Meet the Tribe that is taking the DIS out of disABILITY!

TRIBE MEMBERS LAST SATURDAY NIGHT AS THEY PAINTED THE TILES THAT WILL ADORN THE WALL BEHIND OUR UPCOMING WOOD BURNING STOVE PROJECT.



When I first became a single Momma and took a good look around our aged homestead, I could've given up.  Popular opinion, in those days, was that I should give up.  

I did not give up.

"Friends" abandoned us.  My family STRONGLY suggested that I move back to civilization for the sake of my children.  But I held strong.  I knew that my family was meant to be on this journey.  I couldn't explain how I knew it, but I KNEW it.

Do you believe in God?  I can't say that I always have.  But I definitely do now.  I KNOW that miracles can happen because I've experienced the magic of following my gut instincts and seeing where they lead me.  And now it's time to teach others how to experience the joy of true faith and love.

I wish I had never stopped blogging.  But how was I supposed to know that my little family would find the cause of autism?  How could I have known that the cause itself would ignite a firestorm of social and ecological change that would not only affect my family, but potentially billions of families across the world?

TRIBE MEMBERS CREATING AN ARTISTIC COVER FOR OUR WATER WELL.


Since the early days of this renovation, I knew that my children and I weren't simply restoring this house.  It has been restoring us.  And much to our surprise, it has also restored a lot of other people along the way.  

The kids and I are no longer restoring this house on our own.  When we reached out to the world and began to explain the profound neurological and physical changes that have happened since we began living life the old fashioned way, our lives changed drastically.  Friends both old and new began showing up at Sugar Creek and we began to experience raw joy.

We gather every other weekend beneath the starry sky and make music, art, have philosophical discussions concerning the plight of man, walk through God's creation and celebrate the majesty of the universe, and we smile.  We smile because we all know that autism is NOT a DISability.  For we have unlocked it's great secrets and know with certainty that this world is about to change for the better.

I want to help you.  Whoever you are, wherever you are, my family has literally discovered proof that God exists.  And we will do everything we can to discover the divine purpose of YOUR life.

EATING ALL NATURAL WITH THE HELP OF OUR DEAR FRIENDS ALLISON AND NOLAN.

We are all created for a reason.  I am no more special than anyone else on planet Earth.  But I am determined to leave this world a better place for my having been in it.  

Faith the size of a mustard seed CAN move mountains.  Having faith in yourself and in your Creator can "cure" autism, and by "cure" I mean the over stimulating side effects can literally be replaced by profound knowledge that can and WILL change this world.  For those on the Autistic Spectrum have experienced a form of mental evolution that will change our species (and our world) forever.  They are literally superheroes.  And I cannot wait to unlock the hidden power of autism for you and, indeed, for us all.

Autism is a gift.  And learning how to tap into the mind-blowing gift of autism has been the greatest blessing of my life.

I am currently rewriting a very powerful book of NONFICTION called AUTISM CURED.  It is the story of my family's journey to restore our historic homestead and ourselves along the way.  In a few weeks, it will be FREE for you to read on Amazon.  FREE.  

TRIBE GATHERINGS HAVE CHANGED OUR KIDS' PERCEPTIONS OF FRIENDSHIPS, TOO!


We have learned much.  And as the Neurotypical mother of a son on the spectrum, I cannot keep these secrets to myself.  I cannot sell these secrets, either, and profit from something that was given to me for free.

And so it begins.

I'd like for you to meet our tribe.  I'd like for you to know that deep in the piney, rolling hills of Northern Louisiana a movement has begun.  We are here to bring hope to the masses, and in turn the masses that have gathered in our shabby home to experience that hope.  We have both found it and begun to spread it at a rapid pace.

JOYFUL IS THE WORD TO DESCRIBE OUR FRIENDS WHEN WE GATHER IN THE DOGTROT.  We know the secrets of life and we're happy to share this divine wisdom!


Autism is not a DISability.  It is an ability to connect with Creation in a way I never knew possible.  It is THE environmental and sociological movement that we have been waiting for.  WE, you and I and the tribe and millions of others who are soon to learn these lessons, are here to BE THE CHANGE WE WISH TO SEE IN THIS WORLD.

I will leave this post with a few pictures from gatherings at the Dogtrot.  See the joy in our eyes.  Feel the love for humanity in our hearts.  Smell the sweet scent of moonlit bonfires.

But most of all, know that we have discovered more than the cause, purpose and cure of autism.  We have done more than find a way to live a simple, mortgage-free life on a historic homestead that we're restoring with our bare hands.  We have found our purpose.  We have found love and begun to spread the message that genuine friendships matter.

And we have found the true meaning of life itself.

WE GIVE THANKS FOR EVERYTHING THAT WE HAVE AND FOR THE UNKNOWN BLESSINGS THAT ARE ALREADY ON THE WAY!

Happy day, y'all.  Do yourselves a favor and get into nature, look up, and just start talking.  Deja Vu is real.  Your gut instincts are real.  Your connection to nature is powerful and divine.  

You have a purpose on this Earth.  You matter.  And you are meant to be happy.

And we want to help you live the life of YOUR dreams, for our dreams are all interconnected.  We are ALL brothers and sisters in humanity.  And WE are about to make a very positive difference in this beautiful world.

With love,

Jacquelyn
