A Whacky Dream or Not?

Aug. 3, 2021

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Aug. 3, 2021 /Christian Newswire/ -- Author Beth Praed was working on her fifth book, a devotional about disease, when she received disturbing news from her neurologist. She was told that her MS would eventually be fatal for her. Beth was depressed and angry. The reason for being depressed was obvious. But, the anger? She was mad at God and questioned how He could let that happen to her! After Beth received the latest diagnosis from her neurologist, she shelved the book and didn't write again for a year and a half.

And then, she had a dream about her funeral. In that dream, she could see her body in a casket. Then the "dream minister" began his homily. He mentioned how "God gave Beth her first book on MS in a series of dreams. That book became the top book on multiple sclerosis for six years at Amazon. (Which happened in real life.) But the book for which she is best remembered is her devotional about disease." When Beth woke up, she remembered the dream and realized that the dream minister was talking about this book! So, she started writing again.

Maybe it was just some whacky dream. But now her 5th book, "So You Have a Disease: Devotions and Stories To Restore Hope," has been published by CrossLink Publishing and is available. Beth says, "I am so grateful to God for giving me the motivation to finish writing the book. It probably wouldn't have happened otherwise if He hadn't given me that whacky dream!"

So You Have a Disease: Devotions and Stories To Restore Hope (ISBN 978-1633573208, Trade Paper, $9.95, ASIN B08BF9KTQ, ebook, $2.99, 127 pages, Christian Living / Spiritual Growth) from CrossLink Publishing, is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and wherever fine books are sold.

I was diagnosed twelve years ago with a rare autoimmune disease, and although I am stable and doing well, my life took a huge U-Turn all those years ago. Other unexpected events in my life have occurred along the way, both before and after my diagnosis...as they do in all our lives! Just about every topic resonated with me, in one way or another. Thank you, Beth, for giving us this beautiful gift. I know I'll be coming back to it for comfort and inspiration time after time.
