CHALLENGED HOPE, outlines my struggles and challenges as a single Grandmother raising mentally disabled Grandchildren in the city of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. For many years, my focus has been consistently upon tasks involved with raising disabled grandchildren, and so the time available for me to investigate possible resources related to their needs was minimal. Not until the children were teens did I discover services which could optimally benefit us as a family. So, I began this blog with the intention of sharing my experiences with mental disabilities and to help other caregivers who may be facing similar challenges and want information on services at their fingertips.
Please see my other blogs:
While raising my mentally disabled grandchildren, I needed an interest that would afford me distraction from my task, but allow me to be present in the home as needed and so, as I love to write, I created a fictional whodunit titled “I, Gossip“. The story emphasizes one of the churches’ sins, and how cruel and destructive gossip can be within church circles. But don’t lose hope because, as you read, you will discover God sees all things and can set on the right path even the most venomous sinner, who is simply a shadow of ourselves!
Despite all the challenges I have faced while raising my mentally disabled grandchildren, as I love God, I purposely allocated time to study the Bible. Bible Prophecy fascinates me and through prayer and God’s guidance I learned how to interpret the topic, especially the Prophecies found in the Books of Daniel and Revelation. Despite the popular opinion within Christian circles that the end times surround the European Union and the Roman Catholic Church, this is not what the Bible predicts. To discover what the Bible truly says please read my findings on Prophecy. I think you will be surprised! I welcome your comments.
