Carol Olivia Johnson: “Against All Odds”
Book Discussion and Signing
To overcome your situation, it is imperative that you weigh your options
I was inspired to write this book with hopes of motivating others facing the same or similar health issues. It is imperative that you seek guidance from God first, and follow His direction for your healing, rather than seeking and fully relying on the guidance of medical professionals. It is always best to read the side effects of any medication you are prescribed in a medical dictionary; weighing the pros and cons of the side effects. Also, it never hurts to get a second opinion. If prolonged usage of medication is detrimental to your health, perhaps you should reconsider taking the drug, or have something else prescribed with fewer side effects. When I was going through my situation, I did not realize it at that time, but I was exercising “mustard seed” faith over my situation. Standing on the word of God was my choice of action. If I had relied solely on what the doctor told me, I would be depressed, have weakened brittle bones due to the side effects of taking steroids for 30 or more years, and never would have had a child, or stepped out on faith to run a childcare facility, and foster over 30 children. I thank God for giving me the discernment, wisdom and understanding to not believe all the negative things the doctor predicted for my life.
