Christian Inspirational Books are a wonderful genre to read as they are encouraging. Be Held By Him:  Finding God When Life Knocks You Off Your Feet by Karen Brough is the latest book from this genre that I have read. 

Chronic Illness usually is a hard diagnosis to handle. I know many who have Chronic Illness and their days are filled with discouragement, aches, and pains. Karen Brough was diagnosed with a Chronic Illness over 10yrs ago and she has written this book as her story of her challenges and her victories since her diagnosis. Karen didn't let the discouragement keep her down, she relied on God to help her through the challenges. Chronic Illness doesn't have to be a life-changing and debilitating situation when God is on your side. 

I was very encouraged by this book. The book is very encouraging with the personal stories of Struggles during Illness being overcome. I LOVE the layout of the Book which has 16 chapters about how Karen trusted God through this and each chapter is filled with Scripture and a Prayer.  The Companion Workbook also has a wonderful layout with Questions to Ponder, many Scripture quotes, Biblical Encouragement and so much more. Karen's story will resonate with many, especially those with Chronic Illness. I HIGHLY recommend the book and Companion Workbook! WONDERFUL Book! 

Karen Brough is an Australian wife, mother, and former Primary School Teacher & has always had a passion for writing. She is the author of ‘Be Held by Him’ Finding God when life knocks you off your feet.

Ten years ago, when hit by a mystery illness, Karen began sharing the encouragement God gave to her, with others. Her heart loves nothing better than to demystifying how and who God is in the everyday and the miraculous.

She loves spending time with her husband and children. In Summer, you’ll find her enjoying the water and offering gelato to anyone who might drop by. In Winter, she makes soups, breads, and muffins. Often hiding vegetables in sweet recipes, much to her children’s dismay (secretly they love it though).


More from Karen

I wrote this book because I was given a dream to do it. I’d had my life turned upside down through medical mystery, and yet in it, God revealed His heart of love for me; and for those who are walking through the tough of life.

At every point, God unveiled every detail of the book, through dreams, verses, songs, life events and so much more. This book series is a testament to His miraculous, hope-filled and loving hand, which is ready to pick us up, hold us tenderly and show us the next step. He speaks in ways each one of us understands, and I LOVE this about Him.

I do not have a chronic illness as do two of my closest friends, but I believe that Be Held by Him and Companion Guidebook would benefit me as well.
