Please join me this Sunday January 10th, 2015, at 4:00 pm PST, as I welcome Debra Evans to the program. We will be discussing how to provide support for both special needs children and their families.
Debra Eileen Evans is the proud mom of a seven year old boy with exceptional needs. Mrs. Evans is a dedicated advocate and leader of programs and initiatives benefiting children and families with special needs. She most recently served as a parent team member for the District Validation Review, conducting comprehensive reviews of school site level compliance with special education laws, regulations and District policies and procedures for the Los Angeles Unified School District.
In November of 2012 Mrs. Evans founded MNO Southern California, a support group for parents of children with special needs. The group offers regular opportunities for parents to socialize, share resources and support each other. In addition to an online forum, monthly dinners, a quarterly speaker series, and an annual retreat for moms, the group offers opportunities for their children to socialize with picnic play dates, special events and planned field trips. The group has grown from its original four members to over two hundred members in 2016.

Martial Arts is a wonderful extracurricular activity for those with special needs, especially kids with Autism or other sensory-processing issues. The repetition, the familiar curriculum, the familiar faces at each class....each aspect of martial arts allows those with special needs to shine and participate on par with classmates.
Join Restita and Bob as they talk about martial arts for special needs....specifically the Autism Spectrum, and we want to hear from parents with kids that have sensory processing difficulties, teachers/paraeducators, therapists, and most of all, we want to hear from martial arts instructors who offer classes or programs for special needs kids.

Please join us as we discuss the very important subject of special needs children. We will take a look at not only their challenges, but of those who are charged with caring for them, educating them, advocating for them, and protecting their rights. We are hopeful to create not only a dialogue, but begin a network of support and resources, as well as a better understanding of these precious and gifted human beings.

Special Needs Planning Issues and Answers
This is one area where experience is NOT the best teacher...it is simply the most brutal.
We all know someone, whether it be in our own family or someone close to us, that is dealing with the myriad of issues surrounding the care of a special needs person.
My special guest for this show, Juliane Dillon, Outreach Coordinator for the Kennedy-Donovan Center - Cape Cod Community Services, will help us explore some of the situations, challenges and solutions that are available to special needs families, as well as some of the key roles professionals in this field can help with that are often not discussed in the normal course of training.
The show will cover:
The challenges faced when a child turns 20 and 22.
Do I need a Special Needs Trust?
Why inheritances are a potential time-bomb for benefits?
Should social service professionals be aware of financial issues?
Can I get life insurance for my special needs child or adult family member?
How can I get the help I need from the agencies we use?
and as many other issues as time will allow...
It is critically important this show be heard by as many people as possible to help get this invlauable information out to those that need it.
FYI, Juliane Dillon can be reached at 508-385-6019 ext. 125 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How can we receive anything from the LORD if we don't trust him. Your needs come from him, but you don't trust him enough to supply them, so you go ahead of him and mess everything up. Thus causing you to have to wait later instead of being able to go forward. Stop delaying GOD wait on him.

Today is the day it all began! One year ago we aired the first Love, Trust & Pixie Dust radio show...and you all have stayed with Leslie every step of the way! Thank you.
Love, Trust & Pixie Dust Radio began by setting the groundwork for what was to come. We shared exactly what the show with the “cute” name was all about. Leslie asked you not to be fooled by the name—that you just may be surprised by the show’s depth—and those are exactly the comments we have received from you over the past year.
If you missed the first episode, listen in and learn why Leslie has been so gung-ho to share a message of love and trust with you, and more importantly, why you should even care. Although the purpose of the first episode was to establish a foundation, strap on your seatbelt! Get ready to turn everything you ever thought you knew about trust completely upside down!
Pastor Craig Johnson is the Senior Director of Family Ministry at Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church, which draws 40,000 weekly worshipers to its Houston, Texas arena, developed a ministry in 2008 for families with special needs children who find it challenging to attend church on a regular basis. The Houston location, which consists of an educational room, a physical therapy room and a sensory room, serves more than 300 special needs families every week. The program also provides spiritual therapy and a full Christian curriculum. The Champions Club was inspired and launched by Pastor Craig, who has an autistic son.

Today I will share my journey from being brought up as a strict catholic with 18 years of catholic education. I'll talk about how I bought the dogma 100%. I never questioned "the church". Then I'll share the one question that changed my life. And finally we will discuss what I have learned along my journey of learning how to trust my Creator. Join me live so you can join in our discussion.
How do you think it would affect your life if your father tried to kill you? I was contemplating that the other day while reading the story of Abraham and Isaac. We think about the faith it took for Abraham to be willing to sacrifice his promised son but what did it take for Isaac to actually be that sacrifice?
I notice he didn't try to run or rebel against being placed on the altar. I also notice that it was Isaac who carried the wood for the burnt offering as they proceeded up the mountain. If he thought about it, it must have added insult to injury to be so used participating in his own demise.
Well I think that just as Abraham trusted God when the Lord told him to sacrifice his son, Isaac also trusted his own father Abraham. That's quite a big thing and in the end it was a trust well founded. Just before the knife fell on Isaac God stopped it.
"'Do not stretch out your hand against the lad, and do nothing to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me.'"(Genesis 22:12) I'm sure that as Abraham heard those words, Isaac heard them too. What a relief; his trust was not in vain.
Don't you imagine that incident was pivotal to the rest of Isaac's life? Through it God's covenant promises were planted from father to son and on down through succeeding generations. God's promises were so powerful they even come down to us.
If you are called on to trust God in a big way, expect a BIG outcome.

Join us on Love, Trust & Pixie Dust Radio as we speak to certified life and parenting coach, Amy Egan.
