The Healing Miracles of Jesus
A Physician and Her Faith
“It was the early morning hours of May 16, 2021, when Glen awakened me. He was having severe chest pain, and as a physician, I knew he was having a serious problem. I prayed continuously for the next thirty-six hours. Never have I understood more completely Jesus’ words, “I am with you always.” (Matthew 28:20) Thus began my study of the twenty-seven healing miracles of Jesus as recorded in the Gospels. I analyzed them both from a spiritual perspective and a foundation of my medical training. Sometimes, the miracle elements reminded me of something from my own Internal Medicine practice. I was blessed immeasurably by doing this study. I pray that anyone reading this book will find that Jesus is their only answer.”
