The Power of Presence: A Love Story is an incredibly moving book by the brilliant author, Neil Anderson!
Neil Anderson has traveled the world, speaking and teaching, and has also written many books. At his side, at his back, has been his wife Joanne. They have been together for over 50 years.
Now Joanne is gripped by a long decline, sinking gradually into agitated dementia. She depends on Neil’s presence, calls him Daddy. He has no training as a nurse, but now for long hours he sits at her bedside, and cares for her bodily needs.
They do not speak much: conversation is a strain. So Neil has used the silent hours to pray, to spend time in God’s presence.
Written by Neil T Anderson. Paperback. 144 pages. SPECIAL PRICE. RRP £7.99. Saving £1.
Who are the Mothers’ Union?

Their various programmes work to improve family life within the communities of over 80 countries. An example of this is the Literacy & Financial Education Programme.

And most of all, the profit raised from online shop sales also helps create lasting change.
