Courage for Caregivers: Sustenance for the Journey
IN COMPANY WITH HENRI J.M. NOUWEN
Drawing on the writings and wisdom of Henri J. M. Nouwen’s themes of caregiving, Marjorie J. Thompson offers a vulnerable exploration of caregiving intertwined both with her own many years of intimate caregiving of family members and collected stories of caregivers in varied settings and stages of life. While not shying away from the demanding physical, emotional and spiritual challenges of caregiving, Courage for Caregivers also celebrates the gifts of caregiving grounded in the belovedness both caregiver and care receiver share in God’s eyes. Practical leader guides and resources make Courage for Caregivers a tool that moves smoothly from individual encouragement to group and congregational ministry to develop support for the universal experience of caregiving.

“Caregivers are my heroes, the undervalued souls who selflessly dispense grace and compassion. And Henri Nouwen is the patron saint of caregivers, for he voluntarily left a prestigious career to care for one severely disabled individual—and to his surprise found himself the chief beneficiary of this mutual exchange. The wisdom he learned in the process informs us all, caregivers and care receivers alike.”
—Philip Yancey, best-selling author with 15 million books in print
