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. Hope Out Loud 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.

An encouraging read
This book surprised me. I was encouraged and also spurred on in my prayer life after reading Jen's story, as told by her Mum. It also led me to consider my life with greater thankfulness for the ordinary blessings I forget to acknowledge to God. I am so amazed by the work of the Spirit in and through Jen and her family.

Powerful and Perspective Changing
"We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28) This can seem like a pat answer to the question: "Why does God allow bad things to happen to good people?". Then along comes a book like "Miracle for Jen" which engages you in an incredible testimony of tragedy and demonstrates just how much in our weakness He is strong and just how sovereign He is. This book turns our earthly perspective upside-down as it opens ever wider a window into the heart of the Lord.
I found the narrators voice easy to listen to and suitable for the material. I struggled right along with the mother and came to learn from the profound wisdom that flowed through her daughter. For me, it was one of those few books that makes you wonder if you will ever see things quite the same again? What an awesome God we serve.
