    Good medicine for a caregiver's heart!

    Carmen Leal understands that even the most loving, committed caregiver experiences a sense of isolation and exhaustion. The Twenty-Third Psalm for Caregivers reflects her sense of empathy. She has walked in those shoes, and writes: 'A caregiver's job often seems thankless as we bathe, feed, comfort, fight battles, cut through red tape, and give direction. I'm sure our heavenly Father, our Caregiver, often feels His job is thankless as He cares for us.' Fifteen stories represent fifteen distinct facets of God's own character as He lovingly and gently shepherds us, including The Shepherd Who Cares...The Shepherd Who Directs...The Shepherd of Peace...and The Shepherd Who Heals. Carmen shares stories of her own caregiving experience, as well as the experiences of others who have walked this long, tiring road. Through it all, she weaves a golden thread of hope and healing. For an inspiring introduction to the book, view this Flash movie: http://thetwentythirdpsalm.com/movie This is book 1 of an exciting new series by Carmen Leal. Beautifully designed and small enough to slip inside a purse or briefcase, it's inspirational reading at its best. Even for those who are not living the life of a caregiver, The Twenty-Third Psalm for Caregivers offers a beautiful glimpse into God's heart, and how completely and personally He loves us all. ~Bonnie Bruno~

    Support and Encouragement for Caregivers

    What better place for caregivers to find support and encouragement than in the Shepherd of 'rest, peace, hope, patience, courage, friends, protection, blessings and joy who cares, provides, directs, comforts, heals and loves' (from the chapter titles). The gift-book format, lovely illustrations, poignant stories and well-chosen quotes make this a book caregivers will treasure.

    a beautiful book

    Understanding the power of telling a story, with this book Carmen Leal reaches out to help caregivers. She has written dozens of caregivers' stories simply and elegantly, and has added inspiring quotes throughout. Not only that, it is a lovely book to hold, with excellent binding and thick, smooth pages. It makes a beautiful gift.

    Encouraging the caregiver

    As I read Carmen Leal¿s study of Psalm 23, I thought of Psalm 142:4: ¿Look to my right and see; no one is concerned for me.¿ That verse describes the caregiver who feels forgotten, lonely and tired--the very one who needs the encouragement Carmen offers in a special look at the Shepherd Psalm. As a gift book, it will wordlessly speak your love and concern. Of, if you¿re the caregiver, stretch out its reading so that you can mediate on each way the Shepherd wants to love you.
