"Freedom, Healing for Parents of Disabled Children"

What a relief! My second book, Freedom, Healing for Parents of Disabled Children, is now complete. Written for and in honor of parents with special needs children, I wrote what I wish my husband and I had when we first started our life with a disabled child; an honest account of what it’s really like. I still don’t consider myself a writer. In fact I prefer to think of myself as God’s secretary. Somehow it’s sounds less intimidating and a whole lot more accurate. Whatever my title, the job is complete and I believe the Lord is pleased. From the get-go I knew I didn’t want the book to be about Autism, our family, or me. I wanted it to be about God. After writing the book once, I started to re-read the final print only to discover I couldn’t see enough of God in the content. Since I refuse to release a book that does not first glorify God, I proceeded to re-write the whole thing. By the time I reach the last chapter I was absolutely exhausted. So ready to be done, I honestly thought I’d never sit down at a computer again. But I was determined to finish strong and that’s exactly what I did. I persevered to the end and I am so glad I did, because the next time I'm tempted to quit or give up, I'll remember this blessing of pushing forward in all God has called me to do. Now many hurting parents of disabled children have a little more comfort and understanding. What a good thing!

I recently found your site, and am very impressed. It will take me a while to read more of it than I can today. My blog is relatively new, too. I can only hope that the people who read what I write will benefit some. Undoubtedly, your readers benefit. I know I did (will). Thanks! Visit me, or tell anyone who you think might like my site www.therextras.com. My intended audience is parents of children with disabilities also.
