I was born legally blind and became functionally blind at age thrity-two. I have a very supportive husband, two children , and a leader dog. I function very well as director of disabled students at Hope College in Holland, Michigan. Although I have obviously become sensitized to people with disabilities, I still make mistakes in dealing with my students. I have learned caregiving in an area that takes constant correction. I have found that it is important to give myself permission to make mistakes.

Compassionate and healing God,
Help us to see Your face
In the faces of our sisters and brothers
Who are sick or injured.
Guide us to reach out to them
With hearts of compassion
