By Faith Episode #8: Sandra Peoples on Parenting a Child with Special Needs

Each week this season on "By Faith," I’m talking to someone who is walking forward by faith, many of them through difficult circumstances. We’re asking the question, “How does God meet us in our deepest, darkest pain and how does He turn that pain into beauty?”

Season One will continue through the end of May, with great conversations still to come. But I wanted to let you know about one special podcast I'll be recording to close out the season, called "Ask Me Anything."

This is where you come in! What questions have arisen from listening to previous guests? What questions do you have for me about life, ministry, friendship, or challenges I’ve faced? It’s called “Ask Me Anything” because you can literally ask me anything. I’ll grab a friend and we’ll record answers to your most pressing questions. You can submit your questions in the comment section below or through this form.

Today my guest on "By Faith" is Sandra Peoples. Sandra is a pastor’s wife and a mom of two boys, one of whom has been diagnosed with autism. In our conversation, I asked Sandra about parenting a child with special needs and how she is navigating his strengths and challenges with faith. Our conversation isn’t just for parents of kids on the autism spectrum. You’ll hear Sandra share what it’s like to find beauty and joy through a dream dying and a new one resurrecting in its place. You’ll hear her share ways you can support others who have kids with special needs. And finally, you’ll hear the truths that are getting her through.
