Our second guest will be RJ Thesman, Author of The Unraveling of Reverend G hit bookstores and eBookstores on August 6 and tells the story of a minister who gets a devastating diagnosis – dementia with the possibility of early-onset Alzheimer’s. Reverend G struggles with the pain of forgetting those she loves and the fear of losing her connection with God. With the help of her friends at the assisted living facility, she soon discovers there’s humor to be found in forgetting part of the Lord’s Prayer, finding her iron in the freezer and losing a half-gallon of ice cream. And she discovers that while the question she wants to ask is, ‘Why,’ the question that needs to be answered is, ‘Who.’
