Do you find yourself constantly searching for hope? Do you wonder why bad things happen? Are you searching for answers but don't know where to turn?
We all need God in our lives. We need Him for support, answers and motivation. Above all, we need Him as our friend. The one we turn to first with questions, concerns and prayers.
As mothers of children with autism, we know it's tough to stay spirtually connected. We pray. We go to church. But beyond that, it's tough. We barely have time to fit in all the different therapies, grocery shopping, cleaning, working, spending time with our husbands, coupon clipping, feeding the dogs, remembering to give supplements, toilet training and oh yeah, showering. To fit in a Bible Study into our crazy schedule is almost impossible.
That's why we've created Spectrum Spirit. We decided to start an online Bible Study to support each other and lift each other up when we need it the most.
Here's the plan....we'll choose a book to read and assign weekly readings. We'll meet back here every Wednesday night to discuss what we've read, give our thoughts and what we've gotten out of our readings. Then, under the comments section, we ask for you all to share anything you'd like. How the weekly reading touched you...How you were able to take what you've learned from the reading and apply to your life....most importantly how it helped you as a mom of a child with autism.
We believe that through this blog and by covering each other in prayers, God is going to do some amazing things.
Our first reading is Just Enough Light for the Step I'm On by Stormie Omartian. Spend the next week reading the first chapter. Write down any thoughts, questions or comments. We'll "meet" back here on Wednesday April 8th to share.
We look forward to getting to know every one!
Chrissy, Jessica & Nicole
