This week's (dis)Abilities and the Gospel book reviews

June 6th: Book Reviewer Sheila Staley from LDS Women's Book Review said,

"I was Primary President for four years. During those years I had the opportunity to work with many children, many of those with special need . .  There wasn’t a lot of information available to help me and my counselors to know how to help these children at the time. So when I read the book, (dis) Abilities and the Gospel: How to Bring People with Special Needs Closer to Christ, I knew that this book was inspired. As I read the book, I was so excited to see how Danyelle and Lynn have provided so much information for those working with people that have special needs. The wonderful thing about this book is that even though it is written for people in the LDS church, the ideas will work for anyone of any religion." Read the full review here. 


June 7th: Author & Book Review Tristi Pinkston said,

"With autism rates skyrocketing and other forms of cognitive disorders also increasing, this book is needed like never before. I applaud Lynn and Danyelle for their excellent work in this field and cannot tell you enough what a valuable resource you will find in this book."  Read the full review here. 

 June 9th: Special Needs Mom & Blogger Tamera Westhoff said,

"I completely LOVE this book!  I think there should be at least one in every stake and ward building to have as a reference!  It's perfect for parents, teachers, leaders equally!  It even helps for not only those with (dis)abilities but those that are "typical."  Fantastic!  I like the short chapters with tons of information and the way the coauthors work together to talk in their forte."
