mircacles from heavenAbout:

In a remarkable true story of faith and blessings, a mother tells of her sickly young daughter, how she survived a dangerous accident, her visit to Heaven and the inexplicable disappearance of the symptoms of her chronic disease.

Annabel Beam spent most of her childhood in and out of hospitals with a rare and incurable digestive disorder that prevented her from ever living a normal, healthy life. One sunny day when she was able to go outside and play with her sisters, she fell three stories headfirst inside an old, hollowed-out tree, a fall that may well have caused death or paralysis. Implausibly, she survived without a scratch. While unconscious inside the tree, with rescue workers struggling to get to her, she visited heaven. After being released from the hospital, she defied science and was inexplicably cured of her chronic ailment.

MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN will change how we look at the world around us and reinforce our belief in God and the afterlife.

My thoughts:

You might be thinking the same thing I did when I first saw this book, “Another I-went-to-Heaven book?” Yep, I thought that and almost passed on the opportunity to review it.

I’m so glad I didn’t.

Although, yes, Christy’s daughter did go to Heaven the focus on the book isn’t on that. Only a tiny bit is mentioned. The focus is more on the blessings and God’s goodness.

Something about this book drew me to it day after day. I couldn’t wait to read it and see what happened. It is truly an amazing story of healing. A Genesis 5020!!

This fall could have killed Anna but instead God healed her and now she is sharing that hope with others.

I actually enjoyed reading this even more than Heaven is for Real. The narrative is beautiful and I loved Christy’s writing voice.

There were times I was brought to tears as I read. I worry so much about my kids but we have never had to deal with a sickness like Anna has had to deal with.

Overall, I was just amazed how God used this little girl falling into a tree for bring Himself glory. Isn’t He over-the-top? Wow.

If you’re looking for a good non-fiction book this is a great one I highly recommend.
