How Went From OMG I Can’t Do This To Seeing A Huge Change In 5 Months

The evening darkness suited my depressed mood. I didn’t bother turning on the lights or leaving my office. It was another day and I didn’t feel like leaving my house.

I was exhausted with parenting. Burnt out. And embarrassed. You see, 3 years earlier, I’d left a stable job, with a generous income to pursue my dream life as a homemaking wife, mom and writer.

I wrote my first published book, a guide, articles, blog posts and podcast scripts. I started singing at our local church, I cooked cleaned, washed, did taxes, and I hustled. And I learned. And grew and improved. And you know what? It worked.

My husband has been a huge supporter to me as a full-time domestic engineer, homeschooling mama, writer, podcaster, worship singer. Living the dream — except not. I felt disappointed in myself. I’d built an entire life around what many consider an ideal great life, and I no longer thought I could do it.

When You Feel You Can’t Do It

I wonder if you know the feeling too. The one where you no longer want to do the thing you always wanted to do. When you have a child with level three autism and other behavioral issues life gets super hard. It gets super hard to block out the screams, the destruction of throwing chairs, ripping shirts, spitting, kicking and the feet pounding. It gets hard when you have no one to truly help. No medication, therapy, song, snack, psychiatrist or doctor could help us when Jaiden was in crisis for almost two full months.

Maybe you don’t have a child with special needs but you studied the music for years, going all in, dreaming of a career as a performer, now you rarely listen to music or sing. Maybe you were a writer and you stopped writing. You might have built a business, or a brand from the ground up, and now the thought of it exhausts you. Your tired, frustrated and stressed. Or you created a product and generated a side hustle, but the grind has gotten you down. Whatever it is, I am here with you. It. Gets. Crappy. It also gets leveled.

It’s okay to slow down and reevaluate your priorities. It’s okay to slow down and eat right, rest right, exercise right. It’s okay to slow down and set time aside for meditation, prayer and worship. It’s okay to stop and look at the real reasons your experiencing stress. It’s okay to stop and think about your negative behaviors and how to turn away from them. It’s okay to ease up on your expectations, on your right to be right, to be heard and understood. It’s important to choose to be grateful, to commit to loving God, your family and others. It’s important to refocus and breathe.

“My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him.” (Psalm 62:1)

SUPPORT GROUPS: Cultivating Close Friendships

Do you ever find yourself thinking about things that are beyond your control? It’s amazing how stress can make your whole world spin out of control. There was a time where I didn’t want to talk to anybody, be around anybody, or go to church. I did not do well with the stress and anxiety I was going through because I kept trying to control everything that was going on in my sons life.

I have three sons, and the son that I’m talking about is the one that has severe special needs. It was a struggle and every day instead of trusting God to get me through I tried to do it in my own strength. In Colossians 1:11 it says “We also pray that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need.”

I seriously was at a point where I needed support. Instead of looking for it in the right places, I thought I could do life all on my own. If you’re in that place I encourage you to find a support group that gets you through the hard times to help you get through those super difficult moments. Even if it’s a Facebook group that understands what you’re going through a support group or you can begin to connect with other people and understand what you’re going through. In Ephesians 3:16-20 it says, “I pray that from his glorious unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength of spirit. In Christ, you will make it home and your hearts as you trust him.Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, it’s all gods people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. When you experience the love of Christ, you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all the glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”

Caring for my son Jaiden has been a blessing and has also been consuming leaving me exhausted at times. Joining support groups online has helped me to find information that is relevant for helping Jaiden and also making it a point to take care of my mental health and connect with my friends that truly care. I also absolutely encourage people to seek out coaching or counseling if you feel you need intense goal oriented support.

I hope that all of the overwhelming emotions you are feeling subside and you have peace and also that the Scriptures I have referenced here speak to your circumstances. I hope and I pray that you find the right support to help you through the things that you need to get you through all the difficulties you’re facing and begin to establish support so you can have the right kind of relationships on your journey.

When Your Teen With Autism Gets Aggressive

Here I go again, I feel like I come on here from time to time and talk to you all about how to deal with your child who has autism and aggression. I’ve noticed a trend myself on posts where I discuss autism aggression and meltdowns and I wish I could tell you that it gets better. The truth is, it gets much harder especially when your child becomes a teenager. They get taller, they weigh more, they eat more, and they are much stronger. 

I wish I could tell you that I have a few tips to help you with aggression and violence, but I truly don’t have many tips to give. I can however, give you my experience and words and just tell you that you definitely have to put on love more than anything as well as be physically fit, mentally fit, and emotionally fit. You guys, it is really hard.  Do your best and rest up when you need to and God will give you peace that surpasses all understanding when you need it most for sure.

“Look deep into my heart, God, and find out everything I am thinking. Don’t let me follow evil ways, but lead me in the way that time has proven true.” Psalms‬ ‭139:23-24‬

5 things I confirmed in 2020

The 5 things I confirmed in 2020:

1. The most important things aren’t things.

At the beginning of this year, I wanted to enter 2020 looking my best, feeling my best and having the best with a servant leadership attitude. I was ready to change, serve, ready to remain open and kind, ready to be the best to help others be their best. For some people, it is just New Year’s resolutions. For others, a mindset kept on God, Faith, Health and Family kept them humble, compassionate, centered, and strong through a tough year of a pandemic, parenting, politics and homeschooling. How did you handle what’s most important in front of you? Did you spend less and honor your family by loving them, giving them your time? Did you hope for the best? Find a new workout?

I see you, I recognize you. You showed me what’s possible.

2. Confidence Is Crucial.

Confidence is the belief in one’s ability to figure things out. Set the reality and progress of your year by believing you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you! Set your mind on the good things and see yourself having a more peaceful home life, better health, better relationships and a family that has a bond that can’t be broken.

3. Being in a Community is Needed.

Being in community with friends from our church REALLY MATTERED this year. Make friendship a priority through out your life. Outside of my Hubbs and the health of my family, one of the things I’m thankful for this year is my friendships that kept me feeling like I wasn’t going crazy and that all would be ok. Love you peeps.

4. Creating Good Habits Does Matter.

Praying, exercising, drinking water, flossing, taking vitamins, writing, reading, worshiping and scheduling in my planners made my days matter more.

5. Investing in Personal Development Is A Must.

I learned to be more alive, connected and fulfilled in my walk with God and my family. I worked super hard at reading and researching multiple books, articles and websites to gain more enrichment. I listened to tons of sermons, podcasts and livecasts. It was a tough year. Did you try to balance your life by taking in good material? Whether it was by reading or listening to some great podcasts?

These things I learned and re-visited this year, and it was most definitely needed and well worth it.

I hope these 5 help. I’ll share more on The Autism Stress Less Podcast Podcast this week – probably a Friday or Saturday episode. I’m not done yet this week, and I’ve got some big announcements coming soon.

I’m grateful for you. Sending you and your family warm blessings for a peaceful New Year.

With love, your biblical counselor,

Maritza

Nonverbal Autism Tips For The Season

My middle son Jaiden is now 14 with epilepsy, level 3 autism and an intellectual disability. He is nonverbal and has pica which is eating non edible food items on the daily. When I say nonverbal, for Jaiden this means he is unable to have back and forth conversation, has what’s called echolalia where he repeats words and phrases and also has a tendency to scream high pitch screams most days.

Jaiden doesn’t speak in sentences of more than 3 words. When he does speak in sentences, it is random sentences out of the blue when he is extremely excited and that happens about 3-4 times a year. The way that we communicate with him through out our days and how over the years we have built a relationship with him is through several different ways.

  • Find out what your child likes
  • Be straightforward with your language
  • Remove overwhelming stimuli
  • Use nonverbal communication like the picture exchange system, sign language, iPad with communication apps

These are some things that I have used with Jaiden over the years and I hope some of these things fe you will research for yourself and child to see what fits for you.

Just recently I had a great conversation with Sam Huber a man with autism who is married with a family of his own. He has a wonderful heart for the autism community please check him out on YouTube👇🏼

The Power Of Patient Parenting

I was talking to Kev about how our parenting styles are so different and that because of his patience his parenting to me, is more effective. In our marriage, we discuss frequently how we should treat each of our kids such as what’s really worth the fight and what we really need to go easy on with our kids.

Do you ever wonder, how Jesus would navigate the tension in your household? Jesus was all grace and all truth all the time with the disciples and they weren’t his kids, but they were his friends. Maybe this is not a good comparison, however the point is to consistently give grace to our kids and to consistently be patient with them because that’s exactly how Jesus is with us. I am guilty of being a crappy parent and I have learned over the years how to be more patient, more kind and more loving. I believe that you can learn all of these things too.

Jesus laid the foundation for us by showing us the new covenant command which is to love others as Jesus loves us. Following that principle will make you a better parent as well as you will learn to exercise more patience. I don’t want to get too deep into psychological issues because I understand that if you have a history of trauma and unresolved emotional wounds from your past, of course that’s going to spill into your parenting.  I’m just talking about simply following what God has laid out for us which is to love your children and to try to have patience with them.

When they have autism and special needs this can be very difficult at times and I totally understand. However, Love isn’t pushy and it chooses to move at the other persons pace since God moves at our pace so we are to do the same for all our children. Let’s try to do that especially in this season! 

“Love is patient and kind, never jealous, boastful, proud, or” 1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:4‬ ‭

When You Are Depressed And Detached Consider This

I’ve been depressed and detached in the most joyous of situations. For instance, I’m on vacation with Kevin and Sebastian and I’m sitting outside of the villa we are staying at. The patio is with red brick pavement, green chairs and a green table. I’m looking out at a palm tree it’s about 82° and sunny with a beautiful breeze. I feel a little down and detached and it has nothing to do with what anyone has done or said or where I’m at. It is a struggle in the mind that is a battle and I have to purposefully shut it down each day.

I still at times feel depressed and detached and it has nothing to do with my surroundings. It’s who I am, what I’ve gone through, struggle with. I know for some of you you might be thinking how in the world can you feel depressed and detached when you are in a place where there is beautiful palm trees, swimming pools, and sunshine? When you have struggled with depression, anxiety and PTSD you struggle with it and you learn to get through the struggle. It all begins in your mind.

I want to talk about if you’re in a place of depression and detachment what are you to do? This topic is a genuine expression of what I’ve gone through and if you’ve ever felt depressed or detached and your joy is gone what do you do? If you are a parent that has a child with autism and developmental disabilities it really is up to you to try to amplify your joy as some days are harder than others. So how do you amplify your joy?

Here are three things to try:

1. Get interested in others things like music, painting, board games, working out, walking, or even cooking

2. Go out with friends and ask them questions about their life, their likes and wants.

3. Spread the joy by smiling more, singing more, starting a relationship with God, reading the Bible, talking to him, loving him, yourself and your family more.

4. Be Thankful plus it’s that time of year! Be grateful for at least three things today and let’s try to be grateful for the rest of the weekend too☺️

Hope you guys are all healthy and well and are not depressed or detached, BUT if you are… I am with you. Blessings to you and your family and have a Happy Thanksgiving!

“I pray that God, who gives hope, will bless you with complete happiness and peace because of your faith. And may the power of the Holy Spirit fill you with hope.”Romans‬ ‭15:13‬ ‭CEV‬‬

Things You Need To Know About Suffering

I’ve been reading this book called ministry is and it talks a little bit about suffering. I believe there’s still a lot that we don’t know about suffering. But I do know that there’s one person in the Bible who knows everything about it.

The reason why I started reading this book is because I wanted to be an effective minister to people who are parenting their children with autism and special needs. This book has been very encouraging to me as it has helped me to understand how to be a slave to Jesus, how to have quiet time with Jesus, How to love others like Jesus, and how to understand exactly what it is that we have to do to minister to other people like Jesus did.

In Isaiah 55:9 it says, ” Just as the heavens are higher than the earth, my thoughts and my ways are higher than yours.” That verse ends with: “my thoughts and my ways are higher than yours.” It is a reminder that he knows all and we are here not to try to understand it all but to learn how to suffer well through it all. 

There are a lot of times where I’ve shared my story with others and I’m emotionally wounded all over again from explaining what is taking place in my life in our family. you can be very hard sometimes to talk about our story over and over again but I know that God is with us. He tells us in Philippians 4:6-7 and I paraphrase “Be anxious for nothing but in everything pray with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God and the peace of God which passes all understanding will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

Sometimes we need to ask ourselves some questions and write down our answers on paper. I asked myself recently are you causing your own stress and suffering by trying to control everything? What are the stressors in your life right now in detail? Are you talking to anybody about your stressors? Are those people helpful to you or are they hindering you? Last question is change possible? Is there anyway you can reduce the suffering and stress in your life?

Avoiding Burnout

“I am burnt out, tired and feel far from God,” I admitted a few years back to my husband Kevin. One of the greatest mistakes of being a Christian is to think that because you believe in God, you are close to God. It’s all about investing in a relationship with God and spending time reading and studying the Bible.

If you’re a parent that has a child with autism, I’m especially writing to you. But whatever your work is and however you serve God, you too can be vulnerable to burnout. If you feel tired mentally, physically, and spiritually a nap won’t help it. I know it’s extremely hard when your trying to be well in all of these areas and faced with helping your child cope through their challenges. The stress is real and it starts to take a toll on your whole life.

In my latest book project, I will be teaching that the real culprit of burnout is over parenting, over working, obsessive and controlling ways, lack of care to ourselves and a lack of relationship with God. I will explain how all of these things and more will crowd out a loving relationship with your family and a close relationship with God and how you can have a peaceful life in the midst of it all. It can happen to any of us in our families, jobs, and church service.

We need to regularly say NO to the stressful demands of our lives in order to say YES to enjoying a peaceful and restful relationship with God. In addition to blessing us, it will bless God, our families and the people all around us.

Thanks for being part of our journey. Because I deeply believe our kids need us all at our best right now, serving God and loving others with everything we got.

– Maritza
