At age five Simon was diagnosed to have scleroderma, an incurable disease. Recurring testing, treatments, and ongoing therapy became a way of life for this young family. Attie De Vries writes a moving account of the dramatic story of her son Simon’s healing from this devastating and debilitating disease in the book “A Course In Miracles“. Attie tells of her fears, frustrations, and of the ongoing battle and uncertainly of the disease.
Simon’s story is beautifully written. The reader is drawn into a progression of faith building lessons from parallels of Abraham’s life and the De Vries’s journey of trust, patience, and faith.
Attie tells of how a whole new world opened up for she and her husband Simen after reading the book “I Believe in Miracles,” the story of Kathryn Kuhlman and her ministry of healing. The family began attending “healing services,” studied the scriptures, and stepped out in faith as they prayed for Simon’s healing.
Simen and Attie acknowledged and obeyed God’s call on their lives, and stepped out in faith, attended Bible School and formed a Television Ministry that airs in the Middle East, Africa, Europe and Russia.
“A Miracle” provides the reader with encouragement and inspiration. De Vries writing is timely and relevant for today. Attie draws from the scriptures to provide the reader with solid Biblical evidence that God’s miracles and healing are as available for Christians today as in New Testament times. Simon’s story is poignant, memorable, and inspirational. I hope someday to read a sequel.
