Mobility Impairment Specialist

Rock Hill, South Carolina

I am currently fundraising to join the staff of Engaging Disability. It is my joy to offer comfort and hope in Jesus Christ to others with spinal cord injuries and their families, from my own experience with spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries. I am thrilled to be able to help churches disciple and enfold people with spinal cord injuries and other mobility impairments.

“I hope that my message brings glory to God. He saved my life. Not just that, but he helps me make it through every day. He is so good and glorious and worthy of praise. I hope that when people hear my story, they think, ‘Wow, God is awesome! I want to know more about him.’”

Join My Bible Study for People With Spinal Cord Injuries

We are in the process of developing a Bible study via Zoom just for people who have spinal cord injuries. If you live with a spinal cord injury, won’t you consider join us?

We will use Paul David Tripp’s book Suffering as the basis for discussion. I like how he addresses the impact of suffering on all of life:

“Sometimes life just hurts. Out of nowhere, death, illness, unemployment, or a difficult relationship can change our lives and challenge everything we thought we knew―leaving us feeling unable to cope. But, in the midst of all this pain and confusion, we are not alone.”

We will also look at God’s promises through our trials and get practical with ways we can all grow and thrive in the hope of the gospel!
