Autism Family,

I have looked for years to find something that would cross Autism and Spirituality together
in one book.  I know there are many out there, but this one is a devotional-type with a 40
day outline.  I especially like this one due to the scripture reference and the
encouragement provided on the journey to PEACE.  It describes a Means to a Way, the
means being scripture reading and prayer to a way of PEACE and HOPE.  This mother has
done a great job with her outline and personal stories in this book.  Don’t get me wrong,
Autism is very complicated and can have extreme variations from one child to another, but
we have all walked in the same shoes at one time or another.  I find that encouragement
and HOPE is what keeps us going.  This is a “Right Foot Tool”, gets your day started out
right and gives you guidance and a great reference “The Bible” to keep your thoughts.  I
personally could not have stayed on the journey without my spiritual relationship and the
encouragement and HOPE that it has brought to my family.  I have learned to have Faith,
Trust, and Obey the word of GOD.  It can bring you PEACE when you don’t know what the
next piece in your puzzle will be.  I hope this will help someone along your journey know
that you are not walking alone and there is HOPE!!  It is something that I wish I had found
years ago, but better late than never!!!

Although we may not have on the same pair right now, we have walked in the….
