Everyone has tests, trials and some tribulations in their life. It is a part of this life. Christians have a better grasp of understanding there is a life to come. One that we can only get a glimpse of, from time to time, while on this side of Eternity.
But, sometimes even Christians will falter a bit when under extreme pressure. Whether it is sickness, the loss of a loved one, a child battering a terminal illness, the loss of a business or a job. All of these things can test our Faith. Sometimes, even distract us enough to lose sight of our Faith.
In his book, “A Spoonful of Courage for the Sick and Suffering,” Dr. Charles Page shares some examples of how some of his patients taught him a thing or two about dealing with adversity. Sometimes it was a smile while in the midst of pain. Sometimes it was just a word. Sometimes it was just sharing what their life has been like. But in his book, he shares about how it all relates back to Faith. Faith in God. Faith in Jesus. Faith in our fellow man. Faith in what comes next.
Dr. Page tells folks that he is the best guy to see on the worst day of their life! Praise God! I love that. Dr. Page is a surgeon, storyteller and author of several books for both adults and children. He and his wife live in Nacogdoches, Texas and he has taken time from his rounds this morning to join us on the broadcast!
I want to transition to some of your overseas work. In order to help in that transition, tell us about the boy in your book that had a cancerous growth on his neck, which could have been treated successfully – if he had not been born in such a poor, rural country.
You also go a couple of times per year to train surgeons in these areas. But Niger is one of your favorite places. Why is that?
Back to the United States a bit. How is health care changing in this country?
I read that doctors have the one of the highest suicide rates among all the professions. Is that true?
Why do you think that is?
As an ER doctor, we hear about the lack of sleep. How does that affect someone over the long term? Year after year after year?
You wrote a book on this topic from a Biblical perspective, correct?
Are your books are available on Amazon and in book stores?
If someone wanted to get in touch with you, ask a question or maybe do an interview such as this, how can they do that? How can they get in touch with you?
Folks, you really need to get a copy of Dr. Charles Page’s book, “A Spoonful of Courage” for yourself. This book is one that will inspire you with each and every story! I am absolutely being honest here, I could not put it down. Each story motivated me to see what was coming in the next story! It is THAT Good! Praise God.
