“To live a purposeful life, we must lose our fear of being misunderstood; we must allow ourselves the freedom of not being boxed in.”

“Don’t Box Me In” is a 13-month perpetual calendar designed to bring daily motivation to your life. With 13 inspirational photos and short stories, this calendar will inspire and encourage you every day of the year.

As you flip each page, you will find glimpses of each individual’s personality and contributions that remind you to be grateful for all things, big and small. You will be reminded to cultivate a heart of thankfulness, finding room to appreciate and include the unique gifts of all persons.

As you embrace our theme of living outside of the box, we hope you will be roused to do more in your own life, accomplish more, and love deeper. It is in the assurance of God’s presence you’ll find joy and peace in your journey.

Romans 8:28
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Plan your days with us over the next few months to celebrate and appreciate all of life’s joys!

IMPACT: Will change the face of disability; anyone can live and flourish despite their challenges or circumstances.



“We came together to show you who we are”.

“Don’t Box Me In” is our way of telling our story, with various tones and techniques, to bridge the gap between our differences and yours. Through the knowledge we gained in completing this project, we’ve developed more confidence and learned to be more independent.

As you turn each page, our unified voice rings strong, although some of us are non-verbal. “Just because we don’t make a sound, doesn’t mean we don’t have a voice.” On each page, you will find glimpses of our dreams, goals, and accomplishments.

We hope you will reflect on your dreams, goals, and accomplishments while journeying through the illustrations and narratives with us and never forget the power of your own voice.

Isaiah 58:1
The Lord has urged us to use our voices to “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet”.

IMPACT: Everyone has a story to tell and if you look closely enough, you will realize the differences between us are fewer than the similarities we share.



“Our uniqueness is what makes us special, not our disability.”

This bundle set allows readers to get the entire collection in one purchase. It’s one of the best ways to get to know us in a snapshot because the series naturally go together.

Don’t Box Me In

The theme of our 2024 IDD Awareness Celebration is a powerful mantra that speaks to who we’ve become and are yet becoming as an individual with IDD and as a community of caregivers and advocates.

We’ve created this collection of IDD Photo Calendar and Anthology for at home use, homeschooling, church groups, corporate inspiration, community engagement, and gift-giving. We hope you enjoy reading and sharing our collection as much as we have enjoyed creating it. May it become a favorite part of your personal library.
