“What did God say about healing? What did He say about sickness and where did He put Himself in the fight against disease? Where did sickness come from? Did God bring sickness if He was almighty and reigned?” If you have ever asked yourself any of these questions, then Helen Phillips’ spiritual memoir, Fly with Me: A True Story of Healing from Multiple Sclerosis is for you. In this relatively short volume of only 150 pages, Phillips shares a lifetime of experience with the reader, as she shares her experiences that range from farming in the Rhodesian lowlands to becoming a spiritual healer and motivational speaker first in Johannesburg, and later in the southern suburbs of Cape Town, where she still lives with her fourth husband, Bill Phillips. Short as the book may be, it nevertheless packs an extremely powerful punch and bears witness throughout not only of her battle against what many have experienced as a devastating illness, but also of her faith in an all-powerful God. Being struck down by MS when she was only 27 years old and “slim as a whistle, fit as a fiddle,” her incorrigible spirit and her strong commitment to the Christian faith buoyed her up and enabled her to endure not only the physical suffering that is attendant upon such a disease, but also two divorces and the death of a former husband. Phillips is no stranger to financial failure either, and has endured business highs and lows, as well as the alcoholism of her first husband, which helped drive her into the arms of a bounder whom she married not only once, but twice. Above all, however, Fly with Me is Helen Phillips’ personal witness to her growing faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as her Redeemer. The pages are blessed with the restorative power of the Holy Spirit’s working in and through her life, making the tone of the whole uplifting and encouraging. However, Phillips in no ways minces her words—she tells it like it is, so don’t expect to be required to wallow in a pity fest. She has short shrift for those MS sufferers who wish others to climb aboard such a wagon, urging them not to expect to be treated with kid gloves by even their nearest and dearest. Basically, Phillips is a fighter, and she expects that of others too. The tools that she has used to recover from attacks of the dreaded disease she readily shares with her audience, including, most notably, faith, the importance of an entrenched exercise and nutrition regimen, prayer, and God’s Word. Phillips concludes Fly with Me with her tried and true recommended diet for MS sufferers, as well as a spiritual healing recipe and two full-color topographical maps of Africa and Rhodesia as they were in 1976. Fly with Me: A True Story of Healing from Multiple Sclerosis is a faith-based book that is filled with hopeful and inspiring messages from the Bible. In addition to appealing to those who suffer from MS, the work is ideal reading for any who have had experience of a family member or friend with a crippling disease. A copy of the text should form part of all libraries and resource collections of faith-based bodies, no matter where in the world they might be.
