From PR Urgent, a free press release service: “Barbara Bernard Miller, author of Mighty Inspiration, offers hope to child victims of Haitian earthquakes. … While many in Haiti suffered terribly, no one has suffered more than the children of Haiti.
“Poverty, poor development, unemployment affecting over 2/3 of the population and one of the highest percentage HIV rates in the world make the situation for Haiti’s children even more distressing. The latest figures from 10 years ago show that there were only 200 orphanages registered in Haiti. One might well ask what God intends in a situation so desperate it seems overwhelming. Barbara Miller, author of Mighty Inspiration, offers words of hope not only to the people of Haiti, but to those who suffer everywhere. She is intimately familiar with the challenges children in orphanages face, as she spent time in an orphanage as a child.
” ‘I wrote this book,’ ” stated Ms. Miller, ” ‘as a way to capture my personal experience and divine inspiration. God has a message that He wishes all people to hear. They are words of love, acceptance, and encouragement to use your personal experiences and gifts to draw closer to Him and to change the world.’
“In Mighty Inspiration, Ms. Miller was inspired to write ‘All things, even the tragic and the sad, have the opportunity to bring you closer to Me. I do not create the sorrow in this world. I do not create the unhappiness in your heart. Life is not a guarantee for easiness or an unrealistically smooth journey. Life is about opportunity to find joy. Life is about opportunity to create good in and for other people. Even tragedies can move the world forward. Even tragedy can move a soul forward. It is in the joy that you create, in the results of the circumstances that you find a connection to Me. I do not prevent all things from happening because I have given you choices. I do not get in the way of your growth and development. I merely wait and see if you will return to Me to find joy again.’ ”
If you’re wondering about the use of the words “I” and “Me” in the above passages from the press release, they are indicative of what Ms. Miller is attributing as the source of this book: She says the book and its messages come directly from the Divine. “The fact is, these messages are a direct communication from God,” she said.
