Between the worry, the doctor's appointments, and the thousand small challenges of everyday life, it's easy to feel overwhelmed and exhausted. The idea of showing abundant love to every member of your family can feel like a daunting task. Jolene Philo has been there. And in this wise, warm, practical guide, she and Dr. Gary Chapman show you how the 5 love languages can help strengthen your marriage and family life—whatever your needs. The authors share dozens of stories from parents of children with special needs children.
They'll teach you how to
protect your marriage amidst the stress
discover and speak the love language of your child—even if they're nonverbal
accommodate the love languages for children with special needs and disabilities
show love to every member of your family when you have limited time, money, and energy
The way co-author, Jolene Philo, incorporated Dr Chapman’s five love languages into the disability community is a masterpiece. I really appreciate how many families put their time and effort into sharing what worked for their children and Dr Chapman’s astute advice to meet your child where they are at mentally.
I loved this book's practicality and perspective on showing love in special needs families. While I am not a special needs parent myself, I have some close friends who are and this is a book I will definitely be sharing with them. It is insightful, compassionate and practical. Very readable!
With a frank and honest observation on how disability can unravel family unity, this book inspires and equips us to live out our faith as we interact with those we love.

Having a special needs child shouldn't mean sacrificing a full family life. Learn to share love abundantly no matter your circumstances.
