Call me crazy, but I often hear God's gentle whisper while in nature. Join me on the LOMAH instagram page as I question, see, wrestle, and find His truth during our journey to the Land Of Milk And Honey (LOMAH).
Today I met so many beautiful families, saw old friends, and learned from a slew of inspiring folks working hard for the I/DD community. So thankful for each and every soul. 🎤🎤🎤
(I also grabbed some future interviews for upcoming episodes on #advocacy and medical issues coming this winter. Get caught up on past episodes by searching LOMAH on your favorite podcasting app or online at LOMAH.org)

Trick or Treat?
Working on the #iep on Halloween.
Swipe right for photos of a morning filled with reminders to root us in hope. I just did a 24 hour getaway w 2 special needs moms. We had meaningful and deep conversation including why, does it seem, our children have to be the sacrifice that allows others to grow? This conversation pointed to WHO is and was the ultimate sacrifice, nailed to the cross. The next morning I do a praise walk, ascribing to God who I understand Him to be. It concludes w me standing on a ridge, arms spread wide declaring Him the Alpha and Omega. The beginning and the end. Upon leaving the trail and heading back to the house, I see the above (swipe right for photo). Alpha & Omega, nailed to a tree, just like our ultimate sacrifice.

The LOMAH podcast was just named as a “podcast you should be listening to” by the media and news channel SoapBox.
Since we are so lame keeping this IG account, subscribe on the Stitcher, Google Play, or Apple Podcasting apps. (Next week starts a new series on safety.)
What feels like a dead end may actually be the beginning of an abundant life filled with more light and more growth than you could ever foresee.
I always thought it was myself with trained educators and therapists who were best equipped to set goals for my daughter. I was leaving out an important group, her peers with disabilities and what they know about achieving. Read about a powerful lesson in advocacy. (Pictured: my daughter on skis...unbelievable)

It's good to occasionally pause and see where we have come from and where we are headed on our journey to the Land of Milk and Honey (LOMAH)

What is holding you up? "Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand"
