Many times in life we cannot see what is in our future, or what is coming down the road. In those moments, we have to walk by faith, not by sight. Being blind, Debby has had many of those experiences, as a parent, counselor, grandparent and someone who simply loves life. Her faith in a God who loves us shifts that frightening scenario into one of confidence and peace. In this book, through stories and poetry, she describes some of those moments where she has walked by faith, not by sight, both spiritually and literally. Chapter 1 is about a water slide. "In reflecting on that experience, I at first thought that I perhaps should have asked more questions. Perhaps I should have known that it was three stories up with lots of curves and bumps. But maybe not. If I had known all that, I might would have opted out. And just think of all the fun I would have missed." Debby (Zook) Green was born in Central Pennsylvania into a Mennonite pastor's family, one of five children. With normal sight at birth, she gradually lost her vision and by the age of 20, had only light perception. That did not stop her from completing college and having a career in counseling, first as a rehabilitation counselor with the state of Kentucky and then as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. She was married and has a daughter and two grandsons. Stories about those early years of sight loss can be found in a previously published book, Debby. Currently, she resides in Elizabethtown, Kentucky where she is active in her church, Calvary Assembly of God. She provides counseling services through her private practice, Transformation Christian Counseling and makes frequent trips to Tennessee to hang out with her grandsons.
