About Sandra

Sandra Peoples (M. Div, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary) is one of the leading voices in the special-needs community. She is the editor for Key Ministry and is the author of two popular self-published books: Speechless: Finding God’s Grace in My Son’s Autism and Held: Learning to Live in God’s Grip. She also founded Special-Needs Parents Appreciation Month (which is celebrated in August).

Sandra’s newest book, Unexpected Blessings: The Joys and Possibilities of Life in a Special-Needs Family, released in 2018 and is available everywhere books are sold.

Sandra and her husband Lee have two sons, one with level three autism. She also has a sister with Down syndrome, which gives her a life-long perspective on being in a special-needs family.

Her goal in writing is to support and encourage special-needs parents so they never feel alone on this journey.
