Embracing Worth: Understanding Your Value in a Life with Chronic Illness

This 10-chapter study powerfully reminds us that our value isn’t found in what we can or cannot do, but in Christ alone. Regardless of what we’ve lost through chronic illness, this isn’t the end of our story, for in spite of our circumstances, in the midst of the hard, when we’re not sure we can take even one more breath, God is still good.

Through vulnerable storytelling, inspiring Scripture, insightful questions and thoughtful journal prompts, Cindee invites you to discover who God says you are: worthy, chosen, cherished, delighted over with singing, the crown of His creation, His masterpiece and magnum opus, beloved image-bearers of the King.

The Holy Spirit breathes through this work. Cindee writes from an experience of one who lives with chronic pain as well as one who lives alongside as a care-giver.  She brings this heart to Embracing Worth as a deepening guide to the reader.  But it must be said that Embracing Worth relates to everyone: not only as encouragement for those who may be living with chronic illness, or as one who walks besides, but to all of us living in this world. Embracing Worth is God’s desire for us all. Cindee’s personal reflections are offered so honestly and deeply, opening a path for others to be as honest and deep in their own responses. The prompts and questions Cindee offers here, supersede any kind of “prescribed” response. Rather they create an inner dialogue, a deepening quest to know ourselves as individuals and as a people beloved.  In addition to spiritual reflection there are tangible tools to take away into your own life.
