Annabel Beam spent most of her childhood in and out of hospitals with a rare and incurable digestive disorder that prevented her from living a normal, healthy life. One sunny day when she was able to go outside and play with her sisters, she fell three stories headfirst into an old, hollowed-out tree. Implausibly, she survived without a scratch. While unconscious inside the tree, with rescue workers struggling to get to her, she visited heaven. After being released from the hospital, she defied science and had inexplicably recovered from her chronic ailment.

When Christy returns to church to speak with her pastor about the suffering her family has endured, he tells her that walking with God feels better than walking without Him. Even though it can be easy to cling to despair in a world that offers tangible evidence of suffering, why is faith the better choice, not only in the midst of the crisis, but also in the long run?
