Emily Colson PromoFollowing each message this week is Emily Colson’s “Ted Talk” from Inclusion Fusion, Dancing With Max. Emily shares a story…amazing stories of what God has done through her son’s life. God wrote HIS story all over the lives of Emily and her son (Max), now in his 20s and diagnosed with autism. In this presentation, Emily encourages other families to share their stories of how God has been at work through their experience of disability while being honest about the “tough stuff.”
