Standing With Hope
The Three I's
Fear, Obligation, and Guilt
The New Book: Hope For The Caregiver
Caregivers struggle with the three I's:
- Loss of Independence
- Loss of Identity
"Medical insurance is not the issue. That's a skill you learn and move on ...and I can teach you. The vast majority of caregivers I meet don't struggle with insurance - it's ASSURANCE- they're frustrated, weary, and scared."
Has "worrying" ever accomplished anything for you? Caregivers spend a great deal of time worrying, but worrying is simply indulging yourself in the pain of things that have not ...and may not...happen.
Peppered throughout the Bible, God continually reminds individuals and groups to "not be afraid." He knows that as we face things in life, we are scared spitless. He doesn't mock our fear; He calms it with His presences. Then, with God's comfort and His love in our hearts, we can offer encouragement to others. And by helping them face their fears, we can, in turn, tackle our own challenges with courage, determination, and faith.

The Lord is the One who will go before you. He will be with you; He will not leave you or forsake you. Do not be afraid or discourage.
