Dyslexia

Part of my ministry as a mom includes homeschooling a child with dyslexia.  It is not always easy — in fact, it is hardly ever easy — but I am continually amazed at the creativity and sensitive spirit of my child with dyslexia.  I know that he is exactly who God made him to be, and I love every part of him!

Every once in awhile I write about our journey with dyslexia.  I want to share what I have learned with others who find themselves in similar situations and I pray that my articles on dyslexia will provide encouragement to those who need it most!

Did you just find out your child has dyslexia?  Read this first:

And, in case you didn’t know, my son and I wrote a book together about his dyslexia.  We wrote it, hoping that it would encourage kids just like him!  You can find out more information about that book here.
