Eyeway Conversations with Jim Stovall

Our guest in this episode of Eyeway Conversations is Jim Stovall, a celebrated author, humanitarian, national champion Olympic weightlifter, entrepreneur, and a highly sought-after platform speaker.

In conversation with George Abraham, Jim shares his inspiring journey. Born in Oklahoma, United States, Jim grew up to be a professional football player until he was diagnosed with macular degeneration, an eye disease that most often attacks the elderly, at the young age of seventeen. By the age of twenty-nine, he had turned completely blind. What may have seemed like an end to one’s dream, Jim took the challenge in his stride and accomplished many dreams.

Jim is the author of the best-selling book, The Ultimate Gift, which is a major motion picture starring James Garner and Abigail Breslin. He is also the author of The Ultimate Life and The Ultimate Journey, which have inspired other major motion pictures.

Jim advocates on behalf of people with blindness. He works to make television and movies accessible to the blind as President of the Narrative Television Network, an organization that has received various award recognitions including an Emmy award, a Media Access Award, and an International Film and Video Award.
Jim was selected as the 2000 International Humanitarian of the Year, joining Jimmy Carter, Nancy Reagan, and Mother Teresa as recipients of this honor.
