A Mothers Fight, A Faithful God
MJ Oksman’s new book, A Mother’s Fight, A Faithful God ($11.99, paperback, 9781625091567; $5.99, e-book, 9781625091574) is the biography of her son’s life as he struggles with a learning disability, depression and attention deficit disorder until he is finally diagnosed with a duplication on chromosome 16p13.11. At its core, however, this is the story of how God loves all His children and proof that His strength is made perfect in weakness. Just as broken glass reflects more light so can we reflect God’s light to others through our brokenness.
Do you feel like you are struggling alone to raise a special needs child? Although the world does not always value these children God does. In her book Oksman recounts the many battles she fought with educators, medical professionals and many others under God’s guiding hand to obtain the help her son needed. Although strides have been made, in light of recent headlines our Mental Health and Education Systems are still failing our most at risk children. With just as much bravery and determination as it took to walk this journey, Mary writes this book to increase awareness that we need to heal these children earlier or they will face the same issues as Eric. This book will encourage you to continue to fight for your child to become all God intended them to be.
