Soul Cries is a book of 155 Christian devotions written for anyone praying into the life of an exceptional child. The reader may be a parent, grandparent, educator, or pastor, loving and praying over a child with physical, emotional, learning, or behavioral challenges. This book is written to encourage readers and ignite their faith as they pray. As a mother and a medical professional, Theresa Regan has seen first-hand the challenges families with struggling children face. Her six-year-old son has tackled various challenges associated with the autistic spectrum. As a Neuropsychologist working at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria, Illinois, she interacts with children and parents in the context of medical obstacles. Within her city and community, she sees families trying to help their children overcome learning problems, tackle anxieties, and develop social and relational skills in difficult situations. She is aware of the struggles that parents and children wrestle with, gain from, and often wrestle with again. This book was born out of living, seeing, and knowing. “I have seen your wrestling. I have seen the heart you have for your children,” says Regan. “I pray that this book will declare God’s goodness over your household and encourage you in your faith.”
