First a little about the author:

Now for her book:

"(dis)Abilities and the Gospel: 
How to Bring People with Special Needs Closer to Christ"



Each day, parents and church leaders struggle to teach individuals with special needs. Using helpful information, real-life stories, and a touch of humor, "(dis)Abilities and the Gospel" provides ways for you to effectively teach people of all ages with autism, Down syndrome, bipolar disorder, memory loss, and other disabilities. 










I've been a teacher of primary age children for about as long as I've been married. Apparently Heavenly Father knew that I needed practice before I became a mother myself. I wish I'd had this book as a resource about three years ago when a special needs boy was in my class. He was so smart, and so sharp, but I was never able to fully help him without cutting off the other kids. This resource is fantastic! I highly recommend all primary teachers as well as parents with children of special abilities grab this!


Here is a snippet, that really touched my heart:


“While it’s important to have a basic understanding of each person’s disability, it’s more important to focus on their abilities. Every child of God has a tremendous future. Parents and church leaders have the responsibility to help everyone reach his or her potential.”
