For the Love of God and Family: Finding Joy while Caregiving
Caregiving is the most humbling yet rewarding of all callings if you go into it with your eyes wide open. Like all life-altering events, it requires research and support from both professionals and those in your circle who have already grown into this role.
For the Love of God and Family is intended to draw you into the reality of what God has chosen to bless you with during this chapter in your life. Boy, the idea of this as a blessing from God just seems wrong! Yet you will see how approaching this time in your life with a complete sense of what your role is and who your care receiver is in this new relationship will help you come alongside your loved one with understanding and compassion. Your heart will forever be tender toward this season in your loved one’s life.
This book is all about jump-starting this journey by helping you find the confidence and courage to step out and give yourself the freedom to find your joy and give your care receiver permission to feel his or her own joy. That, in its own right, is a God-given blessing beyond anything you have ever experienced. For the Love of God and Family will give you the tools you need to guard your heart and protect that joy while living in this precious season of life. You will see where it will be necessary to console yourself to flexibility toward ever-changing challenges.
