Sick newborn blessed with God's power of healing



LONGWOOD, FL Healing Hands of God ($10.99, paperback, 9781612157702) is a true story written by Suzan Custer Oxtal to glorify God and to share with others how He healed her son who had little to no chance of surviving after birth. Oxtal expresses how He revealed his power and grace to her family with hopes that this book encourages readers to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Healing Hands of God portrays how God worked in Oxtal's life and how she continues to seek a strong relationship with Him.

Healing Hands of God shows that faithfulness can prove how awesome and powerful God is.

Over the years she has watched her son grow into a strong young man; was prompted by the Holy Spirit to testify to the incredible events that occurred after his birth. Healing Hands of God started out as a chronicle for Oxtal's children but has since turned into a story of a modern-day miracle that will provide comfort to others.
