This month’s non-fiction blog tour is for: Strength Renewed: Meditations for Your Journey through Breast Cancer. This book is part of a blog tour organized by the Australian Christian Readers Blog Alliance.

I was given the opportunity of reading a review copy of this book but since my husband had cancer 25 years ago I have found it difficult to read this subject matter. Nevertheless I felt it was worthwhile to provide the information here:

About the Book:
Comfort and hope to sustain you through the months ahead.

Nothing saps your strength quite like a cancer diagnosis—unless it is the energy-stealing chemotherapy and surgeries you face in your fight against cancer. But you can find hope and strength in the pages of Scripture, and in the experience of someone who has been there.

In Strength Renewed, breast cancer survivor and registered nurse Shirley Corder combines her encouraging personal stories with powerful passages from Scripture to help you along the road to recovery. These devotions can be read in sequential order to move you through a typical cancer journey from diagnosis through treatment. But each meditation also stands on its own, so you can go directly to the entry that speaks to your need—right now.

You have a partner and a cheerleader in Shirley—and in God—on the rough road ahead. Let Strength Renewed lift you up as you travel.
