Ep. 4.6 : Loving our families who are raising kids with special needs

As we focus this month on loving what God loves, I’m so excited to shine some much-deserved light on our precious families raising children with special needs.  Nichole Huggins, Director of Special Needs at Prestonwood Church in Dallas, Texas, joins us as both a mom to a son with special needs as well as one directly engaged in church ministry in this area.  Today’s podcast is not just for the families in the trenches each day raising children with special needs, but it’s also a much-needed word for those of us who are called to walk alongside and support these families.

About Pardon the Mess

Parenting can be messy. There’s lots of amazing moments followed by some really hard times that make it easy to be discouraged if we aren’t careful. Pardon the Mess tackles parenting with honest discussions about the ups and downs of parenting, and the lessons God has taught us along the way. It’s fun, it’s real, it’s biblical, and it’s for everyone!
