Peace in the Face of Cancer
Golden Scroll Award 2017 Nonfiction Book of the Year!
Millions of us are living in the shadow of cancer. Some are hoping to beat the odds and be cancer-free, while others know they are facing cancer for the long haul. And millions more of us are standing by someone with a cancer diagnosis and often feeling rather helpless as we grapple with the uncertainty a life-threatening illness brings.
Whether the cancer is considered “in remission,” “cured,” or “chronic,” it is possible to find peace as we face it. I share how to live well as a cancer survivor from the moment you are diagnosed through the rest of your life. I weave the story of her own experience as a long-time cancer survivor and those of other survivors around the world into this hope-filled book.
In these pages you’ll discover how to foster peace in your own home and life, as well as how to find God’s supernatural peace in your heart and mind—regardless of your or your loved one’s medical prognosis.
This one is another beautiful gift book with a leather cover (like 50 Days of Hope) and the stars in the background are shiny gold foil–pretty excited for its release! Retails for $15.99 and is available at both religious and secular bookstores, as well as online.
ESPECIALLY GOOD FOR: Those facing recurrences or medically incurable cancers, as well as those who loved 50 Days of Hope and want to read similar short chapters with lots of hope-filled stories
When GOD & Cancer Meet— 100,000+ copies in print!
When God & Cancer Meet is a book of powerful stories about cancer patients and their families who have been touched by God in miraculous ways. Sometimes God took the cancer out of them and sometimes He took them out of the cancer. But always, always He touched them with His divine love and met their deepest needs.
You can believe their stories because they have been there.
You can believe me because I have been there.
You can believe God because He promises He will be there.
This is a realistic book. It’s real because it admits that some people get cured of cancer and some don’t. It’s real because it acknowledges there are no easy answers to the unfairness of life. It’s real because it doesn’t pretend that your faith in God will keep hard times away.
But it’s also real because it shows real people trusting in a real God in real life, who found real joy, real peace, real hope, real strength and real encouragement.
It’s real because it shows what can happen when God and cancer meet.
If you don’t want to be defeated by cancer—no matter what it does or has done to your loved one, this is a book for you.

When God & Grief Meet: True Stories of Comfort & Courage
2021 Christian Market Award 2nd place Nonfiction Book of the Year; Golden Scroll Award 3rd place Christian Living Books
No one wants to need a grief book. But sooner or later we all face the death of someone we love. Whether the loss is through an unexpected tragedy or a prolonged illness, one of the things that helps most is to encounter others who have walked similar roads and faced similar questions. I believe When God & Grief Meet is a powerful message for mourners. Each chapter contains real-life inspiring stories of grievers from all walks of life who have faced difficult losses. The focus of the stories is not the circumstances of how the loves ones died, but how those left behind are finding the strength to continue living without them.
Written in a heartfelt and hopeful style, this book contains warm insights and true stories illustrating that God is close to the brokenhearted and can supernaturally comfort and encourage those whose minds are filled with doubts and whose hearts are filled with grief.
Readers are certain to find a story to which they can relate: loss from a car accident, congenital illness, suicide, plane crash, murder, cancer etc. Stories include the loss of a child, teenager, adult child, spouse, parents, and even an entire immediate family.
Retails for $15.99 and is available at both religious and secular bookstores, as well as on-line.
ESPECIALLY GOOD FOR: All grievers, including those with anger and deep questions for God
Finding the Light in Cancer’s Shadow:
Hope, Humor and Healing After Treatment
When I finished treatment, I was really surprised that life simply didn’t “go back to normal.” Instead I often found myself with more questions and anxiety than I had DURING treatment. So I wrote a book for myself and any other survivors (and their loved ones) who have finished their initial cancer treatment (surgery, chemo and/or radiation) and are now living in cancer’s “shadow.” The book’s message also will speak to those who are living with chronic cancers and therefore always under cancer’s shadow. Each chapter answers a question posed by cancer survivors and the answers are illustrated through true stories and humor.
Some of the chapters include:
- How do I know when I’m a survivor?
- Is everyone as paranoid as I am?
- How do I turn off that little voice of fear?
- Isn’t there a faster way to wait?
- Do I positively have to stay positive?
- How do I keep (get) a sense of humor?
- Will life ever be normal again?
- What if it comes back?
The book is similar to When God & Cancer Meet in that it is filled with true stories of hope and healing, but it’s also different in that each chapter has two or three patient stories instead of just one long story. Also, more humor is sprinkled throughout the book and the book probably won’t make you quite as “teary” as the first! Still, I believe you’ll feel God’s powerful touch and continue to believe that He can meet you at your deepest need.
Out-of-print, but some new and used copies still are available online.
ESPECIALLY GOOD FOR: Those who have finished initial treatment and now live in cancer’s shadow
He Cares New Testament with Psalms & Proverbs
He Cares is a book about someone who not only cares about your diagnosis and prognosis, but has the power to meet your deepest needs. That someone is the One who knows you best and loves you most, because He created every cell in your body. That someone is God. Inside, you will find God’s encouraging message to those who are dealing with serious illness. It’s a message of hope and healing. And it’s filled with promises and perfect peace. Why? Because He Cares.
He Cares is a specialized version of the New Living Translation New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs from Tyndale House. (No, I did not as my brother suggested “rewrite the Bible!”) Instead, as the special features author, I contributed an overview entitled “How Not to be Defeated by Illness;” book introductions; inspirational boxes related to specific Bible verses; and feature articles on such topics as “Families Facing Uncertain Times,” “The Mind-Body Healing Connection,” and “How Could God Let This Happen?”
From the foreword by Kay Warren (speaker/pastor’s wife/cancer survivor):
“When I was going through breast cancer treatment a few years ago, I found it difficult to read long portions of Scripture or even read complete books on cancer. I was nauseated, weak, and mentally fuzzy. How I wish this marvelous version of the New Testament with practical and insightful comments by Lynn Eib had been available. I have read each section of the notes with tears in my eyes, overwhelmed by the genuine comfort and solace Lynn’s words bring as she identifies with those who are ill.”
Whether you love to read Scripture or have never read a single Bible verse before, I believe you will be touched by just how much God really does care about you.
He Cares retails for $9.99 and is out-of-print, but gently used copies are available on Amazon and bulk discount copies are available from me.
ESPECIALLY GOOD FOR: Those facing serious or chronic illness as the patient or the caregiver
