Jennifer and Linda Barrick:
A Miracle Story of Hope and Forgiveness

Jennifer and Linda Barrick On November 5, 2006, while driving home from church, the Barrick family was struck head-on by a drunk driver going 80 miles per hour. Andy, Linda, 15 year old Jen and 11 year old Josh sustained life-threatening injuries. Jen was not expected to live through the night, but God miraculously intervened. She was in a coma for 5 weeks and had traumatic brain injuries and multiple skull fractures.

The process of emerging from the coma took weeks and the doctors warned that Jen could be cursing and screaming in confusion. Instead, she was praying out loud and singing praise songs continuously.

For out of the heart, the mouth speaks.

Matthew 12:34

Although still recovering and still suffering from memory loss and “Cortical Blindness,” Jen is an awesome example of God’s grace.

This teenager, who was once a quiet, deep-thinker, is now expressing her passion for God out loud to everyone she meets. She is uninhibited in her worship and excitement for the Lord.

In the words of Linda, “Our story is the story of God’s Grace and the working out of His perfect will in our lives. It’s the story of faith that allows me to trust God even when I don’t understand His plan. It’s the story of giving up the dreams I had for the reality I have. It’s the story of celebrating the overflowing blessings God has given me rather than mourning what I’ve lost. It’s the story of resting in the Lord and finding contentment in my life today”.

But with God all things are possible.

Matthew 19:26

God is using the Barrick family to inspire and give hope to hurting people all over the United States and internationally as they share their miraculous story of God’s faithfulness and healing in the midst of tragedy.

We ask you to help us bring the Barrick Family’s story to Aurora by supporting one of a number of sponsorship opportunities.
