I loved reading how his mom helped him to look at people when they talk, even if he can only see a square inch at a time. She taught him manners, as well as treating him and communicating with him as if he could see. She took him to the beach and let him run to experience the freedom of being able to just let go and not worry. Scott’s story is about how God used his family, to give him life, faith, determination, and experiences most would only imagine. Learn how he overcame his disability, how he made it into the music industry and how God taught him that in all things, that He is in control.
