Every mother is a caregiver. Sometimes however, we go into seasons where others have extended needs that take us to the end of ourselves and our means. Today, Lee talks to Sarah, Forgrave, the author of Prayers of Hope for Caregivers. Sarah helps give words to those of us who have run out of words about our situation but still want to pray to the God who sees, knows and provides. Whether you are in a season of extended caregiving or not, you don’t want to miss this episode filled with words and tips for surviving and thriving.

This is the first year I have been in a Moms in Prayer group. I enjoy the prayers and the forms we follow. I was always a christian mom, and I am married in the Lutheran church, and have baptized my children. But actually going to a group to pray for my children has grown my faith and helps me center my life. I also currently care for my mother who has memory concerns. She lives in our family room. My husband has been open to this and has been helpful as he is now working from home to help care for my mom. My daughters are 18 and 27. My younger daughter has a need to be cared for, as she is slowly taking her steps to become independent, life seems to be more challenging for her the closer she gets to graduating from high school. Some scriptures I have had to reflect on are Romans 8:28, Jeremiah 29:11, Joshua 24:15. I like to open my bible and study the word of God. Finding how to let God cover me in these difficult caregiving times I thank God even in my circumstances. He has our plan, better than we could ever plan for you! Thank you to my husband who has been my relief and help during this time.
