Publisher's Summary

“Ema, give me your hand.” These were the words Jesus spoke to Ema on Christmas Eve - the night He straightened her crooked foot, hand, neck, and spine, and restored her mobility. Easter weekend, 18 years earlier, an ordinary workday turned into a nightmare when Ema McKinley passed out and was left hanging upside down in the storage room. Rather than improving, Ema’s body became progressively bent and disfigured. Doctors diagnosed Ema with reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), an extremely painful trauma-induced disease which led to Ema’s hand and foot deformities, painful sores, insomnia, gastrological distress, curvature of the neck and spine, heart and lung failure, and permanent confinement to a wheelchair. Once an athletic, powerhouse woman with multiple jobs and volunteer positions, Ema became a modern-day Job who lost everything except her faith and desire to trust God more fully. Ema wrestled with pain, anger, and forgiveness, but now takes the listener on a healing miracle encounter of Biblical proportions.

Rush of Heaven will ignite listeners’ passion for Jesus and help them walk hand-in-hand with Him through life’s darkness. It will open hearts to embrace the impossible. “Jesus gave me this miracle for you too!” - Ema McKinley

Great story, telling a bit cheesy

I’m inspired & convicted by Ema’s story, though the explanation of a powerful life was a bit dry

Such a Beautiful Story

In this in-depth story, Ema explains how she came to be disabled and confined to a wheelchair. Then, she unfolds the story of how Jesus manifested himself to her in bodily form and how he healed her body. If you need to encourage a friend who is believing for healing, please share this book!! Ema is active on Facebook, and you can follow her continued story of victory there.

God is good ...all that time God is good

As person with a disability, I can relate with Ema in many ways, and this book has given me hope, inspired me, reminded me to “keep my eyes on Jesus,” to try to be more like Jesus and to never give up. Thank you for writing this book Ema and God bless all that are touched by Ema’s story. Praise God for all His blessings and healings. Jackie Wright

Great testimony

It was so amazing to hear how Jesus showed up for this woman. After all of the years of anguish and pain, she always kept her faith in Him. Her positive attitude inspired me.

Proof for the Non-believer

This is a story that needed to be told. Didn't even have to leave the planet to meet Jesus. And, the same thing happening in the Book of Luke...incredible. If you don't like people that talk Jesus a lot, this may not be for you. If anyone has good reason to talk Jesus, she certainly does. Not wild about the narrator.

Beautiful =)

This book can be gut wrenching at times and hard to digest as Emma goes through all of her struggles and pain, but, if you are looking for a modern day miracle, YOU FOUND ONE.
