    Blessings your way!
    I have a 15 year old boy whom I suspect is on the spectrum. The most devastating part is that he decided not to believe in God. It it so difficult to see him not connecting with his peers at school or in our neighborhood. He spends his days alone. Most of all, it is so difficult to see him being away from God.
    How did you help your daughter stay in God’s path.

    Hi Paola,
    I am so sorry to hear about your son and am praying about how to answer. Our daughter has had moments where she says she the most inappropriate things about God and we are all shocked but in truth we probably have all felt that way at one time or another. It is hard for some kids on the spectrum to get their minds around God as he is not something concrete that they can touch. He is in many ways a mystery. We have encouraged our daughter to always be honest with God about how she feels. God can handle her honesty and will meet her there, even when she is shockingly inappropriate. We believe that the word of God is the truth…all of it. We have encouraged her to study the word. She is now, at age 24 quite a Bible scholar. Some of the questions we get from her really challenge us! 🙂 We also prayed like crazy especially in those teen years which can be anything but stable…especially with people on the spectrum. I think prayer is the key and encourage your son to talk to God about his questions. Does he have any interests? Our daughter is interested in animals, she has really connected with God through her interests. She loves the ministry Answers in Genesis. Their reading material has helped her so much! I would research what is going on in his interest area that you could use to help him see God at work. Please let me know if I can help in the future and please know this…I am praying for you!
