Arrive on the scene with Andrea and encounter…
- Lou, a dedicated war veteran who is granted a new tour of duty from God.
- A fearful flock of ducklings that slip down a storm drain during a false alarm.
- Everett, a resilient older man who goes for an unexpected ride on the hood of an intoxicated driver’s car.
- Jenna, a young woman whose dangerous heart condition is both physical and emotional.
- Frank, a husband whose nasty fall down a flight of stairs earns him instant angel status from his devoted wife, Doris.
As you discover these and many more unforgettable stories, you’ll be reminded that miracles do happen, whether it be through the heroic efforts of first responders, the Lord’s divine intervention, or, often, both.

More from Andrea
I’ve been blessed to volunteer as an emergency medical technician for more than thirty years and to work as a physical therapist for more than twenty-five. Help from Heaven: True Stories of Miracles, Rescues, and Answered Prayers from a First Responder relates inspirational and memorable first aid and emergency calls from my years on the rescue squad. First responders have a unique opportunity to assist people in moments of crisis when they walk along a tightrope between heaven and earth. Over the years, I have witnessed miracles in which people have been saved from danger with what I believe to be divine intervention. By sharing my experiences, I hope to comfort or inspire others.
Have you ever been absolutely scared out of your wits? It happened to me several years ago, when my son and I survived a life-threatening elevator accident. When we escaped death, I decided we were saved with help from our guardian angels and the Lord. The accident marked the first time that rather than responding to an emergency call, I was the 911 call. After working through the pain and fear, I realized something good came out of the accident, for it inspired me to start writing. As a result, my first book, At Heaven’s Edge: True Stories of Faith and Rescue, was born.
I live in a small town. Without a doubt, I can say that some of the most precious moments in my life have occurred precisely when I was volunteering to help others. Participating in the rescue and resuscitation of fellow community member is an incredible blessing. Seeing people I’ve helped biking, shopping, or receiving a text from them makes all the nights of broken sleep and interrupted family gatherings worthwhile.
I’m currently the Lieutenant and training officer on my squad. Facing the COVID-19 crisis has catapulted us into unprecedented times. The outpouring of love and support from our community helped my fellow squad members and I to hang in there, face our fears, and do what we need to do to help those in need of assistance. As a first responder, all I can say is thank you! I hope you enjoy reading Help from Heaven. Maybe it will inspire you to find a way to volunteer in some capacity.
My Review of Help From Heaven:
My father is a police chaplain and I have many friends who are EMTs, firefighters, and police officers. I have a great respect for their line of work and what they experience on a daily basis. And I truly believe that God is working in their midst. These stories were full of hope, encouragement and reminded me how personal the God we serve is. I loved this book, would read any other books by this author and if you want to be uplifted and encouraged, this is a great book to read.
I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit but was not under any obligation to write a review. All opinions are strictly mine.
