Outstanding organization! I was so impressed with their mom's retreat this weekend! There were so many selfless volunteers who helped make all of us special needs mom's feel spiritually nourished as well as pampered!
Thank you for the wonderful encouragement! I am a parent of 3 children with special needs and participated in a small-group book study. It was such a positive and helpful experience, not like many of the other groups I have tried where I left feeling worse than when I arrived. I really appreciate how the study helped me gain some perspective on my family's situation and caused me to reevaluate some of my reactions and biases. I have felt so understood and supported by the group!
Snappin' Ministries gave us a care basket and I STILL use stuff that we got in it a year later. Their ministry is phenomenal and true evidence that God does NOT leave us alone while we are here on earth...he surrounds us with love and support.
I attended the mom's conference, while I was asked to come as the speaker, after I addressed the mom's, I enjoyed an amazing afternoon being pampered, enjoying good food, and having great conversations. I walked away feeling refreshed and thankful to have attended the reatreat, and especially thankful for the leader, Barb Dittrich, who is passionate about helping parents know they are not alone, and they are loved.
We LOVE SNAPPIN Ministries!! I learned about their organization about 4 years ago and they have become an invaluable resource for me and my family. I only wish I had learned about them a few years sooner when I actually lived in WI. But thankfully, they are there to help families nationwide. I have received some great resource books from them on special needs and special needs ministry that have been amazing!
My first encounter with Snappin' Ministries was when I signed up to be a vendor for one of their fundraisers. By the time event actually happened, I found out that our own little baby-to-be would be one of the special ones. Fast forward to a couple of weeks after Tobias' birth and we were already stationed at Children's Hospital so that he could be treated for a respiratory illness. Snappin' Ministries sent a care package to our home that provided not only gift cards to various businesses, but also some toiletries and other items. Tangible and practical love was given through that package, and with no family living near us, we truly felt like the care package was a hug from above!
