After taking The Heart of A Caregiver, I felt as if God was using this season of caregiving to teach me that He is in control of all things and always with me to help me. All I need to do is call His name. I have nothing to fear.
This small group changed my perspective on our whole situation. It taught me to realize that I don’t have to be a superwoman. It showed me how to live a balanced life, and see my special needs child as a gift. I am so grateful for this group!
I did a small group at my church with this book and even after all the years that I have been a caregiver it changed my life for the better.
I was especially encouraged by the words you said in the sections about Acknowledging and Aligning. The part that touched me most was the example that said “God, you love this person I am caring for even more than I do. I want to know that you are real and in control because I am losing it.”
Thank you for all you are doing to help others find peace and joy in helping their loved ones.
Through the course and the scriptures discussed I no longer feel put upon in caring for my son. I heartily recommend this book and the course itself. God always shows us a new window whenever a door is closed.
This book changed my perspective on our whole situation. It taught me to realize that I … don’t have to be a superwoman. It showed me how to live a balanced life, and see my special needs child as a gift. I highly recommend this book to any caregiver!
“When you are looking at overwhelming circumstances as a caregiver you need a guidebook that not only helps you on your journey but allows you to walk on the journey with others going through similar circumstances. I can’t think of a better resource for caregivers that provides the experience, wisdom, and hope Mary has poured into this resource. You will move from victim to victor and find your joy in the journey is not only possible but probable.”

Our church invited Mary Tutterow as a guest speaker. What occurred far exceeded our expectations. First, the parish hall was filled! Three times what we expected!
Secondly, exceeding our expectations, was the message Mary delivered. It truly was more than a lecture; it was also a time of ministry. And the feedback for weeks after the event indicated one of those kinds of highlights in the ministry of the church, where everyone was so impressed and inspired!
The committee sponsoring the event had decided to ask the attendees at the conclusion of the luncheon if anyone would be interested in forming a Support Group (of Caregivers), using Mary’s book, The Heart of the Caregiver, as a guide. About a dozen people responded.
The Support Group has been and is successful in attendance and in ministry. The feedback is that the material, the sharing, and the discussions are helpful and encouraging.
I recommend this ministry for Caregivers to other churches. The need for such a ministry was evidenced by the response of our congregation, including the formation and meetings of the Caregivers Support Group.

I was so fortunate to get connected to The Heart of a Caregiver at the beginning of the diagnosis and the beginning of the journey. This helped me start off with the proper lens with which to view this journey. I was able to get the resources, the knowledge, the truths that I’ve needed to protect my mind and my heart from getting off track. I continue to re-read the book as I need to be reminded all the information that is so easily forgotten as I get tired and worn out. Thanks be to God for this resource!
I am no longer overwhelmed by circumstance. I am empowered and overjoyed by His presence.
Mary Tutterow does an excellent job showing that a caregiver is doing the highest calling that Christ can ask of someone. The struggles and sacrifice that are required to be a caregiver can be enormous, but she points out the rewards are unmatched.
The Heart of the Caregiver small group at Leeza’s Care Connection is a wonderful blessing!!! The study is so rich with God’s amazing grace and truth in the midst of the caregiving journey!
Jan Buck and I have been leading this small group at LCC. Thank you for reaching out to us as we encourage others to pray that God will give them eyes to see and ears to hear His perspective.
I cared for my husband seven years and kept a journal of God’s messages to me concerning our journey. So many of your lessons reflect those same messages from God through His Word and prayer.
I thank God for you!
In His Love,
Mary Tutterow writes from experience as a caregiver who has undergone a phenomenal transformation and shares how others can too. She writes in a straight-forward style that makes this … transformation very real.
Heart of the Caregiver truly takes you from Overwhelmed (bewildered, fatigued & emotional) to Overjoyed (in the Spirit of our Lord)! Our study group was blessed to have Mary guide us through what the Bible has to say about our role as caregiver.
I have been participating in various Bible studies for more than 12 years, and this study by far exceeded anything I have read … in the past. I have never seen such logical and well planned scriptural references tied in with practical life application.
