Parting the Waters: Finding Beauty in Brokenness


When a tragic drowning accident leaves fifteen-year-old Jacob in a coma, the faith of his family and community is shaken to its foundation. Medical experts used phrases such as persistent vegetative state and said, Jacob will never wake up, but Jacob's parents knew God would have the final say. Without sugar-coating the realities of pain and suffering, Parting the Waters presents the heart-warming, true story of what can happen when a community rallies around one wounded family. While Jacob's parents struggle to preserve their faith and family, the prayers and innovative efforts of community members result in Jacob's gradual awakening. Each dramatic milestone in Jacob's recovery creates a new ripple, touching and changing many lives forever. Told from a mother's perspective, Parting the Waters is a poignant tale of unexpected beauty found in brokenness. Hide synopsis
