We recently finished speaking for a Familylife Weekend to Remember and seemed to hear a common thread from others about what they heard from us as we spoke about our family and son with special needs. Several wrote us notes, private messages on FB, texts, and this one hand written note, “Your vulnerability and transparency about Joey was the pivotal moment in this conference. It’s not about feeling bad for you (as parents), it’s about being inspired to receive and love unconditionally!!”
