It's exciting to see new resources for caregiving parents popping up in many different formats. Here are 5 of my favorites. Enjoy!

New resources for caregiving parents and their kids are popping up with increasing frequency. Today I’d like to acquaint you with my top 5 new resources for caregiving parents as the new school year begins. With the kids back in school, maybe you’ll have time to check out a few!

  1. A Special Hope Podcast with host Sarah Broady. Sarah interviews caregiving parents, special needs ministry leaders, and more in her podcast that went live in the spring of 2019. You can find out how the podcast came into being in the guest blogger series (Part 1 and Part 2) she wrote for Different Dream. Like her Facebook page to get the scoop on new episodes as soon as they go live.
  2. The Hope Anew Podcast with Jonathan and Sarah McGuire. This podcast came into being in February of 2019. Like Sarah, the McGuires interview caregiving parents and disability ministry leaders from around the country. They will also unveil some unique offerings for special needs families this fall, so visit their website or Facebook page frequently for some exciting announcements.
  3. Unexpected Blessings by Sandra Wood Peoples. Sandra shares the unexpected blessings she and her husband Lee have experienced while raising a son with autism. The book will encourage your heart and perhaps change your perspective regarding your caregiving life. Sandra is leading an online book study this fall (2019), which began September 4. Participants can jump in any time by registering at her website. Scroll down the page to find the registration link.
  4. Hiya Moriah by Victoria Nelson. I love this book for many reasons, not the least of which is the way Victoria gives equal time to her daughter Moriah’s favorite rainbow dress, pink bow, curly hair, and her disability. To read more about Hiya Moriah, check out Victoria’s Different Dream author interview. The book is available on Amazon in paperback, hard cover, and Kindle formats.
  5. Sharing Love Abundantly in Special Needs Families: The 5 Love Languages® for Parents Raising Children with Disabilities by Dr. Gary Chapman and Jolene Philo. You didn’t expect me to leave this one off the list, did you? It’s included not because I helped write it, but because I have heard from reader after reader about how beneficial is is for them and their family members. It’s available in paperback and Kindle formats.

I encourage you to check out these new resources for caregiving parents and their kids. If you want to add a resource to the list, leave a comment below, along with a link to where it can be found. Happy reading and listening!
