About the Book

Wondering why me and how the Bible could have anything to do with you and your child with special needs? Jen takes you on a journey through the scriptures to discuss tough topics such as brokenness, suffering, and disabilities. The path of a special-needs parent is fraught with challenges. Beautifully Broken searches Old and New Testaments alike for signs of God's hope and healing for the painful journey many parents of special needs children find themselves on. As the parent of a child with profound disabilities, Jen has had many difficult challenges on her own journey, leading her to pursue deeper the topics of being made in the image of God, providence, sovereignty, and grief. Travel through this eight-week study and dig deeper into the truths found in God's word. Challenge yourself to see your struggles in a new light, and find peace for your journey, with the confidence that your child has been fearfully and wonderfully made.

About the Author

Jennifer is wife to Shawn and mom to six, two of whom live with Jesus. Her surviving twin son has significant multiple disabilities. His rare form of cerebral palsy is the most impacting, requiring total care; he is non verbal and non mobile but these labels don’t really define him. She also cares for her dad who was diagnosed with a rare form of dementia in his forties. She has run the special needs ministry at her church, leads a support group for special needs parents, and travels to former Soviet Belarus to help run camps for orphans, children and adults with special needs, and their families.
