So first there was the moment I walked into our local bookstore and saw To Be Made Well on display.
And then there was the message from a woman who had heard To Be Made Well quoted at her daughter’s high school graduation last week, as a part of the graduation speaker’s desire to tell students that their value comes from their belovedness and not their achievements.
And then I walked into church and there was a stack of books for members of our congregation to read during the upcoming 7-week sermon series on healing.
And then there was the group of local women who gathered to discuss the book and how much we need to believe our belovedness in order to be made well.
And then a podcast interview, and a Youtube channel interview, and a Sirius XM radio interview.
And the emails from people who are using the book for a summer book club, and the others who are planning to use it for small group study in the fall. (I will be releasing a 7-week curriculum for small groups, with short video teachings for each week, later this summer. Stay tuned!)
The woman who grew up Catholic and doesn’t know what she believes. The teacher who practices Zen Buddhism. The 17-year-old young man who wants to follow Jesus. The woman in chronic pain. The man seeking spiritual truth. This is a partial list of the people who have reached out to me lately about To Be Made Well.
I am so grateful that in sharing my healing journey I also can contribute to the healing of others. Healing is for each of us and for all of us.
