As the parent of a child with special needs, does your heart ache with questions, confusion, or discouragement? Do you ever feel that you have no margin in your emotional reserves or sense a gaping need for encouragement, rest, and refreshment? Caring for someone with autism, Down syndrome, ADHD, emotional or behavioral disorders, or physical disabilities can be all-consuming. Bible Promises for Parents of Children with Special Needs can help you claim God’s promises for your everyday life. You’ll become more aware of God’s passion for you and your child through this handy guide that speaks directly to the unique journey of special needs parenting. These promises are for your comfort. Claim them as your own. Pray them over your family and over your children. Let them guide you into the presence of Jesus and the security that only he can provide.
Bible Promises for Parents of Children with Special Needs is a great little book to have on hand for those times when you need comfort in the word of God. The book is broken down into categories so you can look up references to scripture based on how you are feeling. Whether you are frustrated, sad, scared or whatever else you may be feeling—this book has a reference.
I feel like this book is good for your day-to-day life but I do feel that the topics of death and just a few scriptures to help you through those times is a bit over simplified.
On one hand, I truly liked that this book is basically just an index of scriptures for a variety of emotions that a parent of a special needs child may go through. On that topic though, I would have preferred that these scriptures were in King James Version. Perhaps an edition where parents can choose the translation.
If you’re looking for a reference guide to easily find scriptures to deal with your spiritual and emotional needs then this one is great. Otherwise, the book skims over some of the grittier topics.
