S15: Helen Hoffmann - Special Needs

As we face the massive trials and hurdles of homeschooling our special needs children, there is never an easy, one-size-fits-all solution. Each situation is unique but there are some over-arching Biblical principles and postures that need our focus. Through this wisdom, we can then find practical solutions to face our daily and long-term challenges. There is hope for triumph and victory. Psalm 118:5-6 "In my distress I prayed to the Lord and the Lord answered me and set me free. The Lord is for me, so I will have no fear."

Biography: Helen and her husband David have 3 young adult children (with various special needs). Her kids were homeschooled from K-12. Friendships they made through RVHEA continue to be an integral blessing in all their lives. Since her homeschooling years have ended, Helen has transitioned to an administrative vocation with monetary rewards! She can also be found outside, walking her little dog Rocco — her face always tilted up toward the sunshine.
