Welcome! Glad you are here!

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil,
to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11 (NKJV)

Sharing resources, research, ideas, inspiring scripture, success stories and even failures...


Hello and welcome to Finding Peace in the Autism Puzzle.  I created this blog out of my own need to connect with other families trying to learn more about autism in order to find peace in this puzzling journey. My own journey has not been easy, but I have learned a whole lot along the way and I want to share my knowledge with you in hopes that it will help you find your way. 

After much prayer and thinking, I have decided to turn this blog into a peaceful location for resources to help our kids and families. I will continue to post inspirational things as well, but I've just come to the realization that autism is not about me. In my journey I have discovered that my child's peace is my peace. As a parent, I need to help my child fit into this world-- not to fully assimilate into it, but to be able to be a part of it. THAT is where I've found peace. As long as I know he is not accepted, understood or acknowledged as a part of people's lives, I will not be at peace. It's time to help my child find his peace and his place.

Here I will share information I have learned along the way, both personally and professionally. My hope is that with each post you will be able to refill your arsenal of tricks to help your loved ones with ASD. I will continue to post interesting research findings, though I'm over trying to figure out "what?" or "why?" It's time to move on and think about "how?" to make the future accessible and successful for my child.

With each new post, I will make sure to credit the source and offer a link to the original so you can learn more and become better equipped to help your loved ones find their place in this world. So, join me on the rest of this journey as we learn and share together as we move towards helping all of those touched by autism find peace in this puzzling world. I welcome you with open arms and I am praying that you, too, will find this site as a helpful resource and a refuge.

What this site is NOT:
This site is meant to share autism resources, as well as devotionals to uplift and inspire.  It is my hope that this site will help you feel more equipped to travel on your journey, to help bring you closer to God and remind you that you are not alone. This site is NOT for recommending any specific types of therapies, to endorse any specific product, to argue about vaccinations or pass judgement on parenting. I pray that this site will help you feel empowered with information, bring you closer to Him and help you feel peace.

Let us know you were here!
Please add a comment on this site to tell us you were here. Share some words, scripture or message that has inspired you! Today I was blessed to read that one mom who visited the site went onto one of the listed church websites  & was able to listen to a sermon. Her words were "you can't hit the pause button at church."

Resources you'll find here
Here you will find pages and posts with a wide range of resources. I have listed autism research news, inspirational scripture, informational videos, inspirational music, lists of resources online, recommended books and a wide range of anecdotes written by God through various authors, including myself.
I hope this site will help you in your puzzling journey through life with ASD. I thank you for taking the time to visit and I am honored to share this blog with you. May the Lord bless you and your loved ones richly!!!!!
Enjoy & God bless you!

  1. Hello, I just started following you. Thank you for your blog and sharing of information. My 2 year old little girl was diagnosed on June 12th of this year. I still cry everyday and I can't say the 'A' word out loud without sobbing. She just started behavioral therapy 2 weeks ago and speech will, hopefully, start next week. We also have an evaluation scheduled with our school board on August 22nd. I am so scared about having her start school at 3 (she turns 3 on 9/25). But I know she could really use the interaction with kids her own age. Anyway, I hope to learn from you and others alike. If you are interested, my blog link is:http://ylindo01.blogspot.com
