Join Vangie and special guest Kelli Anderson as they discuss "Sticking with Special Needs Parents." Hear an insider's perspective about what can make parents of children with special needs lack trust in people - even the people they desperately want to trust! Hear strategies for meaningful communication, key elements in ministry to parents, and what every pastor should know about ministry to this growing population.
A lifelong Christian and mother of three children (two with Asperger’s Syndrome), Kelli has also published her first book about her experience in Divine Duct Tape and is a regularly featured writer for an award-winning daily blog for special needs parents, Not Alone. She also produces a weekly podcast, Divine Duct Tape, and works in special needs ministry through her online forum and Masterpiece Ministries at First Baptist Church of Geneva.
With the help of her amazingly patient husband of 23 years and three teens, Kelli continues to pursue her lifelong quest to answer the question, “Why” and sometimes, "Why not?" Kelli and her family live in the far western Chicago suburb of St. Charles, Illinois.
