"Tara Johnson is healing from the inside out! This book hits a home run for every person who is weary from facing diagnosis after diagnosis and tired of fighting the battle daily. For those suffering from chronic illness, her words come alongside you like a good friend reassuring you are not alone, not crazy, and have a purpose in God's plan for your life. It takes a story like Tara's to touch our heart, teach us empathy, and to trust God more than we ever imagined possible."

“but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles;

they will run and not grow weary,

they will walk and not be faint.”
