Every once in a while we come across a resource that has the potential to transform the lives of people involved with Connection Ministries. This is one of those books; The heart of the Caregiver by Mary Tutterow. Actually, it is a biblical course of study for caregivers as individuals or small groups. This can also be a great resource for pastors ministering with members of their church that are caregivers.
Mary and her husband Winn have an adult daughter, Mary Addison, with intellectual and physical disabilities. Mary writes; “I wrote The Heart of the Caregiver during some of our most difficult years. I began teaching the content to small groups as an excuse to have other caregivers to share with. Only those who have experienced being a caregiver themselves seemed to fully understand. It is now my joy to help other frazzled caregivers find beautiful transformation in the caregiving process – for themselves, their families and the people they care for.”
