Beckie Horter is a Christian blogger and a devotions editor for Proverbs 31 Ministries.
After graduating with a degree in English, Beckie worked at the local newspaper as a correspondent and proofreader until central vision loss forced her to resign and quit driving.
Her condition is called Degenerative Myopia. It is similar to Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) in that the central vision is affected while the peripheral vision remains intact. It is not age-related; however, it is related to the shape of the eyeball. Degenerative myopia is more severe than other forms of myopia and is associated with retina changes, potentially causing severe vision loss.
Following a period of adjustment, Beckie returned to writing and editing. She now writes for national magazines using adaptive equipment to enlarge text.
