In a world hung up on trying to make sense out of hard times, Peter drives the point home that "we don't have to understand God understands, and that's enough." This is THE book for caregivers, written by one with scars and immense credibility.
JEFF FOXWORTHY, Comedian, Author, Television Host
Written by one who has "been there and done that," Peter offers caregivers practical advice for everyday living. This book is an important resource for caregivers and for those who care for the caregivers.

Peter is authentic in his understanding and awareness when he writes about caregiving he knows the journey intimately. He is also theologically wise in the midst...when he says,"we are stewards not owners."

None of us ever plan to be in a position like Peter, but it happens. When I was helping to care for a stroke-ridden father for many years, I wish I had had this book to lean upon!

Thank you so much Peter for writing this encouraging helpful book. It has changed my life. I am on a new road physically, mentally and spiritually with more peace and joy in my life.
May you find help and encouragement, as well.
Update: I just finished the book. As a Caregiver I've had moments where I needed the wisdom and plain common sense the author's learned over the last 30 years of caring for his own wife. I am grateful that he put it down on paper.
Peter recommends attending/having 2 support groups. I was blessed to learn about a Closed Group on Facebook called Memory People (founded by Rick Phelps who was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease in June of 2010 at the age of 57), while reading a review on Amazon. I highly recommend them, as well.
