This special needs parenting journey is no joke. And being a Christian special needs parent adds in the struggle of trusting that God has a plan for your good and your child's good amidst all the worries, appointments, struggles, and the isolation that comes with special needs parenting.
Believe me, I know. I have two sons and between the two of them, we are at twelve diagnoses and counting. I went through my own crisis of faith, spiraling into a pit of alternating anxiety and depression.
Scriptures have been my lifeline, my source of hope and encouragement that God has a plan and a purpose for me and my children and I want to not just survive, but flourish in my faith and to enjoy life–all the struggles and the joys and the triumphs that come with it.
I have compiled several of my favorite spiritual resources I have created for encouraging fellow special needs mothers in their own special needs parenting journey into one spiritual survival resource guide.
There are twenty pages of hope, encouragement, and scriptures in this free, printable resource guide. Some of these resources include:
◊ Embracing This Special Life – my own vulnerable, yet (hopefully) powerful testimony about my crisis of faith in my special needs parenting journey and how God whispered one word into my anxious, weary heart that changed EVERYTHING for me — and I believe can change everything for you too.
◊ Embracing This Special Life Manifesto – a printable list of 15 declarations that will help put you in the mindset to not just survive the special needs journey, but to thrive spiritually, emotionally, and physically.
◊ 20 Scriptures for Special Needs Parents – a printable list to remind you of God's love, His truth, and His plan for you, your family, and your child.
◊ 15 Scriptures to Pray For Your Special Needs Child(ren) – As a special needs mother we learn to advocate for our children. But this printable list will provide you with scriptures so you advocate for your child on your knees before the throne of God.
and much more!
