A Wonderful Treasure to Anchor Your Heart in Christ Jun 24, 2008
I had the pleasure of meeting this author/speaker, and joy sparkles from her eyes, though she's blind. This book is a treasure to anchor your heart to Christ. The book takes you on a life's journey filled with bumps in the road and roadblocks, but Jan Eckles overcomes each obstacle placed in her path by keeping her heart and faith anchored in Christ. Join Jan on her life's journey. Read about how she lost her sight at 30. Then, she lost something even more precious than her sight--her son. Her life has not been easy, but she has perserved and anchored her heart in Christ through all of her earthly trials and tribulations. She didn't work when she was sighted, but she's found her life's calling and is able to see more through insight than sighted people. Google Jan Eckles to enjoy her inspirational blog and newsletter.

Inspirational, Informational and Insightful! Jul 30, 2007
Even though the main motivator for most readers to buy this book is the fact that it is extremely inspirational, I also want to comment that Jan's writing style itself makes the book a pleasure to read. I love how she is able to convey ideas with richness and simplicity at the same time.
I also enjoyed how vividly she describes Bolivia, both through her own eyes, and through her mother's memories. When I read about her family's arrival to St. Louis, especially the culture shock and language barriers, it occurred to me that she described these things in such a way that *anyone* would be able to understand them. For example, I enjoyed the line about the new language sounding like indecipherable noises, especially as it is clear that this is a language the author now masters.
There were so many things I loved about this book, and so many lines that stood out to me... as I was reading, there were many times where I either laughed out loud, gasped in shock or welled up - I think any reader would do the same.
Hearing all of the things the author went through, especially in her experience of gradually losing her sight, it is hard for anyone to imagine, yet somehow she puts the reader in her shoes, and we can feel her emotions - shocked, horrified, fearful, angry, hopeful, determined, saddened, grateful, happy - all of these. What a brave woman she is, and an inspiration to everyone.
It is obvious that Jan is a natural communicator (no wonder she excels as an interpreter), someone who wants to reach out with her heart and share with others whatever she can to help so that they may draw on her experience. But part of her success in communicating is that she has something important to express. I thank her for being willing to share her story so candidly, and with such grace, for others to hear.
I look forward to reading more from this writer.
Uplifting & Positive Mar 9, 2007
I found the book to be very positive and uplifting. The author really gave me a sense of being able to find the good in all things, even if we don't recognize it right away. God does have a plan for us after all!
Trials of Today, Treasures for Tomorrow Touched My Life Mar 4, 2007
I loved this book because Jan Eckles opens her heart to you as you're turning the pages. You will be encouraged as she shares her life, both thru her triumphs and tragedies. As I read, I felt the Lord Jesus speaking to me through Jan's words. I reread parts of the story that I felt gave me hope in my own life. I've already bought a copy for a friend, and I highly recommend this book to you.
Refreshing Apr 21, 2006
What a joy it was to read how God worked in the life of Jan. It was refreshing to see her honesty as she revealed intimate details of her walk with the Lord. God has truly blessed her and she has chosen to look beyond physical difficulties and family loss.
This book will not only encourage those who face trials but offer hope in God's eternal love toward all of us. Jan is a true example of a child of God.
