Going to the Party by Randy Alcorn

Imagine someone takes you to a party. You see a few friends there, enjoy a couple of good conversations, a little laughter, and some decent appetizers. The party’s all right, but you keep hoping it will get better. Give it another hour, and maybe it will. Suddenly, your friend says, “I need to take you …

Becoming the “Ideal Patient”

Are you or your loved one an ideal patient? I’m not asking whether you do everything the doctors tell you to do. I’m not referring to whether your disease is easily treatable. And I’m not talking about whether you have the right personality. What I do mean is this: Do you have the right blend of realism and …

Peace in the Face of Cancer

  I’ve just received word from Tyndale House that my manuscript for my new book Peace in the Face of Cancer has been “enthusiastically accepted!” This book has been rolling around in my head for at least a couple of years and I just couldn’t really relax in retirement until I got it out. For a …

Losing Your Faith?

  Have the trials of life caused you to lose your faith in God? Or are the doubts starting to pile up and you’re wondering if you’re on the verge of turning your back on Him? Oh, you still believe God exists, but you don’t feel like you can or want to trust Him anymore. …

How Could God Let This Happen?

  When you believe in God, it can be hard to come to terms with the fact that He has allowed adversity to come into your or your loved one’s life. Author David Biebel talks about this fact in his book If God Is So Good, Why Do I Hurt So Bad? He says there …

Laughter IS Good Medicine!

    It’s been said “Laughter is like changing a baby’s diaper—it doesn’t permanently solve any problems, but it does make things more acceptable for a while.” How long has it been since you had a good laugh? There’s nothing funny about cancer, but every time we laugh, it reminds us we’re still alive and …

A Place to Call Home

  Our world could use some good news couldn’t it? In many ways it’s a frightening time in which to be living; wars, rumors of wars, the constant threat of terrorism, the ups and downs of the stock market, violence in the classrooms, so many friends and relatives with cancer, families torn apart by abuse …

That’s NOT Fair!

  Remember when you were a kid and indignantly informed your parents: “That’s not fair!” They probably responded with some important information for you: “Life’s not fair.” Their response only made you madder! Nobody who’s being treated unfairly wants to hear it. It’s a logical response to a heartfelt emotion. But the longer we live, …

Finding the Right Attitude

    It’s often said that there are two kinds of people in life: optimists and pessimists. You probably think I’m going to tell you to be an optimist, but I’m not. I think the best attitude for someone facing cancer is neither total optimism (without a doubt, I’m going to be cured) nor total pessimism (without a doubt I’m …

Entrusting Our Loved Ones to God’s Care

  When cancer hits someone in a family, it’s as if the whole family “has” the disease because it disrupts our lifestyle and affects everyone in the home. We wish we could prevent its impact, but it’s not possible. Those of us who have been diagnosed with cancer may even soberly imagine what life would …
