The true story of Annabel Beam, inspiration behind Miracles From Heaven

Miracles from Heaven book by Christy Wilson BeamIn 2011, Annabel Beam, a young Texan girl, had a close encounter with death when she slipped through a hole in a hollowed-out tree and plunged to the bottom of its base. The drop was 30 feet and Annabel went headfirst.

However, when Annabel was retrieved from within the tree, she was unscathed. Next to a few bruises, she sustained no injuries, which puzzled medical experts. More than that, the life-threatening digestive disorders that had plagued her and that had caused her severe pain eventually dissipated. Again, her doctors were perplexed.

When Annabel began speaking of her accident, she expressed a story of divine intervention. She said she was taken to Heaven and introduced to Jesus Christ while she was unconscious, and when she woke in the tree, she was in the company of a guardian angel.

Annabel’s recovery from the accident and the debilitating disorders she struggled with have been accepted as an act of God, and to share her story, her mother Christy Wilson Beam wrote a book called Miracles from Heaven, published in 2015.

The success of the book has inspired a film adaptation starring Jennifer Garner as Christy Beam, Kylie Rogers as Anna, and Martin Henderson as Kevin Beam. Also called Miracles from Heaven, it opens today in theaters across Canada.

    I am writing to let you know i believe your testimony. I watched the movie and it was fabulous. The trailer was different from the movie it seemed. Anyway,I just want to encourage you continue talking with Jesus and reading your Bible. Many years ago when i was 7 i had an experience similar to yours, i am now 55. My mom never knew, i tried to tell her. I can relate to what was in the movie,…the way we communicate in heaven…i wanted to stay, Jesus said “you can if you want to (i knew Jesus wasnt happy about that) so i said, “what do you want me to do?”He said they need you down there.i said , ok. He left me with these words, “love your neighbor as yourself”. I went back to my bedroom where i had seen someone in my bed, only to find out as i kept going was only me (the real me…we are a spirit, we have a soul and we live in our bodies). An angel came,,,he had me sleep on my side.
