If ever there was a group that needed splashes of joy in its otherwise difficult life it’s that dedicated group known as “caregivers”! I know because I’m a member. My almost 89-year-old mom lives with us, and it’s a 24-7 job. Sometimes tedious, sometimes stressful, sometimes exhausting, this job calls for mini-breaks on a regular basis. Authors Annetta Dellinger and Karen Boerger have graciously provided those breaks in the form of their new book, JOY-spirations for Caregivers. Complete with easy-to-read segments, encouragement for busy caregivers, and inspiration for daily care-giving challenges, this excellent resource is a literal Godsend for people like me. I highly recommend it! Check it out at www.annettadellinger.com or www.karenboerger.com.

    I would love to win this book! My son is a certified nurses aide and is a care giver in a rehabilitation center for the elderly. Matthew is a gentle soul who takes times with these residents and instead of taking breaks, sits with them and listens to their lifetime stories. Bless all you care givers no matter whom you care for…Robin Shope

    From time to time I care for my handicapped niece for a day to give her mother a break. After one day, I am exhausted! I can only imagine the burden full time caregivers experience. Still, there are moments of joy. I really want this book for my sister-in-law, who has carried a heavy burden for 35 years.
