The God of All Comfort: Devotions of Hope for Those Who Chronically Suffer
Coming Fall 2023!
When diagnosed with a chronic illness, where do you turn for strength, comfort, and hope?
“Judy, which Bible verses comfort and encourage you when you’re battling illness?” Terri asked. “I’d like to share them with a friend who is ill.”
Those verses, selected from years of journaling the pain and limitations of chronic illness and finding God’s strength, comfort and hope in His Word, ultimately became The God of All Comfort: Devotions of Hope for Those Who Chronically Suffer.
Based on author Judy Gann’s own experience with chronic illness as well as her interviews with eighteen people living with a variety of chronic and serious illnesses, the 52 devotions in The God of All Comfort draw readers into God’s Word to find the strength, comfort, and hope to cope with the daily challenges of living with illness. Topics include identity, pain, fatigue, loss of independence, and loneliness. This revised edition includes devotions based on the experiences of those suffering the effects of long COVID-19.

“Judy Gann’s workshop, “Marketing to Public Libraries,” was outstanding. It was filled with professional insights that helped me pitch my book to librarians in ways that captured their interest. Eight novels later, I’m proud to say that my books are on library shelves around the country thanks to Judy’s help.”

Sometimes it’s hard to know what to do or say to those who chronically suffer. Thanks to Judy Gann’s gem, The God of All Comfort, I can now give a book filled with devotions of hope and written with compassion, courage, and conviction. I recommend this book to pastors, counselors, friends, family, and those who suffer.
