Join us as we discuss mom life, being a caregiver, a mom to a preteen, homeschool, and how autism has changed our lives! We pray you find encouragement for your days as we incorporate God's word and apply it to our daily lives.
Are you on the fence about getting an autism diagnosis for your child? Perhaps all the criteria lines up, but you are having apprehensions about getting the final word from a professional. There is no need to be afraid. Getting a diagnosis for your child will open so many doors for them now and in the future. Listen to this real life story and decide for yourself!

It's no big secret that children learn more about what we do through our actions than what we tell them to do- with our actions not aligning with our words. Here I share scripture and a story about the best dream you can have for your child. Will you choose to live it out or give into worldly pressures that draw you away from God rather than toward Him and His ways? #faith #autism #action #God #Jesus #scripture
Join us today as I talk about tips and ways that I have been able to teach my five year old son with autism life skills. I hope you are encouraged and be sure to share!

Today I am talking about what coping skills look like in children with autism. I share some specific examples based on our son's ability to cope with new environments and what he does when he is overwhelmed by anxiety. Oftentimes these coping behaviors look strange to outsiders, but the reality is that these kids have to develop techniques to help them cope with the world around them.
In this episode I share how our son with autism has finally came out of his regression period! Also, I share about our family's past week and offer some encouragement for moments of crisis.

In today's episode I talk about the difficulty autism families often have during Thanksgiving and Christmas. Sometimes they are not able to leave their homes because their child with autism just cannot cope. I offer suggestions on how to support these families during this time.

In today's episode I am talking about how our family's "normal" way of doing things evolved into a new "normal" after our son's diagnosis. Our older, 'typical' son has had to adjust as well. Sometimes we have to split our time as a family, but we have learned how to adjust.

Being brave means you do it even though you are scared. God is with you! If He is calling you to something, trust Him and take that step of faith. If you fail, you can simply count that on your spiritual resume as a lesson learned!
