"On the morning of that fateful day in our beloved America...
God scheduled my role."
September 11, 2001. On what seemed like a normal Tuesday morning, Lisa Jefferson left for work-unaware of the challenge God had prepared for her. Just a couple of hours later, she took the most important call of her life.
Lisa was the Verizon supervisor who spoke with Todd Beamer during the final minutes of United Airlines Flight 93. She prayed with Todd, then listened as he and the other heroes on that flight stood up to the terrorists controlling their airplane.
This ordinary woman was changed by the extraordinary events of that day. She writes, "We can live out our days trying to make sense of the senseless, or we can trust God." Her story will inspire your faith that God can use even the most tragic experiences-and that He has a purpose for your life.
