By Faith, Not By Sight ~ Scott MacIntyre

This is the life story of musician Scott MacIntyre, some may know him as a top 10 contestant on America Idol.  His story is how he was born blind and his parents always encouraged him to not use his blindness as a handicap.  He shares his story of how he has overcome obstacle in his life.  Scott tells of how he was diagnosed with the scare of a brain tumor (directly after graduation), having a rare kidney disease, having a kidney transplant, going to London for school, learning to play the piano and recording songs without reading sheet music, going on American Idol, learning to deal with society, media and dealing with his family and his belief in his love for GOD, his faith, family and what keeps him going without giving up.

This is a very encouraging story of dealing with life's up and downs and understanding that trusting in GOD is always the answer to your prayers.  I enjoyed this story.
