Book Details

Genre: Gospel Teachings

Jesus is a worker of miracles.

In speaking personally to Eric Huntsman about this book he told me he wrote it to help people realize that while the Lord might not give them the miracles they are specifically hoping for He is still giving them miracles.

As you read of Christ's miracles you might see a parallel to the miracle you are praying for.

"Restoring a paralytic's ability to walk or a man's ability to use a previously withered hand can represent the strengthening and enabling power of the Atonement as well as anticipating the full healing of the resurrection.

Cleansing a leper symbolizes the redeeming power of Jesus' sacrifice that can purify our heart and souls. 

Returning the ability to see and hear symbolizes the deeper meaning of opening our spiritual eyes to see things as they are and opening our ears to hear the word of the Lord."

Healing of the sick is probably the most commonly acknowledged miracle today...

But have you ever thought about the miracle of casting out devils? Is there an addiction you are trying to cast out? Have you prayed for a miracle?

 Of course the greatest miracle is the Atonement...how blessed we are to have access to the Lord's Atonement. Do we fully utilize it in our lives?

This book is BEAUTIFULLY illustrated...Bringing the miracles of Jesus alive in our hearts.

Reminding us of His love.

And showing us the way to savor the miracles that do come to us and our loves ones.

This book is POWERFUL!
Be sure to read of the author's miracle involving his autistic son...very touching!
