Publisher's Description

Miracle on Hope Hill is a collection of true, inspiring stories that show God’s love and affirmation intervening in the lives of ordinary people. It includes stories of romance, heartache, tragedy, and celebration, but all with the common thread of "God moments" that show his love, intervention, and blessing. 

Every now and then such moments are so spectacular that we can’t miss them.  But far more often we miss them altogether, perhaps calling our experience a stroke of good luck or taking credit for the unexpected blessing as simply “our due.” However, when we truly consider these events, we discover how ever-present God is and we begin to recognize ways in which God is affirming, leading, and demonstrating his love for us.

At times his touch is one of comfort when we are hurting. It may come quietly, unexpectedly, or from the hand of someone he has moved to meet our need. Other times we may be so consumed with despair that we assume God has abandoned us. But he has not. His love is shown to us in subtle ways that we sometimes miss because we are so caught up in the complexity or misery of our circumstances.

Carol and Jennie have both contributed over the years to successful collections of stories published by Honor, Zondervan, NavPress, and others. For the first time they are collaborating, two sisters telling stories that uplift, encourage, and inspire.

Each of the forty stories is between 1000 and 1200 words in length and ends with a verse of scripture.

Author Bio

Carol Kent is an international public speaker and the bestselling author of When I Lay My Isaac Down and A New Kind of Normal. She is hilariously funny, biblically sound, and heartbreakingly transparent in person and in print. Founder and president of Speak Up for Hope (a prison ministry), Speak Up With Confidence (a communications training seminar), and Speak Up Speaker Services (a speakers bureau), Carol is an expert on public speaking, writing, and on encouraging people to hold on to hope when life’s circumstances turn out differently from their dreams. She sits on the advisory boards of MOPS International and the Advanced Writers and Speakers Association. She travels the world, speaking to thousands each year. Carol has spoken on the Women of Faith tour and for events such as Extraordinary Women, THRIVE, and Women of Joy. And when they’re back home in Florida, Carol and her husband, Gene, enjoy walking in the rain, summer sunsets, trail biking, and the new adventure of river kayaking. Jennie Afman Dimkoff  is a motivational speaker, trainer, and author, speaking widely throughout the US and Canada, as well as in both South Korea and Germany. President of Storyline Ministries, Inc. and author and storyteller for Kids' Time, a children's audio story ministry on CDs, Jennie also serves on the staff of Speak Up With Confidence Seminars teaching each year. Jennie has a BA degree in Business, with a minor in speech and drama. She has been featured repeatedly on 100 Huntley Street in Canada, The Harvest Show, and TCT television programs. Her books and storytelling have been twice featured as 5-day programming for Moody Broadcasting Network. Married to her best friend, Probate Court Judge Graydon W. Dimkoff, she is mom to their two grown children, Amber and Josh.

Miracle on Hope Hill is an inspiring book with compilations of true stories from Carol Kent and Jennie Afman Dimkoff. Through the eyes of many people, the authors inspire readers with the reality of God’s love through these heart-warming tales. Each story, only a few pages long, has a new lesson or an encouraging thought that will stick with readers all day.

The narratives are told in a casual, friendly way and readers can’t help but feel drawn in. Kent and Dimkoff tell of many events from their own experiences, whereas others are repeated secondhand from friends. Each author, growing up as a pastor’s daughter, gives special insight into stories about God’s generous and diverse love.

These interesting narratives surprise and empower readers, such as the story about answered prayer when a house was sold through a random meeting of a stranger who was in search of a home. Dimkoff’s daughter received miraculous healing in her legs when she was young. A friend needed to find a dress for a wedding she was going to attend. She specifically told God what she had in mind, and she found a dress exactly as she described. Not a page goes by without the reader’s heart feeling a little lighter.

Overall, Miracle on Hope Hill is well-written and provides enjoyable reading sessions with the authors. Kent and Dimkoff are masters at storytelling. By the end of each chapter, readers feel like they know the people in each vignette. I highly recommend this book. Women will especially find the anecdotes inspiring. – Molly Anderson, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
