At a young age, Annabel had been diagnosed with pseudo-obstruction motility disorder, a permanent and painful stomach disease that is rare and deemed incurable. Annabell was required from a young age to take numerous amounts of medication just to live her daily life. Upon attending class at school or living at home, she needed heating pads constantly on her to simply dull the pain; a constant symptom that dominated her daily life. But that all changed one day when playing outside. Her mother Christy had been working in the kitchen until Annabel's Sister came rushing in screaming that Annabel had been climbing a tree and that she had fallen into a hole beneath it. Her mother rushed outside and was astonished that this tree had happened to have had an empty hole beneath it. When looking deep into it, her daughter was nowhere to be found. When emergency workers had finally pulled Annabel out, she appeared calm, and with no bruises or broken bones. Upon taking her to the hospital, the circumstance seemed stranger. The doctors confirmed that she had fell roughly 30-feet, and yet only suffered a minor concussion. But what was even more strange was what Annabel told her motherly calmly as she was recovering. " I sat on Jesus' lap, and He said it wasn't my time.' The Doctors were astonished to discover that Annabel did not only not suffer a severe concussion from the fall, but that she had been miraculously cured of her stomach illness.
Annabel is now 12 years old is living healthy and without the stomach problems that once burdened her to a couch with warming pads. Annabell is not shy to respond to those who cast a shadow of a doubt, this twelve-year-old girl responds humbly: "I don't say anything to those who criticize and don't believe. What I do say is, this is my story, and it is real and I am living proof of a miracle. I'm not going to shove it down your throat, but if you allow it to, it could change your life, it could help you to have a relationship with Jesus if you don't have one."
This spring this miraculously Christian story will hit theaters, and is attracting a lot of news and trends on the web. Gospel Herald had the opportunity to interview Christy Beam, the author of Miracles from Heaven and Annabel's mother, and when asked on what to take from this film she responded that she "hopes it provides hope and encouragement to others, but it also reminds them that God is faithful in the little things."
