Review: The Seventeen Second Miracle By: Jason F Wright

The Seventeen Second MiracleThe Seventeen Second Miracle by Jason F. Wright
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

How long can it take to change a person's life? Their day? How hard can it be to step outside of yourself and be fully aware? To grab a moment?
Rex Conner took his eyes off of the lake for seventeen seconds and it resulted in the death of a little girl. His life changed in that moment and so did a million others. It took some time, but seventeen seconds to create a miracle for someone else reaches beyond yourself to all those that person comes in contact with.
Cole Conner has picked up his father's lesson and taken the steps a bit further. Working with the local high school, he receives three to eight kids a year to sit in "Discussions" where he teaches them the seventeen second miracle. This year is especially hard, a smaller than usual class of three - a cheerleader, a basketball star, and a boy in a wheelchair. He doesn't know the reasons the principal has chosen these three in particular, but as the time unfolds, so do their stories.
I am a Jason F Wright junkie, I love the messages and stories that he produces. The way the lessons can be instilled in your own life. I find them to be spiritually nurturing and often calling to me to challenge myself, to make a difference, to answer the call to reach outward. You won't go wrong picking any of his books and you will find that this is one that will stay on your shelf to be pulled down over and over.
