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.

Critic reviews

"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)

my point of view<br />

in the sample I sounded very interesting as I have both dyslexia and mild ocd. as I found Nathins side interesting (I'de liked more) I struggled to listen to his mom as it was alot of Christian stuff & conflicting herself.
but thanks for sharing your story.

Inspirational

This is a wonderful book. It is so encouraging and uplifting, focusing on what can at times be a discouraging situation. It is written in such a very open, honest and personal way, that you can “feel” what the author “feels”. I gained so much insight.
I enjoyed the way it is written from Nathan’s (the son) perspective and then the same event or time period from Sally’s (the mom) perspective. Read this book if have anyone in your life who is different, or even if you don’t. You will not be disappointed.
