Extraordinary Service

Extraordinary Service

It was 6:30 pm on a Saturday night and we weren't dressed for it. But one of our most memorable restaurant experiences we've ever had started to unfold. I posted part of this story on Facebook Saturday night and many have been finding it great blessing to read. So it seemed worthy of taking a moment to flesh out a few more of the miraculous details and make a full blog of it. I hope you enjoy it and are encouraged. May God Himself be praised!

Life Is in the Details When Special Needs Parenting

Life Is in the Details When Special Needs Parenting

Visions of summer vacations are starting to creep into my head and it's only April. There are just so many details to navigate. Planning and preparing for vacations are overwhelming. Traveling with someone who has disabilities or complex health conditions is complicated. Every caregiver needs to find and optimize their own unique sweet spots. Details are one of mine. Nonetheless, I'm constantly learning to hold plans loosely. On today's blog, we're looking at what really matters when our families with disability and/or complex health issues are literally swimming in life's details.

Parents Make Hard Decisions for Their Kids

Parents Make Hard Decisions for Their Kids

Parenting involves making hard choices on behalf of our child. Sometimes our decisions even cause the child pain. At some point, a parent determines the potential benefits outweigh the potential negative consequences. I need absolute assurance of God’s power and love. You see, things like pain, confusion, and fatigue recur frequently in our home. I am utterly reliant on God for help, healing, hope, wisdom, peace — for literally everything. This past week was another good example. In the middle of another sleepless night, I was second-guessing a couple of our decisions. This week's blog is about parenting. It's about the heavenly Father's love and a post Easter world. I hope you'll head on over and check it out. He is risen indeed!

Creating Space for Special Siblings

Creating Space for Special Siblings

Among those affected by the challenges associated with disability are the siblings. It’s fair to say that many special-needs siblings are bringing a myriad of spoken and unspoken needs to their parents and their churches. And this presents us with unique opportunities to connect with siblings in ways that ripple positively into their families, our faith communities, and the world. Today's blog shines some light on the sibling perspective, and offers examples of how to open up some great communication with special siblings.

Finding Open Doors and Hearts

Finding Open Doors and Hearts

Carly and I headed over to the shoe repair shop the other day because I was hoping to get a favorite leather purse fixed. I knew our local cobbler would be perfect for the job. He would have all the necessary tools, along with a willing and flexible spirit. We have a history with him that goes back to the early 2000s when Carly needed custom wedges on the soles of her shoes. We were very sad to find his shop vacant. And, friends, when you really need your shoe guy, nobody else will do. On today's blog, hear more about our beloved cobbler and learn why his little shop got me thinking about the caregiving families we serve at Walk Right In Ministries.
