A while back I was involved in a minor way with the publishing of this short but powerful book by one of the spiritual masters of the 20th century.

Click here to purchase a copy for someone you know, perhaps yourself, as they travel the road as a caregiver.

Here is a summary of this beautiful new book:

If you provide care for another person, whether you are a family member or a professional caregiver, you know that caregiving is hard, sometimes unappreciated work. But have you ever considered that it isn’t easy to be the care receiver?

“Caregiving is . . . about forming a relationship with another whom we might never have chosen to know. It is about doing all we do practically with the intention of growing into a relationship of respect, listening, presence, and truthfulness,” Henri Nouwen writes.

Nouwen shares wisdom from his heart about the transformational power of relationship in the unique bond between caregiver and care receiver. Interlacing stories from his own life and the lives of friends, this world-renowned writer and pastor communicates warmth and compassion as he shares insights on what it means to be a caregiver and to be cared for.

Whether you have chosen to be a caregiver or were thrust into the role by circumstances, you’ll see how important and life-changing your work is. You’ll also be encouraged by this beloved author who has been called one of the most influential spiritual writers of our time.
