A Book Review: Miracle For Jen
The story of an seemingly perfect family of four living life, loving Jesus...until an evening drive home from a school choir concert changed everything. The Barrick Family was hit by a drunk driver and the results were devastating. The entire family sustained injuries...and nearly claimed the life of their daughter, Jen.
The book follows the journey of this family as they struggle to heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Mrs. Barrick shares of the difficulties of the recovery and forgiveness with great honesty. It was inspiring to read of how the body of Christ came together to support this family during their months of recovery. Their family and friends kept vigil at Jen's bedside when her parent's were unable to be with her. This family was surrounded in prayer, provided with meals, encouraged, and care for. An amazing testimony of how God uses His people to share His great love.
Although Jen's life is forever changed as a result of a traumatic brain injury...her relationship with Jesus only grows deeper. God has written a miraculous story of healing in her life - and she is eager to share it.
This book was a quick-read and very inspiring. I would recommend this book to my friends.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
