Debbie Duncan knows all too much about the need for resilience. She and her husband Malcolm, and her children, have all had to deal with prolonged ill health, as well as episodes of acute health crisis. Two family members have died. As a pastor's wife and a working mum she copes with emergencies large and small on a daily basis. So what makes you strong when you have no strength? Drawing on her personal experience as a nurse and a teacher, Debbie has considerable insight into what constitutes resilience: the ability to cope, to stay on course, to bounce back. In this helpful new book she considers what is required for physical, mental and spiritual durability, interweaving biblical teaching, prayers, with personal anecdote, and sound advice.
Debbie Duncan is an advanced nurse practitioner and lecturer in nursing; a church leader and minister's wife. She is married to Malcolm and has a busy family life that includes being mum to their four grown up children. The family is ever growing with weddings and engagements! She is an author of over 50 professional nursing journal articles and two text books in nursing. She co- author of Life lines with Cathy Le Feuvre- a novel of emails between friends. She has also written 'The art of daily resilience' and 'Brave', courage through the seasons of our lives published by Lion Monarch. Debbie writes on a range of issues that often reflect her professional life and personal faith. With an MSC in strategic leadership and expert practice, lead nurse in the NHS for many years and church leader she is in a good position to write Gifted.
