Captivating and Encouraging
By Elizabeth Proske on August 20, 2014
I don't usually enjoy non-fiction, but this book was recommended to me so I ordered it and found it fascinating. The author describes many health obstacles she and her husband have faced, and are still facing, and it should be a depressing story, but somehow Ms. Morrow makes it a celebration of life and hope. This long-time missionary recounts how, in her lowest moments, her faith in Jesus Christ carried her through. The book is interspersed with some lovely original poems, including one by written by her young daughter, and Ms. Morrow uses scriptures in every chapter, not in a preachy way, but in a conversational way that helps the readers apply the verses to their own lives.
Faith healing or healing faith
By L. Hwang on June 29, 2013
Many people with chronic illness are looking for miraculous cure and their wishful hopes are disappointed repeatedly. This book is about true faith. After reading "Tears Turned to Gold" by Marie Morrow, I no longer pray my insomnia go away, but the long dark lonely hours turn to precious sweet moments being with Jesus. After reading more articles at mariesreflections.com, I bought 12 copies to circulate among my friends with chronic illness.
A rare gem of a book!

Will turn your tears to "gold" too!
By Janet on May 31, 2013
Having just finished reading "Tears Turned to Gold", I can tell you that I had tears, not of sorrow, but from reading about amazing courage, depth of love and strengthening of faith. Thankfully, I have never battled with chronic illness, and honestly felt I couldn't relate to or understand those who do. Now I understand so much more. This book took me on a touching, real-life journey into the side of life most of us would prefer to avoid facing, but often cannot. It is an experience I would recommend, to give you more compassion, and a more profound insight into what so many around us suffer on a day-to-day basis. And if you or a loved one has suffered with long-term, debilitating disability or affliction, this is a must-read. It expresses the author's innermost thoughts- the emotions and choices, ups and downs. It helps you comprehend the depths of what one may not be able to express themselves. With a truly happy ending, and life lessons throughout!
