Item description for Finding God in Autism: A Forty Day Devotional for Parents of Autistic Children by Kathy Medina...
Overview "Finding no books with Biblical references to help her face the challenges of raising a child with special needs, Kathy did intense research to bring back her hope. Listening to the many preachers on TBN and doing Bible studies, she studied Scriptures to help her understand God's plan for her child's life. Doctors and teachers offered no hope and told her to brace herself for the long, dark road she was now on. Raised in a Christian home and active in her local church, she knew in her heart that the God she serves is a God of mercy. Here are Scriptures to restore your hope, strengthen your faith and show you that God has a plan for your child's life. Scriptures to promise that God is listening to your every prayer, that He is watching the work and efforts being done on behalf of your children. Scriptures that will empower you to be strong and steadfast, reminding you that with God, nothing is impossible. "

READ THIS BOOK !!!! May 8, 2008
This book has opened my eyes, renewed my faith and brought me even closer to GOD. Reading this book for me was a journey-an eye opening journey-that was well worth the time and effort that I put into it. I saw God in a new and exciting way and I was well aware of His presence in my life and in my son's life. This book gave me a fresh perspective on every day life and reminded me that God is ever present, He's faithful and that His word is true. I would recommend this book to every parent of a child with autism. AWESOME !!!!
Finding God in Autism Feb 8, 2008
This is a well written guide for parents of children with Autism who are searching for answers and guidance in our faith. Although I do not adhere to the interventions the authors have prescribed to, I find that the prayers are helpful for me to understand what my "mission" in life is. It has also helped me to better understand my child and my students - I have come to understand their needs more and find that I am not as stressed or lonely as I once felt. It is a "God-send".
A Voice in the Wilderness- Jan 18, 2008
I bought this book hoping for something to renew my faith; something to "band-aide" over the hurt I was suffering spiritually. What I found was an amazingly familiar story from another mother of a wonderful child with Autism. My husband and I were brought to tears as we read the preface- we are working through these 40 days together now. I highly recommend this book to parents and caregivers of these wonderful children!Finding God in Autism: A Forty Day Devotional for Parents of Autistic Children
A nice Prayer Journal Aug 7, 2007
The author may be planting a hope in some parents that can crush those who are not strong in their faith in God. It is common for parents who just had their child diagnosed with Autism, grasp at anything to "fix" their child. While I do believe that God can Heal or "fix" people I have learned that God is God and has a plan for all of us even if we don't agree, or give Him permission. As you read this book and even pray through it, please remember, God loves us and knows the big picture for our lives. The diagnosis of Autism is NOT a death sentence, only a new experience.
Better Than Expected May 7, 2007
I have been profoundly changed by Kathy Medina's 40 day devotional. It comes out of her own heartbreak in discovering her son's diagnosis. As a parent of an autistic/multi-disabled child, I feel a kinship with her in this "special needs"/therapy world where I don't really want to be. How nice to have a parent deliver a mixture of hope and heartbreak in a very humble and relevant way. We may not have all the answers, but I am guessing that God's heart breaks as much as ours and just because our kids have some disabilities, doesn't mean they can't give glory to God. Kathy reminds us of this over and over again.
