It is well with my Soul, is a thoughtful, comprehensive book on spiritual care for the dying. Dr. White lifts his knowledge and prose with his innate and acquired humility, kindness and compassion. I have worked with him for years and appreciate his open heart and generous nature. How fortunate that he took time to give us his wisdom as he has done so many times for my patients at the bedside.Kathleen Murphy BS MD FAAHPM, Palliative Care Consult Service Assistant Professor, Oakland University William Beaumont Medical School

At times it seems easier to deal with the physical aspects of death and dying rather than confronting the spiritual health of a hospice patient. Dr. White has given me a new tool box to provide spiritual comfort to someone facing death and to their family and caregivers. Every hospice clinician should carry a copy of, “It is well with my soul” in their medical bag and every caregiver should have a copy on their nightstand to read and reflect on each day.Fran Adamski , RN
