BOOK REVIEW

A TREASURY OF MIRACLES FOR TEENS: TRUE STORIES OF GOD'S PRESENCE TODAY - KAREN KINGSBURY

This book is a collection of true stories to remind teens that God is involved in their lives. 

One story in the book "Save a Place for Me" is about Julie and her brother, Jared, who had cystic fibrosis.  Her parents lived a life separate from faith and with their son's illness, they seemed to think it confirmed their non-belief because God was not helping Jared.

Jared became very sick and had to be placed in the hospital.  The doctors did not think he would live.  Julie's parents went to the cafeteria but Julie remained in the room with Jared.  While her parents were at the cafeteria, Julie kept praying to God for Jared to live.  Julie heard someone enter the room.  It was a man dressed in janitorial clothing with a mop and bucket of water.  There was something about him - his smile was gentle and his voice soft.  He said he had something to tell her - a message from God.  He told Julie her brother was going to live.  As Julie had many other questions flash through her mind, she ran out in the hallway to find the janitor.  He was not in sight.  She checked at the nurses' station to find the man.  They said it could not be one of the janitors because they all left three hours ago!

The doctor then came to tell Julie that a miracle had happened.  Ten minutes ago it looked like Jared was not going to make it and now his lungs were much better.  Was this an angel who visited Julie?

There are several more true stories such as this one in the book.  Just about everyone believes in miracles and after reading this book it confirms many of our beliefs.  This book is a great inspiration to those of us who are believers!  The book is very well written and shows that prayers are answered.  It is wonderful that Karen Kingsbury has compiled these stories for all of us to enjoy.  Everyone of all ages will enjoy this book!
