WINNER OF "BECAUSE YOU CARE"
"BECAUSE YOU CARE: SPIRITUAL ENCOURAGEMENT FOR CAREGIVERS"
I saw this book on a friend's FB page. "Because You Care: Spiritual Encouragement for Caregivers" and wanted to find out more about it. I've been a caregiver all my life and I can use all the encouragement I can get. My mother had Rheumatoid Arthritis and I helped care for her as a child. I still take care of my adult disabled daughter as well as my dad for the ten years before he passed away. I think I have pretty good creditials as a caregiver.
I wanted to know how the authors faced their life as caregivers. Twila Belk and Cec Murphey are the co-authors for this book. Both of these authors are prolific writers and speakers. How do they do it. How do they manage to keep thier own sanity and also have a productive life of thier own? I hope to have an interview with Twila to add to this post. I'm sure she has a lot to add for other caregivers who are also trying to be writers.
This is a little book, but it packs a whollop. Stories of trials and faith from both Twila and Cec. There are beautiful and tranquil photographs by Betty Fletcher. This book would make a great gift to someone who has the job of being a caregiver to someone they love. It is also nice just to buy for yourself if you are the caregiver and need a little boost.
