What readers are saying about A Different Dream for My Child . . .
The examples of comfort and shared experience will benefit all who read this book. Chronic sorrow follows chronic disease, and the reflections offered are excellent in addressing this. Every problem discussed is “right on” and pulls out personal recollections of many of my patients. I would recommend it to families and caretakers alike.
— David H. Van Dyke MD, Pediatric Neurologist
Powerful, insightful, and candidly honest . . . Jolene’s words deliver both comfort and biblical counsel on the diverse and complex emotional, spiritual, relational, and practical aspects of caring for sick children.
          — Shelly Beach, award-winning author of Precious Lord, Take My Hand and Ambushed by Grace
If you have experienced or are living in deep sorrow brought on by your child’s condition, I recommend that you open this book and allow the balm of understanding to meet you where you are at . . . to help ease your ongoing ache, your loneliness, and your feelings of isolation.
          — Patsy Clairmont, author of Catching Fireflies and Women of Faith® Speaker
What a tremendously helpful and inspiring book! . . . With each devotion, my spirit was lifted into a hope I have rarely felt in the midst of the battle. I highly recommend this book to any parent whose dreams for their children have been sidetracked by illness.
          — Rene Gutteridge, author of Never the Bride and My Life as a Doormat
