I believe in miracles, and believe that God still heals today. But every now and then I'll hear a story that takes me from a theoretical belief to "Wow! We worship a mighty God!" Ema McKinley's story is one of those. In Rush of Heaven: One Woman's Miraculous Encounter with Jesus, McKinley tells her story of her injury due to a freak accident at work, her two decades of debilitating pain, and her miraculous healing experience.

While crawling around among the rafters in the stock room at work, McKinley fell and hung upside-down, unconscious, for hours before someone found her and got her down. As a result of her injuries, she developed reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), which caused her immense constant pain and forced her to use a wheelchair and need constant medical care. Then after nearly 20 years of suffering with RSD and a host of related medical issues, she fell off her wheelchair. She was home alone and helpless. After several hours, Jesus appeared to her, straightened her distorted joints, and helped her to her feet. She walked for the first time in years.

A story like this is bound to raise questions from doubters. McKinley, perhaps anticipating objections, provides copious medical reports from throughout her illness, along with doctors' evaluations after her healing. There is no question that what happened to her was nothing short of an incredible, miraculous healing.

While the story of McKinley's encounter with Jesus and miraculous healing give her story a bigger audience, perhaps the real story is her trust in Jesus through all the pain. Her faith and trust in Jesus and his word are, to me, miraculous. She relied on scripture, her "tasty bread and butter." "Chronic pain had . . .

Oh, my stars in heaven! This is a MARVELOUS book, rich with well-documented detail of one woman's horrific accident when she fell from a ladder and later developed a muscular disease that left her body horribly crippled. Wheelchair bound 24/7 for years on end, Ema never lost her hope in Christ or her good sense of humor. This is Ema McKinnley's true account, beautifully written by Cheryl Ricker. There is a section in the middle of the book with several photographs that will show you Ema's very painfully disfigured condition. The most amazing and incredible aspect of this book, though, is the beautiful healing she experiences on Christmas Eve of 2011. After having lived in a bent position for many, many years, her body draped at a 90 degree angle over the arm of her wheelchair, Jesus literally pays her a visit! While reading through the unfolding of events, you will almost hear with your own ears the cracking and snapping of bones as Jesus touches her body part by part and puts everything back in place from the top of her head to the soles of her feet.

Oh, my goodness, this review does not do the book justice. Please buy it and read for yourself about the awesome power of our Lord Jesus Christ. Miracles STILL happen, people. We just need to open our eyes and ears so we don't miss them, and for heaven's sake, BELIEVE with our whole hearts that Jesus continues to be very much alive and active in our world today.

I just purchased this book 2 days ago and I CANNOT put it down!!! It's an amazing trip down memory lane.... Ema McKinley is my Aunt; I'll never forget Christmas night (3 years ago) when Ema and my two cousins came over to visit. I watched them help her walk through my front door and up the stairs into my living room, I couldn't believe my eyes! :,) What a miracle! GOD IS SO GREAT!!! If you read this book, I promise your life will never be the same. Highly recommend....

Format: Hardcover
This book is a must read for anyone believing for healing of some sort. It's great for people who have hit rock bottom and for the terminally-ill whom the doctors can't help. After reading this book, your faith will become stronger, your love for God will deepen, and your problems will seem minuscule in comparison to what Ema McKinley has been through.

A work accident changes Ema's life forever. So many mistakes were made during her recovery process, which caused her health to deteriorate at an accelerated pace to the point where she's confined to a wheelchair and even unable to lay down in bed. On top of this, the insurance company stops paying her bills, her husband of 26 years divorces her, Ema is forced back to work prematurely, the insurance company enrolls her in a harmful pain-management program, and it just doesn't quit. But through the dismal, unfair situation, she never loses faith in God, keeps a positive attitude, and maintains an intimate relationship with Jesus. Ema always has an encouraging word for people and deep love for them, despite what she's going through. Problems keep mounting, but after 18 long and trying years, the miraculous happens.

This book is a page turner and the writer, Cheryl Ricker, does a great job with Ema's story, and writes it brilliantly and beautifully. A very encouraging healing book.

Cheryl Ricker has made Ema McKinley's miracle story very engaging. It is well-paced and spaced out in small, easy-to-read chapters that always end in cliff-hangers. Ema's story is about so much more than one major unforgettable miracle. It's about a series of them, all leading up to the biggest miracle of all.

I couldn't put it down! Drawn in, I visualized the whole thing, and I couldn't stop reading until I finished the whole book. I am reading it for the second time now. Ema's life was that of a modern-day Job. Even during her darkest hours, she never lost sight of her best friend, Jesus, and prayed through her big decisions and small day to day events. This book helped me see Jesus in a whole new way, and I am thankful that Ema shared this journey of her faith and miracle with all of us. For those who believe in miracles, this book will still astound you, complete with before and after photos. For those who still doubts, there is a chapter with actual doctor reports that prove Ema's miracle was true! I highly recommend this book for people of all ages.
