About the Author

James Powell was the first pediatric chaplain at Methodist Children�s Hospital in Lubbock, Texas, where he provided spiritual care to the children, their parents and families, and the hospital staff.
He has worked with children and adolescents as chaplain in a state hospital, campus director in a children�s home, pastoral counselor in private practice, and as youth minister in a number of parish settings. His own diagnosis with a chronic disease as a child shaped his personal identity, his career path, and his approach to working with those in vulnerable medical situations. He and his wife, Dianne, have been married 44 years. They have two grown sons and two grandsons and live in Lubbock.
