The Long Journey Home


Planning for End of Life

Few of us want to think about the reality that, one day, our earthly life will end.  The Long Journey Home is a resource for thinking about who to appoint as a trusted person to make decisions on your behalf; what kinds of medical interventions you do or do not want; the legacy you want others to know about your life and its meaning; spiritual considerations; and funeral or memorial service plans to celebrate your life.

How Do I Talk About These Things?

This book can be a tool and guide for comfortable and life-giving conversations with loved ones.  It is filled with wisdom and conversation starters for people of all ages and circumstances. 

A Testimony

"This resource was invaluable to us as my wife and I faced the reality of her terminal illness.  The information contained in the book, along with the insights and spiritual care, guided up in making informed decisions.  I was about to be fully present with her at the end of her life knowing these decisions had been made together."  W.P.
