The purpose of writing this book is to bring awareness to the epidemic of obesity. I do not want anyone to go though what I have endured, being obese a majority of my life. As a result of not knowing proper nutrition growing up and into my late teenage years, I was faced with making the life-changing decision to have gastric bypass surgery, because traditional weight-loss methods such as strict dieting and exercise did not work for me.
Miracles: God’s Hands at Work is an easy-reading, inspirational story about a little girl whose mother’s words would lead her to a life of destruction, a life of trials and tribulations. Blessed with spiritual gifts, on a road toward God and through the grace of God, she was born again.
Lisa traveled to Uganda with her teenage son on a twelve-day mission trip. In an orphanage her world view abruptly changed as she held a shivering emaciated little boy who lay dying of malaria. He had no one else in the world to care that he was passing. This experience and others while on the trip were so profound that she is compelled to share them with you. Come and walk with Lisa through Uganda as God shows her His different definitions of “mother.”

On January 19, 2011, Wiley Baxter was fifty-seven years of age when God brought a surprise to him through a phone call. Over the next four days, it was revealed to him that he was the biological father of identical twin daughters and four grandchildren, which resulted from a two-year marriage he had thirty-six years before. Until that time, Wiley and his present wife of thirteen years had no children of their own. Overjoyed and overwhelmed, he began a new chapter in his life. Thankfully, Wiley has been blessed with good health and good employment throughout his life, and this helped him and his wife enjoy the wonderful joys of his children being in their lives all the more. Wiley`s faith in God has grown significantly over the latter part of his life, which he believes is one reason why He set him down one day to share these miracles from God and his life`s story.
