Hope, Strength and Courage


Hope, Strength and Courage: With Stories in Medicine Training and the Atypical Sibling Rivalry

by Kathryn Lee

GENRE: Autobiography - Medical and Family

This book has been a self-reflective journey of a medical doctor as an ordinary person going through ordinary life's ups and downs. In epistolary form, its articles were written during the special time of her first year of training to become a general practitioner/family physician, including making the tough decision to give up hospital specialist training, "withdrawing" from fast-paced hospital work, transitioning to working from a metropolitan hospital to a rural community clinic, witnessing and getting used to a younger sibling's growing up, and being independent from a close and loving family. Some also feature a promotion of the author's new academic career at the start of the COVID 19 pandemic and how it was perceived. The book shows a journey of love, strength, perseverance, purpose and encouragement. Lots of anecdotes, lots of stories, lots of quotes. With love and respect.


God turned me around, and I became able to stand up and take control over my negative thoughts and actions. I realize now that darkness feeds on darkness, and only by allowing light into our darkness, are we are rescued. I shifted my priorities as J. John said to, and learned to put God first into the things that troubled me, such as finances, independence, relationships, schedules, troubles and so on. I prayed to Him to guide me. Now, I exercise, I eat well, and I’ve started to feel fulfilled at work. I have been given an extra boost of confidence, and Mum and Dad are reassured that I am under the protection of God. A couple of things happened after I prayed—which was the day I posted, “Today we are going to have breakthroughs.” First, you replied; second, my mood changed; and third, life turned around, even to the point of one of my female patients found a lost result of her private cancer screening. So many good things happen, thanks to God. So, I encourage you to stick with our God. So I am going to dedicate my life to Him. Tomorrow is a new day. I have a full day of study and will attend a workshop to do with women’s health and reproductive issues. I hope you are learning something spiritual and valuable on a daily basis too.
