A story of commitment that spans sickness AND health. Robert and Muriel McQuilkin both had thriving ministries. And then Muriel began to forget things. Thus began the harrowing - yet ultimately triumphant - story of a love that endures the ravages of Alzheimer's disease. Caregivers will find encouragement and hope in this honest story of a tragic illness and dedication, and married couples will find inspiration to keep the vows they made to love "for better or for worse."
A compelling true tale of love and devotion as a husband cares for his ill wife. He shares the story of their struggles and the remarkable lessons they have learned together about God's love.
A Promise Kept: The Story of Unforgettable Love
Wonderful example of true love & commitment!
I just completed reading this wonderful book! Just a year ago I lost my mother to Alzherimer's Disease. So many of the refections and questions mirrored my own experience. What a soothing balm to my still grieving heart.
I also think this book should be apart of premarital counseliing. The line by line wedding vow outline brings the reader to the true meaning of love and commitment in marriage.
I plan to purchase addiitonal copies for friends and family.

A story of commitment even when it is hard.
This is a story of a couple living out the covenant they made before God. With early onset Alzheimers many have chosen a different route. This would be a human representation of how God sticks with us because of the covenant He made.

I sat under the teaching of J. Robertson McQuilkin as a professor at Columbia Bible College, now Columbia International University in Columbia, SC in the early 1970's. His wife was a wonderful woman with great creativity and a beautiful spirit. He gave up the presidency of the college to become her full-time caregiver. It was a privilege to know them both. This book shows what deep Christ-like love is and the importance of the marriage vows. I hope you will give it a read.

If you have or know someone with a debilitating disease or condition then this book is a must. The author gives us all an example of what can be received from the burdens that are placed upon us by God, this book is very moving and easy to read and in a very short time could uplift anyone no matter what challenges they are facing. This would be a very good pastoral tool for anyone counseling a spouse of someone with Alzheimers or even couples entering marriage to expose them to true love.
