Find Encouragement and Hope with Others Who Understand
PROCESS LIFE AND FAITH WITH CAREGIVING PEERS
Real Talk Connect is an online Christ-pointing community experience for special needs parents, grandparents and caregivers as well as siblings over 16 years old who have a brother or sister with special needs.
Each week, we look at one family strengthening principle.
Come ready to find encouragement, share experiences, explore God’s Word together, ask your questions, receive prayer, and build hope — all in the atmosphere of casual conversation and the comforts of your own home (or even patio chair, car, park bench).
Lisa Jamieson facilitates the Tuesday group. She is the mother of three grown daughters including Carly, her youngest, who has Angelman Syndrome. Lisa is the co-founder of Walk Right In Ministries where she also serves as a caregiver consultant and ordained pastoral counsellor.
The Finding Glory Collection
The Finding Glory collection is great for personal study or a faith-based conversation opportunity.
The FG Group Discussion Guide is designed to be easily facilitated by someone in your own book club or small group. Make it flexible for your schedule and group type (e.g., special needs moms, dad or couples). With several question options, it’s repeatable when used in a recurring support group format.
The Finding Glory Group curriculum is organized in six (6) core sessions, with an optional seventh session for relaxed fellowship wrap-up and reflection.
The Group Discussion Guide offers several discussion question options for each session so that you can customize conversational themes according to the specific needs and interests of your group.
When someone in your family is experiencing disability or other special needs, it can be difficult to move toward hope and purpose alone. Faith-based peer groups are a way to connect with others who understand. Your group becomes a place to explore the Bible’s answers to your questions and enjoy Christ-pointing fellowship together.
Finding Glory Groups provide a structure for you to make discoveries and experience fresh encouragement.
- Understand how your own personal life experiences fit into God’s larger story.
- Find purpose, reassurance, encouragement and confidence in your challenges.
- Work through any sorrow, disappointment, or grief.
- Understand what the Bible has to say about life challenges and suffering.
- Build a support system for yourself and others.
- Face the future with hope!
