“Parents of kids with autism all too often find themselves isolated and alone – isolated from friends, family and church. The authors of Life on the Spectrum have experienced it all. Their stories of confronting and overcoming the challenges common to families impacted by disability, shared from a Christian worldview, provide hope, encouragement and inspiration. This book is a wonderful gift to anyone caring for a child with autism.”

“Thoughtfully and honestly finding and holding on to what is good, these vignettes will draw you in to the life experiences of families affected by special needs, with true stories of pain and celebration. This book will introduce the reader to real stories, giving us an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding, a reminder that each of us is not alone in this journey and inviting a greater compassion for families among us who have at times been misunderstood or rejected, even by the Church. I am grateful for the vulnerability revealed in these stories of life with a child with a disability.”

“Heartfelt, transparent, and moving, Life on the Spectrum is a devotional resource full of compassion and understanding for the parent of a child with autism. Written by parents of children on the spectrum, their stories share an honest struggle to find support and understanding for their children within the church, in their communities, and even with themselves in the midst of autism’s daily challenges. It is a book clearly meant to come along side those who need to know they are not alone and to remind them, regardless of the struggle, we share the same hope in God who is on the journey with us all.”
