For years Diane Sturmer saw a need for devotional materials that were at a proper reading level for adults with developmental disabilities — yet weren’t childish. Now her book, Two are Better than One, is filling that gap.
“My dream was to create books that would bring encouragement and draw people closer to God and to each other,” Sturmer said. “I have had the honor of working directly with individuals who have developmental challenges and extraordinary abilities for over 35 years and have heard from not only the individuals, but also family members and caregivers the desire for resources (like these).”
You can order the book from Authorhouse, Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Soon it will be on the shelves at Alpha & Omega Parable Christian Store in Greece and Penfield, NY, as well.
Want to add even more meaning to Lent? Try adapting this journal/devotional from my friend at pinkroomponderings.blogspot.com. Hers is actually an Advent journal, but it would work just as well for capturing the lessons of Lent. Plus, I love the idea of using what you have on hand (in this case manila folders) and making something memorable.
A little more about the process from Angie’s blog:
Back at the end of November I participated in an Advent Journaling challenge. Each day we had an advent devotional and “thoughts to ponder” I was able to keep up with the devotional but am still embellishing the pages! I created my journal using manila folders. The devotional/study is on the left page and then my notes, prayers etc are on the right page that is embellished.
If you’re interested in a project like this, you should also check out scrapsmart.com. I love their vintage images and the fact that they actually offer images with religious meaning. Oh, and I love the owners of the business, too!
Another journal made by Angie. This one started as a composition notebook.
