HOPE FOR THE HURTING

OUR CURRENT BIBLE STUDY
JULY 15 – SEPTEMBER 28, 2019 

Our Book: SICK & TIRED

Nearly one out of every two Americans has a chronic health issue, so it’s safe to say you either have a health condition, or you care about someone who does.

How do you live with the day-to-day struggle? Is it possible to have joy despite saying no to activities, food, opportunities and parties when you’d rather say yes? How do you explain your limitations to people who don’t understand?

In SICK & TIRED, author Kimberly Rae takes you on a journey toward personal peace. With humor and transparency, she offers encouragement and practical tips for the daily struggles. Find out how God’s truth will change your perspective, giving you strength beyond yourself and sight beyond your limitations. Come along and enjoy, knowing you are not alone…and there is hope!

Author Kimberly Rae

An award-winning, Amazon bestselling author of over 20 books, Kimberly Rae has been published over 200 times and has work in five languages.  She lived in Bangladesh, Uganda, Kosovo and Indonesia.  She now writes from her home in Madison, Georgia, where she lives with her husband and two children.

Since Addison’s disease brought her permanently back to the US, Kimberly has created a series on living joyfully despite chronic health problems.  Though she could find deep, heavy books on chronic illness, she wanted a book that was funny and encouraging.  One night when she couldn’t sleep from her medication, she started writing one!  “I want my Sick & Tired series to give empathy, encouragement, and a little practical help,” says Kimberly.  “When you’ve had health problems for years and years, you just want somebody to say ‘It stinks, You’re not alone, and here’s a funny story to help you get through your day!’”   https://kimberlyrae.com/author/
