For about 20 years, my mother worked with adult
mentally disabled and retarded. She loved them,
often took them to church on Sundays – helped feed
them and give them nourishment.
One of her favorite stories centered around a man
in his 40’s who, for the 30 days leading up to Easter,

For many Easter is a holiday for celebration – a reason to

I have never taught them before – and I assure you they will change
your life for the better, if you’re interested. Stay tuned.
