Reviews for "A Promise Kept Inspirational Guide"

"I am a group leader for the Care Givers Outreach ministry for our Methodist Church. We use this workbook to run a six week series every quarter for anyone that is interested in learning how to care for the care-giver. In today's society there are handbooks for every level of life from infancy to elderly, but nothing for caring for yourself while you care for others. Ms. Bandaries through her workbook has opened a dialogue that focuses on holistic self-care during the difficult times of care-giving. There is no area of one's life that is not impacted by caring for others. This workbook gives practical ideas to help sustain you, enrich your faith, and network." - Laura Evans

"This book is not only inspirational but also a practical and interactive guide to assist families in the caregiving journey. As a gerontologist, I recognize that religion and faith significantly impacts how a family cares for their loved one. This book recognizes that importance and offers opportunity for families to reflect and journal. I recommend this book to all traveling through the caregiving journey and for caregiving support groups." - A Dedicated Nurse
