Whether you're newly stepping into caregiving, helping from a distance or you've been caring for someone for quite a while, you will find spiritual nourishment and practical guidance on every page.

You will find yourself and your journey transforming into something beautiful that you can carry with you for the rest of your life.

Meet the Authors

Hi, we're Kelly Johnson & Deb Kelsey-Davis, co-authors of The Caregiver's Companion and co-founders of Nourish for Caregivers.

Our passion for creating this guided journal came from our own personal caregiving experiences. We know, without our faith, we would never have been able to see our blessings or learn how to accept and embrace our circumstances.

Knowing Christ and trusting God has provided a bedrock of sustaining graces and moments of joy.  And we want the same for you.

Thank you for letting us join you on your caregiving journey.  You are not alone. You are loved and beloved. Your hands are holy, the caring you do is holy.

May the hope, love, and peace that alone comes from Christ fill you and sustain you.

Stay nourished,

Kelly and Deb
