Book Review and Giveaway: Miracle for Jen


I just read a wonderful, inspiring book-Miracle for Jen by Linda Barrick with John Perry, which I received from Tyndale House Publishers.  This is a true story about a family hit by a drunk driver, and their 15 year-old daughter's struggle to survive.  The Barrick family was strongly grounded in their faith, and they had to learn to accept God's new plan for their life.  Jen, even when barely conscious and unable to recognize her family, would praise God for hours from a semi-comatose state.  When not praying and singing to God, she would be drooling and unable to form words!  Her praise to God was clear  and loud! 





Reading about the Barrick family and their faith and strength during such a horrible time in their lives was definitely inspiring. They prayed for a miracle, but God didn't always answer their prayers the way they expected.  You won't be able to put Miracle for Jen down!!
