Must read this moving memoir! Nov 8, 2009
"God Said Yes" is a magnificently written, utterly captivating story of hope, faith and endurance. Together, Heather Hornback-Bland and Ninie Hammon, share Heather's incredible life story. In 1973 at age 4, Heather was in a horrible car accident that annihilated many of her internal organs. Her life became an endless series of critical surgeries...over 180 as of 2007. Time and time again, she proved her doctors wrong, after they had predicted a dire outcome. Her lengthy hospital stays were eye-opening...showing her that there were many patients in worse shape than she was. Through it all, she trusted God and found comfort in His love. While waiting for Him to reveal His ultimate plan for her, she made the choice to concentrate on the joy in her life rather than the sorrow.
The authors' engaging writing style captured my heart and never let go. Abounding with life's lessons, this compelling book reminded me to cherish all the blessings that God has given me. As a result, I will forever reflect on my own life differently. This is one memoir I'll never forget. I highly recommend it.
awesome book!! Apr 10, 2008
When I first read this book on the plane, I took an hour just to read through the first chapter. I had to compose myself and stop myself from weeping from the details of what Heather went through. A really amazing woman with an incredible strength. What ever could go wrong for her, went wrong. But in the midst of all these tribulations and trials, she emerge victoriously. This book, reminded me that how fortunate I am with what I have and should even feel ashamed whining over small petty little hiccups of my life. And through this book, I came to the realization on how amazing God had worked through Heather as a living testimony. Heather, update us from the last incident that you went through! You are not done yet!
God Said Yes "Great book" Jan 31, 2008
I would Highly recommend this book. If you want a book that is very up lifting and moving.
A Testament to the Human Spirit Jan 30, 2008
This is an amazing story of survival against terrible odds. Heather survives a devastating car accident, horrific abuse, dozens of awful surgeries and usually fatal infections - and all with a positive attitude and a zest for life.
I agree there are inaccuracies with some of the medical stuff. I chalk that up to her not being a medical professional (as I am.) When a patient doesn't fully understand what is going on medically they tend to get things wrong.
The title makes it sound like it's another one of those religious books. It's not. It's for anyone who wishes to be inspired by one woman's candid, often painful life story.
Well written and inspirational Jan 17, 2008
Heather's story is amazing. She certainly has a will to live. The writing was clear and a great read. Kudo's to either or both writers. I must add, as an R.N., there were several medical descrepancies which are not feasible. Especially on pages 231 and 326. By the end of the book, I was wondering how much of her story is overstated. Also, personally experiencing a solid, spiritual foundation; I find it hard to understand how Heather could curse God and hate Him at one point and then continually say 'God never let me down.' If we truly trust God, it is at all times. That is what faith in God means.
