The Heart of the Caregiver Series and Sample Chapters

Advance Praise

“A lot of how-to books have been written about caregiving. But as a long-time caregiver, I can say with certainty that it’s our relationships—with doctors, friends, and others going through the same kind of things—that help us make it through the tough times. And the most important relationship is the one we have with Jesus Christ. The Peaceful Caregiver isn’t a how-to caregiver book. It’s a how-to-find-peace-with-God caregiving book.” —Kathy Harris, author of the Christian novel Deadly Commitment and fellow caregiver

“Mary Tutterow brings enormous credibility and experience to address the frenetic heart of family caregivers. In The Peaceful Caregiver she gently leads fellow caregivers on a path she herself continues to walk—a path of trusting God with harsh realities. Clearly communicating God’s reassuring hand on our shoulders as we care for others, Mary helps us discover a deeper relationship with God in the midst of our journey as caregivers.” —Peter Rosenberger, caregiver for more than thirty years, author, and host of Hope for the Caregiver
