John Bunyan, the author of Pilgrim's Progress, mentions only one of his six children in his memoirs: Mary. Born blind in 17th-century England, she held a special place in her father's heart.

When Mr. Bunyan is arrested for unlawful preaching, young Mary travels the streets of Bedford each day, bringing soup to the prison. She resolves to prove she is independent and not hindered by her blindness. Only when she realizes she needs help does she turn to the Lord, the source of all strength.
