DALLAS – While on the red carpet promoting the upcoming film "Miracles From Heaven," actress Jennifer Garner, Bishop T.D. Jakes, the Beam family and Producer DeVon Franklin all explained what they think miracles are.
"Miracles From Heaven," which will hit theaters March 16, narrates the real-life story of 12-year-old Annabel Beam (Kylie Rogers), the daughter of Christy Beam (Jennifer Garner). Anna suffered a pseudo-obstruction motility disorder for years and was unable to eat, using feeding tubes for nutrition. One day, after a near-death fall from a tree, she is subsequently cured of her disorder – a miracle the Beam family credit to God.
"I'm so in line with the way this movie talks about miracles, that miracles happen everyday, they happen all around your life and if you don't appreciate the little ones then you're just letting miracles go by," Garner told The Christian Post. more >>
