Naomi Mitchum, author, Christian educator and consultant in church special needs.

Wow! Thanks for the privilege of communicating with you.

My website has a four tier personality

  • Books
  • Emergency Planning for persons with special needs in churches
  • Materials for creating an inviting environment for persons with disabilities
  • Practical Christian education in the field of disabilities

In the current book section, you will find the following:

  • EVERY CHILD CAN BLOOM IN THE INCLUSIVE CLASSROOM is a guidebook with practical tips for creating a comfort zone for all children with and without disabilities. For teachers or anyone working with children and their parents.
  • QUICK LOOK FOR VOLUNTEER EMERGENCY RESPONDERS: A GUIDE FOR AIDING PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES is the result of working with community emergency volunteers who wanted quick and correct information with picture boards.
  • HARPS IN THE WILLOWS STRENGTHS FOR REINVENTING LIFE is the result of my work with chronic illness support groups.
  •  THE RELUCTANT IMMIGRANT was born from my experience living part time in the Hill Country where Germans settled in the 1840’s. 
  • THE LONG ROAD HOME ROMANCE COLLECTION features three stories by Judi Ann Ehresman and one by Naomi Mitchum, THE RELUCTANT IMMIGRANT.
  •  Get With It, Spencer! is especially good for children with vision problems or for those with perfect vision who like a good laugh. Poor Spencer, who  needs glasses, crows at all the wrong times. People throw things.
I live in Houston, Texas with my geologist and bird-watching husband, Bob, and we work together with the Circle of Friends students each week at Chapelwood United Methodist, where I just retired as volunteer director of special needs ministry, but continue to help out.
I am also a Houston Symphony buff and would go without food just to hear a good string quartet at Chamber Music Houston. With a degree in Christian education, I set out to do something important with my life. I’m still working on it. The trip has been fun and the future exciting. I worked as director of Christian education in Coffeyville, Kansas then director of youth work at Boston Avenue Methodist Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Along the way I wrote teacher enrichment materials and curriculum for the United Methodist Church, and served as chair of the Texas Conference Committee on Disability Concerns of the United Methodist Church.  I like starting new things from a youth choir, conference committee to the Circle of Friends programs. I recently founded Ramps’nthings Press, a not for profit DBA publisher doing disability books and materials.
Other tabs will help you find my blog and “About  Me” and my writing.

Have fun and come back again as I add new stuff all the time. Cheerio. Naomi Mitchum
