“When we don’t have enough each day to care for somebody, we turn to God to give us that strength.” That’s the gist of what Dr. Benjamin Mast tells P&S this morning, during National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month. Dr. Mast says patients “forget recent information very quickly, but there are other things they can remember much better.” Some of those other things include “stories of long ago“, “old hymns“, and “scriptures they’ve learned.”
Dr. Mast is a professor at the University of Louisville & author of Second Forgetting.

Dr. Hunt’s new Bedtime Devotions with Jesus is geared to not only facilitate discussion with your youngster, but also teach them to own their faith.
