On the show today I ask Andy Nixon, lead pastor of The Woodland United Methodist Church - The Loft some listener questions about God and Faith in families with special needs kids.
It’s a great conversation and I know you’ll enjoy it! Join us now to hear how it went!
Parenting special needs kids can make it hard to maintain a positive outlook. I'll share 3 ways you can keep it positive!
Tonight, we will be discussing needs.
Just what are needs?
Is what I think is a need really a need, or just a want?
What do I do when I have a need?
Why is it that the Church just does not seem to care about meeting needs anymore?
Needs Met is a Christian Non-profit 501c3 Ministry that looks for needs in our community and meets those needs through others that want to help meet those needs. Needs can be most anyting like;
services like BabySitting, Resumes, handman services etc...
God is our source for the meeting of needs, but God uses you and me to do His work.
If you have a need, please let us know and watch as God meets that need.
If you have the ability and desire to meet a need, God wants you! God can use you to meet the needs of others. But you have to let someone know that you are able and willing to meet needs. Offer up yor ability, resource, or talent that you have and watch as God uses it to help those in need.
Our special guest this week will be Dr. Katrina Sparks, both an educator and mother with personal and professional experience in Special Education. In this day and age, many of our young people are being classified with labels pertaining to special education, but no one looks at the impact the various labels have on families and educators alike. During this show we will get tips and first hand information from Dr. Sparks...tune in!
