Looking for inspired answers to developmental disabilities like ADHD?

"A heart wholly in protest" (see The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 134) was a theme that ran through this spirituality.com chat on prayer addressing disabilities in children. The chat featured Sarah Hyatt, a practitioner and teacher of Christian Science in Charleston, South Carolina. Sarah has been in the public practice of Christian Science for over 20 years. This chat has been edited for readability; to read or listen to the whole chat go to spirituality.com/chats/disabilities.
