In Welcome Everything, Ted serves as a guide through some of the spiritual contours of a journey through cancer. The story of his battle with both Acute Myeloid Leukemia and Hodgkins Lymphoma is detailed through sharing excerpts from a blog written during two and half years of treatments, surgeries, relapses, a transplant, and a whole host of side effects. Addressing issues that are experienced in a cancer journey as well as any kind of suffering, a hope and an identity securely tied in Christ are themes that run through these pages. Included are chapters of current reflections, looking back at the terrain traversed in these tumultuous years. Not a self-help book or a guide to cancer, this book is a look at what it means to welcome everything, including cancer, as a teacher that can bring more into one’s life than could ever be imagined.

What people are saying …
“Reflections on My Journey with Cancer is more than a cancer book, it is a treasure of reflections that helps us all learn what it means to Welcome Everything. As Dr. Ted Wueste engages the idea of welcoming everything, he artfully gives us a peek into his own cancer journey to explore what it means to accept those things we cannot change. Without offering prescriptions, Dr. Wueste, invites us into his experience, the good and the bad, offering keen insights and applications for all who are hurting and experiencing a loss of control in their lives. This book can be read and studied to understand central themes of the Christian life (Is God doing this to me? What does it mean to trust God?), but undoubtedly it will serve as a devotional for many who are struggling through difficult times. Timely, and critically important to our own spiritual development, I strongly recommend that you explore what it means to Welcome Everything.” Doug Kelley, PhD

What people are saying …
“The devotional received so much positive feedback. Week after week people told me how much they were enjoying it. Several people indicated that they we’re going to do it again immediately after Advent because they felt like there was more they could get out of it. Thank you for the time, prayers and wisdom you poured into this writing this book.” Mary Beth Rentsch, church leader in Michigan
