Author Bio

After taking care of elderly parents, Sandy Lovern realized that there are a plethora of books on the clinical aspect of taking care of loved ones; however, there are none that deal with the emotional feelings of being a caretaker. “It is a new phenomenon for the baby boomer generation and the figures are alarming as to the growing number of individuals who will inevitably find themselves in this situation,” says Sandy. Sandy’s passion for ministry has led her to give birth to a church, Faith Covenant Center, in Immokalee, Florida. Sandy has previously written Engaged! A Devotional to Help a Bride‐to‐Be Navigate Down the Aisle (New Hope Publishers). Sandy and her husband have successfully raised two children and now live in Mulberry, Florida.
