My Parents, My Children

Cecil Murphey

$45.99

Paperback
Well-known Christian writer Cecil Murphey offers practical advice & spiritual guidance to those who care for both school-age children & aging parents at the same time. He provides reflections & stories from his counseling experience to illuminate some of the challenges facing those who respond to the physical & emotional needs of these widely differing age groups. Each devotional begins with a descriptive snapshot of a difficult or trying moment common to caregivers, & ends with a prayer & an appropriate biblical passage. "Some days caregivers' spirits feel drained & their energy lags ... & yet they persevere. They have doubts about their competence, their purpose, & their limitations. And yet they persevere. They feel cut off from the rest of the world & unappreciated. And yet they persevere. They have refused to listen to easy answers about 'putting him somewhere.' They endure the financial hardships, the lack of social companionship. On bad days they long for freedom--just to come & go from the house at will. Sometimes they cry & there is no one to hear ... yet they persevere. They do it because they have chosen to care. That choice has made the difference. It becomes their badge of courage & the strength that takes them over the bad times." --From My Parents, My Children.
