Overview

Mental illness is real, and our children are not exempt. Yet mental illness—especially when it affects children—remains a hidden affliction. It is unmentioned at family reunions, misunderstood by society and not talked about in social circles.

It’s time to break the silence.

A Day in the Life invites you to take a peek into the homes and lives of families who have a child living with a chronic mental health disorder. Written from the perspective of a mom whose son battles mental illness, this book discloses not only the chaos, confusion and exhaustion a child’s brain disorder brings to a home, but also gives insight into the profound hope and peace a close relationship with Jesus Christ promises.

As layers of darkness are peeled away, hidden gems of God’s heart are brought to light.

“I will give you treasures hidden in the darkness—secret riches. I will do this so you may know that I am the Lord … the one who calls you by name.” Isaiah 45:3 (NLT)
