CONFRONTING CANCER WITH FAITH

Testimonials

"Your faith should not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God." (I Corinthians 2:5)

Raise Your Bar of Faith

The "C" word . . . CANCER . . . I could hardly bring myself to say it. I have cancer.
How could this happen? I've always been so healthy.

What should I do now?
Am I going to die?
What about my family?
Will my world ever be normal again?

These were some of the thoughts and questions I asked myself when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I knew I would receive the best medical care available, but that wasn't enough. I needed more than what doctors could provide. I needed constant reassurance, comfort, and hope. There was only one sure way to get it: confront my cancer with faith.

Welcome to the website for "Confronting Cancer with Faith," where you can discover how to turn your cancer journey into a time of spiritual renewal. My award-winning Bible study is written specifically for the unique needs of those touched by cancer. It is useful for patients, spouses, family members, friends, caregivers, healthcare personnel, or anyone who wants better to understand cancer trials from a physical, mental, and spiritual viewpoint. The study addresses the deeper spiritual longings I had as I walked through the valley of cancer. Even now, I have to be reminded how to live in contentment. This study is not just about breast cancer but is applicable for any type of cancer - that's what the lavender ribbon means.

Take a minute and browse through my website pages. You will find this is a site about my book, opportunities I have had to share it, and the impact it has had on individuals. You will also have a chance to get acquainted with Ewe R Blessed Ministries. We all need to be reminded that we are indeed blessed by a Creator whose thoughts of us outnumber the grains of sand! "How precious also are Thy thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand" (Psalm 139:17-18).

Faithfully,

Ewe R Blessed Ministries

You are blessed (ewe r blessed). I am blessed. We should recognize our blessings and give thanks. A blessing is simply a favor from God. Ewe R Blessed Ministries proclaim the blessings of God in the ordinary and the extraordinary. I enjoy writing about those blessings and other spiritual issues. While my ministry began as a source of encouragement to those dealing with cancer, it expanded into other areas of crisis, including health-related issues, chronic illness, chronic pain, mental illness, death, grief, and matters of disability. We often need to be reminded that we are blessed by the touch of God in our lives.

The name of the ministry has a story behind it which I invite you to read about in my ministry website www.ewerblessed.com. I also devote an entire lesson in my book to the sheep-like characteristics unveiled to me while on my cancer journey. Hence, sheep have become near and dear to my heart. Like sheep, we must depend upon the Good Shepherd to meet our every need. He cares about our daily struggles.

Ewe R Blessed Ministries is more than just sharing my writings. As a speaker/singer/musician, I welcome opportunities to share my cancer experience, my mission work, and ministry activities. Read more about them in my Ewe R Blessed Ministries website. While you’re there, visit my blog at www.ewerblessed.com/blog to learn about a variety of blessings in my life as well as in the lives of others. A specific section is devoted to Unexpected Blessings from Cancer.

Testimonials

"This is a very well done spiritual guide. This guide will make the incredible journey through cancer more poignant and life-changing. Karen Allen has provided us with an amazing spiritual gift!"

Edward E. Partridge

M.D., Director, Comprehensive Cancer Center, the University of Alabama at Birmingham, Professor of Gynecologic Oncology

"What a shock! I just turned 49 and was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. My first instinct was to cry my heart out and plead for a miracle. My second instinct was to saturate myself in God's Word and promises. This Bible study specifically geared for cancer was truly a God-send and a lifeline to help me charter through this scary and unknown territory. The lessons helped me recognize my feelings and fears, taught me the necessity of surrender and dependence on the Lord, and helped me claim God's promises of His love and grace. This study is a heartfelt, soul-wrenching guide that led me to an intimacy with my Lord never before experienced."
