In a remarkable true story of faith and blessings, a mother tells of her sickly young daughter, how she survived a dangerous accident, her visit to Heaven and the inexplicable disappearance of the symptoms of her chronic disease.
Annabel Beam spent most of her childhood in and out of hospitals with a rare and incurable digestive disorder that prevented her from ever living a normal, healthy life. One sunny day when she was able to go outside and play with her sisters, she fell three stories headfirst inside an old, hollowed-out tree, a fall that may well have caused death or paralysis. Implausibly, she survived without a scratch. While unconscious inside the tree, with rescue workers struggling to get to her, she visited heaven. After being released from the hospital, she defied science and was inexplicably cured of her chronic ailment.
MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN will change how we look at the world around us and reinforce our belief in God and the afterlife

Get your tissues ready, this is a tear readying book. I had watched the movie, and decided to check to see if there was a book, and yes there was. Have you met Annabel Beam yet? If you have not, then she has quite the experience to share with you. Annabel spent far too many days, more than a child should have to, in and out of hospitals. The reason? Annabel had a disorder, rare and incurable, that affected her digestive system and prevented living a normal life. With a large number of medications she was able to have an occasionally normal day.
On one of these normal days she and her sister climbed a tree. When they tried to get back down a branch broke and this poor little Anna fell through the hole created. It took her family and 3 fire department crews to eschew her. She came out talking about being on Jesus’ lap and guided out by an Angel. Jesus said she had to go back to earth but she would be fine and Jesus has a plan for her.
I appreciated the quote from the movie Song of Bernadette which said those who believe need no proof and those who didn’t believe have no use for proof.
I absolutely loved this book! I would recommend this book to all, even if you don’t believe in miracles.
