Securing the Strength to Serve (Caring for the Caregiver)

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Tomorrow begins the first day of the five day series about ensuring you, or those caregivers close to you, are receiving the necessary support and encouragement to continue ministering to those they love.  Monday’s post will cover the spiritual side of this issue.  I look forward to having some interaction with my readers.

If you know someone who may benefit from this series, please send them to my blog at Oneofhisbranches.com

Much of my blog revolves around my metamorphosis from stay-at-home-mom to care-giving daughter.  Just as being a mother brought enormous growth in my life, the role of caregiver is proving to do the same.  It is one of the most demanding of God’s callings on my life.  In order to remain stable, strong and secure in that role, several aspects of our lives need to be attended to on a regular basis.

Beginning November 3rd, I will examine 5 areas I have pinpointed in my own life that require routine maintenance.  Neglecting these will propel you toward burnout.  These areas are:

Spiritual – Probably the most critical area (Monday, November 3rd )

Physical – Caring for our bodies (Tuesday, November 4th)

Financial – Stress free or Stress-ful (Wednesday, November 5th)

Social – Making time to get away (Thursday, November 6th)

Mental – Day to day emotional outlook (Friday, November 7th)

Please join me for this 5 day series as I hope to encourage you from the lessons I have learned and continue to learn from my own experiences in the past year.
