Joy does not mean we do not hurt;
it simply means that even through
the pain we remain hopeful.
After thirty-years in higher education, Dr. Maribel Roman was obliged to end her full time teaching and program development career due to medical conditions. Hence, she decided to write her book that shares her story and that of courageous individuals that live in constant pain but yet embrace their lives joyfully.
This powerful book is a must-read for helping people transition from pain to a fulfilling and joyful life. Joy in the Midst of Pain is a book filled with great information and practical strategies inspiring readers to find their inner joy despite the physical or emotional pain. Maribel is truly an inspiration sharing from her heart, soul, mind and spirit.

Joy in the Midst of Pain canvases the diversity of the pain experience frankly and compassionately. These candid testimonies and the ‘pain warriors’ sharing the most intimate details of their experiences was raw and vulnerable. I was stunned by how many times I thought, “this happened to me as well!” The stories are an inspiration to everyone suffering from pain. I definitely recommend this book to anyone wanting an inside look at re-evaluating their pain and processing it to bring more joy into your life.

I wish everyone suffering from physical pain would read this book! Whoever does and takes it to heart will be much more likely to live a joyful life. Maribel has packed so much information on nutrition, physical movement and emotional health but yet allows the stories of these pain warriors to shine through. I will definitely recommend this book to my patients.
