DSC_0040Faith: It is not just what I believe, it is wrapped up in the entirety of who I am.  This it where I share how God is shaping me to be all that He has planned.  Sometimes it is a painful lesson and other times filled with the joy of revelation.  Please join me in the discussion and devotionals that we might cling to the Creator who holds our moments in his mighty hands.


Food:  I have come to a place of peace with food.  It is beautiful and delicious and is the fuel for the journey on this earth.  My goal is always to make it as healthy, nourishing and tasty as my knowledge and my budget allows.   I don’t have fancy gadgets and endless kitchen time but I hope that the recipes I do share will become some of your favorites too.

DSC_0367Autism:  In 2004, my youngest son was diagnosed with Autism at just 24 months old.  His Autism in on the severe side of the spectrum.  In 2013, my oldest son was also diagnosed with Special Needs, including Aspergers.   I won’t lie to you… This journey is hard.  My husband and I, along with our daughter are learning to love and support our boys in ways that are sometimes challenging. As I share our triumphs and our pain, I hope that it may encourage others who may be traveling this journey along with us as well as bring understanding and insight to those who are not.  


Art: I have been dipping my toes in the art of photography for some years now.  To be honest, the skills needed to master all the digital technology still seems to elude me.  But I love to create what I can with my simple tools and limited knowledge.  I hope to share the beauty that I see in a way that inspires you to find more beauty in your life.

  1. Dear Rhonda,

    We too have two sons with severe autism, 19 and 21. They are our oldest of now 8 children. We just brought home our youngest he spent 1 month in the NICU. He was born at 34 weeks. He was our 5 the premature baby. We also have two more children waiting for us in heaven. About two months ago our second oldest had his first grand mal seizure. Five years ago we took him to a neurologist to investigate seizures. The neurologist was less than helpful. Now we are in a new state and new doctors facing a probable diagnosis of Lennox- Gastaut Syndrome. It does not sound good. It would explain a lot of things, but not provide any answers as to how to help our one son. Our sons look so much like your son.
    Oh, how I feel like I’m going through a second grieving. God has been bringing those same verses back to me lately that I saw on your posts about autism from Isaiah. Our sons are bigger than me. They’re over 6 ft. They are both severe and now both pretty much nonverbal. Our second oldest has lost so much over the last seven years. Just nice to hear from someone else who has walked the same road and understands what you are going through. Don’t have anyone else who does…except the Lord. Still nice to talk to someone with “skin on.”
