Noted authors, speakers and parents Joe and Cindi Ferrini have graciously agreed to join us for Inclusion Fusion. Joe and Cindi will be speaking on the topic…The Unexpected Journey of Relationships – When Special Needs Change Our Course! Relationships matter – marriage, children, friendships, teachers, doctors, everyone! In their presentation, the Ferrini’s will share ideas to strengthen and deepen relationships that will help us enjoy our Unexpected Journey for the long haul.
The Ferrini’s have been married for 32 years and have raised three grown children…a son with special needs currently living at their home in Ohio, a daughter, son-in-law and grandson in Florida and a daughter enrolled in her senior year at Wright State University.
Joe and Cindi speak nationally for FamilyLife at “Weekend to Remember Marriage” Conferences. They have spoken for churches, conferences, retreats and ministries around the country. We saw them two weeks ago at the Through The Roof Summit at Cedarville University. Cindi has been interviewed nationally on Midday Connection (Moody Radio), and together they have been interviewed on FamilyLife Today, and various radio and television shows, and their recent interview with Focus On The Family is scheduled to air in January 2012 for Sanctity of Life month. Cindi coordinates and participates in Pause For Prayer for WCRF radio in Cleveland.
They have written for the popular online and hard copy magazines including FamilyLife Today, Focus On The Family, and others. Cindi has authored a bible study, organizational planners and most recently wrote with Joe: Unexpected Journey, When Special Needs Change Our Course (February 2009).
Through their ministry, Joe and Cindi have focused on helping and informing those who are caregivers to those with special needs….children, adults, and yes, even those caring for parents! AND to inform those who don’t have a special needs situation how to UNDERSTAND, help, care, pray for, and love those who are.
