Self-Care for the Special-Needs Mom (Master Post)

Self-care is a phrase that gets tossed around often, but for the special-needs mom, self-care is not optional. If we don’t care for ourselves, we can’t properly care for the children God has given us.

In October of 2015 I invited special-needs moms to take a journey with me. A journey to better health, better sleep, better organization, and better peace within and without. You can read the posts linked below. I pray they will encourage you to care for yourself.

  1. As a “mature mom” of a nearly 23 year old special needs child, I would like to join in! Parenting doesn’t stop–and I’m having a rough transition into the adult phase! There wasn’t alot of support when mine was young…do you mind if I come and glean now?
