158. Faith, Healing, & Disability, ft. Amy Julia Becker (Mother/Author‪)‬ The Lucky Few

    • Kids & Family

It’s no secret that far too often, our loved ones with Down syndrome are seen as “problems” to be “fixed,” individuals in desperate need of “healing” or medicine.. whatever that might be. While we know this is NOT the case, our society’s love of “perfection,” prescriptions and productivity has ALL of us chasing unattainable goals of “success.” But what if we pursued healing instead?

Today we have Amy Julia Becker, a wife, mother, and author, on to discuss family, faith, and disability. And she’s well equipped to do so. Her new book “To Be Made Well” provides unique insight into personal, spiritual, and social healing from her perspective as a mother to a 16 year old child with Down syndrome. We’re so grateful she’s joined us to chat about the gift of having limitations, the intrinsic value of individuals with disabilities, holistic approaches to healing, + more.
