Overview

If your household is like millions of others (22 million in the U.S. alone), you are on a journey. Like others on this journey, you probably feel ill-prepared, with no training, few skills, and a tentative heart for the challenges you face each day. If you are like millions of others, you are facing the stark reality of caregiving.

Author and experienced caregiver Shelly Beach has learned that caregiving is messy and costly--physically, emotionally, and financially--the hardest work you will probably ever have to do. And yet Shelly has learned through her own experience that caregiving, with all of its demands, can also be a gift that changes your heart and transforms your life.

This is the book that every caregiver needs. It offers practical advice, Web sites, phone numbers, and wisdom from experts in the fields of geriatrics and family counseling. Most importantly, Shelly says, this book is intended "to draw you into the Word and to sensitize you to the work of the Spirit of God in your life. To make caregiving simply a task is a distortion of its purpose; rather, it is a divine appointment, a redemptive encounter, and an act of worship."

Writing out of her own experience and passion, Shelly guides you on this difficult journey and reminds you that you are not alone. God will meet you where you are and bear you up every step of the way.
