1 The Miracle Man

The Miracle Man

Melissa | Religious


Do you need a miracle? Well, you’ve come to the right place! These are true stories of lives transformed by the miraculous power of the Living God! I hope you will imagine yourself in their shoes, and experience the great love of Jesus, the Miracle Man. We’re not going to just fill our heads with information ABOUT Jesus. We are going to plop ourselves right down in the middle of each story. Imagine ourselves there. As if what is happening, is happening to us. As if what Jesus is saying, he is saying to us. What each person was thinking and feeling, and how each one connected with Jesus. Let’s dive in, sink deep, and soak ourselves in these accounts of Jesus reaching out to ordinary people, not so different from you and me. We will get to know Jesus, and receive, I pray, a miracle!

This is a true story about children hurt by their own parents.

It's the story of a flawed justice system that, for all its errors, all its faults, in this case, did what we hope it will. It's about what the words - family, love and responsibility - really mean, and, most of all, it's an example for those of us who care about kids enough to do more than talk about it.
