What I Blog About
Vision Loss, Faith & Family
A BIG WELCOME to all my new readers at Amy’s Adventures!
The topics in my blog change from time to time so I thought it might be time for an update. Most of what I write is about coping with progressive vision and hearing loss as well as my faith. I share stories of my life, which I view as an “adventure”. No two days are the same when vision and hearing is constantly in flux. Although ‘adventure’ may be an overused term nowadays, it fits my outlook. Too many who suffer this hidden genetic disease feel helpless and trapped and choose to stay at home.
I want to serve as a catalyst in the positive wind of change to blow over the vision-impaired community and sighted world alike to bridge understanding.
Sometimes I give tips on coping with vision loss. Other times I share a humorous story, often about vision loss. On Fridays, I have a column called “Friday Friends. Spotlight on …” When I find people that inspire me with vision and or hearing loss, I like to interview them to inform and encourage my readers.
I am working on the third and final book in my mobility series now called Second Sight: When Physical Vision Blurs, Spiritual Vision Comes Into Focus. The tales will offer humor and insight into my sometimes zany vision loss experiences but include a faith take-away.
In my outreach to churches, I am also working on a relatively new genre for me–a devotional book called Gratitude in Overcoming Obstacles: Faith Pushes You Through. It will contain 31 devotionals on overcoming loss–childbearing, divorce and coping with the death of a loved one. God often uses loss to draw us to Him and build our faith. I’m so excited about this book and hope to finish it soon! Will keep you posted!
There’s another book I’ll probably share excerpts with you as I’m writing it. That is my third work in progress and it will also be, like my Mobility series, a trilogy. It’s called The Tree Man series. The first will be about my father’s life simply called The Tree Man. The next will be The Tree Man’s Daughter and the final one will be The Tree Man’s Wife. They each will highlight a particular life–my father, my sister, my mother. The first will be my dad’s book.
You’ll discover his unique and upbeat personality along with two unforgettable dogs and a ’39 Ford truck with an old horn that has the town honking in a good way about Don Bovaird.
