Eva Whittington Self

Eva was born and raised in Concord, NC – the first girl born in her family in over 100 years. Her ordinary life became extraordinary when, at the age of 17, she was involved in an automobile accident that left her paralyzed from the waist down and permanently confined to a wheelchair.

Through a series of miraculous events, she became the first person in her family to attend college and then graduated from Gardner-Webb in 1984 with a degree in music education. She then worked for a number of years as an area representative for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Her story is a powerful testimony of God's grace and provision. Eva's unique "storytelling" style blends personal anecdotes, Biblical truths, and humor. She is a nationally sought after speaker having appeared twice on Focus on the Family's radio broadcast, and also having been a featured speaker for women's conferences for Focus on the Family, Moody Bible Institute and others.

Her biography, May Bell's Daughter, was published by Thomas Nelson Publishing in 1999. Eva also has recorded a collection of Christian music entitled, "The Old Violin."

Eva is active in her local church where she has led a variety of Bible Studies for women, youth and Sunday School. She and her husband, Andrew Self, a circuit judge in Kentucky, are the parents of Abby and Audrey. The Selfs reside in Hopkinsville, KY.
