With the holiday season upon us, you have likely already glanced over your list. Do you cringe when you land on the names of people you know homeschool? Are you wondering what to possibly get a person who lives a different lifestyle from yours? What could a parent who spends most of his/her day at home with his/her children need or want this year? What about the children? What would be most useful to them?

Even though we are "regular" people, and even though it’s the thought that counts, we homeschoolers are indeed a different bunch on your list.

Here are 3 reasons why + the MEGA newly-updated gift-guide!
Get a sneak-peek of what's coming for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals! I already have a few noted that I'm getting my hands on this year!

Parents of children with special needs often struggle with the acceptance and inclusion of their children in community settings. Some places parents have expressed this difficulty is in schools, daycares, camps, church, and youth groups. In short: ministries that cater to children. The reason this occurs is not because these children are not loved by leaders. It’s because there is little knowledge on how to plan for and welcome children who come with a unique set of needs.

Katie Wetherbee and Jolene Philo, both mothers of children with special needs, have authored the book Every Child Welcome: A Ministry Handbook for Including Kids with Special Needs to guide leaders and volunteers to create a loving community environment for all children.
