Quick Overview

A journey through chronic illness
In 1999 Helen Warwick suffered a virus that left her with myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). Through the difficult years that followed, she learnt how to live a very different life – one with little energy, low times and disappointments – but a life that has also been an exciting journey with God. Creating Gardens in the Desert is an honest and thoroughly inspirational personal account. It offers ideas for those going through tough times and helps create an environment where seeds can grow in the barren land of chronic illness.

Inspirational Review by C.J Woodman (Amazon, 2011)
Star Rating
I bought Helen's book after hearing her talk on the subject at Burrswood. I found it so inspirational it has carried me through a long journey with chronic illness. As an artist I have found that the creative exercises have helped me immensely to cope with depression, fatigue, grief and pacing. Coping with the grief I suffered from the loss of my old life was greatly enhanced by Helen's sensitivity and use of scripture, lifting my spirit when I desperately needed it. Using her visualisation techniques I have found a God-send in those dark moments.
The symbolism of the garden proved extremely helpful in making me rethink my life and face the future with hope. I would highly recommend it to anyone suffering serious illness or loss. (Posted on 14/06/2013)
An informative book to help others on the healing journey Review by Hannah Clifton (Amazon, 2010)
Star Rating
I met Helen Warwick, and was introduced to her very helpful book, when I was bedbound with severe CFS/ME. She writes with great insight and understanding as she takes the reader on a journey of inner healing, which resulted in her physical healing from CFS/ME. It is a readable, honest and personal account of her spiritual and emotional journey designed to assist others. Her brave account is both inspiring and challenging. It is full of support, encouragement and ideas for other sufferers who may be willing to 'look within'. Helen is a Christian but the book would be of interest and useful for both Christian and non Christians dealing with this difficult illness. (Posted on 14/06/2013)
A great guide for anyone trying to recover from ME or similar problem Review by Derek Chapman (Amazon, UK 2009)
Star Rating
Helen Warwick describes how she suffered from ME for seven years but happily found her way to a full recovery. During this time she kept a diary which enabled her to write this fascinating book covering her feelings during those years and the means by which she gradually regained full health. She writes fluently and is an easy read. This book would really help anyone suffering from ME or similar problem as the author offers authorative support and guidance. (Posted on 14/06/2013)
