Dove Review

Sue Thomas was diagnosed as profoundly deaf at the age of 18 months. She tells her story for the glory of God and, secondly, for the hope it gives people. She was her mother’s only daughter and although she has no recollection of music—only the rhythm and the flow of songs—she is able to sing “Silent Night” that her mother taught her. She used it as a form of comfort; it was her sense of peace.

Her dad signed her up for skating lessons; she was so good they suggested she be put in competition. The only problem was that when the music was done the routine had to be done. Her coach skated hand in hand with her to learn the routine. She was only 7. Sue coveted friends and by high school she found friends, but the wrong kind.

Her career began when she entered the FBI, reading lips when sound failed on surveillance tapes. She had a good job and good pay, but soon realized there is more to life. She prayed to God and He led her to seminary. The bitterness and hatred she had developed were all brought to Jesus and this changed her life. Her story will bring you smiles, laughs and tears. She introduces her traveling companion of seven years who is sick and dying, another event that transformed her life.

We are proud to award this DVD with the Dove “Faith-Friendly” Seal for all ages.
