Meditations for Finding Peace & Hope in a Health Crisis | The Waiting Room

The waiting room. A place that one rarely—if ever—desires to be.

I’ve spent a fair share of hours in waiting rooms twirling my thumbs, aimlessly scrolling social media in an attempt to distract myself from what is to come—seeking something to ease the emotions that well up inside amid the wait.

The wait is always a bit unpredictable and a bit unsettling. It’s a place we could all use a dose of comfort which is why I am excited to share The Waiting Room: 60 Meditations for Finding Peace & Hope in a Health Crisis with you.

First-time author Meredith McDaniel beautifully shares how to open our eyes to see the manna in our midst in the book In Want + Plenty: Waking up to God’s Provision in a Land of Longing.
