Book review: Not just for teens!
A Treasury of Miracles for Teens – True Stories of God’s Presence Today, by Karen Kingsbury
by Christin Davis –
A Treasury of Miracles for Teens, by Karen Kingsbury, is a compilation of short stories that prove we are never alone. When we need God’s love?or a miracle-he responds.
These true tales of young people from all across America will grip your heart and immerse you in real answers to prayer.
In one story, a 15-year-old football player from California saved two young girls while on a family vacation in the south of France-the rescue was perilous, but the boy had no idea it would change the course of his own life forever.
In another story, at the moment a soldier was held at gunpoint by the enemy during the Gulf War, his mother woke in the night with the urge to lift her son up in prayer.
Another young girl sat in a hospital waiting room filled with fear that her best friend-her brother-would die of pneumonia as a complication of cystic fibrosis. A puzzling messenger reminded her of God’s control. The words she later spoke will bring tears to your eyes.
In every instance, these teens prayed for God to help them through situations and he did.
Kingsbury-a former staff writer for the Los Angeles Times and author of numerous books-powerfully reminds us that “coincidences” are really the actions of God.
These 175-pages are not only for teens, but anyone who needs to be reminded of God’s overwhelming love.
A Treasury of Miracles for Teens is available on amazon.com for $10.36.
