Suffering through the painful recovery of a mysterious autoimmune illness, while navigating the world of Complex Migraines that produce stroke like symptoms, author Michelle L. Myers takes on the subject of Chronic Pain and Invisible Illness, as a Believer in Christ.

Putting to rest condemnation and shame over a sickness in your life, Michelle refers to the Bible, and Divine Revelation to inspire and encourage.

As the subtitle suggest, this book is about hoping and coping in a world of hurt. Because of the whimsical style in which it is presented, Pastor Michaels story reaches a diverse audience - even those who don't suffer chronic issues!
