    Shaping Special Hearts: What Parents Really Need From Ministry Leaders

    in Religion

    Join us live on Tuesday, April 14th at 12pm ET!


    A child’s special needs diagnosis affects the whole family. Parents find themselves struggling with grief, anxiety, depression, exhaustion, and even an unexpected sense of relief. This gamut of emotions can be confusing for ministry leaders as they work with families; it can be difficult to know what to do and how to help.


    Join host Katie Wetherbee as she interviews Barb Dittrich, Executive Director of Snappin’ Ministries. Barb will share information from her experiences working with parents—and from her own journey as a mom. You’ll come away with practical ideas for supporting parents, as well as clear insight on the process of parenting a child with disabilities. She will illuminate listeners about the effect of disabilities on marriages and sibling relationships as well.


    Katie is an educational consultant for Hope Educational Consulting who works with churches, families, and schools. She is also a writer; her articles have been featured on the MOPS and Power of Moms blogs as well as the Huffington Post and in KidzMatter Magazine. Katie is currently the special needs columnist for Children’s Ministry Magazine. In addition, she and author Jolene Philo are currently writing a book called Every Child Welcome, which will be published in April 2015. Katie and her husband, Tom, live in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, with their teenagers and a quirky mutt named Mitzie.

    Carol Stratton,Lake Surrender

    in Books

    In my first novel, Lake Surrender, I use my love of Michigan lakes to tell a story of a woman struggling with abrupt change and difficult circumstances to see a greater hand at work.

    With slices of humor, I write of hardships many face as a single mom, a parent of a disabled child, a displaced employee, a lonely widow and a once homeless young man.

    My characters, flawed, live through unnerving stress, like a barefoot water-skier hanging on to the boat connected with one strand of yarn to life. While hanging onto the boat for dear life they find the unwavering patience of God in the most unusual places.

    Using my degree in Recreational Therapy I have worked with autistic children, In this novel I wanted a story that would lift their value in the world while at the same time highlight the difficulty raising such a special child.

    My first book, Changing Zip Codes: Finding Community Wherever You're Transplanted is a devotional for movers, anecdotes pulled from 22 moves. I have a passion to help families move reminding them they will have a life and community at the other end.


    A foot loose and fancy-free freelancer for fourteen years I've now settled down to a regular gig as a reporter for the Mooresville Weekly in Davidson, North Carolina.

    Words define me....I love to speak to women's groups such as MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) and at national writers' conferences.

    Family defines me more. I have a great husband, four grown children and five grandchildren. As far as hobbies I love music and favor bluegrass. If prodded, I will produce a mandolin.

    My secret dream was to become a lounge singer. But realizing that dream is a little late to happen, I've found great contentment writing stories to encourage and inspire women. So actually I've chosen the better path.

    Not everything, not more than most, just, simply, what she could. Jesus said these words about Mary and He loved her for it.


    What if we lived our faith that way? What if we responded to the need before us — in the moment — with an everyday action? In the front yard, at the market, on an airplane. Elisa Morgan guides you to ways to begin serving right where you are.


    PLUS, during this program you'll hear from MOPS Speaker Coordinator, Jennifer Jivan, and Stonecroft Speaker Connector, Lori Hartin, about how to find and work with speakers including those from www.WomenSpeakers.com.
