Few moments in life are as humbling and awakening as becoming the primary caregiver for one of your own parents. Caregiving for a Warrior: My Life with My Mother, Rev. Bernice Warren is the heartwarming story of love, loss, and recovery as a woman recounts the important moments in her mother’s life.
Rev. Bernice Warren overcame poverty and being an unwed mother to become the first black woman ordained as Presbyterian Minister in the Philadelphia Presbytery. Triumphs build throughout a life well lived until tragedy struck in the form of pancreatic cancer. Each chapter details the joys and pains of forging a strong relationship beyond that of a mother and daughter.
Caregiving for a Warrior shows the world the intimate battles one family struggled through and the path to recovery. Perhaps nothing is more poignant than the words a daughter continues to live by long after her mother’s death: “People will talk about our love story forever.”
“With the skills of a seasoned writer, Kearni N. Warren not only shares with us a unique and empowering love story, but she does it against a background that identifies three critical concerns impacting the times in which we live… caregiving, relationships, and leadership.”
— Rev. Dr. Marsha Snulligan Haney
