In the spring of 2007, I miraculously survived being crushed between two cars while getting out of my own car in our driveway. It was Mother's Day weekend, and I had just gotten home from buying my mom a gift when I stepped out of the vehicle. It continued to roll and pinned me up against my husband's car. What happened next was a complete miracle--one that I had the opportunity of sharing on The 700 Club in the spring of 2013 (see clip below).
The years following the car accident were very difficult for my husband, Michael, our kids and me. We endured a lot of financial trials. We stepped out into ministry, and that's when it seemed like everything started falling apart. One morning, while praying, I envisioned Michael treading water. Then, a raft came in. For the next sixteen months, I prayed for a raft. I did not know what it was or when it would arrive, I just trusted that it would.
After Michael completed his first contract with Costa Cruise Lines, we received a call from a friend in Arkansas about possible employment with a small theater in a quaint tourist town. Michael, a talented vocal impressionist, was excited about the new opportunity. We packed up our family, as we had decided this was an open door from the Lord. Before we left, I was praying for Michael and the new theater, and the Lord said to me, "It's you I'm resurrecting." I sat there. Then heard it again. "It's you I'm resurrecting." "It's me, Lord?" I was anxious to see what He had in store for me.
Throughout my journey of obedience, I witnessed God work in ways I had only read about. This is my story...
