Product Description

* Facing a devastating brain injury from a car crash, 15-year-old Jen was not expected to survive. Doctors warned her parents that if she regained consciousness, she'd be screaming in confusion. But instead---though she didn't recognize her family---she did remember every Scripture and praise song she'd hidden in her heart. An awe-inspiring testimony! Includes updates. 288 pages, softcover from Tyndale.

Publisher's Description

One minute can change your whole life. The Barrick family’s life was irrevocably changed when a drunk driver careened into their van at eighty miles an hour. The entire family was hurt—but fifteen-year-old Jennifer’s injuries were so devastating that paramedics thought she had no chance to live. As Jen lay in a coma, her mother, Linda, pleaded with God to heal Jen from her severe brain trauma—to let her daughter be “normal.” When Jen finally awoke, however, it became clear that normal would have to be redefined. She seemed to have gained a new capacity—perhaps a miraculous one—for connecting with God.

Was this the miracle Linda had prayed for? If so, was it enough? Could she trust God with Jen’s future in the wake of the accident? Could she trust in His love for them all? Discover how God turned normal into extraordinary in this transformational story of hope and love. Now includes bonus chapter with updates on the Barrick family and amazing new stories about Miracle for Jen’s impact in the world!

    I 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.

    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.

    I got this book for my daughter for Christmas. We had heard the testimony already of this family. She has already read the book and given it to a friend to borrow. Her friend said it has brought her closer to God in reading this story.

    This book was so inspirational that I bought several copies for all the teen girls in my daughter's Bible study group. I ordered a few extra, and have shared them with people looking for inspiration. Jen is living proof of God's ability to perform miracles in ways we don't expect. We also let our daughter order jewelry that Jen makes that is offered on her website.
