About the Book

When you hear the words “you only have two years to live,” you are made to pay attention. Facing this brevity of life, Claire realized how much of it had been experienced with Jesus by her side. He took her from a quiet, sheltered upbringing in England to a life that has spanned three continents. Simultaneously, Claire has seen his hand in her roles as wife, mum, and pediatric nurse. Her career specialized in palliative care nursing, focusing on making the best quality of life possible whilst living with a life-limiting illness. Little did Claire know that she, too, would be in the same boat.

Claire has been made to contemplate what is important and why relationships are at the core of her existence. She recognized how each member of her immediate family has been through their own harrowing escapes from death. Twice Claire found herself in the same situation. Entwined with these stories are lessons learned from the very patients Claire helped to care for and lessons of love, brightness, hope, and a future. Claire finds herself daily contemplating the same existence in hopes of mimicking even a little of what she has learned. Claire couldn’t but write it down and bring you Joy, Juice, and Jesus.
