A Tapestry of Love: The Spirituality of Caregiving is a resource for caregivers who often feel isolated and prone to exhaustion, loneliness, depression, anger, and resentment.
Using Jesus’ interaction with Mary and Martha as based on Scripture, A Tapestry of Love provides a framework for spiritual formation that nurtures the crucial work of caregivers, bolsters their relationship with care-receivers, and promotes intimacy with God. This narrative loom weaves a tapestry of practices that garners a strong and supportive, creative and vibrant, ancient and time-tested — yet relevant — spiritual path for the caregiving journey.
The book is a result of working with caregivers, care receivers, and communities of faith for nearly two decades.
