It’s More Ups Than Downs

Seventeen years ago, when my son Ryan was born with Down syndrome, it came as a complete surprise.  We knew we were having a boy and I had been dreaming of his future for the last 9 months. Maybe he would be a star soccer player for his high school, tall and handsome, with so […]

Back in April, I noticed that a bird thought highly enough of the decorative wreath on our front door and decided it would be the perfect place for a nest.  A few days later, I found three small blue eggs centered neatly in the nest. We were careful not to disturb it and used the […]

Eliminating the R-Word

The R-Word can only be eliminated when another R-Word takes its place. I will get to that word in just a moment. There has been a gradual evolution in the usage of the word R-Word, “retard” or “retarded.” All the way back in the 1400s the R-Word was used to talk about the blockage of, […]

Give Me Your Candy!

Ability Ministry recently attended a Christian convention. At this conference we had both an exhibit booth and a “breakout session” we were leading. Leading breakout sessions are fun! I get to speak about things that I am passionate about with people who are interested. Hanging at the exhibit booth can be challenging. It consists of […]

What Does It Mean to Be Inclusive?

One of the biggest buzz words in the disability community over the past several years has been inclusion. Schools are leading the way with the initiative of getting children with disabilities back in main stream classrooms. But what does it look like in the church?

We take so many things for granted each day. Without thought, we tie our shoes, brush our hair, and get dressed for the day. We read our Bibles, drive cars, and go to work. Rarely do we think about any of those things. It’s almost an automatic daily response. Are you aware that the act […]

Because Jesus' table is accessible for everyone...

We desire to see the Church make room for all people affected by disability. To fully participate. To fully partner. To fully lead.

We exist to equip and empower the 25% of the population with a disability, their families, and their churches to become who God has created them to be.
