Show Notes

Do you have a special needs child or know someone who is? Room at the Table: Encouraging Stories from Special Needs Families, is the brain-child of two mothers with special needs children. A son with cerebral palsy and a daughter with Down syndrome. They have co-authored a collection of real-life experiences from families, guardians, caregivers, and individuals with special needs. These stories of hardship, courage, and blessings will encourage, enlighten, and equip readers for ministry in their communities. Room at the Table also contains a light-hearted look at life through the eyes of these extraordinary individuals.

 

Stephanie and Starr’s vision is to increase awareness of the impact of mental and physical disabilities on families and caregivers, and promote understanding, diminish fears, and provide suggestions for ways people who know and love special needs individuals and families can minister to them.

 

Join us in the second part of this chat with Stephanie and Starr, about their journey to creating the book, their lives and inspirations and struggles.
