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

Wow! Thanks for the privilege of communicating with you.

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. Their philosophy is that every meeting of persons is a gift exchange, and gifts are exchanged in our many programs designed to meet the needs of students with disabilities and their parents. 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. My website has a four-tiered personality featuring

  • Books
  • Emergency Planning for persons with special needs in churches
  • Materials for being with persons with functional challenges
  • Christian education and church environment materials

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

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
