From The Heart
A Growing Faith by Mary Jane Gonzales continues her journey living with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD).
Now bedbound Mary Jane Gonzales is fully reliant on others and God. “If I couldn’t abide in the Lord, I would have total despair and darkness.” Her faith is stronger than ever and Mary Jane Gonzales knows “I was better off with God on this road than without Him.” Illness meant time to ponder on God. Mary Jane Gonzales has drawn closer to God. She talks about her relationship noting “God is still God and He is faithful. ”
Mary Jane Gonzales talks intimately about RSD and how it has affected her. However she is not defined by her illness. “RSD is not the sum of me, just a part of me.”
In The Blink Of An Eye by Mary Jane Gonzales is a short but inspirational book about living with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome (RSDS). For those without the condition, the book educates. For those with the condition the book shows you are not alone.
Mary Jane Gonzales is remarkably cheerful inspite of great pain and being housebound. There is so much she cannot do but says “I’m very grateful for the things I can do.”
Like many living with disability, Mary Jane Gonzales is reliant on others. She is sustained by those who love her. “I will never forget the kindness of friends and family.”
