About The Spiritual Art of Raising Children with Disabilities Judson Press (February 15, 2014)
Raising a child with a disability is hard work. Where do you go for solace, for rest, for refreshment, and for renewed joy?
Bolduc uses the metaphor of the mosaic to life as parents of children with disabilities. She shares her story and narrative from other parents on rearranging the fragmented and chaotic pieces of your family into a perfectly whole and beautiful work of art. Readers will also learn how the spiritual disciplines can help you recognize God’s presence in your life and regain the balance we all need.
With honesty and humor, wisdom and wit, she invites the caregivers of children with disabilities to steep themselves in Scripture and self-reflection.
