Praise GOD: Miracles Experienced by a Grateful Family

I wrote Praise GOD as a legacy concentrating on the many miracles in my life and the lives of my family members.  I see my family as larger than my immediate family, to include all my loved family members, regardless of their origin.

My purpose is to leave a colorful, meaningful legacy so the descendants of today’s family members are enchanted in reading of their parents and grandparents having miraculous adventures with their parents, grandparents and great-grandparents.  Other readers include all those attracted to real-life miracle stories.

Another purpose is to give them an attention-getting book that draws them in to read the stories and consider the place of God in their lives.  I want all readers to find encouragement for their heart and their faith.

I pray they perceive God’s love for all His children, regardless of who they are or of their difficulties in life.  Most of all, I want them to come away with a strong sense that God is in control, God is good and God loves them.

With stories ranging from a life saved during the Afghan War, to less dramatic miracles like finding love again, Praise GOD will leave readers encouraged and believing.
