About the Author

This devotional journal is written specifically to encourage all those who carry or share caring responsibility. This could be for a relative, friend or someone placed with you, including children, the elderly, disabled, those with mental health issues or any additional vulnerabilities. Included are Bible verses, devotions, thought provoking questions and prayers, with illustrated pages to record your own thoughts, and colour if you wish.    

Through spending time with God; and taking practical wisdom from the Bible, you will be inspired, not only to be able to say you are ‘Still Standing’, but to grow and move forwards. From time to time we all need to be reminded that even when things are tough, we are not alone and there is hope.

Ruth has been in caring roles for over twenty years. Following a career in Social Work, she alongside her husband Wil went on to be a Shared Lives Provider, Foster Carer and then Adopter. Ruth is also part of the leadership team in her local church Lifecentral in Halesowen. She shares her story in the middle of the book.
