Sharing Vision with Area Scouts

Lowcountry area scouts decoding Braille

Here, Lowcountry area Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts "try their hands" at decoding a braille message, as they work to earn their Merit Badges for Disabilities Awareness.

I was honored to join my own outreach with that of Dixie Land Guide Dog Users, whose "Paws To Educate" Initiative is made possible in part by the Charleston, South Carolina Association for the Blind.

Laurel demonstrates the Perkins Brailler


In addition to Braille, we discussed long, white canes and guide dogs, how to be a sighted guide and a variety of other topics related to the blindness community. Here I am demonstrating the Perkins Brailler.

My thanks to The Association, Dixie Land GDU, these enthusiastic young people, their leaders and parents, for the opportunity to be part of such an interactive discussion!

Thank God and thank you! Your ongoing prayers and support help keep my ministry, and outreach like this, growing and going!

Stay tuned for more posts like this. Until next time, God bless you and keep His Song in your heart!

A Little About Me

My photo
God continues to bless me with a busy and fulfilling life. Even after thirty-plus years, my music and ministry keep going and growing. Blind from birth, I am n avid user of Braille and the long, white cane, in addition to a variety of mainstream and access technology. While my blindness does not define me, I consider it to be a unique gift from God. With this gift comes my opportunity to serve as an advocate on behalf of my fellow members of the Blindness community, living and serving among blind and sighted folks of all ages, on all walks of life.
