Have you ever wished that you could have had a recorder running to capture all the wisdom from a spiritual giant in your life? Today’s guest has done the next best thing; he’s written down the common sayings of the man that taught him how to do ministry. Glenn Schroeder will share some of what he’s learned from his mentor and, in turn, we’ll learn too. It’s an around the breakfast table conversation on life and ministry to start your Friday on Ken and Deb in the Morning.
According to the CDC, 1 in 6 children have a developmental disability which means millions of moms and dads are parenting a special needs child. Friday we talk with Jamie Sumner who is on this journey and is out with the book she wished she could’ve read when she brought her special needs baby home. Jamie will share about her life with Charlie along with lessons she’s learned. She’ll share encouragement for parents with special needs children, and challenge all of us to slow down, even if it’s awkward, and let these kids know that they are seen and loved.
Jamie Sumner has written for the "New York Times" and the "Washington Post" along with many other publications. She is the author of the nonfiction book on motherhood, "Unbound," and the middle-grade novel,"Roll with It." She is also a mom to a son with cerebral palsy, and she writes and speaks about disability in literature. She and her family live in Nashville, Tenn.
