On being forged into a warrior mom

If I could summarize our journey from Hell to HOPEISM, it would be in my faith, which I call HOPEISM. It has been my weapon of choice to get me through each battle I have had to fight in my mission to win our war called life with autism and seizures. Vaccine injury to be more specific. It would also be in committing to heart, soul, & mind the words and motto's from Forged, NDCQ, the Lone Survivor, and Levi Lusko in his book, "Through the Eyes of a Lion." I will be forever grateful to the inspiration, encouragement, and mental fortitude found through all of them collectively. Because of that, I am not allowing this tragedy of vaccine injury that has come into our lives to be an obstacle to being used by God. I am instead turning it into an opportunity to be used like never before!

This blog is dedicated to Brandon. His life has been forged by difficulty, obstacles, & all too often because of seizures - pain, blood, broken teeth, & broken bones. Yet through all that he has shown such fortitude. The bravery, strength, & resilience of a true warrior. He taught me that having strength through adversity means that even if you lose every battle, like the Lone Survivor, you never quit fighting until you win the war. That in the words of "NDCQ," you keep "dreaming," keep "daring," & keep "doing." As Team Guppy has yet to be able to escape vaccine injury, we have no choice but to as Levi Lusko writes, "Run toward the Roar." God has indeed given us such incredible power in enduring such impossible pain.

Some days the HOPEISM in that simply takes my breath away.

Seeking Joy in Disability

If you are seeking joy in disability as I am, I welcome you to join my online networking group!

This is a non-denominational online networking list for anyone to join and share insights you have learned about God through your child's disability - or to seek insights & inspiration from others!

To join:

On this blog, "Seeking Joy in Disability" - I will be sharing my personal Devotional thoughts on my journey in my "Life with Autism", through my son Brandon Guppy.

He has inspired me to write countless things! Many have been published, most haven't! But they are all priceless to me in that each one represents a step of my journey, and my family's.

So if you would like, check this site often for my latest musing as I journey with you, in seeking joy in disability...

Because when you seek joy, you find God!


I will be selling some "God's Beautiful Butterfly" notecards soon through this site, and if you have been inspired by anything I have written, your purchase of a set of notecards would be appreciated!
