Greetings from Marti Pieper in springtime in Seneca, South Carolina, where we’re bonding in isolation as we recover from the recent tornado and remain on lockdown due to COVID-19! I’m grateful that, during our years in Florida, I bonded with today’s interview subject, my dear friend, Janet Perez Eckles. She’s a lovely lady with a unique story and message, and I know you’ll enjoy her interview!

Welcome to the CAN blog, Janet! Please tell us about your book.

Oops, Wrong Man!

Being blind never stopped me from traveling alone across the country or abroad to speaking engagements.

But in one of those rare occasions that my hubby accompanied me, a funny thing happened to me as we headed back home. At the airport, we crossed the security point. So far, so good.

Suddenly, someone gripped my other arm from behind.

How rude, I thought. Who could that be?

But rather than me focused so much on speaking, God’s wisdom speaks to me now. And recently, He did that very thing.

My friend and I were on the way home from dinner. I sat on the passenger’s seat beside her. We stopped at a red light and she quickly reached in her back seat. “There’s one,” she said as she rolled down her window. She quickly handed the homeless man a plastic bag filled with a can of Spam, a washcloth, a water bottle, potato chips, a napkin, protein bars and among other items, a track explaining God’s salvation.

I’m so impressed,” I said. “How long have you been doing this pretty cool thing?” Read More →
