I found Maxine’s book very inspiring. Her book, Power Walking, is a memoir containing poetry, affirmations, and Scripture. It is filled with prayers to God. And, the most unique part of all is her life in falling.
Maxine has physically fallen many times in her life because of medical conditions. Many I suspect were caused by a type of perfectionism in which she must carry on at any cost despite a broken ankle, fainting spells, stroke, anxiety attacks, mental health, etc. Sometimes she was hospitalized, and other times released from the hospital on the same day. The Scriptures are appropriately related to her seeking God’s help or successfully coming out of each circumstance.
She has a unique history of the suffering in her life, but also how God brought her through. Maxine is not beating you down with Scripture but asking you to join her in standing up after a fall.
Maxine is made of stronger stuff than me. It is a book small enough to be read often and should be. I plan on referring to her book again.
