Precious Lord Take My Hand Jul 19, 2008
This book (Precious Lord, Take My Hand)by Shelley Beach has left a visible mark on me as a caregiver for my aging parents. It voiced thoughts that I haven't addressed out loud and helped me to see that the emotions I feel are not my own but experienced by many caregivers including Shelley Beach - an author who has penned her emotional and physical experiences as a caregiver of Alzheimer parents to help others. I recommend this book for those caregivers dealing with Alzheimers illness and trying to understand it's mind altering devastation.
Encouragement for your heart! Jul 20, 2007
Shelly has a way of finding humor in even the struggles of life. This book will bring tears to your eyes while bringing laughter to your heart. Shelly excels at describing the painful reality of caregiving amidst the strength and hope received from the Lord. As a caregiver myself, I am encouraged by her writing. I highly recommend this book.
This book helps you find the Lord's hand! Jul 14, 2007
Shelly Beach has written a book so many of us need. Even after my grandmother and mother-in-law have passed away Shelly's book continues to help me sort out our feelings about the caregiving we shared with our family members. Shelly has a very practical and personal way of writing that helps you see God's hand in every facet of the joys, frustrations and sorrows of caring for a loved one. I have already bought two extra copies for friends who will undoubtedly find help and comfort as they face this journey with their parents. As a director for a small groups ministry in a large church I am also recommending this book for a support group. Sharon Carrns
Tears and Laughter Jul 13, 2007
Precious Lord, Take My Hand, a book of meditations written by Shelly Beach, is a must have book for caregivers. Based on her own experiences as a care giver for her father-in-law, father and mother, Shelly writes with humor and compassion. She doesn't sugarcoat the day-to-day struggles she faces, but shows how trusting God's promises gives her strength for the day she's in. Shelly continues to care for her elderly parents even today so she's not writing from the other side of the issue. She struggles, just as readers do, with the frustrations of caregiving. Because her struggle is present and real, her continued trust in God to provide what she lacks is a powerful example and encouragement to others.
