Bible ConnectionJeremiah 29:11 says "I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper, not to harm you. Plans to give you hope, and a future." Helen may have thought that her issues had no reason, but God had the perfect plan for her that played out as she grew up.

The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.-Helen Keller


"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart."-Helen Keller

I feel a connection to Anne Sullivan because I am a person that a lot of people come to when they are having problems in their lives, and sometimes I don't know exactly what to do. Anne Sullivan had this problem with Helen Keller, but she overcame it.
