I wanted to thank you for the great opportunity of submitting an article and publishing it in the Journal of Christian Nursing. I appreciate the chance to be a part of the journal. In these difficult times, I am more and more convinced that such a journal is extremely valuable and needed in today's society.


Also, thank you for the discount to be a part of the (NCF) community. I am officially a member and will certainly encourage other nurses to join and support the journal.

"Hope After TBI" is an excellent informative article. JCN's art department is excellent. This article was of personal interest to me as I have a condition known as primary orthostatic tremors, tremors on standing. A number of us with this disorder have had head injuries and are wondering if those injuries contributed to this disorder.


"The Difference Rehabilitation Makes" is an excellent article. This is one of my all-time favorite articles. Why? Kathy (Schoonover-Shoffner) was so transparent and this article described the gold standard of care. I remember sitting in a hospital room with my son, who was diagnosed with a serious chronic medical situation, and looking outside the door at the medical team. I thought to myself that I had gone from being one of us, healthcare providers, to being one of them, patients and families that your heart goes out to.
