Every now and then such moments are so spectacular that we can’t miss them. But far more often we miss them altogether, perhaps calling our experience a stroke of good luck or taking credit for the unexpected blessing as simply “our due.” However, when we truly consider these events, we discover how ever-present God is and we begin to recognize ways in which God is affirming, leading, and demonstrating his love for us.
At times his touch is one of comfort when we are hurting. It may come quietly, unexpectedly, or from the hand of someone he has moved to meet our need. Other times we may be so consumed with despair that we assume God has abandoned us. But he has not. His love is shown to us in subtle ways that we sometimes miss because we are so caught up in the complexity or misery of our circumstances.
Carol and Jennie have both contributed over the years to successful collections of stories published by Honor, Zondervan, NavPress, and others. For the first time they are collaborating, two sisters telling stories that uplift, encourage, and inspire.
Each of the forty stories is between 1000 and 1200 words in length and ends with a verse of scripture.
“A good story, like a wise proverb, is priceless. When family, friends, or congregations can share together the kind of true stories that Carol and Jennie tell in Miracle on Hope Hill, they have found a way of saying together that, even in our darkest moments, there is hope.”
“Lovingly reminding us there are no accidents in God's grand plan, Carol and Jennie present a refreshing and powerful reminder that God is indeed in control and He loves us beyond comprehension. An uplifting collection of God's love in action, the stories in Miracle on Hope Hill are filled with spiritual insight and inspiring truth.”
“Fewer things are more powerful than real life stories that inspire and move our lives toward greater good. A big thanks to Carol and Jennie for harvesting and compiling these transformational stories!”
“The dynamic duo of Carol Kent and Jennie Afman Dimkoff have combined to masterfully communicate encouraging stories that illustrate God’s personal involvement and love in the everyday details of our lives. As you read, you’ll be reminded of God’s faithfulness in both little and big ways—from a desire for the right dress to life threatening needs. Heart-lifting reminders of God in action, working to do far beyond all that we can ask or dream!”
“Whether God sneaks in like a church mouse or moves like a lightning bolt, when He shows up, at just the right time, you know it! Thank you, Carol Kent and Jennie Dimkoff, for bringing us real-life stories of God’s goodness, greatness, and power. With each story, faith is strengthened, loads lifted, and spirits renewed. After reading this book, readers will be more aware that God is on active duty in their lives!”

Through the stories that Carol and Jennie share, you'll remember that God is faithful and present through it all, even the hard stuff, and often working behind the scenes . . . or sometimes, taking front and center stage!"

Not only did Miracle on Hope Hill refresh my sagging spirits but I can already think of some people in my life who could benefit immensely from this book. This collection of stories gives hope to the hopeless and encouragement to those of us who are or get discouraged. It is a perfect Christmas gift!
