Although she was raised in a church going family, Gigi’s love for Jesus grew deeper after the birth of her son Gabriel. The life stories she shares are inspirational and motivating.

Writing down the events of her life has been her passion while keeping a journal for over 35 years. She encourages her audience to record their lives in a journal.

Her first book, Caregivers' Devotions to Go was published in 2010. Gigi just finished co-writing My Message is C.L.E.A.R. - Hope and Strength in the Face of Life's Greatest Adversity with her son Gabe. It was released April 13, 2012.

Gabe was born with severe congenital birth defects affecting his arms and legs. With his three-inch arms, he reached into heaven and found hope. He handed that hope to his family and their life has never been the same.

A lover of God’s Word, Gigi has facilitated Bible study for many years. She has been a speaker at retreats, community meetings and teas. She enjoys mentoring women in their walk of faith. Her love for people is evident in her caring nature and smile.

Gigi Devine Murfitt is a fantastic author. She has created a devotional for caregivers. There are lots of devotionals out there, one for moms, kids, dads, grandparents. All of them are amazing. But this one...well, this one is special. We don't always think of caregivers as people deserving praise or emotional contribution to the world. But, through this 144 page devotion. Gigi has done it. She has created a wonderful and amazing "on-the-go" book for that special person who takes care of the kids, the ailing parents and grandparents, the one person who can make us feel better.

Whether you are a parent, a grandchild, or child, this book is written for you in someway. Maybe you are like me (and Gigi!) and have taken care of a child with birth defects. Or maybe you are like me, and helped take care of a grandparent with Alzheimer's. Or, a CNA like I was and took care of OTHER peoples parents and grandparents. No matter what you are in the Caregiver field, this book is written for YOU! Gigi puts a scripture passage before each devotional story,which comes from her own life experiences as a caregiver. She adds a beautiful prayer after each and that is followed by daily activities to coordinate with the devotion itself. AWESOME!

I highly recommend this devotional with 5 stars. I smiled, I cried, and I related well with the emotions and thoughts that Gigi put into each of her stories. This is perfect if you are a caregiver, or maybe if you are looking for a gift to give that special person taking care of your ailing special person, this would be a WONDERFULLY amazing book to give them! They can take it EVERYWHERE and when they are feeling a little down about themselves, they'll get a great pick-me-up!!!
