Disabilities and Special Needs

Between the worry, the doctor's appointments, and the thousand small challenges of everyday life, it's easy to feel overwhelmed and exhausted. 

Are you disabled in some way? How has God used this in your life and in the lives of others? How are you dealing with that disability right now? How can the church better minister to those with special needs? 

This morning we hear from Jolene Philo, author (with Dr. Gary Chapman) of Sharing Love Abundantly in Special Needs Families: The 5 Love Languages® for Parents Raising Children with Disabilities. 

Plus, some fun photo captions and related stories for this news story: Alligator scales fence to enter Navy base in Florida. | Facebook photo link
