Greetings from Sarah Sundin! Today I have the joy of interviewing popular author and speaker Jolene Philo. Raised in a home with a father with special needs—and then having a son with special needs—Jolene has a unique perspective and a heart for special needs families that she’s turned into a powerful ministry. Her latest book, co-authored with Dr. Gary Chapman, applies his famous 5 Love Languages concept to special needs families.
Tell us about your book, Sharing Love Abundantly in Special Needs Families: The 5 Love Languages for Parents Raising Children with Disabilities.
Dr. Chapman and I wrote Sharing Love Abundantly to equip every member of a special needs family–parents, typical siblings, and children with special needs–to do two things: discover their love languages and to use them effectively with one another. It also offers guidance for parents who want to share their child’s love languages with the educators, medical providers, and mental health providers who work with their kids. Read More →

Nice! What surprised you the most during the research or writing of your book?
I am one of those odd people who loves doing research! In fact, it is way too easy for me to get caught up in the research of a story and forget all about the actual writing. This story was especially difficult for me since Martha’s Vineyard is a place I have always wanted to visit. I spent hours browsing photographs and articles about the people, the land, and the history of this fascinating place. Read More →

Greetings from Sarah Sundin! It’s an honor for me to interview the very first Christian author I ever met, Kathy Collard Miller—she and my mother used to bowl together! Kathy is a multi-published author and a gifted speaker—I had the joy of hearing Kathy speak at a women’s retreat many years ago and was deeply touched by her words, her heart, and her humor. I know you’ll also enjoy hearing from Kathy today.
