The month of May is Williams Syndrome Awareness month. Williams syndrome is a rare genetic disorder caused by the deletion of 26–28 genes on the 7th chromosome. It can lead to developmental, cognitive, and physical disabilities. Stacia McKeever, one of our writers here at Answers in Genesis, has a son with Williams syndrome.
In honor of Williams Syndrome Awareness month, I thought I would share part of Stacia’s talk from Embrace, our popular Answers for Women’s conference held two years ago. In the talk, Stacia shares about her son’s Williams syndrome diagnosis, speaks on disabilities, and discusses how we, the body of Christ, can help disabled individuals and their caretakers see God’s goodness.
I encourage you to order Stacia’s full presentation from our online store. One in five Americans is dealing with some kind of disability. Are you and your church ready to show God’s grace and goodness to these individuals who are fearfully and wonderfully made in the image of God and to their families? This powerful presentation will help you know what (and what not!) to say and how you can offer practical help and hope to disabled people or their caregivers.
You can order “Disabilities: Finding Hope in God’s Goodness and Truth” as a DVD or download, individually or together with the other presentations from the Embrace conference. Visit our online store to order your copy today.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
