Miracle for Jen: A Tragic Accident, a Mother's Desperate Prayer, and Heaven's Extraordinary Answer By: Linda Barrick
Miracle for Jen, tells the story of the car accident the Barrick family experienced and how in a moment's time life can take a huge change. Linda Barrick, tells the story of how an accident totally transformed her family's life. She testifies to the goodness of God throughout the entire incident and how God is continuing to work in, among and through her family, especially, daughter Jen. After 5 weeks in a coma, Jen emerged from her coma to not recognize anyone and to hardly be able to talk...in the natural. The most amazing part of this time was that when Jen was praising and praying or speaking to Jesus, it was as if nothing had ever happened to her...she was totally restored in her conversations with the Lord. In fact, upon awakening from her coma, Jen was speaking directly to the Lord in absolute clearly communicated words. The story of the journey that Jen was on and continues on to this day, will strengthen any reader's belief that in Christ we can do all things.
The middle section of the book contains photos of Jen and her family during the recovery from the accident. While looking at this section, I became even more drawn to the story (I always check out photo lay-outs in a book before I begin reading) because I recognized, Linda Barrick's father (Jen's grandfather) Ed Hindson because several years ago (almost 10 years ago) I sat under some of Ed Hindson's teachings in a former church, which of course formed a 'connection' with this family's story. Whether there was a connection because of knowing any of this family or not, this is a powerful story.
