Jenn’s words in Embracing This Special Life are exactly what parents like us need to hear when adjusting to a life we didn’t expect. She shares from her personal journey and from Scripture, helping readers see God’s plan for their lives from His perspective. I’m so thankful for her encouragement and highly recommend this book!  –Sandra Peoples, M Div, author of Unexpected Blessings: The Joys and Possibilities of Life in a Special-Needs Family

I love how Jenn has written this book in a way to address issues so many families living with autism and special needs can relate to. I love how every chapter talks through releasing negative things we sometimes don’t even realize we are holding onto, and embracing the positive things and the beauty of who our children are. Jenn writes honestly and beautifully in this book that is incredibly encouraging. It’s been wonderful to read through, knowing I’m not alone in my journey with my son with autism with all the emotions that entails, and day-to-day things of life with special needs.”   –Sarah Broady, blogger at Hope in Autism.


This is a fantastic book for moms of special needs children. So many great reminders. The author does a great job of contrasting things to embrace and things to release. She weaves scripture throughout to support each chapter. I loved this so much and recommend it to any mommas dealing with a diagnosis for their child.”   –Melanie Gomez, author of Bundle of Joy: A Devotional for Moms of Special Kids


Jenn has a wonderful and unique way with words. She has been down the rabbit hole and back and came out with new found faith and wisdom to pay it forward to other parents just starting this journey. I especially appreciated her reflection questions at the end of each chapter so readers can take an active part.”   –Laura Kay Smith, blogger at SLP Mommy of Apraxia
