A Doctor's Devotion

Xulon Press presents a devotional focused on living for others.

At the End of Your Life, Will You Remember What You Did for Yourself or for Someone Else?

Xulon Press presents a devotional focused on living for others.


Doctor Harry Holwerda shares his life story as a devotional in A Doctor’s Devotion: A Passion for Serving ($17.99, paperback, 9781545680759; $9.99, e-book, 9781630503185).  Drawing from his own experience serving indigenous peoples as well as soldiers, he hopes to inspire others to choose a life of service.


Holwerda began his career during the tumultuous ‘60s, volunteering to care for military personnel in Washington, D.C. during the Vietnam War.  His servant’s heart later took him to the jungles of Ecuador as a missionary and into his private medical practice.


“The opportunities, adventures and the delightful satisfaction of serving diverse peoples in need in many different situations and cultures [inspired me]. If I could, I would do it all over again,” said Holwerda.


Dr. Harry Holwerda is a graduate of the University of Michigan Medical School, served in the Air Force during the Vietnam War, and was in private practice for 35 years. He served Christian Reformed World Missions as a medical doctor in full-time mission at the beginning of his career and since retirement. He and his wife Joan raised four children and live in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
