Deborah Barr, author of Grace for the Unexpected Journey: A 60-Day Devotional for Alzheimer’s and Other Dementia Caregivers, says the caregiver can sometimes face spiritual and practical challenges others do not face.
Barr had the caregiver in mind as she wrote this devotional. Each day’s devotion starts with a passage of scripture, followed by a few thoughts by Barr. She then asks a couple questions related to the scripture and how they apply to you. There is a journal section with blank lined writing space for you to record your own journey as a caregiver, or anything else you want.
Each day Barr focuses on a different topic, with titles such as Why?, Irritations, Cherish What Remains, What About Me?, The Power of Music, Feeling Guilty, Gratitude, Caregiver Depression, Bitter or Better?, Live in Peace, The Loss of “Us”, and Silver Lining.
This is a quality hardback book put out by Moody Publishers, suitable as a gift for someone faced with the overwhelming task of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia.
