Get Your Joy Back by Laurie Wallin Book Tour and Book Review

 
 
 
 
About the book:
An invitation and a promise for weary Christian parents of special needs kids from a parent who's been there.

"It isn't the long day of monitoring a child's precarious health or being hypervigilant about her mood and mental health challenges that weighs parents down; it's the wishing that things were different. . . . Resentment, not the intense care they must provide their child, is the parents' greatest stressor and source of pain." ---Laurie Wallin

Parents of specials needs children are exhausted. They've done all the research, consulted all the experts, joined support groups, gotten counseling, fought for the best life for their children. Often just caring for their children's needs and attempting to maintain a home maxes out parents' mental, emotional, and spiritual reserves.

Laurie Wallin knows firsthand the difficulties of this journey. With Get Your Joy Back, she steps forward to make a bold, audacious claim: in the midst of this long-term, intense task, it is still possible to have an abundant life, full of joy. The key to radically changing daily life and restoring joy to the weary is forgiveness. Wallin gives parents a lifeline to find that restoration, pulling them back to shore when they feel like they're drowning.

This book is full of practical, biblical insights and strategies to shed the resentments that leave Christian special-needs parents themselves spiritually, emotionally, and socially drained. Wallin meets readers right where they are, sugar coating nothing, but addressing issues with honesty, humor, and---above all---hope.

My review;
It is very hard for any parent or caregiver of a disabled person to be able to not feel as if they are unable to be or to allow themselves to be happy. In this book the reader is told about the idea that you must also take care of yourself and not feel upset or guilty about the problems you are facing everyday. I believe that it is a great book for anyone to read who needs a little uplifting in their daily life and their struggles.  I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book by Litfuse Publicity Group and all opinions are my own.
