Ever since his father died, eight-year-old Jordan has wished his mother, Maggie, could believe in love again. A busy lawyer, she spends long hours at work and has little time for affection. When Maggie enrolls Jordan in the Healing Hearts mentoring program, he is overjoyed. As soon as the boy meets his adult mentor, Casey, Jordan knows this man is the answer to his prayers. But when Maggie meets him, she is haunted by bittersweet memories she just can't place.
Jordan's story is a dramatic reminder that miracles are at work in everyone's life. With Christina Moore's warm narration, Maggie's Miracle becomes an exceptionally moving audio experience.

"Readers will find themselves caring deeply about the winsome characters." (Publishers Weekly)
This was a book that I had not read before listening to it as an audio book and it was my first audio book from Audible. I was very happy with the experience. The story is warm and inviting, Maggie's struggles easy to relate to. The only complaint I had was how short the story was.
Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.
This is a heartwarming story of a sweet boy, Jordan, whose father has died, and his mom, Maggie, who is an attorney, is burying herself in her work, instead of dealing with the pain and caring for the emotional needs of her precious son. Both are hurting badly, and Jordan prays . . . the answer to that prayer comes in a way that is unexpected. Karen Kingsbury is a great author and although this book is short, it is a blessing.
You could almost picture the people and scenes of the books by listening as the characters changed
They're several of Karen Kingsburys books that would compare, because in alot of her books God works what I would call a miracle
Didn't really have a favorite, it took them all to see how powerful God is and what faith can do
There were sad parts, there was happy parts and there were happy sad parts. If only we as adults would learn to trust God in the way the children of Karen's books do I don't think we would have all the depression and woo is me attitudes that we have these days. Anything is possible with God, we just have to have the faith, believe in what the Bible says and know that God is in control---may not always turn out the way we want---but it is what God knows we need.
I have listened to all of Karen Kingsbury's books offered by Audible and this one is definitely worth it.
Little Jordan wants a new daddy, but prays that his mom will believe in love again. His quest begins with a letter to God and ends with a thank you letter to God.
Wish the story was longer................
