What’s it like to raise a child with mental illness?


Welcome to my new blog. I’ve started this blog to meet other mothers who are raising a child (or children) with mental illness. Our son, Chris, was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder in 1997. He’s now 31 yrs. old and lives with my husband and me. Howie and I also have a son, Robert, who is 29 yrs. old. He lives with his wife, Kristie, and their 9 month old daughter, Sofie.

My intention is to provide a place where we can find support. You’re not alone. Together we can encourage one another. Posts in the form of devotionals will show how we can find hope in the Lord. Those personal stories will shed light on what our lives are like, while illustrating how God can be found in the midst of turmoil.

How has God met your greatest need?
