Learn how faith and psychological insight can combine to help Christians overcome physical disabilities! After being diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa, Dr. Elaine Leong Eng, author of a€œMartha, Marthaa€: How Christians Worry, knew she had to make important life changes. This genetic disease would soon cause her eyesight to fail. Her impending blindness meant that she would no longer be able to practice as an obstetrician/gynecologist. Her family life would never be the same, nor would her self-image. A Christian Approach to Overcoming Disability: A Doctor's Story is the poignant and inspiring story of Dr. Enga€™s ultimately triumphant struggle with an untreatable illness and a life-changing disability. Once I heard the diagnosis, I knew it was Goda€™s way of granting my prayer to be a full-time mom to my babies. God had prepared my heart to accept this news. This so-called a€œtragedya€ in my life was very much for the good. I had the chance to a€œseea€ and care for my children during those precious young years. To play with them, sing songs, teach them, feed them, and do all those wonderful mothering things that many take for granted. And now that they are grown, I can see in my minda€™s eye all those great images and memories. I enjoyed motherhood so much that I would not have changed my life in any way if given the chance.
