Watch the Hour of Power online and on television (Saturday at 6PM PST on TBN, Sunday at 8AM EST/PST on Lifetime)
Message : Leap of Faith
It is an honor to be back here on the Hour of Power. It was such a great experience last time and so it's just an honor to be here, to be able to speak to you this morning. As I mentioned, I went blind around four years ago. Think about how much you use your eyesight; you use it every day in everything you do. So, to lose that was hard. I had to adapt a lot. I had to come up with tricks and new ways to do things, to learn how to read again, and walk again, and all these different things.
Interview : Jacob Olson

Then at the age of 12, he lost his right eye to the disease. Jacob has turned his darkness into light, and has inspired thousands. His website, outofsightfaith.com helps other blind students to function in a sighted world. Jacob's book, Open Your Eyes: Ten uncommon lessons to discovering a happier life is available everywhere.
