Who is Elizabeth Griffin?

First, I’m a woman with a big God who carries me through this roller coaster of a life by consistently pouring His grace into it.

I’m a writer, editor, teacher, speaker, and personal coach.

I’m Jay’s wife, Taylor and Zachary’s mother, and Cassidy’s mother-in-law.

I’m a carrier of fragile X syndrome, which is why our second son, Zack, has fragile X syndrome and autism. This website is full of stories about him and the impact his life has on all of us. He teaches me so much, and I don’t know anyone who embodies more love and joy than he does. I hope my stories give you hope, support you in the trenches, let you know you’re not alone, and occasionally give you a chuckle.

I also write “contemplations” on life and God and whatever else fancies me. I hope these inspire and encourage you.

Thanks for reading!

My precious baby grinning from ear to ear

I was an anxious mess at this stage of Zack’s life because I couldn’t figure out why he was still holding on to infantile reflexes at one year old (note the clenched fists held high). But there’s no doubt that he was a cutie pie!

Need help?

Has your child recently been diagnosed with a developmental disability or autism?

If so, you may feel your world is shattered, and you may have no idea what to do or where to go for help. You may wish you could stop what is happening, and you may be afraid of what the future holds.

I understand. I felt the same when Zack was diagnosed with fragile X syndrome and autism.

But there is hope, and there are many people ready to walk this road with you. I am one of them.
