In her book Strength Renewed, Shirley Corder opens her heart to those that are traveling the road that breast cancer is taking them down. She a survivor, herself, she can say, "I've been there, done that." That is what make this book so real, from the voice of someone that has experienced what you are experiencing right now. These devotional meditations were written with you, the reader, in mind and will help you in your journey from diagnosis to treatment and beyond. She knows the physical, emotional and spiritual roller coaster that you are about to ride on. She remembers the day she heard those words from the doctor, "You have cancer." Corder will encourage you as you fight cancer and and come out on top.
Each chapter starts with a scripture passage to read, brief thought concerning the passage and your cancer journey that pertains to the scripture that was read, some thought provoking questions to answer either mentally or written in a journal and a prayer wrapped up with one single scripture passage that would be nice to memorize for the day's meditation. The book contains 90 short (two page spread) meditations just for your journey. I pray that you, like Corder will be able to say....
