Discovering special hope in the stories of those living with special needs, those who strive to minister to special needs families, and the God who is making all things new.

Hello! Welcome to A Special Hope Podcast. I'm your host, Sarah Broady. I love meeting new people and learning about their stories. I enjoy good conversation and building relationships with people. I absolutely love to encourage others in their journeys with special needs, or just the Christian life. I desire to give others the same special hope I have in Christ that is freely given to all who believe. A Special Hope Podcast combines all these things into one, and I’m so excited to bring hope and encouragement into the lives of my listeners.

About A Special Hope


Stories are powerful. We find ourselves in the stories of others. We find strength we didn’t know we had until we hear someone else do something we know we need to do, but are afraid. Because if they did it… maybe we can too. Stories have the ability to gird the weak, comfort the hurting, bring laughter into the shadows, motivate to action, enable understanding, garner empathy, and grant us desperately needed hope to keep putting one foot in front of the other.

What It’s All About

Stories are about relationships. We want to encourage building relationships – genuine, authentic relationships that will enable you to truly thrive. This podcast seeks to encourage both families and ministry leaders to build better relationships with each other. For families to live in better relationship with their family member with disabilities. For churches to live in better relationship with the families who darken the doors seeking comfort and understanding.

Who It’s For

For families living with special needs, you will find hope and encouragement for every day life.For ministry leaders, volunteers, educational and therapeutic staff, dive into the world of those you serve to know their pains, where to meet them, and how to meet them. Hear from other leaders who work hard to engage and meet needs. You’ll find resources and encouragement to help you do what you do better.

Why We Do It

A Special Hope seeks to find all these stories, and bind together the people who both tell and listen to them. There is hope in the vulnerability of sharing your story. And there is hope in listening to it. The ultimate hope we seek to proclaim is Jesus Christ, who came to save and restore a broken world. We’ll talk about brokenness. Hurt. Shame. Guilt. Hard. Beautiful. Joy. Incredible. And through every story told, we’ll trace this thread of hope in Christ that one day all things will be made new. (Revelation 21:5)

I love podcasting. I love finding new people, hearing their stories, and sharing them with you, my listeners. This only works if there are listeners! I know your time is valuable, and you have a lot of choices for what to listen to on your way to work, or in the waiting room at your kid's therapy. You do not go unnoticed!

To show my appreciation for your support, Patreon-only supporters will have access to bonus episodes, blog posts, and giveaways. Your financial support goes a long way towards helping me to produce the podcast every month. It also helps to support my family as a stay-at-home special needs mom.

Now you're asking, what costs go into podcasting?

Podcast Host: The audio files can't live on the website. They need their own special home on a podcast host that is specific to podcasting. This host is also used to get the podcast onto all the podcasting platforms, like iTunes, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, TunedIn, Castbox, and the like. 

Podcasting Recorder: Because I am not a solo show and I interview guests from remote locations, I have to have a way to record our conversation. But you can't just record any old phone call and expect the quality to be good. This allows me to have studio quality, plus it makes editing sooo much easier with various format options. I know this is techy, but for those of you wondering what that means, that's it.

Time: It takes a lot of time to find guests, plan an episode, conduct interviews, edit audio, write blog posts with show notes, and create social media graphics and videos to get the word out. I'm a one-woman show with a family and other side hustles. But reaching families - people like you! - with the good news of hope and ministry leaders with support and resources is important to me. You can help spread the good news.

For the cost of a cup of coffee every month, you can help me create quality content that encourages other families and provides resources for ministries. I would love for you to partner with me!
