A Tragic Accident, a Mother's Desperate Prayer, and Heaven's Extraordinary Answer
By Linda Barrick
On the night of Nov. 5, 2006, the Barrick family was driving home from church when their van was struck by a drunk driver. Fifteen-year-old Jen suffered multiple skull fractures and severe brain trauma and was not expected to survive the night. But against all odds, she did. As she lingered in a coma, doctors warned that if Jen ever woke up, she would be cursing and screaming in confusion due to her brain injuries. Instead, after five weeks she opened her eyes and began praying and praising God. Jen didnÌÎ_Ì´åÇt remember her middle name, recognize her parents or recall that she had a little brother ÌÎ_Ì´å but she remembered Jesus and every word to every praise song and Scripture she had hidden in her heart before the accident. As any loving mother would, JenÌÎ_Ì´åÇs mother Linda wanted God to heal Jen ÌÎ_Ì´å make her like she was before. Normal. But a loving God had something else in mind: Instead of making her normal, God is making Jennifer ÌÎ_Ì´å and the whole Barrick family ÌÎ_Ì´å extraordinary, miraculous. "Miracle for Jen" is the remarkable true story of a family who overcame tragedy and learned to trust God's plan for their lives in a whole new way.
