Publisher's Summary

Nathan was different and Sally knew it. From his early childhood, Nathan was bursting with creativity and uncontainable energy, struggling not only with learning issues but also with anxiety and OCD. He saw the world through his own unique lens - one that often caused him to be labeled as "bad", "troubled", or someone in need of "fixing". Bravely choosing to listen to her motherly intuition rather than the loud voices of the world, Sally dared to believe that Nathan's differences could be part of an intentional design from a loving Creator with a plan for his life. She trusted that the things that made him different were the very things that could make him great.
Join Sally and Nathan as they share their stories from a personal perspective as mother and son. If you are in need of help and hope in your own journey with an outside-the-box child, or if you're an adult trying to make sense of your differences, you'll find deep insight, resonance, and encouragement in this book. Dare to love and nurture the "different" one in your life.


What the Critics Say

"Reading the unique perspectives of both mother and child is powerful. Moreover, the love that flows throughout this book makes even the most difficult experiences hope-filled and encouraging. I cannot recommend Different enough!" (Shawna Wingert, author of Everyday Autism)

there's a lump in my throat

at first, i thought the book was interesting but was a little concerned at the mention of demons in the introduction. then as i lstened, it became apparent that nathan and his mom were clearly believers. the story grew on me as nathan told about his obvious desire to keep himself pure in this 'fallen world' to use his own terms (I completely agree with this term). i ached for his mom when she mentioned how unashamedly this world has put inappropriate images & literature in front of younger and younger children. all this, along with the beautiful ending where nathan has realized his dreams, makes for a testimony that i would recommend to any parent of a different child. nathan is the same age as my younger brother who had a terrible time in school because of ADHD and the stigma it evokes.
