She is a dynamic speaker who engages people in a personal way as she shares her faith and passion for Christ with proven and profound principles woven in the midst of a fascinating narrative from her varied experiences. She has become a “fixture” at Canterbury Retreat and Conference Center.

J. C., MD

This work will do that for your soul. Let your soul sponge up the daily wisdom. Read it and reap!”

The Rev. Nigel W D Mumford
Author of Hand to Hand: From Combat to Healing

“Dr. Sánchez writes from her heart. This is a wonderful devotional and encouragement for those of us in healthcare, and it comes at just the right time. We, the helpers, need the healing and hope that Christ alone can give. This book reminds us in a gentle but unyielding voice that we are to keep our eyes on the Cross! That is where our hope, and the hope of those we care for, can flourish.”

Ann Park, MD

“God has given Dr. Mari—wife, mother, and physician—the gifts of healing, wisdom, and creative expression. As healthcare professionals and caregivers, we will be blessed to start each day’s journey with a devotional written by her as inspired by God. Don’t start your day without it!”

Karolina Murphy, RN, LMHC
ICU nurse, Christian Counselor

“Dr. Wohlever has undertaken an ambitious project, covering the entire book of Luke in 120 daily segments. Since she is an experienced healthcare provider on the front lines of medicine, she can really relate the texts from Luke (to) the issues and problems we all face in medicine every day. She writes well and clearly with just the right balance between scholarship and a practical, down-to-earth focus. I am eagerly awaiting her volume 2, a study of Acts.”

D. Keller (healthcare professional; endorsement of kindle version on amazon)

“As a mental health counselor, I often ask God to help me be helpful to those He sends me. Walking with Jesus in Healthcare continues to give me the inspiration to focus on just that. Dr. Mari has done an incredible job of bringing the gospel of Luke, the Physician, into the world of healthcare today. She combines scripture reading, a brief discussion, prayer, and music with an invitation to listen for the message with your heart.”

Liz Pixley, LMHC
Ft. Walton Beach, FL

“As healthcare professionals that follow Christ, we find ourselves daily at the intersection of people’s lives and spiritual journeys. And it is right at this busy and overwhelming street corner that Dr. Amaryllis Sánchez Wohlever’s refreshing devotional meets us with a breath of fresh, Scripture-inspired air and sense of purpose on our journey.

Following the writings of Dr. Luke, Amaryllis beautifully weaves in poignant stories and reflections that focus our minds on the divine appointments brought our way by our Creator—as we touch the lives of His creation. As you take this journey with her, you will sense a friend alongside of you … sharing your struggles, lifting your spirits, reminding you of your true calling, and pointing you back toward your first love! Healthcare students, professionals, and their spouses are certain to be encouraged and inspired as they take this 120-day walk with Jesus in healthcare!”
