Baptist evangelical speaker Barrick had the perfect life. A Bible study leader, she was happily married and had two blessed children. Her son was a gifted athlete; her daughter, Jen, was a straight-A honor student, varsity soccer player and nationally ranked varsity cheerleader who loved God. But in 2006, tragedy struck when a drunk driver collided head-on with the car in which she and her family were riding. Her son escaped with bruises and scratches while Barrick and her husband suffered multiple fractures and severe lacerations. Jen was hurt worst of all and sustained life-threatening head injuries. Barrick and her husband struggled to come to terms with their now-shattered lives as Jen lay in a coma for over a month. Against all odds, she began to respond; even more amazingly, she started conversing with God in language that was perfectly intelligible. Like her mother and father, Jen recovered her health, but was even more profoundly changed by the accident than they were. Now brain-injured and nearly blind, she was only able to regain normal speech with great effort, although her ability to speak to God unimpaired continued to astound those around her. Barrick admits throughout to longing for a daughter who could be normal again. But through Jen, she came to understand that her human desires were secondary to Gods plan, which was to give her daughter her own special place in His world. The authors story is moving but will no doubt frustrate secular readers, as she remains silent about other neurologically based explanations for her daughters remarkable abilities and recovery.
Likely to appeal only to Christian readers.
mom3waysGreenfield, INAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Healing in God's timeFebruary 19, 2013mom3waysGreenfield, INAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I am so excited to share this review with my readers. The book, MIRACLE FOR JEN, was written by Jen's mother, Linda Barrick. Linda tells the story of how their family was involved in a tragic accident. Their minivan was hit head on by a drunk driver, wreaking havoc on everyone inside the van. Linda, her husband, daughter (Jen), and son were all injured. Her daughter Jen was the worst off. She was not expected to live through the night. But miraculously she did survive the night! And she is alive today telling her story all across the world. Their family are Christians with ties to Liberty University, and Linda talks about the thousands fo people praying for her daughter while she recovered from her traumatic brain injury.
The thing about brain injuries is that they take so long heal from. A lot of times the person may look perfectly normal, but their brain is not functioning properly. I believe that waiting to heal from an injury like this is the hardest part. While waiting for her daughter to heal, Linda talks about the raw emotions she was feeling at the time.
"Later that day....was the first time I could remember being by myself since the accident. Overcome with emotion, I shut the door to Jen's room and collapsed on the floor at the top of the stairs. I got on my face and confessed my thoughts to the Lord. I didn't know what else to do As I lay there, I didn't hear an audible voice in the room, but I heard GOd speaking to my heart.
Linda, do you love Me as much as you love Jen?
Lord, You know I do!
In that instant I realized that at the root of our greatest fear is often something we love more than God. I didn't want to love Jen more than I loved God. I didn't mean to do it, but my priorities said otherwise.
Then you have to stop being consumed with trying to fix Jen. I don't want you to be consumed with anything else but Me. I want to be your number one obsession.
Jen is mine. You have to let go and trust Me."
And that is what this book is all about. Letting go and trusting God's perfect plan. This book is a great reminder that His ways are not my ways and His plans are often not my plans.
I was given a copy of this book from Tyndale publishing as part of their Tyndale Blog Network. The opinions are mine.
Mom to the TribeLexington,KYAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5An inspiring read!February 13, 2013Mom to the TribeLexington,KYAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4The 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.

We also let our daughter order jewelry that Jen makes that is offered on her website.
