Clay Jar, Cracked: When We’re Broken But Not Shattered guides readers through some of life's most painful and traumatic experiences. We are all like fragile jars made of clay, and life’s disappointments and tragedies threaten to destroy us. Financial ruin, the loss of a child, a daunting diagnosis, addiction, or even loss of faith leave cracks in our jars. Some are wider and deeper than others, but each weakens the whole . As these cracks occur, how do we keep from shattering? How can we find authentic joy within our cracks and avoid succumbing to hopelessness or bitterness? Clay Jar, Cracked provides bold, thoughtful, and compelling answers to these questions and suggests an answer to perhaps the most intriguing question of all: Could even the biggest cracks be worth it?

Every 65 seconds, someone in America develops Alzheimer’s disease.
What would you do if your loved one received the devastating diagnosis?
Fifteen million unpaid caregivers are thrust into the caregiving role by necessity, with very little understanding of how Alzheimer’s disease has, and will, slowly deteriorate their loved one. H.O.P.E. for the Alzheimer’s Journey Helps, Organizes, Prepares, and Educates caregivers for the difficult road ahead, providing knowledge, tools, and advice that Carol B. Amos and her brothers learned or developed during their eleven-year journey providing care for their mother.
The Caregiving Principle™, Carol’s novel approach to caregiving, is the central theme and is a simple method that provides a deeper understanding of a person with Alzheimer’s disease and a framework for the caregiver’s role.
With words of inspiration, personal reflections, anecdotes, and original family email communication throughout, H.O.P.E. for the Alzheimer’s Journey conveys concepts in an open, honest, and creative manner. Carol and her siblings share their thoughts, concerns, emotions, and deliberations and encourage caregivers to take care of themselves, while providing inspiration for the remainder of their journey.
