Hospice Chaplain Authors Book on Spiritual Journey

J Love REDUCED

John Love, a Cincinnati resident and chaplain with Hospice of Butler & Warren Counties, started writing spiritual reflections and meditations three and a half years ago. He wrote them to share with patients and staff, and the positive response motivated him to keep writing. The result is a new book titled Fearless Living and Loving: Christian Hope for the Sick and Their Caregivers. According to the author, it is a book that guides readers through a spiritual journey of self-discovery.

“As a chaplain, I’m sensitive to honoring all faith traditions,” Love explains. “I didn’t write this book to change what people believe. Rather, I think it will help people clarify their beliefs and encourage readers to examine what their faith means to them. I also wanted to provide an uplifting message, a book that offers hope for people facing chronic or terminal illness and for those who love and care for them.”

Love has observed that end-of-life care presents unique challenges for professional caregivers. He says, “Hospice organizations are blessed to attract the very best of the best: nurses, aides, counselors, and so on. But the physical and emotional demands of the work can deplete caregivers and lead to burnout. I believe that spiritual work helps us grow in love and faith. And as we grow in love and faith – as we feel closer and more connected to God – we are better equipped to handle the daily stress which comes our way.”

Fearless Living and Loving is available through WestBow Press, a division of Christian publisher Thomas Nelson & Zondervan. It can be ordered online at www.westbowpress.com  or by calling WestBow at 1-866-928-1240. Love’s book will soon be available at  Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
