One woman's struggle to stay alive after becoming deadly ill.

Book Review: Moving Mountains by Jan Haas

Do you believe in divine intervention? I do. I believe we are all here for a reason and God allows us to go through trials and tribulations in order to mold us into the person he wants us to be. To the non-believer this may come across as foolishness, but as a follower of Christ, I hold on very tightly to my faith in Godly favors.

After reading Jan Haas’ book, Moving Mountains: One Woman’s Fight to Live Again, I am even more convinced God has us go through many hardships for a specific purpose. We all encounter challenges in life. In the case of Jan, she faced death and by prayers from her community, church and loved ones, her story of tragedy became one of triumph.

We are not promised to have a perfect human experience, but when tragedy strikes, we must find the strength to move forward. Jan became deadly ill with invasive strep A infection, which should have killed her after giving birth to her third child. Her story re-affirmed that God is good and he is willing to answer our prayers even when we are too weak to pray for ourselves.

Personally, I have never crossed paths with death, but my daughter and youngest son did. Like Jan, the only alternative is to let others help you embrace the pain through prayers. Lucky for my children and me I had an army of people praying and through their intercessions, both my daughter and son survived the storm of death.

Jan Haas’ story is a great reminder that though we may not fully understand God’s motives, but he is always willing to turn us from victims to victors. The one thing that resonates well with me is Jan’s attitude of gratitude. Yes! Instead of being bitter, she embraces life.

So, if you find yourself needing inspiration to remove the mountains of trouble you might be facing, I encourage you grab a copy of Jan Haas’ book. Her prose will alter your heart forever and leave you feeling hopeful and grateful.
