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!
Parenting special needs kids can make it hard to maintain a positive outlook. I'll share 3 ways you can keep it positive!
If you are one of the 15% of families in the U.S. with a special needs child or children, you know all too well the stress and strain and JOY of challenged parenting. Our guest, Adrienne Bashista, is the co-editor of and contributor to the book Easy to Love but Hard to Raise: Real Parents, Challenging Kids, True Stories and she also runs the blog (easytolovebut.com) and Facebook group by the same name. She is also the managing editor of the blog A Mom's View of ADHD (adhdmomma.com) and has written about parenting children with invisible special needs for multiple publications, print and on-line. Along with Penny Williams, she is one of the founders of the Happy Mama Conference and Retreat, a weekend for moms of kids with "invisible" special needs, held in Raleigh, NC. She is also the director of Families Affected by Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, and is a trainer for caregivers of people with FASD.
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.
