Mobility Matters: Stepping Out in Faith
What’s it all about?
In many ways, I have viewed my book, Moblility Matters: Stepping Out in Faith, as a hearty meal that I’ve prepared for my readers. As any good cook knows, people are drawn to a meal that looks enticing, smells heavenly and tastes exquisite. The ingredients don’t have to be fancy but they must come from quality stock and be prepared in the right way. All memorable meals start with an appetizer, have several courses and finish with the perfect dessert.
Likewise, I have created my book with these principles in mind. My raw experiences represented the basic ingredients. They came in a variety of textures and tastes–hard, soft, bitter and sweet. Of course, not many could stand alone. I needed to combine them to create the right dishes. I sprinkled life lessons liberally to each one, added dashes of humor to bring out the flavor and threw in some flakes of daring, which kicked up the action a notch. I mixed in the oil of God’s love to soften some of the hardness, and stirred it all thoroughly with prayer to make sure it came together right. Then I let it simmer.
Today I’d like to you to sample an appetizer from the delicious meal I’ve prepared.
The synopsis on the back of the book will give you a taste of the bigger, heartier meal in store for you.
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?
The entire meal will be available to order soon.
Hope to see you at my table!
