What is “normal” anyway?

There are so many myths, misunderstandings, and misgivings surrounding those who deal with chronic illness, physical limitations, and even “invisible” challenges.

In my experience, the best way to disrupt misunderstandings and bring hope is… transparency and honesty.

Using a combination of surprising anecdotes, practical wisdom, humor, and straight talk, I’m able to break down the barriers between the “normal” people and those in the chronic illness communities.

I open dialogues everyone wants to have, but nobody knows how to begin.

Here’s a sampling of topics, which can be tailored to your event:

  • More than Wheelchair Ramps: Developing an Illness-Friendly Organization
  • You > Your Illness
  • A Theology of Pain: Understanding the Role of God in Long-Term Illnesses
  • Resilience: Coping Skills I Learned from the Chronically Ill

Redefine Normal // Rediscover Hope

If you're engaged and excited about what you read here, then consider getting my newsletter. This won't be a way to read all my blog posts, and it's not a "help me sell my stuff" list. Let's be honest -- you don't need another sales newsletter, do you?

Yes, I'll talk about my books and where I'm speaking, but it's really another chance for community. I'll share random things that may or may not interest you...like my favorite coffee and why I think wombats are better than narhwals. And I'll invite you to do the same.
