Adventurous international teacher, Amy Bovaird, is diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa, a hereditary eye disease that will blind her.  In spite of that, she manages to continue teaching overseas. Then her father’s final illness brings her back home for good. There, friends and acquaintances begin to notice that she doesn’t always recognize them and sometimes stumbles…as if drunk! Insensitive students ridicule her in the classroom. Unwilling to accept that she is truly losing her eyesight, Amy resists when the Bureau of Blindness schedules a mobility specialist to begin training her to use a white cane.  How can she, an independent world traveler, use something that screams ‘I am a blind person’?  Will her faith prove strong enough to allow her to move  forward and accept herself as she is?

Launch Time

by Matthew Harris
Author of Seeing Through Blindness & Leaves of Prophesy

Stepping out in faith is what matters most,
as you walk by IT, instead of by sight,
guided by staff of Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
while tapping the tip of your cane, from right to left and left to right,

between the shoulders of the narrow way:
a thoroughfare Jesus said few would find.
Yet, you happen to stumble upon it one day,
as the Lord opens the eyes of your mind.

While chaperoning you in faraway lands,
He escorts each step on every path you go.
Whether on mountaintops, high seas, or desert sands,
RP sometimes still might bring you low:

and when it does, remember, whatever you do,
Mobility Matters and so do you.

*This poem was read at the start if the launch on October 12, 2014

    I very much enjoyed reading Amy Bovaird’s new book and I have found this quote to be just one of many examples of her strength and wisdom. I highly recommend “Mobility Matters” for everyone because Amy Bovaird’s wonderful life story of triumph in the midst of adversity is one that will bring a smile with its gentle humor and leave one misty eyed with its genuinely humble yet powerful Christian witness

    I cherish my eyesight every single day! I want to see the beauty of the world! I would have not been able to see all of the beautiful sights I saw in NZ and AUS without my eye sight!

    Hi Gigi,
    You are truly blessed! Help us get the word out by sharing this post. The more awareness we bring, the more people understand how blessed they are to be able to see – something many of us take for granted. And who knows, maybe geneticists will find a cure in our lifetime and we, too, may be able to see again.
    Thanks so much for your comment!

    Hi Kerry,
    I was trying to figure out how you would fit three blog posts in one, and you did it so well and concisely!
    Thanks for the lovely compliments. You are doing great, such a go-getter! Look at all that you have accomplished in a year’s time! Whoo-hoo! You are taking the necessary steps. God will continue to provide you with the next one, and the next one after that, and so on! Looking forward to your post on Anne of Green Gables when you travel there!
