Grateful for Grace: Reflections on Caring for Mom (Paperback)
Are you currently caring for someone or seriously considering it? Do you desire to be the one to take on this act of kindness, but wonder if you have what it takes? Such a challenge can be quite rewarding, with each day presenting unknowns resulting in unrehearsed outcomes. Grateful for Grace is a collection of anecdotes and reflections, shared by the author to encourage and inspire the caregiver. It serves as a reminder that the endeavor of caregiving is not a solo act, but rather a selfless act of love, requiring an intentional dependency on God. In all things, one must hasten to seek God's guidance and direction for wisdom throughout the journey. Donna Olivia, a native Floridian, is a retired teacher with over 35 years of experience in education, having taught dance, gifted education, and reading. She has also served over 30 years collectively as a liturgical dancer, working with several dance ministries, and is impassioned about using her artistic gifts to glorify God. She feels that working with children, by teaching through the arts, is her calling from God. Olivia resides in Georgia with her husband, Theodore, son Joseph, and mother, Ms. Grace.
