The Power Of A Story

A pen next to a journal, telling your story

My Story

The Miracle Mann blog was started to share the journey of a miracle. A miracle which happened twelve years ago when my son was born with a lethal form of dwarfism called Thanatophoric Dwarfism (TD). Defying all expectations, my son Samuel lived past birth to become only 1 of 12 survivors worldwide. His story has been shared on The Learning Channel and all over the world.

Samuel’s story inspires people. His story is an example of miracles. His story is an example that nothing is impossible with God. His story gives hope. Hope that miracles still happen and they can happen to you.

Those are powerful reasons to share Samuel’s story. I share it in my memoir, Miracle In My Living Room: The Story of a Little Mann, in this blog, and via social media on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.

Your Story

You too have a story. Perhaps you have been waiting for the right time or opportunity to tell your story. Like my friend, Callie Daruk. She is a mom with her own amazing miracle story. Her twin sons were born ten weeks premature. One twin, Isaiah, survived three near-death experiences, thirteen operations, and liver failure. There was even last ditch effort to save his life by being life flighted eleven hundred miles for a clinical trial.

Callie has quite a story to tell. But she wasn’t ready to tell it until she was healed enough and capable of reliving those painful memories. She also wanted to share how God met her in her deepest need. Once she met Jesus and fell in love with him, she then felt she could share that love. She is now in the process of publishing her book, Shattered Expectations. You can follow Callie at

And then there is Erin Davison. She is a busy mom of four who has been raising her miracle boy, Charlie. Her son also has Thanatophoric Dwarfism, like Samuel. He has overcome all expectations of his “not compatible with life” diagnosis. Charlie is 7 1/2 years old and full of life. Erin has been focused on loving her beautiful family and raising a miracle. And now she feels it is time to share her story in words. Erin hopes her story inspires other moms to believe nothing is impossible with God. You can read her guest post here:

Guest Post Submission

What is your story? Have you wanted to share and inspire others? Are you ready to put your words on paper? I believe in the power of a story to encourage, uplift and give hope. When I was pregnant stories encouraged me. I heard the story of a mom who was told her child would not be born healthy, and yet at birth, there were no health problems. This gave me hope. And even though my son was born with TD, those stories helped me so much.

I am happy to announce I am accepting guest submissions for the first time here at My desire is to share your inspiring story of a miracle and give others hope.
