Synopsis: As a mom of a newly diagnosed child with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), Chynna Laird relentlessly sought experts in SPD, as well as top nutritionists, biopsychologists, and neurologists. She thought that if she could understand the major functions of the brain, and how it’s supposed to take in, process and respond to stimulation, she could discover how SPD interferes with these functions. Understanding the whole picture (the combination of body, brain and nutritional health) led Chynna to embrace the “Sensory Diet.”
“Exceptionally well written, organized and presented for the benefit of the non-specialist general reader with no previous background on the subject…”
In the pages of “The Sensory Processing Diet: One Mom’s Path of Creating Brain, Body and Nutritional Health for Children with SPD”, Chunna share the keys of a well-balanced nutritional diet and the activities and exercises that truly work. “The Sensory Processing Diet” is specifically designed for parents to utilize the resources in this study to create a whole picture of their own child’s conditions and create a customize Sensory Diet for him or her.
Critique: Exceptionally well written, organized and presented for the benefit of the non-specialist general reader with no previous background on the subject, “The Sensory Processing Diet: One Mom’s Path of Creating Brain, Body and Nutritional Health for Children with SPD” is an especially and unreservedly recommended addition to community and college/university library Parenting collections in general, and SPD supplemental studies lists in particular. It should be noted for the personal reading lists of concerned parents that “The Sensory Processing Diet” is also readily available in a paperback edition (9781615995219, $21.95) and in a digital book format (Kindle, $6.95).

Product Details

Grace & Mercy: A Devotional Journey was created from a desire for a fresh look at discipleship within the modern, busy church. The book explores the progression of the seed planted in a sermon: how truth gets watered, germinates, sprouts, grows and eventually bears fruit. Grace & Mercy demonstrates how to have a nourishing and flourishing spiritual life. A soft plot line meanders throughout and the book gently explores themes of communication, discipleship, positive expectations, and diligence. Each chapter includes devotional content for individual readers and exploratory questions for group discussion.

Readers can expect to:

  • Discover the value of slowing down, paying attention, and soaking in the wisdom of biblical truth expressed each week in the Sunday sermon
  • Understand how to live a more contemplative life
  • Grow in their faith from week to week
  • Improve awareness in the way God is moving through the people who are in their lives
  • Be stirred up toward love, gentleness, and goodness toward one another

"Pictures and stories and memories are three of God's sweet gifts to help us visualize his truths and strengthen our hearts. Katie and Chris use all of these to paint little portraits that add color and depth to how I understand and experience God." --Kirk Freeman, Lead Pastor, CrossBridge Community Church, San Antonio, Texas

"My wife, Beth, is often suggesting daily devotionals for me, but I just can't get into them. She was surprised to see me devouring Grace & Mercy and asked, 'What's different about this one?' I paused a moment, looked up and said, 'I can relate to these. Let's gather some friends and dig into it.' Grace & Mercy provides an interesting and engaging tool to study the Bible." --Jim Lenaway, Pastor, B-Free Church, Bradford, Pennsylvania

"Grace & Mercy presents an honest, encouraging look at life with its disquieting issues. Katie welcomed me to sit beside her "knee to knee" with Jesus, the Wonderful Counselor, then to journey onward, with Him leading the way. --Chuck Rizer, Lieutenant Colonel, Army Chaplain (retired), author of Downwind of Thunder

"This devotional is wonderfully refreshing and special. I love the practical, chatty, relatable style that makes recognizing God's presence and love in our lives so accessible. If you want to benefit from experiencing God in your everyday life, Grace & Mercy is for you." --Rob Davis, Founding Pastor, Vineyard Church, Hopkinton Massachusetts
