Review of "It Is Well With My Soul" by Shelly Beach

Review of It Is Well With My Soul

by Shelly Beach
It Is Well with My Soul: Meditations for Those Living with Illness, Pain, and the Challenges of Aging

Shelly Beach has taken the words of a beautiful favorite hymn and written a collection of meditations or devotions for those who are dealing with chronic illness, aging, daily pain and more.  She includes many examples from her own personal story which is highly moving as well as the stories of many others. She includes scripture readings and prayers with the meditations.  I have many chronic illnesses personally which forced me to quit teaching at the age of forty-nine and live on disability.  I have had to give up much, but have gained time for more prayer, more Bible reading, more study, and a deeper relationship with Christ and those I love due to my disabilities.  Shelly's writings helped me not to feel so alone and to realize that others have felt the same struggles and pains which I feel daily.   Thank you so much.   


Shelly Beach is a writer, public speaker, communications consultant, and college writing instructor. She is the author of seven books, including Precious Lord, Take My Hand and Ambushed by Grace.  Her novel Hallie's Heart won the Christy Award in 2008. She is the founder of the Cedar Falls Christian Writers' Workshop in Cedar Falls, Iowa.  She and her husband, Dan, have two children and live in Sparta, Michigan.

I received a complementary copy of this book from the publishers in exchange for my honest review.
