Hello everyone! It’s just the kids and I for the last week of summer break, so I’ve been pretty busy running around getting things done before school starts. After they go back next Wednesday, I will be blogging more consistently again. In the meantime, I wanted to share a book with you that I read while on vacation. It was written by a blogger here on WordPress named Thuam Siam Ngaihte and it is a very comforting and encouraging book for those who have endured or are enduring suffering.
I met Thuam last year when I first started blogging and we have been reading each other’s blogs ever since. Thuam has suffered epileptic seizures for many years. Many times the seizures are so severe that he is hospitalized. His book “Unconsumed: In His Abiding Grace” is a beautiful testimony of a man trusting in Jesus through the pain. The biggest thing I can say about Thuam is that he is a man of hope! He is a humble man of God who loves his wife and children dearly and his hope is fully in Jesus. He is also a stay at home Dad like me, which is cool! We are both home due to a chronic illness doing our best to serve and protect our families as we walk with Jesus despite the thorn. His blog posts have been very encouraging to me over this last year.
I read his book on both flights to and from California. His book was so comforting and encouraging to me that at times it made me tear up. As many of you know, I have Celiac disease and have suffered and fought this horrible autoimmune disorder for the last 7 1/2 years. Thuam encourages those who are suffering to not give up hope as he gently introduces us to Jesus, and inspires us to trust and rest in Him. Thuam’s heartfelt and loving words are comforting and he helped me see my suffering in a fresh and better perspective. I am very grateful for that. Anyone who has suffered chronically for years knows how hard it is to keep a positive outlook on the suffering. If that’s you, then you will be blessed reading the hope filled words written from the heart of a man who understands your pain.
Please show brother Thuam some love in Christ and check out his book. You can find his book on Amazon right here: Unconsumed: In His Abiding Grace

Thank you brother Thuam for your comforting and encouraging words. They are a great blessing to me! I pray the Lord uses “Unconsumed” to comfort those who are suffering and lead people all over the world to Jesus! God bless you and your family brother!
Grace and peace to you all!
