MY BOOK REPORT
Fifteen-year-old Jen was on her way home from church with her family one night when the peacefulness was shattered with….BAM! Miracle for Jen is the miraculous, true story of a family’s faith and healing through a tragic accident. The Barrick family was only a mile from their house when a drunk driver hit their car head-on going 80 miles an hour. The Barrick family suffered many injuries (including a dislocated eye socket, and broken pelvis), however, miraculously all four members of the family survived. While most of the injuries were severe, Jen’s were the worst–in fact, so bad, that the paramedics said she had no chance to live. As her daughter lay in a coma or 5 weeks, Jens mother sent desperate prayers and pleas up to Heaven desperately begging God to allow her to daughter to awake from her coma and return to a normal life. After many days and weeks of desperate pleas, her prayer was finally answered–but not exactly how she had planned. Because of her traumatic brain damage, Jen lost all memory (except her faith in and love for God) and had to learn to walk and gain control of her body again. Miracle for Jen is Linda Barrick’s telling of this tragic accident, her desperate prayer, and “Heaven’s extraordinary answer”.
The Barrick family’s story was amazing! I couldn’t believe how all four of them could be in such a horrific accident and yet all survive. Well, I take that back–i can believe it because I believe in an all-powerful God. However, it doesn’t take back how amazing their miraculous story is. It proves how powerful our God is.
