Matt Miller is a pastor and communicator in Memphis, TN. He has a new podcast called Take Courage. In the recent “Hope and Healing” episode he interviewed me about writing White Picket Fences.
I guess it’s fair to call it courageous to write this book, only because, as Matt points out, I have the luxury as an educated, affluent, white person to ignore issues related to race and class and privilege if I want to. It feels like a pretty small, and safe, offering to tell our story, but I was grateful for the chance to talk with Matt about how having a child with a disability has changed my understanding of a good life, how I began to reevaluate the “goodness” of my childhood as an adult, and the invitation we all have to enter into healing.
