Our family has been entrusted and gifted with a child who has special needs. After the initial redirection of emotions and fears we have settled in and accepted that instead of a "why me?" attitude,…Continue

Our Magic Clothes Dryer...

I have been gone a long time from the 48 Days community. Shortly after attending a Write to the Bank session at the Sanctuary in the Fall of 2011 we found out we were expecting our 5th child. As the pregnancy continued we were confronted with the fact that our son shared the same genetic disorder that our now 13 year old son has. It is not hereditary, it does not "ever" come in multiples in a family...but, God had different plans for our family! My time of pursuing my passion of writing a book…See More

Making yourself grumpy?

As we were all hanging out at home one day this week (a rare occurrence lately in our house) we heard a familiar sound coming from Matthew. Having a child who is non-verbal can be challenging but we have learned to identify his sounds almost as if they were an assigned ringtone or notification tone on our phone. He was annoyed...in most cases it means that Sarah Anne, a four year old, has done something or taken something or is just generally in his peripheral space. Theresa called out the…See More

Do you know where you are?

June has been a busy month! I was able to go on my annual fishing trip with my good friend Brian, we celebrated Isaac's first birthday, we celebrated Hannah's high school graduation and celebrated Matthew's twelfth birthday (we will skip that I had a birthday earlier in the month). I appreciate the break in writing but always eager to get back in the routine of sharing our lives with all of you. You inspire us as much as we inspire you!…See More

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
Have read and enjoyed Dan Miller's materials for a few years. He has inpired me to pursue dreams of being independant and enjoying life and work to the fullest.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Full time employed At a large church in Worship Arts and facilitating Special Events. Another 15-20% of my income is generated in a side business.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I have an interest in helping other families who are like ours. We are a homeschooling family of 6 who have a special needs son with a genetic disorder. I have started an inspirational blog and would like to expand that into speaking opportunities as well as compile the blog stories into a published book.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
To be a man of integrety, and a follower of Jesus. When it comes to business, I have spent too many years wondering "what if" and placed many ideas on the shelf. I want to break that cycle and do what God has created me to do. A passion for writing and helping families like our own.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I am a "big ideas" person who juggles multiple projects. I like to create things in my mind and then build them. I am an encourager and delight in inspiring people.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
http://lessonsfrommatthew.com
If you have a product or service to promote (now or in the near future) this is your shot to state it! Say all you'd like:
I am a scenic/set designer and carpenter...I have been able to combine my creative/design background and mold it together with my construction background. I would like to train other churches how to inspire their own volunteers to create and build their own theme rooms, sets and stage presentations. My neighbors are alway intrigued by what is happening in my shop. 8 ft. ants one week, 10 ft. rockets for a vacation bible school and on it goes. I plan on growing my blog site and turning those posts into a published book. I would also enjoy speaking about our experiences as a family who deals with a special needs child.

Hi Kevin, It was great getting to chat with you at the WTTB workshop. Joel Boggess, who oversees the Finding Your Voice group and who was my life coach this summer, had asked if I could share the names of a few folks from the workshop, as he was interested in asking a few questions about your experience. I shared your name with him, as I thought you had much of interest to share. Enjoy the conversation!

Thank you! I have a guy here working on some computer stuff and will see if we can talk one night when it is a little quieter. Look forward to learning those things. I will also spend some time looking up the blog addresses. Look forward to catching up soon!Thanks, Tom

Hello Kevin, we are both developing this blog thing. I am confused about one thing. Do you see how we can see the blogs of members that have blogs like we do at wordpress? I have opened each persons page in "blogging your passion" and can't see where to go to see this blog or this passion. I got your link off of your forum question but how do we get it from people's pages. I am sure I must be missing something here.
Thanks!

Good luck to you, Kevin. Families so often love to hear from colleagues who are walking in their shoes. I think you will find this site a place to gain much insight and many friends.
Sounds like you are an example of ONE MORE SERVING
