CFP: Susan, welcome to Overcoming With God. We appreciate your willingness to share your testimony of overcoming with our readers.
Would you tell us about the most difficult thing in your life you have had to overcome, with God’s help?
I had a major stroke when I was 42 years old, and the doctors could not find a cause for it. I now have no residual effects physically. I feel my recovery was a direct answer to the prayers of many people.
(CFP: My sister suffered a major stroke last year and my father had one, also. Their recovery also a miraculous intervention from God. PTL for your healing, Susan!)
What passages in the Bible have been most helpful to you in those times?
In the most difficult times, I remember Psalm 48:14, which tells me that even if I change, God never changes. “For this God is our God forever and ever; He will be our guide even unto death.”
Disability friendliness: Is this latest release available in audio format or do you have any other works available on audio? Do your e-books have audio capability? Do you have any in large print?
I have several books in large print, including the Mainely Mysteries series, Ladies’ Shooting Club series, the Alaska Weddings series, Almost Arizona, Hearts in the Crosshairs, The Crimson Cipher, and Finding Marie.
In this latest work, do you have any topics useful for bibliotherapy, or therapeutic influence through reading about a disorder or situation?
My novella in Westward Christmas Brides, “Another Christmas Story,” deals with grief, loss of a parent, raising a precocious child, and lack of security. It is set in the 1850s.
(CFP: This novella will be reviewed this week on the OWG blog by me and has strong bibliotherapy elements as you have mentioned, Susan.)
