James Stuart Bell brought together a book filled with stories that will inspire others. I feel that there is at least one or two stories that will speak to the reader's heart and sole. For myself I enjoyed A Walking Miracle, Circle of God's Arms, God Had Other Plans and Finding Faith in Foreign Land. Each one touched me and, in part, told a story from my own life. I highly recommend this book to others. I give it 5 stars. I was given this book by the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

Miracles come in all sizes and they occur more frequently than most people realize. In this book, some of the miracles were pocket sized and others were dramatic saves from danger. Each chapter is written by a different author. I enjoyed reading about God's divine interventions and how these encounters deeply impacted their lives. Sometimes God performs life changing miracles with the help of angels and other times He uses our fellow humans. In the last chapter, the author shared about a difficult time involving her eyesight. Many folks were praying for her and some encouraged her with a Bible verse. Amazingly, each person had shared the exact same verse with her. Matthew 19:26 says, "Humanly speaking, it is impossible, but with God everything is possible." Reading this book was both an encouragement and a faith building experience. I received a copy of this book from Bethany House.

This book is filled with miracles, big ones, small ones- all gifts from God. It is incredible to see God working in our lives, all He does, all He gives us, all He makes happen for us- or not happen. But it is exciting, thrilling even, to hear what God has done for other, and that's exactly what we get in this book. We read of people coming to the Lord, health issues disappearing, tangible gifts and or signs from heaven, learning who you are, learning to be who you are, and prayer. Lots and lots of prayer! Because, how else are we going to have a chance to get what we want- what we think we need? We do not have because we did not ask, or maybe we asked, but we were doubtful. Boldness, crying out for Jesus- that is why ALL these miracles happened. Similar to another book compiled by James Stuart Bell, Gifts from Heaven, we read stories by multiple Christens in their own words. My favorite was the mom wanting to reschedule her new baby's well visit but couldn't. That was seriously a diverted disaster!

Sometimes life just goes along in ordinary ways. Then we start to think that miracles are something that just took place in the Bible. However, God is still in the miracle business today and this book has real-life stories to remind people of that fact. Life-Changing Miracles compiled by James Stuart Bell is a compilation of 37 true stories of regular people experiencing miracles of all kinds. These stories are about people who have overcome disease, injuries, temptations, dire situations and unbelief. In each story, someone shares how God worked through a challenging situation to bring about some sort of miracle. Sometimes the miracle was a really big thing and sometimes it was someone experiencing a change of heart. However, all of them are indeed miracles just the same. I enjoyed reading these stories. While I read Life-Changing Miracles straight through, it is one of those books that you could just pick up and read an uplifting story now and again too. Honestly, some of the stories just stretched my faith to believe that they happened and other stories uplifted me with the reminder that God is still working. Life-Changing Miracles would be a good gift book for someone else who needs that reminder. I received Life-Changing Miracles from Bethany House Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for the book.

I received a copy of LIFE-CHANGING MIRACLES: REAL-LIFE STORIES OF UNFORGETTABLE ENCOUNTERS WITH GOD compiled by James Start Bell from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review. Books like this are beautiful. They open your eyes and leave you in awe. The book includes 40 true stories. They are short, just a few pages each, so you can easily sit down when you have time to read one – or in my case, fly through them all. I found something in each story to connect with. At the end, you will be smiling, and left with a beautiful sense of hope. That hope is much needed in today’s sad, dark world. This makes an excellent holiday gift for that special someone in your life who needs to hear about miracles, or someone like me who enjoys reading true stories about miracles.
