Based on sound and mature spiritual and psychological principles, Recalling Our Own Stories will serve as an antidote for burnout as no other work can. The author moves beyond the individualistic focus of many books on self-care of religious caregivers and attends to how cultural myths about gender and ethnicity interact with personal and familial myths to shape our religious vocations as caregivers.
