Bloggy Giveaways Carnival: Enter Today to Win "Freedom"

“With tears in my eyes and a bony finger pointing toward the heavens, I shouted my biggest grievance of all… “God why won’t you heal her?” In response He said, “Nancy, I won’t heal her for two reasons. First of all, you want her healed for you. You don’t want her healed so much for her sake as you want it for you. You want out. Second, I can do more through not healing her than if I do.” ----- Freedom.

In the pages of Freedom, Nancy Douglas candidly shares the pain, grief, and trials of having a disabled child. From the initial storm of discovering her daughter was Autistic, deaf, and Failure to Thrive, to the agony of knowing she would never receive physically healing, her compelling and honest account of life with a special needs child will transform the heart of all who read it. Walk with Nancy through the pages of her journey and discover for yourself the true and lasting freedom God has waiting for you!

This sounds like a very powerful & moving book. While I don't have first hand experience with a special needs child, my close friend has a daughter on the spectrum and I've seen how she struggles, I'd love to share this book with her!

I would love a chance to read this book. My son has a heart defect and has survived a stroke. I love reading the stories of other moms who have gone through tough times with their special needs children, it gives me such hope.

Mrs. Hewett said...

Wow! This sounds like a good book. My husband and I adopted a son with multiple special needs. Learning to let go of what we thought life with him would be like and embracing the reality God has given us is proving more of a challenge than we imagined. Thank you for including me in your drawing.

I would like to read this book and share it for ministry purposes. I am a ESL teacher in Asia and one of my first students recently had a baby with water on the brain. This isn't a big deal in the US but they are poor and it was untreated for 2 months. The baby's head got bigger and bigger. Finally they were able to do a surgery but the head is still big and she is seemingly blind. She can't really roll over or do things that she should be doing at her age (9 months). My student is not a believer but I hope that this situation can draw him to the Lord.

I'd love to read this. Thanks. When I finished, I'd pass it on to a friend whose son choked on a candy at daycare and wasn't breathing for 6 minutes. He has life lasting effects- speaking, walking, eating, are all impossible for him now.

The first paragraph of your post sent chills through me. My 3-year old is high functioning autistic, and some days it is so hard to carry on. I don't know where God is in my life right now, either. This book sounds like something I need. (ladycato@hotmail.com)

I'm glad I came across your blog. I'd like to win this book, but I want to write the information down because, if I don't win, I'd like to buy it. I have two special needs children whom I pray for on a regular basis, and your opening paragraph got me thinking- am I praying for their healing for me or for them? I'd like to think it was more for them than me, but it would honestly be for both. Also, I've learned to accept that they may never be "normal," and that God may have a reason for leaving them exactly the way they are. I've asked Him to help me accept that, live with that, and learn what He wants me to from it. I'd like a chance to win this book. Thanks for giving this away.
