Bible Promises for Parents of Children with Special Needs, by Amy E. Mason, is a wonderful book. It is a topical guide to God’s promises. It is designed to help those caring for children with special needs to find hope and comfort in God’s promises and stories in the Bible.
The topics selected in this book were selected to speak to the uniqueness of special needs parenting, including both the joys and the struggles. They are designed to encourage such parents and guide them into the presence of Jesus. The topics, arranged in alphabetical order, are all comprised of Bible verses and a short devotion. Some of the topics included are: abandonment, anger, attitude, bitterness, embarrassment, caring, eternity, guilt, loneliness, obedience, and shame.
This is a marvelous book. Each topic is short and easy to locate, including not just one, but several Bible verses. It is designed to help parents “be assured of his constant grace and love for both you and your child.” Because the author is the mother of a child with special needs, her understanding of the challenges are evident in this book.
I would recommend this book to anyone who has or works with a child with special needs.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
