Nourish for CaregiversTM and Shalom World TVTM announce a groundbreaking new television series to minister to the 500 million people globally who are family caregivers.

Be Nourished shows the audience how the love and mercy of Christ is present in the caregiving journey.
Be Nourished offers hope and encouragement to family caregivers. Hosted by Graziano Marcheschi, whose experience includes 20 plus years as Director of the Lay Ministry at the Archdiocese of Chicago, and the Nourish for Caregivers co-founders, Deb Kelsey-Davis, RN and Kelly Johnson. Together, the three hosts explore issues in caregiving, to provide practical, emotional and spiritual support to the viewing audience. View the Be Nourished promo video here.
“From the outset, the goal of Be Nourished,” stated Deb Kelsey-Davis, co-founder of Nourish for Caregivers, “aligns with our desire to bring support to caregivers, and in Shalom World we found a partner who could deliver this hope in a truly unique and life-giving manner.”
“Caregivers often feel alone and isolated; but, Be Nourished has the feel of sitting down with a good friend and sharing the ups and downs and the joys and disappointments of the caregiving journey,” added Kelly Johnson, co-founder of Nourish for Caregivers.
Viewers will see, in the prayers, interview video stories, and insights of Marcheschi, Kelsey-Davis, and Johnson, that they are not alone. “The ministry and mission of Nourish for Caregivers immediately resonated with us here at Shalom World,” stated Jerry George, Director of Programming. “Be Nourished is uplifting and enriching, and through Shalom World, caregivers can deepen their walk with Christ, and continue to reach God even during times of transition and change. As with much of our programming, Be Nourished provides hope and blessings.”
