Lebanon’s Peggy Holt releases ‘Healing for the Heart’

Peggy Holt, author of "Healing from the Heart"Longtime central Pennsylvania resident Peggy Holt has been a Spanish and English teacher for
13 years, most recently in Lebanon. Now, she can add another title to her resume: author.

Holt, 42, recently released “Healing for the Heart,” a Bible-based book that offers daily readings and encouragement for those suffering from chronic illnesses.

“In a severe or long-term illness, sometimes the physical symptoms are easiest to deal with,” Holt writes in an email. “Greater challenges can come internally — from the mental and emotional strain resulting from the illness. ”

Holt underwent four years of treatment for chronic Lyme disease, giving her first-hand experience with what she describes as the “effect of illness on the human spirit.” “I realized how difficult and discouraging a prolonged illness can be,” she writes. “I also learned how difficult it can sometimes be to find the help one seeks.”

“Healing for the Heart” was published in May 2012. For details, visit westbowpress.com or healing4theheart.com.
