Precious Treasure - the Story of Patrick


By Elizabeth Matthews

Forward by Kimberely Hahn

Elizabeth Matthews never expected her son Patrick to be diagnosed with autism. And she didn’t expect him to become her “escalator to heaven,” either, as he was decorating the walls of the family home with mud and crayon. In Precious Treasure: The Story of Patrick, Matthews describes with candor and humor the joys, challenges, and heartaches of raising a child with special needs.

This collection of letters written by the author to her son is a poignant work that will inspire all who struggle to understand the presence of the Cross in their lives. In Precious Treasure, Matthews offers a hopeful reminder that God’s plans are infinitely greater than we are able to comprehend.
