A Tapestry of Love: The Spirituality of Caregiving
A Tapestry of Love: The Spirituality of Caregiving is a resource for caregivers who often feel isolated and prone to exhaustion, loneliness, depression, anger, and resentment. Using Jesus' interaction with Mary and Martha as recorded in Scripture, A Tapestry of Love provides a framework for spiritual practices that nurtures the crucial work of caregivers, bolsters their relationship with care-receivers, and promotes intimacy with God. The book is written by Joe LaGuardia, pastor of Trinity Baptist Church in Conyers, and Daphne Reiley, a member of the pastoral care team at Sandy Springs Christian Church. Click here to learn more.
