Author: Gigi Devine Murfitt

ISBN: 978-1-934626-09-2

From the Back Cover: Caregivers' Devotions to Go is for moms, grandmothers, and adult children and many others given the charge of caring for another person. it offers encouragement for a difficult task and gives both professional and family caregivers a breath of fresh air to continue the assignment god has given them.

My take on this book:  As a nurse and one who is a caregiver in many capacities, this book is a wonderful tool. It is Biblical, inspirational, and encouraging. So many times the caregivers do not care for themselves, they don't sleep, they don't eat, and most of all they don't take even a moment to renew their spirits.

That is not what God had planned for those he calls to be the caregiver. This tiny book gives great stories and verses that encourage but also teach us how to serve God well as the caregiver He wants us to be. Caregivers are not alone, they are a chosen group that have been blessed with a serving heart. God wants them to be rested, healthy, and joyful. This purse size book offers the tools and the information a caregiver needs to care for themselves so they are better equipped to care for others.

This book makes a great gift for someone you know who is a caregiver in whatever capacity or situation they are in. It fits into a pocket or purse, is easy to read in short spurts, and offers activities and thought provoking ideas to enrich the life of a caregiver. This book is part of the  Women's Devotions to Go Series and will bless those who read it.
