At our 2023 Elder Advocacy & Law Boot Camp event, we had the privilege of sitting down with the inspiring Reverend Joe Krupp, whose magnetic personality and uplifting attitude have touched countless lives over the years. As the chaplain for the Michigan State football team, as well as leading several parishes throughout the state of Michigan, he has provided comfort and joy to many families during the pandemic and beyond. Listen in as we discuss his incredible journey, including the heartwarming story of how he brought happiness to a family on a wife's birthday, despite her dementia.
Reverend Krupp also shares his personal experience of caring for his mother, who had Alzheimer's. Her remarkable life of service, intelligence, and drive led her to take in 38 children in need of a home. As her dementia progressed rapidly, Joe and his family had to come together to honor her last wishes. He touches on the challenges of long-distance caregiving and the importance of family support during such difficult times.
In this thought-provoking episode, Reverend Joe Krupp offers invaluable insights on what it means to be a good human, emphasizing the need to discipline and educate our emotions. He challenges us to acknowledge our emotions without judgment and to ask ourselves whether they are helping or hurting us. Additionally, we discuss Joe's advice on counseling with compassion and joy, and the profound impact of living a life dedicated to serving others.
