Broken Body, Wounded Spirit: Balancing the See-Saw of Chronic Pain (Series)
by Celeste Cooper, RN, BSN and Jeff Miller, PhD

There is nothing charismatic about chronic pain. Pain is greedy and demanding. It consumes our time, our relationships, and our function; it threatens everything that is important in our lives, and threatens to rob us of our character and our dignity.

The winter season is often compared to dying. This death allows us to come full circle and prepare for new ways of thinking, ways that allow us to reclaim control and defend ourselves against the grotesque monster that creates fear, agony, loneliness, and resentment.

Sharing their medical expertise, and Celeste as patient and advocate, the authors start with a blank canvas as white as the pure driven snow, full of possibilities. Offering a blend of integrative therapies and day by day tidbits of wisdom, the authors encourage their readers finalize to create a picture worth a thousand words, and encourage them to explore their unique, and sometimes, universal experiences. 
Join in as we walk the barren winter landscape that is necessary to rid ourselves of previous conceptions as we prepare for the spring season of rebirth.

“This lovely book of devotions is rich with insight and practical suggestions for any one with chronic pain. It is filled witch inspirational and healing words dealing with topics from nutrition, exercise and sleep to relating successfully to your doctor.”
~Susan E. Opper, MD, Medical Director of Saint Luke’s Pain Management Services, Saint Luke’s Hospital of Kansas City.

“I love the very idea of “Winter Devotions”.   The struggle of living with chronic pain is compounded for many by the winter months when it is cold, damp, and often gloomy.  Bones ache, joints hurts, and the spirit sometimes become depressed. This wonderful book provides a tool to help with those issues.  The quotes, photography and motivation of authors Celeste Cooper and Jeff Miller all bring much needed hope and relief.”

~Myra J. Christopher, Kathleen M. Foley Chair in Pain and Palliative Care at the Center for Practical Bioethics and Principal Investigator of the Pain Action Alliance to Implement a National Strategy.
