End-of-Life Issues Addressed In Poems, Prayers and Meditations

FaithtLove "I speak not of death and dying, but of life and living - with faith and courage each moment till the end." ~ Joyce Marie Sheldon

I was contacted by Joyce Marie Sheldon and offered a sample of her work. Since Joyce, who goes by Joy, is aware of my support of hospice care, she graciously sent her first book From Fear to Faith, A Caregiver's Journey, which was endorsed by Hospice International as a tool for people who are caring for a loved one receiving palliative care. From Fear to Faith is about Joy’s journey with her dying husband. It’s a beautiful book – a beautiful gift for anyone you know who is going through this experience.

Joy also sent me her children’s book, Mia and Mr. Red Feather: A young girl’s story about the death of a friend,” also a touching, wonderfully written and illustrated treasure.

Joy has an exceptional Web site that explains far more about her mission than I have room to do here. I strongly recommend that people interested in learning more about Joy and her work go to
