Being homeschooled has brought me closer to my family but also closer to God.

My mom would write down a bible verse that me and my sisters would rewrite and study in tell we could read it out loud and memorize it then we would go to another bible verse and do the same.

How home schooling changed my life as a special needs child.

So my mom started homeschooling me me and my three sisters being homeschooled has helped me learn at my own pace.

Before I was homeschooled I could not sit still or hold a pencil my mom took the time to teach me that by being homeschooled it has brought me closer to my mom and sisters.

The first thing I learned that I remember learning about is a ever green tree and how they stay green all year long even in the fall.

My mom took me and my sisters on many adventures we would go to homeschooling events and groups we were in 4H and Girl Scouts she would take us to the library everyday and…

What it’s like being an adult with epilepsy

What it’s like to be an adult with epilepsy

Being a adult with epilepsy is hard somedays it feels like a roller coaster you never know what’s going to go wrong epilepsy is like a roller coaster going up and down someday are good and somedays are bad.

But I always try to stay calm and strong living with epilepsy is no walk in the park but with God in my side I know I Am good.

What scares me most about having epilepsy is am I going to have a seizure in public or around my friends or make someone mad for asking for rides but God has blessed me with great friends and family who I know I can go to for anything and I feel safe with.

Another thing is the medicine I am on how are they going to make me feel today am I going to have a good day or am I going to be sick today from them but I always tell my family how I feel and they help me and the Lord helps me too.

How my illness changed my life

How my illness changed my life.

I would say my illness changed my life by making me stronger and open to new new things like being in the special Olympics bowling as well as traveling around the us.

It as also made me outgoing and always kind and nice to people.

Being special needs has not brought me down it has brought me up and stronger it does get challenging but with God in my side I can face anything.

I would say that being special needs and having epilepsy is ok I have learned how to be ok with it my Illness is not me it is only part of me.

I am going to stay strong and trust God and I have a great support team behind me thank you lord for always being there for me.

If you walked a mile in my shoes

If you walked a mile in my shoes you could never do it because I learned how to stay strong through every kidney stone that I have ever passed I was in a lot of pain but God helped me through it and so did my family and doctors.

My family has been a big help too they have been there through everything all my seizures I have ever had and through every kidney stone.

I guess walking in someone’s shoes would be hard we all have something going on in are lives on ones life is perfect we all have something we are dealing with the goal is to stay strong and trust God.

I do get scared thinking I am going to have a seizure in public but when I get that feeling I ask God to help me not have a seizure in public and he hears me and helps me.

I have seen everything and it seems like I have been through everything but God is always with me and my family too.
