Overview Filled with amazing true stories for and about teens, this uplifting collection shows us that we are never alone, not even in the darkest hour--not even when life takes the most astonishing turns. A terrifying abduction leaves two girls desperate to escape...a blizzard howls around a freezing young hiker...a twin in a hospital waiting room has never felt so afraid...Where can they turn when it seems that nothing or no one can help? The answer is as close as a heartbeat away, for God is always there when we need His love--or a miracle. In this extraordinary collection, inspirational author Karen Kingsbury brings together the stories of teens all across America. Each real-life tale contains proof that God cares about us 24/7 and responds to our prayers, often in surprising ways. These deeply moving stories show us how faith works in wondrous ways for ordinary teens. Their experience can encourage us to keep God involved in our own lives and to experience for ourselves the power--and miraculous possibilities--of love. Read by Joyce Bean.

Treasury of Miracles for Teens, A: True Stories of God's Presence Today Jun 3, 2008
The stories are very encouraging in keeping faith and trust in God. Miracles do happen and the stories help to strengthen the belief in them.
The voice on the tape was pleasing to the ears and was very expressive.....but, only on the first story. The rest of the stories on both tapes were very sluggish and displeasing.
Treasury of Miracles Dec 29, 2007
My teenage granddaughter, for whom it was purchased, was pleased and later told me how much she enjoyed........and her mother(my daughter) who is a Kingsberry fan was approving. That's good, when you can please two generations.
My granddaughter read it in one setting Aug 23, 2007
My granddaughter loves to read,however, she just does not read something she does not like; she puts it down. She will be 14 years of age in Oct. She related to me that she read A Treasury of Miracles for Teens in one setting. She said it was inspiring, but also was a good ending. She said that it made her realize that miracles happen every day, some are more profound perhaps than others, but miracles can happen and they can happen in a teen's life as well. She also related to me it help to increase her faith in a God of Now-Miracles. She said it was not "preachy or judgmental" or overly religious, but related what was going on in the now.
Couldn't put it down Oct 25, 2004
This is a great book. I just wish there was more. It's a great faith builder and its not for just teens, it's for anyone. I'm looking forward to sharing this book with my kids.
Great reading Aug 1, 2003
This is a very mis named book. It is not just for teens, but for anyone who needs a ray of sunshine in their life. In each of these true stories, we see God intervening in the lives of young people, often through angelic appearances, in such a way that lives are saved, or more importantly, changed. A runaway boy finds his way home, a hapless girl is able to escape an attacker in a way that could only be a miracle. A sister's prayer for her brother gives them extra time together. A girl who should not have even lived regains the use of her legs.
***** Real life is filled with the incredible, the miraculous. Many people want to dismiss the coming generations as being godless heathens. As long as there are a few who sparkle as the ones in this book, and as long as there is a God who has such great love for them, though, there is hope and there is joy. *****
