Reviews - What do customers think about May I Walk You Home?: Courage and Comfort for Caregivers of the Very Ill?

As comforting as a cup of tea on a rainy day  May 29, 2008
This book was an easy and comforting read. I can highly recommend it if you are caring for someone who is terminally ill. It gives a very gracious and encouraging picture of the final months and days. The analogy of "May I walk you home" will stay with you long after you put the book down. It's also a great read for those who support the caregivers who support the ill.
May I Walk You Home  Mar 10, 2008
A wonderfully comforting and uplifting book for caregivers and
those they care for.
A good "companion" for those companioning terminal loved ones.  Oct 25, 2007
I chose this book for two reasons: Joyce Rupp is my favorite author of spiritual materials, and I was in the process of walking my daughter home during her final year of life.

The stories and prayers helped me feel that I was not alone in this journey. That others had experienced it before and lived through it to tell the tale gave me strength to do the same. I know that my daughter had a better quality of life through this process of dying from cancer and being in home hospice care because I was better prepared to companion her.

I highly recommend this book to clergy, family members, and other caregivers. It is full of 'hope' as well as practical suggestions gleaned from others' experiences of companioning the dying.
A gentle passage to the other side of eternal life  Feb 12, 2007
Author relates how she comforted terminally ill people with compassion and love. Prayers for each situation are excellent.
More than Comfort  Sep 5, 2006
The prayers and Meditations were so helpful that I purchased extra for those I knew were experiencing this journey. The price enabled me to afford this gift.
