My name is Hannah Benson, I’m 26 and I have Autism. Through this crazy journey, though, I have been blessed by God and have learned some things about myself that I wouldn’t have learned otherwise.
Through this blog I am hoping to help you get to know me and maybe learn a little bit about coping skills and Autism! I also hope to help others understand Autism better, and encourage people in their walk with God.
To start out, when I was little, I was TERRIFIED of loud noises! Like really bad! I would cry and scream, and it just wasn’t fun. We started going to a church and their services were like going to a rock concert, but slowly and surely God helped me overcome that fear and now I can pretty much go anywhere and not have to worry!
I want to help you accomplish the same, and so much more!
We can all do this together because GOD IS SO GOOD!
