Caregiver’s Journey Reinforces Faith in God’s Presence
Caring for an ailing parent is a challenge many of us will face. For 22 months, Lisa Roseman devoted herself to caring for her dying mother. As she learned to navigate her new life as a sole caregiver, Roseman battled depression and exhaustion; she struggled to connect with her mother, only to be met by rejection; and, in her weakest moments, she questioned her faith.
In The Highest of Care: A Journey Through Cancer, Roseman offers hope in the face of terminal illness, denial and the reality of death. The book details the healing journey of Roseman’s relationship with her mother, rife with lack of communication and power struggles. With the patience of a saint, Roseman dedicated her life to her mother’s care, relying on God to help guide her in becoming the heart-centered caretaker her mother needed. And just when she needed it most, Roseman experienced a supernatural display of God’s promise of eternal life.
The Highest of Care offers comfort and hope to those undertaking the difficult task of caring for a loved one. Messages from God along the journey, including a message in the form of a lion on the wall above her mother’s bed, strengthened Roseman’s faith and affirmed that life is eternal. At the end of her mother’s life, she saw the lion reappear, gently guiding her mother into the afterlife. This profound experience facilitated a Divine awakening for Roseman, enveloped with God’s love.
As Roseman recalls, “I didn’t know that a book would come out of that 22-month-long season. It wasn’t until the end of her life, when a miracle happened, that I knew the story had to be told.” Through the powerful Christian prayer model she discovered years before, Sozo prayer, she broke through and found the courage and inner peace needed to continue caring for her mother and to begin practicing self-care.
The Highest of Care is filled with hope, reminding readers that messages from God are possible—in everyday life and in the miraculous—and all you need is to look for them.
