Deborah Howard, RN, CHPN (Certified Hospice and Palliative Nurse), and author of "WHERE IS GOD IN ALL OF THIS", will address the theme: "A CHRISTIAN NURSE REFLECTS ON FINDING GOD's PURPOSE IN OUR SUFFERING".
Deborah and her husband, Theron, live near Little Rock, Arkansas, where she divides her time between writing, lecturing and working as a hospice nurse. She has worked in various nursing fields. However, it was when she found hospice care that she discovered her nursing passion. She views her work with hospice as a personal ministry that has given her great satisfaction. "Many people tell me they don't see how I could love this particular field of nursing," she says, "but I tell them it is a most rewarding profession. At the end of every day, I go home knowing, with absolute certainty, that I've made a significant difference in someone's life." Deborah is a versatile musician and an avid tennis player and tennis official. She enjoys the arts, reading, decorating, gardening, movies, word games, cooking and spending time with friends and family. She is a member of the Bible Church of Little Rock and treasures her time in the study of God's word, both corporately and personally.
Today our guest Deborah Howard takes a biblical look at the ways God uses suffering to mold us as He intends us to be. We should see our sufferings through a spiritual lens and respond in godly ways.
Her book "Where is God in All of this" offers 15 reasons why God brings suffering our way. Being a hospice nurse, Deborah has not written her book from a ‘safe’ theoretical perspective. You can reach Deborah at her web site: http://www.deborahhoward.net/.
