Who Cares for the Caregiver?

Who cares? As we saw in the first blog, we were born to care according to God’s creation plan (Genesis 1:26-28). It is who we are and what our Lord designed us to do. That’s how we live out the image of God in which he created us. When we care for others, we act […]

Can I have an Easy Day Please?

Can I have an easy Day please?

I love the many amenities we have in America. As a mom and wife who is also employed full-time, I enjoy options when the day is busy. I love the ability to pick out my groceries online, and create a click-list for easy pickup. I know when I choose my pickup time, the groceries will […]

Do Not Fret

In My Utmost for His Highest, Oswald Chambers said, “It’s easy to say, ‘Fret not,’ but a very different thing to have such a disposition that you find yourself able not to fret. It sounds so easy to talk about…‘waiting patiently for Him’ until the nest is upset—until we live, as so many are doing, […]

The Traveling Bed

When you agree to help out with a ministry for differently abled people, you certainly get a chance to see God work in different, wonderful, unimaginable ways.

I’m just sitting down all the time.” I’d […]

The Table

Several years ago we thought that David’s Table might award a “table” to a church working to include our friends with disabilities into the worship, service, and community of their church. The first idea was to buy an older table and fix it up a little bit – maybe one that was not level and […]

Disability Makes a Church Strong

Each Sunday, as I stand on our elevated platform, I look out at a couple hundred faces of various ages, different shades of color, and a diversity of expressions, all bidding me to speak on behalf of God. But one face in particular captures my attention in a unique way every week. Her name is […]

And You Will Be Blessed

This is church for Max. He is: Welcomed. Wanted. Loved. Home. Indispensable. Church for my 27-year-old son with autism is pure unbridled worship, joy in the Lord, the fellowship of believers, and service unto Him. This is God’s design for His Church: “When you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the blind, the […]
