Raising Awareness and a Son on the Autism Spectrum

Join Kristin as she has an amazing conversation with Gina Mitchell about raising a son on the spectrum.  From being a mother to teacher to advocate, Gina shares her experiences, some negative, but overwhelmingly positive as being autistic also comes with its own superpowers.

Gina Mitchell is Sam Mitchell’s mom. Sam Mitchell is the creator and host of the podcast Autism Rocks and Rolls and the CEO of the Non-Profit Autism Rocks and Rolls. Gina has been Sam’s #1 fan well, really since birth, but especially since Sam has spread his wings and shown the world what he’s got. She is currently a teacher of 8th-grade students and has a bachelor’s degree in English/Social Studies Education, a Master’s degree in Education, and a Gifted and Talented Education degree. Gina has been a teacher for 17-years and still is. However, her second job is working at Autism Rocks and Rolls with Sam. Here, she works in marketing, networking, writing, editing, producing, and really, just doing a lot behind the scenes.  When Sam’s life mission became helping others, it became hers too. Her favorite pastimes are listening to crime and detective podcasts, music and crazy dancing with her family and students, leisurely swimming, reading books, building Websites, traveling, meeting new people, playing with her dogs, and shopping for bargains.

Introducing NeuroDiverse Christian Couples

Listen in as Kristin talks to Dr. Stephanie Holmes and her husband, Dan Holmes, as they discuss their journey of having a child diagnosed on the spectrum and, in time, Dan diagnosed as an adult.  Dr. Holmes has previously been the host of Springbrook’s Converge Autism Radio podcast here on Mental Health News Radio Network. Get to know them both as they introduce their new podcast, NeuroDiverse Christian Couples.  Within this show they share their goals of building connection and communication about their life’s journey together as they navigate challenges that come with neurodiverse relationships. 
Dr. Holmes seeks to bring restoration and spiritual renewal to individuals and couples facing challenging situations. By combining affordable rates with a desire to glorify God in all that transpires through the counseling/coaching process, she offers life-changing hope to troubled lives. Through the International Association of NeuroDiverse Christian Marriages, LLC she wants to educate and equip others to build effective strategies for NeuroDiverse Christian Marriages.

Dan Holmes believes there is no greater office one can hold than that of a husband and father. Since both roles require complicated interplay on many levels, Dan also believes God has provided help through the leading of the Holy Spirit, the counsel of others, and the work of life coaches.

Should We Question The Universe? You Bet!

If you’re like me, you were raised to accept what shows up in your life as “the will of God” and never, ever question or complain about what does show up. I always thought I was a peon,
flawed, a sinner who had no business speaking to God other than to say I’m sorry for my many faults. Little did I know how wrong I was! I began, slowly but surely, to feel as though I was a
being that is and always was a beloved individuated aspect of that Creator and I have been on a journey of awakening since. What I know now is that we live in a participatory universe and we play the central role in conscious creation. What I also know is that we haven’t come to the full realization of our powerful gifts and abilities and need a little feedback and reinforcement as we go along and that’s why I have learned to ask the universe some questions. The first is “what if”.
What if all that I believe about myself is false? What if I am not hopeless, lazy, ugly, fat, stupid,
unworthy? You’re not making statements that your subconscious mind can’t believe and will therefore guide you back to the old default thoughts. You are merely looking at possibilities that have never been entertained. The other “challenge” I give to the universe is this: Show me how
it can get better”. Kristin and I talk about these ideas on this week’s episode of Empowered
Empaths. This may change your life for the better so join us and find out for yourself. What if it is true?
