Amy Scholz is director of church and donor relations for Lutheran Braille Workers. She’s also an LCMS pastor’s wife, a fellow Lutheran lady, and a veteran family caregiver, having walked alongside both her father and her husband as they navigated serious health conditions decades apart.
In this One-Question Interview, Amy joins the Ladies to share her story and talk frankly about caregiving. How does God prepare his servants (women especially) for the work of “caregiver”? What are the bad days like? The good days? How can women keep themselves and their relationships strong in a caregiver scenario? How can they stay refreshed and spiritually resilient as they fulfill this calling?
To dig more deeply into this topic, check out Kim Marxhausen’s Weary Joy: The Caregiver’s Journey (recommended by Amy Scholz and available from CPH).
