Real Families, Real Needs

Every family struggles from time to time. But when it comes to disabilities, the day-to-day trials become all the more real. Concerns such as, “Who will care for my child if I were to pass away?” or “How will this diagnosis affect my marriage?” are just a few of those experienced by special needs families. Thankfully, though, we can find answers in God’s Word — and in His community of believers. It’s why we’ve written the book, “Real Families, Real Needs,” so that struggling families can learn from other special needs families how God has met them in times of hardship. This book addresses the needs of all family members including parents, grandparents, and siblings — providing guidance and encouragement through real-life stories and applications. Want to meet the families highlighted in this resource? Check out this video and then make sure to tune in to our radio programs below to learn more. And don’t forget to visit our store to order your copy of “Real Families, Real Needs.”
