One night I was laying in bed in a half awake-half asleep state, when this image appeared in my mind. I remember asking God what this image of light was in my dream when all of a sudden pictures of people’s faces began flashing in my eyes and flying past my face. The reply I heard in my spirit came immediately before I got the last word out.  “You are not to write in this book.
I don’t know about you, but as an organized person I know what happens to me when a ‘monkey wrench’ gets thrown into my plans. I decided to put up a page for the book submissions on my website so people could submit their stories.  I dragged my feet on promoting that link to anyone, however, until one day I put it up on Facebook and told people what it was about. Questions raced through my mind like, “How in the world would I have time to read all these stories!?”  “How will I know which ones to publish and which one’s to set aside?” “How would I tell those who’s didn’t get selected that they didn’t get selected?”  No answers came. WOW!  It didn’t take long before I realized that in my previous questions to God there was a little bit of “I” trouble.
There are things being established for you without you knowing it because if you did know it you’d make it all about you too! Soon after, a team of reviewers came along.  Then an editor, a graphic artist, an assistant, a team of brain stormers, someone who wanted to write the forward for the book, someone to convert the book to Kindle format, on and on came the people I needed right when I needed them!
If you believe there is a God who loves us, or even if you don’t believe there is a God who loves us but you want to be inspired, you will want to read these powerful stories.  You simply cannot imagine what the human body can go through and how God can intervene on our behalf in spite of the decisions we often make that are not in our best interest.

A nine-year-old girl falls 30 feet, lands headfirst, sustains only minor scrapes and bruises, and leaves the hospital the next day.
The film (and book) “Miracles from Heaven” relates Anna Beam’s fascinating story of childlike faith amid agonizing challenges. Angela (Queen Latifah) braids Anna’s (Kylie Rogers) hair as Christy (Jennifer Garner) watches.
Two fire rescue crews work for several hours seeking response from Anna, improvising a rope harness, and extracting her from the tree. Christy’s phone notes from the day after the fall have Anna saying Jesus told her, “I have plans for you to complete on Earth that you cannot complete in Heaven. Today the base of the cottonwood tree still stands, but with a significant addition: a large cross Kevin carved into its trunk, “a symbol of both suffering and salvation,” notes Christy. Original music of Charles Sines, worship leader at Azusa Street during the 1906-1909 Los Angeles revival.
Gideon said to Him, “O my lord, if the Lord is with us, why then has all this happened to us? At the turn of the 20th Century, William Seymour, a one-eyed pastor and son of slaves from the American South, started an unprecedented move of God, the greatest since biblical times. Over fifty years later, a 17 year old boy, on the run from the law and an abusive past in Oklahoma, would meet up with an elderly lady who had been part of this revival. A rebellious teen, Tommy dropped out of school and eventually pursued a life of crime until he met Sister Goldie in Venice Beach, CA when he was 17 and on the run from the law. Michelle graduated from Loyola Marymount University with her undergraduate degree in Communications and continued her film education at USC and UCLA.
Growing up as a follower of Jesus, Michelle had never experienced the gospel with power until she joined a Spirit-filled church in 2009 and read Tommy Welchela€™s first book on the Azusa Street Revival.
Michelle’s other writing credits outside of Iron Image Media include freelance journalism. Michelle lives in Ventura County with her husband of many years, Marc, and their three children, whom they consider their most prized projects.
By the time I was seventeen, I had been living on the streets for fourteen months and was a criminal wanted by the police for burglary. An old friend of mine, Glen, came by and said, "Tommy, the police know who's been breaking into all those houses. Teddy and his grandma were from Venice Beach, and they wanted to go back to California a€?cause things were tough in Oklahoma.
I didn't really want to go to California and leave Oklahoma, but Glen reminded me that it was either go to California or go to jail.
Well, I'm sitting there with this long face, feeling sorry for myself, not knowing where to go or what to do when I saw these two old ladies walking down the boardwalk. These two ladies came over and sat down, one on each side of me, and started talking to me.

I said the prayer for these ladies because it was time to eat, and all 6a€™2a€? of me was hungry. Little did Tommy know that Sister Goldie, among others he was about to meet, had been at the Azusa Street Revival. Every month for that span of six years, Tommy would alternate visiting them and sit at their feet as a sign of respect. I wasn't but 17 when I first started sitting and listening to these old Azusa Street saints. I had no idea how many people were wanting these saints to tell them their stories a€“ Demo Shakarian, Tommy Hicks, David du Plessis a€“ but, they wouldna€™t tell them.
I kept the stories right here in my head where they had been for over forty years, until the Lord released me, and it was time to talk.
Scribe Randy Brown’s adaptation is based on the memoir of Texas mother-of-three Christy Beam (played by Jennifer Garner), whose daughter Annabel (Kylie Rogers) developed chronic stomach problems as a preteen, was ultimately diagnosed with an intestinal motility disorder and nearly died. Christy’s fierce commitment to Annabel becomes the film’s backbone, and it’s a credit that the bulk of the running time is spent grappling with Annabel’s illness and the hopelessness that overtakes both mother and daughter. In a welcome gender reversal from the father-son dynamic of “Heaven Is for Real,” Garner and Rogers deliver fully committed performances that credibly convey the physical and mental anguish endured by sick children and their caregivers.
But eventually “Miracles From Heaven” gets around to its big miracle: Annabel’s spontaneous remission, a development with no medical explanation, after she suffers a terrifying fall into the center of a hollow cottonwood (convincingly reproduced by production designer David R. The whole ordeal is wrapped up in a bow when kindly Pastor Scott (an underused John Carroll Lynch) invites Christy to speak during church, where she delivers a quote dubiously attributed to Einstein (“There are only two ways to live your life.
In a move to underline the story’s bona fides, the pic closes with footage of the actual Beam family happily at home. Jennifer Garner, Kylie Rogers, Martin Henderson, John Carroll Lynch, Eugenio Derbez, Queen Latifah, Brighton Sharbino, Courtney Fansler, Wayne Pere, Bruce Altman, Kelly Collins Lintz, Hannah Alligood.
This critic is extremely bias and it shows, if you can’t deliver an unbiased report then it’s time to find another line of work!! After reading this review, I find myself surprised not at all by the critics loathing of anything related to decency and his condescending attitude toward people of faith.
I understand being a critic but it feels that this reporter is giving us his feeling on religion.
Saw this movie last night and it was the most awesome inspiring movie I’ve seen in a long time in a world full of so much negativity I can only have good thoughts on this movie.
It was of a cloudy sky with a very bright white light, shining through the night against a dark sky. Pictures of people I knew, relatives and friends, and then pictures of people I didn’t know, but who appeared to be from all over the world.  I didn’t understand why I was seeing these faces or what it meant. If I’m being totally transparent I’d even go so far as to say I don’t like to write because I’m not great with grammar. On a plane from Hawaii to Michigan I wrote the entire book in fourteen hours.  Surely this would happen in the same manner – right? I was glad but figured it was going to take many more stories as I had seen about 101 different faces.  A few weeks later I had 15 more stories, a few more weeks and I had 30 more stories.
More every day people who’ve experienced God in ways others only dream about but need to be reminded is very, very, real. You’ve endured endless medical visits, hospital stays, poking, needles, tubes, electrodes, blood draws and pain.
You’ve got “pseudo-obstruction motility disorder” (a rare intestinal malady) and “antral hypomotility disorder” (a stomach paralysis).
The hospital ER doctor is amazed Anna has no broken bones; similar falls often bring paralysis, brain injury or death. She and her husband, Kevin, listen intently, careful not to introduce ideas or ask prodding questions, lest Anna feel pressured to embellish her story.
It’s time for you to go back, and the firemen are going to get you out of the tree and when they do, you will be totally fine. Anna first related parts of her heavenly experience the day after her fall, then a week later on local television, then again some months later to Christy.
He holds Bachelor of Science (psychology) and Master of Theology degrees from Duke and Oxford universities, respectively. It was called The Azusa Street Revival because it took place in a rundown warehouse on Azusa Street in downtown Los Angeles from 1906 - 1909. She would change his life forever, exposing him to the God he never knew and to the power of God he could never forget.
His alcoholic father was violently abusive and in and out of prison due to drunkenness and illegal activities.

He had an Uncle Ed in Bakersfield, but he didna€™t have any idea where Bakersfield was or how to reach him. If there are miracles everywhere we look, who wants to waste time on a movie this middling? With that in mind, it’s almost surprising that “Miracles From Heaven” takes any risks at all. While Christy’s veterinarian husband Kevin (Martin Henderson) and their other two daughters — the eldest, Abbie (Brighton Sharbino), and the precocious youngest, Adelynn (Courtney Fansler) — did what they could to support Annabel, it’s Christy who labors endlessly to find a way to save her daughter’s life.
This is standard disease-of-the-week telepic stuff (and Riggen’s blandly antiseptic visual approach can hardly be dubbed cinematic), but rendered with enough detail to practically qualify as a horror movie for parents.
Seeing their smiling faces after everything we’ve witnessed may not prove the existence of miracles, but it’s sure to galvanize true believers to spread the word and boost the bottom line.
In addition to being grateful that this little girl was miraculously healed, this movie helps us see that we need to trust the instincts that Christ gives us.
Simply put: he reminds me of the character who lost his daughter to cancer while talking to the mother in the hall of the hospital. It was someone else who has said that his own (different) story, about dying and coming back, wasn’t actually true. I remember all too well those big red ink C-’s I use to get in high school on every essay I ever tried to write.  I definitely wasn’t interested in writing another book! Anna and her older sister, Abbie, climb a tall cottonwood tree at the family farm in Texas.
Psychological explanations propose defense mechanisms, wish fulfillment, misinterpretation.
There were those present that God would use to perform miracles of healing that the world had never before seen. Because of his time spent with her and others who were a part of the revival, God would use him to trigger the next great outpouring of the Spirit of the 21st century.
His mother was completely illiterate, but she knew Tommy was going to be in the ministry one day because, a€?a€¦God had told her soa€¦a€? when she became Spirit-filled. Not that faith-based audiences will object to the unapologetic manipulations in such an innocuous slice of inspirational hokum, especially when it’s served up with the utmost sincerity. From a blunt acknowledgement of the holier-than-thou attitudes of certain churchgoers, to a sustained focus on a woman’s crisis of faith throughout her child’s life-threatening battle with a rare illness, the film isn’t all homilies and hallelujahs. Even if it means temporarily relocating to Boston and crashing the office of sought-after specialist Dr.
Nurko that there is no cure pushes the family to the brink and causes Christy to back away from her formerly unshakeable faith.
As Annabel’s crippling pain takes its own toll on Christy, the film raises inevitable questions about God’s plans and what happens when a child loses her will to live. The disappearance of her disease shocks everyone, but it’s Annabel’s gentle insistence that she took an out-of-body trip to heaven (depicted via visual effects somewhere between Peter Jackson’s garish “The Lovely Bones” and a Monet painting that captivates Annabel in a Boston museum) when she was unconscious that firmly reconnects Christy with her Christianity.
The other is as though everything is a miracle”) and a nonbelieving journalist (Wayne Pere), whose own daughter shared a hospital room with Annabel, springs to Christy’s defense after an outburst from a skeptical parishioner. We need to be prayerful about being open to assist others when led, so God can do miracles in the lives of others. Some time I don’t follow what he want because of the evil earth we live on but praying to him makes my life a whole lot better. Particularly one that others from all around the world were suppose to write because I’ve heard so many stories of how tough it is to do a collaborative work on that level.  Besides, I was quite certain Chicken Soup for The Soul Series had already done it! Even right now, at this very moment, though you are unaware, healing, joy, wealth, knowledge, all these things and more are being added unto you. The parents’ strategy of “availability to listen” rather than “nudging to talk” aimed to minimize embellishment.
Instead the frequently fickle crowd should turn out in droves for a pic that’s a spiritual successor in every way to 2014’s sleeper hit “Heaven Is for Real.” This similarly “based on a true story” tale of a child who claims to have visited heaven and lived to share the good news looks perfectly poised for a blessed run at the box office during the same Easter-season window. It would be enough to make auds choke on sentimentality, if only that weren’t the reason they bought a ticket in the first place. When the branch they are on begins to crack, Anna tries to reposition herself temporarily in the cavity, but plummets headfirst to the bottom, landing in a crumpled heap.
