In Sickness and in Health
In In Sickness and In Health, author Connie Williams takes to heart the part of the marital vow that a husband and wife care for each other in times of sickness and in health. Williams asserts that she and her husband indeed took care of each other during their time of good health, but that period abruptly changed and a new season, one of sickness, caught them off guard. During that time, she learned what it meant to care for him during his illness. Her love for her husband, faith in God, and advice from the doctors’ gave her the strength, wisdom, and understanding to provide the best care possible to nurse him back to health. Williams shares her inspiring account with the readers while also providing a basic understanding of stroke disease, its symptoms, and how to lessen the risks of having one, with the purpose of helping others.
