Summary

On the night of November 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 didn't remember her middle name, recognize her parents, or recall that she had a little brother, 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, Jen's mother Linda wanted God to heal Jen, 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 - and the whole Barrick family - 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.

Heart breaking and heart warming all at once

The Story of Jen's battle back to health after a terrible accident has stayed with me almost a year after I read it.

The devotion of her parents and her own determination have left me holding my breath as I listen at times.

I love the note that Jen had written that her Mum used to punctuate the story telling.



Wonderful book of hope

Bec's books

This book is such an amazing story of love and the determination never to give up. It also shows if you put all your trust in God things will get bettter. Forgiveness can sometimes be very hard but Jen proves you can forgive and move on with your life no matter how hard it gets. I would Highly recommend this book .

Courage in Suffering

Where does Miracle for Jen rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I would rate as a 4.5 out of 5.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Miracle for Jen?

The description of the injuries to each family member was hard to hear. As was the reports by physicians on Jen's extensive brain injuries. There were many moments that touched my heart. Jen has an amazing family, friends and support from the church. Acts of love and perseverance by her father & mother while recovering from their own injuries is very moving. The Dad carried coffee upstairs each morning to his wife, while walking with a crutch & dealing with chronic pain. Her mother's perseverance & selfless care and some of the emotions she shares in her journey. The amazing prayers and spiritual insight that Jen shared with others after the accident. This book amazed me by consistently praising God in the midst of so much suffering. It is a message of hope.

What does Kirsten Potter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I thought it was Jen's mother telling the story. Enjoyed it!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Courage in the midst of suffering.
