As My Parents Age by Cynthia Ruchti - Reviewed

Monday, October 16, 2017

                                                           About the book:

For most of us it is not the “ifs” but the “whens”: when I notice the first signs; when we mourn the role reversal; when my children need me too; or when I don’t know how to pray. Those are just a few of the fifty-two reflections on the changes, challenges, and blessings of loving your parent as they grow older. Their lives – and yours – begin to change. Knowing that you are not alone, that others have been where you are, is encouraging and uplifting. This is not a how-to, but a me-too, as you see yourself and your own situation lived out in the stories of others.

About Cynthia Ruchti:

Drawing from 33 years of on-air radio ministry, Cynthia Ruchti tells stories of hope-that-glows-in-the-dark through her novels and novellas, nonfiction books and devotionals, and speaking for women's and writers' events. Her books have been recognized by Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Awards, Selah Awards, the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence, Christian Retailing's BEST Awards, and Christy and Carol Award nominations, among other honors, including a Family Fiction Readers' Choice Award. She and her plot-tweaking husband live in Pittsville, Wisconsin, not far from their three children and five grandchildren.

My Thoughts:

Sadly our roles reverse as our parents get older, and this devotional style book packs quite a punch in the most encouraging way. As I read the book I realized what a precious gift this book will be as my parents continue to age, it will be balm for my heart as it breaks during this process.

Whether you are seeing your parents declining health or grandparents you will find such encouragement between the pages of this little book.

I received a copy of this book compliments of the publisher in exchange for an honest review, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

You can purchase a copy here: AMAZON
