Book Review: "Miracle for Jen" by Linda Barrick
This week, I read "Miracle for Jen," a true story by Linda Barrick. This is a fantastic, inspiring book!
Linda writes about the tragic car accident that nearly claimed the lives of their entire family. Miraculously, God spared all of their lives that night - but led them down a long and difficult road. Their experience on this road created an inspiring testimony that they now share with millions of people through public speaking, the Internet, and now this book.
Linda's daughter Jen (age 15 at the time of the accident) suffered an extensive and traumatic brain injury. Doctors gave the family almost no hope for her survival, but God was with Jen during her long road to recovery. While she is not completely back to "normal" (and never will be), the Barrick family (especially Jen!) is okay with this - and even embraces it. Their entire story is extremely inspiring and provides a wonderful testimony of God's amazing healing power.
