Sandi Patty: The Legendary Christian Singer Finds Her Personal Voice
You asked, we listened: this is the kick-off episode of our For the Love of Music series! We’ll hear from artists of all stripes and genres, and find out what inspires them to create songs that touch our hearts like nothing else can. No doubt today’s guest has given you goosebumps a time or two. Whether it was her stunning rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” that launched her to fame in the mid-80s, or when she belted out gospel classics like “We Shall Behold Him,” sandi Patty is a vocal force of nature—but, ironically, she never felt she had a true voice in her own life. Today sandi tells us some deeply personal, tragic and triumphant stories she wrote in her book “The Voice: Listening for God’s Voice and Finding Your Own.” sandi shows us despite the darkness we face and despite others who may try to silence us for their own gain, our voices are valuable and worthy to be shared—and when we do, we’ll likely find a community of others waiting for a relatable voice to help them through their own darkness.

S01 Episode 2 - IEPs with Child Advocate Sandi Ames | Pt. 1
Welcome friends, On today’s episode of Advocate like a Mother Podcast™, Michelle and I got to chat with the Sandi Ames. Sandi is the director of CAN which stands for Collaborate, Advocate, Navigate. CAN is a non-profit that provides education and support to individuals with disabilities, their families and those that serve them. She is an incredible child advocate and parent mentor. We sat around Michelle’s kitchen table with Sandi and talked all about IEP’s -if you don’t know what an IEP it stands for “individual educational program”. We discuss goals and the actual assessment in our first part of this two part series. Sandi is a powerhouse advocate when it comes to IEPs and the school. She has been working in the field since the mid 80s! Having a child in “special education” means you need a lot of prayer and prep. She has a “house” metaphor that explains a great program for a student with a disability. In the “house” metaphor, first you need a foundation, or an assessment where everyone is in agreement. Second, you have your walls, which are the goals. The areas where your focus to help improve the child. Then you have the roof, which is the services. The amount of time each service gets. Then you have the neighborhood where they would be best placed. To any parent struggling with a child that has an IEP, you are not alone. We are here to help encourage you, and to help find your community.
