Description

Product Description

More than one-fifth of US households with children have at least one child with special needs. Raising a child with special needs is spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically challenging. Parents need encouragement to restore hope and a passion for God in their lives -but the realities of having to be parent, nurse, therapist, and caregiver make it difficult to find the time or initiative to seek encouragement.

Packed with encouragement from parents who understand this complicated balancing act, Refresh is designed to provide just what these parents need. The devotional guides parents to spiritual truths that can be applied to the demands they face every day. It offers perspective and hope through the varying stages and phases families experience, from diagnosis to loss and grief.

Each day''s devotional includes a reading from Scripture, as well as stories and testimonies from parents who intimately know the struggle readers face. Their children represent a wide range of special needs, including autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, genetic disorders, chronic illness, and more. Drew and Green show how the truths of God''s Word are relevant, regardless of the diagnosis. Their devotional illuminates the unique lessons and perspectives to be gained as a result of raising a child with special needs.

Insightful and powerful, Refresh will help weary parents grow spiritual roots and turn toward the Light that never fades.

Review

"“Wherever you are on your special-needs journey, this book will touch your heart. It will give you inspiration as you finish the course God has for your precious family." -- Lynda T. Young, author of Hope for Families of Children on the Autistic Spectrum Published On: 2016-06-14

"Parenting a child with special needs is no easy task. I know: I''ve been there. I recall the day my daughter was born and our lives flipped upside down. I remember the financial uncertainties, the multiple hospitalizations, and the never-ending medical appointments and therapy sessions. But I also remember experiencing God''s faithfulness in the midst. And that’s where one''s focus must rest in order to thrive amidst the challenges. This devotional will lead you to that place. Its words inspire hope in God and trust in his ways and wisdom. Let them lead you to the Father''s heart, renew your perspective, and refresh your spirit." -- Grace Fox, author of Moving from Fear to Freedom Published On: 2016-06-14

"Parents of children with special needs too often inhabit a dry and thirsty land of isolation and despair. Kimberly Drew and Jocelyn Green''s devotional offers living water and food for the soul to families wandering in the desert. Filled with stories and advice from parents who have walked the same road, and replete with promises and encouragement from Scripture, Refresh is an oasis of hope for families living with the realities of special-needs parenting. I highly recommend it." -- Jolene Philo, national speaker and author of A Different Dream for My Child Published On: 2016-06-14

"''I had to pull over on the way home to cry. I had lost the mother-daughter relationship and future I had dreamed about.'' When I read these words in the first pages of Refresh, I knew immediately that these authors trod the same path I had. They know the weaknesses of my heart and that God is the source of strength that sustains me. This devotional touches the heart and soul of parents with children who need special care, no matter how extensive that care may be. Refresh is truly refreshment along this trail given to us by God." -- Susan K. Stewart, author of Preschool: At What Cost? Published On: 2016-06-14

"Parents of special-needs children feel so alone and misunderstood, but Jocelyn and Kimberly give them a voice and a loving shoulder to lean on just when they wonder if they''re going to make it. With empathy and encouraging words from the Lord, coupled with stories that will tug at every parent''s heart, Refresh is more than a devotional--it''s a lifeline of hope." -- Janet Thompson, founder of Woman to Woman Mentoring, speaker, & author of Forsaken God? Published On: 2016-06-14

About the Author

Kimberly Drew is a graduate of Taylor University, with a degree in elementary education. She and her college sweetheart, Ryan, have been married since 2000 and live with their four children. They also have a son, who is waiting for them in heaven.Kimberly developed a passion for children with special needs and their parents after their firstborn daughter suffered a traumatic birth which resulted in multiple disabilities, including cerebral palsy, a seizure disorder, hearing loss, and microcephaly. From these experiences, and a heart to see and know Christ more, came the desire to help other parents grow in their Christian walk through their own experience raising a child with special needs. In 2016, she and Ryan adopted their fourth child, a baby girl with special needs. Kimberly has been serving alongside Ryan in full-time youth ministry since they were married.

Jocelyn Green is a multiple award-winning author of more than ten works of fiction and nonfiction, including the Faith Deployed and Faith Deployed . . . Again devotionals for military wives, The 5Love Languages Military Edition (with Dr. Gary Chapman), and the Heroines Behind the Lines Civil War series of novels. Her passion for special-needs families was ignited when her newborn son was diagnosed with congenital hypothyroidism, which causes dwarfism and profound mental disability. While his daily medication has kept his development on track with his typical peers, Jocelyn''s heart remains burdened for the special-needs child and parent. She''s a graduate of Taylor University with a degree in writing.

Very reassuring and so helpful. I only made it to the second entry before running for my pen and highlighter! As special needs parents, we often run into the trap of feeling isolated in our situations. The stories shared here remind us that we are not alone. Other parents have gone through, are going through and will go through similar struggles. Most of all, we are reminded that we are never alone in our struggles if we seek God first. Thank you ladies for writing this! I recommend this for parents of children with special needs and also for family and friends who know someone with a special needs child. The insights will be invariable.

Couldn''t put it down. This resource is loaded with scripture that are used in the context as it was intended and is biblically sound. The gospel is clearly communicated and offered. The biggest message to me was the fact that God is sovereign over EVERYTHING. This is a wonderful work and a considerable help to me as a mother of two children with ASD. My prayer is the God would allow me to share this with other moms of special needs blessings.

This book has been very encouraging to me, as I am a Foster Mom. This book was not necessarily meant for me, but the stories and scriptures are still greatly encouraging to me. I highly recommend this book to anyone needing some spiritual nourishment regarding parenting any child, especially those parenting a child with a difficult diagnosis of any kind. Although the stories may be mostly about special needs such as cerebral palsy, the lessons learned apply to us all! I purchased this book for myself, as well as a friend who has a child with cerebral palsy. She also is enjoying this book immensely!
