'Miracles From Heaven' Movie Reveals Family's Powerful Testimony of God's Healing (Interview)

Annabel Beam
Mother and daughter, Christy and Annabel Beam, discuss Christy's new memoir "Miracles From Heaven" with The Christian Post in New York City, April 14, 2015. |

CP: What was your initial reaction when Annabel said she saw relatives and Jesus in Heaven?

Christy: The very first thing that popped into my head was, 'How hard did you hit your head?' But of course I would never say that. The things Annabel shared about her Heaven experience could not have been made up. The details were too intricate for a 9 year old. The more she talked the more I had no doubt Anna had truly lived what she was sharing with me.

CP: You and your family believe her healing was from God but doctors couldn't explain what happened. What do they think happened? Did they acknowledge that it was divine?

Christy: Officially, they simply said they don't know what happened. One of her doctors said, 'I am really glad she fell in that tree.' Another doctor told me: 'Jesus must have been with that little girl in that tree.'That is what is so amazing about the miracle — no one truly knows. It had to be a God thing.

CP: What can you say to someone who is having a hard time believing that supernatural experiences like Anabelle's are real?

Christy: Annabel is absolute living proof that miracles still happen. In fact, Annabel likes to say, 'God is still in the business of doing miracles.' I would challenge them to read the book, Miracles From Heaven and see the movie in theaters and then see what they say. It is so hard to deny the undeniable.

CP: How did this increase your own faith?

Christy: Through everything I realized how faithful God truly is in the lives of his precious children. I looked back over the years of anguish we had endured and began to see all the small miracles that went on around us daily. It encouraged me to live a life as faithful back to Him. Because of that clarity I now challenge other people to look up during their times of challenge and struggle. Don't miss the miracles going on around you daily. He is faithful.

CP: Prior to everything that happened, did you ever anticipate that a divine miracle would be your full-time ministry?

Christy: No. I absolutely believed in miracles, I just never thought one would happen in my life. [I thought] those things happen to other people, not an ordinary person like me.  

CP: What can we expect from "Miracles from Heaven" the movie? What do you hope people take away from it?

Christy: I hope people walk away inspired to see those small miracles while they are waiting faithfully on the big miracle in their lives. I hope people take away that there is always hope in times of struggle, challenge and darkness.
