gave me new insight into some of my own emotions and frustration in my 4-year struggle with fibromyalgia, especially with my extended family members. It addresses many of the emotions that people with a chronic (and sometimes invisible) illness face and shows how to reflect on God's perfect Will for our lives through His Word (the Bible); how to be a blessing to others through the pain; and because of the pain, we are in a unique position to bless and encourage others to turn to Jesus for their comfort in their times of trial. I highly recommend it."
- Kathryn D.
My daughter loved the book Why Can't I Make People Understand. It helped her a lot but it helped me as her mother just as much. A lot of the things in the book, she wanted me to know but had difficulty telling me herself. thank you so much for enlightening me, and for giving me ways to help my daughter in her struggle. - K.


Anyway, I look forward to getting to know you and I encourage you to send us fun photos, quips, clips, etc. as we request in the ezine. We're one big family and we want to know how we can meet your needs, pray for you and get to know you better.

God bless!
