Experiencing God's Grace in a Special Needs Family

Sandra Peoples

In November 2010, Sandra Peoples took her son James to the pediatrician and received a life-changing diagnosis – her little boy had autism. Having noticed the warning signs in his behavior, the diagnosis brought a mixture of relief and pain, while also promising many difficulties ahead. But through the challenges, Sandra has learned so much about God’s grace and how to find joy through the simple moments of life.

In this interview, Sandra will give hope to parents of children with special needs. She’ll talk about how to find a supportive community, as well as provide advice for connecting with God during the difficult days.

Focus on the Family Vision

To cooperate with the Holy Spirit in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with as many people as possible by nurturing and defending the God-ordained institution of the family and promoting biblical truths worldwide.

Ultimately, we believe that the purpose of life is to know and glorify God through an authentic relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ. This purpose is lived out first within our own families then extended, in love, to an increasingly broken world that desperately needs Him.Through our radio broadcasts, websites, simulcasts, conferences, interactive forums, magazines, books, counseling and much more, Focus on the Family equips parents, children and spouses to thrive in an ever-changing, ever-more-complicated world.
