As Katie Hubbard lived through the early days of a cancer diagnosis, she faced the fatigue and fear you’d expect. She also took the time to write short entries of prayer to the Lord. Many of us feel like we ought to say something substantial to God when we pray. That’s not a bad idea if you can manage it. If you have a one-year-old who won’t sleep, an unexpected cancer diagnosis, and worries about how you’re going to make it financially, it may be better not to force things, though. In the early days of her cancer diagnosis, Katie Hubbard shows that you can write (pray) the simple things—like praise and thanksgiving—when life gets complex.
