What is included with this book?


When I received news of an "incurable" cancer recurrence, I naturally assumed it was the will of God. I was forty-eight years young and determined to accept whatever came my way. But there's a different mindset required when you are either accepting death or preparing for battle. In this search for meaning and direction, I found hope, permission, and the power to choose life. As a two-time cancer conqueror, Doreen understands the ups, downs, fears, and concerns of those struggling through disease. Combining her expertise in goal-setting and effective thinking skills with the knowledge and power of Scripture, Doreen offers seven critical choices to co-create an environment for healing. Most people hope and pray for healing but subconsciously sabotage their own wellness. They spend more time worrying and talking about the disease than their vision of health. It's vital they learn to manage their thoughts, emotions and self-talk in a manner consistent with what they want. The Mind to Heal is book two of the HEALED series. It focuses on our role and responsibility to receive healing. It provides tools, principles, and strategies for how to think victoriously to overcome disease.


Choosing life is an attitude, a perspective, a way of thinking and a way of living. Choosing life says, "Cancer may be there, but it doesn't have the right to stay there." It acknowledges the doctors' diagnoses as the physical, medical reality of the world they live in each day without accepting that reality as yours. Choosing life takes on a warrior spirit that says I know who I am and to whom I belong. I know my rights and privileges as a child of the Most High; and I fight from a position of authority and victory, not from a position of fear, doubt and defeat. Choosing life differentiates the inevitability of death we all face one day from allowing disease to ravage, steal and destroy me. "I know I have to die someday, but it won't be from cancer," is the battle cry of the believer. Make no mistake...managing your mind daily, controlling how you think, and being very intentional with your self-talk is serious business and requires attention and discipline, particularly when your physical symptoms and the doctor's prognosis appear contrary to what you desire. How do you handle disappointing or alarming news? How do you interact with well-wishers who mourn your condition? How do you control your mindset in the midst of crisis? And what difference does it make? If how we think, what we say, and what we do are not consistent with the hope of healing we desire, it becomes an upward battle of activity and a downward spiral of emotions as we consciously are dying to live, but subconsciously living to die. There is a better, more effective way. This book gives you tools and principles to take control. I pray you take that healing choice. Doreen Lecheler
