Skiff started working on her first book, God Stories: Inspiring Encounters With the Divine, after what she described as a miraculous recovery from bone marrow cancer at the age of 32. It was published by Random House in 2008 and includes 100 stories of encounters with God, which she collected from people of various faiths, backgrounds and nationalities. In the book, Skiff says that in 2018 there are more laws and corporate policies protecting farm animals than ever before, and more consumers are leaving animals off their plates and eating plant-based meals instead.

“The idea first came to me when a minister asked if I had any ‘God Stories.’ I asked her what she meant, and she explained that a God Story was a miracle-like experience that proves God exists. . . . I did have stories. I hadn’t dared to tell many people about them, but I definitely had had what I believed to be encounters with the Divine. I wondered if many other people had stories too. What happened next surprised me most. I realized that a Divine intelligence that many people call God is connecting with millions of people every day. These are their stories.” —from the IntroductionIn God Stories, Jennifer Skiff shares the extraordinary experiences of people who have felt the power of God’s presence in their lives and been forever changed.

The basic concept of this book is similar in many ways to TIM RUSSERT'S "WISDOM OF OUR FATHERS" in that the author doesn't really do much writing... they just gather and present personal stories from everyday people like you and me. Russert's book involved people writing to him about wonderful descriptions of our beloved Dad's. (Father) This book involves "TESTIMONIES" of people who have been touched by G-d (Also a "Father") in many different ways... and are "brave" enough to share their "blessed" experience... with a world that is naturally made up of "believers" and "doubters".

The courageous souls that were "blessed" here on earth and/or on the way to heaven... and back... are made up of teachers... engineers... court reporters... computer technicians... waitresses... radio broadcasters... clerks... medical technicians... mailmen... TV producers... Ministers... Mom's... salesmen... lawyers... et al... like I said... everyday people... just like you and me.

Some have died and come back to life... some have been warned by a heavenly voice that saved their lives... others have been given a mysterious... but all-loving-of-grace... last goodbye by their loved ones... after their soul had left their earthly body... on the way to heaven. Amazingly... some of these declarations are made by people who said they never believed in G-d... others who were religious... and others who occupied the great in between. That's why this book is so "gently-powerful"... if you're a non-believer... the testimonies are spread over too large a demographic... and cover too many unique situations... to the point that even a non-believer who prides themselves... on it not being logically possible... has to at some point say... all these people... in all these different walks of life... can't be crazy!

I almost died during brain tumor surgery on February 13, 2003... and I faced death in one other situation... and I am an honorably discharged Viet Nam era veteran... and yet... other than gingerly sharing my blessed experience with two or three very special people... I have never had the courage to share my exact "BLESSED" experiences with the world... like these brave and blessed people have in this book. And I applaud them. I know the way most people at large react to such "testimony". A number of years ago a famous athlete known for his strong religious and spiritual beliefs said: "WHEN YOU TELL PEOPLE THAT YOU TALK TO G-D... THEY SAY YOU'RE A RIGHTEOUS MAN... WHEN YOU SAY G-D TALKS TO YOU... THEY SAY YOU'RE CRAZY!"
Nothing personal
Loved it! I would treat myself to a few stories at a time and then put the book down anxiously awaiting my next read. The messages in the stories were positive and faith-affirming, though many of the stories themselves were tragic. For non-believers, it gives cause to question. What was nice was that this book has no particular religious agenda. Stories come from people of all faiths and backgrounds yet all point to the existence of a higher power watching over us.

I enjoy reading a few pages on my Kindle during a weekend break and at night in bed for a few minutes before going to sleep, many of the stories bringing a smile to my face. Since the Kindle has it's own light and housed in a magnetic case, I don't even need to turn the light off when finished - just close the case.

These stories are a morale up lifter and an encouragement to my faith. The book is a light read that provides peace before falling asleep at night.

Jennifer has gathered an accumulation of everyday events that show God's hand in the lives of ordinary people. She has written a great faith builder for those who need encouragement. It is those little moments in our everyday lives when God shows up to say he has been right beside us all along. God Stories is a reminder that God is always with us if we only learn to trust and rely on his wisdom to direct our path. Making the habit to take our problems to God first before anywhere else is a must to be practiced daily.

I love books like this.

Was a little slow in spots but still a good read
Cannot stop reading these stories... will pick it up on a somewhat regular basis. Truly believable. GOD is real.
