What Others are Saying
As caregivers, we often feel isolated, but for me, reading and listening to Peter feels like a one-on-one encounter. It could be as intensely personal to you, too!
In a world hung up on trying to make sense out of hard times, Peter drives the point home that “we don’t have to understand—God understands, and that’s enough.” This is THE book for caregivers, written by one with scars and immense credibility.
With tenacity, tenderness, and humor Peter Rosenberger brings hope to those who find themselves in the overwhelming and sometimes lonely role of caregiver.
