Chronic Love by Brooke Bartz

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for Chronic Love by Brooke Bartz, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

ABOUT THE BOOK

Title: Chronic Love: Trusting God While Suffering with A Chronic Illness

Author: Brooke Bartz

Publisher: Ambassador International

Release Date: September 1, 2019

Genre: Christian Living, Health and Wellbeing

Suffering is inescapable in this world. 

Jesus told us we would face perilous trials and that even our bodies would feel the effects of the Fall. For women dealing with chronic illness, most books offer quick-fix counseling or devotional verses taken out of context, helpful only for momentary encouragement.

For true and lasting comfort we must dig deeper into God’s Word and the context in which those much-used passages were written.

In Chronic Love, Brooke Bartz reveals a deeply raw and descriptive account of life with a chronic and debilitating illness, and she shares with readers how comfort and strength can be found through the Truth in God’s Word.

Specifically designed for women who daily battle chronic illness, Chronic Love‘s goal is to provide solid Scriptural encouragement for the fight.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

Chronic Love is mainly written with those who live daily with chronic illness. I could relate with much of this book and to many of the personal stories here. I’ve been dealing with a severe chronic illness for over 20 years. I’ve read many books or devotionals that are really good, but only really touch the surface. I appreciate that Chronic Love goes much deeper into the life of author Brooke Bartz, teaching readers how to deal with the chronic illness each of us face daily.

It’s so easy with chronic illness, and even when the pain and suffering are but for a short while, to give into the suffering instead of going to the scriptures for help and comfort. I have failed in this many times over the years. I am glad, and I appreciate the time and research Ms. Bartz did to write this book. I have an ebook so I can carry this with me at all times through my Kindle app on my phone. It will be so helpful to me to have the personal stories and all of the many wonderful scripture to refer back to when I am feeling so down. I can keep going on and on about this amazing book, but you get the idea of the meaning behind this book, as well as how helpful it will be to everyone reading it.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Brooke Bartz is a stay-at-home wife and mom who lives daily with a chronic disease, knowing firsthand the daunting, gnawing physical and spiritual pain it causes. Yet disease was not always her close companion; in the years before her diagnosis, she grew up playing sports and earned a full scholarship to play volleyball at the University of Mary Hardin Baylor. Not yet a Christian, she transferred colleges and attended an event for an on-campus ministry; as the Lord had planned, she heard the Gospel and He saved her. Soon after and while still in college, she married her childhood crush and began a volleyball coaching career.

Living with rheumatoid arthritis and gastroparesis, Brooke desires for women to know the truth about the God who loves them and is with them each day as they face disease and disability; she shares the Truth of the Bible as their ultimate healing. Brooke’s passion is spurring on the women God leads to her sphere of influence, inspiring their hearts to keep their strength and hope at the foot of the cross, to trust in the Great Shepherd to one day heal them completely in glory, even though for now they are suffering on earth.
