Writers Who Care
Our mothers faded into this land of elusive memory and we became their caregivers. It was in this journey we found ourselves ensconced with one another again. Faith had walked with her mother until death. Kenney was shocked to see her mother slip into the deep abyss; Beth and Terri felt helpless as their mother began her descent.
As we shared our lives and stories, our book was born. We penned each word with a prayer that our stories would offer hope and encouragement to those standing on the sidelines watching their loved one unravel with this mind-robbing disease.
Faith spent 30 years as a pastor’s wife and 18 years as a Special Education teacher. When her husband lost his battle to cancer in 2008, God was faithful to provide her with a new ministry. Her mother’s watchful care going through dementia was revealed to be her strongest act of service yet.
Faith’s unique, witty sense of humor and wisdom is a combination that makes her not only fun to be around, but also a good writer. She has walked hand in hand with those on addiction paths, those who have lost loved ones, those who have broken relationships, and promotes through her faith and trust that all things are possible through Jesus. She has been blessed with many grandchildren and resides in the Houston, Texas area.
