Amazing story of the power of love and hope overcoming all odds is a must read!
Apr 13, 2009
Parting the Waters by Jeanne Damoff is a beautifully written story about how God used one family's tragedy for his glory. Jacob, the author's fifteen-year-old son, nearly drowns on a youth group outing and revives only after twenty minutes of CPR. Jacob suffered major brain damage from the lack of oxygen and doctors quickly tell the Damoffs that his brain is essentially dead and that it would be completely ethical for them to remove his feeding tube and allow him to die. Instead the Damoffs lean on their faith and community, and God comes through in amazing and miraculous ways. This is the kind of book that as you are reading it, you have to keep putting it down to tell everyone around you about the events within because they are too powerful not to share. Damoff is honest about her grief and anger about the loss of the Jacob who could have been, and her story is a testament to faith. It's a wonderful book that will bless everyone who reads it.<br/>
