Reviews - What do customers think about Sowing My Tears, Reaping His Joy?
I really loved this Christ-Centered Book! Jan 16, 2009
I am so pleased that Marion chose to write a book about coping with Autism from a faith-based perspective. As the mother of a child that is autistic, I could identify with her emotional pain. With so much emphasis being placed on the challenges of the child, it’s sometimes easy to forget that parents are trying to cope, too. As I read, Sowing My Tears, Reaping His Joy, I was reminded that the Lord will never leave or forsake me. Marion also reminded me that Jesus Christ in my life is bigger than the disability of Autism and that the Lord will help me. He only needs my cooperation. This was an easy to read book. I also loved the prayers for special need families and the listing of disability specific resources in the book’s appendix. I look forward to reading more of your books!
Sowing My tears Nov 29, 2007
As a person who has stuggled with a "problem" you can't fix, I can empathize with what the author went through. I like the fact that she offers no clinical answers for autism because in life we are not always going to be able to make our situations better, we can only allow our situations to make us better people. I think the authour clearly shows us how to do that. She shows us the hope, love and acceptance she has for her daughter, never denying the painful fact that no matter how she longs for it, the physical healing may never occur. This book is real and offers real thoughs from a real person, who has a real realtionship with God! That is refreshing!
GREAT BOOK ! Sep 3, 2005
Marion is a mother who shares about her experience of being a parent of a child with autism. I liked her book because although she tells her story from a faith-based perspective, she does not preach to me. She simply inspires me. Being a mother myself, of a child with a disability, it is nice to know that I am not alone. It's also nice to know that she acknowledges the importance of God in the journey of raising a child with special needs. Some Christian authors are so heavenly minded that they are no earthly good. This is not the case with Marion. After she shares, she shows that she cares. In the appendix, she lists many resources that provide access to technical information for disorders such as autism, epilepsy, cerebral palsy, etc. All in all, she provides her readers with inspiration and information. I am looking forward to her next work!
Perfect Peace whose mind is stayed on Thee Aug 16, 2005
This is a refreshing Christ-centered story that empowers those of us who feel so alone with our children with speical needs. Who among us has not sown countless tears for our children? This enlightened story not only encouraged me greedatly but also reminded me that Christ is still on the throne. I am thankful to have found such a powerful testimony.
This book is a must read, I read it twice! Aug 6, 2005
I really liked Sowing My Tears, Reaping His Joy because it was inspirational. And I am glad that the author chose to address her journey of coming to terms with her daughter's disability, from both a maternal and Christian perspective. As I read about Marion and her husband coping, I was strengthened to cope in my own life. The book also gave me more of an understanding about autism and the challenging behaviors that come with it. It was good to see her daughter progress to the point that she could win blue ribbons at the Special Olympics. All in all, the book reminded me that no matter what challenges I face, that there is a brighter side through faith in God. I recommend Sowing My Tears, Reaping His Joy to anyone facing challenging times. I give the book five stars!
Focus is on faith not autism Jul 29, 2005
I was looking for a story of a family dealing with autism. This book does not focus on the autism. The focus is on the family's faith while dealing with a child with a disability not the disability itself. This book barely even tells of the autism or live with autism. The book shows how the family turns to faith and how this faith is present in every aspect of their lives. This book was far to spiritual for my liking. I do not recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about autism. I felt it was a waste of my time. I personally would seek spiritual guidance elsewhere as well.
