"Shining a Positive Light on Down Syndrome" - Focus on the Family interviews Robert & Trevor Hendershot on World Down Syndrome Day, Tuesday, March 21, 2017

From author Robert Hendershot:
Greetings to all of you who have been supportive of Trevor and me over the years...however briefly, recently or even many years ago! 
Trevor and I are going to be the subjects of an interview "Shining a Positive Light on Down Syndrome", that will air on Focus on the Family's international radio show broadcast on World Down Syndrome Day, this Tuesday, March 21.

Locally in Southern California, the show can be heard on KKLA 99.5 FM at 4:30, 7:30, 11:30 am and then 10:00 pm.

The show can also be listened to on-line by clicking the links below.
We've also formed a 501(c)3 non-profit to help facilitate the "Trevorizing" of every sports stadium on planet earth, and thereby transforming the pro-life, special needs culture of the sport stadium at a time.
In addition, we've revised, reformatted, retitled and redeemed our original book to Angel for Higher, which can be obtained from our website.
Amazon just indicated that Angel for Higher is the "#1 New Release in Special Needs Children's Health", yay!

While this designation probably won't result in 'Harry Potter-esque' sales numbers, if we can help one person in our target audience who's struggling with addictions and/or facing the challenges of raising a special needs child, then I will have been repaid "...for the years the locusts have eaten." (Joel 2:25)
Finally, Trevor and I were also recently invited to appear on a live radio interview on The Bottom Line show, hosted by Roger Marsh, on World Down Syndrome Day, 3/21, from 4:00 to 5:00 pm.
This show can be heard locally on KBRT AM 740, listened on-line at or later in podcast at
"The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace."

 Mission Statement
"Angels for Higher will help facilitate the gainful employment of individuals with Down syndrome at sports stadiums across the United States and around the world."

                                                                                                                            Values Statement
"We believe that individuals with Down syndrome working in stadiums as both valuable employees and pro-life ambassadors will help the world appreciate how our omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent God has created each and every human being to be incredibly precious, infinitely valuable and eternally significant in His sight."   
This is an incredible book. I laughed and cried reading it. One of the statements that ministered to me was "Now that this has happened, God, how should I respond?"  ~Carla C.
Angel for Higher chronicles the joyfully inspirational journey of Robert Hendershot, a recovering alcoholic, and his son Trevor, who has Down syndrome, as they seek God's will for their lives.
The practical lessons God taught Robert in his recovery helped him to become a better father to Trevor, and vice versa, the spiritual lessons God taught him as Trevor's dad have helped him to remain sober since August 24, 1997.
During Trevor's early school years he was bullied and told he was worthless. Nevertheless, as a senior he was elected Homecoming King in the greatest landslide in his high school's history.
Trevor was also told that the best job he could ever hope for would be folding towels in a hotel laundromat. However, after graduating he was hired by Major League Baseball's Los Angeles Angels and by the National Hockey League's Anaheim Ducks to be the Greeter at their Team Stores.
Trevor's known, admired and often loved by hundreds of thousands of sports fans, fellow employees and professional athletes.
Robert and Trevor are in the process of forming a 501c3 non-profit corporation, Angels For Higher, to help facilitate the "Trevorizing" of additional stadiums and arenas. Their mission is to encourage the hiring of individuals with Down syndrome to work as greeters (and pro-life ambassadors) at sports venues across North America and ultimately around the world.
"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we can ask or imagine…" (Ephesians 3:20)

Ampersands: Pretty Is as Pretty Does

By Carolyn Howard-Johnson
Author of the multi award-winning HowToDoItFrugally Series of books for writers Have you noticed how ampersands turn to gibberish when they are entered into some blog services like Google's That is only the beginning of problems ampersands cause for editors, and publishers of all kinds. Many of the difficulties they cause go unnoticed except by the publishing pros we would all like to impress like agents, librarians, bookstore event directors, and the acquisition editors at Knopf!  That's why I added a new section to the second edition of the winningest book in my #HowToDoItFrugally Series of books for writers, The Frugal Editor. Because ampersands seem to be so popular these days, it's especially important for editors and authors who publish books to know a little about their history, how to use them, and how gatekeepers and readers of Lynn Truss's famous zero-tolerance approach to grammar might view them. So, I thought I'd s…
