First Book Endorsement

I’m sick. The 101.2 fever finally broke sometime in the night, but I’m still achy and my head feels like it’s going to explode. I’ve spent most of the day and night and day asleep. Both Michael and I came down with the virus Julia had last week. Darrin, my hero doctor, nurse, cook, shopper and cleaner has been taking care of all three of us.

It shouldn’t surprise me. This illness is coming days before Leila and I leave for Central Asia. Fifty women, the largest group to date, will be coming together for their annual women’s conference. The group is composed of missionaries from different organizations, teachers, business people, expats, and even some nationals who don’t speak English. Your prayers for us and our families are greatly appreciated as we continue to prepare to leave. I will write more about this trip later.

Probably the biggest highlight for me this week was receiving my first official book endorsement!! Robin Lee Hatcher, award winning author of 70 books, had originally decided to turn down endorsement requests for the rest of 2013. When she heard my book was about cancer, she decided to make an exception. Her encouragement through her emails has been a tremendous blessing to me. I couldn’t wait to share the endorsement here with you!

When a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, she is thrust into a foreign world. Most, like me, look for information that will help them navigate their new reality. Warrior in Pink is just the book I wish I’d been able to find. Vivian Mabuni writes with transparency, warmth, and depth, and I believe all who read her special insights will be blessed and encouraged.
