“Do not see the cross you bear as an obstacle, but as an opportunity.” —Father Dan
Author Laura Murphy was involved in a serious car crash in October 1987. Twenty years later, she became a minister of care at a large Chicago hospital. She used her tragic experience as an “opportunity” to better relate to each patient and understand his or her pain.
My Opportunity with God is a collection of true stories about those visits. Each story is much more than a memoir or straightforward report. They all end with the statement of the learned message.
Laura Murphy is the second girl of a three-daughter, Irish-Catholic family. She was in a serious car crash soon after high school graduation. Her survival made her faith stronger. She graduated from the University of Illinois. She and her husband are happily married and living in Chicago.
