No one prepared us for this? Yet, here we are, struggling to navigate the parent/child role reversal. "30 Days of Hope for Parenting Your Parents" combines Scripture, biblical insight, personal experience, reflection questions, and prayer prompts to provide spiritual and practical encouragement to those caring for aging or ill parents.

About the Book

I was thoroughly unprepared to parent my parents. This season of life includes far more than dealing with doctors and getting my folks a little help at home. For instance, how do I help my father grieve his loss of independence and physical strength? How do I handle my own anger and pain when my mother with dementia wounds me repeatedly with her words? And how can I honor my parents even while I begin to take control of their lives?

30 Days of Hope for Parenting Your Parents explores God’s Word to find hope and encouragement for the wide range of physical, emotional, relational, and spiritual challenges the adult child caregiver may experience. Each of the 30 devotions – which can also serve as a guide for a daily quiet time – includes a Scripture passage, a real-life illustration, biblical commentary/application, and questions for reflection. Each day also includes two brief prayers – one for the reader to pray for herself and one for the reader to pray for her parent.

God may not change our circumstances, but He freely pours out everything we need in the midst of them. Parenting Your Parents points the reader to the abundant grace and strength of our faithful God.
