After arriving home from a tour of combat duty in the traumatic, tangled jungles of Vietnam, returning to a pre-war status as a civilian seemed unattainable, hopeless.
Finally, about the time all hope in living had disappeared… a long-forgotten box was brought down from the attic.
What I discovered inside the box brought shining rays of light into my dark soul. My journey of healing and transformation started that day because I had entrusted the box some twenty years earlier to “other hands” in the midst of unspeakable, unimaginable violence.
While reading The Healing Box, you’ll discover some of the many extraordinary and supernatural ways God communicates with anyone who is willing to listen…are you one of them?
