After losing her sight at the age of 15, Jennifer Rothschild's life changed drastically as blindess exacerbated her feelings of insecurity and insignificance, and weakened her sense of identity. In her new book Invisible: How You Feel is Not Who You Are (Harvest House, 2015), Rothschild encourages women to find their self-worth in Christ and shares practical ministry tools that helped her turn to God and prayer for direction in her life.
