GIVE A COPY OF THIS LOVELY LITTLE BOOK TO YOUR HOUSE OF WORSHIP TO SHARE WITH FOLKS WHO WANT TO SHOW THEIR LOVE,   2 comments

I just posted this review of “Now to Him”on amazon.com

May 27, 2017

This is a beautiful little book. Forty-five pages of honesty, love, and faith. “A Prayer of Hope through one family’s struggle with autism” just as the author says it is.

Yes, people who are struggling with the same problem may find comfort, but my hope is that people who have been spared will read it for kinder understanding of families faced with the issue. To know how one can give loving support just by avoiding judgmental criticism. To think twice before giving the dirty look when the family of an autistic child tries to enjoy an outing in a restaurant, for example.

This is a book for people who want to spread love in ways that cost nothing more than understanding.

I am donating my copy to my church library, with the hope that those serving the library will find a public way to encourage parishioners to stop by for a quick read, or even to sign it out.

Truly a book about love and faith that encourages the expression of faith-filled love.

In fact, I’d be very happy to see it ordered for the libraries in all houses of worship for those who seek ways to share their love.

  1. Speaking as one who has had friends with autistic children and has provided support to adults with autism, depending on where on the spectrum a person may be, many present unbelievable challenges to families that can go on for as long as the parents live. As a person grows and the autism does not go away the stress can consume the lives of many. A moment of tolerance, a stare averted, an internal expression of gratitude that we are not subject to the many challenges of this overwhelming problem can be most welcome. Further, those who are not so severely affected are some of the brightest and most able to assume jobs that are too difficult for the rest of us. They are to be treasured for their strengths. Church libraries? Of course. But non-profit agencies that include the support of people with autism should also be included as well as public libraries.For all of us, acceptance of our differences can be so affirming.
