Much of the physical pain and medical problems can be traced back to emotional and spiritual roots.

A day in her family practice medical office in Bessemer, Alabama, allows Dr. Yvette Hickman to provide counseling and encouragement to patients on a one-on-one basis. With the publication of her new book, “Fountain in the Valley” (published by WestBow Press), Hickman hopes to reach the general public with a message of hope and healing.

“Patients who come to me are wounded and hurt, and not just in physical pain,” Hickman says. “Much of the physical pain and medical problems can be traced back to emotional and spiritual roots.”

A Christian first, Hickman puts her faith in God on display in “Fountain in the Valley.” She instructs readers in how to overcome negative situations and not get stuck in the valleys of depression and despair. Whether they are financial setbacks, divorce, illness or the death of a loved one, her book is a guide on how to be successful in tumultuous circumstances.

“Scripture says that we overcome by the Blood of The Lamb, the word of our testimony and not loving our life to the death,” Hickman says. “The Fountain in the Valley is Jesus. We are over comers through Him.”

Hickman includes her own account of candid and transparent testimonies from her own life and ministry and those that have been shared with her by patients.
