Is Your Family a Little Bent Too?
Motherhood is one of the hardest jobs on the planet, but one of the most important ones as well. What do you do when your child doesn't live up to society's expectations of perfection and instead, gives you gifts beyond measure?
When Rene' Steelman's sixth child was born, he looked perfect on the outside. Yet, the inside of his body was damaged by Cerebral Palsy and other health challenges. In Heaven Sent and Bent, Rene' shares the story of her life with a house full of imperfect children and grandchildren. This is a book of faith, humor, and inspiration for any mother who has struggled, loved her children fiercely, and laughed through her tears.
Every child is a gift, but sometimes not the one we expected. How can we love and laugh in the face of life's surprises? Ren Steelman has some answers

Ren Steelman takes us into the pain and laughter, the courage and soulfulness of motherhood, as one who has been there and done that, both valiantly and humanly. And there's more here: a lovely guide to living a spirit-centered life in the midst of busy days and trying circumstances. I couldn't put it down.
