Blindness became Captain Scotty Smiley’s journey of supreme testing. As he lay helpless in the hospital, he resented the theft of his dreams, but with his wife’s love and the support of family and friends, Scotty’s response became God’s transforming moment. Since the moment he forced his way through nurses and cords to take a simple shower, he has climbed Mount Rainier, won an ESPY Award, surfed, skydived, become a father, earned an MBA from Duke, taught leadership at West Point, and won the MacArthur Leadership Award. Scotty and Tiffany Smiley have lived out a faith so real that it will inspire you to question your own doubts, push you to serve something bigger than yourself, and encourage you to cling to a Hope Unseen.
“Scotty Smiley’s story is one all Americans should hear. It will inspire them in tough times and help them through some of the difficult challenges they face in life.” - Senator Bob Dole
"Captain Scotty Smiley was put to the ultimate test of faith and passed with flying colors, turning what was intened for evil into good.
