A Miracle for Jen by Linda Barrick
This book will utterly change your life and your perceptions of God. This is the story of a girl who was severely brain injured in a tragic car accident and against all odds, lived to tell about it. No one, especially the neurosurgeons expected her to live, but she held on. When she emerged from her coma she couldn’t talk clearly or do most simple tasks for herself. She had no short term memory. But she spent hours praying and singing and praising the Lord in a clear, normal voice. She was a miracle in many ways. The doctors had warned her parents that brain injured people usually wake up shouting obscenities that no one even knew they knew (even Christians), but not Jen! She woke up praising God and never stopped.
Jen’s healing is not complete even at the writing of this book, five years after her accident, but her recovery has been miraculous and the number of people she has reached with the message of the gospel of Christ is miraculous as well.
I challenge you to read this book. You will never think to ask God, “Why Me?” again. I cannot emphasize enough how life-changing this book is. My Christian walk will never be the same again and I believe everyone who reads this book will be profoundly changed by it.
