Sometimes miracles are obvious; other times they aren’t. Some people may not believe in miracles. Others of you, have witnessed many miracles.  If you have ever had a happening in your life that made you wonder if you had seen a miracle but just aren’t sure, you will want to read this book. Sometimes, in order to believe in your own miracle, you just have to be made aware of miracles all around you. And for those that already believe in miracles, oh! It just feels so heartwarming to hear about others. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the advanced reader copy in the form of an e-book.

I really enjoyed this book tremendously. I so enjoyed the stories of miracles encountered. The questions at the end of each chapter were very thought provoking. This was a feel good read. Thanks to Netgalley, the author and the publisher for the arc of this book in return for my honest review. Receiving the book in this manner had no bearing on this review.

The authors explain how they were meeting for coffee after dropping of their kids and realized each of them had experienced a miracle. It set them on a chase for miracles. The three wrote The Miracle Chase. Two of the women have penned this sequel.

Hill and Mahon cover three areas in the book. They encourage us to be aware and keep an open mind to recognize miracles. They encourage us to share our miracle stories as that deepens our connections. They also suggest we will find greater meaning in our journey of life by recognizing the intervention of the divine.

This book is aimed at religious people in general. Evangelical Christians might have issues with the authors drawing insights from other religions. They include information from many sources, such as the Dalai Lama, Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Buddha and Gandhi. They make reference to spirit guides and reference The Celestine Prophecy.

The book contains a number of stories. Some may be miracles while others seemed merely a coincidence. Many of the stories highlight one person realizing the need of another. The authors emphasize the role of love and mercy, increasing compassion in relationships. 

I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and independent review.

I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

The Miracle Collectors, true to its name, is a beautiful collection of miracles that people have experienced. The author does a wonderful job of providing a clear analysis and reflection for each story. The spiritual discussion that takes place in this book is carefully thought out and leaves the reader with a lot to think about. The prose throughout the book is lovely and beautiful as well. One of the best things the book does is demonstrate that even small miracles are just as important and impactful as the larger ones. Each story shows different kinds of miracles that happen to different kinds of people from all walks of life. I'm sure most who read the stories in this book will reflect on the possible miracles in their own lives and how we can be miracles for other people as well.

The interesting thing about miracles is that, while I believe in them in a sense, I do feel that they're not random decisions - I believe they are set out in our Divine timeline. As such, this novel was touching and impactful, but I can see people reading and saying, "Where are my miracles?" and that is exactly my point about them. I don't think they're reserved for the select few, I think anything that deserves gratitude can be a "miracle". And I think avoiding tragic or scary situations is simply because it was not part of what our spirit signed up for -- it's not a part of our soul journey. It's not sudden or surprising, it's been written.

This book contains many examples of miracles. The most surprising of all is the one in which a young woman is saved from a man she later finds out was  Ted Bundy. The story sent chills up my spine thinking of how close she came to becoming yet another one of his victims, and how amazing the miracle was that resulted in her life being saved. 

Along with the stories, there are quotes from many different sources  and a chance for the reader to “Take A Miracle Moment” at the end of every chapter.

Opening line:
"If you picked up this book, it is likely that you are someone who wants to believe that miracles can happen." 
(From the foreword)

Are you a person who believes in miracles? In stories that can't possibly happen, and yet they do? Of people who have come back from death and told glorious stories? Stories of hints of someone gone to the other side leaving 'notes' of love only that person would understand and appreciate; people placed in our path to help; and prayers answered. 

Are we ready for miracles? And are we ready to be the miracle in someone else's life? 

Full of stories and miracles that make the reader believe. 

Thanks to netgalley and Worthy Books for the early read!
