Miracles: 32 True Stories by Joanie HilemanFor some time now, my reading matter has mainly consisted of thrillers, espionage, violence, and all manner of murder and mayhem, so what a refreshing change this book was. I dont believe that every story in here could be construed as a miracle, but each and every one of them IS uplifting. Some stand out more than others, and for me the one featuring baby Wyatt was both inspiring and heartbreaking. One can only look on in awe at how these people deal with such terrible adversity. The book could have used some editing but nevertheless was well worth reading. Just make sure you have the tissues to hand!

For them, the age of miracles belongs to the early church, when awe-inspiring events—like Moses parting the red sea, the virgin birth, and Jesus rising from the dead—confirmed the authenticity and divine nature of God and Jesus. From second chances at life to scientifically unexplained mysteries, these real-life stories are powerful reminders that God is at work in modern times, and that we must never give up hope and faith. Fourteen hours later, first responders found her month-old daughter, Lily, in her car seat hanging upside down just above frigid river water. Prior to finding Lily, both police officers and firefighters report that they heard an adult voice yell "Help me! They discovered that the voice could not have come from the young mother, who likely died from the impact.
She managed to survive the horrifying ordeal saying God's supernatural power gave her superhuman strength to break free from a watery grave. It's a common problem in the media. Such is the case with Morgan Lake whose car plunged 40 feet off Maryland's Chesapeake Bay Bridge into the water below. Incredibly, Morgan managed to survive the horrifying ordeal. Many news outlets have reported her dramatic escape from death after her car but her mother explained to me, when I met both of them Tuesday, that some of those stations and networks deleted Morgan's words of gratitude to God. During my interview with Morgan, she emphasized that she wanted the whole story told.
