Chronic illness is a cruel and lonely journey. Lauren knows this firsthand in her own battle with Lyme disease, which she was first diagnosed with when she was nine years old. Silent Suffering is a story of resilience and joy against all odds, and a testimony that healing from late stage neurological Lyme disease and trauma is possible. Lauren wrote her story to offer hope to those in the trenches. She and her husband, Andy, share stories that illuminate God's heart toward hurting people.


Countless miracles have taken place, but not in the ways that were expected. Lauren shares the different lessons she has learned around the world since moving out of the country when she was 18. There's a common theme weaved throughout the book that God was always doing a deeper work than physical healing. It's a reminder that there is a God who's good beyond our belief, and that a life anchored in His love can still be lived amidst unfathomable suffering.


“My heart is to bring readers along on a journey. I’m not offering another formula, theology on healing, another diet, or another protocol that works for everyone. I share what my healing journey has looked like, and I offer stories that prove God’s faithful hand in the midst of silent suffering that has no answers or end in sight. I pray it blesses every soul who reads it.” —Lauren
