Grant and Tammy Ethridge have addressed a universal challenge that Baby Boomers have either experienced recently or going through now—becoming a parent to our parents.  One has to wonder why someone hasn’t addressed this before? They do it from first-hand experience and do it with compassion but a level of candor that makes it truly practical and encouraging.

As my wife and I are in the stage of life in which we are parenting our parents, I cannot think of a book that would be more helpful for baby-boomers in this season of life. Grant and Tammy are two very caring, loving, open, and transparent people who share their heart and passion for honoring our parents in this final stage. On top of that, all they share is founded on their faith in Jesus Christ. This book will be a help to so many.

Grant and Tammy Ethridge are model parents and have a model marriage. They have both the credibility and the character to teach us how to continue to honor our parents when they need our care the most. I wish I’d had this book when my parents were still living.
