Add yours

  1. Just discovered your writing and appreciate what you are doing so much, especially as a Christian physician/mom. Like you I’ve had to cut back significantly from clinical work (internal Med) for a number of reasons. I especially liked the article from desiring God: Doctors Live On The Brink of Death. Thank you again.


  2. Just wanted to say your articles have been an incredible blessing. As a pre-med Christian (who was homeschooled) I’m often caught between the medical literature I love reading (on end of life care, the role of empathy in medicine, etc.) and books which awaken my affections for Christ. Thank you for providing me reading which intertwines the two. I’ve sent many of them to dozens of friends in medical school who have very much appreciated them.


  3. Thank you so much for your feedback! The road is rewarding, but complex and at times unsettling. I pray the Lord guides you and equips you with His peace.
