When Juli Sellers agreed to care for her father, the decision wasn’t easy. She had to reconcile years of abuse with the growing need to help him as his memory diminished. After a lifetime of hurt, she searched for the forgiveness that would heal their relationship before it was too late. In Juli’s book, Yes, Father: A Daughter’s Journey to Forgiveness, she shares the hopeful story of her journey into caring for her father with Alzheimer’s while learning to forgive him for his past.
If you’ve longed to restore a broken family relationship or have cared for a parent with Alzheimer’s, you’ll relate to the struggle of hanging on to hope in the midst of difficult circumstances. I hope you’ll be encouraged by Juli’s testimony of her healing from her own personal father wound.
