Lillian Duncan Serves Faith with 'Power Up With God'
To be a fiction writer means to create difficult situations and have the characters overcome them. Ohio Christian fiction author, Lillian Duncan, hasn`t needed to create a difficult situation, she`s living it.
She developed Bell`s Palsy on April 1 of this year. Her doctor insisted on an MRI and bilateral brain tumors were discovered. Though schwannomas are almost always benign, they can not be left untreated and require long-term monitoring and treatment.
"I was faced with a decision. Feel sorry for myself or live out my faith. I chose to honor God, but it`s not easy. Every morning I have to make that choice again."
In spite of her medical condition, Ms. Duncan continues to be active in her writing career. Along with her fiction writing, she is currently using her own medical experiences as the foundation for her devotional blog Power Up With God powerupwithgod.com.
Power Up With God has been featuring a series of devotions relating to Facing Adversity God`s Way, including the 10 Steps For Facing Tough Times:
1. Read, Study, and Understand the Bible.
2. Believe in God`s love for you.
3. Accept God`s sovereignty.
4. Expect trouble.
6. Don`t get stuck in the valley.
7. Praise God.
8. Guard your thoughts, words, and actions.
9. Keep an attitude of gratitude.
10. Focus on others.
In November, Power Up With God will feature GOD ENCOUNTERS from readers and writers about their personal encounters with God.
She will be releasing a Christmas-themed suspense novella, THE CHRISTMAS STALKING, this holiday season. Along with that, the second in her Sisters By Choice series will be released next year. Her website www.lillianduncan.net offers more information about both of these projects.
Ms. Duncan is available for interviews to discuss writing in general, her books, but especially wants to focus on helping others to Face Adversity God`s Way.
