Bookworms and Bloggers

Meet the Bookworm and Blogger

I have forever been an avid reader. As teenager I was hooked on the romance and fantasy genre. As the years walked on, the time arrived where I could no longer ignore the persistent, yet gentle calling of our Lord Jesus as He ushered me into His wonderful Kingdom of Light and Love. He used the writings of many dear saints along this journey and I would love to share some of their works that made a great impact on my life.

A new season entered my life when I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. CFS later also made its appearance . I have been greatly blessed, encouraged and supported by fellow suffers of this illness who courageously shared their journeys through blogging. Their naked honesty and love made this road so much easier.

I also want to thank the few and far between medical professionals  who, against all odds, stood up against their colleagues in defending the FM/CFS community and for acknowledging the legitimacy of these diseases.

Through this page I want to pay tribute to all these wonderful people. My life would have been so much poorer without you!

Books on Fibromyalgia and CFS

1. Faces of CFS

The author of this incredible book on Constant Fatigue Syndrome, Dr David S Bell, currently practices general medicine in Lyndonville, New York. In 1985, 220 people from Lyndonville, a small country town and farming community in New York State, became I’ll with CFS. Dr Bell was their medical practitioner and this book is the fruit of his work during that time. What makes Dr Bell so special is that not only is he a doctor, but also a word artist and photographer. The book can be downloaded free of charge at his website,

I highly recommend not only this book, but also this dear man’s website. His sensitivity and compassion are rare gems!

God’s Gems

1. The Practice of the Presence of God

This little book is one of those rare treasures that helped me immensely in my search for The Pearl of Great Price. The author, Brother Lawrense of the Carmelite Order, was, prior to becoming a monk, known as Nicholas Herman of Lorraine and a soldier. At the monastery his duties were that of dish washer and later as shoe mender. Whilst busy performing his humble domestic duties, he perfected the art of living in God’s presence continuously and effortlessly by just doing everything for his love of God. An amazing read! Although it can be downloaded from a few websites, I would recommend that you read the latest edition as it is much friendlier to the 21st century mindset.
