An Imperfect Caregiver's Journey

Frequently, I concealed from those I loved that I didn’t believe I had the strength to carry on one more day. To my own surprise, somehow I did. Additionally, I had to confront my own lingering fears and doubts about my relationship with God or rather, his relationship with me.

I had much to learn and made many mistakes along the way. Yet, throughout our remaining time together I discovered an even deeper, more fulfilling love that forever changed my understanding of purpose, commitment, and gratitude for God’s love. 

I also came to understand that my experiences were not entirely unique. Whatever the events or the challenges we encounter, we are all on a path that includes both shared experiences and individual growth. 

This is simply my story, 
An Imperfect Caregiver’s Journey.

Readers Say:


"Whether one has gone through similar experiences, or has a family member or friend who is going through being a caregiver, this book provides a guide to lead one confidently and safely ahead.


Your book brings back so many emotional memories … all the steps my mother and I blindly took trying to wade thru the overwhelming decisions facing us. Everything happened so suddenly and so unexpectedly. This book would have given us a road map of how to wade thru the logistics with confidence and an understanding of common emotions in making these decisions .... worry, guilt, feeling of helplessness of not knowing how to proceed, not knowing where to get correct information, and with questioning every decision.


Love the format… the stepping-stones, the underlying framework and foundation of faith during this difficult time…


I’m so grateful you shared this beautiful treasure… It will be a blessing to everyone who reads it. It will provide a beacon of light leading one through the journey of making so many difficult decisions for the care of a loved one."

-Jan, ARC reader
