Help From Heaven

 We all experience times when we need help. We pick up the phone and call 911 for assistance.  Each chapter of this book demonstrates the difficult jobs EMS, emergency workers, etc. deal with each and every day.  The patients are at their worse.  The emergency workers are Angels of GOD whom do everything in their power to save us or our loved ones.

This Book was beautifully written.  It takes a special person to do a job like this.  I know the author's Christian beliefs have given her the strength to carry out her job.  And to think that she is volunteering to help others!  

Chapter 16 spoke to me.  My father was in the hospital dying from cancer.  I was a wife with two young children under six. I was also attending college full-time near the hospital my father was in.  I planned to visit my Dad right after my class ended.  I was waiting for the class to start when I had this desperate need to get to the hospital.  I didn't have my car that day so I had no way to get there.  My friend drove me and dropped me off.  I soon found out that my Dad died right when I felt the need to go.  I believe that GOD spoke to me that day.  And I was blessed that I listened.  There was no way anyone could have reached me in that classroom.  But GOD could.

I received this free from Celebrate Lit to review.

Do You Believe in Miracles?

Experience the heart-pounding drama of real-life emergencies. Veteran EMT and physical therapist Andrea Jo Rodgers shares this all-new collection of accounts from her 30-plus years as a volunteer with her town’s local first aid and emergency squad.

Arrive on the scene with Andrea and encounter…

  • Lou, a dedicated war veteran who is granted a new tour of duty from God.
  • A fearful flock of ducklings that slip down a storm drain during a false alarm.
  • Everett, a resilient older man who goes for an unexpected ride on the hood of an intoxicated driver’s car.
  • Jenna, a young woman whose dangerous heart condition is both physical and emotional.
  • Frank, a husband whose nasty fall down a flight of stairs earns him instant angel status from his devoted wife, Doris.

As you discover these and many more unforgettable stories, you’ll be reminded that miracles do happen, whether it be through the heroic efforts of first responders, the Lord’s divine intervention, or, often, both.
