Eat, Sleep, Save the World: Words of Encouragement for the Special Needs Parent, by Jamie Sumner, is a noble book.
This book is meant for special needs parents, and to help them work through their day-to-day struggles.
Including sections of determination, hope, resilience, patience, laughter and thankfulness, the author asks the reader to reflect on Scripture and their life.
As a whole, the book is real, but encouraging.
As a parent and an author, I was encouraged by Sumner’s mission – to encourage special needs parents.
I highly recommend the book for those who it would apply and mean the most.
