  • Were Stronger Than We Look

    $12.99

    Caregiver, are you overwhelmed? Do you secretly have bouts of despair, bitterness, and even hopelessness?

    As a caregiver, you run the risk of disappearing. Your time goes overwhelmingly to the needs of your loved one. Your relationships get strained, and your challenges and anxieties are difficult to articulate. It’s easier to just keep your head down and do what must be done.

    What’s more, you probably didn’t sign up for this role or train for it. And yet here you are, reliving the trauma that got you here, providing support you didn’t know you had in you to give, struggling with fatigue, making critical, life-altering decisions, and yearning for the community you had that has changed or disappeared.

    Rich in stories and unflinchingly pragmatic, We’re Stronger than We Look is an invitation to look up and remember the life you’ve been given, the image of God that you bear, and the assurance that God loves you as much as you love the person entrusted to your care. This message is delivered by a caregiver who, while writing this helpful book, has cared for her paraplegic husband, who was suddenly disabled in a bicycling accident.

  • Called To Care Third Edition

    $32.00

    As nursing and healthcare continue to change, we need nurses who are committed both to a solid understanding of their profession and to caring well for patients and their families. Offering a historically and theologically grounded vision of the nurse’s call, this thoroughly revised third edition of a classic text includes practical features for educators, students, and practitioners.

    Nursing is a vocation: a calling from God to care for others. The role of the nurse originally grew out of a holistic Christian understanding of humans as created in the image of God. Yet as nursing and healthcare continue to change, the effects have proven disorienting to many. Now more than ever, we need nurses who are committed both to a solid understanding of their profession and to caring well for patients and their families. For over twenty years, Called to Care has served as a unique and essential resource for nurses. In this third edition Judith Allen Shelly and Arlene B. Miller, now joined by coauthor Kimberly H. Fenstermacher, present a definition for nursing based on a historically and theologically grounded vision of the nurse’s call: Nursing is a ministry of compassionate and restorative care for the whole person, in response to God’s grace, which aims to promote and foster optimum health (shalom) and bring comfort in suffering and death for anyone in need. Focusing on the features of the nursing metaparadigm-person, health, environment, and nursing-they provide a framework for understanding how the Christian faith relates to the many aspects of a nurse’s work, from theory to everyday practice. This new edition of Called to Care is thoroughly revised for today’s nurses, including updated examples and new content on topics such as cultural competency, palliative care, and the current state of healthcare and nursing education. Each chapter features learning objectives, discussion questions, case studies, and theological reflections from Scripture to help readers engage and apply the content. For educators, students, and practitioners throughout the field of nursing, this classic text continues to provide clarity and wisdom for living out their calling.
